I use pico de gallo instead of dressing - so it adds a little jalapeno spice and of course onions and tomatoes for flavor and moisture.
Halo |OT9| Pico de gallo.

I actually want to try this...

Halo 4 comes out on a public holiday in Melbourne Australia.

Is it? I bet I'll have an exam on the 7th though...

Faye Reagan would be such a good VP for me...



anyways I'm voting for the president that is for BR starts and proper playlist management. Someone tweet them and figure out which one that is.

actually never even heard of google flights, just booked our honeymoon to siesta key
I hadn't before a week or two ago. Had a here to Seattle flight for $300 less than anywhere else I could find, unfortunately that was still too much and too last minute for me to make it to PAX. It was a good thing to learn about though.

How did I manage to be at PAX and still miss pretty much all of the HaloGAF shenanigans? Arg.
DrunkGAF? Didn't you have your daughter with you?

You know what IS game affecting? White text. And no Mark V.

my lips hurt from slurping.
Mark V, Halo V, gotta hold something back for the next game.


Now that most of my fears have been allayed by the Bulletin (primarily, the ability to roll back Grifball scoring to round based if the new method fails) i have only one remaining concern.

In Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST the Campaign post game Carnage Report displayed the correct competition time in both the Game History and after the film in Theater mode.

Wait till you see this masterpiece!
For some reason the Halo Reach reports on bnet round up to the next whole minute. I'm not sure what they are doing at Waypoint. This 12:11 run displays as 12:57 in Waypoint's version of the Carnage Report (edit-might be counting cut scenes).

This may seem minor to most, and it is, but this inconsistency has made scoring speed runs extremely difficult, and verifying Mythic (SLASO) speed runs nearly impossible. I really hope we get accurate timing information in Halo 4 considering High Speed Halo planning to take on Spartan Ops speed runs.

That was Sunday night I believe, which would be the reason for my absence as well.
Ah, that'll do it.

We're reworking the logistics for the girls for next year. I'll get a three day pass, they all get Saturday passes. So we all do the PAX thing one day, and I can do a bit more concentrated HaloGAFing. I was there, but didn't get to hang with you guys as much as I was hoping.

We missed each other completely.

We also set up an entire Halo 3 LAN that nobody showed up for. We converted it to a TU Reach LAN and it was nonstop full until the freeplay ended (and Vanilla, and the CE campaign co-op station with two solo TVs for maximum viewing pleasure)

ODST one didn't work out since ODST wants hard drives for Firefight LAN and PAX didn't have any this year :(

edit: oh yeah you left sunday :( boo. i'm glad i changed my flight to monday afternoon, otherwise i woulda missed it too! y'all better show up again next year too.

So here's a question. 343i Must have LOTS of promo and marketing assets, Hi-res images and the likes. Why do we never get hold of this content. Is it some copyright concern? I'm not wanting all the stuff pre release but some kind of huge .rar file containing the stuff after launch.

Like a larger version of those Fan-Site Kits from back in the day.

Doesn't the Xbox press site already not do that? There are artwork (renders), logos, photos and other PR shenanigans for Halo 4 on it.

Its far from all the promo material, Thats like a small subset, What about the renders from the 343i WU with the spartan armor renders or the images that are sent to distributors for preorder's.

Very nice. I will be voting via absentee ballot so I hope I can get in on this as well.
I can't stand absentee. I need the experience of seeing it click on the screen.

Which reminds me, why the hell did we switch to electronic machines and not get something really simple like a receipt so you know your vote was processed correctly?

So the plan is to be at a midnight release for Halo 4, play Heroic solo campaign up until the polls open, cast my blue vote in a sea of red, return home and continue on.

Question: does the campaign start ranking you up like in Reach, or is it a completely separate experience?

Statement: Any Spoon fans out there, listen to Divine Fits as fast as you can. Great stuff.

Well the renders are there under Artwork.


Also, are the helmets growing on anyone else?

I'll be going straight to Legendary to unlock that Mark VI hopefully day 1.
