It seems they want to compete with some of the other Halo Stat sites.

Heh, cool, didn't even realize you could do that.

Of course I'm not surprised you beat me in plasma 'nade kills, but check out my ranked BR stats...almost averaging 3 BR kills per ranked game.

Has anyone else seen the teaser trailer yet? WTF? I'm still trying to make sense of it. "Halo 3 prepare to drop." Is this a sequel or a spinoff from the halo franchise?

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Xbox 360 Fanboy Analysis of Teaser

My .02$ after reading some analysis today, it seems like its going to be an expansion of halo 3 (game or downloadable content) possibly to be released in january, seems that you'll play an ODST (halo's version of the airborne) or maybe a squad of ODST (same troopers in the live action halo sequences ) i guess time will tell...


consider me excited

agreed, so we'll have two months to knock out as much gears as possible and then halo will re impregnate my 360

Assuming it has 4 player co-op, shall we form our future squad now?

Not to be a downer, but I thought bungie, at the very least, implied there wouldn't be campaign expansions?

Considering there are new skulls to be found on 5 new "maps" I think they were pulling our legs with a statement like that.

I have no idea what you're referring to?

Is this recent or old?

From KBs post. New skulls and achievements on maps that don't exist yet.

Considering there are no skulls on multi maps I'd say it's a safe bet we'll be seeing an extended campaign.

Ok, well my statement was from back last year, round this time. I'm not countering that this could be campaign, I'm saying, "Did bungie change their mind? Why?"

i think it was always a plan (you know they like to play games) it could also be a set up for the "next" game, with a extended campaign playing as ODST's could set up for an entire ODST based halo game (which has been rumored as a mix between Ghost Recon and Gears)

Well I played Squad Battle, won the match, now I'm a recruit!



It still says Brigadier when you get player info, but as of right now my highest rank for any playlist is recruit. It'll be silly to play TS with a room full of 45+ recruits.

I just realized bungie just did a rank reset without actually doing a rank reset.

That is lame.

Well if they completely reset the ranks I would cry like a little girl if I lost my bird.

It makes me want to play again, but ranking up is really only for show now (more so than before of course) since I have ranks in every scenario besides Squad Battle. In TS it says 44 (for me) and has a blank space next to it where I will eventually get a rank, but I've had such an impossible time ranking above 45 I doubt I would be able to win enough to get EXP to get a rank.....meh.

Played a little halo 3 today just to remember the good ol days, got a 150GS of new achivements (double double kill in one game, 3 assassinations in one game, 2 melee kills with flag one game, 5 warthog gunner kills in one game all needed to be done on legendary maps) Good times for sure.

Well Dakar and I (KB helped on a few games too) went 11/14 on a spur-of-the-moment Halo 3 night. A three and a half hour spur of the moment.


The night ended with an un-lubricated ass raping in One Flag on Valhalla.

Bogues left in a hurry suddenly after one match, my only guess is that his g/f demanded unsatisfactory sex.

Yes, I surmised it had to be a booty call.

He pulled the mic out a few times, which usually indicates gf calls.

1st: sorry to exit early (i know i left like a durango out of hell) but it was good to get a few games in

2nd: (which should be 1st) that is by far the FUNNIEST thing i've ever read in my entire life, haha. I don't think i've physically laughed out loud after reading anything in a long time but i've read it multiple times and you guys are ridiculous. Good work gentlemen, good work

3rd: so the story goes the girl did call (as you figured) and during which my xbox froze and i decided to go out to the bar for a while, upon return i read your comments. haha

Man, I'd feel like sek and I had accomplished a little more this weekend if XP was working correctly.

Better yet, I can't even log into Bugie's site.
