I like the masses had a pre-order at one of the giants. But on 9/22/07 I found out a few of my buddies were already rocking halo 3. It so happened that this small local shop decided to pick up their sales by releasing the game a few days early...which was fine by me. I called the store expecting to hear they had either sold out or stopped selling their copies. When asked if they had copies of Halo 3 they were selling, the employee replied "yup". I rushed down to the store, and a big box was sitting next to the register. The girl asked if I needed any help and I asked for a copy of halo 3, she replied "which edition?" Fricken sweet. So it was a good day for me and a better day for them, stealing all the pre orders from the giants

HEY WHATSUP EVERYBODY, AFTER PLAYING HALO3 LAST NIGHT FOR 6 HOURS I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT ITS BASICLY THE SAME GAME AS HALO2 WITH UPDATED GRAPHICS, THE CAMPAIGN IS BETTER CAUSE BETTER GRAPHICS, IM SORRY BUT NIT DOES NOT DESERVE ALL THESE PERFECT SCORES, ITS ABOUT A 8.5 IF YOU ASK ME. SORRY BUNGIE YOU RECYCLED ALMOST EVERY LEVEL FROM HALO2 AND POLISHED THEM UP, NOTE TO MS GOOD TEXTURES ARE NOT JUST TEXTURES THAT ARE GLOSSY. ITS GOOD BUT NOT ALL GREAT LIKE WE WANTED IT TO BE.
