Halo 4 – Written Review

Halo 4 is about to be set out into everyone’s hands and it’s an exciting time for video games. Does the game live up to the hype set up from Bungie though? Did 343 Industries handle the franchise with care? The answer to both I believe is yes. I will go into further details after the jump, but if you were looking for more Halo, this is the game for you. The game tries very little to change things up, if at all. The graphics, sounds, presentation and gameplay are all impressive; however, the campaign and Spartan Ops leave a lot more to be desired.

Bungie Farewell To Halo 2 Might Not Be As Big As We Thought

Alright, so earlier this week we posted about Microsoft announcing the shutdown of Live for the original Xbox. In preparation Microsoft took down all of the DLC for the originals, including Halo 2’s. Well Bungie had planned to play the game on April 15th, the day Live goes down but now maybe the party might be a bit smaller. Why? Well the matchmaking for Halo 2 requires you to have all the DLC, and odds are if you have all the downloadables, you’re still playing the game. I was planning on borrowing an original Xbox to do a live stream of the last moments of the system’s online, but that looks like it won’t be happening anymore.

The fanatics have pointed out that you can get the Halo Multiplayer Map Pack disc, however 3 maps were released after this. Bungie are aware of this and plan to do something about it, what? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe the DLC will go back up? That or they could just change the playlists to not include those maps.

Bungie Says No To Rumours

This screen shot led to a bunch of speculation out of the community, but Bungie shot them all down in a recent blog post. The speculation was either a bullet time mode, much like Fallout 3’s VATs. Also that it could be Natal support, but alas Bungie say it’s a glitch and even has a bug report to go along with it. The glitch occurs only in the capturing of photos, during regular gameplay it seems fine, you can bet it’ll be fixed by release.
