View Full Version : MPlayer Halo...Funnest thing ever!

I just spent playing 6 hours of multiplayer Halo with 3 other friends. We had such a fun time. We played every single mode of multiplayer, and every single level in multiplayer. I won about 35.

If you haven't yet, do this. It's as fun as it gets.

I must warn you about playing online.. Unless you enjoy slide shows, or have a SERIOUSLY fast connection, youll hate online Halo. I tried it once. Downloaded all the gamespy software I needed, connected, found a server somewhere semi near to me (pinged it at 100ms), waited for others to join (there we 6 of us total), waited for host to launch, waited to be synced with host, waited to spawn, pressed a couple buttons, waited to see the effects of those buttons (I jumped :) ), saw a warthog coming towards me, took a couple shots at him, tried to run away, waited for my button pressing to catch up with the server, noticed that i was lying on the ground, read in the upper left that i was run over, threw controller down, shut off xbox :) :)

This was NOT a fun experience for me, as you may have guessed. xboxgamer, stick with playing with your friends. a smooth game with fewer people is by far more fun that a choppy game with more.

Carnage, you give up too easily. :)

I usually have to go through 3 or 4 servers to find one that doesn't lag. It is very rare to find one with over 4 or more people that doesn't lag. But once in a while you do find a good one and it is a lot of fun. Especially team DM with vehicles.
