We finished Halo 4 last night and were so excited to start Halo 5 only to find out that it doesn't support LAN play. There's a Halo 5 LAN server program you can download and run on a PC on your local network, but it doesn't support co-op play. I guess our Halo journey is over.
Almost done with Halo 4. We're on mission 8 of 10 and should be done with it tonight. Gameplay-wise, this is the best one so far. It is nice to see that the gameplay has improved with each game. I will say that the most fun thing to do in this series is drive the Scorpion tank and blow shit up. The vehicle levels have become my favorite part of the series.
The story, unsurprisingly, sucks like the rest of the games, but to be fair, my son and I are usually talking/yelling and not paying much attention to the details. After killing me multiple times, I finally booted his ass from the session when the option popped up on the screen. He came running into the living room saying "are you serious?". I couldn't stop laughing, so we started started the mission over from our last checkpoint.
I can't believe that we're on our 6th Halo game and we're still playing games made for the Xbox 360. We're both anxious to see how much better the gameplay and graphics are on Halo 5, which finally moves us into the Xbox One generation.
