    Possibly a silly question, but, Spartan Ops, once the episodes are released, are they there forever, or is it just until the next one? I haven't played any yet.

    Ok.

    So why did everyone seem to know so much about the Didact, including his name after just one fleeting meeting. Surely that couldn't have sat right.
    Apparently it was all covered in the Halo: Cyptum novel.

    I'm fine with expanded universe fiction and using comics, books etc, but when understanding the plot of a game actually relies on you investing in that expanded universe fiction then there's something wrong.
    It didn't, however. I followed it fine.

    I didn't. What the fuck is a Diadact?

    He's the general of the Forerunner army. But I had to learn that from the terminals...

    So are there any new environments in Spartan Ops this week, or is it the same areas again?
    Same areas with slight variants, still superb though.
    Yeah thats pretty much what I was expecting. I'm really enjoying Spartan Ops but it'd be nice to get some new environments, it's gonna get a bit samey otherwise.

    I'm still getting server unavailable message :(

    Bah, perhaps tomorrow it'll be better.
  • Deleted user 27 November 2012 00:04:46
    Just watched all terminal videos in a row. Pure madness to have them on waypoint, just in game surely??? I now get everything that happens in the game rather than thinking huh.
    Now I completely get the composer etc and what the hell the knights are.

    Thinking for halo 5 on next Xbox they going to bring back the flood. If 343 make them more interesting and mOre terrifying I'm up for that. Would just make it even more diverse.

    I guess they want to drive more people to Waypoint by integrating it into the games more closely.

    Gold sub being a requirement is another reason for pushing Waypoint but at least 343 weren't stupid enough to put the terminal videos behind Gold, just about. I'm sure they were very tempted but decided to give Halo 4 terminals their Gold free corner of Waypoint.

    I wouldn't mind the flood in some form, they need to do something with the Prometheans because they are far too boring as they are.

    Wouldn't have made a huge difference if they did make it a requirement, to be honest. New copies ship with a generous Gold trial of two weeks. After two weeks, it's likely that if you are still playing it's going to be multiplayer not the SP campaign.

    I have a feeling that the reason they made promethean weapons pretty much analogues of UNSC weapons was because they didn't want to bite off more than they could chew by trying to balance so many distinct weapons against each other in MP.

    @MrTomFTW
    Ha ha, good video. You thought about submitting it to Achievement Hunter's Fails of the Weak? They said in the latest one they'll be switching to Halo 4 soon.
  • Deleted user 27 November 2012 07:29:24
    Hehe, yeah that's very good, should deffo submit it to fails of the week.

    I blew myself up yesterday, but just with the regular grenade, which is even more silly.

    I managed to perform a classic Halo fail yesterday in Spartan Ops. Board a Banshee and boot it to get to a spare Mantis. Bail out of the Banshee at height, land next to the Mantis, step forward... Banshee falls on head = dead.

    \o/

    Is there a film mode for campaign?
  • Deleted user 27 November 2012 11:05:13
    No. They've talked about the possibility of putting it in via TU.
