    Due to my roommate needing our place to himself with his lady-friend this evening, I've had to cancel my plans to play Halo tonight. So, uh, see you guys tomorrow maybe.

    He is getting laid and you aren't even playing halo.

    He wins.

    So today I picked up Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4 by trading in nearly a metric shitton worth of games at Gamestop.

    They had a black Friday special going. Trade in 5 games and get 30% extra.
    Then my EDGE card get me another 10%.

    Thing is, I'm away from my Xbox until late Sunday.
    So you bitches probably won't see me on Halo for a whiiiiiiile.

    I've been sick lately so I haven't been online much. I can just tolerate playing Mass Effect without getting a massive headache so any fast paced online play will probably make my head explode. I think I'm past the worst of it so I might join up for COD or Halo action tonight.

    Yeah, as of last night I am back. Good fortune seems to have smiled upon me spurring me to action.

    I came into the possession of 3 Legendary Editions of Halo3 via the 7-11 Online contest, so I arrive home from work on Monday to find 3 huge boxes at my front door, metal numbered out of 711 plates on each helmet. Very cool, so I figure I can ebay them off or something, and now that I have the game I may as well snag a console to play it on.

    Black Friday, myself and three other friends camp outside of BestBuy in 20 degree weather 8 hours with 300 other people to police riots and beatdowns to acquire a Pro model with a free Guitar Hero 2 bundle.

    I arrive home, play some Halo, beat campaign with these friends, play Guitar Hero, it claims it wont recognize the disk and its grinding like a beast in the drive, now I can't play anything.

    My Xbox 360 was dead and burned out in under 6 hours.

    I return it to BestBuy, pay the difference for a Halo Edition and then finding its hardware satisfactory, transfer my account over to play some Halo where many people hit me with surprised messages and delighted responses to my arrival on the 360 scene. I also just had my internet connected at my new house today so I'll be on the nets again for the first time in a couple of months.

    I'm thinking of picking up Rock Band today since I see quite a few of you on and its another main reason I wanted the 360. But we ought to play some Halo tomorrow night when I'm not slaving away to pay for all this wonderful consumerist rubbish. Gotta support the economy though, am i rite?

    HAHAH I guess you weren't kidding when you said you were going to buy a ton of those 7-11 cups.

    (something along the lines of) " yes I'm going to buy like a 300 halo 3 cups from 7-11 and not get the console"

    Your lack of optimism killed your first 360, tin.

    Although I do have to say, the Halo 360 is solid.

    And yea, I'll probably be offline for about a week or so (lots of school-work to do) but after next friday, I'll definitely be hitting up some more Halo. If you see me online before then, kick me off! I have much work to be done.

    Oh yeah, suffice it to say- I was livid. But I could appreciate the irony of it and remained entirely placid as my rage boiled over onto the still frozen flesh of my body from the night before. It really worked out for the best as I otherwise might not have returned it until it RROD down the road or had some other problem and I still got to keep the free GH2 even with the Halo Edition so it worked out for the best in the end.

    Awesome games tonight guys, good to have the old posse rolling again undefeated and shutting em down. Nothing says 'welcome home' like a liquored up Namb, this is the warm blanket of sanity I have dearly missed. Also nice to hang with Badman again, years older and wiser. FUCKING BRS!! ( I now love the BR) Is it just me or do they not make our foes like they used to? No skill at insults, no clever trash talk, no challenge in combat- maybe it was just the A Team shutting them down but it tasted like noobsauce. I really like Last Resort and Valhalla is lovely for Mongeese Patrol.

    I need to get some Achievements under my belt so I am not laughed off Live.

    Thats all you need is a liquored up nambkab. I swear he can beat zeek when properly liquored. I still wonder If I even belong with the A group. But ahh well my work schedule clearly has something to say about that.

    You make a point I'd meant to press some time back, that the Clan as a whole has come of age. Thus where many were able to slack off at college and play 8 hours a day 7 days a week, we now find ourselves in this realm of responsibility and are lucky to find a night or two a week after doing the 50 hour a week job and grad school on top of that. I know most of us that were of college age for H2 are now out and in the working work, home owning game and the HSers that were bogged with homework now have positively oodles of slacker freetime to waste tuition money on playing games. I know I did. So really its not that the clan fell apart, it just grew up and now we have to run things differently and be mature about our precious gaming minutes and rally when we can.

    Winter break is coming up for school, I'll be able to play a bit then, hence the purchase was justified. New maps, Fall update with Clan list, it'll come together. There's just so damn many fine games to contend with and dividing everyone's attentions. I've never known a gaming Christmas like this before.

    And don't discount yourself Viscount, you're still definitely a key player in the roster of personalities that make the clan, en absentia or not.

    College time = should be working my ass off, but freedom turns into laziness and I end up playing Halo. GOD winter break will rule ass! VideoGames without a side of guilt.

    playing with Blind on in the last level is pretty cool, it's really too bad they didn't work with it more this time and have it at least show your hands/gun, since we have films to save hudless screenshots.

    I noticed at least this time around, you can see your legs.

    Also Nambkab's hilarious fail at landing on the last tower.

    Anyway, I know at least me, Badman, and tin are probably going to be a Legendary/skull-collect run late tonight.

    I'm on winter break, no class until January. That means plenty of Halo time, but it'll mostly be during daytime hours.

    A lot of us remember you still because we kept you to have a member still from 11/9 in the Halo 2 clan. :P

    Also, yeah, should have a ranked BTB, but they got rid of 1v1 due to rampant cheating.
