Don't blame me, blame nostalgic memories of the NN crew having hilarious times on H3, blame that sweet ass Forge clip from today, blame Bogues for bein so damn sexy.

Now I not only get to transition away from keyboard and mouse FPS to game-pad FPS, but floaty robot in space game-pad FPS.

Oh yeah, BTW, first couple of nights I am not even considering campaign mode. I'd rather cut my teeth in multi.

Dakar i apologize but i think fatty just stole the title of "quote of the day"

I think i'm on that train, and we need to set up some 4-player co-op action (Firefight/campaign),
I'm getting giddy like a school girl now...
I cannot wait for the first Dakar recap of multi (full of pictures), honestly those recaps and gaming nights made me read this forum on a daily basis, i think before our H3 meets i posted 10 times on NN'

Stogie
Fatty

I'm sure we can get Subie, Eurypho and Saint to join us.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!

Dakar bought it too, since now that I'll be playing he'll only have the comfort of his cold tears as lube without Reach.

I think he said that his crew isn't getting the game, though now maybe they will be convinced to.

I'm mostly excited for the first couple of times I decimate Jawbone. He escaped my torment for H3, now it is trial by fire.

Bogues, any word on apsolid getting this game? I hope not, since I hate someone on my level.
the bragging begins, see what you guys have done?

Oh Jesus, at least campaign would be good practice to reacclimate to the gay-ass physics, not to mention an opportunity to familiarize myself with all the new weapons and gimmicks. Errr, abilities.

I believe we had an unspoken agreement that if one if us cracked the other had to buy.

I guess so, but I didn't think anyone would show interest in that game.

I'd play H3, it'll be brutal, but I'll play.

Well, at least they'll be fresh stuff in Reach noone is used to yet, H3 has been getting mastered more and more the day we stopped playing.

I'll turn on the 360 and let your game choice decide the evening.

Jesus Christ this game (halo 3) is terrible. Anyone who ever complained about dying to the same weapon too much in MW2 will love this. It's a ****ing BR fest. Correction: It's a BR while touching the ground as little as possible fest.

Oh, I swear Bogues, if they didn't solve the problem of playing 2 on 5 thanks to quitters, I will come to Pittsburgh to personally kick you in the balls. 2 of the first 4 games fatty and I played we spent in hiding because our team quit out (But hey, the host migration works! Which is great when you don't want to play the match anymore because its so lopsided).

I can't wait til Euthphro realizes I'll bitch more playing this game than I ever did in MW2.

Halo is something I will never really "get into" due to Bungie selling out to MS. Yeah, I hold a grudge. **** them. I pirated the hell out of it, and promoted pirating it, because I hate them.

I'm assuming we're hitting multiplayer? I'll be on just after 8 pacific time.

Or will there be some 4 player campaign as well?

If there are more than 4 people then we'll have to do multiplayer.

One of the little "fun facts" that popped during matchmaking stated that if you frequently quit games early, you will get probation. Quit a game early during probation and matchmaking will be disabled for 15 minutes. It didn't say how long probation lasted.

Picked up my copy tonight. The line for the midnight release at my local GameStop was slightly longer than the line for MW2. I was surprised considering the MW2 line consisted of both xbox and PS3 users.

I want to tell you about the awesome time I had playing firefight but it's 2:30am. Sorry Fatty no screenshots tonight.

There's something I suggested during the days of Halo 3.

That just means Halo has more psychotic fans. Not surprising.

Picking up my copy at 10 AM, late as usual. I'll be on this afternoon, then again at night. I'm sure I'll see some of y'all out there.

I was impressed by how expansive some of the maps look in that video. Makes it regrettable the game only supports 16 players (as far as I know).

Still looked like they set-up several racing tracks of all things.

I'm definitely going to be sinking my teeth into Forge.

If I didn't have a meeting for the second night in a row, I'd be playing for 6 straight hours once I get off work.

Much needed. That, or a way out for the last guy or two on a team without being penalized for staying. There's nothing I hate more than 2(or 1) vs 4 because some team members chickened out.

There should definitely be a prompt to allow a forfeit.

So, all this talk is leading me to believe that the same shit is going to happen. And just watch - you'll be able to dodge probation by pulling the ethernet cord (or dashboarding) rather than quitting.

None. I'm not sure if I still have the font, and if I do its not handy. Not sure what you'd want, anyway.

i'm up for anything, i've never had a real sig in my NN career, so put my name in there if you can since i'll use it for the next few years (or until Halo: Master Chief strikes back or Halo: Just Dance with grunts, any of M$'s halo games)

Boooo...

Tonight sounds like a wash for gaming then, unless you can rally the troops for MW2. I don't think I can take another night of nothing but Social Slayer.
