A couple of cool things from HaloWaypoint we missed last week:

Morpheus Montage Monday – ‘Already Over – A Halo 2 Montage’ by BlaziN

March 21st, 2017
Morpheus launches another of his favorite montages to the forum this week in 'Already Over - A Halo 2 Montage' by BlaziN. Here's what Morpheus had to say about this one:

The choice for this week's Long side theme is almost 15 minutes long and was made about 5 years ago. Some people may not like it--the player, xxBlaziN 187 looks like the kind of person spending too long knowing all the ins and outs of the system, but his skills are absolutely jaw-dropping regardless. You will never comprehend how someone can chain together so many different complicated button combos flawlessly, and under pressure. It's hard not to smile at the editing here; it's simple, yet completely embodies the spirit of that "classic" Halo montage feel--you'd think you were back in 2005. While I personally am not a fan of the music choice(also heads up the last song is hip-hop, so NSFW tags) but the amazing gameplay and the nostalgic editing more than make up for it. Enjoy BlaziN's Final Halo 2 Montage!(MacGyver10 17:14:21 UTC)

New Halo 2 Sheriff in Town (Getting Through the Green Door in Sacred Icon)

March 21st, 2017
Grumpy emailed us recently with a killer new Halo 2 video, here's what he had to say:

SLOBSKY decided to destroy the iconic Sacred Icon Green Door in Halo 2 the hard way. The BAW (Break Any Wall) he pulls off is the power way to get in that giant door. Mods went in but they didn't count, I went in but it was a fluke in the programming that allowed me to just walk in. This is awesome...the flat launch, the CP, the BAW, falltime break, this is the old HIH kind of tricking at it's best.?(MacGyver10 17:09:25 UTC)
