I got it last night, and it is brilliant. I'm stuck at home today this thursday watching contractors. Then I noticed this little free 2 month card for Xbox live.

I have broadband. There is a switch 5 feet from the xbox. So I'll be logging in as moofrank for xbox live.

There is a nifty game setup menu in Halo 2 that lets you add friends, and stick together as you go from game to game in the multiplayer. And might actually make the whole online shooting thing fun.

Moo
Frank

feh!
I've been playin' the shit outta GTA: San Andreas lately. It's a killer game... I'm amazed that they've been able to take GTA 3 and improve it with GTA: Vice City and then improve that with the latest chapter... Meanwhile, I've still never played Halo, but it's not intentional.

FPS
I was surprised by my attraction to FPS's. I liked playing the original Halo because while the game itself is very twitchy and simplistic, the control and smoothness are just amazing. It is all in subtle ways like how your targetting controls drift just a bit to help you keep a moving enemy in the reticle, and how the different weapons are really different.

But I had never tried it multiplayer until today. I suspect that I would really hate the whole multiplayer FPS thing, but I was forced to play Counterstrike a few months back and quite enjoyed it.

The Halo 2 game matching system is REALLY amazing. Hit a few buttons with your preferences, and the system starts filling games, taking your preferences into account. And with the horde of Halo 2 players now, games fill in seconds.

The voice chat thing seems useful, but maybe a quarter of the folks playing seem to be talking. (Perhaps the 2 month freebie and no headset is very pervasive.)

The only downside is that I'm trying to get Sandi interested, as up to 4 people can log on from a single console. She is:
A: not a big fan of the shooter thing.
B: easily annoyed by other people.
C: Wants to play more Fable.

Moo,
Frank

Gamer Tag
I did get moofrank as my gamer tag.

Since I'm doing the freebie 2 month thing, I don't have a headset. JWitt has shown me the charm of having a headset---it actually means that the whole teamwork thing is theoretically possible.

None of the groups I've been playing with have been using voice to spot snipers, which does seem odd.

You guys need to get with the program and ditch the Xbox to play some more PC games.
