That was a silencer, dude.

Who needs a silencer IN SPACE? No one can hearz you shootz!


If my excitement for Halo Reunion Party was a giant balloon, consider utterly deflated at this point. Unless 343 is pulling a fast one and saving a "lawlz Halo 1 multi be in d00dz" announcement for PAX or some shit, I'm not buying.

I figuered there was no online multiplayer from the beginning of um.. whatever the rumors started. My expectations are far more realistic than all of yours! Anyways, it does look intriguing.

Why did you figure that? I never once imagined this decision would be made. What a waste of time. I can play Halo 1 campaign whenever the hell I want.

It's not a remake but it is. It's not a port but it is. I can honestly say that I was floored by it. Damm impressive.

I heard that copy comes with superior multiplayer and six more maps too. Steal of the decade.

I was very excited by it as well. Honestly I've always thought it would be cool to replay the first game with better graphics. Only WTF moment for me was Chief's armor. It looks... off. His armor combo in Reach looked much better than this. I dunno... It just looks blocky and fake. But everything else, hell yeah can't wait. Honestly I think I'm more excited for CEmake than for H4. I mean... jetpacks already built into the Mk. VI? Isn't that kinda just like a big middle finger to the fans? I'm gonna say even bigger than the Reach retcons. "Yeah, you've had a jetpack in your armor since Halo 2, we just never let you use it." >:( Thanks a lot.

Of course you've used it. How else could a half a ton spartan perform such a floaty jump?

Yep, no Halo 1 multiplayer confirmed. It's a Halo 1 inspired map pack of 7 maps for Reach.


Oh. Holy. Fuck.

That's it.

Done.

It's like someone said, "Hey, guys. How about we take the most un-Halo like game ever and shatter everyone's memories of late night LANs and make XBC look like a godsend?"

"You mean put bloom and Armor Abilities in H:CE?"

"Yeah! And we'll replace the pistol everyone's wanted since H2 with the Reach one!"

"Hell yeah! Oh, and as a final 'fuck you very much,' we'll wrap that around the campaign remake to remind everyone of just how awesome it coulda been!"

"Oh, we're gonna make thousands of dollars off of this!"

I'm pretty sure that's exactly how the pitch went down.

Not sure if this is new information, but maybe there's still hope?

Joystiq.com

Unlike the dual-engine campaign mode, Anniversary's multiplayer component -- created with help from longtime Halo contributor Certain Affinity -- is rendered entirely using the Halo: Reach engine. The multiplayer component will still be separate from Reach, however. Those playing multiplayer via Anniversary will be restricted to the seven remastered traditional Halo: CE maps (including one campaign level converted into a Firefight map). In other words, your friends playing Reach will see that you're logged into CE. That said, Anniversary will also include a voucher to download the maps directly into Halo: Reach

But what about the important question? If the multiplayer utilizes the Reach engine, where does that leave the original Halo weapons? What about the Master Chief's famous engine of death, the pistol? For that matter, what if I don't want jet packs sullying my newly remastered memories?

343 Industries' Frank O' Connor wouldn't say directly whether or not the original weapons will appear in multiplayer, though he did say that the company has every intent to "respect the classic experience" and that matchmaking can be used to facilitate that. He added that we can expect more info on that front at PAX Prime later this year.

You can bet we'll be keeping our ears open come August.

A Reach mod doesn't really cut it.

Scroll down until you get to Team Classic
Decidedly NOT Halo 1 or anything even remotely resembling it. Not even close.

If you "respect the classic experience," you give players the opportunity to play it. You don't do this.
