Halo General Discussion

Post by Korgis on Fri Aug 27, 2010 4:14 pm

for general halo talk

anyone here play halo 2 before the servers closed down?
cause if you did and didn't change ur gamertag since then u will unlock the visual flair in halo reach.

Very Happy

I don't think I will get halo reach for a while, maybe when it's cheaper.

ODST was dreadful i wouldn't even call it a full game. A new shit campaign and a new mode which only friends can play on and then all the maps on halo sucks for the people who fucking bought all the map packs aka me

I liked them all dont have a favourite. But found Halo 2 the hardest as far as i can remember its a long time since i played it the hardest part was the big fight at the end.

Spoiler:
Like the end of Halo 1, Halo 3 and ODST was spent driving vehicles (if i remember correctly)

There is a competition for Hao reach on the launch day in dublin for a team of 4. So if ur good at Halo and know 3 people who are also good u will b in with a chance of winning a Halo reach console and game. But u might not even b picked.

Maybe we should have a few group games of halo 3 online just to get back into it etc.

The problem with that is they changed the button configuration for reach, so any halo3 practice would not really help. lol

They should easily have an option to change the controls like Halo 3.

Yea u can change the controls to 6 different configurations but u cant change it back to the exact halo 3 configuration some will b the same but not them all as they have a new move
Spoiler:
sprint or power shield or jet pack or hologram and some thing else
and that is used by 1 button.

At first i was like wot the hell did they change the button configuration for but it doesnt take long to get used to it so its not 2 bad.

Apparently visual flair is a nameplate so not too bothered about not getting the special thing or halo2. You also get them one for halo 3 and odst i believe

Oddly, I am really looking forward to Reach - More than usual, must be all the hype on xbox live and seeing the adds on tv etc. Took tuesday morning off work to catch up on some sleep - something I never do, but fuck it anyway.

I will be picking my copy up tommorrow night around midnight and will hopefully give the campaign a quick hour before I jump onto multiplayer hopefully around 2/3 am.

Anyone interested in joining me send me a message/friend request over xbox live, t'would be good to play as a party.

Just wondering. Can the recon helmet be used by everyone on the same console or is it just by the gametag that entered the code?

Have to say really disappointed with Halo Reach online (could b because im a n00b) only played about 5 games also lost about 26500 points when i connected to xbox live. Halo 3 was my most favourite game on xbox live.

The health system worked well in campain but not online. like after a fire fight u can b completely drained of health and it takes 3 or 4 bullets and ur dead.

Halo reach was brilliant. The last mission was better then 3 and ODST combined.

Spoiler:
Was not expecting the last mission where you had to survive. Love the visor glass cracking.

the one where you shoot the big ship or the firefight sorta one?I wouldnt really call that the last mission imo the last one would be the one where you shoot the big ship at the end which was total bullshit imo halo 3's one was way better but the firefight sorta one is actually class it made the ending better for me anyways

Ok I completed mission 2 (Dying many times) and when the ending cut-scene showed up I paused the game and selected save and quit.

I was worried that it didn't save so I resumed campaign and when the loading screen showed up the message appeared that I unlocked the avatar award.

thoughts on reach
Spoiler:
halo reach shows the real depressing side of war.
unlike the other halo games their isn't a sense of accomplishment.
When noble team accomplish something some really bad seems to happen afterwards to them. Like when the 1st covenant carrier destroyed and they think it's all over until another 100 covenant ships come.
Also the way Kat died was pretty stupid.
She just gets shot in the head no dramaitc death or build up to it.
I'm also wondering what happens to Jun aswell as it's never shown whether he dies or not. Noble Six death was probably the best in my opinion. He still fights even when he is on the ground and is only stopped
when he gets stabbed. I read the fall of reach novel and i knew reach would fall but i had hoped noble team would of escaped reach
like Buck did. I aslo like tthe connection the game has to novels
like how they feature halsey for the first time in the games and
how the game connects to Halo CE by having Keyes and Cortana in it.

It took me around 12 - 15 hours (I can't remember).

It was hard but I found halo 3 to be much harder. There are 2 levels in reach are were harder then the hardest level in Halo 3 ( the 4 and last mission) but overall it was easier then 3.

Post by SilentHunter on Sun Sep 26, 2010 6:36 pm



And though we’re excited and energized by Halo: Reach’s week one performance metrics, we’re definitely not content to rest on our laurels. Hell, we don’t even have any laurels. But we have already identified a few elements of our online experience that need a wee bit of tweaking. Don’t worry, we’re already on it.

So you’re not left in the dark or caught off guard, here are some highlights from the pending October Playlist update, courtesy of Playlist paesan' Jeremiah.

Playlist Changes

* SWAT Playlist added (SWAT removed from Big Team Battle and Team Slayer)
* Campaign Matchmaking (live on 10/15 – You will be required to have earned the Grade “Corporal” to enter this Playlist)
* Team Slayer rebalanced to highlight default Slayer game variants and include new offerings
* Classic Slayer removed
* Removed “Pro” game variants from the Arena Playlist
* Removed Boardwalk from Arena Team Doubles Playlist
* Added “Return to Battlefield” volume to Space on Zealot in the Arena Playlist


Game Variants Additions

* King of the Hill (multiple Playlists, including Arena*)
* Rocket Race
* Juggernaut (Rumble Pit Playlist)
* *King of the Hill not included in Arena


General Housekeeping

* Sudden Death will be added to all Assault game variants, including Invasion
* Team Objective will now feature the map Powerhouse
* Replacing Drop Shield with Evade for King of the Hill, Territories, and Oddball
* Replacing Hologram with Evade in Oddball, Capture the Flag, Assault, and Stockpile
* Replacing the Scorpion on Hemorrhage with Wraiths (Hemorrhage Heavies variant, TBD)


It should be noted that these are some, and not all of the proposed changes we'll be making to the online experience in the weeks and months ahead. The items listed above are those of the inbound soon™ variety. We'll make some more noise about a potential second October update as soon as the details are set in stone. Suffice to say, we'll be adding some new "stuff" to keep it fresh and we've already begun to dig into some sweet user created content in search of future matchmaking hopefuls. More on that in updates to come. Stay Tuned.


Link

Also on the same link. It looks like bungie has given away that there will be added achievement that might me released sooner then we thought.



An increase of 10 achievement and add up to an extra 250 gamerscore.
