Try and be a comedian by posting spoilers without using spoiler tags and you'll be reported. kthx.

Anyway, this has to be the most hyped game of the year. I'm going to sell my Wii and a few games and try to be there midnight, launch day(Gamestop). I only hope I'm not too late...

Halo is really the Star Wars of our era. However, people tend to judge it on Halo 2, which was rushed and some what of a dissapointment. Halo 3 has been getting all the time and love it needs to be the game Bungie always wanted to make. Looking forward to it.

Forge anyone?

I preordered my copy of Legendary Edition within 30 minutes of it being up on Play.com, which wasn't that long ago actually, a few hours.
Everywhere in the UK was out of stock except for Play and Amazon, who hadn't put theirs up for order yet, Amazon still haven't. Anyway, I'm happy I'll be getting my mitts on the Legendary. Can't wait. colgate.gif

The Forge is a really cool idea, being able to play while others are adding new objects in the environment around you. That and mod privelages, Bungie is taking a lot of ideas from PC FPSs, which is why my interest-o-meter has spiked recently.

I don't plan on getting it opening day, but once the inital frenzy dies down I'll probably just head to Gamestop and check if they have any copies left.

I'll be getting a copy, but if it's anything like the Halo 2 release I'm going to get my ass whooped by a crowd of fat white boys again. sad.gif

I've never played either of the two previous Halo games and i'm not really a big fan of the series but i'll end up getting the game anyway. biggrin.gif

I'll just read the storyline of Halo 1 and 2 and then play Halo 3 when it comes out. The 4 player online co-op is mighty tempting, should be a great laugh with my mates online.

I will only be getting this game for the storyline. I honestly hated Halo 2 online play unless I was specifically playing with people I knew. Overall, I just want to finish the story.

The story is definitely well written. Halo 3 seems to be taking a positive turn with what I've seen of Cortana.

Thanks for the spoiler enforcement 'nujer. I don't know if posting links is such a good idea, it could be something like http://gamesstuff.co...-is-darth-vader or something like that...so if you're gonna post spoiler links maybe you should use spoiler tags just in case.

http://gamestuff.com/news/master-chief-is-darth-vader

As for pre-ordering, I still haven't, and I haven't been able to call my local stores to see if they still have some pre-orders left..hopefully I'm not too late.

yeah, i really dont understand why people like halo so much, i played a few times at a mates house, it was alright, but nothing special at all, its just a basic first person shooter, and the shooting is just crap to be honest and it gets seriously boring after a while.

i think the game brainwashes people in to liking it biggrin.gif

The smiley really accentuates how terrifically hilarious your post is. smile.gif

Between this and Bioshock and Mass Effect then Rock Band, COD 4, Guitar Hero III, and others, this has to be the best fall of gaming since 2004. If GTA IV was here it would be even better.

Yeah, I just looked on youtube now. Theres still a few of the endings online.
I've watched it, but the video quality was horrible. You could hardly make sense of anything.

I wasn't sure I was going to get this game, but I'm finding myself wanting it more and more. Damn, guess we will see how things go come sept 25th. Damn me for having such easy access to buying it through my work!

Anyone watch the Future Weapons Halo 3 Preview on discovery channel last night? Made me want it even more!

Add Blue Dragon and Manhunt 2 to the list as well as the Orange Half-Life Boxset with 3 Games including the new Team Fortress Classic and you can count me a broke man.



...but yea I'll be at the midnight release next week. blush.gif

Yeah, I was watching it while drinking my game fuel (wut) and Mcdonalds Special limited time offer Masters Big Mac while wearing my master Chief is Samus t-shirt.

I've only played a Halo game for 20 minutes (lunch period was over) and kick me out for not knowing sh*t about it, but this has to be the biggest hype for a video game ever. I wonder how much it cost them for that episode. Not that I watched it or anything.

plus

The ending cutscene, only half of the Chief's ship makes it through the portal (opened by the object in my signature, that ISN'T The Ark), so The Arbiter makes it back to earth, while Chief and Cortona are floating in space. You are led to believe Chief is dead, but after the credits, we see Cortona, she sends out a beacon, telling the Chief it might take a few years before they are picked up. Chief says, "Screw that", and goes into a cyro chamber. Any more questions, feel free to ask.

Yeah, even though the ending got spoiled for me, I am actually more excited.

at 6:15, the opening cinematic starts (This isn't spoiler, right?)

I really don't get how Chief magically has new gloves (knew this from Beta), or how Johnson and the Arbiter beat him back to earth
