Halo 4's Essential Visual Guide coming in September
Swing by Halo Waypoint for a sneak peek at the upcoming tome, 'Halo 4: The Essential Visual Guide'. If you like details, this book is for you! Thanks, Def Guru 7777. (Louis Wu 20:52:30 UTC) (permalink)
Wanted: Bad Spawn Films
FyreWulff is on a hunt for films showing bad spawns on Skyline - there are even free months of Xbox LIVE Gold for specific films. Go read the details! (Louis Wu 20:49:14 UTC) (permalink)
One Minute Opinion: Extraction Playlist
Beyond Entertainment's Clicked is back with a new series - this one is called 'One Minute Opinion', and the first episode focuses on the Extraction gametype. Don't be fooled - it's not one minute long (it's actually more than 3 minutes) - but it IS a quick look at the gametype, and includes both a summary of how it works and Clicked's feelings towards it. Worth a watch! Thanks, CyReN. (Louis Wu 20:47:14 UTC) (permalink)
Gussied Up and Ready to Dance
The Halo Waypoint Bulletin went live last night - in it you'll find an interview with Greg Bear, plus the weekly Matchmaking update (Team Fiesta is making an appearance next week!), a Fan Question of the Week, and a bunch of screenshots. As always, you can read it in our Halo Bulletin Archive - quite a bit lighter if bytes matter. (Louis Wu 16:51:38 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4: Old Friends, New Scenery
Skywalker DSP dropped in with another commentated gameplay vid - he and slimjim tried out Skyline in SWAT, and came away satisfied. Go watch! (Louis Wu 16:46:58 UTC) (permalink)
pete the overachieving duck
pete_the_duck decided to review the FPS Freek Infinity addons - but being pete_the_duck, he wasn't content with just a 'these made my scores go up' or 'I liked the way these felt'. No... he went a little farther than that. He built a map and a gametype specifically designed to measure his accuracy before and after application. Great stuff! (Louis Wu 16:41:39 UTC) (permalink)
Wanna know which SpOps mission has 82 Crawlers?
Heh. A couple of days ago, Morpheus asked for help putting together a document which could help players decide which levels would be useful when trying to complete certain Spartan Ops-based challenges. When he griped today that nobody had responded, TDSpiral pointed out that such a document already exists - it was created by Wes Henry a couple of months ago. Ask, and (often) ye shall receive!

Thank you Mario! The Castle is at another PAX.
According to VG 24/7, the Castle Map Pack (due out in April) will be playable at PAX East (coming up in a couple of weeks!). Not too shabby! Thanks, Def Guru 7777. (Louis Wu 16:23:18 UTC) (permalink)
