Please get File Share up and running asap 343.

I can't agree more. I want to see what people managed to make with the 3 mediocre forge worlds. That's not sarcasm, either. I do wonder though, why aren't the example (for lack of a better word) maps in the forge worlds not used in matchmaking yet? The one that comes with Impact seems like a ton of fun for Slayer and Objective, and the other two in Ravine and Erosion might be good for Big Team stuff as well, since they're large and filled with vehicles.

Speaking of which, any of you guys have made any forge maps yet? I'm in the middle of making one on Erosion, using half of the outside area for simple Slayer stuff. Just a medium sized map that's maybe big enough for a Mongoose or Ghost, nothing extraordinary or anything.

Me and my friends made a huge racetrack just full of jumps and bullshit in about an hour. We have some vehicles there and had Mongoose races. Nothing that anyone would want to use for anything other than fucking around.

I remade Guardian from Halo 3 with friends, but that's about it. Probably working on Relic next.

Once I have those last 3 achievements, I'm done with Halo 4. I'm putting it in storage... until they up the achievements when they bring out a new map pack. At least i was stupid enough to put an extra $30 for 2000 Microsoft points to get map packs, hopefully. Is anybody annoyed as I am about the zoom staying in tune when being shot? Kill cams are a joke! Watching people playing in zoom... hilarious... sniping is a joke... takes no skill! No skill to pull off a no scope! NO SKILL! Halo doesn't need a one shot. It's just... horrible... and yet people are still stupid enough to line up and die...

Cut scenes are the best! Game can suck my balls!

That may be part of the reason why the campaign was a let down.

How does it being written by a woman have anything to do with it's quality?

Obviously because it took a more emotional route with cortana and chief's relationship.

Game was too short. That cortana/master chief love scene was so off the mark it made me want to barf. And there's something that's too smooth about the filters for multiplayer. There's also a total lack of balance and well placed weapon drops.

I don't know what this is, but it's not Halo.

That aside, what little campaign there was did play well, but of course, there was too little of it.

I'm actually disappointed now that the game is over, and I might go back to multiplayer reach...

I'm trying to figure out a really good loadout. Everytime i put a DMR and a Boltshot, my friend LawlsMarine yells at me that it is too overpowered. I'm pretty much forced to use a Storm Rifle and a Magnum [which i dont have a big problem with]. But, anyway my Storm Rifle is on Expert and my Magnum is almost on Master. But yet LawlsMarine uses a Carbine and a Plasma Pistol. Thats kind of overpowered. Right?

So I'm getting Halo 4 tomorrow for Christmas. I'm not a huge fan of the series but I have been playing the whole franchise from the very beginning. Is there anything I should expect?

Different controls, a beautiful new world, a less-epic campaign, METAL GEAR mecha, Assault Rifles that can actually hurt people, decent multiplayer, enjoyable but repetitive Spartan Ops co-op missions, improved Forge mode, not so improved Forge Worlds, and holographic Spartans teabagging your dead body. And if you play Flood, hearing that damn infected horse whinny over and over.

Anything I miss, fellas?

Game match types switching every once in a while, armor customization, retarded people that will betray you the chance you get into a matnis (which is why you stomp on them and tea bag to hell), and I definitely recommend playing Halo 4 on legendary (it's not too difficult).

The campaign was fantastic, it was extremely short but it was a blast all the way through. The multiplayer has been infuriating me so much recently. I'm SR 95 right now I believe, but the only time I can have fun whilst playing online now is when I'm playing with my friends. Playing by myself makes me want to die. I believe, in its current state, Halo 4's multiplayer is broken.

Nope. These are some pretty good points as to why, but not all.

Halo 4 has a lot of problems but it is still salvagable. A few patches and it will be saved, but 343 Industries is horrible at community management.

Is Spartan Ops/Co-op campaign extremely laggy for anyone else? War Games is fine, but co-op is just unplayable for me.

Only time they lag for me is when it's my own fault.
...So it's probably your connection.

It must be something to do with my connection, but I'm just confused as to why it's only with co-op since War Games doesn't lag at all.

I haven't played the entire campaign but I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with the forerunner enemy combat in that it has no distinction whatsoever from normal combat. I haven't played the entire campaign but so far it seems like a lot of this crap could've been crow-barred into halo 3 and 2 respectively.

If one things for sure it's that it doesn't touch Halo Reach in quality, the best in the series.

Different network modes.
Multiplayer, everyone sends their data to a single player, the "host", who ultimately decides the actions in the match, then sends them back to everyone. So if the host doesn't see it, it never actually happened. Lag here is from issues with sending/recieving from host, which is why only you lag (unless you got selected as host, then everybody will lag).
Single Player and Firefight/Spartan Ops (FF/SpOps are the same thing), everyone is the "host" basically and in addition, all the data shared MUST sync up, so the game will halt until everyone's on the same page, thus lag.
