Halo 3 has always felt like a garbage mud monster when it came to multiplayer. Fantastic campaign, abysmal multiplayer. People loved it, but there's a reason why CoD4 was so popular.  :lol

I liked both. But Halo 3's atrocious netcode (AR run up->melee wack! TRADE KILLS!) was the biggest reason I dropped it for CoD4, beyond liking CoD4's maps, P90/modern weapons. CoD4's biggest stumbling block is the infamous 2xFrags (or Flash), 2xRPG (or was this a Perk1?), Stopping Power, Martyrdom and Bombing Runs/Airstrike.

Made playing the maps spawn, die, spawn, die, spawn, die. Which Halo didn't have (until these PC ports it seems. :/).

I still vastly enjoyed CoD4 enough to buy it on PCS360 and the remake on Steam despite that being dead because LOL NO SERVERS LOL. So I can't complain. :yeshrug

Halo 3 was a great game when it released. Very few games managed to handle large scale battles as well as that game did. Especially in the campaign.
On PC it seems the FOV is expanded to 120, which makes for a big improvement.

I'm not seeing the appeal of playing these old games in multiplayer though.

It’s gonna be 2025 before they fix Halo 3. I wish 343i would just take their time with this shit, having a flight and it out in a couple of weeks after with them bullshitting saying “it’s fixed this time guys honest” just further damages the games, Lord only knows what H5 is going to launch like. I wish we got a remaster of H3 instead of this trash.

Deffo will be playing the hell out of it when it works though as Halo 3 was my shit back in the day

Halo 3 is supposedly launching on the 14th of this month/July. We'll see how "bug-free" it is on launch.

I still need to get that Easter Egg in co-op on Reach so I can finish Reach's camapign. :lol :lol :lol :lol :-\ :'(

I'm nearly done with Halo 2's campaign, but man: Playing the campaigns now a days is a chore IMO. The star of the series and the most popular way of playing it is the multiplayer.

Disagree completely, single player FPS campaigns like Halo's don't exist anymore. You can play dozens of multiplayer shooters that scratch that itch.

I played thru Halo 1 thru Reach on legendary this year. Halo 2 was the campaign has been the weakest. Halo 1, 3, and Reach were excellent experiences.

Sandbox puzzle combat is something Bungie got right. 343 can make ok multiplayer maps and design decisions, but single player from 343?  :lol

Yup.  Never cared about the campaign stuff- always went for multiplayer.  Halo 3 campaign with 4P was fun for a few playthroughs though.

Finished Halo 2's campaign and Easter Eggs/skulls. Now I just have to mop up a few situational ones (Complete Metropolis on foot on Heroic/Legendary, "Needs More Whammy Bar") and then I can probably dump the Campaign's installation/file-size out the airlock and keep just the multiplayer.

I dunno if I want to do the campaign L.egendary A.ll S.kulls O.n (LASO) Apparently the skulls count for the "Beat the campaign on Legendary" achievement, but you lose shields, you have to melee enemies to regain them, you have the Scarab gun which can backfire in close-combat situations... etc. Just seems like a really annoying complication, but probably easier than doing it on Combat Evolved (since there's no Scarab Gun there?)

I still need to do that Reach easter egg, so I should probably bother Ghoul. :doge

I have absolutely no faith in 343, and yet somehow I think there's a chance they have made decent multiplayer given that it is at this moment the most expensive videogame ever produced.

Is Halo Infinite going to be the next Fortnite or the next Rise of the Skywalker?

Well 3 is out. But I'm waiting on Death Strandings Pre-load to unlock and boot that up to check performance/etc. before going to bed to where I'll have to check Halo 3 tomorrow.

Wait and see on how buggy it is.

Edit: Oh, wait:

Secondary Weapons do not reload in Halo 3 while dual wielding. Halo 3 introduced per-weapon reloading (compared to Halo 2, which only had a single reload action for both weapons). Both Controller and M/K support this by having the “reload” functions on separate keys. Check the “controls” page for your input of choice to find out where it is bound (on M/K, this is defaulted to the “F” key, but can be rebound).

Throwing equipment or a grenade in multiplayer sometimes results in multiple objects to be thrown. Our team is aware of this and continuing to investigate potential causes and fixes for when this occurs. We hope to have more on this in the future.

The weekly challenge "deck" giving you season pass (ugh) unlock points so you don't have to grind EXP/levels to get all of them anymore. #thankyou343 :rejoice

Though this "season" is just Halo:CE skins (WTF) and banners (:beli )

Get to rank 100 in the first season pass. With the "unlock your way" on the pass now, once you reach the last "tier" (10) of the Nobel pass, you can just skip to the end to unlock the Legendary/Bungie flames.

Firefight Doubles. Unless they finally removed it. Then Firefight Arcade and killing faster than the other 3 players.

During 2XP. Which will be 3XP next week.

3XP is worthless when the XP gain on level-up doesn't give you season points anymore. :beli

It's only worth doing the orange 3 for the weeklys.

Nevermind, someone helped me and I finished the campaign.

What's funny is that they left in the middle of it, so I finished the level on Legendary and got the Legendary co-op achievement from it. :lol :dead

Matchmaking continues to be busted. Either it takes five minutes or twenty. They're supposedly doing cross-play with X-box/console in the ODST update(? IIRC) but I doubt it's going to do too much for the shitty matchmaking (BTFO rounds or takes forever) right now.

A tragedy in three acts:

*sitting in Warthog at spawn as everyone Lemmings the bomb, sneak the bomb to the site nearly by myself by taking the left [thank you to the teammate that mentioned that], fail to arm..., finally have enough and grab the Mongoose*



*start traveling, Spartan Laser shows up, balls to the wall speed*



*teammate bails as I hit the wall and the Spartan Laser doesn't hit us*



"Why the fuck would you get off?"
"Did you not see the laser, you bot?"
"OH NOES WE DIE! The bomb stays where it drops when you die."
"What the fuck does that mean?"

Fucking distinguished mentally-challenged fellow.

ODST seems solid so far. Probably the first port that is pretty much flawless.

But it only has campaign and firefight, so obviously it HAD to turn out good. :lol

Users who are at non-16:9 aspect ratios, extended FOV, and/or centered crosshair will occasionally see through the ODST’s body at certain angles.

Often, repeating voice effects can be heard from either Covenant enemies or player actions.

Quote from: Firefight bugs
Phantom becomes stuck on the environment, blocking match progression.

The inclusion of our new expanded game modes exposed this as a legacy bug in title (likely as Halo 3: ODST Firefight in Legacy never expected troopers with infinite-ammo rocket launchers!)
We’ve resolved this in the interim by removing game variants where this exploit is easily reproducible on impacted maps (Fiestafight, Rocketfight, etc.), however this will still be possible in custom games.

...Just take infinite ammo out? :dead I mean, it's a nice feature to have but if Bungle never intended it for the mode...

Got into the Insider for Halo 4.

Maybe I shouldn't be surprised, but I'm shocked at how much I hate the gameplay feel, enemy AI plus their looks, goofy/over-designed armour aesthetics, pointless hitmarkers, the bloom effect, honestly almost everything about it. The (better?) narrative and visuals don't make up for these shortcomings at all.

While everything else on MCC has mostly been a blast to play through, I can definitely accept the flak 343 cops on the regular. Bonnie and Stinkles being thrown down that shaft near the start of Assault on the Control Room when?

I only really played Halo 1 on the OG which rocked so I tried 3,4 and ODST on Xbox One X and they are all doodoo stuck in 2000 gameplay.

The campaign feels so clunky jeeeeebus.

I guess there is plenty of kids that grew up on this so they will keep milking it but this series is dead unless it can reinvent itself.
