Well, quite frankly I thought it was odd thatI don't think I'll be doing an Advanced mode playthrough for Portal Stories: Mel anytime soon. Not many games these days that I play back to back.
I can see how that can affect one's patience and thinking. I can't stand smoke...In my defense though, it was right after the smoke from the west coast forest fires was getting pretty thick and the combination of breathing a lot of that and staying up too late a few nights had me feeling strange.
Yeah it can actually make you light headed, and easily irritated. The next day though I woke up and when I saw how thick the smoke was in the air I closed all windows on the elevator landings of every floor in our apt building and put up signs asking tenants to keep them closed until the smoke clears. We've had Very Unhealthy rated air quality most every day since, but today we had a good bit of rain and it went down to Fair. Tomorrow there's supposed to be a couple more showers though, so hopefully this won't last much longer. I feel for all those whom lost their homes in these fires, but mostly for the innocent animals that suffer when things like this happen.I can see how that can affect one's patience and thinking.

Yeah the older Halo games will say something like hold off waves of enemies while defending the control room as the mission description for Assault on the Control Room, but that never happens actually. Instead you fight your way through very similar rooms, and if you're tricked into thinking you have to find a certain room and defend it as per the description, you're constantly thinking you're lost. There was at least two rooms with a small room suspended above which I thought I had to get into somehow to flip a certain switch or something to start the waves, so I wasted much time trying to jump to them. I even watched a play through of that mission on YT after I finished it to see if I missed anything. Apparently I did because you can actually get to the control room on foot. Instead I worked my way back to the snowy narrow path where Cortana first mentions the control room, and grabbed a Banshee there that wasn't wrecked and just flew it across to the control room. This tactic however I will use if I ever take on Legendary mode, as you can avoid some heavies by it, including Hunters. Currently I'm only playing on Normal mode. I seem to recall the part that always was tough for me believe it not was that damned "Flood" enemy, which basically looks like yeast attacking you. It's easy to run out of ammo there, or get caught reloading and die.I played Halo: Reach first in the MCC. I got onboard as soon as it was available. After that I played Combat Evolved. Yeah, they did a great job with the graphics. When switching between the old and new style, the difference is very much apparent. I remember playing the original many years ago, but I didn't really notice that the graphics were that old...
Halo 3: ODST has released recently and I have to play it soon.
Yeah, the game doesn't exactly tell you where to go most of the time. There's a lot of copy-pasting involved which makes it much much harder to navigate in some of the later levels. Repetition will become less over the following games, don't worry.
I started a first person perspective playthrough for GTA V last week. It's game changing once you install some mods to fix the FOV. Feels like a completely different game when in first person. You start noticing a lot of details you have never noticed before. I drive, shoot, fly planes, all in first person. Shooting IMO, is harder as third person cover doesn't really work since you can't see your enemies anymore...
Well I finished Halo 1, but I have to ask, did you have a problem at any point getting Halo 2 Anniversary to launch? The Outskirts mission kept crashing to desktop for me with a UE-4 Fatal Error about 2/3 way into the loading screen. I checked online and most others were having this problem. There were a few that claimed certain things fixed it, the one I tried that seemed to work at first was just launching Outskirts from the Mission Select option, but shortly into the mission I had the same fatal error crash. It is said 343 are aware of the problem and are "looking into it", but still no word on a possible fix.I played Halo: Reach first in the MCC. I got onboard as soon as it was available.

I've run past a few sections in 1 and 2 mainly when I felt the level was dragging on a lot more than it should. Sometimes you're able to traverse a large distance by simply avoiding all the enemies and just running straight to the exit of one room to the next. But when you do that, the game doesn't trigger checkpoints so if you die at the last section, you are still brought to the very first segment. So it really is better to just wipe out all the enemies from one room before you proceed to the next. I've got lucky 3-4 times and I was able to skip a chunk of some levels this way....it was pretty easy to cloak or even bunny hop past them. Rather unexpected for a Halo game...
...I'm now a couple missions into Halo 3, and the graphics, though less in need of a makeover like Halo 1 & 2 were, are a bit of a letdown from the 1 & 2 Anniversary editions. Not hugely so though.
Yeah, 3 has it's quirks. I'm not sure how to engage dual wielding in it. I assume it's supposed to be tap the C key when near a like weapon, but that doesn't do it like in Halo 2. I just finished Covenant, and captured the last part called Journey's End. I thought that part was pretty good, especially the Scarab battles. I also finally found and used one of those guns the Hunters have. Don't know why I can never pick them up off off one of their corpses. Too late to upload it tonight, I'll do it tomorrow.Halo 3 had the least repetition of the three, IMO. Yeah, the graphics, especially the character models look really dated. Gameplay largely remained the same although I really had enough of dual wielding in these games. I am glad they got rid of it in the subsequent ones. Dual wielding just didn't seem like an option to me as using a single weapon just didn't kill enemies quick enough. Adding to that, you lose the second wielded weapon when you enter a vehicle or throw a grenade etc made the mechanic just feel awful to me...
I think you have to hold down the 'C' button to grab the second and dual wield. Not just press.I'm not sure how to engage dual wielding in it. I assume it's supposed to be tap the C key when near a like weapon, but that doesn't do it like in Halo 2.
Yeah, now that I think of it, I may have been holding C to dual wield in Halo 2. DOH!I think you have to hold down the 'C' button to grab the second and dual wield. Not just press.
You're playing it without dual wielding? What do you think about the enemies? Do they die just as quick with a single weapon?
