Halo 2 for the PC is supposed to be coming soon. They said it was done and only needed DX10 (on Vista) to debut before the game went on sale. So far, I've seen nothing new about the game.

Halo 3 is indeed 360 only. I _may_ come to the PC but probably only as a port. I'm not familiar with Halo Wars. Is that what they're calling Halo 2 for the PC, now?

I must confess I haven't checked on Halo 2 PC in probably six months.

Halo Wars is the new game where everyone is in Spartan Suits and the elites are cool and creepy, they have big *** claws and stuff... anyway, if you've ever played something like SW: Republic Commando or Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter it should be something like that...

Well let me lay it out for you quick: There's Halo 3 coming out for Xbox360 later this year and chances are it will be later brought to PC. Halo 2 is due out for PC also soon. Halo Wars is not being made by Bungie, as an RTS (Real Time Strategy). Ever play Age of the Empires? It's going to be just like that but with halo characters and settings. It's actually being made by the same company that made Age of the Empires. And that is being released initially and exclusively for Xbox360 once again, BUT that does not mean that i won't come to PC later, cause it might, that we can only see with time.

I sure hope that Halo 3 is more like Halo 1, Halo 2 was okay but Halo 1 will always be the best...

The kids?

As for the shield, it's a SCI-FI game. You _have_ to have shields in Sci-Fi. How else would anyone know that it's Sci-Fi?

Doom was a Sci-Fi game. They had armor in Doom right? Nobody complained about that did they?

Well I'll tell ya, I could tell just by looking at the Spartans that it is a sci-fi game. How about the aliens, the guns, the spaceships and vehicles. You don't need shields in order for it to be sci-fi at all...

Noo! Leave Halo alone.

But the shields thing is sorta true. But it's "plausible" or something. I mean, it's the future, right?

Anyway, if you don't like the shields... play it on Legendary. Hell, even on Hard, Master Chief can take less bullets than Sam Fisher on Expert. Well, close.
(BTW... in case you didn't notice... I like Halo http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif)

But Halo 3 will rock. An awesome storyline, water simulators, soft body simulators for grass, real-time reflections, semi-destructible environments... oh yeah, heaps fun gameplay... it will be gooooood.

I'm not buying it JUST for Halo 3 Beta... but it is a small reason why.

Actually we do know that cause if you read Frakie's weekly updates he drools over all that stuff for us! I will also be getting the Beta woohoo! With rule 3 as well. I believe the Halo series and the Splinter Cell series were the greatest games ever made!

Age of Empires is what the second Star Wars RTS was based on. (don't even mention the first one "Force Commander"... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif You might wake the Devil)

Empire at war is a completely different engine than that. I prefer the older engine of Age of Empires. Empire at War just doesn't "click" for me.

You can download a demo of Age of Empires from Microsoft's website if you're curious about it. It's surprisingly good to be a Microsoft game. Ensemble Studios is the one that actually produced it and probably why it's better than most Microsoft published games.

Actually, there have been 3 Star Wars RTS games. Force Commander, Galactic Battlegrounds and Empire at War.
