    Okay, seriously. This thread *is* about Halo. I lied. This is getting out of hand. Do we need a subforum just about Halo? Because having almost every thread about Halo is a bit ridiculous. And half of the threads seem like they should be merged anyway.

    What do you guys think?

    Since Halo 3's release, yeah, a whole subforum about Halo would actually make sense. And I barely played Halo to begin with.

    If you think that's bad, maybe we should open another subforum for Super Smash Bros Brawl. When that game comes out for Wii, HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE IN THE GAME SUBFORUM. Too many threads about SSBB will be rampant, and...well, you get the idea.

    It'll be prevalent for a couple weeks, but it'll fade. Gotta expect it from such a big title, especially with multiplayer.

    Well until they come out of the Smash Bros closet, it doesn't seem necessary at all.

    Nah, the Halo hype will die down. Let it have the spotlight for a while.

    No subforum. Event threads for TFW can stay as long as dated. Don't quite understand the "SPOILER" vs. "NON SPOILER" thread, but whatever! Halo 3 talk will die out within two weeks, but we'll continue events.

    It'll pick up when Bungie releases new maps, skins, etc.

    fixed! :D  But seriously, whats with Xbots and average FPS games? (aka, Bioshock and Halo)

    Also, I'll be up for a TFW Smash session. Im no good at the game though, so right now I can tell you that Im going to have my ass kicked by Smash veterans.

    Xbots, oh so witty.

    And there isn't very much else out there for FPS right now.

    Oh yeah I forgot console FPS FTL TLA. Just can't do it without a mouse and keyboard. So much more responsive and accurate. Too clumsy and cumbersome to use a controller.

    I'm the same way, but I've managed to do pretty good in Halo. Just takes a lot of sit down and learn game time. Or just sneaking up to people and pistol whipping them. That actually makes me quite happy.

    I love using the wii-mote setup in MP3 for FPS controls. straffing and also being able to lock-on to an enemy whilst still being able to fire anywhere I want is also great. someone tries to flank you and they're screwed.

    If you consider Bioshock an average FPS, what the fuck does an above average FPS look like?

    Ya really?

    And Smash Bros is not a button masher at all. I don't see any reason why you'd be button mashing in Smash because it sure as hell isn't gonna help you, nor is it what the veteran players do.

    They look like Half Life 2, Far Cry (ok, the last few levels sucked), and the first Call of Duty (have not played 2, 3, or 4). Also, Ive sadly not had time to finish it yet, but Metroid Prime 3 is shaping up to be very above average.

    Seriously, would you kindly admit that Bioshock's gameplay is average. Bioshock did an amazing job at the atmosphere in the game, but once you get about an hour into it, it just boils down to: follow the arrow, kill anything that moves, kill the Big Daddies, move along to the next level. Sadly, I have no desire to play through it again. The game itself was a really cool interactive movie, but actually playing didnt do much for me. It could have used more Big Daddy types, and more parts that did similar things that the Cohen's Masterpiece part did.

    In short, I loved the world of Bioshock, but once I was there it felt like I was stuck doing the same thing over and over and over again.

    I pretty much loved everything about Bioshock, but all in all I am not a big FPS fan- and in all honestly, I don't really consider it one. Yes, it's FP, and yes, you shoot things, but it was actually more along the lines of an adventure/action/survival horror game ala Resident Evil 4. Though with all the new abilitys you get throughout the game, I hardly found myself doing the same thing over and over. My only real problem was the lack of any real difficulty, as you cannot die. I would also say that it was solely a single player experience, so if you decided to use the same abilitys thorughout, it would seem monotonous since they made the game a bit longer then the standard FPS campaign mode. At least, that's my view of it. I feel the same way for all the Metroid Primes as well.
