The HALO 3 BETA ended and BUNGIE pulled the plug right at 12:01AM PST. The HALO 3 BETA will be sorely missed as I really enjoyed playing over the last 3 weeks and 4 days. BUNGIE showed us that they have learned from mistakes of the past by balancing the weapons and gameplay in HALO 3 by adding the Assault Rifle, improving the Needler, toning down the Rocket Launcher, improving accuracy and much more. BUNGIE is also taking LIVE integration to the next level with stats galore and sharing of saved game videos. The complete version of HALO 3 should prove to be one of the greatest games of all-time and definitely one of the best and most popular multiplayer games of all-time. :)
Now that the BETA is gone, the time has come focus on Forza 2 which is by far one of the best racing simulators on the planet. The damage modeling and real-world physics are nothing short of amazing and easily makes up for the games lack of pretty pretty visuals.
