1.5 - Halo 3 Trick Jumping Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

Less than 1.6, but greater than 1.4

It's way too early for mathematics.

"This is a Halo 3 trick jumping montage from the jumping clan, 'Jump Sequence,' put together by Lord Guntaz, entitled, '1.5' It features the leftovers from their upcoming trick jumping montage, 'TWO.' I wasn't very impressed with a few of the jumps, but there are a good amount of sick ones here and there that really surprised me with the creativity behind them. The soundtrack is pretty sweet and all of the theater work is smoothly done. Enjoy!"

Git Yer Visual Flair Here!

Halo 1 PC/Mac, and Marathon 2 XBLA players rejoice!

If you missed the news in the Weekly Update, (scroll down to the section with the orange block of game UI), players of classic Bungie games get a head start on making their Reach lobby appearance shiny by unlocking some special nameplate images.

Two of these need a few extra clicks on your part to become active, so we're letting you get started now - Halo 1 for PC/Mac, and Marathon 2: Durandal for XBLA. To unlock these emblems:

1. Make sure you're signed in to Bungie.net with the account that's linked to the gamertag you want to tie your Halo PC key to. If you tie it to one account, but only played Halo 2 and 3 on a different account, we CAN NOT help you combine them later to get the emblem for playing all 3. Choose wisely! Obviously, this also has to be the gamertag you'll play Reach with.

2. Visit your Bungie.net account page , then click the Game Settings tab, then the Nameplate Settings link below that.

3. Follow the instruction there to unlock your stuff!

4. Wait an agonizingly long 20 days until 9/14 when you get Reach and play it online

5. Return to the same Nameplate Settings page , where you'll be shown all the nameplates available to you, and you can choose one to use. Return there whenever you feel like changing things up.

6. Questions? Problems? Post here

Forget all about the storm outside.

This Halo 3 music video is packed full of special effects and subtle metaphor. You like metaphor, dontcha?

"A short music video made by Cory Carter of NewScape Productions, dedicated to Jamie98s. The main character is caught in a war between heaven and hell (metaphorical) for his love with a women. He constantly pushes forward, fails once, but goes back and tries again (thus comes the rewind.) until he finally gets the women. Enjoy! and Rate, Comment, Subscribe!"

Rising Stars - Limit

Mini Waz writes:

Finding future prospects.

Mini Waz continues his crusade to find kick ass community content.

"On a constant mission to find the hidden gems within the Forge community, I came across 'Limit'. Created by Ififrito92, 'Limit' revisits the map which kick-started the map making craze in Halo 3. As the ongoing challenge of trying to make the big time continues, Ififirito92 has stepped up his game and crafted a great map which utilizes Foundry's floor space effectively to incorporate multiple gameplay style from open lines of fire to close up corridor action.

The map works wonders for customs containing small parties. As well as being a great send off for Foundry, the map also marks the beginning of a what's going to be a great Forging career in Halo: Reach. This is one map maker to look out for in the future!

Fire up some customs and check out 'Limit' by hitting the download link below."

This time's for real.

Yeah, I was gonna say. The gameplay below is a bit weak. I mean this guy is no that guy who was playing the Quick Look Cage Match video from last week. That guy was like probably like one of the best players ever.

"This is a Halo 3 MLG Heretic FFA montage from Kampy, put together by himself. The gameplay is a bit weak in the beginning and the gameplay does get a bit repetitive, but it is still pretty good overall, showcasing a lot of sick sticks and multikills. The editing's pretty simple, consisting mainly of basic syncing, allowing you to focus on the gameplay like in every Kampy montage. Enjoy!"
