I hate that I have to work today.  I guess I'll unlock it during my lunch break and play tonight when I get home from work.


Talk about positive impressions.  You guys make it even harder to work today...

I just found something interesting on the Halo 2 ending that people are complaining about (with good reason it seems).

If you finish the game on Legendary, the credits roll and say "Coming February 9th"... but no one seems to know what that refers to.

I just thought that maybe, just maybe, it could be some downloadable content with new levels for the campaign, with a "true ending".  It could be anything though, of course. I'm definitely curious.


I've heard it threw the grape vine that Rare and Bungie are working on Halo 3 together and that will be announced on Feb. 9th. smile

And I'm serious.

The highlight of the night was when I respawned helpless high on a structure after my wraith was shotdown. My wife flew up in her wraith, I jumped on top of the canopy, and then we continued the fight (her flying carefully) with me gunning on top as a ride-a-long grunt. Fun game.


I believe you're talking about The Banshee, not the wraith.  If you had a wraith in the air I you should have taken video of it slywink

Quote from: "Jeff Jones"
I used my blockbuster gamepass to pick this up today. I'm pretty impressed so far. You were definitely right about the language. They hold nothing back.

Isn't it odd that MOH had no foul language, or even blood IIRC, and it was for the PC platform, which is supposedly geared towards adults. On the console, supposedly geared for the younger crowd, they go all out with the language and blood.

Anyway, I can see my delving deeper into this one, it seems pretty cool.

If anyone knows, how are the save checkpoints, is there a lot of having to play and replay the same areas over and over?


My friend and I had to replay the same area a few times.  It was rewarding though.  It was on the swift boat mission.  At the end of it you have to take the bridge and it's pretty tough.  There is a machine gunn on the bridge and a ton of enemy soldiers.  It took us 3 times to pass it, and when we finally passed it only one of us made it (me).  Luckily there is a check point after that part so we were able to move on.

I'm playing the game off the hard drive so that may or may not have something to do with me not seeing many glitches.
2332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Graphics Glitches? on: November 15, 2004, 02:32:20 PM
I just don't see all the problems people are talking about.  Sure, during some cut scenes there is some clipping or pop-in, but not often.  The game is beautiful, imho.

Alice, I agree completely.  Men of Valor is awesome.  My friend and I were going through it coop up until Halo 2 came out.  Now we're going to beat that, but we'll go right back to finish Men of Valor.  The swift boat level is pretty darn fun to, hard, but fun.  

Very good game that should be checked out by any fan of FPS's.

I'm playing Halo 2 and Men of Valor coop with a good friend.  Also, I just started the new LOTR game but I'm not sure about it yet.   On the PC I'm playing Medal of Honor Pacific Assault and Counterstrike:  Source, while waiting on HL2 to come out.  

I also have a campaign going on in Rome Total War that I Would like to finish.

Normally I wouldn't touch a Dell product, but you gotta admit, this LCD looks sweet. I don't like the audio bar thingy either, but the good news is, it's removable. Notice the S-Video-in there... That means I can ditch my crappy TV. And it's only $800, and knowing Dell and their crazy coupons, I could probably get this for $600 or so.

I'm seriously considering buying this.


I must ask why you wouldn' ttouch a Dell product?

I'll continue to build my own computers, but I've found them to be pretty darn good for the money for family and friends.

I have found that I actually prefer the xLink Kai systemlink setup over the Live setup in Halo 2.

Of course it's the only option I have now that I've been banned, but I did play a good amount of Halo 2 on live at my friends house and the xLink setup seems just as good if not better.

I advise running in dmz, because you forfeit the little protection provided by the router.  Unless you also have software firewalls running on all the connecting client computers, this is a Very Bad Thing (tm).

You don't advise him to run in dmz correct?  Just want to clarify.  The hardware protection provided by a router is much better than a software solution.

No one knows what Locke gained on the island, and he definately has an interest in staying there.

Napolean,
wouldn't it point you in the direction of everyone who might have the file?

And then you grab different pieces of it, whether theirs is complete or not.


It directs the client to users who are sharing the file (seeding), and allows you to pull from each of them at once.  The torrent file isn't a small part of the file you're trying to download though.

I hope they are able to design the hard drive version in a way that prevents piracy, piracy hurts all gaming, even systems that are difficult to pirate, like the Gamecube, because some people choose the xbox over the Gamecube because it makes piracy incredibly easy.


Or because gamecube releases like 3, maybe 4 good games per year.

One of them will be like a PC, shock


By Wil Harris: Thursday 11 November 2004, 10:23

A SLIDE from a non disclosure agreement (NDA) presentation seen by the INQ points towards Microsoft launching three versions of the Xbox 2, one of which is a fully functioning PC.
The presentation, understood to have been given to analysts and market researchers in the UK earlier this year, plots a timeline for the introduction of the systems. Xbox Next and Xbox Next HD are planned for Autumn 2005, whereas the Xbox Next PC is pencilled in for Autumn 2006.

The standard Xbox Next will not include a hard drive, which will allow Microsoft to cut costs on this basic unit. Xbox Next HD, as you might imagine, does include a hard drive and will offer increased functionality based on this. Xbox Next PC is, according to the presentation, an entry-level PC that runs Windows and all standard PC software. It also includes CD Burner, Wireless keyboard, mouse and controller and will work best connected to a high-definition TV or PC monitor. Media Center functionality - like movies, music and photos - is also included. The device will also play most available PC games.

System outline specifications note that internet browsing and instant messaging would be key applications, and that the entire unit will be smaller than the current Xbox, although it will not be possible to upgrade the shipping memory or processor.

The year-long gap between the mooted introductions of the 2 standard Xboxes before the Xbox Next PC is an interesting decision, which suggests that Microsoft realises the time that the market needs to acclimatise to TV media functionality. Since the Vole expects to ship Xbox Next before the Sony PlayStation 3, 2 versions of the console allow it to get the first wave out before PS3, but to also spoil the launch of Sony's flagship by concurrently announcing the PC version. ยต

My friend and I played coop last night and had a blast.  It's beyond what I even thought it would be.  It is everything I loved about Halo times 20.  The Squadmate AI is pretty darn good in my opinion and the AI of your enemies is a lot better as well.  I love the new vehicle jacking feature and that the enemy will do it as well.  My friend and I were driving through the tunnel to the bridge on the 2nd level in a warthog when we took some serious damage from a ghost.  We jumped out to fight, only to have 2 baddies get in the warthog and come after us.  Very sweet.   I can't wait to play more and get a new Xbox so I can play online... smile

Interesting thread...because I'm interested in getting an xbox soon, but am not sure if I want to go live or not...but where do you find xboxes for $99?  Also if that's used, how do you know the xbox isn't banned?

Is there also an advantage of having a larger drive?  Isn't the drive used for saving games and if so...how large are these game saves??

Thanks.


My friend works at a local gameshop that sells used systems and he can get me one with his discount.  

The advantage of having a larger hard drive for me is that I have every single game from the NES, SNES, Genesis, all the systems before those in the form of emulators, + my favorite arcade fighter of all time Killer Instinct.  I put new movies on it all the time for my fiance and I to watch (plays Divx, mpg, avi, wmi, .vob, .bin, .iso, .etc).  I stream shoutcast radio streams from the Xbox to my sound system & now I put every single Xbox game I own on the hard drive which cuts down on load times, but more important I don't get any more dirty disc errors (launch Xbox with the Thomson drive).  I have a 160 gigs, and right now I have about 70 gigs free.

My XBOX is set to 16x9 mode . . . I always left the original (even though it was 4x3) stretched to 16x9 . . . looked ok to me.  So if I switch the BOX back to 4x3 mode . . . it will go top-bottom?  Great . . . I'll try that when I get home . . .  just not enough peripheral vision the way it defaulted . . . thanks!!!!!!!


Hey ras, I can confirm that it will work.  My friend and I had the same problem last night.  We're both used to playing top/bottom.  It took me a while to figure it out but we changed it off widescreen in the dashboard and it fixed it.
