"Wtf, are they still using the same lame ass 2008 engine? And is that another silent protagonist? And WTF EVER HAPPENED TO MASTER CHIEF?? despite my complaints i will give you my moneyz for this bungie "

Even though that looks significantly better than the Halo 3 engine, also who said that that particular planet was Reach there is more than one in fall of reach, and if it is Reach, Chief was in space destroying a ships nav grid so the covenant don't find earth, by the time he does that the Battle for Reach is over and then Halo 1 starts.

Kind of like the direction they're going with the inclusion of more SPARTANs; makes it seem like a more mature version of Power Rangers. And I loved Power Rangers.

@BiplaneMan:
 Becase Bungie hasn't proved they can do it any other way.  I am assuming this will be "just another Halo", so therefore I have ZERO interest in this garbage.
Posted by britxmenyuan

well, i actually love this teaser, but until i can see some new stuff in the halo series, i won't hold my breath for this one.

Edited by darkjester74

For some reason, the impression I got was its a sequel to ODST.  I know that's not what it is, but I couldn't shake the feeling I was looking at ODST 2.  /shrug
 
Visually it looks fine, looks to have some squad elements.  Ill probably check it out, but its nothing to get bent out of shape over, IMO.

Those outfits give me a Tokkei Winspector vibe.

I know right. Just like God of War 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4....just more of the same old garbage. Good job, man! Tell it like it is!

I am a big halo and Xbox fan, but even I thought that this trailer was meh.

Posted by Hoshnasi

So help me out here, does Reach happen before, during or after Halo 1-3? 
 
From what I understood of the lore/canon MC was the last spartan, so this would mean it would be BEFORE Halo 1?
 
Something about releasing a prequel game after a long running series can only go one of two ways.  
 

  1. Awesome new game mechanics makes fans say "WTF! This is in the past, why didn't MC get this gun?"  and resent the new stuff.
  2. Shitty nothing changed and boring story makes fans say: "Wow, the passed sucked why did I buy this?"

I like halo but the trailer isn't anything special

Dude "Spartan's never die they're just missing in action", and this does take place before the other Halo games

The trailer wasn't wowing me in particular, but I have faith in Bungie.

Edited by MindChamber

Loved the cinematics,
Nice nod to gears of war with the Bulky, LED laced, Helmet less suits.
 
 lets just hope the actual gameplay and ingame graphics measure up, because Im really, really tired of Halo2 geometry in 60 dollar games.

Who'd like to lay odds as to whether the "Lieutenant" is Sierra 117?

Posted by SammydesinasNL

If the game is more immersive/movie like as in the trailer I'd very much be interested in it.

Giantbomb grows and grows everyday and right now 99% of its users are pretty much awesome. i won't lie, i'd sleep with them all. i'd even play the catcher for some of them. but at some point Giantbomb is gonna grow so many members that comments like 
"you retards. you fanboys suck Halo dick, faggots."
are gonna start showin up.
 "i know you fanboys jizzed" is the start of that transition. i'll give you $5 if you never say "fanboy" again.

I guess I'm confused why there's always this snide "same old Halo" mentality; as though a game that plays like Halo is something to be avoided.  Halo CE was an enormous success BECAUSE of how it played.  The "golden triangle" of weapons, grenades and melee attacks are core to the reason why Halo is so popular. 
 
The Call of Duty franchise plays much the same way as it always has, and that's also a GOOD thing.  Indeed, many changes Call of Duty has seen over the years are mostly derived FROM Halo such as the popularization of a dedicated grenade button and regenerating health. 
 
But there's a strange lack of people decrying MW2 for being "same old CoD".  I love both franchises, and I'm really at a loss as to why a fan of one would truly HATE the other.  That really goes for any of the major shooter franchises.  Can you prefer one over the other?  Of course.  But to HATE one and LOVE the other?  That's just a little weird.

So...It's Halo.
 
I'm down with that.

Posted by Ekkers

I hope there's fall damage. Also why am I attracted to that very manly female spartan?

@Ubiquitous: I think the last few years have proven the exact opposite, but it's nice to dream.

Somebody got Halo in my Gears of War!

Posted by Destroyeron

I know it won't come to PC, so I can't get excited about this.

Diss Halo all you want, but never diss Marty's music. Never.

Yea, it was extremely uneventful. Though, it was never meant to be a trailer though. Look at it like Uncharted 2's Premiere at the VGAs. As with then, this is merely an early look at a snippet of the Opening cutscene. 
 
Hope Bungie manages to convey the shit that happened on Reach. That's what will make or break this game.
Posted by El_Rickhead

it is not ok that im lookin forward to this, Bungie this is for you;
Stop makin frikkin Halo games dammit!

I feel the same way. If the game ends up centred around large scale team combat, I'll be pretty happy.

 It reminds me of a really bad action movie. Not so much epic, but trying too hard.

You have obviously not seen a lot of bad action movies.

More for his work in general, not this song specifically.  @GioVANNI said:

Yeah, me too.  I downloaded ALL of the Halo soundtracks (7 cds of O'Donnell, 2 of Rippy), and listen to them on a regular basis.  His music ads so much to the games.

I've seen plenty. The music in Halo 3 is fine, this is weak.
Posted by Vigorousjammer

woo! Spartan crew! it's like the whole crew from ODST except 100x more badass
 
This looks like it's gonna be the best Halo game since the first one.

Posted by Phonics

This looks like shit. Why do people like halo again?

Posted by ProfessorEss

Since so few developers seem capable of making quality 4 player co-op campaigns I'm always happy to see a new Halo on the way.
 
I enjoy most of the "triple A" shooters (frankly I enjoy most games in general) but I can't understand how or why these developers can't figure out 4 player co-op.
 
(ps - The "it didn't fit our style of gameplay" excuse holds zero water for me.)

Ghost looks like a fucking dumbass. SKULLS are NOT intimidating OR badass.  
 
Sparthan with a skull looks like a fucking tool too.

I can't wait to play the multiplayer beta for that game.

Posted by Rewcastle

Oh snap - looks like master chief is getting ready to kick some ass... again 
So whats this gonna be? Halo with added skull masks? I wanna play as that other guy in the video, not master chief. The futuristic "ghost". Hell yeah. Ahhhh whats the point. People will end up spending half the game wondering if he is Sargent Johnson then he'll get burned alive towards the end..
