This sin't a spoiler or anything, but there were some vids up of some guys playing last night(illegally, of course) and one guy somehow managed to smack a warthog rocketing towards him with the grav hammer. It was like baseball, but the ball was 5 times his size.


Hah, sounds like they're trying to adopt Unreal's rejections. Too bad it'll never be as cool.

I'm somewhat excited for Halo 3. I don't have a 360, I'm perfectly happy with my XBox for now.
I'm sure the game will be awsome, though.

Halo 3 can bite my ass. I spent 4 hours last night I should have been sleeping trying to kill sons of bitches who knew the maps and weapons better than I did. I hope the campaign is worth the money, or else I just spent $130 for a fucking plastic helmet I can't even wear.

PS, has anyone seen this:

Holy shit, can you say "bad-ass AT2K integration"? If I were a rich-bitch suburb kid, I would buy those for sure.

More on-topic: I haven't played any Halo game since the first, what did I miss? I personally prefer Tribes.

Can you say cream in teh pants?



Because I couldn't once I played the game. But I don't deny creaming my pants.



I didn't subside into a 360 and thus not playing the Halo 2 Solo or Co-Op play, so what did I miss as well?



I played part of the co-op and some multi along with Forage (MEGA PANTS CREAMAGE). So far, I am selling le GayCube and le N64 and a shit load of games and shit to save up for the Halo 3 Limited Edition Xbox 360 and a LE Halo 3.



I read the books so far up to about a quarter through Ghosts of Onix, so I know I will get some spoilers of Halo 2, but I don't care. Just nothing out of Halo 3 please.

You wont get much for a gamecube or an n64 these days. Especially if you plan to sell it to a gametop.


I would say you should save those and your crapload of games in case you ever want to play then in the future.


More on-topic, I hope this game has better single player than halo 2, because halo 2's single player was horrible.

My friend claims to have gotten 100 dollars out of his gamecube and 8 games. I dont play them much any more and I would rather buy games I would play more and could actually use more. I happen to have a LCD game screen for my Gamecube and a case and stuff. Depending on how much I get for my games, I estimate getting around 150 for all that stuff. And as far as the n64 goes, I would be better off selling it at gamestop rather than online or on Ebay since its not as old as SNES but not new like the Gamecube.



Back on topic now, we tested Forage mode and wow....its more than just customizing a map, its battleing at the same time. Im talking spawn some stuff for your team, grab whatever guns your want, and fly onto the feild as the monitor. I did the honors in pissing a lot of people off by buzzing behind their hovering hornet or banshee and smashing 10 different kinds of hell into them with the grav hammer. And the best part, to my amazement, is that Microsoft still left some things out from the releases and trailers. We were/are still finding stuff out about the game that wasn't released into the public. Unlockable armor seems like a nice way to really urge you to play the single player. And the single player was good as far as I actually got to play it. You really try to hang onto that tactical edge as they always had in the books in this one. The needler will probably be turned WAY down. Didn't seem to powerful or anything...but I guess with the rest of the changes in the guns it gets to bring out its mighty touch of God it always had even more so.



Things that did disapoint me was the speed of the Brute Chopper. In the reviews and screenshots, it seemed to have been going much faster for some reason. On a more random note, they remind me of the pod racers in Star Wars Episode one.



Another disapointment was the stick and fire grenades. They dont have that big of a radius to them. I must say though, the spike nades do a lot of damage when you get them close enough too. As far as the fire nades, I didn't try them out much. Just a trial throw to see the fire radius and then see what kind of damage it did. It did seem to spread the fire when walking through it so I think vehicles might be fun with those. It doesn't hurt to pick them up.



SPI armor doesn't seem to work. Maybe we didn't unlock the right kind yet, but I really looked forward to the new armor from the book series being in there. It would have made co-op a little more interesting. I found myself shouting to flank right and I would hang left and stuff like that. I could see having someone with the SPI armor going left and getting even more assassination kills that way along with the 2 stickies you are able to pull off and hand full of lead you can throw into their heads. Its funny, me finding what I dont like out of the game when I give it 5 out of 5 instantly.

Heretic.

The flame grenades are a gift from Bungie when you're fighting the Flood, as is the Flamethrower. The Maulers are great against Combat Forms. Energy Swords whould be saved for use against the super-strength Flood (when one of the spider-like creatures fuses with a Combat Form).

Hah, except that was Unreal Championship. I can't wait to see UC3 on the 360, I'm thinking it's gonna blow Halo 3 away. Halo 3 is still gonna be a good game, I just don't think it'll ever be as fun to me as the incredibly fast-paced up-in-your-face action Unreal has.
If UC2 were a massive party, Halo 2 would be nap time.

What the hell? You thing the warthog drives bad in the games, are you insane? Do you think any other vehicle(except for airplanes and such) would be able to drop from a couple of hundred feet's and land safely without a scratch?

Now seriously nice video.

So, what you're saying is that it drives so badly they had to design it to crash well?

Halo 3 is the same as Halo 1, and Halo 2. I've played them all, and I've got it on good authority from a beta tester, who's played through it extensively, that most of the changes are superficial.

On that note, the same thing kinda goes for Unreal. They have the same gameplay and weapons for all of their games too.


Whatever works. I'm just sick of hearing about it being "revolutionary". Gosh, a first person shooter? What a novel idea. I have the same amount of fun playing Goldeneye.

Golly Gee! Half the boys in our local Vo-tech was missing Tuesday. Some have already beat the game. Some already have most the un-lockable armor. But 2:00 am on a school night, thats rough man, you should be given a medal or something. I think forge mode was a little cheesy to get back on-topic. I found it annoying when my friend kept spawning grav hammers. But he wasn't laughing when he got sniped out the sky in valhalla.

End of November

Eh, the weapons changed a great deal between UT99 and 2k4.
FPS games in general are not very revolutionary. I just prefer the weapon balance and gameplay of the UT series above all of the others. It's great for LAN parties because it doesn't require much practice for anyone to just jump in and play.

All of that aside I've been having fun playing Exteel through open beta.
