OFFICIAL Halo Reach Discussion

Post  Hardline Pro on Sun Aug 15, 2010 7:12 am

This is the thread to discuss all things regarding Bungie'.s latest title, Halo Reach.

My Halo Reach Stats

Halo: Reach is a first-person shooter video game, developed by Bungie and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox 360 console. Reach was released in North America, Australia, and Europe on September 14, 2010, and in Japan one day after.[1] Originally unveiled at E3 2009, Reach was preceded by a multiplayer beta available to those who purchased Halo 3: ODST, in order to gain player feedback for fixing bugs and making gameplay tweaks. Reach is the final Halo title that Bungie will be developing, as the Microsoft-owned studio 343 Industries will take over development for all future games in the series.

Forge world sure does look amazing. Best case scenerio:

This weapon:



Is described as being similar to the Brute Shot. I'm hoping that this will act more like the Brute Shot in Halo 2, where it doesn't explode after a certain distance, and has a small arc, kinda like MW2's M203, really. If so, I will recreate the gametype "Troy" from Halo 2, where players would spawn across the canyon from each other with no shields, shoot all of the Brute Shot's ammo in the beginning to simulate a rain of death. While so, they run toward the middle, and take part in an OHK melee to the death.

It's epic. Here's an example:

I've not looked into Reach that much, but it looks pretty good. The flagship feature is obviously the new forge mode, which I have seen a video for. I'm a big fan of Garry's Mod, though, so I doubt Forge will be able to live up to the sandboxyness of that.

I'm going to wait for reviews. Same thing goes for BlackOps though. I'll be in Uni (hopefully - I'll find out on Thursday) so may not have the time or money to be buying and playing games whillie nillie.

However I will say that since Halo 2, I've not really been 'hooked' to any Halo game. And I wasn't exactly hooked on that - not sure I even completed the campaign.

I'll buy it if I have the extra money but seeing as I probably won't (Sad) I'll have to rent it.

Forge will be amazing and with all the new features I expect great things to come from it. I spent more time in Halo 3 messing around on maps others made from forge (Racing FTW)

Multiplayer wise I didn't think too highly of it, I never really have enjoyed Halo's multiplayer. I do, however, enjoy the "fun" gametypes Bungie adds into the mix like swords or the dodge ball variant.

Single player will be amazing, it's always been Bungie's strong point and I think it will continue on with this installment. Also, since I read some of the books I am interested in what actually happened on Reach.

Space battles are epic.

I dunno if its because I don't have a 360 or what, but I'm not excited at all. I don't like Halo.

I think I will pick it up for Firefight with friends, Forge 2.0, and for the single player. IMO, Bungie is one of the best in the biz in terms of compelling stories with good emotional connections. The music they put in is really effective as well.
I don't really like Halo MP anymore; I played it a lot back in the day, but I prefer CoD now.
The Forge 2.0 tools look pretty awesome. Forge was a cool idea in Halo 3, but it was also kind of annoying. It was infuriating trying to move objects to connect with other objects, and the inability to have floating objects (without the work-around) was irritating. From what I have seen, they have made some really good changes to the toolset that will make it a lot easier to create good maps.

Someone told me that Reach is going to be the last Halo game, is this true?

Who cares?

They'll probably make a Halo 4 on Xbox 720 that 13 year olds will fap over for at least 10 years.

I couldn't care less about Halo Reach. I was never a Halo fan and never saw why anyone was attracted to it. From my experiences with Halo 2, 3, and ODST, it was a below-average FPS with unappealing gameplay. The only thing I always liked about the games though was the artwork. Master Chief is iconic looking, which is the best thing about the series in my brutally honest opinion.

Nah, I don't think that MW2 will be dead. Halo and CoD share some members of their communities, but there are still people who won't be moving on to Reach or even BO.
I think I'll pick up Reach, but only for the SP, Forge and Firefight. Not a big Halo MP fan anymore.
