Those points are terrible, and most also apply to previous games as well.

Damn, I should make my own video on this, but unfortunately I don't have a capture card, or a decent mic. I just really haven't been having fun with this game.

I just got this recently. I heard it was turned into CoD, but holy shit I wasn't expecting it to be like this. They've fundamentally changed multiplayer into Call of Halo: Space Warfare. This is very disappointing.

I think you misunderstood what he said, he was saying that it's stupid to call Halo a CoD clone.

I never said halo was a CoD clone, what I meant was that they made the multiplayer unnecessarily like CoD. Halo multiplayer stood out before, now it's adapted to the CoD system, making it horribly unbalanced compared to before.

Carry a plasma pistol with you and take those damn things out. Whenever you EMP them they have no chance at all of survival. But yes, jumping over them whenever they are flying towards you is trickier than it should be given how common they are.

This is where you have to be outside of cover in order to be vulnerable to a ghost splatter, and while you're out of cover you're essentially a free kill to anyone who gets the drop on you, vehicle or not.

I know you have to move from cover eventually but when there's a ghost around it might be more useful to get it's attention from behind cover and then draw it in to go for the plasma pistol kill. If you do get randomly splattered by a ghost in the open it should feel no different to getting shot 5 times in the back and dying in the open anyway.

I don't like the fact that the guns aren't balanced. You have a fast DMR ,a strong ass battle rifle, a camping boltshot, and a overanged lightrifle, come on! They need to have some balance, but some of the small things are what really annoy me. Just ignore these if you want, they're not really important, it's a pet habit of mine to complain over the small things that don't affect gameplay. Is it me or does the red team color look pink? Also the ordnance drops really bother, i don't mind them, but when you get an incineration cannon then it's camp, camp, camp. And this just gets me so pissed off! NO GRIFFBALL!

I got Halo 4 for christmas, I like the campaign so far (Playing it on Heroic), but what sucks is that in order to play multiplayer, you have to friggin get a Xbox Hard Drive, which I didn't get yet, so I'm kinda pissed that I can't play multiplayer >:(

You can get an external hard drive, but that will eventually get somewhat annoying. It's also annoying that you need xbox live gold in order to play spartan ops, and it's mediocre at best. Cutscenes are excellent however.

Oh and the new crimson map pack is...well it's derp. They all feel a little too familiar for me. I personally wanted more close quarter maps like...Haven or Adrift instead of maps like Complex.

I know you can get an external hard drive and Halo 4 comes with a 14-day Xbox Live Gold Trial.

So what is the best way to level up? I had this game this launch day yet i'm only 47. No I don't suck, on average I get 20 kills and 6 deaths. Is it my kill-death ratio?

Just play through the game. Playing a gametype that you are good at is the fastest way to level up. For me I leveled up like crazy whenever I played King of the Hill. Honestly, 80% of your EXP will just come from finishing matches.

I tried that. It is working wonders right now, just capturing flags non stop. Oh yeah, GRIFBALL IS OUT!

Yeah. It wasn't obvious but you can tell he had feelings for Samsung's future phone. Also the game doesn't give me that "Halo" feel like the original trilogy did. Maybe it's the music, I say 5 and 6 should have Micheal back with the music. Halo 4 has good music but is crap compared to the original.

I agree, the music was less epic. Idk though like master chief used to be a bad ass too me, now he's just a creep who's in love with his Iphone

Human/Android slash fiction was the least of the story's problems. IMO, even Uncharted 3's story wasn't as terrible as Halo 4's was.

Have you seen impact? It's bigger than forge world, is in space where you have a fuckton of room, and added a shit ton of things you can put, and even added new functions.

Halo 3 has always been my favorite halo, and due to nostalgia, will probably always be my favorite, but it's forge was total and absolute shit compared to Reach and 4's forge.

A big wave of new age gamers. A lot of the old school guys who've been gaming since forever are driven away from games that you can tea bag in because of some stupid reasons or something, and most of the new gamers don't even know what tea bagging is. Not to mention xbox 360 caters to people of all ages, so you end up with a lot of older and more mature people playing.

True though, I've only met three tea baggers. Last night when I did it some kid asked me what I'm doing. If only the veteran players would give Halo 4 a chance and not call it shit.

...if you really want to be in a game where people teabag, how about you call up some friends and play with them?

I'm delighted to hear that teabagging's become scarce.

Ah Newgrounds. I can edit my signature and I can't edit my post.

That post came out wrong.

I was going to say "If you're part of the 'old gaming crowd' who enjoy/rifle in teabagging, then find some of the older crowd who have the game and play with them, since this newer Halo 4 crowd apparently aren't interested. I would find it strange that most of the "older Halo fans" went cold turkey with Halo 4.

Yeah I do play with my friends, they tea bag. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, however it's sort of become a tradition, somebody on halo 3 once called a rite of passage to me. Still, it's too bad most veteran players are just sticking with the original 3 and reach, do they even know that 343 was made from most people who left Bungie to continue the Halo series with their own company?
