Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

Raid on Apex 7 is super broken, able to steal the armory before hand and being able to get BEHIND the base without anyone knowing destroys the fun of the game.

You make it sound like they didn't put much thought, testing, or beta into that playlist.

 

 

Good thing they have the req system working well. Such a necessary feature for halo game types, ya?

Sure buddy. Cod being the most popular, not only game, but media/entertainment for 3 titles straight had nothing to do with it.  :huh:

Halo 3 competed very well with 3 Call of Duty games. No other Halo game could.

I see what you did there...

Lol.

 

Also, I noticed Sarah Palmer says "We didn't give them an inch", upon completing a Warzone Assault game. Does that mean the gametype's just one big game of "Just the Tip". XP

I thought I was the only one who thought of a penis joke after that line. Amazing.

Halo 3 actually topped CoD4, WaW, and MW2 for 3 years. Though the more we bring up the numbers, the more we depress ourselves. But hey, at least we have monthly REQ updates now. That's something.

Pretty sure there's a line in spartan chatter where friendlies will go "nice work with the rod!" or something when you get fuel rod kills.

 

I mean I like being complimented on my rod handling skills, but there's a time and place for everything.

This is not true. MW2 topped XBL for nov and dec of 2009. Then topped XBL for most of 2010 till Blops came out, then IT topped xbl with MW2 in 2nd.

Every week for 2010 there is a xbox live activity feed. Top 20 xbl games for every week. Take a look 

 

MW2 dominated 2010 (Reach took top for abit) then BLOPS dominated after.

I was talking about total yearly, which Halo 3 did have the #1 spot for '07, '08, and '09. Yes, the CoD games were fighting against each other, but it's still impressive regardless, especially since no other title (including future Halo games) have come close to doing.

MW2 was out for less than 2 months in 2009. It was at the top for those 2 months. You specifically said H3 topped MW2. That did not happen. My whole point here is that MW2, Blops then MW3 dominated not only the shooter genre, not only video games, but media entertainment. Halo's popularity began to decline with the release of MW2 thru 2010. It did not START at Reach. It started with cod. Why Halo fans are so loathed to admit this is  :beyond: me. 343 sure as hell did a lot of work to put Halo in the position it is in today. BUT cod was the beginning of the decline, H3 2010 numbers are not close to 2009 numbers.

You can handle my rod anytime. Fires faster, since it's upgraded. ;3 Splash damage is also larger. Of course, I'm talking about the Light of Urs, you dirty person. XP

Sniper on Basin is FUCKING STUPID. Kids camp their spawn and rape you from range because it's so damn easy to use and spawns so damn quickly.

H5 Sniper is stupid in general. It's gotten to a point where, if I just see the light from the weapon I don't even bother challenging, because I know, 10 times out of 10, I'm gonna die, because No Thumbs Thor can just kill me immediately, even if I descope him, due to its ease of use.

Yup. It's great seeing a kid go on a killing spree with snipe and thinking "yo he's got to be decent" and then he never gets the snipe again and finishes 5-25. That weapon is crazy easy. I wish I could actually pick it up.

 

Edit: just got snipe for the first time and went on a frenzy. Lol.

I never even think that anymore. When I see people get kills with the Sniper now, all I can think of, is what I did when I saw someone get kills with the H2A, or H4 BR. "Oh, great, he got that through ease of use". I don't even take the weapon seriously. It's fun to use, sure, but so damn easy.

I'm just gonna say this now, the vehicles have way too much health. Now, the reason I say this is mainly because you can't shoot people out of them properly. For some fucking reason the actual vehicles themselves have massive aim assist so you can't shoot the drivers properly. Te ghost and mongoose show this very clearly. Warthogs do too because you can never kill the actual driver or the vehicle. So he just drives back to his base gets another gunner and repeats. The vehicles with upgraded armor and just fucking nuts. I hate vehicles so much.

Ghost Ultra has to be the worst modded vehicle in Halo I've experienced, oh but I should probably hold my tongue, because 343 may add an impossibly broken Mantis variant months later...
