Halo is for squares.  ::)

What's with this generation and their obsession with graphics? YES. it looks pretty. How long till the gameplay is boring?

heh, I wouldn't say halo3 is a game for graphic whores, it looks nice and all, but nothing I've seen screams "next gen"

as for the gameplay, I'm going to get halo3, but I'm not even gonna start the single player, only getting it for the multiplayer :y:, I found both halo 1 and 2 to be very overrated, but when you balance out the multiplayer in halo2 properly, it's really good
btw, I have one friend who is a halo nut, he's taken off 1 week to play the beta release.. I remember back in school, one of my friends didnt come to school for about a month when GTA vice city came out..

Does anyone remember the good ol' days of pixelation.swoo.net? That was back when I first started pixelling. I totally lost track of everyone but splat(thanks to his DA page). Anyway, it's good to be back, I'll try to post some work this weekend.

I agree with the second part. And so does Halo 3. Because Halo 3 still looks like Halo. It's just got some more detail in the environment, some better lighting and effects, and higher quality textures. But it still looks like Halo. That's a good thing. So many people seemed to expect Halo 3 to look like Gears of War. But thing is, Gears of War doesn't look good... It's technically impressive, yes, but I don't think it looks good at all.

So it's really refreshing that Halo 3 doesn't go nuts about graphical capabilities, and lets gameplay take the front seat once again.

Also, no, it's not "on live"... Crackdown owners and people who got selected through Bungie's Rule of 3 and Friends and Family programs are enjoying the Halo 3 beta for a limited time of three weeks. I'm a happy Crackdown owner, so I take the opportunity to play it now and then.
