Hello ladies and gentle-forgers, and welcome to the fourth iteration of the Meet Your Maker forge contest! Halo 5 introduced an incredible new suite of game mechanics, as well as the most powerful Forge in Halo history. With most players now well versed in both the gameplay and the new systems, we felt that it was time to put your skills to the test! MYM is back and bigger than ever, with judges from 3 different websites and partnerships with many more.
Reflecting this growth in scope the contest has taken on, you the forgers are tasked with tackling the largest-scale arena mode that Halo has to offer: Big Team Battle. That's right, the maps that we are looking for will be designed for full-scale, 8 vs. 8 player combat! This is an opportunity to explore the full suite of sandbox options available in Halo 5, as well as to really push the new forge to its limits. Of course, there's more to making a great BTB map that just making it big, they still need to play tight and fast paced! We can't wait to see what kind of incredible, original designs come out of this contest. Good luck, and happy forging!
Each of the three winners will receive the following prizes.
- Video and written features from various partners associated with the contest
- A Halo 5 poster, signed by the team at 343 Industries
- An in-game Arena REQ Bundle
Maps should be designed for one or more of the following modes.
- Big Team Assault (Magnums)
- Big Team CTF (Magnums)
- Big Team Slayer (Magnums)
- Big Team Strongholds (Magnums)
- Maps must be created in Halo 5: Guardians' forge mode
- Maps already integrated into Halo 5: Guradians' matchmaking playlists are not eligible
- Maps created by staff members of HaloCustoms, 343Industries Community Forum,...
Greetings one and all, for it is that slightly overdue time to cover this week's Deals with Gold!
There is quite a lot on offer this week on both systems making it quite difficult to make a fair recommendation.
Over on Xbox One there seems to be a focus on indie titles. The best value of which is OlliOlli, a hard as nails 2D arcade skateboarding game at 80% off. I've played it on PC and it's pretty fun.
Over on Xbox 360 is what Microsoft is branding the "Super Sale". There is a selection backwards compatible titles on offer as well as other popular titles. I mark content that is backwards compatible with and titles that have been confirmed to become backwards compatible but are not yet available will be marked with a humble .
As per the usual, all of this week's deals for both systems can be found below;
Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster, the drink described as the alcoholic equivalent of a mugging; expensive and bad for the head. For a more relaxing experience, raise your thumb and see where hitchhiking can take you, such as down the road 3 blocks before you are kicked out for your terrible singing voice, or kidnapped and held for ransom by Australian candy burglars.
However you choose to celebrate, make sure you have Zarking good time this Towel Day!
You most definitely did not read that wrong because I thought I did at first! Halo 5: Guardians Forge is coming to Windows 10 PCs later this year! The forge team at 343 Industries has, once again, dropped the mic to go above and beyond again to grace our PCs with the glory that is Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 PCs. Not only will Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition include forge but on top of that we're receiving the FULL custom games experience with all arena maps and gametypes included (however you can only invite players from your friends list). Did I forget to mention that its free?
This is huge for avid forgers and PC gamers alike. What is everybody's take on this? Does anyone else have a gaming PC standing by, ready to take on the bull that is Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition by the horns? Are you considering getting (adderrson and I would recommend building one ) a gaming PC now? Discuss or post a related reaction image below.
Meanwhile, take a gander at the whopping ton of info below that we've got from multiple sources on Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition.
An interesting week is upon us once more for shooter fans.
Over on Xbox One this week Just Cause 3 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can both be picked up for 50% Off. Both of which being AAA titles from the end of last year that you may not have gotten around to playing yet. It's also worth noting that Battlefield 4 Final Stand is free this week to add to your Battlefield DLC collection.
On Xbox 360 an exciting turn of events has occurred. Call of Duty: Black Ops is currently 75% off and is now officially Backwards Compatible as of today! I've already tested this one out. The framerates in Multiplayer are a bit patchy but is silky smooth and well optimised in the game's signature 'Zombies' mode. Unfortunately the DLC isn't on sale also. But I would recommend the Rezurrection pack to bulster up your total amount of maps for the mode to 7. Anyone for some Kino?
Just as a reminder for you all when you look at the 360 deals, I mark content that is backwards compatible with and titles that have been confirmed to become backwards compatible but are not yet available will be marked with a humble .
