Well i would say you aren't the majority of the players. Most are like what would be the point in playing if when you buy the game everything is already there? Most of us expected to have to re-earn stuff as we played.I completely disagree. I don't feel like I'm reliving the game. I feel like it's not my game because I already had the experience. Now I just don't have anything to show for all my effort which makes me less engaged. The exact same thing happened with Destiny. Destiny 1 blew hard at launch. Just no content, but they promised a ten year game so I stuck with it. The game got better and I had invested so much time and all my stuff kept moving with me and my character was my character throughout and played it for three years straight for God knows how many hundreds of hours. Then Destiny 2 comes out, none of your previous gear or stats or anything came across and after a month I was completely done with it despite buying the expensive edition with the season pass. Everything I worked for was gone so I had no reason to stay so I quit. That's why this stuff is important.LethalQ wrote:The majority of the community seemed to not like having all the armor and stuff at the beginning of MCC and we wanted to re-earn the stuff. While I didn't really like the linear point system they used for the reach stuff it was better than just having it. MCC is supposed to be "reliving the games"... You can't relive the games if everything is there right away.If it's no biggie they should just give us the option of having it all at once or choose to grind them out.HC SOlO wrote:interesting ideas here but I still dont understand the hype. I just finished TMCC reach armor collection and I did it the same way as the first time. I did not even think about it. Just play the game and you get the armor. No big deal.Yeah, but they could easily check achievements. That's a XBL check they could do without needing access to any other data and that's data they definitely have available to them. Other games have done it as well.JustAlex1997 wrote:As 343 Industries have stated, these games aren't in any way linked to their original versions.Wow could you be more antagonistic?I Am Tiberius wrote:"It wasn't that fun back on the 360 and it looks less fun now.." - If it's less fun to you, then don't play. No one cares.
"Like who asked for this?" - Everyone asked for it, except for you.
"And why did you ask for this?" - Because it's remastered, on a different platform, and has provided new ways to unlock armor through seasons, commendations, and rank; bringing people back, instead of letting everyone enter with everything unlocked.
"I already unlocked everything. I don't want to do it again." - Good.
For those of us adults who were old enough to play the original and put in a lot of time and effort unlocking those items there should be a way of at least vastly accelerating the process a second time around. At the very least just check the achievements. If a Reach achievement was unlocked before Reach on TMCC, they should get a permanent 20x accelerator on their account.
As an adult, you should understand that the original still exists with your hard work intact. If you don't want to do it again at a higher frame rate, that's a perfectly logical (and adult, since you value that so much) reason not to.
It's still lame to grind so hard and then come back to play it again and none of the progress is there. I mean, half the nostalgia is gone when you remove personal agency from the situation and this isn't like an RPG where the fun in the game is building your character through the story, which necessitates a reset of the character anyway. Also don't know why you have disdain for adults, but let's not get off topic. So yeah, technically Halo: Reach is back, but does it really feel like it? No, because it's not my Halo Reach. Unlike the other games in the Halo series available on TMCC I can't go back to playing my character, my emblem, etc.
I mean, if the "fun" is in the progress, then why not completely reset everyone's unlocks every six months or so?
As it stands now Reach is just a rough Halo 4 beta that doesn't represent my Halo: Reach. This is some boring retread with some nauseating, Call-of-Duty/Fortnite-esque battlepass connected to it.
That's just how it feels.
