That's pretty good for 2 hours of music without explosions and people yelling. I don't care if you steal it, but God does...

Plenty to hold us off until the BWU. Thanks urk!

My favourite Halo 2 memory... I remember years ago, before the 360 launched and before I got live, me and two of my friends would play a game we called "ubernaut." It was a Juggernaut variant where the Juggernaut had infinite ammo, damage reduction, and a 4x overshield. The only grace the non-juggs were given was random weapon spawns, as there were no weapons on map. The game basically progressed with the Juggernaut hunting us down across Coagulation and destroying us, until both normals spawned or picked up off corpses Rockets and the Sniper Rifle. Even then, the juggernaut was nigh unkillable, and it was a team effort just to unseat him. We all knew which of the three of us was the best at it; it was truly a competition for second. These games would last hours, but I thought they were both awesome and hilarious. Thank you Halo 2 team for this possibility.

I was having a lot of fun in Halo 2 on the 14th. It is sad to see it go.

Thank you, Captain K Mart.

All great things must come to an end eventually. Good, good memories have come from this game. Thank you, Bungie.

The Sea monkey's were one of my favorite things about Halo 2. Great to see them get a little recognition. :)

Oh man, good times were had back in those days. I hadn't even thought much about it until recently, when it was announced that original Xbox Live service would be discontinued. It was sad to play it for the last time the other night.

Thank God it still has an awesome campaign to play around in.

At least we have Vista (I will totally screw Microsoft if they take that away, too).

Not to be shallow, but what were those 'prizes' involved with wednesday? I'm rather intrigued to find out what they were/are.

Good riddance.

Yeah, thanks for the negative input. Now go back to your corner.

Don't be irreplaceable; if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

One love <3

Miss it already.

Many bulls encompass me; strong bulls of Bashan surround me;
they open wide their mouths at me, like a ravening and roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint;
my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast;
my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws;
you lay me in the dust of death. -Psalm 22:12-15

So it goes.

I was idle during school. Got home and was disconnected. =( Pretty sure I was in the last hundred or so. I had some great memories.

I didn't play Halo 2 much after Halo 3 came out, maybe 5 or 6 games total, maybe not even that.

Just knowing that I won't have the option to play it online ever again is sad.

One thing I can say is, is that I finally accomplished my goal of reaching level 20 in Team Slayer.

  • 04.16.2010 2:17 PM PDT

My favorite Halo 2 memory was the first time i played with 3 friends. It the first time id ever played H2.

We played swords only, first to 50 kills wins.

I won 50,49,48,47. The only reason i remember the scores is because of how close the game was.
