2 more games to complete the trilogy. Its like 2 more month with a girl you dont want to be with. Its like 2 more weeks of finals. Its like 2 more days of grinding to be level 99 on Legend of Legia. Its like 2 more hours of playing ODTS....
There never was a chance at overtaking CoD, honestly. There was a chance at least to be a solid, competing product in the #2 slot, but you know, the way 343 handles things... --- Invading world of the guilty as spirit of vengeance.

I really liked Halo 4 at first. Just the fact that it was fast, and consistent. Shots went where you aimed, people died quickly. It felt great.
But soon the flaws starting to leak out. Within 2 weeks they became glaring. After about a month or maybe a bit more... they drove me to stop playing it.
Its the same thing that happened to me with Halo 3 and Reach.
If CoD wasnt terrible now (imo) I would have abandoned ship too.
Unfortunately after Mw2 the net code of that series just went to total s***. Im not sure what happened, but crappy net code and poor hit registration is a game killer for me. I wont even bother playing it. And thats not even considering all the other random BS they added on purpose to the gameplay. I loved CoD4. Not as much as Halo CE or Halo 2... but it was a great game. Mw2 and on though... --- balls
