    Halo 2

    Anyone pick this up yesterday? I grabbed mine after work. This game is FUUUUN! The XBox live is extremely nice, and not very laggy, which is typical of most online console games. I can tell I will be wasting MANY hours on this game.

    I'm resisting picking it up. Too much to get done But I did go over to my brothers and put in about an hour in single player. Dual weapons is pretty fun! Good game.

    Picked it up Monday night. Single player is pretty cool. Not amazing. Half-Life 2 will almost certainly crush this single player experience. Multitplayer is pretty cool. Is slow getting into a match though. Several minutes of searching to get started. Hopefully this is just because its a fresh release. The XBOX Live intergration is terrific though. If anyone wants to play a match, my gamertag is crowdozer.

    According to XBox Live server stats, usage has been growing exponentially every few minutes since the game was released. I think that's the big problem right now.

    Agreed. Right now, Halo 2 is killing time until HL2 next Tuesday. That doesn't mean I don't like Halo 2 - I've played it for about 3 or so hours thus far and have really enjoyed it. I will most definately have it finished by next Tuesday though.

    I've decided to take a valuable vacation day from work on Tuesday and just immerse myself in HL2.

    Anyway, this is a Halo 2 thread.

    I really like how the gameplay mechanics are exactly the same as the first game. It took me about 30 minutes to get used to the controls again, as I'm a PC FPS player, so I had to adapt. The dual weapons system is pretty cool, but I don't use it that much because I like to have access to my grenedes. I use grenedes a lot.

    I've got a long way to go. Stupid job! Stupid need to have income to eat!

    Wow. I'd be curious to see those stats? Are they publicly available?

    I was on xbox live last night, and the lag was minimal. Much better than Socom that's for sure. I'm sure after 2 months, when the free subscriptions get canceled, the amount of people online will drop dramatically. I read they made close to $100 million in the first day of release, and 1.5 MILLION copies had been reserved. That's freakin amazing!

    Just expressing my views. In all honesty, I've very much looked foward to it, but since I can't play it, bleh.

    I'm a single 25 yr old male who's not in school and works a 40 hour week as a web developer. I watch very little broadcast television. (I DVR the few shows I do watch) I hardly every drink (alcohol). No girlfriend (doh), no kids (meh), no homework (woohoo)... I've got free time out the wazoo. So I'm either playing video games, watching LotR, or driving around (just bought a Mustang which I love).

    If you like something, make time for it. You might not be here tomorrow to enjoy it.

    These things are much easier said than done. Regardless, I guess it's just me trying to juggle many things at once.

    Probably not yet, but I'm sure it will be. You do get two free months of xbox live with it.

    That's not bad but after the time expires you are slapped with a monthly fee for it.
