Has there been any info on the number of maps we're getting at launch? Reach was horrible in that regard..

I don't expect someone who played a handful of matches in a friendly environment to give much critique. And I don't expect people from 343 to say anything negative about their game. :P

Edit: What website are y'all using to book flights? I'm just looking on Expedia.

I'm still thinking of going. You should go!

That might explain why people felt bloom was in, but didn't notice it affecting their play.

I hope that's the case.

I assumed it was such. Visual fluff instead of an actual mechanic like the Sniper's bloom, since they already said there's no Reach-style bloom in the game before. It wouldn't make sense with the way they've changed the other guns to let the DMR fire faster again, because then there'd be no point to grabbing the BR.

My statement includes people like kyle and over though. Hate it or love it, people aren't judging it until they play it (all the cries for some MP footage is totally justified). The info drips are words on a page or still images. So far away from launch too.

Weird question for those who usually attend PAX West:

What hotel(s) do you guys usually stay at? I'm planning on going this year, but I want to look for a Hotel that is close to the event. It has to be pretty affordable to.

EDIT: Halo, Heck yeah! And so forth...

You can judge it without playing it. You could tell Spire was going to suck a million assholes the first time you saw a picture of that giant purple tower.

And for people crying about COD comparisons and how I'm beating a dead horse and running shit into the ground... every new piece of information we get makes the game sound more and more like COD. I mean, today we learned you press the d-pad to use killstreak rewards. In Halo. What the hell do people expect me to say?

He raises a fair point, one that I'd thought about previously and agreed with.

The impressions were positive last time around too. We even (mostly) enjoyed the beta and the final game at first. The problems weren't immediately evident to most.
Also being somewhat cynical and not giving 343I blanket benefit of the doubt (after Anniversary & Reach's playlists) is fair.

I'm either an asshole or a soothsayer depending on HaloGAFs mood lol. I've never seen more people quote my posts in support than when the first deluge of H4 MP stuff leaked out of Game Informer and everyone was pissed off. Now people are getting optimistic again so I'm a jerk who hates Halo. It's good stuff. I wish E Z B was around right now.

TBH with you, the way that MP details have been divulged has been quite annoying. I appreciate Frankie/Ellis coming in here to clarify certain details. But I Feel that there should have been a better way to introduce elements (certainly the controversial parts) of the game to the public.

I'm not advocating the return of dictators or their photoshoppers.

I just. I don't like what I'm hearing either. I think being vocal about these worries and pointing out that an over abundance of hope or superficial enjoyment (like with Reach) is a good thing.
I'd rather complain now and be happily won over than be "YOU CAN'T JUDGE THE INFO IN FRONT OF YOU, YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME MANNNNN".

I think this is very true too. One could say that this is a freer, more "honest" way of presenting it, but there's a good middle ground that could be struck.
Footage & commentary breaking everything down for "this" "TBD" stage of the project.

That does look fantastic. Minimum HUD elements is a huge plus in my book. Cortana looks a little odd but it's both early and hard to see.

I gotta say, Kyle's not exactly far off the mark.

We haven't had much info, but the information we have raises issues that 343i knows will make fans worried.

There are a lot of changes that seem to have been taken right from CoD, based on the information we have been getting.

I still have faith that 343i knows what the hardcore fans want and will cater to them appropriately. However, Kyle is only basing his opinions (which have been reasonable, albeit sometimes not given reasonably) on the info we are given - which is all we can do.
