NowGamer: Halo 4 franchise director Frank O'Connor clear on differences between the most popular shooters.
Whatever you have to say to feel good, Frankie.
I miss Bungie already :(
What did Halo ever copy from COD? Halo did matchmaking before COD (Halo 2) Halo had a online ranking system before COD (Halo 2) Halo had DLC before COD (Halo 2) Halo had a COD elite kind of service before COD (Bungie.net) Halo always had a better single player than any COD game. What a weak attempt at trolling. You are only getting agrees from people who hate Halo.
im not a halo fan but you are right. halo was the 1st big multiplayer game to change gaming online. if anything cod copied halo
COD was once a good game. I remember when the first COD came out. I always thought it was much better than Halo. It felt like it took more skill rather than Halos "spray and pray" mechanic. Lanning on PC with friends and COD.....ah so fun. And saying Halo has a better single player than COD is just your opinion.... so ya. proves nothing
Halo had a online ranking system before COD (Halo 2) http://callofduty.wikia.com... ranking system. cod also had an expansion not dlc but at least extended gameplay. Halo always had a better single player than any COD game. that is your opinion
I'm not talking about COD for the PC. I'm talking about consoles. Halo 2 revolutionized online gaming on consoles and there's no denying that.
"What did Halo ever copy from COD?" Perks. Just like COD had regenerating health and limited amount of weapons to carry (2) because a certain other popular game did it. Good for Halo for doing those things you listed, but that doesn't change that they're messing with the Halo formula to do the popular thing....the Call of Duty thing.
I hope they copy good ideas, the reproduction/building off of good ideas into new work is called progress and improvement. COD4 had a lot of great gameplay ideas, which has resulted in improved FPS games. The problem is when people try and make the same game. If people had to entirely reinvent the wheel every time they made something, we'd wouldn't have any of the technological/medical/etc. advancements. Everything is built on what came before, if people didn't copy Id's idea with Doom, we wouldn't have any FPS games besides Doom.
Whatever you have to say to feel good, Troll. lol
Yeah, I think they're taking some bits off a COD too. Doesn't matter to me though. As long as the game is good.
I'm looking very much forward to the new details on Halo 4. From the looks of it 343 have taken care of business so far. Very happy for the return of Master Chief as the main character once again. Its been a good long time. I'm sure the perks will add a great amount of depth and strategy to the gameplay. As long as they are not over done like in a few other games. I can always trust Halo to deliver online and off. So I'm sure this game will be AAA quality. It would be nice if the new world returns the series to the mysterious mood and feel of Halo CE. I pray for the return of 4 player online co-op and fire fight as well. Rated E For Everyone
If they want it to be a competitive game, I say leave perks out.
Why does every game insist on trying to be COD. Halo had unique, addicting and incredibly FUN (fun - key word) multiplayer. By adding perks etc, It just ruins the game. If you want to beat something, don't copy it. Do something different and unique and exceed expectations. Why do all multiplayer games have to be about perks now?
Oh come on, please...don't lie, just admit it You guys thought "Oh COD sells so well on the 360, even though we can pull in high numbers since it's Halo lets be greedy and try to lure MORE of the COD crowd in....OH I KNOW lefts make the online more like COD so it appeals to more people" Then I saw this about the multiplayer "Multiplayer will be faster paced more visceral and intense but will keep the Halo flavour" Faster paced...you mean like how in COD, you fire a small burst and people go down like a sack of sh*t....dropping like flies because of how unbalanced and fast paced it's become As I've said before when a game I loved to death, Uncharted 2, did this for U3...it ruined it. It took away what U2 was all about, being unique from other online games and they made it like COD....kickbacks, upgradable boosters, weapon mods etc and now it's an unbalanced mess where people STILL blindfire and sprint around. Instead of the good old Uncharted 2 days (YES EVEN AFTER THE 1.5 PATCH) where it was just... Your Skill Your two boosters which didn't make much of a difference after lvl 25 Your two starters weapons EVERYONE started with....wanted an M4/shotgun....well go out there, find and earn it. I don't want this happening to Halo...same thing happened to Killzone 3 aswell (Killzone 2 was much better) Is it bad now for an online not to be like all the others out on the market. They should of focused on making it more like (and more improved) Halo 2.
So your saying that Halo is copying COD in the article in which the lead designer explicitly says "We're not copying COD". I think I believe him. The faster pace probably comes from the fact that we are playing as Spartan IV's rather than Spartan III's and Im not too worried about perks. They are probably all unlocked from the beginning to maintain Halo's legendary balance.
So is this what you do all the time when a developer defends there own game so it dosen't get backlash...you just believe them........just like that NT say that their dmc game will be good Capcom say that RE6 will be all horror Square Enix say that the FF13-2 was NOT made from left over content Look at all the stuff Bioware have said about the ME3 DLC... So I'm guessing when this sort of thing happens your the type of person to just believe the developer straight away even though all they are doing is defending their own game meaning you don't know if they're telling the truth or not. That just makes you a massive sucker at the end of the day NaughtyDog said they wern't copying COD with Uncharteds online when U3 multiplayer was first revealed then after E3 they admited that they were going after the big boys...and guess what big boy game they listed first as an example...only COD. See what I mean....don't eat up what developers tell you no matter how respected they are. All they are doing is trying to make there game look good so they don't p*ss off their hardcore fans of that certain franchise
LOL Do you actually expect them to say "we are copying CoD" or any developer for that matter?
wtf,wots the they say,if its not broken why fix it. oh,cause you think they need it >.>
Lets hope that these perks are like armour abilities from Reach and not COD like perks. Me personally, I'd rather we all just start off equally with only skill and weapons to seperate us.
Ugh, If people want perk-play, duh they go to play games with 'perks' in. No one EVER played Halo to mess around with perks. Did that ever dull it's popularity? God-no. It's taken 4 pointless filler titles in the Halo series for this to actually appear. The game people have been waiting for. ODST? Never wanted it but was given it. - Just unecessary imo. Halo Wars? - Babies first rts game. No thanks. Halo Reach? - Stop messing about with the original game's past, we want a sequel damn-it! Halo Anniversary - Generic cash-in that couldn't even include Halo 1 multiplayer mode. No, had to make it like Reach. Halo 4. It's about frickin time! No Perks thanks.
are you guys forgetting about,quake,unreal,counter strike,battlefield,medal of honor,cod1 and cod united offensive? those games is what changed online gaming and made online gaming popular
Lets just hope they do it in a way that doesn't directly impact and dominate the game play like COD's exaggerated perk system where its not even about skill anymore.
Not copying CoD verbatim, anyhow. I have faith it'll turn out decent, no matter.
Frank O'Conner has been with the Halo Franchise for a long time now, his admiration for the community and Halo Franchise as a whole is second to none within 343 Industries, I highly doubt he'd want to see such a beloved franchise of which he greatly contributed to the creation of fall by following Call of Duty...
Perhaps they will implement a classic multi-player mode? I think COD has already done that though. However, it would be good for tourny play? Or will the perks be standard?
Reading all the negative comments from people who hate whatever is popular just reminds me of how happy I am that the N4G community almost never represents the opinion of the larger gaming community.
I don't hate... Just dislike a lot of the new stuff. Takes me awhile to find a gem.
Yawn. You already know its gonna get a 9/10 so what are you all arguing about.
