Jiralhanae. Why did it have to be Jiralhanae?

(...I think I'd rather have the Flood than them. But it's a tossup.)
Lekgolo. That's a Lekgolo (Hunter) that the Chief is staring down there. The Jiralhanae are the Brutes, which humanity doesn't really encounter until much later into the war.

For reference:

Unggoy = Grunts
Sanghelli = Elites
Huragok = Engineers
Kig'Yar = Jackals
San'Shyuum = Prophets

And also, I just watched the last part of Forward Unto Dawn, and fuck me sideways - THAT WAS AMAZING.

D'oh! Well that was a complete ****-up on my part.

I wish we could do the directly-insert-grenade-into-Hunter move in the game but pistol of doom will have to suffice.

Some would argue that Halo 4 is the biggest 360 release of the year.
Considering the running countdown they've been doing on Xbox live all week, they'd probably be right.

Not that that says a whole lot. It's been a kind of sad year for the 360. Don't think I've bought any 2012 releases for it since ME3.

That's about the only new release I've bought this year as well. Though I have purchased some older games.

Yeah, yeah...

At the very least, I trust the IGN review - not because it's IGN, but because of the person who wrote the review. Ryan McCaffrey was formerly a senior editor at Official Xbox Magazine and was one of the few remaining original staff members when he left a few months back to head up IGN's Xbox channel. I've been reading his articles and reviews, and listening to him on podcasts, for years now, and he wouldn't wrote something that wasn't his honest opinion.

I can't play it until December 25th.
I hope they put FUD onto dvd some day so I can watch it in one go.

Well my Halo 4 collectors edition guide arrived today. Ordered on the same day as the game.

Mine would have as well - unfortunately, I forgot about the fact that my CC number had changed between the preorder and today
