Re: Started playing Halo again...
I love the needler. It PWNZ you! Sorry, had to say it. Too bad they're changing it for Halo 2, I liked the way it worked in Halo 1. And yes, the only way to play Halo is in Legendary difficulty, the game is very fun when you actually fear the enemies and are forced to use strategy. Custom Edition is nice, it adds a lot of options and the netcode/performance is much improved. No real reason not to, since it's basically the full multiplayer game in a stand-alone setting.
BTW Ultimate, check out Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders for the Xbox when it's released in a couple weeks, that looks like it should be really fun (well, if you like Dynasty Warriors type action with RTS elements).
