Halo 3: ODST Bitching Thread
 
I'm tired of seeing so many "This game sucks", "Are you disappointed", etc. type threads. If you have to bitch about the game, do it here. Should you ignore this thread and make your own "bitching" thread, it will be deleted and you will be infracted.

tmcmullen08 10-01-2009 10:39 PM

Seems like bitching threads are the thing now, ever since Gears 2.

JCDRANZER 10-01-2009 10:47 PM

Thank god you deleted those threads. Its a bit disheartening seeing so many ppl say that they dislike this game. I absolutely love it and I enjoy it as much as I do with Halo 3. I love the campaign and firefight but most of all I love the soundtrack, which is just beautiful to listen to. The only thing is that the achievements are too easy to get and its short but then the shortness of the campaign can still be a good thing.....it reminds me of the days when I use to try doing the alternative pathways in Lylat Wars (aka Star Fox 64).

I am currently helping a friend get all the achievements for Halo 3: ODST and Halo 3. I don't mind doing ENDURE again....I am gonna help 3 ppl to get it.....just try and have a good connection and everything will be fine. :) I guess this is only the other way I can find replay value for this game. =)

jamieCR7 10-01-2009 10:59 PM

Just to clear up, my thread was simply stating to an achievement, no directly bitching about a game that I actually enjoy, apart from the Chasm Ten map obviously. :D

My biggest gripe about this game is the lack of matchmaking support for firefight... How did they neglect that? The lack of matchmaking to find people to play firefights with has severely hampered my replay value of the game.

Other than that...

The game is awesome! Single player although short was very enjoyable and well played out.

One thing I don't like about any matchmaking is that sometimes you get really bad people to play with or A holes that make you want to quit anyway. Matchmaking being left out isn't a huge loss, especially since anyone reading this is on the forum, and tons of people are looking to get games going.

I have nothing to complain about the game. It is what Halo should be and it is very much like every other Halo game. I was very pleased with it. But on to the bitching part.

The Xbox Live community NEVER ceases to piss me off! Getting Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu or however it is supposed to be written.

Set 4: 3 Skulls Activated: 2nd to last wave (reinforcements)

My friend's friends.

That guy: Hey. I'm getting bored and we can do this some other time. Seeya. (Leaves)

I wasn't even enjoying the game before because they are idiots but I put up with that for my friend's sake but when you're that close to being done with this and never have to do it with people you don't like again you get a feeling of, it is almost finally over, but someone has to ruin it. Wasn't even a funny kind of ruin it was just I'm going to be an asshole kind. I'm sticking with my Halo nerd friends next time.

yeah, i thought this game was pretty epic, absence of matchmaking for firefight was the only bad thing

Way to go off topic xD (I asked him too in a vistor comment)

Back on topic:

Its not really something im bitching about , however i do wish the Campaign didnt take 2 hours to breeze through, Firefight is fun and all but with the time it took to hit 1000 on this game it shouldnt have a $60 price tag on it, 40 or 50 would be acceptable to me at the very least

Hangman Records 10-02-2009 03:48 AM

I have no complaints other than the game being too short. I'd say the only thing really worth pitching a bitch about is the Audiophiles. That stupid dunce of a Strategy Guide Writer David Houghson screwed us all out of the only reason you'd even bye the guide for; COMM LOCATIONS. Screw you, Dave! Thank God there are enough kids who hurried the locations up on youtube just to be the 1st to do it. Gotta love the self-rightousness :D

But all things considered, I have throughly enjoyed the game. Hell you even got the old Automag from the 1st Halo on xbox. And with a Silencer! SICK!!! TIMES 2 ZOOM AUTOMAG FOR LIFE, BUNGIE! KEEP IT DON'T QUIT IT!

I'm with you on a cheaper price tag the game is great and all put it's on the short side and no match making the lag problems but all in all the campaign was heck alot better than HALO 2 and 3.

UCB Disco 10-02-2009 08:28 AM

Same with my post. I'll rant again, if the people don't mind. :p

I think the game is fantastic. Seriously. I thought the story was better than Halo 3, the Visor-mode was very cool and helped make the Mambosa Streets feel very creepy, the lighting was fantastic, and the not-Master-Chief gameplay worked. It really did. Oh, and Firefight is the new awesome!

However, when it comes to the Vidmaster Challenge: Endure achievement, I wanted to punch a baby in the face (No worries. I didn't follow through with this feeling.). I love playing Firefight, and this achievement had me intrigued from the beginning... until I went for it.

Not only is it semi-difficult to assemble 4 players together to get this achievement, it almost systematically "loses connection" in the 3rd or 4th set (For me, it was the 4th set three different times). When you invest 2 hours of gameplay to try and get an achievement, it's kind of like a punch to the balls when the servers just give out.

I finally got the achievement, but because of this Endure achievement, I almost don't want to play Firefight at all anymore. I know I will, but I am definitely taking a break for at least a week. :)

^this

I concur on this. I enjoyed the campaign. It took me roughly 7 hours to beat, and I enjoy the Firefight mode as well. Same with the soundtrack and such. I think its enjoyable. Anyone who's bitching that the game sucks, stop playing it and quit bitching :P.

Lack of matchmaking I'm mixed about because on the one hand, i don't want wankers who screw around on co-op or campaign when you're trying to get levels finished etc.

Kebabsaurus Rex 10-02-2009 12:21 PM

My comment which I posted was did anyone find the game a bit disappointing ?

I liked all the other Halo games and always loved the online for Halo2 and 3. Its what first got me into online.

I just think the campaign isnt that great, its OK. My major gripe was that the graphics just dont seem to have moved on at all from Halo 3.

In terms of the campaign, it feels because it is like a bunch of thrown together firefights.

Dont get me wrong I dont think I wasted my money, just think they could have tried a bit harder.

L0rd Tuck3r 10-02-2009 01:37 PM

The only thing I can bitch about the fact that all the moderators on this site keep handing out "Infractions" just for the Hell of it.

Io Haze oI 10-02-2009 02:31 PM

The only things that annoyed me abotu this game is the shortness of the campaign even though they said it was longer. (I played it on heroic solo)

Also I didn't think the music suited the mood of the game at all, thats just my opinion. The lack of epic music (e.g. the warthog run on Halo 3's final mission) for certain parts dissapointed me. Then when picking up the rockets when doing the deja vu, the epic music and to be honest I got more excited about going for the achievment. Shame that music only lasted maybe 30 seconds.

TpYourHouse 10-02-2009 03:11 PM

I don't think there should be a bitching thread, if you want to do that, go to bungie.net and take it up there. lol

Shadow087 10-02-2009 03:33 PM

For a thread for bitching there is an obviouos lack of it lol. I really enjoyed the game but I will comment on some stuff

My attempt at Endure the first time around was fun until the 4th set 3rd round 3rd wave when one of they guys systems lost power. Epic Fail. :omg
We got it though next time around.

Also I saw a guy bitching about the facial graphics....sure they are a bit off for 360 but ODSTs WEAR FULL HELMETS WHO CARES WHAT THEIR FACES LOOK LIKE!!!!!!

ok i'm done...gonna go kill grunts now :uzi:

Spanish Assault 10-02-2009 04:44 PM

This is awesome!!! Now if we only had a grenade to throw we could get rid of all the whiners in one shot.

I'm going off-topic now: -

I HATE SETSUNA....."I AM GUNDAM"....LOLZ.:p

Wow....Setsu u actually haven't seen much anime......I guess ur a rookie. (I've watched over 1000 different series over the course of 9 years.)

Well the animation in my sig is done by Production I.G BUT is not an anime.......I actually get LOADS of PMs at FTV about what my sig is. TBH, the guys on this particular forum should know this but I guess I'll spill the beans, its an animation sequence from Tales fo Vesperia on the Xbox 360 and PS3.........a GAME. Anyways, Tales of Vesperia has been made into an anime movie called "Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike" produced by Production I.G and will hit Japanese cinemas tomorrow (3rd October 09).:woop:

OK....now I'm going back on topic: -

I agree with the pricetag......I bought mine for 35 at play.com bcuz AMAZON were being d*ckheads.....otherwise I would have got it for 30.....I hate those A-Holes.....they took the pre-order bonus off and then put it back on the next day(the day before I checked amazon and then pre-ordered at play.com).:mad:

Then again 30 isn't bad for this game.........I've been constantly playing this in my spare time for more than a week now......I like the campaign...and it is why I am re-doing it currently. =) I am actually doing legendary on co-op....I pretty much do all the killing and dying, whilst my friend is in cover acts as my respawn checkpoint....so like we don't both die otherwise we would go back to the original checkpoint and the enemies I had killed b4 getting the next checkpoint will have to be killed again. It makes our progress quicker. =P

khaos dragon 10-02-2009 10:02 PM

it sucked
 
To short, screen to dark, visor does not work well on maps with light, lack of matchmaking in firefight made it hard to get vidmasters, $60 is way to much for a 5 hour game, Johnson in firefight is pointless if u can show him off in firefight mode, and the coop had to many bugs in it. The only good thing about this game is it's a easy 950gs.

To assess these complaints I say this, the reason why the campaign was so short is because the game was meant to be an expansion, not a full game. The visor is used as a Halo night vison, you're not suppose to run around on a well lit map with night vision goggles on, unless you want to suck. The lack of matchmaking is a let down, but that's what friends are for. If you don't have any, get some on these forums. As for the Vidmasters being too hard, well we're sorry Bungie didn't make them unlock as soon as you loaded up the game, stop crying and figure it out. The real gripe is that the game should have been $40, but Microsoft just couldn't pass up an opportunity to make money, blame them, not Bungie.

ZanKioH 10-02-2009 10:18 PM

Why Bitch?

Stupidly Easy 1000GS for a Top Retail Game >.>

jab1981 10-02-2009 10:29 PM

I'll toss in my bitching, not because I felt the need but because the thread existed! I am somewhat pissed off at the game. I bought this game for the same reason I bought most games, to play through with my wife. We love to co-op game. Sadly far too many games have co-op but tend to screw over one of the two people playing the game. We really figured a game by Bungie would be above any of the usual complaints. After all we loved Halo 3's co-op play...

However ODST started out badly immediately. Lacking any "save and quit" function like the single player mode has we initially lost half of our progress through the campaign. The save data was just lost. It was probably because I enabled a skull for our initial playthrough, and at some point realized it was still on and turned it off. That's the only reason I can gather that it would wipe our save completely. So we restart again. This time I learn to go to "end game" and that more often than not our co-op save would still be there. We manage to finish the game with only a minor problem. We ended up having to quit a level early, we came back and resumed the level... but we didn't get credit for it. Only a small ordeal, but once again we had to replay a level to get credit.

And finally, the one I'm most pissed off about at present is the audio logs. We just spent the past hour or two going through the unlocked streets to collect all 29 logs... found them all. Went to "end game" to replay another level to get the 30th log. Something that works for a solo player who has the option of "save and quit". But on co-op without that option... all 29 audio logs are erased and we're back at 0. Now we get to sit down and find all 29 audio logs again for a few hours and replay every single level in the game to get to the 30th log. This lack of polish on a game this major is astounding. I haven't played a major, "big budget" game with such a poor implementation of co-op. It's something Gears of War got right in both versions of it's game with cog tags and a wonderful co-op save system. And from what I recall they even got it right with Halo 3! This has made the entire co-op aspect of the game such a pain in the butt that I can't even tell if I actually liked the game any longer. It's just been a constant frustration.

khaos dragon 10-03-2009 02:24 AM

yea
 
I didn't say the vidmasters were hard i said no matchmaking made it hard to find ppl for it, and like i said already the game is to dark as in u can't see. well now i have 1000 in halo 3 and odst i can sell them. oh yea i now that i got the 1000 i say this is a good game best game ever game of the year yea go halo odst easy 1000gs.

Edelweisz 10-03-2009 03:14 AM

Halo 3: ODST the worst Halo games ever 100%.
 
I appear to be in the right thread. Because I hate Halo 3: ODST more than anything!!!! This game is impossible due to the fact that Campaign Mode has no co-op feature. No way out of the very first mission. Die easily within seconds. Bungie was wrong. I can never imagine how ridiculed I was upon playing this nasty piece of trash game! No one! No one! No one! No one will ever defies video game series! Bungie has indeed committed a treasonous act against the video game industry. Halo 3 ODST is now "Halo 3: Overkilled Dead Series Terminated". The end. Don't even try to make me reconsider or change my mind to go back because I won't and this is the most boring games ever. EVER! EVER!!!:uzi:

Just in time for the fireworks, Bungie.:boomBOOM! To all your future!:whs

mdr manbearpig 10-03-2009 04:30 AM

I like the game. I dont like that there is no matchmaking for firefight.
Also u cant duel wield.

However overall - I think Halo is a pretty cool guy. eh kills aleins and doesn't afraid of anything.

What rubbish is this?

Did you not read the other posts here in this thread? THIS GAME HAS COOP FOR CAMPAIGN AND MULTIPLAYER <_<

They were given 14 months to developt the game. Adding matchmaking would have extended it to 20. They can only do so much. don't bitch at Bungie, bitch at MS for having impossible standards and a crap understanding of the software engeineering life cycle and proper methods in software verification and validation.

This game is pretty slick and I enjoy it. It's supposed to be dark because you're in the city AT NIGHT. I'm sorry if you're scared of the dark or something but that's how things get to look like when you're at night. THINGS GET DARK.

I don't mind people complaining but sometimes people just make rubbish complaints without actually doing being properly informed or doing proper research.
