    Slashdot article + no comments in 1 hour = nobody has any clue as to what these movie awards are. Heck, I even had time to RTFA!

    Can I vote for the intro for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War? Most compelling short I've seen in 2004.

    • Someone used Halo to make animated shorts. Check these [] out. Scroll down to the episodes, they're pretty damn funny.
    • I can't find any link to the 2003 results.

      Don't know. May be I didn't look hard enough.

      Even if it was 1/2 as interesting as Warhog jump, I'd download them all. Alas, I can't find anything aside from rants.

  • My general lack of interest in new Halo videos comes from the fact that original material is hard to come by. Red vs Blue was great when it came out, but I really have no desire to see half a dozen other series done the same way. In fact, I lost interest in Red vs Blue once the novelty wore off.
    Every so often, something new does come by that catches my interest, but it's pretty rare now. The most recent Halo video that I enjoyed and actually saved to my hard disk was Legend 2. []
