Download | Shownotes
For the last two months, Waypoint has been giving us updates in their weekly bulletins on the weapon tuning undergoing for Halo 4, hoping to restore some balance to the weapons in the Halo sandbox. Thanks to the efforts of the community and the feedback 343i has received through their forums, we now have the final set of changes of the weapon tuning. Granted, the actual numbers are not supplied for all the changes, but having a final picture gives us a good picture of what’s to come in the next few days. Waypoint is also holding a community playdate on Monday when the update drops. Enjoy

Podtacular 362: Tuning 4ork

Download | Shownotes
Before diving into this week’s bulletin, CruelLEGACEY tells us about Playtime Season 4 premiering on Halo Waypoint on Monday, April 22nd. Playtime is a light-hearted, comedic Halo Machinima series started by our good friend and has grown considerably since its inception. Back on bulletin news, AGL Nashville happened this last weekend with the crowned champions of Pulse eSports. This sparked a discussion among the hosts on the attractiveness of competitive to the greater community, leading also into the discussion of Halo’s longevity. They take up a good chunk of the show, but great points are brought up. Some insights into the weapon tuning are given along with next week’s matchmaking update. Enjoy

This week, Halo is at PAX, are you? If so, you’ll get some big information regarding the next map pack and title update. If not, there’s some tid bits, 343 has given in this week’s Halo Bulletin. Despite their busy schedule, they released a lot of information regarding their PAX schedule, matchmaking updates and a few items we’ll be seeing in the next title update. There are lots of goodies to sort through and they will go more in depth on the future of Halo multiplayer and the next title update on their panel today. If you’re not here to see it, the panel will likely be uploaded to YouTube not long after. No question of the week since I’m co-hostless for this show, but we got a huge response for last weeks.
