I don't think it's all that bad really...they made an RTS from Halo so it makes sense I guess considering that Halo is such a popular game.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

^^Well, perhaps you're right, but still, I think they're over-stretching the franchise a bit....

What's so wrong on wanting to capitalize a bit more on a popular franchise?

Well, there is a such thing as over-capitalizing, the only thing worse at this point would be Halo Wars Lunchboxes. That is an example of over-capitalizing, certain franchises were only meant to go so far on advertisement for their products....

^ I agree. But Halo hasn't reached Star Wars merchandising level yet.

I agree; it makes sense, even if it is a bit capitalizing. Halo Monopoly would be too much, though.

Ahaha, this is awesome. Been playing a lot of Risk lately, and that seems like a fantastic way to make it more ridiculous.

Bravo capitalism. Bravo.

In fact, shame on you capitalism for taking this damn long to make this game!
