I know quite a few people who are on the in with bungie, and none of them got a F & F invite. And with all the people speaking out about being disappointed for not getting the F & F invite. How many F & F invites were sent out because nobody I can find has gotten one. I was wondering if there is anybody out there willing to admit that they got a F & f invite. They don't need to say there code or anything. I just want to see somebody who got a F & F invite.

Also Luke, Nice job covering for Frankie. I look forward to more of your posts. Also nice Mr. Chief but I am sorry to say it wasn't "Mr. Chief." You should creat your own foe-halo character. Maybe a spin on Cortana, Johnson, or The Arbitr. Oh well if you do we will have to compare your masterpieceses to the extreme talent of Frankie.

Good Job : )

The missle pod is just a big gun that shoots little missles and is held the way the spartan holds the chaingun when he brings it to its portable state. They're pretty cool, but the only map that it's on in the Beta is Valhalla. BUNGIE I LOVE YOU THANKS FOR PICKING ME!!

No, there is no warthog like that, not in the maps we play in the beta. The missile pod itself is just an entire separate gun, but is big like the turret. And the turret isn't taken off the warthog, btw, it's taken from a stationary area on the ground.

  • 05.13.2007 6:40 PM PDT

Sweet, I can't wait to play! Bungie.net and Halo 3.com still have different Beta start times. I'm so confused.

I would like to point out that I wish at least one thing Halo had in it's multiplayer action is to have a map going from day to night like from going from dusk to dawn. To see the sun setting as teams still battling it out going into the night. Looking at the lights from buildings or poles illuminate the night. Or seeing parts of the armour light up at night, then watching it all go straight into the day...awesome.
The maps also need some disrubtion to break up tactics from teams like the Flood, or brutes just attacking each team messing up gameplay. Just need background enteraction that's all. Not so much for the Beta, but for when the actual game ships.
