Halo Community Update

This is a reblog from HaloWapoint: 

BY B IS FOR BRAVO –

It’s been a short while since we last spoke, and as some new goodness is on the horizon, I think it’s appropriate we talked a bit about it. To begin, the additions of Remnant (Relic) and Halo 3: ODST draw nearer, and the team is currently finalizing the exact availability date for these drops. Once locked, we’ll be providing the full details of what’s to come, including the exact timing of the releases, the ODST achievement list, and more. As always, we’ll also be providing the full details of what’s included in the next content update as soon as it’s available.

As I type this, the playlist team also continues to finalize changes for our next playlist update, which is currently scheduled to drop shortly after the content update. There are a few changes inbound, so let’s get to ‘em. Continue reading

Canon Fodder: Witness Projection

BY GRIMBROTHER ONE
ISSUE 25
Greetings! Welcome back to another edition of Canon Fodder, number 25 to be exact, can you believe it? Last week we gave you a closer look at the luscious lore surrounding the upcoming Halo 2: Anniversary map, Remnant. This week we thought we’d keep the reveal train rolling and offer some small insights into what’s waiting for you inside the digital pages of Halo: Saint’s Testimony, by 343 Industries’ very own Franchise Development Director, Mr. Frank O’Connor. Also, in addition to another quick update on #HUNTtheTRUTH, we answer a quick query from the community that offers both clever confirmation and agonizing ambiguity. Plus, a couple of lovely little updates to the Universe section. Read on! Continue reading

HFFL Community night this Friday!

It’s been some time since I’ve held a community night .  So this Friday starting at 8 PM until 11 PM EST there will be a HFFL Community night on Halo the Master Chief Collection.  Depending on how many people there are we will be playing either custom games or matchmaking .  I do have two maps that I have designed that I would like for you folks to play on and give me your feedback .

HUNTtheTRUTH Episode 8: DRIP, DRIP, DRIP

FERO drops a bomb that ripples throughout human-occupied space, calling the Master Chief’s allegiances into question. Did the Master Chief do that? Or are there more nefarious elements at play?

This image has been haunting me ever since I first saw the video from Biko. I feel like the Master Chief is looking right at me. The incident report was bad, but this makes it so much worse. Continue reading

MB grey logo

Four of the new Halo Mega Bloks sets shown from New York Toy Fair have started hitting store shelves. The following images are credited to Liam Schwickrath. (I did a little retouching to make them less blue in hue)

First up is UNSC Fireteam Rhino.

Fireteam Rhino
This set is very similar to Fireteam Eagle. The disadvantage here is that it has one less figure. That color scheme though is much better, IMO. Continue reading
