lol talk about fanboy's with to much time on their hands. Although the part about corpse humping gave me one of the best laughs I've had in awhile. I love my 360 but I would NEVER want Microsoft or any other company to buy up and absorb their competitors. So many people are all about their fantasies of having their console manufacturer of choice dominate and destroy the others, but competition is a good thing! If it was just MS, Nintendo, Sony, etc.. left as the only console maker, I guarantee quality would fall very quickly and prices would soar higher then most of us could manage.
As far as halo goes, I've just never really been into it. I played 1 and 2 and I guess it's just not my thing. I definitely enjoy single player games much more then multiplayer and the halo series just didn't impress me as much in that aspect. My favorite games are usually ones where the development time was focused solely on the single player campaign. That's just me though and I understand many people are all about multiplayer. Obviously there are tons of people who love their Halo, I'd just like to see more games like BioShock is all.
