    Hey long lost readers. Were back with some H4 updates. The good news is the feeling of Halo 2/3 is back in terms of jumping moving and game play. Obviously it is not 100% halo 3 but it is far enough from Reach for us to comment on the matter. (Hopefually 343 has learned from Reach's EPIC fail). There have been lots of videos coming out onto the interwebs showing halo 4's multi-player. The BR is back and I must say I am very happy with how I see it working in gameplay. I recently ran into this video online, for you CTF fans you will see the new "flag carrier" ability the first time through for those people who never pick up the flag *shame on you* you might have to watch it twice.

    Hold onto your frags as the the news has finally arrived that Halo 4 will be release November 6, 2012. This is a big relief to many of us as Reach was a major flop, in both game style and game play. Myself and my fellow competitive gamers have high hopes for Halo 4. With the BR coming back and hopefully most of the additional garbage that was integrated into Reach being left ...

    Website Blocking
    The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

    Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users
    It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

    Chaos for the Internet
    Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

    Halo's Combat Evolved remake comes out tonight. For those of you who believe that this game is a flop I can tell you that it is far from that. The campaign is amazingly redone and remastered. Yes the multiplayer is basically part of reach but that aside it is with the 40 bucks to just play Halo 1 again with friends. ...

    The long awaited remake of Halo 1 is coming out next week. The game that started it all Halo 1 is back with updated graphics and a campaign that has some bonus features (without taking away from the real feel of Halo 1). If your an 18 year old reading this post you were a massive 8 years old when Halo 1 came out. For those of you who never played Halo 1 you should go grab and Xbox 1 and Halo 1 and play it !! Do it now we will wait..... Halo CEA well be 343's hat tip to halo and will hopefully show that 343 is ready to take on the task of creating Halo 4.

    Now Halo CEA might not have the multiplayer experience that everyone was really hoping for (I know this is a huge downer) but at the same time I am very happy to see the effort put forth to bring Halo 1 back into the picture. The Halo 1 Campaign is arguably one of the best out there and I will be more than glad to play through that again with a friend over CO-OP on Xbox Live. (Assault on Control room should bring back many old memories).

    Anyway this short from 343 will show whats to come and for some of you older people could bring a tear or some goosebumps.

    ** Note Video is Hosted on HaloClips.net - Which will be getting a official public appearance very soon.. Enjoy





    Today we take a break from halo and take a step back to remember the tragic events of 9/11/01 and take a moment of silence for all 2,998 people who died that day.

    *Warning you might need new pants after reading the following **

    343i has been hard at work on an update for Halo: Reach both to bring new experiences to fans as well as address longstanding feedback from the community. The most noticeable change in the works? The return of the wicked, deadly and wildly fun ?Halo: Combat Evolved? Magnum pistol to ?Halo: Anniversary? and ?Halo: Reach? multiplayer gameplay. An addition that will be supported in special, classic playlists, the original Magnum pistol is sure to rekindle some of the madness and carnage players reveled in a decade ago.

    In addition, the update, which is targeted for release in October, will introduce several multiplayer fixes for ?Halo: Reach? fans have been clamoring for. Armor Lock now absorbs a level of damage based on the amount of remaining energy a player has, diminishing its effectiveness. Active Camo?s duration has been reduced and the ability to block sword attacks using any weapon other than another sword has been disabled. And for fans of precision firing, reticle ?bloom? is now configurable, delivering increased accuracy when firing in rapid succession.

    This update will also enable ?Halo: Reach? players using an Xbox 360 4GB console without a HDD to utilize Campaign and Firefight matchmaking which previously required a HDD.

    Myself and the Rest of HT are very pleased to hear what 343 has done to Reach with Halo 1A. It has finally given us a reason to get active again and to get back into halo. Now please enjoy the video below.

    ** Notable times:
    3:30 - Shield POP is Back
    4:10 - This minute of awesome with no bloom on the DMR (need new pants now enjoy)
