    Well, hopefully there won't be a lot of lag. If anything, I'm so looking forward to playing multi with at least one 12 year old shouting profanity and calling me gay . :rolleyes2

    I’m going to using the 360’s feedback system like a maniac.

    During Halo 2 I have grown to hate being on the same team as people I don’t know. I just wish there was some way to talk to the parents of the screaming kid and convince them to take the M rated game away. Or drop the white guy shouting the N-word into the middle of the projects.

    I don't plan on playing online unless it's all people I know. I have no tolerance for idiots.

    I can handle it if I know the people on my team. It fun to kill the screaming kid, the dude with his mic next to his speaker blasting music and the guy yelling “Oh my god!” at everything that happens.

    But man if I ever end up playing on the same team with some dopes that think it’s funny to drive the warthog off a cliff over and over again I’ll lose my shit.

    I'll probably wait a few days and beat Campaign before trying online

    Well, I plan on playing the campaign mode first- I'd rather do that then get humiliated online first.

    I've played bits of Halo, but I've NEVER played Halo 2. *Rocks are thrown at him*

    But, I DO want Halo 3 just for the experience! :D

    There should be enough of us playing together to not have to worry about having any annoying brats on our team. Unless Twin Twist is around :p

    Maybe we should do that; get each others screen names and just have a big match up involving TF members

    Hey, is it possible in Halo 3 to have an all-out deathmatch online? You know, just have everyone here on board battle against each other?

    That'd be SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET. :D

    We used to be able to, and without AutobotMaximal around, they might even end up being fun this time :eek:

    I think that Microsoft will have the network set up to handle the stress. With over a million preorders a month prior to the game's release it would be prudent of them to get Xbox Live ready.

    It would be a shame if they appeared to spend more energy on Mountain Dew than on network bandwidth.

    Oh yeah, you can have an every man for himself free for all, or team slayer matches.
    Good times are on the way. :thumb 

    I would also like to add that what I find more annoying than the homophobic teenagers, the racist guys, or the dude that has to say "Damn!" every two seconds is when you run into that guy who pretends that his girlfriend is "paying attention" to him while he is trying to play the game.

    "No baby, not now. Oh please baby you got to stop that, I am trying to play this game."

    What and also ever.
    Like I believe that.
    I love videogames, but if my wife ever decides it's time to get busy, the 360 gets turned off no matter what I have going on.
