Get hype!
But that ADS is cringe-worthy. They better not CoDify Halo.
I also hope they won't have a rocky launch with this one.

I'm really dissapointed with the 720p resolution . it's absolutely absymal for a firts party game !

Chanogram1410d ago

It's a freaking beta for a game coming out almost a full YEAR later. Relax. The game will be higher than 720 at launch.

Maybe you are just too used to the more recent "Betas" that aren't really betas at all, and more of a final server load test, with mostly finished game code.

XboxDD1410d ago

I don't care for resolution in Halo as long as it plays well.

micx1410d ago

720p indeed is not something to gloat over, but it was just the beta. Hopefully, something will be done about it.

Festano1410d ago

At the E3 conference spoke of Full HD and 60 frames, although I believe that a 900 dpi me look good. The importance that the 343 do a good job.

343I has already stated the final game will be 1080/60 a YEAR from now. Stop being a troll. I welcome ADS and other changes, its time Halo caught up with the times.

I don't think they have confirmed resolution yet. But they did say resolution wasn't final for the game.

"So, for the beta, we're going to be coming out at 720p and 60fps. That's not the final resolution for the game. You can imagine as we go through the remainder of the project we'll be focused on polishing the visual look of the game. You can expect it will look amazing when it comes out."

Seriously complaining about the resolution in a game thats damn near a year away from launch. What a joke.

DonFreezer1409d ago

Yeah I guess you wanted Unity with it's higher resolution and sub-25 fps?

I doubt this will have a rocky launch. Xbox Live might go down form strain, but Halo servers will be rocksteady :P

Elit3Nick1410d ago

it's not ADS, smart scope works exactly like the classic scope in, but with fancier looks and animations, there's no advantage to using it except for higher magnification

Ground pound should be removed IMO.

Alexious1410d ago

I personally think it's very cool!

micx1410d ago

Me too, I think it adds to the "bad-ass" factor. They just need to balance it.

"Ground & Pound Could Be Overpowered"

Overpowered or abused to death?

XboxDD1410d ago

If it's overpowered, then it will probably be abused to death.

OOMagnum1410d ago

Wont be abused because of how vulnerable you are when waiting to come out of the animation.

spicelicka1410d ago

Exactly, plus everyone has thrusters so you can easily dodge it if you're aware of your surroundings. It adds an interesting dynamic.

One hit melee from behind is technically overpowered to, but it makes you more aware, and the important thing is everyone has the ability!

WeAreLegion1410d ago

I'm sure they'll fix balancing issues. They have a freakin' year to do it. Because of how excellent the XBO and PS4 controllers are, I find it easier to get kills without auto-aim this generation. Just try it on COD:AW or KZ:SF. Of course, the "snap-to" mechanic should never have been a thing. That absolutely ruins it for me. I wish it had never been invented.

Pretty excited to try out this beta though. :)

micx1410d ago

Yeah, they should disable assissted aim for multiplayer. In singleplayer it's ok for newcomers to practice, but there's no point in having it in the competitive sphere.

Stapleface1410d ago

Absolutely agree about the auto aim. It messes me up more than anything on games where it can't be turned off. I naturally take over the aiming and end up pulling shots off of target here and there due to me wanting to take over the control and it snapping to somewhere I don't want it. NO I want to shoot the guy on the left not the right! Those type of situations are terrible. Auto aim is useless unless your thumbs don't work.

OOMagnum1410d ago

All i want now are my executions and id be happy.
