You suck at teh internet!!!

And if you had problems playing Halo on easy... your not worthy or holding an Xbox controller.

(FYI, your old thread is where this one should be... the HALO forum!)

I wasnt a master, but I sure as hell didnt start on easy. Played normal my first time through and it took me a little under a week.

Never played Halo, or any game for that matter on 'easy' so I don't recall that. :p

First time I played Halo about 10 minutes into it I called my neighbor and he came over and we played it the next 3 days non-stop. Good Times. I plan on playing Halo 2 through by myself though, "Sweet, now I can go play with myself." - South Park.

Welcome aboard clayschinbein9!

I don't know... I feel guilty if I played a game on easy. It just won't be official when you beat the game. As for Halo┐... oops... ? I believe I started on normal.

Halo2... Maybe something higher like Heroic or Legendary since my gf is a "Halo" fanatic and I know we both want to play it badly ASAP... So we might have to go co-op when we first pop it in.

:cheers:

I didnt even bother playing it on easy because its for ppl who dont know how to play a video and are "inexperinced".Because they suck and should never be able to hold any system of any kind in there possesion/hands/tentacles if they have any.

Still whats even the use of playing Halo on easy when theres no fun or challenge in it unless you just bad at video games.

sometimes i do it when i'm playing with complete and utter noobs....usually girls that don't know the L-trigger from the control stick...

and i can win using only melee :)

i like posting now because every time i do, i get to see that bad-ass sig of mine :yikes:

I'm very likely going to play Halo 2 starting on Legendary mode...but, I'll play Co-op because I have a buddy that is just as a Halo die-hard as I am....Too bad it won't be on XBL, but, there is always split screen on the same XBox...besides, we know when to take breaks to grab another cold beer :D

I played on Easy my first time through because Normal was too hard for me. Halo was my first FPS besides Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, and Xbox is the first console I have ever owned.

Play against me sometime and you will see how far I have come since then. ;)

Let up on the guy yeesh, maybe he doesn't care if he has a cool avatar or not, I mean your sig is so damn original.

Btw, yes, I do remember playing campaign for the first time (but not on easy). I'll be starting Halo 2 on Heroic, and then Legendary. I don't want to get frustrated at first. It will be my "project."

Let me get this straight.
A new guy, calling another new guy a noob, yet you roll in here with a sig that violates our size limit rule.

Anyway, drop it. Get off it. Let it go. Everyone is new here at some point. Even Maximus with his 12000 posts was a noob here at some time... ages ago.

We wouldn't have members if we kept driving out the new people. So relax and give them time to get into the swing here at XBA.
This is my last and only comment regarding this. Hopefully we can act like mature people and I won't have to say another word about this.

Anyways, yea, I remeber playing the first few levels on easy, but then I decided to play on Normal because Easy was, well, easy. I'll start Halo 2 playing on Normal.

I started on Normal and beat it in four days. Then I went for Heroic which was a challenge, that's when I learnt to use the Pistol. On Normal I just used the Assualt Rifle, which was fine, but for higher difficulty it was headshots galore.

All always remember my first Golden Elite kill on Heroic, it was on Assualt on the Control Room, on a bridge, I opened the door and it jumped out at me, I legged it back to a stump on the bridge and climbed up, it tried to launch up at me again and I gave it a quick melee to the head just as it reached me, instant kill. :cheers:

Ahh, good times. :)

I completed Easy after Legendary, just so I could have all the icons on the level select screen.

My buddy and I were playing some coop legendary last night and found a new, more challenging way to play the game (new for us, anyway). Get the marines against you as soon as you can in each level to make for a double threat. Spartans vs Humans vs covenant. Those little jerks are good with those snipers. Obviously it doesn't work on Truth and Reconciliation.

I'm sure some other internet genius out there figured this out ages ago, but I was happy to find something new in the game after three years.

Speaking of old memories, I don't think I'll ever forget the first time I boarded the T&R and those invisible swordsmen busted out and were killing my guys and I had no idea wtf was going on. It felt like a great movie sequence out of aliens or something. Good stuff.

I can not wait for halo 2.

Well, that was a bunch of wasted time because you don't get any icons for easy, do you? Homer nod. D'oh!

Seriously dude, lay off the kid. He is just trying to get some input from people. At least he posts stuff thats worth reading.

Back to the topic at hand:

My first time through the original I played with Xtopia on Heroic, we beat the game that same day. Since then I have gone through on every mode and now always on Legendary. Which is probably how I will start out on Halo 2.

I started of with normal. it wasnt easy for me bc i was always dieing, but i still held onto normal. after i beat it on normal, i went to easy to see the difference. it was so easy, beat it in a day. then i went onto heroic, it was challenging too, especially on legendary. then beating legendary was one of the greatest accomplishments i ever had in video games.

now 2 years later, playing on legendary is like playing on normal for me.

i will prolly start off on normal for halo 2 so i can go by as fast as i can then play multiplayer. after a while i will play campaign again to explore and take my time.

On easy the Elites with the swords can't even kill you with one hit.

Hey when I FIRST played halo it was hard... Well on heroic anyway (throught I would start it on hard :whistle: ) Playing it through in co-op was good practice though, after clocking it, it was a breeze on my own. Then I clocked it on legendary :)

Yeah I remember popping in HALO 1 the VERY FIRST TIME.... Almost like having sex the very first time... well maybe that's not such a good analogy...

But anyways... I sure remember tossing a grenade at some grunts on the ship and laughing when they yelled "GRENADE!" and ran... The first time I stuck a plasma grenade on a grunt he ran back to his mates yelling "GET IT OFF ME!!!" and even I was rolling on the floor when the grenade exploded, killing him and taking out his party...

The intense battles with hunters and elites, the spookiness of the flood... I'm going to start playing Halo 1 through again tonight... freshen up my skills.. :)
