Emergency Response
Episode 12 of the Codex Series, 'Emergency Response', has been posted - 6:40 worth of great storyline, cinematography, voice work. This one rocks. Go watch. Thanks, trigger119. (Louis Wu 11:10:38 UTC)

A Montage - and a reason to watch them
A few days ago, we mentioned a high-quality montage vid released on Halo2Forum.com. It was submitted to our Movie Peer Review Rating System, as well - and has passed. If you already grabbed the ginormous WMP9 version at halo2forum.com, you can pass on this - but if you haven't, you might want to take a look. The thread referenced in that previous post is full of people complaining that Vrbas isn't a spectacular-enough Halo player to warrant praise for the montage - but I'd disagree. He's good - but that's not really the point. The point is that he made a really well-constructed montage; very, VERY high quality visuals, beautiful timing, interesting footage. Whether he's good enough to win MLG St. Louis is irrelevant - most of the people playing in that tournament can't come close to making a montage this enjoyable to watch. We're offering a 66 mb QuickTime version (bungie.org | mythica.org) - if you can't stand QuickTime, the links are still up for the 110+ MB WMP9, over at Halo2Forum.com. (If they go down, we can BitTorrent it - but I don't think we can handle a direct download of that size at this time.) Update: HaloChat has secured some hosting for both versions at FileFront - think big, big pipes. Go grab. Update 2: That Weasel Television has mirrors of both versions, as well - thanks, Feenix!

Harvest 2 Trailer
BloodSignature has released the Harvest 2 trailer, a trailer to the sequel to Harvest. 9.5 mb, almost 3 minutes long. You can grab it from their site, or from a mirror at halomachinima.com. Thanks, trigger119! (Louis Wu 20:39:03 UTC)

Where's The Beef?
What happens when plasma grenades fall in love? What's a tynosaur, and why should you run from it? What ARE popcorn shrimp, anyway? These questions, and many more (as well as a mini-melee montage) can all be found in the latest video release from PraetoriaGuard's website - hit 'Downloads', and grab Video Three, "Where's The Beef?", in either WMP9 Advanced or WMP9 Standard formats (thanks, Gideon, for taking care of the Mac crowd!). A bit over 22 mb, in either format - 8 minutes of hilarity and Cheech and Chong imitations. (Louis Wu 20:21:45 UTC)

28 Days Later
I'm breaking a rule because... well, because I want to. Last night, Jamie98s posted a movie on our forum - it's a remake of 28 Days Later, in the Halo engine. It's 25 minutes long, and does an amazing job of capturing the feel of the film. (It's abridged, clearly - but it uses the audio track from the film married to footage from Halo 2, and stays very true to the atmosphere of the original.) The movie is quite large (73-74 mb, depending on flavor), due to its unusual length. You can find a number of mirror links in Jaime98s's forum post - but most of them are limited in the number of downloads they'll support, so we're putting up several mirrors of our own (the rule I'm breaking is the 'no posting movies without MPRRS approval' rule).

    WMP9 (72.5 mb): b.org 1 | mythica.org | b.org 2 | HBO Spartans
    QuickTime (73.5 mb): b.org 1 | mythica.org | b.org 2 | HBO Spartans

Go watch this - there's a lot of work put into it! Update: trigger119 has made copies of both versions available at Halomachinima.com, as well. Thanks, trigger! (Louis Wu 13:36:56 UTC)

No-Scope Teaser Posted
(GT)Juggler has posted a teaser to his next video, HaloGT 18, 'No Scope King'. Great video quality, and a no-scope montage... should be fun! Available in several formats; they range in size from 4.4 mb to 8.4 mb, depending on size and version. (Louis Wu 22:53:17 UTC)

Vrbas Montage

The Hand that Feeds
It's the end of the month, and we happen to have a bit of bandwidth left over. So I went through some of the recent rejections from the Movie Peer Review Rating System, and I found a film I wanted to post. Partly, it's because I enjoyed it - it's the story of the Arbiter, set to 'The Hand that Feeds', by Nine Inch Nails. It mixes cutscene footage with gameplay footage, and does a nice job synching the music to the action. Partly, though, I was hugely amused by some of the comments this film received from reviewers - it taught me that context is EVERYTHING. You need to understand that this film, put together by Epyon, uses cutscene footage from our Cutscene Library, and gameplay footage, taken from Mike Miller's Legendary Walkthrough. None of the footage is original to this film. (That's not what makes it funny, though that IS what disqualified it in the eyes of several reviewers.) The funny part is this: the footage, while recognized by some reviewers, was totally missed by others - there were comments like "this whole thing was just cutscenes with mediocre gameplay mixed in," or even better, "Try doing gameplay footage on legendary, and pull off some awesome moves, like Mike Miller on the Legendary walkthroughs." My eyes were watering, reading this stuff. So it seems only fair to release the film and let others see it, as well. It's 15.3 mb in QuickTime format, or 15.7 mb in WMP9 format. (I guess Mike's gameplay looks much more awesome when viewed in the context of the walkthrough itself...) And for anyone who doesn't believe Mike has what it takes, after seeing his footage put together like this, I'd remind you of clips like this (in QT, or if you'd rather, in WMP9) - it's all in how you look at it. Okay, back to hotdogs and chicken wings - I hope you're all enjoying this Memorial Day! (Louis Wu 18:08:00 UTC)

Additional Zelda mod movie links
The Zelda mod movie we mentioned yesterday has exceeded its bandwidth; thanks to the folks who pointed out a thread on the Gearbox forum with a couple of other links that still work. (We still don't have any other formats for this video - if you can't watch Flash, you're out of luck. Sorry.) (Louis Wu 11:13:56 UTC)

Zelda Mod Movie
We've mentioned a Zelda mod for HaloCE in the past - a movie has now been released (27 mb, Flash format). Take a look! (Thanks, MasterGrief.) (Louis Wu 18:27:46 UTC)

The Autumn! She's been hit!
Starting your Memorial Day Weekend off with a cutscene, we've released the final scene from Pillar of Autumn - our Halo Cutscene Library now contains all of the first level of the game. Go grab a copy! Update: Mainevent noticed an audio problem on the large WMP9 file; sorry about that. It's been replaced on both mirrors. (Louis Wu 11:59:56 UTC)

Halo Cutscene Library Opens
Wow. It's taken an inordinately long time to prepare - and for that I offer abject apologies - but as of today, the Halo Cutscene Library here on HBO begins to be built. (The Halo 2 Cutscene Library has been online for several months now.) Today, we offer you the opening scene from Pillar of Autumn, as well as a film containing all four versions of Sarge's speech to the marines (depending on difficulty). If you're on a high-bandwidth connection, you can grab the 640x480 versions, in either QuickTime or WMP9 formats... and for those on slightly slower connections, we're also offering 320x240 versions (in both formats). At the moment, we've got a pair of mirrors for each film, but we're happy to add any other mirrors; if you'd like to host these yourself, simply send us the link and we'll add it to the page. Enjoy!

The Argument
Another movie has passed through the Movie Peer Review Rating System - this one is a filming of Monty Python's 'The Argument' sketch. It's the work of The7ftman, and what reviewers liked was the editing and environment choices. (Don't look for a lot of gunplay in this one...) You can grab it in QuickTime (29.4 mb) or WMP9 (29.6 mb) formats. (Louis Wu 18:34:40 UTC)

Sticky Style
Another MPRRS release for you today - this one comes from Spuzzum, and is called 'Sticky Style'. It's basically a runthrough of Cairo Station (well, the highlights, anyway) - but the timing is amazingly good. (Gameplay's pretty good, too...) Gameplay is Heroic, because some of the stuff Spuzzum was trying was "a little too suicidal to pull off successfully with a little flair". Flair, he's got - in spades. Anyone looking to make montages - you could learn from this guy's sense of timing. Available in QuickTime (20.6 mb) or WMP9 (18.6 mb). (Louis Wu 15:05:26 UTC)

Outpost Coagulation Ep 7
Tactic let us know that Outpost Coagulation Episode 7 (Canook and Special forces) has been posted - you can find it at Tree Skunk Productions or mirrored at halomachinima.com (thanks, trigger119). Voice acting continues to improve, a new character (or two) gets introduced, the plotline moves forward. And oh, yeah... the warthog has a hangover. I'll toss up a QuickTime version in the near future. Update: There's a QuickTime version here, now (27.1 mb). (Louis Wu 09:31:16 UTC)

Hollywood Halo Goes Jumping
The first movie to make it through the Movie Peer Review Rating System (with a passing score) for almost 2 weeks is ready for release. It was submitted by imSuck, of Halogrid.com, and is called 'Jump Tactics Spoof Episode 3' - it's a spoof of the jumping vids released by serious teams like Jump Tactics and Broncho's Friends, and it's pretty funny. This one features guest appearances (heck, they guest-STAR) by Kealii Maluu and Anti Noob (of the REAL Jump Tactics team), and spreads real, killer jumps in amongst humor and silliness. It's 640x480, 10:29 long, and roughly 50 mb, depending on flavor:

WMP9 (53.2 mb) - bungie.org | mythica.org
QuickTime (49.4 mb) - bungie.org | mythica.org

There's a slightly higher-res version, hosted at halo2forum.com, linked off the HaloGrid page - but there seems to be something wrong with the encoding - I can't get it converted to QuickTime. (It plays fine as a WMP9.) It's 10 mb larger than the version we're hosting. Go grab a copy (either from there, or from here), and watch today! (Louis Wu 17:52:49 UTC)

Lots and Lots o' Movies at GGZ
There is a rather large collection of new movies available over at movies.gearboxgamezone.com - mostly machinima this time around, and mostly in WMP9 format (though a few have QT options, as well). If you're jonesing for new video footage (and I can see how you might be, we've been pretty barren with respect to new releases recently), swing by and grab some! (Louis Wu 16:39:37 UTC)

Shakeycam Map Footage
Several people filmed the new maps with hand-held video cameras yesterday; You can find stuff here, here, and here on our forum (I'm sure there are others, but I don't have time to hunt right now). No time to mirror stuff - here's hoping bandwidth holds out! (And that's it for me, for now - offline again for a bit. Here's hoping the server behaves...) (Louis Wu 18:07:56 UTC)

New movies out of the MPRRS - sort of
Well, it's not working out like I'd expected... but yeah, we're still tweaking. The Movie Peer Review Rating System hasn't passed a film since May 8 - but I've taken to looking at the 'near misses', and I've got a pair for you to watch today. Bunker 27 is an upcoming Machinima series which looks to be following in RvB's footsteps - their trailer is 9.1 mb, 1:41 long, and shows potential. (WMP9 or QuickTime.) The Noobs, Experts, and In Between trailer is a short (sub-one-minute) vid that makes use of Halo Resolution sprites and came off pretty funny to me. (Several of the reviewers thought there was too much text to read.) This one's 3.7 mb, and also in WMP9 or QuickTime. And we'll keep working on the MPRRS to make it more consistent. (Let's be clear - I'm not saying it needs to be 'dumbed down'; I LIKE the fact that the reviewers take the quality issue seriously. I AM saying, however, that the guidelines we've given reviewers are nebulous enough that interpretations vary pretty widely. The Bunker 27 trailer was reviewed by 10 people, and passed by 8 of those. One of the two non-passing scores was dropped in our scoring algorithm - but the other was enough to bring the overall score below passing. I'd like to avoid this sort of situation in the future.)

GNF Highlight Reel at Archive.org
Gah - I almost forgot that I'd submitted the Going Nowhere Fast Highlight Reel to archive.org! You can grab all four flavors (high and medium res, WMP9 and QT) from their download page; we haven't run out of bandwidth on other links yet, but it's always nice to have a really large pipe at your disposal. (Could use a review or two, as well, to keep from looking so lonely...) (Louis Wu 10:53:30 UTC)

Zelda mod flythrough
Dennis Powers points out an update to a recent news post we put up - the Zelda Ocarina of Time mod for Halo CE is coming along nicely, and in fact has released a video flythrough of the levels they're working on. You can find commentary and download links (WMP9 or QT) in this post at gearboxgamezone.com. Check it out! (Louis Wu 10:16:10 UTC)

Fall of the Covenant
trigger119 points out that Fall of the Covenant, his second machinima project, has been posted at halomachinima.com. It's available in four flavors - high and low-res versions in both WMP9 and QuickTime. (Size ranges from 50 to 100 mb or so.) It's the story of the final battle between Spartans and the Covenant - and the visuals are quite good. In fact, my only real criticism is that the movement of the entire movie is held hostage to the visuals; battle scenes are prolonged well past their comfort point in the name of arty slow-motion death. This gripe notwithstanding, the hudless filming and great choreography give this film some nice polish! Go watch. There are comment threads set up both on the halomachinima.com forums, and our own.

Montage Heaven
Wonga. If you like montages, swing by Halo2Forum - they started a contest a few weeks ago, and received 135 movie entries, which they've narrowed down to 8 finalists. Two of those have already been released on HBO, but the other 6 are new to me - all told, you're looking at 500 MB of montage goodness. Here's hoping the bandwidth holds out... thanks, Z.
