MDK was a blast to play.

Actually, True Crime had dual-wielding. . .sorta. You could pick up two guns and use them both, but not independantly with the mouse buttons....

Doom 2 can be modded for dual weapons quite easily actually.  :p

Unreal Tournament also had a mod for dual-wielding.

 
Hmm. I'm sure Rise of the Triad (1994) had some dual wielding in, although I doubt whether the guns were independently controllable. Anything earlier than that?

Ok, so I think we've sufficiently mutilated spartan's comment. Anything else to talk about? :D

Oh,yea, I hope to God that they improve the PC netcode for Halo 2. Halo 1 had lag even on a LAN.

What's all this nonsense about the guns being independently controllable anyway.  I can't imagine a scheme for even doing that which would not be horribly complicated and unwieldy anyway.  Unless you mean being able to select them independently, which while being sort of novel really isn't all that effective, or all that new.  You could do that (albeit with limitations) all the way back in Goldeneye.

Like Red Faction II (2002) ?, the pistol at least supported dual-wielding and could be fired independently, with either mouse/keyboard/controller/etc.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Unreal Tournament also had a mod for dual-wielding.

The original Unreal also allowed dual-wielded pistols. Not independant firing  ...but alternate firing resulted in gangsta-style sideways shooting, biatch!

Rise of the Triad and Marathon, both released on December 21, 1994, were the earliest first-person shooters to integrate akimbo pistols. In Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.², this tactic has been developed further, now allowing the player to wield two different weapons at once, firing each one independently.

Wikipedia.. more useless info than you can include in a single comment.

Hah. I knew that without resorting to wankipedia :p well, apart from the Marathon bit.

 
The first time I heard about a game called Halo I was like: OMGWTFIMUSTBUYTHIS!!!111
But then ******* Microsoft bought Bungie and the game was produced for the XBOX, as it finally came out for PC in 2003 it was still an entertaining game. It just wasn't the OMGWTF feeling anymore, Halo was outdatet...

And now Halo 2 should come out for Windows? No wait... for Windows 'Vista'!  :mad: (Oh look Halo2 for PC, BUY VISTA YOU SILLY CONSUMENT! MWAHAHAHAHA)
Three years after it was released for XBOX, you know what? It will be outdatet too.
There are far better games in productions than Halo2 such as CRYSIS or HAZE or whatever...

Halo's indoor gameplay was very poor. One time, there was this room full of two or three hunters, except I just walked right past them in a hallway just outside the room. I mean, did Bungie actually expect us to bother with them?

 
What does everyone have against halo?  I played the first one on PC, and I loved it.  Is there something I'm missing here?

I've got nothing against it. In fact, I probably had more fun playing multiplayer on PC than I did on Xbox.
