Tyrant's Halo 3: ODST Legendary Walkthrough - Kizingo Boulevard

Tyrant122312 writes:

The boulevard of broken dreams has a ZING to it!

As grim as things may look for New Mombasa, you won't be walking this broken boulevard alone.  Several squads of Marines will be backing you up and lending you a helping hand with heavy UNSC armor.  Use it bulldoze your way through the Covenant occupied streets and link up with Dutch down the road.

To help get you there, the Tyrant will be aiding you in battle with words of wisdom to go hand in hand with the video walkthrough.  Not only will he be guiding you through the flashback, but just like with the prior missions, he'll also be taking you through the rather lengthy Mombasa Streets segment leading up to the events of Kizingo.

So armor up for Tyrant's latest installment of the Halo 3: ODST Legendary Guide!

I'm Still Just Mad 2 - A Halo: Reach/Halo 3 Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

I wouldn't mind it if you were by my side.

This is a Halo 3/Halo: Reach mixtage from Just Mad, put together by himself, entitled, "I'm Still Just Mad 2". It features his leftover clips and is the sequel to the Halo: Reach Beta/Halo 3 mixtage he released a couple months ago, "I'm Still Just Mad." The gameplay's quite good for leftovers, featuring a nice collection of sweet clips from both Halo 3 and Reach. I'm a big fan of Keane so I loved the soundtrack, and the simple editing went along with it really, really well. Enjoy!

4/14 - A Halo 3/Halo: Reach Montage

Gear61 Owns writes:

I will break.

This is a Halo 3/Halo: Reach mixtage from Sandman, edited by SillyGoose entitled, "4/14", made to celebrate their birthdays. The gameplay consists of leftovers, but it's Sandman so they're still ridiculous. The editing is pretty good well, despite Sandman doing it at the last minute. The Sandman/SillyGoose duo has never disappointed me yet, and this montage certainly wasn't an exception. Enjoy!

20 Questions for April 2011

Want to know more?

Just in case you weren't already sick of JoeSki73, someone decided to do another interview with him. Yes, he talks about Forge. No, he doesn't apologize for Atom. Still interested? Hit the link below.

"Wow has it been that long, I sure have missed you Halo community. It’s your old pale Willy from CE United. I took off on a wild journey these past months… but enough of that I’M BACK and so are the 20 questions!

I got a chance to interview JoeSki73 the guy who made Atom and won 1st place in the Team Slayer category of the Forgetacular Contest for his map Treasury. Hope you enjoy the interview, because it has been a long time since I did an interview so I might be a bit rusty."

Fire Team Zulu: Keyes To The Past

FyreWulff Rex writes:

Hand cannons are not canon for this challenge.

Your ship AI, Cortana, didn't quite lose the Covenant when you jumped from Reach. With the Elite-led fleet pounding the ship, you must escape and land on Installation 04.

Unfortunately for you, the volatile materials stored on board are set off by any shots from your M6D Pistol or Plasma Pistol. Ignore the captain's gesture of faith and go without either sidearm - you must complete this mission with everything else you can find. And once your done, take the Vidmaster oath and submit that you've completed the mission - and enter yourself in a drawing for a Defiant Map Pack code. (Sorry, no alternate prize on this one!) You'll also get a new Fire Team Zulu achievement, "Mack of the World 1999".

This challenge can be completed on any version of Halo 1 (Xbox, PC, Mac)

Green's Machines 4 - Final Frontier

Greenskull RUL writes:

In space, no one can hear you...golf.

There's no wind, but the back nine on Anchor 9 demands you make some difficult shots. Fortunately, RUL has some pro tips to help you navigate the course.

"Greenskull is back again with another overly sophisticated Forge creation. In Green's Machines, he creates complex Rube Goldberg machines for the sole purpose of your entertainment. This time, he uses a golf ball to create an epic chain reaction involving everything from explosions to soccer balls on Anchor 9.

Check out the video below and remember: in space no one can hear you golf...but they can still see what you did."

Endure 200 Times: Achievement Unlocked

SnakeDoctor214 writes:

A long-lasting legacy!

Keep on keepin' on. If you're in need of one of ODST's more trying achievements, you might want to call on the experts. They're prepared to help you dish out some punishment of your own.

"In an unimaginable feat of dedication and grunt popping insanity, oviate1 completed his 200th Endure run.

To put 200 runs in perspective, that's 12,000 waves of everything the Covenant could throw at him - but nothing has stopped him. That's about 16 days and 16 hours of Alpha Site, not even counting the runs that failed due to lag or some mom saying it was time for dinner and that one person had to go right then.  That is true dedication for nothing other than the satisfaction that comes from assisting others on their road to recon.  Well, that and point whoring with the other team members.

Oviate1 is captain of The Spartan I Project's Team Punishment.  The team consists of nine veteran players who are highly skilled and dedicated to helping players unlock the Vidmaster Challenge: Endure achievement in Halo 3: ODST. Collectively, the team has helped more than 777 players unlock the achievement, and they aren't stopping any time soon. If you are in need of the achievement, come join us. 

The door's open and the Grunt Birthday Party skull is on!"

Bungie All Stars - Week 16

Score some face time!

I'm taking inspiration from two separate sources this week. Stosh though it would be cool to ask you to fashion Spartan helmets out of cardboard, don them, and take a photograph of your work. Mcmit emailed me and suggested it could be cool to have the community submit drawings that showed off unique ideas for in game helmets. Let's do both!

  1. Take a screenshot or photograph that showcases a magnificent Spartan or Elite helmet (existing or fabricated from scratch). In-game screenshots will be judged independently of artwork and handcrafted helmets.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, April 28th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 16” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

If you plan on building your own helmet, you don't need to follow Stosh's advice and use cardboard only. Any non-toxic material will do. If you plan on working with dangerous tools or materials, make sure you follow the necessary safety guidelines. Since this week's rules have plenty of wrinkles, I'll attach a discussion thread and answer questions as needed.

"Watch as this artist creates a diorama of a world getting glassed by a Covenant ship. This is reminiscent of the Deliver Hope Trailer, complete with two Falcons flying towards the ship."

Some of you have been playing with our Tag system. Naughty, naughty. While you made a mess, we made a list of names. If you’re on it, you abused your power and tagged someone else’s content with rude, inappropriate, or unnecessary tags. And they weren’t even funny.
