Can't wait for Halo 4 but if 343 tied the music to the sound effects like Bungie did in Reach I will have second thoughts on buying it.

I borrowed my cousin's 360 just so I could rent Halo 4 and beast through the campaign. Good thing she's a girl, lol.


The campaign is all I care about in Halo, and Halo 4's campaign looks amazing. Can't wait. Hopefully Redbox stocks the game quickly.

Oh yes, in my excitement, I read the email wrong. I get the HD650 TOMORROW, not today. rolleyes.gif

Once I pay through the campaign I'm planning on selling off my Xbox. I think that's the last game I care about for the system.

I'm the same way.  I'm not a fan of the competitive multiplayer, but the campaigns can get pretty darn epic at times.  And they're tons of fun in co-op.

 

Also, I have always and will always love driving the vehicles in Halo games.  Loved them since the very first time I got in warthog on Halo: CE and spent hours trying to ramp it off cliffs and run over my fellow marine buddies.    Who doesn't love filling up a warthog with marines then driving it over a cliff and sticking it with grenades?  evil_smiley.gif

Head-fi co-op? :p

The only games I mainly play for the multiplayer is Call of Duty. Everything else is purely single player, and maybe co-op. CoD's charm is in it's easy to play, hard to master playstyle, and frenetic fast pacing. I can't stomach other FPS games online. They tend to be too damn slow for me. Halo included.

Halo does feel slow and I don't like the bunny hoping and shoot/melee stuff.  COD is fun, although I haven't played the multiplayer since MW2.  It seemed like some of the perks were getting out of hand and with all the gunships and stuff constantly raining hellfire down on the maps.  I haven't tried Battlefield 3 really, although I have it.

 

I do love Gears multiplayer though.  It's an adrenaline rush.

 

Co-op games are great though, and lots of fun.  I also love really immersive (and dark) single player games like Bioshock, Dead Space, Condemned, FEAR, etc.  That's where headphones really shine!

Halo 3 MP was one of the main reasons why I bought a 360 in the first place, but like COD4 (and MW2 to some extent) the MP in later HALO/COD games seemed to lack the polish and "fun" factor that made 1, 2, & 3 so enjoyable. With the exception of sniper rifle shots, audio cues in Halo are also weak to me, though i guess the addition of a Radar means audio is secondary/tertiary.

On another note, got a replacement knob for the M-Stage... what do you guys think?

Looks like a Schiity volume knob to me...
post #8878 of 24807

Looks nice.  Very similar to the knob on my WA6SE.

I'm a sucker for big volume knobs.  It allows for very fine volume adjustments.

^ Err... I think that may have more to do with headphone sensitivity.
post #8880 of 24807

Would you guys say the HD558 are closer in sound quality to the HD598 than the hd518?  I tested the HD518 and HD598 over the weekend, and didn't really like the 518 at all.  loved the 598.  

 

The cost of the 558 is much more doable for me as a future upgrade for me than the 598.

 

Also, this thread has been a great help to me guys.  so thanks!
