    Do you think that the Flood will make an appearance in Halo 2?

    possibly theres three halos but guilty spark and sentinels are dead and mc would probably warn unsc forces not to release any flood they could just destroy the halos from orbit but then the game would be boring.

    United Nations Space Corps.

    Also, Guilty Spark didn't die. If you watch ALL THE WAY after the credits, you'll see a little cutscene of him fling in space, without a scratch.

    really, crap well then scracth what I said I then I think definitly more halos and maybe flood. But I felt they disrupted the grudge between covies and humans. Espically since on the flood levels you had no more human allies and the covies are the least of your worries.

    That would really suck if we had to fight those flood btrds again. But since they are coming back I wonder how it will afect fighting on Earth.


    I dont know if its been explained but how did the convenant learn of the location of Earth?

    Thank the stars for KOTOR's release this week, it should keep my mind off of Halo 2 for at least 3 or more months.

    Are any stores taking pre-orders yet?
    I'm sure there will be millions of copies available upon release, but I still want to be 100% certain I get it, and won't have to run around to various stores looking for an available copy to purchase.

    No way. Bungie's being saying for awhile it's gonna be 1Q 2004. Don't tease a body that way, man. :p

    As the article sez, it's just a rumor. I'm not buying it 'til official word comes down from Bungie.

    I mean...woo...Half-life 2 and Halo 2 coming out within 2 months of one another, right at the Holiday season? FPS heaven. It's too sweet to be true.

    However, the incentive to release it just in time for Live! renewals IS awfully convenient. However, I'm hoping they won't jump the gun and release a less-than-perfect game just for this reason alone. Hell, I'm pissed enough with Eidos launching the crap-fest Angel of Darkness is just to coincide with the new Lara movie. [face_plain]

    MS and Bungie has said several times that Halo 2 has been pushed back to Q1 2004. It would've been great to have it in November (Xbox 2 year anniversary and Xbox Live 1 year) but it's just not gonna happen.

    Yeah, I'm quite happy with waiting 'til early 2004 (but...no longer than that) so that we can have a worthy sequel.

    The E3 demo being on the latest OXM disc has not helped the wait. In fact, it's making it worse again. Alas, thankfully after 30 hours of KOTOR, I'm still not finished. After I'm done with that, though, it'll be up to both ESPN NHL Hockey and ESPN NFL Football to hold me over until 2004.

    Not soon enough indeed. I thought KOTOR would tide me over for a few months to lessen the HALO 2 drought, but no such luck: KOTOR was too awesome to put down and have already finished it in one way or another. What else is there to look forward to now? Ghost Recon: Island Thunder? Rainbow Six 3 (if it comes out this year, that is)? This wait is gonna be teh suck... :(
