Halo News Items
In late June of this year, a streamer known as moistcr1tikal challenged the world: beat Halo 2, on Legendary, with All Skulls (except Envy, which makes things easier) On, in a single run... with no deaths. Nobody had ever done this before. He offered $5000 for this feat. A lot of people tried. Every single one of them failed. Mostly they failed so hard that on July 16, he upped the stakes: the prize was now $20,000. Gradually, it became clear that if this was going to be completed... it was going to be JerValiN that did it. And today... that's what happened. Go watch the 6 and a half hour run to see some serious dedication. (Thanks to Cody Miller for pointing this out in the first place, and MythicTyrant for letting me know of the successful run!)

It's not all fun and games, but a lot of it should be!
The latest Cannon Fodder serves as a final installment in 343i's exploration of cut gameplay elements from the early games—a bit of an encyclopedic stroll through lost concepts that have retroactively been made part of the canon. This stuff is your history, so go read it! (fuchsdh 19:52:19 +0000)
After quite a long period of neglect, the Halo Cutscene Library has been brought (almost) up to date. First and foremost, Halo Infinite now has a page where all of its cutscenes can be watched or downloaded, in resolutions up to 4K. Several other collections (specifically Halo 3, ODST, Reach, and Halo 4) have also had 4K versions added (thanks to the Master Chief Collection), and ALL of the pages have received a cleanup - no more QuickTime .mov files, no more .wmv files, just nice, easy-to-process .mp4s. If you need any of this content for video projects, it's available for your downloading pleasure! As is usually the case when the Cutscene Library is involved, thanks goes to Cody Miller for recording. (Louis Wu 17:13:45 +0000)
