Halo: The End of an Era

When Halo 2 launched on Xbox back in November 2004, I had no idea the game would become so influential in my life. Xbox LIVE was Halo 2. Over the years I made many amazing friends on Halo 2, friends that I would spend hours and hours (and days) playing with. I had the best times.

I am so grateful to have met such amazing people on Halo 2. When Xbox LIVE was shut down for Xbox in April 2010, I started playing Halo 2 PC more. While my computer was not exactly a gaming PC, I was able to play the game and enjoy playing online and remember the good old times.

Unfortunately, over 8 years of playing Halo 2, an era will be coming to an end. On February 15, the online servers for Halo 2 PC will be shut down. This information is located at the bottom of a long blog article, which is rather sad. The article says only 20 or so people are playing online.

A petition was created to try and save Halo 2 PC, but how often does a video game company listen to its community?

When (or if) Halo 2 PC shuts down, this will be my final goodbye to the Halo series, and goodbye to 343i. On to new adventures! (With Bungie) : )

Editor’s note: This post is in sadness that over years of supporting Halo 2, capitalism has to prevail (again)… it’s not fair.

UPDATE: Halo 2 PC’s Servers has been extended until June 2013.

    These are the type of doorways you’d like to give your kitchen doors a new look. Basically, you can hardly deny that they offer a stylish, modern appearance that is hard to find with other solutions. Check my website to know the employees, they got to know the width and height of the door frame and drive it in. There is very little manual work involved in making these doors. Swadhisthana is positioned at the tailbone, two finger-widths above Muladhara.

  3. You’re reading this article, part II, discussion of folding/tent/pop-up campers, toy haulers, and park models will be discussed. Many of the twin-over-twin sliding patio doors can be converted to a sofa, and computer desk. Now, they are priced very reasonably and will fall very well within your budget. It has multiple advantages like, saving up space and costs, comfort and flexibility of use.

  4. Currently, the fascinating component listed here
    is that number theoretical discussion will have
    the capacity to teach you as much as your firsthand
    encounter will.
