This is a pretty good FAQ about Halo 2. It does seem to treat things that arn't confermed yet as absolutely true, but maybe it's just that I haven't seen the confirmations :-)

this is a thread about what's happening in the beta, but I'm not so sure about the accuracy of this either. Notice for instance that the pistol isn't mentioned, while it is in the beta.

On 11 september Stupidity, trampmaister and I are going to a exposition with halo 2! combine this with the comment that frankie made in the last weekly update, and we might get to see one of the latest builds of halo 2.

/me is
big time happy
