Coco, if I complete any coop mission on Legendary will I still get "Standard Operating Brocedure". I'm also hoping that I won't have to go through the game on Normal, Heroic, and then Legendary in order to get the campaign completion achievements.

Some games still don't stack achievements, it's so frustrating.

I asked Test and they said yes, it stacks. You don't have to replay for each.

Bro, you don't enjoy Halo 1 enough to play it through a few times? What is this I don't even.

Why would I ever want to play on Normal? Heroic or Legendary alone, always on Legendary in Coop.

Yup.

Sometimes though it's handy to play on the lower difficulties if you want to go sightseeing. =)

The reviews for this game have been pretty dumb. One review I read complained that 343 should have updated the campaign by adding more modern stuff like boosting, changing weapons with an ally, boarding, dual wielding, etc. and then later in the same review complained that the multiplayer was a much different experience than the original H:CE. It's been surprising to see reviews complain that they should have added more elements from the current games to the HA single player campaign. If stuff like boarding, destructible vehicles and dual wielding really make a big difference on how you feel about the quality of a game, you're an idiot. Thank you Microsoft for at least not messing with the campaign (beside sniper reticule?).

Maybe I'm just crazy. Nobody else seems to care about it. Of course, I'm willing to bet that the majority of the people on NeoGAF telling me I'm crazy have played about 1% of the OG Halo that I have. I find it much harder to snipe in 2x now, and that used to be one of my favorite things to do. ?\(?_o)/?

Double post. For the record, the multiplayer in this game is fuckawesome. It's amazing what an across-the-board enjoyable set of maps, the removal of armor abilities from most gametypes, and an M6Q can do for things. I just want them to tweak the jump height (it's a little heavy - you can't even hop on top of the tombstones in Hang Em half of the time). I went into this expecting to be wowed by the campaign updates and underwhelmed by the multiplayer, but based on last night, the opposite is happening.

Sucks about the reticle, sorry 'Cuse. I'm told that's something that we wanted to fix but didn't have time to. If it's any consolation, it actually fires exactly the same, it's just the HUD skin that's different.

And it sounds like MP is feeling good for a lot of people, I'm ready to get into it myself tonight.

Thanks for the clarification, Cocop. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

As for multiplayer, yup, it feels pretty good.

Also, I find it very interesting that you noticed the Sniper reticle which 99/100 people wouldn't notice, but you didn't see the Ascendant Justice easter egg that's out in the open and plain as day. ;)

Uh-oh, time to go hunting... What immediately comes to mind is the board where the flyer for the lost calico cat answering to Jonesy used to be. It'd be sweet if there were a marine sergeant with Ivan's visage and unique team leadership style.

If there was a commanding officer with Ivan's "unique" leadership style, I believe the events of Halo would've plaid out far differently.

I have to say, I think anytime I make a passing joke at Ivan lately, I misspell something. First with the "woundn't" and then with the "plaid".

Hell, for old times sake lets throw in an "oppinion" while we're at it.

I noticed the sniper reticule immediately as well. However, I prefer the new one. Seems to make me better at sniping. :/ Go figure.

Loving the game so far, but it does still have some bugs that I hope to see worked out for Halo 4. -Music seems to skip when transitioning to a cutscene. -Voice work isn't always synced with the characters during said cutscenes. -The "Low Ammo" text is not as noticeable anymore as it seems to use a darker blue color. -Framerate issues. Not game breaking, but still noticeable. Was this to stay true to the original, or perhaps that you have both graphic engines running at once? (Personal thing) -Am I the only one that thinks Sgt Johnson look weird? On the bright side... +Love the use of colors +Love the new texture work and environment updates I watched GameTrailer's Retrospective of the Halo series before playing this game and I'm officially hyped after seeing the work that was put into this.

This is probably my favorite Johnson of all the Halo games. :P Minus the weight issues that all the characters seem to have...
