Question Halo 1 & 2 summery before I start?

Can somebody sum up the events of Halo 1 and 2 for me before I start 3 (or point me to a site that has one posted)?

I can't afford to get CE yet and 2 is only available online and it's not easy for me to order online. My brother has 1 & 2 but lives out of state so I can't borrow them before I start 3

Can anybody refresh my memory on what happened?

I read the sections and they are accurate and comprehensive of the events of the two games. Also spoiler free concerning Halo 3, outside the actual events of the previous games.

If you want to take a few hours away from your time and watch videos on the story so far, youtube has countless ones.

Also Bungie.org has a lot of in depth stuff for Halo fans.

Thank you for the links! I'll read them tonight and and start the game tomorrow

Emfulz, thanks for the link too, but yeah, it would really be hours upon hours upon hours. I'm on a 24k connection speed (download speed is about 2.5k/sec). About a 2-3 minute long video takes about 30-45 minutes to load for me -_- I never visit the site unless it's for a specific movie trailer I can't wait to see.

I'll try and check out the bungie site though and see if I can load that up and look too!

Thank you both! Can't wait to finally play the story on 3 and see how it all ends! Hopefully I can get copies of the other 2 one of these days still too. They sure were fun to go through.

You're aware of Halo 4 right? I haven't played that one but from what I understand it does follow Halo 3 and the Master Chief.

Yep! I remember getting excited over it each time I would see a preview on tv for it LoL I heard GotY edition comes out next year and I'm holding out for that and will pick it up after it drops down to $20-25 or so probably.... not that GotY matters for me probably. Most of those extras seem to be for multiplayer and I kind of miss out on all of that.

I thought it wasn't tied in to the other 3 games at all though, other than Master Chief. Maybe 3 won't end the story after all I guess... I'll find out next year sometime LoL

I know that the Chief and Cortana are in the game (Halo 4) but that's about all I know. There are new enemies etc. no idea if anything else returns from the previous games though.

I guess we'll see eventually. The previews made it out like it wasn't tied to the other games. I hope it has a good ending to tie some things off for me though. I won't be getting the next gen system so 4 will be as far as I get to go in the series.

Halo 4 continues the story from Halo 3.

Thanks McGoogles, I'll avoid info on 4 then until I finish 3 and get my own copy of 4 to run through.

Thanks again for the info too! I read through those wikipedia links and the summeries were helpful. Bits of the plot did sound very familiar, especially for the 2nd one. I don't remember much of it still but it did help refresh my memory enough to remember kind of how they ended.

I looked at the bungie site too and that timeline was interesting. I have never read any of the books or played through any of the other games so it was interesting go through, thanks!
