Personally I prefer Chief as a quiet, absolute, almost "hand-of-god" character, but I would like to see exploration of his human side. I just hope that this focus is shown more through Cortana, as she does essentially represent Chiefs conscious
Well my 360 just broke and I got a new job. I've been saving for a brand new xbox and am going to get halo 4 come black friday ;)
"Halo has a story to get invested in? Damn I must have missed in when I blinked, in between walking down the same corridors and killing enemies for 10 whole hours per game."
I say again, I've read the books. The Halo universe is much bigger than the games you have played. If you have no time for Halo then the books aren't for you but for anyone who likes the story, I would very much recommend them.
I really wish you guys would listen sometimes, we waste so much time with people just not listening.
The only games I own are Halo titles, MGS, GTA, GOW, Crysis, Supreme Commander and Command & Conquer titles.
If you like just 1 of those games, then accept that we have something in common and stop highlighting our differences.
And lastly, for all you guys who take this sooooo seriously, stop masturbating and playing Video games and actually live life a bit more.
Games are for fun, not for arguing about.
I haven't play Halo for a very long time, what I miss the most on this game and I just dont understand why they pull it off is "ROCKET RACE" that was the most fun and frantic game mode, I laughed so hard every time you passed some else at 100 miles an hour ans hear them yelling "GO BACK GO BACK" "SHOOT HIM"....that was fun!!! CO OP at his best! :) if they decide to bring it back, I'm buying the game today....
How many times have we seen online videos like these and then the game sucks? Not saying it will be the case with this game, so cool your jets fan boys, but you get what im saying right? Dev. can talk as much as they want about how they're trying to achieve something but in the end the game will be the deciding factor.
My only concern that might be 12 hours and less with it all being about multiplayers. I liked halo but seems each game got shorter after first one exception of reach which seemed longer than 2, 3 and ddst.
I played the original halo's for story. I might actually pick this up again if there is a story I give a dam about.
interesting, looks alot like new jumping off point for the series. I am very curious now as to how this new trilogy will play out.
I only got the sequels to CE to continue to story. I wasn't interested in picking this up because the gameplay is highly unlikely to entertain me much again, but the way they're tugging my strings about story is re-convincing me. The chief is always so stoic, even when he's got the world on his shoulders, it'd be interesting to see if he ever loses confidence
10:18.... I havent looked into how long time wise this is from Reach/the other halos but... could that be Dr. Halsey?
Just remake Halo 2 already. Anyone's who's owned the original Xbox and played H2 online knows that that's one of the greatest games ever made.
@Vitex2003 never heard of a ralisgtic game haha
@buccomatic Worn out? Maybe. Unknowable until the game comes out and is actually played. Nerdy? Every gaming franchise is a nerdy franchise. If you're really using nerdy as an insult, you are certainly in the wrong kind of company. The gaming community is inherently nerdy. We are all nerds. In the context of gamers, 'nerdy' is much more complimentary than insulting, unless it were coming from some jock troll.
You're typing about 5 times as much as me and you tell ME to stop masturbating and arguing about? LOL!!
As for the books thing, yeah Space Invaders also had an AMAZING book to go with the story. So they decided to leave out the entire story from the game and just have it in a book. ;)
Dude, if I have to look elsewhere for the story other than the game itself, then the GAME doesn't have a story.
@danielcliment rocket race was in halo reach for a while but they change the game modes all the time they probs will have it as a game mode at some point in halo 4, also griftball was fun and thats back in halo 4:)
@MooncalfReviews dont know where u were when i was playing halo all of them are "dramatic" this one is more "dramatic" i think u should go play your dull story of resistance.
@nameaprice Yeah, Bungie was pretty bad with the hype to actual gameplay thing, and I doubt 343 is any different. In some cases, Bungie outright lied (remember the videos showing the options for Firefight? Did we even get 1/100 of those options? Those options were for Bungie and Bungie only). Halo 4 will be like all the others, nothing more. That's not a bad thing, mind you.
@nameaprice Brink had a ton of these videos. So did demon's forge. All PR fluff, but still fun to watch.
@goufzero20 ODST was really short. I was surprised to play ODST after Halo 3 and finish it in less than a few days. The main games in the series seem a lot longer, but I think Halo 3 just had better pacing than the other two games, which is why it seemed shorter. But I could be wrong, I haven't played it in a while.
But yeah, 343 better not turn Halo into another FPS with a short singleplayer and an over complicated multiplayer.
@Fist-of-Fury360 Forward unto dawn?
It's 2 years after Halo 3
@Gegglington this is produced by microsoft so ENDING! ENDING YOU SAY! i think not. HALO 5 2014.
@Gegglington Nah, it's not produced by EA
@Sevenizz No halo CE is
Well in an ideal world, games would have a fully fledged story in them and MGS is the only game out of the games that I've played that tells you all you need to know. The long cutscenes are a blessing for me but some its tedious so you can't make everyone happy.
Anyway, it's a given that books are normally better than their film or video game adaptations and Halo itself could only allude to the detail which the books go into otherwise it would need to be like MGS lol.
@jayjay444 never heard of griftball, but sounds fun! I have to admit I lost interest in halo after Reach, I feel it didn't evolve game wise, graphically is pretty good! I wish other games had that amazing theater mode!!!
@evilweav yea true... im hungry... i think ill make a sandwich
