4 Years of Piercing Bullets

So today’s our 4 year anniversary and to celebrate i’ve created a HALO 3 MAP! to mark the occasion:

You can download the map from my fileshare by clicking HERE

——-

Now we were going to hold a gaming night to celebrate, but being as we’re going to be playing in the tournament over at MSXBW this saturday, this is no longer happening.

This last year has been slow and we haven’t achieved as much as we have in previous years, but this is all going to change in the coming months. We have something very special going on in our team, we have fantastic members with skill, but most importantly we’re all dedicated people, we put our best into everything we attempt. We’re loyal to the people around us and have built up a strong friendship in the past 4 years, and for this we should be proud.

We’re the greatest team in existence, not because of our skill, but because of our friendship!

I’m honoured to have you all in our team, and priviledged to have your friendship.

Happy Birthday guys!!

Bungie Day – 07/07/08 – New Game From Bungie?

Bungie have just released a new ViDoc contatining information about what’s in store for us this coming Bungie day:

RELEASE DATA:

“7/7” has long been heralded as “Bungie Day” by the Bungie fan community. This tradition was born in part due to the significance the number 7 has played in all of Bungie’s games over the years (including the Halo series – which happened to involve 7 Halo rings, “343” Guilty Spark, Master Chief is Spartan 117, etc..). For more information, check out the Halo wiki on the web, the number of references to seven in the Halo Universe is quite staggering. (http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/seven) In many ways, seven is the ‘official’ number of Bungie, if such a thing existed.

This year, 7/7 will bring a few special treats to fans of Bungie and Halo but some are only available for a limited time so you’ll need to act quickly…

Commemorative Gamer Pics – on 7/7, fans can download 7 exclusive gamerpics, for free, from Xbox LIVE Marketplace. These are only available for one day and then they’re gone forever.

In addition to the pics, you can also obtain a special Bungie Day dashboard theme to adorn your Xbox 360. This too is only going to be available for download on 7/7.

Cold Storage, an update of Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer classic, Chill Out, will be available to download for free. The emptied Forerunner research facility serves as a grim reminder of how even the best laid plans can fail. Warmly crafted, dutifully beautified update of Halo: CE classic multiplayer map, Chill Out. Love, Bungie”.

Once, the Cold Storage facility was a vibrant, active research center on Installation 05. An accidental contamination resulted in an unforeseen outbreak, which compromised the Forerunner center. Now, emptied and silent, watched only by a local caretaker, the abandoned structure serves as a reminder of how something as powerful as science is ultimately beholden to nature.

Starting on 7/7, the Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack will be available to purchase a new low price of 600 points. If you’ve yet to experience this epic collection of multiplayer battlegrounds, the time has never been better.

4th of July Weekend kicks off a special “Fourth of July” playlist where players can earn double-XP competing in a variety of Halo 3 gametypes (7/3 – 7/7).

On 7/7, the “Icy Treats” playlist is released which consists of all Cold Storage games (the new Halo 3 map) and offers double-XP. (7/7 – 7/9) Members of the Bungie team will be playing throughout the weekend so you may encounter one of the Halo 3 developers on the battlefield.

On 7/10, a special “Fiesta Double-XP” weekend kicks off, with Fiesta gametypes (random weapons) offering some unpredictable antics. (7/10 – 7/14).

There’s plenty there to get us all excited but what i’m interested in is what was said at the begining of the ViDoc. At the part where they got into the Warthog one guy (Luke) begins to say

“Our independence has us striving to be a multigame studio and the first thing we are going to announce is..”

He’s then cut out by Shishka who then interupts with

“Whoah Whoah Whoah we’re not announcing anything yet

Check out the section on 0:41 in the above video to see what I mean!

There are alot of rumours flying around about Microsoft going to steal the show at E3, and even more rumours about Halo 4 already being in development, either way it looks like we will be getting some sort of announcement about a new game from Bungie on either Bungie Day or at E3 the following week!

I’ll keep everyone informed but in the meantime you can discuss this story in the forums over at MSXBOX-WORLD:

4 Year Anniversary on 16th July 2008

Not too far away now guys! It’ll be four years on the 16th July ’08

MSXBW Live Event: GTA4 – Results

The tenth MSXBW Live Event kicked off at 7pm on Saturday 17th March ’08. This time we gathered to play the blockbuster game Grand Theft Auto 4, an obvious choice really. There wasn’t allot of interest shown in the event because initially no prizes were announced, the players able to attended were:

Rikoshay
ShadowMask
Waynimus
LCDking
CrimsonSlam
Silesky
TheMehWarrior
BannedWorm
Ads1074
Teh Jocko
and one other guy.. something lee? I’ve forgoten the name!

The night kicked off with some confusion from ShadowMask (Rob Cram), he couldn’t quite figure out how to set up games the way we wanted due to the shoddy multiplayer ‘menu’. Once everything was sorted we had some great games, Mafiya Work and Car Jack City were allot of fun and the Cannonball Run was entertaining. Most of the night was dominated by races which did get a bit tedious, the boat and helicopter races were long and boring however the ice cream truck and fire engine race was allot of fun!
We then ventured into some free roam where allot of people ducked out without saying goodbye!
With just Rikoshay, Waynimus, LCDking and CrimsonSlam left we proceeded to hold up a Burger Shot with a 4* wanted level, Jump off buildings into helicopter blades to see how far they’d sling us! and try to get scooters up 20 flights of stairs (just so we cound ride them off the building!) In my opinion the most fun was had in the free roam, very relaxed and a good laugh!

The following day Waynimus announced a secret prize (very sneaky) which was awarded to Silesky for being the most concistent player. Silesky claims one free Xbox Live Arcade Game.

So in future guys, when no prizes are announced there still could be something they’re hiding so always check for the monthly live events over at MSXBOX World!

Overall a very entertaining night, beats hunting pidgeons any day!
