Nope, but you reminded me of when Halo 2 came out, and I went to go buy it and with everyone else in school, I didn't need it reserved. I was pretty much the only person in there. :p

Lol I played H3 all night and most of one day...I got to the last level but then my friends mom kicked us out lmao...the multiplayer isn't as good as H2's MP, but the campaign is a definite must play.

well see here's the deal, the NAT status on my router is STRICT, which makes it close to impossible to play online (and if I get into a game stay in for more than 10 seconds). Microsoft says I need a new router :(

You put WoW players to shame... Lol.



<Zyrjello> E-mail from my comp sci professor:
<Zyrjello> I want to be clear on this point, because several
<Zyrjello> people have asked me.
<Zyrjello> The release of HALO3, tonight, does NOT qualify
<Zyrjello> as a religious holiday.

I am a wow player =P I've had practice. When WoW was released, I played in 4 days straight. Only ate what Sith's mom brought us down. Bathroom was like 2 steps away...so I'd just get on a FP and go bio and come back. I then died for over 36 hours. Was crazy. Only slept like 11 hours last night

I just got it yesterday (thanks to my mom's credit card...she should find out in a month lol) and to be completely honest...its OK. Granted, I've only played the single player so far and I'm only like half way through the game. Hopefully I'll be getting my 360 set up through my school so I can play online.

I've just realized that I've only bought 2 games this year, yet I can't even fit all my game discs on my shelf. Something's seriously wrong here, and it's nothing to do with having too many games. I fail at being a gamer.:(

If you bought the game at midnight you're an idiot. Halo 3 is essentially Halo 2 with a graphics update and some new weapons and vehicles. Halo 3 is a good game. A great game even. But it is in NO way the best game. Single or multilayer. I'm sick of it getting so much hype. Microsoft made so much money of this when it is basically an expansion to Halo 2.

Why isn't the orange box getting this much hype. :(

Maybe because Orange Box is totally overpriced for its initial playability? Nobody cares about HL2 anymore and Portal won't be out for ages. TF2's decent, but, yeah. It's decent. I tend to take a while to want to play a game once I've bought it, though, so in 3 months I'll probably be playing it tons.=)

It still only cost me $46 CAD. Weak US dollar ftw.

My tag is cronus85 I just got it hooked up in my dorm. The multiplayer is great. They improved it quite a bit from the 2nd.

And to whoever said Halo 3 is just halo 2 with better graphics and new guns is kinda wrong...they changed pretty much all the guns and how the wielding works. Sniping is much harder too. And the thing I LOVE about the 3rd one is the fact that its more balanced. In Halo 2, the team who got the rocket launcher, sniper rifle and sword, just about always won. Now there's more options and things in halo 3.

Here's my updated recommendation. If you don't play on playing it online, don't buy it unless you absolutely love the story. Otherwise, its not really worth it.

I don't see how anything CAN'T be hard when you have to aim with a f***ing analog stick. The reaction time on consoles is so incredibly bad. I've never even played a Halo game on the PC online and I guarantee you I could beat anyone here if they played on Xbox and I used PC.=)

Dondon I highly doubt that since I own Halo for the PC and it sucks for aiming. I've tried sniping on there and on all three games on the console and it is way easier on the console. Anyways, I have to send my 360 in to microsoft because of the 3 rings of red death that suddenly appeared a couple of days ago.

Halo 3 was a big disappointment in my eyes. The multiplayer was lacking and the plot line was flimsy.

Orange Box is supposed to be pretty good. Portal will own, and it's coming out the same time as all the others, which is in a week exactly (I don't know why everyone says it's never coming out... I've read a review on the game already). I think it'll be well worth it, since the price of the Orange Box alone is less then Episode 2, TF2, and Portal put together (and why wouldn't I want HL2 and Episode 1 for the 360, anyways? I'd like to relive the greatness on my TV x] ). I'll shut up about off-topic matters now.

Anyways, I happen to enjoy Halo 3's Multiplayer, SplinterEgo if anyone want's to go a round. x] I played a good 30 minutes of the story and that's about it... >_>

Then Halo on the console must have "easy" netcode where you don't have to aim well. Or maybe Halo for PC has really bad netcode.
