    I like how you're going through a lot of the game as slow as you can and you're only at 8 hours. What have games become these days :(

    Which makes me lulz over people complaining that ODST was only 10 hours or so.

    Then again, remember when games like DKC were hot shit and you could beat those in an hour.

    I think if I were to grind all the levels out, I'd probably top out at 10 hours or so. The levels I all have 30 mins or so on, I can pretty much only double the time like I did with Sierra.

    Of course, if I were to run Query Spree on all our tags again, I bet all our hours played for matchmaking are $texas

    edit: for the record, my current level times:

    01:11:11 - Sierra 117
    00:29:23 - Crow's Nest
    00:38:37 - Tsavo Highway
    00:25:50 - The Storm
    00:49:43 - Floodgate
    01:38:04 - The Ark
    01:58:16 - The Covenant
    00:31:35 - Cortana
    00:32:43 - Halo


    Sierra 117 - my last run pretty much maxed it out under his rules. got both skulls to pad some time.
    Crow's Nest - can be grinded more by doing the snail walk, since I crouch walked it last time with the stick all the way forward.
    Tsavo Highway - Can be grinded for more with snail walk, but it's very dangerous to do so on the open road parts from vehicle-driving AI and vehicle driving allies
    The Storm - Can be grinded a bit more with slow walking, but getting the skull actually requires me to move faster than usual. I think I might leave this one alone. Also you can get fucked over at the scarab battle out of nowhere (see: blooper reel)
    The Ark - I could maybe get 30 more minutes by snail walking all the way back from the Dawn landing scene and the battle right before fighting the scorpion, but they're way too dangerous to do so (and now you have like, 8 AI vehicles trying to accidentally run you over)
    The Covenant - pretty much maxed out for me. IWHBYD gives a lot of bonus time. Maybe 15 more minutes could be gotten out of it.
    Cortana - I am never going back to this level again. It's unpredictable in the first section (sometimes all the pureforms will stay ground crawlers, sometimes they all go wall sniper). But where I get screwed over is the escape run. If I had a consistent way of dealing with the escape part, I could get this level up to an hour.
    Halo - pretty much maxed out for me. Constant battling makes snail walking dangerous, and the level isn't long in the first place. Also even on Normal you can get screwed over in the final run by a bad hog tumble (especially on that part where the Sentinels like to flip you over, that almost got me on my run)

    I love IWHBYD.

    The skull just has the funniest name and description of them "I would have been your daddy, but a dog beat me over the fence" and it makes the enemies the funniest shit.

    I think a brute can say he'll eat your balls for dinner, something along those lines. Classic.

    It really makes me realise just how few missions there really are, and how short some are... I feel that you could have got longer from The Ark without too much trouble...

    Could you link me to the rules again please.

    Are you putting these on your File Share at any point?

    Do we have any idea how many missions ODST has, or what lengths they are?

    Oh, and I seem to remember some videos being posted by someone (Willeth? Fyre?) containing minute after minute of IWHBYD lines!

    Kor posted it in the last thread. I think there were three different videos of different lines.

    Nope, we (well, I was very young, more so than I am now, I mean, so I never really had any involvement) were a Halo 2 clan for several years, when was TBK formed, 2004, wasn't it?

    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.

    According to lookfree it's a random glitch. Except both of us got hit at the same time and it's not consistent on staying unfrozen or frozen.

    Like Kor before me, I too bought the sexiness that is Metroid Prime Trilogy (canceled my preorder on Persona to make it even, I can wait until Christmas or my birthday two weeks later for Persona). I will admit that I do not foresee myself completing all three before ODST drops, but I was desperate to find a way to occupy my time until we get to be Helljumpers.

    I think Persona games sell well enough now, that they make plenty of them.

    I'm playing Halo 2 right now (part of my halo trilogy legendary run). I'm up for playing whatever, but I'm not sure how Halo 2 on the 360 will work if someone sends me a message. I'll check here on occasion, if anyone is up for anything just post. Also, new bungie podcast is up.
