From the person that brought us the Hacker and Teleport armor ability, we get another taste of weapons that could have been in Halo 4. The stasis gun is really interesting, just watch it to find out more

Everyone loves these little guys! If you haven't heard of Shmeefs already, you're missing out.

The Halo Forge Epidemic showcases another shiny example of shiny Shmeefiness.

These sure are unusual. Except the zombie kill. That's just mean.

Check out these amazing and stylish trick jumps performed by ReiKo!!
Some of these really blew my mind.

Great job on the video as well.

Here's a fun little clip from the Halo 3 Beta where an awestruck player shows off the death animations for the 'new' Spartans. To be fair, coming out of Halo 2 and onto a next gen console, it was rpetty impressive.

You can go ahead and skip to 0:25 to see the player turn into a punching bag...


Telltale Game's The Walking Dead received much critical acclaim throughout games awards season, including Spike TV's coveted Game of the Year. TWD Game is an emotional, artistic, episodic adventure where the choices you make in-game have ripple effects on the world and your comrades throughout the rest of the entire season. Telltale Games is a seasoned veteran when it comes to episodic tales, having developed series based on both Back to the Future and Wallace & Gromit, to name just 2 of many. Currently, they are in the early stages of developing season 2 of TWD. But they have their eyes on some sweet prizes down the road.

In an interview on Red Bull's website, of all places, they dropped a juicy tidbit about what they'd like to do after they are done with TWD.
343 Industries has a pretty firm headlock on all things Halo, but they have been known to outsource their work to other studios before (Certain Affinity developing Forge, for instance), so it wouldn't be entirely out of the question. A long shot, sure, but a guy's gotta dream, right?! RIGHT?!

Earlier, our beloved ruler and patriarch Insane54 spent the time to integrate these posts into Facebook and Twitter. As far as I'm aware, that means that this will be the first post shown on those respective accounts! Whoo!

Here's an update from the man himself. Don't tell him I showed you this, okay? Just a small secret between you and me... ;)

Rumors surrounding the next iteration of Microsoft's XBOX are finally starting to heat up, and I am happy about it. How happy are you, Lights? Happier than a Grunt on his birthday. There's one important new development about its, um, development (?), and one about its much-anticipated reveal.

Microsoft just acquired R2 Studios- whose head honcho is the brainchild of the Slingbox- with big visions of turning the next-gen XBOX, codenamed Durango, into a true set-top box. R2 Studios focuses heavily on home-automation, which is not something Microsoft is new to, necessarily, but should make significant headway in going commercial and making it more practical for the everyday user. Plus, the start-up R2 Studios was procured specifically for Microsoft's XBOX division. This all boils down to one of two eventualities:

A) The new XBOX is going to make big waves in the traditional TV/cable industry, and put Microsoft firmly in the lead of the ONE-DEVICE-TO-RULE-THEM-ALL race. Or-​
B) Humanity becomes even MORE sedentary and we get one step closer to This!​

My money is on both. Humans are the worst. Except for Major Nelson (SEGUE!), who all but shouted from on top of a mountain that the big reveal will finally go down at this year's E3! With a countdown along with an "And it's on..." blurb posted on his official blog, it finally looks like the hype train is starting to roll down the tracks. Someone tie me down. I'm ready.
Some guys figured out a way to get from the bases on Adrift to the man cannon region using jetpacks. There's a soft kill barrier to prevent camping up there and it seems pretty awesome. Check it out
