Beta in FOUR days, and game release in five months!!! Discuss biggrin.gif
ffman
Ready for the beta!

You can play as long as you have ODST, correct?
Zimbow
Not playing beta, not playing beta, not playing beta...... etc

I have been telling myself this the past couple months. I never played the beta for Halo 3, nor will I give in and play this one. I will suck it up and wait til September release.
ffman
Too bad the beta starts on Monday. sad.gif

I might try a little Halo 3 this weekend for a change though.
metsfan2427
Can't wait for Monday

I never got the whole Halo thing... I was never too impressed with it. It seemed very redundant to me.
Zimbow
What's really bad/sad is that Microsoft yanked Halo 2 from online services. Although there wasn't a huge fan base for 2 anymore, it was still a change to pop it in and play it.

It gets really old when people say that Halo is a legendary FPS. It is popular, and that is it. It is not a revolution, and spawned nothing new for the gaming world.

It didn't change much. but it really helped started online multiplayer on consoles.
Zimbow
Halo 2 hit it big on consoles in '04...The first Halo was good for local games and system linking. It did it's job for the console FPS. As far as great FPS goes, Counterstrike gets my bid. smile.gif
ffman
Halo revolutionized the multiplayer FPS on consoles. The first expanded upon what Goldeneye and Perfect Dark started for the N64, while Halo 2 gave a huge boost to online play.
cardinal
I personally think Halo "revolutionized" nothing. It was a simple FPS that became big because it was the best (and one of the only) FPS' at the time that supported online play so it blew up because Live was just starting to become very popular.
metsfan2427
Today is the day

Sadly the beta will only last 17 days

Man I loved goldeneye back then, that game was awesome

Haven't played Halo since the first one, but this one i will be getting
metsfan2427
Lets give Bungie a hand. Not even 4 hrs into the beta and the servers already crashed
Bravesfan10
44% downloaded. Should be done when I get back home in a few hours!
Zimbow
When does Reach even take place? After H3 or before H1 and H2

I think before Halo 1
ffman
Haha....crashed already.

Hopefully it will be fixed by Wednesday night.
metsfan2427
Didn't get to play a game today. Due to the long load times. And every time i got into the game it wouldn't load the maps.
metsfan2427
Really loving Halo Reach. Way better than halo 3
Bravesfan10
First impressions:

Pros: Sprinting, STOCKPILE, new and improved needler and magnum, better graphics, maps (so far),

Undecided: Active Camo, jetpacks, reticule widening

Cons: Frag nades are WAY overpowered, fall damage is pointless and annoying, armor lock, no battle rifle sad.gif

So far, I still like halo 3 better, but Reach is still alot of fun!
metsfan2427
The more i play. The more i feel bungie is going the same way IW went. Great platform and idea. Just to noobie and flawed. I know its just the beta. But a ton of things need to be fixed.
ffman
Man, I didn't care for the BR much in Halo 3 but I find myself missing it here.

I actually enjoy Team SWAT with the DMR; I never tried the mode much in Halo 3.

I am getting tired of the same ole' maps over and over again. I'm undecided.
RaiderNation
Not necessary at all. Thanks. I see you play battlefield 2, how can you go from that to HALO. COD is the only FPS that is worth a ........
\p.s. pposting a kill death ratio under 1 is very noble lol.
ffman
Lol at the need to call it edit!.

It's a game, if you don't like it - fine. But don't get all over other people for enjoying it.
metsfan2427
People this is a topic to talk about Halo reach. If you want to go start flame wars please go some were else.

I have to agree, Cody. I'm undecided right now. I probably will get it since my friends will be playing it along with new COD. At first i was really excited for it. But as i played more i saw that it not as great as i thought.

I really wish they put more maps in the beta. 2 just isn't enough to get a good feel for the game.

Folks i'm not sure what people have problems reading thread titles. This is not a thread for flaming or hating on consoles this is for Halo Reach only. If you don't like it please post what you don't like in a civil manner.

I'm not sure what to think of Reach anymore.
Bravesfan10
I'm not a HUGE reach fan so far, but you have to keep in mind that this is still a beta. There will be more maps, playlists, CUSTOM GAMES smile.gif, forge, campaign, etc. I'll still buy it the day it comes out, but I don't think I'll ever like it more that Halo 3.
Bravesfan10
Soooo, who's seen the new Forge World vidoc? I must say, I'm now about 10x more excited for this game biggrin.gif
killerhawkeye21
In recent news I wanted to play some MLG matchmaking on H3 and my xbox is red ringed. Yeah im mad haha. Excited to play Reach!

Yeah I used to be pretty into H3 MLG and pretty good at it too (local tourneys, etc). I dont know how much I want to play Reach as much as I just want it because i'm a big Halo fan haha
metsfan2427
Only 10 days till reach. I decided to go ahead and get. Can't wait to play it
Cades
Will probably pick this up, haven't played Halo since it came out on xbox.
Zimbow
Yep, will be at the midnight release, but will arrive around 12:30....Don't feel like listening to the jibber jabber. Playing Co op campaign all night though with couple friends. Can't wait to see what we're getting into! smile.gif

Anyone up for some Reach tonight (around 10:15-10:30 PM Central)?

Zimbow
I would definitely be down to game, but I have work at 9pm-5am eastern time. I'll be on most of the afternoon on Sunday though.
