Still think that Jeff should have been a firefight voice, would have been awesome.

I hope you're right.

There's no way he's not coming back.

But if it really is about this whole Infinity thing than it means Steitzer, in some form, exists in Halo canon :P

As you rank up in Halo 4 you can change the name of the currency to whatever you like. Each type of currency has its own economy and exchange rates. There's going to be a stock market trading mini game.

Or this



Or paired up with them again!



These sorts of games will reach the 50 mark even faster. I can imagine a scenario where a BK dies by teamshot, instantly respawns, attempts a sprint beatdown on his recent assailant only to be teamshot to ribbons again. Rinse and repeat for neg 30 in a game to 50. Will the fabled trueskill even be viable in a drop in/drop out environment?

We will not be talking about ranking or progression in detail for a while. We are not using TruSkill in the same way Reach did. That's about all we can say for now.

Suffice it to say the game will match people appropriately - Tashi to Kyle, for example, and me to WalshOgreSkrillexTwinBlains.

So you mean there's actually going to be Truskill?

Thanks. Appreciate the response, really. I understand the timing of such detail divulgence is outside of your control. Hope the new system works and hope it provides enough stimulus for players who aren't interested in Spartan Points (XP, Credits) to keep playing from game to game and feel rewarded for their abilities.

I believe Bungie said that Trueskill was everywhere, but because some playlists had low populations you couldn't expect it to work that well.

Only places that were challenging were Arena once you got into Onyx and MLG because all the tryhards live there.

Nope. Although I had been using Skirllex (and the headbanging gif)as a shortcut for wub wub for months without ever actually listening to him. Then I did and I actually like his stuff. But our princess is in another castle. That narrows it down. Again, composer isn't going to be a surprise per se, but you'll hear more about that (fairly) soon, with a very cool video to accompany it.

Iiiiinteresting. Not a suprise per se makes it odd.
More indications it's the Massive Attack guy? Or what? Because wouldn't anyone but him or Tajeen be surprising?

Watching Formal play Halo 3 from earlier today. Struggling a bit with the sniper. Funny how different sniping and BRing is in Reach. Leading BR shots is still absolutely terrible.

http://www.twitch.tv/formal/b/314339100

Makes Snipedown's unrelenting wape with the sniper in H3 even more impressive. Ima watch Snipedown: The Movie and throw a few chairs tonight in honor of that legend.

Not going to be a (big?) surprise? Hmm. Halo Wars' composer, Marty is back for more Halo, maybe Jack Wall (didn't do ME3 OST pieces, other client(s)).... John Williams? Just guessing here.

Was the concept art trailer music made for it specifically or was it a piece for Halo 4?

You have to grow a pair and play past 10PM. What kind of little kid are you working day shift anyways don't you greet at Wal-Mart?


Oh my someone is testing MLG Onslaught and it looks so good. That was my favorite MLG map in H3. Hope they can get it into Reach MM.

I don't really like MLG in Reach though, I gave it a try but MLG hasn't been good since it was Team Hardcore in H2.
