Up for grabs on Bungie.net or XBLM is the latest and greatest ViDoc yet, Cinema Paradiso. It shows off amazing Forge and Saved Film footage, and maybe a couple new armor permutations as well.

UPDATE: There is also a local copy in the movie database.

Part Three of Ferrex's trilogy on Forge is up at Bungie.net: Advanced Forge Editing. It covers how to edit objects in ways specific to creating certain goal-oriented gametypes, instead of just piles of fusion cores.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

What this article does talk about a lot is spawning: spawn points and spawn zones. If you've always been interested in how Halo chooses to spawn you where it does, this article is a treasure trove.

Tyson "Ferrex" Green dishes details on the Construct multiplayer level over at GameSpot. Thanks Louis Wu at HBO.

That note about "significant changes to the Banshee" around the time of the public beta sure is interesting...

This looks like a legitimate, if somewhat low quality, recording of Halo 3's opening cinematic, explaining the Chief's arrival on Earth. It also appears to confirm the contents of the game story summary posted elsewhere on the Internet.

Again-- if you don't want to be spoiled, don't view!

It's unconfirmed for now (see the "rumour" category) but Pro-G is reporting they have unofficial news that any GamerTags with Halo 3 play associated with them before Sept. 25 could end up with their Live account banned.

Heads up, for those tempted by stores breaking street date... even playing offline may result in getting booted once you hook back up.

-- Steve'll keep an eye out for something more reliable than rumour... and isn't certain whether he hopes it's true or it's false.

Okay, so the 360 isn't setting sales records in Japan, and the Japanese aren't really known worldwide for their love of the Halo franchise. Still, that didn't stop flagship Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu from ranking the game quite highly. One scorer gave it 10/10. The others? 9/10. Not bad. PlayTM has the story.

Tyson "Ferrex" Green has written up the first part of a three-part series on working in Forge, Halo 3's in-game editor. You'll apparently be able to call on a startling variety of objects in the editor; although you won't be able to change map geometry, you'll be able to add objects so large that they will, effectively, change the flow of the map.

And, of course, it's not just editing, it's also a play mode:

Russ Pitts at the escapist has never preordered a game-- until Halo 3, that is.

Gamesindustry.biz reports that Microsoft is expecting to sell out of the Legendary edition of Halo 3, in the US at least.

First of all, this page contains SPOILERS. Do NOT read it unless you want the ending of Halo 3 spoiled for you. This is not appearing on the front page unless you've selected to view spoilers, and I've obscured the text by making it white on a white background; you'll have to highlight it to read. That's as much protection as I can give you.

The second-to-last Bungie Weekly Update before Halo 3's official release date is well worth the read. The highlights, though, are you should stay out of random Bungie.net player profiles from now on, since you may end up seeing screenshots taken by people who've gotten copies early. Also, Miguel Chavez, invited to play through the game last week, says the ending is "perfect". You've heard it from Bungie's #1 fan.

When I was trying to get the IWHBYD skull I fell and I ened up in a garage and when I steped out I was walking on nothing! First I was walking on buildings and I got to the pelican checkpoint (Where if your trying to get the skull you jumpp down on the ramp to see the pelican fly away) there is a small space between the building your trying to jump to and the rail. Fall in the space and keep on walking.You should end up in a sort of garage.
