    Up to you. Not sure how effective each one is in normal play. Still at SR43. DRM is pretty lethal as is.

    Gosh ... finally!

    I am looking forward to the new 'season' of Spartan Ops as well as - finally, again! - specialisations being available, which means I can stop worrying about passing level fifty in the near future.

    Yay, two small maps. That is very much needed.

    As is the Specialisations unlock, finally.

    Forge Test Playlist coming on the 21st!

    That's brilliant news.

    Although you can't help feeling that if Forge match-making had been there from week 1 there would be far fewer pre-owned copies of Halo 4 in CEX...

    ... WTF?

    I decided to try one of those campaign challenges with three skulls on any mission on Heroic ... and I did it!

    Yet it doesn't show up that I have done it, which I blooming well have!

    Any idea(s) what is going on?

    I don't think that's really the case. They've been cautious with Forge MM because Reach overdosed on it from day one.

    Yup, maybe. Although with Reach wasn't the problem that we didn't even get a full set of proper maps to begin with and they made up the numbers with Forge maps from the start....

    More maps available to all is better! I think people get bored of playing the same 5 slayer maps over and over and there's defiantely a mountain of traded in Halos in CEX...

    Reach was overloaded with Forge instead of proper maps. Halo 4 is a bit different.

    Still comes down to the fileshare problem and I imagine they would like people to buy map packs instead. They aren't exactly all guns blazing for the community features.

    No idea if this would affect it or not but could it be to do with which Skulls you chose? I haven't even looked at them in Halo 4 but in some of the older games they were split into ones that just changed little things (Grunt Birthday Party, the "IWHBYDEIEIO" one) and then ones that actually made it harder. Could be that you need to choose 3 of the difficulty raising ones or I could just be talking balls.

    I'm looking forward to the new maps and return of Spartan Ops but i'm probably most looking forward to Grifball and 2v2, they were ones I was hoping would be available at the start.

    Yeah that, it has to be three difficulty raising skulls.

    See, I used Famine, Tilt and Thunderstorm ... the specified skulls for the challenge, on Heroic, but nothing happened after the mission nor was the challenge 'completed' in the Spartan ID area thingummy.

    *sighs*

    I played it on solo, if that is any help?

    Just finished campaign, absolutely brilliant. Possibly my favourite.

    The Mantis is definitely one of my favourite additions. Awesome stompy fun in Spartan Ops, Campaign or Mutliplayer :) Though I've always love a nice mech.

    The Mantis in a way reminds me of a more powerful ground vehicle of the Hornet from Halo 3. It's more of a vehicle where you wanna stay back and put shots into people rather than rushing around in it like a Ghost.

    Also really wish they'd brought back the chopper from Halo 3, loved that, was great to use on Sandbox :)

    WTF. Does anyone know how HaloTracker works? Apparently I'm 138 in the world for Carbine kills, but I've only got 1044 kills with it. I'm thinking it only compares you with the people who have actually signed up to the site? Anyone know?

    Tried out the multiplayer for the first time tonight and it's fantastic! Why have I never played it online before...

    Welcome to the party Cosmic Fuzz, Halo online always has been more than a little special in my blinkered eyes.

    So glad the Forge maps are coming, although that Erosion one can do one.

    No plans for Big Team Objective?

    Cheers! If there's a regular group of folk playing online I'd be up for joining in some games.

    Multiplayer is what Halo is all about, never having played it is some kind of crime against nature.

    I'm loving that there is an actual CTF playlist, but I wish they'd still have doubles. We used to piss around in the other playlists but when we played doubles, shit got serious.

    Get bent.

    AFAIK it only tracks those who register with the site. So you are number 138 of the Halo players registered with HT.

    That is the beauty of halo as for me it is all about the campaign, either solo or co op.
    Whilst I have always enjoyed mp it is nothing of battlefield.

    It's nothing like Battlefield. I love them both but there's definitely space for both.

    You mean Team Doubles? 2v2? Apparently they're adding that in a few weeks. Early February I think. If you mean the 2v2v2v2v2 then I don't think it's been mentioned but I'd also want it added along with Big Team Objectives, then there would be every playlist I like in it.

    Tried playing this last night and the lag was terrible. People were teleporting all over the place and then I would be killed from nowhere.

    First time I've ever had trouble with lag on Halo.

    Yeah, I had mostly great games with decent connections, but had some truly awful ones too. Rubberbanding and invisible kills aplenty. Best to quit and try again.

    Sometimes spec ops could get really laggy for some reason too. On connections that were great all the other times. It was really weird.
