Drizzy_Dan

Hello all and welcome back to the 343iCF Weekly Site Wrapup. Let's get into things:

 

Primary Announcement: We WON'T be wrapping up the last half of June, July, or August but on the bright side, with my laptop fixed now I should be able to put these out weekly or as close to weekly as possible.

WOO! On the first day the Master Chief Collection comes out our Community Moderator, TheSilverCenturion, is going to be hosting an Event. If you can't make it then be sure to catch it LIVE on our Twitch channel named 343CommunityForum. Which you can find a link to by visiting the thread (Remember all banners are clickable).

There has been no official word yet but The Director has put up a poll for a possible upcoming Staff VS. Members Playdate totally out of nowhere with no warning at all. From left field. Out of the blue. WHY WOULD HE DO THIS TO US? Completely random. Anyway, the standings for the polls are currently listed as such:

Day: Saturday (37.50%)

Time Frame: 12PM EST - 6PM EST (52.38%)

Game: Halo 4 (36.84%)

 

Everyone who attends official Community Events gets the Gamer Award: participate.png

This week's Featured Map is by someone who is frequently listed under our Featured Map subsection because he never forgets about us here when he makes one. He likes his maps to be seen by all. Here's Zandril's latest map named Cypher.

 

GAMING NEWS

 

Assassin's Creed: Unity Delayed

You read it correctly. According to Edward Kenway's article, the next installment of the Assassin's Creed franchise on next gen consoles will be delayed by about two weeks or so. Tragic news for Assassin's Creed fans but the real supporters can wait.

 

Games with Gold - September

The Games With Gold for the month of September have been revealed and brought to us by Adam. For the Xbox One we have Super Time Force (what?) and Crimson Dragon (???). Ooook. And for Xbox 360 we're getting Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine and HALO: REACH! Leave your thoughts and likes with Adam by visiting his thread.

Condolences to anyone still facing problems with playing online with friends because you have a Playstation.
