Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

Halo Forge mastermind xXHugabearXx forged a custom Grifball level and game mode to mirror the infamous Harry Potter game Quidditch. Though, in this case players use jetpacks instead of broomsticks, but the rules of the Halo 5 Quidditch game are very similar to the original.


-Players are allotted three points for throwing the ball through one of the rival team's hoops, and one point for killing a player on the opposing team with a gravity hammer.


-The first team to hit 15 points is victorious.


Unfortunately, there's no version of the Golden Snitch in this game; and there's no assigned positions, but a team could definitely assign positions on their own. Players eager to try out this game mode in Halo 5: Guardians simply need search for the new level "Quidditch Arena' and the game mode "Quidditch."
