I'm using astros. But my pair have been fucked for a while. I have to use the integrated mic on them, as the long mic (?) has internal damage. And the internal mic keeps flipping over and rubbing on my shirt, so I use a fucking peg to keep if facing upwards. I'm also pretty sure that the amp that I run input and output through messes shit up too; when I'm on my desktop, I have to use splitters for the input to avoid sending it through the amp as it makes it much quieter.
I suppose with some extra wires I could buy the adapter you're talking about to bypass the amp for input. I'll investigate.
hope you made sense of that, i'm terrible at explaining tech stuff
I think Gametrailers review was pretty solid for Halo 4.
An annoyance story wise:
I find it a bit annoying that the opening scene (impressive as the human animations and design were) was never resolved or brought up again. I was expecting something to tie with it. Also don't know why that dude in the shadows, first stated that Chief was dead, then says "Spartans never die". Very disjointed writing.
That Dr lady who resembles Chakwas should have popped up again.

"Spartan's never die" is the saying for them in-universe. Even if they know for a FACT that a Spartan is dead, they're all listed as "MIA" as a kind of propaganda thing about them being invincible super soldiers. Mister Chaff is believed to be actually dead at the end of Halo 3. Dunno how that pans out for Halo 4 yet, but yeah.
I think that was less about Halo 4 and more as an establishing scene for the new "trilogy". Showing that it will be more focused on the Chief as a person/soldier and his place in the scheme of human affairs than the previous titles were rather than super soldier badass killing aliens. As Clownbaby said "Spartans Never Die" is a Halo universe thing, it's also kind of his way of being a smartass. Chakwas was saying he's listed as MIA so don't talk about John like he is dead, and he's saying "they're all listed as MIA". I think what the scene is showing is the military/moral fallout post covenant/flood now that the political side of the military can get a foothold in the aftermath and restructuring phase. Chakwas' motives are called into question and by proxy her creations and their danger/importance to humanity and the military
I enjoyed it, though there's a lot of holes and areas that could use a lot more fleshing out considering how half the basis of the campaign was a wild curve ball even for a fan of the books. It came off as poorly planned in order to fabricate an excuse for more Halo games.
