3.74 - The One with the cheating Agent Zero

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best at Halo 3...that was proven last night when Justus and I played on XBox Live. But I won't go as far as cheating...unlike NBA superstar Gilbert Arenas, who graces the cover of NBA Live 08.

When you play on XBox Live, it records your scores and your achievements displays them on a website for all to see. Arenas wrote on his blog once that he plays Halo on XBox live and so some people looked him up to see how he was doing. What they found on his profile page was him placing first or second in most of his games. The problem was that in his games, he would place first with no kills and the games would only last for a couple minutes. He joins up with a friend and has his other account quit out so he gets 1st place every time. Check out his profile.

When asked about this by Dan Steinburg from the Washington Post, Arenas replied,

"I'm cheating?" he said. "How am I cheating?"

"Gilbert," I asked, approximately," are you creating dummy games with two fake friends and using the wins to rack up experience points?"

"Yeah," he said, laughing. "Yeah."

uhh huh...way to're a great role model Agent Zero
