I just finished the last episode a few minutes ago and I'm confident the game will get its due discussion by the end of the year. Dang.
Brad's forum posts
If you're playing it on 360 you're going to have about a 1 in 100 chance that it's going to go very wrong, but otherwise you'll be fine.
That's only if you had an existing save before you patched the game. If you're starting fresh with the most recent title update, you're fine.
XBLA version is perfectly fine now, go for it. But if you like playing games on your PC, the inevitable PC version is guaranteed to be better (1080p and a better frame rate if nothing else).
@Hailinel: At $40,000 a patch can you really blame him? I'd rather keep that money to take a break and move on to the next game, after all this games been his life for a very long time.
It's his own damn fault for releasing a broken patch
The save game bug affected less than 1% of an installed base that's well over 100k. I'm no QA specialist but I don't think it's unreasonable for a development team of two to have missed it.
That is the joke..........also helps if your a fan of Hey Ash Watcha Playin.
The two people responsible for what you dont like.
I've really liked all the HAWP I've seen but find Tiny Tina tremendously annoying. WHAT NOW?!
So... apparently rampancy is a thing in the Halo universe now? Because that was never how it worked before, that was a Marathon thing. In the Halo universe, a smart AI (like Cortana) just would think itself to death after ~7 years.
Maybe it's just Brad misunderstanding, but giving him the benefit of the doubt, I'm not feeling that upbeat about the story in this game if it's going to ignore previously established story material like that.
Cortana specifically mentions her limited lifespan in the e3 trailer.
There's no reason the two concepts can't co-exist in the Halo universe. Brad is probably just confusing the two. Her rampancy will probably be aided by, y'know... coming into contact with godlike Forerunner a.i.
Is there anyway to get more gold keys in the game?
Not at the moment. You get one if you're in the premiere club and one for signing up for their silly Shift rewards program. Gearbox is fronting like they may distribute more in the future.
I wasted a key on that chest too before I knew it was that chest, then as soon as I realized what I'd opened, I alt-F4'd out of the game to hopefully avoid it saving. But it already had, so not only did I lose a key, I didn't get the loot either. Terrible design on their part, I've seen tons of people saying they did the same thing.
