Halo(all)
« on: September 25, 2007, 06:49:16 PM »
As we all know.  Halo 3 came out today.  The Halo series is pretty much the only reason why people buy and Xbox or a top-of-the-line PC because the graphics are so great and the gameplay is decent and great online multiplayer (not counting the first Halo for the Xbox).  I have only played through the single player levels of Halo for the PC and I haven't done other than multiplayer on Halo 2.  Halo 2 for the PC is only compatible on the crappy OS known as Windows Vista and they say there's a program you can get somewhere that allows you to play Halo 2 on XP.  But I still have yet to find that program and download the Halo 2 PC torrent.

I would rather play Halo 2 on Vista than XP.

Not recommended.  Vista has been known to actually slow down games with high end graphics instead of improve them.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again -- I'll never understand you Halo fanatics. :lol:

As for the new Halo 3 for XBox 360, it totally rocks!  The storyline, graphics and gameplay are all sweet!  Of course, on-line Multiplayer is the real money maker.

Another nice feature is Forge Mode where you get to edit the existing levels as you please.  Setting it up the way you want is quite nice in my book and makes many different possibilities of how you want it.

I'm so going to love this thing!  I highly recommend it for ANY Halo fan. ^_^

I'm not really a huge Halo fan, though i do enjoy the franchise. I'm not planning on buying yet because i still have a few games to beat.

Thats sweet, i loved timesplitters so much because of the level editor. I might have a fun time fooling around with that.

Now the question truley rises for this topic...Which version did you choose?

Me personally I had to have the Legendary edition of the game, just for the extra bonus material!

I played Halo 3 for the first time yesterday!  My favorite online mode is the 28 days later map. I also did some 2 player CO-OP.

Just a little spoiler for you Halo 3.  






Sit through the end credits because there is another scene after they are over.

Okay.  I actually wondered what the heck this was, so I went out and bought the PC game.  Wow.  It sure is a waste of processing power and hd space.  It wasn't much fun either. :( That's the last time I buy a video game in my life.  Seriously. :rolleyes:

Though, it might have been more fun if it didn't take so much out of my PC and I played it with an actual controller. :P:

I always watch the credits to see if there is another video. The ending in Halo 3, in my opinion, was a bit dissapointing, but overall the campaign is pretty fun, way more fun though if you play on legendary.

I must disagree with you. Not much fun? Halo is a lot of fun, in my opinion, especially playing it with friends online. What exactly do you find fun for a video game?

I've talked to other people about this. It seems that the Halo series is considered largely overrated by many, saying that the game play and story lines are clich√ąd and that games like Half-Life 2 are much better.

I don't necessarily agree, but we all have our own opinions anyway.

I only recently got into Halo(I know, I'm slow). The first game really lives up to the hype. I hope to get my PC upgraded so I can play Halo 2, and so I can get better multiplayer connections.

I've never played anything Halo because I abstain from anything with an M or R rating, so I don't know if it's "over rated" or not. However, for those that say it is largely over rated, I have heard those who say it is bigger than Noah's Flood. Again, opinions vary widely, and I've never played Halo for myself (and never will).

I had my doubts about Halo as well, but I decided to give it a chance and try it out.

This is reply is out of the blue, but I've never actually played "Halo", because it doesn't look like my kind of thing. Would someone mind telling me the basics of this series that I always hear all the X-Box fans raving about? What's the story of the plot? And is it really an "shoot 'em up" MMORPG that all the advertisements would have me believe it is? Reply or ignore this post as you see fit, as I hope not to interrupt any discussions here.
