    It's amazing what deleting an improperly placed spawn zone can do!

    Story #1 from tonight's gaming. Testing the newest version of my Rat Race remake. More accurate to the original, and cover to reduce "spawn and throw grenade" or even eliminate it!

    The slightly redesigned Green<->[strike]Blue[/strike]Red tunnel is the host of the first encounter.

    Ambushing Tea Party. There is a high percentage of holograms in this picture.

    Everyone regroups, and encounters each other at the trough. I didn't survive long after I armor locked, but a teammate was able to escape their certain fate with my noble sacrifice.

    In a moment of pure genius, Dogeight makes most of Red team fall for a hologram by making it look like he went AFK. Clever girl.

    Does anyone know the for sure way to get the skull helmet?
    Is it by buying every thing in the armory or just all the helmets?

    It's unlocking every piece of armor, is my understanding. I know people who've done all the helmets, no dice.

    this announcement brought to you by darleysam:

    Halo Combat Evolved remake coming November 15, 2011
    The Halo: Combat Evolved remake is allegedly being developed by New Jersey-based Saber Interactive, the company behind TimeShift and Namco's upcoming Inversion, but we've been unable to confirm the nature of the engine powering it. We understand that it's something other than the Reach engine.

    The Halo: Combat Evolved update, one of two Halo games currently in development under the watchful eye of 343 Industries, is expected to support 1080p resolution and 3D televisions. Details on multiplayer are supposedly still being worked out, but we understand the remake will likely feature online co-op (the original game supported two-player split-screen co-op).

    I have to assume that they're outsourcing the CE-remake because everyone they have is working on the next new Halo game. From the kinds of people they've taken on I suppose it would seem like a waste to set them to work updating an old game, but at the same time it does concern me that all they seem to be doing at the moment is glorified administration. Hopefully they'll announce something at E3.

    See I thought they were going to use the remake to cut their teeth, as it'd be easier, and people would be far more forgiving, letting them hit the ground running with the next entry.

    Yeah that's what I had been expecting, it would've been a good starting point to let everything settle in, so I guess they just feel they're up to a bigger task.

    I believe it's just all the helmets, but you also have to be Inheritor.

    Okay guys, about 6 months ago I dragged my 360 & TV over to a friend's place and we started up a Halo ODST Legendary Co-Op campaign. Unfortunately we couldn't quite get through the whole thing in one sitting and we're currently about two missions away from finishing. If we picked up where we left off over live would I still get the co-op achievement?

    Just realized none of us linked the update. Click!


    http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=30547


    excerpt
    Playlists

    * Multi Team: As far as major playlist changes, the most notable is Multi Team which now features 4 teams of 3 instead of 6 teams of 2. Since Rocket Race doesn’t work with teams of 3, we’re upgrading you to Rocket Hog Race! We’ve also added 3 Ball to the lineup to replace the regular Oddball gametype.

    * Team SWAT: New gametype offerings are now available in the Team SWAT playlist. New gametypes include Oddball, Stockpile and 3 Plots.

    * Grifball: The Grifball playlist is returning for an extended stay as a Community playlist. We’ve updated to the latest gametypes and maps, as well as added the new maps Pinwheel and Oracle’s Revenge.

    * Community Slayer: The second round of Community Slayer is coming and with it comes 14 maps (10 new!) built by members of our very own Bungie community. Similar to the previous run, we’ll keep this playlist active for a couple weeks. Play, vote and let us know which your favorite Community maps are in the Optimatch forum!


    Gametypes


    * Bro Slayer: This new gametype consists of Team Slayer with co-op style spawning, featured on a variety of maps in Team Slayer, Big Team Battle and Noble Map Pack. Similar to Invasion spawning you can cycle through teammates or choose from your backfield spawns, but watch out for backfield spawn campers!

    * Invasion Skirmish: Think of Invasion Slayer, with no vehicles and after capturing drop zones you get instant weapon drops that alternate between Spartan and Covenant regardless of who caps the zone. You’ll still experience loadout and weapon drop progression as each tier advances. Three flavors will be available including Invasion Skirmish (SvE), Spartan Skirmish (SvS) and Elite Skirmish (EvE). These gametypes will be available on a variety of maps in the Invasion and Noble Map Pack playlists. Spartan Skirmish on Anchor 9 is my favorite, check them out and tell us what you think!

    * Assault: Players may no longer disarm bombs while their Armor Lock equipment is activated, this affects all Assault gametypes as well as Invasion gametypes with an Assault phase.

    Also, in a moment of awesome coincidence, Bungie posts a bunch of user created Birthday cards. On my birthday.

    It's so weird though, you would think with it being it's own playlist, and a permanent playlist at that, that it would always have 13.

    Less people = faster search times.

    Also 13 people may or may not force them to reduce it to 2 player splitscreen instead of 4.
