While I don't agree on the first part, I wouldn't mind the second part from time to time. Halo Fanboys are some of the worst out there, mostly because they tend to fall into the class of "Bro Gamer." (For a reference to what a Bro Gamer is please go Here)

I am neither personally, I enjoyed the series for what they are, good thought out games that may not of broken any molds but were solid enough to provide replayability in an interesting universe with mistakes, but few enough to keep you interested.
Halo: Combat Evolved showed us what a FPS could be, it didn't "break" the mold, just kinda filled it in all the way. Halo 2 and beyond turned into a money grab that gave us the bastard child Halo 3: ODST.

Personally, I liked to story line of ODST. All in all it was a good game, IMO.

ODST was actually one of my favs, it was nice to not play as master chief, and I enjoyed the little street sections and the music was brilliant in those parts, added allot to the atmosphere.

the graphics especially on faces did let it down a little though, but who gives a shit about graphics.

I didn't mind Halo3: ODST, for a game originally designed as an expansion it's pretty good. The thing to remember is that is was more of a test bed for aspects of Halo: Reach, E.g. firefight, night vision/VISR, lighting effect etc.

I'm not an expert, but if you start all serious about something then decide to try the line
"I only did this as a joke", doesn't that mean you have conceded the arguement?

Everyone has a purpose, just so happens mine is more of an example to others of what NOT to do.

I know it's time to go to bed when the last post in every thread has been written by me.

The game should have been DLC, not a full priced $60 retail purchase. Thats what I meant by bastard child. I was disappointed with what was packaged in the game, though the mechanics were strong enough. They should have just had the game as a $20 download.

W - 1
Ld - 2

Ya i realy dislike halo becuas eof what it has done to gmaing culture in general. Every 1st or 3rd person shooter is compared to halo now which i hate. So master chief can go rot in hell. (BTW Master chieft is actualy Duke Nukem in discise!)

everyone these days wants full games for $20, not gonna happen though, why would a game industry make a full game for $20?, unless they want to go out of business
$20 = extra maps for a game, not a full game
you wana t a full game for $20 buy it second hand

but anyway.

How about a stat line for Noble 6 Even though he died at the end of Reach he still kills like 7 Zealot and Ultra elites in the last cinematic

Master Chief? You mean a genetically engineered super-soldier in powered armour? I'm sure we have something like that already in the 40k universe, what are they called...SPACE MARINES!

I know, hard to remember right? I mean GW are only in love with them (and why not) and produce a new Space Marine Codex on an almost weekly basis.

I'm afraid you've just been nominated for a muppet award...

Make no mistake, I love HALO but everytime I play it I'm thinking, oooh look what one Space Marine can do.

Honestly, you can't really base his stats off the game; if you read the Halo books the chief is insane. He basically mows through covies like they aren't even there. I would honestly, now take it with a small pinch of salt since MC and spartans are probably my favorite SciFi .... characters I suppose, anyway, here is how I would write his stats:

WS:4(maybe5) BS:5 S:4 T:4(maybe just 3 though) A:2(maybe3) W:3 I:5(in the books the spartans reaction time is to fast for them to calculate) LD:10 Sv: 4+/4++ (honestly, it wouldn't be anywhere as good a power armor since spartans aren't assault troops)

Special rules:
Fleet(they can do over 30MPH in a full sprint), Fearless, Inspiring Presence, Stubborn.

Inspiring Presence: Basically everyone uses his LD.

I would also figure out some way to work in all the toys he gets from Halo3.

Edit: Really though, this business about comparing a Spartan to a SM is silly. Its comparing apples to oranges; Spartans aren't assault troops, they are covert ops troops. A Spartan would never get into HTH with a SM because, even though a Spartan might have comparable strength and, big maybe here, toughness to a marine, he doesn't have the same training and he doesn't have the same equipment that a marine has access to.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.
