Do You Remember Halos grass on the pc?? It was that horrible bland texture found in many next gen games called "green sand"
Let me refresh your memory:

But on the the XBOX with it's advanced Bump Mapping, grass has been transformed into these amazing strands that look simply amazing! These pics dont even begin to do it justice but look at the difference bump mapping can make!

LOL, Charles...I know how you feel. Minutes seem like hours and hours feel like days! I am going to camp all night...for 10 hours to be exact while I am going to freeze my ass off outside...think about how those final 10 hours are going to be like! Deeeyaaaaamnnn!!!
