Because you just joined on the greatest day ever, maybe I can find some legal way to help you out.

Only if you have facebook though.

If not, it's pretty much cloverfield for you 3>

If you can afford a PC, then you can afford to buy a legit copy from Amazon for $15.

There are so many holes in this argument, but I think you already know them so I'm not going to bother to repeat them.

Let's do a little ACT prep.

If Indian kid A receives hand-me-down Computer X for a Christmas present, how many games can he buy?

A) 5
B) 3
C) 7
D) Not enough information

There is insufficient evidence in the question to indicate Indian kid A's income or resources, only that he has a computer. Therefore it is impossible to tell how much he has outside of that, meaning any answer to the question is a biased estimate; invalid by any other word. The correct answer is D.

The answer is E) He has someone close to him that's handing off a computer that can handle a 7 or so year old game well enough that he can play it; that this computer is still fully functional with the capability to play games, yet being passed off, his sources can buy him a 10 dollar game.

Basically no matter how you swing it the only way to come up with 'e' is by applying our own cultural archetypes and presumptions to the scenario, rendering any derived answer incorrect. What holds true in our plush 1st world lives might not be the case elsewhere in the globe.

Indian kids don't have lives.

It's

1. Be born.

2. Study hard in school

3. Arranged marriage at 21

4. Become a doctor

5. Die of a heart attack.

A G4WL key from that era can be purchased for as little as a dollar. So you purchase Shadowrun or Gears of War PC and away you go.

Anyone can save up a dollar, especially if they have a computer powerful enough to run this shoddy port of a game. This hypothetical computer probably has a PCI Express GPU as well, considering the age it is unlikely an onboard GPU would provide an acceptable frame-rate. The electricity and internet to run said computer and connect it to other players would cost more. The monitor and keyboard would cost more, the mouse would probably cost more.

But not everyone has the ability to spend it online.

Never specified; OP has never played H2Vista, only the Xbox release.

I'm not even sure what rectal crevice you're pulling this from.

Difference being electricity and internet are all but essentials pretty much anywhere in the world that are already going to be paid for.

Mice run about 10$. Keyboards about the same, if not less, and the old CRT monitors can be found for literal pennies.

And that's assuming the computer didn't come with those in the first place, which I find incredibly unlikely if we're operating under the 'hand me down' scenario.

Your move.

You didn't provide one logical counter-point. All you did was insult me. A better man can admit when he has lost the conversation, bringing forth nothing of value. Accepting that yes he was wrong, but also realizing that he has the opportunity to learn from it. If you had actually made any valid points I would respectfully agree upon reconsidering my position, but that is not to be see here nor there. In the actual body of this conversation:

"I know i have no right to ask for this from you people, but i was wondering if somebody could get me a halo 2 key so i can play online, ive never played halo 2 back when it was on the original xbox, but now i have a pc, and have been wanting to play, so if somebody could please send me a key, id be forever grateful."

He is online, he plainly states as much. He communicates in English, he states in the OP that he wants to play it online, he is posting on an online forum, he could not activate it without being online, even the phone prompt is preceded by an internet prompt to activate. Perhaps you should actually read and pay attention to the context of this conversation before adding nothing of value to it and going off on some tangent that is completely related to the question at hand. He said he wants to play online, meanwhile you are talking about some kid form India who has a computer powerful enough to play Halo 2 yet not enough resources to save up a dollar. You are not making any valid points nor are you helping anyone. You may think you are, but that only illustrates one of the internet current issues: the blind leading the blind. Your Indian Straw Man argument has no bearing on this thread, in fact its a bit insulting that you think some people are so lacking in ability that they cannot raise a single dollar. Someone who needs a dollar is not concerned about playing Halo 2 on the PC, they are concerned about where their next meal is coming from.


The question has been answered by a few of us here, procure your game serial legally. Either by Amazon or elsewhere for even cheaper.


And surely you are now filled with enough vigor to provide ample entertainment for our fellow internet denizens.

But first take please take note, you do not need to make a move because I will not debase myself further, slinking ever closer to your level; you ever pointless pedestrian of the internet. I prefer to help people with relevant information instead of confusing them as you seem so set upon. Still, you must have your say then and you shall, after-all, I have just had a terrible vision: I predict the continued ramblings of another in 3....2....1....

I guess if you want it free so badly, do bing rewards or something. That way you're purchasing it with an amazon gift card. It would probably take two months or less to get the points to get $10.
