If ANYONE complains about joining in-session games I will smack the ever loving crap out of them. Only complete ass-backwards morons liked the system in the old Halo games where if someone quit (which happened 9/10 times) you were screwed if you wanted a full team of people.
I don't enjoy all the new editions personally. It's like WHY did they take so many of CoD's multiplayer concepts and ideas and put them into this game? Some of them simply add to the experience, but it doesn't need half of them at least....feels too similar to run-and-gun nonsense of CoD now ;( --- Solid's snake still shoots liquid, it's just that it's null.
"Oh, derpy derp, CoD has grenade indicators, now Halo's selling out, derrrrrp"
Grenade Indicators Instant Respawns Join In Session Perks Ordinances (more similar to Homefront, but still) Loadouts and my favorite, "Spartan Ops".
The core is Halo but everything besides that is COD.
Besides Join In Session, I'm totally fine with all of those. Halo fans are really starting to sound too close to hipsters for my tastes. It's almost like you all play Halo because CoD became the big shooter. But then you don't want them expanding it because then more people might start playing it. It's a good game, just be happy 343 didn't pull an RE6.
