    I'm thinking that Halo isn't going to live up to the hype. I mean, first it was a computer game. Then M$ bought Bungie and now Halo is a console game that is being ported to computers. Consoles are more limited than computers are so they are going to have to strip the game down to be ideal for a console. :(

    I agree Jakeman. Microsoft screwed over Halo and Bungie in another reckless (maybe intentional) hostile corporate takeover. Those b@($)$%s!

    Don't be so hard on Bungie. Oni wasn't the game that was hyped, but was still a damn good game, we have to remember that what the developers can render and what the average gamer can handle are two separate categories. I'd be surprised if Unreal II has the same level of intensity as the game developers originally planned on, or any game for that matter. It's a question of playability. If we all had SGI machines with 8 gigs of ram and a 1 gig video card we wouldn't have this problem, but I don't think that most of us could afford to shell out $80,000 for a computer. Halo will be good, remember the x-box is basically a geforce 3 with a DVD-ROM, if they need it they have plenty of capability.

    Speaking of Halo, I just read the article at maccentral.com about the Halo development. Is it just me or does it sound like it has become a level based game as opposed to non-linear? Any rumors circling about that one? On a side note the things they were talking about still make my knees tremble when I think about playing in that kind of enviornment. Halo will still rock out despite the buy-out.
