        >it’s gonna be garbage
        Then why even wait for that? "kino" means garbage in french, right? That’s why you always use it to describe shitty things? Answer me.

          Kino is film in german, which /tv/ started using to mean “good films” and then that spread to other boards to just mean “good”

            Kino comes from Greek and it means “movement”, dumb anglogermcuck. You will never be European.

        It’s funny because they made a huge deal about the space combat before the game came out.

        No one’s going to make that mod. People always expect modders to do crazy shit but all you’ll get is anime boobs and texture swaps.

      I always thought that Action Sack should’ve had a space battle map with seraphs vs sabres. Or sabres vs sabres if balancing was a big issue.

      Long Night of Solace was cool as a kid but looking back it’s an exceedingly simple mission that overstays its welcome.

      I agree they should have made a dogfighting multiplayer mode

      Missed opportunity. Also high FPS apparently makes this mission impossible on legendary lol

        I believe they fixed that issue a while back but yeah it was virtually fucking impossible on release. Same with that falcon turret section on Exodus.

        Wait, what does FPS change about the space combat? I played Reach on MCC recently and this mission was kicking my ass, and I never had that issue with it on Xbox.

        played blazing star, star ixiom, strike suit zero, macross 30 and macross delta scramble
        and i think this halo reach did it perfectly fine, not extraordinaire but it does the job.

          you don’t even know a single good space shooter

          It’s a basic bitch vehicle section, it’s interesting for mere moments. TIE Fighter and Rogue Squadron would blow your minds.

            I played rogue squadron and the new Star Wars squadrons.

            The saber fight is still fun and well made for an arcade space shooter.

                  I thought it had basically no players. As long as I can play pubs without having to go use discord.

      I 100% guarantee you that the random Sabre mission was Bungie playtesting mechanics for Destiny that ended up getting cut.

      That mission was a test for Destiny, much like how a lot of Reach was a test for destiny. So the missions you’re looking for got cut from Destiny.

        halo reach was made on the tiger engine which they slightly modified to make destiny 1. which is why halo reach and destiny 1 have similar easthics.

            That’s probably the worst one, honestly
            There’s some neat stuff in there, but get ready to subject yourself to a middle aged writer spending endless paragraphs describing a let’s play of Halo CE

        The only one I’ve read is Shadow of Intent after downloading it on a whim after learning based Halfjaw is the protagonist. It was pretty good but the depiction of Sangheili worlds as being somehow inexplicably stuck in the medieval period (complete with using literal animal-drawn carts to move stuff around) but with plasma guns and laser swords was really, really fucking dumb.

        I read the first three: Fall of Reach, The Flood and First Strike. After that I read Contact Harvest and one or two others but my interest began to wane after awhile

        The original run or the revised one? I liked fall of reach way back when I read it, but I heard they changed a bunch of shit when Reach came out.

        I liked it a lot too.
