With the release of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo Waypoint will be seeing a major overhaul in terms of its web interface and the Windows Phone version's usability and new features. The web version will see fixes to the layout of the site, how content is pushed up by the community and the forums getting fixed from community feedback. One new major feature is the ability to set "custom challenges" for any mode that you and your friends can gain Halo: Reach credits for achieving.
Here's where it gets awesome. In conjunction with the Windows Phone Mango update, Halo Waypoint's Windows Phone version will also be getting the same treatment as the web version except for one major difference. By some voodoo magic it will be able to streamline information from your console and will be able to display a live top-down feed of where each of your teammates are and if they are in danger or already dead. It will be called the "Advanced Tactical Assault System," ATLAS for short, and will be available for all Halo: Reach maps and the new Anniversary maps as well.
Speaking of the new Halo Anniversary maps, 343 sent over some screenshots of the newly announced High Noon map, which is a remake of arguably one of the best Halo: CE maps ever, Hang 'em High. You can check those out in the gallery below and while you're at it you can check out another video of the new big update coming to the Halo Waypoint website.

Cosmonstropolis I want that Fallout nuke so bad, but I already own all the games. TheAngriestCarp I'm looking for games where trade is a viable way to progress. Kinda like how you can essentially create your own caravan business in the Mount and Blade games. Any suggestions?ChrisHannard Surprised how easy it was to stream PS4 gameplay to Twitch, and by how many times I said 'no' or 'nope' playing Zombi - [url]http://www.twitch.tv/chrishannard/v/20046226[/url]. Shame the actual stream stopped - down to Twitch, the PS4 or connection?RadicalYoseph The issue with Mike's article isn't that he doesn't like SMB. His tone makes it feel like his opinion is presented as fact, and the article goes way off track from the title.SeymourDuncan17 The last bit made me laugh for some reason.

Why are people so accepting of my unpopular opinions, but not his?SeymourDuncan17 I'm still watching this over and over. Dude is tremendously talented, to say the least. Just wait until the solo and breakdown. [youtube]https://youtu.be/vgfLFLRXSdI[/youtube]TheAngriestCarp Nice. Destructoid articles no longer scroll on my tablet or phone. Who should I email about this?LinkSlayer64 Anybody like Rhythm games? I found a really cool one on itch.io, http://fizzd.itch.io/rhythm-doctor. I likes it, I likes it a lot!

Beat every dark world section without dying? Ha, okay.Pixie The Fairy Attention Craigslist users: No one wants your ps2 sports games no matter how much you repost them/drop the price, unless it's NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta or SSX3. The rest are better used as drink coasters.Dr Mel If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.Paul S What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.CeeDotGreen Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.TheAngriestCarp Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.
