  • The only problem with limiting multiplayer to 16 players is that large maps like Containment feel so empty, even when you've got 8-10 vehicles driving/flying/treading around. It's even worse if all the action is centered on one half of the map and you get killed, and thus are forced to make the long trek across the entire map.

  • I found this article quite interesting. The controller was my favorite because ive been waiting forever to see what the x button does and i havn't been active lately , anyway i thought that the reload might be nice because you use the RB to reload in Gears of War as well. It was actually a comforatble place for a reload button. I see great things in this game so far. By the way nice pic.

  • Hmm about the speak to push D-pad thing... Didn't frankie say something about muting the opposite team in about 1 sec or something a couple of weeks back? Hopefully there will be a quick meny selection on the D-pad for that. If you are bound to push up on the D-pad to speak and so on again it really shows how much (or how little) bungie really learned by making H2...

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] RedInuYasha *Sigh*Why do you do this to me Bungie? You're breakin my heart here! Once again with the pushing the god damn button to talk..No other games have that so why the hell are you doing this? Just use the damn D-Pad for a "Press Left for non-team chat, press right for team chat" it's not that hard! Ugh..[/quote] My thoughts exactly. I dont want to take my thumbs off the movement sticks to talk to someone to tell them where something is! How detrimental would that be? (presses D-Pad)"Hey guys they are over by the port-a- BLARGH!".............Dead from pressing the button to talk and not being able to move at the same time...... Unless there will be an option for Voice activated, change it to team/everyone chat options.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] tk120304 "And the last thing... In H3 EVERYONE wants to see a REGIONAL FILTER in Matchmaking! People don't want to play against other players with a overseas host, due to the lag and delay it causes!" Depends on the speed of the Host. I've played with many people overseas and I never really had that much of a problem at least in the wee hours of the morning. Now during peek times I can maybe see where the filter would be a good Idea. But I think it still comes down to how bad is the traffic in a given region and how up to date everyones carrier equipment is to find the best route for the data to get through. [/quote] If Europe and the US meets, the team who gets the host win about 70% of the time. When me and my firends play we get the host most of the time. And due to that we often win. But when the opposit team gets the host (and it's overseas) they are most likely to win. If you listen to what people are saying on live it's always the same. "Oh no foreign host!", "Go get yourselves better connections" and so on, and so on. It gets a bit frustrating after a while. Especially when both me and my friend's got 100/100 mbit. So it shouldn't be laggy.

  • Pretty mad update. I got annoyed at that no hi def t.v not as good graphics thing but oh well, finally we know what x button does but i was mad that they didn't tell us what equipment. The most awesome is the separate reload for dual-wielding and on one last note the x and rb swithceroo thing won't be so hard to get used to but I am gonna so stuff up my first game. Thanks Bungie

  • About the controller and button layout. Seriously... Are you bound to puch the D-pad to be able to communicate with your team in H3? If so that's gonna be the worst -blam!- I've ever witnessed. So now you gotta drop everything you're down just to be able to say a few lines? I really hope that it isn't the case. Should be able to communicate with your team without pushing a button. Just like in Gears of war and Call of duty 3. I actually doubt that any other game has that stupid function. You can still have proximity voice hearing on, but you can always hear your team. I mean seriously... it is the most stupid and annoying function ever. In H2 the button you push the most is the "speak" button. And that's just annoying and stupid. One thing console games lack compared to computer games is the option to fully costomize the button layout on the controller. Few games has that function and I don't understand why. It would really take Halo to the next level if you could fully costumize the button layout. And no it wouldn't get "unfair" in any way since everyone can make the controller totally your own. Since I started playing H2 on the 360 I've wanted to put the punsh button on RB and change granade switch to the B-button. It is really stupid that you can't personalize the button layout. And the last thing... In H3 EVERYONE wants to see a REGIONAL FILTER in Matchmaking! People don't want to play against other players with a overseas host, due to the lag and delay it causes! That was all. Thanks [Edited on 05.01.2007 4:03 AM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] B0SSK You do know the difference between 1080i and 1080p is unnoticeable to the human eye. I think you will be fine. One other thing 1080p sets usually run at about 1000$ more than a 1080i set. And if you or your family can afford that, and your super worried about missing out on the upscaled 1080p, $479.99 doesn't seam like too much of a stretch.[/quote] Correction: Unnoticeable to the [b]untrained[/b] human eye. I've been into the high def scene for a while now, and especially when you've got a good set, or projector like myself, there is a MAJOR difference between 1080i and 1080p. I'm the kind of person who gets pissed when theaters advertise "DLP projectors" to show movies. I don't want to see the damn pixels when I'm watching a movie, I go to the theaters to see the film! I'm the kind of person who notices the "DLP Rainbow effect". I'm the kind of person who can see HORRIBLE interlacing artifacts in [some] 1080i streams. I'm the kind of person who downloads 12 GB episodes of TV shows like "Lost", because I can notice the difference in a 40Mbit bitrate and a 10Mbit bitrate. Progressive > Interlaced. End of story ^_^

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Frankie You’ll also be pleased to hear that split-screen will be an option, although limited to two people in the Public Beta. We’ve also done something cool with the splitscreen display for HD monitors – instead of stretching the horizontal or vertical axes into big, scary too wide or too tall horrors, we’ve sensibly windowed the action, maintaining lots of screen real estate, but preserving a proper, playable aspect ratio. [/quote] Here is an example of what it is like to play Halo 2 on the 360 on a widescreen TV. No peripheral vision [url]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v210/Randomoriginality/OldSplitScreen.jpg[/url] Here is an example of what it would be like if the new split screen mode Frankie mentioned is in Halo 3.

You will not be charged for this transaction. Please try again later. UUUUGHHH!! teething pains for sure. PLEASE HELP ME OBI WAN , YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE!!

  • These controls will most likely make multiplayer and campaign a little more easier considering that u only use the LB or RB to reloadand instead of reaching over with your finger to do those actions.
