hnnnng

(Surround sound finally justified)
To give you an idea my setup is;

Onkyo TXSR707
Earthquake Platine Noiree front / center
Klipsch Satellite rears
Paradigm Seismic 110
Earthquake Q10B Tactile Transducer (150watt amp atm)

This game sounds fucking awesome. Unfortunately it was 1am when I started playing so didn't have it up, can't wait till tomorrow when I can really get it going :)

Hey Frankie, I'm loving the console and controller design of the LE console, but I think it would look much better if all the buttons were blue, or a blue/white combination. Does Microsoft restrict what you're able to do color-wise with the buttons?

I should no better by now, but I am still blown away but what they can squeeze out of the 360 graphically. There are moments where you will stand on a cliff and just look out into the vastness, and admire the scenery. Its so funny that the last time I did this was Halo CE.

You do kind of get lost in the worlds.

I remember that one of the transforming d-pad controllers had grey, black and white buttons

That place there.
Any of you want to run a BTB party tonight?



That's a shame. Go grab a copy tonight man!
I did that with Reach and had to endure a terrible French dub, I'm not too eager to do it again.

What really pisses me off is that the delivery estimate moved 2 days right after the game shipped. Hoping they're way off the mark. It usually takes 3 days, not 5.

This can't be happening!

My copy was supposed to be shipped today but instead I received an e-mail that there was a problem with my credit card...

I'm using a prepaid credit card to order from the UK (don't want any of that German voice acting) and only now did I realize that for some reason there wasn't enough money on it.

Crap. Now I've got to wait another 1 or even 2 days until they ship it... that is, if no other problems arise because my credit card might not have the necessary coverage until Wednesday.

I can't believe it. I thought I had made sure to put enough money on it months ago!

By the way to everyone. Campaign is the most mouth gaping experience since Gears of War 1 as far as graphics go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just played a bit of the campaign. Holy shit the graphics. Holy shit the sound. This is incredible.

343 was supposed to uphold Bungie's legacy, not make them look like shit. :(
Holy shit ya'll are killing me. My 60" Pioneer Kuro and 5.1 surround are ready!

Knowing my copy of Halo 4 is sitting in the postoffice just 2km away and I can't reach it is killing me.

For some reason the first achievement in the campaign won't unlock for me.

Edit: Okay it did apparently, it was just delayed for some reason.

I am pretty sure I am going through Halo withdrawls right now.

All I want to do is finish my day at work and get home to play more Halo! I haven't felt like this since Halo 3. It's funny, I was pretty much ready to give up on the Halo franchise after how little interest I had in Reach, but Halo 4 has 100% renewed my passion for the game.

Can't wait until everyone gets the game tonight, it will be tons of fun to get big GAF games going.

It's not really just the hype that's getting to me, I haven't played Halo since CE and 2 (both of which I thoroughly enjoyed) and I've been craving it. Given my financial situation, not gonna be able to get a 360 until Black Friday/Christmas.

Amazing how the Halo franchise is still a system seller. A true remnant from the age of "killer apps". It's gonna be fun to see this kind of thing play out again with PS4/720.

was worried splitscreen was going to make big sacrifices visually but damn it still looks good as far as campaign goes (haven't gone online yet)

I mean, even the shadowing on your gun is still there!

My Amazon preorder says "Shipping Soon", but I got charged last night. This is normal, right? I don't normally preorder things from Amazon that I actually am this concerned with getting on day 1. Usually I just get a package around release day and am like "oh right I ordered this!"

Still tomorrow. I'm sure it's fine, but I've had times before where the estimated arrival date was still listed as one thing even several days after that date had passed, so I just wanna make sure errthang going smoothly.
