Louis Wu at HBO notes that the submission period for the Win A Date With One One Se7en contest is now over; there were 3500 entries that now need to be narrowed down to 5 Halo 2 calendar winners by Wednesday. Wow.

game: 

Louis Wu mentioned in the HBO forum that there are a lot of entries for the Win A Date With One One Se7en contest currently going on at HBO, and not a few are not making the cut because submitters are not following the directions. In short:

  • Fill out the form completely, including which option (1, 2 or 3) your strip is.
  • Do NOT post your entry in the forum.

That is all.

A recent forum thread at HBO challenged forum users to complete a joke started in a One One Se7en panel using the new AutoMagic 117 StripzMaker (now with even more templates).

Now that's been turned into an official HBO contest, with five copies of the special edition Halo 2 calendar, courtesy of the Arbuthnot Entertainment Group, to the creators of the best punch lines.

...because you won't need it to watch HaloTV, a new project by the guys at cookedgamers, rapture and synide.

The service streams various Halo movies, and in addition did a live broadcast of the CAL season finals between xeno and Gamers Paradise.

Flexibility in gaming has been an often-discussed topic for quite awhile, but this is extreme: you show up for this LANfest on Long Island, and they lock you in so you can't leave until ten hours later. That's extreme, which is why they call it an X Tournament, I guess. The day after the LANfest, there's a tournament. Thanks Louis Wu.

HBO's Louis Wu pointed out a Halo multiplayer strategy guide by Kris Hull, who apparently knows a secret or two about Marathon, if the URL is to be believed. At the end of the guide is an interesting little glossary; I think Mulganistan borders Kazakhstan somewhere. They only play Counter Strike.

BGH pointed out an article at Halo Phenom documenting how, as has been done to countless PC-based shooters before it, modified maps, models and textures are being applied to PC Halo to give players what might euphemistically be called an unfair advantage. Cheating, that is.

The article contains URLs to some pictures that show such modified maps, models and textures.
