I vaguely recall playing the first one. Never understood what the hubbub was about, bub.
It was one of the first console shooters to dumb down gameplay to the point where any dummy could pick up a controller and start spamming nades or one-shot-kill knife attacks. People love to rip on Call of Duty but Halo is one of the original culprits of the complete pussification of modern shooters.
Not to mention the story is dry, predictable, has no memorable characters and the gameplay is about as canned and generic as you could possibly imagine.
=\ I enjoyed the story of the Halo franchise...
Actually, I pretty much only played the games for the singleplayer. Really loved ODST, Reach, and Halo 4 in particular.
Why the hell aren't we getting THOSE on PC?

They didn't announce it today so it's over. It would seem Valve is out of games development entirely now.
..because they didn't announce a new game at a developer's conference?

HL3 to be the Source Engine 2 launch title makes sense. Fingers crossed?
I sure hope so. Well, I hope for a new grand slam: Portal 3, Half Life 3, Left 4 D3ad.. 3. See what I did there

Fuck it, next time I'll just torrent shit.
I'm going round and round with itunes right now, and am thinking the same thing. It's literally just easier to steal it than buy it.

I'm mostly fine with them delaying it. In fact I had no problem at all with the first delay. However, the second delay kinda worries me and if they delay it a third time I'm going to be royally pissed. This game better be 100% bug free when they finally release it.
This is already like the fourth or fifth delay.
