The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm up for anything in a bit, though I'd like to knock out ODST on Legendary; someone else would have to host, I lost my save file. :(

    Dem updaets bee oop.

    EDIT: Male and Female voice actors confirmed for Noble Six, customizable voices available in Firefight.

    And there’s more. Noble Six isn’t the “strong, silent type,” either. Both male and female voice actors were cast for the role, so whichever gender you choose, you’ll won’t miss out on any facet of the full campaign experience.

    You might also note that I’ve unmasked another Armory exclusive in the screenshot above. In Firefight, you’ll be able to earn additional first person Firefight Voices via the Armory. In the E3 build, we let players listen to Noble Six, Carter, Kat, and Jorge regale them as they cut wave after wave of Covenant infantry down to size. Of course, there will be plenty more to choose from in the full game, but I don’t have time to dig too deeply into all the details. I’ve got some Firefight business to take care of.

    EDIT EDIT: Full list of custom options for Firefight, be prepared for the uber-scroll.

    Now go and add indents so it's actually readable.
    Edit: looks like you were already on it.

    I'm curious to see what "HAZARDS" are

    Looks like you can have shield decay... might be nice to prevent spawn camping in infection.

    Bottomless clips, YES

    There is an option to drop equipment... does this mean we can pick up armor abilities from dead people? Maybe have no equipment in your loadouts, you have to loot them off of enemies.

    Looks like you can give the players a bunch of lives, but only allow them to respawn at the start of a wave.

    Still one weapon and two armor abilities that we don't know about

    How would sheild decay help camping in infection? Or is it health decay?

    also the zombie color sounds interesting

    Zombies don't spawn with shields in the good infection games. With high shield decay, you could have them spawn with shields (to slow down spawn camps). Then after a little bit, the shield would decay all the way off. You then continue on to a normal zombie game.

    Edit: You could also turn on health decay... then health + shield vampirism to turn it into a crazy game where zombies are weaker the longer they go without feeding.

    So all the starting weapons are:

    # PRIMARY WEAPON
    # ASSAULT RIFLE
    # DMR
    # CONCUSSION RIFLE
    # ENERGY SWORD
    # FLAK CANNON
    # FOCUS RIFLE
    # GRAVITY HAMMER
    # GRENADE LAUNCHER
    # MAGNUM
    # NEEDLER
    # NEEDLE RIFLE
    # PLASMA LAUNCHER
    # PLASMA PISTOL
    # PLASMA REPEATER
    # PLASMA RIFLE
    # ROCKET LAUNCHER
    # SHOTGUN
    # SNIPER RIFLE
    # SPARTAN LASER
    # SPIKER
    # [REDACTED]
    # UNCHANGED

    so unless the target designator is behind that REDACTED, no starting people with it in WGE :P

    Also someone pointed out that the Fuel Rod Cannon is internally called the Flak Cannon in Halo 1, 2, and 3.

    So, finally able to start with FRCs?

    Really not a fan of having a Covenant version of every human weapon. They should all fill different roles IMO.

    Space combat looks dope!

    Weapon parity is even more important now that there's Spartan vs Elite game modes.

    I agree with you, from a canonical standpoint, but game balance and design take priority here.

    We've always had weapon parity, though. I just wasn't as obvious because bungie does a really good job of adding specilization.

    BR <-> Carbine
    Pistol <-> Plasma Pistol
    AR <-> Plasma Rifle
    Sniper <-> Beam Rifle
    Rockets <-> Fuel Rod
    SMG <-> Spiker
    Shotgun <-> Mauler

    Edit: The only lopsided bit is the Sword and Hammer.

    I wouldn't wouldn't really say the pistol and plasma pistol are parallels in anything but name really. In Reach it's a little more lethal but in pretty much all of the other games the plasma pistol is for taking out shields and nothing else

    Basement got flooded from super-saturated shitty soil during last night's huge thunderstorm.

    I lost like 2/3 of my CD collection and we're going to have to get rid of the brand-new carpet and everything.

    They're both close to mid range weapons. Both have a single fire shot per trigger pull. One has the capability of performing head shots, while the other has the ability to remove shields.

    I mean, I'll admit, they aren't as related as some of the others, but you can't really tell me that Bungie hasn't already designed weapons around Human and Covenant counterparts.

    seriously though. That really does suck. Hopefully you get it straightened out somehow.

    We were the ones who thought that Melissa was real. Why you might ask.
    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.
