Halo 2 Will Not Die

Recently Microsoft shutdown their Xbox live service to Halo 2 users, but not without a fight from the hardcore fans. Originally posted in the Halo 2 forums, it’s dedication from gamers like this that brings a tear to your eye, and also reaffirms how great a game Halo 2 is.

Throughout the past week, a small group of dedicated Halo 2 players kept their Xbox’s on so that they could enjoy the game for a while longer. (As long as we don’t turn off our Xbox’s, or lose connection, we can stay online. Our Xbox’s have been on for nearly 14 days straight!) Each day the amount of people decreased, at a rapid rate.

A lot of us became really good friends, and it’s almost like we’re family now.
For a while, we had ‘T0 Be Continued’ Live streaming all of our games, until her Xbox regrettably froze while playing custom games. Then, ‘Mr7ankjump’ did a live stream, but he lagged out only 4 hours later.

Long live the Halo 2 community, and I wish these fans the best of luck!
