Bummer, unfortunately I am going out of town tomorrow (day after the release or the second emergence as some are calling it) so I will postpone buying Halo 3 till I get back, a whole 6 days post release. (What a loser) (yeah but I have a job) (yeah but your not playing Halo 3!!!) (point taken)
I am going to try and avoid spoilers as much as I can, but that may be difficult. Bungie.net list a good 50K people playing H3 at a time on their servers. Amazing.
So think of me as I play Brain Age 2 on my new DS during my business meeting.
