Weekly Update Q&A Spectacular!

The latest Weekly Update consists of questions submitted by our readers and answers from Frankie and myself. For the next hour, we'll be going through the questions that were gathered in the news forum and answering what we can in this thread. Let the fun begin! [i]This thread is now open to discussion. Post away![/i] And, just because this isn't a normal weekly update doesn't mean there isn't a Mister Chief drawing. Here he is, straight from Frankie's laptop.

  • I don't get it, both ign and gamespot have declared that there is ragdoll physics in effect with the latest version of Halo 2 and yet after watching the new videos it seems as though there are the same death animations as in Halo CE

  • warwolf117 you sure like talking to yourself. yea what i said about "reconsidering buying halo 2" was from the shock of finding out that they really actually were going to take out the health bar. i take it back im still going to buy it at midnight when the gamestop opens. i overreacted sorry. and no it truly makes it harder to kill someone. but it makes dual weilding plasma pistols your best bet in a fire fight.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] warwolf117 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] halo2willpwnu why take out the health bar. WTF thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard entire life. im seriuosly reconsidering buy halo 2 now. the health bar just adds this HUGE dynamic to the game its like taking out the music.[/quote] go right the -blam!- ahead. i'll be enjoying the greatest game ever crafted while you wish you would have followed through with your preorder. you're just one less jackass to listen to on live... i guess i should thank you.[/quote] oh ho, whats this? looks to me like you heard that the health bar was taken out. now were you too stupid to realize that when you played it and became such an expert, and someone had to explain to you later that the little notches representing health were missing, therefore no healthbar is in the game? or is it what i believe is more plausible, that your a lying sack of -blam!- that just wants to -blam!- about something and rant anonymously? which is it?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] halo2willpwnu Well, you can throw that feeling down the drain cause i've played it and I WOULD love to have it another way. Im not going to hate the game if they dont change it but if i let bungie know that i think it would be better that way then i have a right to let them know that. Now stfu you n00b, and yes you are taking it to personally.[/quote] somehow i doubt very seriously that you've played it at all, and if you have, im sure it was just 10 minutes of multiplayer at some event open to the public, not the single player version at all, which is what youre -blam!-ing about being too easy. now, as for your tendency to throw that stupid "n00b" word out, youre going to have to do better than that. im going to chew you up and spit you out on live, mark my words. put me on your friends list, my gt is the same name i go by here. we'll play some matches and i'll take some pictures of the postgame carnage report and post them on the forums, and maybe that will finally get you to stfu. bow out or bow down, -blam!-boy.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] halo2willpwnu WarWolf you're soo -blam!- stupid and you take what i say about the game WAY to personaly its just a game. And everyone has an opinion on it. And mine is the health bar should stay wether is does or not i have 0 control over but im not gonna -blam!- and moan if it doesnt. The only reason i am now is cause it could still be changed if bungie gets enough bad feed back on their decision.[/quote] im smart enough to realize that bungie knows best, -blam!-. when i first heard this announcement i was pissed but i got a feeling once i play it i wouldnt havent any other way. you have a right to speak your opinion but if your opinion is retarded i reserve the right to get all over your ass. its not a matter of me taking what youre saying "WAY to personaly" its a matter of my not being able to stand stupidity. and my love of being a smartass bastard to people who cant understand me with my big words and my small, difficult ones. heh.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] UberMatt15 [ I completely, 100% agree with you. For Example: I have Max Payne 2 and The rag doll physics make every time through a completely different experience. It all depends on where you hit them, with what weapon, how many times, etc. and it's just so satisfying to shoot someone in the leg and have them flip over and fall flat on their face, or get shot in the head and fall down a hole while bouncing off stuff. It's awesome and I totally agree with you. I seriously hope this question along with mine (Level of Gore and/or dismemberment?) gets answered because I have OXM and I'm always checking updates so those are the only questions I can think of.[/quote] Yeah Max Payne 2 had awesome rag doll physics, the game with arguably the best rag doll physics is psi ops(a close runner up being rainbow six 3)

  • No it actually makes it harder to die. Because before u could only take a few hits now you still can only take a few. Maybe one-two less hits (from an AR/SMG), BUT now when you're shields recharge you get full health again making much easier to stay alive.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] halo2willpwnu ur such n00bs im still goin to buy it but without the health bar it wont be teh best game ever. Half-Life 2 will. also even if u have full health a gold elite will kill u with one hit from its plasmo sword anyway. no health is for n00bs. or people who just plain suck ass at video games. if u have to be invicible to have fun playing a game then ur a -blam!-![/quote] You shouldn't be ripping on the poor noobs considering that you're complaining about the fact that the Master Chief won't have any health. And who bases the success of a game on a little health bar? Basically, if you take only a few hits you're gonna be dead which makes it more challenging because any time your shield goes down you're pretty much screwed.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Big D 21 You mean there is no rag doll physics at all, or just that there is no corpse abuse. I actually believe that in an article from gamespot, definite rag doll physics were mentioned, but perhaps they have a newer version? There is really no excuse for this game to not have rag doll physics and still attempt to be so revolutionary, it may not matter to some or most people, but it is a very important aspect of any game in my opinion. Every shooter should have rag doll physics, it is almost unaccaptable not to.[/quote] I completely, 100% agree with you. For Example: I have Max Payne 2 and The rag doll physics make every time through a completely different experience. It all depends on where you hit them, with what weapon, how many times, etc. and it's just so satisfying to shoot someone in the leg and have them flip over and fall flat on their face, or get shot in the head and fall down a hole while bouncing off stuff.
