  1. It seems 343 is moving on again. Small groups of people at 343 have already started the creative process, and even a few lines. "We do kind of know what’s going to happen in the next game pretty well at this point," explains franchise development director Frank O’Connor. "We’re doing serious real planning and even some writing on the next game already, and that’s a luxury – we’ve never been in that position before. So we both know at a very high level what’s going to happen in, say, ten years from now. But at that very granular level knowing what’s going to happen in the next game and that’s just been a great feeling for me." As it appears, Bonnie is mobilizing Frank O'Connor and a few teams to "really lay the fictional foundation for the next 20 years." Bonnie also points out that several ideas playing a part in Halo 6 are already layed out. Stating they had to know where they were going by the end of Halo 4. Frank O'Connor has displayed caution, however in this, saying that starting too soon and too fast could change Halo's world and change plans. Frankie says: " ... [if] you start making those stepping stones too rigid, then you’re not being realistic about the game development process. That process could change the story but we know what’s going to happen in the next game, and we kind of know what’s going to happen to the Master Chief ultimately. " Halo 5 is finished. Halo 6 is (probably has been) in development! source: http://343i.org/36m
  2. Hey everyone. I know that some of you must know me, the older members at least. I really wouldn't expect a newer member to remember me, given I'm barely here anymore oppose to how much I used to be here in the past. And lately, I've been making more frequent visits, lurking among the shadows of the forum just to see that all of you are safe and okay. Because despite how distant I have gotten I still care about every single one of you, dearly. You guys were all my friends, and I still see you as friends, even if we don't talk often. With this member ranking structure update, I've come back with the goal to get to Legendary status, yes. Who wouldn't have that goal? But I just want all of you to know that me coming back isn't just because of a fancy color and title. It's because I miss this place, I truly do. I miss the countless hours of fun in the shoutbox. The events. The members. The moderators. ...Art week.. The one thing I did for this forum that no other succeeded at. Everything in this place that you can even imagine, because the possibilities are endless with the creativity and devotion of all of you. But at the same time, I find it hard to come back, because as I grow older I'm starting to do different things. I'm starting to get more and more friends outside of my digital life. I have parents that are slowly starting to rely on me, because sooner or later I'll be the one taking the torch. And most of all, I've just gotten so many priorities to the point where I don't know where to start. I would sit here and make another promise to come back, and stay back. But at the same moment, I can't. Because I don't know where my life is going to take me. I just go day by day, and whatever happens is going to happen. I have a goal to try and come back, because I feel that I need to do it for all of you. You all showed me how fun it is to be within a community. And with the time I was here, I was at my peak of happiness. And ever since I left, I feel like that happiness just left. And on top of that, you all are amazing people that I miss being around. Because this place is diverse, and flowing with as much cheeriness and prosperity as possible. And it's amazing how no matter what happens here, that mood maintains. I don't know if this is a thank-you, a speech, or even a declaration of home-coming. But I know one thing, and that is for sure. I should be here, and I should be doing as much as I can to pay back all the respect, and kindness I've received over these two years. But rather, I'm sitting and thinking of what to do, rather than just doing what I should've been doing this entire time - ..Just being here. I owe it to all of you, to be here. Because you all cleared up my dark and stormy nights. No matter how little interaction you had. I will come back, because I know I have to. And I know I've said this before, but at the time I was too incompetent and immature to understand. But now I do, and I will apply as much effort as possible to be able to be here. Not only for myself, but for all of you. Thanks for the wild ride these past two years. And let's look forward to the roller coasters ahead. - The Friendly A.I Here's some complementary art, for all of you.
  3. Welcome one and all, to the next Official Art Week thread!! And from last time as you all know, we had a little theme going on with our photos. And this time, we are going to follow that same tradition. However, this time was about a new type of theme, and what we plan on doing with it. Our theme for this Art Week, is to make photos that revolve mainly around Rooster Teeth. What we plan on doing is, getting a collection of Rooster Teeth related drawings all together, and sending them all to Rooster Teeth, as a tribute to their hard efforts, and to try and help raise their spirits. So, RvB, RWBY, Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures, or even just a tribute to the RT Life. Either way, let's bring a smile to their faces this time around. Rules: I'm allowing 5-6 photos per artist. Do NOT copy or post other artists work without permission from them, alongside I. Please try to keep the photo on topic. You can make photos that do not relate, however and state that was the intention. Be considerate of other members work, do not be rude, or harass another over their art. And remember, make sure it's appropriate and not like, all over the place. Last but not least, have a fun time thinking up your ideas, you've got plenty of time until then, so... Get doing whatever you do. I will, once again, like to thank Drizzy_Dan and RedStarRocket91 for helping me with this project, and as always, have a nice day. -TDM THREAD WILL BE LOCKED UNTIL STARTING DAY.
  4. I realized in the time I've been here I never even posted an introduction on the forums, so here it is. Hi, I'm rrhuntington. I joined this forum two years ago, after watching this place for a good time. Before I came here, I had not known a place like this even existed. A Halo forum where fans of the series and some former fans could find themselves and talk about Halo and games in general. I joined 343ICF because I love Halo, and that statement holds true to today. It really is a magical game to me, and it was a staple of my childhood. So to join a place that prides itself in the enjoyment, news, and following of the franchise was an easy deal. During my first few weeks I had signed up on here, I had no intention of staying as long as I have, and I really didn't. I stayed until December of 2012 and then left for over a year. I joined in what I like to call "The post Halo 4 period." Where the community of Halo still seemed shell-shocked on what kind of gamed Halo 4 truly was. At that time, I couldn't see the good this site had to offer. Realizing now how I felt back then, I must have been blind. When I came back late in 2013, I don't remember what told me to come back. Maybe it was a rekindling of interest in Halo, maybe it was just curiosity. Whatever it was, I'm glad it happened. I started becoming more active, engaging in more conversations, and writing posts on thought provoking topics. It's like something just clicked in my brain. I saw through whatever cloud blinded me the previous year. I joined play dates in Halo and other games abroad, and I mingled with people. I started to make friends on the site over the past year. They have made me laugh, and made me think and have given different viewpoints on many different topics. I rose from GREENIE to Trusted to Dedicated very quickly. There was so much to talk about in threads and in the Shoutbox, that it made ranking up easy, but it was never about that. After a while, I just wanted to be around you guys, everyone on this site. This place has become a (sort of) home for me. It wasn't just about Halo anymore, it was this site, and the people who dwelled here. I'm sorry I couldn't see that before. I come here everyday... because of all of you. Everyone that's ever been here has made it a blast. All the GREENIES, All the Trusted, All the Dedicated, Art Department, News Team, The Moderators, Admins, TWAM... Even the Banished ones who are no longer with us. I want to thank all of you. You are my reason to keep striving here. We'll go through tough times, and we'll go through some of Great moments together, and I'll be honored to be a part of it all. As we step upon the door to a the dawn of a new era in Halo, and this site alike, I'll keep walking with you through the door and beyond. You've all made it a journey I'll never forget, and I don't think I ever want to get off this ride. Let's make some more memories eh? Look Buddy... See ya around.

  10. Hello American football fans it's almost time for the season to officially start. That being said: Mayh3m, BZ, and I are looking for some football heads to get into our Fantasy Football league with us on Yahoo. It'll be a Standard draft, standard point league. Right now we have 3 people like I said. One good thing about Fantasy Football is that you don't even need to be hardcore football fan to get involved. I got into the NFL THROUGH Fantasy Football actually. It makes you want to watch games to see your players do well and keep stats. If you're interested follow these steps: 1. Create a Yahoo account. 2. PM me when you've done so. 3. Get ready for game day! We need an even amount of people with 4 minimum but we're opening this up to all the members just in case there were some football fans or anyone who were interested that we might've been over looking. CUTOFF IS THIS FRIDAY 2PM EST. DRAFT TIME IS 3PM EST. See you on the virtual football field.
  11. Hey everyone, I know it has been a while! And I am quite sorry for that. But, I have some good news! Art Week will be officially starting again in the beginning of August. The date is NOT specified, but just know that it will most definitely be in the beginning of August. Which is why I have been thinking about it a lot, and so I have some results. So, here is the concept this time. For us in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, it is Winter. So depending on where you are on a Hemispherical way of looking at it, that should base your pictures theme. Although, if you'd like to do vice-versa or just make your own idea in general, go ahead! You are free to your choices here, right? Also, if you've noticed my new status.... You're probably wondering what the whole "I love bees" gimmick with me is, right? I know you are. So now to unveil why I've been away for so long!! I've been waiting for a long time now. Here is a few hints: So, any idea yet..? Well, you most likely guessed right! What you are seeing right now is my new gametype... Halo 2 Anniversary slayer! This is in version 0.04 as there hasn't been a lot of issues, but I'll be waiting for Comic-Con and GamesCom before I add any more features into it. So go here to take a copy and try it out for yourself with some friends! I'm sure you'll fall in love with it. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/players/sii%20logan%20133/halo4/fileshare#!/?section=GameSettings&SearchDate=7&SortBy=2&view-select=Tile&startIndex=0 And yes, I was gone a few months because of this because I wanted to nail the weapon specs. But just note that it all can't be the same due to ammo and tuning and so on. But I got it as close as I could for now. This has been The Dumb Marine, and have a good day!

He's giving players the option to choose whether there should be two players playing for the feed and what faction they'd like to see him play as.

  21. April Fools is one of those holidays where most online communities can't help themselves but come up with something to tease and joke around with the members of their sites. The gaming community being among the biggest on the internet to do so. From fake news to forum pranks, the gaming community always gets its audience. Here are some examples of how the Halo Community got the April Fools mischief out of their systems last week. Our Affiliate Site, HaloCustoms got a few members good with their simple and eye-stinging April Fools Day prank. At first when you logged onto the site you would see bright colors that actually hurt my eyes to look at it in the morning. You could choose color schemes at the bottom which some found to be a cool feature but the original was a real eye sore like I said. Here's what I saw when I logged in: I'm pretty sure I died for a minute. Then I remembered HaloCustoms allowed for the switching of themes at the bottom of the page so I scrolled down and after two attempts I got back to the regular HC skin. As you can see there were two choices. I clicked the "HaloCustoms" style thinking it'd give me the original and it stayed as the horrible colors you saw above. So like an idiot, I went back and clicked it again thinking I must've messed something up only to realize that part of the prank was exactly that. What you had to do what choose the "April 1" style. Not my proudest moment . THFE does a video each year for April Fools to please their fans. Last year they did a hilarious video about changing their name from The Halo Forge Epidemic to The Used Silverware Epidemic and announced that they'd be selling used silverware because video games are bad . You can watch last year's video right here, it's a guarantee must-watch: This year The Halo Forks Epidemic did not fail to entertain their subscribers and fans again with their new update video. This year THFE showed us a new take on competitive gaming in Halo: Professional Flood. Major League Flood was started by Psychoduck's good friend who's a real pro at the Flood gametype XXProSnipesMLG420XX. Find out how you can become a MLF by watching the video below: And as for us here at 343i.org we didn't really do much. We had a major malfunction after Red was doing some site updates and something very private was exposed for all to see on the site. Unfortunately our Staff forums became visible to all members and they even took the liberty to post in them as you can see above. The first to notice was @HollowPseudonym who is now on permanent watch under the Moderators' eyes. Though I must say this wasn't the worst thing that could've happened to us especially on that day of all days. Our real April Fools Prank was staging a fake fight between D-38 Boss and Edward Kenway and then saying they were both shoutbanned (when in actuality it was really only Edward Kenway who was shoutbanned LOL). At least we got a laugh out of this mishap because people got to see what really goes on behind the scenes here. Here's an example of what I mean, given to you by our beloved Site Moderator, RedStarRocket: You see, it's not all fun and games here. Sometimes we talk about the serious stuff too. Twam was actually so annoyed that he just took off that day and was considering not coming back. He made Red the Admin and the rest of us Moderators and just straight up retired. Fishy Sparky Yes it was a historical event on the site. I'm just glad everything is back to normal. It seems everybody did an April Fools Day prank except for us? We'll just have to get you next time members .

Meet Your Maker Community Event Weekend The Meet Your Maker Infinity Slayer Forge Contest was quite possibly the largest Forge Contest in the Halo Community. Brought to you by 343industries.org and The Halo Forge Epidemic, it drew in over 100 submissions judged by a group of members from the community including THE Absolute Dog, THE Spades N AZ, THE WARHOLIC, and THE Psychoduck. I'm talking big names. And even bigger names when it came to participants. Winners included Squally DaBeanz, The Fated Fire, Redemption1272, PA1NTS, and Xinshu. It wasn't quite as big the second time around but it was still up there since participants were allowed two submissions each. If you don't know these names above then wait until you see their work.

  24. Hello everyone! I am the The Dumb Marine! Your purple friendly weasel loving... Uhh... Friend. And... WELCOME TO THE VERY FIRST EVER ART WEEK!! Alright, So this is the introduction to a new tradition I plan on making for the site! Which is known as Art Week. Art Week will be held once a month, And will give artists, machinimators, music makers, and even people who have amazing stuff to show that wouldn't be seen normal anywhere else! My goal from this is to give all members a chance to get their favorite piece of art (That they made of course), shown to the public, And get the attention it deserves. There are only a few set of rules. Rules: 1. Do not post a whole lot of art, Art count per artist will be listed later 2. If you dislike something, Don't be rude about it, But just state what you think could've been done here or there. (In a nice manner!) 3. Don't post something with swears from top to bottom, or something graphically profane. In other words, KEEP IT CLEAN! 4. Do NOT copy other users content, Or upload content made by a user without their permission. (Especially if you plan on borrowing from DeviantArtist's that you really like) 5. No matter what, Be respectful in everyway possible! As stated in #2. 6. If you plan on making a small video, Please try keeping it at least five minutes or under, As site bandwidth can really lag up. ART LIMIT: EVERY ARTIST CAN SUBMIT 3 WORKS OF ART, GOOD OR BAD, OLD OR NEW, FUNNY OR SAD, JUST KEEP IT CLEAN!! I really hope this works out well!! And thanks to Drizzy_Dan and all the mods for being able to help out with this, And always give our mods extreme credit. This post will be locked until April 21st. Until then, Hasta la vista, Baby. Thanks for reading! - TDM
