I hope they do ramp up the credits for challenges, both dailies and weeklies, jackpots and chance of jackpot.

I played Objective a lot during the weekend didn't hit jackpot once. Then this fat kid Nutter said he got it both nights. Hes fat enough.

I'd like to hit Inheritor before H4 comes out. Getting kinda close-ish to Reclaimer.

I thought Cyren already said that issue didn't have any new info?

Anyone stitch that together yet?

I've just been emailed an image with a title halo4 puzzle. Your piece is 26/32. Came from Xbox. Looks like the possible start of an A R G. Anyone else get anything.

So earlier today I was playing a game of Firefight Doubles on Corvette with a random. I'm sitting back and sniping, as usual, he's cycling weapons between spawns. At the time of the, um, incident, he was rocking the shotgun.

The wave is Brutes and Grunts (Arcadefight NEP). I see a squad advancing across the center, the Brute flanked wide by three Grunts. I do a quick zoom in, take aim, and land a perfect headshot on the Brute; he does a nice reverse backflip and that's that.

I un-scope and see my partner was going for the same target; he's most of the way out in the middle, about 10 feet from the now dead Brute; I didn't see him beacuse I was scoped. Problem is, all three Grunts went into suicide mode when the Brute dropped, forming a tight triangle - with him in the center.

Instantly, six grenades from the Grunts, several scattered on the ground from the last wave and the one the Brute dropped go off. (Pretty sure the ones my poor partner subsequently dropped chained in as well.) Took a few seconds for the explosions to die down and I see his corpse pinwheel down from the ceiling at the far corner of the screen.

I felt bad, but was laughing, hard.

Totally the sort of thing I'd take clips of were rendering still around, or a story post if I could. Alas, text is what you get. It was hilarious. I suspect he didn't find it quite as amusing, though.

Anyone want to assemble all these pics? I'm really curious as to what the final picture is.

Here is my piece:http://image.engage.xbox.com/lib/feca167070610c7c/m/4/12993-H4_27.jpg
I give it an hour and we'll have the final image up somewhere. I'll see if I got one.

Edit: crap, can't log into email from work. :\
Sure looks like it. :eek

Fourteenth of what?
14th piece of the picture.

If someone wants my image I can email it but like has been said I think you can just change the URL to 1-32. Just need someone with photoshop and ten minutes spare.

Change the last digits of the url and you can get all the images much easier.

The world's easiest ARG. I imagine this will be "solved" within an hour.


And yeah, it's the "key" art which will be used in packaging.

You can do that, just checked.
Are the pictures in order? If not, shopping it together would be a huge pain.

For me this is a level of arg that is within my intelligence boundaries. Still can't do it though as I've no image stitching abilities. I am fail cry.
