  • The Riot 80

    Sigafoos sent word of The Riot 80, an hour-long discussion of their Community Aawards nominations. There’s still a little community news, but the focus is on the awards. Go listen! (Louis Wu 21:42:05 UTC)

  • Gamespot disses Halo 3

    Avi Levin let us know that Gamespot has posted their Editor’s Choices for their Game of the Year Awards, and Halo didn’t win anything it was nominated for.

  • Luck is Taken Halo 3 Montage

    Z let us know about a Halo 3 gameplay montage from Luck is Taken – it’s about seven and a half minutes long, and weighs in at 171 mb. Plenty of sticks and snipes – but lots of other weapons too. Take a look.(Louis Wu 21:30:55 UTC)

  • Recon Armor – worth stealing accounts for

    A pro gamer who was awarded Recon armor by Bungie for a pretty cool suicide he filmed has had his account stolen by a jerk who wanted the armor. The story on Joystiq suggests his account was ‘hacked’, but if you read the thread on Team vBi’s forum, it becomes clear that the account was…

  • Epic Machinima Trailer

    AnTi PRO, from Arm The Flag, let us knwo about a trailer for their upcoming movie, ‘Epic Machinima’. I’ts a spoof of every overdone idea in machinima, all in one place. You can find download links (and comment on the project) in this HaloGrid thread.(Louis Wu 21:14:55 UTC)

  • Trolling the web, so you don’t have to

    Hawty McBloggy has a whole bunch of goodies to show you; starting off, there’s a Master Chief helmet created in Forge. (I thought I’d seen this before – but I can’t find it in our news.) Then, she mentions an auction for an item she does NOT want you bidding on – because she wants…

  • It was a very good year

    Today’s episode of Another Halo Comic Strip isn’t NSFW… but it’s close. Still… I like it. And it WAS a very good year. That’s it for AHCS until 2008!(Louis Wu 11:45:40 UTC)

  • Falling Sand Challenge

    Ouch. So a couple of days ago, gunluva brought a challenge from the Falling Sands Game forum – some Halo lovers over there wanted to challenge HBO regulars to a few rounds of Halo. Apparently, they’re better at the Falling Sand Game than Halo – the HBO team (made up of gunluva, Major Silva, and…

  • Edible Chief

    Wow, awesome. If you’re on the right list, apparently, you get a giant chocolate Master Chief from Microsoft. Now THAT’S pretty. Thanks, Peronthious.(Louis Wu 11:31:26 UTC)

  • McFarlane Series 2 – Arbiter Pics

    There are some great pics of McFarlane’s rendition of the Arbiter over at Kotaku – this figure won’t be for sale until June, but you can see what it’ll look like now. I’d agree with Luke Plunkett’s assessment – those feet are HUGE. (These are, of course, also available at their home site, -…
