First up, Halo 3. Originally launched in 2007, it was the first installment from the Halo series to make it to the fairly new Xbox 360 (which originally came out in ‘05). The game featured the aspects that players had grown to love but with the new hardware and Xbox LIVE becoming easier to jump into on the new console, this game was a must have from the start. It marked the end of Master Chief’s (initial) trilogy, but also the start of Halo games being known for pushing graphics, gameplay and online firefights to the limit.

Halo 3 is Free for Gold Members Right NowNick Puleo

Just because the game was released in 2007 doesn't discount the quality of the title - Halo 3 still holds up quite well and is a great co-op experience. Microsoft's free games might not compete in terms of timing with Sony's, but free is free, and for those late adopters of the Xbox 360 they may have missed this one. Normally I'd link to the review of the game here, but it actually pre-dates the inception of this site by a few months!

Comparing Games with Gold with Playstation Plus is like comparing the latest Ferrari with the old Ford Mondeo I had to scrap.  One provides triple A titles from the previous year or so, the other provides games that are old enough to have entered the Hall of Fame.

Sometimes we find co-op in the most unexpected ways.  Take the gaming clan Tied the Leader.  A predominately versus clan, the folks cooked up a crazy idea - lets see how many medals we can get in one shot of the Spartan Laser in Halo 3.

More news coming for co-op fans straight out of Comic-con.  This time it's regarding some upcoming additions to the lofty Halo franchise.  First up is Halo Waypoint.  Described as the "a new destination for "Halo" fans on Xbox LIVE", it sounds like a channel devoted to Halo news, trailers, screenshots, and the like.  A career system with ranking based on both in and out of game goals should keep Halo fans busy.

See this screenshot? This is one of the more artistic captured moments from my gallery; it was taken near the beginning of "The Ark" on Halo 3. I was playing the campaign in co-op, and this bad-to-the-bone ODST Marine was playing it smart while we were being slaughtered mercilessly by Grunts.

This past week, our corner of the world (Southwest Missouri, USA) was hit by a pretty nasty ice/snow combo.  Our school was closed, which meant that my whole family was "stuck" at home for four straight days.  Don't you feel bad for me?  As you can imagine, there was a lot of video gaming going on.  The first priority was finishing off the campaign in Gears of War 2.  However, we did that on the first day (and it was awesome, for sure).  So, digging through the game drawer, we came upon another game we had only half-finished: Halo 3.  And so, taking on the role of "Master Halo and the Alien Guy", as named by my seven year old, we embarked on the co-op quest. You might be wondering how any self respecting gamer hasn't finished the fight by now.  Well, let me explain.  First of all, I'm not sure how respectable I am as a gamer anyway.  Second, anytime we played Halo 3 before, I got weird motion sickness and splitting headaches after playing for about half an hour.  For some reason, the game didn't affect me as much this time around.  Maybe I'm just getting used to shooters, what with all my time spent in Left 4 Dead and Gears 2.  Headaches or not, Halo 3 was the answer for keeping the snow days from becoming boring.
