Runnin' n' Gunnin'

Eat your heart out, Michael Bay.

HBO tipped us off that Team Scoog readied another action packed montage. If you're looking for pro caliber plays, this might not be for you. If you're into awesome cinematography that showcases the sweet simulation and asplosions to be found in Halo 3, you should tune in. And get on the edge of your seat.

Keep it Clean

In the bedroom.

Hawty McBloggy's mind is almost always in the bedroom, so it make sense that's she's scared up one fan's take on a SI-themed bedspread.  Pretty nice custom work at the jump below.  And of course, plenty of blue humor.

Hard Justice: S2E13

"I'll be waiting for you in hell."

Looks like 13 might not be this trio's lucky number.  The latest episode of Hard Justice follow Bernard, Eddie, and Max as they await their execution.  Obviously, you'll find some adult themes if you choose to watch.

"Mason escorts Bernard, Eddie, and Max back to the United States, to the Esoteria Police Department where they are to be executed in front of Roman at his request."

Choke Point.

Played on Rally Point (night) with a completely new set of objectives...

New Mombasa has indeed seen better days and before you have the chance to think you'll catch a break, the Covenant have come back once again to ruin everyone's day. Now focused on getting into ONI's Alpha Site, Covenant forces are dropping in fast and hitting hard.

Troopers, it's your job to rally up at Alpha Site's entrance and crush every notion of them gaining access.
Unfortunately the magic pill you'll need to swallow in order to pull this one off is a jagged one. Don't Choke!

Mythic 2 Map Pack Coming to Marketplace

Still waiting for the second half of the Mythic Map Pack?

Your wait will be over soon.  As of February 2nd, Heretic, Citadel, and Longshore will be available as a standalone map pack via Xbox LIVE Marketplace.  Read on for more details.

"Microsoft has announced that the Mythic 2 Map Pack, previously only available on the Halo 3: ODST multiplayer disc, will be released on Xbox LIVE on February 2, 2010.

The release of the Mythic 2 Map Pack brings the total number of Halo 3 multiplayer maps to 24.

  • Heretic brings players to familiar ground as the Halo 2 arena Midship returns in Halo 3. The stark interior of the Pious Inquisitor might appear austere on first glance, but Heretic's symmetrical spaces require players to execute complex strategies in order to outplay their opponents.
  • Citadel may be a long abandoned Forerunner stronghold, but its small, symmetrical confines are far from secure. Two opposing bases offer little safety for players looking for solace. Instead, Citadel forces small squads to stay in constant communication, keep their heads on a swivel, and be prepared to adjust combat tactics in close quarters.
  • Longshore lacks the commercial ships that once made it a lucrative port for Old Mombasa, but it still bustles with activity. Designed for large-scale combat and well-suited for smaller affairs, Longshore’s multitude of industrial buildings, elevated walks, and open inlets conspire to create a complex battleground tailored for multiple combat scenarios.

Mythic 2 Map Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points.

Additionally, Halo fans can contribute to Bungie’s relief efforts for Haiti by participating in the "Be a Hero" campaign on Xbox LIVE. For every 1,000 people that wear a red heart emblem and play Halo 3 or Halo 3: ODST online today or tomorrow, Bungie will donate $100 to Red Cross, up to $77,000."
