NOTE: NEW WEEKLY CHALLENGE!


ENDERTORIAL


Hey all, just wanted to pass on a few quick items:

When we were forced to take time off earlier this year, we became concerned that readers would have moved on or grown accustomed to tackling the Challenges by themselves; but Halo Reach Daily just posted its most heavily trafficked week ever, with several record-setting days, including a tour of the WORDPRESS TOP 100. Yow! So, special thanks to EVERYONE for all coming back to the site after its unexpected break. It’s incredibly appreciated.

My name is Ender Xer0, and I approved this message.

Since we have even more readers now than before, however, it also means we’ve got new visitors here aboard the Pillar Of Awesome; and, though we’ve mentioned these things before, it’s been a while, so I thought we’d repost them:

  • I get tons of Friend Requests on XBox because of this site, but I also get what is likely a fair share of randoms too… except that on XBox Live, there’s no way to tell the difference. If you want to send me a Friend Request, go right ahead — I’m always happy to play with whoever’s interested, and I really dig gaming with new people. But — and this is the important part — when you send an FR, also send a separate message, so that I know you’re from HRD, and not just a random who has spammed his Recent Players list. That way, there won’t be any chance of me saying, “Who’s this?”, and (like a retard) deleting the req.
  • I’m totally open to all sorts of comments and feedback, good or bad, about anything on this site. I’ll never delete a comment just because it criticizes something we’ve written, and in fact I get a lot more out of the critiques than from otherwise much-appreciated praise. However, keep in mind that the Pillar Of Awesome is a No Douchebag Zone. You’ve got to be respectful of your fellow readers or you’ll be respectfully shown the airlock. As we’re all aware, Halo can sometimes be one of those games that attracts….eh, shall we say, maladjusted individuals, and if you really feel the need to get your douchebag on, then the Bungie.net message boards are thataway; but you can’t hang out here.

Okay, thanks everyone for listening!

Pax,
Ender Xer0

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: MANEX MONDAY


The Challenges have been Spree-happy for the past week or two, so we thought for the Video Of The Week we’d ask our friends over at the ManeX Gaming Channel on YouTube to offer up a bit of a killstreak tutorial, including for that elusive Running Riot medal. Everyone, check it out!

The MXG lads provide clips not of specific Challenges, but of key tactics and techniques intended to help make you a better player across ALL your Challenges. Subscribe to their Channel to get notified of updates, or follow them on Twitter here. Thanks again, guys!

Our regular Screenshot Of The Day returns tomorrow. So, if you haven’t done it already, yo: Send your screenshots to haloreachdaily@live.com, or just make a file recommendation to us on XBox (Gamertag: Ender Xer0, with a zero), and we’ll take care of the rest. Remember: we’re not looking for Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!
