Why does ODST get the cake from /hg/

>Worst MC in Halo. No emotion. No value. Makes DoomGuy look like a deep character

>ODSTs act like frat boys and kids with water guns. Despite ads and lore making ODST look like no BS warriors.

>Stealth element a joke. Silenced weapons dont change gameplay at all

>No multiplayer. Forge. Firefight limited. But 60 bucks

Music. Comfyness (sometimes) sure. But. Seems like a falsely advertised shallow game given a 60 buck price but only really with a 15-20$ DLC download for Halo3.

Why didnt ODST
>Punish crazy playing. You weren't chief power but somehoe can board tanks and run n gun

>Use actual stealth. Silenced guns should have had use other than tacticoolness

>More teamwork. I dont remember ODSTs just solo killing covies. There should have been 10+ marines in each fight following you and assisting. Youre humans fighting 8 foot tall beasts. Even Spartans have hard times against Brutes

>ODST style multiplayer. Totally unique to Halo.

ODST could have been much more.
>>
Brutes and Hunters should have been boss tier. 80% of your fights should have been jackals. Grunts and yes. Drones. Covenant wouldn't need brutes in every battle when a pack of grunts and/or jackals could take out a squad of marines given enough numbers.

Imagine if Brutes were legit scale. Almost twice your size. Running at you at speeds you cant outrun. Knocking over tables and climbing walls just to bash your face in. Or if Hunters were Wraith tier enemies that needed entire groups of marines or your team to take down. Covenant vehicles should have taken several minutes to take down. Not 5 seconds. Where was the fear factor. The need for tactics. Stealth. You may as well been playing a Spartan 4

Likewise, someone that enjoys Halo is going to have better judgement over what a good Halo game is than a group of people that "don't like halo"

Is Rookie like the weird alien looking crippled person that people pretend is "Beautiful" in order to pretend they too have souls.

Its like Im expecting someone to say it's a joke. A ruse. A meme. But people still complain. I dont see you hating how Johnson dies like a bitch. Or how Mirinda was cringe tier in Halo3.

Just stop. End. Finish. Be done. Complete. No more. Negative. False. Begin to stop your autism.

343 still is less Jew than current or even early bungie

Split screen and chief already confirmed in halo 6.

Bungie forced DLC. And dont say it was MS but then not use that half ass defense for 343. Either its

>MS forced bungie to release priced DLC and lock playlist and never or rarely have price cuts. Also MS saw how microtransactions are profitable and made 343 do it for cash.

Or

>Both devs just did what they wanted

Autism is real. /hg/ is beyond dumb. My god. You guys were fucking idiots before. Youre always going to think like sheep. Talk like sheep. Act like sheep

343 is better. No nostalgia. Cucking. Dumb meme out of context YouTube videos. Meme pics "muh muh ol days"will make bungie good. They got lucky. Like Chief. Lucky with no real skill. Just a magical luck of the shot. CE was unfinished. Halo2 was unfinished. Halo3 was unfinished

It's a legitimate criticism. Forge looks nowhere near good enough to be the main visual component of any game.

Forge isn't the main visual component of halo either, it's just the most popular because it's extremely flexible and fun, you can do things that you just can't get out of dev-made maps.

ive finally accepted that halo is now shit and will forever be shit as long as 343 is making it. not even being king of console fps bothers me, because that shit is gone for other reasons. halo fucking sucks now.

ive put two weeks into halo 5 multiplayer. its embarrassing, but i don't want any of that nostalgia/reddit/need to innovate bullshit. 343 fucking killed halo.

halo 6 is going to continue the trend of sprint/sparta abilities and if you think that that shit isn't whats killing halo, then your first halo was either reach or past that.

and yes i remember when halo 2 came out and everyone shit on it for being casual and too easy and so different than CE but other than dual wielding, the game was still built around guns/melee/grenades. at least in halo 3 it was hard to snipe/br.

dont feel like ranting anymore.

Don't get me wrong, 343i obviously blows as a dev and deserves pretty much all the shit they get here, but we're at the point now where we are just talking in circles. Shitting on spartan ops, 5's campaign, or unlimited sprint for the 1000th time won't change anything just like the 999th time didn't change anything. The fact of the matter is the games we have are the games we have.
Can we please just actually discuss Halo?

Does the game ever state there's only marines, or does the game just not address the obvious special forces marines you get?

So now 343 are being delusional. All I read is the next mainline games will focus on Chief (I have no problem with this at all), we're going to keep that co-op shit, and level designs from Halo 5 for Halo 6.

I find it kind of funny that Spartan Strike actually exists in the Halo universe (Under a different name) as a game that's available on the tablets aboard the Infinity.

Hey man, gotta get recruits and keep people occupied somehow

>>174254524
1st, purchase it on the windows store.

Get all the achievements. Much less time consuming than spartan assault. It's also a better campaign.

Once you've got 100%, you must obtain or borrow a cheap windows phone. Hopefully you can do this without borrowing any money. Once you have the phone, don't worry about getting it set up to a plan, you just need wifi. Download spartan strike from the Windows phone app store. It will be at a discount here since you already bought it on The windows PC store.
Many of the achievements will immidiately unlock because you already got them on PC.

>I heard about PS4’s roach problem at an independent console repair shop on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. XCubicle is a clean and well-kept business where locals drop off their broken consoles to get diagnosed and repaired. Its co-founder, Patrick Che, was listing the types of repair issues he encounters on a day-to-day basis: coins inside disc drives, 3DS mods gone wrong. That’s when he pointed to the “roach bags,” black garbage bags heaped up in the corner of the room.
>“You see those bags?” he asked. “Those are bags full of roaches. Those are all dead by now.” Che added that roach-infested PS4s are so common that XCubicle now charges a $25 “roach fee.” They get at least one each week. Other console repairmen interviewed say that at least half of the PS4s they receive are loaded with roaches.

How do we fix the roach problem in consoles?

>>
>>174286726
See, I understand people have different opinions. But I really can't understand how anyone enjoyed halo 4. It was just the worst parts of halo and CoD mixed.

The visual design for everything was ugly as fuck, the sounds were grating, most of the maps were very forgettable and didn't even have weapons on the movement was slippery, I could go on

I will hate that game to the end of my days
>>
>>174287680
It was my first Halo game. I hadn't played much in the way of shooters before I got Halo 4, but I thought the Warthog looked cool, so I decided I'd try it. For me, it was just a fun game, and I liked the art style because I didn't have anything to compare it to. When I later looked into previous games (Mainly through Red vs Blue, which I now have a unhealthy obsession with), I came to appreciate the originals more for what they were, and upon playing them, realised how different they were. Over time, I came to prefer the original art style, with the exception of the armor my character is wearing in the post you replied to.

I think a big part of my liking of it was that due to it being my first, I never experienced 343 changing everything up, as to me, it was just a really fun sci-fi shooter.

Maybe it's also because I was 14 when it first came out.

If you can get passed the ugly ass art, deafening sound design, non-existent competitive scene, dumbed down forge, awful infection, terrible campaign, and the butchered backstory, there's a pretty dumb fun game hidden underneath.

Time for some actual halo discussion.
How many of you fags would enjoy a halo game in a horror-action style centered on the first encounters with the covenant in a Republic Commando style? A gritty, graphic view of the war through the eyes of a fresh Marine, beginning with operation TREBUCHET and a few levels about the insurgency, then introducing the Covenant? Let's talk about this instead of bitching about 343/bungie.
>>
>>174324781

I honestly just want a game where the covenant are something to be actually feared, i want to think thrice about taking on an elite. I know someone else mentioned a deadspace style flood game and i would like that as well.

I was in a school and /hg/ anons were there, but mostly bias and droid for some reason, then a school shooter came in and we had to escape, and then once we escaped we played forge mode in halo reach

343 put their name on it and made it canon within the Halo story. It's like how they didn't make most of MCC, but it's still their fault.

Quit jumping to 343 VS Bungie, that's not how it works and I would argue that most of us here have likes&dislikes of both those companies.

343 put their name on Halo 2: Anniversary, your fucking point?

Man whenever there are Halo threads on /v/ though, they're glorious. They're just filled with fans that only like the stuff pre Reach. Hell most of the time their limit is 3.

inb4 calling me a 343 shill, they're worse than the OT but I still enjoy them, fuck off with your whining
>>
>>174491278
Thing is, I'd happily just relax on /v/ with my preferred Halo crowd and leave you lot alone. Thing is though, they're pretty rare and are usually pretty dead. And I like chilling with Halo fans in general but it's pretty hard when most of what they talk about is Multiplayer and the newer 343 stuff.

Also, there wasn't really any crying going on. I just prefer to be around certain people that like certain things, can more easily converse with them because we have more common ground.

There are such little Halo convo areas that are actually tolerable that I'm a little desperate as to where to find them, so in most cases this is better than most options.
>>
>>174491443
We only talk about the newer ones because the old ones have pretty much been talked to death already. What are we gonna say that hasn't been said countless times before?

And even then, usually it's a fair mix of all halo in general.

I can't stand most /v/ halo threads, it's either "everything past 3 is fucking shit" or "everything past reach is fucking shit" or sometimes even "everything past 4 is fucking shit"

I'd imagine you guys get some kind of influx of newer users to talk about things. I would have thought that would keep the topics fresh and varied.

I'm a bit more tame with my dislike of the 343 games. Like it's an odd ratio of good & bad but I'm a bit more of a campaign fag so when that's bad in a Halo game I start to lose interest in the entire game itself. I think my biggest problem with them is what they're doing with the books.

>>174491619
My favorite Halo campaign wise is probably 1 while multiplayer is in between 3 and Reach. I'm sure the multiplayer for 4 & 5 are good because form what I've seen that's where they focused more of their resources or at least hired more talented individuals to handle it compared to their story.
>>
>>174491041
I haven't even played any Halo game after Reach. I watched while a friend played 5 once and it looked like some CoD bullshit

I mostly play Halo CE or 2
>>
>>174491854
4's multiplayer is legitimately horrible. Perks, loadouts, killstreaks, killcams, no descope, armor abilities, bad customs options, bad forge, etc.

5's MP is much better and more close to classic although still different. God-tier forge and custom game browser.

Some of the new armor is OK

Most is shit

The same can be said for all of 343's art direction

Same somewhat, I still have my Xbox and love of Halo so I bought 4 because why not. I didn't even finish the campaign, I still need to finish it because of how much I was groaning through it. The cheesy dialogue and needless character aggression was so off putting. Plus it feels like 75% of the grenades are useless and the forerunner architecture felt so over done.

CE is probably my favorite when it comes to co-op.

>>174492034
There really isn't anything for me in that game if that's the case. I sadly can't test 5 because I don't own and don't want to buy an Xbone, so I'll just take your word on it.

And I've heard very good things about it's forge/custom games.

>>174492194
That really urks my brother too. The armor for the Spartans just remind me of overly tacky sci fi stuff with a mix of that MLG feeling put into it, I can't really explain why but that's just the vibe I've gotten from it. It's probably that weird texture they use for the skin suit under the armor.

Here's a question for anyone that may know the answer, 'cause I don't. How does 343 explain the armor inconsistencies in the lore? Like, in Halo Wars 2 they decided that they wanted to go with the original (an in my opinion superior) Mark 4 armor but in the movie Fall Of Reach they gave the characters these horrendous designs.

I feel like I'm being kind of knit picky, but if you're gonna go with a different art path the least you can do is stick with what you've made.
>>
>>174492607
Halo 5 has a PC version with customs and Forge if you fancy that. Custom game browser too. It's a shit port (no FOV slider without mods and mouse acceleration issues), but it's free and has controller support. You need Windows 10 though.
>>
>>174492607
Also, as a side note the CQB isn't terrible. But from what I remember they all had the same armor which is what made it unique that Halsey could distinguish every single one of them even though they look so similar.
>>
>>174492736
I have Windows 10, but the last time I tried to run it it said my computer doesn't really meet the system requirements. That sort of bugged me because all of my stuff is up to date and I'm running a GTX 1050. Plus I had to update security info just the play the damn game which took over a month, it's nice that it's free though. I'll try and check it out later when I have the time.

Canonically their armor was identical, they gave them their halo 5 helmets in that short so Normies would watch it and understand who blue team was in 5

>>174493950
Fuck that, visuals have never really been fully accurate/canon so if we can switch back to a better style let's do it ASAP

Story is the more touchy area, now we are stuck in a shitty place where they have to improve on 5's story and continue it without dropping it entirely, like they did with 4's story after it was negatively received

The main enemies you fight are skeletons, although I saw a siren once but I didn't follow it because fuck that. There are no NPC boats, only player controlled ones. Finding players to fight on land is uncommon but totally possible, if you see a boat anchored near an island there will definitely be people on there but usually they get back on their boat and run if they see you coming.

There is pistol, blunderbuss, and most recently swords for weapons. Then you have maps which you can read and show to players, a compass, lantern, 2 instruments, and a tankard for rum.

The main gameplay so far revolves around getting a map, using a sea chart to find where the map is portraying, then sailing and navigating the sea to reach that place, then exploring the island and fighting off skeletons, then digging the treasure up and bringing it aboard your ship. When you dig up the treasure you get a new map. You can sell the treasure at outposts but currently currency has no use.

So really not much to do, but it's quite charming, looks beautiful, and the sense of camradery you get with your randomly-assigned teammates by the end is very cool.
>>
>>174494197
Thank goodness. If only we could get Joseph Staten and Eric Nylund back.

>>174494330
He's no longer listed as the narrative director and an ad was posted not long ago.

You literally just google this, it's not hard.
>>
>>174494620
Staten has wrote books but won't do the games anymore I think.

Nylund offered to write halo 6 after Reed was fired, but apparently they got someone else in first.
>>
>>174494620
>He's no longer listed as the narrative director and an ad was posted not long ago.
That doesn't mean shit, and it definitely doesn't mean they fired him.
>>
>>174494568
Oh yeah I will add on a bit more.

The first session playing is definitely the best, you are literally just dropped onto a boat in the open seas with 3 other people, and it's completely up to the 4 of you all to figure out how to play, how to navigate the ship, how to work together, decide where to go, what to do when encountering other players, and so on.

In my case one of the teammates quit after about 2 minutes of being away, so it was just a trio of us sailing around and discovering stuff. Made piloting the ship more difficult, but damn if it didn't help us get acquainted and comfortable with voice chat faster.
>>
>>174494681
That's such a shame, I'm not sure how I feel about 343's decisions if they're still keeping Nylund out of the franchise. The art is a good first step but it doesn't mean much if your writing is poor.

>>174494697
I never really said it was a fact, but I do think it's implied that he's not really in that position anymore. Maybe he's in a lower writing position now or is just doing something else entirely. The fact that they're trying to hire someone else though shows that they know they need better writers.
>>
>>174494880
Well,what are they gonna do. They already had someone else by the time nylund offered.

They can't exactly just fire the other guy or take away his position, pretty sure that's illegal

Not saying they should fire the new guy, I'd say give him a chance but there's nothing wrong with giving credit where it's due. I would like a citation on Nylund offering to direct the story though. I've read his blog and he really doesn't seem that interested in working on Halo anymore.

With these things making a comeback and are now canon, there's a high chance that when the Flood return some cut Flood forms will also be making it into mainline Halo games, like the Flood Juggernaut and the three cut pure forms that didn't make it into Halo 3. I can also see a Retriever Sentinel finally being used.

Why do many people consider Halo Reach to be shit?

I'm not here to defend the game, i'm merely here just to understand your position.
For me, I thought it was a great send off with Bungie, although I do have some complaints with Halo Reach.

First off, I've never played multiplayer with any Halo game. Except for the first on PC.
So for me I'm only judging Reach on how well it did the single player, which I reckon it was a genuinely fun campaign and my complaints were minor.

The main fucking problem I had, is Noble Team. They pissed me off to no end how they all wore whatever colour armour they wanted. The only reason I can think that they would do this is because the player can customise their character, and they wouldn't want to make the player feel autistic when they're wearing red or blue armour while his entire team is wearing Sage/Army Green.
Overall, that really made Noble Team seem less apart of a military if they can wear whatever colour armour they desire.

That's the main glaring issue for me, I didn't like the new look on the Assault Rifle or the armour ability's because it makes the shitty Spartan 3 commandos feel more advanced then the Spartan 2's.

That's mostly it, I would love to hear why people really hated this game, I assume it's only the multiplayer, but I don't know, so i'd just like to hear your perspective on this.

>It broke established canon for no reason (regardless if it was book canon)
>It introduced a lot of poor game-changing gameplay mechanics, some of them permanently changed the Halo formula for the worst

Those two aspects in general, i could go more in detail but we've had this discussion way too many times. I liked Reach, i still do but it truly marked the downfall of the series.

Eh, I'd give that to 4, Reach was plenty popular.
But honestly it really doesn't matter at this point what is most responsible for putting us in the whole, all that matters is getting out of it.
>>
>>174521091
Reach isn't uniquely hated, especially in /hg/ of all places.
Halo 3, Reach, 4, and 5 all get their fair share of criticism here.

People will like what they like and dislike what they dislike. Don't worry about what others think.
>>
>>174521864
This.
And the trends are always changing in /hg/ every month or so. Shitting on Halo 3 for instance is up like 400% in the last month for instance.
>>
>>174521540
Hmm ok, I think I have I grasp on the whole ordeal.
When you mean breaking established canon, the thing I noticed was how Jun went with Halsey to that mountain base, where she and the other spartan II's got saved by Chief after Halo CE (Jun never existed before Reach, so of course he wasn't in the First Strike book, so I assumed he was killed on the way over, till a comic confirmed him to be alive). Yeah that was a glaring lore break, but judging from your tone, there's probably a lot more stuff like that.

Also yeah I imagine the armour ability's really fucked over multiplayer (which I never played)
>>174521864
Righto, yeah i'll take your word for it man. I understand where you're coming from, so yeah cheers mate.
>>
>>174522424
Technically everything in Reach that would have previously broken established lore is accounted for, but it's a lot of hoops to jump through to make sense of how it all fits in.
It's not really a problem for the people that don't read the books, but for those that do, it was a headache.

/hg/ 2.0 was generally less critical overall. We're just super grumpy now.

Download the Xbox Beta app from the microsoft store on win10, go to change gamerpic and at the top of the selection will be a "submit your own" button tha tlets you choose a pic from your PC.

the default pic needs to be something like 1080x1080 to be used but you can crop it.

Yes. I would switch to it now since a few days ago it was leaked that the NSA can secretly place a backdoor in Windows 7 and 8. MS patched it in Windows 10 only.
>>

If you have automatic updates on in Windows 7 you're fucking retarded.

That being said, under. O circumstances should W10 be your only OS. You can get it, but don't "switch to it", install it on a second drive or partician

I am 100% fine with microtransactions as long as they are just cosmetic (like titanfall 2) or don't effect much of the game, like maybe only a mode or something

I've got all the DLC as well. I don't seem to run into the same problems as people that claim they can never get the maps. That being said, I play with people that also have the DLC. Maybe that upps the chances.

Is Halo dead

and is 5 or MCC played more
>>
>>174592842
No

Yes

H5 is usually within the top 20 played Xbox one games, and when I was looking earlier today it was ahead of battlefront and Battlefield 4 which both had peaks of around 12,000 players. So it's got around there.

MCC has less, but isnt dead.

It's good atmosphere. Makes you feel like you're fighting for something.
The final screen of the game is noticeably brighter than any other time.
