I really like Breakout. You have to know the map, the jumps, the paths, the weapon pick ups and then outwit the enemy and counter them each round.

 

It's quick and tense and a load of fun.

Breakout has made me more upset with the grenade damage than anything else. They are way too powerful.

Bu-but my immersion!

People on GAF's explanation for that sprint video is just the fucking worst. "But the people trying to kill him are bad!"

Yeah, and in a regular version of Halo he'd be forced to stay and fight. He wouldn't have a choice. It would force him to attempt to undo his mistakes and fight his way out of bad situations refining his skill and making him a better player in the process. That goes for both players, the attacker and the sprinter. What we get instead is teaching player behavior to dodge and evade combat in which you don't think you'll blow the other guy out of the water. That unless you know you're in an advantageous position you shouldn't engage. And if you think that say, shooting a guy while you have full shields and his back is turned to you is as effective at making you better at the game as actively engaging in equal combat? You're crazy.

I'm legit impressed with that sprinter. That might look like bad mechanics to you, but you can't just run around like that and not run into other people without good awareness. Dude was good at hauling ass. Deserves a medal. Probably got 10.

 

Nightshade, you are getting dangerously close to get off my lawn territory.

 

When I was a young boy, the games we played were hard and they made us get better, and the world was virtuous and good. Kids these days just shirk all responsibility and run from their troubles.

 

:)

 

But I get your point, I really do. It does change the dynamics, though I would say that you've always been able to back out of a bad confrontation unless you were way out in the middle of nowhere and good players did, thought to a lesser extent. It is different, but I'm not convinced that is a bad thing. It puts more emphasis on picking your fights, which can lead to smarter gameplay instead of who is the better headshotter.

It's fucking horrible. This franchise is officially dead and buried, but 343 also took the liberty of shitting on the grave and then jacking off on the grave stone.

"Listened to feedback from Halo 4" LOL

Edit: can we move "reclaimer saga" out of the "Halo" category on the forums? I think it should go under "Call of Duty" instead.

So everyone's going to become Floyd Mayweather essentially? That's awful almost any way you look at it.

This week in the Halo 5 Beta: We get more shitty forge maps developers think count as real maps. Hooray!

The textures are really really bland, to the point where I don't like pegasus at all (looks like a boring Empire). I hope they aren't final. I like the gameplay a lot but the map design has been rather lacking.

No. You heard "incoming 'nade spam." Because in the heat of virtual battle, it's so much harder say "grenade" or "sniper". The fucking sniper one kills me, because the word is the same length they just change the "r" to an "s" because it's 100% cooler, bro.

I won't feel COMPLETELY immersed unless there's a teabag button and the Sparbros also shout slurs that call my (or my mother's) sexuality into question.

I know most of you won't be getting this regardless, but this definitely applies to all games. He says all of the truths. I'm done preordering.
