Halo 3: Beyond the Beta

M&C Gaming:

So the Halo 3 beta is almost over. Just five more days. Poop.
While we were playing in matchmaking on the beta, we were accidentally booted from a party after the party leader switched game types. Much to our surprise, those of us that got the boot scored and found ourselves in a Custom Games menu.

All we can say is wow. The Custom Games menu itself is kind of funny for starters - There are two spartans standing staticly, except one that's holding a removable turret chain gun looks like he's perpetually doing a shoulder excerise. But who are we kidding - we were in heaven.

So we tried everything. We played with the new pistol, which makes its first appearance since Halo: Combat Evolved. The upside - it's sweet, it's chrome and fires not too unlike the Magnum from Halo 2, except it seems to have longer range and has a tad more kick. The downside - there's no scope, which is prolly good, because everyone knows that darned scope on the old pistol was pretty unbalanced.

Damn do i love this game !
Anyone that hates on it is being totally biased because everyone has to admit that this game is definitely a piece of art and it hasn't even come out yet.
