    Yeah true, in campaign there is little use as ai just walk through with what seems minimal damage. Used the blocking techniques a lot on king of the hill on haven.

    I thought the pro grenades were pointless to befin with. However their combination of onstant detonation and power makes them quite potent. Very useful for Knights on legendary and for zoning in mp. It's a great tactical addition.

    Cool moment when Elites chased me down, they wouldn't let up at all. I was fighting from distance picking off the weaker enemies, running out of ammo so started to move back the way I came, remaining Elites start moving forward, I retreat down a corridor, in they come, quickly pick up a plasma pistol, chuck a grenade, still retreating under fire, down another corridor, still they pursue. Couldn't get a breather. Quite awesome. They didn't stick to their spawn area at all or just walk into new areas, it was after me. Took them down with plasma pistol and my last few shots of the carbine. Does happen in Halo but it was so spot on and the distance they travelled I had to mention it.

    I think Dominion reminds me a lot of Section 8 Prejudice.

    Really liking Halo 4 especially online, enough to make me go and purchase the guide definitely made it more appealing to the masses. Which is a good thing imho

    It's peer to peer, so if nobody's playing it, it'll not be there.

    It doesn't seem to have the options for Ep.1 anymore though, so if you do start it, can anyone join you? There seems to be matchmaking for the new ones only.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Yeah, you would have thought that if that was the case then at least ONE person would be playing, but they don't exist in the list. I guess they'll be back after it's all done.

    That said they're not hugely different. Same maps.

    I have to say I really enjoyed episode 2. Much more fun than one. I need to stop rushing in though as there LOADS of elites and I'm going for glory which ends in tears. Love the cut scenes. Roll on 3.
    Did seem weird episode 1 was not available though.

    Also Spartan ops really highlights how much more fun the covenant are to fight. On the the non covenant levels there just isn't the same fun.

    Had the mistake of trying to play multiplayer while not within a party of friends and with voice chat enabled. It's like some strange form of torture putting up with the regular xbox live massive.

    After more and more games I'm still undecided, sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. Especially on Capture The Flag, the games always seem on sided...either get whipped or do the whipping. Especially on one map where the blue team always starts on the bottom, flag in the open, while the red team's flag is in a base. Hardly fair!

    Big Team needs some bigger maps and an actual kill count or increased point tally as well, there's no real room for the big vehicles and where's the wraith?

    There are wraiths on some maps in BTB. I have seen a few. There's one on one of the snowy ones, possibly vortex. I'm not fully up to speed with all the names as I'm usually perusing the stats and missing the vote most of the time.

    I got a shock when a scorpion rolled out on exile, but ti didn't last long thankfully.

    I quite like the Mantis, but rarely get one.

    Also, didn't the Banshee used to be able to drop green bombs/missiles? I can only fire lasers these days. The dodging is no problem, but I swear I seem to remember that on H3 you could bomb. Was that removed in reach and this? Or is senile dementia kicking in?

    More open I mean than necessarily bigger, I know Haemorrhage wasn't exactly a classic but I loved the open nature of the battles...

    Senile dementia :). You can swap between lasers and a fuel rod missile/cannon like you could in all the other Halo games. Think its the Y button...at least when you're using the Bumper Jumper control scheme.

    Not seen a wraith yet so something to look forward too then, the Banshee still can fire them but you have to change it. I use the recon layout and it's the Y button for me, your aiming reticule changes when you've selected the bombs. Though the banshee's are not quite the screaming death birds they were.

    Thanks folks. who'd have guessed it'd be the change weapon button, then pressing fire.

    Had some really smooth Big Team Battles last night.

    Was matched up with players who seemed to be from Holland, and it was super-smooth lag free. Really nice. On Sunday I had tried and it was a bit laggy (really noticeable if you started trying to bomb around in a Ghost) - last night was so much better.

    I reckon this is shaping up to be an actual-genuine great game.

    Majorly annoying bug happened to me last night

    "So, amongst the fair amount of bugs that I've found in the game, I've just found one that's *really* annoyed me. The achievement for "Get your Spartan IV to level 20" is glitched; I'm level 20 and it hasn't unlocked. As I can never, ever, become level 20 again, I can never unlock this achievement.
    The cause of this is Halo Waypoint (Also in itself quite buggy). The extra terminals and the Raider armour that can be unlocked via Halo Waypoint also grant you exp bonuses. When I input the codes into Halo Waypoint, I didn't realises I was so close to a level up from 19 to 20. Not that I should matter I might point out. When I logged back into Halo 4 I was level 20. No achievement. I played a game hoping that simply going through the motions of gaining exp would unlock it. No joy."
    Just incase anyone else was worried about this; some bright spark put in a backup check. When I leveled up to 21 the achievement popped.

    I still haven't received mine :(

    Tesco Direct said they'd complete pre-orders for launch day. Rang a twerp on customer services today who said although an email was dispatched prior to launch, the games didn't actually get posted until the 8th. Frown. That was my delivery date.

    So as of today, I have to wait 10 days for it to turn up. Completely defeats the purpose of a pre-order, won't be using them again. Saving a fiver seems completely pointless if it is going to take this long.
