Great cartoon. Great review. I've never laughed at something so much at six thirty in the morning when I'm awake because my kids manage to be sporadically noisey at 0600 without damaging the hell-born ability to nevertheless return spontaneously to sleep.
I think Halo's a marvelous series, I have yet to play the 3rd installment and I DO believe that the Half Life series is much better, but you do have to realize that Bungie did make an all-around solid game. And there are other, more blatantly shitty titles out there that were (and still are) far more up their own asses when it comes to Fanboys and crowd approval (The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has been crashing and burning for virtually the past decade, and Final Fantasy's Asshole is so crammed with their own head that they can't even realize that nobody of worth is actually paying that much attention to their half-rate games anymore. Go ahead FFanboys and girls, rip into me all you like, you know the THIRTEENTH installment of a goddamn game with 16 or 17 predeccesors needs to go the way of Old Yeller, and not just burn out in such an ugly way like it is now.).
You also have to realize that the first Halo was there at the right time on the right console, since there weren't any other good shooters out at the time on the system at launch. The second installment really didn't stack up just as well to the original, and I bet the third WILL show improvement, if I dare to say it.
All in all I'd have to disagree with the point-blank distaste about Halo, but I definitely understand the argument, and can agree to some extent.
that is freakin funny...and for the record....ive been calling microsofts takeover of the entire world starting with switzerland for the last 8 years >.< but still funny. and true...very true. but its still an awesome game ^ ^
