So there are now achievements for getting achievements :D

Interesting.

It's strange how much of a Halo fanatic I've become in the last month or so. I can't seem to stop playing it nowadays, whereas before I thought of it as nothing special really. My new found affection for it has come out of nowhere, and without a proper reason.

Anyway, this should be cool I guess - not that I know much about it.

The reason is, I think, that you may have just begun giving it a fair shake and are just realising how good it is. I think some people( not saying you, necessarily) went into the game already looking for reasons not to like it( as happens to highly popular franchises). I've been having some of my best gaming moments playing ODST: Firefight. That game is intense. It's amazing how different you have to play it because of the subtle tweaks Bungie made from Halo 3. "Killionaire!"...

I don't have ODST; I'm talking purely about Halo 3. I was hyped for the game months before its release in 2007 (or whenever), bought it on the first day and thought the campaign was actually pretty sweet. Then I played the online multiplayer and found it to be incredibly fun, but for some reason gave up playing it after a few months. Since then I've played it on and off, but just recently I've developed a bit of a fascination with Halo yet again, and have been playing Halo 3 (the campaign and online) most of the time when on my 360. Strangely enough, I think ODST itself and how interesting I thought the game looked - despite me not even buying it - somehow reignited my interest in Halo. One thing I've always liked about it is the universe itself, most notably the designs of many of the races and planets. I've made a real effort recently to get a grasp of the story itself and, although it's been a bit of a chore at times, it'll probably benefit me for future Halo games (and existing ones).

All of this makes me so, so excited for Halo: Reach - and we know next to nothing about that game.

I remember seeing a trailer for the Halo anime and there weren't any gunfights. It was pretty funny

that reason was probably called "Call of duty modern warfare".

LOL I was gonna say the exact same thing. I feel the same sympathy for any game coming out around the same time as MW2.

Nah, I didn't abandon Halo for COD4 - I played that for an even shorter amount of time.

This happens to me too. I'll put down the Halo for a bit, but I always come back( usually to play all of them on succession). Same for Gears, though not to as great an extent...

been into Gears 2 Horde lately - really wish they'd patch it so you could pick which wave you want to start from..most games only last the first 10 before people start quitting out. Either that or update it so you can drop in and out.

Such a good game mode let down by developement choices. Alot like ODST's lack of matchmaking in firefight
Commented on 2009-10-22 05:30:28
Yeah, the matchmaking thing is kinda annoying...

This is why making a good friends list of people into the same stuff is so important in these games. If you make a custom game and just invite people, you can play on any wave you want and any map etc... Or even just use players recently met if no friends in the game.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (16 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (17 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (17 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (19 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (20 minutes ago)
