I'm not trying to troll you, and I try to make my comments humorous and non offensive (fyi: that 'aw poor guy' comment wasn't aimed at you, but the guy you were quoting.) if actual offense was caused that was not my intent.
I agree with a lot of what you say, a BTB fix would be nice, rocket race awesome as well and the such like.
Its just for me they're not gamebreakers, whereas F3AR was a significant change not just to the gameplay but the engine, story and entire style of the series - but I still liked it as a game.
Same way I dont love Halo 4 - i have many issues, some include: despawning, short linear story, unclear plot, lack of FFA playlist, not enough vehicles and some major issues with spartan ops. But i do find the game very fun
Yes the map packs aren't amazing i admit (they could learn from Battlefield 3), but i do play them as i have them and its a change from the normal maps, but i do play the normal playlists more.
Maybe I dont notice the apparent problems so much because I was never part of a Halo community, so the impact on me will probably be lesser
And yes I have gone to the official halo forums to voice some of my opinions. I assume you too have some posts there so we're similar in that sense. I responded the way i did initially because every Halo story that came up had a negative post from you, with some of your replies being a touch on the aggressive side.
so... er yes, reply essay over i guess... hopefully we can be if not friends than happy neutrals with mildly conflicting views
Underneath it all
We feel so small
The heavens fall
But still we crawl
