Now I know that if you're reading this, you found us just fine. But if you heard of us from a friend or something and tried Googling "Halo Customs", you'd be at a bit of a loss. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that - every site needs to establish itself some time or another. Earlier, I investigated our position on the Google and found a small website with a very similar name.
www.halo-customs.com is a small website which peddles these cute little rings that go around your headlight. And do you know what else they sell? Nothing. That's it.
As a fellow halo customs dot com, we feel obliged to let every one of you beautiful people know about this small business. If you've got some headlights, a spare $100 and a beautiful face, feel free to order one today*!

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
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.
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...
I saw this video by RecedingHairlineMan earlier today. It's been patched since, but in this video he shows you how you could use sprinting to accelerate your grenades farther, and faster across the map. This trick fooled the physics engine into transferring the acceleration of your sprint to the acceleration of your grenades, giving them a greater initial velocity.
Apparently the trick has been patched since, but if you believe hard enough it might still work!
The great thing about Red Bubble is that anyone can create a design and sell their art on t-shirts, hoodies, canvas, stickers, etc, and make money! You can create some art, sign up, upload your art, people [hopefully] like your product enough to order it on a shirt, so Red Bubble prints it on a shirt and ships it out, and pays you all the mark-up! It's why I love the site, and I love to support aspiring artists via buying their awesome shirts (I have SEVERAL Doctor Who shirts from Red Bubble). So take a look around! I've highlighted the Halo section, because RELEVANT! The ODST shirts are especially kick-ass!
Now I've always liked the Thruster Pack. Sure, it's next to useless, but it tweaks Halo's physics just enough to have some pretty outstanding effects. The Halo Council made a small tutorial for two such tricks, taking place in Haven and Solace.
If you haven't seen this before, I strongly recommend you do. Like many others, I found the thruster pack to be pretty disappointing. But, with a small bit of knowledge, it's usefulness can revitalize the matchmaking scene. Give it a shot!
Hello everyone, Most of us remember the old days, the days when there were no fancy-shmancy coordinates. We had two crates, two crates and a barrel for a whole platoon! And we had to share the barrel! Back in these days, maps needed moar interl0x, and making even the simplest map was a struggle. That's right, these were the days of Halo 3's Foundry; the first Halo forge canvas. Que the video!
In an unexpected twist of creativity, Zatherla has, with assistance from Hushed Behemoth, recreated the all-but-forgotten canvas. The attention to detail is staggering, and if you never got to forge on Foundry back in the day, now is your chance! Thanks for watching, discuss! What were your favorite classic Foundry variants back in the day?
