Halo 3 Premier Party
I went to the Halo 3 Premier Party at the Microsoft offices in Bloomington, MN last night and had lots of fun. My first impression was "damn those graphics look sweet!" There were times playing/watching battles in Valhalla that it seemed as though I was watching a movie. The Spartan Laser proved exciting - very effective against vehicles. The Gravity Hammer is a lot of fun - gives you that satisfying brutish feeling you get dispatching foes - similar to the chainsaw gun in Gears of War. Everyone seemed to be having a great time.
After the party I went to the Wal Mart in Faribault, MN and waited in the long line to get my copy. Should be a good first day of sales for Microsoft!
