A former professional gamer shares his thoughts on Halo 5: Guardians Beta and tells what could be improved.
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 !
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.
I don't care for resolution in Halo as long as it plays well.
720p indeed is not something to gloat over, but it was just the beta. Hopefully, something will be done about it.
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.
@strangeaeon 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." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Seriously complaining about the resolution in a game thats damn near a year away from launch. What a joke.
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
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.
I personally think it's very cool!
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?
If it's overpowered, then it will probably be abused to death.
Wont be abused because of how vulnerable you are when waiting to come out of the animation.
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!
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. :)
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.
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.
All i want now are my executions and id be happy.
Don't see how the ground pound can be abused or is overpowered from the Halo 5 beta match on Truth. Takes about 3 to 4 second just to charge and about 2 seconds to move after the pound. Its too risky a move and you dead if you miss.
I don't get all the people crying over the changes. Smart scope is just a fancier animation for the scopes in previous Halos. It's still the same thing it just gives you a little more situational awareness. Plus, you're playing as a super soldier encased in the most advanced armor mankind has ever designed, they're not wearing poverty cardboard suits. Yet you're telling me you don't think he should be able to link his weapon to his HUD, jump more than 2 inches off the ground, and be able to run? Finally the spartans move and feel like super soldiers but it's balanced out. It's not like they changed to the point where it's the Crysis suit. I already know after the beta the whining is gonna get worse. I hope 343 doesn't deviate from their vision because of people that can't accept progress.
In the recent video they said that ground pound may be nerfed was in the halo fest vid.
