This took nearly a year to complete. I poured my heart and soul into this video. I hope you guys enjoy it!!

Special thanks to Josh E. for capturing a few QTE clips on his Xbox for me!! Also, shout-out to the Halo Community on Twitter for all the support in giving me feedback on my work-in-progress clips! I love you guys!!

Lediandol just provided us one of the greatest things I've ever seen. There are those that say Halo wouldn't work on the big screen. This trailer proves irrefutably otherwise. 

Willjax Brantley would be proud. 

@KenJi16b rolling into the spotlight with a really awesome Garry's Mod video recreation of the H3 Believe trailer. Loved this!

Da Mad Badger with a cool largely-H3-focused tribute...

Seeing as we just recently celebrated Halo 3's birthday, it's a perfect time to revisit this amazing cinematic tribute/remastering by Joshua Ezzell. It's so pretty. 

Really cool machinima teaser from Ascend Hyperion!

"I've never needed a past..."

The story of Spartan Agent 27, Naomi Marres continues right where it left off. At the corners of betrayal and confusion. Coming soon!

Check out this cool Halo space battle reenactment by Captain Jack as played in the PC game "Space Engineers." 


Check out DoubleAA's Final Halo: Reach Montage!



I lol'd.


Until next time… Live well, play Halo, and dig deeper.
