ComicBookGuy: kroonermanblack: ProfessorOhki: Millennium: farkingismybusiness: [i.imgur.com image 850x637]Best commentary on Halo and its ilk EVAR.But then suddenly, things get weird[i.imgur.com image 400x600]I'm down.If she's legal, and I can't tell. If not I will not have a seat!Anyone actually buy this? What's the story? I thought MC died at the end of Halo 3, and that's why they were doing all the other random 'still a green space marine but not MC' characters.So, I guess you are like Homer Simpson loudly saying Darth Vader is Luke's father in TESB while walking past a line of people who haven't seen it.Good thing I don't care, or your stupidity would piss me off more,
kroonermanblack: I thought MC died at the end of Halo 3,
omeganuepsilon: Accuracy via mouse? Hello easy mode, in a sense, everyone I know can point and click easily.Also, the argument is a non starter, presumably on a PC, everyone has a mouse, and on a console everyone has a controller. It's called a level playing field. Comparing the control schemes is like saying the football is a better thing than the drag racing tires. It's when people use improper controllers on PC, or a mouse on a console that any difference is relevant. guess who plays on a console with a mouse? Someone who cried when their training wheels got removed from their bicycle.Even at that, the analog stick has the mouse beat in one distinct way: You never have to hit the edge of a mouse pad/surface, lift or otherwise reposition. Continuous movement in any of the 4 traditional dimensions.(same reason flight sims still function best on a stick).
Anastacya: I am not an Xbox gal; prefer PS3. Right now I am flirting with WoW (just can't get back into it) and Zero Escape on my 3DS. I suck at console shooters. Now Im feeling really nostalgic and I think Ill break out some ds_dust.
Meethos: You know what's great? Owning a great gaming rig, a 360, and a PS3. Not having to be one of you stupid shiat faced morons who can't understand why people like having fun.
umad: Meethos: You know what's great? Owning a great gaming rig, a 360, and a PS3. Not having to be one of you stupid shiat faced morons who can't understand why people like having fun.Agreed. We have our own problems though, like regretting pissing away a bunch of money for a Wii. At least I'm not stuck using it as my only gaming machine.

kab: If you think FPS games have any business being on consoles, then you shouldn't be voting in the first place.So, win-win.
ferretman: So far undecided about HALO4. Don't care for the sound of the Warthog....seems too high pitched. Also I find the story kinda of meh....so far. Lastly the music seems off to me....though I've only completed 2 missions so far.
ProfessorOhki: People hit the edge of the pad in an FPS? What are you using, a sensitivity of 1? Nah, the reason mouse > stick for console is that there's a wider range of control.
omeganuepsilon: ProfessorOhki: People hit the edge of the pad in an FPS? What are you using, a sensitivity of 1? Nah, the reason mouse > stick for console is that there's a wider range of control.I like how you say "people" then shift it to "you".To continually turn right, for example, everyone will hit the edge of the mousepad eventually, unless you pick it up and re-position it.
omeganuepsilon: If only real guns were as easy as point and click
omeganuepsilon: It's not a crime to have poor taste and be easily entertained
ProfessorOhki: Sure you can turn that up in some games, but you have to sacrifice control to do it.
ProfessorOhki: When acquiring a target with a real gun, is your thought process "I am going to point my gun at that guy" or is it "I'm going to rotate until that guy is directly in my line of fire." With the exception of stuff like Beachhead, I'm pretty sure that a mouse more accurately matches the concept.
omeganuepsilon: Making it about me again? Or pretending everyone has your flaws? Some people lose nothing from playing on a high sensitivity. Regardless to popular belief, some people are capable of not only slamming the stick to each limit and incapable of nothing else. Plenty of people can operate with considerable precision when on very high stick sensitivities and still able to turn 180 on a dime.
omeganuepsilon: But whatever, pretend like you've got some experience outside of your basement, PC Master Race boy. Be "pretty sure" all you want, doesn't mean jack crap to people who know from actual experience.
ProfessorOhki: Mouse works best for FPS; get over it.
ProfessorOhki: Nope, has nothing to do with the player.
omeganuepsilon: Yeah, performance in FPS games has nothing to do with the player. What the fark ever.10/10 on trolling if that's what you're doing, but you know, Poe's Law...
omeganuepsilon: Also, as I mentioned, on a console, with everyone using a controller and the playing field being equal(aside from the odd 3rd party cheater), talking about PC's or the use of a mouse is utterly irrelevant.
lordargent: At the end of the day, none of this matters, games are games (and it's a damned awesome time to be a gamer), grow up, play what you like, and stop whining like a little brat.
