Halo 3 TV

I saw the article about this up on Fanboy. Basically 3 college students are playing Halo 3 from 12 noon - midnight every day, with the games streamed at: http://www.justin.tv/halothree/ , complete with full voice and text chat for those visiting the stream.

It's kinda fun to watch, especially when stuck at the office. The chat room is a riot of people laughing at or cheering them on.

    kind of a neat idea but the chat thing is useless because no one says anything related to the actual game going on

    Admittedly the chat does go off on tangents, but then something will happen on screen (Banshee swooping in for instance) and the chat will go batshit crazy with "KILL THE FUCKING BAANNSSHHEEEEEEE"

    I'll concede though the chat is very ADD friendly. =)

    Fun to watch I guess. They take forever on the matchmaking screen though.

    They're actively planning to flunk out, then?

    And yet discussions of how to get the ultimate time-wasting FFXII spear are almost a cliche!

    Four hours a piece, unless they're pretty thick or doing a real hard degree it's really not that difficult tp pull that off (if they don't really have a social life that is).

    So far from listening to it at work, it seems like all 3 of them are pretty much together for almost the full 12 hours.

    What? No student in their right mind works on their course more than an hour a day anyways. To say this kind of thing is going to fail them is madness

    then again, im just going off my own, extremely lazy, experience

    still, 1st for the win.

    I got a major in drinking and a minor in hangovers my first year of university.

    Then I got put on academic warning, so I had to clean things up abit. :P
