Hello, I have decided on finally making a Halo general for because this belongs in history as one of the greatest series of FPS games in the history of gaming.
Discuss Halo matters.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Halo 4 finally comes out in 2 days!
Everyone ready-up your bodies, because Xbox Live will receive a large fluctuation of connections for the next 4 months!

The sad part is…

I don’t have an Xbox 360.

Many others will beg to differ with that first statement, but I won’t.

Remember, I said “one of the greatest”, which irl is a shared opinion by many. That’s their problem if they can’t bear another group of people’s opinion at all. I’m neutral about Halo 4, if you should know. imho, I think it’s a great game, but not very in my style of gaming.

Halo 4 confirmed savior of gaming.

Election Day made me forget about this. Why.

Halo has to be my favorite FPS series, and I can’t wait for 4. Out of the ones I’ve played, Reach is my favorite, especially because of the ending.

I’ve just played some Halo 4 Mutilplayer with my Brothers and I love all the improvements they made, like having a sprint button, replacing the crappy Armor Lock with the not crappy shield, and the giving the best control layout (Fish Sticks) in Halo so far, I’m even considering geting a Xbox Live Memebership to play online and improve my loadout when I play with my cousins.

But sorry to I say I’ve never play any of the halo campaigns long enough to beat them, So changes are I won’t bother with the one in halo 4.

So far the, campaign is fucking balls deep in awesome, but I played on flood mode and it was glorious. I can’t say what makes it better than in reach, but it’s just better.

Well Imma list the things.

Like:
LOVE the campaign
Weapons are pretty cool
Ordinance
Promethean vision
Prometheans
Flood mode is much more balanced then reach
Mantises
Thrusters

Dislike:
Lack of duel wield
Custom classes= SMR/Battle Rifle Spam
No Brutes Skirmishers Drones and other covenant
Needs more playlists
Spartan Ops is meh
Other things that it removed from previous halo’s

Halo 4 has been an absolute blast so far, and I don’t see the fun dying out anytime soon. The multiplayer is gorgeously crafted, the additions to Forge are fantastic, the Campaign is thrilling…there’s so many awesome things about this game.

I realized yesterday, playing with a friend on Multiplayer: I haven’t played Halo in forever. After TF2, it just felt so foreign. Now don’t get me wrong, I like it, and Flood mode is great, but I’m just not used to Halo anymore. I need to get reacclimated.

Does anyone else feel like Halo 4’s plot is a fanfiction made into a video game? It’s not bad, but it feels very shallow to me, and more about unnecessary drama and tension than actual plot development.

Also, infinity slayer is broken as all get out.

@brawler

That happens with high profile games. Butthurt Cod fans attack any non Cod shooter. MW3 had an insanely low metacritic score as well. So it goes both ways.

As for the story, I disagree. Its been pretty clear for a while that the cheif and cortana share a very close bond. It has also been known that AIs become rampant after awhile. So I feel that the campaign story did a pretty good job.

WELL YOU CAN GO JUMP OFF A BUILDING THEN

Nah, I kid. I have no problem with other people liking it, but it just feels shallow to me. I completely acknowledge the precedent to the plot, but introducing it all that quickly, as well as making it just Chief on an odd planet fighting the Covenant and Forerunners makes it feel like one of the writers wrote this earlier in the franchise as a fanfiction to show how cool Master Chief is rather than a real plot that contributes to the Halo universe. Seriously, surviving entry into a planet because of armor TWICE in one franchise is a cop out.

Granted, I don’t put a ton of stock in the franchise to begin with, so that certainly doesn’t help.

@teh brawler

If you had read the books( I haven’t) it wouldn’t have seemed all of a sudden. Pretty much everything there has been mentioned before.

@quantum meme

Personally I like it.
