I haven't gotten into multiplayer on Halo yet.
I'm trying to knock out some of the co-op missions to unlock some things first. Nothing pisses me off more than having to play a game handicapped simply because I didn't go out and get it at midnight.
Still giving BO2 a shot. I've found that the SMGs are actually far more useful for me than they have been in past games. I was usually an assault rifle guy because the SMGs spray half a clip of hit markers before finally landing a shot. Seriously, in MW3 I was using an entire clip for one kill and then I would be caught reloading.
In BO2, the SMGs are far more accurate and you don't have to empty one to get the kill. I also like how you can move a ton faster with them. With lightweight, you can actually make it around a corner when you're getting shot at. Wasn't happening for me with the assault rifle. Someone would have the jump on me from distance or be positioned behind me and I couldn't really do anything. SMGs are pretty much my mainstay now. I can get around the corner and move across the map a ton faster. The spawns and cluster of players makes it almost impossible to win more than a couple of fights without getting overwhelmed by numbers. I've noticed I've been able to catch more guys who are lone-wolfing with the SMG and I think it's probably because I am getting around fast enough and getting to them quick enough that they haven't had the time to catch up to their team after respawning.
From what I have seen of Halo though, I'm pretty sure that it's gonna win out.
I like the weapons far better. I honestly can't stand killstreaks at all. I think they're a detriment and always have been. I'm more of a gun-on-gun guy which is why Perfect Dark 64 will always be the best FPS ever created, IMO. I hate the stupid armor abilities in Halo but at least it's not like some ridiculous paper plane flying around looking for someone to bomb.
I absolutely hate the claymores and bouncing betties. They're completely asinine. Just more free kills for the people who use them and more cheap deaths for those they are used on. The dumb ***** looking DirecTV dish, or whatever that is, is another annoyance. Same with the electricity nades. Just blow up and kill me. Rather than slowing me down and making me completely incapable of doing anything at all and totally vulnerable, just blow up already.
Between the killstreaks that are totally automated and guarantee kills, the equipment that is proximity triggered and completely unavoidable once triggered and the other dumb equipment that slows down your ability to do anything for a few seconds, it's almost impossible to refrain from throwing your controller through the screen.
I think Halo is gonna take over the Xbox once I get into it.
Borderlands 2 has been too damn addicting to put down or else I would probably have already switched over.
