The lights are on
343 Industries took up the mantle of the Halo franchise after Bungie, and the studio has done it proud. Find out what's changed, what's new, and what's still great about Halo 4 in this week's podcast.
Host Matt Helgeson is joined by GI editors Matt Miller (who reviewed the game) and Kyle Hilliard for some in-depth discussion about one of the year's best games.
Note: Hi all, I want to apologize for this week's podcast being late. It's also a bit shorter than usual. We had a full day of meetings in relation to an upcoming issue of GI, and there wasn't much time for anyone. Sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you, but it was the best I could do today -- Matt.

No problem, Matt. We got a podcast, you got your meetings done. Win win.
Or maybe not win for you guys because meetings. :P
Don't sweat it, Matt. Just make sure it doesn't happen again or I'm going to take 10 points from Slytherin! :P
I did notice that there is a fair amount of flak for the loadouts and the power weapons being labeled. All in all I don't think it's a bad thing because it's all about keeping an even field and if they keep switching up the power weapon locations then it does just that. And the fact that as mentioned, the only thing the loadouts allow is customization, there is no sort of upperhand deal involved.
It's ok Matt, we forgive you.
I agree about not being able to adjust volume controls. The sounds is incredible but hours into a campaign, I could use a little less volume in a few areas. I put on subtitles halfway through because when shooting I couldn't hear some of the talking. So far I've beat the campaign and I loved it. Haven't had a chance to jump into multiplier yet. Looking forward to having Veterans day off and a house to myself.
Love your podcasts!
