Johnson, is that you!?

Posted by Village_Guy

Hot damn, 343 is certainly impressing me with what they squeezed out of that old 360 box.

Posted by zombie2011

I haven't been this excited for a game in a very very long time. RDR was probably the last game i was this hyped for.

Posted by ObsideonDarman

Man. I have never been this excited for a Halo game.

Animations look so damn good.

SKULLFACE!

On a more serious note, that's what I call art direction. Take notes Bioware.

You should play Double Dragon Neon.

I don't like the inner skull design, nor the lack of limb attachment. Hopefully, they will focus on providing a better story than Bungie ended up including in the games.

I thought that said Protheans at first.

Agreed. For me it's the bloody Tyrannosaurus arms. The disintegration effects sure are nice though.

Posted by solidlife

@Damolition: yeah same its nice and all but doesn't seem/feel "halo" enough lol.

Posted by Daneian

Pretty excited for this.

Posted by wh1terav3n

@solidlife: you should watch some of the multiplayer vids. Its pretty halo still. Changed just about the right amount to me based on their prerelease marketing.

This is quietly like, shaping up to be the best game of the year.

Stupid.

Posted by Maystack

So are the knights just little dudes in big armour? And those tiny arms are their real arms? I got confused.

I'm just happy to see a Suicide Girl model can reform herself to be a productive member of society. Such as a game developer!

Skulltface killah!!

Posted by papercut

sounds too much like prothreans

Edited by CircleNine

Looks pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see which new species they end up introducing throughout this series of games to be the next antagonists since the Forerunners were the only previous species that were mentioned at all that weren't part of the Covenant or the Flood.

@siaynoq: Glad to see that gamers can still make sexist quips about peoples worth at the drop of a hat.

You should feel like a piece of shit for making this comment.

Looking great so far.

Spectacular music.

Wow, "Prometheans". That's about the amount of creativity I came to expect from the Halo games.

"Guys, we have this revolutionary new concept that will surpise the shit out of everyone: another ancient alien race. How do we call it?"

"Uhh Mass Effect had the Protheans... and the games were pretty good, right? Also, there's this movie in theaters right now..."

"Approved! Next item on the list: we need a new look and I played Metroid Prime yesterday..."

Damn this looks good.

Edited by CircleNine

@dfsix999: The Mass Effect series sold well and got good review scores too so I guess they must be bottom of the barrel trash too. If you really want a deep and meaningful experience with a video what you've really got to do it play X-Blades. Sure, it sold like shit and got terrible reviews and was absolute trash of a game, but it's that really unique outsider perspective that gave it that really gave it a deeper meaning than you see with AAA title games with years of development, major studios, and a ridiculous amount of money behind them.

Stop being so fucking reactionary. You're not allowed to criticize one thing as being trash for the singular reason of being mainstream when the thing you like just as much is just as mainstream.

@CptBedlam: Their co-op mode is called Spartan Ops, needless to say 343 might not be the most creative when it comes to naming.

Not that it matters, the new enemies look like they'll be fun to go up against and Spartan Ops looks way better than multiplayer(which they're calling War Games btw).

The only worry I have about the Prometheans is the AI, Bungie enemy AI was great.

Cant believe it ... I am now more excited for Halo 4 :D

Posted by EuanDewar

I am excited for this video gaming experience on my console of choice.

Posted by yoshisaur

I think it's safe to say that 343 gives the impression that they know what they are doing. I'm hoping to see Halo 4 as one of my top games in 2012!

Posted by Feikken

Ah halo... so original... so... zzzzzz

Posted by DrewHughes

Experiencing something oddly similar to drowning whilst perusing the comments, the cynicism is so thick

Posted by Anupsis

How do we make enemies spawn? I know, how about they just warp in? CREATIVE 343

Edited by redgonzo

Really halo 4 the prometheans, I mean I'm not going to play you anyway so no fucks to give but pretty lame even for you.

Posted by GunstarRed

Everything about this game looks kinda wonderful. I get more and more excited with every video they put out.

Oh God, just shut up! If you don't like Halo why do you even bother post in the comments section of this vidoc? I have a Newsflash for ya, hating Halo doesn't make you look cool anymore. This isn't 2007 anymore, so if you don't like the game go bugger off with the next Call of Duty or something. This is just inflammatory shit posting, can't we have one Halo vidoc without this kind of bullshit?

Anyway, the new art and enemy designs look amazing. 343 are outdoing everything Bungie done with the franchise at this point. Day one purchase for me.

@Solarisala: I didn't know only positive comments are allowed for everthing Halo.

I was just pointing out in a lighthearted way that, in my opinion, the Halo games are creatively bankrupt and the design and name of their latest ancient alien race is just more proof of that. It's just lazy. Given the resources (time, money, people) available to them, I would expect them to come up with something more original.

I never said it won't be a good game, btw. So calm down.

Posted by allworkandlowpay

@CptBedlam: How dare they use something from ancient Greek mythology to name a character design. No game would ever do that!

I'm not asking for there to be only positive comments for Halo. Just making lazy ass comments about the design without any validation is basically accepted trolling. A total norm when it comes to shitposting popular game franchises like Halo. I hate Call of Duty, but I don't go around shitposting every Call of Duty: Black Ops II related video.

Dude, I know were the name originates from but this is a "the latest thing" issue. Why would you pile on with that after other games (and movies) already exhausted the concept lately? Come up with something better, turn to other mythologies. It's not that hard to find interesting inspirations but they went the laziest route (Protoss, Protheans, Prometheans...).

Why would you come up with yet another ancient alien race that looks like glowing robotic insects and even name it similarly? All this shit starts to look and sound the same.

Hey, let's hope this isn't a spoiler but I bet it turns out the Prometheans are not monsters but really wise and honorable guys.

If you think this shit is original or creative I feel sorry for you. Enjoy your video game, champ

@Feikken: You used ellipses and zzzz to express your disinterest in a game. How much can you really know about originality and creativity?

i agree, halo sucks shit and this game just looks like another generic halo game. the new enemies look retarded, like rejected bionicle figures. the only people who are looking forward to this are dumb jocks and twelve year-old kids. halo is the most overrated franchise ever made, next to call of duty. and before any of you halo bois use sales figures and high scored reviews to justify it, they mean nothing. michael bay movies make millions at the box office and critics are being payed to give high scores.

in others words, halo is for idiots with no taste or standards in video games.

You're gonna do real well here sport.

REAL well.

This game is looking rad. Prometheans seems a little lazy but whatever. This game's been in development for a while I'm sure they had the name in mind before the movie ever came out.

For your information Promethean is a reference to Prometheus from Greek mythology. Furthermore, the concept of "Prometheans" in Halo was was created by Bungie in early 2007 (predating Mass Effect's release). Finally, the reason why the game resembles the Metroid Prime trilogy is because two senior designers from that trilogy are working on Halo 4. Get your facts right Jackass.

god giantbomb has turned into a bunch of insufferable gaming hipsters.

if you dont like halo, thats fine, dont shittalk people who do like it, the fuck is your problem?
