Download | Shownotes

It’s the final farewell to Halo 2. A look back at the game that brought us all together in the first place. With JVB, CapnKrunk, Dialpex, and George from Aeropause.com. This is a long show at over 1:30, but rightly so as it’s the end of an era. Song at the end is from our friends at Sarcastic Gamer. Enjoy it!

    Nah, your voice wasn’t too loud….it just made us hear you better….and that’s good, b/c I hate it when I miss a millisecond of Podtac.

    This community is what really made Halo 2 a phenomenon for me. I would spend days listening to this while playing Matchmaking with friends or occasionally while eating dinner with my friends. Heck, coming back from some college football games when the traffic was horrendous, we would plug in some headphones and wait until they would let us all out of the parking lot.

    I now sit at a computer at school after I got some free time after I finished my assignment before anyone else did paying my respects to the game that changed the way that FPSs were played online. While limited in some aspects of online multiplayer, it set up a good example for what a matchmaking system was supposed to be. (i.e. No individual party leaders and “ready” buttons for matchmaking.)

    You guys made this game real for me. Everything from JVB’s Laugh to Foomo’s subtle but hilarious humor was like a friends list full of amicable people all in the same party. Podtacular, I thank you. Bungie, I thank you for the community that you created (on purpose or not).
