Feedback -- Halo: Reach, Post-Tokyo Game Show Edition
On this week's Feedback, Kevin Kelly, Abbie Heppe, J.P. Shub, and Nikole Zivalich discuss TGS 2010, Halo: Reach, and it's always good to have a pheromone-filled water gun.

    The show needs more charismatic people. Adam, Patrick, Andrew, Abbie and Matt were/are great at keeping the conversation interesting and funny. This JB guy is alright, if a little simple, Kevin is kind of bland (and old) and Nicole was silent half the podcast. If need be, you should pull guests from the industry (Like you've done a few times before). The group chemistry just isn't there right now.

    Nicole needs to be lynched. That Spoiler Alert gave me about half a second to pause the video, and her point that everyone should have beat it by now is ridiculous. I'm in university right now and it takes time to save up the money to by a full priced game; just because you get your games sent to you for free doesn't mean the same applies to everyone else.

    I think theres actually a higher chance that in the next years the west shift to a more handheld focus like whats been going on in japan for the past fue years. We all got into HD.. japan did not.. they got into Portable SD

    but one day Portable will be 3DHD so maybe the west will go portable as well. The real weaknest in the western gaming scene atm is community ... we all play isolated online trash talking.. not in person in a fun team work vibe any more... Monster Hunter players team up as pals and hang out in parks and stuff in japan playing together coop.. i think once we get sick of the shooter online community we may want to switch to some thing like this.

    i think Portal and L4D are just the start. COOP Monster Hunter style boss battles in HL3 calling it here first. (with Diablo style loot)

    Also, I sincerely hope Nicole is never on Feedback again. She hasn't contributed anything to the show, other then a possibly game-ruining spoiler. She may have a pretty face, but her opinions are either fanboy-ish or bland. Please, ensure she's never on the show again.

    Feedback has been steadily declining in entertainment value ever since Patrick Klepek left. I had to say it.

    i agree with them on the point of people quiting in reach.... but whats also been ruining the game is this new thing of people have a tantrum on reach. i dont mean they are screaming when i kill them or some thing... its this new thing of harrasing players who are holding power weapons or driving a tank. for instance in about 1/3rd or 1/4th of the games ive been in where i picked up the sniper rifle in BTB, i have one guy on my team who keeps shooting me and keeps standing in my way. and these guys never try to finish me off. they are trying to make me kill them so they can boot me and pick up my power weapon. it has happend to me while i am holding the laser, sniper rifle, once the shotgun, grenade launcher, and 3 times in the scorpion tank. its really gettin anoying. the first time it happend to me was when i took the scorpion tank the second day it was out and some guy on my team jumped on my tank and started shooting me while i was in the drivers seat. i was so preocupied with this noob i didnt see the other teams scorpion come over the hill in paradice and then i obviously died. thats just one example... literally about 15 min ago i was in a BTB in boneyard. it was elite slayer. well i got the last ghost on our side of the map. so what happend? some guy on my team shoot me with a charged plasma pistol 4 times... so i couldnt move or about 15seconds... then of course the wraith shot at me and killed us both. i think bungie needs to create a "vote to boot" system in the game. cuz this new thing of people having tantrums when they dont get what they want in halo is getting old. i mean i think i ran into maybe 6 or 7 people like that in all of halo 3. but ive ran into that in reach atleast 15 times now. and its only been out for a week and a half. so if you are reading this and you have tantrums on reach cuz you didnt get the power weapon... STOP BEING A NOOB!!! still a great game, i love reach... but man it has ALOT more n00bs in it now than halo 3 did. its sad that good gamers are a dying bread. im not trying to boast but at least i dont team kill when some guy on my team picks up the sniper rifle.

    I agree on the point of the endless amount of quitters in team slayer, the 15 minute suspension doesn't seem to be working to well. Here's an idea: Instead of getting EXP getting taken away, have a fraction of the exp gained in your next match cut in half or something. The campaign does indeed lack not only the sense of humor from halo 3, but also like Kevin said in his review, the game rushes by all the emotional moments in the story.
    Only other complaint about multi player is the infection bug in which if a zombie and survivor kill each other at the same time, the survivor gets a betrayal, and loses a point :(
    Besides that, I found this game very enjoyable! ^_^

    I'm really amazed so many Japanese companies are trying to mimic western-style games. Honestly, in a period when sequels, ripoffs, remakes, reboots, and film/book/comic adaptations make up such a large portion of the content we get in western gaming, the last thing we need is to have our variety cut even further from eastern developers trying to give us even more of what we already have too much of.

    NOO!! SWAT is terrible! Don't vote SWAT! If I wanted to die in one shot I would play MW2! When I play halo I want to work for my kills! I think this post needs more exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    However I LOVE the scarlet letter idea. At the very least when you go to quit out it should have the question "are you sure you want to quit?" and the options are "No, I will finish the game with honor" or "Yes I'm a coward, punish me" Like they had in Halo 3. I think the game calling me a coward kept me from quitting on many occasions!
    Didn't Jun die? On the last mission (lone wolf I believe its called) Jun's body is lying there next to you on the platform. But I love the dlc for single player idea and I don't think Halo has ever gone in that direction and in the past I haven't really cared because I've never been to ecstatic about the story or characters, but that is different in reach. Also I want to see my completely awesome and customized spartan in all new cutscenes! I look sweet...
    For dlc I want better matchmaking version of firefight. It seems like a really dumbed down version in matchmaking. Plus its usually laggy.
    Also the daily and weekly challenges are genius. They have made me unhealthily obsessed with reach. I can't do anything with my day until I know I have those damn challenges under my belt! A blessing and a curse...

    should microsoft enable developers to run and manage their own servers on xbl? obviously microsoft would be getting paid for the developers to buy the servers, but by doing this it would enable developers to make free DLC content as well as mods and expansions to their games without gamers needing to have a gold membership to xbl. their maybe developers that want gamers to pay for their servers but it could be a one time payment for a lifetime subscription. this system would also encourage/enable developers to create an MMO ( like Star Wars the Old Republic O.O ) for the console. personally i believe this would only be a benefit to all parties in the gaming community but what are your thoughts?

    Is it just me, or does anyone else get the vibe that Abbie doesn't like Russian-named-girl? No eye contact with her, doesn't address her directly, and some other peculiar things like that.
