A suggested improvement for Halo 3


My son Joshua, like millions of other people spent as much of yesterday as possible playing the just-released Halo 3. That means that the television room is full of war sounds, grunts, shouts, cries, etc...

I'm fine with this, because I know that Joshua is enjoying the game. But, is it too much to ask for the fine folks at Bungie (makers of Halo) to add one change. Could one of the main characters talk like Grandpa Simpson?

Now, I don't mean the actual words Grandpa says, though some of them would work, like:

"I've coughed up scarier stuff than that
"

"Oh no, We're all doomed!"

"Kill it! Kill it!"

I just mean how he talks. This would provide a nice diversion for those of us who have to listen to Halo. Grandpa Simpson saying things like:

"Kill me or release me, parasite. But do not waste my time with talk!"

"Of all the objects that our Lords left behind, there are none so worthless as these Oracles! They know nothing of the Great Journey!"

"You are the Arbiter, the will of the Prophets. But these are my Elites, their lives matter to me - yours does not. "

"They're going to try and take our MAC guns offline. Give the Covenant a straight shot at Earth. Master Chief, defend this station! "


Just a thought.

That kill it, kill it quote is one of my favorites.

Grampa is looking at Homer in the hospital, in a coma, and says something to the effect of: "ahh... my beautiful baby..."

Then Homer grunts and drools in his coma, and Grampa grabs a chair and yells: "Kill it! Kill it!"

Comedy gold.
