Master Chief Sculpt

January 31st, 2011
So a couple of years ago, we posted a note about Jason Evans, and his Master Chief sculpture - the gallery in that link is (unfortunately) offline now, but we've got copies of the pics. And last week, we heard from him again - he's got a new sculpt, one that's quite a bit better, overall, and he wants to cast it in Bronze, or maybe white epoxy. He'd also like to sell a few, to pay for the mold... so check out the pictures, and if you're interested, contact him!(Louis Wu 23:07:52 UTC)

AH: Start your week off right!

January 31st, 2011

Hey guys, let's start off our Monday with a quick look at the hidden items in chapters 5 and 6 of Dead Space 2. Yeah, that sounds good, doesn't it!


Punt the Grunt

January 31st, 2011
Teo was looking for an old tricking video, and stumbled across a little diversion called 'Punt the Grunt' - use a Master Chief-operated Shade to shoot a poor little grunt as far as you can. PC-only. It's just a 4mb download - if you've got a couple of minutes, give it a shot!(Louis Wu 19:02:17 UTC)

Monday Movies

January 31st, 2011
A few new movies for you, courtesy of Bungie's Comm Chatter:

  • Bungie All Stars Submissions Week 3 shows off lots of fan-created takes on the "Helmetless Master Chief" theme. Some are pretty good. Some... not so much.
  • I'ts been a little while since we saw a Rube Goldberg Forge creation... this one's Star-themed.
  • Dutchy's latest montage is Blue Skies, a mix of Reach and Halo 3 footage. Very short clips.

Go watch!(Louis Wu 18:56:18 UTC)

Op Chastity Warthog Article – now digital

January 31st, 2011
Pete Cooper stopped by to reveal a PDF of the 5-page spread that appeared in the October issue of Land Rover Owner International - Operation Chastity's Warthog gets some glossy mag love! Check it out. (Louis Wu 15:30:17 UTC)

Jetpack Juggling

January 31st, 2011
Cuban Legend let HaloGAF (and HBO, by proxy) know about a video on YouTube that shows you how you can "Jetpack Juggle" the flag - using the Armor Ability while carrying the flag. Definitely has the potential to be a game-changer... (Louis Wu 15:29:18 UTC)

This rink is not a natural formation

January 31st, 2011
godhandiscen noticed an old (2008) video of Master Chief on ice... bizarre. (Good skating, though.) Update: Oops, looks like I missed a post from two weeks ago - thanks, Gilver.(Louis Wu 00:04:55 UTC)

Arby ‘n’ The Chief: Duck Love

January 31st, 2011

Anchor Nine Needs Help!

January 31st, 2011
Bry posted a 15-minute Legendary + Mythic Sabre run (from Long Night of Solace, Rally Point Alpha) - the man flies WAAAAY better than I do. Worth watching!(Louis Wu 00:03:48 UTC)

Harvest’s Hardest

January 31st, 2011
Apologies to GrimBrother One - he agreed to keep HBO updated this weekend, but was then left with a server that was offline for most of Saturday. (Apologies to you, too, Gentle Reader. Servers aren't supposed to be offline.) In my quick perusal of our forum, I noticed a few tidbits that might be worth your time. First up - butsizzle posted a poem his friend wrote after reading Contact Harvest. Not bad! (Louis Wu 00:02:50 UTC)


January 30th, 2011
Speaking of Waypoint, their featured Weekly Web Comic is worth a chuckle or two!(GrimBrother One 19:41:42 UTC)

Assault on the Stars I

January 30th, 2011
Check out Waypoint today for the Assault On The Stars I video, helping to flesh out the UNSC assault on the Long Night of Solace. Gotta love pieces like these!(GrimBrother One 19:38:30 UTC)

Podtacular 248: Black Ops Tales

January 30th, 2011

Download | Shownotes
You requested it, we did it. It’s Podtacular’s first every Call of Duty related Tales from the Foxhole show. We didn’t get nearly as many submissions as we get for Halo Tales, but there was enough for an entire show. To celebrate this occasion, Amplified Silence and Daftlink I17 were on as guests. Not sure when or if we’ll do another one of these, so get your fill while you can. Enjoy
