    The menu is all coop. If you're on the main menu just hit X and then invite a friend from there, or join their game (if it's open). If a friend is playing and their game is open you can select them and then Join Player
    Or are you talking about randoms' games?

    Invite a friend to your game - if you press X on the menu you'll see your party/friend list, and if they join you'll see the two of you together.

    If you join a party you can easily see who else is there, but the leader will see all the menus etc until he/she starts a search for a game.

    Not sure why.
    Someone jumped on top of my Mech when I was stomping through a level over the weekend but he was killed by a team mate shortly after. So was he just going to grenade the cockpit then? Didn't realise you couldn't be hijacked in them.

    By hijack I mean board and assume control yourself.

    You can leap onto it, as with any other vehicle, and pummel/grenade it to death.

    Wow. That was the worst Halo campaign by quite some distance. Even Halo 2's had it's moments. Aside from Reclaimer, this was the dullest SP campaign in AAA FPS I've played for a while.

    At least the graphics and soundtrack were nice though eh?...

    Back to the amazing MP from now on then, and away from only Halo campaign I've not wanted to replay.

    And who designed that awful part with the seemingly infinite respawning robo-skags on that bridge on the last level? Just dreadful.

    Glad this came up becuase I will probably find myself in a situation where I'm trying to take over a Mech and can't work out why it isn't letting me.

    Anyway, I've not played since Saturday lunch time and I am really looking forward to getting some Halo 4 time in after wrok.
    I still have the campaign to finish off which is strange because for every Halo it has been completed it within two of purchase. It isn't that I'm not enjoying the campaign becuase I really am.
    Must be a sign that I'm loving the multiplayer.

    Nice to see Somatic with his usual level-headedness there.

    That's creepy, and I don't think the game has an option like that, but I didn't check, since that's weird.

    No, I don't think there is any campaign matchmaking.

    It was smooth?!

    I never used it (beyond seeing if it worked or not).

    Campaign with randoms on Reach was fun.

    /stealth 'I am also creepy with no friends' post...! That was a bit harsh Psychokitten!

    I'm pretty sure you can set your party to open. That is, I've seen menu option for your party and the default is "friends only". I expect "invite only" and "open" are the other options.

    Press X then RB to get there.

    Quick question. The spec ops missions don't expire or anything do they? I've not had a chance to play any yet and I'm concerned that I'm going to miss out.

    No. People wanting to play the latest ones or 343 matchmaking fucking you over, not so sure.

    Yes you do have friends, although I'm not sure a blow up doll with Diana Vickers face pasted on it can play Halo that well.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    I had an awesome thing on a mantis - guy was behind me, about to board... so I jumped out, back over his head, smashed his skull in as I fell, and then climbed back in.

    Shame it was on splitscreen, I forgot to save it :(
