When Microsoft finally discontinued Xbox Live support for Halo 2 on April 15, it was the end of an era. Gamers from around the world who spent inordinate amounts of time fragging each other in Halo 2's many levels were forced to say goodbye.

However, as most left for newer alternatives, some refused to let go just yet.

"Throughout the past week, a small group of dedicated Halo 2 players kept their Xbox's on so that they could enjoy the game for a while longer," Bungie Community member "Joe Campbell" wrote in a forum. He said even though Microsoft has turned off support for Halo 2, the players have been able to keep playing the game because they haven't turned their consoles off and maintained a constant connection to Xbox Live since April 15.

"As long as we don't turn off our Xbox's, or lose connection, we can stay online," Campbell wrote. "Our Xboxes have been on for nearly 12 days straight."

Staying online for 12 days has been difficult. The original group was much larger, but due to dropped Web connections and consoles overheating because of constant use, gamers have been dropping out "at a rapid rate." As of this writing, there are 14 gamers currently playing Halo 2 even after support has been discontinued.

The gamers who are left say they plan to keep Halo 2 for as long as possible. Campbell said he and his fellow Halo 2 gamers "will keep playing until we are all forcibly removed."

To prove that the players are actually still able to access Halo 2 and take on each other online, some have been live streaming the bouts between players. One gamer, "Z0mbie," has more than three hours of footage showing the last remaining people playing the game over Xbox Live.

There's no telling how much longer the remaining 14 gamers will be able to hold out until they are forced to bid adieu. But they expect the end to come by way of "Microsoft, Bungie, our Xbox's overheating, or just lagging out."

But don't think that they're doing this for accolades or prizes. According to Campbell, he and the rest of the gamers continue to play Bungie's classic "not for competition, not for a prize, but for the love, and memory of Halo 2."

In 2007 SystemSoft developed a military strategy game Moe Moe Niji Taisen to capitalize on the massive popularity of the moe girl archetype. (Overly Cute adorable female characters designed to trigger feelings of intense protection and affection for those that fall for them.)

The newest version of the game will be done by the same team known for the underrated (Criminally so) Dai Senryaku strategy game. It is being developed for the Xbox 360 and will be known as Moe Moe Niji Taisen Deluxe Plus and will feature characters from the various warring Axis/Allies factions in America, Russia, Great Britain, Japan, Italy and Germany.

Of course the more disturbing part is that the characters will be personfied as cute tanks and military weapons. Then again all depends on the person...

NAMCO Bandai Games America has confirmed that they have licensed the exclusive North American rights to publish videogames for the Dragon Ball franchise from 2010 to 2014. While Atari currently holds the agreement with FUNimation for the Dragon Ball game rights, the agreement ends this year. FUNimation Entertainment has made attempts to terminate Atari's license in October of 2007, but Atari negotiated the continuation of the license in December of that year.

The games are based on Akira Toriyama's fighting action manga and Toei Animation's anime adapatation of that manga. NAMCO Bandai Games America negotiated with Toei and FUNimation for the new agreement. The new agreement not set to officially start until 2009, will be preceeded by the publisher releasing 3 Dragon Ball games for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS.

The games are:

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 consoles,
Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo for the Nintendo Wii console
Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans for the Nintendo DS system
