    I'm still pissed at M$ and Bungie for keeping H3 X360 only. I know they compete w/Sony & Nintendo pretty heavy but damn release some games for the PC M$.

    Whatever happened to "Halo 3 is the end of Halo?"...

    Oh well, I guess I'm just kind of annoyed that Halo ODST took me 3 hours to finish and gave me all the DLC I already had except for firefight which I found lackluster. Aaand all for the magnificent price of $60+ (Canadian)

    Its a prequel so dont sweat.

    Halo 3 was a pretty unspectacular ending to the series AND i still dont get what the halo rings actually do!

    Yeah, I'm also pretty annoyed at that, I prefer FPS on PC. I'd be interesting if they implement DX11 on Halo 3 PC if it does come out.

    I think Halo: Reach story will be the best in the series. I do like the whole 'lone ranger' thing that most FPS do, however I prefer when a bit more realism is added and it seems that the odds are stacked against the Spartan II with death the likely outcome (well obviously). However I think they'll make the whole "Spartans don't die, they are just MIA" thing the end story, with you not seeing the death of your character or whole squad. It looks promising though.

    They are a failsafe to stop the "flood". They explained that in the first Halo.

    When the flood gets lose, the old folks would activate a "Halo" which would promptly destroy the galaxy the flood was lose in. That way it could not spread.

    "According to Halo's fiction, the Forerunners built the rings to contain and study the Flood, an infectious alien parasite. The rings also act together as a weapon of last resort; when fired, the rings kill any sentient life capable of falling prey to the Flood, starving the parasite of its food."

    Ye i knew what you where on about lol and ye i have completed all the 3 Halo games, i remember it now thanks.

    Already saw it, seems interesting but not a halo fan, halo combat evolved was the only good one:D
