Halo Data Drops

343 has been dribbling a series of cryptic 'data drops' each Friday, graduall building out some backstory. Is it leading up to Glasslands? Primordium? CEA? Halo 4? The answer is probably, yes.

Data Drop 1 | Data Drop 2 | Data Drop 3 | Data Drop 4 | Data Drop 5 | Data Drop 6







Halo Community Sites | The Halo community is vast. Here are a few highlights.

HaloGAF! Yes, we're our own webzone now. Thread archives, .gifs, and more. Duncan goes above and beyond.

HBO
The oldest and biggest Halo fan site on the web, run by one of the nicest (and oldest) people on the internet. If there's news about Halo, HBO will cover it.

Bungie.net forums
A vast community of upstanding and thoughtful commentators.

Tied The Leader
A community, clan and site dedicated to fair play and thoughtful commentary on Halo.

rampancy.net
Another long time Halo fan site, dedicated to unusually in-depth commentary and analysis of the series, as well as news and community creations.

Forward Unto Dawn
In the spirit of Ascendant Justice, FUD is devoted to analysis and commentary on various aspects of the Halo games and universe.

Major League Gaming
An organized league of professional gamers, in which Halo plays a starring role. Forums, league schedules, rules and live streams are available from their site.

Forge Hub
A large community devoted to creating custom maps in Forge. Tutorials, guides and an active forum to provide feedback and testing, as well as an excellent resource for well crafted maps.​

I almost went with, "Believe, For Now" but dammit 343 earned a lot of trust, not to mention HOLYSHIT at E3.

I'll spend some time over lunch doing a proper OT update, it's well past time to push Halo 4 stuff from the news updates and into the thread proper.

Thought this thread would come sooner during E3, but better late than never! My last post from the last thread:

Indeed.

Great job to both of you! It would have been a pain to find all the videos I have missed without FUD. Oh, and I enjoy CyReN's MLG impressions videos. Very helpful info coming from those guys, especially Walshy.

So to follow up from last thread, what DOES Cortana yell in the E3 trailer again? At work so I can't check myself.

Kicking off with some novel discussion because I just started reading Glasslands.

Halsey bit back the indignation that had been fermenting since she’d first seen complete strangers on Reach daring to wear the Spartans’ Mjolnir armor.
This is referring to Noble, right?

Mmmm...

Question: Once Halo 4 comes out, is it getting its own OT to coincide with this one, or are we keeping this for all Halo?
If I had to take a guess, it will be a Halo 4 gaming side thread and when it is moved to community, it will be locked in preference to the Halo OT36.

We'll probably have two for a while, until (as with Reach) discussion blends together and the Halo 4 OT's are phased out.

Probably not. When Halo 4 releases it will be Halo 4 OTs until the next game.

The general Halo |OT| was just because of the Anniversary/Reach overlap.
