Does it physically pain you that the 360 is getting a freakin' fantastic exclusive?

#153 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9510 posts) -
Cows, you have 41 days to save for a 360 and XBL subscription.RR360DD
if they didnt do that for Halo 3, ODST, Reach or Halo Remake, why would they now?

Such a tragedy. It was actually a really good game.

Getting a 360 soon, and this might be the first game I'll get for it. :)

I think O'Conner said only one map wouldbe remade. Valhalla is it.

Halo 3 and Gears of War were the first 360 games I ever played on my new 360 years ago. Now Halo is back and it feels good!

If ODST got a 9 this could get an 11.
#165 Posted by Heirren (16542 posts) -
My hype is low, mostly because I'm far more excited to get wiiu. This will probably be the first halo game I don't buy on launch day.

Nah, it changed too many things, likely that the reviewer will dislike one of the changes, 9.5 max.

Na. Supposedly they're going for the feel of the first few games--especially visually. The 10 will depend on whether or not the storytelling is well done. ....or it can flop majorly.

There are going to be plenty of people that don't like what they did to the MP. It will lose points on some sites for that.

That's disappointing, it should have been Beaver Creek. Favourite Halo/Halo 2 map.

What did they do? I prefer to stay spoiler free mostly, for games that I really enjoy. Halo3 was more balanced than Reach.

What's the difference between the Pretorian (or w/e) weapons and the convenant weapons. Aesthetically they look amazing, but from a gameplay POV they look like re-skinned convenent/human weps.

I'm sure they'll be similar with respect to balancing concerns so don't fret too much about the differences.
#191 Posted by UnrealLegend (5888 posts) -

I enjoyed Halo 3 and Reach, but I'm in no rush to get this. So my hype is A-AA. (I'm sure it will score at least a 9.0 here though).

Good map, but not the best. The snow map from Halo3 was also pretty epic if you were going 8vs8 with people that knew what they were doing. Gosh, now that I think about it, Reach is incredibly boring to look at compared to past games in the series. It's still a good game, but that green/grey.......fck that game needs some more variety.
#193 Posted by jamejame (10474 posts) -

[QUOTE="jamejame"]

Anyone else pretty disappointed in the Flood redesign? They look like Resident Evil zombies now, not human body parts repurposed for an alien hivemind.

Thefatness16

It's just for multiplayer. The reason they aren't weirdly designed is to keep the hitboxes the same.

That's kind of logical, but I'm curious as to what they'll do when they return the Flood to the series in Halo 5 or 6, because we know it'll happen.

Well I thought they would have made something unique to them, but from the trailer I saw a reskinned plasma pistol, fuel rod gun, shotgun among other things. Though they might be different in some way.

Yeah Reach has generic looking maps. The only ones I really like are Sword Base and Zealot.
#196 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

Haven- Small

Adrift- mid sized

Long Bow- mid sized

Exile- big

Complex- big

Solace- mid sized

Ragnorak(Valhalla remake)- mid to big

They said there will be ten maps and so far we know of 7. I wonder if the forge maps count, since there is supposed to be 3 different versions. I'm hoping they will be separate, so there would be ten non forge maps in rotation.

Some of them do have some unique effect though.

The Light Rifle does more damage when zoomed in.

The Scatter Shot bullets ricochet.

The Incineration cannon drops cluster bombs.

So what will everybody do first with Halo 4? Campaign? War Games? I think I'll first jump into campaign with some friends and go to multiplayer later on.
