Didn't that die in nuclear fire with Halo 2 Vista ?

What I meant was, Halo stopped to be on PC because Halo 2 Vista was a massive failure. It is highly unlikely you'll ever see a new Halo on PC again.

I don't know what compelled MS to make Halo 2 and Shadowrun require Vista.  Whoever thought a console port would increase sales for an OS by being an exclusive for it is an idiot.

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Pretty much.  Anyone with half a brain was avoiding Vista like the plague at that point in time.

Halo was ORIGINALLY a PC title, until Microsoft bought Bungie and decided to make it their Xbox flagship game.  Utter bull****, but there you have the reason why Halo: CE was released on PC well after it was available on Xbox, why the same delay (but worse) happened with Halo 2, and also why we'll probably never see another Halo game on the PC again.

Wasn't Halo a Mac game before M$ bought Bungie ?

Correct.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

...since M$ created 343 Industries to take over the franchise.

Reach was the last thing Bungie will do with Halo.

more ontopic, i finally got halo 2 on PC since i now have win7.  vista requirements aside, it's a flat out EMBARRASSING port.  they didn't even bother to change the interface.  there were still pictures of XBOX buttons all over the place (including ingame QTEs).  the graphics looked like ass in several places for some unknown reason.  keyboard/mouse controls were horrific.  i don't know what the hell they were doing in the 3 or whatever it was years it took to release, but it sure as hell wasn't refining for PC.  all they did for the port was make it physically able to run on a PC.  i honestly feel cheated and want my $15 back.
I like to stare at the sun.

Obligatory "if you didn't feel cheated, then it wouldn't be a M$ product".
