Life through the eyes of the Grifball in Halo 4. An awesome Grifball poem written by the even more awesome SquirrelBurrito.

Grifball's Lament

Chaos Courts: Alpha

A powerful AI hacked our servers last night and some interesting information was left behind in the forums about the NGA's SL13 Pro map.

How to donate to the Boston Strong Fundraiser

How to donate to our cause on HopeMob: (Please read all of this before donating!)

(note: You can skip step 1 if you wish to donate anonymously, however you cannot comment on the donation page- which will become important for later).

1) Head over to, and create an account on the site. Give yourself a username and maybe a picture and a small bio (not required)

2) Visit our donation page on Here is a direct link to our special page:

Donate Now!

3) There is a button on the right side of our story (feel free to read that). Click it.

4) You will be taken to a page asking how much you would like to donate. Please note, HopeMob has an optional 15% site operations donation on by default. Feel free to contribute to that, but if you only wish to fund our project, you must disable that now, by clicking the link circled in this image.

You will then be able to choose any amount you would like to give to HopeMob to continue running fee-free, but it will lessen the amount of your donation to our cause. Just choose the amount (it is fine to choose zero) from this dropdown box.

5) Enter your payment information, then confirm all details are correct. It's that easy!

6) If you are donating for a prize entry in our sponsorship event, you will need to make a comment on the article with your gamertag, or the gamertag you are sponsoring (feel free to add any personal notes here as well). To do that, you will need to make a free account on HopeMob, as outlined in step 1.

And that's it! If you have any questions, feel free to ask us on twitter (@squirrelburrito, @grifballnet, @mastersundown) or by e-mail (, or

Saturday 9pm ET: NGA Gamertag Night

NGA Gamertag Night 2 - Free XBox Live Gold Weekend

It's baaaaaaaaaack! This weekend is a Free XBox Live Gold Weekend (thanks BioShock Infinite!), and since we had so much fun last time, we're going to be running an NGA Gamertag Night starting Saturday at 9pm ET, once again going strong until, well, until we're not. We'll play whatever the community wants, with preference given to matchmaking playlists so we can show off. If you'd like to volunteer to be a party leader, leave a note in the event thread. Here's the fine print:

To participate, you must register an XBL account with the format NGA (space) whatever you want, for example: NGA Shadow. You're free to brag about your incredible tag, and you're also free to treat the night like a masquerade ball and hide behind your mask. XBL should take care of the most offensive choices for tags; don't go and pick a name directly insulting to another member of the community, or your participation may be denied. If you joined us last time, you're free to use the same account again if you'd like. If you need help making a new account, please let Squirrel or Shadow know and we'll make it happen.

Once you've registered your tag, send a FR or message to our existing group tag, NGA Grifball. That's where you'll get your party invites from. To make things interesting, if we get 16 or more unique players to participate with gamertags in the correct format, we'll set up a poll to vote for the best one, and reward the winner with a little MSP prize.

As a bonus, Microsoft will be giving away an exclusive Halo 4 avatar code to the first 600,000 people to play Halo 4 for one hour during this promotion, but only if your profile indicates you are 18 or older.  There are other bonuses in Forza Horizon and Borderlands 2, and a 30-day trial offer from Netflix too (see here for details).

Even finer print: Xbox Live Free Gold Weekend lasts from 3/8 through 3/10*. You should be able to register and use more than one account during this promotion, so if you've wanted to setup and pre-rank-up a second gamertag for one of the other... purely legitimate reasons, yes, that's it... now's your chance to do that and have a little fun with all of our NGA friends this Saturday night!

* March 8, 12:01 GMT (5:01am ET) and conclude on March 10, 23:59 GMT (4:59am ET).  You may have to change your Locale to Great Britain under your console settings in order to participate.
