    343 is doing an update this week or next to improve the input according to active a halo streamer. He got a DM from a 343 employer

    That's great, but only half the problem. Aim assist on controllers is massive and needs to be toned down. I guess we'll see how the MKB vs. controller dynamic changes with the update but as it stands, it needs nerfing.

    Go play it on an XBox one. Other then the occasional lag which is consistent with every other game I have. I think this has been the most successful “launch” including the initial TU and Reach. 

    I know you mean well, but telling someone who bought a PC game to go play the same thing on Xbox really sheds light on how shitty the situation is. I shouldn't have to go somewhere else to get the optimal experience (literally somewhere else because my console is in a different city). How can I trust 343 to launch Infinite on PC next year if they can't even nail down mouse aiming in this? There is so much reference material for them to work with that it's really unacceptable for it to launch in this state. It's no 2014 MCC, but can you imagine this being the first Halo you've played since 2 on Vista or CE 18 years ago? It's such a bad first impression in my opinion that there really is no reason for me not to go back to playing much higher quality experiences like Overwatch, CSGO, or RS: Siege (regardless of what you think of these games' competitive merits, at least they're consistent and stable). Again, I'm not taking a sleight at you or anything, just furthering my point with your friendly suggestion.

  3. I've been trying to play Reach on M+KB for the past week to try to accomodate to the weird way it feels. I'm at my fucking wit's end. Somehow this is the only FPS on PC that feels absolutely sluggish and it doesn't help that everyone who uses controllers has a crazy advantage in midrange battles. My experience is worsened by constant in-game freezes, massive frame drops and significant screen tearing on even mid-settings. I have a higher-end gaming PC, this kind of stuff shouldn't be happening. I thought this shit was publicly tested, what the fuck 343? I really do want to enjoy this game but it's torture to play.

  4. Really not getting the recent surge in love for Halo: Reach, campaign specifically. It was short, had pretty lackluster setpieces, and barely capitalized on Noble Team as characters. It wasn't bad but it was pretty boring compared to even ODST (which I really liked but a lot of people shit on it). Maybe it's just a generation that grew up playing it that's now engaging in the community and waxing poetic about it? IDK I remember a lot of people not liking Reach when it came out.

  5. Story, gameplay, level design?

     

    All of the above?

    Yeah. Just experiencing the sharp decrease in quality from the OG trilogy to 5 is so jarring. Really puts into perspective how far we've fallen. There's still a lot to love about the series though, and the prospect of Halo 3 becoming backwards compatible makes me really excited.

  6. >double down on Master Chief focus

    That's cool and all, but Blue Team and Osiris should've been likable characters to those who haven't read the books with interesting stories in the first place. If Halo's only interesting character is the Chief, then this franchise will not make it to 30 years like Microsoft has desired.

    Sorry, negged by accident cuz the ad loaded and shifted the entire page

  7. I've said it before: Halo cooperative stealth action spin-off based on the Headhunters.

     

    :walshy:

    someone please make fan art of this. if I can't have the game, at least let me live the fantasy

     

    Edit: oh shit, I could just watch headhunters. B R B

     

    Edit 2: Headhunters is almost exactly what I want in a stealth Halo game, flashbangs, EMPs, tactical vision, coop takedowns, active camo, the ability to shoot grenades to make them explode prematurely, IT'S ALL HERE. Just wish the two characters were a bit less edgelordy.
