Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Just beat Halo 4! Man, it was so exciting finally having a new proper Halo game to play. ODST and Reach were just not the same thing. The flying section of the final stage was insanely difficult. We died a million goddamn times. We couldn't see well in the split screen to determine obstacles, and when one of us died, it shook the screen of the other, causing them to crash. Ugh!

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Watch the episodes in Spartan Ops, Mr Light. It takes place on Requiem 6 months after the events of Halo 4.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Tentative schedule for new Spartan Ops episodes, playlists, and specializations:

Week of 1/21
Spartan Ops Episode 6: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.

"Forge Test" playlist (name not final): A rotational hopper featuring small Forge maps such as Relay. Help us test these maps by providing feedback and reporting bugs that will assist us in getting them ready for Matchmaking!

Specializations: Pioneer and Pathfinder Specializations unlocked for all players.


Week of 1/28
Spartan Ops Episode 7: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.

Grifball playlist: A rotational hopper featuring everybody’s favorite virtual sport. Catch the disease!

Specializations: Engineer and Stalker Specializations unlocked for all players.


Week of 2/4
Spartan Ops Episode 8: Five new missions and an accompanying new CG cinematic.

Team Doubles playlist: A rotational hopper for those of you that like action of the 2 vs 2 variety.

Specializations: Rogue and Tracker Specializations unlocked for all players.
The Halo Bulletin

Also, some hinting at what we'll be getting next month:

Matchmaking updates go live every Monday, and potential playlists for the month of February include both FFA and a new and improved version of Team Snipers. Late February will also bring both a Title Update and the Majestic Map Pack (which includes two small maps and one medium-sized map) to Halo 4 as well. Expect more information on all of those things next month.
FFA, finally!

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

I beat Halo 4's campaign a couple days ago. Am I the only one that thinks the writing and story was really weak? During the cut scenes I felt embarrassed playing the game. The gameplay is really fun and I like the physics of it, but Jesus Christ could they not afford better voice actors and writing staff?

I thought the story was pretty good. I certainly felt the love story between M.C. and Cortana

No. The voice acting was fine.

I hope they don't tie skill rankings to an achievement.

Title Update 3 has been applied. The details:

Enabled “X-Markers” on the HUD to designate when and where teammates are killed.

Updated Active Camo to fully reveal players when they fire all weapons.

Reduced the auto aim, magnetism and damage on the Gauss Warthog.

Fixed an issue in which some players at SR-130 did not see their Specialization on their in-game Player Card.

Fixed various issues with ordnance navigation markers.

Fixed various join-in-progress issues with Flood.

Added the ability to make weapon adjustments via backend tuning.
