Halo Hype

It’s everywhere! Everywhere! The amount they’ve spent on advertising for the release of Halo 3 could single handily wipe out third world debt, cure Aids and err, buy me a liquid gold pond with Coy fish that sink to the bottom(they're gold too.)

I’m almost proud to say I’ve never played Halo or Halo 2, like one of those virgins who wear a ring to show their abstinence to the world. I wouldn't take it that far but I did feel like Bungie betrayed me by sleeping with the enemy, when Microsoft bought it out. I used to love the Myth and Marathon series of games they produced. But everyone, including me, will take the big sterlings and run if given the opportunity.

The Halo domination was complete, when before the events of the Trip of Doom, we atepped outside Waterloo Station for a dirty fag, like the lepers we are and I saw across the way Halo 3, with the ridiculous tag line, “Believe” all over the iMax theatre.

If religions conducted their advertising the same way, they’d get a lot more converts. A huge poster of Shiva wielding dual blades with “BELIEVE” under it would definitely make me consider conversion.

As I lack a Xbox 360 or any money for that matter, I won’t be partaking in the ’bragging rights’ when Halo 3 is officially released.

Finish the fight or not, whatever.

Halo 3 is an awesome game, you should at least find a friend who has it and play online...then you'll BELIEVE.
