Just what if Halo 3 becomes a big smash like Halo? Halo 2 was good but I think that it leasted affected people as much as the first one, and when it comes down to it the only thing that Halo 2 dwells on in popularlity is it's online capabilities. Halo 3 also introduces a long-lost friend, the Assault Rifle! I'm so glad it's back, I love random blasts at random things(mostly enemies), it's fun. :P I'm also hoping Halo 3 is as good as Halo 1's offline and as good as Halo 2's online... if that happens, Halo 3 will in my mind, dominate the gaming business... just too bad Gates is quitting in 2008.

What's your predictions for this game?

Halo 2 was both better in some respects and worse in some respects. Given that 3 should actually be finishing up the series plot, instead of falling into the 'bridge' trap of so many sequels, that'll be a mark in its favor. Plus, they should have been able to iron out any wrinkles from 2 that made it less enjoyable, and reincorporate anything from the first game that was missed by the fans.

Gates isn't really responsible for Halo. Bungie is; they made Halo for PC before they were bought by Microsoft. I think too many people look at Microsoft and forget the people who truly worked on it: Bungie. They were developers long before the XBox.

Anyway, I think Halo 3'll be good. It's gonna finish up the story, which was a problem for Halo 2, and I enjoyed Halo 2's Campaign as much as Halo's. I had no real problems with either. Did both on Legendary. 'Twas worth it.

Just for the record, the Halo 3 trailer's realtime footage. It's not prerendered, unlike most trailers. This means that what you see there's what in-game'll look like.

I go to Bungie.net, I know who makes it. Were you giving that information to others because I have no idea why you said it, and when you said "Bungie" were developers way before "Xbox" you probably should have said long before "Halo".

And to Ludvig, "quitting" was too harsh of a word... not as serious. Here's the article I picked up from.

I just sorta gave out general info, since your statement about Gates implies that Microsoft's somehow responsible for Halo, which they're not. Well, except for maybe resources on Halo 2...

Unless you're talking about the realtime footage dealy. That's just there for people who wanna come out and say "That's not REALLY what it'll look like."

So...wait...Gates is "stepping down..." then what? Retirement? Or will he just lurk around the water cooler?

I believe that Halo currently suffers from Trilogy-itis. Here's how it works: whenever a video game series is first started, the first game will blow everybody away. The second game comes around, but, despite adding new stuff and such, winds up as a disappointment; a good game, but a bad game in the series. The third one, however...blows everybody away. It's not far off to say that the third one's the best in the series. Mind you, a series doesn't necessarily have to be a trilogy to suffer Trilogy-itis. Here's a list of series so far with the disease:

Metroid

Zelda

Mario

Devil May Cry

Metroid Prime

Metal Gear (in general, since I count MGS as MG3)

Castlevania

Metal Gear Solid (that's what they get for starting the series over! They get double Trilogy-itis-'d! Hah!)

And now Halo.

Of course I left some series off, but meh. If you look at that list, you cannot deny that [game series part 2] was a disappointment after [game series part 1] but was instantly redeemed by [game series part 3]

The multiplayer for Halo3 should be great. There will probably be more maps and modes to add some more action. I never really cared for the Halo or Halo2 single player, so unless they change that a lot I am not interested in it.

Umm... Microsoft is the reason Halo is on Xbox... dude. Other than that, they have nothing to do with Halo as you said. Besides that, I'm a Halo fan, not a bungie/microsoft/bill gates or whoever type of fan. I have no idea what Bill Gates will do or anything.

I share the same type of view Kal, Halo was definitely a blow away for Xbox, I never started to play it until a year after it came out then I was all obsessed with it.

Halo is one of the main reasons that the Xbox and the new 360 have been so successful. Without it Xbox would not be as popular.

Yes, I've actually gotten to a point where I actually refer to my XBox as my Halo-machine. That's what it's mainly there for.

Hah, I actually didn't play Halo till 2004. That was when Halo 2'd come out, and a friend of mine had a party where we played good ol' Halo. After almost another year, I shoved almost half my cash toward an XBox, some controllers, and both Halos.

And as far as I'm concerned, Microsoft doesn't deserve credit for Halo at all. They may have ported it to the XBox, but they're not really responsible for actual development.

As for the 360, I've heard there's really not much for it right now. My friend that has one bascially uses it to play Halo 2. Mostly.

Well I dont know about Halo 3. Sure Halo was fun even though it was nothing really new. Its the only reason I even touch an Xbox =p

But well the third one could only be that....a third one. Me? I like stuff exciting and innovating, something new and excititng. So I would just have to give it a maybe.

When I get a 360(when...) and when this game comes out I'm going to play it nonstop, I absolutely love Haloish destruction with warthogs and scorpian tanks... and other stuffs. Hopefully they make different variants of weapons too, that'd be awesome to have a double-bladed sword or something. xD

A double bladed sword? That would probably be even more over-powered than the regular sword. Despite all the new 360 games that are supposed to be great, everyone I know who has a 360 uses it to play Halo2. I find this very amusing.

The same is said for the XBox.

Let's face it; Halo is Microsoft's Mario. Early on, Halo was the only game exclusive game worth buying, and there are lots of people who bought XBox solely for Halo (I was almost one of them). I dare you to find someone who owns an XBox and has never owned or played Halo.

Wow... I just thought about that.... you're right, everyone I know that has a 360 has Halo 2 and plays it on there. :shock:

Not only do I not know any Xbox fan who hasn't played Halo... I also don't know any Sony or Nintendo fan that hasn't at leasted tried it or played it to scoring browning points on it's graphics or how corny it is.

So true. I do not own an Xbox, but I usally go to my friends house on the weekends and we play Halo2.

Halo is basicly the foundation that Xbox is built on. That is likely one reason why it did not fare too well in Japan. Shooting games are not as popular there as they are in the United States.

I have ONE friend who has a 360 and doesn't play Halo 2 all the time on it. Well, now he might, but the last time I checked, he was playing Oblivion on it.

He still uses it to play Halo 2. He doesn't have Live, though, so that'd probably be why. Though Everyone I know with an XBox or 360 has one or both Halos.

What I wonder is what vehicles they'll have in Halo 3. Halo featured few, and you couldn't get Wraiths. Halo 2 allowed boarding, which was very nice, plus added the Gauss Warthog and Spectre, and replaced the Covenant Dropships with Phantoms. I'd like Halo 3 to feature a human equivalent to the Ghost. It'd be nice to run in an ATV type thing with Assault Rifles or something in the front. Especially considering that the Warthog evolved from an ATV thing.

One thing I hope to see changed is how the vehicles control. I know that a lot of people like how they are, but I always found driving vehicles to be very frustrating.

The only vehicle I have a problem with (as far as controls go) is the Warthog. I hate driving it. On the other hand, I don't play teams, so it's practically useless to me anyways. I agree, though; humans should have something like a Ghost. I don't like having to either board one or shoot the Elite off first to get the vehicle that's worth a damn in most scenarios.

The warthog became alot of better in Halo 2, better control and grip. One thing the warthog in part 1 that isn't in part 2 is the awesome destruction derby awesomeness, running into eachother with warthogs and sometimes going over 50 feet in the air somehow, it was so awesome.

I miss the Covenant transports in part one, and if I'm right, they were called "Bandits".

The Warthog in Halo was a bit faster, plus bit slipperier. They got slower, but easier to handle in Halo 2.

Covenant transports? I think those were just called Covenant Dropships in Halo. Halo 2 replaced them with Phantoms, plus introduced the ground transports...Shadows, I think.

Wait a sec...do humans have ground transports? I don't think so...

Play the second level in Halo 1 on Xbox, Inyu, one of your marines refer to one of the covenant dropships as a "bandit" as they try to flank you. I've heard it about a million times and it's stuck in my head. xD

And yeah, Halo 2's warthog being able to blow up while you're inside of it is fun too... woo hoo...
