[QUOTE="Zeviander"][QUOTE="GD1551"]Isn't it standard that the game should be done by now? Not sure how this particular case is special.Thefatness16

Considering all the games this gen released under the "release now, patch later" philosophy, no, this is quite special.

This isn't all that special for a Halo game. Reach went gold in June '10 and released a little more than three months later.

I remember during a panel Bungie saying that ODST was finished some 6 months before release.

Reach went gold some time in August '10. Game launched 14th Sept. IIRC.

If this were two-three years ago I'd probably buy that. Not now though, can't really justify it.

You still hanging in XBOX 360 threads? Of course you are, it's the best console.

You have NO GAMES, YOU NEVER HAVE WON AT ANY GAME. Your profile even proves it.

It is late in the gen for another console purchase considering I already own a 250gb slim but Im a sucker for special editions. Im still not convinced next gen is starting for another 2 years anyways so I will get my moneys worth.

when there are tools as predictable and ludicrous as you about, its easy to be amused by funny comments. you are the laughing stock dude, take the Mickey and say that I have a feeble mind, coming from you, its a compliment.

The only thing generic here is your damage control. Trolls ran out of material 3 years ago, so they just rehash the same worn out (and unsubstantiated) propoganda :P

Just reading a preview of halo 4 in my 360 mag, according to kiki wolfkill, master chief is now being referee to as John, there's a hell of a lot more character from him. You will feel like you are in the armour more than before. but mist exciting for me is the way that the unsc infinity will be a hub feeding Spartan ops and the multiplayer in a persistent evolving manner. if they get this gameplay right, halo 4 could be the best game on 360. I am really looking forward to it now.

You post something negative, people respond in a harsh mamnner and then you reply in kind with an insult about the posters intelligence.

You could easily map out a Day In The Life Of Kuraimen On SWs. Mix it up a little.

If it offers me a strong reason to play it, I'll buy it. If the SP campaign is a waste, then I'll skip it. I'm not into MP, so the major appeal of this game is lost on me. I was never fond of the series, but I have given them a shot. But never at full retail. Things may change this time around. This will most likely be my final chance to play a Halo game as I am dropping the brand(M$). My home is PS3 territory for gaming now. If M$ brings something special next gen or further, I might consider picking up the console.

remain hopeful that Halo 4 will return the franchise to its former glory.

What DLC? Spartan Ops is entirely free. And most people who own a 360 and play online already have a subscription.

I loved Valhalla, but Jesus, the entire UI for Halo 4 is so nasty looking.

Reach's was absolutely beautiful.

I don't play (online) shooters on consoles, with the exeption of StarHawk...I'm still not sure if I want to keep playing that...the 30 fps online gaming is just something I can't get used to. Don't even get me started on aiming with analog sticks...

Yeah, there's no reason for the player list to take half the screen, while Reach's took up about a tenth and showed the same amount of info. I really hope this and their playlist management improve in later games.
