The biggest thing keeping me from playing a lot more is having solid teammates to play with consistently. It's very taxing to keep playing games where I am the only one actively pursuing objectives while my team dicks off. Plus, nobody ever has a mic.

This is so true.


This is my first time playing a Halo series game since Halo 3 and back then you were the weird one for not having a mic. Now if im lucky a couple teammates will have a mic but with my luck they're usually 12 year old european kids telling me im a ******.

Overall I find myself getting bored after only a couple games and end up popping in Skyrim more and more.
This is the biggest reason I don't play all that often. Dick move on 343's part, trying to force you to buy the map pack.

I got bored with it and have moved on. They need to add custom playlist, action sack etc. This rotating play list is bull ****. It feels so "beta" to me.

Just picked up Halo 4, first time I've gotten time to get to the store in months.
I've only played ~30 minutes of the campaign because I stupidly left my xBox/TV at school.

Seems pretty epic so far, I'm pretty hyped to get on multiplayer.

every ****ing game developer does this now. Cod is the worst. pay 60 for a year and we will give you some more maps...that should have already came with the game. And if you want zombie maps, you have to buy the ****ty MP maps as well. ****ing hate what online gaming has because. I remember halo 2 days when all the maps were free. thats how it should be

It's just business. When adjusted for inflation, retail games are cheaper than they have ever been. Compound that with the astronomical budgets on top tier games, and the crippled economy and publishers had to find a way to continue to make money to please their investors. If they didn't sell map packs and DLC then we wouldn't have the base games to play at all.

This is what I do every time I play Halo or COD when I play solo. Sometimes I think I'll be social, and join lobby chat but it usually only lasts a match or two before I end up muting the whole lobby anyway. If I want to listen to people call me a ******, I'd visit my parents more often.

Would anyone be down for some halo 4 sometime? 8,000 total kills and 4,000 something deaths, but win percentage is only like 52%...

Get halo 4, reach was a terrible game in both campaign and multiplayer. Halo 4 is honestly tied with halo 2's campaign for me, and halo 3's multiplayer.

On the topic of maps though. I agree, if a game series really wanted to build a fanbase (IE more people buying copies of the game) they would literally just release ALL maps from previous versions of that game for free.

I think a lot more people would come back to halo if they heard lockout, the pit, turf, the real coagulation, etc were all included in the newest game solely as multiplayer maps.

Wringing $$$ out of a loyal fanbase is a lot worse than growing a fanbase to a critical mass and then getting a few dollars from each and every one of them.

/rant, want to kill some fools

Curious how many of you guys would be down for this. The gathering was first announced in the sub reddits r/halo and r/gaming and gathered some pretty big enthusiasm over there so there should be a big crowd.

I think I enjoyed Halo 3 multiplayer the most of out the majority of the games I've played online. I didn't have XBL for the Halo 2 scene so this is what really got me into Halo's online. If I can find my game, I'll be on for sure.

I would so be down for this. Could we get a list going or some other people in on this?

Whenever I go on halo 3 there are still people playing it, but it would be nice to see a higher number.
