Brothers to the end
Remember, Remember (part 2)
Remember Remember the 9th of November
The Covenant Treason and Plot
I know of no reason why the Covenant Treason
Should ever be forgot
But what of the Eli’e
I know his name was Thel ‘Vadam
and Arbiter was he
In 2552 with blades of blue
The prophets, they would see
Just what he could do
What started out
as an honour so high
Ended by watching
his brothers die, die, die
With vengeance he would fight
for all Sanghelli kind
after a brief meeting
with the flood’s Gravemind
A civil war he would lead
While the covenant divides
With Hunters Unggoy and Sanghelli
All Standing by his side
A Demon in his camp
Gravemind in their vision
The ark’s destruction
was a simple decision
The destruction of the ring
caused one to reminisce
but at the end of this track
was a jump they could not miss
The ship was split
The flood, ablaze
But what of the demon
Left floating in the craze
The memorial service began
the desert winds were breezy
for the death of this demon
Thel thought: “Were it so easy.”

Thank you Bungie, Microsoft, 343 Industries, for giving us all the wonder that is Halo 🙂
Halo day approaches.
Are you ready?! Sadly I may not be able to celebrate like I usually do.
So I leave it up to all of you.Make this november 9th special by destroying as many covenant as possible.
I will be making another post shortly after midnight, with a little surprise. I hope you all enjoy it 🙂
1 person from each 2 person team must be playing at all times.
1 5 minute break allowed per 30 minutes in order to protect health/ sanity.
The breaks can be saved up for one 20 minute break.
We will break for food occasionally, above rules still apply.
HALO WILL HAPPEN
COVENANT WILL DIE
CHILDREN WILL BE HELPED
SOMEONE WILL GET TEAM KILLED
Tune in tomorrow @ 8am to begin the shenanigans
Team Red and Blue
Halo Reach (4 player)
Halo 1 (2 teams of 2)
First team to complete Halo 1 plays Halo 2
Second Team plays Halo ODST
Both Teams meet back up for 4 player Halo 3
I interrupt the (ir)regularly scheduled shenanigans to invite you to help me with a charitable cause. I have signed up for Extra Life.
Here’s a quote from their site ( http://www.hospitalshelpkids.org/ExtraLife/default.aspx ).
Welcome to Extra Life, an annual 24-hour video game marathon that raises money to help heal sick kids at your local children’s hospital. It’s never been this much fun to do this much good.
This year’s event begins at 8:00am in your local time zone on October 16th, 2010. Each of our participants is currently raising money by recruiting at least 4 sponsors to give $1.00 for each hour of the marathon (that’s $24.00 per sponsor).
I have signed up for a lofty goal of $1,170.00 for Boston’s Children Hospital :). A few friends will be joining myself and we will be marathon Halo for 24 hours. The current plan is a rush through on coop Normal through Halo Reach -> Halo 1 -> Halo 2 -> Halo 3. Reach and 3 will be 4 player coop and 1,2 will be 2 sets of 2 player coop. Our team will webcast the event and any ensuing shenanigans because I am sure Halo 3 will be a BSAngel surprise (Read as: team killing heaven) due to the exhaustion and caffeine taking over :P. I hope you will take your time, and open your wallets 😉 to a good cause.
If you want to see how the team is doing check this page and feel free to donate to the others! 🙂

Thanks for your time,
News item 1:
Â Halo Reach Beta starts next monday, but the Friends and Family Beta Starts THIS WEEKEND, if you haven’t noticed from the insane amoutn of twitter traffic.
News Item 2:
Bungie and Activision enter into potentially Faustian Deal.Â The Deal links the two for the next ten years, while this isn’t necessarily good/bad news, it is … interesting. We all know Halo is owned by Microsoft. That is not an issue. What is an issue are the shenanigans that happened with Infinity ward. Here’s hoping that Activision doesn’t use their sole bungie publisher power for evil. NOTE: Helping Bungie towards world domination does not constitute as evil.Â Gamepro has an article showing some reactions to this news: http://www.gamepro.com/article/news/215016/tell-us-how-you-really-feel-activision-bungie/Â (featuring a tweet from yours truly:) )
News Item 3:
OMG HALO REACH…
News Item 4:
Â Lastly I want to leave you with some people I am jealous of and must say are going in my book as micro heroes: http://gizmodo.com/5526334/halo-2-superfans-refuse-to-let-the-dream-die
Anyone who can keep Halo 2 online for that long with an original XBOX deserves Credit. I SALUTE YOU!
This is a multiupdate frankly because I enjoyed the headline for it :P.
Halo 2 it was sad to see you go, but it was pure epic to see some people hold out for days due to maintaining connection to Bungie’s servers. You showed them you would not give up so easily. They said shut it down and you (to paraphrase the arbiter) responded with “Were it so easy…”. I was able to fit in a solid 9 hours and end at about 4 E.S.T., and only a 20 minute break. 🙂 One downside:Â X != reload especially not in Halo 3 Team swat while staring down the barrel of a BR
Halo Reach: I’m not sure if I could be more excited about Halo Reach. The new game types seem AWESOME (invasion 🙂 ). The armor enhancements intriguing, and special editions DO WANT. 😀
Halo 3: What else is there to say. No speculations since it is the current, no breaking news since it seems to be staying for a while. So what else can I say other than…..
Have fun hiding from the living dead this Double exp 🙂
We are close to saying good bye to one of our closest friends, Halo 2. Thankfully There will be a blowout! (link: http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=41080008 ) Will you be there to say good bye to one of our favorite games? Will you be there to share with all of the community in the last Hurrah?!
I will see you there (shoot me an invite or a friend Request if you like just mention this site so I know why you are adding me:) )
Exactly how I remember it 😛
We had some good times in such a great place
fighting for all of humanity through the depths of space.
We met with Friends, We met with foes
We fought on Live toes to toes.
Good bye Halo2 on Live you will be missed. Here’s hoping someone sets up a way to continue the halo 2 online fight another way:)
Now who wants to get some Halo2 Lan going soon? 😉
Remember Remember the 9th of November
The Covenant Treason and Plot
I know of no reason why the Covenant treason
Should ever be Forgot
But what of the man?
I know his name was John, Spartan-117
He was the Master Chief
And in 2552
He would show all the covenant
What this Demon could do
While he speckled that ring
with purple and blue
The ring was a wreck,
The armada destroyed.
Leaving a spark of guilt,
He took his Blue lady and away they flew
Many months before Gravemind
Claimed that he knew, he KNEW!
But in the end, the war was won
with lost daughters
And many a lost son
but one who was not lost
but simply adrift
with a partner who spoke
with a tone as soft as a kiss
They floated on by that large blue disc
While we all wondered WTF IS THIS
I hope you all have a Happy, Frag Filled, Halo Day
Sincerely Everyoneâ€™s Second Favorite Spartan,
~SPOSpartan104 â€“ Fred
