You're thinking of Valentine's Eve, a dark day in LT's history to be sure. That's when the chat thread got closed down permanently (and around the time the Off-Topic board was retired IIRC) but there was another, earlier spamfest that got it closed down for a brief period.
Yeah, I'm an objective fan myself (CTF or bomb) but I love H5 so far. The jet thrusters are so awesome, and wall climbing is an extra shot of what I love most about Halo because you can run around the level so much more nicely. I agree with Prime that I think the jet boosters make the fights longer, and I like that I can charge a guy (my general strategy) and have a higher chance of getting out w/o dying because I can dash behind cover. I actually liked speedball a lot - it's not my favourite because I think more and more people are staying back with the BR which isn't as fun. I fucking love charging a dude and killing em, that is hilarious. Cometing people is fun too but I've only pulled it off naturally twice.
Nah, I'm with Plant on this one. The only real difficulty in the game is that you don't actually know where you are shooting. I think this is the best they could do but I think it will make it really easy. Also using the sights was not cheating, that's how ya did it.
Yeah, things aren't looking good for Sonic Boom. I mean, can we see a possible contender for worst Sonic game ever (even worse than '06)? This coupled with Cartoon Network's zero advertisement for the new animated series (unless they cancel it outright, animated Boom looks to be a one and done season), looks like Sonic Boom is heading for a Sonic Bomba.
