The Red Hot Halo: Scoring a Copy of "2"

At least he isn't begging for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Yet.

[Looking around the house. Only girls here. Ahhhhhh!]

Oh, um, sorry. Hope you survived your foray into the 4th circle. May your return journey be relatively unobscured!

Speaking as a father with three of my own, he sounds like a great kid, well aware of what he needs to do to get what he wants. I'm impressed by his behavior (especially at raising the money himself and getting someone else to pick the game up for him). I predict a fine future for him.

Actually, given the content of Grand Theft Auto, that would probably be forbidden to him.

I don't know how to break it to you Gerard, but it continues into their 20's. My middle son is a navy diver, 24 years old, and he is still plotting and coniving to get the latest games.

I just got mine, but I haven't actually played it yet. I know that when I do, I won't be seen again for quite a while.

I just fired mine up and managed to get through a few checkpoints before being killed by an elite that snuck up behind me - I really suck at these games, but the tech is so neat that I have to try them out at least. I'm 62, surf,and flew gliders, but the hand and eye coordination of the real gameplayers is amazing and I don't have it. I went through the first Halo accompanied by my 17 year old nephew who is hot, but my wife and I are going to have to do this on on our own. Wish us luck!
