    Standard is so low. Water is so warm. I bathed in scrub blood tonight.

    What's with huge delay between sprinting and being able to shoot ?

    I haven't noticed this in SP, except with the DMR. Even then the way I tend to play means it doesn't harm me.

    I imagine it's an MP balance: quite annoying there, I assume!

    Don't sprint into battle.

    Heroic seems harder than I remember... :/
    And no coop for me as I am currently ISP-less.

    Looks stellar, though! ;)

    What is the point of the thrusters?
  • Deleted user 7 November 2012 08:07:16
    @Apostle

    For surprise attacks and avoiding grenades.
  • Deleted user 7 November 2012 08:12:22
    Evasion and nothing else. I had someone have me off with one when I sprinted and lunged at him with sword. He'd melee'd me dead while I was still in the cool down animation. Only effective use of the Thruster I've seen so far.

    Also, how the fuck is the 360 capable of those campaign graphics?
  • Deleted user 7 November 2012 08:56:10
    It's weird, it doesn't feel like you move very far. I think they should have kept the camera first person for this one, although it does look cool 3rd person.

    So does it replaces the forward/backward roll you could do as an Elite in Reach?

    @[maven] Am really enjoying this... more than Reach. The graphics are great, the story is the best yet and the gameplay while largely similar is excellent. Lots of new weapons as well, including UNSC as well a alien.

    Been playing on Heroic and although I've died a few times I don't find it as hard in this game as others. From the difficulty descriptions it seems like Heroic is the normal setting as it states, how Halo 4 should be played.

    Started this last night, did the first mission of the campaign and managed about half an hour on the MP before the servers went tits up.

    Ill start with the campaign - amazing. Graphically, its got to be the best that the 360 has accomplished so far, absolutely jaw dropping stuff. Also, 343 have fixed something that has ALWAYS bugged me about Halo games : The assault rifle no longer feels like a pea-shooter!, meatier, louder and deadlier, NOW it feels like a proper assault rifle!.

    As far as the MP goes, i only managed a few games of Team Slayer and i thought it was great. I got my ass handed to me, naturally, but ill get better over time - really enjoyed it.

    Overall, a very promising start. Looking forward to jumping back in tonight....

    @MatMan562 Take cover constantly... Playing on Legendary means as soon as you pop out of cover your shield are gone so unless you are playing co-op, which I'm not even sure you can do as I've not attempted this yet, the game can be a slog and not very enjoyable.

    Also, she has "no idea" how he got his hands on the game...........one of his friends from school must have let him borrow it.

    What a cunt of a woman.

    Apparently the attributes of the Thruster in Flood mode are quite different to how it works in Slayer etc. So at least 343i can tinker with it if people shout loud enough.

    Sticking with Promo Vision for now anyway tbh.

    well first game went 29-6... the DMR is a bit of a beast and not as flaky for me as in Reach. Didn't try regular old slayer as I couldn't join the usual old age pensioners. I was nervous about the 'perks' but they don't seem to be massive game changers. Got the damage boost, got all cocky and was dead in the blink of an eye.

    Not sure what I think of the campaign, loved it initially but the dogs are just plain annoying but maybe I was just getting tired. Does the Promethean pistol have a delay when trying to single shot or am I just doing it wrong?

    I'm a bit torn at the moment.

    The frag grenade needs beefing up a bit, it was driving me mad last night dropping one at the feet of people and it not even popping their shields.

    Also, a quick note to the other chaps getting their asses handed to them - this is person who is killing you over and over again :

    The AoE seems much reduced. Might grow to be a real irritation, but at least it's not the hand-held nukes of Reach...!

    Yup, first thing i did in Flood last night was thrust into a wall and kill myself.

    From what I understand 343 can tinker quite heavily with the game, so hopefully we'll see any imbalances... replaced by new ones.

    Halo 3 had a signifcant update about halfway through.

    I found it a right a right pain in the arse when trying to take on 2 people, before you could lob a frag then pop them off with a couple of head shots. Now you have to be a lot more careful when engaging multiple enemy's because of the lack of AoE of the frags.

    Interesting. Will be fun to play around with. Are they more or less powerful than H3 frags? I notice in campaign they were far less powerful than Reach.

    I'd probably say they are less powerful than H3's and no where near Reach's.

    I also don't like the new ranking system.
