@big_jon: HalOld?

Posted by ichthy

Sure looks like some Halo, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

i like the new armor

As a huge Halo 3 fan, i'm not sure if I want this.

Edited by CookieMonster

Ah. These are the changes I want. Lets hope that the campaign is actually fun to play this time round.

Finish the fight... again!

I really wish 343 would scratch "intensely personal ViDoc" off the Bungie playbook... They come off as self-important shills and I was really hoping that would stay behind w/ Bungie.

That's halo right there...
 
Maybe this time there will be characters in it instead of objectives with faces.

man i haven't played halo in forever. what are they even doing with this series anymore

Is Master Chief really that good of a character? I liked fact that Halo Reach tried to move away from him and bring some new faces to the game.

Posted by InfamousBIG

Hey, so I heard they're making a fourth Halo game.

Posted by EndrzGame

Looks great! So excited about a new Halo.

I felt the original 3 books did a good job of fleshing him out as a character, and not just a guy in a suit. Of course that also was brought forth through his interactions with the spartans in his team from when they started. It sounded like they wanted to try to bring some of that into this new game.

I am so fucking hyped right now! Watching that trailer had the same feeling that I got when Halo 2 was hitting. The look is slick and fits well, the little bit of the maps they showed looked excellent, and I'm psyched to see where the story goes from here.

The enthusiasm on display in the video is adorable, and more than a little sad.

Perfectly stated, duder.

We really wanted to craft our own, new Halo experience. Which is why we called it Halo 4.

They called it Halo 4 because the "4" will get them millions of dollars more. It's stupid to complain about things like that.

Fan of the first and third games. Two probably had the best multiplayer. Maybe in this halo we shoot dudes ala multiplayer-campaign connection?

Seeing what a new studio does is actually invigorating. Just hope we get more halo one/three outdoors exploration and less halo copy-pastecorridors or reach/odst arenas.

New breed of Spartan IVs need VR combat training so throw all of them in war games settings.  Am I close?

Posted by jhevans51

As much excitement as I have for Halo 4, I can't help but cringe a little when they mention giving a compelling reason the Reds fight the Blues and tell that story. That's what Lucas said about getting the Jedi/Sith backstory from Episodes I-III.

Posted by Humanity

They seem so scared to make any changes to this series. Fourth game and they'e bringing back the combat rifle? How about they bring IN some really new and awesome iconic weapon. Add some texture to the environments, enough with the brushed steel look to everything. How about some wear and tear, some decay to the walls to the structures. I'm sure for those that REALLY love Halo this will be another great entry, but to me it's just reskinning the same game for the fourth time.

Also curious do people feel that at this point the fact that they've never shown Master Chiefs face is gotten so iconic that it makes no sense to show it - or do people still hope that they might finally show a human being under there?

Is it bad i knowticed the can of tennents sitting on some guys desk.

Posted by Goldanas

Never been into Halo. Perhaps it was the intensely bland presentation or vehemently lackluster atmosphere and tone, or maybe it was that when I played 1 and 2 on PC they didn't play very well (they were better designed for console), but whatever it is, this series does absolutely zero for me.

It's probably the reason Microsoft invests more in the multiplatform games like CoD than in their own series.

Posted by m2cks

Whoa, what is with all this negativity here? I personally can't wait to see where 343 takes this series; I'm especially excited for where the story will pick up and go from here!

Edited by Kyle

For a game that's supposed to be released within the year, it seems a bit alarming to me that the most they have to show of the campaign is "check out this Master Chief model and his gun." I hope this game doesn't end up getting rushed to market, since I doubt Microsoft is very keen on the idea of going another year without a "proper" new Halo game.

Also, 2:41 -- METAL GEAR?!

I couldn't resist : (

Posted by clumsyninja1

I would love see if the game came on the same date of CoD.I wonder if it would sell more?

Looking good 343.

Posted by Geejay22

Just give me this halo on pc please...

Posted by ssj4raditz

I hope that 343 can pull this off. It must be a heavy burden to take over such a big franchise like this.

Why, exactly? Care to explain why people who are stoked about their work is in any way sad?

Posted by JTB123

So 50/50 on this, the return of the BR is pretty awesome, but I just don't think there needs to be another Halo with the chief. But hey, who am I kidding, they at least get this day one purchase from me, those damn hype machines that they are!

"Kiki Wolfkill" is the best fucking name I've ever seen on a woman.

I can pretty much guarantee that the game is much farther along than what you're speculating. You don't show everything right out of the gate. They need to slowly trickle out more and more detailed stuff between now and launch.

Microsoft invests more in COD because it's a critical juncture in the market.

I don't agree with your shitting on halo (except the 2 pc port).

@TeflonBilly I like to think it will be anti space communism.

''Metal Gear?!''

Posted by Deathpooky

Well, you see, the Blue Spartans are fighting for Builder's League United. And the Red Spartans are fighting for Reliable Excavation & Demolition.

There seems to be a pretty big disconnect between "we're rethinking it all from the ground up" and "we reskinned the environment, models, and weapons, and are re-recording the music." We'll see as more comes out I suppose.

Posted by KimJongIllest

Kiki Wolfkill is an incredible name.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Honestly, after playing all of the Halo games, the most fun I have had still is Halo 1 multiplayer. Hopefully it will be that fun. And sounds like they learned from the Crysis games.
