Eh, I managed to play quite a few games. It beats the old "run, shoot, and punch" combat of the last two games, that's for sure. It feels more like Combat Evolved mixed with Gears and Bad Company 2. Eh, something like that...

lol. Just feels like more of Halo multiplayer to me. But, I'm actually enjoying it tongue.gif.

I'm 3 for 3 right now. And that's about as much as i can do for tonight.

I also over heard someone say that I have "Mad Jet-Pack Skillz".

Edit: also, If you are participating, please say so (and say your gamertag) so I can add your gamertags to the OP

Same thing happened with the H3 beta, had to be IN Crackdown. And considering Crackdown takes half a christ-on-a-biking year to load up, consider yourself lucky. Although, I think Brutal legend rapes Halo any day of the week. "DECAPITATIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!"

My GT is Trumpetman009.

Do we need mics for this or does it not matter?

doesn't matter. Just aslong as you have a good time tongue.gif.

edit: Just got an idea. Would someone be able to record footage and create a montage (showing our names and then have something awesome happen that we did)?

Well I managed to play a good number of games last night.

Let me begin by saying its a huge improvement over Halo 3's multiplayer. The armor ability seriously mixes up the gameplay in a good way, and the run-shoot-smack is significantly downplayed. There are a few things that I think should be changed though.

1. Sprint shouldn't be an armor ability. It should just be an inherent ability that you have regardless. Otherwise, make it SPRINT. Like, blurry fast. It just seems to me that Sprint when compared to armor lock, jet packs, and stealth is kinda weak. Why should I sacrifice having a potent ability just so I can run a bit faster for a few seconds? So either give it to everyone all the time, or upgrade it.

2. DMR. I like Halo's precision weapons. I really like the DMR in concept. However, it takes way too many shots to kill somebody. You have a 12 round magazine and a really slow rate of fire. I think 3-5 shots should be enough to drop a fully shielded opponent.

3. Why can't I customize my legs too!

4. Why does the jetpack disappear when you die? Also, wouldn't it be neat if dying while using the jet pack results in you flying around wildly and exploding against something!

^ I'm pretty sure you can customize your legs, waist, and more in the full game. I remember them saying how they are limiting it to more of a Halo 3 style customization for the beta.

I agree with everything he said, especially on the sprinting part. I mean, why do you need an armor attachment to do something that's already there naturally? I also think it would be cool if when you got killed on the jetpack your body zoomed around for a few seconds, just for the lulz.

@Sarge McCla:

1. Yea, sprint should be just a regular ability.

2. Agreed. It takes to many shots to take down an opponent, even when you're aiming at the head.

3. I'm pretty sure MC2829 is correct on that subject

4. lol. If you get killed in mid-air with the jetpack, you do a sort of spiral fall to the ground.

I also really think Bungie should consider custom load outs to a certain degree. Nothing too complicated like MW2. You should be able to pick between a basic primary, a basic sidearm, an armor attribute, and a grenade type. Power weapons can be left to be found on the map. For Primaries you have the choice of DMR, Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Plasma Repeater, Needler, or Needle Rifle. For secondary you can pick a magnum or a plasma pistol.
