From Reddit user OkieCoder comes this image of an absolutely epic Halo cross-stitch depicting series hero Master Chief wielding a rocket launcher and looking like his normal badass self.
"5 months, 51,900 stitches, and ~792 glasses of wine later--Master Chief cross-stitch," wrote OkieCoder, whose wife made the creation for her 9-year-old brother. Bravo!
OkieCoder also confirmed that the Halo cross-stitch is 12 x 16, featuring 25 colors and with 16 stitches per inch.
The next Halo game to be released is Halo: Spartan Strike. It was due to launch in 2014, but issues with The Master Chief Collection led developer 343 Industries to delay it to early 2015. Looking beyond that, Microsoft will release Halo 5: Guardians this fall on Xbox One.

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm on Monday announced a mobile version of the upcoming fighting game Mortal Kombat X. A free-to-play game, Mortal Kombat X for mobile devices is described as a fighting game/card-battler hybrid that "delivers the next evolution in mobile fighting games."
The game, simply titled Mortal Kombat X, is developed by NetheRealm Studios, the same team behind the upcoming console and PC game. It will launch this April for iOS and Android devices alongside the core title, which arrives April 14.
“NetherRealm Studios has created a Mortal Kombat X mobile experience that allows more players than ever before to play this over-the-top fighting game through their ever-present smartphones, tablets, or other devices," NetherRealm boss Ed Boon said. “What's more, we've expanded the unique cross-connectivity feature that links the mobile and console versions of Mortal Kombat X, delivering unique rewards to all players for simply playing the mobile game."
Mortal Kombat X for mobile devices combines fighting, card-collection, multiplayer team combat, and "striking graphics," NetherRealm says. The game features a deep roster of characters (and their Fatalities), including Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Raiden, as well as newcomers. A full roster for the mobile game was not announced, nor was it said if the mobile version and console/PC editions will feature the same character lineup.
The mobile version of Mortal Kombat X also ties into the console/PC edition. Players who own the console/PC version can unlock content in the mobile game and vice versa. To do this, players will need to create a free WB Play account and complete various objectives. What form this bonus, unlockable content will take was not announced.
According to the Mortal Kombat X mobile teased trailer above, players will control the game through swipe-based inputs. It's unclear if the game will also support controllers as some other high-profile games have before. GameSpot has followed up with Warner Bros., asking for additional information.
Being a free-to-play game, it's expected that Mortal Kombat X will feature microtransactions in some form or another. However, Warner Bros. did not detail any such micro-payments Monday.
Microsoft is offering an Xbox One with Kinect, plus two Assassin's Creed games and a £20 store voucher, for just £300.
The bundle theoretically represents a saving of £100, with a standalone Kinect-bundled Xbox One going for £400 on the official Microsoft store page. Included in the package is a copy of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity, and a £20 store voucher.
A second deal is also available; a limited-edition White Xbox One (sans Kinect), along with Sunset Overdrive, for £280. That represents a saving of about £70.
Both deals follow similar offers from UK retailer Argos, which together appears to indicate a new season of discounts for the Xbox One. Microsoft has in the past lowered the price of its console for a limited time in order to stimulate sales.
Electronic Arts has confirmed details of Battlefield Hardline Premium, detailing that DLC membership program will give users two weeks' early access to four story-themed digital expansions, plus a series of bonuses, for a one-off charge of $50 (£40).
The four expansion packs will each feature their own story, and come with new multiplayer maps, modes, vehicles, and other in-game content. Synopses written by EA, below, offer an outline to the four expansions:
As previously suggested, Premium members will be able to access this DLC two weeks ahead of general release.
The Hardline Premium package also contains four additional in-game features (it is not clear if these will be sold separately). EA describes them below:
Other additions to Premium include 12 Gold Battlepacks, additional personalisation options including gun camos and ammo skins, access to double-XP, and priority position in server queues.
The Battlefield Hardline release date falls on March 17. More than seven million people played the game's beta in Early February, EA has said.
Launch platforms include PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Those who want to play the title on Xbox One can pre-load the game now.
Meanwhile, EA Access members on Xbox One can start playing Hardline on March 12, though this pre-release play period is limited to ten total game hours.

Konami has published a 48-hour countdown clock on its Metal Gear Solid 5 website, implying that the publisher is ready to make a significant announcement regarding the game.
For now, Konami has left no clear indication with regards to what the announcement could be. However, the Metal Gear Solid 5 release date remains a key detail yet to be disclosed, making it a frontrunner among other possibilities.
The Seiko countdown timer suggests that the announcement will be made on Wednesday, March 4, at 6am Pacific Time (2pm UK).
In September at the Tokyo Games Show, series creator Hideo Kojima set broad launch timings for MGSV, stating that the project was scheduled to ship at some stage in 2015.
A string of details have emerged since, such as the reveal of the game's multiplayer component in December.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been listed by GameSpot as one of the most anticipated titles of 2015.
GameStop on Monday announced that it is once again accepting PlayStation 2 trade-ins.
The retailer stopped accepting trade-ins for the system, the best-selling home console of all-time, back in June 2013. But now, GameStop is getting back into the business due to" high" demand.
"The video game console that had captured millions of hearts around the world continues to breathe life," GameStop said in a statement. "The Sony PlayStation 2 is known for its vast library of games and being the top selling video game console of all-time. GameStop knows that a demand for this iconic piece of video game history is still high and will once again buy back PS2 consoles."
As of March 1, all United States GameStop stores will offer $25 in store credit to shoppers who trade in a system with a power cable, AV/cable, and one controller. If you've lost these accessories over the years, GameStop will still pay you $20 for the console itself.
GameStop encourages anyone with specific questions about the new PS2 trade-in program to contact their local store.
God of War series veteran Todd Papy, who most recently worked on 2013's God of War: Ascension as its director, has joined Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games.
"Got a new job, excited to be part of a great team and working on Star Citizen," he wrote on Twitter. His new title at Cloud Imperium is design director.
Papy quit God of War developer Sony Santa Monica in November 2013. He joined Crysis developer Crytek a month later, where he was working on an unannounced game.
Star Citizen remains in ongoing development. Most recently, the game passed $74 million in total funding and revealed plans to honor Leonard Nimoy.
Star Citizen, the upcoming PC
space simulator "first-person universe" game, has reached yet another funding milestone. Less than two weeks after hitting $73 million, the game's crowfunding campaign has now crossed $74--and it's halfway to $75 million.
At press time, total Star Citizen funding stands at $74.49 million. A total of 767,718 people have backed the project to date. Star Citizen is already the most successful crowdfunded project, of any kind, in history.
All additional funds raised for Star Citizen will towards expanding the scope of the game.
If funding continues at this pace, the game could eventually raise $100 million as its creator Chris Roberts' hoped it would. Just last week, Roberts said, "I don't think we're close to the addressable market" in terms of how much room the game still had to grow.
For more on Star Citizen and Roberts himself, check out part one and part two of GameSpot's interview with the legendary designer.
