As of typing this, I'm now in possession of a Premium Model Xbox360 and am making room on my gaming center for it, by putting away my Gamecube. I have already prepurchased Halo 3 and will be there at midnight to pick up my copy and play all night. Crushinator has informed me of 4 player co-op campaign mode online, so I wanna know who's up for this. I'm currently re arranging my room so I haven't hooked up my 360 yet. But once I get my Gamer tag I'll have it up.

Yeah, I was going to make a halo 3 hype thread, but this will do. For those of you that are out of the loop on the biggest game this year, get with the program!

Most important features:

-Online Co-Op for 4 players. Yes thats right, you can play through EVERY stage of the single player campaign with up to 3 buddies on Xbox Live. Also instead of the halo 1-2 style "2 mysterious master cheifs" the 2-4 players are the Arbiter and 2 new Elite characters with their own back story and looks.

-Campaign mode challenges and rankings. You don't just do the story now, there are actually sub-missions inside each stage with score-tracking and competetive play during co-op, plus worldwite rankings for high scores on XBL. Each chapter of the story has a unique meta-game mission to play. Clearing them and gaining certain scores will get you unlockable armor pieces, which can be used for...

-Customizable player character appearance. No longer are you limited to just 2 color selections and Spartan/Elite model choice. You can now customize your character's helmet, body armor, shoulders, and voice (male or female), and 3 colors (primary, secondary, and detail.) There are tons of different options for each part, and you can mix and match as you like.

-Tons of new weapons, vehicles, and new "equipment" such as land mines, portable shields, radar jammers, etc. All of which can be used in campaign and multiplayer mode.

-Online multiplayer. Of course the bread and butter of the game, all the classic modes from previous games return, along with some new ones like "VIP", where you have to protect 1 specific member of your team; "Infection" where one team "zombies" tries to kill and convert all the other team "humans" onto their side before the time limit is up. The playlists have been divvied up into "Ranked" and "Social" now, so you can jump right into the type of "crowd" you want to play with. If you just wanna have fun, and don't care about ranking up, want to fool around with ridiculous and hilariously unablanced gametypes, or whatever, go Social. If you want hardcore, pro-level, rank based play, you can go with the "Ranked" list. Also players have MASSIVE customization over the game rules now. You can change anything from gravity to powerup effects to team appearance. Its staggering how much you can change the game, which leads into...

-Forge map editor. Yes, built into the game is a real-time map editor, where you can collaborate with other players to edit maps on Xbox live, and play those maps WHILE you edit them, as well as save them for later to be used in regular or custom gametypes. Bungie will also provide webspace for you to upload and share your custom maps and games, and have a ranking system so the most popular ones can be downloaded by everyone.

-Saved films, replays, and screenshots. You can save EVERY SINGLE MOMENT you play halo 3 onto your hard drive, view it from any angle, cut, clip, and edit them into "films" and upload and share them online with anyone on XBL. That means every single player, co-op, and multiplayer match. EV-RY-THING. You can also cap high-res screens of any of your replays and upload them to the Bungie.net site so you can download them on your PC. This is the most exciting feature of the game to me. Being able to see EVERYTHING that happens in a match, from any perspective, reliving those "OMGWTF OWNED" moments, making fan-films. Combined with the forge, the possibilities are endless here.

It goes without saying anyone with a 360 MUST buy this game. There's no way around it. This will be come the new stomping ground for AT's online presence, come hell or high water!
Wiryu
I'll be on shortly after midnight as well. I really suck at Halo, but hey, practice makes perfect.

Kazicht

You whore! I was totally gonna pick that one up but wanted to play Armored Core Instead. haha
Nice man, my Gamestop is holding a contest, draw master-chief and I could possibly win a free Halo themed controller with a Master Chief Action Figure. Gonna try and win it!
Crushinator
Fuck yeah Kazicht! Awesome snag on the limited edition Xbox! sniperer.gif

Who is next to get at 360? (Donkey, i'm lookin at you!)
Wiryu
Niiiiice, we have a good crew building up here! That 360 system looks pretty sick. I knew they were out, hadn't seen them yet though.

Breaker! Invite accepted.

LOL CHILL.
I'll get one eventually...
Between now and the end of the year.
Henge
For the first time in ages, I am seriously considering buying a console.
Crushinator
Do it, Woe. Do it. Eat cat food for a month if you have to, so you can afford it.
AC9breaker
Yeah man, 360 is really an under appreciated system. imho its Dreamcast 4.0 Ironically though, I find I'm looking forward more into Call of Duty 4 then Halo. I think that game is really gonna be a Sleeper hit too.
tanshin
I'll have one someday.

Duuuude, whatchu talkin bout? 360 underrated? AC9Breaker, you are crazy. The fanbase is huuuge! :D

Tansheen, you should have one tomorrow!
DarkEpyon
No thank you.

Also, am I the only FPS hater here? I did toy with the notion of picking up a 360 earlier in the year though, for Blue Dragon and Infinite Undiscovery (I think that's what it was called). But alas, the consoles of this generation come with too much red tape, and in some cases, red rings.

Yes you are.

Even if you don't like FPS, 360 is still the best console choice for jip-jap weeaboo RPGS (and good RPGS too), it still has a better lineup than PS3 or Wii in that regard. And the new 360's out are the "Falcon" hardware redesign, so the RROD should be a thing of the past.

Naw, I'm not a big fan either honestly. I mean first person shooters didn't kill my family or anything, but I can live without them. I play Halo 2 sometimes with friends, but it's incredibly rare (we play Smash Bros about 98% of the time haha). I may get a 360 in the future, as there are some games I'd want to play (VF5 for instance), but I'll still be getting a Wii first. The game I'm most excited for is Smash Brothers. Halo is more like "meh".
Wiryu
I never cared about First person shooters, then I worked for a LAN where the primary game was counter-strike and started getting into them. I couldn't understand why Halo was all hyped up though. Halo one was alright, Halo 2 got better, but still only had it in multi-player, but with Halo 3 , i've played the beta(loved the team matches. Now I just need not to suck at the game.), watched a shit load of Red VS Blue, and talked with enough of the right people to let the hype hit me. I'm legit excited. ;)

Smash brawl will take presidence when it comes out, but I am stoked to kick ass in Halo 3! beigesmile.gif
AC9breaker
I wasn't an FPS player myself until I played the first Halo. Even then I wouldn't consider myself a FPS player cause Halo was really the only FPS I could play. Little by Little I gave them some chance and now I love them. Its really the social environment of the genres that have captured me. Competition in MMO's is a secondary objective.

Crushinator
I have to work tomorrow too :( But i'm just going to buy like 10 coffees and stay up for 48 hours or so. hangsmiley.gif
AC9breaker
LOL me too. I have school AND work tomorrow but I may just call out of work. So I can get some rest and study for an exam I got on Wednesday. I think we got enough skill to be able to beat the game before my first class though. which is at 8 AM.
Crushinator
Yeah, I think we just might be able to make it.

EDIT: Also this live action awesomeness: http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/last-one-stand...alo-sweeps.html

Well fuck, I didn't even feed the thought, but yah, i also have work tomorrow. Oh well, that won't stop me from being on for a few hours! ;)

Holy crap that looks freaking awesome!

Also, we should state this now, we're not playing on any difficulty less the Legendary.
DarkEpyon
Wow, that movie was great!

Interestingly enough, Halo 3 hits Japan the same day as the PSU expansion, not that this affects anyone here.

From now on, I should drive all the time.

ARRRUGUGHF FUCKING COMCAST!

After about 2.5 hours in game they decided to have a Cable outage. YEAH FUCKING AWESOME!

But I had a kickass time doing Campaign with AC, Wiryu, and DJ Donkey while it lasted! I love how there's the scorekeeping on the co-op mode, it adds an oldschool arcade competition feel to the game, even though you're all playing on the same team. Can't wait to get back on tonight when I get home from work! sniperer.gif

Me and Wir ended up duo'ing it. Ended up getting to chapter 6 I think? Then I had to bail and go to class. Wonder how many more AT peeps we'll have tonigh? We can have two teams running legendary and see who beats the game first!
