There are many big names in the Halo Community, and in our quest for greatness, we have the privilege to meet some awesome people. This week, we get to talk with CMNeir and MidgetDance from the famous Halo Tricks Series on Youtube. Chris gives us the rundown on Halo 2 Tricks, the series that started his machinima career and some of the other short films and series he does under Neir Productions. We also take a look at some Reach tales from our mailbag. Enjoy.

Podtacular’s E3 2010 Crazyness Show

June 26th, 2010

So it’s been a couple of weeks since we did this, and editing was a bit of a nightmare. Me, Brent and a few other random people talked about the Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo press conferences, with a unhealthy concentration of Kinect and something else that will be covered in the show. You can download the show here.

The Bungie Weekly Update is live - bug squashing, studio shenanigans, teases, and a great double hijack. Go read it! (It is, of course, available in our Weekly Update Archive, as well - no need for Silverlight!)(Louis Wu 02:23:51 UTC)

AH: Crackdown 2: Pin Cushion Achievement Guide

June 25th, 2010

Our final Crackdown 2 pre-chievement guide is up, showing how to get the Pin Cushion Achievement. That makes nine videos for ten Achievements. Of course, once the game comes out, we'll be throwing a ton more coverage its way. Expect a map and about a million orb vids.

AH: Weekend Achievement Hunt

June 25th, 2010


Got a couple of Achievement Hunt's going on this weekend for two rather awesome shooters:

Returning from last week, we have RoboDevil, going for some of the trickier multiplayer achievements in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It'll mostly be achievements like Demolition Man and Et Tu, Brute? He's looking for 7-15 people to do this with.
This is looking like a whole weekend thing, 26th and 27th of June. RoboDevil's on GMT timezone, so get in contact if you want some of the action.
Contact him here on Achievement Hunter, or via his Gamertag: Masked Cleric

Next up it's AGENTxFUNK, mostly going for the Mad Moxxi Underdome achievements in Borderlands.
Things kick off June 26th at 9pm EST, and again if requested on June 27th at 8pm EST.
Make sure you get in on the right session by contacting him here on Achievement Hunter or Gamertag: AGENTxFUNK

If you want to host a future Weekend Hunt, post the details in this group thread to get some frontpage attention.

Intentional Techno

June 25th, 2010
GrimBrother One noticed an article at Kotaku - Stephen Totilo got the low-down on the seemingly out-of-character music in the Reach campaign demo unveiled at E3. It IS Marty's work, and the fact that it's different from everything else you've heard is intentional. Nice to know!(Louis Wu 19:15:00 UTC)

It's like a rebirth of Halo Babies, or something...(Louis Wu 18:55:25 UTC)

The Ultimate Elite

June 25th, 2010
So last fall, we mentioned a project a couple of times (one | two) - a team called 'Kre8-fx' was building an animatronic Elite costume. Well, it looks like they're back - urk just highlighted the latest post from the team on the 405th forums... and I'm having trouble pulling my jaw up off the floor. There are a pair of images you can see in the post itself, plus a few more down below (if you've got a login for the 405th); if you don't, we've hosted local copies of these three (we'll pull 'em if that's a problem). Check head | spy | scary - amazing stuff.(Louis Wu 18:37:58 UTC)

Friday Video Fever

June 25th, 2010
New vids for you, up on Bungie's Comm Chatter this afternoon:

  • The Detonation is a Halo 3 montage from Kottiz - guy likes his sniper.
  • Top 10 Halo 3 Splatters: Episode 54 is the latest from Anoj - lots of splats.
  • Cloud (a Pro player with Team Instinct) gave a bunch of clips to Vidol, who put together a teaser montage to advertise something coming out soon. Fast cuts, but you still see the ridiculous gameplay.

Go watch! (Louis Wu 18:35:15 UTC)

New technology is great... until they learn to use it against you.
