Title: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on June 24, 2004, 04:16:24 AM
What are you most looking forward to in Halo 2?

I'm tied between the dual wielding and the XBOX Live compatibility!  :woot

But the ability to jack Ghosts and other vehicles should be pretty sweet too.

Are you getting the regular Halo 2 or the limited edition Halo 2 in the metal tin with all the extra goodies? I have the Limited Edition pre-ordered. I want to pay it off before the game comes out so that I can be in the VIP line.  :D

Live, plain and simple.......multiplayer halo 2 is the best thing that will ever come to the xbox!
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on June 24, 2004, 01:29:16 PM
When I get my GamerTag I'll have to post it and then maybe we could do some multiplayer with people on this board (after Halo 2 comes out, of course). That would be pretty cool!

it would be.....wonder if theyll have clans, too.....the GA clan would rule!

Post by: SpartanEvolved on June 25, 2004, 07:32:40 PM
The campaign. Competent marines, new enemies, and huge levels appeal to me. And, hopefully, campaign will have Live co-op, 4 player co-op, and system linking co-op.

Multiplayer looks cool too.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on June 25, 2004, 08:38:35 PM
Four player co-op would be pretty sweet. It would make taking on the Flood (assuming they'll be in Halo 2) a lot more fun.

Have you read any of the Halo books, by any chance? They are really good.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on June 25, 2004, 10:24:49 PM
Read and own all 3. Fall of Reach was the best. First Strike was awesome. The Flood was the worst because there weren't many new things the game didn't tell you(although it could have been the author).
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on June 25, 2004, 10:37:29 PM
Do you think the Cortana storyline from the books will make it into Halo 2? I was really wondering where they were going with that. I also want to know what the doctor chick (can't remember how to spell her name at the moment) was planning on doing with Kelly. It left a lot of questions, IMO. I'm hoping they'll be answered in Halo 2.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on June 27, 2004, 12:47:22 PM
I think it would be cool if you could play as the other Spartansin side missions

I wonder where Dr. Halsey and Kelly went....
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 01, 2004, 07:16:47 PM
I don't really like any of the great additions any more than another.  I think they're all great, as long as Halo 2 lives up to the hype (which I'm sure it will).
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Grindspine on July 03, 2004, 04:08:15 PM
All I know that is that I saw a screenshot of Halo 2 with the Master Chief(s) DUEL WEILDING human and plasma weapons...   awesome...
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 03, 2004, 04:32:29 PM
Too bad you can't dual weild 2 handed weapons or the plasma sword........
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 04, 2004, 10:00:16 AM
That's be cool.  I'm just wondering how when you play Halo, and fall from a distance, he gets hurt or killed, but yet in one of the movies announcing Halo 2 he jumps out of a spacecraft in orbit and lives to tell the tale?  Also, if MC can flip over a 66 ton tank with ease, why does it take a few hits to melee something to death in Legendary?
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 04, 2004, 11:38:42 AM
^ good questions. The fall one is to make the game harder to screw up. For instance, on AotCR, you could just jump off the bridge, no tricks or anything, and live if you didn't die mid-fall. And, how fun would any difficulty be if one melee splatered anything against the wall?
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 04, 2004, 11:40:26 AM
It'd be amusing if you could enter a cheat code to do that.  I think it'd be great amusement to hear "oh god, he's everywhere" and then watch him fly halfway across the level.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 04, 2004, 11:43:45 AM
You can do that if you hack your Xbox............
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on July 05, 2004, 11:56:58 PM
For anyone who likes to get the strategy guides along with the games, there's going to be 2 for Halo 2, and for some reason they are coming out in October about 2 weeks ahead of the game.

Anyway, one of them is a limited edition strategy guide that comes with a DVD. I think I'll probably get that one.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: silvergamer88 on July 06, 2004, 01:03:08 AM
Why on earth would they come out before the game? Weird.

Has anyone here actually tried hacking they're Xbox? It's supposed to be really difficult.

4 player co-op! I hadn't heard about that. That'd be awesome, though ammo would be spread pretty thin unless they compensate for it.

Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 06, 2004, 07:15:47 AM
^Yeah, sounds like it would be.  The only problem, other than ammo, that I can see about 4 player coop is the screen'll be so small you'd need a telescope.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on July 06, 2004, 10:27:00 AM
Well, split screen is not that bad if you have a descent sized TV. Mine's a 27 inch flat screen and I don't have a problem playing four-player splitscreen.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 08, 2004, 11:31:23 AM
Lucky you. I hope in Halo 2, if your vehicle gets shot, you dont take damage. That way, it gives people incentive to use skill to shoot out the driver instead of demolishing the vehicle.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: silvergamer88 on July 08, 2004, 12:06:27 PM
That would be cool, though harder for beginners. If the vehicles are destructible, when one is blown up, does another appear where the original was?
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on July 08, 2004, 05:56:47 PM
Yeah, they respawn.  :lol

Well, they did in the Halo 2 demo that Bungie showed at Microsoft's E3 press conference. They might take that out before the game itself launches, but I think they'll leave it in.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: mastermario on July 08, 2004, 07:34:56 PM
yeah, because it would be easy to place it somewhere and destroy the treads or tires and noone could move it
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 09, 2004, 08:44:32 PM
Yeah, they respawn.  :lol

Well, they did in the Halo 2 demo that Bungie showed at Microsoft's E3 press conference. They might take that out before the game itself launches, but I think they'll leave it in.

I think the vehicles spawn, but that was a demo. I mean, if the rocket Launcher and plasma sword both spawn at the start for the attackers, the defenders are going to get blown up/chopped up every 10 seconds.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: Mai Valentine on July 09, 2004, 10:26:41 PM
Yeah. They might have just coded that in there for the purpose of the demo. I don't think the rocket launcher or the plasma sword will be that easy to get to. I mean at the end they showed the plasma sword hiding in that one little spot in the wall, which is where it's going to be in the final version.

I think the Warthog might be the same though and will respawn if one is destroyed. I guess we'll see when the final version comes out though.  :)
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 09, 2004, 10:46:16 PM
I am confident the vehicles will respawn, at least by default. Otherwise, people would just blow the vehicles up at the start. But there will probablly be options to mess with the vehicle spawning time
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 10, 2004, 10:53:42 AM
It just angers me with that rocket launcher how you can instantly lock on as soon as your reticle is red and you zoom in.  For hardcore players, there's no defense unless you're behind a rock.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 10, 2004, 01:27:06 PM
Maybe you can shoot rockets and detonate them in midair...........a LAAG or Stationary Gun could..............

Post by: silvergamer88 on July 10, 2004, 03:24:18 PM
What all new weapons have yall seen for Halo 2? I know of a few, and it didn't seem like enough to me. There's the plasma sword, the changed human weapons (no pistol, :() and I've seen a few new Covenant weapons, but not mcuh really in the way of new weapons....
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 10, 2004, 09:01:02 PM
Plasma Sword
Carbine
Battle Rifle
SMG

other weaopns were changed

Fuel Rod and Flamethrower are possibilites
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: silvergamer88 on July 10, 2004, 10:49:38 PM
Is the flamethrower any good? I never got to play Halo PC.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 11, 2004, 01:05:24 AM
Well, the flamethrower goes through ammo REALLY fast, like 5 seconds of continuous firing drains the canister. It is pretty good at close range.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!

I like the weapons from Halo, though. If there's not a lot of new weapons in Halo 2 I'll be ok, as long as they keep something like the shotgun.  :p
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: silvergamer88 on July 13, 2004, 02:02:55 AM
I know most of the old weapons are coming back, and I knew about the new weapons mentioned here aside from the flamethrower, I was just hoping for some other weapons to go with them, but I guess you can't have everything. I'll just settle for a plasma sword and shield, dual weilding weapons, and vehicle jacking.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 14, 2004, 12:06:27 PM
I believe that the only Halo 1 weapons that aren't returning are the assualt rifle and the pistol. Maybe a modified pistol that isn't uber strong, but the SMG owns the assualt rifle.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 15, 2004, 09:06:20 PM
I always thought it amusing that in Halo, the pistol was arguably the best weapon in the game.  That's pretty bad.  The shottie was nice.  I only ever used the plasma pistol from the Covie arsenal after I died in Coop and had nothing else.  Plasma pistol was great for taking down elites...
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 15, 2004, 09:32:20 PM
Well, the pistol is the best all purpose weapon in Halo.

The pistol is extremely accurate and powerful. You can get a 3 hit kill from any range with the pistol. Granted, I'd rather have a shotgun for close range fighting, but only like close range as in inside of a Blood Gulch base. All of the other weapons in Halo have major flaws that make them unsuitable for all purpose combat.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: mastermario on July 15, 2004, 10:03:31 PM
all of the covenant weapons have flaws........for example, they suck big time in multiplayer :p
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 16, 2004, 12:34:08 AM
Well, the plasma pistol is pretty good when combined with another weapon. One fully charged shot drains their shields, and the other weapon can finish them off. Needler is horrible, its needles need to explode on impact. Usually if you kill someone with a needler, they kill you as well. Plasma rifle is decent as long as you don't let it overheat.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: mastermario on July 16, 2004, 01:02:20 PM
but plasma pistol shots tend to miss other humans that are moving around because they react too quickly
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on July 16, 2004, 02:04:37 PM
True, but the Plasma Pistol is probablly the most compatable weapon in a combo. 1 shot to drain the shields, and almost any other weapon will make quick work of their remaining health.

Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!

The plasma pistol was good against the Sentinels, though. One hit kill if you charged the plasma pistol and got a good shot at the Sentinel.

Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: trkorecky on July 29, 2004, 02:51:20 PM
Yeah, they're really into security when you beta test.  I tested Everquest Online Adventures: Frontiers for the PS2 and I had to agree to numerous pages of "DO NOT SHOW ANYTHING TO OTHER PEOPLE.  DO NOT TELL OTHER PEOPLE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME.  WHEN THE BETA TEST IS OVER, DO NOT TELL PEOPLE ABOUT THE BETA VERSION." etc.  I guess there were things in there that they didn't want other people to know about?

My GameStop had to stop taking pre-orders for launch date Halo 2 Collector's Edition. I guess the allocated amount was already reached. We're still taking pre-orders for it, but the people who pre-order it now won't get it until Nov. 16. I'm glad I pre-ordered before the cut-off.

Hype sucks.  It's ruined games in the eyes of the gamers (Fable anyone?).  Hopefully Halo 2 won't fall victim to it.

Either way, I want this game now! :D
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!

Halo 2 pre-sells have topped 1.5 million in the US alone.  :D

Also, many of the people who have illegally played the game (darn leak!) say that Halo 2 lives up to the hype, so I'm not that worried.

It's been confirmed: No online co-op in Halo 2


Quote
October 25, 2004 - In the days approaching Halo 2's release, Microsoft has started revealing crucial information about the big picture surrounding Halo 2. As such, Microsoft officially told IGN today there is no online two-person cooperative play (in either Xbox Live! or System Link) in Halo 2.


The two-player cooperative function found in Halo 2 is just like it was in the original Halo. It enables two people, offline, to play through the single-player game cooperatively using a two-way split-screen.

Bungie, a developer that always provides superb multiplayer options, must have considered including such an option at some point, but Microsoft did not officially specify why. Also, although the media and fans alike have speculated about Halo 2's online two-player cooperative play for some time, Microsoft never officially announced for these functions for Halo 2.

Microsoft, however, did clarify an interesting new online feature, first revealed in EGM. Four people can play Halo 2 online using one Xbox via four-player split-screen. One player logs in to Xbox Live! using his or her account, while the other three play as guests.
Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: mastermario on October 26, 2004, 05:06:45 PM
Well, that sucks, Co-op would be a great feature, too bad they didnt decide to go with it.....

The Atv might be back in. At halo 2.com, there is clearly a picture of the ATV where a broken up Warthog once was. Can't post a link, the site is all flash. Interesting, since the website was made after they announced no ATV. I hope this one is in. Pirates say no, but then again some people also say the halo 2 leak was intentional (an incomplete version missing levels, weapons, enemies etc.)

Title: Re: All purpose Halo 2 thread!
Post by: SpartanEvolved on November 10, 2004, 12:19:18 PM
Well, they could patch it. But really, they made it so if you want a high rank, you will have to play every map in every gametype. Unfortunately, that makes it harder for people (who don't want a high rank and just want to have fun) to find the kind of match they are looking for. I do not know how unranked games go, maybe they have a server list. But your best bet is to make a mtach and invite your friends.

But I do like Beaver Creek, which is the new version of Battle Creek.

They were long ago announced to be in.

And MM, the reason it took forever for them to get in is because the game is trying to "find" a match for you to join.

Yet, you will go gently into the night sweet Prince of FPS's!

Sure I lost and I suck at Halo, but look at that kill streak :D

I wanna send this off before the servers are shut down. I may not like the Halo franchise anymore but, it will forever be a big part of my past.

After finishing Halo 4, I revisited Halo 2.  The storyline is so much better in Halo 2!  The music is better.  The characters are more personable.  The only thing that Halo 4 improved upon were the graphics.

I am also so glad that Halo 3 carried the dual-wielding mechanic from Halo 2...

Halo 2 was the best multiplayer experience I've ever had. 3 and 4 never quite lived up to the glory that was 2.
