First of all, Reach looks awesome. Second, his glasses are pretty cool. Third, i can't wait for the beta.

" is it just me, or does is it seem like this guy's basically saying, "elites are way better than spartans"?  I mean, seriously, it seems like the balancing between elites and spartans is completely fucked.  They move faster, completely regen health, AND regen shields faster than spartans...meanwhile spartans are sluggishly walking around, picking up fucking health packs. "

what they've said is that Spartans will usually have better positioning (like top of hill in Generator Defense) and usually have to defend, which is easier than attacking. 
edit- they're also bigger, so they're easier to snipe.

Luke Smith is disgusting. He was a Halo fanboy disguised as a game writer and because he jerked-off on everything Halo related, he gets a job there. Guy has no credibility at all (never did) was just another PR guy for Microsoft. I would like to see him defend them now going to Activision.
 
Of course, I can't blame him since he took the money, but that doesn't mean that he isn't a hypocritical douche who isn't funny at all.
 
And of course the Halo fanboys come out in spades.

@Lambert: I hope that's a joke, especially the last line.

@Lambert: not that I 100% disagree, especially about Luke coming off as a douche... but the thing that got him noticed was an in depth essay about all of the things that was wrong with Halo 2, so he certainly wasn't the kind to argue that the franchise has no faults, also he was the news guy at 1up, he wasn't in editorial (i.e. reviews) so his fanboyism wasn't really much of an issue

I don't understand how he comes off as a douche.  He was just talking about the game he's supposed to talk about.  Does his voice sound like the dude who bullied you in high school or what? 
 
Edit:  Oook right at the end I understand what you're talking about, although he just seems like more of a failed attempt at being funny rather than a douche.

I just wanna put this out there, all the old 1up Yours guys were unfunny douches, but that's why I loved listening to them. :) 
 
edit: Also, his glasses look pretty pimp, I'd like to get a pair of those.

I didn't know Luke Smith was such a divisive character.  I think he's a funny dude. 
 
Halo Reach looks amazing.  I'm going to be all over this beta.

Posted by WiqidBritt

hmm, interesting that they went back to hitscan for the bullet weapons, I guess Halo really isn't the kind of game where you have time to worry about leading your targets. Battlefield it ain't

Posted by twelve1784
@WiqidBritt: The sniper rifle is the only weapon where I'd prefer it not to be hitscan, it just felt right having to lead a tiny bit while sniping and made for some crazy videos.

Luke Smith looks weird without a beard. Still, an entertaining interview, as expected.

Posted by DragonNinja789

Luke is talking so fast that it's making him sweat.

Edited by MaddProdigy

YES scan hits, omg anyone good at this game is going to tear up face with the new battle rifle
 
Edit: SOOOO STOKED
I have yet to play the beta, but damn, I'm willing to go out on a limb here and say the multiplayer online crown has been re claimed from Modern Warfare 2. Yet to see, but damn.

Luke Smith for Prez ... I love that guy.

Posted by ip007

Why didn't I see Luke much when Halo 3 was being developed. Awesome guy! Love him on Bungie's own podcasts.

Weird without a beard would be an excellent indie band name.

Woo, more Halo-ness.

Edited by buckybit

F*K me! It's Luke "What the fuck?!" Smith, my iligit son ! The Scarab Lord was stolen from the Internets by Bungie. I am still grumpy about that. Halo Forums are no challenge for a "The Economist" reader. The end of that video although is pretty funny:  Really? 

Hey, come over to my world, on the PC side, and I will still teach you about Muliplayer Deathmatch UT-Style. Oh, these console button mashing auto-aiming kids in their jammies these days. ha, ha...

It's the new in thing, instead of getting stiff pr guys that talk like they are reciting a script to shill a product you get overzealous 'reviewers' that will talk like gamers... while reading from a script.

Luke Smith talks like a gamer because he is a gamer. The man's always loved Halo, and that's what Bungie needs: People with a passion to drive their studio forward. 
 
Y'all are tools.
Posted by PXAbstraction

Yep, Luke Smith is still a douche.  An overrated personality such as his is ideal for an overrated series like Halo though.

Posted by Agent47CSim2

Luke's awesome and Brad too... can't forget about Brad.

Posted by drumpsycho89

man this game looks sooooooo fucking badass!!!! Bungie really looks like they have gone all out for this one!!!!!

Game "design" does not require a formal education, only a knowledge of what makes a game work. Reviewing more than qualifies someone to design. Same with art design. Many contract employees handle production while leads guide programmers and artists toward an end result.

Luke still awesome, confirmed
