Stuntmutt's ridiculously long Suffer This LAN event writeup from a few days ago is over in the HBO forum, where such things rightfully belong. If I can find a British slang translator I'll link it here, too.

[image:9674 align=left hspace=5 vspace=5 border=0] First Major Nelson will be attending, now the Frag Dolls will be at this year's Penny Arcade Expo-- and looking to add a new member, according to eToyChest.

topic: 

Eric Trautmann's latest (lengthy) blog update is a hoot to read and is even on-topic, as his new neighbors disclose his location to the neighborhood Halo fans.

game: 

Stosh has written at Bungie.net that Rooster Teeth will be continuing their Red vs Blue machinima series, with season 4 set to debut on August 29, 2005. (I can't find confirmation of this on the RvB website as stosh seems to indicate, but perhaps I'm not looking in the right place--Ed.)

Bungie Sightings has a new post up today on their observed progress of Wideload's upcoming Halo engine game, Stubbs the Zombie, as well as an offer of $5 to the person who can guess their answer to this question:

"Stubbs the Zombie is based on a previous Bungie engine. In the history of Bungie (and now Wideload) technical sequels, what sets this game apart from past attempts?"

The newest Halo Babies cartoon focuses on an alternative use (or, more accurately, one might just say a use--Ed.) for Halo 2's shotgun. Thanks mrsmiley.

HBO has a couple of audio-related Halo updates today; Captain Spark has added to the Halo 2 Dialogue Databank. This newest collection is Sergeant Stacker comments collected while using the hard-to-get IWHBYD skull. They're available for download from Spark's newly redesigned website.

Cullen in the #hbo channel of irc.bungie.org pointed out the Halo 2 references in the latest VG Cats comic; the theme was hidden sexual content. (Before you ask, no, you cannot have hot coffee with Cortana--Ed.)

game: 

Ok, shoot us for not knowing this, but there are apparently two Angry Zen Masters-- Mat "MSN" Noguchi over at Bungie, and his brother Jamie "jamihn" Noguchi, who since late March of this year has been doing a webcomic called (appropriately enough) Angry Zen Master, which occasionally features both himself and his brother, Mat.

topic: 

The comic is becoming a little more like Halo Teens as Cortana gets some unwanted attention at E3.

game: 

At Penny Arcade, Gabe and Tycho don't seem to think much of MTV in general or the Xbox 360 Special in specific. They do highly recommend the tech-specific, geek-laden five minute video from OurColony.net, instead. That's a short summary; check Penny Arcade for the more humorous, more verbose version.
