Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

im upset because other than the map, they are not evolving the game whatsoever. they're slapping clever titles to their game patches, disguising them as some sort of payback to the community and to be honest, the new maps so far have been recycled existing maps, so those are nothing more than someone going into forge rearranging pieces.

 

almost five months of the game being out and nothing fundamentally has changed with this game.

Really? 

 

 

 

 

Also why should something have to fundamentally change? We're getting more content, we don't need the game to change.

If you're waiting for the game to change you're going to be disappointed.

nothings changed, feelings-wise, since halo 3.

 

i enjoy some halo 5, but it's just really frustrating to see the potential just sit there wasting time to be great.

Way better than Overgrowth/Riptide

 

Honestly not sure I've even played those maps as Halo 5 can't seem to keep my attention for very long.

Not surprising.

I assume if I want to be part of the elitist CE squad, I need to call it Combat Evolved?

You probably have, since is extremely weighted in matchmaking.

well, no, obviously it needs some more modes and playlists changes, probably some weapon rebalancing, but what you're REALLY upset about is that it's not being instantly transformed into what you think is the platonic ideal of the One True Halo, which resembles a combination of something you actually played when you were younger and something you think you played 

 

which is fine!  I get wanting that.  That's cool!  But lots of people enjoy the game and don't think it needs a drastic revision like that, and they're not stupid or brainwashed or whatever.

not stupid, correct, but most definitely misled and meanwhile us core fans get the shaft.

 

it's like vinyl vs spotify. i know i can get easy access to my fav music via spotify because its super convenient, but when i want real quality sound, i drop the needle on a vinyl and soak in all that is great about that raw sound.

 

Halo 5 is basically spotify, in its current form. It could be great, but for whatever reason it's being held back.

 

 

as for i think i played? i know i played it.

 

go play hce on mcc, its all there. sadly the connection garbage prevents me from enjoying it on a consistent basis.

No its just not surprising that you call it something that seems strange to me as our opinions on things don't seem to match often.

Been playing oddball doubles with CE Pistol starts since the update launched. This ENTIRE game makes so much more sense with this gun, the movement, the melee system, the rest of the automatics, it's like everything is falling into place. I've never had more fun in Halo 5 and all I did was change the gun and make an oddball gametype. It bugs me knowing they'll never use it as the official starting weapon.

I tend not to call it CE either but only cause I'm typically playing both Combat Evolved and Custom Edition.

"Core fans"? What the fuck does that mean. Every. Single. Person on this thread IS a core fan.

in my opinion yes. there's a lot of untapped potential that's easy fixes tocmake the game more skill demanding and competitive.

 

right now its flag football, it's not full contact just yet.
