It's a Rorsharch test. If you didn't think it would play like Halo game before you played it, you'll think it doesn't, if you thought it would, you will think that it does.


Becareful Phreak those are fighting words.

I have the perfect analogy for this game.

 

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory being the peak of the series followed by Splinter Cell Blacklist being a close second in terms of features. Blacklist is similar, but it's still a different game. Halo 5 is this series' Blacklist.

So, this beta goes public tomorrow doesn't it? Shouldn't we organize a party so we can all be disappointed together?

1) I won't be back near my Xbone until Jan. 1st

2) No

 

Edit: That sounded harsh. To be clear, we can party up and play H1 whenever you want.

Yeah, we definitely need to do some Halo 1-2 n00b stomps for old times sake. If I don't get on tomorrow, I'll try for Tuesday, Nightshade.

That is just the loosest butthole.

Well, I'll be on tonight so whoever wants to play whatever just let me know.

Nothing stops the marketing plan. Nothing. Not even a not-fully-yet functional Master Chief Collection.

The Collector's Edition, without any major details as to what's inside, is

4 games in the beta, and not a fan thus far.

This is the best Halo mp since H1 and might even rival that, imo.

 

They've done a really good job of making every single weapon useful at points (unlike H1), even the ar are useful starting weapons, the BR and DMR and great precision mains (in comparison to the op h1 pistol or h2/h3 br); they just feel right. Grenades are back to having distance and doing real damage. I love the added mobility.

 

It feels like a faster Halo to me, which is what I expected all along. Which again goes back to I think this game will fit the narrative you've already built for it for many people.

Controls are ass. Nothing feels right. Midship remake is terrible and dark. Too many beeps and boops. Spartan Bros are insulting.

They have new maps and playlists out.

 

* I'm not sure I like how similar Empire and Eden are and Truth and Regret are. Why not spend dev time on making a more diverse set of maps? That said, Eden is the better map. Empire has horrible sight lines and the sniper in particular is not very useful on it. Regret is a better looking map than Truth, but Truth plays better. The Hydra doesn't seem like much of a power weapon, but I probably just suck with it.

* light rifle is a lot of fun

* I don't really like BR starts for this game. I think they've finally got more useful starting weapons they should embrace.

* I haven't been able to get a game of Breakout yet, but every vid I've watched of it makes me wonder why it exists. It tries to turn Halo into a round-based game like CS or tlou, which it is not (yes, I realize the irony in me saying this), and removes a lot of the diversity of environments and weapons. It's taking the arena shooter theme too far.

 

Edit: Can confirm, Breakout is bizarre.

It doesn't fit Halo, but more than that it just doesn't work. It isn't interesting in the least. Yay, let's run around on a boring map with smgs, ars, and magnums. I just don't see the point.
