Well you are when you offer no retort of any value and just repeat the exact thing I said back at me. You blatantly ignore my points and simply say I am wrong. Very immature.I'm a troll for having the audacity to disagree with you?My caps and exclamations are purely to get across my disbelief at the idiocy which you present to me. Me saying sod their business means I don't care for it. It has nothing to do with charity so I don't know where you pull that from. If they were a charity this would all be excusable. However they are not selling people games out of the kindness of their hearts lmao. I don't get what your point is.May I suggest decaf for all that hyperventilation and rage?WHY THE DESPERATION TO SWITCH BLAME TO THESE GUYS??? They are the ones solely responsible for the game I bought 6 years ago being a total mess today. They're a business who regularly ships broken products. Sod their business. Postums doesn't have any point whatsoever. Did you even read what I said. They have had six flipping years of hit reg being reported and have done NOTHING except literally laugh at the people reporting it just saying they are bad at the game. Arguing with you people is an actual waste of time.I could ask you the same question: why the desperation to shift the blame TO these guys?Nah, this company has staff that directly laugh at people on stream trying to bring evidence towards them and the post Postums made was near insulting. People have been reporting broken hit reg for 6 years now so this has nothing to do with Microsoft and their release schedule. Postums saying these things take time when they have had 6 years of dismissing bug reports is just awful. Blame 343 cause it's totally their fault. The way Postums said "there is effectively a legacy error here" when talking about hit reg was beyond annoying. It is not at all a legacy error. A legacy error is a bug that has been carried forward into the future from the previous title except this wasn't a bug at all. Halo 3 OG functioned correctly for the hardware it was released on. 343 for the past 6 years have been lazily updating the games to run at 60 fps without changing a thing about them to accommodate that, and he has the cheek to compare it to a legacy error. Its things like the animations for first person in halo CE running at 30 fps compared to the game at 60 on MCC. Pure laziness and cutting corners. Why are people so desperate to shift blame away from these guys? I see it on every forum thread.I said it earlier in the thread, but the call to release or not isn't 343's call; it's Microsoft's. Want to blame anybody? Blame the execs forcing 343 to follow this release schedule. No doubt they were aware of the hit registration issues and trying to fix them as much as possible.Screecherz wrote:Well it happened. Halo 3 was released with busted hit reg. If you want any hope of landing your shots you better be aiming 100 milliseconds into the future, because having a red reticle doesn't mean -Yoink- in this game. As happy as I am to see Halo 3 looking pristine with a currently bustling playerbase, the awful shot registration makes it feel like I'm playing in mud. It feels exactly like Halo 1 PC's terrible ping compensation where you need to anticipate where the player is going to be as your shots will otherwise miss if you aim at a moving target.
Watching my clips back in theater (which is a very cumbersome experience on keyboard and mouse) paints a clear picture about how aiming works in this game. In the original Halo 3 you could shoot directly at the players and even lag behind them and shots would hit. If you're not extremely deliberate about aiming far ahead of people in Halo 3's rendition of MCC then you have essentially no hope of landing shots. It feels terrible.
That being said? They DID improve it over the original, by far.
343, whether you like it or not, has its hands full with CURRENT titles. They're also a business. Doesn't make sense for them to allocate that much resources for a game that is nearly half the age of some of its player base.
I'm not saying all critique is undue, but there is a difference between truth, opinion and hyperbolic outrage.
And whether you admit or not, Postums has a point: the game was made to run on hardware from THIRTEEN YEARS AGO. If you think there's not going to be an issue fixing that, you're frankly being unrealistic. Porting it to the XBONE was enough of a challenge; porting it to PC is a whole other mess.
Also: "sod their business"? Seriously? What do you think game companies are, a charity...?
Please explain to me then why you feel as if "I could ask you the same question: why the desperation to shift the blame TO these guys?" was at all appropriate given the context other than to be a devils advocate troll. Why shouldn't they harbour all the blame considering they had six years to get this right?
Get off your high horse, jackass.
Halo 3 cannot release without perfect hit reg
