Re: Stuff I wanna see in Halo 2

it would be cool if in halo 2's story line the master chief got captured and the covenaunt took his DNA and mixed it with an Elites to make a bad ass elite and they then cloned this creation. then the master chief escapes and he has to fight the type of elites.

Re: Stuff I wanna see in Halo 2

I would like to see some changes in multiplayer that lets you move the flag around (similar places for both teams) or perhaps have 2 flags to defend or capture.

I would also like to see a build your own battlefield. Knowing how much space this could take up and time, maybe some kind of second disk that you build it on, then save it to the memory??? Building similar to the first excitebike, you get some basic playing fields, add some impassible water areas or canyons, place some bridges or bases. Have the items premade and you just set them up. Have it question driven to start, do you want mountains or open field, in a ship, jungle, desert, a base, city square, lots of tunnels, teleporters, weapon and vehicle placement, so on and so forth. Options are endless - which is the main problem. Minefields might be nice.

I would like to see some rolling accompanied by shooting, either to the sides or a superjump over someone while still shooting down on them.

What about also making as many teams as you want?? Pair people up in teams of 2 with 8 teams at a time. Have 4 teams of 4 all gunning for the other teams flags. Maybe you have to capture each one, maybe in a certain order.

My last comment now for teams - allow the ai to play. For those who want a good game but can't find another 4 people to come over right away while you have the addiction running through your veins. Maybe set their ai levels of their basic strategy, defend, or rush. Put ai on your own team.

As for the game itself - the last one was amazing for a first run. I have no doubt the second will become a legend the same day it's released. I would like to have the ability of having 4 ppl vs the main storyline for some amazing blood shed. What I love about the game is there is no point where you have to kill some kind of "boss" using the same repetitive motions over and over again. IF there is some kind of mass being that needs to be killed, give it enough ai that strategy may have to change.

For an added weapon - have you ever seen the movie Eraser????

This seem like an obvious thing for a PC game (indeed, it's more or less expected to Mac/PC Halo 1), but it's difficult on any console. If for no other reason than the control scheme is pretty nonconducive to complex layouts, etc. It might be iffy.,,

How would you roll in first person? You'd get seasick :)

This is sort of a no-brainer; I can't imagine why we weren't allowed to have multiple teams in the first one. I'd bet it's in the pipe.

Good Lord - enemies would have to be EXPONENTIALLY better. ONE MC kicks ass; TWO dominate. FOUR could lay waste to the Halo :)

Possibly. But possibly not.

Halo's AI seems to be heavily hinted-- their actions depend on information about the level they are in. (Butcher mentioned this somewhere, not sure where exactly, but it was covered quite heavily during the "why no bots" phase just before the release last year. The answer was partially it was a time constraint, and partially that Halo's AI got lots of the info it needed to fight you properly from contextual hints in the level design.

In short, it seems they've replaced the kind of hacks bots usually use (360 degree vision, superhuman accuracy, knowledge of all item locations) and replaced it with writing on the walls-- the AI knows which rocks are good to hide behind not because it processes the visual information about the level like you do, but because the engine holds up a big sign that says "hide here".

Ever notice all the places in Halo where the enemy has great cover and uses it well, and you don't get any? :)

things that I would like to see for the sequel to halo

things I would like to see in halo 2. I would like to see the game have some things if possible.

1. a weapon that can shoot through walls and hit opponents
example. Magnetic rail driver in Red Faction

2. gain more power as you go, such as active camoflague as a future augmentation, some other inventive things like self diagnostics and repair, etc.

3. I like the sound track of Halo1 but I would like the option to play my own songs that I have uploaded to my xbox. that is a feature I would like more games to take advantage of.

4. and I think something to do with submersive combat would add an edge to the game.

i think the idea of being able to fly a pelican or longsword is a good one but the idea of being able to get out the pilot seat and shoot people, NO. If u had a passanger then they could do it but being high up with a sniper rifle in a thing that can move would be just 2 big an advantage and would be a losers way of winning. It takes no skill. Just point and aim. Just like the banshee if u get out of the pilot seat it should start to fall with no one at the controls. but if u were about dead then get out and watch as the vehicle goes crashing toward the ground or even your mate for fun.

What's a trak?

: And I should be able to speak to the marines; things like

No idea if this will be in Halo 2. IIRC the idea was shot down in the first game, as it was felt this made playing too complicated.

: You shall be able to play 4 players on co-op!

I'd like to see this. But on multiple boxes, not split screen. I hate split screen. Also, I'm not sure this can be done-- it may be that Halo's solo levels are too large to transmit an accurate and timely world state over ethernet. Dunno.

: I want to see a human aircraft!
: You should be able to choose different characteers in

If I had to guess, I'd say something like this will happen...

: You should be able to fly in multiplayer!
: Enemys could be in the same car in multi!

huh?

: I DON'T want to see "popcorn and co(the Flood)" because
: they are so boring to fight!

Again, I'd guess we'll see the Covenant again for sure, not sure about the Flood-- possibly them and/or another mystery opponent.

: You should be able to holster you weapon(by holding Y or
: somethig)!

OK.. but why? I'd like to see some nonviolent interaction in the game, but without it I can't see why holstering a gun would be useful...

: You should be able to choose exactly what kind of weapon
: in multi! For example: plasma rifle, rockets, and sniper!

Hmm... sounds unbalancing...

Re: Stuff I REALLY wanna see in Halo 2

im sure all that would be nice especialy the 4 player co-op, but i would like to see the story line actuallly revolve around 2-4 ppl in the co-op in stead of just one master cheif. casue ur fighting with more ppls so it should show those guys in the story...makes sense right?

early Halo 1

One thing that I missed that was axed from halo was the marine sword. Rememmber teh screen shot bungie had on their website, the one where the elite is standing on top of the hill and a marine is coming towards him with a machedie/sword. Melee attacks are fun, but i want a melee weapon that is as powerful as the elite's plasma sword. Now I'm getting flashbacks of running around fighting through marathon with only fists. *sigh*

Re: Stuff I REALLY wanna see in Halo 2

your probly right about multiplayer, but they DO have all that "U TALK IT TYPES" tecnoligy so i think that it MAY be possible for some sort of voice reconition and using that to control marines would be simple. and if u say that it would suck because it might not reconize your voice 1)they could make each person record there voice 2) it probly will be very advaced considering it IS microsoft. on there xbox.com under online compareison it says MILLITARY GRADE ENCRYPTION so that has got to say somthing. and as for hijacking and all that stuff i have only one thing to say... IT WOULD BE SUH-WEET. lyk hijack and take prisoners. i think also HALO 2 shouldnt have levels but more lyk opperations. lyk it is an endless game no swiching between lvevls. lyk you go into battle and you are shot down (or maybe not) and have to find another way back. and you can travel all over the world and use SATLINKS and COMMLINKS. it sould be lyk that new pc game "EARTH AND BEYOND" the abilty to actually make a difference(wether it be good OR bad) and lyk grand theft auto 3 . you should be able to wander anywhere and have day and night simulated....... thank you

Things that I think would pimp out Halo2

I want halo to be everything it was going to be before microsoft bought bungie out... and more! I want more weapons. I want more responsive marines. I want co-op to have only 1 master chief, and 3 playable marines as other players (i think that would be so pimp - plus harder). I want multiplayer online missions over xbox live, where there are actually goals to be accomplished just like in the single player game, and the players can choose races and characters, not just colors. Voice control on single player would be awesome, I think. I do not believe it would complicate the game either, as previoiusly stated. Some elements of Halo are not complicated enough. This feature would REALLY put a player in the game. Vehicles have been talked about, so no need to go there. And thats about all i can come up with right now. Peace.

oh god... BUNGIE TELL ME IT'S NOT TRUE!!!!

Oh. My. Frickin god. If you've seen the Halo 2 screen shots, chances are that you've seen the new assault rifle with AND without the scope. This could bring up two new gameplay elements. One good and one REALLY REALLY BAD.

GOOD: Because you can see an assault rifle with a scope, and one without a scope, this brings up the possibility of add-ons for weapons, such as laser sights, scopes, and silencers. This is good.

BAD: Because we see both versions of the assault rifle, and no other weapons in the trailer, this could also bring up the possibility that there is only ONE human weapon in halo, and all other weapons are just add-ons of that weapon, such as an added shot-gun, sniper, etc. this is VERY VERY BAD. If that was Bungie's initial idea, I sure as hell hope they're reading this. cause that would suck. a lot.

That is all.

I honestly don't know what kind of attachment could turn a rifle into a shotgun. You can't add something to increase barrel diameter.

I think the fact that we've seen two different weapons means that.. well.. there are 2 different weapons. Either that, or Bungie hasn't decided whether Halo 2's AR should have a scope or not. Given that the game won't come out for more than a year, panicking now is probably a bit premature.

Re: oh god... BUNGIE TELL ME IT'S NOT TRUE!!!!

Rest assured, there will be a huge arsenal of weapons. Halo hinged on it's fun and dynamic weaponary; bungie won't just throw a good idea way like that. I quite like the idea of a customizable rifle.

Re: oh god... BUNGIE TELL ME IT'S NOT TRUE!!!!

Oh please!! Don't tell me there's gonna be a panic meltdown just because Bungie released a few screenshots of Halo 2 that IS COMING OUT Q4 2003! Geez has it crossed anybody's mind that Bungie has only rendered the one gun model and the MC with a few backgrounds that indicate what sort of environment Halo 2 will involve just for a 'show off and tell'. To clarify, it's still a long way off before Halo 2 will come out and if you wanna be really comparitive just look how long it took Halo to come out! When that first came to light a few years back (3½ years I think) the game looked really promising then and it's gone through some heavy refinement when it finally came out. Now I'm just saying that yes it is premature to say this kind of pessamistic crap now because it's still 1 year and a bit away from intended release date for Halo 2, give it a chance!!! If the initial screenshots look this good then imagine what it will look like after Bungie refines it! Adding to that the release date might be Q4 2003 but 9 out of 10 times the game is delayed because of further production or refinement of it so we'll probably be looking at 2 years, mabye more, mabye less, WHO KNOWS!

I guess we'll have to wait until the Halo 2 trailer becomes avaliable so it can tell about where Halo 2 stands on the Cool / Corny meter.

Just give it a chance! Don't be so pessamistic...

... what on earth made you think we'd do something like that?

A crazy design decision like having only one human weapon is an awful lot to extrapolate from the trailer screenshots.

Besides, there is no scopeless AR variant in the trailer (or the screenshots, which were taken from the trailer). So you needn't worry about over-reliance on modular weapons.

When it's good and damned well done.

Incidentally, one post would have been enough.

I'm assuming that was a technical difficulty. The "your message was posted" thingy doesn't show up in some browsers because of the kludgy way I implemented it.

Does this mean modular weapons will be used in Halo 2?

if you ever read any of the news stories, it would tell you that bungie has left all the classics and have added new weapons, i like the idea of sights though.

Warthog sucks like crap

In halo the wathog is the most senseless vehicle. The gatling gun is good, & the fact that it can hold 2 gunners is also cool. But There is no protection at all You are open to any enemy/freindly fire?! all passengers are to, making it practically a bullet magnet. You are also very very open to snipers in multiplayer. In Halo 2 the wathog should be remodled sort of like a Hum-v, giving protection to the most important people; the drivers.

Practice

All I can do is suggest that you practice because the Warthog is incredibly useful.

Re: Practice

i agree it is argubly the best in the game aside to the banchee. i thinkif it were covered it would limit you view for not only the driver but also the two gunners
