You Say Goodbye, I Say Halo

Tomorrow night marks the end of the line for the original Xbox Live, and we're sending it off in proper Giant Bomb fashion.

As Microsoft announced back in February, online support for the original Xbox and its associated games will be coming to an end soon--April 14th, to be exact--and, much like we did for The Matrix Online, we'll be live streaming the final minutes of the service. The focus will definitely be squarely on Halo 2--with members of the Waypoint team at 343 Industries potentially making some online guest appearances and beating our asses mercilessly--though we might try and sneak in a little Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge or MechAssault while we're at it.

So tune in tomorrow night, April 14th, at 10PM PDT for our live two-hour broadcast of these bittersweet end of times! Until then, enjoy this Warthog jump video, which remains my favorite Halo video ever. 
  

 
 

 
UPDATE: We've done some preliminary testing, and have created a shortlist of additional Xbox Live games we may spend some time with. If you've got an Xbox and want to join in on the fun, be sure and have these games at the ready!
