Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  1. It’s good to hear that Halo 4 has gotten the franchise back
    on track; I haven’t been all that impressed with any of the games since 2. I’m pretty
    eager to play this one. I’m even tempted to break my game-buying rule and pick
    it up; with Christmas on the way though, that’s probably not the smartest thing
    to do. I actually got the game-buying rule from one of my coworkers at DISH
    after Deus Ex: Human Revolution turned out to be a big let down. Now I don’t
    buy a game without first thoroughly play-testing it. So these days I rent all
    my games through DISH’s Blockbuster @Home first, that way if I don’t like it, I
    don’t feel like I just wasted sixty bucks. It’s saved me a lot of money in the
    past six months or so. I imagine I’ll probably end up buying Halo 4 anyway, because
    I’ll want it in my collection, but for now I’m putting it in my Blockbuster
    @Home queue now so I’ll get to play it sooner.

    The lack of ammo, cover and an interesting story made me go back to Halo 3. 343 has not ruined Halo in any way, but it just does not interest me anymore. The level layouts of the campaign are virtually identical to Halo CE, and the Promethean enemies on legendary just do not die. I can handle difficulty games with minimal complaint, but firing 400 rounds to kill one enemy while dodging 7 others without any available cover is tediously annoying. Fighting Promethean Knights with the little ammo that is provided is simply a pointless, incredibly boring back and forth. The difficult and yet enjoyable campaigns of Halo 2 & Modern Warfare 1 (on legendary and Veteran, respectively) are primarily brought me to purchase an Xbox 360. Now games like Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 are making me regret my decision, it seems as though single player quality has gone down the toilet. I will keep Halo 4 simply for the multiplayer, but 343 has wasted the second chance I gave Bungie after the debacle that was Halo 3: Odst. All they had to do was make something new and interesting, instead we got gyped by a campaign without even a single memorable or enjoyable moment. I am certain there will be those who disagree with me violently, and you are just as entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. But I never thought I would see the day that people who have been series fans for years (myself included) would be let down so badly as to consider slinking away in disappointed shame…

  3. The most fun I’ve had playing multiplayer since Halo 2, you my friend must suck at it, oh and you look like a puss
