We must embrace change. We must learn to adapt. While I may look at this brilliant, in-depth Halo 4 Multiplayer video and have a tiny little whinge about the 'purity' of Halo's balance, blah blah blah, even the purist in me has to concede that — yes — it looks a little bit spiffy. And yes, I will play it until my wife tosses our TV over the balcony.
But allow me this little whine — maybe Halo 4 will tip things a bit too far in the 'you get points for absolutely everything you do' direction? I like playing multiplayer shooters, not pinball. And I like to see skill rewarded not... other things!
Also — ordanance drops? I dunno...
Okay okay, I'll stop. Halo 4 is looking top notch. And will most likely be completely customisable, meaning that while normal human beings who aren't stuck in their ways can enjoy the benefits of a modern shooter, old fogeys like myself will most likely be able to strip things back MLG style.
Regardless — Halo 4. I'm excited.
