Anyone who doesnt love episode 2, find a new forum.

Seriously. CoD4>HLep2>Halo3.

Yep I agree with that, Halo 3 is so fucking overrated.

No, Halo3 is great. HL2ep2 wnd CoD4 just happen to shit on every other current FPS. Anyone getting the H3 maps? I have the points, but I think Im going to just wait till theyre free(Spring). H3 MP just isnt fun until Latency is improved and melee goes back to how it was in Halo 2.

The multiplayer is great but the single player isn' t.

Why waste your time with any FPS if you have COD4?

Noob? Sorry but Im a 47. H3s melee is for noobs. Even if you melee first, the other person has up to 1 sec. to melee you back, and then it determines who dies by most health. Combine that with the Spray-R and its whoever saw the other person first, no accuracy required. Now STFU, nubcake.

lol bring it on. Yes, the melee is flawed when you play online, but Halo 2' s melee system blows goats for quarters. " ZOMG I CAN FLYZ BY PUSHING B" It is inconsistent as hell. Inconsistency = nubtastic. Any nub that likes anything about Halo 2 doesn' t stand a chance against me.

I' ll get the maps. Although the price is a little steep for just 3 maps, it' s worth it for some new environments... especially the highly editable Foundry.

Downloaded HL2 last night, will probably get to it tonight in between doing things for the Xtival weekend.

As someone new to the Half-life world hopefully I can see what you are all going on about it for.

It' s a religious experience.

I really can' t justify buying maps I know I' ll be getting for free later. Just so long as it doesn' t kick you out of matchmaking for not having every last map that nobody plays, a-la-Halo 2.

Great Game of a great seris...Still can' t believe how jerky the 360 version is? after playing the near faultess FPS of COD4, there' s no excuse really.


(surely alot of People now understand why i bang on about 60fps in FPS and racers after playing 360 COD4?, feel the difference, see the difference? Like Day and night.)..

Currently playing:
Korg DS 10 (ds) /  Metal Slug 7 (ds)
Rhythm Heaven (ds) /  Fire Emblem (ds)
Super Stardust HD (psn) /  Virtua Fighter 5 (360)

I thought Half Life 2 and Ep1 were running at 60fps?

Ep2, Portal and Team Firtress are 30.

Right?

It is sad if portal on 360 isn' t 60 fps.

Inconsistency

Halo 3 is the epitome of random and inconsistency, especially the bullshit spawns.


till can' t believe how jerky the 360 version is?

When I tried to download the demo yesterday I got some kind of error message about not being able to get info from Live or something.
I could download the other demos though.
I' ll try again tomorrow to see if it works but I was just wondering i anyone else have the same problem.

Half-Life is always going to be a PC game. The 360 game is fantastic (especially compared to the abysmal Xbox port) and I' m glad I finally got around to playing it, but I won' t deny that it' d look better and run smoother on a high end PC.

That' s gonna be true for all PC vs. console comparisons except perhaps in the first year and a half of a console' s life.
