Co-op with a PC game? How would that work? It wast possible to do that via net access with the console and would require alot more programing I would think. I think the inclusion of net play was a lot more worth while. Play that for co-op.

I recently traded my copy of Halo PC in for store credit. I've been playing Xbox Halo a lot, though, to make up for it (I want to beat Legendary before Halo 2 hits). Custom Edition is definitely worth checking out if you've got your PC disk - there are a number of good multiplayer maps done by the community with a good number of excellent (sounding) mods in the works. The net code in Custom Edition is better than the retail version, if a bit inconsistent.

Your best bet to find out what the Halo PC community is doing is to head over to the Gearbox Halo forums. They get a lot of news from mod groups posted there. Glad to hear you're enjoying it!

I loved Halo. Decent story (read the books, they're not to bad) and decent graphics. The only part of the game that dragged was the Library. Beyond that it was awesome and my first experience with vehicles. I loved the tank.

The multiplayer was fun but I had a lot of problems with the server browser and often the game would refuse to connect - just time out.

Heh, yeah, the Halo books aren't too bad. Well the first and third aren't anyway. I liked the description someone on another forum gave the books, it wents something like:

Think of the first Halo book as a really, really well written fan-fic
Think of the second Halo book as a not-so-well written fan-fic
Think of the third Halo book as a very good science fiction novel
