Halo 3
 
Discuss anything Halo 3.

I haven't really been paying attention to it, but I saw the "believe" commercial on tv the other day and freaked out.

I looked at the John-117 monument stuff, that's pretty crazy.

Post anything about the game, like things that will be in it, multiplayer maps, etc.

Halo 3 will be my life for the first few months after it comes out.

I'm more psyched for Halo 3 than any game ever.

Every time I watch this, I remember how awesome this is going to be. Which is often since I have it on my Ipod.

Eh, what the heck, I'll add in a few more comments.

I can't wait.
I can't wait shotgun unsuspecting dupes underground on snowbound.
I can't wait to rain down fire on high ground with the detachable turret from the laser spawn.
I can't wait to blow up the entire opposing team on valhalla because I've placed trip mines at every entrance in just the right place so they can't see them until it is too late.
I can't wait to never have to say "Awwww, I wish I could have recorded that game just now".

And I can't wait to do all of the stuff I did in the beta I just decided not to mention in this thread. ;)

Oh I can't wait, just one more week! this is the only game that will make me stop playing Madden.

DChess 09-18-2007 01:25 PM

draftguru151 09-18-2007 01:35 PM

Finally reserved it. Monday night!!!!

PoopSandwich 09-18-2007 01:41 PM

There are already spoilers people ruined the end of the game for me already :(

draftguru151 09-18-2007 01:43 PM

Post them and you'll die. (Or at least get suspended)

Unless it's something from the memorial, then it's ok. I don't want to ruin it so if you want to dicuss it put it in white.

<That thing was awesome and it pretty much leads you to believe that Master Chief is dead, but I'm not sure if it happens in the game or later on. I can't wait to see how it ends though.>

Here is the video of the "John 117 Monument"

Smokey Joe 09-18-2007 11:07 PM

TH3 09-19-2007 12:40 AM

KCJ58 09-19-2007 12:42 AM

i didnt pre-order this game (i know im and idiot) but i can't wait till it comes out

RyanLeaf#1 09-19-2007 12:43 AM

What is the release date for this game?

Shiver 09-19-2007 12:47 AM

9-25-07

The day the final chapter of the top video game trilogy comes out.

Green Bay Scat 09-19-2007 12:49 AM

i dont know why, but i never really got into it, maybe cause there are like 1 billion 13 year olds playin online, or maybe its the fact my friends younger sister was hitting on people in texas and giving them their house phone number, but i dont know, ive never really been into it, not big in FPS i guess

what does that have to do with Halo 3?

j05son 09-19-2007 02:25 AM

I never pre-order games and get them the day they come out...

Like Madden '08, my local gamestop didn't even have enough copies for the people who pre-ordered them and was given to those who ordered first. While the rest had to wait for the next shipment.

My buddies and I just went to our local wal*mart and waiting for 15 mins until midnight for them to start releasing them...15mins early and we were like 5th in line...

Same was done for Halo 2...

We'll get Halo 3 at midnight with waiting no longer than 30 mins...If you didn't pre-order just go to BestBuy or Wal*Mart or Target or anywhere they will sell the game but doesn't take pre-orders...Really easy.

does anything really have to have a reason? it just seem creepy, plus he was all like, u remember if u asked if i liked u or not, well it turns out i do. how the **** does it turn out, do u suck ur dick and realize, hmmm maybe i dont like this or what? it has nothing to do with Halo, but all to do with the amount of stupid people on Halo, its probably somewhere like 10% smart - 90% 10-13 years old

TitleTown088 09-19-2007 05:43 AM

I just hope its not a disapointment like halo 2. That game got to far away from what made halo a great game, its simplicity. Dont get me wrong i enjoyed playing it, in fact its the only video game i have played in the last 5 years.But, give me a old pistol and a snip on HH or BG in halo 1, and you can count up a couple killing sprees. Head shotn' and dank nadn' chumps driving warthogs, three shot pistol kills, and perhaps a devious wack from behind. Man, I miss the real halo. 20 bucks says this one is the worst yet, I bet they will try and do to much with it.

For me it's the multiplayer. Not since Goldeneye for the 64 have I been able to play hours on end with my friends and having fun every game. It's seems so simple but yet their is so much strategy involved in a simple game like Team Slayer. What really makes the game is the superior multiplayer level design, every level has so much hidden things to find, be it jumps or hiding places. It may not seem like that if you are just starting out playing the game but once you start to get better and master the levels it only get's more fun. The controls and just the way aiming feels is perfect. To me gaming is about having fun with a group of friends, it's about direct competition between two or more people. Halo is just able to deliver on all levels for me.

I can see why some people may not like it though. Some games just don't suit people. I've always hated other "amazing" games like KOTOR or Final Fantasy, or Zelda. Just no other game can eclipse the feeling I gewt by playing an hour or two of Halo

Caddy 09-19-2007 09:01 AM

I'm not really sure if I'll get the game. I guess I'll just wait and see what everyone thinks of it first and then consider it after my exam period is finished.

Multiplayer. You have to play it alot to get obsessed with it because when your "skills" get very good, there is alot more to the game. I used to play the first one over the computer on Xboxconnect.com and it was the ****. You can get together with all your friends and stuff... It gets really competitive.I guess its difficult to explain, but i bet if you would have played it more you would have liked it much more.
