Clips of the Week - Episode 3
aPK is back with another Clips of the Week episode - this one is predominantly Halo 4 and Halo 3, with a little Reach thrown in for good measure, and a couple of Black Ops 2 clips to ensure there's no accusations of monopolistic tendencies. Good stuff! (Louis Wu 19:25:33 UTC) (permalink)

Beyond Entertainment's Snipetality recorded some of the beauty of the Castle Map Pack environments... absolutely worth slowing down to smell the roses (or the reactor effluent, whatever)! Thanks, CyReN.

He got his 50 in Spartan Ops. Before CSR was even out.
