According to Major Nelson's blog, Halo 3 and COD4 have done the top ten topsy-turvy trick again. Call of Duty 4 is on top (for the moment) and Halo 3 is playing second fiddle.

It's the NFL's Bengals against Bungie this week in the first great sporting event of the New Year.

Sixteen player carnage in ranked form has arrived in Halo 3. Log in to matchmaking and hop into the Ranked Big Team Battle playlist to take it for a spin.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

SketchFactor has put up a preview of this year's Winter Bungie Pentathlon, detailing some of the games to be played (Halo 3 and Pictionary) as well as, uncharacteristically, a list of staffers broken down into the four teams: Grizzled Ancients, Old Skool, Middle School, and Newbies. This year, the studio is so big that Marty O'Donnell is finally a Grizzled Ancient.

The kind and well-behaved folks from Clantacular met us on the Internet for a "friendly." Did we lose again?

Frag The Cullen forwarded to me a film clip made by Jihaku of a Team Slayer game played a few days ago. In that game, player Geo Stelar seems to have an infinite bag of bubble shields. No matter how many times he deploys it, he always has another, a fact he uses to his advantage in this film. There's also a thread about the alleged exploit at Bungie.net.

Once again more news has transpired in 24 hours than I'm able to handle with the individual loving care that each unique-as-in-snowflake bit of news fully deserves to be treated. So sue me.

Here's what happened:

Bungie cheated HBO out of a Humpday win. Makes you wish there was some large company comprised of adults watching over these boys Luke Smith while at play.

Those of us steeped in Halo 3 and Bungie Breakaway news might be forgiven momentarily for forgetting that online communities for Bungie's Mac and PC RTS games, Myth, are still hanging in there a decade after the game was released.

Unfortunately one of them, PlayMyth, has now shut down. Server administrator Blades, apparently posting as elusivemind, says he no longer has the time or energy to keep up with it.

Shishka saved Bungie from humiliating defeat in the first post-launch Halo 3 Humpday, as the boys from Kirkland waded into Social Slayer and got socially slayed.

Check Bungie.net for the full writeup as well as links to the Saved Films; this is the first time we'll be able not just to read about the humpday, or pore over the statistics, but actually see the matches themselves. No more lying embellishment!

Version 1 of MLG's official gametypes and settings for Halo 3 are now available for download and playing on your very own Xbox 360. No word yet on whether or not every single weapon has been replaced by a Battle Rifle, or if Luke Smith has had an orgasm yet.

UPDATE: Yes, the primary weapon for all gametypes is the Battle Rifle. Way to be consistent, guys. Still no update on that other thing.
