D0923 T1101 Y2010Fight = Finished

Three years ago, the gates of Halo 3 swung wide to admit an anxiously waiting public to finisht the fight. Our Hero had been left hanging off of a cliff. Our multiplayer battlegrounds were in desperate need of an upgrade. Our respective warring societies were perched on starting blocks, waiting for the crack of the pistol to mark the arrival of the street date.

Three years later, we have run that race all over again. Reach has fallen, and it is an upgrade of the same magnitude. When the TTL Gunslingers migrate to a new title, we rarely look back. The next evolution is always a welcome milestone in our campaign as gamers. However, on this – the third birthday of Halo 3 – attention must be paid.

Would you cast a reminiscant glance over your shoulder with us? Would you experience the odyssey of virtual combat that was Halo 3 on Xbox Live one final time? Your tour guides will be two of the most stalwart Captains of the official Halo Clan of Tied the Leader. TTL L Askan was and is our first line of offense. TTL Tortacular was and is our last line of defense. Together, they encompass two vastly contrasting experiences that have illustrated the past three years of our life as a team.

As always, these offerings are best viewed in a higher resolution. Hats off to TTL Hoovaloov, the architect of this victory lap. The victory belongs to all of us – to the players and the makers. Halo 3 was an experience for those that love it. Good games were had. Virtual armies were raised all across the Halo Nation – ones that still fight in Halo: Reach. We Gunslingers will be forever grateful for the impact that Halo 3 had on our little social experiment. If Halo 2 was our cradle, Halo 3 was our academy.

The king is dead.

Long live the king.

    Ahh, I’ll never forget you, Halo 3. You ended my trilogy of a crush not with a bang, but a whimper.

    I just finished the first Halo again, and now I’m replaying Halo 2. Soon I’ll replay Halo 3.

    It’s hard to believe that it’s over.

    H3 was a game changer. perhaps the single most memorable game i have played, will play… a piece of art/history.

    This video brought back great memories, great work… done the game justice.
