A Quick update for this weekend!

Two Things

1: Off to a tourney tonight @ Wentworth Institute of Technology run by C.V.G.C. (The Competitive Video Gaming Club) ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me luck!

2: Guess what weekend it is?! (No I am not referring to the Reach beta. Something a bit more important;) )


I FUCKING LOVE GRIFBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big News Week: Reach, Bungie,Activision, Did I say Reach?

News item 1:

ร‚ย Halo Reach Beta starts next monday, but the Friends and Family Beta Starts THIS WEEKEND, if you haven’t noticed from the insane amoutn of twitter traffic.

News Item 2:

Bungie and Activision enter into potentially Faustian Deal.ร‚ย  The Deal links the two for the next ten years, while this isn’t necessarily good/bad news, it is … interesting. We all know Halo is owned by Microsoft. That is not an issue. What is an issue are the shenanigans that happened with Infinity ward. Here’s hoping that Activision doesn’t use their sole bungie publisher power for evil. NOTE: Helping Bungie towards world domination does not constitute as evil.ร‚ย  Gamepro has an article showing some reactions to this news: http://www.gamepro.com/article/news/215016/tell-us-how-you-really-feel-activision-bungie/ร‚ย (featuring a tweet from yours truly:) )

News Item 3:


News Item 4:

ร‚ย Lastly I want to leave you with some people I am jealous of and must say are going in my book as micro heroes: http://gizmodo.com/5526334/halo-2-superfans-refuse-to-let-the-dream-die
Anyone who can keep Halo 2 online for that long with an original XBOX deserves Credit. I SALUTE YOU!


Post Halo 2, Pre Halo Reach, present Halo 3

This is a multiupdate frankly because I enjoyed the headline for it :P.

Halo 2 it was sad to see you go, but it was pure epic to see some people hold out for days due to maintaining connection to Bungie’s servers. You showed them you would not give up so easily. They said shut it down and you (to paraphrase the arbiter) responded with “Were it so easy…”. I was able to fit in a solid 9 hours and end at about 4 E.S.T., and only a 20 minute break. ๐Ÿ™‚ One downside:ร‚ย  X != reload especially not in Halo 3 Team swat while staring down the barrel of a BR

Halo Reach: I’m not sure if I could be more excited about Halo Reach. The new game types seem AWESOME (invasion ๐Ÿ™‚ ). The armor enhancements intriguing, and special editions DO WANT. ๐Ÿ˜€

Halo 3: What else is there to say. No speculations since it is the current, no breaking news since it seems to be staying for a while. So what else can I say other than…..



Have fun hiding from the living dead this Double exp ๐Ÿ™‚

Exactly how I remember it ๐Ÿ˜›

We had some good times in such a great place
fighting for all of humanity through the depths of space.
We met with Friends, We met with foes
We fought on Live toes to toes.

Good bye Halo2 on Live you will be missed. Here’s hoping someone sets up a way to continue the halo 2 online fight another way:)

Now who wants to get some Halo2 Lan going soon? ๐Ÿ˜‰
