When's Halo 4 Coming Out?

Yep, finished Halo 3 last night, less than one week after it came out. I finished it on Heroic because I'm a Hero, not a Zero. I thought maybe we'd all (try to) do Legendary in co-op. For one reason or another, I didn't get the achievement for finishing the second mission, but rest assured I will replay it tonight. The game doesn't seem to like when you mix co-op and solo campaigns. In other words, if you do part of Mission 2 in solo and the other part in co-op, you don't seem to get credit for finishing the mission for the achievement... and you know I'm an achievement whore.

For the record, I'm giving the win to Halo 3 over GRAW 2 in a nailbiter. The deciding factor: vehicles. I love me some Warthog action, driving or shooting. I love to jack a Ghost or Chopper. But maybe the best of all, take a Scorpion and blast the $hit out of everything in sight. If GRAW would throw in the occasional chance to pilot a vehicle (read: AH-64D) it would just be over the freaking top. I suppose having to travel by foot made each level seem so much longer than it really was. Oh well. Vehicles in GRAW 3 warrants its own discussion, but I still think it would be sweet. The gunride sections are good, but I wanna drive!

got through mission 3 of halo 3 so far (been too hooked on bioshock to play halo a lot), but bioshock has been having framerate issus a lot lately so when it does, i pop in halo 3. i'm up for multiplayer co-op.

Almost done with mission 6. Although apparently I'm a zero for playing on Normal Mode(cue J Ho ala MST3K movie: "Normal View, Normal View!"). I'm up for some multi co-op as well. Not sure what time tonight though as I have to run out with Erin for some wedding stuff. I'll check to see if anyone's online when I get back. I don't think the Halo series and the GRAW series should be put into the same category. C I know I sound like a broken record, but I think you'd like Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Let's you get your gun off and blow up stuff with an Apache or M1A1.

I will finish my second mission whilst you jerk around with wedding stuff. Now that fall TV has started I don't know if we'll have time to start tonight or not. We shall see, we shall see.

i MIGHT be getting home a bit earlier, looks like maybe this coming saturday if flights are available. i'll probably have TheMom stop at best buy on the way from the airport to pick up halo3, and i'm gonna do my best to catch up.

i'll have my share of distractions, i mean, i have a new truck i gotta drive, and i'm only on season 2 of 'house' (i'm trying to fix that on nightshift), but i'll be on soon comrades.

Finished mission 7 last night around midnight. Hopefully I'll finish the game tonight. Although there's a lot of shows and sports on tonight. The Wings open against the Ducks on Versus, new episodes of South Park start tonight, etc. Got home and started playing around 8. Played until 10 then it was time for Boston Legal. Then played some more from 11 to 12. I said it once and I'll say it again, "Man I hate The Flood."

HELL YEAH! The Flood sucks! Enjoy mission 8... and most of 9 for that matter. Also, get ready to test your Warthog driving skills. The game won't let you man the turret when it really counts... FINISH THE BEER!, er, FIGHT!, or something. Thank you.

I finished Mission 2 and got credit for it last night. Also found the Birthday Skull. Apparently when you activate the skull, anytime you get a headshot on a grunt, its head explodes in confetti and you hear kids cheering and whatnot. I have to try it out yet, but we are TOTALLY using this in co-op.

Speaking of co-op, with Z heading back possibly Saturday, shall we hold up and wait for him? We can still screw around in multiplayer or co-op on Heroic.

Back to my GRAW 2 vs. Halo 3 rant, no, I don't think they should be put in the same category either. I just mean I enjoy playing Halo 3 a little more than I enjoy playing GRAW 2. Don't get me wrong, I still need my fix of both. It's like ____ and ____. Both are great, and you need some of each.
