I spent quite a bit of time last night trying to get the Mongoose Mowdown achievement.  I'm sure that many people were talking sh*t about how I was driving around on a vehicle with no weapons....but I couldn't hear them Tongue

Word on the xbox forums is that the new Falcon 65nm chips are making their way to stores as some people have them in their Halo 3 branded 360s.
11526  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: October 01, 2007, 09:24:07 PM
Can we play ranked games with fellow GTers?  I'd unmute voice coms to be able to do some team work with people from this forum.

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.

Soda or Coke - Northern California.
11529  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: October 01, 2007, 04:42:43 PM
The military ranking is affected by ranked.  I've gone up to Sergeant - Grade 3 just playing ranked games.

It also keeps a seperate number rank for each playlist.  So, for Lone Wolves, I'm level 14 atm, but for Team Slayer I'm only level 5.  So you can still play with people in similar skill levels for each individual playlist.  You'll see their military ranks though, so you can tell if they maybe played a lot more in a different playlist.

EDIT: wanted to add again that I don't use voice coms at all, so the game is fun for me.  I couldn't take 3 seconds of some idiot talking internet-shit.  With it off, I'm just playing the game with no worries.
11530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: October 01, 2007, 03:39:14 PM
I've been playing with Random, but I turned off my voice coms, so I don't have to hear anything but game sound.
11531  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: October 01, 2007, 02:50:38 PM
Ok I am totally hooked on MP now.  Been playing tons of Lone Wolves and Team Slayer.  Campaign is ramping up after that crappy mission 2 as well.  I'm playing on Heroic and except for this one miserable halllway in M2, I am enjoying the difficulty.

so if you can change the difficulty in game, how do you do so?  I haven't seen an option

Start game > click on Campaign > click on Difficulty.
11533  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: September 30, 2007, 03:31:29 PM
I've unlocked a couple of pieces of appearance armor in MP, but I never saw any indication that it happened.  Does anyone know what levels have unlockable armor?
11534  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: September 30, 2007, 05:58:20 AM
Heroic is kicking my ass.  Oddly, I am loving MP though, so I haven't gotten too hung up on it.
11535  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: September 28, 2007, 07:27:42 PM
I was wondering if the sound is that way because I use HDMI, but don't have a 5.1 sound system.  I'm just using the TV speakers atm.
11536  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 Impressions (No Spoilers) on: September 28, 2007, 02:25:06 PM
This week has really been busy for me, so I'm only in mission 2.  It certainly doesn't live up to the hype for me, especially after playing through Bioshock already this year.  It's basically the same as the first 2 Halos, just with a face-lift.  I do enjoy the universe though, so I will be playing through for sure.  The meta game has me interested as well, so I'm sure I'll try for points after completing.  I'm playing through on Heroic, so that I get a longer experience out of the game.  The last 2 I played on Normal and they were cake walks. 

Online has been fun.  I have voice coms turned off, so that might be the reason slywink  I can't aim for crap with a controller so I get owned pretty hard, but it's fun to screw around.  My gamertag is LE08877 (the 0 is a zero) if anyone wants to group up for some ranked matches.

EDIT:  Does anyone know if there's a guide for the UNSC Campaign Report?

What is the campaign meta game and what the scoring all about?

I don't really want to play Halo 3 with asshats, so my gamertag is LE08877 the 0 is a zero, somehow they could not release the one I made 4 years ago to use with the 360.

Picked mine up at lunch, will play when I get home tonight.

I think this came up in a thread before, but there is actually a 48 Live Gold trial card in the box.  This is in addition to the 48 hours of free Gold to everyone thanks to Best Buy this weekend.

If you don't go to the store, MS is replacing them for free via mail:

Halo 3 for me.
11545  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 reviewed on: September 23, 2007, 10:53:36 PM
Reviews aside, if anyone has played Halo 1 or 2, then I'm pretty sure that they know what they're getting into with Halo 3.

Hey all, I have a question about the play and charge kit...can you plug it in overnight and let it charge, even with the console off?  Thanks!

I believe this was a typo.  The sunday ad (and an email sent to registered BB customers) shows that the wrong TV was marked at this price.  They stated that they will not be honoring this price on the 50".

EDIT:  Oops, I was thinking of a different brand.  Here's the email I got:

As a valued Best Buy customer, we want to inform you of an error that will appear in the September 23, 2007 Best BuyTM ad.  On the front cover we mistakenly listed the price of the 50" Panasonic Plasma TV (TH_50PZ77U- 8501711) at $1799, before $90 savings.  We intended to advertise the 42" Panasonic Plasma TV (TH-42PZ77U-8501757) at $1799, before $90 savings.


Best Buy will not be honoring this price on the aforementioned 50" Panasonic Plasma TV.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience, and we will offer a $100 Instant Rebate on all Plasma Televisions from Sunday, September 23, 2007 through Saturday, September 29, 2007. This Instant Rebate will be deducted from the price you see in the store, including our regular sale prices.

 

Thank you for your understanding.  We look forward to seeing you in our store soon.
11549  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 interactive manual on: September 23, 2007, 05:08:39 PM
Yeah I don't understand the 3 hour line-up thing for Halo either.  It's not as if any store you go to isn't going to have copies piled to the ceiling. 
11550  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orange Box question on: September 23, 2007, 05:04:00 PM
Also for those of us who already have HL2 and Ep1, you can "gift" your versions that come with the Orange Box, if you buy it.
11551  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 discs come pre scratched on: September 22, 2007, 06:30:30 AM

They seem cool, but I have no interest in these games either.

Thanks to all for your replies!
11554  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GRAW 1, 2, or R6:V? on: September 20, 2007, 08:24:20 PM
Hello all.  I used to play the OG Ghost Recon games on the PC, but after a couple expansion packs I fell out of the loop.  I think I tried a demo of R6 back in the day and I couldn't even get passed the waypoints screen. 

I tried the demos for these games on live and they seem pretty cool and noob friendly.  Anyone have any thoughts on which one would be best for a gamer like me?  I can do some tactical stuff, but excessive leading of team members scrambles my circuits.

Just finishing playing the demo.

Not bad but not for $50.00.

I can see myself getting this game when it is about $20-$30.

+1 I'm thinking the same thing.
