Totally missed this note from Black Six a few days ago - but there's still time! The deadline for our 343 Guilt O' Lantern contest is fast approaching (Friday night at Midnight, EST) - but you still have time to carve, and Xbox.com released some stencils which might help. (They're not ALL Halo-related... but some are.) (Louis Wu 23:59:52 UTC) (permalink)
Fighting in a bowl
Rockslider has returned to the Rockslide Megabattle - he's got a new technique he calls the 'Inner Rise Defence' (and because it's his, I'll even use his spelling of 'defense'). Check it out!

Did you ever get a chance to play with the Scarab Gun in Halo 2? Looks like 343 has added a Scarab Skull to H2A... which turns EVERY gun into a Scarab Gun. You can watch what it looks like as Greenskull plays through - thanks, robofin117. (Louis Wu 22:03:11 UTC) (permalink)
Halo Wars Uncaged
kornman00 grabbed some pretty cool Halo Wars screenshots for someone, but the project never went anywhere. Their loss is your gain - go check these out! (He calls them 'Halo Wars Uncaged', because he's removed a number of limits that blocked this sort of shot before.) Enjoy 'em! (Louis Wu 21:55:39 UTC) (permalink)
Some changes happen late
Interesting... Gamecheat13 posted a tidbit of cut dialogue from the final level of Halo 3 - was Johnson supposed to come with us? Hmm... Thanks, gamerguy2002. (Louis Wu 21:43:39 UTC) (permalink)
A Bundle for US?
Rooster Teeth's In The Know vlog points out that a Master Chief Collection Bundle (non-Halo-branded Xbox One, MCC) has been spotted in Japan - so will we see it here soon? Good bet! Thanks, asa. (Louis Wu 21:41:04 UTC) (permalink)

IGN posted a walkthrough of Zenith, the Halo 2 Anniversary reimagining of Ascension. (There's also a gameplay vid.) We've seen a bunch of this map already, but walkthroughs are always nice! Thanks, Moorpheusl9. (Louis Wu 21:29:24 UTC) (permalink)

Halo 2 - Playable Cinematics
let us now about another Halo playable cinematics video by Gamecheat13 - this time for Halo 2 (Vista). There's actually some pretty funny and even weird moments. Neat! (mastrbiggy 19:17:04 UTC) (permalink)
Gamersyde delivers the 1080p60 we deserve
Gamersyde posted a handful of videos showing off Halo: The Master Chief Collection at 1080p60. There's footage from each game as well as graphics comparisons and cutscene videos. So smoooooooooooth! (mastrbiggy 18:58:02 UTC) (permalink)
How Ranks Work in the Master Chief Collection
FyreWulff let us know that IGN posted a video (and a brief article) that details how the Master Chief Collection ranking system will work. If you don't want to sit through the video, FyreWulff's post sums everything up nicely. Check it out! (mastrbiggy 18:51:29 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Launch Trailer
343i released a Halo launch trailer that shows off a good chunk of H2A Blur cinematics, including the 'Another Day at the Beach' cinematic - it looks pretty great! There's also a few videos showing off side-by-side comparisons of the new and old cutscenes. Thanks, The BS Police. TDSpiral also let us know that there is a YouTube version. Go watch!
