So it's 5:30am and I don't want to wake anyone up. Halo 3 melees make me want to punch something irl.

I swear, the game would be insanely fun if it weren't for: ME hitting someone square in the back of the head, HEARING the impact, SEEING the blinky effect, then DYING because somehow he turned around and got me first.

Punch a pillow or something - or, if just hitting them doesn't work, either shoot/grenade stick them straight afterwards. If you have time

Oh, and for God's sake go to bed willya! Ah, I don't know...

ive seen it happen sometimes too, usually the person lags and somehow gets behind u like neo from the matrix and pops u in the head. i just remember to set my priority to "good connection" rather than "close skill level". I just threw a sticky grenade "through" someone. he mustve been a ghost http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I think most of us have been there, and can feel your pain... lag/latency really makes me want to scream sometimes (for example last night on Construct I crouch jumped/sword lunged a guy twice... saw my sword conect/go through him both times... and he didn't die, 6 shots from his AR and a beat down and I'M dead! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif ).

Bungies new melee system is partly to blame of course to, if both people melee within a certain window, the person with most heealth ALWAYS wins even if they melee later *Aaaaaarrrrrr!*. It seems Bungie are looking at changing it though so fingers crossed. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

PS: Pyra if your playing on a low look sensitivity you might want to try turning it up a notch, which would allow you to react a little bit faster http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif , wont help you much against horrible lag but still http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif .

I've heard about how the new melee system works. I can understand why they went this way, even if it doesn't always work.

Try to use it to your advantage. Getting mad will only make you feel worse. Or...blame lag.

I so hate when I get a misleading blinky effect.

The better solution is to eject H3 from the tray. Then insert COD4 into the tray. Go Knife n00bz, with your always sharp blade. Enjoy watchig them bleed when you carve them up. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I'm getting to be a little over Halo 3. I still fire it up every morning with my coffee but it's seemed to have lost it's sense of community for me. Must... still... play... I don't get it.

its always good to hit someone directly in the chest with the spartan laser and somehow it leaves them untouched but ur friend behind him gets lasered into oblivion.

Pyra, you need to remember that Bungie also implements the system of the person with the highest health to win when both punch within a short period of time. Now by short, I mean within a half second. Most likely, you or he was lagging a tad, enough to the point where you were fooled while he saw you and also punched.

The Xbox 360 needs an eject button like the Super NES did. I remember playing Final Fantasy II and I kept dying on the four fiends battle. I got up and with only the index finger of my right hand, punched down the eject switch as hard as I could.

Those games sure could fly. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've got a hole or two in my wall from "Halo rage." It's therapeutic. I also rant to myself.

"Would I get that f**king melee? Of course not! I'd get two shotted in the head before I even turned out but his friggin' ping he gets the melee what a bunch of f**king BS I can't believe it I hate this game"

Then I go back to playing and go +12.

I feel your pain Cella. Between anger-inducing Halo 3 matches and games like CoD4 and Assassin's Creed sitting on my desk, I just don't bother with H3 anymore.


Perhaps when 2008 rolls around, when I've finished Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect, and when CoD4 and Rock Band lose their luster, then maybe H3 will find it's way out of the box and into my 360 again.

OF course, FFXI: Wings of the Goddess comes out soon too. Must... resist...

Halo brings out the worst in me for this reason http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Couple that with some very competitive friends and you end up with an angry Redcoat. Don't think I could ever be a pro gamer cause of the rage it brings out in me, and no game does this more than Halo

Some of you take games way way too seriously! Unless it's your job of course. Still, don't be getting too stressed - I hear it's a killer

I once punched a window (phew, I almost left out the all-important N there!) with just enough force to put cracks in it without shredding my hand to ribbons. And you know what? It ****ing hurt! You know what else? I can't remember why I did it...

That's always good for a rant or two. I could only play H3 for a week before I had to go back to GRAW2, I just can't hit someone who's jumping like a grasshopper on meth.
