: 343 isn't all that big on fixing glitches, even if they're fixable.
: Reach ring a bell?

Not really, the only glitch I can think of that came up under their control was the one where health doesn't fully regenerate (or doesn't regenerate at all? that doesn't seem quite right) when using a health pack, which was exposed by their understandable decision to let melee attacks extend through shields into health without completely taking down shields first ("melee bleed-through"). I don't remember what they said about that, and without looking at the code I don't know how fixable it was.

: I'm wondering if they're launching H2 with the most up to
: date TU, give or take some fixes, or if they're going to release the full
: busted product that I really have no desire to touch.

Well they've been saying it'll have all or almost all of the quirks, glitches, bugs, and exploits, and I realized "all" and "almost all" are different, but they've said both things. They said in an interview on Twitch just now some might not work like before because of how things are rendered, and that they wanted to get a snapshot of how Halo was during the life of each game, so it's anyone's guess how precisely everything will work.

: Also, I still can't shake the feeling that the $60 is a rip off considering
: what they expected people to pay for H1A, and I can't shake the feeling
: that it's a rip off because, come December, they may pull an H4 and drop
: that price within a month from launch for the holidays, screwing the
: initial purchasers after a 30 day period to get a price adjustment. I have
: an extreme distrust of Microsoft and 343 after the way these past things
: have been handled, and definitely of Microsoft considering everything with
: the Xbox One when it launched, the NSA, etc.

Avateur, I like you, I respect you, but you're talking crazy talk. A $60 price for four full games isn't a rip off. As for the price changing, well, that's why don't buy something when it first comes out. I don't like it but it's business, it's the games business and it's business in general.
