Fuck Avatar, this is the 2010 Titanic.

Not as good as the Halo 3 live action trailer, but not bad. 

Posted by buckybit

Nice Gears of War 3 trailer... or, wait! Was this Battlefield 2242? ... or wha? - don't mix up the franchises in the title, Duders. Self-fulfilling P R O P H E C Y !!

Posted by buckybit

... on the other hand, if this really IS Halo, this confirms a Bombing Run UT MP mode, right? Right??

Im pretty sure I saw this as a TV commercial at least a week ago, maybe even longer.

@Raven_Sword: Universal and Fox were co-financing the film. Fox was set to release it in North America and Universal releasing it worldwide. The budget was $145 million, Fox and Universal pulled out apparently after they failed to get Microsoft and the filmmakers to reduce their cut of the earnings. There were rumors that it would start production again with Microsoft possibly financing the whole thing but that never surfaced and Neill Blomkamp got fed up with waiting, swore off working on anything Halo-related and went on to make District 9. 
 
So basically Studio Politics killed the Halo movie and it has not recovered yet, but Microsoft is obviously happy to spend a decent amount of money on these commercials.

How nice of them to leave the back door open and completely unguarded so one soldier can take out their entire ship with an egg.

Still a cool trailer, even thou I've seen it already.

It's too bad that a majority of Halo's fanbase doesn't care about the lore...

@buckybit: My most anticipated 2011 game is "Check Out This New Trailer"
Posted by Longevitous

Good looking trailer. Why don't they make Halo games that look thematically like this instead of the cartoony colorful cap gun crap. They made Master Chief so bad ass in the novels yet everything in the games just don't live up to the fiction. I'll pass on the games and just keep reading.

Love how the best thing about Halo games has been these real life marketing videos they do. The actual look of Halo in-game, and the gameplay has always been pretty antiquated, but these trailers are awesome. Maybe if they actually gave the game this much TLC, it would actually be... You know... Good.
 
Yet despite all that, people still regularly lose their collective shit any time a Halo game comes out. Which is absolutely baffling... I love when the Giantbomb guys talk about Halo games on the podcasts. It usually just consists of one saying "Yo, you guys think it'll be any good?" and then another person saying "Yo, it's Halo. Does it even matter? It could be a turd in a box and millions of people would still buy it." That pretty much sums up the Halo franchise.

As somebody that has never really liked a Halo game, that was pretty awesome.

This!
Also, and I know I'm gonna get a LOT of hate, but I think that Halo takes itself too seriously for its own good...

I think it's more look like action movie seriousness where they know what they are doing and although it seems serious it isn't.

Agreed. The Halo 3 commercial with the old man  and the museum one were ridiculously melodramatic. This live action short would have been better without the somber music, like those Halo 3 live action shorts. It's trying to be emotional, but you know in the actual game you'll be running over high pitched grunts in a warthog or something.

Anyways, can't believe Reach is so close! Going to be incredible - FPS of the forever.
Posted by commandercup

Freaking epic, sure the game probably won't be so emotional or dramatic, but still... This reminds me of that Halo 3 commercial which had Raindrop Prelude as the music, that was epic as well.

He drives a hybrid car too.
Posted by fillmoejoe

Oh it's the trailer my Xbox plays automatically.
 
Actually I'm pretty excited for Reach and this is a pretty good trailer but they just don't seem to live up to ones from Halo 3.

They should stop making games and just make trailers since the games never live up to them anyway

Posted by Springfart

omg guys, imagine if the halo movie looked like this, and not like every other videogame movie made.

Yeah, I mean vibrant colors?  Who needs that?  Didn't Bungie get the memo that all games are to be desaturated or sepia tone?   
 
A robust physics engine?  Bah,all you need are a few scripted explosions to give the appearance of chaos. 
 
Dynamic AI?  Everyone knows all you need are endlessly spawning enemies.
 
Drivable vehicles and sandbox combat?  Let's just stick with on-rails vehicle set-pieces and linear corridors, thanks. 
 
Halo is just so generic.  You don't see Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Medal of Honor doing this tired sci-fi shooter thing any more.  They're all about being UNIQUE.
 
Yeah, and why would the guys want to talk about Halo on the bombcast when there are such ground-breaking games like Starcraft and Mortal Kombat to get excited about?  I mean that's the future, right THERE!  How could Jeff get excited about the changes in Forge or matchmaking or Bungie.net functionality? I mean it's not like you can SHOOT DOWN UAVs or anything, you know.... exciting like that.
 
I just hit my snotty-retort quota for the week in one post.  I'm sorry, but I had to let off some steam.  Don't take any of this too personally.  In fact, I really like CoD and Battlefield.  People who seem to despise Halo always come across as someone who has never actually played it.

Further proof that the Halo movie needs to be made...it couldn't hurt at this point.

sorry dudes, I can't hear your ranting over Sci-Fi and realism BS with my recon helmet on :D

Posted by Toxin066

Oh. It's the trailer that plays every fifteen minutes on ESPN. Not that I mind. It's a pretty cool trailer.

Posted by Milkman

That was kind of goofy looking to be honest.

Posted by JiuJitsuka85

Why don't they implement the trailer idea's into the actual game. Like flying sideways in a barrelroll:P.
If the game would take the art direction from the trailers it would be much cool,er grittier. Halo remains far to cartoony.

Isn't that basically any big game franchise now?  That's why they build up a brand and it's recognition.  It could be Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Gears, Battlefield, anything Blizzard or Valve, or anything really.  People like things and more of that thing.

I could say that "Bungie needs to stop making games and start making movies", but the people who made this trailer might not even be working at Bungie. 
I'm just gonna say, whoever made this trailer needs to make a movie. Now.

@Hashbrowns: I love you... up until you dissed other great games. =P 
 
I totally understand why you did it though. Halo haters make me vent like that on occasion too. I can never understand why a series that consistently pushes the bar and does things differently gets so much hatred. Colors, people!  Remember those? That alone should garner some excitement, not to mention the incredible technical feats Bungie has managed.  
 
I mean, Forge World! Do you think any other console FPS developer would allow players that much freedom to create content? Or even the freedom to move the camera around freely in an open 3D space? A studio has to pretty damn confident in their art assets to allow players to just look around in ever nook and cranny like that. 
 
So let's hear it. I want a coherent argument against the Halo franchise. Nothing subjective either. None of this "it's too cartoony" or "too many kids on Xbox Live" bullshit. Actual subjective reasons why Halo "sucks." I'll wait...
