Halo 4I'm starting a clan in Halo 4, called the Silver Alliance. Anyone wants to join, they can on one condition, they have to be at least an SR 20. I'm not just letting anyone join the Silver Alliance. They have to prove themselves. Series of 5v5 Infinity Slayer for the trial. Top half players will be in the clan.More Like This
The Reclaimer Trilogy will never stop...After the announcement of Halo 5: Guardians...yes, that's what they're calling it at the moment (why not call it Halo 5: Electric Boogaloo?), Microsoft Studios corporate vice president (cue the Imperial March Theme) Phil Spencer said that the "Reclaimer Trilogy" had been expanded into a longer series of games, saying they "[didn't] want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy."

"The Halo series is all we have left. If it wasn't for Halo, the Xbox would have been relegated to the landfill where they store other failed consoles. Now that we sold Bioware, alienated ourselves from Bungie, relegated Rare to making Kinect games and turned a majority of developers against us, we realized how fucked we are. Our days of relevance are numbered, but we hope that pointlessly shoehorning The Arbiter into the series to look for John as he apparently has gone AWOL over the death of his AI, we can keep our gaming system rele

Due to my own miscommunication about the time of the due date (sorry about that, I SHOULD have said it was supposed to end the 31st at 11:59, but saying midnight September 1st was confusing) and the fact I was in a lot of pain yesterday and not able to focus on much, the contest is still open until TONIGHT, September 1st, at 11:59 Pacific Time as an apology. The judging will take place tomorrow and the journal will be updated several times, each time with more and more entries removed until only the winners are left standing!

KETO! I've recently made a lifestyle change. I'm one of those people who reddit too frequently. I stumbled upon /r/keto one day and I've been hooked since. I'm eleven days in and eight pounds lost so far. I'm hoping to lose a total of 30 pounds so I can fit into my old clothes! (yay). Unfortunately the last year has been a bit of a roller-coaster and I've gained a lot of weight But as I said, this is a lifestyle change for me, not a simple diet or fad that will fade. Something to help me stay healthy and give me more energy! Have any of you made any lifestyle changes recently? I'd love to hear about them!

I never really like making contests because I get lazy...but because I don't get gift art (wow I'm so selfish lol) or anything, I really really REALLY want other people's drawings of my characters ;____; It makes my day SO much.

After the overwhelmingly positive response I've gotten yesterday on the question of the event-tan contest, I just couldn't help but make this official ASAP! So here it is! Officially announcing the winter 2012-2013 event-tan contest!
So, here's the rules: If you've got an idea... GO FOR IT! If you have any doubts about if your idea would be accepted or not, just ask here, and I'll be glad to tell you if it's ok or not.
So, first off... what IS an event-tan? Well, remember our object-tan contest from last summer? (If not, check out the old blog posts, and the submission folder.) Well, same concept, except this time, instead of anthropomorphizing objects, we're doing the same thing to events.
Now that we've cleared THAT out of the way... what IS an event? Well, quite simply, a little bit of anything. It can be Christmas or new year's, it can be the holidays in general, it can be birthdays, first kiss, the Mayan apocalypse (or just the apocalypse in general even), the winter sol

Earn MS Points + Halo 4 CodesGamers who spend 35-75 hours will receive 100 MS points for free and those who play 70-140 hours will earn 300 free MS points for their game play. If you are addicted to Halo 4's multiplayer mode, you can receive 600 MS points for playing 140 plus hours of multiplayer mode.More Like This
Also, spending 1500 MS points on Halo content earns you 100 MS points, and spending 3000 MS points on Halo content earns you 200 points. However you can only earn them by the end of November, and can only earn 800 MS points altogether.
I'd say it's barely worth it, but that's my opinion.
Halo 4 will not be making it's way to the personal computer. Just like it's 4 predecessors, Halo 3, ODST, Reach, and Wars, it will remain a console exclusive for the Xbox 360.

Dillan and Pablo stood in awe in front of what appeared to be the control room for whatever installation they were on. But this control room was much different than what was described in One-one-sevens debriefing files. There wasnt just one large screen and terminal that ran the whole facility but many. They encompassed the entire inner ring of the platform.
I count twelve stations judging by the repeating patterns on the consoles. Pablo said hesitantly. You dont suppose the Forerunner could have controlled the array from here could you?
Dillan observed the three functional screens and surmised that it was possible. One-one-seven had already neutralized installations zero-four and five. Plus the data he found suggests there were up to ten at one point. That made five. Adding in Recon Sevens work on installations zero-one and three brought the remaining number to another five.
The screens all flashed a deep emerald green. Probab
