That's pretty much how it all went down, Alex.
Someone needs to make a mod for Halo: CE PC that puts that kid's head on the Master Chief's body.
I like this kind of stuff, manages to give halo fans Huge Hard Ons and still promote halo.
Was that a Wilhelm scream at :26 seconds?! WHAT?!
Has anybody been keeping up with the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn live action web series? Its up to ep 3 and its been really good so far.
Never been a fan of Halo, but this was kinda awesome.
So did that alien give Master Chief a Ghost Rider Penance Stare?
Don't look in there. That's...wrong
So his mom is the half naked Cortana??? Thats kinda awkward.
...or is it?
They should never show the Chief's face , 343 said they aren't ready to do it wich is great.
See, if that happened to me, I'd be real hesitant about working for my kidnappers...
I hope the next MS console will have backwards compatibility because if it doesn't then I'm probably not going to end up playing this game.
You never use your right hand to throw a grenade in Halo, must be fake.
But seriously, always love this stuff for Halo.
I cant be the only one who absolutely loves all of the live action halo stuff....
like the forward unto dawn stuf....so good
This was produced by David Fincher. I'm a fan.
Thats not what John or Halsey looked like at all...We've seen Halsey in Reach and Cortana in...everything. That actress didnt look like either.
And John was a ginger.
Anyone else here catch the ending to this game when it was leaked on YouTube?
@AndrewBeardsley: I love all of the live action Halo stuff as well, all very well done. So, what I want to know is why MS/Bungie/343 can't get it together and put out something bigger then these shorts. Wouldn't have to be a movie (would be cool), could be something like a tv show.
Master Chief IS the ancient evil? BWAAAAAAAAARM!
A Peter Jackson work in progress.
Turns out he's a buff white guy with a shaved head. Well that solves that mystery!
I never liked playing Halo, But after seeing this I kinda want a Halo movie.
I love all these live action trailers, it's inspired me to start a halo larping community on the westcoast. We normally do 40 man battles (20 vs 20), typically in the western BC area. Message me if you're interested.
So much better than the one from Halo Reach where the candidate is just injected. Captures that horrific science/morality from Fall of Reach nicely. Didn't even need the parts with the Chief and the Prometheans.
Why's he gotta just jump down and beat their asses? Maybe he could talk to them, negotiate a lasting peace for the galaxy.
Maybe just be like, "Hey guys, where's the pool?" Maybe they would tell him.
WHAT A TWIST!
James and the Giant Peach anyone....?
Not the whole face, at least...
@RainbowCarnage: @RainbowCarnage said:
I think the woman calling out to John is actually Catherine Halsey. Cortana being intercut with her would make sense as her personality is based around Dr. Halsey.
@Captain_Felafel: I heard it, too. That was totally the Wilhelm Scream.
Yeah thats all there is to him. Yep this didn't show anything else.
This certainly humanizes him a lot more.
I see the Fincher in this.
So what the fuck, does Microsoft PR and Microsoft Games even _discuss_ the thematic consistency between their material?
Halo has been ridiculous sci-fi fluff since day one, and Halo 4 looks like a saturday morning cartoon show. What the shit is up with this pathos-laden inconsequential idiocy?
Also, wilhelm scream. lal.
@Radio_Resistance: True, although the Reach Spartans were newer and were more 'mass produced' whereas John et al were all Gen 1 Spartans, hence the more brutal enhancements. (I guess?)
@DanTheGamer32 You are right. The Reach Spartans were part of the Spartan-III program. John was a Spartan-II (not TECHNICALLY generation one, but the ORION program was only retroactively the Spartan-I program, so yeah, First Gen Spartans). The massive amounts of incisions are from the ceramic bone grafts to basically Wolverine them up and make it nigh-impossible to break. Spartan-III just had various injections, muscle augmentations and brain chemistry conditioning, none off the bone stuff.
Also, that woman isn't Halsey. That's John's actual mom. You know. The one he was kidnapped from and replaced with a flash-grown clone that died within six months. That's what that scene after it is.
All of the Spartan-IIs were selected from an ideal genetic template, kidnapped, cloned and the clones were given back to the parents. And because they were clones, all of the clones developed awful health problems, leaving the parents to be told that they were genetic and congenital. This last part is brought up near the end of the Glasslands novel and continued in The Thursday War.
Actually, for the clone part, it's only very statistically likely that John's clone died. There was a small chance of survival.
However, the evil clone of Master Chief would be the dumbest plot twist imaginable.
@Suribot: Jorge-052 was Spartan II, that's why he was slightly bigger and stronger, also why he called Halsey "mum".
If you had taken the time to read the fuckin' books, Don, you would know that that is precisely what happened.
JEEZ. It's like you people don't even know anything.
I'd much rather watch that film, than play that game any day of the week.
Why is the ancient stuff always evil? Why don't ancient beings awake that are really boring, or slightly amusing?
My thought exactly!
@D_Mac: Well, yes. They specify that in-game and in the manual. It's also why Halsey called him by name.
