"Fresh off last week's comprehensive Halo 3: ODST intelligence dump, we're dialing back the briefings once again to the tiny trickle of information you've become accustomed to. Those who clamored for the one-off update to end all updates might find that their once-full canteen could have been slowly supped during the long and bleak walk through a desert that now stretches to the blinding horizon. Fall is a long way off.
But do not despair. We're going to drop a few waypoints from time to time to guide you along your journey. Points of interest to hold you over as you place one foot after the other along your dogged march into uncharted lands. We'll use the shade of these small oases to provide you, our loyal, wayfaring travelers, with as much respite as we can as you trudge along with us, heading forward unto dawn.
Daybreak looms on the horizon."
