Halo: Forward Unto Dawn

Halo 4 has been out nearly two months but you may not be aware of this awesome web series, which follows cadets through their training at the cusp of the war with humanity - with all their training based around fighting human insurrectionists these young trainees have little hope of battling the new foe unless humanity has some sort of secret weapon up their sleeves...

The whole series is on Halo Waypoint and Machinima and uploaded here courtesy of YouTube

Enjoy the action, there will be some Halo posting in the new year - once I've caught up on Mass Effect!!

Mass Effect 3: Lessus and Arrae

Yes more Mass Effect 3, I'm covering two of the Priority missions Shepard undertakes - ones I dub the 'catch up with old friends missions'!

Apologies - a bit of an error in the vid - the name of the planet is Gellix, Arrae is the system it's in.

As usual I'll update the War Assets for these missions

The following are War Assets gained by exploring Asari Space

Asari Cruiser Nefrane - Awesome to see these sleek Asari ships join the fight, any new ship type is a massive bonus in my book!

Asari Cruiser Cybaen

Asari Research Ships - A group of researchers working in isolation on their ships agree to help build the crucible

Asari Engineers - This group volunteered to ensure the Crucible is structurally sound.

The following are War Assets gained by destroying the monastery on Lessus

Samara - The powerful Justicar is dispatched to Asari colonies under siege

Asari Commandos - Lethal and biotic-capable commandos able to complete any high-risk mission.

The following are War Assets gained on Gellix

Ex-Cerberus Scientists - The group of refugees have a secure home and a purpose on the Crucible project

Jacob Taylor - Jacob is assigned to security for the Crucible scientists whgile sometimes completing special assignments for Hackett

Dr Brynn Cole - The leader of the team redirects her efforts to constructing the Crucible

Dr Gavin Archer - His expertise on AI is assisting the Crucible weapon effort.
