    Thoughts on Firefight

    It was awesome. Very fluid and smooth. The medals in the center weren't imposing at all, like I had feared. I rather like them there, actually. It was a bit harder than I thought it would be initially. Though I was playing on Heroic and it was my first times playing (I played twice, once for the full 10 minutes and once for only a couple minutes before the game was cut short due to technical difficulties.. which combined with the schedule at hand led to the firefight demo ending a few minutes early). Its no cake walk. Having no radar is a pain in firefight, especially when you and your teammates aren't really communicating in a demo circumstance. Enemies come from all sides and they are sneaky lil buggers.

    The only difference I noticed that hasn't really been see or noted yet was the grenade physics. When I was watching from the line, I noticed player after player miss easy grenade throws and I scoffed under my breath. When it was my turn to play, I ended up missing quite a few as well. I ended up asking Paul (Bungie employee who's last name escapes me right now) after the game if they had made any changes to the grenade's physics, and he confirmed that there is now some auto-aim associated with throwing grenades. So when aiming at an enemy's feet with a frag, your reticule wants to pull your aim upwards towards the body, creating some overthrows if you aren't careful. It'll definitely take some getting used to, but it should only be an issue with frags. I got a few sticks.. I think it helps you out more with stickies/spikes.

    Overall though, a great experience. I even got to play with Paul Bertone.. I waited extra long to play with him on stage. Twas an honor.

    Sweet! I'm watching the vids right now... will get back to you.

    Edit: here are some questions:

    Can you drive vehicles while in firefight?

    Can you dual wield?

    and lol at that "sry if the camera follows my eyes"

    1500 of what?

    And in the second video when you say "Don't wanna be on the turret when the Banshee comes" Is there actually a banshee in FF or did you mean to say Phantom?

    Yes, but there weren't any vehicles on Crate [Night] or Security Zone to drive

    No, ODST's cannot dual wield.

    1500 of each poster. and I DID say Phantom is you listen closely :)

    Its pretty good. Its as fast as the H2 pistol for sure, and pretty damn strong as well. Accuracy/range seemed mighty fine as well.. I saw some guys pick off grunts from a good ways away

    Halo Legends is real? I saw something about it a month or two ago but there was so little info on it I assumed it was some ones attempt at a fan fiction cartoon/machinima!

    I know that Microsoft is just squeezing as much money out of Halo as possible and for that reason I should be assuming it'll be terrible, but I am rather excited about it!
    Edit: aaand I just watched the preview trailer. Nicely edited but overall it brought my excitement down to "Yeah, I guess its OK".

    Erm... no.

    Firefight and Forge aren't even on the same disc and I'm sure Bungie has said several times that there will be no option to add AI. Remember when they made the acceptance speech with a preview of Sandbox and they showed some existing maps with AI character models on? Bungie said then that they're not adding AI to Forge.

    You Lucky Bastard. I wish some big show like Comic Con would be held in Canada.

    On the other hand, your review of Firefight makes me want to play it even more now.

    That looks amazing and why didn't you show more booth babes.:irritated:
    Anyway it reminds me of the horde alot but I think this looks better I'm trying not to hype it though cause I don't want to be dissapointed, but it's hard.
