10 Halo 3 Links

Description

The highly anticipated Halo 3 release happens Monday at midnight. Here are a few cool Halo 3 links to get you more excited (if that is even possible) until you can play the blockbuster game:
[Update: Too many good links to stop at 10]

  1. First of all, if you haven't checked out the Halo 3 site, stop what you are doing, and go see it. Right now! The site, using Silverlight technology, is so cool that you don't even have to be a rabid Halo fanboy to appreciate it. Here, you can take a 360 degree tour of the Halo 3 world, taking custom screenshots along the way. The screenshots can then be used as wallpaper, posted to your blog or website.
  2. If you're an XBox Live Silver member, visit the Best Buy website, where they are offering 3 days of free online gameplay using XBox Live Gold. You also might win a Pontiac G6 GXP with a custom Halo 3 paint job.
  3. Get some sweet Halo 3 action figures.
  4. Visit the Windows Mobile website to pick up some free Halo ringtones and wallpapers for your phone.
  5. Get a Halo 3 edition Zune. Besides having killer custom graphics & packaging, the Halo 3 Zune comes loaded with music, artwork, trailers, and videos from Halo, Halo 2, and Halo 3 as well as an exclusive episode of Red vs. Blue.
  6. Watch a live action short film based on the Halo franchise over on MSN.
  7. Stock up on Halo 3 Dew to fuel those first few days and nights where you will be calling in...cough..."sick" to work. 
  8. XBox 360 Halo Edition. Yeah.
  9. Grab a Halo Covenant replica weapon or laser tag rifle.
  10. Pick up a Halo fan suit for the win (if you have a spare $20k.)
  11. Check out some of the Halo 3 game guide and Halo 3 videos in HD via Silverlight. (thanks, Sean)
  12. See a couple of lucky guys (who try to) drive a real Warthog.
  13. And see an 'unbagging' of the Halo 3 press bag (I want to be press!)

    Have you tried the Mountan Dew Game Fuel?  Sadly it actually *tastes* like cough syrup.  

    Oh well, at least the can looks cool Smiley

    Very Sweet!

    What's going on here?  We're on the eve of what will be one of the greatest game launches in history and Tina has been absent for over a month - very distressing!  I seriously hope that she will have something to say when Halo launches.

    While I wouldn't mind chilling at EB on midnight, I have work and school to deal with...so I preordered it way back when and it will come to me.  EB online FTW!  Victory!!!
