Default's 1st Halo 3 Montage

Hello hurricane, you're not enough.

Montage Monday!

"This is Default's 1st Halo 3 montage, edited by Sunshiine. The gameplay is absolutely sick, showcasing a lot of really sick snipes and multikills, most of which is from lvl 50 MLG. The editing is pretty simple but it complements the stellar gameplay and laid back song choice very well, matching the song's feel and letting the gameplay speak for itself. Make sure to watch out for the disgusting Pit killtrocity and Guardian killtacular. Enjoy!"

Better late than never.

"This is a Halo Reach Beta dualtage from Dutchy and ManWithoutModem, edited by passTHEword (who has just come out of retirement), entitled, 'Virtue and Vice.' The syncing is on point, the cinematography is beautifully done, and the video is just packed full of originality to achieve an incredible flow. I also really loved the soundtrack. Enjoy!"

'Bittersweet' - A Halo 3 Montage

You'll hit your target someday.

Yeah, bittersweet kinda like having to look at delicious cupcakes that are online only. Anyway, check out this montage.

"This is a Halo 3 montage from True Shot, edited by himself, entitled, 'Bittersweet.' The gameplay is almost entirely social with 1 lone MLG clip and showcases a lot of sweet sticks, snipes, and multikills. The song choice is pretty relaxed and the editing reflects that by being small in amount and basic, allowing the gameplay to speak for itself. Enjoy!"

The Lost 20 Q's Interview - August 2010

There's a surprise at the bottom!

Oh, I like surprises!

"I stay up late because I enjoy posting these interviews for you all and I hope you enjoy reading them. I ended up interviewing Ryan Moyer who runs back in March then it got pushed back to April and somehow it must have got lost in the mail until now. Hence the name "The Lost Interview." I know right talk about an outdated interview. Actually it's not that outdated it still has some nuggets of fun in it.

Aside from this interview getting lost in the mail. Like a box of Cracker Jack this interview also has a surprise at the bottom. I hope you all enjoy the surprise and the interview."

'Chemical' - Halo 3 Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

You are so beautiful.

Now this is Wu's kinda montage!

"This is a Halo 3 montage from Stobs, edited by himself. The intro's pretty cool and the montage contains a lot of nice gameplay, showcasing a lot of nice sniper multikills and overkill exterminations. There's even a killtacular somewhere in the mix. The editing's kind of hit and miss with a couple misplaced effects, but is still solid overall, featuring some decent angles and syncing. You also need to give him props for editing his own video, a pretty rare occurrence nowadays. Enjoy!"

Like a fresh scoop of ice cream!

He said "whilst." lol

"It’s tough, very tough to find true talent within the millions of people that play Halo 3. The other day, YouTube decided to recommend a Forge map video to me. With hardly any views, I decided to take a ganders at it to see what people are creating in Halo 3’s Forge mode whilst not expecting much.

During my time playing Halo I was fortunate enough to be able to get maps recognised relatively easily. So what about your standard Halo player, Mr. Loyal who doesn’t seem to get recognised?

Now I don’t know these two people nor have I ever played Halo with them, all I know is that they will be injecting many awesome custom maps into the Halo community when Halo: Reach hits stores. Why not check out their latest Halo 3 creation below for some solid gameplay that works wonders for custom game nights." - Aptitude Map Variant

Thank you and enjoy!"
