Bungie: Overrated Buffoons

Archived from groups: alt.games.video.xbox (More info?)

Does anyone doubt that, given the money Bungie received from Microsoft,
another company could produce a game superior to Halo 2?

Halo 2 stands out because the competetion is that bad and that
underfunded. Bungie isn't special. It's an artificial construct propped
up by Microsoft.

Just something that I felt should be said.

    Alas, the biggest (but by far the best) halo2 troll has preached from
    the pulpit again.

    Doesn't it get old bitching about Bungie, halo2, etc? who cares?

    Watch the documentary footage on the bonus disc... they admitted they
    sat around doing nothing for 2 years. They pulled the E3 footage out of
    their ass then had to re-do everything from scratch.

    Really, it's a horrible abuse of a fanbase.

    Were there any days in grade school or high school in which you
    didn't get your clueless ass kicked?

    Just had to ask.

    Well, if Halo 2 was rushed then rush me out some more games like it.

    I love Halo 2's multiplayer and even after 4 months I still play online
    about every other day.

    The only mistake made in this thread, is the rare typo by me.
    Competition it is. What they say about sleep is true. Guess that's why
    I liked the movie 'Insomnia'.

    Are you kidding me the single player game is nothing more then a be
    continue, and the multiplayer is riddled with bugs that people on xbox live
    can exploit. People have been waiting for this game for 3yrs, and the game
    feels like it's unfinished...

    You sound like you're STILL pissed that you aren't
    good enough to work for Bungie...get over it
    already. It's not like you got turned down for the
    Senior Prom...again.

    Halo 2 is amazing on Live - its the one game that still dominates my Xbox.

    Although Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is great when you team up with someone
    on campaign.

    Good post, dude.

    Don't get me wrong; I like the game. When I play it though, the feeling
    that it was rushed or is somehow incomplete always comes to mind.
