Can't speak for the MCC as I don't have an Xbone yet, but I'm very happy with what they did with Halo 4. I'd rate it as the second best Halo campaign-wise.

If anything's killing the franchise, it's the insufferable, loud, neckbeard minority among Halo fans that only started playing Halo after Halo 2 and 3. They bemoan the slightest of deviations from those games and any scent of innovation in the franchise is snuffed out by those perpetual moaners, who seem to think it's still 2007.

Fans like that make it hard for any franchise to stay relevant. Taking them into account, I think 343i are doing a pretty good job given the circumstances.

>>286806016

Bungie signed off on the future direction of Halo before handing it over to 343i. Funny you should mention Bungie's Reach - that raised more canonical conundrums than any of the other games.

I've been playing Halo since 2001 with Halo: CE (obviously). 2 and 3 were the low-watermark in terms of quality of story. I can't watch the cutscenes of 3 they're so god damn cringe-inducing.

Times change. People get bored of playing Halo 2 over and over. This is before you consider the fact that CoD4 broke the monopoly the Halo series had on console multiplayer. Halo has more competition now, it has to adapt to keep people's attention.

I, for one, was pretty much ready to abandon the series a year or two after Reach. Felt it had run its course. Halo 4 revived my interest for a short while (even if MP got stale quickly and the population fell once the next CoD was released), so I'm currently giving the series the benefit of the doubt to see if 5 can turn things around proper.

>>286806554

>Still non-canon.

Baseless assertion.

The criticism of Steitzer's lines I can understand. They're a bit OTT. As regards aesthetics, that's an opinion I don't really share, but I can't really dispute it because it's just that - an opinion. H4 did its best with ageing hardware (hence the Abrams-level lens flare), so again I'm giving 343i the benefit of the doubt till H5 (disregarding the 720p, extremely early beta).

Anyhow, I wasn't referring to the visuals of the cutscenes of 3 (and 2), I was referring to the god-awful writing. Feels like it was written by a 13 year old. 4 was actually quite well-written and didn't feel like it was constantly trying to 'out-epic' itself like 3 did.

A lot of morons joined the fanbase after 2 popularised console online multiplayer. Even more after 3. The worst of those fans stayed to continue shitting up the franchise and keeping us all in a sprintless, ADS-less, changeless 2005 while the rest migrated to CoD/Battlefield.

Hopefully a long fucking time ago. People dont realize that the 40k universe is completely fucking stupidly over powered compared to the Halo universe. A SM would shit on a spartan and thats not a bad thing. Halo to me is a much more realistic universe. No deamons, warp trickery or other bullshit. Still dont get why 550 years in the future they still use 7.62s though.

You're divorcing it of context. It was in response to this:

>People who play 343i Halo games unironically were born in 2003, this is a fact.

I was making the point that plenty of old school Halo fans enjoy 343i's Halos.

>>286808009

>How the hell did you ever enjoy Halo if you wanted it to have sprint and ADS?

I've no love for sprint or ADS per se, but I hate the knee jerk reaction to it. No sprint and hipfire are not sacred cows. If the devs can make them work, I'm not against them.

Halo =/= no sprint/no ADS. If it were based on the lack of those two features, it'd be a fucking weak franchise that deserves to die.

>Also, >Im a fan of the original game, so my opinion is better than someone elses

Not quite, but certainly better than that of the >hurr durr sprint ruins halo crowed.

>Nah, Microsoft gave 343I the rights.

Bungie surrendered the rights to Halo in return for being allowed go independent. You're splitting hairs here.

>>286808571

>Sprint ruined the pacing of all the maps.

Fair criticism, but sprint can be done right. Though I didn't play the beta, it seems that they've managed to integrate it for H5G.

>What does 'ADS-less' mean?

ADS = Aim-Down-Sights. Aiming 'CoD-style', for want of a better phrase.

The servers for H4 are abyssmal compared to H3 and 2 in their heyday. 343i is making the same mistakes any shithead drooling onver potential AAA profit does; They mimic what the other shooters on the market do instead of build on the formula that make Halo enjoyable for what it is.

For Example:
>Loadouts kill the even footing multiplayer matches start out in, and balancing has been undeniably skewed.
>The new scope animations are desperately trying to latch onto the iron sights concept popular with CoD and MoH. ADS is a cry for the MLG crowd to come drooling over, there was nothing wrong with the previous usage of HUD scope.
>Sprint must be treated as a limited powerup, giving it to everyone destroys the pacing of engagements all over the map, vehicles exist for a reason.
>343i left Monty, chose Dubstep, made a slew of poor armor designs, cringy writing and dialogue, and have bled fans like mad. The servers for 4 reflect this, and only the autistic faggots like DJOrwell from the H generals are so rabid to defend it.

>The servers for H4 are abyssmal compared to H3 and 2 in their heyday

H4 existed in a different universe to 2 and 3. H2 had virtually no competitors. Granted, H3 had CoD4, but at the time CoD had virtually no momentum as a series and Halo was a strong, established franchise. CoD was living in a Halo world in 2007. In 2012, Halo was living in a CoD/BF world.

>Loadouts kill the even footing multiplayer matches start out in, and balancing has been undeniably skewed.

I agree actually, but remember this started with Reach. Like dual-wielding in 2 and 3 and equipment in 3, the franchise is better off without it. Loadouts were a failed experiment.

>The new scope animations are desperately trying to latch onto the iron sights concept popular with CoD and MoH. ADS is a cry for the MLG crowd to come drooling over, there was nothing wrong with the previous usage of HUD scope.

I played H4 with fishstick because it was irritating having all FPS having a similar basic control scheme (LT - scope/sights, RT fire etc) and having to rewire my muscle memory when I put H4 into the machine.

Aesthetics are aesthetics. I couldn't care less if they animate it the old way or the H5G way, as long as it's functional/functions the same.

>Sprint must be treated as a limited powerup, giving it to everyone destroys the pacing of engagements all over the map, vehicles exist for a reason.

You're reaching a bit here. It's not like sprint negated the need for any vehicle.

I've already said I thought it could've been better implemented (I think 5's got it right from what I can see).

>343i left Monty, chose Dubstep

Marty? He stayed with Bungie. The dubstep shit was only used in marketing, there's nowt in the campaign.

Again, you're reaching.

I dunno there were some pretty sleek designs to come out of 4. Even though some helmets were garish as fuck.

(I preferred the stalker helm IMHO)

Ah, I see I used the wrong term. What I meant was that blank slate characters that are meant to be the player have no place in the Halo universe.

>ADS is a cry for the MLG crowd to come drooling over


The MLG Crowd has been with Halo since Halo CE. Halo CE made MLG and Halo 2 soldified MLG's role in e sports. In fact, without MLG the multiplayer in Halo wouldn't be as good or refine IMO.
>>
>>286809883

>made a slew of poor armor designs, cringy writing and dialogue, and have bled fans like mad. The servers for 4 reflect this, and only the autistic faggots like DJOrwell from the H generals are so rabid to defend it.

Lot of personal opinions here.

I'd dispute the charge that 4's writing was cringey the most out of all that. The the prologue and epilogue were excellent, the Chief/Cortana interactions and story arc was excellent, the Chief actually had some substantive character development this time round... it felt more natural, mature, and not trapped between overly melodramatic and 'omg so badass' constantly like 3 did. Mo-cap'd animations also helped a lot storytelling-wise.

I don't understand why you defend the writing of 2/3 vis-à-vis 4. There were a lot of horrid lines in 3 in particular, including pretty much everything out of Halo 3 Truth (who might as well be a different character entirely to 2 Truth, even beyond the Terence Stamp VO), Rtas Vadum, Miranda Keyes and the decidedly hit-and-miss Arbiter (though David's ever-superb delivery did a lot to neutralise them).

>servers for 4 reflect this

I've already adressed this I'm pretty sure, but Halo isn't the only series out there anymore. There was a fuckton more competition for 4 than there was for 2/3. It was always going to have to deal with a more fickle consumer base.

I don't see the issue with Spartans specialising in certain skills, of course their suits would be tailored to maximise their efficiency.

Plus these are not the same autistic super soldiers with waifus like the MC, they are specialist soldiers.

Also, reach's Noble team were all Spartans, I bet you didn't throw a bitch fit when one of them was literally double the size of the other operators.

Plus it means a greater variety in player loadouts and encourages you to keep playing, which is a nice bonus assuming 343 doesn't fuck up the MP like it did in MCC

It's not a Halo game if you're not escaping from something that's being destroyed!

You're literally this person >>286802725

>people stopped playing halo because the game was fucking terrible

It got pretty good reviews and sold pretty well. It just didn't have much longevity beyond a few months population-wise.

If you're denying the fact that having ten times the competition of its previous numbered iterations doesn't affect the game's long-term population count, you're either delusional or plain stupid.

She get's arrested because ONI is using her as a scapegoat, and ONI being douchebags is kinda their thing.

Reach and Halo 4 suffer from what I like to call "Battlefield Syndrome". They put so much useless shit in the game that it detracted from everything and made everything less unique and recognizable.
>>
>>286818252
Probably more to do with the techniques she used to obtain the kids that became Spartans and the reason they were created.

Them being after master chief may be further into the H5 story than the videos let on, MC could have fucked up some ONI forces already which caused them to want to capture him.

>You're saying halo 4 had a poor population due to competition?

I was saying it was a significant factor, and one that's often unduly overlooked and that 343i hatejerkers conspicuously ignore.

>Then explain why halo reach and even 3 had a higher population at the same time as halo 4 was out, years after their release dates

I honestly don't know enough about this to argue about its minutiae. I read somewhere that there's a difference between how the population count is generate in 3 vs. Reach vs. 4.

Regardless, I'd argue the difference between populations isn't as relevant once you get down to 4-digit numbers - i.e. if it were Halo Reach 200k, Halo 3 100k and Halo 4 <10k, it would say a lot more than all three being sub-10k. The latter just says there's not a whole lot of people interested in Halo MP of any flavour anymore.

come on its not even the same development studio and Halo 4 made that self-evident with how much shit that was erroneously changed or altered. It's obvious these new Halos aren't marketed towards fans of the Bungie games.

All of that looks like unimaginative garbage with too many unnecessary details. The only good helmet in that picture is the Scout helmet. They even managed to somehow make the Halo 3 MKIV look like complete shit. And look at that ODST helmet! Absolutely destroyed. The Recon helmet is too round and well, at least the EOD isn't completely fucked. Overall, absolutely disgusting art direction. If you like any of this you objectively have no taste LOL

Did they fix the MCC yet? I haven't played it since launch. Once it works / if it's working right now, I'm fucking set for life. That's the only Halo I'll ever need.

Playing the Halo 5 Beta and looking at where they took the books cemented for me the fact that 343 really has no idea what makes Halo good. And that's okay I suppose. The series was good while it lasted.
