    Yeah?

    I'm sorry, did you play Halo 4? You seem to be telling us the customizable classes are just like Call of Duty, but I just provided several examples of the Class System being used in Reach, and it not being similar to Call of Duty.

    Also who gives a shit if it's like Call of Duty? I think Call of Duty is fun, and even if you don't, do you really think it's class system is going to kill a Halo game, or make it less fun? If you're that hateful of Call of Duty, or that liable to think that one similarity to Call of Duty is going to ruin Halo, I question how you get through life without being unhappy all the time. If one trait from something you dislike is in something you do like, and that's enough to ruin it for you, you'll probably be a very unhappy person.
    I was just pointing out the similarities and you've proved me right.

    Saying they're not similar is being ignorant to the changes of Halo. The main change will be less people getting upset over whether or not they want the "pro" variant of a gametype. It is similar to Call of Duty, but we'll still be playing Halo.

    how do you figure

    Reach introduced classes, and they were customizable. You're claiming Halo 4 is introducing that, when they are, in fact, not. They're simply improving on it.

    So by your logic, if anything was similar to Call of Duty, it was Reach.

    An improvement doesn't make it different. It's still evolved into something similar to Call of Duty, even if it is also similar to Halo: Reach.

    Took you long enough to figure that out, but with Reach they atleast tried something different.

    I agree Delta that is pretty dumb that Reach tried something different.

    I did not play (yet), but I sat in a couple play testing sessions at my old job a couple days ago. The load out system is very similar to Reach. But seriously who the fuck cares if it's like Reach, or COD? It's a fucking load out system!

    I don't think there is an issue, but rather Grim Joker is refusing to accept a similarity.

    Reach classes were not customized for the individual player though, only the host creating the custom game can customize the load outs.

    Halo 4 the player customizes their load outs, it isn't preset like in Reach.

    just because there's a similarity doesn't mean there' blatant copying involved. even then, that's not an element that makes cod shit.

    i think halo 4 is gonna show everyone "here's how it's done the right way you fucks".

    Plus, I'm pretty sure there were games before COD that had customized classes/load outs. I can't think of any, but I'm sure they exist.

    Battlefield had classes before Call of Duty and I think it also had loud outs before as well.

    Also the fact that certain playlists won't allow custom loadouts, I imagine games such as Infection would apply to this, or any of the Action Sack favorites.

    Also, it's Halo as long as Grifball is here, which has been confirmed

    I like how you ignored the parts where I pointed out that neither of us have played, and it doesn't strike me so far as being similar to CoD, but if it is, who cares.

    A+ for reading skills there champ.

    whether or not it does doesn't matter. i see it as the devs do - halo has to evolve if it wants to compete. they've done a great job so far from what i've seen, even going back to a pace reminiscent of halo 3.

    D- on critical thinking skills. You don't need to play a game to realize it has a feature similar to another game's feature.

    You should probably wait until it's released to say "THIS FEATURE IS DEFINITELY THE SAME AS THIS FEATURE FROM ANOTHER GAME"

    How do I lack critical thinking skills by not making assumptions based on some low-quality screenshots from the beta of a game? I'm fucking using my brain to say "We don't know everything yet." because we don't.

    I think you should "fucking use your brain" to find a post where I don't use the word "similar" to describe the two games with the loadout feature.

    I don't recall debating it with you for the last few pages.

    As I recall you randomly picked me out in a post due to a conversation I was having with a completely different poster.

    In fact as I recall the original thing I took issue with was the poster who said that Halo was turning into Call of Duty and was shamelessly ripping it off, and then people starting accusing me of denying any sort of similarity.

    All I said was that it doesn't strike me as all that similar. It's a difference in opinion, and you're being incredibly abrasive and downright childish about it.

    If you don't recall debating with me for the last few pages, why try to be slick at my expense? We're on an internet forum, home to many discussions. I've joined in the discussion, albeit not on your side, but I'm here. While you may not have started off denying a similarity, it's definitely where you ended.

    I'm guessing the Venator helmet is a homage to Isaac Clarke's Engineering RIG in Dead Space?

    Also, I'm liking the look of the Chief's armour a bit more now, but I still can't help but think the shape of the visor makes him look almost... sad.

    I'll probably be using the forest camo on the "CIO" armour.

    Unless I find a nicer armour when I get the game of course, but so far the CIO design is my favourite of those that have been revealed.

    If you guys dont want arguements dont start shit by saying how Halo 4 is like COD.

    You're entitled to an opinion but if all that opinion is going to do is make everybody fight like children then dont bring it here.
