Halo 2 Vista Articles

All of these are from CES 2007: [url=http://www.shacknews.com/extras/2007/011007_halo2_pc_1.x]Shacknews[/url] [url=http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/halo2/news.html?sid=6163892]Gamespot[/url] [url=http://www.gametrailers.com/cgplayer.php?id=16167]Game Trailers[/url] (Beaver creek) [url=http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=16174&type=mov&pl=game]Game Trailers[/url] (Beaver Creek Round 2) [url=http://www.gametrailers.com/cgplayer.php?id=16175]Game Trialers[/url] (Sanctuary) [url=http://gamevideos.com/video/id/8362]Game Videos Sanctuary[/url] [url=http://gamevideos.com/video/id/8363]Game Videos Beaver Creek[/url] [url=http://www.futurelooks.com/photopost/showgallery.php/cat/528]Future Looks[/url] Photo gallery [url=http://farm1.static.flickr.com/124/350972660_cf7bfa6cdf.jpg?v=0]One lonely picture[/url] [url=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m315/iAtty/halo2.jpg]Pre-game Lobby[/url] Shacknews posted that the auto aim will be the same from the Xbox version [i]if you choose to use a 360 controller[/i], which is some good news... From what I can tell in the videos, H2V looks sharper, and the MC's look alot better... Although, when they die, they look a bit weird :S [Edited on 1/20/2007]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] specopsgrunt11 Looks as though some of the textures were not quite ironed out yet... oh well. As for the difference between the 360 controller for windows and standard mouse and keyboard, I am sure they are going to put in a lot of effort in order to make it somewhat equal. As for the text and voice issue, I presume it will be fairly similar to that of Counter Strike where you can choose whichever form floats your boat. I hope that it comes out soon, or Bungie releases some more info at least! p.s. who the heck ARE those n00bs????[/quote]Some lucky bastards who don't even deserve to play it. As far as I'm concerned, unless they add an unfair god-like auto-aim system for controllers, the mouse and keyboard will dominate, like it should.

There had better be a way to disable that server side. Oh, and did I see some HDR effects in there? I swear to god I see some bloom adjustment when going from dark to light areas. Dynamic Tone Mapping? [Edited on 2/4/2007]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ralex [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HaloPlaya4Eva Uhm. Did anyone notice the guy had a speaker icon on the screen? Now I'm not sure on this but I thought H2V didn't support voice? I'm thinking this is the Xbox version. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The gameplay is HORRIBLE but if that's for the computer it looks pretty good. [/quote] Bungie said that the players could now use voice OR text. Just telling you. The majority might use headphones, but it doesn't really matter[/quote]I'll be chatting away by text once H2 Vista comes out. I don't feel like using my microphone. I wonder if the text will appear on the left-center of the screen like in the first game--they'll need to make another disable text modification or add a feature to disable text in-game if machinimists don't want the text to appear in their films.

  • It's really quite easy to tell which videos they're using xbox controllers and which theyre using keyboard and mouse...just pay attention when he's standing over a gun on the ground. Unless of course the Xbox controller somehow has an E button on it...or the X on the keyboard is round and blue. Both of which I doubt. :P And those guys suck SO bad. Awesome vids though, cant wait for some sort of news from the big guys about it. (particularly a release date)

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BF33 Anyone know if we can use the 360 headsets or computer mics?[/quote]Of course! If you even watched the videos closely, you can see the voice icon on the bottom right corner of the screen occasionally, showing that someone is speaking through a microphone.

  • if you plug in a mic into the 360 controller, the computer actually uses the controller's drivers as an audio source too, so yeah, the only downside is that you have to configure the audio to come out ur speakers and not the one on the headset..

  • Heyyo, Definately great finds! Kudos to OP! =D The jump distance seemed uber high, and nade throwing looked really nerfed as they flew near your guy's feet, lol. sadly I did see some lunging in at least 1 vid... darn. Hopefully it doesn't autoaim like a mofo though.... there's no mention to how bad the autoaim is for the controllers just that they do indeed exist..

  • Everything is looking so awesome! Especially the maps! But the weapons still need some brushing up and finish touches. The Shotgun looks AWFUL

  • yea for real it was going really good in the beginning, got a lot of good info...but then it just died down is halo 2 vista coming out sometime in february? or a demo? you guys also should release more information about the Map Editor for Halo 2 Vista. these videos are nice and all but, its not like we are seeing anything we havent seen before. really high resolution halo 2, wow amazing. i want to see some of the unique PC features, how finding servers will work, how dedicated servers will work, how the map maker works, all that kinda good stuff.

  • I love Halo PC, but I just can't put myself through another game where cheating is tolerated online. Bungie is committed to stopping cheating on XBL, I wonder if it will be the same for H2V. We all know that Bungie didn't do the original Halo PC port. The same is true for H2V. I'm just worried that history will repeat itself. I would like to see Bungie "put it all on the table" so to speak and reassure us about cheating, and fairness across the board (xbox controller autoaim) before I decide to purchase the game.

  • Wow, total nubs in those vids... lol. It looks like Halo 1's crouch style is back, look about 2/3 in [url=http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=16174&type=mov&pl=game]this vid[/url] after the guy tries to whack someone with his sniper and gets killed.
