And I thought no-one would see that!

I love halo trailers, gets me all spine-tingly, especially seeing names like carver and co. up on the screen in the background.

Notice the strange mark underneath the pistol clip @ 0:21

That was really dumb. Stern ol' Mr. General says it how it is!

I always find these live action trailers silly.

Posted by piropeople13

I don't even like the Halo games but I am a sucker for their live action shorts.

Posted by LiquidSwords

Too bad the only good thing about Halo are the trailers.

I was looking at that dude's ribbons thinking they were lazy to make them all black, but then I remembered the whole Onyx ribbon thing in Halo: Reach and I was kind of floored by that attention to detail. I think they even have the little symbols on them. Somebody in wardrobe/props deserves a raise.

I'd like to know how Arlo Givens managed to get to such a high rank in the USNC.

Posted by Seraphim2150

@Lingxor: Probably stole it

Heroes never die in Halo, they respawn!

Posted by Jerr

Does anyone else think Halo takes itself a bit too seriously sometimes? It's weird to see this stuff as promo for a game that is ostensibly about a green supersoldier dude shooting blue blooded aliens. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan.

Posted by JCGamer

@Greenshoes: I was thinking the same thing.

I'm so into the Halo Universe that I just eat stuff like this up. That actor friggin' brang it for this commercial. I'm sure I've seen him in movies before but I can't place him right now.

I like how Avery J. Johnson's name shows on the screen behind as a hero. It's kind of funny how big a role he has played in the Halo fiction now after that funny death scene he has in the legendary ending of Combat Evolved. In the novels, he's the first soldier to ever kill a Covenant. He was on Harvest when they started to glass it. Yeah, he does some pretty bad ass Black Ops stuff in Contact Harvest.

Halo has the most amazing trailers. Always gives me chills.

But the movie The Sandlot told me first that heroes will always be remembered, but legends never die...

My thoughts exactly.

Excuse me while I talk about Halo plot here. Keep in mind I haven't played one since ODST.

He seems to be speaking after the events of Halo 3, but talks about the War with the convent as if it's still happening. So, Halo 4, covenant confirmed?

Posted by Kingloo

I feel like these live-action Halo trailers represent Microsoft making a Halo film at a glacial pace. Every new trailer requires just a bit more production design, just a bit more finessing of vibe and tone and atmosphere.

Halo 3 is the most current game in the timeline, everything he mentioned took place before/sort of during Halo 3.

It could be possible that the Brutes continue to fight, even now with the Sanghelli on the human's side. That being said, I sure as fuck don't WANT halo 4 to just have the same old enemies... It probably will

No, but it's safe to say Elites may play a role.

WRONG KID DIED!

He can play intense military man all he wants but all I saw was Dewey Cox's father from Walk Hard.

Oh Yeah!! That's where he's from. I shamelessly really like that movie, by the way. It's hilarious

Posted by Tebbit

Well great, but... why? It seems kinda self-serious and self-important, considering this is a re-release of a known quantity. It was a cool trailer though.

Well Halo is one of the biggest gaming franchises ever and they've had similar trailers before. I'd think they have a goddamn huge marketing budget.

Posted by NathHaw

Kinda cool. Been better w/o the close-up shot.

Another Halo, another overly self-serious trailer that would be effective and emotional if it was for something with multiplayer that wasn't plagued with socially inept assholes, and its enemy faction wasn't filled largely by midgets running around with Looney Toons-style voices....

Arlo Givens? Raylan's daddy?! He's gonna have every one of those soldiers running an oxycontin scam.

The Bungie marketing team once again proves themselves more capable than the entire writing staff.

Agreed! Thank you for saying it.

ACTUALLY Heroes die. Legends endure.

If by the best you mean the silliest and least relevant to the product, yes. The best.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

Maybe it's the shift from Bungie to 343 but something about this gave me a real C&C Red Alert vibe.

Posted by Harkat

I like how they put a screen with animations there to distract the marines from his riveting speech.

The population of Xbox Live deserves every diss it gets, but be fair to the Grunts, it's hard to sound menacing when you breathe a mixture of methane and helium 24/7.

I really don't need close ups of that guys face.
