More aPK (and some Clicked)

April 30th, 2013
aPK stopped by last night with word of Clips of the Week, Episode 6 - it's full of moments where staying on his feet made the difference between winning and losing. Not too long after that, xClicked announced the latest Versus episode - he and aPK face off in a Halo Reach minigame called 'Crate Parade'. It's like a shredder... but not really. Who can get to the top of the hill first?(Louis Wu 15:01:27 UTC)

Halo 4 Ending – Recut

April 29th, 2013
Cody Miller found the ending of Halo 4 to be... overwrought. But rather than just complain, he recut it. It's a simple change... but I have to agree with him, it makes all the difference. Go watch! (The original is here, if you've forgotten the details.)(Louis Wu 22:51:44 UTC)

Every Monday, we feature a community member who does one or more of the following things: routinely goes above and beyond for their fellow forum members, is a positive and active member of the community, and/or sends me mass amounts of cat pictures.

Community Member of the Week

Gamertag: Verdigris.

Origin of Gamertag: I thought of a random word while making the Gamertag. Verdigris was that word.

Current clan/community: Section 3, of course! I'm also quite into hunting for easter eggs. :)

Halo game(s) you are currently playing: All of them!

Favorite map, game type and playlist: Halo 4; Shatter, BTB Objective, SWAT. All Halo; Sandtrap, Capture the Flag, BTB.

Least favorite map, game type and playlist: Wreckage, Oddball, Infinity 4v4 Slayer.

Preferred control scheme: I recently switched over to Bumper Jumper, and it's been amazing to me!

Halo playing style (offense, defense, sniper, driver, etc.): I like dying a lot.

Favorite Halo character: Cortana. The story that 343i told in Halo 4 with John and Cortana was beautiful.

Favorite Halo book: The Fall of Reach.

Favorite Halo quote: "Captain Keyes." - The first line spoken by John in the series.

Anything else we should know? I love making screenshots. This was really big for me in Halo 3, but it's slowed quite a bit since then. The Bulletin spotlights have brought me back into it a bit though, and it's always nice to see others' shots and grab some inspiration from them!
