    lol i’ll need a copy of gears judgment to play this ?

    but seriously, hopefully some fresh maps and the ranking system brings some numbers back to halo, the online population is seriously hurting . the maps do look dope !

      its hurting because unlike Bungie, 343 seems to be destroying the Halo MP one week at a time. Its not fun when playlists are removed in favor or some terrible ones.

      • Marshmellowwolf

        they remove playlists based on population, no point on keeping something up that doesn’t have people playing it when they can introduce something new. plus they rotate playlist with tweaks to improve them.

    I want to start playing H4 again, but my issue with it is not the game but the controls as I have become so used to the CoD ADS and button setup that I have a hard time running around with no real ADS on most of the guns lol.
    Though I still love the bumber jumper option in Halo, that I do like. Fun MP but I’ll have to get used to it again at some point.

      dont think i’ve used the crouch button in halo 4, why they have it mapped to B i will never understand. its all the little things they changed for no reason that annoy me the most.

      • Nick Peck

        Yah. I only use it from a distance depending on cover and the map setup to help hide / mask a few shots before running off :)
        I’m glad about the rumor for the next xbox that the controller isn’t changing much, but at the same time I hope they put a much better D pad on it and I wish they would toss a few extra finger buttons on the back of the controller (like the custom controllers have). Would make things much easier. I also hope this time around they allow for full button re-mapping… hahahahaa I know it won’t happen but damn would it be nice.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

          i too, would like full button remapping.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bush-O-Connor/555604190 Bush O Connor

          button re-mapping should be standard, maybe it will be 1 button 10msp’s re-map charge :)
          the xbox pad is a perfect design, if only it had a flat back like the wired version and the d-pad from nintendo.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

            i use the wired controller but you can’t use a headset with them or it does stupid noises =

          • marhorn

            I use wired controller and no mic problems whatsoever….standard wired mic or wireless 5.1….stop your mongering!

    Been really getting into Halo 4 multiplayer lately. It is a much deeper system and feels more rewarding to play than previous Halo games. I was really disappointed by the lack of depth in Reach. Playing through the H4 campaign in online co-op and having a blast too.

      If you need a tutorial, you suck at FPS.

      • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

        Oh no, someone that is not good at fps games. Shun the lesser being!

      • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

        With the amount of different controls for FPS all them should have a tutorial to the multiplayer.
        Not all games should make the controls like CoD

        • Luneth

          Check the control scheme instead of being an idiot? The tutorial is the campaign if you still can’t figure them out.

          • http://twitter.com/HeyImSwat Daniel

            Bingo ^^^.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            Across all games some controls wont show what every button can do just the basic. An the tutorial is not the campaign it the story of the game and I did say a tutorial to multiplayer for example to learn maps

          • http://twitter.com/MKTheory John Doe

            Then play a custom game by yourself, pick a map and start wondering around.
            Problem bro?

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            Now we both know that’s not the same, maybe in custom matches have bots than it be fine I know a few games do but a lot don’t
            Problem solved “bro”

    one of the reasons I quit playing reach was because it took them way to long to put in griffball. wasn’t worth the wait.

    • marhorn

      Good things come to those who wait, patience is a virtue and all that…..

    I got on Halo 4 this morning. Only 200 people in the new playlist. 400 people in Slayer, and 800 in Big Team. Makes me sad
