Adding you now, my mic is at my brothers at the moment, so I'm in a party to stop people talking to me, doon't join in the party until my brother returns the mic in a bit At the volume my tv is at you'd burst my eardrums

Well computron nothing like lag spikes and random disappearing AA's to screw you over in a BTB match

this thread moves way to fucking fast



that is all
But it's not likely you're missing much of consequence. We moan and complain and go off-topic, and if Frankie says something important the English Halo Blog will grab it anyhow :)

So apparently I'm pretty good at impersonating a vorcha from Mass Effect. I know this because I ended up reciting the entirety of the children's book "Go the fuck to sleep" using a vorcha voice for some reason. I'm not even drunk.

Supposed to be once per 24 hour period, but sometimes I get it twice or even 3 times.

Also random useless factoid: the Super Jackpot is actually available in all lists, it's just that the designated list has the heaviest weighting for it.
Yeah, I have got it multiple times in a day, but usually its because it glitched and didn't show up in the after credits screen but my credits still went up. I got it today in one match of multi-team, yay!

So I popped in Gears 3 for the first time in forever and I remembered that they did this same exact thing with the weapon skins.

Hopefully none of the ones in H4 are animated and over the top...

Halo 4 E3 prediction: Elites have been taken out of multiplayer and replaced with Prometheans.

You know what would be sweet? For custom games, press a button and players in the party get sorted into teams by TruSkill. Specify how many teams you want to divide by and go.

A classic skin would be awesome! Do you want the same 'old' graphics for them?
It'd probably look nicer with updated graphics. The reason I'm hoping is because I don't like the current design of the BR. Maybe I'll grow to like it as I play with the gun, but as of right now...

I like the idea, though it would need to find the right rankings to use, since TrueSkill is playlist-specific. My skills in BTB are a wee different than Snipers. Still, it would be a grand feature.

Really hope it's just Spartans in MP. There are enough variables at play as it is.
I second this, Elites in MP where fine they ultimately appear to came from the attempts at getting Invasion into titles since Halo 2.

However since its all Wargames aboard the UNSC Infinity i see no reason for anything but spartans and i would prefer it like that

Yeah, going into MM in a full party is really cool cuz Truskill really helps make the teams close. Awesome idea.

1. Halo 4 gets announced: HYYYYYPEEEEEEEEEEE
2. First Look/Screenshots: BR IS BACK OH MY GOD GRAPHICS NO BLOOM NO ARMOR LOCK YES. FASTER GAMEPLAY!
3. SPARTAN OOOOOPPPPSSSSS

And that about was the peak for Halo 4 marketing for me. Everything else has either been disappointing, or going in what I feel is the wrong direction.

Sprint
AA's
Modifications
Loadouts
Unlocks
Ordnance
Ugly armor


A lot of these things could potentially be great additions/not that bad. But I don't like the direction. Lot of my hype has been dying.

Yeah, that'd be sweet. So Halo Anniversary-esque stuff?
Some of that stuff felt like a redesign to me, pretty damn awesome redesigns in a lot of cases to be fair, but with classic skins I think they should keep the original design 100% just with shiny new graphics. (if they did them, Im not personally really bothered about that stuff though!)

Yeah seems like the first info blowout we got through Game Informer just killed my hopes for the game, hopefully E3 finally shows more than 3 seconds of gameplay at a time so I can get excited lol. :p

My hype has been pretty dead since the music.

That and I've been playing some other games(in between the addiction of Minecraft) to see what I would have done instead, and it's reversing my nostalgia for those games. I would still have Mass Effect, SW:BF2, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Borderlands remain largely the same; but some other games like Halo 1, Mass Effect 2/3, Syndicate, Reach, and ODST are making me dislike them more. There's so much potential that simply fell short or completely flat. Makes me cry for the future of the industry since many of them are relatively new games.

It is odd, this lack of hype I'm feeling. A lot of the revealed info thus far has just felt... flat and uninspiring. I'm sure there'll be something at E3 that BLOWS ME AWAY though. Hoping.

I remember seeing the theatre feature in Halo 3 and thinking it was absolute magic. Will there be something of this magnitude in Halo 4?
