12081  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.

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!
12093  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: 50" Samsung DLP (720p) + Xbox 360 Premium + Halo 3 for $1080 on: September 23, 2007, 05:13:08 PM
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.
12094  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. 
12095  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.
12096  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 discs come pre scratched on: September 22, 2007, 06:30:30 AM
That's amazing.
12097  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Who doesn't care about Guitar Hero/Rock Band? on: September 21, 2007, 02:42:21 AM
They seem cool, but I have no interest in these games either.

Thanks to all for your replies!
12099  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.

I just played through the demo for this and yeah it was short, but it seemed pretty cool!  How as the final game, if anyone ever played it?

that log under the stairs had a keycode to get into the room behind the turrets.  nothing more interesting unfortunately.

it's both cool and annoying that cohen was optional to kill or not.  annoying because i missed an upgrade station, and cool because i could have left the freak alone.  i liked that aspect in deus ex and because it wouldn't break the game if you killed someone you weren't supposed to. 

i need to pay better attention to the audio logs as they've mostly been background noise during a fight and i have missed a lot of the details. 

You can play them over again!!!

I like the Halo story/universe.  There, I said it.  Don't worry, I'll show myself to the door.

I like it too!

Check out this link at Kotaku, it's a leak of some of the Halo 3 manual.  There's a couple pages of "The story so far..."

From an article on sfgate.com:

Quote
I asked the Apple people if they had plans to take care of new iPhone buyers who paid $600 for their handset. A spokesman said users can return their iPhones within 14 days but other than that, the company has no official plans to help other recent iPhone buyers.

EDIT:  I think from date of purchase, not right this minute!

I think I will pick up an Iphone when the price drop hits...I was waiting for something like that smile

I think this is effective immediately.  The apple store shows the new price now and no longer stocks the 4 GB model.
12117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 has Gone Gold! on: September 06, 2007, 03:44:44 AM
Bestbuy.com still has all versions available for pre-order if you are worried about not getting a copy in-store.

Hey all, I know there was one audio log I missed in the game, it was under a staircase right outside the office of that guy near the area where you make the EMP bomb (some descr huh?).  Does anyone know how you get under that staircase?  I looked forever and could never figure it out.  What did that log say, btw?

Yeah I had to get help on this one too.  There is actually a crawlspace over there that will let you in.  I couldn't really see it due to it being in such a dark area.  I forgot what was on the log itself but it was pretty useless and disappointing. 

Thanks Kevin.  I'll have to go back someday and see if I can find it.

Love how those women bolt after the punch.  Should of thought of that before you flew off the handle, eh?

As for Van Damme.....man I used to be such a fan when I was a kid.
