New Blog!

I made this blog to be the primary "updater" for all things Working Class Halo, though I did add personal Halo stuff from time to time.

But I decided to keep this blog only for Working Class Halo and I made a new blog: Halo 3 Noob.

Check it out and tell me what you think!

It only took 50 games on Saturday...

I'm a Commander!  Finally hit that 35 mark!  Now my highest is 36, but I went back down to a 35 at the end of the day.  50 games on Saturday.  Won 70% of them (really, I did the math).

We either slaughtered or got slaughtered.  Except for one or two where we won at the last second with an incredible comeback.

Check out my service record if you want to check it for real and see some stats from the games.

Finally Got Some Play Time!

I finally got some time on the new maps to really see what I thought.  With my Dad visiting the day before I couldn't really play any of them yet except before I went to work to just literally run through them alone.

But I had a great time last night and I think I really, really love these new maps!  I mean, I think they are better than the last map pack by like 10 times!
Favorite gametype for each map?  
- Multiflag on Avalanche
- Duals on Blackout (lame I know, but I love the SMG and never get to use it!)
- BR Start on Ghost Town

Those are my ideal gametypes for each map.  Oh, I love them!

I also put some videos of the games last night in my fileshare, check them out!

The film clips of the new maps are:
- Outta here - Chopper vs. Mongoose vs. cliff
- Martydom - In case of death, throw landmine at enemy.
- Decent game - Just a great game on Blackout and got a legit Running Riot!

So check them out and tell me if they are lame or super cool.  Thanks!

Gamers are interesting little people.

So I got on last night and just played some social with a buddy of mine. We had some stuff to talk about so we got into a private chat. But I did leave on proximity voice so I could hear opponents and team mates.

Oh, first, I'm not the biggest fan of private chat in most playlists but if it's in social, that's fine. I mean, we were just in it to have fun and not necessarily rank up although talking to teammates and warning them of tangos in the area but whatever.

Anyway, I got killed by some kid, he sounded like he was 12. As he ran by my dead body he said, "You fight like a b&*$# DoubleShot MIKE." So now it's personal. I went after that kid. After the game (we won) I checked and I noticed that I killed him the most with 5 kills and he had a -12 spread while mine was +10 or 11 I think, it was positive anyway so works for me!

I then sent him a voice message saying "nice negative 12" or something like that. Just to be funny. Well, it was actually a girl! Because she sent me a message back!

We had a few funny back and forth messages and and I would post them as recordings but I'd have to bleep out some language on her end. But it was all in good fun.

Well, that's all. Just wanted to say that I had still had a good time beating a girl. Not physically! In Halo! I'm all for womens rights but I don't believe they need drivers licenses because there is no road from the kitchen to the bedroom. I'm in trouble. Bye.

Bungie Job Listings

I just emailed my resume and cover letter for the position of an Associate Producer at Bungie. My wife hasn't even started her new job yet so we probably won't be able to move for at least a year or two but I wanted to let them know that I was interested and if they have any ideas as to what I could do to prepare for when we are ready, to give me some heads up.

How awesome would it be working for Bungie?! I don't know why more people aren't taking these jobs!

Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes, I can't wait to hear back from them, just to see what they say! Oh, I also added my Mister Chief made in forge creation in lieu of any demo reel or sample code.

What do you think?

Website Woes

You may have noticed that there hasn't been a new comic in quite ysome time.  I'm having some problems with the site mainly... I used iWeb out of ease but between iWeb and my FTP client, I can't put a new one up.

You know what?  Maybe I'll just post it here...  Or, there was this one FTP client, Yummy FTP that worked great for me, it just not free.  I'll check.  Or, anyone want to buy it for me?  Email me!  Thanks!

Anyway, thanks for holding in there!  Oh, and new maps on the 15th!  I can't wait!

The Latest New Map

Now this is the one I'm most excited about!

It's a throwback to one of my most favorite maps of all time, "Lockout." So it's aptly named "Blackout."

Take the jump for more details.
