Sorry, but Sanctuary and The Pit are better than all of the Reach maps combined.


Edit: Waypoint now has a recent screenshot section so you don't have to upload your screenshots to your fileshare anymore.
They are just ugly, but otherwise excellent maps.

The MLG version of Sanc is WAY better imo. Hell, even COUNTDOWN didn't seem bad in MLG. No scrubs flying around corners with swords/shotty. (I'm sure your version of Sanc is best Over, they need to put that in MM ;))

The lesson hopefully learned is: just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Tomorrow night, I play some motherfucking Halo 4. All praise to the mighty Stinkles.
Mr. Multiple Hands,

Please use the sticky detonator extensively. Then report back to me.

Regards,
Dax

I agree with this.

Edit: Didn't realize we were talking MLG maps. Nevermind.



Wut

I could possibly see not liking it, but calling it awful? Get out.

Edit: See above. Sorry. Nevermind. I probably agree with you.
Well, I don't seem to remember hating it as much before the current forge version...and before jetpacks. Maybe it's more Reach's fault than anything. I loathe playing it in Reach though. The Pit remake someone did was actually pretty fun though.

MLG versions are always superior.
Also, I'd rather play an ugly good map that a good looking shit map. Reflection....

Sanctuary was a good map, but the most prominent thing I remember about it from matchmaking was the rage-inducing PP+BR combo.

Gonna resub to live for 12 months. Anyone know any good deals going on right now? Looks like I missed an opportunity on amazon.com ($35 promotion ended june 22).
Get some friends together and set up gold family pass. Way cheaper.

I'm gonna try out as many weapons as possible, that being a big one. If it's anything remotely (lol) like the pro-pipe, I'll pop in and say so.

Also planning to crouch with the Hard Light Shield just to see what happens.

Sounds like a good idea, but I have very few friends even playing on live anymore (and I'd have to hope they're up for renewal). Oh well. I'm probably going to resub today, so i didn't really give myself anytime to plan for a cheaper price. No big. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Clips through the map and you get full frontal invincibility.

You and Tunavi should bring a note pad and take notes between matches.

Also, prepare for HaloGAF Radio you two.
Hard to write with a beer in hand, but I'll do my best with my thumb and iphone notes. ;-)

That's what I would think as well, but I'm hoping it just won't let you do it.

Time remaining on memberships will credit e family pass at a 2 months = 1 month for family rate.

Worth a shot.

Solved my problem with the xbox live gold resub. Just signed up for a free month through xbox.com. That works for me, lol. Will give me some time to figure out what I want to do about the 12 month subscription at least. Thanks!
wtf

That was the worst interview video ever.

I'm embarrassed to show up in the background.
Yeesh that was bad! I'm surprised he didn't get decked a few times for some of the things he did.

I've been patiently waiting for a Halo game to explode on
You can stunt if you want and your ass will get rolled on
It feels like my DMR been hot for so long
If you thinking I'm fucking fall off my game because I quit you're so wrong


Patiently waiting to make it through all the hating
Debating whether or not you could even weather the storm.
Just lay on the table they operating to save you
Its like an angel came to you sent from the Guardians above

The guns spark when the shots go off
Its Eslim, they say its Too Much Eslim
See them laid out with their fucking tops blown off
Its Eslim, man that wasn't Too Much Eslim, they don't holla my name




I am coming at you Fracas's team.

I bet you can't. It takin you into 3rd person makes me believe that. I bet it functions like the gears shield.

I am the only one who can't sign into XBL?


Cross posting this here from the Halogaf tourney thread:

Uh, anyone having issues with XBL? Every time I go to sign in it says

"Can't connect to Xbox LIVE. Select Test Connection to troubleshoot, or try downloading your profile again."

Anyways, I did a connection test and it says all is good.. any suggestions of what may be up?
Seems not.

Plus everything that puts you in 3rd person in halo prevents crouching anyway.
Yup, which is why i don't even understand why the question was asked. The lead MP designer knew this of course id imagine he didn't want to come of as a dick by saying it in the MLG video.

Hilarious how HaloGAF jumped on him because of it.

is that a real sentence?
Must have made sense in his head.
It is the language of a Hartlepudlian.
Leave me alone I'm sick.

Ok yeah, at first I thought that last piece of art wasn't that important and the human was there for scale purposes...then I read the description. If that means what I think it means for Halo 4 then my hype just skyrocketed. Good find!

Oh, that live action commercial played before the movie as well, felt good to see the Chief on the big screen again, the rest of it was eh though. :p
Oh, really? I wanna see that on the big screen! Its funny though, I like the live action trailer until they show chief, I think that part looks like a well-done fan costume, its awkward as hell IMO.

What do they even mean about Reach? That it will use its MP engine..? Or something else? Because I guarantee they wont make Halo 2 anniversary tied to Reach if that is what they are implying.. Unless they mean art assets? In which case, they should use Halo 4's for continuities sake.

Are you like supreme leader of the defense force? He clearly didn't have an answer for the question.

EDIT: Yeah I can't login to XBL either.

Definitely a service issue.

They are talking about AA's and such being in Halo 4.

As far as H2A goes id really love it but nothing substantial yet at all regarding it all just grain of salt stuff.

Do you honestly believe the lead multiplayer designer did not know if you could crouch with one of the AA's? Of course he knew you couldnt its been a fact of halo that when in 3rd person you cannot crouch, He knew the animators did not make crouching animations for the shield he knew that if crouch and you used the shield you would stand up. Its common sense.

I thought the question was relevant, the reaction to it predictable. I believe he genuinely didn't know the answer to the question; whether it was due to the fact that it was so unimportant to gameplay or just the fact that he didn't remember what minutia took place in the build is irrelevant. A lot of people think that when you're a project lead, you should be omnipotent when it comes to the content of your project.

Yeah, he obviously knew it, that's why he said he didn't know.
