February 27th, 2015
This week's Canon Fodder focuses on Second Story, a feature of the Halo Channel that allows new views into existing content. Nightfall is one of the first projects to receive the Second Story treatment, and GrimBrother One's got the lowdown for you on what sort of goodies you can find if you go looking. Cool stuff!(Louis Wu 22:54:33 UTC)

February 25th, 2015

Guest-less this week, we take a look at the maps from the Halo 5 Guardians: Multiplayer Beta.  We looked at the strengths and weaknesses of each map from playability to design to weapon placement and choices and more.  We left the Breakout maps out of this one that will be covered in next week’s Breakout show.  There were some other Halo news things we covered like this past weekend’s Xbox Ultimate Game sale and the HCS tournaments happening this weekend.  Let us know what your favorite map was during the beta in our forums.

Teleporting Projectiles

February 24th, 2015
Interesting! Lord Zedd has posted a video showing teleporters working with projectiles (you fire into one end, it comes out the other). Apparently, this was built into the game, but never activated. I'm sort of glad (I can't tell you how frustrating it would be to be killed by a rocket that came out of nowhere - erm, out of the nearby teleporter - in a matchmade game) - but I can see how this would be pretty interesting to play with! Thanks, gamerguy2002.(Louis Wu 20:55:07 UTC)
