Halo 2

Just out of curiousity how many of you waited in line at midnight to either buy a copy of Halo 2 for your own enjoyment or waited in line with someone under 17 to buy a copy.

As I waited in line with my 14 year Brother-in-Law I couldn't believe my eyes when over 300 people showed up at the game store to buy a video gamea t MIDNIGHT. Nothing like a bunch of amped up 18-22 years drinking cases of Mountain Dew and eating In-n-Out hamburgers at midnight talking about how killer the new weapons will be to make you realize that you are all grown up now.

MY brother waited (he's 22 I'm 25), then when he got home at 12:45 we played until 3 am when he said he needs to go to bed to get up at 9 am, I said yeah I nned to be up at 6:30, I really thought about pulling an all nighter and just not sleeping.

If you haven't played either Halo 1 or 2 then you are missing out, the best part is playing multi player against you friends. I have friends in their 40s that love it! And if you are like us we get 4 TVs 4 Xboxes and a Hub and 16 of us play all at once for 5 or 6 hours. Even if you suck at video games it is a BLAST! Almost as good as wheeling the 90!

My room mate did the same thing. Said there were like 200 or more people waiting for it. Almost as bad as it was to go see the new star wars movies at midnight when they were first showed. I was always a fan of Golden Eye on N64. guess i never upgraded.

Can't wait until I get out of here today.

A few highlights, the warthog has a handbrake so you can power slide, dual machine guns, you can now pick up the sword that the super powerful elite guy carries, but he is very tuff. Elite pull you out of the wart hog, but you can pull them out of the ghosts. The warthog gets busted up looking and catches fire but it just keeps going (I relate it to a Rover). Your shield is stronger and comes back faster. You can jump higher. All this and we only got into the second level!

I just got an email from Amazon (.co.uk) saying the UK release is now the 11th. Sucks.

Just got back from a couple hours of play... Absolutely incredible, I think my Halo1 skills will carry on (which were immense) haha...


Mike, If I'm ever at my Uncle's place on Mascoma Lake in NH, we'll have to get together so I can 'spank' you at H2.

(I had to... ) ............................j/k

Really though, the game rules. We're already taunting eachother at work.

Truly revolutionary game, for those who aren't into 'video games'... Sadly, it's the 'last' XBOX game worth a damn.

LOL Nicholas, I don't need you to have my azz kicked, one of my friends can kill me 20 times before I kill him once. The only sucky part is when you look up at the clock after playing for a while and realize 3 hours have past!

Mike,


All in good fun ... with practice you'll be killing them !

I hear what you're saying about the time lapse... just last week we were playing multiplayer Halo1 and I looked at my clock and 3 YEARS had passed. Seriously. That's how much we played that game.

For those who don't know, just go to Google and type in 'Halo 2'. Or try Xbox.com but that's getting wailed on right about now, i could barely pull anything up.

Cheers,

Nicholas

what about the XBOX Live integration? I don't have Halo2 yet, but isn't it 'Live' enabled now... We could have a D-90 source worldwide azz kicking event! We don't have to be system linked for that, right? I haven't played my XBOX in months, and I wasn't that good on Halo anyway, but I'd enjoy being target practice for you younger wipper snappers

oh, and for kevin, this is what we're talking about:

Dave,

You're right, XBOX live is cool, and would be a great time with fellow D90-Sourcerers, and No, you don't need to be linked for that, you just need a subscription to XBOX live.
I think online play is cool, but I don't do it much... I like to play through the Campaign (the single player) and when I play multiplayer I like to see the look on my friend's faces when I punk them out...lol... There's something about not knowing 'who' my opponent is that keeps me offline most of the time... just my opinion though.

And who you calling young ? I'm probably older than you... haha.... I never stopped playing though, from way back...

Cheers,

Nicholas

Yeah we have played online, it kinda sucks though. Like I said I'm OK at the game, but my friends are very very good, when we play online we play a few teams then no one wants to play us. So we resign on with a name like 4 chicks looking for fun, then we can't turn them away. After playing for 30 seconds they are dumbfouned that they are getting there azzes handed to them by chicks and they quit out.

Oh no amount of practis is going to make me better then someone who plays games for 4+ hours everday.

The D-90 live thing sounds cool, I don't have live but my friend does.
Oh and Chris, I have my way with dealing with snipers. Most of the time it involves melee them from behind.

Well, I just finished Halo 2. Looks like they are already in position for a few more in the series. Lets hope we dont have to wait 3 year inbetween each one though. Anyone playing on LIVE yet? I have to update my account before I can get on.
