Halo 4 recieved its first TU today.

It did the following -Added the last strike medal and final killcam -Tweaked the super nade glitch -Fixed the boltshot insta reload glitch -And fixed the haven initial ordanance drop issue. Moar TU's are said to be on the way. While I hate having been sold a beta, at least 343 isn't sitting on their asses not trying to fix it. So i guess that sorta makes up it. Almost. How bout you, flood?

Not to say that Halo 4 was crap, just that it could have been polished more and the final product just felt rushed and thrown together. [/quote] 343i stated numerous times that they didn't have the time or resources for a beta, and I'm assuming that it's because they are a company created and directly owned by Microsoft, as such they have to adhere to what they say. They wanted Halo 4 at a certain date, 343i realized that they didn't have enough resources given to them for a public beta, and so they had to play test it out the ass. Unfortunately, in-development play-testing doesn't take care of certain exploits.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] VitalHalofreak [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MrMassakka That's all? So basically... they did nothing?[/quote]They said they are going to make quite a few TU's. Think about it like this, this game is only a month old, and it already got a TU. Halo 3 on the other hand, didn't get a TU for 8 months (correct me if i'm wrong) I think 343 will support this game well. Now they just gotta fix the other things...[/quote] Yeah because Halo 3 had a beta, so a lot of problems were found before the game went gold, unlike halo 4.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ROBERTO jh As I said, this was a functionality update, not a sandbox update. They're working on that one now. It's easier to squash bugs than too fine tune gameplay.[/quote] If you say it's easier, but I personally would prefer them to fix enraging issues rather than adding in a last kill and final killcam function.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] hispanicman15 That has to be lamest update I have ever heard. (minus supernade) No nerfing the mantis No nerfing the boltshot No nerfing the DMR [/quote] These don't be to be nerfed. Get killed by these things alot? Find a way to counter it, don't just whine because you keep getting killed by them.

  • They fixed it where if you entered a code, then everyone could use the item. I couldn't use my limited edition items because the code was already used.

Guess each subsequent title update is going to cost 343 a ton of money. Sucks to be them.[/quote] Huh?[/quote]Microsoft let's developers update their game with a title update once, and after that, they charge their developers when they want to update their game with a patch.[/quote] I don't think Microsoft will charge themselves.[/quote]Bungie had to pay to put out patches I think. I'm not entirely familliar with the concrete details of the policy, only that it screws over indy developers who want to implement ten lines of code to fix a save corruption problem that affects only 1% of the population.[/quote] FEZ :(

  • Because Halo 4 needed MORE medals... Seriously, this game is filled to the brim with instant gratification as it is.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Garrux [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NINJA BUNNY 117 Did they make Thruster Pack slightly faster? It felt faster when I played today.[/quote]I hope so. After how useful it was in campaign it felt completely pointless the first time I used it in matchmaking.[/quote]Idk, I love thrusters, it's saved my life numerous times though yh it probably should have some increase in speed over sprint.
