Halo CE will always be the best Halo, but then again I'm more into the single player

There's a bunch of hate reviews out for the game now.

Still expect it will be amazing...campaign looks incredible and that is the big thing going in for me.. Multi i'm sure will be fine..nice bonus.

Thinking of doing a big Halo run this weekend.. probably don't have time to do the five games though.

Where? I'm curious to see what they say that made them hate it. All of the major sites have been giving it excellent reviews.

Forward Unto Dawn was incredible. Can't wait for the game even more now...

Diehards do not like all the new loadouts/perks. Like they are supposed to release the same game since Halo 2 with new maps, ect.

Halo 2 was definitely the best Halo for multiplayer. I'm surprised they don't release a downloadable on live. They would make a **** ton of money.

Halo 2 was amazing.

Great maps, great community (before everything was a party chat... I<3 clans)

Episode 5 was awesome, awesome to see Kelly and one of Kurt, Samuel or Frederich get some love.

I most definitely pissed myself when John killed that Hunter with the grenade, and as he stands the old Halo theme starts fading in. Chills down my spine too.

My hype-o-meter is now off the freaking charts.

My only problem with that scene is the armour the hunter wears. It's said to be damn near indestructible. I wouldn't have had a problem with the scene if the grenade had just popped the hunters actual body into a blurry sludge, while leaving the armour mostly intact.

I didn't know hunters were so gelatinous that you could just punch a hole straight into them

Look like I might have to change my locale to UK when playing Halo 4 since this is localized in Finnish as well. The Finnish translations for the kill messages in multiplayer are apparently hilariously bad and a bit of a buzzkill in general.

Said I wasn't going to get it but I'm not really playing anything besides Dishonored on and off.. Going to grab it and go straight into split screen co-op on legendary with my buddy who I used to play Halo a lot with over the years. Depending on how that goes I might get live back and see how the multiplayer is.

Make sure you start on Heroic difficulty level.

I thought you couldn't play Legendary until you beat it on Heroic anyways but I could be wrong.

Well if that's the case then we'll have no choice but to start on Heroic. That's fine too I guess.

Well you couldn't play on Legendary until you beat it on Heroic but I wasn't sure if you were going to play on Normal. The reviews have said the evemy AI is at it's best from Heroic upwards. And of course real gamers don't play Halo on normal.

Yeah I gotcha. I don't remember that being the case before but it seems so long ago that I probly just forgot. Splitscreen Heroic should be pretty funny to play too. Some of my favorite times are doing splitscreen Legendary on Halo 2 and all the funny deaths.

My plan of replaying the 5 games leading up to release just didn't happen.

But thinking of popping in some Halo 3 right now to get warmed up

IRC Reach allowed us to jump right into Legendary I don't think I've ever had any additional playthroughs with the Bungie titles because of stackable difficulties, I hope this is the case because with the extra players available during campaign Heroic sounds like it might be a walk in the park, I'd rather take-off with Legendary and grind it out with bros having a good time getting our butts handed to us, makes the reward that much more sweeter

I guess I'll find out in the next 14 or so hrs...
