Sundance DiGiovanni wants only one shooter on the circuit. From twitter.
He said a long time ago, that it would either be Black Ops 2 or H4. Since Microsoft likes giving the rights to halo to virgin, MLG gets the other. Let's face it, Blops 2 has the superior features for competitive gaming at events.

yep, even I would choose COD at this point, they have to look what has more people, better features and everything and this is COD

But it isn't balanced at all so I don't know :(

Tell us more about this deal that you know everything about.
I'm pretty sure Microsoft knows about MLG at this point. MLG can't wait around forever for halo when they have the biggest console fps sitting around just waiting to be used. Hell, why do you think Treyarch added the spectator mode in Blops 2. For tournaments. Besides, MLG was asking months ago what would people like to see more Blops 2 or Halo, guess which won.

I noticed they took the halo tab off of their homepage also. End of an era.
 
Okay, so let me get this straight:

We've all walked in to the opening of a new restaurant. It's a spiritual successor to an older restaurant you used to love and eat at almost weekly. The place is under new management and while there are some familiar faces most of these people are new and different. You've eagerly been awaiting your chance to eat here because you loved the meals at the old place and these people have given you certainty that these meals will be just as good if not better than the old ones.

You sit down and look around you. You see some buddies you used to eat with and wave to them. They wave back. You can see the look of excitement on his face and you wonder if it's the same as yours. A friend of yours is sitting a little ways off to your left. He wasn't so sure of this new place because he didn't completely trust some of the staff and the advertisements were lackluster. The place looks nice but they can't think of how anyone would be able to match the older restaurant with this new staff or methodology.

Orders for drinks are taken and the staff disappears for some time. You ask when you're going to get the meal you ordered, but the waiter only says "It's on its way, trust us."

Suddenly, it's time. The chef himself appears from the kitchen to present the inaugural meal of this restaurant and you can't wait. He opens reveals the plate and puts in in front of you and... you're very underwhelmed. The plates and maybe the bread are even from this restaurant. The steak you ordered is an undercooked microwave meal from a grocery down the street, the mashed potatoes are imitation. They're cold to the touch and have obviously been out of the microwave for some time. You also have a side of fries from Burger King, still in the paper holster with their logo on it. You look around to see that the staff has started filing out of the restaurant. You manage to flag one down to ask what's going on and why they're all leaving. "We're going on vacation," he says. "It's almost the holidays, you know."

"But who's going to get my drink?" your skeptical friend asks. "I could maybe wash this down if I could get a drink."

"Soon, trust us," the staff replies as he turns and makes his way towards the door. People begin picking at their food and most appear to be disappointed. You're not horribly thrilled but you're glad that someone opened the old restaurant back up. Your furious friend is shouting to the staff and slamming on the table, your excited friends from earlier are cramming the food down and asking for seconds, and you look down and just can't seem to finish it.

You look down to your phone and start watching trailers for movies while you think. Twitchcops, a buddy cop movie staring Cosmo and Siglemic as new partners in a police department in downtown LA trying to save their dog, Frankie. It looks interesting, maybe you'll watch it later.

A look up to the side of the table shows a group wearing matching jackets for some sport you've hear of. "We were told the 'Bacon Double Guiltyburger' was on the way," one of them says to the waiter. "Where are our orders?"

"Oh, we don't have them right now," the waiter says. "We have the ingredients in the kitchen if you'd like to make it yourself, though."

"BRO THIS SHIT IS AMAZING!" you hear one of your friends shout as he highfives one of the group that he came with. Your furious friend gets up from the table to hunt down some of the staff, and you start poking the leathery meat-thing with your plastic spork. You would have liked a metal fork, but it doesn't really matter to you. You're just glad the restaurant is open.

Back to the phone. You see that there's a showing for Twitchcops in about forty five minutes in a theater not too far from here. A glance to the side shows some of the patrons at the bar watching a sport they all seem to hate. It came as a part of a package deal for the restaurant's parent company, so it's showing this new sport instead of the one the old owners used to show.

You look up to see that your furious friend is actively starting fist fights with the staff who are left somewhat dazed as your excited friends are simultaneously ripping down the pants of the staff and attempting to put their penises in their mouths. You don't understand anything, but you'd like some A1 or something with your leathery thing, which is something most places have, but no one is listening to you. You can't tell if they can't hear you, or if they don't care, or if they're avoiding you because for some reason they don't have A1.

The police arrive and cuff your friend for assault, but it appears as though your excited friends have finished fellating the staff and resumed their seats at the table, so they aren't arrested. You get up and leave with someone else at the table. You look at each other but neither of you say a word, your eyes have said everything that needs to be said. You flag a cab to go to the theater and briefly, if only for a second, you remember that you never got your drink.

Welcome to Halo 4.

Okay, so let me get this straight:
Holy shit. 10/10.

EDIT:
Then I read this:
All that food analogy and you didn't use "Master Chef". More points deducted for no mention of Doritos or Dew, and no reference to the shitty Guy Fieri restaurant that the one you're in is obviously copying.


You blew it, kid.
Had to drop it to an 8/10. Squid's got a valid point.

You can dislike what the restaurant is serving, you can be unhappy with what's on the menu... but when you start bitching that the product actually has no quality, I stop caring about your opinion. Poorly-written fan-fiction is still tolerable, if it's funny. This isn't even that.)

I played "Shutdown" on Legendary today. That mission could have been good and big. Infinity is a big ship but you rarely see it in action in the game. It would have been incredible if Infinity had attacked the Didact. Infinity drops Cruiser. Giant fight. Banshees attacking you etc. etc. etc. But now it is "empty". I love the symmetrical room. I hate the gondola ride. And Hell I dislike the interior design of the sky pillars. It is such a letdown after the interior Forerunner design in Reclaimer and Requiem.

You forgot the part where anyone with a British Passport only gets served half the meal.

Are you determining Halo 4's quality based solely on its visuals? Because I can't see how anyone can play a single online match and not see how it's completely broken in a myriad of ways.

I've played nearly 500 online matches, and I will disagree vehemently that it's 'completely broken'. I think you don't understand what 'completely broken' means.

"We're sorry but your Halo is in a different castle"

You walk into the restaurant and see these gorgeous tables of all different kinds of beautiful oak and mahogony beautifully stained in all different kinds of ways, but they say those seats are all taken by people who called ahead. You are seated in the corner on a flimsy makeshift card table with a plastic sheet over it. Certain people who called ahead got a nice table guaranteed to them but the restaurant smeared poop on the seating. Just for funsies.

The restaurant brings you a frothy cold Mt. Dew, a stack of doritos, french fries outsourced from BK, and offers you a gorgeous 16oz filet mignon steak with just the perfect amount of pink showing, only you see its covered with ketchup, you take a bite and find theres M&M's inside, people like M&M's why wouldnt they like them added to Steak!?. You are forced to send it back only they tell you your new good steak is Coming Soon™. They go on vacation before cooking your steak so you dont get it until 3 months later, even though you spent all year working and you barely got off Holidays let alone a vacation.

Meanwhile 75% of the people at the restaurant leave for a better restaurant that serves them food at a real life time frame.

The restaurant sees this and releases three new huge chicken plates, but you really wanted steak. So you're still dissapointed.

You go home and jerk off to Holly Michaels. Because at least thats satisfying.

The End.

PS: This is a Halo 4 META4.

So, we're in our third month with Halo 4 and we still have the same basic monthly challenge that we had at launch?

EDIT: just read Virgin Gaming's reply that Cyren tweeted. One quote stood out, "We’re here to allow any gamer the chance to compete for epic prizes, without prejudice to his skill level". This is as far as I've read because I have serious doubts that this post is real. Can anyone confirm?

I can't wait for MLB to hand me my World Series MVP trophy. Why shouldn't I get one? Is Bud Selig prejudiced against my skill level?

Agree. I think Halo 4 has a has a lot of problems that, for me, make it "completely not fun", but I wouldn't describe the game as broken. It works, mostly as intended. I just don't like the intended result.

I don't even know whats going on in here anymore.

In this weird halo restaurant analogy, I'd say its more like a table service restaurant trying to copy the fast-food restaurant's style because its beating it sales-wise.. because this poor poor table service restaurant is only in second place out of the millions of other restaurants. It's a real tragedy that this restaurant is only making millions of dollars profit and occupying the unfortunate spot of 2nd place.

Now we just have two fast-food restaurants, and the other one is still better.

rofl - I'm right there with you. :)

Analogies are generally there to make complicated subjects easier to understand, or to put something in a context that makes a particular perspective easier to see.

We've gotten pretty damned far from that goal. ;)

Bottom line - some people who loved Halo in the past (BUT NOT THE SAME HALO - DON'T LUMP THOSE HALO 2 FOLKS IN WITH HALO 3, OR REACH OH GAWD) aren't happy with Halo 4. Some people (not always the same people as in the last sentence) think Halo 4 is much more like the Call of Duty series than any Halo that came before it - even though it's still recognizably Halo.

And some people don't care about the complaining and just enjoy playing the game. :)

I was watching my gf's cousin playing through campaign and it was a very interesting experience. He was having difficulties running and looking but he seemed to have fun. Then my gf took the controller and lols ensued.

Also lol at the Mexican voice overs. I hadn't realised that you could never change it back to English.

How does this tie-in to that prime-time game show Guy Fieri started hosting (and later cancelled), and the fact that Guy Fieri was doing something that's completely unrelated to his profession of cooking?
It involves other restaurants doing some of the legwork and Sir Richard Branson. Or at least that's what I've been told.

Interesting response from Virgin Gaming over at THC.
 
The metaphor used a diversity of foods from low-quality sources because I didn't like the final result and as a metaphor for the outsourcing. The meal has the appearance of several different meals combined in to one meal from several different sources, none of them in their own right being amazingly fine eateries. The main takeaway of the paragraph is that the food doesn't appear to have come from the kitchen of the restaurant. The fries are still in the little Burger King container, even.

I am thrilled to see people breathing life in to this fine prose through their own interpretations though. The sandbox redundancy didn't even cross my mind.

Please carry on.

Virgin Gaming provides tournaments for all skill levels.
I don't think that works that way. I can see where they were going, but any contest that involves skill invariably ends with the most skilled contestant(s) winning, right? Should have just done a called it a raffle instead of a tournament. The more games you play or the more points you get the more times your name shows up in the pot. It's actually a pretty nifty idea, but it's not a tournament.
 
We haven’t forgotten or overlooked anyone here. Sure we wanted to kick things off in a big way by including everyone, but competitions like the Infinity Challenge will not be our only form of competition. In fact, I look forward to working with EVERYONE in the Halo community to build competitions that you guys would like to see in the future.
