@Imsorrymsjackson: The microsoft branded one?

@CrimsonNoir: Hmm I was under the impression that the receivers from microsoft didn't have to do any MacGuyvering as the off brand ones that is the number one problem I've been reading about. Although that is more in respect to drivers and its sounds like you are referring to a hardware thing. With that in mind I may just get a generic one.

@rebgav: This would have been my best bet I suppose but I really don't need another controller. I have more then four already.

Thanks guys, looks like best reviewed generic for me.

The receiver? Where do they exist I've been looking. According to this newegg product listing they may not come back in stock....

So I was intrigue about this when I moved from console to pc on skyrim. I did the whole transfer character thing and I must say mods make this game infinitely more enjoyable. I know there are UI mods but I really got used to playing with a controller and I am just more confortable with it. My question is, what exactly is the best way to do that? I know a usb xbox controller works but I don't like wires. Is this the best way to do this? It's third party and seems sometimes you have to do a few work arounds. I can't seem to find a microsoft branded one. Who else has done this and what way did you use?

@Lebensbaum: Haha I agree on every point. Sadly console games will never be pc games and the user created content on consoles will never match pc. I love consoles, but I will concede that pc's just get user created content. One problem I've had with user content on consoles is there is no good way to use it. Sure a forge map can be shared with your friends but that doesn't match a sever list where you pick and play with random people. The craziest pc moment I had(granted I don't have much) was I picked a random counter strike sever and when I got in, it's a 3d representation of the springfield (simpson's town). I want moments like that on a console! Yes I know that was also a custom texture but still.

If they are really serious about forge they should at the very least allow some sort of matchmaking for custom games. That was a feature bungie said they were toying with in the early days of reach(or maybe 3) but it got cut. I've always wanted to try and make a map but why? I have a few friends who play but not enough to make a fun match. Sure I bet my map would be bad but how many people think like me but have that ability to do great things. Give people more of a reason to use those tools and it will attract people who can do great things even with the limited toolset. If custom maps did become bigger part of the game then we will create that mod like community on a console game, something that hasn't really been done before. That would a great thing. I'm sure none of this will happen but a boy can dream.

Like a lot of things in Reach, Forge World in the end backfired. Obviously the sheer size of the play space is impressive, but as far as map editing goes, it isn't really conducive to building precise level designs on a custom scale. No matter what you want to create, the game will have to load the entire Forge World map for every player (even if you're using just a slight portion) plus most of the time there's just too much screen lag from all the objects merged together.

Those maps were just awfully designed and dull to play, especially The Cage.

Forge World, the default bloom settings, and the fact that Reach shipped with the worst selection of Halo maps in the franchise's history made it a real tragedy in the long run. I just hope that Bungie's experiment with armor abilities proved to 343 that they can't simply throw in new elements, that ultimately break the purity of the sandbox, without thoroughly considering the potential uses/exploits of each new ability within capable hands.

I, unlike most, actually still play halo reach. I live in an apartment and the 4 player split screen is really fun and also the only game I own that supports 4 player split screen well. They have since added some user created maps into the matchmaking and they all seem really well done, and are actually quite a bit fun. Not as much fun as past games maps but more fun then a lot of the reach maps. I agree that they were mostly bad. I've never experienced screen lag and I've played a lot of custom forge maps, although only a few weren't just standard maps. All in all, I wouldn't say forge world backfired, it worked as a good, not overly complicated, console map creator. My real wish would be that you can create maps on a PC and then import them to halo but I doubt that will happen. It is really to bad that all the maps do look the same and if they don't do something about that in 4 then I will be very disappointed. Also they got rid of bloom is some playlists, so they maybe recognized the bloom wasn't a good direction for halo?

I will be a little sad if there is not jetpack, it was really useful to get around but I do recognize that if abused, the game turned into a death from above game on every map, so will not be surprised if it's out. I really want this game to be awesome but I fear that halo may just have ran it's course....

Patrick, one of the first parties needed to make E3 "grow up" are game journalists themselves.

When Destructoid gets to literally go around "chest bumping" booth babes, something's incredibly wrong. Frankly, it makes me embarassed to even like video games when garbage like that is allowed to occur without industry-wide ostracizing.

Also, the glad handing. Yes, you touch on the DMC stripper, but there's also the issue of backstage demos giving out things like food and beer. That's a bribe, plain and simple, and violates basic journalistic ethics.

Destructoid is the spike tv of video games, no class but will be there to pander to dumb people. Food and beer? That's a huge stretch....

Holy crap 9 maps? I hope the base game has enough in it already.

Bungie used to provide hella maps and they were almost all great, hopefully 343 does the same. This looks like a good deal actually. Nine maps is alot although the DLC maps usually were never as good as the original on the disks in my opinion, but I would probably have bought them regardless....stupid halo love.

It's called professionalism.

No, the professional thing to do would have been "hey guys, we like your podcast and all, and wish you nothing but the best, but it just wouldn't make sense for us to host it on our site."

Objectivity is professionalism.

They might as well not review any games from Harmonix, 38 Studios, Double Fine or any number of studios where they have very good friends. I've yet to see their close friendship with Johny V garner any review scores that were better than they deserved.

I don't think people actually look at the facts really. Tron was made by probably one of there closest if not most talked about friends and they took a shit all over tron:evolution on the podcasts.

Really surprised EA convinced Microsoft to allow them to release this DLC/patch for free. Don't MS have some pretty stringent rules regarding this stuff? EA must be suffering a pretty heavy financial loss because of this fiasco.

I'm not sure how much Microsoft has a hand, I remember burnout paradise released something like a gig worth of free and actually fun content. I think at least, maybe I payed for it somewhere down the line so my memory may be mistaken...
