Weekly Halo UpdateThis weeks Halo update, which was supposed to be hosted on Haloplayers this week, but due to technical difficulties (who running a website hasnt experienced those??) they were down. So this weeks post ended up on Halo.bungie.org. The updates are growing slimmer and slimmer folks, enjoy them while they last.
Post-combat behavior is in; AIs now can now comment to themselves or each other after an encounter, shoot enemies on the ground to make sure theyre still dead, and so on. The crewmen fight better – better than the Bobs in Marathon, notes Chris Butcher. AI units now know the difference between darkness and light, and consequently know when to use the flashlight. Signaling animations are in; youll see Marines waving, pointing things out to each other and so on. You can order Marines to get the hell out of the Warthog so you can drive it. This is a more humane alternative to the previous procedure for removing them from vehicles.
