The HBO Mailbag
Friday, June 11, 2004
What the hell happened to the mailbag. It has not been updated since March 21st.
I wan't planning to do this for another few months, but something about your letter made me think. Specifically, it made me think "Why don't you update the mailbag right now?" I tried to ignore it for as long as possible by yielding to various darker urges, but it kept nagging at me, so here we are. Then Louis demanded that I sober up and give him a reason not to have me dragged out of my office and ejected from the building on the spot, so I had to pretend to work hard for at least an hour or two, which brings us to here, and the new Mailbag update. Thanks for the help!
Hello I've got an idea...sort of.
We already tried this with Halo 1, and that's not an experience we want to repeat. After Louis had set up all the Xboxes, food, networking, and so on, he threw open the doors to the hordes of joyful fans... but no one ever showed up. He gave up after 6 hours, played a little solo, fed the food to his dogs, shut everything down, and forgot about it. Well, it turned out that since nobody knew where or when this party was, everyone who was planning to attend had shown up at a different time and to a different place. An epidemic of single-player Halo games had broken out across the nation, which was quite an accomplishment as none of the players had received their Xboxes yet. After we had sorted everything out and paid everyone's bail, we vowed never to go through that again. So, sorry, but no go.
hell-can you kill my that jackass that lives down the
street from me? i'll give you a dollar. thanks
Maybe if he was a jackal I could have helped.
THE CODE IS SPARTAN 11 AND THE CODE MAKES U HAVE GREATER DEFENCE TO MAKE
SURE IT WORKS GO TO CAMPAGHN AND MAKE A NEW PROFILE ,NAME IT SPARTAN 11
THEN TRY THE GAME ON EASY THEN WHEN U PLAY GET HIT BUY A PLASMARIFLE AND
REMEMBER HOW MUCH DAMAGE WAS DELT BY 1 HIT BY THE PLASMA RIFLE THEN
CHANGE THE DIFICULTY DO THE SAME THING ON ANY OTHER DIFFICULTY AND I
WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME THANK U
All I can "remember" right now is how much "damage" this message did to my eyes. Is there a cheat code to alleviate that too?
areyou getting any more games
Sure I am. That Xbox isn't just for Halo, you know.
i kinda got really bored an i was lookin ova the mailbox section of HBO an i thought of a slogan you guys could use 4 it: "HBO Mailbox: where your opinion matters, or at lest we say that."
I don't recall ever saying that.
Hey guys, wierd random fact, a medium drink at Mcdonalds costs $1.17 with 6% tax in Michigan might be different where you live
Oh yeah? Well, the other day when I visited the forum, I saw that there were 117 new messages. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go post some news and email certain major television networks.
Its only been nearly a yaer since your expected release of Halo 2 ive never seen a game delayed this much before ever. I hate to think your making these delays to make the game better based on what you think it should be like instead of basing decisions on fans. Dont you think your not only frustrating and pissing off alot of people because you cant release one game on time I just hope for your sake there are no more delays this year. And I hope that your delays and lies are worth it and the game better turn out damn perfect for your sake because this is getting very ridiculous. Have a nice day.
I hope you never become interested in Duke Nukem Forever. I don't think you'd survive.
I am a huge fan of the sopranos, but my enthusiasm is waning in light of last years weak shows,ie. not following up on all the cliff hangers,etc. and then after last nights utterlydisappointing opener.Having waited so long for the return, and after all the hoopla advertising, the show was a miserable flop. If the show doesn't improve drastically soon, I will reserve my enthusiam for the Shield. THATS MY OPINION AND THAT OF THE THREE OTHER COUPLES IN OUR GROUP THAT HAVE BEEN AVID VIEWERS. Thanks
Normally, I'd make some sarcastic comment here about how we're Halo.Bungie.Org, not Home Box Office. But he's not actually off-topic; Halo 2 is going to have a lot of sopranos in it. The new Flying Groin Smash melee combo must be seen to be believed.
I followed all the advice from these freaks and I still have no Yellow Banshee. Please show me or tell me in true real SIMPLE directions on where to find all the different colored Banshees.
Since there's been so much confusion over so many years over this point, I may as well come clean. Yes, there is a yellow banshee. There is also a green banshee and a red banshee, available at different parts of the game (but no others).
