Haha, for some reason I thought you were saying they just started developing it. I was ready to bust in here and start calling someone an idiot.

Yeah, its kinda old news that it will be out November 9th. I really cant wait to play, (dual weilding, woohoo!) I already preordered it.

I belive Half-Life 2 comes out on PC right before Halo 2, November 4 I think, unfortunately, I will need a new computer to play it and all the other next-gen PC games.

Have you seen the gameplay trailer? I had to take a flippin' shower after watching it!

Are they porting Halo2 to the PC any time soon?

Well, since Microsoft owns Bungie, i'd say not soon, the original Halo took over a year to come to PC.

I am very sure it will be done and this time around I am sure Gearbox is on top of it. Halo for PC was an afterthought but is pretty popular and I'll bet they are either working up a deal with Gearbox or already have one. I wouldn't be suprised to see it on PC by middle or late 2005.

I hope so this time. Me and my boy have been waiting forever on this.

I'm not a gamer personally, but my son put a deposit on a copy. That is good news. My kid has been waiting with baited breathe for a September. He says that the supposed to be on sale in November or December. I will pass it on to him. Both my sons playing together as a team just finshed HALO1.
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 7:58:38 AM EST
I can't tell ya how many times I have played HALO........a zillion? I just finished it on legendary for the umpteenth hundred time. Probably start ANOTHER GAME TODAY.

Oh, yeah!!!!! There is something about the way HALO plays, the graphics, the squeeking and the humor that makes it so friggin' addictive!

There are way to many good games coming out in the next few months.

Half Life 2 (bought this already through steam, should be gold on Monday)

Halo 2

KOTOR 2

Ghost Recon 2

This is going to hurt the AR parts budget.

IGN says Oct. 26, that does not seem right though.

ETA: Gamestop says Dec. 1.

I can't wait for Halo 2, I've had it pre-ordered for about a year and have been boning up on my Halo 1 skills again. I can run through the game on Legendary now and am in much need of part 2.

I wouldn't believe anything that the retailers say, as most of their dates are simply speculation.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 1:16:26 PM EST
Yeah, looks like it's been moved back ( doom3, I mean ) yet again. Well, as long as they ge the product RIGHT, that' all that matters.

I, too, was disappointed with HALO for PC...but I wouldn't mind trying it on a faster system than mine...mine just barely qualifies. I like having lots of extra option with the PC but I prefer the consol gameplay....I don't like "mousing"...I know there are gamepads and joysticks out there but I have a hard time trusting those, unless they've come a long wat in thepast few years.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 1:18:16 PM EST
I already pre-ordered mine. They told me November 9th, I hope that date stands!

I need a way to hook a keyboard and mouse up to my xbox. I can't STAND console controllers. You get better precision and more versatility with a keyboard and mouse.

Edit: HOT DAMN!
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 1:21:53 PM EST
Nov. 9 is a VERY solid release date. The discs have been in production for a couple weeks already. Not sure how many will be in the initial shipment...I've had mine reserved for about a year.

Still playing HALO, but can't wait for 2.

I'm not a gamer, but my son has ordered his copy of HALO2, and its coming in on Nov 16. According to my son, the HALO2 is so popular, that they are in the 2nd printing.

I'm not much of a gamer, but I liked Halo 1 pretty well. The badguys are too damm clever. I'm still stuck in one of the early levels in the harder mode (already beat the easy one). Did I mention that I really hate those Elites?

What was with the fake spring time release? I never got a straight answer.

I went to EB 1 day in April, I think it was, they had a whole wall filled with Halo 2 boxes. I took one to the cashier and they told me the release was delayed.


WTF kinda business plan was that?

I can't wait but, I have to work the grave yard shift that night.

A buddy of mine got a French language leak of this game a couple of days ago.

I was actually speachless after playing it for like 10 minutes. Seriously, if you even remotely liked the first one you will most definatly shit your pants when you play this.
Link Posted: 10/25/2004 6:23:01 AM EST
I hope they improve the assault rifle...stopping power and accuracy sucks. Needs a grenade launcher. They should let you be able to carry 3 weapons instead of two.
Link Posted: 10/25/2004 7:32:35 AM EST
The release date is 11/9. not the 16th.

The delay from April was because Bungie puts out games when they are done, and done right. April was never a firm release date.

Two guns is still max, but dual-weilding is possible with some weapons (John Woo style). No grenades when you have a gun in each hand.

The assault rifle is now the "battle rifle" and it has a zoom feature with single shots or in regular view it's a 3-shot burst.

Unfortunately the pistol (one of the most powerful weapons in Halo) has been downgraded to be more balanced in the sequel.

Saying theres no violence in GTA is like saying Kerry hasn't flip flopped and won 3 purple hearts truthfully.
