I forget who it was in this quick look that predicted a Halo 1 remake, but they were absolutely correct!!
He should use his motion tracker more.
You know, I don't even like Halo anymore, but even I have to admit that anti-Halo whiners are some of the most annoying, frustrating people on the Internet. "Halo? Yep. Stupid as ever." "More like Yawn-o, AMIRITE?!" Halo is a sci-fi FPS. That's it. That's all. It's not awful. It's not wonderful. It's just fucking Halo. Either you enjoy it or you don't. If you don't enjoy it, move on. Your opinion is treasured by no one but you, your mother, and the Lord God.
As for the pathetic Sony fanboys who claim this is another example of Giant Bomb's Xbox bias, please grow up. I feel no loyalty toward any console and this doesn't look at all like a case of bias. People care about Halo. Giant Bomb does not cover every single thing that happens in this industry. They generally stick to what most people want, while occasionally checking out the edges of the gaming world. Halo is popular. A lot of people care about what these new maps look like. Thus, they looked at them. And any regular GB reader should know that the staff, sadly, isn't big on Team Fortress. I love Team Fortress, and I don't like Halo, but you don't see me whining and crying "Conspiracy!" do you? Just sack up, realize that the world does not always cater to your preferences, and deal with it.
Halo: Vietnam will be the game that gets me back into the series.
Still Halo, still looks braindead
This almost made me want to get gack into the Halo Reach Multiplayer....almost.
If you ever wanted to see the bottom of a Spartan's boot, BAM!
Watch until the end.
Beating Halo on legendary solo is pretty easy you just need patience
" @StickyMicky: I'm confused, when I played this last night after NOT purchasing the map pack, I had no problem finding a game. The DLC was in a completely new playlist, so I don't see how this would be a problem. "I should update, i went on last night and i COULD get into matchmaking.
That's really weird. When I started playing these maps the day they came out, it was a good 2 hours before I got into a match on Tempest.
I need to play more reach
Can anyone else think of other games where you can't quit until the match starts? I've only encountered this in the Halo games, and it's always annoyed me.
Kinda mean to say, but Jeff doesn't seem so great at this Halo thing. Seems like he doesn't really look at his radar ever. Maybe I just notice this kinda stuff because I try pretty hard when I'm playing Reach.
This QL reminded me how annoying the click to zoom mechanic in Halo is.
XBOX Armor Lock!
" @Artemis_D said:Okay, enough with the sarcasm. Let's be reasonable. You make a valid point, but not exactly a good point. Like it or not, you're in the minority of a great deal of users who come to this site,. They're a small group of dudes who can only cover so much, so what decision do you make? Do you cover a game that only a couple hundred users might be interested in, or a game a couple thousand users would be interested in? The answer is obvious. Would I love to see that stuff? Sure! But bias? Really? Seriously? I get really tired of people throwing that word around. It has completely lost meaning on the Internet. I'm sorry, but every who doesn't like the things that you like does not make a something or someone biased." @EgoCheck616 said:Inorite. Because no one plays Team Fortress 2 or MAG anymore. That's why they keep releasing content for people who don't exist. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam? Who would ever think of buying that? Oh wait.. most of the people on my friends list. "" Another milk for Halo. Really? After all the content games like MAG, Team Fortress 2, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have been adding. THIS is what you direct your attention to. This site's bias is quickly becoming evident. "You are so right. There is an obvious bias toward games that a majority of people actually care about. How dare they? I, for one, am disgusted. "
Haha :D "Xbox Unfreeze" lol :) ... these maps has crashed on me too once.
Nice QL. I really like Breakpoint.
People like their Team Slayer though someone should tell them a little variety never hurt.
Haven't played a Halo game since Halo 3 and this looks just like it.
Gotta get halo.
" Shame on you Bungie, or microsoft or whoever. I was forced into purchasing this add on. The only way I could play any xbox live matches with a friend was if we both purchased the maps. Otherwise the only thing me and a friend could do was coop or firefight. And once I bought it, me and my friend played big team battle, team slayer and zombies, and after 3 hours of playing, not once did I play a new map. I dont care how sweet these maps are, they totally ruin the online experience for anyone who doesn't want to waste 10 bucks. "Yes, this is what happened to me last night :(
I don't play Reach multiplayer much to be fair, but last night i logged in and attempted to have a blast, the only playlists i could into without the DLC was the firefight ones and campaign.
None of the matchmaking ones would let me in until i bought the DLC.
I found this a bit shitty, buy a new game and then have to pay a month or so later just to play decent multiplayer?
Ended up playing a few games of campaign and one session of whatever mode has you as 2vs2 firefight (is it grab bag?)
I wouldnt mind just getting dropped from a lobby if a dlc map was chosen, but to not even let me in at all seamed a bit rough :(
the reason i stopped playing is because everyone just likes playing slayer all the time.
its fucking boring dude.
i dont get it. team deathmatch every damn time?! and then you actually chose to do it with a boring weapon?!
red ring for the win
This makes me want to play Halo again. I haven't really played since before the 360 came out (since I don't have an XBox), and I kind of just want to play again.
The worst part about Halo online is not the douche bag chatter (you can mute that) but it's people alway picking the same goddamn match types over and over again.
People suck sometimes.
Yep, still not interested in Reach. Fun Quick Look though.
There is only one quick look as far as i'm concerned.
Xbox Ed Fries usually works for me too. I don't know what's wrong with your Xbox at all.

Halo Combat Evolved supported multiplayer for the PC, and Mac! How I miss it....
K4rn4ge was in one of those matches. I only know him because we went back and forth in the original geometry wars for high score on the leaderboards =P
Maps seem pretty good, but I don't know if I'm into Reach MP enough to pony up the cash for the map pack. I have a feeling I'm gonna end up spending the $10 on ilomilo instead :D
Jeff clearly does not understand the multilayer. Very frustrating to watch. All game play here aside, its nice to have quick-looks regardless.
CE probably isn't my favorite Halo either but even I will admit that game beats the heck out of Reach in story, gameplay, and even soundtrack.
I don't find this quick look offensive or anything like some users, but yeah, it basically feels like this ship has sailed.
" @ryanwho: You think that's bad go play Black Ops.Just play a few matches and hear the "community".You will loose all fate in the future of mankind's intelligence. "Actually, Black Ops has been pretty much silent these past few weeks. And the few conversations I've picked up on have been absolutely harmless.
" @LordXavierBritish: Yeah, and you can get those just by playing. "And I got this map pack by just playing.
" @LordXavierBritish: You're not missing out by not having a Slime hat. "The Polycount pack had a shit load of weapons that have actual gameplay effects.
maps should be free unless the packs have like 10 maps, but three really come on
I actually haven't encountered many idiots on Halo, thankfully.
I've found a lot more in my time with Black Ops and the brief period I played TF2.
