In Response To: Halo Update: Desperate Measures Edition (Matt)

: Hey all-

: Since the good folks at Haloplayers haven't posted it yet and their forum
: seems to be down, I'm taking the unusual measure of posting this week's
: Halo Update here. I don't like doing this because I want people to visit
: all the sites that get the Halo Update, but I do want it up somewhere so
: those of you on the East Coast can read it and go to bed or do whatever
: else you do on Friday nights.

: You should all go read it again tomorrow at Haloplayers to help me assuage my
: guilt.

: Without further ado....

: Like Neil Diamond, the Halo Update has steadfastly refused to die. But will
: there be enough data to keep it going until its first birthday?

: - Post-combat behavior is in; AIs now can now comment to themselves or each
: other after an encounter, shoot enemies on the ground to make sure they're
: still dead, and so on.

: - The crewmen fight better ľ better than the Bobs in Marathon, notes Chris
: Butcher.

: - AI units now know the difference between darkness and light, and
: consequently know when to use the flashlight.

: - Signaling animations are in; you'll see Marines waving, pointing things out
: to each other and so on.

: - You can order Marines to get the hell out of the Warthog so you can drive
: it. This is a more humane alternative to the previous procedure for
: removing them from vehicles.

: - Marcus made the Banshee contrails look nicer.

: - We fixed some specular lighting issues.

: - Marty got all the music hooked up in the last mission of the game and is
: fiddling around with it so it matches the action and doesn't get
: obnoxious.

: - At nearly all times, several people in the office are playing the game.
: Co-op in particular is a lot of fun, but there's plenty of multiplayer
: action to be had. Bungie employees speak in awe of a certain 12-player CTF
: game that occurred a couple nights back. "It was just like a
: war," said Hardy. "Exactly like we hoped it would be."

: -Matt

So does that mean that the bots are in the game? Matt, Please answer me please

that's me in the bear suit
