Overpod!

September 30th, 2012

The Eighth Plague

September 29th, 2012
Hedgemony continues his series of amazing comic cover concepts based on the new GEN2 MJOLNIR armor from Halo 4. He started out with CIO, and kept the magic rolling with Oceanic. His latest though, completely near and dear to my heart. Check out his artistic depiction of a valiant Spartan IV battling the most grim of conditions in LOCUS. Go. Look. NOW!(GrimBrother One 22:45:44 UTC)

Wasn’t Left Enough.

September 29th, 2012
This isn't really Halo content, but if you've ever watched MLG Pro Ninja's Halo stream, you know what he sounds like when he's playing... and 'calm' is NOT a good word to describe him, most of the time. Which makes this ad for Rhinomite, a non-violent superhero game, all the more touching. Great piece! Thanks, PNut.(Louis Wu 16:54:21 UTC)

Unlock and Load Double XP

September 29th, 2012
Following up on their popular Double XP promotion with Modern Warfare 3, Mountain Dew (and Doritos) will be kicking off Double XP for Halo 4, starting on October 14. The site is currently just a teaser placeholder... but the rules can be made visible, for anyone who wants to read them. (The site goes officially live on October 1.) Looks like drinking Dew and munching Doritos will let you double the rate of experience earned in-game... and get you entered for a few bigger prizes. Take a look!(Louis Wu 16:41:54 UTC)
