Halo PC Q&A

HomeLAN Fed's Halo PC Q&A talks with both Bungie's Michel Bastien and Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford about the upcoming PC version of Halo. Here's a bit from Randy that helps explain why this port has taken so long:

We got the net code up to speed by starting over and re-writing it. Halo for Xbox was not designed to be played over the internet – we spent nearly half of our time on network programming and we think it’s going to be well worth the investment. What do you think? Do you think people will want to play Halo over the internet? Since we’ve gotten it running, it’s all I can think about…

"Gryph, I think that's the first logical reason I've heard why not to play the PC version of Halo. It actually makes SENSE, as opposed to all the other "XBox/Halo/Microsoft sucks" and "HL2/Doom3 is better" whining that has been going on in these threads. I applaud you."

Congratulations Gryphin!! DR applauds you! Printscreen and frame! Never forget this moment!

Personnally, I'm just happy something finally "makes sense" to DR. His version of reality doesn't allow a lot of "sense" past that wall of ignorance. You see, DR is... "special". Upon first reading his posts, I thought he was just an asocial nub, but now I realize he is just one of our "special" citizens. It's good to see him reaching out to "normal" society like this by posting to Bluesnews. It's good therapy. Take this into consideration when reading his posts and be patient with him. He can't always help himself, and his responses don't originate from the same world of reality that the rest of us live in.

Here DR, have a juice box and an Oreo. Run along and play now.
