Pumpkin and I have noticed that switching from Call of Duty 4 back to Halo 3 makes you feel like you just got hit by a Mastodon-sized tranq dart.
According to this Wikipedia article,
Most modern action games, including popular first person shooters such as Halo 3, run around 30 frames a second, while others, such as Call of Duty 4, run at 60 frames a second.”
Of course, I never know when to trust Wikipedia, but this explanation seems pretty plausible.
One’s brain does seem to adjust to the Halo 3 framerate after delivering a few teabags, but I now always feel the urge to make Master Queef sprint (one suspects that he has consumed too many Krispy Kremes….) just as my homeboy in COD 4 can.
Very odd–why does Master Chief have supreme basketball-dunking-ability, but he’s slower than your grandpa at family reunion flag football? Makes no damn sense.
At any rate, Bungie seems not to have taken full-advantage of the 360′s hardware, but I doubt I know what I’m talking about. As Pumpkin has noted, Bungie seems to be doing a lot of mopping up on itself to stop the hemorrhaging of gamers. Maybe there’s somthing they can do to fix the drunkass Master Chief phenomenon…
The more I think about it, the more COD 4 seems to rock. But something is still missing… More to come on this.
