Stryke Force Ep 6 Teaser
Stryke Force has posted a teaser for episode 6 on their website - the WMP9 is up now, and weighs in at 8.5 mb. The QuickTime should be up soon, at roughly the same size. They're also recruiting for an XBL clan, so if you like their stuff, check out the clan! (Louis Wu 20:25:27 UTC) (permalink)
Now that's just...odd.
DoctorEvol pointed out a site called 'Kiss The Chief'... a series of pics of the MC, after he gets out of the military and stops working out. Bizarre stuff. (Louis Wu 19:26:01 UTC) (permalink)
T and R - done.
I think this was the last big challenge from Halo, trick-wise... Ms. Man has gotten to the bottom of Truth and Reconciliation, in single-player. (He did this in Co-op mode back in October.) You can find the vid in WMP9 format linked off the High Impact Halo forum (26.6 mb), or grab a QuickTime version from bungie.org (27.5 mb). Warning: the music will make your brain explode. And not in a good way. (Louis Wu 19:21:36 UTC) (permalink)
Moving up to the Big Leagues
LordGideon has written up Lesson 3 of his Video Production Guide - this one looks at how to use Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, for folks who want to take a step up from Windows Movie Maker. Clear, concise, helpful - go give it a read! (Louis Wu 19:16:45 UTC) (permalink)
Storm Gaming Tourney
Hardcore sends along word of a Halo 2 4v4 Slayer tourney hosted by Storm Gaming Ladders - more details can be found on their website. $1/player, money is due by July 31. Go look! (Louis Wu 17:16:00 UTC) (permalink)
Who's Got You?
They say it's not cheating, really - but it can be pretty darn annoying. What? Well, you'll have to read One One Se7en to find out. (Louis Wu 12:15:57 UTC) (permalink)
DarkChief writes to point out First Drop, a fanfic he's writing on his website, Halotips.net. Give it a look! (Check out the rest of the site while you're there.) Update: eep, looks like his account has gotten suspended. Skip this one for now - it'll be back soon. (Louis Wu 12:11:42 UTC) (permalink)
Marl heard one too many Livers call someone a n00b - and snapped. You can read his rant on his Xanga site. (Louis Wu 10:42:31 UTC) (permalink)
Project Torlan Closing
The top two guys on Project Torlan (the Halo to UT total conversion project) have dropped out, for personal reasons, which will likely bring this project to an end, though they still plan on releasing most of their work in development this summer. Sadness. Thanks to zugy for the heads-up. (Louis Wu 10:19:09 UTC) (permalink)
A sigh of relief
Time for bed, here... but before I go, something that's been in the works for quite some time. The Fan Fiction section has been moved - it's now hosted on a far more robust connection, and the code has all been rewritten in php. Should look (mostly) the same - well, the huge page listing is gone at the top of the main page, and some of the search functions are a little more interesting - but the downtime should stop happening. There's no guarantees I got everything right, so if you run into a problem, please let me know. Otherwise, though, go read the eight new stories posted this evening.
