RUL Challenges – 5/12/14

Once again, it’s time for a new set of challenges. This time, we’re changing the format a bit – it’s time for a pop quiz! Before I explain how this is going to work, here are last time’s challenges, and the results:

Game Based

Forge a New Path…

Using Forge mode from Halo 3, Reach or 4, design a map (and a gametype if relevant), or create some form of art! The best art pieces will be showcased, and if any of the maps/gametypes are appropriate, they may (no promises!) be featured in a future game night!

Three Threes

Complete 3 sets of 3 achievements; each set from a different game.

Campaigner: Part 7

Complete the seventh mission from Halo 4′s campaign, “Composer”, on Normal difficulty, but with ALL skulls on. Co-op allowed, no player limit.

The entries for these challenges leave the leaderboard as follows:

Rank Name Challenges Completed
#1 Ye Olde Apple 10
#2 Liz_Fenix 9
#2 Splice 9
#2 Velociraptor 9
#3 iForge 3
#4 Tyzer 2
#4 Foundation Afro 2
#4 Demon 2


Now, for the next challenge to face… a small pop-quiz!

There are 2 different sections, both with a different point structure. There is a contact form at the bottom of the quiz for you to give your entries, please do not enter via a forum post. If there are any questions about this new format or the contact form then by all means feel free to PM me.

Section 1: Quickfire Round

Get all of these right, you get 3 points.

Get 3 of these right, you get 2 points.

Get 1 of these right, you get 1 point.

You will lose a point if at least 2 of these are wrong, though – so answer carefully! You can opt to simply not answer some of the questions… the decision is yours to make.

#1: The catchphrase “My Body is Ready”, originated from who, and how did it come about?

#2: The motion-control device for the Xbox consoles, “Kinect”, what originally codenamed what?

#3:  Who was the mastermind of the SPARTAN-III program, and where were the SPARTAN-III’s trained?

#4: What is the best selling video game of all time? (By units sold)

#5: Which mission, in which 2009 FPS game, was considered extremely controversial due to it’s violent nature?

Section 2: Educated Guesses, Anyone?

The tub pictured below contains a selection of delicious confectionery, the quantity of which is unknown to all but me. The task is simple: How many sweets are there in this tub?


The closest guess will receive 3 points, the second closest will receive 2 points, and the third closest 1 point.

And there you have it! I will aim to mix things up a bit in various ways, with new ideas like this, so be sure to let me know what you think of any new formats I may present for the challenges – feedback is important!

Good luck, everyone!
