    Serious questions for the Halo fans

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 October 2010

      Played any PC first-person shooters before you played Halo? Do you have high standards and good taste in video games? Are you not easily stooped by marketing hype? Played FPS/RPGs like Deus Ex and System Shock 2 Played a lot of PC strategy,role-playing games, and LucasArts adventure games? Hate Michael Bay movies? Are you well educated? Do you read books other than the godawful Halo...

    How's Halo: Reach's campaign?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 20 September 2010

    Expecting solid multi-player from a Halo game, is like expecting a good narrative from an RPG from BioWare. All I want to know how does the campaign fair? I've heard polarizing viewpoints towards it, but I like to know what you guys think. Is it as epic and memorable as the first Halo? Or underwhelming as Halo 2 & 3? Also, how's the narrative?...

    Am I the only one who has this controversial opinion on Far Cry 2?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 07 July 2010

    Far Cry 2 is one of the most "love it or hate it" games ever made, bar none. There's little to no middle ground, you either find it to be an immerssive and deep experience or tedious and nauseating one. Me? I'm in the middle ground, I don't consider it to be a good or a bad game, it's the pure definition of a mixed bag. I think people misunderstand how to play the game, the...

    Is the term "overrated" being misused and overused?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 July 2010

    The word "overrated" is overrated. Now that I got that joke out of the way, it's time to get down to "serious business". Now I don't hate the term "overrated" being used, it's good to not to blindly follow the corporate influx of the media. There are plenty of games I believe that are over-hyped by the media (Modern Warfare 2, GTA IV, MGS4, any game from Bethesda, any Halo title after Combat...

    What are your thoughts on Halo Reach's gameplay footage from E3 2010?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 03 July 2010

    For me, it was interesting but not mind blowing. Not that I have a problem with Bungie recycling the same formula (It wouldn't be Halo if it wasn't Halo), but the gameplay footage didn't blow me away as Bungie promised us. Battles didn't look as big or exciting as Bungie have been touting it out to be. Not that there's any good things about the footage, the Elites are back and the visuals are...

    Is Splinter Cell Conviction dumbed down or is it just different?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 July 2010

    I haven't played the game.... well not yet that is. I was a big fan of the first Splinter Cell and Chaos Theory, I never liked any of UbiSoft Shanghai's Splinter Cell titles. Now this latest installment of the series is developed by UbiSoft Montreal, but with a new lead game designer and creative director. It has turned off a lot of die-hard Splinter Cell fans with it's mix of stealth and...

    Does anyone notice the double standard and the bias?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 30 May 2010

    Alpha Protocol has been receiving mixed reviews from game reviewers, mainly from mainstream game websites. However, I found them to be pretty biased overall. They criticize Alpha Protocol's aiming and shooting mechanics to be imprecise and too reliant on a dice roll. they even criticize it for being buggy and filled with glitches. However, they praise Fallout 3 like it was God's gift from Heaven...

    Are we gamers afraid of change? Are changes made for the better or worse?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 28 May 2010

    Sometimes sequels to beloved gaming franchise stray away from it's conventional gaming roots to experiment with new concepts and ideas, this causes a stir and controversy among the fanbase. They often demand the developers to play it safe and to stick the game within it's roots, they simply do not like change. They're comforted by the idea that developers are playing it safe instead of them...

I'm going to state my opinions, I'm not going to go in full detail as I'm going to make it brief and to the point.

    Halo is the ultimate "love and hate or indifferent" game franchise around the net. It's been debated if Halo was whether or not overrated by video game critics. What do you think? Do you believe it deserves critical acclaim?  Here are the average percentage ratings of each Halo game from gamerankings.com: Halo Combat Evolved: 95% Halo 2: 94% Halo 3: 93% Halo Wars: 82% Halo 3 ODST:...

    Games that receive a lot of undeserved backlash

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 21 May 2010

    What games do you think receive a lot of undeserved negative feedback from the majority of gamers? Here are my picks:   Halo (Despite the fact I'm only a fan of the first Halo) Final Fantasy (Not a big fan of the series outside of VI, VII, and IV) Call of Duty 4 & Modern Warfare 2 (Despite my disdain towards Modern Warfare 2, the hatred it receives is ridiculous) Resident Evil 4...

    Could Halo: Reach be the best Halo since Halo: Combat Evolved?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 25 May 2010

    Of course, I mean this campaign and story wise. Most would agree that the original Halo offered the best campaign out of the entire series, due to it's large rich cinematic set-pieces and open sandbox like outdoor environments. The planet Halo gave me a sense of wonder and awe within it's atmosphere, something which has been lost in it's sequels. The story was also well written for a...

    Is the Halo series even overrated anymore? (By gamers that is)

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 May 2010

    Is Halo overrated anymore by the gaming community? I say fuck no! Not even close, hell it's a lot close for being underrated than overrated by the gaming community. Sure the media and journalists pay tons and tons of attention to Halo, but think about the gaming community. If you make a thread asking their favorite first-person shooters or favorite games, Halo is one of the least chosen games....

    Are the majority of female characters in video games are over-sexualized?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 May 2010

    Most female characters in video games are often sexualized with overly revealing clothing or really huge breasts. I say this is unfortunately a current trend that as happening often in video games, since women are portrayed as male fantasy sex objects and given shallow characterization. This tends to gives women a negative view towards video games and leaves a bad image for games. That's not to...

    Did the Halo series went downhill after CE, could Reach bring it back up?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 25 April 2010

    Of course, I speaking campaign and story wise. I say yes, without a doubt. Halo had a engrossing and epic campaign, the game felt like a mysterious adventure and offered amazing set-pieces. The storyline was pretty solid to boot, it had unpredictable plot twists that were never ridiculous. After that though, it became a straight foward action game and the story just became ridiculous after that....
