Come on now Token cut the crap and get on and play. Sure you have enough time to post on the boards at all hours of the day, but not enough time to play a few rounds of Halo? :D
Really. I just auto refresh every 10 minutes but this Entrepreneurship and Accounting comes first. I hate this semester.

I was by Bungie.net today and saw this. Looks like it could be fun and I thought I would share it with you all. I will probably be on tonight to give it a go.
Playlist of the Living Dead Posted by Frankie at 10/30/2007 10:25 AM PDTIn the dead of night, cold lids flutter and wake from dread slumber. What do those milky eyes see when they rise from their graves? What do those decaying nostrils scent in the air as they sniff the perfumed night of the boneyard? Brains of course. Succulent, delicious brains. Brains are to zombies as bacon is to people. Or candy, if you’re kosher.It is a scientific fact that zombies feast on human brains because they are the softest meat on a person and Zombie dental care is not really up to snuff. To celebrate the gustatory tendencies of the walking dead and to acknowledge All Hallows Eve, we’re launching a spooktacular, eerie-otic and cryptmongous playlist for 27 horror-filled hours, starting on October 31st at 12:01am and ending at 3:00am on November 1st because we love Hawaii Halloween too (Chicken skin kine). It is infection and it is the playlist of the Living Dead.To answer your eerie queries and uncanny questions, we reanimated Transylvanian Tyson Green from his dank and moldering pit. Q: Infection, what’s that? Infection is this really great gametype, inspired by a custom game devised by our community in Halo 2, which we added official support for in Halo 3. In Infection, most players start off on a Human team, with one or more players starting off as Zombies. The odds are stacked heavily against the Zombies at first, but when a Human is killed by a Zombie (as they inevitably are), they join the Zombie team and turn on their former teammates. Q: How long will the Living Dead haunt matchmaking?Just for Halloween, from 12:01am to 3:00am the next morning, PST. We decided to let it go a bit late into the morning to give people a chance to play when they got home from their Halloween carousing. Infection is a lot of fun when everyone is into it, but we don’t think it would make a good playlist long term, so it’s going to come and go. And if everyone has a good time, who knows? It may return, as the restless dead are known to do.Q: Can I get achievements in this playlist?Yes, it is set up as a Ranked Playlist, and players will have some good opportunities to pick up a few of the harder MP achievements without any of that pesky guilt. Fending off the hungry dead is as righteous a way as any to score an Overkill. It’s also a good chance to fill out your Ranked Medals with some of the Infection medals, like Infection Spree and Hell’s Janitor.Q: Can I join with my homies or is this a Lone Wolves style hopper? And how many corpses will I play with?You can join with a max party size of 4, Infection matches can start with eight players and the games have a player limit of 13. You cannot, however, join with Guests (multiple players on one box). Q: There’s more than one version of Infection in this playlist, what is each version and how does it work?We’re using two main versions: Save One Bullet, which is close to classical Infection but with limited ammunition which keeps the Humans from holding off the Zombies forever, and Creeping Death, where the Zombies are a bit slower but shockingly invisible and deadly. Creeping Rockets is a third variant where the Humans are more heavily armed, but the Zombies are tougher too. Q: Do the maps in Living Dead have the same set-ups that I am used to? The Living Dead playlist will be the first to use Forge variants in Matchmaking. Lars [Bakken] and Dan [Miller] pulled out all the stops and Forged some masterful variants featuring fortified positions and anti-Zombie booby traps to help get people into the Zombie mind (which is to say, wanting to get into a Human’s mind. Directly.)Q: Man, I love these gametypes is there any way I can get them? Any time you play one of these variants in Matchmaking, they’re saved in your Recent Games queue (in the Custom Games lobby, go to select the game type—the Recent Games list is at the top.) They may also show up in the Bungie Favorites this week.Q: Will there be more special hoppers in the future?You bet.

Halo® 3 players will be able to enjoy three all new multiplayer maps on December 11 as part of the Heroic Map Pack, the first in a series of downloadable content from Bungie Studios to come via Xbox LIVE®. Available for 800 Microsoft Points exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, each map presents a totally different play style. The symmetrical valley of Standoff, with its entrenched bases and fields of boulders is ideal for mid-sized objective and Slayer game types.The vast, labyrinthine passages of the Rat's Nest bring something completely new to the multiplayer experience: an indoor vehicle paradise. Strongly influenced by the Campaign mode, this map is ideal for big team battles. Foundry is the ultimate Forge map. Players can edit every single object in this voluminous industrial warehouse, placing stairways, walls, bridges, and tunnels to create an entirely new play space and build almost any kind of map imaginable.All three maps will become available for free download via Xbox LIVE Marketplace in Spring 2008, just prior to the next wave of new Halo 3 multiplayer maps.We'll have more information on the Heroic Map Pack, including how to get the pack for those who haven't downloaded content before, as the release date nears.Linkso who wil be DLing it on the 11th?

http://www.classactionconnect.com/?q=node/682&gclid=CL3-4sHrjJACFQUsPAodbjBStwNow you can sue because they released a game where the edges are so jaggy and look like you can shave your face with them? Awesome.If Bungie is forced to pay anything out of this stupid little lawsuit, I'll be happy.

Thats ridiculous, nearly EVERY game out there does the same thing, maybe Ratoutille displays in full 1080p but just because halo falls short a bit doesnt mean they should be fucking sued."Hey look, that games making money! I want some!"

I just want to see them get knocked down a god damn peg because they're such assholes. Point out something, and you instantly get a response to the tune of "OMG YOU ARE A CONSPIRACY THEORIST, WHO NOTICES THAT, WHY WOULD YOU POINT THAT OUT, YOU HAVE NO LIFE, YOU JUST LIKE DRAMA LOL"

I am wondering who if any still have interest in playing H3 and of those people who is going to be getting the new (overpriced zing) map pack?I plan on playing a little more, now that I have finished (almost) all of the games I wanted to play this year. I see very few people on my friends list playing, so I am trying to get more people that are willing to play on my friends list. Anyway just post in here or send me a friends request if you are up for some H3 multi.
