H3 maps were incredible, with the exception of Isolation.
That's the first time i've seen that opinion. It had a bunch of good ones, a lot of bad ones and overall was weaker than Halo 2 mapwise. IMO. And Reach is weaker than any of its predecessors mapwise

I find myself reaching for razor blades every time people don't veto Hemorrhage.
Err, what we should vote then?
  • Hemorrhage is all right vehicle map but the sniper/DMR wreck vehicles too easily and the map is boring otherwise as well...
  • Spire is horrible as it is (moving the attacker base to the spire and the defender base at the river would make it better along with complete sandbox overhaul)
  • There are no words to express how bad Boneyard is
  • Boardwalk is pretty good but it lacks vehicles
  • Paradiso and Utopie are really, really horrible
  • Trident has a shitload of framerate issues and snipers
  • Renegade is just plain horrible as is Wayont
  • Mt Lam Lam is good for neutral assault
  • Abridged is all right IMO but it's rare and people don't vote it
  • Breakpoint is absolute garbage
  • Tempest (i've never seen it in BTB) is 6v6 map and too cramped for BTB
  • Highlands has too few vehicles/too many power weapons and i've never seen it in BTB.

God uncaged is my kryptonite for sure.
Uncaged: -5
Which made think up an interesting question what map would you consider to be your personal kryptonite?
When i used default controls, i dominated in The Cage/Uncaged with DMR and Jetpack (and rockets). I'm not that good in it anymore as i use Bumber Jumper.

But really, where i'm bad.. Reflection, Asylum, Pinnacle (depending on playlist, in Rumble i usually do well), Paradiso/Utopie, Breakpoint. I think.

EDIT it seems that i'm the only one to like Epitaph from Halo 3. But then it suited my playstyle in that game, i'm horrible with BR in smaller maps.

Halo 3 had good maps.

The Pit
Guardian (MLG)
Construct
Narrows (MLG)
Heretic
Blackout
Ons
Amplified

A lot of those are DLC or H2 maps, still.

Reach has 2 good maps. Zealot and MLG Countdown.

It looks like there is a motion tracker in the bottom left corner of the screen.
This was first thing that came to my mind yesterday when I saw the snow (?) and the HUD, that AOTCR area just before you go into the the last big indoor segment.


I've been avoiding touching Halo CE since the Anniversary announcement just so the Anniversary and CE-HD playthroughs feel more special.. damn the withdrawal hurts.

Watching or reading?


Backpack was too small bro, get better.

Yep, except for the maps being the worst in the series. The maps suck in Halo 3, but in Reach they are just awful.
Reading. Latest book. That dude in the pic is not Jaime. Jaime is not working at 343.

It doesn't happen in this clip, but if you stay behind the marines stand next to the escarpments waiting for you to engage the big battle, that's what I saw on the screen. And again, I'm just pointing out what came to mind, what's in that screen could be a million other things.

MLG Zealot is the good version. Also, don't forget Sanctuary. But does that count? And Redemption and even Android.

Game before on Asylum +10.

Uncaged: -5

Game after on Asylum +16.

All I heard was Invasion Breakpoint.

Is there a YouTube version?

Also, where is the music in the trailer from? It sounds oddly familiar but I cannot put my finger on it. Or maybe I'm imagining things, is it an original song created for this trailer? Edit: Question answered, thanks Hypertrooper!

Thanks for joining us! It was nice to have the Waypoint gang play with a few GAFers. Maybe we should have a few "GAF plays the community" nights to help shed our elitist stigma.
They were nice, a bit loud but nice. I think the thing that made me decide not to come back once my Xbox froze during the match was when they said "Lets take a vote, whoever wants to play BTB yell into your mic!" and then they all started screaming.

The music is from Two Steps To Hell. They do commercial music. You can hear their work in the StarTrek trailer, Mass Effect 2 launch trailer and I think LotR, too. Someone posted the track already. Wait a second... Undying Love. Homeboyd found it out.

Haha that would make sense, a friend of mine has one of their albums and he was playing it over and over. He played that song a few times! Thanks, I knew I had heard it before!

yeah it's long, repetitive and boring!
AoTCR = bad
It's full of variety and offers almost every single type of Halo option in a single level. It is highly atmospheric and has great music, you philistine.



But seriously, what's your favourite CE level? AoTCR ranks up there with one of my favourite FPS levels of all time.

I actually like the library!
seriously, I even like the first level (PoA), but not AoTCR. Didn't like it the first time, didn't like it the last time I went through CE campaign (which would be few weeks ago). I find it too long and repetitive. And no, smashing sleeping grunts' faces is not that fun after the first time :p

Really all of their music is incredible. I could sit for hours going through all of their albums (and have before).

Yea my last play through till November was the end of last month beginning of this month. Till Anniversary I'm Halo Campaign blackout for all of them. Needless to say It's so hard to hold to that. There have been times I've sit there just going hmm. Just a couple minutes won't hurt. Halo is my Crack. lol

Yeah now that I've put two and two together I actually know several of their songs. I've listened to their stuff several times since my friend introduced me to them.

It becomes more hilarious if you do a literal reading of what he's writing instead of figuring out what he meant.





edit-

v This gif was already funny, but then I noticed the guy with the hat on the bottom of the frame poking his head and it became even funnier. :lol

I won't be able to get on the internet Friday or much of the weekend after that. Y'all are going to have to catch me up to speed!
