    I salute you for making this. CA could have done a better job than what they did in Reach. They had all this perfect stuff in Reach, what was the point of taking them out? We must show this to 343i and let them know about it. Jeez, I wonder how the 343i forums are reacting to this lol.

    hilarious, post it on 343 forums. I'd like to thank you also for making it so they feel like assholes when they see it.

    You are talking about the guys who brought you Halo 4, which may not of existed without them. I believe they deserve more respect than that.

    He didn't make this as a hate video to 343i. He made this to make sure 343i sees it and fixes what they did wrong. Halo 4 is a good game, it just needs A LOT of improvements, and 343i is not listening to us.

    I wasn't quoting the video, I was quoting the response. I think the video gets there point across rather well and makes it enjoyable to watch. But no need to hope 343 feels like assholes, forge is a small portion of the game. 343 had a lot on their plate, forge will get better, just give it time.

    This mentality kills me every time I see it. It seems it's my turn to point out the flaw in this argument..

    Some Halo Reach forge complaints: tapered blocks, rotation missnapping, zoomout while grabbing large pieces, framerate.

    Some Halo 4 forge complaints: even more tapered blocks, rotation missnapping, zoomout while grabbing large pieces without the ability to zoom in, framerate AND dynamic lighting issues.

    This is ignoring the part where 343i removes a bunch of custom game options, makes others not work, doesn't give us a flat piece of natural terrain to work with like the Quarry from Reach, blocks off the water, stops you from nudging, puts bumps on the bottom of bridge pieces, sets coordinate snaps inaccurately, adds useless and annoying little holes in pieces (I'm looking at you, wall coliseum), and rotates every piece in the match by 1 degree yaw if off-host in forge.

    Forge definitely got better over time.

    Who's says they removed it, maybe it was something they didn't have time to implement again. It's not like you just copy and paste. You don't need to say what the flaws are again, everyone who's forged for a minute knows what they are.

    Actually, I meant Certain Affinity were the assholes. I respect 343 for making Halo 4, but I don't agree with all of their decisions. As for Certain Affinity, Everything they do could have been done a lot better so they don't deserve my respect.

    Halo 4 would have came out regardless if 343 existed or not (All they did was modify Bungie's Halo: Reach game engine)... In fact that is why they exist in the first place. Microsoft would have just hired/made another company to develop it otherwise and edit the engine.

    But the point I was trying to make is that it takes an asshole to remove all of these custom games and forge features when the game is suppose to be an update.

    [br][/br]
    Edited by merge:


    lol, no... it won't. they aren't going to update and change the game for free, this is Microsoft's company...you get nothing free. You will get precision editing and zoom (possibly)...that's it. They wouldn't even give us that if everyone didn't keep bitching about it. Honestly, I'd rather see custom games options fixed.

    This is great and I understand a lot of the criticisms but I'm pretty sure they'll fix what they did wrong with Halo 4. Reach/Forge World was Bungie's LAST game. It took them close to a decade to really get the amount of options, creativity, customization, etc. out there. Halo 3 provided us with what? 10ish helmets? Reach upped that by a LOT. Granted, 343i and CA certainly were building off the previous games in a similar way Bungie was however remember -- new company. They're still trying to get truly comfortable. 343's last project was CE Anniversary and that was just a reskin game -- this was their first true Halo game and while many are from Bungie...let's be fair. Halo 5 will, more than likely, have the missing Forge features and gametype customization missing from 4.

    I loved the part of: so we gave them a rock, a rock in space, and a rock cavern part haha.

    I hope they keep the areas split unlike Forge World just to have multiple environments like a snow map, desert map, space, etc. But I hope they're much bigger than the ones in 4...

    My maing gripe with FW was every map looked the same no matter how much you tried to add so I gotta give CA props for trying to give different pallettes to us but it's silly that it's all UNSC, that dynamic lighting makes in door areas a bit too dark (give us more lights to use if thats the case), etc. When 5 comes out on the 720, it needs to be the biggest Halo to date to truly kick off Halo for the next gen. Idk what the specs will be but why not 4-5 Forge maps, 2 of which are about as big as Forge World? Multiple skins for Forge items, etc. I hope they go above and beyond what they had here and what Reach had.

    Oh I loved this :)

    I'm not at all a hater of halo 4's forge, but denying these obvious problems is foolish. If we do not speak out on issues, they won't get resolved, good material guys. :)

    not quite spot on, but a lovely jab at Certain Affinity and 343! I suppose all that we can hope for is some updates to fix the issues. One can hope for these things at least.

    Oh ****. I posted this in the videos section because I didn't find this here. I'll go ask a mod to delete it. Nice vid I laughed quite a bit at the falcon hog.

    ...explain yourself, mosquito.

    Most likely, you don't even need to copy and paste. It's probably simpler. That is, you could just update sections of code from the old game to make the new one. Why would anyone go through so much work as to start anew and THEN copy/paste stuff in?

    Exactly being someone who worked with halo 2's havok engine they just keep the same crap update code they need to thats all, from halo 2 to halo 3 was the only real change in engine software (because of the platform change) and yes 343 did do a good job with they game i commend them for adding to the cannon of the universe but seriously for one to outsource forge to a group who can't even "copy past" halo reach's forge i mean damn.

    As for the vid lol awesome it feels like bungie them selves did it haha.

    Man, this is genius. This has to be shared everywhere.. Around the 343 forums, the other halo forums.. What if we could finally get some attention because of this video. We have to use this. But anywho, this was hilarious :p
