Re: Turning the Ship Around - "Cooperation"

In Response To: Turning the Ship Around - "Cooperation" (FyreWulff)

: Double EXP weekends in Halo 3 were playlists made in response (mostly) to
: community requests. Reach didn't have double EXP weekends, but it did have
: Super Jackpots. What did Halo 4 have for the hardcore fans? Double EXP..
: as long as you bought some Mountain Dew. And this feature has mostly just
: been left to gather dust after the promotion ended, being used only once
: so far outside of the Dew promotion.

Well, you could also buy Doritos, but yeah, the whole thing sucks.

: The lack of campaign and spartan ops films means "water cooler"
: talk simply couldn't happen - once you played a mission or Spartan Ops,
: the experience was forever lost unless you had hundreds of dollars in
: capture hardware.

You can get stuff to capture video for less than $20 on Amazon and it should take maybe a few minutes to set up-- it won't give you spectacular quality, but the vast majority of stuff like this is going on YouTube, where most things aren't available or aren't watched at anything above what any TV from the last 30 years can show.

: I'm aware Halo is a product sold to make money. But it feels that at some
: point, Microsoft and 343 shifted to a harsh "do it our way, or don't
: do it". They became heavily top down in how content makes it into
: Halo. The organic connection between the hardcore base and the company is
: stretched thin. It comes across as the marketing team making more
: decisions to build 343's brand than 343 building a legacy with it's fans.
: While you sign the Spielbergs and Virgin Entertainments and Mountan Dews
: contracts, don't forget your Firestreams, your Kornmans, and your
: MigChavezeseseses. They may not be responsible for moving the same units
: the big names do, but they do afford your universe a more human quality.

Well, they did give Wu an award, but they didn't do anything else like that that I'm aware of, except for inviting people to test their gameplay tweaks.
