Yesterday I forgot to send out my best wishes to our beloved Halo 3. It turned 10 on September 25th. Yay! Celebrations! Cake!
Nowadays when I play Slayer, I often get frustrated. The map rotation is at it’s worst it seems. My all time favorite map Plaza never comes up. NEVER! It’s like 343 knows that I like this map and wants to punish me for something I did. I always end up playing on Mercy. This map comes up every time I start Slayer. I hate Mercy.
Lord have Mercy.
My boyfriend and I also checked out the Weapon Tuning Test. I couldn’t get a kill. It seems like the BR is now 5 shots? I didn’t look it up so far. Maybe I should now…
Ok, I just checked. Well, 343 feels that some of the weapons in Halo 5 are not balanced or rather overpowered and don’t play the role they were supposed to play. I only cross-read it, but it seems that every weapon (12 are affected by this) is being made harder to use. Only the Active Camo will be enhanced in some way. You can read all of it here.
The testing will end on October 2 and in early November we will have a bigger update with the new and improved? weapons. I am very sceptical but we will see.
If there is a god out there, he/she/it was not planning on making me happy a couple of weeks ago. We had it all set up. Xbox FanFest with 2 events on 2 nights. For both nights we had a babysitter. For both nights! Then we had planned to visit Gamescom on Tuesday as well. My mother would have taken care of our daughter during that time. We were set up. For real.
And then? I got sick. And felt like shit. And all our plans crumbled.
