Bungie Pentathlon - who actually cares ?

Fantastic amount of info on this thread.

The graphical leap from the very first series of shots to the Halo CE we know and love today is massive (same really with the leap from Halo CE to to Halo 3). It just shows you how many designs / redesigns the Bungie Staff went through until they were fully satisified with the game.

Excellent stuff

Can anyone convert the video files? I can't run them for some reason.

Have you tried saving them to your hard drive and opening them in QuickTime? I know if you try to stream them the servers get all cranky.

My spoon isn't the only thing that's too big

This is incredible! All this stuff is so nostalgic...

It's not a streaming issue. Windows Media Player can't find the Codec or something like that.

ANY SPAM WILL RESULT IN A PERMANENT BLOCK.

I wish that Bungie would release an Alpha Build. Pretty Please?

Basically, I make the best topics ever.

Feedback!
Duardo: This thread is locked for being stupid.
cortana 5 : It's perpetually my time of the month and I'm just grouchy.
Foman: I see absolutely no reason, either theoretical or practical, that this is not a superb idea. Excellent work, my friend.

This is amazing. Great information.

oh yeah! I like this Thread! *thumb up*

I would really appreciate to play a Older Build of the Game on my XBOX 8)

Anyone knows something about the map Ruined Pain? i found a .DDS Bitmap in the ui.map and found all Mapnames in these Bitmaps... is Ruined Pain a Map that didnt made it to the Game?? and why is there another Bitmap called bonus level?

That thing is tight.

Almost as cool as the Legionarre Elites with Energy Guantlets and Swords.
