One of the many pleasures of both Halo and Halo 2 are the small snippets of dialogue spoken by non-player characters. When confronted by a variety of situations, both human and Covenant NPCs will shoot off a variety of humorous one-liners, including: "Okay, purple hearts for everybody!", " I wonder if those aliens have insurance?", and "Having a lovely time kicking ass in outer space--wish you were here!"

Often, NPCs' quips will veer into risqué territory, as when one UNSC marine in Halo 2 sarcastically reminisces about catching an incurable STD. Halo 3 will continue this off-color trend, according to a recent report from the Canadian Press. While at the game's developer, Microsoft-owned Bungie Studios, a writer for news service was told that the hulking race known as the Brutes will have some homosexual tendencies--presuming they have sexes at all.

According to the article, "One Bungie employee slyly asks the visiting reporters if anyone heard a Brute lament the death of an ally with the words: 'He was my lover.'" Reps for Microsoft Game Studios declined to comment on the article, or confirm if the snippet of dialogue would be included in the final version of the game, due out on September 25.
