    Meh, over it. The blue chick will be back, too much both in-game and by 343 in interviews points at that direction for it not to happen, and Frank isn't so fucking stupid that he doesn't understand Cortana is just as important to Halo lore as the Chief.

    Currently angry at the lack of campaign co-op matchmaking. Whose bright idea was that? Whoever it was, sack 'em.

    Agreed. My legendary partner disappeared so would love matchmaking.

    Yeah, awful isn't it? 343 create one of the best villains of the year - easily the best antagonist in the series - and resolve it like *that*?!

    Campaign matchmaking is a terrible idea. The woes far outweigh the benefits.
  • Deleted user 19 December 2012 10:36:12
    That is nice for you. If you don't want to play campaign matchmaking you wouldn't be forced to. However me and I'm sure many thousands of others really would like it.

    Of course.

    It's still a terrible idea.
  • Deleted user 19 December 2012 10:45:15
    Like I said, overall it is a good idea, just like in reach. If people want to play with strangers give them the opportunity.

    It was shite in Reach.

    I'm all for opportunities, but there are points where the effort simply isn't worth investing, in my view.

    But anyway.

    Not really. If you don't like it you don't have to use it and can just stick to using people from your friends list.

    I found matchmaking pretty essential in Reach however, and never once encountered the problem of lurkers or people with bad attitudes.

    Hm, slightly spoilery there..

    Anyway, I would very much like Sparten Ops matchmaking to have a Legendary option. I still need to do most of Ep1 and Ep4/5 on Legendary and never seem to get anyone on to do it.

    Just do it solo. Easy as you have infinite lives.

    Yeah, but Spartan Ops solo just doesn't feel right, it's clearly designed for 4 players, even if it does downscale balance and difficulty to accommodate solo play.

    Plus I just want to play the game coop, dammit!

    Agreed. I'm half way through legendary and the person I'm doing it with is out of action with depression. I am that bad to play with!

    Campaign matchmaking wouldn't be a good idea for any Halo game, the net-code for Halo games are just too bad!

    I don't think it's netcode that brings co-op down most of the time. There is so much information being exchanged in Halo levels, rather than a shooting gallery of cardboard with little effect. I think you need very solid connections or servers, Microsoft!

    I am very nearly done with this on Heroic, which is the right balance of being a challenge and most importantly, fun!

    ... however, what I do noticed on my second play-through, the tougher difficulty actually makes some levels/missions more enjoyable; Requiem, Reclaimer and Composer are brilliant.

    On the other hand, playing on Heroic really shows the games limited scope. The few times you can fly around in a banshee is without question truly poor. The actual space to fly around in is so small and limited; hitting the invisible ceiling within four or five seconds upon taking of is rubbish.

    Other areas can be a bit dull in which the 30-seconds-of-fun goes out of the window. Too many crawlers and watchers in the latter stages of the game makes it sigh-including along with the cheap one-hit-kill teleporting knights.

    The ghost thingummy at the end of level three is horrendous and the last area on the final mission lacks any kind of imagination from the developers; three similar looking tiered platforms is exciting, not!

    Loving Spartan Ops (matchmaking) on Legendary though ...

    ... : )

    I've just picked up Halo 4, and I'd like to go through the campaign co-op with someone. Now the Christmas holiday has arrived, I can put some fairly regular late nights in. send me a message on XBL if you're interested. Thanks! Gamertag: Brit anime fan

    Have to admit I enjoy BTB in this more than every other except Halo 2 at times. Maybe the join in progress helps and the power weapons keep vehicles in check to allow more access to the map.

    Guess vehicles don't last too long and you never know what super weapon your enemy is going to pull out but mindless fun when you get good maps. I was excited to play longbow, new to me but never again now, awful map. Think I only like about four maps but they can be tiresome.

    The soundtrack you can get for about 4.50 off Amazon if you subscribe to the mp3 newsletter for those who liked it. Bargin.

    BTB is my go-to for multiplayer now. Absolutely love it.

    Still in two minds over the Gauss Warthog. I absolutely love shooting or even driving in it, because it just cranks up your score. But on the flip side it's exceptionally overpowered but only in the right hands.
  • Deleted user 23 December 2012 19:53:58
    That depends on loadouts. I find if a team mostly has plasma pistols the warthog gets taken out pretty quick. If no one around has plasma pistols then yeah it is very lethal.

    If I drive I only ever stay down the blue end and away from any real action, and always keep moving. Utterly lethal, and really irritating for the red team.

    Two armour abilities that didn't make the cut. Hacker and teleport.
