My thoughts on Bungie, Halo and all the jazz.
I have been a Halo fan from the beginning. Why? Because i have never had high speed interweb and the 1st one provided countless years of fun. finding all the little easter eggs and even playing the game on LEGENDARY!! Then Halo 2 came out. It was better made and better looking, but not as hard. Or as long. Which was ok. And the new skulls and the Scarab gun was fun to find. ANd i love Arby. It was a good follow up to me.
Then came halo 3. *dead silence*
This to me, was just bungie making a game to make money from the online playing. The game was even easier to beat and well, a Let down to me in the whole. That is all I will say about that.
The last 2 games were ok. But the story started to take a back sit in my opinion. It got less and less Epic (till Reach) and more focused on the online side. I really think this is because Bungie was not ready for the massive Juggernaut they made. let's face it, Halo is right up there with Mario, Sonic, Bugs Bunny and Ronald Regan. But Bungie being a computer game maker (which Halo was made for really) and then thrust into the spot light by a STAR WARS sized fan base I think took its toll on them. And them leaving Halo could be seen. All they ever got was HALOHALOHALOHALO!!! from all directions.
AS for the online stuff, They clearly took aim at it to make money. And I am really not surprised that they went with *gags* Activision. Acti*coughs*vision clearly is just a troll in the gaming world and all they care about is milking money out of us gamers. Just like Bungie did. I hope the 2 make a very good marriage of Fuzzing up themselves in their conquest for money.
Am i Glad that Bungie and Halo are not together? I cant say till the game comes out. Halo 4 looks good, but... so did the Bay Transformer movies.
i have said what i feel.
