I'll probably do that since I used to play COD and it's the closest to BF3, there are still some buttons that don't match up, but it'll be less of a learning curve for me to start out with.

I was looking through a new Gizmodo article showing every Microsoft hardware device made and I saw this. Did anyone ever own this??? I'm not even sure how it's worn.

anyone ever been to best buy's midnight releases?

been to gamestop's before it usually goes.. show up at 10. pay it off. that is your number. go home come back at 1155 and wait for them to call your number....pretty boring.

back when I worked at gamestop during halo 2 we had a lan party out in parking lot and food delivered...not the same anymore.

but just curious on what to expect from best buy

Dunno the best buy closest to me usually has a radio station and tents with the game for anything this big. They might be saving that for next week though =\ (Multi-platform).

The Microsoft Stores apparently are serving pizza and free prizes. would it be wrong to go there for that stuff and not pick up the game? note: I already ordered online.

Hi onlysublime, been playing since Saturday night ... IMO Halo 4 normal feels like "easy" and heroic feels like "normal" in old Halo games.

hmm... this seems to run counter to the reviews. reviewers even mentioned that they were going to set heroic or legendary to start but were advised against that strategy, and they concurred after trying it.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow! smile.gif

So you're saying that there's no equivalent to legendary in Halo 4? that the whole game is easier than previous ones?

Having ordered from the online microsoft store about 24-27 hours ago, I am surprised to get tracking info that says I will get it tomorrow, release day by 3pm. Guess I will see you guys in the next couple days. Curtailed expectations here though. Silently interested in that Dominion game. Sounds more epic than other, more typical halo game modes. Thinking it could be compared to 35 minute Battlefield 3 intense matches.

My copy left the FedEx station this morning at 7:30! YES!

If I didn't have any kids, I would have taken off work, picked it up from a store this morning, and played all day. I will be eagerly staring at the box until my kids go to bed. Feel free to add me if you haven't, I'm friends with a bunch of people from here already through BF3. GT: JShmoopy.

Mine shall be in this afternoon. Actually ordered a controller yesterday from amazon also and they shipped it a day early with halo. Nice.

I got the promotion code for a skin, I'm guessing that's just because of the pre-order?

BTW, I am looking for a group of people to attack the Legendary play through - I hear it is impossible by yourself.

I usually play after 9PM (till whatever) PST. If that works for you, send me a PM (Choilicious).
