    The Halo Humpday Challenge writeup is now up over at; HaloPlanet might have won the overall match, but KP did a fine job of finding people on the other team to ridicule. (To the sniper in the first game – don’t worry, I feel your pain.) Go read. I’m guessing, though, that by now…

No date…

    A couple of weeks ago, Ninja 0n Fire, the Bungie playlist designer, posted a note on the forums which stated pretty clearly that weapons glitches (like BXR) and superbouncing were considered cheating in Matchmaking (though not necessarily bannable offenses, per se). As far as I know, this is the first time a Bungie employee…
