Oh for chrissake, the only reason you'll get flamed is because you literally asked for it right there. You should only make a joke about being flamed if you know, from brains to balls know, that you're going to be flamed. When you make a point, a damn good point mind you, it's sad that you think you're going to be flamed over it. Take some pride in your opinion, man!

Honestly, what is it with the massive influx of pussy newbs lately!?

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
The problem I had with Halo 2's single player was also the lack of missions that I really liked. From the people I've talked with, Assault on the Control Room was their favourite level in Halo 1. Give me a level like that in Halo 2.

Another problem was some of the levels were either too long or too short... and then, with multiplayer, you have annoying kids on there who make you want to strangle them.

I don't know why, but I haven't had to deal with more than one kiddie. Ever.

Then you're lucky, because there's a huge contigent of them all over the net.
And anyway Iron Wolf, why would you get flamed? Most of us (with the exception of Deepblue) aren't MS fanbois, and your opinion is valid (I personally agree with all of your points). Nothing to be afraid of :p

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
As glad as I was that Halo 2 didn't have the repetitive level design, it didn't have as many memorable levels as Halo 1. The beach on the Silent Cartographer, Assualt on the Control Room, and the Maw were all absolutely amazing.

Cut a noob some slack, how was I supposed to know you guys wouldn’t go all rabid Halo fanboy on me? K-rist, if such a little statement sends you into the stratosphere, you need to see a specialist.  Now.
Come on now, be honest. Wouldn't you all rather listen to your hairdressers than Hercules? Or Horatius? Or Orpheus? All those old bores! people so lofty they sound as if they s**t marble! - Mozart, Amadeus

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
There's a difference between rabid halo fanboy and halo fan.

Namely, the difference between the HBO forums, and the Gamespot forums (shudder).

Zuh? My only issue is with people being complete pussies as of late, which you thoroughly demonstrated by your post. It offputs the entire balance of the forum and attracts the wrong type of people. Clean up your act, matey. Being a newb is no excuse.

Oooh yeah. The Maw was surprisingly ace... at least, once you got out of the parts of the ship that you'd visited at the beginning of the bloody game. My only objection aside from the horrific scaling issues present in that mission was to question why the hell there was a 3-kilometre-long Warthog pseudo-obstacle-course running the length of the ship?!

A 1 kilometer long ship, at that.

Okay, we will give you that. But only that.

Here's a fun discussion: which do you think will be better, Half life three or Halo three?  ;)

Re: Halo 3 Thread of Great Justice
Surely I'm not the only person who thought the Maw was hideously dull?

mmm.... come to think of it, I really don't remember much of Halo beyond The Silent Cartographer, the bit in the woods where you first meet guilty spark, and some inside bits with metal walls.  One thing is that apparently Bungie cut out at least one cutscene explaining what happened to the people from the, what was it? - Pillar of Autumn?, showing the survivors assembled et al; which might have stopped me getting quite so confused as to what in malarky was going on.

Till I read the books I simply assumed they'd been caught by the Flood.

I meant at the start.  i.e. where did they get all the dropships and whatnot from, and where did they all go.

I don't have the novel, and I don't want the novel.....there's precisely bugger all useful information in-game (for me, anyways) about what is going on with the 'army', it's basically a corridor shooter after the first few levels.

They're dropships. I've watched Aliens.

Where they came from and where they went is probably the same sort of story except substitute the Pillar of Autum for the Suluco and the Flood\Covanent for the Aliens.

Yeah it would be nice to have seen why Foehammer's was the last dropship left at the end of the game but given that by at that point the entire surface of Halo was covered in Flood and Covanent fighting each other I didn't find it too hard to believe that they'd all be wiped out.

It'd be nice to have some idea what the Marines were doing, though.  Even just a few errant 'aah, we're ****ed' radio transmissions would be nice.  A sense that outside the now-dated-looking canyons and narrow playspaces where was some sort of fight going on.  You even have a little voice in your head to give you that information.
