Only becuase COD fans are split between 2 games, soon to be 3. Whats halo brought out recently for MP, feck all!

wicked3336d ago

I thought new Halo 3 maps came out with ODST?

SixZeroFour3336d ago

i guess halo fans arent split by halo 3 and halo odst...and halo 3 multiplayer disk that came with odst comes with the 3 newest (and all the previous) maps

Double Toasted3336d ago

Gears stays at 5, no, lives at 5. Its good seeing Borderlands on there, I hope it rises and stays...

SixZeroFour3336d ago

i dont think a lot of ppl know that much about borderlands...even the commercial wasnt that informative

havent played it, but heard pretty good things about it

LostCypher113336d ago

well theres no denying halo keeps them coming back for more

Double Toasted3336d ago

but I can't help but admire the whole aura of the Halo franchise, from the excitement the fans have for it onto it being so successful.

disappointing. I mean three years after the fact, and the game is still on top of the list?

Either Bungie did something right, or the players really are underage teenagers with an easy shooter. But to be honest, as much as I may look forward to the next Halo Title, I never really did care for the matchmaking when other games did it better.

SixZeroFour3336d ago

easy shooter? mind telling us (or just pm me) your gamertag (or one that you used when you did play halo, even if it was one time) so i can see your stats on halo 3? cause once you get to the 40+ lvl, its far from an easy shooter (to win) if youre whole team is composed of one man army ppl against a 4 man party that communicates

bungie did do something right with regards to its gameplay, and cause its simply a fun game to pick up and play with friends, especially since you dont need gold membership to play it...the weapons and vehicles, and equipment are very well balanced, no one can be too over powered unless they are extremely good with a specific weapon

matchmaking wise, i dont think it was that good...takes too long to get you into a lobby, and after the game, you either party up with who you just played or you have to find an entirely new game which takes a long time as i pointed out before

Whats disappointing? What other game this gen is still pulling in over ~600k UNIQUE players every 24 hours? Go ahead, name on. Clearly Bungie did something right; made one hellavu multiplayer game which is FAR from easy.

LostCypher113336d ago

i think you should give credit where credit is due, and believe Bungie did make a game with a ton of lasting appeal

StanLatMarveldotCom3336d ago

Halo 3 is not easy. Call of Duty and Battlefield are much easier and more accessible. I don't know why people think that.

LostCypher113336d ago

halo is easy to pick up and play, But much harder to master then COD


ya, whats your tag ?

lets look at your stats, easy talk is more like it !

LostCypher113336d ago

GT: Lostcypher11 if you really wanna get a tab on my stats

What I meant as an easy shooter is that, like Mranonymous said, all the way through to around 35 to 40, it's easy pickings. My problem is that when I get good enough, and I'm up there, I NEVER get good teammates, so it's not necessarily Bungie's fault or mine but that a lot of the voices I hear are cracking prepubescent boys yelling niggerniggernigger and thinking their awesome cause they teabag as opposed to good players who communicate, find that one guy is bad (not me) and quit.

On the other hand, I have a really good connection and my biggest problem with Halo3 is that 2 out of 5 games I'm dropped or lagged so bad to the point where the game ends, and I've been dead the last few minutes of the game.

I stopped playing Halo because my friends don't play it, and when I play with strangers, it doesn't take long before I get frustrated. For that matter, I might play a round or two when I finish typing this.

Also, to elaborate on the 'easy shooter', personal opinion. Not my style, especially when I tried other FPS games with/out MP. Also, for those that want to, my gamertag is the same as my tag here, but before you get too brutal, I never claimed to be a 'great' or 'best' Halo player, I just have some good days.

*Also, my kill/death ratio, before you mock me, I was pretty bad at Halo before but I don't really care or bother with making multiple gamertags to make myself feel good about it.*

**Also, needs mention, I'm surprised an article concerning Halo 3 and other 360 games and no bashing, I like the civility. Good stuff.**
