Tell me a story.
Captain Spark pumped out ANOTHER collection of dialogue snippets - you can grab the whole pack on his website, or see them individually in our Dialogue Databank. Good stuff! (Louis Wu 20:56:12 UTC)

I have lost it!
Captain Spark put up another twenty dialogue snippets yesterday; on his own website, they're now available for individual download, or you can search for particular text in our Dialogue Databank. (Current volume of Halo 2 dialogue: 853 snippets.) (Louis Wu 14:21:36 UTC)

One Last Ambient Snippet
A couple of days ago, WraithX found one more Swahili clip on Outskirts - he posted it, along with a guide to finding all the overhead speakers on the level, on our forum. Rehema came by and translated it - we've added it to our Dialogue Databank. Thanks, guys! (We don't know for SURE that there aren't any more snippets - you might hear something new, for example, when in possession of the IWHBYD skull. Or via some other trigger. This seems to be the lot, though, for regular gameplay.) (Louis Wu 12:12:29 UTC)

I couldn't have said it better myself.
Captain Spark released another bundle of dialogue snippets on his website; we've added them to our Dialogue Databank, as well. Elites, Grunts, and a couple of Marine bits... (Louis Wu 23:07:49 UTC)

Follow Me To Victory!
Captain Spark posted another batch of dialogue snippets on his website yesterday - all elites, this time around. We've added them to the Dialogue Databank. (Louis Wu 20:53:20 UTC)

One minute to win.

More Swahili Snippets
Yesterday, WraithX posted three new Swahili clips he found in the final tunnel in Outskirts - and rehema once again translated these to English for us. We've added all three (with their translations) to our Dialogue Databank... along with a multiplayer sound submitted by Remotemonkey. Coming up on 800 Halo 2 snippets! (Louis Wu 13:08:21 UTC)

Oxygen - bah.
After a sizeable stretch without submissions, the Halo 2 Dialogue Databank grows by 22 snippets, from three separate submitters. Captain Spark found a fantastic whiney grunt (forum thread is here), thesaelens tossed us another group of grunt quotes, and Icy Guy sent along the beginnings of our Halo 2 Multiplayer category. Check 'em out! Update: Whoa - it looks like Captain Spark was actually way busier than all that. He recorded another 53 snippets yesterday, in a marathon 11 hour session - you can grab them all at his website. I've separated out the duplicates, and added the 46 new ones to our databank - the same link from earlier today will get you there (or this one will get you just Captain Spark's entries). It's awesome to hear a snippet from the E3 2000 video in Halo 2! (Louis Wu 14:44:14 UTC)

Feets don't fail me now!
Captain Spark continues to collect large quantities of Halo 2 dialogue - he's posted another batch on his website (zip file, 1.3 mb). You can see the individual snippets in our Dialogue Databank, as well. Some pretty funny ones in there this time! (Louis Wu 17:35:47 UTC)

More Swahili Clips
Thanks once again to our forumgoers; Overridea grabbed another 7 Swahili sound snippets off of Outskirts, and rehema again translated; you can find all seven in our Dialogue Databank. These are much more what you'd expect to hear in a city under siege. (Nice pickup by Anton P. Nym, as well.) Good work, all! (Louis Wu 23:18:11 UTC)

Swahili announcements - translated
Yesterday, we pointed out that Frankie had hinted that some of the Swahili announcements, audible on the Outskirts level, might contain material of interest to fans. Last night, rehema popped onto our forum, and with some file help from m32, was able to listen to the clips - and translate them. We've added all 7 unique clips that ZexGX found a few weeks ago, plus one new one posted by Armum Infirni last night, to our Dialogue Databank, along with the original Swahili transcriptions and rehema's translations. Go take a look! Update: It looks like replay went the next step, and googled the translations... many are Swahili proverbs. It's the Old Man Maji quote that intrigues me... it's not a proverb, and there's no clear tie to a Halo 2 plot point; what's this about? (Louis Wu 14:24:29 UTC)

Dialogue, Dialogue, and more Dialogue
Yesterday, Captain Spark released 44 new dialogue snippets on his website; it's a 2 mb zip download to get them all. A day before that, we got mail from KaworuNagisa, containing 19 new snippets of his own - most of them from the Prophet Regret (including his sermon, in pieces). Some really good stuff here; both groups are full of interesting things. You can peruse the entire new batch in our Dialogue Databank, or just look at KaworuNagisa's stuff, or just look at Captain Spark's stuff. Oh, the choices you have! (Louis Wu 17:54:26 UTC)

Halo 2 clips: now at 594, total
Thanks to thesaelens, for another 29 dialogue snippets for our Halo 2 Dialogue Databank. (There's also one in there from Captain Spark, posted on our forum a couple of days ago.) Go listen! (Louis Wu 11:52:57 UTC)

Another Egg Down
A few days ago, Starman343 posted a note on our forum, pointing to a far more detailed post on the High Impact Halo forum - he'd managed to hear a dialogue snippet that Marty O'Donnell alluded to a few weeks back. This was clearly added as an easter egg; it requires that you have possession of the IWHBYD skull (see the HIH Skulls Database for all known details of this mysterious skull), something extremely difficult to obtain. Even when you have it, hearing this egg isn't a guarantee; once Starman343 had posted, our resident dialogue guru, Captain Spark gave it a shot, but was unsuccessful on his first attempt, and Starman himself explained that he cycled through a lot of dialogue before repeating that tidbit. Last night, Cody Miller proved his Legendary prowess yet again... and posted three hilarious snippets on our forum - so Marty's egg has been found, and added to our Dialogue Databank for posterity. Go listen! They're hilarious. (And nice work, everybody.) (Louis Wu 13:42:48 UTC)

Mighty One Leads, We Follow
Captain Spark has updated his collection of dialogue snippets - you can grab a new batch of 48 zipped files over at his website, or search for them piece by piece in our Dialogue Databank. (The reason ours says 45 results and his says 48 is because there were a few that were improvements on existing clips.) (Louis Wu 20:54:41 UTC)

Happy to be here!

You think he's WHAT?
SaloX submitted a few more clips for our Dialogue Databank; one is pretty hilarious. Check 'em out! (Louis Wu 20:36:01 UTC)

Captain Spark has recorded another several dozen dialogue snippets, this time all Sargeant Stacker. You can find them on his website, in a zip archive (link is in his forum post), or in our Halo 2 Dialogue Databank, individually. Man, that Sarge has a way with words... (Louis Wu 17:29:39 UTC)

Good Golly Miss Molly!
Captain Spark snagged another 44 pretty cool dialogue snippets - they're available for download in a single batch from his website (link in the forum post, 1.3 mb), or piecemeal in our Halo 2 Dialogue Databank. Go listen! (Louis Wu 16:26:35 UTC)

The Prophets chose YOU!
A couple of days ago, Captain Spark released 62 new dialogue snippets, downloadable in one zipped bundle from his website. If you'd rather pick and choose which snippets you get (or like the ability to search for text), these snippets have now been added to our Halo 2 Dialogue Databank. Happy hunting! (Louis Wu 14:55:23 UTC)

The Captain Records
There's a new Dialogue update from Captain Spark on his website - 62 new snippets, including an old favorite. Details in his forum post. (These will make it into our Dialogue Databank in the next couple of days.) (Louis Wu 00:16:19 UTC)

That just greedy!
thesaelens turned in another 28 dialogue snippets for the Halo 2 Dialogue Databank; a split between Grunts and Elites. I'm amazed by how many DIFFERENT clips there are when you shoot your own teammates, or trade your lousy gun for their good one. Go listen! Update: That link now goes to 53 new clips, not 28 - Captain Spark submitted his own collection of 25 new pieces, as well. Lots of good stuff! (I'm not sure what our official policy is going to be on scripted content, from here on in; in general, we rejected it for the Halo Dialogue Databank, but some of these clips are priceless.)

Where were you when we burned your planet?
thesaelens sent along another 30 dialogue snippets for our Halo 2 Dialogue Databank - 29 Grunt lines, and one Elite. Some of these are great! (Louis Wu 17:07:02 UTC)

Nate sent along a soundfile of the Egg grunt on The Great Journey. (If this means nothing to you, you'll need to wait for the Eggs page to go up.) We've added the entry to the Halo 2 Dialogue Databank. (Louis Wu 21:18:05 UTC)
