Halo 5, thoughts?

I'm probably the biggest Halo nerd on this website. Most of the people on here who play games either do Battlefield or COD, so I don't think this thread will take off anywhere.

But anyways this is for the discussion of Halo 5, thoughts about it, if your getting, or why this thread was a waste of my time and precious server storage space for our beloved Tacoma forum.

To start:

I've owned and played through every halo game released (except for HALO ODST)
When Halo 3 was announced, it was the only reason I went out and bought an Xbox 360, if history repeats itself then that means I'll buy the new Xbox One.

That's the only thing keeping me from Buying the new Halo when it comes out, I'll pay $70 for it but dishing out over $600 in truck money on a new console does not sound enjoyable.

Same here about the xbox one, what got me loving the series was how it started out like a mystery with CE.

Whoa easy there, I'd bet I'm a bigger halo need than you. But I'm in the same boat as most of you, no one yet but I will definitely get one for halo 5 at the latest. I've played through every one several times, I always play through the first time on legendary so it's a good challenge and it makes it last longer. Actually I've played through most of them several times and I have a bit of a tradition, each time a new one comes out my friend and I play through all the other ones leading up to it, I've been a bit torn on whether to start with CE or Reach though. Reach's story obviously preludes CE but going from those graphics to the original is a bit strange. And of course I'm torn between the of CE and the anniversary edition.

I'm definitely excited for 5, I'm not a huge fan of where they've gone with the story though. I don't hate it but I liked the first trilogy more. Although I was a big fan of fighting elites again in 4, not fighting elites in 3 was a let down. So I hope there are plenty of elites to fight in 5.

IMO CE is and probably forever will be the greatest of all time, campaign and multiplayer, the only thing that could have made it better would have been xbox live although I do think the old system link 3-3 games I used to have in my basement with my buddies was much more fun than playing online

The good old LAN parties we had at my dads playing CE. Usually had 3-4 xboxes going playing for 12 hours straight.

Does anyone know of any good halo books? Not the normal story book, but more informational.

Halo 5, thoughts?

Halo reach is definitely my favorite. Now hear me out on that cause I know a lot of people don't care for it. The characters were all so in depth not graphic wise but on a personality level all of them had there own background story and the voice actors did a phenomenal job making it all flow together so that you literally feel like part of the team (which would make sense since you're noble 6) but you get really attached to these characters and I personally got sad my first time through watching them all die (spoiler). I like to think the way I felt was how 6 would feel, and personally I think that's what Bungie was aiming for when they did that! I've never been exactly hooked on master chief due to his lack of personality and not talkative attitude (don't get me wrong he's a straight bad ass machine) but there's something about reach that I fell in love with. Fighting along side Spartans to save a planet and it made me fall in love with the series all over. Also idk if any of you have seen the reddit thing on Emile, if not you should. It goes in depth with his personality etc since most people think he's the most typical on the team as if Bungie just threw him in like how every salvation movie has a badass character (I like to think of animal mother from full metal jacket as a comparison) I'll try and find a link it's definitely worth a read because it makes you completely rethink Emile and then you kind of rethink the game.

Now on another note I didn't really enjoy halon4 as much as I wish I could've. I feel as if Bungie was setting halo up to go in a certain direction and 343 just took it and made a sharp lefts I don't read the books and I don't play games much but maybe I'm wrong and it's following a long something but I'm just not sure up until halo 4 I was incredibly pleased with the series


Ps: I hate in halo 4 how there's no UNSC flying vehicle

Pss: I hated in reach how the falcon driver couldn't shoot anything.

Stoked as hell for halo 5. But seeing as how destiny is coming out soon...and they want to make h5 more open, itll be interesting to see what 343 does

Played every single one, even ODST, though it was horrible. Loved the forge capability on halo 3, halo 4 is really fun. Love all the missions and add on stories you can download. Haven't played in awhile. Use to be a huge halo nerd up until 3. 2 was my favorite probably, I tihnk because I had the most fun with it. I don't really play video games these days so I probably won't buy halo 5 or destiny. I'm a PC guy now.

Reach was a really good game, I made the mistake of waiting to buy it long after it came out though.
