I never thought I'd say this...

In Response To: Then you'll love this one (Avateur)

: As respectfully as possible, I must disagree. To an extent. 343 absolutely
: was doing a lot of work that was really paying off. It was doing so well
: that I was enjoying myself quite frequently. Sure, the CSR thing was far
: too easy and nothing like they said it would be (no surprise), but at
: least their million patches and TUs were starting to pay off. And then
: they "weapon tuned" the game. So yeah. All of those strides and
: leaps forward definitely got set back. So I must disagree. H4 was a lot
: better and a lot more fun to play, but right when it looked like they
: found the right style, they went and blew it with alleged
: "tuning" and nonsense.

But it looks like Avateur knows what he's talking about... at all... Like, he even punctuated his sentences and everything.

What? Oh yeah, the point. Yes. I found Halo 4 very fun in the beginning, and all of the updates were making it better and better (even though they nerfed the Boltshot)... Until the idiotic weapon tuning and speed increase.

The whole game just feels like a mess now. As I said last night (to thems that were privy), it wouldn't be so atrocious if the game ran at 60fps. But it doesn't. It's not an enjoyable experience, and much less when an enemy team gets a SAW or two. It went from power weapon to game breaker.

Big Team is still somewhat fun, though it plays like Heavies by default (not necesarilly a complaint, but it's what you're getting into), and the skirmish mode being added might help it more.

Objective gametypes though? forget about it. It's just a convoluted mess.

And then I went into Action Sack. Mini slayer is not fun at all. It's borderline-Bouncehouse levels of stupid and not-fun-for-anyone-over-12...

Eh. At least I've warmed up to Reach's 80% Bloom. Halo 4 has actually made Reach MORE fun than it was for some people, so congrats, 343... I guess...
