I F'N LOVE HALO. I think I remember Shiver saying he was getting the Beta, is anyone else getting it? A small review would be really great.

I know I read that you would be able to review a game with your team, using all sorts of things like bullet time, camera freezes where you can actually see the bullets, lasers etc. Should be just awesome.

It was just the friends and family beta that came out on Friday. Invitations were sent out to gaming journalists, Microsoft employees, and the like.

The real beta comes out Wednesday, for all the people that either won a contest on Bungie.net or purchased Crackdown.

Halo one will be better than any halo to come after it. However, I will probably end up buying a 360 just for this game sadly.

P.S. I bet I'm the best Halo player on here.... any one want to challenge?

I was a level 30 in Halo 2 online when I had it.

I'm in the same boat as you...no future halo games will ever stack up to the original. I'll also be getting a 360 just for H3 (and GTA4).

I'm getting the Beta. I just hope it is better than Halo 2. I was once amongst the elite Halo players community, quite frankly, Halo 2 irritated everyone in that group. Most of the "pros" only played it for money, not for the love of the game like the first game's MP.

The first Halo was so addicting it was scary.

Honestly, I hate Halo and while it isn't just for nerds, all nerds love it. I never really got into Halo at all. The game I've spent the most time playing is definitely any version of BattleToads or Mortal Kombat. I don't really like new gen games much. I prefer my NES and SEGA, thanks.

Nerds hate halo unless it's on PC. They especially hate Halo 2.

I think it is safe to say that I am the best Halo player here. Unless someone else has played with all the top players, and was once in the top-10 in the Team Slayer rankings...

Yeah, I played way too much. Though a lot of it is just natural. I can pick up any FPS and play at a solid level.

There are plenty of great games on the 360, besides Halo.

I used to be really good at Halo, but I stopped playing for a while, and when I started to play again, I wasn't the same. Either that, or everyone else got better.

No I never won any money. Only the top-20 or so players win money. They keep a close knit group of elite players, and it tends to be the usual suspects who win tournaments. I've played with, and against, all of the top players though.

Everyone that was legitimately good on the competitive level stopped playing matchmaking long before the mods, standby and bridging took over. The game types were not set up in an intelligent manner for balanced play in the first place. At the upper levels it was exclusively BR start, no radar, on small-mid sized maps.

Shiver once Halo 3 comes out you and me are throwing it down.

I never got into Halo 2, but I got pretty ridiculous at the first one.

Halo 1 dominated my life. I learned every trick in the book, every nuance, every strategy. I never had the best pistol, but I could hold my own.

Can't wait to get my hands on the beta.

Just wondering ... I got into the beta via the "rule of 3" and received an email confirmation shortly thereafter. I've since received NO further correspondence from Bungie. Did anyone else get in via this route and if so, were you notified recently about the beta release?

Yea, 8th and 9th grade I played a ridiculous amount. I played it online through the lan thing, but when my brother went to college I didn't play as much and never got into 2 since I didn't have live.

Do you lot really think Halo 1 muiltiplayer and gameplay was better than Halo 2? Yeah you have sidewinder and that place with the levels and 2 sides (can't remember its name, but the maps on Halo 2 are a lot more diverse and extensive. I admit duel wielding took some of the edge off if, but the extra variety of weapons and vehicals made it so much better. I think the problem was that Halo 2 wasn't that much markably better than Halo 1, that it was disappointing, but it was still a progression.

I'm not arguing about the single player. Halo 1 had a so much better storylines and well designed missions than Halo 2. On a side note did anyone complete Halo 2 on legendary on their own? Myself, being mediocre, can't see how anyone could be good enough to do it. I did missions 2 and 3 with someone else, but every other one we didn't have a chance.

Also what sort of things are people hoping for for Halo 3. I know there was a thread a few months ago where we were talking about it.

The MP in Halo 1 was much more balanced, fair, and conversely fun than Halo 2. I could go on a Toonster-esque rant about it if I chose too, but I have bigger fish to fry.
