Well he would have needed a modified console to do that. And that qualifies for a ban, it's just their policy.

Gamecheat on the other hand did all his halo 5/ HW2 hacking on PC. So completely unrelated to his Xbox and MS account

When they start pre-emptively banning people on Xbox for hacking on OTHER systems, it's kinda weird

That's a bit different
Del Rio may have been in the right in the sense that Cortana was unstable and therefore dangerous, but he also refused to accept that the Didact was a threat and so he was clearly just affirming his bias
With Hood its more like either him or Miranda could have been right, but it just so happens he was wrong, but in hindsight its obvious that Miranda had the right idea anyway because had Hood been correct and the Gravemind had attacked Earth, the Humans wouldn't have had time to flee to the Ark

I personally like the fact that Arbiter is the overall hero of Halo 2, because in all honesty I don't even get why Chief is all that
He's a great character, don't get me wrong, but having him be the hero all the time would just be nonsense, and at the end of the day Halo 2 was reall the Arbiter's story, so it could all come together in Halo 3

@CodeBuns
He was a hero for one freaking game before Halo 2, Master Chief fit the bill of a badass power fantasy character. Fans fell in love with him in Halo 1 and the E3 2003 trailer just made everyone want to play him even more. You barely play the Chief fully much in the series while you played him 5 times in reality you only played him fully in 3 games. It doesn't help the fact that Bungie and 343 always make the worst level design when they make the level for the new character just to fit their gimmick, Arbiter's stealth, Locke's man hunting skills. I'm fine and dandy with playing other characters especially when it's in a spin off, but I do not appreciate it when a new character hijack Chief's story from him (Arbiter) or steal his storyline completely (Locke).

People were only really angry because of the cliffhanger, and even that is better to the alternative (having Miranda turn out to be the villain and drop you down a hole with a bomb strapped to your back)
As far as the Arbiter is concerned, we can all agree in hinsight that his inclusion was a stroke of genius that simply wasn't appreciated at the time

The Arbiter levels were good.
No they weren't, they were claustrophobic, linear, had the worst enemies in the game, bland, Bungie tried to design them for stealth but failed, Arbiter has lower sheids and health than Chief, he also does less damage to enemies than Chief, his levels at times are too dark, has bad boss, made poor use of the weapon and vehicle sandbox, and would lock players in rooms to kill lots of enemies, this was a issue in Halo 1 but due to enemy variety from different factions and the weapon sandbox along with the fact that the game didn't lock you in an area for very long.

just because regret is the best boss doesn't mean the others are bad

he has the best vehicle level in the game and constant access to the carbine, so no
would lock players in rooms to kill lots of enemies
I can only think of one time it does this, the Oracle elevator, but it happens to Chief too ala Gravemind opening

If you don't personally like the Arbiter levels then fine, but honestly theres no point really trying to argue that his levels were somehow worse than Chiefs when realistically every level of Halo 2 is good in its own right

i like the halo 2 campaign because theres lots of variety in the levels and the enemies, Halo 1 didn't really have that
and halo 3 kinda backtracked a bit, it removed loads of the enemies from halo 2 (enforcer, honor guard, heretics etc) and didn't really add anything new it just reused stuff from halo 2 with the exception of the redesigned brutes and the flood pureforms
overall i'd have to say halo 2 is actually my favourite campaign, but again i like all the halos so it is hard choosing between them

i don't know what you're talking about here
if you're saying silent cartographer gives you three ways to go, thats wrong, you either go one way and have to go back, or go another way and keep moving forward
but then again, assault on the control room definitely isn't free roam, but surely you can't be implying that silent cartographer is free roam? and even if you were, that would still be wrong, since truth and reconciliation doesn't have three ways to go either
truly you baffle me

Not really, the Halo series worst missions are the claustrophobic ones
like all of Halo 1
What?
Heretics are literally Covenant reskinned
That's the problem, we could have fought Humans but instead we just fight reskinned Covies
Flood and Brutes are in MC levels too
Flood are in one Chief mission and Brutes are in missions where they either fight Elite forces or Flood forces so it gives enemy variety
literally what
Go get shot up in Outskirts by Grunts with Needlers and do the same on The Arbiter and see who dies the fastest
increase the brightness, or turn off your light
Why should I do this, if you're not going to give the character a flashlight then make his levels bright enough to see
just because regret is the best boss doesn't mean the others are bad
But the others are bad, the Heretic Leader is just an Elite Ranger with Holograms and Tartarus is just a berserking Brute with a hammer
he has the best vehicle level in the game and constant access to the carbine, so no
The best vehicle levels in the game were Metropolis and Delta Halo
I can only think of one time it does this, the Oracle elevator, but it happens to Chief too ala Gravemind opening
Oracle elevator and lab, Quarantine Zone gondola

Dude I know you like Arby's missions and all but face facts they were worse than Chief's missions and Arby's best mission "Uprising" is still not as good as Chief's missions.

@CodeBuns
There are no free roam missions in the core games, its a linear first person shooter
some missions are more open than others but the true definition of free roam is having a large open space with different methods of achieving an objective, and whilst Halo does have levels were the spaces are open, often there is still only one single objective. Even silent cartographer, the closest to free roam in the series, just has the choice of either going to the objective and backtracking, or going back first and not having to backtrack. Either way, you end up in the same place.
Halo 5 actually has some elements of free roam in that there are often multiple ways of completing the same objective in missions, but even that is debatable.
The obvious huge exception is Mombasa Streets, the only true free roam mission, but even that has highly linear elements

I think the UNSC understands that the Arbiter did what he did under false pretence and repented for his crimes
even Buck expresses concern for the fact that the Elites in Halo 3 ODST were betrayed by the Brutes, so its obvious he doesn't just blindly hate the Covenant the way most 2D 343 characters are written

CEA has it's ups and downs. It's always easier to notice the bad stuff and that's why people always point to 343GS, beginning of Truth and Reconciliation and all the dark areas while ignoring the rest of the levels which look nice for the most part (TSC, inside covie/human ships, AotCR).

If you think that right looks better than left that's fine, i completely disagree with you and i think you're wrong, but at the end of the day everyone's allowed to have their own opinion.

That's Bungie's fault, not 343i's. What is 343i's fault is not porting the MCC to PC. They've pretty much swept it under the carpet, they aren't really bothering to support it outside of keeping the servers running.

Serina went rampant
Well that's new, and scary... these organisms are... interesting.
Released a few crew members from cryo and let the flood infect them, creating an infestation, which quickly grew out of control
Subroutine of Serina lifted Red Team from stasis to stop the outbreak
Red Team cleanses the outbreak (dunno how), then makes their way to the bridge, smashes Serina's holotank, retrieves her chip, then crushes it
They go back to stasis
Silence falls upon the *Spirit of Fire* once more, now with somewhere about a quarter of her crew dead, including a bunch of named characters like Chief Medical Officer Sandmoore and Nurse Hershey, and the ship's cat too...

Anyway, it would take a long-ass time to even reach the next star system (space is huuuuuge), probably depleting all onboard supplies by the halfway point, so the decision was made to put the majority into stasis and leave a basic skeleton crew active, to be rotated every now and then.

...
You know, that would actually be an interesting game - take command of the Spirit of Fire on her way home, exploring new worlds and uncharted systems on the way back to UNSC space (while probably setting up bases/outposts on habitable worlds in case UEG/UNSC explorers ever come back that way).

That's certainly true, but even then Halo 3's skulls were much easier to find than Halo 2's
In fact in Halo 3 you don't even have to play on Legendary to get the Skulls, and some of them are hiding in literal plain sight (such as Catch on The Storm which you can see from a mile away)
Halo 2 is the only game to have Easter Eggs within Easter Eggs with the Skulls:
Smoking Pipe next to the Thunderstorm Skull
'Look' 'Four' 'Skulls' with the Blind Skull
Ultra Elite boss wave with IWHBYD
Dancing Grunts with GBP
Spasming Flood with Famine
Dancing Elites with Assassins/Envy Skulls

Interestingly enough, Assassins was originally supposed to be in Halo 3
One of the two Blind skulls was originally Assassins, either the one on Sierra 117 or (more likely) the one on Cortana
There actually still exists within the game a script to make the Assassins effect occur, and unlike Halo 2 it affects allies as well as enemies

Technically CEA brought them back, which is why I was surprised to see them not in 4.

But yes, I will give 5 it's credit for bringing them back, and I'm glad they did.
I'm a little disappointed it's just the standard Skulls though. You would think after MCC where they made a bunch of Skulls up, they would have done the same with 5.

It's very interesting how Halo 2 uses samey-color patterns to save loading space when a lot is on screen.

This gondola is one of the worst offenders. Normally you don't see just how monotonously bland it looks, like something straight off the development floor. It just kind of sticks out as this big bland grey thing.

You can notice this also in the lake levels, where if you travel around the lake to an older area, everything is declared and uniformly colored, but the gondola never got a proper upgrade when you're actually using it like those areas did.

From what people have been saying about Halo 2 on this thread the past few days it seems people like to skip firefights an awful lot since someone was complaining before about Halo 2 having too many sections where you actually have to fight enemies
@MPmaster
I've always liked the colour palette of Halo 2, the rusty dullness of Installation 05's damaged facilities fits the tone of the Flood levels
Also I won't lie but I'm pretty sure the dull monotonous colour palette thing isn't new to Halo 2, most Forerunner structures in Halo 1 were the same shade of flat gray and I might even go so far as to say the Covenant architecture in Halo 1 was a bit bland, in 2 it had much more character
Then again, thats just my opinion

Oh I like the rustyness in CE and 2 a lot. 2 does a great job with it. I don't like how starting with 3 and onward all forerunner stuff was super bright and apparently immune to decay and rust. You show up on Requiem in 4 and everything is just pristine.

I'm more referring to the samey-ness that annoys me. Obviously CE is a huge offender but 2 has its fair share. I don't mind the rust, but one pallet for the whole object? I'd like a bit more detail.

On the subject of 3, I'll agree with you on the campaign front, but plenty of the multiplayer maps have forerunner structures showing off age.

Oddly enough, there are some places in Halo 3 where there is some kind of wear on the structures but for some reason Bungie seem to have used a kind of water damage effect that makes it look like the Brutes just pissed everywhere on the Ark

after comparing the different types of forerunner structures I've reached a disturbing conclusion
I was always of the opinion that Halo 4 was the game that ruined the Forerunner's distinctive monolithical style of architecture, but from the look of these comparison, it actually seems more like...
did... did Halo 3 ruin the Forerunners?

@Techpill
I've always thought this.
It's something to do with the fact that in Halo 1 and 2 all Forerunner architecture was always the same colour all round, with only a few minor differences
In Halo 3 for some reason they decided to give all the Forerunner architecture a really ugly secondary yellowy-brown colour that ruined the starkness of its design.

Halo 3 also ruined the characters are Sergeant Johnson and Miranda Keyes, two of my favorites, and not having Arbiter as a playable character for even one level was just a waste

Sharpcharm

@BlogWobbles
Miranda Keyes went from a straightforward and reasonably competent commander in Halo 2 who would occasionally make rash decisions but would only put her own life at risk for the greater good
In Halo 3 she became an overblown, over-the-top narmy bitch who gave totally incompentant military commands (To Wharrrr) and got herself killed because of a truly Carter-esque misuse of a Pelican

Sergeant Johnson in Halo CE and 2 was a quickthinking badass who was bested by the Arbiter only to reconcile with him and make amends, whereas in Halo 3 he serves mostly as just a guy to get captured over and over and over again and dies in the most pathetic way possible

Pretty fucking much. He believes he's still in control, but ever since Cortana got into the Domain, his capabilities have been significantly reduced... and, AFAIK, suffered another mass reduction after Meridian, where the Warden-supervised Promethean construct forces slaughtered the Liang-Dortmund security personnel and about 90% of the colonists, even when they tried to evacuate.
In The Breaking, that was essentially the last gasp of the Warden's autonomy under Cortana. After that, the Warden is basically naught more than Cortana's attack dog.

She is essentially a forerunner AI sculpted with the personality/copy of a human brain, so yes.

There's a big forerunner installation under Reach that helped make this possible. It's also the reason the covenant came to Reach in the first olace, hence their unprepared numbers.

This is similar to when they first came to Earth. They knew from forerunner writings the portal to the ark was there, but didn't know it was a human stronghold, let alone their home planet.

Literally not an argument. I've been with the franchise from the start and who are you to act like you have more passion for the franchise because you like 2 games I don't. The same cringey argument you always see when games get shit sequels or bands put out bad records.

I don't hate 343, they just haven't put out a very good game thus far and generally speaking people talk about the games as a whole. If people talk specifics they would get some praise for things like the browser and forge but they've had 2 poor campaigns which is the beef of the game for a lot of people and the main thing we wait years for. You sound upset because you must get grief for liking 4 or 5 and you're deflecting.

For the record, I've never liked ODST either. I thought it was incredibly dull and went no where, it also didn't justify the price. I find it difficult to go back to CE because it feels incredibly sluggish and clunky, despite having so many good memories as a kid. The same goes for smash and ocarina of time.

I know this was supposed to keep consistency with the original game, but could they possibly have added in a few of the HFB ships to pad out the Fifth Fleet, or maybe add a few (re:20 or so) Halberd destroyers to the same?

How did the flood break quarantine on delta Halo.

At first I thought some spores had escaped a long long time ago and the monitor of that installation had the sentinals build abwall around the containment area and theyve been there since.

But Truth's diologue suggests the covenant let them out again just like on the first Halo.

Bungie employees themselves talked about how the design for the Gravemind was a last-minute snap decision that they all hated, and that it was originally supposed to look like a 'seething mass of corpses', but the descision to change the design was done so it had a visible mouth for the characters to look at

@TreeEater
They originally broke out thanks to lax security put in place by the monitor, Penitent Tangent (who was manlfunctioning, according to Guilty Spark, even before he was captured by the Gravemind)
The Sentinels, without a sophisticated command directory, chose to isolate and contain the Flood with a Sentinel Wall/Shield Barrier and reduce the temperature of the area of containment to near-freezing to reduce the Flood's effectiveness.
Skip ahead a few millenia, and the Arbiter deactivates the shield during the Sacred Icon mission, allowing the Flood to finally escape the Library on Installation 05 and spread to the rest of the ring, but by then they had a Gravemind controlling them so they could probably have figured out a way of getting out eventually anyway

@GoogleCat
So the area where the flood are kept for studying is the same general area where the library is?

That makes no sense to me.
Ideally you would have them as far away as possible so that if there was an outbreak, activation protocal would want a reclaimer to have as easy a path to the index as possible.

@DeathDog
i'm not sure on the details but I think the original breakout was only small, and the Flood maybe travelled to and then consolidated their forces around the Installation 05 library because they knew the Sentinels would want to activate the ring

That would make sense, if they had a gravemind to direct them. They get ok ne eventually, but hes under the library.

@RavySnake
"Their parasitic nature belies the Flood's intelligence"
I always got the impression that Flood combat forms were meant to retain a fair amount of intelligence, either from their host or even more advanced
After all, they can still use weapons and Guilty Spark even comments that the Flood are almost finishing repairing the Pillar of Autumn, all without a Gravemind's influence

RumChicken

@lostmypassword
They had a proto-gravemind formed at that point, which gave them some degree of instruction.

But youre probably right that all forms retain some intellegence if inly in a dormant state because once they form a full fravemind it has all the memories of the ancient graveminds from before, and its not like it pulls those memories out of thin air.

Well, a lot of them know how to use guns from the host that they took over, so I guess that shows that they have some form of intelligence.
