Halo: Reach Feature: Ask a Question Now...

So I've been glancing over the boards and been noticing a few questions, so I thought, I'll gauge the potential for a feature.

Tomorrow, if there are enough Qs from you guys, I'll write up a feature answering as many as possible, so if you've got a question about the game, the review (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/g...-reach/review/), the achievements, our opinion, well, pretty much anything (anything Reach related of course), throw them down here in this thread and I'll try and address as many as possible.

If there aren't enough, I'll just answer them here. If you've played the game, please keep the question spoiler free.

Happy hunting.

Does Halo Reach have any glitched achievements? I`ve found some threads on X360A that have been talking about this.

I'm still rather curious as to how they deal with multiple players in campaign. From what I saw, your custom Spartan takes the place of Noble 6 on your screen, while the other players see their own custom character. Does this mean that you do not see the other players in movie sequences? Can you talk with other players through them, and how do they (if it's even an option) handle skipping said sequences?

Guess I could throw in if there is any word on the Legendary ending. From what I've read there doesn't seem to be any although an interview with a developer lead people to believe that there would be.

That's all I got for now. I'll second the emblem question as well. I THOUGHT I saw the return of my all time favorite the drone in a Reach video but it wasn't in the Beta at first so I'm hopeful to say the least. XD

Two questions:

1. I second the glitched achievement question. Are there any?

2. Have they fixed the ridiculous usage of the Focus Rifle over 300 people that just I know about also complained about. Have they dealt with it being used as a close range sweep weapon instead of a sniper like it's supposed to be?

Can Halo Reach be installed to your hard drive? Or is it going to have the same issue with Halo 3?

The reason Halo 3 had the recommendation to not install it on the HDD was because it was released before that was available for the Xbox 360. Thus, the game was optimized to run off the game disc, not from the HDD. Since ODST ran just fine from the HDD, I assume Reach will, too.

Thanks for posting this, should really help in the weeks to come

My question is: How are the AI teammates in the campaign? Do they just shoot a lot of bullets making it seem like they are doing something or are they actually useful? Would be good if they helped since by the sounds of it solo legendary campaign might be tougher than the previous games, and I'm not exactly fantastic at Halo.

Anyone who has recieved their Legendary Edition, if they can tell me what the codes you get so that I if don't recieve them I can get angry at someone.

Quote:
Inside the disc case, you can find a code to download several exclusive pieces of content. There's a special flaming helmet armor affect for your Spartan (previously only available to Bungie employees), a cool Elite costume, and a Falcon Avatar accessory. This code also gives you two free days of Xbox Live Gold and a behind the scenes video delivered in a unique way. Rather than putting the video on a disc, it can be watched through Halo Waypoint after redeeming the code.

1. Kat's robot arm is available in the armory? (Please say yes!)

2. Aside from what we where show from the armory lets say you got helmet 1,2 and 3, is there a helmet 4 and 5 to unlock?

To clear it up not unlocking by cR but by leveling up or doing something else so it unlocks and after unlocking it you can buy it.

Think it's all if i come up with more i'll post them.

I have some questions in regard to your review:

1) I noticed you gave reach a perfect 100 for playability is this the first game on this website with that score?
2) Also Halo 3 has a 1% lead on reach in the reviews, yet you say its the best halo ever?

Haha don't take the second question too seriously that's probably me just being anal.

Edit: Another thing, after playing some halo 3 - please tell me the spartan laser doesn't make a return, that gun is sooo annoying.

During campaign co-op they said the difficulty would change according to how many players were playing. So, how much harder is it to do the campaign with a party of 4 as oppossed to doing it solo?

A few Forge World questions here...

Q1: How many people can I have in Forge World?

Q2: Can everyone who is in the game, help edit the map as well?

Q3: Are there options to turn someone off specifically to prevent them from editing the map, or must I turn everyone off?

Q4: Is there an option to boot someone from Forge World?


I use to play Kingdom for Keflings a lot, and random people would join my game and just start breaking/deleting buildings...I want to be able to open a public room in forge without worrying about something like that happening.

Can you have a four people split screen campaign (four people on one screen) or only two people like it was with Halo 3?

Another question. What's the size of Reach when installed to the HD and are the benefits noticeable enough to make it worth installing rather than simply playing off the disk?

I'm still using my old 20 GB HD so it's difficult to clear up space nowadays. Although if the improvements are worthwhile then I'll make room, of course.

Oh, and from what you've seen in the Armory. Will players be required to reach some ridiculously high rank to unlock certain items or will most be easy to obtain provided you earned the appropriate amount of credits?

I always notice an improvement on every game I install, load times are shorter and the game tends to run smoother...Plus the xbox doesn't spin the disk at 300rpm causing a racket...

As for the size, I would guess 6gigs or so...

Do certain game modes require an xbox 360 with a hard drive? I know that coop campaign over LIVE in both Halo 3 and ODST required a hard drive, as well as LIVE firefight and "theater." Have they changed this so some/all of these features work with a flash drive instead of a hard drive?

I've had to cut this off a few hours ago because the feature is already at 1,500 words and I'm still only about 60% done. If there are enough, I may do another one tomorrow. Look out for this later

And @Seven - do you really want to know that or do you want to see what happens in the campaign? If you want to know, PM me and I'll tell you.

What's with the names next to the motion radar and what modes is it featured in (matchmaking, campaign, firefight, etc.)?

I'll answer that one here...

That's the campaign and sometimes you pick up civilians/normal UNSC soldiers that accompany you on your objectives. Those are the list of those following and attempting to help you.

Neat. Do those who follow you do their own thing in the environment, or can you give them orders? Do they adapt to changes as well (i.e., ambushes)?
