mm Halo, the game i havent played at all since i don't own an xbox
You've missed out, some of the best co-op experiences I've had was with a Halo game
Not in the MCC, can't connect for anything.
You should really try it out!
Setting aside the new abilities, 343i has actually taken Halo 5 back to its arena shooter roots by getting rid of the ordinance drops and loadouts and have placed all the power weapons in the map like Halo 2. We're looking at the classic Halo style arena MP again and that can only be good for true Halo fans.
you dont know what true classic halo gaming is about then, no true halo fan would agree with you
I'm a fan the game has to evolve.
Speak for yourself. Huge halo fan, but despised halo4 mp. 343 has clearly gotten back to Halo's roots with the arena focus (fair starts, no drops/kill streaks, map control), then they branched out a bit in terms of mobility. The most important thing is that the areas they branched in still appear to be balanced. I would have been happy if they just used halo2s formula with current gen graphics. But I'm glad they seem to have found a new formula that looks just as fun, and is still halo at it core.
Actually, "true Halo fans" would agree with him. The biggest complaints about Halo ŕ were the layouts and ordnance drops. It made it too much like CoD and not enough like Halo. I'm not sure what circles of people you are playing with, but the general consensus was that Halo 4 had bad multiplayer that was geared toward the casual crowd and not enough to the competitive crowd.
I'm a single player gamer and hardly play any MP games whatsoever. And had both Xbox and PS since the PS2 days. That said Halo 3 MP was so amazing that Halo is pretty much the only MP game I care about and that I'm looking forward to. If they can re-inject what made Halo 3 so memorable I guess I'll be in for the best FPS experience ever again once again.
Halo introduced me to multiplayer as well :)
Halo 3 was the first multiplayer game that I've played on consoles. Good times back then. :)
Halo is the only reason i wish i owned a console!
Gameplay wise I can see it working well it's just the maps I'm worried about now. That remake of midship looks huge in comparison to the original, I really hope that's not how big all the maps will be. A big part of halo's arena style roots is the size of the maps and just how well they flow from the action.
It has to be bigger cos you can move around the map quicker. Old one wouldn't work in the Halo 5 sandbox.
Remember indeed halo fans
Im excited for this! I know I'm going to get allot of hate but this looks alot like Destiny, or Destiny looks alot like this?? Idk xD its a combination of Advanced Warfare and Destiny which I'm really digging. Damn Uncharted 4 and Halo 5 next fall ♡♡ I think I'm ready!
Halo has always looked like halo. Its, destiny that gets its cues from halo. Never the other way round. Halo came before destiny.
Nope. Arena style shooters died years ago. There are plenty free ones on the PC that look and play better
LOL ok that's why you can't name them and no ones know what you're talking about.
Well I can think of one. Quake Live. Its free and feels fantastic. Does not look as good though...
You can never go wrong with halo.
I've been playing Halo for 13 years and competitively for around 8. With that said, Halo 5 seems to be going in the right direction. Halo in 2015 should not be Halo from 2004-2007. I was blown away by the reveal, they balanced like every issue that was factored in Halo 4. Watching the pro match gameplay on Truth felt like I was watching an MLG event from years ago and it was great. I think this will be the Halo that in 5 years people will say "Remember the Halo 5 days?" Haven't been this excited for Halo since Halo 3's announcement.
The changes look great to me !
