Bad Cyborg is now local

August 4th, 2020

For years (well, decades - we started reporting on his megabattle obsession in early 2004), rockslider has been exploring the depths of the original Halo physics, and reporting his results. There are literally hundreds of videos in his collection, and the level of his commitment has been breathtaking. Recently, however, he announced that he was moving on from Halo, and that he was going to let the badcyborg.net domain expire. We offered a local archive, and he took us up on the offer - so this amazing collection of videos, started before Halo 3: ODST launched, continues to be available to you. Go explore!

Grim gets canonized in MCC Reach, and so does AFoA

March 31st, 2020
Heh, this is a nifty easter egg. In Halo: Reach, many developers got their names assigned to troopers who would follow you around in the levels. The MCC release added a few names, our hometown boy Grimbrother One among them. But CIA391 points out, by extension that makes this little bit from Levi's A Fistful of Arrows possibly legitimate. Head-canon confirmed! (fuchsdh 23:37:08 +0000)
