Given the delay between the Xbox and PC ports of Halo 1 and 2, it doesn't mean anything much at this stage. Once again though, I doubt we'll see a port and even if we did, they'd do something to spoil it.

The Gearbox-developed port offered a few new multiplayer maps and weapons, and it was promised that players would be able to make and share their own maps. That never happened.

Could have fooled me.

So...what have i been playing for the last 9 years?

Ah the intehwebz. Full of uneducated people writing articles without sufficient research.

On a serious note, this comes as no surprise. We never saw Halo 3, and as much as i would like to see Halo 4 on PC since i no longer own a 360, it's not going to happen. I'll be really surprised if it does in the future.

They made the game themselves. I'm sure they can remove auto-aim as they added it. And Gearbox showed that is possibile to do that with Halo 1 PC.

Why would that equate to it being like H2V? If they got a competent team, they wouldn't have aim assist in the ported version. Halo 2 Vista didn't have aim assist because the original had it, it had it because morons were in charge of porting it. Let me remind you that Halo: Combat Evolved had an "insane amount of autoaim" as well when it was on the Xbox.

Also, when did it become news that we're not getting a Halo game ported to PC?

I know that it is very unlikely to see Halo 4 for PC now, especially if it has just been released and if Halo 3 and Reach never came out for PC. I just wanted to share the news because they seemed to say: <<Halo 4 was specifically designed for Xbox360, it'd be a lot of work to do to port it so there's no chance for you to see it on PC>>. As I said it is very, very unlikely to see Halo 4 for PC but it's not impossible. See Fable series for instance. Fable 3 was ported to PC when Fable 2 wasn't. And then, they might use it to push the sells of Windows 8 as they tried to do with Halo 2 and Windows Vista.

I'd like to point out that I did some tests earlier on Halo 4. The aim assist is reduced, if anything, from Reach and the hitboxes are definitely smaller. No idea why you're complaining about that, Raven. :P

That doesn't change the fact that the Needler is pure evil. D:

Halo 4 PC has the same chance of happening as Xbox 360 TF2 getting DLC. :[

It's considered a power weapon now and it's just about as powerful as it was on Halo 3 when it wasn't. People are making the mistake of still considering it to be on the same level as other guns.

And that's why I hate it. The CE Needler was far more effective with it's longer lasting needles, slower detonation timer, EMP effect, explosion range, and multiple supercombines.

It shouldn't be treated as a power weapon in the campaign. Enemies are more unbalanced now that they supercombine with it, it's nearly impossible to dodge, not to mention it ruins the fun on Easy (sure you might not die immediately but you do lose your shield). It's also disappointing how it can kill Grunts before the required amount of needles for supercombine can be achieved. And there's not too much fun using it due to it's instant explosion and lack of explosive force (in CE, AI could be launched really high into the air and you could combine the needler explosions with rockets and grenades).

It's more interesting than in Halo 2 and 3 I admit, but it's still not on par with the CE Needler. It lacks versatility. I think the Sticky Detonator and Incineration Cannon easily supersede it. Even the concussion rifle has more uses.

Ah, you got me there. I was thinking strictly in terms of multiplayer. You're right there. :P

What house has a rocket pod, has legs, and has a long narrow barrel that probably shoots something powerful?

Sounds like you're describing the lower half of my body, actually.

It is okay. It isn't that great. It is definitely overrated.

Easter Egg Hunter. Apprentice Tricker/Glitcher (learning from Grumpy and Sliding Ghost).

Trying to get Waypoint to update Halo 3 stats in detail like here. Now no one can see that my Halo 3 Spartan no longer looks like my Reach Spartan.

Really want to be a Heroic member or have a title. :/

I wish they made Halo 3 or Reach for PC instead. It would be fun to look at what everyone could do.

That was sort of my point.

It's sort of relevant here because it's PC discussion but at the same time, it's not Halo 1 & 2.

More importantly, why did he revive an old thread which was at the bottom of the page?

If you want to see the MC die, play Legendary. If you want to see MC finish the fight, play Halo 3. If you want to see MC finish the fight by dieing, why did you waste six years when you could have done it yourself right now?

There are so few games in the Halo universe. Ideally, I'd like to see a game in the Halo universe designed specifically with PC in mind, rather then a crappy console port. Hell, Xbox can keep Halo 4 if that could become reality. You can do so much more on a PC and it'd be cool if they did that moving forward. Everything these days is made for consoles and PC just gets the scraps. Ah well, the new generation of consoles is inevitable and who knows the possibilities.

Anyway, do you think that Halo 3 would have been released for PC by now if Halo 4 were a next-gen videogame for the successor of Xbox360? Because if you think a bit about it, Halo 2 was released for PC when Halo 3 was coming out. So, Microsoft's strategy seemed to be to let PC gamers play Halo 2 on PC so that later they had to buy an Xbox360 to complete the trilogy. Therefore, maybe if Halo 4 were a next-gen title, Microsoft would have ported the previous Halo games to make us later buy an Xbox720 (or whatever its name is).

Done.

I don't think Halo 3 would have been released. The way events happened are like this: Microsoft used Halo 2 as a way of trying to boost sales for Vista and to push its GFWL strategy. However as we all know, Halo 2 Vista was poorly ported, gripped with problems and useless features to enhance gameplay with GFWL like the CD key limit. Add to that trying to charge PC gamers for a service which has always been traditionally free to them with the exception of MMO's and we have a game that PC gamers hate unlike its older brother.

As a result of this, M$ have done everything to distance themselves from H2V. They probably think PC gamers don't like Halo because of the poor reception to H2V and probably see no hope for GFWL to even bother trying with Halo 3, let alone Halo 4. It's unlikely we're going to see a Halo title on PC for a while although one can still hope.
