Here’s my obligatory Halo 3 release post.

I went to the Hastings store in Meridian, Idaho for the Halo 2 Tournament. I’ve never played it online so I wasn’t sure what it would be like.
I was pleasantly surprised to see someone there in a full-on Halo costume. It was very impressive, especially since I found out he made it himself out of paper!

The kid had a great outfit with an authentic looking Battle Rifle and Sword. Good thing he lives in Idaho, he might have had a problem if he lived in New York or California. He was there with his Grandmother and friend.

As far as my success in the tournament… I didn’t actually enter but I played with three other guys after the real tournament was over.

I knew I sucked at the game but my score was pathetic. I ended up with a negative score because I made a wrong turn and walked off a ledge into space.

Oh well, it was fun.

UPDATE: I drove about 2 miles to Wal*Mart and stood in line with only about 15 other geeks. 30 minutes later, I was out the door with my Special Edition. They have about 135 games left.
Oh, I almost forgot, I got a Halo Dogtag for standing in line.

Graphics are very good.
