After delaying logging onto Xbox Live for a little Halo 3, I finally made the plunge over the weekend. Please note that if you have no idea what I just said - this post probably isn't for you....haha!
Anyway, the first few rounds were ok, but a little rough. Although the controls are close enough to Halo 2, it's more about knowing the maps you are on. Success usually doesn't depend on team strength, but who controls the power weapons and choke points. Any noob can throw a grenade and launch a missile into the only entrance to a base. Overall there were some good matches and I progressed up to Sargent before the weekend was over which isn't too bad.
During one of my matches though I came across another player that had already logged over 600 Halo 3 matches! If that number wasn't enough to make me scratch my head, I checked out his profile and the guy had 18,500 achievement points! Now, I'm all for having fun and trying out new games.....but 18,500 points?
I would have mocked him and suggested he get outside a bit more, but I was too busy running away from his Battle Rifle shots like a little girl!
