I kind of understand the theory of how they are doing that. A buddy of mine can do it a slightly differant way but has only been able to cross boards and not really fly to higher positions.

Anyone still playing on LIVE from here?

oh yeah... I think my handle is 'lrnasd90'.... if I remember correctly.
Nick, I agree a lot of them are geared for larger number of people but as popular are Halo 1 was through Gamespy, I think that was part of the idea. We'll see what new boards come out in Halo 2.5 later this year. Going to be the next part with new levels and more LIVE boards as well as the end of the story line of the campain play. Halo 3 is slated for next Xmas to take a bite out of Playstation3's release.

I will add you to my list, my handle is "chris von c". (Note the spaces)

Hey Chris.


I totally agree. I'm sorry to say that I haven't been on LIVE yet, I was playing Half-Life 2 for a while but then we went to Greece, then I started tiling my bathrooms, now I'm putting wood floors in, along with looking at an engagement ring for my other half, and now the D90 is in the shop. FIRST TIME I might add...lol. It was nothing big, just a coil wire that broke off, so I'm having them do a couple of other 'tings that I just don't have any freaking time to do. (speedo/e-brake tightening).

I will try to get on at some point... God knows I miss it.

Oh well. Have fun !

The new release date for Halo 3 is November 1, 2007.

Of course, it will probably be pushed way back. Bungie.net has more info, if anyone's interested.

Another year??? WTF? I guess I'll just have to pick up 'Gears of War' for now.

I believe this Friday is when the new PS3 is being released.

I've been playing Gears of War. Holy shit. I'm so die hard Halo that it's hard for me to get into other shooters, but man this game rocks so far. I've never seen something that looks so good, and I'm not even seeing in High Def. Ridiculous.

I definitely feel safe recommending Gears of War, just for the campaign. I haven't fooled around with the multiplayer stuff yet. Though, I have done the online multiplayer campaign with a buddy of mine -- that's a great new feature.

Man I was about to sell my 360 since I haven't even hooked it up since buying it. Now I think I have to check this game out, and I have the hi-def tv.

When I went to Best Buy lastnight to pick up Gears of War, there were 7 tents lined up along the front side next to the entrance. The weather has been crappy and the PS3 isn't even available until Friday. That's some die-hard commitment for a $600 gaming console. Makes me wonder what those people (not sure if there were kids or what) do for a living, that they could take off 3 days from work, to sit in some miserable weather waiting for a gaming unit that already has issues and a video card that's no longer the latest and greatest.

Right now, the only thing/person I'd do that for is Jessica Alba. Who am I kidding, I'd do just about anything for her!

I played some more Gears of War last night (til about 4:00 a.m., lol). It's a great game -- it keeps getting more and more interesting, and they do a good job of switching things up so that play doesn't get monotonous.

I messed around with the online multiplayer. For someone who is used to Halo, this is definitely different. Shorter games, not as easy to hook up with a buddy and find some games. But it's interesting nonetheless.

I read an article yesterday talking about how the PS3 is going to suffer from waiting to use the Blueray (or whatever) technology for the HD-DVD. It caused significant delays, and they won't have many units to ship before this christmas. So, 360 will have a two holiday headstart on them. 360 will soon be offering a HD-DVD drive as well -- should be interesting how the market share battle between these two turn out.

For me the decision was easy -- Halo 3 and 360.

Chris, don't sell it now! The games are just starting to take advantage of the new system.

With the Nintendo Wii hot on the PS3 tail and at an affordable price, the PS3 is going to suffer...another mini-disk fiasco!?!?!...maybe. They might be the king of consoles, but the arragonce of price and the issues they are having with these new systems already may set them back initially.

I guess time will tell...

I think the prices are so high on these new consoles because the manufacturers are trying to place them in the market not only as gaming consoles, but also home entertainment items. Xbox 360 can do all sorts of cool wireless shit with your home network, if you have the right operating system. You can wirelessly connect to any home computer and listen to music through your home entertainment system, or watch movies and video, look at pictures, etc.

I just don't know if that will ever catch on, at least enough to justify the higher prices.

I'm a gaming junkie, though, so while the price stings a little bit, I have no choice. Small price to pay for stress relief...
