Halo 2: Quarantine Zone

What’s up Guys!

Welcome to a belated Weekly Update!

This week kicked of with the continuation of Halo 2 with Sacred Icon, where the Arbiter is tasked with retrieving the Index, the key to firing the Halo ring. To get to it, he must first pass through the Sentinel Wall, a safeguard for the Library, which houses the index. However it is more than just Sentinels he must face as the Flood have infested the area. with the help of a few Grunts and Jackals he finds along the way the Arbiter must journey to the other side of the wall.

After that Operation: Coastline: Episode 3: Interrogation after over a months work, was finally released. in this episode, Hardy and McCowan bring back the Elite to Outpost C-9 for questioning, but when they try for days and get nothing they ask Col. Shore if he can be transferred to a high security facility, which is approved. The two then get the Elite and leave for the facility, codename; Stand Off. Meanwhile in New Mombasa two ODST’s encounter a group of Covenant and they go head to head before realising they need to leave the city before it becomes overrun. On the Aegis Fate Col. Shore meets with Major Ortega from ONI and discuss the the Covenants plans with New Mombasa.

Towards the later half of the week, VPMaps: Episode 20 was out and looked at the small, multi-tiered map, Atrium.The map features 3 tiers each with their own power weapon in the centre and platforms around the edges and leading into the middle.

Also, Halo 3: ODST continued with the level Uplift Reserve. After Rookie finds Dares helmet, he goes in search for more clues about his squads whereabouts, He comes across and UAV Drone’s camera which causes a flashback of what happened to Dutch when he landed. 30 mins after drop Dutch lands in New Mombasa’s nature reserve which is now filled with Covenant. After grouping up with some marines, he gets new orders to go through the reserve and try to clear of Covenant and help marines, before trying to secure the former landing site of Regrets carrier, But before he can, Orbital Elevator collapses and forces Dutch to exit the reserve back into the city.

As the week drew to a close, Minecraft popped into frame and Minecraft: The Guide to Survival: Episode 3 was released where I showed you how to get materials by mining and craft better tools from Iron and made sheers to get wool. I also explored my surroundings a bit.

So, on to next week.

At the start of the week Halo 2 with continue with the level Quarantine Zone, where Arbiter meets up with his fellow elites and embarks on a journey of vehicular combat with the Flood through to the Library’s entrance. Once there, he then enters a gondola with a group of elites and a phantom for support, which he rides to the Library itself before learing a terrible truth. After that VPMaps: Episode 21 will be out and will look at another map feature. Near the end of the week ODST’s Campaign will continue with Kizingo Boulevard, where Mickey must group up with some marines and, using a Scorpion tank, blast through Covenant armour and help the marines before running into a friendly face. Minecraft: The Guide to Survival Episode 3 will also be out at the end of the week.

As for Operation: Coastline, I am continuing with it and will have an update for you soon.

So that’s all for this week!

Halo 2: Sacred Icon

What’s up, guys!

Welcome to another look at past events and ones to come!

This week started, as usual, with the continuation of Halo 2, in the form of the level Regret. Starting from where Delta Halo left off, Master Chief has found where the Prophet of Regret is and, with the help of some Marines and extra weapons, will go there. Using a series of gondolas and underwater elevators, he will mop up any Covenant in his way and put the Prophet to justice.

Towards the end of the week, VPMaps Episode 19 was released and focused on the very small, multi-layered map, Edifice. The map was a quick build, but I was satisfied with the result and even though it was so small I felt that the multiple rooms and levels compensated for the overall size.

After that, I begun a new campaign playthrough of Halo 3: ODSTs campaign. Halo 3: ODST starts just after the level Metropolis in Halo 2 and is from the perspective of a squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers who drop into the city of New Mombasa to try and stop the Covenant, but everything changes when the Prophet of Regret performs a slipspace jump nearly destroying the city and scattering the squad. Now one member of the squad, the Rookie, must look for clue to find his squads whereabouts and see the other squad members journeys from their point of view. This week I uploaded the first part of the campaign. the first bit was the introductory level, Prepare to Drop, where  we meet the Rookie and the ODST squad get ready to drop down into the city before it all goes wrong. After that, I also uploaded the first mission, Tayari Plaza, where the Rookie wakes up 6 hours after the drop and goes in search for his squad, after coming across Veronica Dares helmet we see a flashback and take control of Gunnery Sergeant Buck. He crashes in his pod immediately after drop and goes to find Dare who has crashed nearby. However the Covenant are hot on their tails and Buck must push through to get to Dare before the Covenant do.

Finally, I uploaded the first episode of my new Minecraft series, The Guide to Survival, where I show new and experienced players alike how I survive the world of Minecraft and show the ropes to beginners. In the first episode I show you how to survive you first night and how to craft, mine and cook food among other basic things.

On to next week!

At the beginning of next week I will continue with Halo 2’s campaign with the level, Sacred Icon, where the Arbiter must retrieve the Index from Installation 05’s Library  and must cross the Sentinel wall and surrounding area before he can get inside, After that VPMaps Episode 20 will be out looking at another competitive map. Then, towards the end of the week, Halo 3: ODST will continue with the 2nd level, where the Rookies clue flashes us back to Dutch, who has landed in the Uplift Reserve, a wildlife park which is filled with Covenant. After that, The Guide to Survival episode  will be out where I show more on how I survive in Minecraft.

Talking about next week has brought me onto another subject, which is that of Operation: Coastline. I am pleased to say that I finished production of episode 3 and it will be out Tuesday. So look out on my channel then and check out episode 1 and 2 here.

So that’s all for this week!
