Sunday Q&As

    About Halo, Period on PC.IGN.Com wraps up their week-long coverage of the upcoming PC version of Halo with a Q&A with Gearbox' Randy Pitchford, learning more about why they are foregoing co-op support, the 16 player multiplayer limit, whether mouse support will reduce the challenge presented by console controls, and more. Thanks Frans.
  • Exarch
    HomeLAN Fed's Exarch Q&A talks with David Adams of Realm Interactive about Exarch, their upcoming MMORPG, confusingly referring to this as the replacement for the now-cancelled Trade Wars project, when previous indications were that Exarch was simply the new name for Trade Wars (story).
  • Dark and Light
    HomeLAN Fed's Dark and Light Q&A talks with NP Cube's Laurent Paret and Stephane Quilichini about Dark and Light, their upcoming MMORPG, trying to justify claims of unprecedented scope for such a game and offering one of the more unusual company origin stories you will ever encounter.
  • Dark Fall
    The Dark Fall Q&A on Gamer's Hell chats with Jonathan Boakes of XXv Productions, offering a quick overview of their supernatural-themed graphic adventure game.

Yay, more Halo bashing. I can't wait til this comes out simply so you wankers can find some other game to bash, since your repetetive criticisms are getting tiresome.
Preach on brother! I'm tired of this bashing too. Jeebus, some people need something more constructive to do with their time.

Stop talking out of your arse and just admit you couldn’t be bothered.

Regardless of how you feel about Halo PC, Randy Pitchford is indeed an ass during interviews. Just like any 'good' politician, he has an uncanny ability to spin Negatives into Positives.

Had it come out long ago I would be interested in modding coop into it(if possible), but now I'lll probably be too busy with modding elsewhere.

It's not the weakest PC port ever, not unless you count the fact that it originally was intended for PCs, then it's a mediocre port. If it has total mouse support, doesn't require the use of keyboards in menus, and is optimized for PC performance, I'll be content. To buy it at $30. :p

lololololololololololol @ Dan!

Heyblo PC = Bargin Bin, and that's only if by some chance it hits the bins right at a time that no other games are coming out. Waiting 2 years, and then not even getting all the features the original game had? (co-op) No thanks, Randy. Every time I see the numerals 007, I get sick thinking about gearbox anyway.

I grow more disappointed with Halo PC with each Q&A. Having waited so long for this, I finally broke down and tried Halo on the Xbox. What a disappointment that was. Abysmal level design coupled with boring scripted events.

Oh well, there are enough PC games this year to keep me busy.

-IGNPC: Is the standard multiplayer limit still 16? Could you elaborate on this a bit?

-Randy Pitchford: All of the new multiplayer maps were designed for 16 or fewer players. The game play is best with that number for most of the maps and we really like being able to promise a reasonably consistent quality of experience for all kinds of connection types from 56k modems to commercial broadband.

How about making bigger maps for larger numbers of players? Not fucking brain surgery is it. And “consistent quality of experience” for 56k players is the biggest piece of bullshit excuse I’ve ever heard.

-IGNPC: What's up with cooperative multiplayer over LAN or Internet?

-Randy Pitchford It turned out to be a really, insanely difficult problem to do this over a network

Stop talking out of your arse and just admit you couldn’t be bothered. Wait till some clever modder gets over this “insanely difficult problem” in a mater of months.
This has to be the wankest console to PC conversion yet.

I only play Halo single player co-op and with no new content for the story I'll wait for a bargain bin copy.

It'll be interesting on how much this sells. With 3 million X-Box copies sold I wonder if there will be significant overlap between X box and PC markets for poor sales.
