Anything else I should know?
http://www.halogaf.com -For group get togethers and podcast
http://www.arenagaming.us/wp/ -For major Halo tournaments. Knoxville is starting today, June 7th.

This thread is for Halo 4 discussion only. Anything else should go into HolaGAF http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=563441 I don't know when we'll merge again.

Previous OT

E3 discussion should take place in HolaGAF or in the Gaming Side threads unless they directly pertain to Halo 4.

Also, HGS.

Halo 4 Turbo is more fun than this OT split.

Disclaimer: I was paid CAD $4.19 by 343 to write that.

What is Turbo though? The links in the OP are blocked at my work.


And please don't tell me "Turbo" is what 343 is calling the latest software version of the game. That would be incredibly dorky.

It's a joke referring to the increased movement speed and kill times with most of the starting weapons leading to much faster (and more fun) gameplay overall.

I had a great alternative thread title but it would be a spoiler for something

Speaking of State of Decay, do NOT leave anyone sad or angry in that game, they might off themselves and a few others while you are offline.

I'll be home and ready to dong at 8 CST. You should definitely help me test out my 4v4-6v6 map Synthesis. Currently supports everything but Grifball and Dominion.

It's not for Halysis anymore but I finalized the way the Gravity Gauntlet works. Keep in mind it has two variants: standard, and an "Affinity" mode where its proper user gets a bonus when wielding it.

Pressing right trigger looses a basic cone of damage like a shotgun; it kills instantly but the corpses get flung into next week. If you're the proper element and wield a Gravity Gauntlet, you get the bonus of this "force cone" painting a portal on a surface of your choice. The first portal is a receiver, second is a sender.

The Gauntlet runs on a battery but can't overheat using conventional methods. Your Gauntlet will only overheat if 5 people go through your portals, which anyone can use.

The melee is an instant kill as well. If you kill someone with the Gauntlet, it "flags" the corpse and allows it to go through your portals, allowing for all sorts of ridiculous mindgames.

frankie pls

Holy shit. Turbo has made the game unplayable for me. Went 4-15 because the lag made kills ridiculously impossible against the other team.

Why is Infinity CTF still a thing?
Why is JIP in CTF still so bad?
No one EVER should join a game down 3-1.

110% movement makes LAG feel worse.

You just got put into the backup servers. If you dashboard and reenter, you'll see everything(and everyone).
