    I don't plan to buy any consoles... I focus all my money on my PC. But I heard it is going to be ported to PC? I'll probably buy it then.

    In the mean time, I'm reading the novels. I'm already reading the third one, "The First Strike"...

    I do enjoy the novels. Not quite sure if they're canon or not but I think they're close.

    New one's out soon too I believe.

    I have a coworker that played all versions of Halo and have read the books. He said they do not conflict each other - Master Chief faced the same foes in the same places in the same order. The books added many more details in between.

    Having played the demo for Halo 1, I can say that it is only a truly great FPS, on a console. It's nothing special or new for the PC.

    It was still fun but I have plenty of better FPS games for PC.

    Rumour has it that the Gears of War for the PC is pretty good but yeah I agree, I prefer some FPS to stay on the console and not move over.

    I'm actually curious to play HL2 to see what it's like with the roles reversed, going PC to console.

    I took some awesome screenies and made some good videos. Too bad I can't transfer them to my PC. Apparently, I need this thing called "Xbox Live"

    You can record them using a TV-card - it can take input signals and save them as movie files.

    Or spend 50 bucks for 12 months of Xbox Live which is a rip off but sort of worth it.

    I'll see if fiddling around with the nearby computer's video card will do the trick :lol:

    Then I might be able to transfer my screenies and films without forking out 50 bucks for Xbox Live

    Are you sure you don't mean Unreal Tournament?

    Who has completed "Floodgate"? I just reached it today, but I need to have a general knowledge of the level before I take on the flood.

    Shoot everything, climb up hills and shoot everything.
    Oh and grenades help. Swords too. Who cares about the Elites

    Wow, I never could've guessed to do that. :rolleyes: The only thing that might help is the hills, and that's unlikely considering that the level is the flood, presuming it's in a dark, creepy city.

    Yes, well to find your way into the ship in the large area where the Elites say they're looking for Cortana, you gotta climb a large hill into the ship.

    Never mind, that level was ridiculously easy. I didn't die once, and the flood was a lot easier than expected.

    You need help in other levels, just ask. I finished it on Legendary in both single player and Co-op with 2 players.
    Now I'm trying skull combos on Normal. Some levels are just hard, eg Mythic Skull on Normal, plus tough luck and catch...

    It's "I would have been your daddy" and that skull does not cause Grunts to explode confetti
