I like using stealth class. Its cool you can tap into old halo2 style and over hear their voice chat if you're close to an enemy.

Its very easy to just crouch and hide in a room and notice when someone is comming, to hit stealth and hold position... a team of 4 using these tactics could make people go insane.

However I really like Elite gametype Covy's! The roll move is pretty cool and that is what I thought they should have done in the first place since halo 2, make aliens play different then spartans, I would hope they add brutes and maybe grunts and jackals to the mix, it would just be fun times.

Stockpile on powerhouse is super lame at the moment, I like the concept however it needs to be redone. Red team ALWAYS gets fucked over, its the easiest to get to, all you have to have on is a jetpack.

This. I ALWAYS have to play hardcore modes or whatever or a shooter isn't fun to me. One of the biggest flaws of the other Halo games and iirc Halo 3's SWAT or MLG or whatever playlist still let you take too much damage.

just bought the box set (3 books) from chapters, time to do some reading on my snow day

great call. The fall of reach is a great little scifi book. My buddy did a book report on it way back in highschool but only read the back of the book and then just made stuff up based off of what he knew from the halo game.

Damn they can put together an informative and interesting video. It was like watching Archer on FX but the content was all halo based. <3 aisha

Well, I have been continuing to play the game and have been having a blast. 4 player coop on one screen is always fun and its nice to be able to take yourself and 3 friends ONLINE. Seriously, i have such hate for mp fps games that ONLY let 1 player play. Not even being able to get two to play is freaking absurd.

Today is also the invasion update. Dunno when I'll be able to play it tonight but I should get some time in and will update on my thoughts afterward.

I have been using the sprint loadout a ton with spattering of jetpack when playing swordbase (the verticl one). I also feel the loadouts have made ctf games and the odder games more fun.

after too much time playing halo 3 i really developed hatred for the game and the series.... but after watching the reach gameplay im starting to want to get this lol. idk what it is but it looks like it has more depth with the armor perks.

oh yeah did they take out the deployable stuff like bubble shields and grav lifts?

all the deployable stuff is gone, your amour abilities make up for them.

The 6v6 invasion gametype with spartans vs elites is a good amount of fun. I have yet to get tired of the different combinations the armour abilities + strategies that allow the player to kick ass in a number of different ways. Very cool.

If halo didnt have co op I probably would never even play it, its just not that good imo. The alien race is kinda boring, the halo rings and story behind them is fairly interesting but its just stuff stolen from Niven and his Ringworld series...which has a more interesting mythos anyway. Decent games but nothing to write home about, I am sure this one will be decent as well.

The beta was good, but nothing ground breaking imo. If you love the Halo series, you will like it.
