Well I copped this idea from all the Doom III nuts, and decided this is our arena for those who are faithful to Halo (Best XBOX Game EVER IMO) and anticipating the release of Halo 2!

I already have my collector's edition reserved!

I feel the most exiting feature will be it's online multiplayer, and the ability to use two guns at once!

I have to admit I discoverd this game rather late, I heard alot about it, but I did not get an XBOX until early this summer. Halo was one of the games I bought later. I messed around with it on a display at Best Buy, and it looked really cool! Also alot of my online freinds swore by the game, and all of them assured me, that I would not be dissapointed. What moves Halo? Simple story, yet gripping, excellent cut scenes, but the game moves at a fast pace, even during the cut scenes you have some movement. And the action itself is non-stop and fast paced! You play this game for the exitement and action, but I have to say, the story is decent and original as well. Master Chief is the coolest cat to ever walk down the pike since Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid!

I got it pretty cheap, yet I have not stopped playing it since. It is a VERY fun game, and hard to find a point to stop!

Halo 2 will be even better! I am keeping my Live subscription just for this game alone!

I'm getting my live account updated the day Halo 2 comes out. :D

I'm also getting two tvs and 2 Xboxes and 2 friends around to have a whole day of Halo 2 gaming.

I'm not even going to sleep on the day it comes out, I'm gonna be waiting outside the store from like 6:00am in the morning just to get the first copy. Thats how exited I am. Heh... If I can get my account updated I'll be sure to arrange a game between everyone who has Xbox live on Lucasforums. That would be pure ownage! I can't wait to hear all your voices..

And Grooves, Solid Snake is boring compared to Master Chief now that Halo 2 is coming out soon. :D

Good point! Also, my gamer tag on live is in fact Darth Groovy, so go ahead and add me to your lists, I will be playing Halo 2 like there is no tomorrow.

IMO, Halo 2 will be the most popular Live game ever!!!!

Just think of how much money Microsoft and Bungie will be making, they'll be rolling in it, even more than they are now!

I'll be sure to add you to my list the day Halo 2 comes out, because I don't really have any games to play with on Xbox live so theres no point updating it now with no games. :|

Ah well, I look forward to talking to you Groovy!

So how cool is this, there's a midnight release for Halo 2 at the place I reserved it, which is in Greeley, an hour and fifteen minute drive from Boulder where I live. So monday night I will drive and get it, but then I'll have to turn right back around and return to Boulder because I have an 8 am lab :crybaby:

I've had Halo 2 reserved since February of 2003. :dozey:

I don't have Live yet*, but I may in the future.

I'm still hoping that Bungie adds some sort of multiplayer feature for the lone wolf, ie. bots.



I saw an interesting post at the gfaq's halo 2 forums regarding multiplayer play w/ai.

Im pretty sure there won't be bots in halo 2,but im also pretty sure there will be some kind of multiplayer mode for people that dont have live or friends (bungie said they 'Have heard the cries of those fans and are currently exploring ways to make the game fun for them as well."

I am thinking they may insert some kind of "create-a-war" mode. In this mode you could pick a certain amount of covenant troops and vehicles...and a certain amount of human allies and vehicles, pick any of the multiplayer levels.....then have a a huge battle.

....This would allow you to create and customize your own epic battles in a variety of ways (weapon type, vehicle type and number, playing as elite or MC, amount of human soldiers, amount of covies, AI difficulty such as heroic or normal, what map you play, etc.).

......of course, you would also be able to utilize the new multiplayer features, as if you were playing a regular MP game (vehicle jacking, dual-wielding, playing as an elite or MC, etc.).

.......Then, Bungie would not have to deal with creating the advanced AI for bots...they could just use the AI from the marines and covies in campaign mode. And the cool thing is, you could, of course, play as master chief and fight along side your marines, ODST's....OR...you could play as an elite fighting along side grunts, brutes, hunters, jackals, and other elites. And Bungie still would wouldnt have to do any tweaking because it's alll basic, single player AI.

Just imagine that huge battle in campaign mode that you have always wanted...but then being able to customize it and play it over an over. Then if Bungie really wanted to impress people, they could make objectives or goals....like both teams try to destory a certain thing in the others base...or one team tries to attack and destory, while the other defends.

I think this would work absolutely flawlessly and should be considered.

Oooh, Halo 2! Sorry, can't resist. There goes my exile.

I just hope It's really coming to PC too...

I saw the trailer enough to make me buy this game as soon as it's there. On PC that is.

You can also hold the Covenant energy sword, and when you target someone (Like homing with a rocket launcher), you leap at him and make an instant kill!

At leat, i think i read that somewhere...

Doomie
08-06-2004, 01:09 PM
@ ET than perhaps the official site IS wrong... I'll see if i can find that, but i'm sure it was that. I mean, choosing between a normal attack and an instant kill is pretty easy, especially if you'd jump towards your target so you won't need to come very close. But we'll see.

I also read (And saw) that you could be Elite in Multiplayer.

ET Warrior
08-06-2004, 01:27 PM
well, the way you target with the Rocket launcher is by putting your targetting reticule on the target...so...that's what you do when you shoot things anyways...so it's not like targetting it would be hard. I think the point is that if you do the lunge and miss you are screwed because they'll just shoot you while you're recovering from your missed lunch. The other attack is just a basic melee.

And yes, you can be an elite in MP.

A runaway ghost is hard to hit, but the rocket launcher was my weapon of choice in halo, I railed people in warthogs all the time.

Curt-Man
08-06-2004, 09:31 PM
the lock on thing with the rocket lancher really disposes leading the shot, but whatever, still cool, the ghost has new cool ground effects and has a boost thing which is awesome, you can blow off parts of vehicles and scenery, and there is a new human staionary turret.

Halo is my favourite game of all time.

I highly recommend you read all of the books before Halo 2 comes out, because they are truly excellent and really add to the whole Halo experience.

The Fall of Reach - Prequel to Halo
The Flood - The game story from the view point of all sides including the Covenant
First Strike - Covers the story between Halo 1 & 2

I have my Special Edition Halo 2 pre-ordered, and the day it arrives through my letterbox, is the day I dissapear for a very long time. :)

Doomie

'Let's paly catch the plasma grenade!'

*Sticks*

'I knew there was a flaw in this game...'

But anyway, i also heard there will be ambient life, so maybe we can go hunting rabbits. Also, the boarding function is one of the things i'm most enthusiastic about. When a arthog or a ghost comes near you, and it slows down, you hop on, kick the driver out and take his place. Just cool.

Also, ghosts will get boosts and warthogs will get horns.

EDIT: hadn't lexx jsut posted before me, this would've made a lot more sense, but okay...

Another EDIT: shouldn't there actually be a general Halo thread? So we can also talk about Halo before 1998, or further plot speculation...

I love trying to kill a ghost. My favorite technique was standing out in the open, luring the ghost to run over me. Half a second before I get smashed, I crouch beneath it, turn around, and *hopefully* apply a plasma to it's arse.

But in Halo 2, that'll all change. Just imagine the final show down. You vs your mate, hes coming at you in a ghost and you kick him off. This is gonna be so awesome.

I think it'll be excellent, but can't help feeling that it's been overhyped, like most major releases lately. I'll probably not be able to play it on live since I don't think my dad'll let me subscribe. Eh, maybe I can convince him to let me buy the starter's pack and use the subscription card. BTW, can anyone tell me if it's possible to play live wireless? I just don't want to have to plug Live in.

Yes there is, the Wireless G Adapter (http://www.gamestop.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=801748). Too bad it costs 100 dollars though : \

I want the original Halo now. I played it at best buy and it rocked my world. Even on the tiny screen it was awsome. The only problem is, my parents won't let me play M-Rated Games. Even though it doesn't bother me, it bothers them. So I have to find some way to by em without them knowing. And them play them without them knowing.

I am on the level where you go deep into Halo, looking for Captain Keyes, and you stumple upon those alien mutant thingies, and the little guys that look like cabbages leap at you! So don't spoil it for me JUST yet. Sorry I discovered this game so freaking late!

Er acrylic, my point was that if there were two Halo threads, it would be a little much especially with the 'mission success' and the 'conspiracy' thread, that would make four threads about Halo already...

Oh, by the way:



'Halo' isn't the only Halo made by the forerunners, so there is a chance we will visit another one in Halo 2, despite the first one getting blown up.

Damn, you know what?

I went to Gamestop yesterday, and traded in some games. I traded in some game I got from friends: Kirby for GBA (got $14 for it). I traded in Mario Party 4 (Got $18, bought it for $5), I traded in Max Payne for GBA ($9, paid $5), Tony Hawk 4 for XBOX ($4, Paid $10 :(), and I also traded in MGS 2:Substance for PS2 (I got $14, paid $30 back when it first came out), and I traded in the DVD Twister (Got $4, got it for free back in the day), I traded in Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution, and got some money, i dont remember.

But all in all, it equalled out to $70 store credit. I boguht my self Skies of Arcadia Legends. Now, I have $50. So I dunno what to do with it? Pre order Halo 2 or Get some great games, that are like $20 each. :confused:

Umm, yeah, my friend let me borrow the Halo books. I just finished The Fall of Reach today, and I started The Flood today. I have never ever been beat in a Halo game...and I play some pretty good people. I play with 400 shields or no shields, nothing in between. I easily beat the first and last levels on Legendary, all of them on Easy, and a few on Normal.

BTW- Darth Groovy...they aren't cabbages...those are the parastic flood that infect living or dead bodies.

I used to call the flood "those weird zombie things."

But it's so pointless when your shields are at 400%. It makes the sniper rifle nearly completely useless, pistols can't kill for crap, and assualt rifles may as well not exist :rolleyes:

And no shields is COMPLETELY retarded, a glancing shot in the foot with a sniper rifle kills instantly.

The 400m shields helps your attacking skills...makes you do overkill on everything...and the Sniper Rifle actually needs more skill to take down an opponent.

The no shields really helps defense skills...I barely ever die in a no shields match. As for the Sniper Rifle...oh well...

I love the swamp. I really do.

I went to blockbuster and saw that they had halo in stock. I thought back to when I played it at best buy. I told the truth/lied at the same time. I said that the only blood-blood was on the walls and the floor from before you take control. But I lied and said that you guys told me that. She said that if she had any problems with it I would have to take it back. Started playing it, showed her that the covanent bled rainbow goo, and she had no problems with it.

I must say, this is quite possibly the best game ever. I am soooo asking my mom if I can buy it, and preorder 2. And get live.

I was so excited when I got my XBox back in october. But then I started to get less excited because there werent any games I was willing to get anymore. Then I got a Gamecube, and Im hooked on that. I guess Im more of a Mario guy. But once Halo 2, Fable, etc are released, then it'll be awesome to start playing the XBOX again. And Now, as for my PS2, I havent played the thing in half a year.

So I guess just about everyone I care about in the Swamp is going to be having a Halo 2 online extravaganza via Xbox Live when Halo 2 comes out?

If so, count me in.

I've decided to screw upgrading my computer, since it does and it will run fine anyway, and get a Xbox.

They didn't merge pistol and assault rifle, they upgraded assault rifle to battle rifle. Wich features Auto and Semi-auto fire and a scope.

Thoguh i'm not sure about auto. But anyway, the pistol was a very favorite weapon, i'm sure they'll keep it. Every army needs pistols nowadays...

Hit the enemy with a full on plasma shot, then finish off their shield depleted bodies with the handy smg.

No they merged em. The assault rifle has a 3-fire burst mode and when you zoom it has a single shot mode.

I don't think the game designers care what weapons was whos favorite. Atleast this way the rifle'll get used.

No, not that. I guess my dad just wanted Linux on the XBOX!! Internet surfing on it too, with a keyboard and a mouse, as it is a PC.

And Kain, I think it was the Sniper Rifle and the Assault Rifle merged...the battle Rifle. I read that in my friend's OXM.

They shouldn't take out the Pistol, maybe just nerf it a bit. The books have the Pistol, so they need it!!

Well your friends OXM lied.....because you can see it in action in the trailers, and it's DEFFINATELY combined assault rifle pistol combo.

A German Magazine called XBox Zone will have a Hands-On of the Halo 2 Beta in it.

Here is a Summary of the new Infos:

New Maps:

Midship - A Covenant Cruiser.
Ivory Tower - The Top of a giant Skyscraper.
Waterworks - The Stalagnites on the screenshots are destroyable, they can even destroy a Tank if they fall down.

New Weapons:

Covenant Carbine - A Covenant Battle Rifle.
Covenant Energy Sniper Rifle - As the name says.
Brute Shot - A mortar that fires 4 grenades that explode on the second impact.
Pistol - You can use 2 at the same time, thats the only info on this weapon.


Vehicles:

Banshee - The Banshee can do "Loopings" and it can spin around if you hold down A + Directional Buttons. A Banshee can be boarded while it is flying.
Tank - The tank has a new control layout.
Boarding - Only Brutes and Elites can board vehicles, the Grunts an Jackals don't are intelligent enough to do it.

Controls:

The white button is a Team Speak button now, the flashlight is no more. The Directional Pad can be used for Tricks in combination with the A button.

XBL:

- There will be a ranking system.
- There will be DLC, including new maps and "more".
- There will be a Feature called "Virtual Couch", you can play with a buddy and if he leaves the server you will automatically follow him.
- There will be Sword Only gametypes that are really cool.

Thats all for now.

Bungie hasn't confirmed it. If they did, I would have posted it.

I prefer a little speculation. And I think it's entireley plausible for Bungie to put the pistol back in. Of course I hope they tone it down, making it an average weapon instead of the fearsome beast it became in the original.



Besides, all the good info comes from German mags none of us have heard of.

I wonder how we're gonna board a Banshee. I mean, warthogs adn Ghosts seem clear to me: You jump on and kick them out, it's an opn cockpit. But the banshee's, you'd first need to get them to the ground (though in MP, there are guys that try and run you over with it) but how do you kick them out?

(is that what they're called? I haven't played Halo XD) anywayz, the demo dudes playfully beeped its horn and this one guy from the crowd (in EB) goes...

"FULLY SICK MAN, IT'S GOT A HORN!!"

Doomie
08-15-2004, 05:21 PM
As i was saying when LF was down (Damn it):

That's because the horn's a new function for the WArthog in Halo 2. Though his reaction was very exegurated (SP? I know that's totally spelled wrong)

Anyway, it's mostly people on foot trying to get a ride in stead of drivers wanting a gunner, so it won't be that useful...

Guys, it's just concept art. It's not an ingame shot. It was done by a female member of the team who left Bungie, and she did that wallpaper as a leaving present.

Please Note : In case you didn't read it above - this is a purely fictional creation, done for fun for our fans. This has NOTHING to do with Halo or Halo 2. This is not a picture from Halo the movie, it's not a screenshot from Halo 2, there is no desert camo in the game... this is purely a work of art inspired by Halo and the feedback of our fans. But you gotta admit.. this is totally badass! (it's in the Halo 2 wallpaper gallery because it does use the underlying 3d model of MC from Halo 2, that's all)

Yes, i heard his name was John-117 or something. At least, that was his codename. I also read that without his suit, he should be able to run as fast as a warthog, uphill...

By the way, if you look up John 1-17 in the bible, i heard there's a character description of the chief... But i got this from a site where they're investigating everything Halo. And i mean Everything. They seek something behind it all, and they succeed pretty well...

Gah!! Your words torture my mind, you, you, you...mindless people of LF. His name is: John. His codename is SPARTAN-117. They call him Master Chief SPARTAN-117. And, read all three of the books. Not just the one during the game. I'm on the third one right now.

It is like the world becoming a communist world he was taken from his parents when he was very young and was replaced by an identical clone while he was being chemically enhanced with strength, agility, and better vision. Which made the Spartans were the only human enemies that the covanant seemed afraid of. And he is the last one, the last hope of the human race on the Covanant's Holy war with the humans of Earth.

Not true. He isn't the last Spartan left. Read First Strike, which covers the story between Halo 1 & 2 and you will see.

I personally can't wait to see what happens to my favourite Spartan (apart from John of course) Kelly SPARTAN-087. At the end of the book, she was taken on a secret mission. I believe the secret mission has a very important role in the story of Halo 2.

You should definately read them in order...

Also, this is from the site (for the lazy people):

- Making the Game: Six Video Featurette
- Visualizing the Story (Concept Art, Early Level Design, From Script to Game, Narrated Storyboards, Character Tests)
- Bonus Materials (Trailers from Halo 1 and 2, Cut Scenes, Commentaries, Inside Bungie, A Bungie History, Before Halo, The Making of Halo 1, Gameographies)

Back in 1998, Halo was the first RTS with Ragdoll physics. And at some point in the game, you could ride native dinosaur like creatures around Halo. Halo also used to be very damaged, with pieces missing from it and stuff... It's amazing how much it's changed since the beginning...

That's because it's a VIDEO GAME. As far as video games go Halo has a pretty motivating story, sure there aren't any SUPAR OMG WTF twists, but overall it takes you on a pretty good ride. Of course the books will be better, and decently written book can tear circles around a well done MOVIE as far as story goes, and absolutely DECIMATES a video games story. :dozey:


I have Halo 2 Limited Edition reserved, I should be getting it at the midnight opening on November 9th :cool:

Today is the day the ilovebees website has been counting down to.

The site has given out coordinates all across the USA, where payphones will ring at a certain time, where a password must be given by the person who picks up the phone.

Fans are going crazy. Speculation on an early release and a demo are rampant.

Beware people. The end has come.

No, I'd PWN everyone. I play 400 shields and no shields, nothing else. The 400 shields help in offense, no shields help in defense (greatly). And, I have been playing this game for over a year now. Everyone thinks that they are good, a bit after just playing it. They end up being PWNED and not being able to get a kill on me. That seems like your case.

Which makes me feel better, because I am better than THAT guy is at such games.

Unfortunately I have not had the unique pleasure of playing Halo on Multiplayer, let alone Halo 2.

My online games as of now are Call of Duty, which I am not great at, but getting better.... UT2K4, not great, but not terrible. Then there is JA which I have good days and bad days, and then there is AVP2 which I am just terrible at....

08-28-2004, 11:31 AM
Hmm, I'm not sure what 50% health means with no shields, isn't that for shields...?

Oh, and in that video, anyone notice that it was shields only? Maybe this is a new option for Halo 2? Or, maybe that is an old HUD for Halo 2. I noticed the new friend indicators, and this is what I got: yellow is for when they are attacking, red is for when they are being attacked, and an "X" is for when they are dead. Normal is when they are none of the above.

Also, when you double-wield, it gives you the crosshair from the gun on the right. The guns now actually can lay against a wall, rather than always be flat on the ground. The Sniper Rifle has a zoom of 5x and then 10x. The Battle Rifle has no numbers whn zoomed, so I assume it is 2x.

The Plasma Rifle looks realistic, and the plasma weapo ns have new sounds. The Ghost doesn't have that annoying whine to it, when it is on. The Warthog sounds clearer and better now as well. You can also see your feet if you look down. The armor has green and pink plates on certain areas as well.

The one other thing I noticed was that...this dude sucked!!

Just an update to anyone who cares about this I love bees stuff.


The mystery has supposedly been solved. The .wav files on ilovebees.com are supposed to be listened to in a certain order, adding to the plot of Halo 2.

People think that these .wav files are describing earth before the Covenant invasion.

That's it. No demo, no early release, no nothing.

It was fun while it lasted. Sure, maybe Bungie played off insane fans desire to play this game. But it was damn fun trying to figure this crap out when August 25th rolled around.

This (http://img90.exs.cx/img90/5272/HALO_Holy_Combat.jpg) definitely deserves recognition. It may be off by 4 years, but it's still great.



Regarding Halo, it seems as if the Pistol from Halo: CE HAS been remodeled and tweaked. It's now going to be known as the Magnum, which will do less damage and have fewer bullets per clip (10 for a magnum, as opposed to 12 per the 'pistol') along with no zoom. It IS said to be dual-wieldable.

No more three shot pistol kills....

Yeah, the Magnum looks a little non-descript, but I'm just glad it's been toned down. The pistol made the original Halo seem a bit unrealistic (if you can apply that term to a game) by being able to snipe people with a handgun half the map away.

Plus, it's a beta build. I know for a fact that everything will look better. For example, if you bought Halo after E3 and it had the trailer of halo 2 e3 on it, watch it, then watch the little making of. It shows the end part where all the elites get dropped down ODST "HellJumper" style, and it's much much more detailed.

BTW:I bought Halo:The Flood Today. I read 100 pages in under half an hour. I love how it shows the game from the perspective of the helljumpers, Keyes, foehammer, and the covanent. That's friggin awsome :cool:

In Halo: First Strike, they get new pistols...and Kelly dual weilds them. They have auto-zoom, and more firepower. Maybe, from that book to Halo 2, they downgraded it...I guess. As for the Battle Rifle, in the book it was called the Assault Rifle, as the Spartans weren't told the new name yet by Dr. Halsey.

I expect you to be a regular when that game comes out. I will be trading in much need sleep for long hours playing Halo 2 on live. Prepare for the insomnia!

Also, hope you didn't change your gamertag, Treacherous Mercenary, if you did, pleas pm me? I am going to whore this game like there is no tomorrow. :p

I plan on playing so much Halo2 I'm honestly worried that my grades will suffer terribly, which is bad because they're already less than stellar this semester :(

Spoilers alert..

Rumour has it that Blood Gulch is in Halo 2.

Edit: Don't visit the GameFaqs Halo 2 forums! There are threads there which reveal the whole storyline.

I think I heard somewhere that theres a Halo 2 demo on the US version of OXM. Can anyone confirm this?

just did a search and I got nothing, the closest thing to it I got was people talking about if there was one coming out on august 24.

:( damn

Bungie has said no demo will be realesed until Halo 2 has been released. That was 2 months ago though...

Mex
10-22-2004, 06:52 AM
On some other forums one guy said a list of demos. The thread was about Halo 2 and he said "ONE SUPER SECRET DEMO THAT YOU CAN'T MISS" so it just might be Halo 2. I also heard a magazine or something talking about a demo.

The game comes out in less than three weeks, you've waited YEARS for this, I think 2.5 weeks won't kill you :xp:

Mex
10-22-2004, 07:15 AM
I know, I just wanted to know if there was a demo. :xp: I really gotta get my live working before November the 11th, I keep on getting "Cables not connected" error. :indif:

If you're getting the cables not connected then you probably have a faulty cable. :dozey:

That, or you don't have your cable plugged into both your Xbox AND the internet :xp:

Mex

I've tried over 5+ different cables, and I do have it plugged in thank you very much. :xp: I'll ring my ISP up and yell at them, I bet they'll want me to pay extra or something.

Nov. 9th, I hope retail stores don't run out fast on those pre-orders! :eek: I may be working that day, so I can't pick it up until after 4 PM. Decided to pre-order retail instead of online.

This is a good opportunity to tell eachother our gamertags so on the day of release we might bump into each other.

Mine is : Redria. Look out for me on November the 11th.
