Hey guys. I just checked my emails and I've got a "piece of the Halo 4 puzzle". On monday, from what seems like the Xbox 360 newsletter. Its a long strip of what could be some nice panoramic halo artwork. The one I got is 1 out of 32!
Has this been discussed yet?

Not hard to figure out why the maps are as bad as they are. "Good enough!" seems to be the Halo developer mantra.

Rockets also run out of ammo, don't allow the player to do crazy flip shit moves that make them near impossible to hit and don't let the player climb to the highest part of the map allowing for undeterred fire/aim on the enemy.

Her equating the Banshee to power weapons is idiotic/ignorant at best.

Only 2 shots in Rockets though usually whereas a Banshee (when used competently) is much more devastating.

So this is interesting. Here's the email It came from: <xboxreps@engage.xbox.com>. Sadly I can't do much with this while I'm on mobile.

I'll look around on Waypoint and Bnet later, maybe others have reported.

Rockets are also easy to avoid. When dumb players use rockets they telegraph their shot, which make it incredibly easy to side-step.

When dumb people kill me with the banshee I take on a personal vendetta to DMR them to death.

They don't give a shit when you finally kill them either. Mostly because they've already raked up more than enough kills.

Doesn't Gamesager actually look like that Japanese popstar that looks like a woman, but is actually a man?

So, he's the Victor Victoria of Halo?

God, that video is horrible to watch. Reach's Banshee is a fucking abomination.

Yeah, that's nice and all comparing the Rocket launcher to a Banshee that has unlimited ammo, an unlimited amount of flips, can get anywhere on the map in mere seconds and requires an entire team to team-shoot it to take it down.

Makes sense.

They just needed to find the laser. That was the only issue, team shooting aside ;)

To be honest, though, I've always found it interesting watching "pros" play the standard, non-MLG games. Tsquared did a few tuts4nubs videos, and I thought it was cool to watch.

I said the laser was perfectly balanced in Halo 3. I was laughed at. Team Downer, please carve another victory scratch into the HaloGAF Boulder of Correctness thank you.

There's a small list of things GAF won't defend:

-Child-rapists/molesters

If there isn't a laser loadout or armour ability in Halo 4, I will be disappointed. Maybe a recharging Power Drainer AA. Yes.

Makes sense.

The banshee is a vehicle, the rockets are a weapon.
I wasn't comparing the two in overall effectiveness.
I was simply stating that some weapons are "overpowered" and yet still used in competitive play.

I wasn't even responding to you.
And the Rockets are overpowered and that's why they only have a limited amount of ammo. Vehicles shouldn't be as ridiculously overpowered as the Banshee currently is because they have an unlimited amount of ammo.
