Halo 3 – XBox Live

halo3xboxlive.jpg

This is the only game worth playing on XBox 360, and if you don’t own one you should buy it just to play the game. Everyone knew that the game was going to be fantastic and enjoyable without any doubt since they put a lot of effort into the development and they kept delaying the launch to make sure everything was perfect. I couldn’t even believe that we were getting close to September 25th without any delay anouncements yet.

I even managed to get the game before it was launched to enjoy it in its entirity, but even when playing it I’m still amazed at the graphics and gameplay, and the ability to interact with the environment and all the new weapons and machines. Just so much to try and do, I know I’m going to replay the whole game at least three times with increasing difficulty since I want to see how difficult it can get and I also want to explore the areas even more.

The one part which I didn’t expect to be as good as it is was the multiplayer gaming, its nothing short of fantastic. I haven’t played a game this entertainging on multiplayer since Starcraft and Command & Conquer from the early days. The sheer enjoyment and smile I get from winning a round with other players and not knowing anything of them is just fantastic. At some points there are over 900’000 players online on Halo 3 multiplayer and there is a map at the multiplayer start screen showing where the majority are from, 80% are from the US and Europe, and the other 20% is the rest of the world. XBox hit the mark with XBox Live and its paying off now, and you can even enjoy all the game play with your friends, they have managed to work 99% of all the bugs from it which is great. The funny part is that any of my friends that I find online are only playing Halo 3, and it seems the only game worth playing at the moment.

    Fanboys even here! :D

  4. haha, i just got an email that Microsoft is hosting a game night at the business school, for halo 3!

  5. Don’t tell me. You got the limited edition with the helmut and stuff, right? Shawagtnee, now I wanna play :P Starcraft and Command&Conquer were pretty cool as well. I used to go around all day saying “A’7-knowledged” “Mission Aborrrt” and “Yes sirrr” tell that you logged on or whatever before the official launch date? Aren’t they like tracking you or stuff. I’d ask my brothers but it’d ruin my rep. as official know-it-all :P

    Sorry for the long comment (bas min zimaan mo im’7alyatlik long comment, didn’t you miss them? :P)

    Take care, yeah? Laters!

  6. Don’t tell me. You got the limited edition with the helmut and stuff, right? Shawagtnee, now I wanna play :P Starcraft and Command&Conquer were pretty cool as well. I used to go around all day saying “A’7-knowledged” “Mission Aborrrt” and “Yes sirrr” btw that was my little attempt at conveying a russian accent with nothing but words on a screen.

    That said, I’m curious as to how you got your copy of Halo goodness before the official launch. The manufactureres knew for a fact that Halo 3 was going to be in demand everywhere so they sent the copies to the stores, pre-launch with signs on the thing, saying don’t sell before the 25th. So each store had a couple of copies or whatever right? Now in the States if the store sold their copy, the store-owner could get into all sorts of legal trouble, but over here in Kuwait, no such thing, right? That’s how my brothers got their copies pre-launch. Is that how you got yours as well?

    Also, can’t microsoft or whatever like tell that you logged on or whatever before the official launch date? Aren’t they like tracking you or stuff. I’d ask my brothers but it’d ruin my rep. as official know-it-all :P

  7. Ok, seriously man. No clue why your thing just effed up my first comment but thank God for the backspace button.

  8. Xbox live rocks from day one, I am glad to seem more people online.

    Halo3 is a major improvement on halo2 on live.

    Level 13 now and Sergent Grade 2.

    come to die

  9. zombie-commando: My gamescore is pretty good for someone who didn’t have enough time play all the games I want. If I could I would be alot higher!!! lol!

    momo: You have no idea, but Gears of War is great as well!

    Carlsb3rg: yup!!

    vampire: I haven’t even played a PS3 yet!

    Wer3y: loool!

    laialy: ooohhhhh that would be fun! I would kill them all! looool! I’m that confident of my skillllzzzz!

    DnG: looool! Russian and the kid voice! hehehehe! I got it the same as your brothers from the depths of Rihab! Microsoft had lots of people logged in before launch becauase they gave away a lot of gifts and they had a lot of testers. No way they would even think of touching an operational system which is supposed to hold over a million gamers while its working. They don’t really care since only a few slipped out which is less then a percent and they kept the hype up. loooooool 3al long comment! looool!

    fadibou: You are always playing that god damn game! I need to get on top of it!! hehehe! You are way ahead, but we shall meet, I keep seeing your stats, I like to get up close and personal! lol
