Thirsty for Grunt?

We want Grunt Plushy things! From HBO

Okay, in general, I think online petitions are silly. However, I'm willing to make an exception this time... because of the subject, and because of who's putting it forth. SketchFactor jumped on our forum yesterday to suggest that the reason there's never been a Grunt Plushy is because the marketing folks don't believe there's a demand... and he offered an online petition for interested parties to sign. If you, like me, would love to get your hands on a soft Grunt Plushy collectible... sign this now! (There are 155 signatures as of this writing. Let's crank that up a notch.)

So if you want to cuddle a nice grunt in your bed at night, I suggest you sign the petition so we can show them how much we want the cute grunty plush things...... if not, sign anyway!

Help Wanted: Leaky roof needs patching...
Posted: 10:55 am by Bongo -
After many days in wait, the delayed Halo PC 1.03 patch is finally available to gamers everywhere! You can download it at almost any Halo fansite (Sector 7 will be hosting it as soon as possible for your convenience), but for those who cant wait to see the changes it's made you can download it here at Bungie.net!

In other news, HBO is featuring a scanned article of the "Making of Halo"...
Quote:
A couple of months ago, Edge Magazine published an article in their Equip Xbox issue called 'The making of... Halo'; it was a fascinating look inside the development process. It was released online, in truncated form, at Gamesradar.uk, in late October. Not long after that, we received a scanned copy of the full article, from broony, and we set about getting permission from Edge to put it online. We never did receive an answer from them... but the issue is now long off the shelves, so you'll find it in our Press Scans section (which is otherwise woefully backlogged - scanner's on the fritz). broony did a pretty good scanning job, and I did my best to make the result as readable as possible without being too hard to download. Enjoy!

You can view the article here!

UPDATE: Sector 7 now has the latest patch for Halo PC up for download. You can download it HERE

Do you play the waiting Game?
Posted: 2:11 pm by Wolfy -
Waiting is something no one likes to do. Whether itís waiting for a demo download or waiting for your favourite show - we all wait. But there is one thing many gamers donít like to wait for, and thatís game releases. A new article from our very own Sonic explains why waiting is better than just demanding a game to come out. Its a pretty interesting read.

Plinth?
Posted: 8:28 am by Wolfy -
From HBO

Last year, Bungie.org ran the Pillar of Art contest, where we solicited traditional-media artwork from Bungie fanatics. With $500 in cash, plus oodles of schwag (and some pretty cool stuff straight from Bungie), we were assured of fierce competition. We brought out the best in people... but for some, the best wasn't good enough. Never let it be said that bungie.org neglects the little guy. Introducing... The Plinth Of Art - the contest for the rest of us. All you have to do is come up with an art-themed One One Se7en strip, and you could be a winner! Full details, including rules, prizes, and deadlines, can be found on the Plinth page. Remember - it's not how good you are, it's how many people you can claw your way over.

Plinth (noun)
: the lowest part of the base of an architectural column. In case you didn't know.
Holiday Wallpaper
Posted: 6:45 am by Wolfy -
To greet the holidays, we have put a nice holiday Sector 7 wallpaper. You can check it out HERE.

We would like to wish everyone have wonderful, and safe winter holidays (don't want anyone to drop their Halo disks in the snow... or have it plowed away :tongue:).

And for now, I must go shovel with my dad in this huge storm here in New Jersey, where as of now we have about 6 inches of snow - and its still comming down hard.
