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.

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. Destiny Adamj004 of our site's News Group hit us with a crap ton on Destiny at E3 including gameplay, interviews, and video blogs by the great Deej. 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. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag looks quite incredible to me. I hope it's not just me. Click this link and watch all the videos I provide and tell me if it looks awesome to you too. Click here. HOT TOPIC 'Will PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 Allow for Cross-Platform Gaming?' 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. Participants: GermanShepherdD, -Sparky-, D-38 Boss, Omega inForce, JXZAW, DN2012, Frankenzer Attend Play Dates, rack up Awards: USF ELECTION The United States of the Forum Presidential Election is always a fun time on the site. The mud slinging and bribery starts and with that comes good campaigning. This year's winner was...... ME! (Drizzy_Dan) I am the new Forum President so you know what that means? Nothing! It's just a fun time in my opinion and thank you to Spyro for always coming back and running it every 4 months! Now everyone must address me as Sir. YOUTUBE OH MY GOD. That is what I said when I saw this Community Spotlight by Oakley HiDef of The Halo Forge Epidemic. Guys this is going to blow your minds. Oakley spotlights a video maker by the name of Gugga Leunnam. What Gugga does is take CGI clips from Halo Games and puts movie trailer audio over them and does it AMAZINGLY. If you don't like this video then I hate you. This has been a public service announcement by your Forum President, now scroll back up and read it all over again.

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. And all in all everyone had fun. Thank you to everyone who joined in on the fun. The maps were great too. You can find the list of the maps in the Dominion: The Day Away After Action Report by RedStarRocket here.

I don't know how they did it but they did.

  19. Hello everyone I hope you enjoy this week's Wrapup, it's another pretty full week. Primary Announcement: The site has hit the quarter of a million post mark! Thank you SikSlik for the news! CONTESTS Minecraft Tournament Here's a Minecraft tournament. I have no details on this subject whatsoever but the winner gets 1600 points! Find the contest here. DGL The DGL finals start A WEEK FROM YESTERDAY. That's Friday May 17th. Your new division: Castle Division: Drizzy_Dan, Gazzy Mill Mill, Neurotic Kasper, Sarge, SikSlik7, Forum Dinosaur, Hater, Real Talk If you still want info on the DGL for some reason click the links below: Rules/Info Match_Results Gametype/Scoring EVENTS The 343Industries Community Forum Forge Project Guys this is a really cool idea started by SikSlik7. The Community Forge Project is about members on this site getting together and building some awesome maps. New or old, experienced or non experienced, he's inviting anyone and everyone to come together and Forge a map that we can play on and call our own. It's a brilliant idea. This is a beautiful idea and I want in. Great job SikSlik. Find the CFP here.

This is a good read. FORGE Get A Clue Forge Contest The Get A Clue Forge Contest submission deadline is long overdue. Master Debaytes is hosting test lobbies for the maps and you can find them over on our affiliate site, HaloCustoms. Featured Map Such an aesthetically pleasing map. Wolf Dargo's creation Tallac is a large scale map that plays best with Slayer gametypes like Infinity and Team Regicide. If this screenshot doesn't get you then check out the submission thread for more info. Find the map download thread here. GAMING NEWS Adamj of the News Group posted this the other day. Could the next Xbox be called Xbox Infinity? Check out his new topic here. HOT TOPIC This week's Hot Topic is hysterical. It is a joke thread but it's really funny to see the ideas this guy comes up with. BurningHero74's 'Halo 4 really needs to stop copying...' thread is about how Halo 4 copies another game. Now the usual argument is about Halo being like CoD now and all that but he takes an interesting approach to this one and goes as far as saying that it copies Super Mario! It was so funny I used the thread rating feature that nobody uses. Check it out and make a comment on it here. PLAY DATES Halo: Reach Play Date Probably the best turnout the Reach Play Date has seen in a couple of months. We actually had a lobby of 16 people at one point, but not everyone was from the site. We played one of Invasion, Slayer, and other fun gametypes. We had a good time overall and hopefully everyone will return next week for Halo 3.

  20. Hey guys, lots of fun topics in the Wrapup this week so thanks for viewing it. Primary Announcement: My iPod that was getting repaired has come in today. CONTESTS Minecraft Tournament I don't know what this is exactly but it was in our Contests and Events Forum so it must be official because only Mods and Promotions/Events Staff can post there. So from the look of it, it seems to be a tournament for Minecraft and the winner gets 1600 points! There's a poll involved on whether you would be interested or not and this thread has gotten no replies and I think I might've been the only person to view it. Find the contest here. DGL The DGL will be making its final step forward again. The REAL finals start May 17th. Ladies and gentlemen I give you: Castle Division: Drizzy_Dan, Gazzy Mill Mill, Neurotic Kasper, Sarge, SikSlik7, Forum Dinosaur, Hater, Real Talk If you still want info on the DGL for some reason click the links below: Rules/Info Match_Results Gametype/Scoring EVENTS Tuesday Night Tests Do you want gameplay tested opinions on your Forged maps?

AbleSir Thomas gives you the skinny on Dominion Forge. FORGE Get A Clue Forge Contest The Get A Clue Forge Contest is OVER. Well submissions are at least. Master Debaytes is hosting test lobbies for the maps and you can find them over on HaloCustoms. Featured Map Here is just a small area inside Raphael Megusta Stu's competitive map, Hyperion. From what I've seen in the gameplay video: you can find action around every corner, the man cannons prove to be very useful, and there are some interesting vantage points on the map. There's also good cover and the sight lines are not too long. Find the gameplay video and more awesome screens of @Raphael Megusta Stu's map here. HOT TOPIC This week's Hot Topic was HOT. You can't post in it because it was locked but it's worth a read in my opinion. Here's an example of how not to act when receiving feedback from THFE when you clearly submit a map to them to get their feedback. Some contraversy over a map, that was fun to watch. Thankfully it didn't get too crazy before AD locked it up. Find the fun here. MEMBER OF THE MONTH May 2nd, The Halo Forge Epidemic's AbleSir Thomas became our newest Member of the Month! It does this community well to see one of our partners get the honor of wearing the pink name that is MoM. Here's the announcement thread where you can congratulate him: Announcement. Our great former MoM, Victory Element, will now be awarded with the MoM Award: PLAY DATES Halo Wars Play Date The Halo Wars Play Date was a huge success if I do say so myself. We had a full lobby right from the start and two lobbies going. First we started with me, skumm, and Boss against Sweaty, Elite, and the Heroic AI. We destroyed them. Then AbleSir Thomas joined the fun and it was the same teams except we decided to go all random leaders and Boss got stuck as Covenant and was MISERABLE. It was great. And I got wrecked by AbleSir, Sweaty, and Elite's air units combined. All in all, great time. Participants: ThomasScott02, D-38 Boss, Elite, skummgummigubbe, SweatyBagels, AbleSir Thomas, Frankenzer, BaconShelf Impromptu Switch to Halo 4 Next we switched to Halo 4 where we gained more players and had a lot of fun.

Participants: D-38 Boss, Elite, skummgummigubbe, SweatyBagels, HaloGeek, Jl1223 X, SikSlik7, Frankenzer, BaconShelf, Real Talk Then the party proceeded back to Halo Wars after I left and now they are currently playing Halo 3. What a day for the site's community. . Meet Your Maker Play Date My feeling that the Meet Your Maker Play Date could be happening soon has died. That doesn't mean it's not happening however.

The next title will be Batman: Arkham Origins and I will provide details that can be seen in this video soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pN0eDYQAL8 PLAY DATES Halo: Reach Play Date This was possibly the worst Play Date we've ever had.

Adamj004 of the News Group was on top of his game as usual and brought us pictures of the three playable races in Destiny presented at the Bungie GDC Panel. Find them here. Adam has also brought us some one of a kind pictures taken from the Character Development video that he has screenshotted himself. Not all of the pictures were taken by Adam but just about every one of them are. Find them all here. Adam was not the only one to bring news however, not by a long shot. Azaxx also brought us some new concept art images presented at the panel from GDC. Find Azaxx's thread here. To add to all of this, highplainsdrifter, another Destiny enthusiast, brought us news of Destiny's rating and trademarks taken out by Bungie along with a very curious theory on what the unnamed race in Destiny can be (presumably far right). Find his thread here. Lastly, if you want to see the actual Character Development video itself then check it out here. Brought to us by Choot 'em! The latest Bungie Mailsack from April 5th has dropped, find it here. GameSpot did a great interview with Bungie's Christopher Barrett and Joseph Staten. Choot gives you it here.
