This is going to confuse me for a long time. I've come to associate Frankles with that avatar. I suppose with a new handle a new avatar is needed.

Exhibit A:


As you can see in the movie 1 hour and 12 minutes in Charlie and his Grandpa take some stuff and magically float in a "thrusters like motion."

Exhibit B:


In 2011 E3 press conference Master Chief is using it. There are 2 thrusters, meaning only 2 nights of sleep left until a vidoc explaining the user abilities and how they work.



Back to my paper..

Bloom didn't break maps, though. That just made the experience awful to begin with. Without armor abilities (no sprint), base movement would have been much much faster.

weapons combined with armor abilities combined with bad movement combined with bad design (half open doors, etc.) combined with bad grenades broke Countdown.

so Reach broke Countdown

You don't have to have a slow base movement to have sprint. Look at H4, what little we've seen seems to be a much faster than Reach and even 3 but it still has sprint.

Correct. Or one full game of solo score attack. So 75 games of solo score attack would be necessary.... or 25 games (sets) of arcade attack (with 15 waves or 3 rounds each).

Everyone in HaloGAF now needs to switch to Frankie's avatar just to confuse the hell out of the Waypoint forums. Bonus points for posting insane ideas and getting them to buy it (i.e. Halo 4 will be set on Mars, with Master Chief fighting demons spawned from an experiment that accidentally opens a portal to Hell).

Yep.

But I'll take a 60fps re-release on the next xbox.

Or they could put Halo 4 out on PC. That'd also work.

Take out 4 hour long campaign, Special Ops, whatever other stuff, put in 60fps clean MP w/ AT LEAST AS GOOD AS XBLA GAME TRIALS EVOLUTION map editor and theater, maybe throw some dedis on top, call it the Walshy Edition and sell me that bitch for $350. ship it and consider it sold

Anyone use Crackle? The advertisements are freakishly hilarious or just plain ridiculous.
Otherwise great service for quick show but crummy quality in dark scenes.

If Halo 4 needs 2 discs, which I think things are pointing towards that, its ok with me as long as I don't always have to switch them.

Unless the campaign is non-linear, I'm not sure how'd there be constant switching.

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'm not talking about Halo4... I'm saying that armor abilities in Reach broke the maps. With no sprint, base movement would have been faster. 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.

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.
