What did they lie about? Give me a time, date, or even a crappy buzzfeed article. The fact that you are only even pointing out one part of my response shows that you have no real response. I'm all for debating and losing, just give me some facts.
When have they lied? LOL...
You could have not said anything and contributed as much to the conversation.
Slow clap for you sir. Couldn't of said it better myself.
If I could describe 343i with a single word, that word would be "lazy" everything about their games H4 MCC H5, all of it just feels lazyI think of them more as disrespectful.
Disrespectful to the franchise, and disrespectful to the fans. They come off like they truly do not care about anything negative their actions may cause. I'm not exaggerating... to me, 343 only cares about money. They are willing to lie to people to get money out of them, with no care for any lack of quality or negative experience they create.
If 343 were legally allowed to create an option within Halo 5 that said "Click here to pay $10 and get split-screen option!" and all it did was permanently delete H5 from your hard drive and destroy any inserted disc, and if it had no impact on REQ pack and Halo 6 sales, they'd do it.
There's seriously no integrity at all. They do whatever makes the most money, with no other factors considered.
But in all honestly, I disagree with both of you. When have they lied? Also, disrespectful, to US, you AND me, the fans? They didn't release a half -Yoinked!- forged, like some Halo's did. Also, you do realize, at the same timeframe Halo 4 and Reach had about the same amount of content. And don't forget, we had to pay for Spartan Ops and DLC. As for Reach, that multiplayer was a bit of a mess, fun, but a mess. So take off your nostalgia goggles, and look at Halo 5 objectively. A slightly rushed (by Microsoft, not 343) Halo game, pretty well done, but wanting in the game mode area. Thats about it, right?
Clearly not worth continuing this conversation with you.
See, 343 is very slick when it comes to what they say. They rarely outright lie, but there are tons of lies of omission and specifically worded statements that sound like something other than what they really mean.
A notable example is when they said, upon Halo 5's reveal, that there wouldn't be a penalty to hip fire, because people were worried about ADS making weapons more accurate. Technically, that's true, but only because hip fire is the default state of your weapon and that wouldn't be considered a penalty. But obviously there was a bonus to accuracy for ADS. They didn't lie, but they addressed peoples concerns with some slick word play despite knowing exactly what people were worried about.
And of course the whole not mentioning the removal of most of the gametypes the series always had is a lie of omission because they knew people would be expecting those and would want to know if they were removed.
And the "free DLC maps" thing could very well end up also being a lie of omission in regards to every arena map not being an actual new, unique map. The fact that they continue to not say one way or the other whether or not that will always be the case might as well be confirmation that that's what they had planned (though that may change after people made their concerns clear).
And those are just the biggest things off the top of my head.
