So discuss the amazing video games series here. Yanno, if you think about it, Halo 4 is the Eighth game of the series, not the Seventh (if you count the CE anniversary as one of the games). Surprised this wasn't slammed up immediately... and I swear I didn't see any Halo topics anywhere in CoT. -Skar

^I know, I was kinda thinking of putting one up, but you beat me to it, lol. Anyway I was kinda skeptical about Anniversary at first from E3, but the newer screenshots look great, not to mention the remake of Headlong.

Aside from the updates, I'm looking forward to the new Terminals. I'm also hearing rumors that the chapters released from "Glasslands" suggest that the Huragok are being recalled all across the galaxy by an unknown force. If this is true, could this mean a return of a hidden group of Forerunners?

I hope the Gauss Hog isn't overpowered, I'm just thinking that the Banshee will somehow balance it out. I hope it won't become what Hemorrhage was, with Scorpions sniping people from across the map. At least the buildings provide cover.

It's gonna take forever to get to inheritor in Reach. I just became an eclipse, but to get to nova, The amount of credits I have to get is 2.5 million. That's more than it took to get from recruit to general. Ugh. Really lovin' the title update playlist though. ~U_K~

asdf I do not recall ever hearing about that map. But it's one of my old favorites, so no complaints! I just miss Epitaph, Valhalla and Midship now, really.

I just became a Hero a few days ago... Yeah, Inheritor is looking more and more impossible. Yet I keep seeing more and more of them. And they usually have mics. And they're usually pretty rude. *sigh* Looking forward to Anniversary a whole lot, since I never owned the original game. ~|ET|~

It's amazing and IMO the best Halo. I'm stuck at Brigadier Grade II, but a lot of my friends are still Lt. Colonel, Major, Captain, and Colonel. I'm the highest ranked out of all my friends :P

Just saw the achievements for Halo CE anniversary. Some make me want to crawl up in a corner and cry. Though it should be interesting considering I haven't played it for ages. Not sure if I should play it on heroic or legendary first. Sonu, maybe we could do legendary together? It's not like there's any achievements for solo.

Oh lord... I'm thinking unlike with Reach, I'm not going to try and get every campaign achievement on my first run through... That was simply horrendous, and there's so many more here. Co-op ones are going to be especially hard for me unless we can do co-op online. Well, at least I'll have somethin' to do. :P ~|ET|~

Much less scared of legendary now. I have it downloaded on the 360, so I tried out legendary and I am waaaay better. That achievement for losing no health is gonna be super difficult if I'm doing it alone though.I mean, it's still really hard, but Reach did a pretty good job of replicating the difficulty. In Reach I would almost say it's harder because the enemies actually run at you instead of waiting for you to come out of cover. ~U_K~

I'm not even sure I've beat a level in Halo CE/2 on Heroic. Those achievements are intimidating. Also I just realized that Rausaro meant the Terminals that you READ (an excellent addition, I agwee). And here I was getting my hopes up for a remake of Terminal. =///////////

I beat Halo: CE on Heroic up to Keyes. Then I kinda lost interest, especially after how hard The Library was. Halo 2 I never could play on Heroic because of those stupid Jackal snipers.

Yeah, it's really bad when Spark leaves you to go open the door and the Flood conveniently appears to keep you occupied. <_< I ended up hiding in one of the alleys next to the door with a shotgun, shooting at anything that moved.

Which is why I'm sort of happy Assassin's Creed: Revelations comes out the same day. :P If I get frustrated with Legendary (which I'll definitely be playing on for my first play through - it's what I've done up till now, so why change things?), I can switch to that. ~|ET|~

I beat 3, ODST, and Reach on Legendary. ODST was definitely the easiest, then Reach (I don't get why everyone thinks it's so hard), and H3 because of those FREAKING JACKAL SNIPERS.

I'm not allowed to play Halo, which is odd, and annoying, since literally 90% of all the kids i know play Halo, and none are younger than me!

The first game (combat evolved) was quite tame compared to other M rated first person shooters. Well, halo 2 got a bit mild but was still kept tame, halo 3 i could say the same thing. Halo: Reach got much more violent with the neck-wringing stuff. And also, you play as a good guy who shoots hostile aliens. You even defend earth at one point I dunno. Compare to grand theft auto. I heard halo 2 on Legendary is quite hard. anyone ever tried it? i might!1 :winner: Edited by RED JELLY BABY

Can't wait for Anniversary! I'm trusting that Bungie left the Halo series in good hands, and I can't wait to see what 343 produces in the saga! By the way, my gamertag is Nytrone814.

Iron is basically on during co-op, and melees on you are almost always one-hit kills. It's not fun. Also Jackal snipers.

Yeah, sorry I didn't make that more specific. I'm quite interested in the hints toward Halo 4. Read the two chapters that were released from Glasslands... wasn't really all that impressed by Karin Travis. ONI is being incredibly stupid by trying to create a Sanghelli Civil war (What could possibly go wrong with alienating our allies?) and Dr. Halsey is acting....different than how the books used to present her. Still, I'm looking forward to Primordial...

It's because someone different is writing the stories and is trying to make himself stand out.

I don't mind Greg Bear... Karin Travis is just setting up another Human/Alien war over a lack of conflict. Can't they have a period of peace for even a short time? Do we NEED to troll the Elites so we can "Conquer" them? Can't we just have a truce with the Arbiter's faction? The UNSC is having it's first period of peace in over 28 years....the entire military is depleted...and they want to pick another fight? Still, at this point, I hope they kill off Parangosky. She's basically running the UNSC at this point.

I was on my way to reaching the rank of General in Halo Reach. But then, darn!, Gears of War 3 came out, so bye-bye Halo. For now... Definitely playing the Combat Evolved remake.

...Traviss is writing for Halo now? She's the one who gave us Star Wars fans much of our Mandalorian/clone trooper fix before the cartoon. It's no surprise she's just writing about fighting. ~|ET|~

According to an interview with 343, Waypoint will be able to allow players to create any custom challenge that we can complete to earn credits. Our friends can compete in it too. Here's the quote: "Custom challenges is another new feature that 343 Industries is excited about. The feature is a riff on the daily and weekly challenges that 343 issues. It allows friends to create their own challenges for one another, such as scoring 50 headshots in a multiplayer match within 24 hours. The custom challenge option will be available in Campaign, Matchmaking Firefight, Multiplayer, and Custom modes. More than just bragging rights, completed custom challenges yield Halo: Reach credits, at a rate that fluctates depending on the difficulty and circumstances of the task. Reach credits can then be spent on cosmetic upgrades, such as new Spartan armor." Also, there's a windows phone app that has real time location of weapon drops and teammates on the map as you play. Thoughts? ~U_K~

They'd have to find a way to keep people from abusing it for credits, though. Otherwise I think it's pretty nice, especially custom game challenges. Kinda wondering why they never have non-Matchmaking Firefight, though.

People can just set it so they're invincible and have 300% damage, kinda like how people got the Endure challenge. I'm still deciding over which to get first, Battlefield 3 or CEA. I'm thinking Battlefield can wait, I really want to Forge on the new maps. Also, I'll be doing a Halo co-op marathon starting with Reach and ending with Halo 3 when I get CEA.

My guess is the challenges are nothing more than Call of Duty contracts, different ones eachday that can be chosen and such.
