1Up has a preview of Halo: Waypoint, a consolidated Xbox Live function that tracks all Halo-related gamer achievements, awards, medals, etc. For folks who like the Bungie ego-boo (and I do), this is pretty spiffy. IW, Treyarch, this is the way it's done. Click here!

Co-Optimus also has an article up on Halo: Waypoint. Click here!

GiantBomb has the scoobies on Halo: Waypoint. Click here!

On the Infinity Ward front, here's a 1Up editor Tina Sanchez's photo blog of her visit to the Infinity Ward den of iniquity. I'm assuming it was before the announcement of the PC player cornholing, since there are no mobs with torches and pitchforks trying to break into the building. Click here!

Since we're checking out real estate, here's a photo tour of Blizzard's digs from Destructoid. Click here!

Listening to last night's BASHandSlash livecast, it sounded like the hardcore PC modders are feeling like this --------->
And I can't really blame them. There wasn't any real warning. Nothing much leaked out about the way things were being changed on the PC end of Modern Warfare 2. In fact, there had been at least one tweet from Fourzerotwo, fairly early on, that PC would be as it always had been... Yikes.
