Tag and Release - Grunt

I see bad guy!

This week's Tag and Release focuses its lens on the Halo Trilogy's quirky but lovable scamp, the Grunt.  Officially, they're Unggoy, the Covenant's methane-sucking cannon fodder, but the onomatopoeic "grunt" suits these huffing, puffing, plasma pistol toting hunchbacks just fine.  When you're feeling down, there's no better remedy than making Grunts fly.  Check out some screenshots below to see the Unggoy in action.

Were it so Easy


Fly Me to the Moon

A little less serious this week, but that's okay.  If these aren't the screenshots you're looking for, there are plenty more to be had via the All Tags tool.  Can you see the slow wave of our hand?  Good.  We were hoping our mind control was taking hold.  Now, how's about you head off and make us a sandwich?  Double time.

Legends of BloodGulch

From Grifball to infinity and beyond.

Clocking in at over eight and a half minutes in length, this montage of team Halo 3 play is a bit on the lengthy side.  But if you decide to invest some of your time, there's bound to be something in the mix you'll find interesting.  Vehicle carnage, Grifball, Matchmaking, and Custom Games, this video does it all.

"The Legends of BloodGulch team started out as just a few friends and a Grifball team and became a sort of loosely knit clan with the intent to help out fellow players. Currently we do not have much of a website but we are looking for people to help out with it. Were a group of friends who are just out to play Halo and have fun doing it! Were always open to new members and new challenges!"

"On this episode, we bring on CO0L Beans and other well-known community members from the Halo 3 Mythbusters community. A boy from Canada and his penguin, a constant muttering of "those darn zombies," a sneak peek at Halo 3 Mythbusters: Episode 9 (sort of), and much more is to be heard on this podcast. But, we don't want to give away everything.

After five weeks of production, four hours in a Skype call, three seperate attempts at recording, and two cups of coffee... Comes almost one hour of podcasting goodness. Enjoy.

The .mp3 version of this file can be found here and hopefully an iTunes account will be instated in the future for new episodes."

Stop Motion, that is.

This is a quirky little video project that uses a "Stop Motion" effect to showcase the action. At just over two minutes, it's short and sweet, but there's some potential in this effect we haven't seen anyone really explore to the fullest. Check it out below.

Teammates For Life

old school dude writes:

A match made in Halo.

We blogged about the couple whose bonds were forged in Halo matchmaking before, but it looks like MTV took the story one step further and sent an embedded journalist to the ceremony to capture it all in a real life Saved Film.  This pair really loves their Halo (and yeah, each other).

"A couple that met playing the video game decided to tie the knot in a Halo-themed ceremony. The gamers included everything from the Halo theme music to a an avatar-embroidered dress."

Prepare to Crouch.

There's an interesting psychological case study to be made from the following video.  Monkey see, monkey do and all that.  Be a good monkey, do what I did, and click on the video below for a few early morning laughs.

"A random game of Grifball on just another Double EXP weekend came to an abrupt conclusion when the score reached critical mass and our victory was certain.  I suggested we be stupid.

We began going as fast as we could to the bomb, crouched, only to see the other team, people we didn't know joining in. What ensued was a blast."
