    I did something I would not normally do and tried for the 'keep all the marines alive' achievement on the jungle mission.

    So, I kind of did it and then one of the marines decided to go out into the open and die just as I pulled Cortana out of the door-lock thingummy ...

    ... cue 'checkpoint' flashing up immediately afterwards.

    *sighs*

    I very much doubt I can be arsed to do that ordeal again.

    Is Bros to the Close easier in co-op or is it manageable in solo?
  • Deleted user 14 December 2012 20:47:23
    Co op. Def co op. You need to make yourself the target so the more people the better.

    @altitude2k this guy had literally thousands of games played, and a K/D of 17500 to 6000. Terrifying. Hardly played Ops to boost either. Only Campaign he'd done was Solo Legendary, checked his profile. Some gamers are just so far beyond me...

    I thought no chance solo but gave it a go anyway. Really isn't that hard, just be extremly offensive. Two marines at the start and four more when you reach the water, don't cross those sandbags straight away, makes the marines push forward otherwise. Lasers pronto. Checkpoints are fair so easy to repeat quickly. Once to the door, just load up, take the turret closest to the door and the marines manage fine. Be on the look out towards the left once, rest is easy.

    That shouldn't work. Should it? Clearly does though.

    Tried, and I can't even get the grenades to bounce perpetually.

    Plus it seems that the entire Halo 4 community is doing this so no one actually gets killed by them.

    It's sad that this is how the achievements work though. I mean, "get the right medals and you get the achievement" isn't quite right...

    Well, they couldn't be any worse than Reach DLC achievements, wait a minute, they are.

    Got slaughtered this afternoon, headless chicken teams against organised ones, no chance. Bit laggy too.

    I didn't realise it had been so long since playing Halo MP, I'm really rusty...

    Loving the sticky detonator, that thing leads to some hilarious kills. Mantis is pretty cool too, though it seems very overpowered, taking far too much damage in MP before it goes down and having way too much firepower.

    Is there no way to play previous Spartan Ops chapters online against people not on your friends list? Can you really only matchmake for the latest chapter?

    No but they are running the series from the start again, one each week. They are doing a best of selection last time I looked but the rerun is imminent.

    I always thought it was a bit odd that not all of them were available for matchmaking after the episode was up, but I guess with 25 available chapters (doubling at least in the future), it's a lot to keep maintained or to expect to be reasonably populated.

    Rerunning the series and playing best ofs is probably the best way to keep people playing.

    They could do it similar to voting in slayer I guess, with a choice of three chapters per round.

    With the same 2 chapters voted every single time?!

    If they did that, you'd be playing a lot of Shootout in Valhalla. That, or people would just quit out if it wasn't one of the 3 options. Maybe not though, who knows.

    I only just found out you can assassinate Watchers. Very satisfying, jumping and grabbing on to a flying Bike and kneeing it to bits :D

    New to me, gives me an excuse to play campaign. Any easy set ups?

    Old in Halo 3 but I never knew you could destroy a scarab from the ground. Shoot it enough after the legs drop and the power core is visible to hit when bits fall off.

    Took one of the last ones out with a Hornet. Didn't even need to hit the legs, just blew up that back plate to reveal the core.

    Poor design by the Covvies IMO ;-)

    I really hate that greeny map in the new map pack! The other two are great though, surprised I like any of them, but that greenish map, I hate it!!

    I just completed this on Legendary, solo! I'm very proud of myself to be honest. After the first 3 missions I, surprisingly, didn't find anything too bad, i'm guessing because I just got used to it. Obviously I still died a lot but I never got really frustrated with anything except the last bit.

    Yay me!

    Just rattled through this on normal for the first time today (normally start on heroic but cba this time). Next up for me is legendary. Quite looking forward to giving it a play through.

    Always enjoy the Halo games better on legendary. Decent sense of satisfaction once finished. Not that anyone else gives a damn :)

    The second legendary run on a Halo game is always the time I enjoy it the most. You know what to expect but this time it is a challenge.

    Same can be said for most games, actually.

    I've completed every single Halo game on legendary solo, including Halo Wars.

    Except for Halo 2. From the point where you have to clear that hangar on the Cairo, I found it far far too difficult.

    I keep meaning to go back to Halo 2, I've never got round to finishing it. Have it on PC, keep meaning to get round to firing it up.

    Same with Wars, which just never clicked for me as even with the admittedly excellent pad controls I still couldn't get used to playing an rts without mouse and keyboard. I really hope MS realise they need to start investing in pc gaming again and make a pc-only sequel.

    Anyway, I'm on the last level of 4 now. Thoroughly enjoyed every second so far, though It's seemed a bit short. I don't actually think that's anything to do with the length of the actual game but rather that the story just doesn't seem to go anywhere. Reach had a clear arc running through it, as did ODST and the previous games. In compairson, 4 just feels a bit... Empty. There's loads of lore there, and obviously what's going on with cortana (which really only seems to have "happened", despite being spoken about for the whole game, in the last couple missions), but the whole thing moves so fast that plot points aren't developed or events feel truncated when they could have been expanded on. It doesn't feel Epic.

    Excellent game though, and perhaps I'm just comparing it unfavourably to Reach which is, in my mind, the best in the series on almost every level.

    Finished my Legendary Solo playthrough last night. The 7th mission was even better than I remember from my Heroic playthrough, and the first half of the 8th mission really makes me wish for a spin-off game entirely of spaceship battles seeing as it's unlikely Nintendo will do a proper Starfox sequel.

    All together the Legendary playthrough wasn't that difficult, generally there's always enough firepower around to deal with what ever the game throws at you.

    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.
