Does it come out on PC at the same time?

HickMan Nov 3rd, 2004 09:04 PM

DEFINETLY NOT

jin Nov 3rd, 2004 09:21 PM

I played it a little while ago on an 8-player Xbox LAN, and it really is pretty awesome. ;D

Hi-jacking vehicles is great fun, especially taking down tanks. ;>

And duel wielding is awesome. :D

The plasma sword thing makes matches a little uneven though, especially if its used as a spawn weapon. ;o

HickMan Nov 3rd, 2004 09:23 PM

I bet. I'm too cool and sexy to get killed by a weinie lightsabre ;(

Schimid Nov 3rd, 2004 10:50 PM

halo is overrated :o

HickMan Nov 3rd, 2004 10:59 PM

No doubt :o. But it's still the best damn first person shooter since...well..a while ;(. I think I like Halo more then most people (excluding microsoft fayguts) because I'm big into SHOOTING STUFF AND LOOKING TOUGH.

Schimid Nov 3rd, 2004 11:05 PM

I thought it was good, outstanding even, but it was just because I feel it was the first game to get squad-based shooting down pat. Rainbow Six did it too, but it was too complicated.

Halo 2 looks like it'll make better on it. My big thing is, I always want extras and unlockables in games. Halo had none of that and I was a little disappointed.

Still, it's a good thing that the reason people kept going back to play it is because the levels themselves are damn fun, not because they wanna unlock another Art Gallery.

My friedn already paid off his copy and he is getting it the day it comes out. Fuck Halo 2! November is the month of ESPN College Hoops 2K5 Baaayyy-Beeee!

jin Nov 4th, 2004 07:30 AM

Actually, im not much of a Halo fan- i found the first really dull and kind of ugly and slow. ;o

The second one seems similar at first, but then you notice all the little details and once everyone gets accustomed to it, it becomes a lot of fun. ;D

Here is where i describe the gameplay a little, so tune out if you consider it spoilers. :>

The gameplay is much faster, and you dont have all those little health points anymore - its just one shield/bar. ;>

You can punch a hole in the tank things armor and throw a grenade inside! It is the most satisfying video game experience ever :O

What I found strange was the vehicle damage. My ghost would get all its armor plates shot off, but as long as I retreated to until my shield regenerated, it didn't seem to mean anything. ;?

Destroyable vehicles are awesome though, and so is the turbo function. ;D

Predator mode / Plasma Sword & Grenade matches are double plusawesome. ;D

Turrets are cool, but alien technology turrets pretty much suck, as do most of the alien technology weapons. :o

Overall, it was a great gaming experience, and i really recommend it if you can get some big network games happening- playing as the alien elites and getting to customise your color scheme/ badge is totally cool. ;D

jin Nov 4th, 2004 07:33 AM

Oh yeah, what makes the plasma sword terribly irritating is the "lunge" function- you walk 6 feet or so behind a guy and your recepticle changes color and its a one hit kill; although we did manage to dodge a few times. ;D

Alxcipher Nov 4th, 2004 09:25 AM

Apparently they've reduced the power of the pistol, and also removed its scope. This will totally change the dynamics of multiplayer. The last one was just a pistol-fest. While this was good against shit players, it was hell playing against good players who'd nail you all the time, from anywhere.

Helm Nov 4th, 2004 10:06 AM

Hi Alxcipher, will you be staying?

James Nov 4th, 2004 12:44 PM

Erm, shit. Spoilers, I guess? Sorry. :/

the_dudefather Nov 4th, 2004 12:48 PM

:lol i wonder who will be annoyed by this turn of events.

Wasn't he a robot though? so how would be be killed. Mabey reprogrammed by the convent or something. Or mabey i am wrong and he wasn't a robot.

oh and btw hickman it is probably going to suck almost as hard as the first one.

the_dudefather Nov 4th, 2004 01:34 PM

hes somewhat-cyborg, as he removes his helmet at the end of halo1 (unless he is a robot who requires a helmet)

HickMan Nov 4th, 2004 01:51 PM

The first one didn't suck, you jerk ;_;

He's a cyborg. So he's human, but a hardcore human.

HickMan Nov 4th, 2004 01:51 PM

I BET METALMILITIA DIDN'T GET THAT FAR, DUDEFATHER.

MetalMilitia Nov 4th, 2004 02:13 PM

Actually i completed it but it was a long time ago. Dont really rember much apart from going through hundreds of identical rooms and getting lost : /
oh and when the flood break through the doors, that was pretty cool.

James Nov 4th, 2004 02:29 PM

Hickman PM'd me all mad. :/

I'm sorry. I said spoilers, man.

Shit, everyone's gonna be pissed at me now.

the_dudefather Nov 4th, 2004 02:40 PM

if you diddnt want spoilers dont go on t'internet AM I RIGHT?

(answer: no)

DeadKennedys Nov 4th, 2004 02:45 PM

JAMES YOU PIECE OF SHIT

If I keep telling myself you're lying, maybe I'll forget before the game comes out. :(

HickMan Nov 4th, 2004 04:06 PM

One would hope >:
