Halo |OT8| A Salt on the Control Room

1 on 1 @ Fan Expo 2012 - Halo 4 Canadian Debut

Nothing really new, but you see the setup and tidbits of gameplay at Fan Expo. Why they decided to also interview two kids I have no idea. I literally shook my head as the kid wearing the COD shirt called Spartan Ops, Spec Ops......really not a good decision with the name.


"The hitboxes."

"If you're hitting him in the head, you're going to hit him in the head. It's perfect."

Lmao.

Kid wearing Call of Duty shirt AND a Fedora?

Jesus christ, is he TRYING to be the biggest douchenozzle in the world?
 
You know what would be a great Halo game? One which goes more into the direction of Quake, Unreal Tournament and other similar games. Only to a certain extend, of course, because Halo is quite a different beast than those games. Faster movement speed, higher jumps and overall agility would be better. The person who thought sprint was a good idea would get fired. Everyone would spawn with the exact same player traits at the beginning of the match and the outcome of the match is only decided by what players do in a match. You would start with a utility weapon that's good at any range, but is outclassed by other pick-up weapons in only a certain range. More (kinds of) power-ups would be on the map. You would be able to see what kind of power-up a person has in a glance. The AR would never be a starting weapon. The amount of different gametypes would be reduced to only the ones that are actually good. You would be able to flag juggle. There would be no fall damage and no stun. You wouldn't have to play gametypes on maps for which they weren't designed. The radar would only be in Free-For-All gametypes. CQC power weapons would never be put on small maps with tight corridors. Snipers wouldn't be placed on big open maps. Vehicles would have their health tied to the driver's health. The Spartan Laser would never see daylight again. Weapons wouldn't have bloom to slow down the game to a crawl. Maps wouldn't have huge flaws in them that a monkey with no eyes riding on a bike with a hat on would notice the moment it played on the map for the first time.


It would be Halo.
So basically, MLG?

It's a hard question to answer. Personally I would be perfectly happy if the game mechanics stayed the same as Halo 2 and they just introduced better graphics and new weapons, maps, and game types. But I know that wouldn't sell so I don't really have a solution.

Typical COD player. Only cares about the graphics and the guns.

A valid answer, especially with how screwy hitboxes can appear with lag in online MP. Can make one forget what offline hitboxes are like. He also probably just came out playing MP Halo 4 so I'd imagine that's what was on his mind.
 
I mean I was expecting something like:

"ALL THE NEW AWESOME MULTIPLAYER MAPS!!!"

"THE NEW AA's AND SPECIALIZATIONS AND HOW THEY REVITALIZE HALO's GAMEPLAY!"

"SPARTAN OPS. HANDS DOWN. SPARTAN OPS."

"THE RETURN OF THE BR! SO AWESOME!!!"

But no...

"The hitboxes."

That's what's going to move the units.

I apologize in advance. Horrible couple weeks at work. You guys don't deserve this.

:(

Kid probably knew about most of that stuff beforehand. Can't really experience hitboxes through trailers. It's probably just what excited him the most while playing and was the freshest thing on his mind during the interview.
 
That's my worries over. I've hated all the other Halo games when I hit someone in the head it doesn't hit them in the head. I've never seen a Headshot medal until Halo 4.
Maybe it's just his aim?

Maybe he's been playing Halo on Fisher Price internet all his life so sniping at someone's head, seeing blood, and nothing happening is a common occurrence.
 
My apartment was robbed a few years ago, and the crooks took an xbox (broken one, with the shiny new replacement left behind for some reason), all my (good) games, some electronics, a sandwich in the fridge and various odds and ends, but for some reason the fact that they took my laundry basket pissed me off the most.

I mean, I'm sure they carted out my shit in the basket, but still. I can't explain why it bugged me more than anything.

Fuckers.


It was a dream, and a good run.

*salutes*

I would kill for a Rocketeer helmet in Halo. I've got a 36" poster from that movie framed in my house. Art deco = last great modern art movement.

If I had the money to blow, I'd get one of those extremely expensive replicas too.

Typically I'd agree, but the Xbox box is organized pretty well. All your cables and your controller fit into the compartments on the bottom, and the Xbox just goes right on top. Very easy.
Cool. If it's actually good that way then I'll hang on to it--usually I toss my boxes after a year if they're not useful.

Or at least bippity bopping around.

I used to play Halo 3 on 0.7Download 0.3 Upload. Managed to still get that 50. Come to think of it I was probably one of those warriors :p

Also anyone for Halo 3? Drop me a message.
 
Listened to the HaloGaf podcast today at work. The latest one. Good as always, fellas.

Hadn't even realized that some of the music came out on IGN the other day. Thanks for that.

Anyway, it was pretty good. Keep up the good work.
