If I had my Xbox at school with me I'd probably fail out. HL2 is already going to test my will power.

I was a big fan of the first game, definitely looking forward to the sequel. What are the extras in the special edition?

Yikes, I need to hurry up and finish Halo. I think I'm close to being done so hopefully I'll finish it just in time for Halo 2 and with everything still fresh in my mind.

Yes it looks very good though games tend to look nicer on preview videos than they actually are... but still, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of halo2 the game looks awesome!! It almost makes me forget about hl2

Let me be the first to put in the obligatory whine about this game not coming out for the PC.

I'll be at the EB at Golf and Roselle roads in Schaumburg at midnight to grab my copy. Anyone else doing the midnight run?

Yup, I'll be at my local Gamestop at midnight on 11/9 to pick it up. It's just been so long since I've done one of those, the last (and only other time) was for my Dreamcast on 9/9/99 .

The game certainly sounds improved over the original, it's nice that they didn't have to resort to repeatative environments and such like the first Halo. The only thing that kinda disapoints me from what I've seen is the lack/removal of the real-time shadows (remember that first Halo 2 video? Why doesn't it look like that anymore?). Other than that, the game certainly seems to have enough new toys in it to keep me busy for a while. Lets see how good I can get with the plasma sword

Oh, and that's a kinda crappy version of that video, if someone knows of a place I could throw it onto I have a higher-quality, 30 meg version of it. And for those who haven't seen it, here's the 60-second commercial that's being shown on TV for the game: http://www.gametrailers.com/gt_vault...o_tvextend.mov
