Yep, that is very good to hear, especially coming from the MLG crowd which is always (justifiably, I agree with them) complaining about movement form the past couple Halo games.

I know people get excited about their master race BR, but did people think that if they put the DMR in the game as well that it wasn't going to be just as good as the BR?

Being able to choose between those starting weapons is awesome.

I am hoping for two weapons that are equal in combat but with very different feedback.

I want to play Halo 2 With GAF.

What do you all think about this?

Would you be up for this?

EDIT: Date will most likely be changed to the next Saturday the 12th to allow for maximum drunkage on cinco de mayo and shipping from amazon. Can't edit the picture now, sleep time.



Links:

Halo 2 Amazon

Wireless Controller Adapter


What we play depends on how many people participate and what we want to play. 

Does this time work for everyone or should I push it forward to allow for shipping time?

Like it says, if you want to participate, PM ME. 

If your considering it, PM me so I can get an estimate of how many of you there will be.

Any suggestions? Questions, about this or Halo 2 Vista?


This thread is now diamonds, I mean, a halo 2'stalgia thread.

Pretty sure they already said DMR has a locked firing rate... therefore eliminating the possibility of bloom.

Didn't they also confirm in a bulletin that 4 wouldn't have bloom on any weapons? At least nothing similar to Reach's bloom?

Yup.

Does the BR have spread? Is it hitscan? -xBrutaIity

The BR is a three-shot burst weapon. It is hitscan. In its current tuning, it has recoil (not bloom) which causes it to rise slightly (in a predictable and suppressible way). It is not a replacement for the DMR as has been discussed in the community. You will not see bloom as it currently exists in Vanilla Reach on any weapon, but there will be different methods for reticle targeting that vary depending on the weapon, and players will have a wide arsenal of weapons to choose from. More news about that later.

Reminds me of the beta version of Reach's covenant splazor. Nearly had a fucking heart attack when I was first hit by that thing. Sounded like the earth was grinding me between its teeth while a symphony of hacksaws scraped against blackboards.

I edited the playdate picture for some clarifications.

HALO 2 Vista DOES NOT Work with windows XP.

It's got relatively low requirements, any PC with a graphics card from the last ~5-6 will play it well.

The tentative gather time is 5:00 CST.

Again, I can postpone it to allow time for people to get the game.

They are $20 at most best buys last I checked and in stock.

Halo 2's BTB was my favorite of the bunch. Don't know if it that's nostalgia or what - it just seemed made for that mode moreso than later games. I was never very good at it, but it was always a good time. Maybe later games included more of that skill gap we've been talking about, along with people taking things a lot more seriously.

A lot of Halo 2's BTB maps played very nicely with both objective and slayer games

2 flag containment was fucking AMAZING and so was 1 Flag Relic and Terminal

I remember Zanzibar and Headlong. And some other level that takes place on some pretty close knit streets. That and that I couldn't stand those bullet-sponge Brutes but that I also took great pleasure in watching those same Brutes fight it out with Elites. Hell, its been forever and a day since I last played.

And to think, I didn't actually grok Halo until Halo 3.
