FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Halo 3 Beta Chaos

Posted on Wednesday, May 16 @ 20:31:58 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Validation problems, Crackdown issues, server overloads, and "Cheneymania" are just a few of the issues that made the Halo 3 beta launch go about as smoothly as a Flood infection.

First, the people who bought Crackdown in order to qualify for the beta (also it's a decent game) found themselves disqualified. The issue is being resolved.

Then a collective giggle at the Bungie badge (not an Achievement as some have incorrectly stated) called "Cheneymania", awarded for getting 10 shotgun kills in a row with no deaths. Not in the face!

Acting fast to stay apolitical, Bungie quickly renamed it twice over the weekend, and the badge is currently called "Open Season". Apparently the last thing Bungie wanted was trouble with the Secret Service, or possibly an armed and angry Dick Cheney.

And while Bungie.net has managed to stay (mostly) up during the crush, not everyone else has. Major Nelson, Microsoft's Xbox Live Tzar and official blogger isn't so lucky. His server has been crushed like a bug and now boasts a "Temporarily Unavailable Due to High Load" badge. Ouch, maybe he should try a Linux server.
