Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

I love Halo: CE, like the Halo 2 online a lot, and Halo 3 is going to the best game ever.

I don't even CARE about Zelda right now...

Halo, Halo, Halo, Halo...

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

You say HALO 3 won't go under your expectations, but a LOT of Zelda fans were very dissapointed with Twilight Princess. This game has a very big, if not equal to TP's, hype. Hype's are what give games bad reviews. You expect so much from them, yet they don't give EVERTHING you're looking for, so you complain about it. Trust me, people that don't get into any hyping will like it better.

Don't overhype it. I did with TP, and I'm punishing myself.

Yes, this game does look amazing. If I had a 360, I'd get it. It will be incredibly awesome, like the last 2. I'm not very big on Xbox, so I'm not overhyping.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

I know all the things that I'm getting hyped about are going to be in it is the thing... what I'm expecting is Halo 2 with more earth missions, more guns, better multi player... nothing ground breaking.

The only thing I'm a little iffy about is the new controll scheme...

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Well Twilight... it's good to see you're pumped about Halo 3. To be honest, Halo 3 is the first Halo title I'm actually looking forward to seeing in my collection at launch.

Keep us informed on the news and information and such, I look forward to checking up on it.


There's nothing wrong with overhyping. Keep in mind, overhyping is different than having much too high expectations of the title. And that's opinionated so... I'd like to suggest that everyone shut their mouths about a- anyone overhyping for what ever reasons, and b- how disappointed they are about Twilight Princess.

Isn't there a new scheme because of Black and White no longer really existing, and being replaced with bumper buttons? I'd say that's nothing to worry about. It'll be fine.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Nope nope... theres a new controll scheme... You shoot with R and L (when dual weilding) and re load each gun separatly with the top buttons (what are they called again >.>) So x isn't reload anymore... and all of X's old uses (from Halo 1 and 2) are getting transfered to the top right shoulder button.

X doesn't have have a use yet

(sorry if my spelling or anything is way off... I'm hella tired >.>)

What I think the controlls will be... (I'm just going to call the shoulder buttons R1, R2, L1, L2... The 1s being on top.)

A - Junp
B - Melee
Y - Change Weapons
X - No use yet
R1 - General Actions and Reloading
R2 - Fire
L1 - Cycle Through Grenades, Re-load (when duel weilding)
L2 - Throw Grenade, Fire (when duel weilding)
Left Stick - Crouch
Right Stick - Zoom

None of those button names are right but meh... I don't have a 360. (yet. I will before Halo 3 comes out though)

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

SO basically they made the reloading more in-depth. That's brilliant... the ability to reload one gun, while shoot with the other perhaps? How is it physically possible? Who cares?

But no... I'd have to say that control scheme isn't too different. By the way, there are L-trigger and R-trigger, and L-bumper and R-bumper. Not L1, L2, R1, R2.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

It looks pretty sweet, I'll probably end up playing it once I move back to where I used to live, where there's a 360 to use, as well as pretty much any other gaming console one could think of.

I just saw the trailer a few mintues ago, I couldn't look away. Pretty sweet.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Hmm...I've heard rumor that you'll be able to play in either third person or first. Also I've heard that there will be a 'cover' system like Gears of War. Possibly that will be the use of the X button? Just a idea...

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Halo 3 Should be good but for me Halo 2 was to short the story was easy even on the hardest mode. The online was good but had to be tweaked many times over sadly.

Hopefully Longer story and only playing as the Chief this time not sure if you play as the elite again but who cares give more Cheif Levels, and hopefully the online will be better this time around from the off.
