Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Why use the Reach AR, and not the H1/2/3 AR?

It's not used by the UNSC Marines, just the Army. Oh yeah, and Army troopers. Nice continuity, 343.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Why exactly do you need an Army in space, anyway? Can't you just have Marines stationed at the planetary installations?

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

As I understand it, the Army are for standing garrisons only, wheras the Marines see shipboard/space/offensive service. It's silly, but the term "Marine" is silly in space, so it's only double silly.

Regardless, all the weapons redesigns for Reach were justified away by Bungie as those weapons being the ones used by the UNSC Army, wheras the trilogy weapons are the ones used by the Marines.

If you are referring to the gameplay footage I posted a while back, I should have clarified that it's from a pre-alpha build of the game. As such, we shouldn't assume that what we see is reflective of the final product.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

I'm actually really looking forward to picking this up, only for the nostalgia factor. Halo was my first console FPS back in the day, and reliving those memories should be fun.

Do I begrudge Microsoft for making money off me? Nope. It's what they do.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Im getting both of these games! I playing 3, ODST, Reach and Halo Wars again cause of it! I love the graphical switch option. It really shows how pain-stakingly acurate they were in re-creating this game, and not going fot a Goldeneye type re-make. The remake looks incredible,very much looking foward to Halo 4! I hope that Halo 2 is re-made in a similar fashion, so the whole saga can be on the 360!

I realize you can play 1 & 2 on hard drive enabled systems, but Still, it would be awesome.

It's kinda impossible to NOT be faithful when your using the exact same game engine and code, they've just overhauled the graphics and added in some terminals. That's about it I think.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

My only question is will they fix the bugs that gamers actually used during the game? Specifically the reload cheat. I actually hope not, I'd like my Halo 1 experience to be identical to what it was before only with better graphics, complete with the over powered pistol, super-sized rocket explosions, and reload cheat.

They were pretty adamant when asked about gameplay related changes - there are no changes.

Whether that will be true remains to be seen. So far, I'm pretty much hopeful they'll only touch the gfx, sfx.

In the X-Box version (I assume it's in the PC too, but I've never played it there) with the Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, Pistol, and Rocket Launcher, you press the reload button as soon as it starts reloading you pickup another weapon (and drop that one) you will hear it continue to reload itself on the ground, once that finishes reloading itself if you pick the weapon back up it will have both reloaded AND not have used a clip.. effectively giving you infinite ammo so as long as there are guns laying around to swap with and you have at least one spare clip in the gun to begin the reload process.

Never played Halo before, but picked up Halo 3 in a charity shop for £1 yesterday...

(They had Endwar as well, but strategy games don't interest me)

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Halo CE Anniversary is out now.

They did a really good job. Everything looks positively amazing. The ability to switch back and forth from the new graphics to the old on the fly is a really nice feature.
