yeah, that demo was awesome! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif It's just too bad I have to wait until November now for more Halo action...

BTW, while I was watching that video, the thought that came to me most was "wow, those guys are nerdier than I am" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Halo 2 is once again my most anticipated game, even though HL2 will no doubt be impressive...

Edit: woohoo! done with finals!!! Now I just need to figure out what I'm gonna do with my life now that I'm graduating...

Yes there was, Halo == hype. Dont buy into the cr@p Bungie/M$ is shoveling out. Halo 2 is clearly NOT the "most anticipated title on any platform." How can a game that utterly sucked have a follow up that is "most anticipated?" I never even bothered to finish halo because it was such a craptastic game. Most anticipated clearly goes to HL2, DIII, and/or STALKER. Halo2 or its eventual sh!tty port isnt even on the radar.

I like Halo for a reason; It's a great game. And you're not going to change my thoughts about it. I don't really care what you say about how Halo is all about Hype and other such stuff. It's not just Hype. It's brillant gameplay. Great Story. Good graphics. Single player and Multiplayer. First person shooter, with vehicles, etc

Instead of posting flame material about a good game, go rant to someone who cares

Such as this guy;

So if i cant convince you that Halo is cr@p, let me turn this thing around. Convince ME that Halo is a worthy game. For me, Crapo, er, i mean Halo fell short on all these areas.

1). Game play.
2). Story.
3). Graphics.
4). Sound.
5). Originality

Care to tell me how Halo is so great in these areas with respect to truly great FPS? Challenge you, yes, i do...

daREAL:

Halo PC was not a great port, I'll give you that much. However, Halo was designed for xbox, and that is the platform HAlo 2 is going to be released on--that's why it's so highly anticipated. I've played both versions, and imo, the xbox version is quite superior.

as far as storyline/gameplay i didn't have a problem with it. the story could have been a little better, sure, but bungie did a great job making it interesting. the gameplay is great, and the multiplayer makes the game worth it. again, i can't speak for the pc version there b/c i never tried mp, but on xbox, it's awesome.

as for your other comments, the graphics are incredible...on xbox. it's nothing to write home about for the pc, that's for sure, and the sound is pretty much so-so for both.

originality...meh; i don't care. i love shooting aliens, mummies, mercs, whatever. as long is there a reasonable story to go along with it, i don't care. i htink they did a good job making the game what it is, and that's why so many people are looking forward to halo 2. i don't think they'll take a chance porting it again, though, because they definitely messed up with the first one. if it's wildly successful again on xbox, leave it on xbox.

btw, from your posts, it sounds like you've only played the pc version of halo. if so, i'd highly recommend trying out the xbox version if you get an opportunity--it really is much better than the pc version, and you might change your opinion a little about halo 2.

enjoy, and thanks for your opinions!!! just remember to keep it civil...

Hey Spike, feel free to call me Homer. I have already had this dicussion with an xboxer (a close friend i should add) and he LOVES halo on xbox and i question his gamer mentality given his opinion of Halo, nonetheless, i have already been through the "craptastic port" discussion. Bad porting aside, to me Halo was still a cr@ppy game. Couldnt hold a flame to half life which came out 6 years ago?

My main gripes with HaloPC are this:

1) copy/paste maps
2) map repitition (its bad enough that Bungie did the copy/paste cr@p, its worse that they did the conquer the map, then GO BACK! WTF is that?! Are the designers at Bungie brain-*effing*-dead or what?).
3) graphics are ****, and framerates still suck!
4) HELLO, is there a story here? By the time i got to general dumba$$ (or whatever his name is) i had NO CLUE WHY THE *EFF* I WAS THERE. Didnt care and i didnt continue playing. Stupid, stupid story. I was not engaged AT ALL. Sheet i didnt even finish the damn thing.

BTW, Kedmeister, i hope you dont expect Halo2 to look like that on a TV because it wont.

Kedmeister, where did you get that pic? The vid i watched only showed up until the explanation of the level, the only fighting was with two people. Where is urs from?

Also, when they say the most anticipated game on any PLATFORM they are right. THe PC is not technically a traditional platform. PLatform=console doesn't it?

Cuz if they mean pc too, they are dead wrong. Both BF2 and DEFINATELY HL2 are more anticipated than halo2. i mean, come on, the most popular online game (and a MOD no less) CS is obviously going to make hl2 more anticipated than HALO! Lol, especially considering the fact that cs team and hl team are workin together to some degree, presumably so that cs ships in package with hl2.

Halo2 will be great. I'm really waiting for it, cuz there isnt any console game better than it, and i love link play with two or four xboxes. Its awesome cuz i got a friend who's dead rich who hasn't got a TV that isnt at least a big screen, and he's got a lot of TVs (one bigscreen, i think four flatscreens, and two HighDef projectors)(just got the new one today, its even better than the old http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif) That's fckin awesome for halo.

But halflife two is gonna be way better than halo. Granted, no console parties, but still it will be better. And battlefield2 will blow HL2 to high hell http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

deREAL, I appreciate your feedback, and on some level, I guess I can agree. However, I truly did enjoy Halo (on the xbox, mind you, not PC so much), and I am definitely looking forward to Halo 2. My only suggestion is that before you say too much in the negative about Halo 2, wait till it comes out and then give it a try...you never know; after you play it, you can truly say whether or not it's "cr@p"

any games which bring a lil joy to ppl r good

i played halo on the pc and my thoughts are:

fun, good game, loved the vehicles... i think it had the best set of opponents in the covenant because of variation and different skills, and i just loved vehicular warfare. like bf only without all the mega expensive expansion packs for a few maps.

i used to start up a 4 man server on geoyrophobia and shout at people to use the attak glider thingy - banshee, right?(been a while) and we would have cool ariel dog fights...

i loved the story, being the only person between the destruction of life on the universe, and the unravelling mysteries of halo and the flood. but the flood was what destroyed halo for me. sure they were "fun" and diffrent at first, adn I liked seeing battles between them and the con... but over and over and over, jus shootin me sum flood.

2 hours later: jus shootin me sum flood.

i got bored of the flood and quit a few levels from the end, when I was on a covenant ship overrun by flood, and I'd dropped down sum dum hole, and there was sum flood. and sum more flood. and then some.

bu when halo2 comes out, ill sure as eck be with my xbox ownin friends and see them console partying it up.

im gonna go checkout the e3 demo now that im done talkin bout teh halo http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

lol i've tried playing through it a few times now, and every time i quit on the library level...the flood just get too annoying after that long. despite that, halo is definitely one of the best (console!) games i've ever played, and i can't wait till halo2!!!!

halo is an xbox game. they tried it on pc cause they thought they could make the game run better on pc than xbox. i will try halo 2 if it comes out on pc. im not a console guy. i have played halo on xbox and it was pretty good and would prolly be the same on pc if they fix the bugs it had, or have halo on pc as a learning experience so if they decide to export halo 2 on pc then i could be better. im not saying it will be good or bad just that i have to play it to make up my mind.

Everytime I see the word "meh" I think of that South Park episode where Kyle kept ragging on Cartman for saying "Hell'ah".

Anyways, the level design in Halo was weak due to the time crunch on having to be a launch tytle. To think that they didn't have that hanging over them makes me very eager to see what they do with Halo 2. I just wish it was a PC game first and an X-Box game second.

Halo was still the first fast paced 3-D shooter I played where the AI could loose sight of you and had to actualy look around for you.

I saw how they did this at the Game Developers Conference when they ran the game in debug mode showing how the AI keeps track of things. It was simple, elegant and briliant. Probably not a big deal now with the amount of processing power available.

wagon... wouldnt halo2 have the same amount of processing power as halo 1 did, since its on the same exact system... the hardware hasnt changed over the past years... bungie is brilliant at what they do... i loved the first halo, even if you do backtrack through some levels later on... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Poorly written on my end sorry. I was thinking how the AI level of games has shot up recently like in FarCry and they're probably doing much more sophisticated ways of having the AI react to you, so my statement was a general one.

Basicly what I saw was the infamous beach scene where the two drop ships set you and a squad down on a beach (archive level I believe) and there's a hord of The Covenant waiting for you.

The debug mode showed different colored lines. Blue was for sight, red for hearing and green for memory (or some color combination like that). The computer simply drew lines from each entity to each other entity it was aware of through one or more of those means. If something got between you and the blue line then you where out of it's sight. If something too loud went off near a bad guy then all there would be is a blue and green line, or just a green line, etc.

There was a very funny segment when the Bungie guy was talking about when they implented the behaviour of the little guys running away if one of the big guys they where crowding around dropped. The speaker said something along the lines of..

"...So we play tested and found out in the heat of combat no one was noticing this. So we went back and coded it so that the little guy flailed their arms around and ran away. No one noticed this. So then we made it so that the little guys screamed, flailed their armsa round and ran away. No one noticed this. FINALY we made it so that the little guys stop what they're doing, yell out "OH NO THE BIG GUY IS *DEAD*!!!", flail their arms around and run away. Some people noticed this."
