So some of you might remember this guy:

halo3-2-lg.jpg


He starred in some indie title that made a little bit of noise last year. Made a couple mil. Not much to write home about.

Well apparently the "wizards" behind this one have seen fit to introduce a huge title update.

Some of you may have seen this update shown off at PAX under the title of Halo 3: Mythic.

Basically the update includes 750 points of new achievements (bringing the grand total to 1750 for those keeping score at home), a new playlist ranking systems, some pretty fun challenges.

But the best is yet to come as Bungie has announced via a sorta cryptic teaser that it will be releasing a FULL GAME that will fill in the gap after you leave Earth in Halo 2 and when you land in Halo 3. So basically no Master Chief, hello ODST troops.


EDIT: Halo 3 Recon announced at TGS with full trailer

http://www.bungie.net/news/content.aspx?type=topnews&link=ournextgame



Some of you still play this game and many don't. So I invite those who would be willing to give it another go. Because damn it's been a long time.

Viva Crazies and RocketTown!

    The update is already out and will automatically be added when you boot up the game. Also the map packs are now entirely free.

    And the new levels comes out in December/January.

    Halo 3 is much better than one or two, mostly because the weapon balance and feel is far improved, but the level design is still merely poor to adequate when compared to pretty much anything epic has ever put out.

    I didn't like halo that much before, really

    but I played halo 3 a good bit this summer since my roommate had it, and I gradually came around

    I now think it's one of the funnest and best-balanced multiplayer FPSes I've ever seen

    People all act like halo was a huge revolution in level design and weapon balance.

    But really all it brought was the accessibility to a genre usually limited by shitty controls on the consoles or vast expense on the PC...

    Halo is fun. It's a good, solid game.

    It's nothing revolutionary, but it's a good game.

    I personally found the first to be mediocre at best when compared to what I had in UT99.

    I think the most fun I had with Halo was that time that Dave, Cadmunky, d3thmommy, and I played with you, Geek
    Thunderdome, or whatever that one map was
    And then once you left Dave showed us this ridiculous maze map that I need to see if I got from him
    Thing was so great

    Halo one was soooo boring though.


    It's like it was the level designers were TRYING to make you want to dig your eyes out with a kiddy spoon.

    This I demand. If only for the Vidmaster challenge where you turn on the Iron skull and put everyone in Ghosts on the last level. That's just a recipe for hilarity.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Halo 3's multiplayer even with the horrid maps.

    Though if anyone else had bought UT3 for the PC i think I would have gotten a much better time from that.

    If by hilarity, you mean dying randomly due to flipping over for no damn good reason, having shrapnel fall from the heavens with enough force to instantly kill you despite full shields, and having every single sentinel focus on one guy despite the other three being around him so he ends up dead...

    Oh, add in the fact that every time one person dies, everyone has to start from the last checkpoint. Some of the spawns are just stupid; Primus got spawned heading into a pit, and I got spawned in midair from a jump with very little speed behind me.

    Marathon makes me nauseous.

    Something about the textures and the way the level seems to move around you instead of the other way around...


    Also the level design is far worse than halo's, I mean I got lost in one level for a half hour, and I don't think it's because I just suck...
