Actually Army of Two did it first and I'm incredibly certain someone came up with the idea of a SKULL MASK long before that.
 
Modern Warfare did not invent the wheel

I made a skull mask skin for the original Counter-Strike.  Does that count?  Am I awesome now?

Even me, who is 80 years old according to the age gate selection, wants to play this game.

lol @ the Halo is becoming Guitar Hero comment. Look at Mario, Call of Duty. Thanks.

Hopefully the game will look better then this trailer... Now that i think about it, thats a Halo game a year! I figured the new Gears would be 2010 and this game 2011.

" Looks like the art direction is going towards Gears of War. I hope it gets a more "realistic" and ballistic feel. The whole pew pew lazerguns appeal has worn of IMHO. "
I hope so. I didn't really like the bunny jumping, the smoothness of walking around and the lack of a sprint/roadie button. *shrugs*

I think the skull helmet is a shout out to Infinity Ward (they are pretty good friends I hear).  
 
But whats with the Elite at the end I never knew they had teeth!  From what I remember they only had a gaping hole underneath their 4 mouth pieces...  Looks kinda scary.  But I'm very happy they are not fighting Brutes in this one.  I always liked the elites better as enemies. 
 
And if anyone has read Halo: Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund they should be excited.  That book was amazing.  
 
117? 

Posted by dagas

Looking forward to it. The Fall of Reach was one of the better books. Although it's kind of hard to feel pumped by the music anymore. ODST at least had a very different style, this feels like old school "generic epic music" again, at least in the trailer.

The Spartans Look even more Dangerous. With there new looks 

Some one new

Spartan 259 & 320

Insert sweeping comment here about the game based upon one trailer.........

Posted by Ninja

Awesome! Im definately going to get this just because ten more minutes of Halo story would be amazing like always!

Posted by Capum15

Awesome.

Posted by Lingxor

I really hope that Bungie takes some risks with this one. Releasing the same old Halo would obviously make them $ but I'd like to think that they're better than that.

Posted by Darksideshadow

That is ghost's great great (insert correct amount of great) grand son.   
 Why would that be impossible?  
 
Also Halo games almost always look amazing untill you play them. Then they look pretty good.

Reach is a pretty cool guy, eH kills aleins and doesnt afraid of anything

@Shadow:Us 80 year old gamers are hard to come by.
Posted by Parsnip

Well, it looks like they at least improved the old tech considerably. The environments look kind of crappy, but character animation and detail is a lot better than Halo 3 or ODST.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Posted by Afroman269

Nice Ghost rip off. Other than that, there isn't much to go on from this so I'll just wait for so some gameplay footage.

You sayed it, SuperJoe.

Halo, Call of Duty and Guitar Hero share the fact that aside from minor technical modifications and small mechanical changes (aside from Halo's dual-wielding), they are functionally the same game each sequel. 
 
At least Mario adds new mechanics each game that actually alter gameplay significantly! 
 
Ok, so it's definitely not at GH levels of selling it's body to the streets, but in terms of evolution Halo and GH are shockingly similar.

I wonder If i should add that big spartan the one with the 52 on his armor. His name was George I guess I should add him  

Posted by GaZZuM

Couldn't care less.

Posted by Spacetrucking

You know whats the best thing about this trailer ? 
 
Martin O'Donnell's new theme!

Posted by cheeriokilla

How corny was that? "Spartans never die, they're only MIA" ahhahahahahahaha what a FAIL dialogue.

The skull helmet and the woman's face, that was scary stuff.
Posted by Xander

Not much new is being shown here.  I thought the Elite at the end was a bit silly.  We've killed millions of him by now; why is that exciting?

Gameplay preview

 


Posted by spiritdave

Did I miss something?  I saw no in game footage.  Only cut scene stuff.  Sure, it was nice, but I wanna see the in game!

Posted by stinky

 
if its heavy single player/story based then i will be looking forward to it, if its main thing is mulitplayer then i'll pass.

Posted by Reverseface

Nice way of ripping off the character of Ghost in your trailer bungie.

Posted by Southgrove

Meh.

Posted by BiplaneMan

Why is everyone assuming that this will be the same old Halo? We haven't even seen gameplay yet!

Edited by crusnchill

Bungie PR say's: "Hey guys! Guess what! We're going for 'new' more edgy angle of Halo. 
 
I reply: "That's 'never' been done before."

Again, ODST had a character with a skull painted on his helmet, and the general idea of a skull helmet/mask goes way back.

I just can't get excited about Halo games.  They always seem to pale in comparison to every other FPS on the market.  Also, this trailer is snoozeball.

Posted by TheIronYuppie

Looks pretty sweet

Posted by DukeTogo

Painting a skull on a visor is pretty stupid.

Posted by FireBurger

Yeah, it's Halo...

Posted by Jiquk

 Damn looks like i actually have a reason to own an xbox again.

Posted by Noitu

Does anyone actually know that this is a prequel? I mean, it's a direct prequel to Halo 1. If anything, I would expect the awesome gun play that game had. But, let's not say anything yet, so I don't get proven wrong and the last bit of faith I had in Halo gets demolished.

"Looks totally Halo.   The Ghost rip-off is just painful though, I mean seriously? "


What you talking about? nothing looks like a ghost in that. 
 
On another note that was epic and apparently is was done using the in-game engine. 
 
EDIT: sorry just noticed the spartan with the skull on his helmet.

Actually it was a really nice continuity nod. SPARTANs are always listed as MIA so as not to bring down troop moral.
Posted by Nemesis

Trailer sucked. Hopefully it will be better than: Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo: ODST, Halo Wars, Halo Cart racing, Halo Cart racing 2, Halo party, Halo RPG, Halo bros, Super Halo Bros, Halopoly, Halo the Movie the book the game, Master Chief cooking adventures, Halo Cooking, Master Chief and Marcus Fenix at the Olympic games, New Halo bros, Old Halo bros, etc....
 
I think I missed about 40 more games. Too many to list.

Posted by InsanePotato

They should've gone with the nudity with marilyn manson cranking in the background aproach, i hear that's popular nowadays.
 
Now i like halo and I like how the graphics are shaping up for this but seriously, that was a bit of a snoozer trailer.

Posted by Agent47CSim2

Here come all the COD fanboys saying i's a rip off of MW2

Posted by MAN_FLANNEL

 Yup.
