    ALSO FYI, all maps to be considered for submission to matchmaking must be complete/tested by this upcoming Friday, as there's a cutoff for when they have to be submitted for the next community content push in MM.

    Can I get one of mine in on Wednesday's list? I'd like to give it a few team runs.

    When Joystiq says "COMING" not "RUMORED" - I buy into it. E3 is coming, there will be a huge announcement, and we'll all buy it, play it together and still hate playing it with Primus because he won't quit bitching about teamwork in BTB while we all joke around and have a good time.

    I don't know how you can complain about me when I haven't been able to play Halo with anyone for over two months now, so fuck you. Every time I get on it's "oh we're all done playing Halo".

    It's not about your actions, it's about your egacy.

    I'll buy the hell out of an H1 remake if it has the 343i/Bungie blessing. I don't see why the outsourcing is such a big deal, really. Bungie couldn't make them forever and MS won't let it die - if it turns out good, how will it be a bad thing?

    I agree with Willeth, they should remake halo CE and 2 with the reach engine and put reach multiplayer on a seperate disc with all the maps. And remake a lot of halo ce and 2's multiplayer maps either in forge or as new maps...

    Would it be suitable for the size required?

    Look at how expansive stuff like Two Betrayals was.

    Though if they are doing a remake, I'd like to see extra content from other viewpoints. Having a level from the view of say Jenkins in which they actually made you feel like a mere marine (rather then ODST style 'you're basically spartans') would be a nice change of pace. And something Bungie would never do.

    Something along the lines of Ghost Recon or that Republic Commandos Star Wars title would be a fun game to play. Also I know the game's titled "Halo" but lets see some of the other Humans vs Covenant battles across the galaxy dammit.

    Yea I like the idea of other view points too. Maybe let you play some of the extra stuff that was in the book. No matter what they decided to do people are going to buy it and people are going to bitch about anything they changed and anything they didnt change that they should of...

    There are two 3 things to me that really define the Halo experience. If any games made by other developers hold onto these 3 things I can be happy.

    1 - Color variation. Purple Covenant cruisers look amazing, as do the lush green landscapes.

    2 - Weapon variety that actually matters. I still don't understand the point of all of CODs different weapons when two bullets from any gun will kill you.

    3 - Vehicle play. This is kind of a no brainer.

    Swat
    Team Snipers
    BTB

    Or Slayer Pro in FFA I guess. If you're winning those that's 25 kills in a game. That means you could theoretically do it in 20 games.

    Yea but COD has 7 "guns" SMG, AR, Sniper, shotgun, Rocket launcher, Grenade launcher, and pistol. In these classes of guns it doesnt differ much.

    yep yep! fun times in Swat... it's weird how much I play that gametype now for how much I groaned at it being in the team slayer playlist. ._.

    From last BWU, goes live tommorow:

    Team SWAT: New gametype offerings are now available in the Team SWAT playlist. New gametypes include Oddball, Stockpile and 3 Plots.

    Or I might finally play Team Snipers :3

    I'd honestly play Team Snips if it got Objectives like SWAT just did. I don't really see the point if it's just another Team Slayer playlist though..

    There isn't really a list. Depending on what time of the day you might play depends on who you'd be playing with. Though it should be noted that while a lot of us in here hang out in XBL parties together, Halo hasn't necessarily been on our to-do list lately.

    That said, if you friend Fyrewulff, Ratsult2, or myself, you'll see us on when we're on. Usually late evenings throughout most of the week.

    Ok, so until my college gets their T1 fixed, I'm stuck on iffy DSL. The guys and I play offline for now, since Matchmaking is currently a pipedream.

    Can anyone link me or hook me up with the best maps PA has to offer? The default maps are starting to get a little stale.

    Anything made by Kor would be fine. Or just anything not broken. Nothing more annoying that downloading maps, loading them up, one person dies, and then they respawn in hemorrhage canyon.

    I'll put my Trips map back up for you tomorrow. It's a fun random looking map for social play, not really a solid MM map, but good for localized stuff.

    I've been told it reminds people of a paintball course.
