What did he mean by this? What was wrong with the shoes?

The player character is replacing Spartan hom-A293, who died at Epsilon Eridani, the same planet where Kat lost her arm.

Yeah, the Halo 3-Halo: Reach era when WETA was working on a film and doing all the live action stuff was easily the most impressive vidya advertising period.

They tried to do it for Halo 4-5 but it's fallen flat, they obviously spent less and used a less prestigious firm to produce.
>>
>>322695714
in one of the live action reach trailers a spartan throws a bomb inside a covenant ship destroying it. in this scene you see Kat with both arms.

this is where she loses her arm and the spartan who threw the bomb died in the ship sacrificing his life.

at the start of reach you are replacing him with the team having little time to grieve for their fallen friend.

Bungie had a set idea for Halo's arc from the beginning. It was never their intention to beat a dead horse.

They resisted when Microsoft told them to make a new series, and when Microsoft pulled a page out of EA's book and tried to enact a hostile takeover of Bungie, they cited a breach of contract and split off.

I just really, really wish that Destiny didn't happen. I wasn't expecting something as good as Halo, but an MMOFPS grindfest as devoid of fun as Destiny really killed vidya for me.

You're delusional if you think halo is worse now than it was

I mean you're welcome to go back and play halo 3 and enjoy your uncomfortable animations in cutscenes and constant backtracking and repetitive level design and 2d painted backgrounds with a 3d model in front of them

Also >fps = stale

Be honest, did you play the newest wolfenstein? I'm gonna guess not.

You could at least try to make a solid point instead of moaning that your high school days are over.
>>
>>322705036
Seeing the awesome old live action stuff makes me depressed. The world, weapons, vehicles, etc still had a nice military realness to them no matter how sci-fi it got. Now its just derivative sci-fi shit that's not special anymore. No more soul. Seems too episodic also.
>>
ODST>2>CE>5>3>Reach>4
>>
>>322710413

It's downloading at this very moment

Also, fuck off. In its time Halo 3 was baller, and up to a few months ago I still played occasionally on matchmaking with the 300 or so dudes still roaming on xbox live. Also, at their release, Halo 4 and 5 couldn't stand up to the competition despite doing everything to homogenize the experience.

>You could at least try to make a solid point
Why don't you?
>>
>>322710505
>No more soul. Seems too episodic also.
Agreed, I went back and played through Halo 1-5 (and ODST) on Xbox One and Halo 4 and 5 seem the worst. I haven't played Reach in awhile but I remember liking it more than 4 and 5.

The promethean are shit and their weapons are not fun at all.

Why couldn't Jorge have a marine set off the bomb?
Why didn't Kat have her shields up?
Why couldn't Carter just eject from the pelican?
Why didn't Emile check his shields?
Why didn't Six try to link up with UNSC forces at Castle base instead of going off to the middle of nowhere to die?
>>
>>322711669

I would have ranked Reach higher if it didn't shit all over established lore, the gameplay itself was the most finely tuned and felt like all the good parts from CE, 2, and 3.
>>
>>322711673
>but they made them a lot of fun in 5
yes, fighting the warden 6x was a lot of fun

I really didn't like them in either game but I thought they were worse in 5 as you only fight the covenant in maybe 1 or 2 chapters

>>322711996
>gameplay itself was the most finely tuned
you have atrocious taste, the gameplay in Reach was the worst in all the Bungie Halos. Every shitty decision in 4 had a precedent in Reach

>>322712007
The Warden was shit, but that was like three levels

The addition of soldiers really fixed their encounters
>>
Reach had such god-tier armor designs. They weren't overboard with the stylization like 4's armors were, and weren't over-detailed like 5s armor is. It just struck the perfect balance and the customization was really well done.

Never understood why everyone shit on Reach so much, I had a ton of fun with it during its heyday. Forge was just about the only thing I disliked, because the structures and everything were so fucking bland, as was the forge world itself, just a boring fucking set piece. Oh, and armorlock wasn't as bad as people made it out to be either.
>>
>>322712279

>you have atrocious taste

subjective opinions aside, Reach's gunplay was the perfect combination of CE feel and 2 speed.

Assassinations were a breath of fresh air that 4 and 5 murdered.

Abilities made Invasion and BTB/6v6 extremely fun and varied, but were not necessary as SWAT/shielded gametypes without abilities were just as fun.

You shitters hate on Reach because of the campaign and awful lore decisions, but the multiplayer was a near perfect fusion of the prior games.
>>
>>322712675
Lore aside, Reach had a pretty tight campaign, which also looked fucking gorgeous.

Honestly when is the last time you all played 3's campaign? It's fucking horrid.

Every level is
>go here
>kill thing
>backtrack at least half the level

With the exception of the final level which is a retread of the end of the first game without any of the grandiose feeling

It has horrible, inexcusable for the time cutscenes with weird jerky character movement. The plot just exists. It's absolutely and easily the worst in the series besides maybe Reach.

Like goddamn I feel like I'm going crazy. It's laughably bad and somehow no one else notices.

its literally the fucking opposite and always has been. you're just saying what you want to be true

the reach campaign has always had either meh or good reception. the muliplayer with its sprint, armor abilities, armor lock, bloom, and loadouts is what people don't like

Dose anyone feel like halo 5 mp is just to god damm competitive?
Its not like I sucks major ass I just got the game and I'm plat 5.
But the fact that every match feels like everyone has a stick up their ass, really makes playing this game feel like a chore.

people shit on reach because they see it as being the start of halos decline into mediocrity.
Its kinda like how people like to shit on resident evil 4 because a lot of the way it did things was also used in resident evil 5 which sucked balls
>>
>>322715389
people shat on Reach the moment it was released, which you would know if you weren't a seething newfag

everything Reach did was objectively a downgrade from 3, which wasn't even that strong of an entry in the first place
>>
>>322715726
people on /v/ shit on almost everything popular at release.

that's nice, but it doesn't change the fact that you were objectively incorrect in your statement

Is this the new "literally"
>>
>>322716108
but I ain't incorrect
Initially people hated reach because it was the next game in a super popular series and the hype and expectations of what it would be like that they invented in their heads didn't match up to what came.
these days people shit on reach because they see it as the beginning of the decline of Halo

you said

which is wrong by your own admission as
>people hated reach because it was the next game in a super popular series and the hype and expectations of what it would be like that they invented in their heads didn't match up to what came.
which is not only also wrong, but directly contradictory to your previous statement

it's obvious that you weren't on /v/ when Reach was released so stop pretending you were
>>
>>322717135
>point out how objectively was used incorrectly

You're the one claiming objectivity without setting at least a clear example and a standard to measure it upon. It comes off as a half-assed opinion that way and in no way objective.
>>
>>322717135
I don't want to alarm you but I think you might be retarded.
Its obvious to anyone that my first post was talking about how people treat it today when looking at my second post which you would have realised if you were not so busy looking to start a shitflinging argument.
>>
>>322717530
I set the standard to measure it on: Halo 3

Everything that Reach changed from 3 worsened the quality of the game. I could go into detail over several posts, but I can't be bothered to make the same argument that thousands of people on /v/ alone just for your sake, when you'd just discount it because "LOL UR WRONG". If you're really interested, just check the archive, which you won't because you don't want to see anything that challenges your own opinion.

I look forward to your furious and seething reply, which I won't be reading

Forge was objectively better in Reach.
So were customs.
So was the actual implementation of matchmaking for all gametypes.
So was Spartan customization

>So were customs.

>So was the actual implementation of matchmaking for all gametypes.
customs?
>So was Spartan customization
this was the only other improvement
>>
>>322695714
Story was shit and try hard DEEP DARK garbage.
The deaths were all unnecessary and as soon as I saw a bunch of unnamned grunts dying ingloriously as a "SHIT IS REAL" with the camera and entire game simply ignoring it as an unimportant event no different from a single flash of light coming from a gun that a grunt alien shoot harmlessly at a wall.
AND the general super serial art design and awful map design.
...I knew it was going to be a stupid manipulative death porn game with a pathetic attempt at realism and quasi CoD gameplay.
The armor stuff?
I thought it was going to be fun and let the player design their own play style with different armors and abilities and what not.
NOPE
Just changing superfluous bullshit.
I knew that halo was going to shit. No I take that back, halo 2 was where I knew that the story was going to shit and the game play was going to start getting shit.
Halo 3 was servicable but the maps were garbage the powerups utterly fucking pointless and story weak.
>>
>>322717808

>I can't wrap my under developed brain around the idea that some things are like vanilla and chocolate - different, but impossible to define as better or worse

I don't like Reach either, but if you have an Opinion and you state it as Fact your opinion doesn't even have the validity it had to begin with
>>
>>322695714
Thom died, the team was bitter about it, still got an replacement because of ONI.
>>
>>322718180
Then not everything was an "objective" downgrade.

Reach also had more gametypes, and far more content overall.

Its only sins were that it was released in a time where the market was saturated with different shooters that were more accessible and it was being compared to the cultural phenomenon that was H3 (regardless of the game's overall quality, 3 was big shit back then and continued to be for years)
>>
>>322714194
