Hired Gun

Little is known thus far of the team developing Halo 2 for Windows Vista. We're about to change all that for you. We take a brief look at the members of [i]Hired Gun[/i], the team handling the bulk of H2V's development.

  • first of all, when they are saying 60Hz, i hope they mean 60 fps, which is still not a prefered number by any computer gamer. id software pulled it off in q4 because the gameplay is still very smooth at the maximum fps of 60, so i'm assuming h2v is going to be somewhat like that. now, if they really do mean 60Hz, i have no idea why that would be their favorite part. 60Hz can be damaging to the eyes after prolonged experiences of looking at a monitor; not to mention the ghosting effect that can occur with a low frequency, commonly seen on lcd monitors with high response times. 85Hz and up is ideal for computer gamers with 120Hz being optimal. i'm kind of confused by what exactly they mean, but let's hope they are talking about a capped fps of 60 and that we will be able to change our refresh rate. also, everything seems to be graphics this, and high res graphics that. all anyone talks about is graphics. being bungie studios and all, and me being a long time bungie fan all the way back to marathon and the myth series, i'm sure you know that gameplay >>> graphics. i just hope a good netcode and near infinite gameplay will be present in the final release like any game that bungie makes.

  • Looks like they'll make a good team, and I'm really looking forward to the game, even if they're using a clever marketing strategy to get me to waste money on another computer just to play the game. And, I thought it was only the Microsoft [i]operators[/i] who couldn't speak English. o_O

  • I love how with halo 2 vista it's all about the graphics and high res graphics, net code and weapon balance issues still haven't been discussed, but bungie? Who cares right?

  • Good luck guys. I doubt you need luck with all the talent experience and resources on this project. But, anyway, I thought it sounded nice to say "good luck." Maybe more appropriately... Have fun! But, then again, how can you NOT have fun working on Halo? OK, here's my final thought: [b]Keep up the good work! ! ![/b]

  • So Bungie is, once again, just overseeing the project, huh? I also thought these guys came from Microsoft Game Studios, as mentioned many months ago in an update, and how they were 8+ year veterans who had worked on Doom 2, Brute Force, Might & Magic, and Forza Motorsport. You also said the team was closely tied with the Microsoft Game Studios TnT team. Well, let's hope this doesn't turn out to be a fiasco when it comes to netcode. How about giving them some more line to let them do their thing this time around, Bungie? [Edited on 10/26/2006]
