[QUOTE=ChosenOne54;27428448]I've always preferred single-player games over multiplayer games, which is why I'd choose Half-Life over Halo.[/QUOTE] I rarely play halo multiplayer, and have many more hours in sp than mp.
I would argue that Half-Life has better gameplay than Halo, anyhow.

Hey [b]IT'S FREEMAN, LET'S FOLLOW HIM[/b]
[QUOTE=GrabbinPills;27422717]it's obvious, gordon freeman was a black belt in jujitsu, but a horrible sparring accident in 1996 rendered his voicebox heavily damaged. He also did several jobs, such as a crane operator, electrician, plumber, radio technician and military field medic before working at black mesa, which is why he can do all the awesome things that make us keep playing the game [editline]14th January 2011[/editline] about above posts, he's gone now, but he always does sigma-lambda techniques. he fucks off for a while, then comes back again a while later and NEVER LEEEEEEEEEAVES[/QUOTE] I find it hilarious how a few pages back, he was calling out CakeMaster for not backing up his points, while he himself (BmB) never backs up his statements. He also seems to dodge any well thought out arguments, and continue to state his opinions as fact over and over again.

GET THE NEEDLE, LET'S INJECT SOME INTELLIGENT AND INTERESTING DISCUSSION INTO THIS THREAD!

I almost never play multiplayer unless it's a unique experience.[/QUOTE] I agree, I generally play single player games. There are a few multiplayer games that stuck with me though, one of them being TF2. Halo's multiplayer is fun, but it certainly isn't the best. There are much better options. Same with Call of Duty. [editline]15th January 2011[/editline] Somehow, I have the feeling BmB won't be coming back to this thread soon. Pity, his 'arguments' provided me with much laughter.

I play TF2 and a few other multiplayer games because they're more than a glorified deathmatch. TF2 is VERY unique and fun. And I too will miss his hilarious excuses for an argument.
Yeah all them hats....
[QUOTE=imadaman;27436468]Yeah all them hats....[/QUOTE] I DO have to agree that TF2 has been getting less fun with all the newer shit happening. I don't mind the hats much but the microtransactions and overpowered weapons take it too fucking far. That's why I LOVE the idea of the Beta Valve made, it shows that even THEY realize there's something wrong instead of saying "Hey, it took money to make it, it's staying in the game".
So, I read the first six or so pages. Are we still talking about future weapons in here?

Fucking Needlers, how do they work?

Personally I'm a fan of the idea of laser and plasma-based weaponry, plasma is more sci-fi at the moment but still really cool, but the US navy are now actually using lasers on warships ([URL="http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=laser-downs-uavs"]for real. check it out [/URL]) as a kind of point defense system. One advantage of using lasers in space would be that they'd be impossible to dodge. You'd have to maneuver out of the enemy's cone of fire. Also, while it's been noted that atmospheric-style dogfighting should be impossible in space, would it not be possible to use counter-thrust to deal with that problem? The one realistic use of it I've seen is in X3 : if you roll in the ship while looking out the window, you can see a thruster shortly fire on one side and then stop, putting the ship into a fixed-speed spin, and then when you want to stop spinning, you see a thruster fire shortly in the opposite direction and then stop. I thought that was a really neat touch. Oh, and anyone into space dogfighting NEEDS to play Freespace 2. It's like a fiver off GOG. Get it :buddy:
I find it very amusing that the people on the Bungie.net thread actually seem to WANT the Covenant to win over humans.

If you've played Halo, you'd know that he is horribly weak in game. And contrary to popular belief, just because he says a few one-liners in game, that doesn't give him a personality.

Hell, the astronauts in moonbase alpha has more character than him.
[QUOTE=Lizzrd;27442274]Hell, the astronauts in moonbase alpha has more character than him.[/QUOTE] Well, yeah, John Madden can testify as to that.
Why don't we continue our discussion about the Combine Hunter Chopper vs. the Banshee?
I always thought the Halo tech sucked right from the first Halo game. I noticed it because it made me rage. The sniper rifle leaves one hell of a tracer, what's the point in being a sniper when each shot reveals your location. You can be hidden like crazy and you'll still reveal yourself. The warthog is the most unstable vehicle ever. You'd do better on a unicycle. Slightest knock and the warthog flips. The tanks and the weapons in general have the worst accuracy. It took a while mag of the assault rifle to kill a guy for me ... he was right in front of me. The assault rifles effective range is like 6meteres.
