Dax if I remember correctly the object in Halo 2 that you're refering to is a forerunner factory.
It makes the sentinels. The flood/Covenant {flood I think} blow it up for obvious reasons.


Let me do a little research, but I'm almost sure.


Edit: Mua ha ha, Halo 2 keeps no secrets from me {except for Forunner Tank :( }

Watch it from 3rd person, theres not really any technique besides solid aiming (no button glitches in h3)
im pretty sure that one shot flag beat down combined with gun shot is still in as it just happened to me in mlg, i was full health and died instantly. what a sad day to be me.

There are a few bugs with the ball and maybe flag that results in a one hit melee kill when it's not.


I'm sure it will be fixed.


Also; If I downloaded the Bungie Day 07 icons, shouldn't I be able to re-download them on my other xbox? As long as they're in my download history, I can get to them, no?

Look at what happened to Eazy, he cannot find the bungie day 07 stuff anywhere, so the answer is probably no. As they will take it down after bungie day.

I want to drive a Forerunner tank:(

Edit: I've been meaning to ask, what was Jason Jone's role in Halo 3 (if he even had one)? I didn't seem him listed as Project Lead Designer.

Jones is credited in the Special Thanks for Halo 3. He was not involved at the day-to-day project level.

Wow, Dax read my mind, I've been wanting to ask that question for quite some time.
But I guessed at the answer, seems I was unfortunately right.

I can dream...
He played through the game near H3 Content Complete with each mission's designer and provided some feedback to them and at the overall project level.

What was Jason so busy with that he barely worked on Bungie's biggest game yet?? Hmmm...
Well I don't 'know anything' and don't want to seem like I'm talking out of turn,
but from the Legendary DVD where he, Joseph Staten and Marty O Donnell talk about Halo 2, one can see that with all the work that went, the ridiculous crunch hours, and the forced cutting of a sizeable chunk of content that hearts were kind of broken.
I'm not sure he wanted to work on Halo anymore, and I don't really blame him, if that even is the case.

I'm just interpreting this from what little there is to go on, so I don't think anyone should pay heed to my unfair ramblings.

I was goofing around obviously. I'm pretty sure Jason was busy liberating Bungie from Microsoft. Its certainly plausible.

So any word yet on when the maps will be available for download? It's probably 2 a.m., PST, right?
That's a safe assumption, unless they decide to be silly and do 7:07am PST or something.

PS: to the Bungie crew, this year's Bungie Day theme is glorious, and it's exactly what I want in a dashboard theme - simple, elegant, and awesome. Kudos to your art staff for putting it together!

Holy crap. That kid put a LOT of effort into those weapons - but the scarier part was how he has every single reload animation down. (He even keeps the hand shape for the non-sword-holding hand...)

Thanks for finding that, juices!
And not just the reloading movements. My kid saw the start of it, asked to watch. It's a kid and his cardboard creations (seriously impressive stuff), what's the harm? Then he starts corpse humping. :lol

I was smiling - then I frowned. Our society is doomed.

He said something more specific in the Halo 1 commentary. It's been several months since I listened to it (so I could be way off here), but I'm pretty sure Jones praised the simple mechanics of H1 and also the sense of discovery or something like that. And he said he'd be trying to recreate that again in the future.
