I've seen them...and it makes me fear for my marriage! LOL  Between Halo and the new NFL Season...I'm in trouble!  ;D

i let my wife watch the trailer that featured the different ppl going about their lives before REACH.
i wanted to see how it would affect ppl not playing HALO. She didnt even know it was a HALO commercial.
She liked it. She told me that she wanted to know more about the story...
great commercial.

i still havent finished Halo3. ever since my info go erased i lost some interest (especially after i cant find anyone to play co-op with me) and I didnt buy ODST or HaloWars so i think I have Halo out of my system... but i say this before the game comes out.
hahahaha...once it's here who knows what i will do or how i will feel.
:)

good luck brother.

Well, I just fixed my Xbox!!  All it took was 8 screws and 16 washers!  WOOO HOOO!!  Microsoft charges folks $150 and some people charge $40 for a fix I did myself for around $5!   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I finished 3 and I was about to pick up ODST before the big red ring hit me.  I'll pick up Halo as soon as it comes out and pass on ODST now.

Have never played 'Halo'...   ever.


Which is unusual considering I followed the game in development for the PC long before XBOX became a reality.

Once XBOX became real, lost interest.

After all this time, is safe to say that the game became a hit?  :-\

I don't play video games, though I have watched some cutscenes from Halo. I'm intrigued by Halo, Mass Effect, Deadspace, and games like that because of how expansive their universes seem to be, and plus they have some neat websites.

I also like how some, including Halo, have made movies, animation, and also have books and comics. One that might intrigue you is the film Halo: Nightfall with Luke Cage's Mike Colter as the lead character Jameson Locke. I thought Nightfall was decent. I liked the Halo film Forward Unto Dawn. I think Nightfall had better production values, from what I recall, but I liked the Forward Unto Dawn story better. I've wondered sometimes if games like Halo and Mass Effect will be the Star Trek, Alien, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Wars for the Millennials and Generation Z, as the older franchises start showing their age and fading. Besides Locke, Halo also has another black character, Avery Johnson, that was the star of at least one novel.

Wasn't being completely honest about 'Halo'.
I've played the multi-player portions of 'Halo' but I have no idea what the single player campaign is or who the characters are, what the conflict is or anything.


I don't play video games...



I have to ask this 'cause I find this remark odd, even in this day & age...

How is it that you don't play video games?   ???

Video games have been around for some time.  Since the 1960s.  Video games are a legitimate form of entertainment and is unquestionably the future of world entertainment.


Hell, my mother even plays video games on her i-phone and she's from the Jim Crow generation one step from my late Granma.


Is it that you don't like video games?  What is it?   :-\
