Halo 2 Shenanigans

I’ve posted before about the problem of cheaters on Xbox Live, particularly in Halo 2 since that’s the only game I play online.

Now, a lighter story to balance things out.

Some of the guys I game with occasionally decide to mess with people online. Thankfully, they do it in a hilarious (instead of annoying/cheating) fashion. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Get 7 people in a party.
2. Everyone change their armor color to pink, and their icon to the bright red lips.
3. Join a matchmade 8 player game, ensuring that one random poor sap will get stuck with the 7 of you.
4. Play the Benny Hill theme song over the headset so everyone can hear it.
5. Run around crazily in the game making 3 Stooges-esque noises, or in rare cases pulling off coordinated dance numbers.
6. At some point actually play the game.
7. Sit back and enjoy the stunned comments from player #8.

  1. YES!

    ::plays the Benny Hill theme::

  2. we should’ve tested what happens when a girl talks on the headset. i could’ve said some pretty colorful things. 🙂

  3. And soon after posting that, the Benny Hill theme erupted from my boss’ office. No idea why, but it was perfect timing.

  4. maybe your boss is secretly playing halo in there, read your post, and thought it was a great idea.

  5. OMG!!! After I D/L the theme I could just close my eyes and see a troop of pink armored Halo 2 players running around in circles, dancing to the music.

  6. I want in the next time!!!!!!
