    They need to fix Cloaking.
    Take out the Radar Jammer..at least for your own radar..
    ..and you should stay completely invisible regardless of motion, especially since there's a recharge/time limit on it.

    MW2 has been getting pretty old as of late to me. This game is going to kick ass. Out of all video game series, I think Halo is by far my favorite.

    I'm playing the beta now, and I'm still pretty on the fence about the game. Granted this is pre-ODST beta, so it's only opened with two maps. It's still missing vehicles.

    Having said that, the combat is frustrating. Two melees will effectively kill anyone, but gunning them down and then melee'ing actually doesn't work. In fact typically that will kill you because then THEY melee you and kill you . . . how my melee doesn't kill them is beyond me.
    Grenades are tightly packed with MW2 throwing knives and kill everything like a . . . expletive.
    You move SO, FREAKIN', SLOW. Especially when you're holding a flag . . . The "sword base" level is very one sided when it's a flag game as well. Stockpile on sword base is pretty heavily biased against the red team, since their base is right at the first floor, and incredibly simple to just toss flags down to.

    Also, the sword is pretty weak now. It too takes two hits to kill someone with. Well, actually it can be BLOCKED by a melee attack. I don't know, it just seems as though it should be a prized weapon, that cuts like butter, buuut usually it's passed up for ranged weapons.

    Sprinting shouldn't be an armor ability either. Otherwise you have to choose between being sluggish, or being being quick, for a short period of time. It just comes off really useless. Especially since you can't RUN with the flag...

    well, the shotgun looks freakin amazing! But, med-packs shouldnt be in reach. It annoying to try and find a med-pack in ODST, so Bungie, take out the med-packs! :)

    I wish more developers did Beta's so they could fix their games. I'm talking about Epic and Gears 2 here. I tell you, i'm not that big of a Halo fan, but Bungie treats their fanbase right and always takes care of them. Great developers.

    Check out 1:02. The person that's navigating through the main menu stops on a blank section of the menu. Could this be Firefight? Here's to wishful thinking.

    This game looks great I can't wait for the final! Even though the developer is taking full advantage of the xbox 360's hardware the videos that I have seen are impressive, but I have seen better grpahics on a PC. What I have seen of the game has only been on standard resoluton video on my PC. I would love to see this masterpiece on my big screen in full HD. I know that the 360 hardware is not capable of perofrming grapgics that a hight end PC or the PS3 can perform. But I believe that when "all" of deveolpers learn the full capabilities and are able to fully utilize the hardware of the PS3, Microft will most likley come out with thier new console a year later. which will most likeley be at least 5 times the power of the the PS3, but will be five times eassier to program and develope games for the new system. I believe one of the resons why it has taken this long for even Sony to finally fully utilize it's own hardware is becuase the PS3 so damn hard to program for compared to the 360. Reach May be the last Halo game being developed for the xbox 360. But I believe that another Halo game will be released in 2013 for the xbox 720.

    Well PS3 owners are still looking forward to alot, personally Gran Turismo 5 (We will see how good Forza 3 is when compared to Gran Turismo 5). Especially since the PS3 is actually a next gen console. Don't get me wrong, I like my 360 but it seems to be getting a little outdated to me, personally I believe developers are just now realizing how to use the PS3's hardware. and yes I am looking forward to reach it looks like it will be alot better than the previous games.
