As we get closer to the release of HALO 3, I am reminded of many things… I just cannot recall what they are at the moment, or why they were important when I first thought of them.
With the release of H3, I stop to consider two very important matters that border on the life altering and awe-inspiring.Â First, how to plan the two vacation days I plan of taking in a semi vegetative state in my office at home playing this game, and two, why the hell am I, a nearly forty year old man, spending $125+ dollars on a game?
Again… these are both important questions, and have deep moral meanings, but greater yet are the smaller ones… like how will I fit the port-o-pottie into my office, and what will I eat for the two days I plan on staying in my office after I finally get the game?Â How will I prevent my wife from walking into my office and interrupting me at some crucial moment in game play without doing something that might envolve police and small arms fire?Â How do they get those little malt canisters into the cans of Boddington’s ale?
All Very important questions, and ones that I will delve into more deeply as the release date approaches.
I do wonder, however…Â I put my name on the list and paid my deposit when GameStop first started taking names and deposits for the game, so I am curious as to how far down their list my name is, and how long I will have to wait.
In closing, I will alter a great quote by a great man.
If Winston Churchell were awaiting the release of H3, this is what he might have said:
“Never has a game meant so much, to so many and cost so much!”
