So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

I went on Wikipedia and read Halo 2's plot & summary then went on to read Halo 3's. I already know about the first one from a friend telling me about it a long time ago. Sounds like sort of a let down to me. I mean yeah the halos were built to destroy the huge swarm of alien parasitic monster things.. and I dunno, when I read the summary for Halo 3 I was like "That's it?" I mean sure the first Halo had a great story, 2 was alright, but 3 seems like they kinda gave up I guess. I would've liked to have seen a big plot twist or something, but whatever. Not like I ever played them, but I'm just saying storyline wise. I already know the gameplay sucks Anything on console does.

i beg to differ. I think Halo is one of the best storylines and most immersive fps game franchises ever created. I just read the Halo3 plot and it sounds pretty good, however i would have liked to have a massive epic battle at the end with a bunch of other spartans against hordes of covenant, like "300" but 2000 years later.

i just wish it would hurry the **** up and get onto PC so i can enjoy it in its fullest splendor.

i will admit, i just finished playing Halo1's campaign again. i dunno, you beat Fear, Doom3, Quake4 once and thats it, no replay value IMO, Halo (not Halo2) can keep me occupied for hours, even though ive beaten it many times its still fun.

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

Oh I can agree that Halo has a great storyline, but the 3rd one felt more as a let down compared to the others. No huge plot twist to make things interesting and that could ruin anyone's day by hearing about it.

It's not like Harry Potter and Snape killing Dumble doofus.

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

i like halo3... but its definitely not as good as its popularity. the only reason why everyone likes it is similar to the reason why a lot of people love FF7... it was the first FPS game they played on the new console (generalized). im no exception and thats why i LIKE halo 3... but its not causing me to run out and buy a 360 right now... i'll just play with friends until christmas

the game is solid though... and most people love it for its multiplayer. i know people who are amazing at halo and never played the single player campaign in any of them. compared to PC tho... halo is kinda drowned out as same old same old. its nothing new to the genre... its just one of the only FPS for consoles that doesn't suck.

.
Don't forget the fact that its a multiplayer game... where you can play with a ton of your friends, online or offline, that has almost no learning curve, and many other features that just make it more interesting to play over long periods of time...

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

yeah.. but what i am trying to get at is...

for consoles, the transition from goldeneye to halo was a HUGE leap.

for PC gaming, there has been dozens of similar if not better games prior to halo's release.

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

I've been playing H3 with my buddies who have it. In fact, I watched one of them beat it the other day.

**SPOILER ALERT BELOW**

The ENTIRE time through the last levels after Master Chief picked up Cortana I just KNEW that she was going to turn out to be bugged or a counterfeit or something, but she...didn't. It does seem lke there a few things they could have done to improve the story overall, and the lack of a real boss fight at the end was kinda disappointing.

**END SPOILER ALERT**

The gameplay is outstanding though. It feels remarkably similar to H2 but has fixed a few things, movement and controls are noticeably smoother and the new weapons are sweet.

We made a new game type called Hammertime where we have gravity reduced by 25%, damage reduced to 500, and ONLY gravity hammers with infinite ammo. It was freaking awesome.

It made me cry when Master Chief died at the end. I loved him.

pretty much full circle. Halo1 you awaken from hibernation, halo3 you hibernate at the end.

my buddy loves it. today he was like "dude, you remember the preview of halo2 where it looked all crazy with all that **** going on, and then we got it and it wasnt anything like that, it was more boring than halo1? well, this makes that preview look weak"

Actually, I haven't played any of them. I was just guessing that he dies in the end. Shows you how good the plot is.

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

I beat it, in about seven hours on normal... What. The. ****. Dammit bungie, come on.


*SPOILER WARNING*


No Masterchief doesn't die, but the Arbeter or whatever his name is does..... I can sum it up real easy. No real plot twists.... Halo1 : Stop the firing of the ring Halo2 : Find out that there are more rings. Halo3 : Stop the firing of the rings, then fire a ring then teleport out and get your *** stuck in space. The end

*End Spoiler Warning*


For crying out loud, Halo 2 took longer to beat and the only "boss" in Halo was easier than anything in the other Halo's combined.... Dammit.

Atleast for now, even though there are tons of kids playing, my RB6 skills has all but allowed me to master Halo, since it's more of a spray and pray thing, and fortunately I haven't caught any hackers yet that cheat to rank up.... I'm just waiting on it.

Hacking will happen eventually and Bungie will do nothing about it besides make occasional stings just to show "they care" and they "are doing something to fix the problem" which we all know is horse ****.

How does one "hack" on a console game?

It's actually modding. Some people call it hacking, but they mod their xbox.

what is it they do to the xbox itself that gives you an advantage in the game?

Re: So... Halo hype. *Spoiler warning?*

Create modded files and programs I believe is what it does. For example: I was in a game where they made you spawn in the middle of the sky and before you even touched the ground you had been shot in the head. The entire game was just one huge mod, and there was litteraly a mountain of bodies on the ground under that spawn point. The spawn point was modded, the modders were moving almost too fast to be seen and whenever they pull the trigger they get a one shot one kill head shot with any weapon. They didn't even have to look at you. That's just one example.

Another is moving at super speed and guaranteed head shot with all the BR rounds which results in instant kill. While super bouncing.

dam 7 hours?

i think the first go-around Halo2 took me 3.5 hours on Heroic.

7 Hours is about how long it takes me to beat Halo1 each go-around.

i dont think i would mind 7 hours for Halo3. Halo2 pissed me off, bought it at 10AM when best buy opened, by 2:30ish i was already done, and gotta figure in a half hour or whatever it took me to eat lunch.

however after playing PC games Halo's single-player campaign is pretty short. Prey took me about a week and a half to run through, Quake4 is pretty long maybe takes me 2 weeks to beat it playing a few hours after work, Doom3 is a little shorter though.
