Alright, so in 41 days I will skip classes and maybe call in sick for work. Good to know.

fantastic, cannot wait for this game. picked up reach again and going to try and hit at least hit "hero rank" before 4 drops. looking at a lot of captains warrant officers online last night, a lot of people are brushing up in anticipation. my collectors edition has been on pre-order since March, within moments of it being announced.

Let the overhypeness begin for the biggest overrated generic franchise in history of gaming!

This may turn into a hype thread if no one else makes one. :P

I'm going to grudgingly get it. I won't be happy about it though.

The changes they made... im so skeptical.

nope, but clearly you are butthurted by just four letters H A L O. no other combination of letters causes so much knicker twisting in you PS3 fanboy cry babies.

Counting the days. Will be awesome. Though I don't expect it to reach AAA here. 8.5'ed I reckon.

Cows, you have 41 days to save for a 360 and XBL subscription.
#25 Posted by Rocker6 (13358 posts) -

Just a few posts in, and butthurt Sony Defense Force is already in full gear! :D

@kuraimen

Have you bought a PS3 yet?

Go for it, they're rather cheap nowdays... ;)

#26 Posted by GamerwillzPS (8530 posts) -

If it has a decent campaign, I'll be picking the game up... for Christmas.

They aren't gonna buy a 360. They are content enough unlike Lems.

So you weren't content enough with a PS3 so you're buying Halo 4?

So instead of enjoying great games on other consoles cows just keep some weird sense of loyalty to a company that routinely effs them over?

I'm looking for a good reason to get my 360 out of its dust collecting place.

Yes, I'm justifying my 360 purchase here. I'm desperately looking for games to play on it. Luckily, I own a PS3 and gaming PC.

Sure sounds like your PS3 can't keep you content.

The fact they could come out over a month early and say, confidently, "we are done" really increases my confidence in the game being outstanding. 41 days is going to just fly by.

That would be sweet. AAA title with free weekly DLC for 20 bones is the deal of the year. Thank you Microsoft.

Isn't it standard that the game should be done by now? Not sure how this particular case is special.

Stringerboy

Nah.

Cows have too many decent exclusives to care about this average shooter.

Considering all the games this gen released under the "release now, patch later" philosophy, no, this is quite special.

# 1 console shooter, not even debatable.

This isn't all that special for a Halo game. Reach went gold in June '10 and released a little more than three months later.

#49 Posted by AcidSoldner (7051 posts) -
Hell yeah, my most anticipated game this year despite my skepticism with some of multiplayer design. Regardless, day one buy. Currently replaying through Halo 3; if anyone would care to join me, hit me up on XBL.

Err.... I'm not sure I follow what you are referring to, most of the AAA games these days release without hitches, and even still, how do you know they aren't going to patch something?
