I'm only 70-something xp away from Brig Level 2.

I am honestly torn between the idea of ranked SWAT and Snipers come May. Classically, SWAT is my favorite, but I've grown very fond of the sniper in H3.

You missed out Maroma. Last night was fun. Has anyone checked out that chick's MySpace page yet? I think I was the only in our group that didn't get a friend request from her.

BTW - Nades & Spades on Blackout was by far my favorite game of the night.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

She was average looking from her main pic, but I'd have to add her in order to see any more pics.

That was classic though, haha.

Nades & Spades on Blackout was great. It's a good 4 person map.

Here's that crazy game I was talking about last night.

last night was some of the best halo i've had in a while, Nades n spades on blackout was the best single game of multiplayer i'd had in a long time. I'm glad we got a semi meet in before GTA. Maroma you really did miss out

Fatty-O-Ramas!


My favorite O-Rama so far! Stogie has the flag as I launch the Warthog out of the opposing base.


Bogues gettting some help defending the hill from Fatty, and in return Fatty gets a 'nade to the dome!


Team Duel: Dakar (driver) and Crosbie (gunner) in the first 'hog, and yours truly (driver) and KB (gunner) in the lead 'hog.


This reminds me of the scene from Saving Private Ryan, way at the end, when Tom Hanks is shooting the tank with his pistol and it blows up all of a sudden. However, I didn't have the help of tank-buster planes, but whoever weakened this Hornet must've been a half-bullet away from the kill.


Dakar tea-bagging the hood of my Warthog. Fatty looks at the camera and says WTF?

Awesome O-Rama! I'm gonna save that one.

You guys want to meet up again tonight? I predict this thread will be dead for awhile once Tuesday hits.

Fatty, awesome o-ramas as usual, that first one is definitely in the top 3 fatty-o-ramas, although i like the one with the dual warthogs. It seems like a goodbye post card as i retire my halo disc for a while.

I'm bummed I missed the meetup! Looks like you guys had a blast. This weekend was the no-gaming weekend (except the few minutes I'd get when the gf was out). I did it mainly because I knew I'd most likely be gaming like an addict this week and weekend with GTA4.

Well, maybe we can meetup tonight? I'll be gamin it up tonight. If you guys want to do some Halo, I'm down.

I'm not working tomorrow, but I may go out drinking.

Either way I'll be down for Halo late-night.

Yeah, let's get everyone together and have one final night of Halo before GTA4 is released tomorrow.

I wonder what Andy thinks of our Grand Theft Auto madness. I'm curious if the game would be friendlier for him to play than Halo.

edit: I haven't heard chuckit weigh in one way or another on GTA. Perhaps he abhors its appeal to the most depraved of human addictions?

I don't particularly abhor it, but none of the GTA games have ever really interested me all that much. The little that I've played them, they seemed kind of meh. It's entirely possible I haven't given them a fair chance, but there have just always been things I'd rather play.

Yes, you lush. It's just as well, because it was my worst performance ever, save for the last game where I put on a pretty good impression of a Commander.

No, whatever little the internet does to help you understand a person, led me to believe you'd have this general stance.

I have to say it's probably integral that you like racing games, too.

Racing games? The Internet leads you to believe I'm a woman? That's quite odd. (Nothing against women. It's just all the chicks I know play nothing but racing games and Guitar Hero.)

Nah, aside from Mario Kart, I don't like any racing games.

Oh, you're a dead man.

What racing games do these women play? And no, Mario Kart does not count. Because that is for girls.

Heh. They like any racing game somebody happens to have handy. If you're sitting there with a console and a pile of games, they'll go for the first racing game they find. If you take them to Dave & Buster's, they will immediately drag you to all the racing games. That's what I mean — they just generally like "racing games."

Personally, I just find them kind of monotonous (the racing games, that is, not the women). I can enjoy them for a little while, but I get fed up with them easily because the feeling that I'm just driving in circles overcomes me eventually.

I have a feeling the generation gap weighing in heavy on GTA for me, even with all the hype I have no interest in at at all.

I have played Forza and Far Cry a little on the old xbox just before I got the 360 and H3.

The ever present lag does not help, this is compounded with GTA being released. I heard that MS doubled its server capacity to cope with this? I was playing a RP match earlier <swords> and the lag was so bad I could not even get a single kill.

I shall stop complaining now.

Interesting, interesting... I can't say I've ever done a Dave and Busters, and the girls I hang out with pretty much have no interest in video games, outside of Rock band and the occasional Wii sports event.

You probably don't mean literal driving in circles, but if you do, you're playing the wrong game.

Second, I wonder what you opinion on driving in real life is. If you get any enjoyment out of it, that is.

Understandable, you've probably done all the killing, crashing, and prostituting we have yet to...

Well, MS servers don't control the lag. They're there to deal with the the millions of people who will be requesting games. Once in game, it's all about the players again.

(I'm not sure whether the games are hosted on MS servers, but if I recall correctly, pretty much nothing is. It's part of the reason the LIVE fee is so outrageous)

I have a 6M connection at the moment, but will be going back to a 3M connection next month, as I can not justify the cost of the tiny speed increase over the 3M.

What connections do you guys run?

Good times last night guys. I'm glad I got some NN Halo in before the GTA orgy began. Even though we only had a few peeps, I still enjoyed myself.

I'll try to get some pics up if I have enough energy left after GTA tonight.

Well no, I had just gotten a strange private message from some strange dude, and I was going to ask about it here, but I figured out what was going on. Still a strange private message from a strange dude: "sorry if this sounds really weird ...but do you think it would be possible if i can get a pic of ur girlfriends hand ? ...i would reallyy appreciate that ...thanks man"

Its in response to a thread talking about bad fingernail biting habits.

Out of context its just creepy.. but even in context its still pretty creepy.

I'm not done but I already feel a Halo 3 jonze kicking back in.

All in all GTA multiplayer was a diversion at best, not nearly at the addiction level H3 Matchmaking causes.

Meet up soon?
