You believe this game is getting reviews of 100%? I'm wondering how much these review sights are getting paid.
It's good, but they're just writing a hasty review after playing the game. If they let their initial excitement die down, they'd give it a more accurate review. So far, I'd put it at about 90%. It's not really breaking all that much new ground, but what it does, it does well.
From the NYT Halo 3 article:
Among them was Mr. Bollard, 18, who said the 73 cents was all he would have left after buying the game. [snip] “I don’t know how I’m going to feed myself,” Mr. Bollard said.
It's a game... it's not worth starving yourself for. Eh well, it'll make a good "crazy college kid" story he can tell his kids.
More than 10,000 stores across the country, many of them converted into miniature carnivals Monday night for fans awaiting the game, opened their doors to long lines of Halo fans who started camping out as early as Sunday afternoon.
Unless you just enjoy camping out before major releases, you're an idiot if you camped out on Sunday. I walked into a local Best Buy yesterday and picked up the LE edition shortly after noon. Microsoft wisely produced 80 billion copies of the game, so there shouldn't be widespread shortages.
Games exclusively for the PlayStation 3 this holiday season include the fantasy diversions Lair and Heavenly Sword.
Fantasy diversions? I'm not sure whether they're trying to insult the fantasy genre or the games themselves, which have generally received poor reviews.
Joseph Hunter, 19, a student at Morehouse College in Atlanta, said the series has “sort of become an obsession” and said entire dormitories at Morehouse face off against one another in Halo combat.
Nice. Wish I had inter-dorm lan parties. I only remember doing this a couple of times in college.
(Continued) Regarding Halo 3, he said, “I knew that if I didn’t have it, my life would be over.”
