So with Halo 4 almost upon us, this will be the thread. Also, some videos and Forward Unto Dawn.

My god was Forward Unto Dawn epic, makes me sad that it is over.

On another note, there was a web series similar called Halo: Helljumpers, it and after two or so episodes, don't know why.

Nope. However, I do see how someone could be disappointed with this game. There's little issues this game has that causes it to be an annoyance at times, but the game at its core is extremely fun.

A little disappointed. Slight annoyances, such as showing me armor that I can unlock 10 ranks from where I am currently, and not when I unlock it. Having to unlock emblems. Loadouts, and random weapon spawns. That and the annoying lighting. I am also diss appointed by the fact that custom games options have been severely limited, and the file browser system is still down.

I don't know about you guys, but I was hoping for a few more easter eggs like halo 3. This is a really fun game and all, but I'll probably end up getting black ops II because of the way the guns shoot. I am extremely annoyed on how your sights open up every time you shoot. Maybe I'm stuck in Halo 3 world, but I'm also sad that there is no bubble shield :(. Also, the campaign was satisfying but lacks the in depth acting and story I wanted. I would replay Halo 3 missions over and over because they were soo fun and how you could explore and find many little stories of individual characters not related to the main storyline. Reach and Halo 4 weren't disappointments, but lack that touch of creative bungie I love.

That's only on the close range guns that you automatically zoom out, the Assault Rifle, Storm Rifle, and Suppressor. The secondary pistols and I think guns like the scattershot and shotgun, but that's it.

Black Ops 2 is meh, graphics suck, guns aren't too much different than previous cods, and snipers kind of suck. Knifing is also almost impossible even if you charge right at them, you end up knifing beside them (it's glitchy).

I will admit that the campaign isn't as good as Halo 3, I replayed Halo 3's campaign so many times. I found that I guess it wasn't just like good old Halo 2 and 3. It felt as like it was a new storyline instead of a continuum. I found it a bit too long and some of the missions were hard even on easy.

I still think it's tons better then the cod storyline (besides cod4 that was epic) and the multiplayer is better than previous Halo's. But it feels like they took a say for instance ego11, and remilled it and changed some internals, so on the inside and outside it is different but still has those touches reminiscent of the other Ego 11 or in this case, Halo 3.

So far, this games multiplayer is horrible. Maps are shit, instant respawn is dumb as fuck.

So far for me

Blops 2 > H4


Once they patch lag comp in blops, it'll be far better then h4, and this is coming from a long time halo player. 10k games in h3 and 5 50s.

Ha instant respawn, you're saying is dumb, cod has instant respawn as well. Yes I know you can see the killcam but you can "instant respwan". And I think the maps are awesome.

And instant respawn works so much better in COD because you don't have a laser beam DMR and the spawns aren't as rubbish. In previous halos, dying was actually a punishment, you lost any powerweapons you were holding and stood a chance at loosing map control. Now it's woops I died, time to respawn and clean up the guy who just shit on me and get my powerweapon back without a fight.

Seriously, just because it works well in cod doesn't mean it will in Halo.

The maps are absolute rubbish, poor lines of sight, cluttered as hell, and boxes placed randomly around the maps (I'm only talking about the 4 4v4 maps here). By far the worst launch maps in any halo.

I really like the spartan ops story, but the gameplay is aweful. It's an annoying amount of waves of enemies. Two waves of Covenant would be enough, there is no reason to have to fight 4 waves of elites and hunters, only to fight 3 more waves of Promethians. Just on a side note, the in mission voice acting of Miller, and Roland, ect. Is SERIOUSLY lacking. It is piss poor and choppy.

They tried to cater too much to CoD fans, children, and noobs. Instead of staying true to its roots of a game that took an immense amount of skill compared to CoD by adding instant respawns, ordinance drops, random weapon spawns, and killcam.

The spawns are good in Halo 4. The spawns in cod sometimes suck. And in blops 2 guess what you get your power weapon back even if you died ha!


Errr no, black ops you just respawn. There are no power weapons in COD.


Spawns are absolute garbage in H4. This is mostly due to horrible map design.

Yes in blops 1 you did, but in blops 2 you get to respawn with your power weapon back. The power weapons are the death machine and the grenade launcher thingy. Spawns seem fine for me in Halo 4.

I think you don't understand the difference between a powerweapon and killstreak reward.

Power weapon - comes on the map at a set time and fair game for everyone on the map. Positioning and killing determines who gets it. Example, rockets on the Pit back in H3.

Killstreak Reward - like it sounds, a reward for killing X number of enemy in a row without dying.

The spawns are good in Halo 4. The spawns in cod sometimes suck. And in blops 2 guess what you get your power weapon back even if you died ha!


Errr no, black ops you just respawn. There are no power weapons in COD.


Spawns are absolute garbage in H4. This is mostly due to horrible map design.


Yes in blops 1 you did, but in blops 2 you get to respawn with your power weapon back. The power weapons are the death machine and the grenade launcher thingy. Spawns seem fine for me in Halo 4.



I think you don't understand the difference between a powerweapon and killstreak reward.

Power weapon - comes on the map at a set time and fair game for everyone on the map. Positioning and killing determines who gets it. Example, rockets on the Pit back in H3.

Killstreak Reward - like it sounds, a reward for killing X number of enemy in a row without dying.

I like some but not all of the new guns.
for example:
Railgun = balanced yet awesome and fun
saw = not overpowered but still useful

sticky detonator = fucking annoying and good for skill lacking noobs. the grenade launcher from reach was much more fun if you actually knew how to use it
scatter-shot = a shotgun with no power but it shoots faster Posted Image... why just why?
binary sniper = takes the skill out of sniping

I see no problems in halo lol

There are problems. Tiny problems that make huge issues. I'll name a few of them.
File share needs to be fixed so we can see forge maps in matchmaking (I like the map, but I'm tired of Haven). I would love to see an MLG playlist with Lockout in it (I loved this map in Halo 2, I tried it in Halo 4 and I feel it could work).
There needs to be more custom game options.
Forge has some nice new features but it needs serious fixing.
As for gameplay besides bitching about how guns aren't balanced I'll add something new: Take out auto pickup of flag/ball, descoping needs to replace flinch, despawning of weapons is too quick, I shouldn't have people spawn behind me after I kill them (I'm fine with instant respawn, but the locations where people spawn is ridiculous)

I can name other problems in the game. Don't get me wrong, I like this game alot(serious potential, I feel), but it has its flaws. I'll continue to play for enjoyment (like we all should since it's a game), and wait for the title update (which 343 announced btw).

Ok. It might have minor flaws but this 343's first time with halo. I think they did pretty good with the game.

Nope. They have expirience. Multiple members of 343i are original members of Bungie. Furthermore, they took over Reach, and added two map packs, and a title update. Not to mention the two years they spent on H4, and their refusal to open beta test to fix the issues we are having now.

While there are members of Bungie in 343, there really isn't a lot of them. It pretty much is a new company.

They still have members from Bungie, and they took input from Bungie. (I don't know if they used it) They also have members from other companies that have worked on major franchises.

Their mulitplayer lead is a guy who was part of a company that helped devlop Mass Effect (NOT LEAD DEV) and nintendo games.


That should say right there how much experience they've got with multiplayer.

Hopefully Andy Dudynsky (Bravo from MLG) can help fix the game through the next title update. He was just hired this week.

Bravo isn't going to get anywhere. I've watched him for the last few months, all he's been doing is licking 343i balls and viewing halo 4 through rose tinted glasses. Nothing is going to change.
