Halo 2 Tip: Stop Dropping Out of Games

Here’s a typical game of Halo 2, if you blindly get matched into a “Big Team Battle”: You start to play a round. One of the two teams loses that first round. The “cry-baby” gamers from the losing team drop out of the game, leaving a team very shorthanded.

Why are people such dicks? Genetics, probably, but thankfully Bungie punishes those that have to live with a head in the shape of a penis tip:

Q: Does it count as a loss if I quit out of a ranked game early? A: Yes. You automatically get last place.

Don’t be a Deathmatch dick!

Halo 2: Midnight Madness

I remember when CompUSA hosted a “midnight madness” for IE4. I stopped by my local place and there were about a dozen Geeks milling around for a free T-shirt and CD. I was later in those days – still trying to maintain a college-esque life – so what the hell, right? For Halo 2, I’d simply call it “madness”. Screw the midnight. I stopped by my local EB Games tonight and there are already forty people in front of the store. At 6:30. Forty people. Some women, too, which has got to be a milestone for a video game release. A bunch of them playing in a mini-tournament in split screens, but there were skateboards, backpacks, and a couple of computer totes/briefcases marking their place in line. I took the chance to pre-order a copy there and will probably pick it up at 12:30 or even tomorrow… madness!
