Whys is anyone following destiny's footsteps? I love halo, but this makes me not want to purchase anything in the future. But marvel, comics books, and super heros have been around for years, so I can see it going for ages.

Two of Microsoft's exclusives (Gears and Halo) have formulas they are well beyond stale. Instead of riding them for decades they really need to get some new IP's going.

Hey just wanted to leave some constructive criticism about Gamespot News. I used to come here every week day but find myself visiting less and less because it seems that most news is just a glorified video game infomercial. Last year it seemed like you covered more varied and interesting topics like that one guy who bought a picture of an xbox one instead of an actually xbox one. I want more that type of news and less news about when a new game is coming out. Thanks for all of you hard works Jess!

@Ferric24 I guess that's a valid point, but maybe there are simply less of those kinds of stories? I have always wanted the news to be longer but I can see what Gamespot wants this to be and being short is a key part of that I'm sure.

If you want more I guess you have to go through the articles. I read or at least glance at almost all of them, but I have nothing better to do most days :).

I don't see why Halo can't go on for another 30 years. The Halo universe is like the Star War universe, they don't have to keep relying on Master Chief and could branch out into the "extended universe" sometime in the future, or maybe take a hiatus and bring it back for the next generation again similar to Star Wars. The biggest hurdle is whether the game industry as we know it today will be around, that's something I'm much less sure about, what with the direction it seems to heading of late.

you left out the most important thing in the DmC trailer, fans don't give a damn if its 60 fps or 1080p, it was all about the old Dante skin, they do this as fanservice cause every one of them was pizzed about teeny hipster Dante :)

A few more decades of Halo it's ok with me, I don't see the problem. It's MS's pet like Mario it's to Nintendo, so I don't see why it should go away.

I wasn't able to watch the video before I posted my first comments. I just read subtitle/sumary.


I'm happy that they're going to have more women characters in Halo. I hate males. Just playing, maybe. I love seeing a woman in charge of the franchise/studio. I'm sure Jen Taylor, the voice of Cortana, is happy since she says she. often has a hard time finding other roles because she's stereotyped as Cortana.


Maybe Jess will be in Halo.

Jess is the most beautiful woman in the world.

I love you too.

@SaintsRowLA @nE0-n1nja You talking and commenting about the hostess all the time makes you look like a stalker, pervert, creepy guy, etc.. I scroll down, thinking about the gaming news and reading game related comments, and I stumble upon YOU talking about freakin Jess!! It's not gonna make her feel special, it's just awkward and disturbing. That's just my opinion of course, I'm sure you'll keep doing your stuff, I just said I wish there was a way to not see your comments.

You seem to have very strong feelings. You seem to be very hostile towards my comments. I'm sure you're right, I do overdo it. And I apologize just like I have in the past.


From my point of view, it seems to me that your are overreacting, you're telling yourself a very negative story to yourself about me and my comments that are the furthest thing from the truth, besides making a mountain out of a tiny mole hill. Also, this seems to be the cultural norm here at GameSpot for people to think this way.


I truly assure you, my motives are pure. I have the most positive intentions. I wasn't raised here at GameSpot or on the Internet and I'm very happy I wasn't. I'm an outsider with a fresh set of eyes, personal experience, & upbringing. I refuse to conform. I will never conform and be like everyone else here. If I were a woman and I spent my whole life on GameSpot, I wouldn't anything to do with the male gender, with some exceptions, at least not here. The cultural norm here at GameSpot is an abomination to 'How To Win Friends and Influence People', and course of book written on human relations, business relations, psychology and the human race.


I've always been taught to pay sincere compliments and to show my appreciation. It's better than saying nothing IMHO and IMAO, even if I do overdo it.


If a woman thought or told me I was the best man in the world, I would be flattered. Yes, I've been told this, had it expressed to me in real life and on the Internet. It's a great compliment, even if I didn't feel the same way in return. I'm sure you'd like it to.


If you have that special someone in your life, make you tell them how special they are everyday, unless they say otherwise. That's what I've been taught.s

@SaintsRowLA @nE0-n1nja LOL whatever man. I don't care at all about your motives and intentions or about anything else you said in that wall of text. Your comments will still annoy me.

Hey, please stop breathing already.

So when someone tries to do something nice, you think it's evil.

May no one ever do or say anything nice for you, may no woman find you attractive or flirt with you in a friendly way, may no one pay you a compliment, may no one ever show you any appreciation ever for anything.


It's my nature to show appreciation for people and to them compliments and to make them feel special, or at least try to.

Wow! You're so full of hate. You interpret everything in the worst way.

Here's a compliment for you. You're truly the most ugly person in the world. You're mother is sorry she gave birth to you.

Remember, if anyone says anything nice about you, be sure to think nasty thoughts about them.

Since Halo wars, there has been a Halo release every year...they have quietly annualized the series, AND they want to keep at it for 30 years? Damn, way to ruin a franchise

@homelessgamer What about cheers to more Jess? What happened to that?!?!

You said the whole point of being here is to talk about Jess and no one should get off topic by talking video games. Yes, you did say that. I thought that was really funny.

You're talking about video games. You're slipping ;)


I never thanked you for wonderful compliment you gave me last January. Yes, I do remember. Do I have a photographic memory? Maybe. You told Jess "to marry me so we wouldn't have to worry about her." Thank you. I think you deleted the comment later on if it wasn't removed by a moderator. Thank you.

343 Studio wouldn't be able to release games like the Master Chief Collection if they were not able to patch them. Maybe they should go to Blu-Ray discs/memory sticks/cartridges for single-player games. I think game devs would change their strategy for the better. Game quality would improve at least 10 fold, since game releases would be final.

I just bought DMC for PS3 last month :( right before it stopped working. Wish they had released this little announcement a little earlier. Cool stuff about Witcher, as long as they keep it interesting.

@Jess

I know that it could be hard to you, but Ciri's name should be pronounced TSEE-ree (CAPS = stressed syllable). Also 'R' in the middle is a hard one, similar to "Mordor". Most of all: she's not SEE-ree. I hope you will learn that just as you learnt that Geralt is not Jeralt. Thank you Jess.

@Vojtass That's super anal retentive but I like it.

Pronouncing people's names right is important, even fictional people.
