Hey...
Seems BG:H has gotten their own screenshot investigation, sort of... more like a pretty image - and we know that Bungie's doing. :)

"I don't like excuses"~Donald Trump in "The Apprentice"
Hellface a programmer from Gearbox Software took time to post a message regarding the Halo Editing Kit and its absence of presence (...that makes sense, right?). LouisWu of HBO reminds us that for inquiries about the HEK, you should bother Microsoft. Thanks Louis!

In a shameless act of self-promotion, go check out our new Invision powered forums!

343gs Wallpaper! Woah, Bungie IS on a roll!
"This beautiful wallpaper was created by Zo.E, the same artist responsible for nearly every piece of the new Bungie.net site. She was working on art for the navigation widget and the resulting image was so cool that we all wanted a desktop made out of it. So Zo.E did some more magic and voila, a masterpiece was born. Enjoy!" -- _BNET

Sorry for the late Easter news, but I had to attend a family get together. But anyway! Halo news:

Sonic has done a special Easter "The Marines" comic for us today. He was unable to post it himself, but I think the message is quite clear - Happy Easter!

New Playlists Up!
Posted: 5:12 pm by Jag - Halo 2
The new playlists for Halo 2 have been up for a while if you've missed them! And they're a blast!

Team Action Sack: This playlist is what you should be playing if you're looking for a chaotic and unpredictable experience! Some games include Rocket CTF, or SWAT Fiesta, Ninja Assault - and much more! These games were submitted by the fans - I submitted Invisaball a while ago, and now you can play it in Matchmaking! Bungie does listen to the fans!

Rumble Armory: This is also an action-packed playlist, abiet less insane! This playlist pits you against up to 7 other people, with games that feature a single weapon set - games include Brutes, Swords, Sentinal Beams, and other similar games! Give it a try!

6 vs 6 Battle: This is basically something to fit between Team Skirmish and Big Team - 6 vs 6 battles using a mixture of the Big Team playlist and Team Skirmish.

Additional Changes: The Head to Head and Major Clanmatch playlists are gone - forever... Minor Clanmatch has been renamed 'Clanmatch' and now supports up to 5 people, but your Minor Clanmatch ranks remain intact. Team Snipers is now ranked - and your 'invisible' rank is now visible! If you played a little, you may be a 5 or 6, but some people are in the upper 20's! Big Team now supports only 7 or 8 players per team, to make way for 6 vs 6 Battle.

...a pretty significant update, to say the least.

Team ActionSack?
Posted: 3:12 pm by Jag - Weekly Whats Update
Bungie finally posted another WWU - and this one contains some very, very important information regarding the new playlists:

Quote:
~Major Clanmatch and Head to Head have been removed.

~Minor Clanmatch has received a change in configuration. It will now be called Clanmatch and will allow for team of 4-5 clan members each. Your Minor Clanmatch ranks will persist to the new Clanmatch playlist.

~Two new unranked playlists have been added, Rumble Armory and Team ActionSack.

~6v6 Team Battle has been added as a ranked playlist featuring team sizes of 5-6 players each.

~Big Team Battle now supports only larger team sizes of 7-8 players each.

~Team Snipers is now a ranked playlist and has a total of 15 maps. Your hidden rank will now be displayed.

~WE DID NOT WIPE ANY STATS, STOP LISTENING TO RUMORS! CALM DOWN!


Important information indeed! The WWU also contains a little bit of an FAQ on how to change your 360 theme, and some stuff about the Halo Movie... Read it here!
