I think ill keep it for that damn music! Its a little bit tricky!!! Its really complo-cated! It might sound silly but the way they kick up the music as your gameplay kicks up is really effective. Its sooo good.


Out of curiosity does Team Slayer still have dual voting options or is it currently 100% vanilla?

I somehow managed to get two "writers bumps" from playing it for so long. Was on it for at least 6 hours last night. I have no idea why this game is so damn addicting.

What do you think HaloGaf? Could it be Halo 4 related?

It could be anything, and I really hate tweets like that.

Not long before we find out anyway, I guess.

Frank's OHI said he was showing off the game to the European press and I'm assuming that Eurogamer is from Europe so it's very plausible.

Sounds possible, I imagine we are getting very close to seeing or hearing something. Im hoping next week may bring some clarity of when we can expect some more solid info.

Tweet doesn't seem about Halo to me, maybe it's because I'm used to Bungie's more of an acquired taste kind of great visuals, but I don't see Halo 4 wowing the general public. I'm sure Halo fans like us will really like it when it's shown but the whole gaming crowd will just be somewhat indiferent to it. Just a hunch.

Homeboyd has a good point in that Halo 4 will never be seen because it has obviously been canned months ago!

Usually what bothers me is that they are not talking about the games, but more the business side.

Often there is no real discussion, it's just the same opinion repeated over and over again.

Since launch I've always thought the Sanctuary remake called Asylum in Reach could have been so much more than it ended up being. While I appreciate the fact that Bungie even bothered remaking one of my favorite maps from Halo 2, the end results always seemed a bit half-done to me. Oddly placed objects, inaccuracies and framedrops are common on Asylum. Now, nearly a year and a half later the same version that came with the disc is still in matchmaking. After such a long time Forgers have discovered ways to create their maps more efficiently, something Bungie apparently didn't have the time for (at least for Asylum and other launch Forge maps). That's why I decided to start building my own version of Sanctuary a few weeks ago. The result of this labor is Refuge.



With Refuge I tried to recreate Sanctuary accurately, while using as few objects and as little budget as possible. I heard that previous remakes of Sanctuary were denied deployment into matchmaking because they didn't support splitscreen. I was hoping to make a version that does support it. I'm really happy with the end result because I ended up using only around 4100$ budget which is roughly 1500$ less than Asylum! Combine that with the fact that I don't use lights and the sight-lines are shorter Refuge is sure to perform better than Asylum. In my tests so far I haven't recorded any complaints about the framerate, splitscreen and singlescreen alike.

Aside from performance issues that Asylum had, I also decided to include some changes to the geometry of the map. While I did like some of the things that were different from the original overall it didn't feel like Sanctuary.
Some (but not all) of the changes I've made:
-Raised the Needle Rifle walkway
-Removed the line of sight from sniper to sniper
-Made the walkway from sniper to the middle equal length on both sides of the map
-Moved around the rocks so they're more like the placement in Sanctuary
-Made a small jump-up to the top of the middle ring just like in the Halo 2 version of the map
-Kept the jump-up right in front of the Shotgun tunnel but made it a bit easier to use
-Added objects next to Blue Needle Rifle walkway to replicate the rock cliff on the Red side

I've made some screenshots so you can get a better idea of what the map looks like:
-An overview of the map
-Red base
-Blue base
-Sniper spawn
-Blue rock area
-Middle ring
-Sniper-to-middle line of sight
-Raised Needle Rifle walkway

It's set up for all gametypes (except for Invasion and Race), supports teams of every colour and also Free-For-All. Keep in mind that Refuge has dynamic spawns for Slayer. This means that players aren't limited to their own side in regards to spawns. They can now spawn everywhere on the map resulting is less spawn-killing and less frustrating matches.

Looks good, will check it out when I get home.

Agreed. I always like to play games in chronological order of release. Let's you see how a series evolves, for better or for worse.

See this is why the game should just go 100% TU already.

Yeah although there really isn't anything substantial to discuss due to the lack of actual info about the game out there, which is why I don't really post there.

Regarding Refuge and other forged maps to replace current offerings... Frank/David would 343i consider improving the current Asylum by replacing it with Refuge? Is it possible for next update?

I'm not sure if the priority is high enough, but I would love an improved Asylum to be in MM. I like Asylum, but improving it would mean I love it.
