Literally, Bungie went off from the PC initial release, you all know thi sright, obviously you do :nod:
All shooters are PC based, the PC spawned the genre, Albeit, Goldeney is the best evAH, ok mebbe Perfect dark, Is there any difference betwixt PC and Concole shooters other than input device and system capability?


I mean in the case of dual platform titles like Halo 2.

I thought it ws a quite good shooter, for "just a shooter."

I enjoyed coop and XBL versus immensely. Derivitave or not, it had good production value, a decent story, and good voice acting, along with addictive shooter gameplay. I play it more than I play any of my "PC Shooters" from five years ago.

Halo did though ;)

I actually blame the developers, not Live. Quake 4 should have had split screen multi, if Gears can do it, and Splinter Cell can do it, and CoD can do it, makes me wonder why the Quake engine can't.

They should have split screen AND online, and be able to to it at the same time ala Halo2 and Gears and CoD3.

Gears, frankly, should define the way multi gets handled on Xbox games., with one exception, make it capable of 4 player like Haloe and CoD.

Anyway, Halo2, if you want it, but an xbox, you can get them basically new for 100 bucks, and you don;t have to have Vista, and you don;t have to break any laws, and you might end up with finding other bargain bin games you like that you can't play on the PC.

Or keep being ignorant of the joy of it all, I guess that's your choice too :)

why would anyone get excited about a re-release of a game that's what, 2, 3 years old ? Especially given what they did with the last one.....(this from someone who quite likes Halo too)

I'm simply interested in the multiplayer...my wish for Halo 2 to come out for PC came only after playing splitscreen.

even then its not all great...emasculated pistol and shotgun, anyone?

will this be one of the first games for PC that allows dual-wielding?

Soldier of Fortune 2 had it. Did quite well with it too, IIRC.

SoF2 was ok, I'm sure that Goldeneye had it way back when also. And Perfect dark.

Fear does it, but the guns are not really independent.

Dual-wielding as in akimbo guns?

I remember two Half-Life mods doing that... the old version of Firearms (twin M10's wahahaha) and the old Wasteland HL... but Wasteland's one was a bit cumbersome to use (quite a few guns to choose from when forming akimbo setups, quickest way was to use the gun selection menu anyway...)

SOF2... I miss it... but the first level already lags bad with this computer... :sigh: Insane gore for the win. :D <--- dastardly evil grin

MDKs' dog?

 

Offline Inquisitor

Negative.

Though I forgot about MDK's dog... Funny stuff...

-edit-
Mef got it in the other thread. Its Lo Wang, from Shadow Warrior.

When he picks up the second Uzi, he always says "Be proud, Mister Wu!"

Another fun quote I find myself spouting in Halo:

"Sticky Bomb likes Mister Stupid!"

Trash talking from a 10 year old video game is always fun for hte kids on XBL ;)

Was MDK the one with the bloke who had a sniper-rifle for a head? Cause that was a damn cool game, if it wasn't  for the fact that the CD came with a damn virus on it...
