  1. Well originally I wanted to get this out on Saturday but this turned into a busy weekend and so we skipped a weekend but hopefully I didn't skip any beats. Enjoy: Primary Announcement: I decided to change the way I direct you to links. I tried to provide pictures and hyperlink them for each section and sub-section so I'm not always saying 'Click here! Click here! Find it here!.' It doesn't apply to all the sections however. ANNOUNCEMENT I haven't seen a time limit on this so I assume it's still going and I haven't noticed too much activity with it so hopefully this picture will help!

DESTINY New Bits of Gameplay Adamj, the king of the News Group, brought us a really cool video from Bungie and it's got some cool snippets of gameplay in it that might possibly tease at competitive multiplayer! YEAH! I already gave a video so I'll give you a link to adam's thread separately here. FEATURED INTERVIEWS The Director - I actually saw him online the other day. Although no longer a Moderator, The Director is defintely someone the newer members oughta get to know. He's a real legend around these forums.

And here's the Q&A Thread! GAMING NEWS Halo 4 Global Championship Final Match Sudden Death http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8l0mONFYdM&feature=player_embedded A totally intense battle in the Halo 4 Global Championship between Elamite Warrior's brother Ace and the all powerful iGotUrPistola. It brought back good memories to see competition like this in Halo. Watch to see the winner and here's a link to TrulyExclusive's thread. Xbox One: First TV Commercial Here's the Xbox One's first television commercial brought to us here by none other than the CooliestRap. Tell him what you think they could've done and what they should've done that could've made it better. Or tell him what you think in general about it in his thread. Xbox One Release Date Confirmed The Xbox One's release date has been confirmed by many across the net. I'm not going to tell you here if you don't know already because I actually want you to visit adamj's article. That's why he makes them. I hope you know what to click to find the article by this point in the Wrapup. PS4 Release Date Also Confirmed The PlayStation 4's release date has also been announced. I won't tell you here so you can read Absolute Dog's article. I'll give you a hint: it comes out before the Xbox One! For more Gaming News check out the latest on our Front Page here. HOT TOPIC Halo Command - Browser Based Halo Strategy/RPG/Text Based Game Started by a member by the name of Glitch100, Halo Command will be a browser based Halo game involving the aspects of Strategy/RPG/TBRPGs which is what makes it very interesting. I support Halo Command because it's just another step towards bringing back the love for the Halo Universe itself and not just the games and multiplayer which is what everyone's been focusing on since Halo 4 came out. This may not be an official 343 game but it is something to look into. Click the picture to get linked to the Halo Command thread. MEMBER OF THE MONTH September's Member of the Month is a very avid Forger. Coming from Forge Cafe, Zandril is a huge Forge enthusiast and it is his favorite thing about Halo. I'll remind you again that the link to his announcement thread can be found by using the picture now. And please, DO congratulate him. He's a great member and Forger. PS. Yes that is the picture that was used when announcing BZ as June's MoM. PLAY DATES I'm trying to make Play Dates come back NEXT SATURDAY. That is the Saturday after this one coming up. I'm going to try to make it a special event and not just some games on one of the Halos. Keep your eyes PEELED! We still want your Play Date ideas. Post them here. YOUTUBE Halo 4 Pan-Cam Feature! Quite a find by a member by the name of Brett on our site. I've used Brett's video's before in the Wrapup so his name might be familiar to some of you whether it's from seeing it here or watching his videos when he posts them himself. Anyway, the pan-cam feature is pretty awesome. It's only accessible through Theater mode. Just watch that video and leave it a like and maybe comment and tell Brett how much you liked it here. Wrapup concluded. Now scroll back up and read it all over again.
  2. How about we just make Wrapups every Monday to start our weeks off right? It's still technically Monday in America where I live.

Your judges are as follows: Absolute Dog (343i.org) Donut (343i.org) Elliot (ForgeHub) GAMING NEWS Dominion to be Removed From Matchmaking Now although there is no official article on this yet, I would like to bring this to everyone's attention so I'm kinda writing on the spot here. If you are not aware, the Dominion gametype that we all know and love is going to be removed from matchmaking as a playlist. This needs to be stopped and overturned. Help the Dominion population keep its playlist. We have a major Forge Contest based on this gametype for goodness' sake! Report to this thread by RegrettedKarma to help keep Dominion alive.

PLAY DATES Ok so my work schedule won't let me host this weekend so watch out for NEXT SATURDAY! AGAIN! We still want your Play Date ideas. Post them here. YOUTUBE Brett is back this week with another really cool video. He shows you how to find hidden weapon skins on the DMR, BR, Carbine, and Suppressor in Halo 4 with the Champions Bundle. Just copy his loadouts like he explains in the video and BAM! Leave him a like and a comment in his thread here. Another Wrapup down. Now scroll up and read it all over again.

PLAY DATES Staff vs Members Play Date We had an excellent time at the Staff vs. Members Play Date today. It started off with me, JL, and RedStarRocket flipping an Elephant on Sandtrap. Then me and RedStar faced off against Frankenzer and JL and then it turned into me and RedStar against 5 members. Then Doc joined and helped us out and we had a couple of 3v7s going. The most memorable game I think though had to be CTF Valhalla because me and Doc were owning in the Warthog. And that game skummgummigubbe got betrayed by the Staff three times.. Twice by RedStarRocket and once by me and Doc splattering him in the Warthog. I swear I was going to pass right in front of him though. The lag was off the charts. Anyway thanks to everyone who joined, this was a good time. I hope it gets started up again later today. Sadly I can't host.

Please check out this poll created by WARHOLIC of The Halo Council on what you would like to see in Halo 5's Forge. "Halo 5 is currently in production, what better way to let 343 know what we want other than to TELL them?" - WARHOLIC. Poll Here. Featured Map Wanna learn how to make these bad boys? Now this isn't really a map that's featured, this is a tutorial by Pol Wah, who's in charge of our Flood Submissions Thread, and it teaches you how to make cool things like submarines and other boats of sorts. Check out his video tutorial here. GAMING NEWS E3 COVERAGE Halo 5 Ok so during E3 everyone saw this teaser for Halo 5. It was indeed confirmed by Xbox on their Twitter that this was Halo 5. Credit goes to Archangel Tyrael for showing me this photo. I give what I believe to be a full analysis of the trailer here. It gets updated when I look at others' analyses and find things. Here's another analysis of the video by a member of the community named Brett. Read his and find some things that maybe I didn't include. Click. If you want more than analysis then say no more because Victory Element, one of our previous Members of the Month, hits you with an analysis of the video AND speculation. Find it here. But if you're lazy and I hate you then watch it in video form by someone way cooler than me. Check out this video by the awesome Ducain23.

There's over an hour of video to go through and if you love what Destiny looks like already then check these videos out if you didn't see them firsthand during E3. Click here. Batman: Arkham Origins Here's a good analysis done by legends in Batman gaming news, BatmanArkhamVideos. It makes connections into the DC Universe and makes good speculation on what's possibly to come in the game. Find this video plus an E3 exclusive Gameplay Demo Walkthrough and interview with WB Montreal Creative Director Eric Holmes here.

Here's a thread from the mind of Absolute Dog that I wrote up to encourage discussion amongst the community. It addresses the rumors going around that gamers playing the same games, no matter which platform, would be able to play together. Read what I and others from the community had to say here. PLAY DATES Halo: Reach Play Date This Halo: Reach Play Date was interesting to say the least. I missed out on the beginning but when I got there everyone was in a big lobby with randoms and they were getting them to betray them so that they could boot them out of their own party. Apparently Omega inForce (Jl1223 X/JL X4) recorded the whole thing and put it on YouTube. There was this whole trolling business that JL put together and it was very anti-climactic . Afterwards we left and played some competitive customs like Headhunter, SWAT, and FFA Slayer. GSD won everything. See you all next week at our Staff vs Members Play Date! sign up here.

Second game I got dominated by Fishy and BaconShelf and eventually Boss went down too. Boss beat Bacon and Fishy in the last game!

So many people that we had 3 lobbies going, 2 of them over regulation size for Dominion. AbleSir Thomas was being flooded with messages like crazy and anyone who couldn't get into his lobby was messaging me and RedStar and it was just a crazy awesome time. Rivalries were rekindled, such as the long living rivalry between Bob and GSD dating back to when this site was a baby. Communities were brought together: there were many more people than just 343i.org members at this one. And we had some great hosts. We could not thank you enough RedStarRocket91 and AbleSir Thomas.
