Subject: HALO REACH FOR PC, A SERIOUS ATTEMPT

ok so before you all attack me by saying halo reach is the worst halo and all that jazz (though if your willing to share actual jazz with me that's fine) you need to understand that halo 1 and 2 were the only halo games released on pc,

halo 1 was ported over by gearbox and they did a decent job with it with many graphics options and good mouse and keyboard controls and even going so far as to add online multiplayer, a feature not in the xbox version, combine that with skill based weapons, an awesome campaign and multiplayer on level with the original half life and you have a very good game.

then we got halo 2, a rushed awful port by an in house development teem by the name of hired gun, it featured 3 graphics options, horrible keyboard and mouse controls (those of you who've used a turret or a vehicle will know what i mean), voice chat that doesn't work and a 5 time activation limit as well as a LOWER yes LOWER FOV than the original halo 2, not to mention halo 2,s numerous problems such as added lock on, lack of health making the shield less useful, poor weapon balance, this as you can probably guess caused people to avoid it like the plague

now we have halo reach, health is back so that's good, and means people don't come off completely unscathed if there shields go down and they loose half there health and will help them to learn in the same way that counter strike does that they need to play with more tactics and try to avoid having there shields drop at all,

the pistol is no longer useless which means weapon balance,

firefight gives people something to do other than standard multiplier,

forge which allows people to easily make maps if they don't want to learn the more complex map editor that they will include if they want even a hope of this game selling well on pc.

now when compared to halo 2 reach would feel far better because it feels more like the original game that people fell in love with.

ok enough about that now onto the main point of this thread, to make this happen we can't simply have another 200 threads called please bring halo reach to pc :), we need a campaign, we need to start a petition first thing so microsoft can see NUMBERS (i've done that and added the link down bellow) the second thing is to make a very clear list of things vital to make the port good and vote on each of the proposed features until we have a list of features that is also backed up by NUMBERS, and lastly we need to offer as much help as we can to the team porting reach, for example offering advice on how a feature should work and giving explanations on why it would be best that way, as well as people willing to do modeling and texture work voluntarily, to allow higher quality models and textures that we would expect from a good PC port.

the petition has been created and can be found here:http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/microsoft-343-indu stries-port-halo-reach-to-pc

now i'm off to make videos and stuff to help get people talking about this and allowing us to be sucsessfull in our great journy of getting reach on pc

I too think it will not happen.

Microsoft will not get any added revenue from XBL licences.
Only income from game sales, which they already have on xbox.

Name's John. I'm a 21-year-old firefighter/EMT from lolhio who doubles as a die-hard Halo fan. I've been enjoying the franchise since 2001. My favorite iteration of Halo would have to be Halo 2 simply because I never got to experience the joy of a full-on Halo: CE LAN.


If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Oh yeah, and boot Zome.

That doesn't mean all the weapons are balanced by any means.

I have no idea why any PC gamer would want to buy this game. So many better options out there.

Halo 3 is obviously trash compared to Reach. Damn I even forgot about that game until you mentioned it, Reach just completely outshines it.

Guessing someone didnt have a happy new year :(
Wouldn't '12.31.2012 6:02 PM PST' (your post time) be around 2am of new years day ... thats dedication, monitoring bungie.net for misdeeds such as this rather than going out with friends for some selfish fun.

But given the OP is discussing Reach ... and on the Reach forum ... dont think you can get much On Topic that that?

If you're gonna be a negative person at least bother to link correctly.

Oh wait, you're the kid who goes on Twitter whenever someone shows how dumb you are and says "#butthurt"

LMFAO he just posted on Twitter on how you're a "sad no life"

Hilarious coming from someone who truly has no life; a person who literally plays videogames 24/7, no real life friends, and doesn't like socializing or being by people.

I find it hilarious how he censors what he posted too, in order to make him look better. He did it with my post, and he did it with Aang's post when he was "trying" to show how "butthurt" he was. (When really he was just posting nonsense with no intelligent argument like usual).

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.

So basically... Waypoint is pro-vanilla?

Posted by: Sentox6
Waypoint isn't pro-anything so much as they're just anti-intelligence.

Halo: Reach is the beginning of a new age for gaming.
It proves that developers can get away with punishing their players instead of fixing their game....and yet the fanboys will still sing praises to them.

-blam!- all of you fanboys!

Let me make this request a very simple one for you.

Though I'd like to see Halo get away from being "Exclusive" to a dying console that is hell bent on putting an iron fist around our choices on how to play a game.

I'd recommend you get on the bandwagon of bringing the best of what PC's have to offer to the console instead.

SERVER BROWSERS!

If console games adopted that instead of matchmaking.
FPS's on consoles would surpass the last little bit of superiority that PC's have over it.
(-blam!- your Mouse+keyboard arguments, enjoy your carpel tunnel syndrome dumbasses)

You just have to convince the mass of dumb -blam!- nerds, that having choices, and building for custom gaming first....is more important than a -blam!- rank.
