Once in a while I go on a binge and surf MM and customs for a bit, and man, I just can't do Reach no matter how hard I try. Like, it seems like the game's mechanics and weapon sandbox are a perfectly bad combo of sweatlord and self punishment.

I can play Halo CE cause its old physics and wack maps are fun, and perfect 3 shots with the pistol is easy to understand even though the reticule doesn't represent what the bloom does when you hold the trigger rather than quickly tap it. Halo 2's a nostalgia glitchfest and easy going, Halo 3's mechanics have been altered from OG Halo 3 and are a bit frustrating alongside the workable, yet unbalanced sandbox.

And then there's Reach. If you're using any covenant weapon and competing against its counterpart, its automatic loss unless the other player is a potato. You want to pace your shots so bloom doesn't fuck you? Get dicked up the ass by a guy spamming across the map. Tired of the bullshit bloom and go for title update physics? Welcome to DMR fuckfest. You want to play some good old brain cell killing infection? Have fun with pro sword clashers and dead bodies infecting you.

I really want to add Reach to the roster of game modes when I get into a mood for pubstomping or brain cell death in customs, but every time I try it just leaves a sour taste in me because of its bullshit mechanics and the fact that it spawned all the bad trends that still currently plague newer titles.

i feel the opposite for halo 2 and reach. halo 2 always feels so sweaty and stressful, while reach is usually easygoing

The secret to dmr bloom wasn't five evenly spaced shots
It was four spammed body shots then wait for your headshot

Yeah, I think I remember now. Still. I just hate how the game devolves into pistol and dmr spamfests. And I love how even if you spam body shots RNG can still screw you if you miss. Like I know Halo 3's sandbox isn't super balanced either, but you could at least make most weapons work against an average player if they weren't a tryhard.

Speaking of, I swear there's some fuckery going on in the port of 3. Grav hammer always had a huge knockback range, but it's fucking football field sized in MCC and it can jank warthogs way fucking farther than it should.

I used to be able to snipe with the banshee's and ghost's main guns, but either auto aim or bullet magnetism makes it fucking impossible now. And the scorpion is the absolute worst. I don't know how the reticule works. I used to be able to cross map snipe people jumping in mid air, and non registering bloodshots weren't that bad.

Now bloodshots are so fucking bad that you don't see them just on your screen, you can watch other players land a hit with an explosion on somebody and they take no damage. I wonder if it's because of connection changes. Double beatdowns were really rare in 3, now they happen a lot.

Tell me I ain't crazy here. The port of Halo 3's had some changes made to physics and registry.

Season 3 armor all looks like shit and I am not going to be buying tbh.

They finally put out Security Helmet and it's Halo 4 looking horseshit.

Signature goes here.
>Can finally play Infinite on my new PC
>All my settings are either High or Ultra/Max
>Everything plays fine even if the menu is a bit buggy
>Season 3 comes out
>Game keeps crashing even in the menus
>Frame rate drops when customizing my Spartan
>Game freezes and then crashes when I somehow get into a game
>Had to "optimize" the game with GeForce Experience to get it to not crash (as much)
>Lower settings now
>Customization still has frame rate drops
>Check Reddit, this apparently has been commonly reported among others

Guess I'll go back to MCC and Final Fantasy XIV until 343 decides if they want to fix this or not.

Cursed halo update was pretty sick. Glad the thanos is censored by default now LOL that shit was wack

Minecraft shit was kinda fun but the star of the show is still the D20 grenade and Blunderbuss imo

Dude named Zonda1995 popped into a custom game last night, threw me for a loop for a bit.

If that was you Zonda, I have only one thing to say about you quitting from the brainrot in less than 60 seconds.

Hmm...

I legit started Halo Infinite and just never finished it. It was just ... not interesting to me anymore and that is so sad, because Halo was a big part of my teen years growing up.

I beat the campaign in one sitting and never touched the game after. It felt so stagnant.

If I'm not here, I'm doing photography. Or I'm asleep. Or in lockdown. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is just normal.
Halo died for me when I got the Limited Edition H4 for '360 for Christmas in the release year.

Blitzed the campaign in like 4 hours, moved to online. Wiped the floor in the game for like 5 matches, then ejected it.

I don't remember what the campaign was about and I didn't have any fun.

MCC got my interest back, but only in playing CE/2/3/Reach.

If you know, you know.
I liked it, overall.
I still need to complete it solo Legendary.
If its wasn't for my backlog, I would be on that right now.

Campaign hit a weird spot for me. On one hand from just gameplay feel, I liked how streamlined it was. Fast paced and a lot of options with enemy types that had their variety of strengths and weaknesses, pretty solid.

I liked and didn't like the story. Can't really place it. It's like, yeah, here's a more personalized story with a bit of nuance, but it just kind of happens to be in the Haloverse, a time skipped Haloverse that feels like it doesn't want to talk about previous events, but it does.

Reach started a really hard sweatfest trend and I feel like every game after was the same thing in multiplayer. Way too sweaty for me and no room for fun.

Which really blows for me because infinite has hands down the best forge in the series and a stupid amount of potential, but I just can't play customs because it feels like the asscrack sweat of multiplayer just bleeds into the gameplay everywhere, which is probably why I just can't dig Reach customs either.

It sounds like nostalgia goggles here, but if they were able to add infinite level forge mode to Halo 3 customs, I'd call it a day and be content.
