Stopped reading at "It's a missed opportunity to go all out - to press the reset button not just on the rendering tech, but on the core gameplay". I'm done with DF.


well they dont lie for the fanboys, halos gamelay is meh at best. to slow, to simple mapdesign, a meh story with meh characters. nothing special... change we need...

You never played Halo MP... The gameplay is quite fast paced. Especially in the Halo 5 beta... -__-



i played halo mp, all of them, but i played good fs for years, and aginst tribes, quake and ut, halo is just a meh game, to slow, to boring gamemodes, to lame weapons..


But have you played halo 5?no you haven't. So you don't have an opinion until then about it being slow and whether or not It needs change



i dont need to play a game to tell if a game is slow or fast, gameplayvideos do the job...

Not my point either.

Prediction will be 900p 60fps.

I really wish Digital Foundry would go out of business. They have been a bigger detriment to gaming than an asset. 90% of people can't tell resolutions and framerates unless they are told. People who have played thru beta have been enjoying it and the these guys come along trying to tell people they should be disappointed.

I can tell the difference between 720p/900p/1080p or 30fps/60fps pretty damn easily... :p They aren't necessary to my enjoyment, but i certainly notice and value their inclusion (the former more than the latter in most cases though).

Just because you can't, doesn't mean others can't. Not unless you mean to imply that you are a being above common men, and anything you can't do is truly impossible for the rest of us? ^^

Haven't you read what he said? You are a minority. DF shouldn't do a service for you 10% minorities. Fuck minorities. 90% rule!

Or at least that was what I read.



heh

i think Halo 5 will flop, MS needs new IPs.


Thats what they say about every halo game ever. It will succeed. And let's ignore sunset overdrive and quantum break which are 2 interesting new ip's coming soon or have already arrived. 


well this time its different, this time its not made by bungie and the install base is much smaller on the X1. I think it will sell 2 million units and get mediocore reviews

Why?? Halo 4 wasn't made by bungie and got a 87 on meta critic. Halo 4 was bashed for its multi-player not  the single player. Halo 5 already has a much better multi-player. Let's make a bet. Halo 5 will definitely sell more than 2 million units within the first month and will get a meta critic above 89

It will flop and sell 2-3 million units, because

- people allready bought destiny on the x1 and ps4

- people got disapointed by destiny

- people got disapointed by the Halo masterchief collection because of its multiplayer

- the halo masterchief collection sold only 1.5 million units  at launch despite being the total wet dream of every halo fans (multiplayer issues werent known yet).

- most xbox 360  owners switched to the ps4

- they released a multiplayer beta that only runs at 720p more dispointement

halo 5 beta is awesome. dont know why you would think it would flop.



Based on this analysis, it's a day 1 purchase for me.

Really interested where they're going with it. Will it be 720p never dipping below 60fps or will it be 900p with noticeable drops. I'm not familiar with the fanbase of this game but would an option to have 1080p and locked 30fps be used at all?

I didn't notice the figure part, so only read "people can't tell resolutions and frame rates unless they are told". I noticed it just after posting, so added an edit. Of course, he won't reply with any kind of proof. Like always :p

Then what was your point? If you didn't assume that sentence was said in isolation, your comment doesn't seem particularly relevant to what i said. It was just an example after all; it wasn't relevant to Halo 5 itself.
