'Legacy' - A Halo 3 Community Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

Do you live? Do you die?

Skank emailed me this morning to tell me that I had to put this montage up in the news feed. You can't tell me what to do, Skank!

"This is a Halo 3 community montage put together by Zola entitled, 'Legacy,' and it is one of the best Halo videos I have ever seen. The editing is just incredible, featuring countless original and complex effects that must have taken forever to create. The intro is just beautiful, the syncing is on point, and the transitions are amazing. The gameplay is also ridiculous and is just full of ridiculous exterminations, snipes, and multikills, some of which are on known names. Lastly, the video's in high definition so no complaints in this department. Overall, this is one of the greatest Halo videos of all time and I hope you like it. Enjoy!"

Bungie.net Experiencing Turbulence

Fasten your seat belts and return your tray tables to the upright position.

Nothing major, folks. Just a little bit of chop. As needed, we'll be bringing some secondary features offline to compensate for launch day load. So, if you see your Service Record player model disappear, don't freak out. We'll bring it back online as we normalize.

Where's Mah Campaign Matchmaking!?

Keeping you spoiler free since 2010.

If you're looking for campaign matchmaking in Halo: Reach, sit tight. In an effort to keep your first campaign experience spoiler free, we've decided to wait for a bit before we deploy the campaign playlist. We can't have you beginning from the end, now can we?

For now, you'll have to link up with people on your friends list if you want to play cooperatively. As soon as the Campaign playlist goes live, we'll make some noise about it.
