As most of you already know, Halo 2 is going to be released for PC, via (a nasty, but not unexpected ploy) Vista. However, I have just read PCGamer's look at Vista and Halo 2 and

spartan will entertain any questions one might have technically, visually, grammatically, over Halo 2.

How about you just post some ****ing link to this story?

On a different note, I thank FireFox for pointing out to me how to spell "****" properly when I misspell it in my posting rage for having this kind of a thread brought to my eyes.

Now I have to do your job for you and actually locate a link to the story.

if you want to (and if it's legal?), do you want me to scan in the story in the Mag?

and that only talks about Vista, not about what the difference betweeen Halo 2 Xbox, and Halo 2 PC is like ;7

PCGamer does

I'm beginning to wonder if spartan and dekker are the same person, just different personalities in the same head...

It's not on XP?

:sigh:

It's just that, I have this rule of my own in that I do not play FPS games on a console. PC is still more precise IMO, even if you don't have the privilege of a laser-based mouse.

Halo is one of the universes I have yet to visit. Not sure if I want to though... I'm still on the MW side of things despite my quickly-fading interest in that series...

See what you've done now?

Deepblue thinks you're over-enthusiastic for Halo.  Deepblue.

Personally, I don't think you're missing much.  On the plus side,  I guess they might do a decent conversion this time - Halo (1) was pants.

That makes me lucky for not buying the original Halo then.

I've got a friend who's a so-so fan of Halo. Sometimes I don't even understand what the jack he talks about, let alone the videos he shows me sometimes... tohoho...

Point taken. :)

I played it a year ago.

On a 100 dollar Xbox.

Halo was great for PC. I still play multiplayer (on my 56k :( ) and there's quite a few servers. There's only one problem I see with Halo, one problem PCGamer also found:

The gameplay is too constricted.

UT2004, you've got double jumping, wall jumping, and low gravity maps. Battlefront II has rolling, as do many other games. Halo, you can only jump once (albeit fairly high) and it feels VERY restricted.

That's my only querk. Halo 2 is a little looser, and you get double-fisted pleasure...

Go to Prague, or the Banana bar in amsterdam.....................

*snaps back to the game forum*(

sorry about that, at the time of Halo one, no =one really cared about dodges and stuff, Halo 3 by all rights of current genre evolution, should have wall hugging, rope hangin, split jumping, cardboard box wielding, corpse hiding, costume changing stealth while tap dancing naked on a hard boiled egg..........




Maybe not that last one, but you understand.

Dekker.......wow, just wow.

But yea, Halo 2 is a lot looser than Halo, which is a good thing considering everything you have to blow up in Halo 2 compared to Halo...

Maybe in Halo 3 they'll make a game that's not derivitave of a PC game I played five years ago.

Then again, maybe not.

Halo series = overrated. It's a PC shooter on a console.
