We got a full BTB squad's worth of players getting the game now. Join the Fun!

Just reposing this so It has the top of this page and is seen by more people, not everyone can keep up with GAF:


I want to play Halo 2 With GAF.

What do you all think about this?

Would you be up for this?



Links:

Halo 2 Amazon

Wireless Controller Adapter


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

Does next weekend 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?

I have a friend who might join that Halo 2 Vista play date, if you guys don't mind outsiders. He is good.


Also, since we have a HaloGaF montage thing already going, I thought a HaloGaf fail videos would be cool. If you guys are interested I would love to put it together, if there are enough people participating that is.

It would be similar in style to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9P9uU6Id9z4, although I would put more than 30 minutes into making it and there would be a creative democracy.

Let me know.

Actually I have played a game on that map before, I remember that part and the parking structure. I used a wired controller before but that broke so yesterday I ordered that knockoff wireless sync posted here. It should be here on Friday, I'll be on H2V then.

You still have to install it IIRC, so you're not going to be able to use it like a portable (in the software sense of the word) game. Tray and play allows you to play it immediately after you put it in your system while you install it in the background though.

Well, you're out of luck.

They've said the DMR will win out at long range but will lose to the BR at mid-range. Weapons are balanced against each other at effective ranges. Although that's not to say a better player couldn't beat a BR user at mid-range with a DMR.

There has been very little talk about the pistol for halo4. I'm very interested in hearing more info on it. The pistol in Reach would have been an excellent alternative or at least a perfectly viable alternative to the DMR, and AR for that matter, if it had only been given a larger clip. So i'm really hoping that the pistol isn't a pile of crap come November. Thoughts?

We can choose our weapons. BR or DMR (or both?) means no-one is too worried.

I hardly ever play alone anymore. Playing with randoms never really bothered me but I always find myself enjoying the game more with known teammates.

It is like a whole different game at that point.

I know, but just imagine two Reach like pistols. OP.

Curious to see what they do with it. Considering that will be picking our weapons, and DMR and BR are in the game, I'm assuming the Pistol is a secondary weapon. If it is, it will be interesting to see how they differentiate it from the DMR/BR besides just being shittier, and if it isn't a secondary, but a primary loadout weapon, then it will be very interesting to see what they've done with it.

I'm not really worried about the BR or the DMR. If 343 wants there to be no single dominant weapon, I think they will at least try to make the pistol halfway decent. But I just like the pistol as a weapon in general. Gunslinging is the best. So as long as it's not completely gimped, I'm sure I'll be using it a lot.

Originally Posted by kittens

Haha. I don't mind dual-wielding, but it would mean the pistol by itself isn't very strong. That would make me sad. [EDIT] Just saw you clarify your post. Good call. I'd love to see more than one version, personally.

I can see it being more effective at close range, and adequate at medium range assuming the wielder has a little bit of skill. As much as I'd love to see it beefed up enough to serve as a primary weapon, I'm guessing 343 won't do that. So then it will probably come down to how much range they want it to have and how powerful they want it to be at close to medium range. As long as it can counter the AR, I suppose I can live with that.

Just noticed the new UNSC logo from that Infinity concept art is on the side of the DMR. I kind of hope that's not final, we've gotten so used to the current logo over the years, and it seems like a strange thing to change just for the sake of changing it.
