    1. It went GOLD today. Which means it's passed Quality Assurance and is now being pressed in the millions of copies to give us to play in... 25 or so days.

    2. NO CLAN SUPPORT IN HALO 3

    http://www.2old2play.com/News/Halo_3_Clan_Support_And_Longevity

    Dreams of a TFW2005 clan are dashed on the rocks of disappointment at the bottom of the cliffs of despair. No big, our clan sucked ass anyway last time. I blame AutobotMaximal for never going for the flag.

    3. First Gameplay footage of Halo Wars is on Live and can also be viewed here;

    4. In case you missed it, Live Action Halo footage :eek:

    I'm going to at least try and keep this thread up to date over the next few weeks (like our Rockband/GHIII thread is being tended to) to stop a kajillion threads of a similar nature popping up like they did over the god damned Transformers game :mad:

    I continue to be amazed at Twin Twist's GIF SKILLZ!

    I am not so big on RTS games, so I don't know if I will get Halo Wars, but I have taken a day off on the 25th. Those of you that did likewise, look up Adam Smasher!

    Psst, I don't make em, I just find em and share em.


    Anyway, as for Halo Wars... the graphics are neat, but it just looks like... an RTS with a Halo skin, where's that undeniable Halo stuff like Warthogs driving round in circles, use of cover and terrain? Even the idiot NPC's in the actual game are more dynamic, it's kinda baffling as to what exactly they're trying to acheive here apart from making it an RTS with Halo slapped on the box.

    I don't care if you are the creator or the middleman, you always seem to have a new one that makes me LOL.

    This one is originally from Zoolander, right?

    Why put in clans when you can charge people $$$$ for it later? Also Stranglehold comes Sept 7. to hold over between Bioshock and Halo 3.

    Damn. I don't have an Xbox 360, and I want this game BAD. :(  Why can't Microsoft make Halo for Wii? :cry

    As soon as Nintendo makes a Mario game for MS, it'll happen.

    PS: Never.

    Anyways, i'm looking forwards to Halo 3, but i'm not nearly as hyped up about it as I was 2. I got hurt in that relationship, the way you never should get hurt :( 

    Forge looks like it'll be a blast though.

    So does anyone know if the Elite is really "ring-proof"? Cause I'd pick one up just for this if I knew I wouldn't have to send the damn thing in to be worked on in six months.

    So, just curious about something and I figured this would be a good place to ask. I've played Halo and Halo 2 and as far as I'm concerned it's just like every other decent FPS out there. So what exactly makes this franchise so incredible that it's warrenting it's own live action movie already?

    P.S. I know Master Chief rocks, but I'd prefer more reasons then just that.

    I was told by an Xbox rep that they are only giving the elite the newest hardware. I for one am not happy about having to send my XBOX back to them to fix yet again, but such is life. I'm still happier with this than I would be with a PS3.

    Eeeeeeeh, Halo 2 was good I thought, well all the Master Chief bits were anyway. Are there going to be any other playable characters in single player, cuz if there are... well I don't care.

    However, for this I think I'll go LIVE!. I say that everytime, but for this one... well. yeah. And I want to link my PC to my 360 as well... so I'll have to get a wireless thing. Hmm.

    I'm honestly not all that excited, but I want to get it for the XBL multiplayer.

    (AKA: The only way I'll stay in touch with some people for a few months when it comes out)

    Wow, that settles that questions. Guess I'm not picking up a 360 anytime soon.

    Well, that display has all the ingredients for the Red Ring of Death.
    1. Console is vertical.
    2. Console is enclosed in plastic -preventing ventilation.
    3. Console will be moved while in operation. (At Wal-mart I saw a lady ram the 360 display with her shopping cart so hard that groceries fell out of the cart.)

    If you have hardware that is prone to overheating, that is the wrong way to display it.
    Also, I have seen every manufacturer's store display system break including the seemingly indestructible Game Boy Advance.

    If you want to get one, I say get one. If you get the red rings, MS will fix it and may even pony up a free game or something for your trouble.
    The red ring threat is real, I am not trying to put any spin on this -but its not worth missing out on this hardware generation's best platform. (The previous statement was my opinion.)
