The URKtage

Wait, what?

I had no idea what this had to do with me until I read the description.  No sick snipers or beast no-scopes.  Yep, sounds like yours truly.  I do all my best work with the Spiker Rifles.  The video below doesn't featuring any play from yours truly, but there are some gems to dig out.  If you're into watching other people play Halo 3 in your spare time, tune in.

"This montage does not include any 'sick snipes' or 'beast no-scopes', but just some funny and fresh clips not to be taken seriously. It short and amusing, so just hit play and enjoy. Oh, and it's also a little tribute to our community hero, the very founder of news posting, Urk."

'Brothers Final' - Halo 3 Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

Under the Milky Way tonight.

What's Monday morning without a montage?

"This is a Halo 3 montage from Vidol and Shausty entitled, 'Brothers Final.' The gameplay features a mix of MLG and non MLG gameplay and lots of sick snipes (look out for the last clip). The syncing is pretty well done, and the editing is overall surprisingly minimal and laid back. The soundtrack is also an interesting change of pace, and the video's in crystal clear HD. Enjoy!"

'Bending The Xbox As Far As It'll Bend'

Getting a little bit Edgy.

Ever tried to bend your Xbox 360? It's not easy. Things are made out of hardened metal and plastic. But bend we will.

Edge continues their online tease treatment with a few more questions answered by Bungie's own Marcus Lehto and Brian Jarrard.  And yeah, for the record, we're nuts for Nathan Drake. He's dreamy! (And we totally read his journal.)
