So, I officially sank to a new low of nerd this week. As everyone probably knows, Halo 2 came out yesterday. Well, since I’m such an Xbox fanboy, I snagged it. Now, granted, I own very few xbox games, but I figured, Halo was so quality that I had to give props to Bungie and Microsoft and make the purchase.
Now, the reason that this has made me reach a new level of nerd, is because I didn’t just wait to get it on Tuesday or pre-order it. Oh no, I was out on Monday night at midnight picking it up. First stop was the EBGames on campus. Wow, that was mistake. I got there around 11:30 to find a line that stretched from EBGames to Follett’s (for those of you unaware, that’s about a block). However, being the resourceful person I am, I hadn’t gone on this Halo 2 journey alone. Instead, a coworker went to Meijers, while I went to EB. Turns out he was the line at Meijers. Needless to say, out to Meijers I went.
Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Wow, he is a nerd,” but just wait, because the story isn’t done. I then headed back to my apt and played till about 3am.
“Damn, 3am, what about work the next day?”
Already taken care of, since I took Tuesday off to play with some friends and coworkers. We had a projector for 2 of us, and a large screen tv for the other 2. We also ordered a Jimmy John’s sub platter and had a good ol’ time. It was crazy how fast the day actually passed.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the game. The graphics are top notch, and they added a bunch of cool stuff (like throwing someone out of a vehicle while it’s going, weilding two guns at the same time, etc). It has definitely lived up to the hype. Now I just need to take the time to beat it and watch all the cutscenes, since we weren’t really watching the cutscenes while playing co-op.
Yet another game that I need to beat on the Xbox. This past weekend, I really got into Fable as I waited on stuff being reconfigured on my server. Good times indeed.
