Day one

Postby Iconic MAC » Wed Nov 12, 2014 12:25 am

Well day one was kind of a let down. From long wait times in matchmaking, getting booted from parties, and teams getting split up once your able to find a game. I am so glad I did not waste a day off for launch day. Hopefully this can be cleaned up this weekend so the frosty pints can be enjoyed.

How was everyone's day on halo? Are any members of GS working on forge maps? What is your favorite aspect of this game so far? BTW I could not get super jumps to work in custom lobbies, anyone else have any luck?

I haven't even tried to get into any online multiplayer yet. My first day was spent playing thru the first campaign and starting the second, so it was a great day for me. It was awesome playing that old game again and then being able to jump right into the next one with no delay or disc swtiching. Also, the cinematic cut scenes for Halo 2 are just beautiful. You could put them together as a movie and I would watch just that. :D

I will be on for some MP this weekend, though. I read that there is an update rolling out today with more over the weekend, so it should be good to go for Frosty Pints. See you all then. :D

I looked around the menu's as the day one update was downloading/installing. Adjusted settings/ color scheme, set universal controller settings for all games (set it to the one you can use left trig to ADS) then got lost all over again in halo 2 campaign... a good day for me.

I was a little let down that I couldn't co-op the campaign with Fed. Frosty pints pvp will be fun, but I was hoping for online co-op. Not sure if this was even a feature... anyways see you Friday evening after the MK8 bar league.

(This was only attempted on halo ce / halo 2) I didn't check halo 3/4

What button do you click to switch between the original look and the remastered look?

It' s whatever the new back button is called.

I'm just going to play the campaigns and other games for a few days until they get the MM straightened out; a little disappointed I didn't get to play any MM but still had fun with the H2A. Almost beat it and then on to 3!

My favorite part so far is reliving the first halo game. That was the first game I got into when I got the first Xbox. I also love it that I'm playing through the game with my son who was in pampers when I got halo the first time. It's killing me that I haven't been able to get online yet. I've tried multiple times and nothing ever happens. I know some people are playing online because I've seen them on Twitch. I got close once, it was a big team battle and we needed 10 people to start. We got up to 8 people then everybody started quitting. I really hope they iron out the problems before the frosty pints session.

What was the back button is now called the view button.
What was the start button is now called the menu button.

Gotten into a few mp games but the waits are long and kicks are often. Not played a mm game of H2A yet. H1's hit detection is messed up - getting sound cues that my shots are hitting but either getting a delay kill or nowt (the beloved H1 3 shot pistol is taking an average of 5 shots to kill). H2 has been the best so far but most games are leggy as hell. Ditto for H3. Not played a H4 game yet.

Honestly my heart is breaking. The campaign is great but I really want to play Halo multi player.

Most (if not all) of the twitch streams seem to be customs or campaign.

Custom games however seem fine across the board. H1 is still a bit dodgy but H2A is amazing - only done 1v1s so far (sry again betsy).
