staying out to get it at 12 was one of my birthday liberties. I played it offline though. trust me g, the crowd now is the same as rainbow with the addition of a few 12 yearolds. I played the beta and everyone is pretty cool... if there was ever a time to play the game its while everyone is amicable because they have the game and are so happy rather than later when their awe has been superseded by dochieness. besides, I'm leet on the mute + boot. what's your gt? just play player matches with d, my friends and i and you'll be fine, all the douches are in matchmaking at low levels and high levels on ffa. let me announce why it's worthwhile.

kick ass story. I've played a level alone so far, I plan on finishing it today with friends in 4 player coop
forge, you can play any game type you want basically.
ranks outside of ranked mode
save movies
new weapons
char. model customization
the elephant
technology will give the 12 yearolds a hard time since all they think about is shoot, not the much more effective techniques that involve throwing technology down to help you.

eh, I've never been a big Halo fan. Most of the time the more hype there is about something, the less likely I am to buy into it, with most things at least. I saw line at the game stores last night and heard that the release anticipation made Microsoft's stock go up 3%.

Space Mace is the official name for the gravity hammer from now on out.

I won't lie, the story has me a BIT confused... especially the timeline. at the end of halo 2, didn't mastercheif get on the ark... why is it being dug up now.... and why wasn't he on it when it landed on earth?

Online play - 9.2/10
why: equipment, support weapons, new vehicles and weapons all add to the experience of halo 2, which I would have given an 8 or 8.5. Forge and new modes make it a blast to play, and encourage custom games over matchmaking. It would have received a 9.5 but I feel that there aren't enough great maps. New map packs soon, should add to this. I don't like many maps because I love halo in an "outdoors" setting, and close range is too fast for me.
Story - 9.5
why: the story is very good, I love the overall feel of 4player coop and how the META-game was made so that you can score campaign. Flow is fast paced and enemies aren't pushovers. I'm only half way through and I'm at a part with some hated foes.... I've stopped there for now until more friends get on.
Visuals: 9.8
the best looking game I've seen in awhile, up there with bioshock, gears of war and the likes. Cinematics and minicuts are both well placed and enigmatic.
Audio: 10
superb. i have 5.1 dolby digital blasting this amazing sound... it couldn't be better.
Improvement over halo 2 and other games/cost of new game - well worth it.
the hype really brings out crowds and I love a good group of friends. I have a lan party scheduled already and I'm working on some maps in forge.



Overall (not an average of prev. scores) i would rate it well into 9/10 range... if not closer to 9.5 or 9.7. THIS IS A GREAT GAME.

How does my comment not makes sense? I have played Halo 2, it was okay but it didn't impress me. There was absolutely nothing about it that would get me excited about Halo 3 and definitely no make me want to run out and buy it. Those types of games have never excited me and the more I hear about others playing them, the less desire I have to play them. What is there not to understand? As I see it the more hype, the more build up for disappointment.

Hmmm, I didn't see anybody say anything about wanting less. Like you said bud, different strokes for different fokes. I don't like the game, thats me, doesn't affect you at all. First time I played halo I was expecting way more than what it was, due to everything I heard about it, aka HYPE. I just didn't think there was anything special about the game.

OMG the first 3-4 levels are basically just to get your feet wet, the last 3 make up for everything with epicness. by far worth every penny of 60 bucks. If you read the books, you will be rewarded, if you didn't you won't catch some subtle moments. changing assessment of story to 9.8 only because 4 of us easily rushed through it. we'll be finding skulls and nabing some other goodies tommorow.

You don't get the good, but still enigmatic ending unless on leg. You will have no idea what hit you, I'm pretty sure this is a 3+ playthrough to catch all the subtleties. You need to know some backround. D, you're not on my list, I should get you on there. Oh, and forge is awesome. The maps are really big in a wide way... I think they need some long and medium width ones.

I beat it on Heroic today. Campaign was meh.

Heroic is the new normal. Legendary gets the real cutscenes.

4 main things:
read the books, play the other games, when cortana/gravemind talks listen. She makes links to tons of things subtly, if you catch even half you'll be impressed. The multifaceted battles are pretty crazy imo, especially with all the changing alliances.

play with friends, skulls, scoring and look for easter eggs. If you are an RVB fan, they have an easter egg that's pretty easy to accidentally find. In the first large tunnel with cars in it for "crow's nest" keep going down the main tunnel rather than through the service door on the left. At the end of the tunnel (a jog to the left and down a bit from the correct door) is a guy banging on another service door, he'll be talking to someone, this is the egg... listen, it's pretty funny.

Admire some scenery. Bungie worked hard to make it look like a battle is going on, stop getting tunnel vision and look up at the sky, sometimes battles are going on. Look around.

use the online functions. http://www.bungie.net/Stats/Halo3/Screenshots.aspx?gamertag=Claus9 take pictures, videos etc. and make use of them.... btw durrell, friend me... my GT is in the link.

lmao. friend me... old screen name's nickname/shortened version + a 9 at the end... or just pm me.


BTW I've been hearing way too much "wahhh, this wasn't such an awesome story" about halo 3, so i figured I might give a couple reasons why since people are fairly dense and think bungie is just like everyone else.

Bungie references a lot of previous works. In a sense, the halo series is an updated, more detailed version of "marathon" where generalities were replaced with intricate details. If they ever have a reference to marathon, you should think like it's the same game.

Bungie originally used subtleties and environment to portray plot details... this was to make players feel accomplished once getting it... since that doesn't exist any more, and people give up, I'll help. They had to change to cut scenes to make a product that worked... if things don't fit together perfectly, study up on some of the books, or take a look at some more subtle stuff. Bungie is known for ARG's, and some are very, very compelling.

I will guarantee that you missed over half of the plot if all you did was play the game and kill covenant, then watch the cut scenes.

The story mode contains the following:

****[minor spoilers... trust me, most of it is common knowlege]****






-The end of the covenant/human war and how it comes about.
-The end of the flood problem and how it comes about.
-A pause/transition of Spartan-II, John 117 into more mystery
-A sub theme of rampancy (look it up - in regards to AI)
-An explanation of the forerunner's conflict with the flood, and why they fired the rings.
-An explanation of how the rings are made.
-A possible transition to reuniting with 6+ other surviving Spartans
-BOOK only references (through Cortana)/ history of John-117
-A parallel with marathon series and questions regarding possible levels that Bungie might add or possible story arc's to branch from Halo
-Insight into the workings of the flood



You are missing out if you don't understand all of what I said, and not looking into these but claiming Halo 3 had only a decent campaign shows your arrogance and inability to look deeper into a seemingly shallow game.

technically ghosts doesn't explain any new armor since you can't use their SPI armor which is non shielded infiltration suits designed for quick movements and low cost.

EOD is explosive ordinance disposal, which means it protects you from shockwaves (not in the game, but theoretically)

EVA is extra vehicular activity

everything else is spelled out in the descriptions.

as for the game, i wasnt that impressed. its just like the first two, with a few new weapons and way better graphics. the story line doesnt make sense if you havent beaten 2, and the running/jumping still sucks. its still more moon gravity/slow motion than anything... (i know that you're a genetically engineered soldier or an alien, but jumping a span of 20ft over a period of 5 seconds is a little slow!) and they really cut down on armor effectiveness. on the up side, the detailing is awesome, and the outdoor lighting is amazing. Forge is fun, and it makes for a potentially good pick-up game if you want to waste a few hours. i'd rather play Resistance co-op than H3 though. more unique weapons, more strategy-based, faster paced, and a unique storyline makes it a little more refreshing.

Hahaha, I loved that. I showed it to some of my friends. The first thing I said was "this sounds like Red vs. Blue". That was probably one of my favorite things in the Campaign. I laughed hard at it.

lol, we watched that twice, because we killed the guy half way through the conversation the first time. my friend was like "Hey! that sounds like Church!"

I'll probably get on for like an hour or so around 10:30-11. I'm gonna knock some homework out before I play. Everyone try and get on so we can have a decent sized game.

wow halo 3 lan party... 10am - 11:30 pm
amazing. I'll see if i can get pics of the damage.... also i have teh vids of durrell and his bud getting double killed with plasma pistol, battle rifle.


legendary sucks for meta game btw.

heroic
thunderstorm skull (gives a field promotion to all baddies)
mythic skull (2x health for baddies)
famine (50% ammo in pickups)
tilt (makes different species resistant to different guns, eg brutes take no damage from human until armor is broken, hunters only take low speed human damage or chemical based grenade)
fog (no radar)
tough luck (enemies saving throws are really good)

those skulls make it feel more realistic, but playing it on legendary with those could end you...

when meta game gets slower...

grunt birthday party (for fun, grunt's head explodes with confetti when head shot achieved, children scream "yay!"... hilarious)
i would have been your daddy (makes dialog more interesting)

I'm pretty sure that's a double reference to F.O.R when they test the mark v shields and to the pillar of autumn in Halo: combat evolved, whenever you start taking too much damage.

The reference I got was from playing Halo:CE
Not sure on the more obscure one about testing.
