Alpha Site.
4th set.
3rd round.
5th wave.
14 lives left.

Then about 3 Fuel Rod Cannon Brutes come along with the Gravity Hammer Brutes, if the shots don't kill us the 'Catch' grenades do. All of a sudden we're down to 3 lives left in a matter of minutes.
I take out all three of the Hammer guys but I'm out of ammo in everything else and then the last 3 lives we have are taken out.
All of a sudden I'm the last man standing with an empty gun and a close-quarters weapon and no grenades. Not to mention I'm knocking on death's door as it is.
I take out a couple of Brutes, my team cheering me on haha, and then come up to the next one, he throws a grenade and I jump at him, blast him with the Hammer and he melees me which throws me back into the exploding grenade he just threw.
Game over.

loved all halos, so i picked up this one around christmas. wasnt sure what to expect because i never played it before, i just knew that we werent spartans anymore.

the campaign had some REALLY good levels, i enjoyed it alot. could have been made longer, it only took me and 3 of my buddies like 2 hours to run thru it. overall the game had to grow on me, at first i didnt like it much but after completing the campaign i realized this was a pretty good game.

EDIT: ALpha i love that panda reference from South Park!! are you really from sweden?

no BR makes me a saaad panda

Are you playing the levels completely in one sitting? No saving and quitting to come back later?

If you are playing the whole mission through in one sitting, then that sucks. I've never had that happen to me in Reach or ODST, or H3 for that matter.

I'm not bitching...I'm just saying-

I have two main gripes with this game. Firstly, I wish it had matchmaking so that I could just play a firefight or campaign whenever I wanted to. This is minor offense to me though as I haven't touched the game since getting 1k-

My second problem is much more pertinent though. I don't understand why when going for Endure a player losing connection should cost the rest of the team the achievement and attempt. Especially when it's something that can be over a 2 hour time investment-

Obviously the achievement states that it needs to be done with 4 players. Yet still, it's definitely harder to do with 3 people and the players would be getting no advantage, so why wouldn't Bungie just let the remaining players continue?!

My first attempt we got rushed and failed on the very last wave of the 4th set. My next attempt the following day, to our dismay, a player disconnected during the middle of the 3rd set. And after an hour break we got a new player and completed Endure on my 3rd try-

Still, the 4th set was far more stressful than it needed to be, not because of a lack of skill, but a lack of faith in the connection and this poor design of ODST is truly a travesty-

Game recognizes game playa...and you lookin' kinda unfamiliar right now-

Alpha Site.
2nd set.
3rd round.
5th wave.
0 lives left.
I'm Last Man Standing.

After doing the entire wave all by myself (yes, that's right), a team mate drops out midway through the next wave and we get sent back into the lobby. A good 70 minutes wasted. I love it when people drop out without saying anything, real good fucking waste of my mother fucking time. Like it wasn't enough I had to mother fucking solo the last wave on the third round. Fucking bulllshit ass goblin faggots. End mother fucking rant.

I remember when i last attempted Endure on the Halo Reach beta release day. Being in the UK, we had to wait for hours and hours before the beta was finally released, so some of my friends decided to try for the Endure achievement, and i joined them. We spent a good two or three hours playing, doing really well, until the final wave of round 3, in Set 4, and it all turned to shit. We eventually pulled out the win, and got to Set 5, and no achievement popped. After we left the game and went to the lobby, it took us a couple of seconds to realise we'd had it on Normal, rather than Heroic, and our time was completely wasted D:

Currently working on a Legendary Co-Op run with 3 others, so far 2 levels refuse to be completed without someone disconnecting. What's worse is it doesn't count as a complete level on Legendary unless it's completed from the beginning to the end of the level, the resume Co-Op game option is worthless. Not really a problem as it stands as Legendary with 4 players is incredibly quick & easy, what I don't want to do is waste my time doing the 2 Vidmaster challenges for someone to disconnect near the end and reset it for everyone.

Reading from other peoples complaints this is a persistant problem... Bungie really seemed to have dropped the ball on this one. I think I might just stick with 950gs on this game.

nope - not feelin' this game at all, but then again i haven't liked any of the halos except the first one. only reason i bought odst was that it was dirt cheap and to breeze through the campaign. not sure why people love these halo games so damn much - i don't think i'll ever figure it out.

I honestly need to bitch about all of the Fire fight achievements.

Things that annoy me:
No matchmaking for fire fight
Lots of lag
If one player disconnect the game ends (the worst)

Thanks, Bungie.

This game was actually the first Halo since Halo 1 that I truly enjoyed.


1. No Firefight matchmaking
2. Way more lag than there is any excuse for
3. No continuing if someone loses connection

makes Frost a dull boy. (kudos if you get the reference)

I actually didn't mind no competitive multiplayer as I have never been able to get into competitive FPSes on consoles as I originated as a PC gamer; I play them, but I do it in small bites because playing with the controller handicap eventually will piss me off between 30 minutes and 3 hours of play. But they should have put in matchmaking for Firefight, there was NO excuse for that.

A million and one times this. I mean what were they thinking. Holy shit is it stupid. It's one of those things which you can't imagine it being released without some dev spotting it.

Defies logic.

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.
Seems like the guy who left out on you is just being a dick for the sake of being a dick. It would only take another 20 minutes or so. Not like 3 hours, just hang it out. What an ass.

Thanks to Cpt Slaughter for the amazing sig!

Someone said that the game is "touchy" and I have to agree.. like the rest of the halos.. these cheevs and everything are just too specific.. I dont remember what I did but I finished the game without getting that Super Sleuth cheev... just went back through it all making sure not to mess with any settings or even go anywhere else besides "resume solo campaign" from the main menu. It looks like a lot of people feel the same with these Vidmaster cheevs as well. Hahaha... ugh... they just had to add these cheevs in there. Apparently that 4 player firefight cheev was originally on Legendary till they realized the difficulty of it. I dont know but I hope I can manage. Good luck to you all.
Till The End

I haven't really played it yet, but I just want to say that some of the design choices behind Firefight are irredeemably awful. Whose idea were those?
