Halo 3 Is Loose in My House

September 26, 2007 7:50 AM

At 7:32 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time last night I officially became a Halo 3 widow.

That’s when my significant other (code for husband, shhh…) attempted to defeat aliens in the covenant from the flood or something. Or maybe save the human race from Voldemort?

But don’t cry for me, Argentina. That means I’ve had plenty of time to catch up on my Lolly Winston book and a 2003 episode of “The Inspector Lynley Mysteries.” (No, I can’t tell you on this blog why I am watching it. But if you e-mail, I just might…)

In the meantime, for all you alien shooter fans, here’s a one-minute news clip from Gametrailers.com that features an interview with the game’s creators.

And if you want to really geek yourself out over the Halo 3 launch, here’s the official trailer, which has already racked up more than 1.5 million views in its first 24 hours on YouTube.

Halo 2 rang up more than $125 million in sales in its first 24 hours, and the first two games have sold a combined 15 million copies.
