Don't worry about it.
I can see the Imperial City in the background... It's still amazing though! I hope we'll get to fight the Nazgul, even if they can't be killed...
I so want a small 3D model of my castle...
I vote ODST drops over MAC bombardment any day. Although it'll be nice to have MAC rounds to take down Scarabs.
I'm so editing Johnson's XML to make him like Chuck Norris! I'll use him when I've got no other options left.
That poor marine laying limp on the command point didn't fare well against this fellow...
You should only have brief encounters with apes. Most of the combat should be against the gators due to the fact apes weren't seen as much as gators until the end of Halo 2 when they took the place of the gators as the Covenants main warrior race.
I hope for the Halo 2 and 3 beam rifle and carbine, I'm not a fan of the needle rifle or the focus rifle.
Excellent looking ODST!
I was thinking of this as well. It was pretty nifty in Halo Wars to be able to use infantry to fight light vehicles and even heavy vehicles if you've got enough men. The rocket ability is a definite plus in my book, or at least a substitute like mines. Although if you're making ODSTs with rocket launchers, that ability would defeat their purpose.
These things shouldn't really be labeled anti air. They tear up ground based units better than the normal wraith. And if it's anything like the game, I'll bet if you skillfully maneuver those new hornets of yours, they can dodge most of the shots.
That's the first thing I'm taking down in a group of enemies. It looks to be as deadly to ground based units as it is to air based ones. I can see two of these things taking down two or three squads of marines and taking down a vehicle or two's health with one burst...
Uhhh, my last post went haywire. It was meant to be after what Farseer said about the flood.
They did that in Halo Wars, I have to admit that it's pretty cool. When Spartans are close to there victims they also do some cool stuff, like an assassination in Halo Reach.
That is my least favorite level in the entire series... Have you by chance ever read The Mona Lisa in Halo Legends? One of the best short stories I've ever read. Although there is another story in there called Dirt that is pretty amazing too.
As long as the MA5B (assault rifle) sounds similar and there aren't armor abilities, I'm fine.
This may have been answered, but quite honestly I don't want to look. How are Spartans being handled? Just a few Spartan IIs that can be built, or like twenty Spartan IIIs at a time? Or just no Spartans at all? No Spartans would make sense because of their low numbers, but that wouldn't be very fun would it?
I'm sure this has been asked plenty of times before, but I couldn't find the answer. Can you give us an ETA on the ground beta? I'm absolutely drooling over the thought of playing this.
The Rebel heavy tank can switch between lasers and missiles, can it not?
Although I like the cobra as well, the UNSC lacks a bit in antiarmor.
So tanks can fire shells at aircraft? Halo Wars made it to where only the machine gun will fire at aircraft that are hovering still in the air, easy targets for shells. Although I'm glad if you are making it to where they can fire shells at aircraft, there will probably be some serious balance issues. I guess that's where scarabs come in, right? Although, tanks beat ghosts. Tanks beat hunters. Tanks beat everything!
I'm pretty sure scarabs drop from orbit, like ODSTs.
As long as it helps get the ground beta out faster, I approve completely.
Shoot for the hole! Then double tap him in the head.
I love the look of the HE Halo 1 pistol in an ODST's hand. But what's up with the non-shouldered rifle? He's like "Check out this shiny new gun!"
I'll bet two of these fellas can take down an entire UNSC marine squad.
Can't wait to see the next update! It's been a while.
Map markers would be nice!
Can't do crap about Longswords, can you Hunters?
The new hud looks 10 times better than the old one, and I can't wait for new maps!
Why is it the bad guys ALWAYS have the super weapons?
I've got a problem with no AI. They don't do anything.
They can't shoot at aircraft can they?
Man, there are so many mods that I want to help out on. It sucks being a mediocre modder(the only thing I can competently handle is small texture, model edits and Bethesda games like Skyrim and Fallout). Maybe wherever I go to college there will be some kind of class that I can take on the side to improve skills, so I can help out with things like this in my free time.
First Strike was amazing! It's my favorite Halo book besides Fall of Reach. I was really hoping to see the epic space battle over Reach in the game version, but was very sadly disappointed. My Xbox would catastrophically explode if 300 Covenant ships came out of slipspace over Reach to face the "Big Sticks" and huge UNSC fleet...
Well I hope that'll work! But something tells me your going to need to do something clever to take them down rather than just brute strength. Maybe the UNSC equivalent of a turbo laser will do some work on them? A Scarab shouldn't be taken lightly in any situation though.
Oh great, I'll have to deal with Scarabs... Speaking of that, the UNSC needs something to counter the Scarab. If MAC rounds are nearly instantaneous they could take it down easily, but what if you have no MAC rounds? Just thinking of the balance issues here.
First thing I'm doin land wise is making an army of swift pig death!
