    First time ive used xbox live since gears1... I played halo3 singleplayer and multiplayer for about a day or two when it came out, haven't touched it since.

    I've decided to give halo a second chance because of all the positive feedback ive been getting on OT, plus Reach actually looks pretty damn fun.

    So how do i get good at this shit, its not like really anything ive played before... kind of like a slower paced UT. I feel like im dying a shitload but ive had it for 2 days and im rank 26, i guess it goes to 50? Most people who play this on OT are 50 im assuming?

    Seems like that burst rifle is the best basic weapon, i feel so handicapped since i know people have been playing this shit for a longggg time but im having fun :mamoru:

    Shame ODST is a poopoo game.

    Never was a Halo fan, but the screenshots of the Reach lobby system make it look very very cool. Shame it's just the same engine as Halo 3.

    k so apparently a sweet strategy is to run away around the corner, jump, and then midair smack the person in the head as they run around behind you.

    :hsugh:

    It's completely re-built though and I think they did an awesome job with it. And I think they are prepping it for licensing. If so, I am kindof excited to see what other people can do with the engine:o

    Hopefully they can make better use of the Xbox's power.

    Watch your mouth. His mom took care of me all the time when I slept over HatShapedHat house during the teenage years. She's awesome.

    She made great ice cream sundaes.

    the leveling in halo is based on if your team wins the game or not. it has nothing to do with your personal stats. and this game is about teamwork more than anything. it would take you a year or two of playing to keep up with the top players.
