My cousin Mark, who enjoys the Halo series very much, sent me the following video, which he said captured his feelings about Halo 3 very well.
I’m not a gamer much beyond Tetris and desperately trying to find a Wii (and then finding it at the one point I couldn’t afford it) for the last few months, but I thought this review by a Brit for an Aussie magazine was hysterical:
Now every time someone says the words “Easy Street” I’m going to picture a little sign below it that says “We’ve got hookers!”
On a separate but related note, I was listening to one of my BBC podcasts and I heard a member of Parliament (a Conservative who was chairing some committee related to finance) describe the missing data fiasco I wrote about the other day as “a major cock-up.”
It still sounded more dignified than anything anyone in Congress has said in some time.
