Halo 3

Obviously I need to look at the Halo games, because I must be missing something. On that note, this has got to be the funniest gaming comic I've seen lately, and it's Halo related.

J.t.Qbe comments: A few years ago I thought I must be missing something too, so I rented Halo 2 for my Xbox. I learned that I wasn't missing anything that the PC hadn't already had for years. First-person shooter? Check. Online play? Check. Unfortunately it wasn't nearly as fun as most any FPS I'd ever played. I think it was better than Quake, and that's as far as I'll go.

I think the Halo phenomenon is due to the fact that all these things are now available to any Joe Sixpack who can plunk down a few hundred for a console and hook it up. Something like the AOLing of shooters and online gaming.

A.T. Hun comments: But you just have to watch the Zero Punctuation review of Halo 3. The caution: it does contain some minor probably-not-safe-for-work items.

J.t.Qbe comments: That's the funniest thing I've seen/heard in a long time, till I watched his other reviews. I think the Tomb Raider Anniversary review is my favorite.

TeamFortress 2 Intro Videos

I've been watching the released Team Fortress 2 videos on the Steam Video release page, and they just CRACK me up. My presonal favorite is Meet the Heavy, but the Engineer one is awesome as well. I'm looking forward to a few more of these. I just wish I had the time to commit to online gaming nowadays ...
