wait what? halo 2 .5 ?????? and xbox 2 isnt out

Expected release for Xbox2 is (I believe) Holiday 2005. Expected release for Halo3 is the year 2568 (That is if they're planning on making it good). Halo 2.5 on the other hand, may be a worthwhile propsition instead of making another Halo3. Halo 2.5 would be more managable for them. Although I would support the use of downloadable content more than I would the release of another game I'll have to pay 50$ for. If it is only half a game, I do expect them to sell it for no more than 25$ though. In fact, I want them to give Halo 2.5 to me, for free! I paid 50$ for half of a game when I bought Halo2, so they'll be handing out lots of free copies of Halo 2.5. Thanks Bungie! ---Wanted9867---

dude it comes out febuary 3 trust me i work for bungie man give me a email for pics at halo2skooler@yahoo.com

HALO 2.5!? whats goin on wiv dat? i hope its not just 4 xbox 2 cos i'm not getin anuva xbox just 4 dat game.

are you serious that you will not buy xbox 2 for halo 2.5, they won't make it on xbox because the graphics are going to be new technology, it wouldn't make sense, I am calling you a NOOB, and an ASS PACKAGE, comeon just buy it and continue the dream on being the masterchief. P.S. I am a huge nerd for halo 2 and if you don't buy halo 2.5 for xbox 2 I will kik your ASS!!!!!!!!

The only tim e I can ever play Halo 2 is at my friends house cause she has it!I just want to be able to play in on the computer or at least a demo!

Halo 2 has not been announced for the PC, and so there is no demo.

Some of us, myself included, doubt there will ever be such a port. Halo 1 was ported because of a promise Bungie made to its many fans who are/were PC and Mac gamers; there's never been any such promise with respect to Halo 2.

I heard so much about Halo from the Xbox people and how it was like the greatest game ever and that PC people could not play the game, nana nana boo boo, etc. so when I finally got Halo for the PC, I though, "Oh man this is going to be good.". I played on my PC and was very sad to see that the game is ridiculous kid stuff. Stupid looking aliens taunting me, retarded weapons, etc. it looked like some sort of a Sesame Street game or something so I Sh@itcanned it and that was the end of Halo. Now for Christmas I got Halo Combat Evolved and am wondering what to do with it. The box is unopened so I could exchange it for something else that I might actually like, Sands Of Time perhaps, or I could just open the box and install it and see what the deal is. What do you people think, is Combat Evolved a fun game or is it just BS? I do not like Quake Arena so if it is anything like that or UT then I really don't want it. All of the Quake games were super excellent (I think that the original Quake was one of the best.) but Quake 3 was mega BS. No single play at all and online play was dumb, you appear in the game, immediately get killed by some gun kiddie, and this repeats over and over. Nowhere to hide and stalk, just appear and get killed, that sucked.

Combat Evolved was just the marketing catchphrase for Halo 1, the game that was first released on the Xbox and then ported (poorly, many say) to Windows and the Mac.

There is another "Halo CE" on Windows which is Halo Custom Edition (not to be confused with Combat Evolved. This is a special version of Halo to be used with the game's editing tools to create new levels. To use Custom Edition you need the original game. It is a free download.

If you say you've played Halo, then you've already played "Combat Evolved", and if you didn't like it then, you probably won't now.

Having said that, I like Halo a lot and so do many people. However, if you are expecting a game with stealth, Halo (and Halo 2) are not games for you. They are science fiction action games, not tactical shooters.

It won't do much to ask if people here like it-- this is a Bungie and a Halo fansite, so if people are reading here, it's probably because they like Halo and other Bungie games.

learn it! :D

I would buy any halo that is put out on the market, because halo 2 like halo 1 wants you for more blood and action, and what would be of our hero Master chief? if it stoped at halo 2. I for one would be very disapointed and want to know more of the story. Remember good things can talk a while, and then when you get that good thing it is great!

yo whats up dude halo 2 ROCKs!!!

I would get halo 2.5 for xbox 2 if it is out by then. but then i would have halo 2 on xbox and halo 2.5 on xbox 2. Unless of course xbox games will be compatible with xbox 2. Halo 2.5 will only be a few more campain levels any way but i would still get halo 2.5 on xbox 2. Oh ya and dous and one know when xbox 2 or halo 2.5 will be coming out?

WHAT ABOUT THE YOUNG AND NOT SO RICH KIDS THAT ARE JOBLESS CAUSE THEY ARNT OLD ENOUGH!!!!!!?????!!!!!!! :(

What do you want, a "buy Xbox 2 and Halo 3 for underprivileged brats" Foundation?

Halfway around the world, giant waves are washing away children that have never seen an Xbox in their lives... so chill, it's not that great an injustice if you don't end up playing Halo 2.5... assuming they even make it.

During the holiday season. Rumors

Wow, news of more halo so soon? I've got to say it, I'm impressed. And of a second X Box no less(yes it would be nice if Original X Box titles would play on such a console). Anyways, back to the topic. Clearly I haven't heard of any of this until now,(need to check in more). About this "Halo 2.5"; Has that even been settled on as an actual title for the game? Is it even really its own game or simply an extension or even just an addon to Halo 2? Has its possible future existence been either confirmed or denied by Bungie or Microsoft, or is it simply an urban myth? All of these things are questions I would like to have answered before I actually decided for sure wether I would(or even could) buy it. That is why I voted a definite mabey. However, the news that there might already be plans underway for a new game is to say the least, exciteing.

It's really nothing more than a rumor. I was mostly curious to see if people would really want to spend money again in less than a year for either the same game for the new Xbox, or on a slightly expanded version. Looks like people would :) ---- Rampant for over five years.

I would bet nearly anything: Urban Legend

halo2 is a hot game and i think most people would buy an xbox2 just to get halo 2.5 because i think im safe in saying everyone likes halo2

Well i dont knows if i would buy halo2 2.5 because come on think about the little people like me.im 13 i dont make that much money[I DONT EVEN HAVE A JOB!]it might be a waste of money but i dont know,if it is just like the 1 for normal BX i wouldnt buy it.

lmfao nice one narc...

for more details email me at halo2skooler@yahoo.com

Quit lying, idiot. Nobody believes you. Bungie employees don't offer to leak information, and they don't use Comcast. ---- Rampant for over five years.

you are stupid

$20 bucks says that bungie will throw out halo 3 for x-box with the halo 2 engine just to finish up the game. That or they might do the same thing they did with halo 2, make us wait for another 3 years... its a loose loose dilima

I wouldn't mind Halo 3 on the Halo 2 engine, if they could just fix some of the new issues they created that the Halo 1 engine didn't have (texture pop, sword bugs, etc).

Heck, I'd have been happy if Halo 2 used the Halo 1 engine but had new units, weapons, locations, vehicles, and at least brought the story to a more convenient point to stop than it did.

Try as they might, nobody can convince me that Halo 2 ended as envisioned. It's NOT really a cliffhanger. It just ends awkwardly.

If it ended as you were leaping in midair onto the Control Room platform, with the Index activating the Halo, unsure if it is going to fire or not, unsure if the Master Chief would make the leap or fall to his death, THAT would have been a cliffhanger (although I'm not sure anyone would have been more angry at that ending than they are at the one they got).

As it is, the whole "Halos on standby" threat simply doesn't seem immediate enough to qualify as a cliffhanger.

Gravemind and Cortana are about to sit down and have tea, Master Chief has arrived home and we already know that Hood isn't going to open fire on him.

The forerunner ship might be an impressive threat, but we have no evidence of it yet.

The ending could have either brought events to a logical and emotional satisfying conclusion while only hinting at the future (as Halo 1 did) or ended in medias res, with an immediate threat.

It does neither; I think that's why people are really pissed about it.

You know, i think that the only reason that people like you insuklt other people in such a way as this is because you are really insecure on the inside. so, next time, before you go and start finding fault with people and flaming them, make sure that you, too, are blameless, hypocrite. That said, please shut up and only use the forums if you have something USEFUL to say. good day.

Who are you replying to?

When does Halo 2.5 come out

is there gonna be a halo 3 if so where will it take place

[quote=narcogen]Halo 2 is like... Air, You cant live without it... Unless your one of those stupid grunts, who breathe that other stuff...Stupid Grunts, I KILL THOSE GRUNTS!!!! WHO'S WITH ME?!?!?![/quote]

no, halo2 is as good as i want a game - the standby-ing n00bs

It will take place on earth with maser cheif trying to stop he flood from invading because thats where halo 2 ends.

that is a fucken stupid idea

WTF NOW THEY GETTING HALO 2.5? NEXT THING U KNOW ITS GOING TO BE HALO 3 THEN 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 AND 8!?

Think for a second dumbass, if they make Halo 2.5 it'll probably be so that they don't have to rush on Halo 3 because Microsoft is making them rush and people are mad because they think it'll turn out shitty because they're rushing Bungie's developement.

I dont really care what they call the next Halo, but Bungi seems to know what there doing. they havn't let me down yet so give these guys some credite

What happened? When the game was over, I wanted to cry. I was never expecting it to end like that. I was ready to kill some more aliens. Man, when is the new Halo coming out. Y'all are killing me. I want to but it right now. Is it going to be called Halo 2.5 or something because this one isn't really finished? Please send me your comments if you know anything at Yzarc2k4@aol.com. (That's crazy spelled backwards.)

hey, We all know how insanely wicked halo 2's multiplayer is. But i wish i could say the same about the campaign. My question is simply if halo 2.5 is gonna focus on the other half of the campaign without changing anything, or is it gonna be a whole new level of the halo world. Thanx 4 listenin. Jaxon. nothing_suss_00@homail.com (ps. Halo 2 is gr8, but nuthin to get ur jollies off. lets hope halo 2.5 kicks more arse) Oh, and can u send me some pics of xbox 2? Cheers bois
