Whether or not you are into everyone should check out the Believe, The John-117 Monument. That is one hell of an impressive diorama. I think it is hands down the best I've ever seen. They ran a short commercial featuring footage from the diorama during the Patriots and Chargers game last night. I wonder who gets to keep this sucker? Bill Gates maybe? :P

I'm sure it cost Microsoft a pretty penny to commission that one. I've cycled through this thing so many times now, I really like the videos and the first-person accounts. I think this could potentially be the best promotion I've ever seen for any movie or video game.

Only 7.5 more days now. I can't ******* wait. :)

Well, it's officially here. Went out and got my 360 last night (just kept putting it off and off  :P) and I'll be going out after school with friends to buy the game. I can't justify missing class and making up work for a video game.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Also got a pack of that Target Exclusive Haloclix Arbiter/Chief set with my Limited copy. Apparently it was free to anyone who bought H3 at Target, regardless of whether you preordered it.

Beat the campaign just a few minutes ago. I loved it, easily my favorite of the series. Spoilers below...




















Loved how the end was a homage to the Maw. Although, needless to say, I'm glad there was no time limit.

The Flood were interesting. In Floodgate, they're fairly easy to kill. In the second to last level, they're much, much harder. I especially hated those wallcrawling scorpion/ranged guys. They really got on my nerves.

No! Miranda and Johnson die! It was nice to see Truth's ass handed to him, courtesy of good ol' Arby.

Make sure to stay tuned after the credits, there's a nice little scene if you're patient. Master Chief lives! Leaves a small possibility for another sequel, too.

Assault Rifle was neat to see back in the Chief's hands. Sucks that the clip had to be cut in half, same with the Boomstick. Gravity Hammer was amazing to use. I loved being able to blast away entire squads of Grunts and Jackals.  ;)

I just did the dumbest thing and stayed up all night playing Halo 3. But then again, all you guys know.  ;)

Sad part is, I had an awful night. That's OCD for.

Dude! I'm a Halo fan as well, but just got LIVE. Hit me up with your gamertag (by PM) and let's play a game!

I finally made time to collect all of the skulls last night! Now I need to go back and play on a harder level and unlock more of those acheivements and sweet sweet armor!! (I've only played in on normal)

I probably should have. :P

Had a great run last night though, but had to stop for Battlestar.  >:(

Played some Halo online with Ant this weekend. Can't wait to do that again.

So should we try to organize a JD Halo night?

Any nights not good?

I'm available for Tuesday and Friday nights as well as just about any time on Saturday with given notice.

It would be cool to have a group battle.
