Where did the multiple disc thing come from? Just speculation or was it hinted at?

I'd love multiple discs because it'd mean nothing had to be cut to fit or compressed more, etc. Do it like BF3: Campaign on Disc 1, Multi and Spartan Ops on Disc 2.

Well the texture pack for BF3 was a hard drive thing, not a disk space issue which we've been discussing.

As you can't allow an Xbox game to require the hard drive, dice made the texture pack an optional install to get better textures in the game.

Max Payne 3 is 2 disc, just people guessing.

I think it stemmed from Max Payne 3 having 2 discs. Pure speculation though.

Say what you want about it being possible to have sprint and fast movement in Halo4, but it didn't happen in Reach. And being able to sprint around each map with OP melee weapons and shotgun, in combination with nerfed precision weapons, and you have a recipe for disaster, especially with no bleed-through. If there were no jetpacks in Reach, it's likely that we would have had higher jump heights. No armor lock? Perhaps grenades wouldn't have been as strong. Too many things to account for and balance for map designers to make legitimately decent maps. Not saying that armor abilities could have been done differently to make them work, I'm just saying that didn't happen in Reach.

Apparently, it has to do with Max Payne 3, but I've been thinking it could be on 2 discs for awhile now. Spartan Ops makes me think it's even more possible.

Ahh, I see. So I guess I could see that happening, given the visual quality we've seen so far.

Yeah I wouldn't be surprises if there is something like that.

I've been seriously impressed with the visuals from what we've seen so far. To me the Xbox has felt "maxed out" for a bit now, but devs keep impressing with their ability to squeeze more out of their games despite the old hardware.

The FPS made with Trial Evolution's forge blew my mind, you can even aim down sights.

That game needs to be in everyone's xbox, and not just for the little big planet stuff, but because the core bike game itself is that good.

And watching it made my brain hurt. They literally said COD should die so the internet would stop talking about it, likened the Madden franchise (one of the best sports sims EVER) to merging WWF and WCW, and said that no matter how good H4 is the series should still die.

Sounds like some grumpy fatties to me.

This is one of the greatest improvements over the first game - there are a lot more easy/fun motocross tracks to enjoy in single player before you hit the wall of rage-inducing impossible gauntlets. My favorite was the 13-minute long track that took very few restarts, it was just a series of fun hills and jumps.

Hit the 500 restart limit on a few tracks this weekend. Not as bad as hitting the 30-minute time limit at only 300 restarts and 10 feet from the finish line.

Beginner to Medium Tracks have that covered. Hard tracks you can still gun down but might take some more fancy bike work to get through.

Extreme tracks are fucking stupid.

300 faults and 20 minutes on one fucking jump. Goddamn.

To be fair they also said that trilogies that try for a fourth installment all end up sucking. So there's that too. Not that it makes it any better a pick.

Resident Evil says hello (shouldn't have pushed it with RE5 though). Not making a jab at you, Null, I'm just sayin'... it's not a law of the gaming universe or anything.

Bottom Line: A crappy gaming site using crappy tactics to generate traffic to their crappy articles. Just surprised it's not IGN again.

Rocky IV is amazing goddammit. :P

And games have a history of extremely well received fourquels (Resident Evil 4, GTA IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Call of Duty 4) , though I'm guessing they meant ones that were planned as trilogies, but that seems like splitting hairs.
