I just played the demo last night, and at first, I was a little bored, but then I really got into it.

Any one else hooked?

...Wow, that's a disturbing picture. Moving on...

Yes, I really liked the demo. Wasn't a very big fan of Regret (I would have preferred to play as the Arbiter), but it was still very good. Come Tuseday, my wallet will weigh $80 less.

Damn. :( When did you buy your 360? Does the warrant still cover it?

I got the RROD in August of '07 and they let me turn it in for a new Xbox, free. But then again, I got it Christmas '06.

Warranty covers it but I have to wait until summer to bring it back to America to send it away, meaning it likely won't be back before I've left, meaning I'm not going to be able to use my 360 for nearly a year it seems :(

My 360 recently got the RROD too, sent it in (which was a pain because my Best Buy warranty ran out like 2 days before), and the thing came back smashed, but working. I'm gunna have it sent in again to fix it before it stops working. In the mean time, I'm downloading the demo. Got high hopes. :)

I think she looks hot :P

I played Halo Wars on my mate's 360 the other day and I must say, for a console RTS it isn't half bad. I wouldn't pay money for it but it still isn't bad.

PS: Welcome to the world of XBOX. My PS3 hasn't yet put a foot wrong.

Thanks, and she only looks this way to infilitrate the Exchange. :P

Yeah, I'm filling out the Pre-Order form now, sucks that it's $64.56, I'm not buying the Limited Edition...is it really worth the extra $20?

O yeah RROD is amazing. >_> I got it at the beginning of the last month, sent it in, got it back, got a broken disc tray, sent it back in, and am now waiting for it's arrival. So I haven't played my 360 in almost a month.

However I did play the demo and it was pretty cool. I'm so glad that I read all the books too.

It rarely is, unless you're one of those people who buys the action figures and whatnot...

    --Halo Wars game disc.
    --Halo Wars: Genesis, a graphic novel and prequel to the game, based on the first military campaign against the Covenant.
    --Halo 3: Mythic Map Pack, the upcoming new map pack which consists of: --Assembly, Orbital, and Sandbox. They will be included as a one time only code for you to use to get the maps off of the Xbox Live marketplace.
    --6 Leader cards, which show information on all six UNSC and Covenant leaders (three leaders for each faction): Captain James Cutter, Sergeant John Forge, Professor Anders, the Prophet of Regret, The Arbiter and the Brute Army Commander.
    --UNSC Spirit of Fire embroidered ship emblem patch.
    --The Honor Guard Wraith, a special in-game item, used by the Honor Guard of the Covenant.


I'm getting the LE myself. The game, graphic novel, Mythic Maps, and the snazzy metal tin are enough incentive for me.

I've been thinking that for a while now, but I didn't want to comment. Where do you get enough pictures to change your avatar every week like that?

I have a Gamecube. The things may be old, but you can run them for days. I almost did that once. Is Halo Wars for any other system? It sounds sweet.

Well, PS3s suck. :P It comes out tomorrow here. I want, but probably won't get it until my dad gets a job. :(

EDIT: @ Cray: Do people still go there?

I worked til 10:30 PM, and went to the gym, then picked it up at the only place open 24 hours: Wal-Mart.

Swing, played it for a couple hours online. I haven't tried single player yet.

Out of 5 games, I lost three. :P
But I played 3 vs 3, I blame my teammates for two of the three losses. (One was attacked by the Prophet of Regret, and a ghost thirty seconds into the game, and his base was destroyed.... wtf? lol!

The key is to build a temple, if you're covenant, right away. You can either use your hero to "rush" someone, or defend if they try anything. Usually, you're good if all of you are covenant, and send all to one base, then just pick 'em off.

Do the Mythic Map packs come with the normal Halo Wars on only the LE?
