D1027 T1716 Y2008Stupid Fun

After a long hiatus, resident machinima auteur TTL Hoovaloov is back with a piece that he calls the “Stupid Fun ‘Tage”. You may remember this gamer – whose friends call him “Hoov” – from such previous works as Beta Carotage or Lagtacular. His most recent offering is a parade of evidence of the replayability of Halo 3 via Xbox Live.

This montage could have just as easily been called the “Splatter ‘Tage” or the “Oh My God ‘Tage” or the “Did You See That? ‘Tage”. This is why we fight. Nothing can prepare a Halo National for what might come next when two teams clash on the digital battlefield.

Is it any mystery that Warthog Pilots have more fun? Snipers have their enigma and their rare skill. Attackers have their collection of stolen flags. Defenders fight for the glory [and the medals] that come from a shutout.

The crazy cowboys from the motorpool, however, see all of the very best moments that the Halo 3 physics engine affords a gamer. And, they see it from the driver’s seat. Even within the confines of an expressed combat specialty [Hoovaloov is a Gunslinger of the Roadkill Squadron], there are unexpected moments that can inspire shock and awe in even the most jaded veteran.

DISCLAIMER: “OPERATION SWEET JUMPS” is a trademark of this gamerblogger. I invented that. Well, I didn’t invent the Warthog; nor did I invent a fondness for seeing it catch some air. However, I did coin the phrase to describe the practice of going off-mission on a joyride when a 20 point lead has been accrued in Team Slayer. All rights reserved!

    Thanks everyone! I’m really glad you all are enjoying it. This video is just as much a thank you as it is for fun. Without our Gunslinger teamwork and sense of humor, I don’t think many of these clips would exist. Thanks again for being the best.

    Nice work Hoov! I love the random splatters where a grenade blasts you into someone. Those always amuse me.

    I feel as though O7AH was made to look the fool in this montage Hoov. Everytime we made an appearance, you betrayed us…or I jumped out of the lift while the hog was in mid air, nevertheless, you’ll hear from my liar for deframation of character.
