My spoiler-free Halo 4 review.

Halo 4 isn’t Halo… it’s something new, and as hard as it is to say, it’s something better. 343 brought Halo into the current generation of modern shooters without copping out and making a CoD clone. Halo 4 is still, at it’s core, a pure shooters, without much digression due to loadouts, perks and so on. While all those things now exist in Halo 4, they have very little affect on the gameplay and all the little mechanics, functions and systems developed by players throughout the years, the systems and algorithms to winning matches, still exist and prevail over loadout specification in Halo 4. Every fan of Halo and gaming in general can and should appreciate this game. But that is matchmaking alone. The narrative and gameplay in the campaign and spartan Ops has been completely rebooted for this generation. Players always know the story and what is going on, without having it hammered into their skull with a gravity hammer. The art direction, dialogue and overall scheme of things are a great work of art and the way the story goes between campaign and Spartan Ops have completely opened up the universe for infinite possibilities within the universe. This game is the second coming of Master Chief and of Halo as a whole. long live 343.

 I think the only thing that would worry me is how the game feels. Meaning if all the background mechanics are in the game as they were with previous Halo titles (magnetism, friction, etc.) then it should be alright. I’m worried about the game feeling like Cod of battlefield without those mechanics. But I’m sure it’ll be fine. We’re in pretty good hands. And as far as the weapons go, that should really just be a secondary concern right now. It makes me giggle that that is what worries people. I know that it is a concern, but at the same time, I’m not too concerned. The weapons look cool and fluid, so there’s that.It all looks rather cool. Even the autosentry looks cool, as it didn’t appear to be firing at a fast rate or very strong shots. It kind of worries me that you can choose to spawn with different grenade types, but I’m not too concerned about that either. I just mainly want it to feel like Halo. And as per the “loadouts,” etc. I’m not bothered by it as it makes sense in the Halo universe. In previous games, there was only one known Spartan, so Spartans weren’t parts of a bigger team, they were just super soldiers that could do anything. Now, there’s a military, it makes sens that each soldier should have their own niche. I know you guys didn’t talk about that, but I’m just addressing it as I’ve seen it on tumblr before.

Forward Unto Dawn

Hopefully this series is amazing so that producers and shit will stop being bitches and pick it up for a full-on show and/or movie. I mean, the trailer looks amazing.

This. Looks. So. Fucking. Great.

Halo 4

These new Halo 4 images are making me cry. The beauty. The beauty!

The Guardians hate me and it’s so fucking frustrating.

They’re thinking “Brad, you supported Bungie, and have faith in what 343i will do with the Halo series. you had a pretty good weekend too! Got good matches, played very well. But now, fuck you, that’s what. You’re going to play against a full BTB team of inheritors with 3.0s, oh, they’re also huge annoying cunts. And your teammates will have a .50 and have no fucking clue what they’re doing. Good luck! Oh, and also, fuck you!”

Pretty much all day today

I’ve been playing Halo, as there is a 26,000 credit jackpot in Super Slayer and I’ve been getting shafted all day by the Guardians. Shitty teammates, betrayers, quitters, shitty maps, asshole opponent… the whole shebang.

And the challenges are 11 headshots in a match and 23 kills in a match, so I played multiteam, just to fuck around and get a shit ton of kills. For the past three hours, all everyone in the games has voted was Rocket Hog Race. Fucking. Shit. I mean, I like RHR, but I don’t want to play it currently. The Guardians really do not want me to have an enjoyful day. All night I’ve been waiting for Crazy King on Sword Base, and I just got it. I got 37 kills. Fina-fucking-ly. Thank the Oracle!

My blog’s overt theme is slowly turning into…

HALO IS AWESOME. FUCK YOU. IF YOU DISAGREE, YOU’RE A CUNT. LOOK AT ALL THIS AWESOME HALO SHIT.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way <3

I&#8217;m SO fucking sick of everyone complaining about 343i &#8220;ruining Halo.&#8221; They took elites out of multiplayer, get the fuck over it. Fucking. Cunts.

I’m SO fucking sick of everyone complaining about 343i “ruining Halo.” They took elites out of multiplayer, get the fuck over it. Fucking. Cunts.

For everyone. Go fuck yourselves.

For everyone. Go fuck yourselves.

What the hell… The March update restricts anyone who hasn’t got all of Reach’s map packs from playing Big Team Battle. That was my favourite playlist you assholes. Now I have to go out and buy £20 worth of Microsoft points or play Invasion for the rest of my days. Fuck this.

Oh 343, you’re shaping up to be quite an arsehole.

If I’m quite honest I am kinda glad, I never EVER get to use the maps that I have paid for in big team games and ESPECIALLY Invasion, I have only ever played Invasion on Breakpoint once.

Yeah it’s not fair on people like you but meh

I’m glad and all the maps, aside from the first map pack are fucking amazing and well worth it.

I’m happy for this. I love the big maps and I hardly ever play them. Good job, 343i. Also, you know why I got the maps? Because 1. I like Halo. And 2. I’m not a little bitch.

AND THE SILENCE WILL BE BROKEN
Word on the street is that the silence surrounding Halo 4 will be broken at the upcoming Microsoft Spring Showcase. March 5th to be specific. Similarly, Microsoft unveiled the Defiant Map Pack for Halo Reach last year. Rumor has it that a new trailer and the chance to play will be a part of the reveal.
Holy motherfucking balls my Dick just got a little hard.

Thank Guilty Spark
