I just hate having to relearn the buttons. Why can't programmers just make these games with fully customizable control scheme mapping? I can't see why that would be hard to program. And it's not like us users are a bunch of dumbasses. Most would only change a couple of different buttons around.

It was hard for me Saturday night because I'm the only person (ever??) to play on Boxer. So I'd say "how do I do blahblah?" and none of the answers worked for me lol

H4 default is pretty close to H3 boxer. Many people say bumper jumper is one of the best but I've always been a default guy.

Played some MM H3 last night, it wasn't pretty. One thing I'll give H4, it gets you into a match faster (even if that match is 90% of the time hosted by someone in Mexico). Every time I have a terrible laggy game in H4 I look at who probably pulled host and sure enough that person was from south of the border.

I play Boxer in H4 too lol

H4 sprint is B, H3 B is grenade. So a couple of times I'd forget I don't have to sprint, hit B, grenade myself lol. (Yes, I said don't HAVE TO sprint ;). )

LOL. I grenade myself all the time, but it has nothing to do with my control scheme. 

I'm also a big fan of remote detonating myself. 

Step 1: Shoot remote at opponent

Step 2: Run stupidly at opponent

Step 3: Detonate self.

Step 4: Watch opponent pick up your detonator and run off to kill your teammates.

Me too! Lol It's like I think it will only hurt them and not me.

They're the same except sprint is equipment in H3.

The claw rules all.  My buttons haven't changed much since Halo CE.

I wouldn't mind giving a H3 a whirl on occasion if I am on other than Thursday.  I never had much time to play H3 when it was big.  I think I still even have the disk.

I was jumping a shit ton. I use bumper jumper, but I jumped a lot more than I normally do. I think it was because I'm so accustomed to using AA and sprint I just had happy fingers.

Great times Kit  in H3 thanks for getting us together.

Okay, I got 2 of the 3 map packs re-downloaded, but for some reason it's trying to charge me $5.99 for the third and I'm pretty damn sure I bought them all already.

That's really disappointing.  One final update, nod to the game, would have been great.  Must be a bandwidth issue.

I wonder if they could bring back an old playlist like Legendary Brawl.  That would be great for people that have had issues getting some of the solo achieves.  It wouldn't be combining anything, just turning a playlist on.

I use bumper jumper in H3 also. It works well for me. It's not that far off from the default controller setup that I use in H4. I can't use bumper jumper in H4, though, since I need to have sprint on the left stick. No sprint in H3, so no problem there!      :)

It IS possible to sprint in H3 using custom power-ups. I actually do have a few H3 custom games with sprint power-ups believe it or not.

you clearly have never played with me :)  I'm the guy with grenades just littering his dead body because he forgot to throw them.  Sniper Rifles are only useful as walking sticks for me.

Im the chick who grenades herself because she forgets there's a wall right there in front of her. Snipers are something I pick up only to bring to team mates lol.

you and I play halo much the same way then.  I love CTF because I can camp the flag and shotgun people who come to get it.  Nothing makes me happier than a rocket launcher with a full clip.

I've been playing H3 quite a bit lately. It's been OK. Took a few days to feel like I was back. Kind of frustrating to be matched up with non-mic'd low level randoms against a full team of 50s who haven't ever quit playing the game - this happened to me over and over. Also didn't help that I never pulled host once even though my internet has recently been upgraded, so there were a lot of laggy games where I was getting destroyed.

Looking forward to the pop boost. I'm down for some H3 customs whenever I'm on and would love to team up with folks. I seem to go back and forth a lot between H3 and H4 lately.

Shit man, center your potato.

Mostly played customs tonight, which were good.  The majority of the few MM games were lagtastic.

I wonder if MS' pledge to host all next gen games with their "Azure" infrastructure fixes that problem.
