  1. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Popular streamers' opinions about Halo are worth less than nothing.
  2. I know it probably wasn't fun for the other streamers, but watching Snipedown take a dump on them was hilarious. That was pretty much a pub stomping session. Whoever thought it was okay to put him in that thing should be reprimanded. Lol.
  3. The only digital version you'll be able to buy is the remake on the 360, but it's not backwards compatible on the Xbox One. I'm pretty sure it's not sold on PC digital stores anymore. You can probably still track down a physical copy of the remake or original version though.
  4. Do we count all the Star Wars video games that have been made? Because there's quite a few that are better than Alien: Isolation. But also, Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay exists and is still amazing all these years later.
  5. I agree with this for the most part. Getting rid of it entirely without making the game feel like shit would be difficult. The closest any shooter on console has ever gotten to feeling truly great without aim assist is the Titanfall franchise.
  6. Larry doesn't know what a contraction is. Give him a break.
  7. I expect next gen graphics to be a main talking and discussion point on twitter, youtube, waypoint, etc. I don't expect it to be one here. But it is, which is why I said the reaction here has been backwards to what this forum usually gives a shit about. Or at least, that is what I meant. Satisfied?
  8. It's definitely the money. They want every single penny from Halo's sales. I doubt embarrassment has much to do with it.
  9. Lol. What? How the hell did you get that from my post?
  10. It hasn't. But at this rate, it very well might.
  11. I'm being dead serious when I say I'll take blocky simple geometry. Maybe then my grenades won't bounce off tiny random pieces of geometry into the opposite direction I intended because 343 wanted to blow me away with immersion. Maybe I'm just old but I do remember when complex geometry was actually a complaint on this forum. When their opinions are trash to begin with, I don't give a damn how many viewers they average. MCC's first impression was pretty solid. Then it was released a broken mess.
  12. Posts like these are just bizarre. The reaction to Infinite here has been so weird and backwards. The first thing is streamers. And this could have applied years ago as well. Stop bringing up popular streamers and their thoughts on Halo. Whether it's Summit, Shroud, or whoever else. They don't fucking matter because they're not gonna be playing the game a week after release. Halo is not at the top anymore and it never will be again, so top streamers won't give a shit about it in the long term. I also guarantee you that streamers don't know shit about what makes Halo great. Summit already said himself that he wants Infinite to play like Halo 5. Y'all better hope to god 343 doesn't give a shit about their opinions the way some of you do or Halo will actually get worse. And no, it's not impossible for Halo to become worse than it is right now. The second is the graphics. When did this forum become ridden with casuals? Seriously? That's not elitism either. I'm just confused as to why the graphics have been leading the discussion HERE of all places. The only part of the graphics we should care about are the parts that affect visual feedback for the player. Whether it looks last gen, this gen, next gen, or whatever, it doesn't matter. Or at least it shouldn't to people on this forum. Oh no, the lighting looks flat. How tragic. Third. The delay. Tell me something. Do you want another MCC circa 2014? Would you rather the game be released this year in a broken state? Because chances are the graphics is not the reason why it was delayed. Games don't get delayed because the lighting looks flat. They get delayed because of technical issues. Hell, a lot of games still don't get delayed even when there's technical issues. MCC should have never released in 2014. It should have been delayed by at least a year, probably more to be honest. So, let's not act like this delay is the worst. The worst would be if Infinite released like MCC did. I'm not sure this franchise can survive another release like that one, especially for a new title and not a collection of older ones. Not only that, but a delay means a greater possibility of a beta. My ultimate point is to lay off the drugs, guys. It's bad for you.
  13. I like open world games. I just don't play a lot of them. However, I'm a huge fan of semi-open world games like Deus Ex and Metro Exodus. That middle ground between hand crafted linearity and open world simulation. It's a pretty good balance.
  14. Skill gaps tend to be a distant second to popularity for why any game becomes an esport. Poor Shadowrun.
