The lights are on
This week at gameinformer.com is devoted to the changing face of Halo 4's multiplayer and we are starting things out by talking about the competitive side of things. You might have heard that 343 Industries is interested in making some changes to the classic Halo formula. We sat down with lead multiplayer designer Brad Welch to talk about the new emphasis on story, customizable loadouts, and the new and updated modes for Halo 4. Watch the video below to learn more about what your competitive multiplayer experience will look like in Halo 4 and stay tuned to the site throughout the week to learn about the new co-op experience called Spartan Ops.

All this coverage of Halo 4 has actually gotten me booting up Reach again from time to time.
Even though I'm not really a big fan of competitive multiplayer, I'm liking how they're incorporating it into the overall story and I admit getting to customize our own loadouts and powers sounds like it will be a lot of fun.
I'm also really glad sprint is becoming a base ability. My one small complaint with Reach was that if you wanted to sprint you had to give up using the other cool abilities like camo, jetpacks, and holograms.
Obviously I'm more interested in the new Spartan Ops mode but it's nice to see the competitive crowd getting so much attention as well.
I just want to say im sick of everyone complaining about Halo 4. Just because you don't like the new additions (which they need) doesn't mean you have to go hating. Halo needs a new and fresh feel. I have been playing halo since its release on '01 and I love all of them. I have faith in 343i and i don't think they have made any bad moves yet. The whole custom load outs, all games have those these days and Halo eventually would have added it too. Stop complaining. No one wants to listen to haters. Halo FTW.
The armor looks weird and awesome at the same time.
Money Quote "We are not taking out any of the old functionality...its a halo tradition." Good Lord, thank you. You have single-handedly restored my hope for Halo 4.
The game looks pretty good. Don't know how they're going to get around the fact that Halo 3 was "Finishing the Fight" or with the story. Probably will get this after I see reviews and see Yahtzee's take on the game. But I'm still more interested in this game than the next reskin of COD that is due to come out this year.
Please don't screw this up 343!
