Thanks for the writeup biggy, can't wait to get my hands on the game myself. The feel of the game sounds great.

Nice to see Metroid Prime's Space Pirates making a good transition to Halo as the Knights. :p

That was the only thing that any of us raised our eyebrows up at, but to be honest I couldn't tell if anyone was using it.

Good pt, were you able to notice if people were slowed down while sprinting and being shot?

No one else could (even the pros) so im suspecting it's not much of a slow down in it's current tuning.

Also holy shit 20m weapon discussion with Bravo, bestman and Walshy; can't watch right now, need sleep

Great writeup Biggy. MP sounds solid. Spartan Ops sounds better than ever. However:
One thing I noticed was that the scope (when unscoped) covered up a pretty significant portion of the screen.
This is the only thing that sounded bad. Nerfing sniper?

Mastrbiggy, I am so jealous that you played Spartan Ops already. And your impression hyped me even more for it. I hope it is playable at PAX Prime. :)

Sniper was damn pretty to use in Reach. So I am happy that they nerfed it kind of.

You can post it if you want. I'm on my phone now and waypoint takes forever to load up.
Forums went down again about 10 minutes ago :lol

The Thruster Pack is the last of the lot, and the one that took the longest to get. It allows players to vanish for a second, only to materialize a few feet ahead of (or behind, if you're backing off) where they used the Thruster. It's great for closing gaps unexpectedly and making an unpredictable dodge when a Spartan closes in for the CQC kill.
Is this right? I thought that was the Promethean only ability, and Thruster pack was... well a thruster pack.

Edit: also,

I'd like to know more about the jetpack vs. thruster pack. Looks like we've only seen the jetpack in spartan ops so far. Also, can you use the thruster pack vertically?
