I like this feature, I do not like this game. Let's see how the reception is for this game.

During Stockpile, the team's color for their respective stockpile is wrong.  I can see why Drew took the flags to the blue deposit zone.

Looks great. 
 
I liked the first two Halo's a lot, but the third game didn't really click with me in the same way, no idea why. But this has got me a little bit hyped. Will probably end up picking this up.

I stayed up til 11pm, waiting for new endurance run and I watched this as the 'one video before I definitely have to sleep, oh god I have to get up and go to work in 6 hours'??? 
 
Don't get me wrong, I loved Halo, but I hated Halo 2 which made me not yet play Halo 3 or ODST. 
 
Apparently though the promise of Brad, Drew AND Vinny on a video is enough to suck me in and now the ERs will have to wait til tomorrow evening. 
 
Did like the look of some of those weapons though. Maybe seeing this is a prequel the Halo 2 nightmare kneejerk reaction won't be so strong.

I must say it looks way more appealing as all previous Halo games, but I don't like the pacing and floatiness, so I'll pass in regards to multiplayer, I'll check the singleplayer for sure tho.

Talk about motion Blur much, when he looks at the floor and moves at the same time.

Call of Duty tore me and my friends away from Halo but this looks like the game to bring us back in.
 
Oh and good job Brad. Apparently he's a pretty good Halo player, that's me judging from the first match.

Multiplayer for this Halo looks really interesting with the class types to scatter the field with different abilities plus something every game needs - jetpacks.

Head Hunter is almost exactly like the Capture the Heads event from a UO free server I played years ago. 
Kill an enemy, cut off his head and run back to base to drop it in the team's chest.

Was it just my crappy internet/laptop or was there a substantial amount of lag with loads of things happening on screen?
