M$ is up to their old tricks again: Halo 2 comes to the PC.

...exclusively for Windows Vista.

That said, unless they remake the game in a new engine, I don't see why people should care (they will though, of course, because they're sheep).

wow you used a dollar sign when spelling MS........

Hmmmm, do you think the halo community will complain about this one "sucking as well" even though it will be an exact port? That was always funny to me, conversation always went like this.

Me: "I played Halo on the PC, it wasnt that good"
mastrchief6969: "thats cause the PC version sux!"
Me: "really, what was different about it?"
mastrchief6969: ".........the graphics!"

never was the awnser to that question "because when it has to compete with the big boys of the PC gaming world, it is mediocre at best"


and oh wow, good thing they are making it a vista exluscive. for a minute there i was questioning weither Vista would be the new operating standard or not.

..........phew im spent, thats enough trolling for now.

Halo 1 sucked on PC not only cause it was an average game, bu the port was crap. Graphics and control were better, but it was jerky cause they cant port to save their lives. Unlike Halo being an awesome xbox seller, people arent going to rush out and buy vista to run this LEGENDARY game. Infact I think majority are going to scoff at the thought.

Im personally looking forward to Vista. Not for Halo 2, of course, but jsut cause Vista is so eye-candy ish it jsut shivers me timbers!

At last a OS with an interface that looks as nifty as a Mac, without being a Mac.

YEs, Im an interface whore. Sue me. :p

Oh and for the inevitable idiots that will pop up and say "Why not get a MAc, Seska?"

LEts just say Im not buying a 7800 for the OS alone. :O

Yeah, if you like getting raped up the ass by Nazi-esque DRM schemes, Vista is for you.
