HALO 3 Beta

Pages

Trying get a feel of who is playing?

Downloadable today?

Woooo wait a minute here. The Halo 3 Beta thread. Started by a coffee grinder?

CERTIS!

I'm there.

Yeah well, coffee grinder bashing aside, I'm there too.

One would hope today around midnight.

You can bet your sweet ass I'll be there first thing after work tomorrow.

well, nutz, I was going to post an event for this. I plan on playing Halo 3 every night that the beta is running. Every night. Maybe not every night, but my Gears time will be severely hampered.

Anyone object if I run with this beta, try to organize something?

Too late, you have FAILED.

How long until we can get back to Gears?

Not at all. I'm not sure much organization will be called for, though. My guess is that a good number of us will just show up most nights and jump into whatever GWJ party is up and running, and head off to the races.

When is the beta supposed to run till? I'm hoping MS can get my 360 back to me before it ends.

It runs for roughly three weeks -- until June 4th or 6th or something.

Microsoft told me ten days total, but I don't know if I can trust them. I can always just go over a friends house.

I'm definitely in. Maybe someone should put something on the Calendar?

I'll probably be playing almost every single night too, souldaddy.

I <3 lunabean (but not like that, zero)

I'm in...!

I'm lending my copy of Crackdown to a coworker so he can play (and stop annoying the hell out of me). I finally fixed the networking issues that's been keeping me off of Live for the last few months. I'm there like a pothead at a Hershey's party.

I'm in!

I would say right after the beta ends, but I would love to still play Gears because even though I am looking forward to Halo 3,

Because there's nothing like Gears

Ah, this clears things up:

So when a zillion folks go to download this, won't there be a big slowdown for the DL and just about everything else? (btw, I will be getting this too and join when I can:>) I've already pre-ordered thru Lion.)

Good to know -- I'll start the download before I go to work.

I went ahead and posted an event.

Sweet, thanks to the new "ninja download" feature in the last update, I can set it to download before I leave to work.

I'm a sad panda. I was hoping I could start downloading at midnight, and play until morning. Instead I'm stuck starting the download in the morning, and neglecting my Haloey goodness for 9 to 10 hours.

Run away souldaddy... :o)

I plan playing through beta as much as I can, add me to your friends list!!!

I'll be in and out. Mostly in.

I still suck bad enough to unbalance the air conditioning, though.

I'll at least be giving it a whirl, but I don't think I'll be playing every night.

I'm in...I don't think my schedule matches up for Gears, but how can I go wrong with a time frame like "every night for 3 weeks"

My wife and I will both be playing this most nights.
