I still find it amazing the ADS bothers you so much.
I'm in the same boat though. I mean, can anyone please explain to me why you need "Smartlink" with a Needler, Shotgun, Assault Rifle, or any weapon that doesn't have precise aiming? And the weapons that do apparently have this newly added animation doesn't make sense either. I thought smartlink was built into the helmet interface of the Spartan and therefore didn't even need to use the weapon directly like that.

Sad to see that there isn't any LAN options either which sucks for parties, same case for MCC. Honestly though, the only thing that upsets me the most is sprint as it just doesn't make any sense to me when you have people with shields and an additional way to boost into cover. Especially now because there hasn't been any word if there are going to be playlists without sprint.

You told me to put you on ignore so I did. Literally 98% of your posts in the threads were nonstop actual swearing at developers calling them dumb fucks because they didn't have server selection. That is not hyperbole either. You literally take it too far in your criticism because the servers are shitty in France or wherever.



Don't even pretend to compare me and my criticism to you and yours. That tirade of yours was in the Gears of War remaster thread where I had to call you on it.



Edit: Here's another great Leyasu post in a thread about gaming disappointments. 343 has said the majority of the games are on dedicated servers but no they're all liars, it's absolute fucking bullshit.
Says the man that would "terrible things" to have ADS removed and goes on about it constantly. Pot meet kettle no??

Frank should really see if he has about ten or fifteen minutes time one day, do sort of unofficial AMA here. Just ask him or even Josh a ton of questions. They choose whatever they want to answer, get as many questions in just for clarity sake.

Dude, you asked me to ignore you, I did. Why do you keep talking to me or about me? You do understand sarcasm and dark humor right? Terrible things above meant I would do anything, and I mean ANYTHING ie. Even turn tricks. I dislike ADS, and I use my own opinion and give examples why I don't like it.

You on the other hand act indignant. Like it's a personal affront to you. You swear nonstop, call the devs assholes, bullshit liars, verbally abuse them in random threads where you bring up server selection nonstop. I wasn't the only one who noticed either. In the Gears thread. We're all talking about how amazing the remaster is, what could be added or changed and you're going off on how devs can't get it through 'their thick fucking skulls' about adding server selection, as if it's high priority because you say so. There is a way to voice criticism and your way is ridiculously rude and uncalled for.

So again, you asked me to put you on ignore, so I did. Feel free to stop talking about me, or quoting me. And no, it's not necessarily pot meets kettle.

I'm wondering, did the single player change direction from what they showed last year?

That desert teaser suggested MC as a lone wolf, not part of a group....

Kinda disappointed that's not the direction any more...
You asked a question, then answered/convinced yourself.

As per Stinkle's comments through most of this thread, there will be large, expansive environments similar to old games (or bigger) with more freedom.

It just doesn't demo well on stage with such a short time-frame @ E3.

Maybe they'll have more time at GC to show off a bigger/more Halo like demo.

No change in direction. We wanted to tease a simple story about Chief being off reservation and something dangerous awakening.

How early into development did you guys decide you needed the new character of Jameson Locke as opposed to getting one of the introduced Halo 4 characters primarily Spartan Palmer or Spartan Thorne to take the lead? If Palmer was received slightly better, would she be the main co-lead as many of us thought? Because she did get the new novel, comic series and even Spartan Assault, as well as being central to Spartan Ops.

Frankie,

Can you provide any clarification on the dual voice actor situation with Spartan Locke?

Both guys seem like cool dudes; just curious about insight into what's going on there.

A CGI teaser to announce a game is not always what you will see happen in the actual game (even though its entirely possible that section could still happen at some point in the game). Also the majority of Halo fans are ecstatic that the Blue team and MC are back together again, me included :)

So, light rifle and DMR now have scopes that encompass the entire screen, while the BR and the carbine have the smaller scopes. Is this discrepancy there to solidify that the DMR and LR are more long range based or..?

Yeah It seems very logical to have Palmer being the one hunting the Chief. Not that I don't like Locke, mind you!

I would say yes, and I think it makes pretty good sense. Although I really hope they change the final smart scope design of the covenant carbine. Such a cool gun, but that scope looks like something you would find at a toy store. I honestly don't mind the sound though, a lot of other people were complaining about that.

It's not so much about me doubting there will be large environments. I know they'll be there, I was wondering more about MC out on his own, no back up, just him, the remnants of Cortana and memories as his fights through his grief and uncovers new mysteries.

Yeah, that's certainly true.

Ah, that's fair enough and thanks for clarifying. I really like that idea and I'm not entirely opposed to the team dynamic either, gives me serious Republic Commando vibes. That's an extremely good thing, more games need to look to RC for inspiration. Still bums me out we didn't get sequels to that incredible and so underrated game.

One thing, can you say if we will see any solo missions with just MC or will the team always be by his side?

Dunno if you know this or not but the Creative Director behind Republic Commando is also the creative director behind H5. So the similarities are not just a coincidence :p

Judging by Spartan Ops, it kind of just seemed like Palmer was always going to be hunting down Halsey instead.

Yea I've been hearing about somebody else voicing Locke. Would really appreciate clarification on whether it's Colter or Amadi because I've seen people say both.

Colter is face, Amadi is voice. We deferred to his Luke Cage schedule because he's a cool guy and it's a huge break. Ike is amazing and was one of our faves during first auditions and so far reaction to his voice has been fantastic .

Seriously? Holy shit.

My hype just shot through the roof for the single player. I was wondering why the team interactions felt so similar, I just figured someone happened across a copy of RC and decided to implement some of those aspects.

Halo 5 carbine zoomed with ADS versus H2A carbine zoomed classic. I mean I guess you can make the argument that you have more 'clarity' in Halo 5 since the screen isn't darkened with an effect in H2A, but if you look at the middle, your FoV in H2A isn't blocked by anything. You see clearly through the scope areas as well as the visual info on all sides (top, bottom, left right), whereas in Halo 5, the entire bottom middle is blocked.

If we're talking lore, gameplay, futuristic perspective, obviously H2A makes more sense. If the sides weren't darkened, you get clear field of view and lines of sight. I don't bring it up because I don't understand why it's in. I know why it's there. I always just said the previous solutions were better visually. ADS has added nothing in my opinion. And you see I explain it without having to insult or name call the devs?

In the Gameinformer preview, when Chief breaks through the rocks and 'sees' Cortana he's alone.. but its implied maybe he's dreaming or something.. or maybe his geas are influencing his thoughts? I could see another such sequence playing out like the teaser trailer.. him alone in the desert.. searching [in his mind] for a way to bring back Cortana, and suddenly A WILD GUARDIAN APPEARS!

Or something like that, or it could have just been a teaser for teaser sake.

Rooster Teeth did an interview with Amadi at E3 about the role. I believe Amadi did the "All Hail the Conquering Hero" ad voice too

Colter was obviously doing mocap, at least (seen in The Sprint)
Huh, interesting. Maybe it was a Buck-like thing, where they needed extra stuff recorded and couldn't get him due to scheduling.

Edit:

Or this:

Colter is face, Amadi is voice. We deferred to his Luke Cage schedule because he's a cool guy and it's a huge break. Ike is amazing and was one of our faves during first auditions and so far reaction to his voice has been fantastic .
