Well, now that Halo 4 is releasing we should do what we always do. Make a hub for the game and all of its discussion.

Feel free to discuss story missions, online multiplayer, and general tactics. Be sure to post your gamertag if you want other NG users to play in your party.

...I can't believe I just beat the campaign in one sitting, but then again I did it on normal. It was...a pretty good campaign. The soundtrack, although not as memorable as Donnell's, was pretty great. 343 did a good job on this game.

Time to go to my 8 am and play some more Halo multiplayer when I get back!

Really? Even on normal, 6 hours is quite short (assuming you started just after your previous post). Then again I'm awful at games and I die a lot.

Well...I finished it in about 7 hours (enjoyed them though). Like all Halo games, I'd definitely recommend starting it on heroic.

Very great game. The new weapons like the Saw and the Railgun are great. The new robotic vehicle, the Mantis, is awesome, and I love the new warthog and mongoose sounds.

Badass game

Completed a daily challenge and I played a couple of slayer games. I gotta say, I'm doing pretty decent. I'm still adjusting to the new controls, even though I just completed the campaign this morning. I'd play more, but the halo servers keep shutting down.

I've been playing a little bit of everything but I just finished the campaign and thought it was pretty awesome. The graphics and flow to it was unbelievable and the story was interesting and sick. The only part i didn't like is the final gameplay of it felt like it could have been more climatic and intense, but that could have been because it was on normal difficulty.

But over all, fugg yea it ruled. Big up.

I've only been playing the multiplayer, I've never been a fan of the Halo campaign even though I'm sure it's brilliant.

I despise matchmaking. It's been Call of Duty-ized. Very disappointing. Halo needed an update, but it didn't need to become a Call of Duty clone.

Welp my kd ratio took a hit tonight all because my team mates couldn't grasp the concepts of defending a flag and staying at a distance instead of charging in with a dmr.

Of all the weeks that Halo 4 had to come out, it HAD to be this week.

The game is the most bad-ass game I've ever played. I orgasmed as soon as I turned it on.

If you are playing capture the flag then don't worry about the K/D, sometimes the best players have a low K/D. Mine is low beacuse in Diminon I will capture the base even if I know that it is going to kill me. Play the objective, brah.

Because COD is the only game aloud to have classes and perks.

Show me in my post where I said about classes and perks.

Battlefield 1942 was the first game to have classes (predating Call of Duty by 13 months); Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was the first to have perks.

Halo has had classes since Reach, which was fine because everyone the same classes available (except in Spartan v. Elites). Halo 4, like Call of Duty, generally allows people to have more powerful weapons as they hit higher ranks, turning Halo 4 into a game of rank and loadout selection rather than a game of skill.

And since you brought it up, yes, Halo 4 does now have perks. It borrows other 'features' from CoD, too.
- fast gameplay with quick deaths (like Call of Duty)
- killstreak rewards (like Call of Duty)
- tactical package and support upgrade (like Call of Duty's perks)

Aight I have never had problems with any other games and my internet is usually always fine, but for some reason most games after voting for the map i only join after the first 30 or 40 points are scored and am always getting disconnected from Live. Has any one else having these problems??

Im really liking the game so far but I find im doing for no apparent reason at certain times. For instance when watching kill cams the DMR seems to never hit me yet I die anyway, or a sniper bullet leaving the gun at a 45 degree angle and killing me even though they shot straight ahead. It might just be my connection or some serious lag between systems but I've been seeing a lot of this recently.
