Hello everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted. I’ve been a little busy with real life stuff. I have still had time to play games though! In fact, I’ve been playing the first Halo game at my friend C’s house. We actually managed to finish it last night in co-op mode with normal difficulty.
C has been playing games for years, and is very good. He also has so many games, and he loves to introduce them to me and teach me how to play. I’m really lucky he is willing to teach me and is patient with me. He says I’m a fast learner and have improved so much. One of his other friends saw me playing for a bit, and even said I was a good shot. It was nice to hear, because I still think of myself as being really new and not being very good yet. We make a really good team, probably because he has experience and I have adaptability. With me still being relatively new, I don’t really have my own play style yet and just adapt to complement his. Since he usually likes to stay back and snipe, I would defend him from enemies that got close.
Having finished the first Halo game, I see why people like them so much. It was challenging without ever seeming impossible. The only parts I got really frustrated with were the parts when we had to fly vehicles. I wasn’t very good at that!
While it wasn’t as story-driven as I tend to like, I’m still left wanting to find out what happens next. We are planning to play Halo Reach next, and I’ll write more about that. I guess it’s prequel so technically I won’t find out what happens next, but I will still get to learn more about the Halo universe and that’s almost as good! I think it will take us a lot longer to get through, so it will likely be a series of posts.
Since I usually play on a PC, I also had to get used to the XBox controller. I think I’ve finally mastered the buttons and don’t have to look at them to know where A, B, X, and Y are. I have also figured out that for whatever reason, I need to have the Y-axis inverted. My friend C does too, so I thought it was pretty normal. However, I started asking around and way more people play with the default controls! It’s gotten me wondering why some people play inverted and others don’t. Maybe it’s just like being left-handed. Let me know if you play default or inverted in the comments! Thanks for reading!
