If I've never played a GH game, will I be really frustrated, or are there different difficulty modes to learn on?

The level design is pretty confusing.  I know I got lost a few times (especially on the mission before the last one, I fucking HATED that one), I wish they just put in an arrow pointy thingy that tells you where to go, the game is on rails anyway, it's not like it would ruin the immersion. 

They did put in an arrow pointy thingy.  If you take too long to get to the next checkpoint, it pops up on your HUD with a little measurement of how far you are from the waypoint.  I used it frequently on level 7...

Yeah I noticed that if I took my sweet ass time, the game started to tell me where to go.

Here's another question . . . I just sent my 360 back to them . . . the DVD drive was making chainsaw noises while reading discs and only 50% of games would even load.  Will they do anything to try to fix the RROD pre-emptively while they have it for repairs?  I will be none too happy if I get it back and it RRODs right before Christmas . . .
I purchased mine Oct/Nov of last year by the way . . .

From what I've read at the xbox.com forums, all consoles sent in for repairs have the new heatsink and epoxy used on them to prevent over-heating issues.

I have one of the new HDMI-enabled Premiums with a manufactured date of 7/4/2007.  While it does not have the new Falcon chip, it apparently has a new heatsink and a better method for attaching the chips to the MB.  So far, I've had no problems with it.

One thing I notice is that for the people who stand their 360 upright - you completely block one of the cooling vents on the box.  How that one passed the design phase is beyond me.   I also keep my 360 very ventilated and not stuck in an enclosed shelf.

Also, Cortana said that they made it through just as the portal collapsed.   They would have died in the Halo firing explosion.  The "some of us made it" comment was for the crew they show drifting in space when that piece of the voice-over plays.  Why they did not appear back on Earth, I don't know.

I was reading Wikipedia about the Halo 3 story and their portal that did not lead to Earth was attributed to the Ark portal not being stable by the time they had gone through.

Just finished solo on Heroic.  I'm a fan of the Halo story and I liked the campaign for this one.  I agree that level 8 sucked, but for me, the worst part was the god damn brute hallway in level 2.  I spent forever trying to clear that.

Overall great game.  I'm loving the MP as well.  Bioshock is my GOTY still, but I'm glad to have played through this one.

unfortunately, the 65nm doesn't appear to be in all of the halo 360's, just the more recent lots, 764?  not sure where i read it in detail so the first two digits are fuzzy.  sorry about that.  also note that the cpu is the only piece using the 65 die at this point.  the gpu is also a big part of the heat issue.  from what i've read, the new units do run quieter and cooler, so there is an improvement.  unfortunately, you can't check the lot until you open the box.  just get the newest build date you can find.

as far as the size, i've got the elite and while i don't think i'll use it for video, it's nice not having to worry about demo space.  now that they all have hdmi, it's not worth it.  certainly not with the smaller cpu.

You should be able to check the lot on the white label on the side of the box.  My July 2007 box shows the lot number on the side.

Titanic was fun.  Leonardo died.
I can't be the only one who cheered and was almost thrown out of the theater by a bunch of weeping chicks....

I said out loud 'he said 'don't let go bitch'!' and got a bunch of dirty stares.  the whole sinking was the best part of the movie- i've watched the second disc of the movie many times when I need a perk me up.

You guys do realize that the old lady was just making up the whole thing.  Right?



The Titanic didn't really sink?  eek icon_wink

I really liked Undying, that game scared the crap out of me and the setting really pulled me in.  I played the demo for this last night on the 360 and I should have known how bad it was after watching that 10 minute intro to the game and characters.  I got to a point where I was in a cave and I couldn't even tell what was wall and what was floor and I figured I'd had about enough.  I'll be passing on this one.

The Scarab fight was truly epic and fun!

So for all you Halo vets... How do you beat the Brute chieftain on level 2? After you clear the hangar, you're headed for the barracks, and there's a corridor which is packed with brutes. I can handle the brutes, but I just cannot kill that chieftain! Is there an easy way to kill him? Can his hammer attack be dodged?

By the way, I'm playing on heroic. I finished on normal, and the ramp up in difficulty is pretty big I think.

It took me about 40 tries to clear this hallway on Heroic.  Just keep moving.

I'm not sure I understand experience points.  I've played in 29 online games and haven't earned a single point.  I don't play in ranked games, just with friends, and I'm not sure how one earns points or a higher ranking.

Is this not possible just playing in gams with friends?

I think you only get exp when you play ranked or social?  IIRC, the tool tips on the game types says which ones give you exp.
