    Merry December-Month-of-Holidays Everybody!

    Crynocent here wishing everyone a happy holidays with the December Update full of what's coming up for the rest of the year and what's happening next year.

    Oh, and if you killed the chicken without reading the book, "Why you shouldn't kill the chickens" first... you have no one to blame but yourself.

    I know what you've been doing at night! - Halo Tracker
    If you guys haven't seen this yet, there a site that tracks player stats from Halo Reach called Halo Tracker.
    A successor to Halo Charts, Halo Tracker gives you stats and medals beyond what Bungie gives you for both Halo 3 and Halo Reach. From ratios to weapons usage stats and even compares players from profile to profile. It also tracks credit and commendation status for those trying to get certain gear or goals.

    Here's my profile:
    It adheres to your stats via your gamertag and builds a profile based off of Just search for your gamertag and see how destructive you are.

    A very unique feature (one that applies to me) is that it has a K/D ratio and a K+A/D ratio displayed. Kills + Assists / Death ratio. Meaning those 1200+ assists that I get along with my 6000 kills makes me look badass against my deaths!

    Try it for yourself!

    Just a quick poll: HDTV or SDTV?
    Who plays on a HDTV and who plays on SDTVs?
