Title: Halo
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Dec 10, 2006, 12:19:56 PM
Three more games coming out, two record breaking games in the bag and actual well written novels based on the game. Who here is a fan of Halo?

I'm a huge fan.

I wonder where Halo 3 will go though, particularly as Halo 2 f**ked up so badly, story wise. All the signs are promising for Halo 3 though.

The recent ad (http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/734/734817/vids_1.html), and teaser (http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/734/734817/vids_2.html) look good. Everything is on Earth, that we've seen...

I can't wait.

I like Halo, but the turns the second game made story wise has made me lose quite some interest. If it weren't for the fact that my brother will get Halo 3 no matter what, I wouldn't really be caring that much for it, aside from the multiplayer gameplay.

Here's hoping to being able to play as an Elite without it being considered a disadvantage! ;D
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Dec 14, 2006, 06:11:01 PM
What things are you talking about specifically? The story changes.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: DB on Dec 14, 2006, 06:28:42 PM
Namely, the portrayal of the Covenant. I used to think of them (since I had never read any Halo novels) as a utopian society that humans could never form. So many different races, united by one ideal. In Halo 2, the Covenant are human beings with different physiques. They speak english better than most people I know. As I learned of the Covenant, they became all too familiar. They became boring. They were not either an alien group to admire, or to fear. I'm also rather dulled at the campaign. Switching from the Arbiter to the Chief and back made me lose interest in either and playing from the perspective of the Covenant made me, again, become too familiarized with them.

In the first game, I disliked the Flood. In Halo 2, I'm introduced to the Gravemind and I feel like I'm being laughed at. Why is this piece of vomit here? :-\

The only aspect I didn't like in Halo 1 was the religious reasons for their assault, I would have much rather have had them consider humans for the Covenant, but them disdain us as beings incapable of holding such a position and not only that, but as an overpopulated race that threatened the balance of a galactic ecosystem. So, they decide to pwn us. In Halo 2, their religion is given even more emphasis.

I'm certain I'm forgetting a few things, but I suppose that mild explanation can do for now.

As another minor nitpick, however, the Jackal snipers in Legendary are ridiculous. >:(
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Dec 14, 2006, 06:33:18 PM
I must admit, I hated the Arbiter campaign of Halo2. But only because it made no difference in the gameplay.

As for the language thing. I'd think it was just their speach being translated for our benefit.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: DB on Dec 14, 2006, 06:36:06 PM
Oh, yeah, I recognize that in cinematics they made them speak English for that purpose. It's just that when in game the Elites seem to speak English too much and for too well.

Title: Re: Halo
Post by: CELTICPRED on Dec 15, 2006, 06:06:57 AM
I totally agree with you guys who hate Halo 2's story.

The multiplayer is great, the campaign is short, the arbiter is boring, and the flood, again, is lame as hell.

As for the covenant, giving them the whole religious storyline and actually delving the player deep into the covenant storyline was unneeded.  It ruined the aura of the badass unstoppable covenant force which glassed planets at will.


Halo 3 looks f**king icredible though.  Our Halo 3 forum has 22,000 posts, even if it may be full of nothing but little kids who are home from school and have nothing better to do.



I trust you have all seen the new 60 second tv spot that aired during Monday Night Football last week right?
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Cabal on Dec 16, 2006, 07:34:53 PM
To all those who found Halo 2 to be lacking story-wise (as I did) a reason.

This is long, but any true Halo Fan should find it HIGHLY fascinating...

The following is all true, based on documentaries, articles, interviews, the special DVD that came with the game's Silver Edition, and basic perception.

Roughly 7 months before E3 2003, Bungie decided they would shock the world with an intense footage of live, actual gameplay that blew everyone away. Unfortunately, 7 months before E3 2003, all they had finished making so far was the game's basic outline (story and content-wise) and an experimental version of the game's engine, all of which took about 5 months in itself. Nevertheless, they spent the next 7 months solely on that 10 demo so that it would hype us out of our minds for the actual game. Anything they could think of that seemed cool, they threw into the demo without thinking about any consequences it may have. Like people thinking it would be in the game. They were just too excited to care. 

Ultimately, finishing the demo took up all of their 7 months of work time.

After Bungie hyped the world out of its mind with their undeniably awesome demo, they came back and realized they had made a mistake that not even the public or gaming press would think a game company could make... which officially became known as, based on hard stats, "The Greatest Upset in Gaming History". 

They had wasted the last 7 months of work. Completely and 100%. They realized they didn't have a level. They didn't even have a part of a level. What they had was a demo, that ran on an experimental engine that ultimately could not work with the Xbox, and none of it could be implemented into the actual game. For the next TWO months, I kid you not, Bungie studios was practically empty because they were so confused on what course of action to take. 

Those 2 months dwindled away. That's when Microsoft showed up...

Microsoft, being fair and rational, inquired as to why the hell Bungie had been screwing around with Halo 2 for 1.5 years but still seemed to have no useable material. Who knows if Bungie leveled with Microsoft and admitted they screwed up, or if they hid the truth somehow. The fact was, the hype for Halo 2 had been set with an actual playable demo. The public would not stand for waiting much longer after seeing something that made the game look so... complete. In all rationality, a good game takes about 1.5 years to make. It had been almost 2 since the public thought Halo 2 was in the works. So Microsoft did what it had to do. It gave Bungie a deadline that would wind up as their death sentence. They were given 10 months to finish the game before Microsoft demanded the discs be made and shipped. 

They hadn't even started making the actual game...

For ten months, Bungie studios sacrificed every fiber of their beings to make the game. They did not go to their homes after work. They designed and programmed for 18 to 20 hours a day, falling asleep on their desks or on beanbags. They rushed the game furiously. Slamming it together piece by piece, hoping things at least functioned without a total crash. 

And as the leader of Bungie said, "At that moment, Pandora's Box was opened...".

Literally 75% of what Bungie had originally intended to be in the game, had to be scrapped. It was absolutely the only way to finish the game on time. If anyone wants me to, I can develop a list of what was promised in the game that was ripped from it. 

The worst part of it all, was that even the original intended storyline had to be mutilated. Anybody remember the original Halo 2 Teaser where the MC jumped out of a space station? Think about what we saw happening to Earth in that trailer. Or watch it again. What do you notice?

Earth... is in flames.

Most people have forgotten that the trailer and demo of Halo 2 both gave a direct impression that the game would contain the first stage of THE LAST BATTLE FOR EARTH. ALL ACROSS AND OVER EARTH. Think of the demo. Human bombers bunker-busting giant covenant artillery, Jackals marching in Rusty Nails"



I tend to believe this, particularly as Bungie are now working in "opposite" conditions: No defined release date, they are out-sourcing the teaser/trailer responsibilities.

Also, mistakes made in Halo 2 seem to have been taken to heart. Earth is central. Don't expect a trunkated earth-campaign. There is no sign that there will be any other playable race (maybe I'm just being naive). Stronger story devices, in that the story, at least the emotional focus, will utilise flashbacks to give the Masterchief a greater human element. This possibly because he will die in Halo 3.

Halo seems to be a rip off of ALIENS.
Here's why:

It's not a ripoff. It's just inspired by.

Title: Re: Halo
Post by: CELTICPRED on Dec 19, 2006, 05:17:50 AM
Not a ripoff, but what hasn't been inspired by an incredible movie like Aliens?

In fact, Halo has a lot taken from Predator and Alien


Invisibility cloak
Aliens with mandibles
Aliens with warrior caste system

The pelican looks like the dropship
Numerous soldiers have some quotes like that of Hicks and Hudson

Johnson is pretty much a carbon copy of Al Matthews as Apone

The pillar of Autumn looks a hell of a lot like the Sulaco.


Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Yautja on Dec 19, 2006, 11:55:09 AM
The dropship in Halo is also very similar to the one from Aliens.

Title: Re: Halo
Post by: BrokenTusk on Feb 12, 2007, 02:20:05 AM




Spoilers




since reading Halo: Ghosts of Onyx it makes me wonder would we be able to play as the Spartan 3's ?
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Cabal on Feb 12, 2007, 02:55:02 AM
I doubt we'll see that.


Bungie were saying on their site a while back that they were looking into recording female lines for multiplayer. Whether they'd just use the voice for the standard Spartan model, or make a new female model remains to be seen. Infact, the voice recording may not occur as the idea was just pitched to visitors to the site.

I'd expect playable Brutes.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: BrokenTusk on Feb 12, 2007, 04:03:33 AM
I expect the brutes to regenerate health like the spartans and elites are able to regnerate their health and shields. though Bungie for the most part have been good in keeping their secrets, I remember one update from their site stated And the MLG boys will sweat blood with excitement. They will all still moan at me about how we nerfed the pistol from Halo One, but this new thing will at least cheer 'em up for a few months. Or years. It's that big.

makes me wonder if their is some new gameplay added on, or hell maybe in campaign we actually fight alonside Linda, Fred, and Kelly and in co-op take control of them ala Gears of War.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: CELTICPRED on Feb 20, 2007, 07:20:54 AM
I'm going to be pissed if they change multiplayer and allow you to be brutes or the other species.


It needs to remain spartans/elites.  Hell, I wouldn't care if they put some ODST soldiers or marines in there as just skins,

But the whole idea of being able to play as a hunter/elite/jackal/grunt if f**king retarded.




And yes, female spartan voices were recorded.  So we might see a female spartan model, but if you look at Nicole from DOA 4, she doesn't look much different from the chief.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: BrokenTusk on Feb 21, 2007, 12:42:37 AM
campaign is one thing I'm really worry about, I hope they took their time and actually give a 20-30 hrs FPS game here, unlike Halo 2 which took about 10-15 hrs. also I hear they're doing something new with Legendary instead of making the enemies tougher.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: ShadowPred on Feb 25, 2007, 02:45:47 PM
i say that it should just be elites/spartans but they better change the fact that elites can get killed easier with sniper rifles because you can just shoot that big neck of theirs and they're dead, try shooting a spartan in the neck and they won't even die.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: BrokenTusk on Feb 25, 2007, 05:51:42 PM
yeah never understood why the neck wasn't consider lethal enough to bring a Spartan down with one shot. still it only takes 2 shots to bring down anyone with anything less of a head shot.

so I rather like the S2AM UNSC sniper rifle, and Covenant beam Rifle.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: CELTICPRED on Feb 26, 2007, 07:16:03 AM
The problem with the elites is the fact that their "hit boxes" are bigger than a spartan's.

That is one reason why I want to keep the multiplayer models as spartans or odst hell jumpers in mp.


From what I've read so far on Bungie.net, single player doesn't seem to be a problem.  True, Halo 2's campaign was around 13 hours compared to Halo 1's 17 hours, but it could still be longer.

Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Ze scarecrow on Feb 26, 2007, 11:27:59 AM
Yeah i thought Halo2's levels were great but because you didnt get to play master chief that much, it felt shorter than halo 1, still i loved it it was an awesome game and a great idea at getting a different perspective

If anyone didn't know, Bungie announced that they are releasing 2 new maps for Halo 2 over xbox live for both the Xbox and Xbox 360.

One is a remake of Hang Em High (wootness), and one is a remake of Derelict.


They are both available April 17.

Title: Halo 3 Beta
Post by: DB on May 28, 2007, 12:32:50 AM
Some of you must be playing the Beta by now.

What do you think of it? Is Bungie heading in the right direction?

From what I can tell, yes, they are. I love everything they've changed, what they've implemented and what they've fixed. I never thought I'd see the day when duel Plasma Rifles would defeat a shotgun in combat. Course, I have complaints, but they aren't very big ones.

-Make the SLaser a perfect accuracy weapon. It's too easy to kill infantry with it.

-Warthogs need to die when they are stuck - especially if they are stuck more than once.

-Add like 4 more bullets to the AR. Just 4. Those 4 miserable bullets would greatly help the AR.

-The camo sucks. At least make it so that it decreases the range in which you are detected by the motion sensor. Have it do something.

Other than this, I'm in love with the Beta. If I would get more maps, and the ability to play as an Elite, I wouldn't even need the whole game. That's how awesome it is.
Title: Re: Halo 3 Beta
Post by: ShadowPred on May 28, 2007, 02:49:26 AM
The beta has got me hooked, i never like the online with Halo 2, but the beta made me reconside, i really like the control scheme.
Title: Re: Halo 3 Beta
Post by: CELTICPRED on May 28, 2007, 04:33:41 AM
As of right now, 52 RP, gunnery Sergeant.


I'm in love with the spartan laser, the targeting is perfect in my opinion, seeing as you've only got enough ammo for 5 rounds.

There is no reason to turn the Spartan Laser into the sniper rifle.


As for the hogs, they could be a little more vulnerable, but they probably beefed them up to counter the new banshee plasma mortar.


As for the banshee, I still wish they would have kept the plasma mortar out of MP, I hate the new balancing they gave the banshee, like the flying up and down, not being able to point straight down, lack of maneuverability.



It's great, it's a far better game than Halo 2's MP. Bringing back the AR saved this game, it's great seeing it go back to melee and grenades for killing, not shitty dual wielding.

We should just make this the Halo 3 thread.


On the RVB forums, we've got all the noob fanboys running around screaming about this thing called Adjutant Reflex, it's starting to piss me off.


Can't wait for H3 though. Preorder and all.

Did you guys participate in the ilovebees stuff for Halo 2?  I was still in college during that time and a friend and I were driving around for one of the GPS locations that was supposed to have a payphone to answer.. It ended up being in some ghetto area but we couldn't find the payphone.  We found some other dudes looking for it too tho lol. 

Thats pretty much the height of my nerding out :P  Fun though :)

Looks like the Chief and the Arbiter will be working together now (as I expected). I think when you play co-op, the 2nd player will be the Arbiter, instead of 2 Master Chiefs.

That's my thoughts as well, kinda pisses me off seeing as how I hate the arbiter.
Title: Re: Halo 3 Marketing HAS BEGUN
Post by: That Yellow Alien on Jul 11, 2007, 07:13:58 AM
I didn't mind the Arbiter. It is an interesting story arc (to me at least). It made the story more complex (in a good way). I know the shift in perspectives bothered a lot of fans, but I liked it. We got to see the impact the destruction of Halo had on both sides. I liked the Covenant Civil War angle that was introduced and how what began as a hatred for each other will become an alliance. It all escalates into what I hope is an amazing climax.

That's exactly how I felt. When he said combined live action and Weta Digital, I was like "Oh hell yes!"! Then it played and all it showed was marines gearing up. I wanted gun fights with Covenants and Master Chief. The video they showed was bleh...

I thought the Arms Race video was pretty awesome.. No fighting, but damn it had some cool atmosphere in parts.

Check out the high res screens from Halo 3 here.  They look better than the trailer, specially since you can sit there and take in all the detail.

Notice how he says "You can play as the Master Chief IF YOU CHOOSE TO.

Makes me think that you can choose to either play as Chief or Arbiter and depending on who you choose, you see the story through a different point of view. Kinda like how you can choose between Jill of Chris in Resident Evil. This would give reason to play through Halo 3 twice. I like this idea and I hope it's true.
Title: Re: Halo 3
Post by: Cellien on Jul 21, 2007, 06:33:33 PM
Just hoping they don't force you to play the Arbiter like the 2nd one.  Thats when the game took a weird turn and started to confuse the hell outta me with the story.

Halo did nothing but continuously rip off aliens.

Very cool.

Here's a little Halo 3 news that I wish I was a part of. Remember how the Beta worked. Some of the people that were INVITED to the Beta have been INVITED to play Halo 3 EPSILON. What is it? Well, it is a chance to test:

6 maps, including Sandtrap.
Custom games.
Forge.
4 player Co-op over Xbox live.
1 level of CAMPAIN.

This is all available for those who are invited on Marketplace. I was not invited but I sure wish I was.

PS The Flamethrower as a support weapon rules. I think we should all play a custom game with only support weapons. Up the spen of the players and that would be Hella fun.

Go to Halo3.com. It's the Halo 3 ARG. Alternate Reality Game. The Servers all have different clues, as you solve them, others open up. Now all of the Servers are open. There are small video files, tar mas and transmission logs, that relate to Halo's story.

Uf you want a very good forum to disscuss the ARG, go to Bungie.net and look for a group called COMPOUND INTELLIGENCE.  You join that group and then are tonnes of info about the Servers. But it is all up to the minute stuff on people actually figuring the ARG out. They are much smarter than me.

I think Wikipedia has a good run down to. Probably better to stat there.

Bungie needs to burn in hell for copying the Elite(predator) Marine Corp.(Aliens) Flood(Alien) and i can list over 500 things that they ripped off of those series. So ya know what? Im gonna make a game called "Total Assault" and im gonna rip them off, they deserve it.

Halo was influenced by the Alien world, but really, who cares. If you want to look at it like a total rip-off... well then you get a really good Aliens game. Quite whining, Halo 3 will rule all. I can't wait, 18 more days.

With me, it's just the fact that it's so blatant.

Johson is the same, the dropship is the same, the marines are the same.


Bungie could have took the ideas and made them their own, but they didn't.



Sure, it "doesn't matter" but it still annoys me.

The big reason its so popular is because of the of the many things it has


when you mix a Alien/Human war with infested Brainless zombies smacking the hell out of you while holding a rocket launcher chasing after you will no end,you know no game can compare to that

When Giant Apes come charging in at you with blind fury shooting a grenade at you non-stop,nothing can compare to that

Nothing can compare to halo other than Bioshock in most cases.

Halo 2's campaign sucked, as well as numerous enemies.

Which is why I'm glad that the brutes are re-tooled.



Also, OXM magazine's head editor got to play Halo 3 all the way through the campaign, and on all mp maps.

She'll have a 10 page review a day or two prior to the release.

I don't agree at all. The story is key, but one of the other big reasons is how easy it is to just pick up. It's a complicated game that is easy to play. Hardcore gamers can get an incredibly hard and rich game, or a casual gamer can just play. Then you add the replay value with the online stuff and WHAM!

Best game ever. Halo 3 may not be the revolution, but it is a giant leap in the evolution of gaming.

I have no doubt Bioshock is a great game, but it doesn't appeal to me like Halo.  Bioshock is dark, depressing, and lots of eerie corridors.. Halo is testosterone driven, bright, outdoors and just pure fun.  Its the Mario of FPS games :)

Me and my friends are having trouble awaiting this game. More than a few hours is too long. :(

We are absolutely certain that this game will be the end of mankind on Earth. Because once Halo 3 comes out, nobody will eat, nobody will shit, nobody will have sex, nobody will work, nobody will do anything except play Halo 3. Human civilization will die. Well... maybe chicks will still do stuff. But men the world over will cease to live.

Why? Because Halo 3 > Everything. ;D ;D

:P

From what I've seen, this game is shaping out to be amazing. I have yet to see something I whole heartedly dislike.

WETA's work looks like shit compared to ILM's CGI and Winston's practical effects.


I'm merely saying, I only trust Winston when it comes to a practical suit.


The Iron Man armor has given me some little glance of hope in a practical Master Chief, but again, Winston won't work with WETA, so that means give me a CGI chief.

You can bet there will be another Halo. It's such a massive franchise Microsoft will get another developer to make the game if Bungie decides not to work on it. Personally I think the Master Chief dies at the end of part 3, we'll probably see another character take center stage in the fourth game which probably won't even be called Halo 4. It will be like Halo Wars, a splinter game that takes place in the Halo universe.

There is a game called Halo Wars, it a real-time strategy video game that take place before the first Halo game.

Quote from: fluxcap on Sep 20, 2007, 11:55:33 PM
You can bet there will be another Halo. It's such a massive franchise Microsoft will get another developer to make the game if Bungie decides not to work on it. Personally I think the Master Chief dies at the end of part 3, we'll probably see another character take center stage in the fourth game which probably won't even be called Halo 4. It will be like Halo Wars, a splinter game that takes place in the Halo universe.

Here's basically what's going to happen.

The Halo we all know right now is just a series in a massive franchise.


This "Master Chief" story arc will be concluded with Halo 3. Will this be the final FPS game in the franchise? Doubtful.

There are plenty more Halo games to be made. Peter Jackson is working on one, and Ensemble Studios is working on Halo Wars.

There is a new Vidoc on Bungie based on saved films / forge.

It is absolutely epic.

The game is worth the multiplayer alone.

He should die.
Go out in a blaze of glory, like saving the world or something while holding off loads of Brutes with an assault rifle.

A metal death.

A BIT OF A WARNING.
Every single version is RUMORED to have a loose disc inside of the package.
It could possibly be a booklet, or the DVD on the Legendary or Limited Edition.
I checked my copies today that I recieved, and indeed, quite a few of them had something loose inside.
I hope they aren't the actual game... Because that would be terrible.

Let me clarify.. I was still as the store when I noticed it was scratched.. I told them I'd just like the regular edition since there were no reports of faulty cases.  Cashier gave me $10.80 back in refund and a new standard edition Halo 3 box.  How does that qualify as accept anything from MS?  I, infact, DIDN'T accept it.  I gave MS/Walmart less of my money.  I think someone's just on rampage because they have to settle with Liar..ahem.. I mean Lair.  ;)

From what I have had time to play, it's f**king awesome.  Hope you guys have a HDTV cause the visuals are soooooooo clear and sharp.  Everything is lush, rich lighting..fine attention to detail.  Oh, and the gameplay feels so epic... Tried out some 3 player co-op OMG.. wow.  Imagine all your buddies and the AI all driving vehicles up to the next wave of enemies.. you're like a gawd damn mini army... the rush of adrenaline you get in Halo 3 is unparalleled in any game.

Every time I see the Minigun I just have to pick it up. Shame it doesn't have that many bullets 'cause it sure as hell tears through everything.

Also...Seriously...How big did they want to make the levels!?! They're huge! They put Halo and Halo2 combined to shame...Absolutely massive, and brilliant. Tsavo Highway was like a wet dream come true, I'm now addicted to the Brute Chopper.

I'm now on the level just after where you take down the Scarab and that massive Covenant Gun, won't tell you what happens because it has some big spoilers in it.

Haven't played Multiplayer yet, but apparently it makes the visuals better. Will check it out when I renew my subscription.

Nice one, except that the game is rated M, just like the other games you mentioned.  I love Gears too, but there is no reason you have to discount Halo because YOU think Gears is better.  Halo is unique, it's also one of the few new shooters that isn't 100 shades of brown, green, and grey. :)

I'd say Halo 3 alone is enough reason to own a 360 with how much replay value it has through multiplayer, item (skull) collecting, unlockable suits, forge map editor, replay theater etc.  It really is the most solid, extensive, and deep game I think I have ever played.  Other games are very nice, like the first MGS and Gears of War.. but nothing compares to the bang for your buck like Halo 3.  The game is basically like a 10-15 hour sci-fi story you get to interact with that is better than most of the recent sci-fi movie offerings.  On top of that, you get endless hours of multiplayer and going through the campaign again with a friend (or 4) is more exciting than single player.

Even if you get tired of Halo, most will agree the 360 has the best line-up of games that you could dive into.

They are working on a new Halo Trilogy, it's production at the moment according to Bungie.
It is?
Last i heard bungie said they want to do something other than halo for a change.

Most of the levels are fairly easy to do by yourself, i.e Floodgate. But I'll happily do it with you, it only takes two. I did it all by myself or with one other, except for Cortana where I had three others.

No, you can't.  :-\

I recently got 1000/1000 Gamerscore for Halo 3 and I must say, the Marathon Armour and the Katana Chest Armour rocks!

When you have Live, getting all the achievements is easy. So long as you are relatively good at the game.

There will be a Halo 4, but... Bungie has announced they are working on a new IP? It started durring the last phase of Halo 3.

The MC is still alive so there is still a story, Halo 3 was just the end of that arc. I think Halo 4 will link up with the ghosts of onynx story. There is also alot of story to finish with the Arbiter, He still needs to return home to see if his home planet is still intact from the flood and the brutes. Also the Forerunners still have not been revealed.

I am hopeful that the Peter Jackson game will be a Mass Effect type game with heavy FPS elements.

On the Halo 2 SE deleted scenes, it shows that the Phrophets and elites used to be sworn enemies, so that also explains that the covenant is made up of different species.

Thats the legendary ending of halo CE...

It shows an Elite and Johnson fighting, they see the Pillar of autumn about to explode so they stop and hug. It's a non canon ending, as said by bungie.


One thing im confused about with halo wars.

How come the spartans, who are wearing mark IV armour, look more like the mark VI armour than the mark V?
Surely they should look more like the old mark V rather than the brand new mark VI...

Marathon takes place 252 years after Earth (ostensibly) has rebuilt from the events of Halo.

The ending of Marathon Infinity gives the John literally the ability to do whatever he wants, so it makes sense he would place himself doing the only things he really knows how to do: fight, sometime in the past when he's needed just as badly.

As for Halo 4, considering how burnt out Bungie staffers are. I doubt it'll come from Bungie, and probbaly not til Microsoft needs another major push. (New Platform, new service, something like that)

Bungie has said that Halo and Marathon take place in different universes. So Halo 4 will NOT be marathon. Bungie has said that a small team split from Halo 3's team to start a new IP.

There were rumors that Halo 3 would be called FORERUNNER. Given the Legendary ending of Halo 3, FORERUNNER could be a continuation of the Master Chief's story (the new IP). If you read The Ghosts of Onyx, you may have an idea of where I am going with this. 

If you go to the Acendant Justice forum's, a guy called Mr. Vorocious has some kick ass idea's and knows alot about what's going on.

Post by: Xhan on Dec 03, 2007, 11:38:16 AM
As stated the end of infinity allows John to be anywhere and anywhen, and ALL of earth's colonies are gone...rebuilding would end up with a place much like Marathon.  and that's not a coincidence, and neither is the Dyson SPhere/Onyx, so that statement "marathon is in a different universe" doesn't really matter. I'd rather let Frank O'Connor or Luis WU do the talking.

Thats what I was thinking, but cosidering Bungie isn't making Halo Wars, we can't really blame the developers for that mistake.

Don't waste your time trying to get the META game achievements with other people.

1. Do it by yourself.
2. Equip 4 skulls, the famine, catch, fog, and your choice of either mythic, thunderstorm, or iron.
3. Do the missions on normal.


With these skulls, you have plenty of points to pass each level. Doing it with other people only lessens the chances that you will get enough points, seeing as it splits up your score.

Anyhow, if this a standalone game I actually think it's going to compete well with the regular series.  Putting us in the shoes of the Marines that are trying to survive against the ferociousness of the Covenant.  This is as real as it gets folks.  I know while playing as the Master Chief I wanted to save as many soldiers as I could during the campaign.  Now I get to be one of them.

Halo 3 recon is in fact an expansion to Halo 3 with an expansion of campaign levels and some multiplayer map packs for halo 3.

The game takes place during the events of Halo 2 while master chief is on delta halo (so you wont be seeing master chief in this game)
The campaign will not have its own multiplayer playing as an ODST online BUT there will be 4 player co-op for the campaign levels.
H3R will certainly be a first person shooter (not third person or tactical) but it will have some game play twists as the character has to use stealth in most occasions to take down overwhelming hostiles (since you have no shields or super human strength) also note in the trailer how the ODST is armed with an M7 caseless SMG with a silencer and laser sight targeting so this could mean customization of your well known halo weapons.

Personally, i think the health system will be some what like Call of Duty 4 amd the stealth will be similar to the 'all ghillied up and one shot one kill' levels in CoD4 minus the ghillie suit.

Also playing as an ODST will mean no gravity hammers (too heavy) and no melee for an assault attack but the melee could be used as a stealth tactic such as snapping neck or knocking down from behind etc. and i'm not sure but i think the gravity hammer will be replaced by a combat knife?

I'm sure it's going to have some upgrades to the engine.  Most commercial game engines are tweaked for years as they release new games. (Unreal, Doom, etc etc).

I actually like it.

Bungie have stated that there will 'not' be a Halo 4. At least, they wont be making it anyway. They stated that Recon is their last game.

IMO, I think that a second HaloWars will be made, as a lot could be added.

But, on-topic: If a 4th Halo game was to be made, I wouldn't buy it unless it was forerunner/sentinel or Flood orientated.

I believe a major portion of ODST takes place just after the New Mombasa incident when the human ship follows the covenant vessel to the second Halo ring on Halo 2. Hence the flood couldn't be present as they only find earth 25% through Halo 3.
Title: Re: halo 4????????
Post by: Drago-Morph on Apr 13, 2009, 07:29:15 PM
If a Halo 4 were to be made, it could probably just have the Covenant return, maybe with a couple new species that joined and helped them come back. I seriously doubt ALL the Covenant were killed at the Ark, and if they fought to the death like that, why would they just call it quits? Most likely, they would repopulate for decades and return and fight. Maybe even with some Forerunner Sentinels or something.

Do you know what's wrong with my Halo 3 disc if I try and play campaign on a specific level and it loads to 27% and then goes back to 0% and says "Player failed to load content"?
I can still play Live and Custom Games, just nothing to do with campaign...

I'll say they're milking it when they make six straight games that are the same genre with the same mechanics and gameplay. (Can anyone say CoD?) At least Halo has the dignity to spice things up to keep it a successful game franchise instead of an abused cash-cow, although were it not for Halo Wars being a Strategy game instead of a Shooter, my opinion would be different.

Is it odd that I like the Halo games' campaign? FOr me, that's always been the high-light of the experience (albeit a very short-lived high-light in Halo 3). Not saying you're wrong or anything, but would you mind stating some of the reasons it's so bad?

I've heard that from a lot of people. What makes you think it's Onyx?

Besides, I found a good point on Halopedia:

It is rumored that the planet in the Halo 3 Legendary Ending is Onyx. However, this is contradicting the fact that Onyx was obliterated, leaving behind only the Slipspace rift to the Micro Dyson Sphere, guarded by trillions of Onyx Sentinels.

Here's a topic that is sure to spark some debate.

"Should Halo:Reach be for PC?"

Not a question on whether it will, but rather, should it.

QuoteAnd though the books don't mention the Flood during the fall of Reach, we've seen in Halo Wars that those little rascals tend to pop up everywhere.

NO.

I know this forum is for Halo Reach, but I just had a quick question about Halo 3 ODST. Will there be new maps for this game or will it all be the maps from Halo 3? Not including the three maps for the Firefight Mode? Sorry if this has been discussed or answered already I was just curious.  :)

Believe it or not, there are other modes in the game, which obviously bungie uses unpaid starving monkeys to construct, based on direct comparison.

....

The campaign is fun as hell, Forge mode is simple but great and theatre has made Halo 3 the best Machinima making game available.

Campaign is aborted, and broken, and full of Michael Bay. Fun being a relative thing.

Forge = multiplayer
Machinima = based on multiplayer and pretty much NOT authored by Bungie.

hmm.. sensing a trend.

So, what do you guys think about the Halo series so far. I enjoyed all four games, preordered ODST, and can't wait for Reach. I have read two of the six novels (Fall of Reach and Ghosts of Onyx), and can't wait for the Forerunner Trilogy. I haven't read any of the comics, though I would like to. I think the anime, Halo Legends, looks good so far. And I also can't wait for the Halo Waypoint update on XBox Live. What are your thoughts on Halo?

Can't say when it first came out, I was a fan. Wasn't interested in the story and didn't get into it. Then, one day while I was in the store, I saw the Ghosts of Onyx novel and bought it. I wrapped myself in it. After words I read a couple more (wasn't thrilled with Contact Harvest) and bought the graphic novel. As it stands, I have: First Strike, Ghosts of Onyx, The Graphic novel, Halo 3 and Halo wars. I had Halo, the original, but my brother smashed it. I also have: A Master Chief, an Elite, Cortana and a Hunter on my shelf.

You should really try to get your hands on the first game. In my opinion, that's the best one.

Oh, and you got the ODST helmet by unlocking the Spartan Graduate Achievement (It is awarded when the player completes the requirements for basic training on Xbox Live and reaches the rank of Private.).

You should take a look at this page if you are interested in getting the other armour variants too.

The only reason I own an Xbox - the first or 360 - is because of Halo. I only have the Halo games for 360. I love the franchise. It was one of my three favorite franchises (Aliens/Stargate/Halo). I have read all the novels. I really really enjoy Contact Harvest. I think it's my favorite. But Eric Nylund's stuff is amazing. The Flood is terrible and Cole Protocol is so-so. I can't wait for the Forerunner Trilogy. It should prove to be interesting.

The comics. Fantastic. The graphic novel is really cool. Apart from the last story in it, the art is brilliant. It really is Halo. Uprising was interesting too. As a testing-the-water series, it was good. I just brought the first issue for Helljumper as well which IMHO is looking like it will be simply amazing. The character development in that single issue was amazing.

And Legends. Should be interesting. I don't have much hope for the non-canon story but it should be a fun project.

And ODST! God, I can't wait for it.

Halo is currently probably my favorite sci-fi franchise.  Alien(s) is still my all-time favorite, but I feel the quality of releases coming from that franchise has been pretty low for some time now.

I've been into Halo since I got the first Xbox and played it.  I'm looking forward to ODST and Reach.  I still hope they do a faithful movie at some point too.

I just hate screaming kids who are always swearing and talking like LOL, OMG, and all that. Thats why I don't go into game chat.

unfortunately that's 86% of the players. I can't get into a game without screaming kids yelling words they shouldn't know, who bitch and whine when you beat them, or who camp and spawn kill like no f**king tomorrow. I can't play that game when I'm not in a party or something.

I got issue 2 of Helljumper the other day and it's amazing. The series is fantastic. I can't wait for the conclusion. Also pre-ordered ODST from Play and I'm currently re-playing Halo3. Although I can't play MP 'cause I don't have one of the map-packs and can't really afford it.  :-\

I love Halo, the only thing I disliked were those little evil aliens that are with the covenent. Other then that everything is win. Btw found these renders of how the Chief would look like without any armor, looks pretty cool IMO.

Post by: Corporal Hicks on Aug 29, 2009, 05:23:10 PM
I just hope they condense the story or make it longer then. HW's story felt too epic. The game rushed along trying to keep pace with the story and it didn't work 'cause obviously...it's an RTS and the game is slower.

I think if they do a HW2 it should just be focused around one planet, one campaign kinda thing.

Well at the time this game takes place, I'm pretty sure you'd only be fighting the Elites as enemies for less than half a level, so it'd only make sense to have the Brutes as your enemy.

The Flood was terrible. The Ghosts of Onyx was my first. It was the story in Harvest that annoyed me. As a book, it was well written, but I wasn't fond of the story itself. Mostly it was the reason why the war stared didn't seem right to me.

Yea, your right. From some of the stuff I've been reading online, it has something with the timeline of the game.

Quote from:  Bungie WeeklyMaking the Jump

In the immediate wake of the Halo 3: ODST Trailer, series fans began their frame-by-frame assault, dissecting the footage for any visual leads that could help uncover the mysterious clues hidden in the dark, rain-soaked streets of New Mombasa.  From "hidden dates" and fragmented Superintendent messages to some more obvious and overt looks at the new elements on display like the ODST-customized SMG and vision augmentations, few things were lost on those peering at the trailer through a magnified lens.

But there is one aspect of the trailer and accompanying coverage in particular that has caused a little bit of confusion among Halo aficionados and speculators from around the World Wide Web - the presence of Brute packs patrolling the darkened alleyways of New Mombasa.  And perhaps conversely, the absence of the Elites.

We realize that the Elites are of a fan-favorite, so it's probably wise to set aside your compassion and steel yourself for what is about to come.  There are no Elites to fight in Halo 3: ODST.

Still here?  Good.  Deep breaths.  We wanted to clue you in early so you didn't have a chance to let your expectations wind you into a whipping maelstrom of assumption and conjecture.  Think of this as the intervention portion of this week's update.  Look, we care about you.  We don't like to see you get hurt.

And though we are still several seasons away from Halo 3: ODST's retail launch, we're going to bend a rule for you - just this one time - and provide you with a small snippet of the story timeline coupled with a brief explanation covering why you'll be encountering packs of Brutes when you drop into Halo 3: ODST and explore the dangerous, war-torn streets of New Mombasa, come Fall.

If you've yet to play through Halo 2, hit the brakes and steer clear of this next section.

Along the Path

The following is a cursory exploration of some of the more critical events along the Halo 2 and Halo 3 timelines.  This examination is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather a set of waypoints to guide you along as we look back at key events and characters that influenced and impacted the Covenant schism, circa 2552.


October 20: New Mombasa, Kenya is destroyed by the Slipstream Space Rupture Backlash from the Prophet of Regret's ship.
November 2: The Prophet of Regret's ship and In Amber Clad arrive at Delta Halo.  Prophet of Regret liquidated by SPARTAN-117.
November 3: Prophet of Truth leaves High Charity for Earth in Forerunner dreadnought.
November 8: The Forerunner dreadnought arrives in the Sol system and proceeds to Earth at near relativistic speed.
November 17: The Forerunner dreadnought arrives at Earth. SPARTAN-117 ejects and lands in the Kenyan jungle.

What's written in these few entries is important in the context of understanding the overall story presented in the Halo trilogy.  But what exists between the lines is where you should focus most of your attention.  This is where the majority of the events that unfold during Halo 3: ODST take place.  And it is in also in these moments that the Prophet of Truth did much of his puppeteer's manipulations. The thirteen day span between the dates of October 20th and November 2nd provided the High Prophet with all the time he needed to redeploy Brute-led Covenant forces, their mission objectives relayed sub rosa, into the heart of New Mombasa.

But why Brutes?

In the wake of Regret's shameful retreat from New Mombasa, the Prophet of Truth continued his maneuvering - one eye always on his ultimate goal: his rightful and holy ascension.  For Truth, his own personal passage was paramount.  His Godhood would not be denied.  Everything else was secondary. 

And though Truth's duplicitous scheming doesn't come to full fruition until the Elite Honor Guard's failure to protect the Prophet of Regret affords him with the final leverage needed to appoint the Brutes to the lofty position, his plans were never made in haste.  They were well laid.   When the time came to return his attention to Earth, his expendable regiments needed to be led by Jiralhanae, not Sangheili.

Leaving the Elites to scour Earth in search of a Holy Forerunner relic, and ultimately to uncover the most precious and sacrosanct Forerunner artifact in existence - the very portal that opened upon the Ark itself - would have placed all Truth's aspirations upon the shoulders of a species he had already decided to cast aside, a species splintered by heresy and derision, even amongst their own ranks.

Truth's divisive mandate had been set in motion.  The Elites had exhausted their usefulness to him, they would not be allowed to meddle in his affairs any longer, and he would not place his rightful transcendence into the hands of incompetents.  His word was law.

So the Prophet of Truth deploys Brutes. And the Brutes were eager to prove that their loyalty and battle prowess had earned them a seat at the side of the Hierarchs, as the honored protectors of the sacred Covenant.  Such blind faith and eagerness marked them as near perfect pawns for Truth to sacrifice

I like the trailer.  It goes from showing how the rookies (you) go from being a newb to a skilled veteran.  Then contrasting that change with the new rookie.

Halo 1 and 3 were the best campaigns.  Halo 2 was all about multiplayer.  Based on that, I like Halo 1 and 3 the most.  ODST looks interesting as it seems to have a feeling of revisiting the 2nd game a bit in terms of setting.  I'd love to see a retooled/re-released Halo: Combat Evolved beefed up for HD and online co-op.

Post by: Xhan on Sep 11, 2009, 12:31:32 AM
3 was awful. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwful.

As in they spent how much? awwwwwwful.

Astounding they spent all this money and Microsoft made a giant "does this suck?" facility where they could read your freaking biometrics and they polled and polled and then came out with the exactly worst SP story and thematics possible..

Kinda like when McDonald's spent several million bucks polling folks til the cows came home and then spent even more money developing and launching the McLean, the worst product in the history of McDonald's, ever.

Adding all that HDR and 4 player net code and getting phd's to examine their player kill data to craft the optimum blend of usability in level design was awesome. They just forgot to ask all the people playing the game if the story sucked or the game was fun.

Kinda the main reasons people play games most times.

All that data overkill sure did help MP out though, and that's obviously where the hard work actually went.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Kimarhi on Sep 11, 2009, 01:56:35 AM
Thats what I thought killed KZ2.  All the thought was put into multi.  The story was even more ridiculous than the first and felt tacked on whereas the first felt like a focus with novice scriptwriters.

KZ2 doesn't get burn these days.  My most disappointing purchase on the PS3.  That includes games like haze.  Could not believe how ultimately underwhelming KZ2's single player was.  I know KZ's mp was a somewhat of a surprise hit on the original PS2, but come on, it wasn't THE focus.

I'm thinking of buying an xbox 360 and getting ODST just because I hear you don't have to have played the others to enjoy it and it includes halo 3's strength (multiplay) as well as a skirmish mode.

Like in Halo 1, Halo 2, and Halo 3. Master Chief (And the Spartans in the pre-Halo Wars media) were basically 'Super' marines in some fancy high tech armor. You don't see Master Chief flipping around like a ninja in Halo 1-3 do you?
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Yautja117 on Sep 22, 2009, 01:17:44 AM
But you could only hit enemies with your gun or sword. There was zero hand to hand combat in the games. It taked about it plenty in the novels, Spartans killing enemies without a weapon. Everything in the anime was a hyper version of a martial art. Being as strong and as fast as they are, it makes sense.

Apparently some gameplay footage of Halo: Reach is going to be shown in the Tokyo game show this weekend.
It's on Microsoft's line-up. List is on this link:   By the way i don't know how legit the info is.

^ Cool

Only got to play ODST for about 30 min last night.  I LOVE the atmosphere.  The moody synth music in the dark city reminds me of Bladerunner with some Terminator (1).  Then, going into the flashback fight sequences is pure Halo-esque.  The graphics are pretty but no Gears, Killzone, or Crysis.... but Halo has a distinct look that generally looks clean and crisp.  Same applies here with some nice lighting here and there.

So far, this seems like a Halo game that is much more in-line with Halo 1 than the other sequels.  I'm diggin' it.

Single player isn't bad. I prefer the night portions while the flashbacks are standard Halo stuff that have their occasional fun moments.

One thing that disappointed me is how ODST's are characterized. They just come off as your typical "gung-ho, braggard marine" except these ones have fancy armor. I thought they were supposed to be hardened guys who emote practically nothing cause all their supposed to do is kill and execute; instead we get stock mass-market marine types who bumble about. Their actions aren't a far from slapstick at times.

I plowed through 80% of the campaign with a friend and honestly the story is weak. While I like how the game is set up with flashbacks to your comrade's daytime antics contrasted with the great atmosphere of the night portions, the game lacks a plot with any meat to it. The small plot introduction (the conversation between two military guys) in the games manual sets up some great plot points, but I've got two missions to go and that hasn't even been touched yet. I never feel as though the game is contributing anything aside from giving you more Covenant to shoot at. Perhaps there will be some payoff at the end but honestly I'm a bit disappointed with ODST. I didn't have much expectations going in, so I'm thinking that was a good mindset to be in.

I haven't played Firefight yet, but I can't wait!

Theres this one portion of the game, I think its when you shift back to the Rookie after the ONI site flashback, I looked up and saw the skyline and the first thing that came to mind was Blade Runner. Honestly, the night portions of the game is quite something, I find them so good they make the typical Halo formula of the flashback missions just seem "meh" in comparison.

In Halo 3, the ODST were pretty much your typical gung-ho type, even spouting goofy jokes here and there.  I think it's pretty fun and I love listening to the dialog so far in ODST.  Probably 'cuz it's the Firefly cast.  :P

You know what really ticked me off? Sgt. Forge killing the Arbiter.

Thought the whole combat portion of that scene was a joke.

How does the gameplay really differ from the Master Chief? For all the nonsense I hear Bungie spout, you're basically Halo 1 Master Chief except your shields are now called "stamina".

All the footage I've seen basically shows the ODSTs running around punching 9 foot tall aliens with equal gusto as the heroic Spartan. The same guys who get pwnt almost instantly whenever I fought next to them in the campaign.

The only reason I'm kinda considering giving this a chance is all the "free" maps that I haven't yet gotten...

I had heard at one point some time ago that Reach was on a newly developed engine.  Don't remember where that info came from, but hope it's accurate.  ODST looks great, but that engine is showing its age a bit even with the updates they've done.  My main gripe with ODST's visuals though are the jaggies!  Needs some serious AA.  :P

My brother decided to buy this. Pretty disappointing. The campaign isn't very good and I was really bored most of the way through. Firefight's pretty sweet, though, especially with some buddies. I liked the new gold hunters too I guess.

For the most part the whole thing just felt like a wasted opportunity. Instead of taking the chance and making you feel like those poor guys in the live action trailers, where you're just random joe fighting the tall, super strong alien monsters Bungie goes ahead and makes you do everything the Master Chief could do if not do it better since that visr and the custom weapons made taking out everything pretty easy even on Legendary.

I didn't feel like an ODST, I felt like the Master Chief again. You do everything you were doing in all of the previous games exactly the same way. Heck, I think the ODSTs can actually run with turrets faster than the Elites and Spartans. Quite frankly it's pretty amazing the UNSC didn't win the war by that time. You even

kill a Chieftain with a knife and some buddies in a cutscene where as the Master Chief could get pwned by these guys. Wtf???

I cleared this thing on Legendary in about 4 hours. There's no way this is worth 60$. Maybe the maps are an interesting option, but quite frankly I don't feel tempted to get Live Gold again to play Halo.

Yeah, it's pretty strange that ODST can run with turrets faster than both Master Chief and Arbiter. Before I played it I would have guessed that only Dutch would be able to grab turrets, seeing as how he's the heavy weapons specialist.

Title: Re: Halo

Yeah, I figured.

I too am puzzled at all the things the ODST are able to do. They can rip turrets off, shoot Spartans Lasers, and jump really high. I thought those are only things a Spartan can do. In fact, I specifically recall it being said somewhere that only Spartans can shoot the Spartan Laser. Hence why it's called the Spartan Laser.

Well, you do take more damage at a faster rate. You can't go running into battle and kill everything as easy as you could as Master Chief, but that is really the only difference. I was expecting it to play more as a normal guy, but normal guys can't rip turrets off their stations...

I love the HUD and map stuff.  Nothing really innovative, I just enjoy it in the Halo universe.  The game is not ground-breaking in any regard so far (except maybe that awesome soundtrack), but I think Halo fans will enjoy it.  I really don't feel like I am a Spartan.  When I go into an area, I scan all around looking for enemies before entering because I know if I run right into the middle of an area, a barrage of gunfire will kill me quick... Something I never really cared about with MC.. You could run anywhere w/ MC and still have enough life to get away and try again.  :P

Legendary in 3 was WAY easier than the other 2. The only bottleneck in the game is the patrol with three Wraiths and three Commanders, until you pop the gunner out of the wraiths and all the rest of the squads jump in for free headshots. ><

Yelling at foreigners old people and puppies is a choice.

I'm sure I'll get a face full of this tomorrow as I was responsible for getting all my mates into the game, (ironic for quitting after putting up with three's crap-tastic taped together story) but it seriously sounds like three with target auto designation and a jazz soundtrack. If Bungie has always worked in mind with showing the other side of the coin, they could just as easily have implemented a mode witht he whole squad being with you while you gathered them up as opposed to finding out what happened alone, thus alleviating superman syndrome.

On Legendary, you die a lot faster as an ODST than you do as the Chief, however you have the option of stealthing past patrols as the Rookie which makes it somewhat easier. Brutes are much, much less of a pushover as well. In 3 they made the Covenant more or less a joke, with Flood hordes posing the only real threat. ODST however they tend to slap you up pretty hard on legendary, as your SMG and Pistol tend to do shit all to thier shields. Not to mention the jet pack brutes that pop up later and chase you around the map with thier Fett brand jet backs.

Its cleaner (and some would argue better) but I think they could have still gotten away with using the typical Halo font except with omitting the graphics that fill the letters and just have what Reach has with just a simple outline + filled colour. Smoothing out the corners a bit too would look good but I think the Reach version is too extreme, however I don't mind it.

Prehaps a glitch? Strange stuff happens in Halo. Sometimes, in the level "The Covanent" the corpse of Truth's arm wriggles and...it looks like he's playing with himself. I laughed so hard!

Wave 6 has had some issues, so if you find them, check him out in the case before hand. but yes, the Rookie is very awesome.

No prob. My Elite Shipmaster had some bugs. Some of the paint work was terrible and some of the joints were messed up. But there were some new joints in the head and hands, but getting him to stand was a pain in the ass.

I'd wait. they usually fix things up in running changes. I heard about older ODST's out of the package with swapped limb parts and warpage. I haven't had any problems until now though. The Hunter is quite impressive standing next to the Chief.

More bad news for Series 6: For the Brute Captain, they majorly toned done the paint apps on the Brutes body. The armor looks great, but it really hinders the articulation and the body has very few paint apps. It's been a day and the paint on the claws is peeling and the head only has painted eyes and a hairy strip. Really disappointed McFarlane.

right...


Both halo 1 and 2 had opening areas harder than the ENTIRETY of Halo 3.

Halo 3 has awesome multiplayer and better graphics and that's literally it. Everything else is substandard when compared to previous efforts. Which is ironic considering it was the first one Bungie did relatively deadline free.

Which is why I think Halo 3 is overrated. I remember playing it and the only thought I had was it's basically Halo 2 with better graphics and a few new weapons.

Why no Flood? I mean I know they won't be on Reach considering they weren't in the book (From what I remember), but the flood are not as bad or annoying as everyone makes them out to be.

They aren't "bad" but after three or four games they sure are annoying.

The way they were talking about perks, I'm not sure if they meant COD styled perks. I was thinking more along the lines of things picked up on the map, like Halo 3's equipment.

After doing a little research, that is not a needler splaser, but a needler carbine. And the perk system is not like COD, but picked up, kind of like Halo 3's equipment. The three shown were halogram (creates a copy of yourself to confuse the enemy), sprint (allows you to run), and the third one escapes my mind at the moment.

Edit: the third one makes you invisible, but while invisible you cant use your radar and you cant hear what people are saying. Im pretty sure I remembered it correctly :D

Halo was the first game I got on my Xbox back in 2001. I no longer own it, but I loved the single-player as well as the multiplayer, and to this day I'd say it had the best story of the series. Never really got in to Halo 2, I mean I never even owned it: I borrowed it from a friend for a couple of weeks and never really enjoyed it; well no way as near as the original. Halo 3 was the first game I got for my Xbox 360 last year, and it remains the best game for online play in my collection, the single player is ok as well, but not as good as the original. Don't own nor played Halo Wars or ODST. Not interested in Wars, but ODST being a expansion pack to Halo 3, looks to be my style.

This is almost exactly how I feel about the Halo games, except that I do own Halo 2 (but did not enjoy it that much either).  And, that I do own ODST and did enjoy it.

Bungie will release info when they're ready.  Being a Halo fan from the beginning and as much as it pains me to wait, I've made peace with their secretive ways.  The long wait makes the reveal all the more awesome in my opinion.  On another Halo note, anyone who hasn't read the books, read em, you're definitely missing out.  Also, check out the Halo Encyclopedia from DK Books.  It chronicles everything from the Forerunners' emergence and back story, to the end of the war with the Covenant.  Without a doubt a bible for true fans.

Troll is such a loosely defined term you can pretty much call anyone a troll for any myriad of reasons... making it more or less a joke. You are of course entitled to your opinion...but your post was simply "It's crap." Your later posts explaining why you felt that way should have been included in the original. Otherwise it just comes off as random animosity.

I'm kinda hoping for a video.I want to keep gameplay to a minimum until the beta, so it will be a little more surprising!

I think theres so much riding on Halo that makes it not as skillful as it could be, like low gravity, slow movement mechanics, rechargeable shields, auto aim, 360 degree motion trackers, and an overdose in hitscan weapons.

Not saying the game takes no skill, its just that its scale of skill is so tiny I cant stand to watch tournaments based on it. CoD and Gears are the same way for me, I cant stand watching competetive play in those.
Title: Re: Halo 3 Montages!
Post by: MadassAlex on Dec 07, 2009, 12:26:10 AM
I can never understand why CoD gets grouped in with those.

CoD is perfect on a mechanical level, and its gameplay design punishes your mistakes rapidly and indiscriminately. There are no particularly dominant weapons, either.

I simply said I cant stand watching CoD professionals duke it out because their performance just doesnt attract me, I put it in no such catagory of the difference in skill between Halo. Infact I dont even think I mentioned anything about skill on CoD or Gears.

I don't believe that is Kelly, as Kelly is part of Blue Team, not Noble Team. She is listed as Kat on halopedia. Plus, she has a prosthetic arm, which Kelly does not have. I didn't notice it the first time I saw the trailer, but if you look again, it is there.

Both 2 and (to a lesser extent) 3 are like corridor shooters compared to Combat Evolved. Remember the "Halo" and "The Silent Cartographer" levels? They had that wonderful sense of scale that the sequels just couldn't match.

It wasn't open ended, but it was far from confined.

My point is that there was this sense of wonder when you first get onto the Halo that carried over to the other levels, you had the feeling that there was so much to take in which was lost in Halo 2 aswell as 3 to a certain extent.This is just one of the problems i had with Halo 2 as well as a few other problems that prevented it from beating the original.

Right but that doesn't mean much to me if the sense of scale isn't there because of the smaller and much more linear levels, i was playing Halo for a year and a half after a bought it, can't say the same about Halo 2 or 3.

Lets hope Reach is going back to the originals roots and judging by the leak GI scans its looking just that.

I started the series on Halo 3 (though I played two at a friends house when it came out). I loved the story so much that I bought 1 and 2. Then I purchased Wars the day it came out and preordered ODST. I'm going to preorder Reach once they announce editions/preorder promos.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Razz on Jan 19, 2010, 10:26:23 PM
Ok i copied all this info from the Neogaf thread about Reach concerning new info from the latest GI magazine.

Settings/Locations

    * "Darker tone overall" - "Things aren't as bright. But we're not going for that desaturated modern war movie vide either"
    * Huge scale combat, new push on big battles
    * New perspective. removed sweeping camera shots replaced by cinematic tone, which evokes up close and personal war journalism
      Ie, airborne, shot - a ship is filming it from above, ground shots bump and jar like being held in the hands of a runner
    * Grittier cinematic sensibility extends to encompass wider character and plot development
    * Rugged and harsh wilderness filled with towering mountains and weather beaten forests
    * Not a retelling of Fall of Reach
    * "We definitely want to take a more serious approach to the franchise"
    * "We wanted to delve a little deeper into our characters themselves ... That they're not perfect - they're susceptible to damage."
    * "We're bringing some of those things back that encouraged a little more exploration, like wondering where that health pack is"
    * Set days before invasion of Reach with an advance invasion force and continues up to full blown invasion
    * Noble team investigates trouble on Reach, rebel human Insurrectionists suspected
    * Reach features various natural and artificial environments, ambient life and cultures
    * Reach transforms from living planet through stages of it's death throes and ultimate fall
    * Secret ONI hard sites, early colonist homes, gritty industrial locations, sprawling vistas featured


Gameplay

    * Health system more similar to Halo:CE than Halo 3:ODST
    * Assassinations, melee executions on unaware enemies from behind
    * Armour abilities, seeming replace equipment, each Spartan can only carry one at a time, governed by a recharging meter. Sprint and Active Camo confirmed.


Multiplayer

    * Feature parity with Halo 3

Weapons/Vehicles

    * New DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), single shot, fits between Sniper and BR, medium to long range but still deadly at short
    * New Needler Rifle, mid range headshot weapon, combining needler (following) mechanics with more accuracy and flexibility, three hits combine and explode
    * Returning weapons include AR, Plasma Pistol, Sword, Needler, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle
    * Spike and Flame grenades removed
    * New air vehicle, the Falcon (featured in trailer)
    * Warthogs return
    * Civilian vehicles usable
    * Spirits, Covenant dropships featured in Halo:CE return


Enemies

    * "We're taking a meaner approach to the Covenant overall."
    * Covenant enemies now speak their own languages, in low guttural voices (Shakespearian fans am disappoint)
    * New enemy, Skirmishers, cunning enemies that hunt in packs, visually related to Jackals
    * Elites are back in command of Covenant forces


Engine Tech

    * Refined approach to distance and detail
    * Allows dramatically expanded number of enemies, light sources and other details
    * Described as "imposter tech"
    * Level of Detail (LOD) system allows building of bigger and more populated spaces for exploration
    * Distant objects are rendered at low poly with cheaper shaders, ie "imposters"
    * Imposter look great at distance and detail increases the closer you get to them
    * Less chance of pop-up and stippling as environmental geometry, plants, buildings, enemies or anything else can be placed into the visual field at the same extreme distances without profound hit to system performance
    * At extreme close range items can be rendered with incredible detail, ie, a wall was shown from inches away with tiny rivet features in the metal popped on the screen with perfect clarity
    * Imposter system indirectly frees up memory which can be devoted to other technical aspects
    * Lighting being one of those aspects
    * From Halo 3's 3 or 4 light sources, Reach's engine presents 20 to 40 dynamic lights at the same time
    * Weapon effects benefit greatly from the improved lighting, ie Plasma bolts moving across the screen with their own independent light source, casting colour and shadow across the environment
    * More improved lighting examples, a Warthog gun firing at a wall with hundred of real sparks flying from the stone, the particles interact not just with the wall geometry, but with it's normal map additionally, the particles scatter down onto a nearby vehicle and react with its curves and lines, the sparks bounce and flow along the tiny textured surface
    * New weather system bringing rain to many missions, adding to the atmosphere
    * The sky is no longer a sky-box like past Halo games, it's a true space in the overall environment, ie a ship descends from orbit and towards you, you can watch it make the full descent as a real object would fall
    * Motion capture heavily implemented, a majority of the cut-scenes based on captured actions
    * On-screen characters exhibit an animation technique known as variable gait blending, when a character changes speed, ie walking to running and vice versa, the animation of walking blends seamlessly into running and then sprinting, also, when turning on a pivot, players no longer stay still and magically turn in a circle, they realistically move around the pivot with their bodies and lifting their feet in reaction
    * Bungie hired company Image Metrics to aid with human faces, which now appear dramatically more lifelike than Halo's traditional potato faces


Lone Wolf/Main Character

    * Impressive list of combat record accomplishments
    * Strikes out more often than his superiors might like
    * "Background shrouded in some pretty dark secrets"


Noble Team

    * Spartan III's, except Jorge-052 (II)
    * Keep surviving suicide missions
    * When one members goes MIA, another is brought in
    * Carter-259 leader, Kat-320 second in command, both original team veterans and share a bond (ie they have never been replaced in Noble Team)
    * Jorge-052 is the only Spartan II on the team. the bigger, bulkier heavy weapons specialist and has survived countless battles
    * Emile-239, skull helmet wearing silent type, let's his actions speak for him
    * Jun-266, thoughtful, taciturn sniping soldier

Both 2 and (to a lesser extent) 3 are like corridor shooters compared to Combat Evolved. Remember the "Halo" and "The Silent Cartographer" levels? They had that wonderful sense of scale that the sequels just couldn't match.

It wasn't open ended, but it was far from confined.

I agree about 3 but in 2 if you really wanted to it was easy to explore considering how huge the levels were and if you knew how to get out of them. Like delta halo and others.

Halo: ODST had some of the sexiest music I've ever heard from a game. Seriously, the Saxaphone solo in "Deference for Darkness"? Run through the streets at night- in real life. The closest I ever got to that was, I was drinking some icy cold water after jogging, and it got dark out.. then some rain started coming down but it was light, and warm.. so pleasant. I was listening to my iPod, so obviously I decided to turn this song on. It was A-mazing. One of the most perfect, and memorable moments of my life. The cold water, the cool night, the warm & light rain with the street lights... oh, it was perfect, and I could only wish that kind of sensation to all others.

Wow, that got a bit off topic, but it was to amazing to not share.

To me, it's all in the lighting. More specifically, the light shines on the armor exactly like that of Gears of War, with certain areas seeming almost highlighted. I really hope they keep the smooth sheen of the Covenant armor the same- they already took away their english dialoge.. which I understand, is a call-back to Halo: CE, but really, every other Halo game had them speaking english, I (and many others) will sorely miss the badass voices of the Elites in exchange for a "wort wort wort" here and there.

I still really don't see why that has anything to do with Gears just because the lighting shines on the armor, and i'm re-playing Gears 2 just before i typed this so i really still don't see the comparison.

I'm gonna miss the funny Grunt lines, but I can understand they decided to take it out for the sake of making a much more serious story.

Assassination moves look like an interesting concept. It's probably going to work like AvP's stealth kills.

Also, permanent armor habilities such as Active Camo ? This is going to bring MP to a whole new level.

Thats not strictly true, any company apart from Bungie or 343 have to abide by the Halo Bible before making any game in the Halo series (e.g. Halo Wars) so in a sense yes Halo wars is a Halo game and is still Cannon.

Also Legends is overseen by 343 so yes thats another true Halo cannon there.

I dunno, Halo Wars and Legends just doesn't feel like Halo to me... I mean, just because Bungie never emphasized on "flying spartan space-fighter jets", doesn't mean it should fit into the Halo-verse. I simply find that Halo Wars and Legends are disgraces to the Halo Franchise. But again, that's my opinnion.

And when the Elites started speaking English in Halo 2, I actually took them more seriously. A LOT more seriously. That's actually what made me think they were so amazing. And they occasionally said something funny, but when they said things like "He's over there!" or "You will die by my blade, demon!" (actual Halo 2 quotes), it was just really cool to hear, and somewhat alarming. The only thing cool about the Elites now is the fact that they stand up-right. Now they are just blood thirsty barbarians, and every real Halo fan knows that that is so out of place.

Now they are just blood thirsty barbarians, and every real Halo fan knows that that is so out of place.

In Halo: Reach, bungie wants to bring back the feeling of mystery and intimidation that the player recieved in Halo: Combat Evolved, they want the Sangheili to be the tall, relentless, scary warriors that the first game depicted them as, and IMO... I think this new design works. It's different, yes, but when you're playing Reach, and you see a Zealot like that charging after you, I'm pretty sure you'll have the same, if not more intense, reaction of freaking out and just unloading your clip and hoping to god that that badass elite dies. Also, the Sangheili shouting, "He's over there!" and "You will die by my blade, demon!" was cool and all, but you have to consider the cannon, something Bungie is VERY nit-picky about. In the first game, you couldn't understand any of the Covenant, the UNSC just didn't have the technology for it, and Halo: Reach is a prequel... meaning even less technology (even though there's not that great of a time-difference).

A third thing I wanna point out is that your saying the Elites are just going to be blood thirsty barbarians, you cannot honestly say that... there hasn't even been gameplay of the Sangheili yet. They may look more intimidating, but that does not mean Bungie is going to recreate them as the Jiralhanae (brutes). The Sangheili are smart, the Sangheili are honourable and highly respectable as warriors. Bungie knows that, hell, they CREATED the story, and they won't turn the Sangheili into mindless barbarians.

Ummmm ok.

I dislike the fact they spoke english in H2 because it made them less of a villain/ less intimidating and slightly more human.They were blood thirsty barbarians in all of the games (apart from 3 of course).

So yay that they are taking the Elite back to Halo CE roots and making them more of an alien threat with their own Language, just as the way its meant to be. :)

I'm pretty sure the reason Bungie is making them the 'Wort wort' Elites again is to show that they're the big baddies again. In Halo 2 (sorta) & Halo 3, they became heroes.

I can't wait for Reach, especially since I'm getting bored of Halo 3. Once I get all the achievements in ODST, I'll probably be done with Halo until Reach comes out. Until then it'll be me, MW2, Mass Effect 2 & AVP.  ;D

I don't think hearing the not hearing Elites speak English in the first game had anything to do with technology (there was a miniscule time difference between all 3 games; neither had enough time to actually create that kind of technology). Even in Halo Wars (which is official canon), the humans were able to understand all Covenant, and that game took place about 25 years before Halo Reach, were they now cannot speak English. So really, that makes Halo Combat Evolved the odd man out.

I might be a bit fierce about how I'm tackling this issue that I have, being a massive fan of the Covenant. For me, the Arbiter's inclusion in Halo 2 is what really got me hooked to the Halo story. I've read all of the books and graphic novels.. I just really wish they kept that bit of familiarity in the Elites (the deep human voices), and kept everything just like what they are now (in Halo Reach).

Well, according to THIS (http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Covenant_Languages), apparently I was wrong about it having to do with the technology, and it is more so just for the convenience of the player.

QuoteThe languages in their original form are heard in Halo: Combat Evolved. In Halo 2, their words are translated for the convenience of the player.


However still, I don't see how the Sangheili speaking their native language, and us not being capable of understanding them, is a bad thing. I love Halo BECAUSE of the Sangheili, hell, I lead an all-Elite XBL clan, and believe me, I would be very much pissed if Bungie portrayed them wrongly (I officially hated Halo: Legends after that piece-of-shit interpretation of the Sangheili, 'The Duel' came out)... but I feel that without their language being translated, it gives them more of that mystery Halo: CE originally had; that feeling of, "who are they" and "what are they saying?" IMO, the Sangheili were more "Elite" in Halo: CE, than they were in Halo 2 and 3. I mean sure, they definitely had more character built in them during the sequels, something that dragged me into the franchise, but they were supposed to be the "new good guys" you could say. Bungie has the right idea about resurrecting the idea of the original Elite, and now that the Sangheili are the main villains again, bringing back that feeling of fear and mystery that was eminent during Combat Evolved, is a good move.

Agreed 100% here, glad the Elites seem to be more of a truly evil villain and bungie are taking them in the right direction of that by making them not speak english too. :)

Except when the Sangheili saw humans refusing to give up, they questioned how honorable the war was, as a race. They were never barbarians to begin with. Egotistical, proud, and out and out ruthless, yes. Brutes ENJOY abusing other races. Rather large gap between the two, which is why they don't get along.

Elites are the best and I love that they are going back to "Wort Wort Wort!" Pure win.

I was just reading the Reach Hub over at Game Informer and I noticed that in the Noble team profiles, they discuss interesting points of their armour. Like the Knife on Emile or the Camo on Jun. One really telling feature was that they don't point out anything on the Lone Wolf. I know they have been talking about being able to customize your player through the Multi-player and campaign, but it looks like it will be more than just color and shoulder pads. It will be cool to see if there are options that effect gameplay.

I like the Elites as heroes more, but it makes sense for this sequel. But 5 bucks says they have an actual language & we only hear 'Wort wort' as an easter egg.

The Sangheili often possessed great admiration for  any of the foes they faced in battle, and humanity indeed was just this case. It was to the Sangheili's surprise, in fact, that humanity was not drafted into the Covenant, as the UNSC provided a fairly well fight and refused to surrender... unfortunately the Sangheili did not understand this until the Prophets were revealed as liars, covering up the fact that humanity ARE Forerunner descendants.

As for the Sangheili vs. Jiralhanae, the two never got along from the very begining... primarily for the fact that, as you stated, the Brutes were bloodthirsty and barbaric; however, the Sangheili also have a tendency to view every other race under their own... which you can't really blame them for. Lol. The Brutes always felt they were mistreated, and being held at a level possibly even under the Kig-yar (Jackals), they were quite jealous of the Sangheili... immediately creating tension between the two races.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Danger Close on Feb 03, 2010, 07:52:09 PM
I would love to see both Elites and Brutes as enemies. But in different roles. Having the Elites in charge with a few brutes in toe would make for some interesting battles.

Imagine being attacked by a pack of suicide Grunts, then flanked by Skirmishers, only to evade sniper fire from Jackels, as you pick off Buggers, catch your breath just in time to duck a Brute hammer as an Elite Captain unleashes his sword ... Win!

Is that date confirmed? I'm personally a HUGE fan of the entire series, though I haven't read Contact Harvest.

The online play is enthralling, I can't put the controller down.

On a side note; I help run an Xbox Live clan, we center around Halo 3, but we have branches in COD and various other games, if anyone's interested feel free to PM me for details.

There's probably no way I'm getting it before April, and even if I do, I have no idea if it will even play on my 360, seeing as I have an Elite and I've heard that old Xbox games don't work on the Elite.

I thought 'Halo: CE' was the utter best. The feeling of complete hopelessness that's always in the background, as you know you're on Halo without a proper ship, the overpowering strength of the Combine, and the scale, which I think is just so unique; On the ground it looked liked an all-out war, and yet it was only being fought between the rag-tag, practically homeless crew of one human ship and the crew of one covenant ship.

I loved every campaign so far. The story is just amazing. Thats why i love the books so much (almost done with Evolutions.) I'm definatly biased toward this, but I like Halo 3s campaign the best, just because it is what got me into the series. It was the reason I got my XBox, and the reason I got CE, 2,Wars, ODST, and pretty soon Reach.

Also, Legends is out today. I'm going to have it in a few hours. Can't wait to watch the rest of the episodes. It is no where close to as good as the books, but still verry entertaining while adding to the universe (based on what i saw on Waypoint).

I found it so very disappointing that no other Halo game ever made it close to Halo 2's Covenant story telling- I was actually fairly pissed off when I found NONE of this kind of thing in Halo 3. And now, they are venturing even farther away from it with Halo: Reach. I have no problems with a more human story- but really, the Covenant side to the story is what gripped me with Halo's story (if not Halo 1's mystery). Just everything about this kind of thing in Halo 2 strikes a chord with me, and leaves me begging for more.

From The Arbiter and R'tas's intial tention to their slow transformation to brotherhood (I found that happened right as they were going to enter The Library on that transport platform, to the shocking betrayal of the Prophets (which had so many different layers connecting with Master Chief's story too).
It was all just so damn great, and I personally didn't find anything wrong with the Covenant missions. Halo 2's story was (unfourtunately) one of a kind- a kind which I would kill to see come up again in another Halo game.

I wouldn't mind a whole elite game. But alot of reviewers disliked the Arbiter and his arc. Called it "the crap bits." I'd like to see more of R'tas. I find his character as interesting or maybe even more so than The Arbiter's.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Space Sweeper on Feb 28, 2010, 06:03:34 AM
Yeah- the reviews are mostly hypocritical dumbasses; in Halo 2, they criticized the Arbiter sections (which I thought were amazing, and brilliant), and then in Halo 3, when they removed that part of the story, they started bitching.

On a some-what un-related note, what was your favorite Halo novel? Mine would probably have to be 'The Cole Protocol'. I don't really think of saying 'The Fall of Reach' because, that is a classic among fans, so it doesn't really need to be said.

Another Elite I found amazing was Zamamee- he was sooo awesome! I loved his little back and forth relationship with Yayap. My Xbox Live Gamertag is actually Zamamee 569 (the 569 isn't random- at least to me, it isn't).

I loved the Arbiter. Kieth David nailed the character! But I disliked his Halo 3 redesign and wish he wouldn't have had to play second fiddle. It reduced the character to a side kick. Favorite novel? Damn, that's hard! Probably The Fall of Reach or Ghosts of Onyx. I want a novel that tells what happens after Halo 3 and what happened to the Spartans trapped in the Shield world.

I liked the Arbiter levels a lot. A game from the Elites perspective would be great. The novels do a great job of exploring their culture.

And my favorite novel? I like all 7 so far, its really hard to choose. Maybe Ghosts of Onyx, Fall of reach, or Evolutions. Not entirely sure.

And I know a lot of you like the elite culture, but how interested are you in brute culture? I loved the directions the authors took the brutes in Contact Harvest and Stomping on the Heals of a Fuss.

I really enjoyed 'First Strike', maybe even more than 'Fall of Reach'. It added so much more mystery to the series by introducing the floating engineer aliens. It effectively bridged the first two games magnificently, and it even introduced the Arbiter (Through dialogue). A truly awesome book.

I didn't like the direction Bungie took with Halo: ODST. Seemed more like DLC than a full game, and yet it was 60 bucks.
I'm really hoping that Halo: Reach doesn't suck a fat one like ODST did. I'm a huge fan of the franchise and I don't wanna see it go downhill.

ODST technically was an expansion running on Halo 3s engine with added features. It was great and I am extremly happy with my purchase, but Micro$oft shouldn't have charged $60 for it.

Reach is gonna be a full game on its own engine with its own multiplayer and many new features.

I personally loved ODSTs storyline. The campaign was a little shorter then Halo 3 on normal (I dont know about the higher difficulties). Instead of a typical Halo multiplayer, you get a really fun gametype called Firefight. You are basically trying to hold out  against unlimited waves of covenant. You can have 1-4 people playing. Skulls are constantly being turned on and off, changing gameplay.

You also get a second disc called Halo 3 Mythic. This disc contains the Heroic, Legendary, Cold Storage, Mythic, and Mythic II map packs.

Ummm Reach is prequel and not a spin off, besides considiring how Halo 3 ended i doubt a 4th game would be possible and yes i remember the true ending but that doesn't mean anything.

Halo Wars wasn't done by Bungie, do some research.


Right how would they be a Halo 4 considering the 3rd game pretty much tied everything up?

-Spoilers-




The Covenant is no more, the flood is destroyed, MC and cortana are left floating through space with an uncertain fate. So there is very little to nothing for a 4th Halo to go on.

I've always wanted to see the battle for Reach as its been often mooted in the series and in the Books the most devastating battle for the UNSC.

So Yeah Reach looks to be the best in the series, hopefully better than CE even.

Besides 343 hasn't really announced much since being around for a year, aren't they really for publishing other stuff, dvds/comics etc?

Spoiler
In the Legendary ending of Halo 3, they showed the Master Chief's half of the Forward Unto Dawn headed towards a Forerunner planet. Any future Halo games involving the Master Chief might involve a Forerunner world, and hence would probably a LOT different from the earlier Halo games. I would imagine, however, that it wouldn't be called Halo simply because of the lack of Halos. :P

Not saying I approve (or disapprove) of the games going in that direction, but that's likely what they'd do.

I'm not a big fan of the Halo series...but Reach has definitely sparked my interest. The incredible amount of options being included with the game, and eventual DLC looks uber promising.  That and I love the old school Mark V armor, and Elites. Glad to see a return to the roots with all the modern sensibilities..... and Forge.

Mark IV is the armor in Halo Wars, Mark V is the armor in Halo: CE, Mark VI is the armor in Halo 2 and Halo 3.

I know, but none of the armor in any of the trailers looks like Mark V to me, hence why I thought it was Mark IV. ;)

It's none of those. It's variations of Spartan III armour, only Spartan IIs can wear MJOLNIR. There's only one II in the game, Jorge, and you can't play as him.

The Spartan IIIs were given the same augments as the Spartan IIs (with the exception of Gamma company), so they can wear MJOLNIR. They just aren't normally given it because it's FAR more expensive than the SPI armor. Besides, it's not really Halo without energy shields. :P

IMO, Halo is a real shooter. COD is no fun at all. People tell me its because I'm bad at it (which I am), but even if I was good, its just not fun. I'm not super good at Halo, and I die more than I kill, but the game is sooooo fun.

Played some Custom Games today with Bone Crusher, who doesn't visit here very often. He has this 'Jenga' map, you're all on a floating platform on Standoff, hovering over the cliff. There are gravity cannons all aimed at you, with a variety of nasty scenery ready to be launched at you by an angry zombie, at least I imagine him to be angry. He is throwing forklifts and radio antennas at you so you must have pissed in his cereal or something, anyway, the aim of the game is to stay alive on board this floating platform of doom (which gets weaker and weaker as more and more debris are thrown at you, it's made of barricades you see).

It's very fun. ;D

I played Halo 2 online today. For the first time.  :D

I thought - Hell, it's now or never; and it was fun to see where it all began (apart from the hour it took to download the compulsory, five year old map packs), and it is sad to see it and everything else old Xbox Live wise get shut down. Forever.

The music that plays at the end of Alien 3 springs to mind...

I have to agree, that was a brilliant deconstruction of DBZ-style anime.

But the rest of the movie (?) took itself far too seriously and hit you over the head far too much with its morals. Any goddamned cartoon that out-and-out tells me what I can think and what I should feel can go f**k itself, frankly. And as much as I think pretty women are brilliant, Legends seemed to think that using one was an automatic pass to audience-sympathyville.

So essentially the whole thing assumed I was shallow and tried to tell me what to think. Not even hipsters are this f**king pretentious.

Nope, there's a promotion running to get it on. A "backdoor" of sorts.

People with Halo 3: ODST are the only ones getting the Beta, unless you're one of the few Xbox Live members who get selected randomly to participate.

Worth buying if it weren't $60. More like a $30 game. Perhaps a rental.

I really enjoyed it, it's very different from Halo 3 but it's not for everybody and I've known people who hated it, so if I were you, I would rent it first and see if you like it.

I actually like the SP campaign in ODST much more than H3's, mostly because i just can't stand the flood and i enjoy battling covie scum in the streets etc more often than other levels in the previous games.

Im w/ u man, ODST is my fav halo game because well playing as MC is cool and all but I always thought it would be cool playing just a regular soldier fighting the covenant. Also firefight is a ton of fun could spend hours playing that and I could care less about the 2nd MP disc w/ all the mp maps known to man. Not a fan of the online. Having said that I do think Halo:Reach is gonna kick some serious ass between the new loadouts, re-designed weapons and armor abilities not to mention the cool story of how reach actually fell, just a win win imo.

Yeah a little bit, for starters you cant jump like 50 feet in the air and there's health pick ups. It feels a little different but it's pretty much your standard halo experience through and through. Should check it out, imo I kinda like it better than the previous halos'.

If you cant make up your mind check out this vid review from GT

Doom, since you seem to be enjoying 3 and getting ODST, have you played Halo Wars? As a Halo fan I would recommend it. Before Wars I  have never played an RTS in my life, so you don't need to be an RTS fan to get into the game, but it should be great if you are one.

I just finished Halo 3. Again: fun, but nothing special. Certainly not like Halo 2 was so I give it an 8/10. Good to know Chief survives. Not going to play Wars; I heard it was terrible. Besides, I'm not a fan of console-based RTS games. Can't play one without a mouse.

I've only heard average to good reviews on Halo Wars. The only people that seemed to hate it the people that thought OmG!!1111!!!! NO MASTUR CHEEF????/??!? And for it to work on the XBox, the controls were easily simplified. Oh well, we all have our own opinions.

Might as well chime in with a bit of first hand knowledge about Reach. Suffice to say, it's f**king awesome. It's essentially the best of Halo 3 and Halo 1 combined, with a ton of new elements to improve them both. The gameplay has it's kinks, but nothing that won't be worked out by the time the full game rolls around. The melee is no longer a go-to attack; it must be used sparingly, as damage no longer transfers. It's a dangerous proposition, because if they have shields, then you'll end up looking like a fool while they capitalize on your momentary inability to follow-up. The battles are much more versatile now, what with armor-locker's getting people's attention and the cloaked guys coming up behind, the jet packs raining death from above. The new weapons are great additions, and they all have a very balanced feel. In Halo 3, the only weapons I'd ever see were the Battle Rifle, or if you didn't start with that, the Battle Rifle and Assault Rifle. The most common weapons are still the Assault Rifle and Pistol, but only because those are the most common starting weapons. I always see a variety, and rarely run into the same weapon twice in a short period of time.

Yeah thats one thing that bugs me, I heard somewhere that the game modes are on a scheduale and not all are playable on certain days. I also thought I heard that the beta itself is on scheduale too like if you missed out playing on a certain time then you gotta wait till the next day or something.

Playing as the Elites is definitely cool, but it is insane! It seemed a lot more fast paced to me, than playing as Spartans.

Is it that surprising?  Looks really nice and clean but nothing's going to blow you away when compared to Halo 3 and ODST.  At least on multiplayer...  I was playing on a projector though so I'm sure to really compare, I'd need to play it on a regular sized screen.

I don't know what you're talking about, maybe something's wrong with the projector, but this game is miles away from Halo 3.

I hope they beef up the weapon selection. Halo 3 might not have had many useful weapons, but the variety was there. Other than that, Reach is one of the greatest console shooters I've played.

How the hell do you assassinate someone? Ive hit X, B and Y and nothing happend. Do you hold the button or something? Other than that its pretty fun, the new weapons are fun as hell once you get the hang of 'em. Stalker is my fav AA and I cannot stand f#$king jetpacks, the first match I played the whole team just camped on a building acting like Ironman and shit. Its cool though I enjoyed sniping em' outta the sky w/ the new needler rifle. Got some cool pics too.

Had to change the control scheme to "Recon" just to be able to function properly. Other than that I'm liking it okay. Kinda annoyed with some things like how people can just deploy the shield and wait on a teammate to come wreck your shit, and I don't like how Stealth f**ks your radar up the ass, but I do like that the Plasma Rifle is actually good, the pistol is on the way to being good again, Jetpacks are fun, and I like the Sword map.

Definiately Halo. I used about half a clip on a Spartan's head and he was down.

My favourite loadout is Jetpack, I love getting the drop on people and having mid-air battles with other Jetpack players, melee battles in the air is suprisingly funny, especially if you win. Their body just falls and falls until- THUD. :D

Guard AKA Invincibility, is useless. My first day playing the Beta I took an enemy's shield down, and he used the Invincibility and couldn't move. I casually walked behind him, as his ability wore off I assassinated him. Another case where it was useless was my brother, on Sword Base, was crossing a bridge and two enemies came from each side of the bridge, he activated his Invincibility they just stood there until it wore off, and then proceeded to just shoot the crap out of him as soon as it ended.

Awesome game, just I think sprint and guard are useless loadouts.

Nope, definitely nothing wrong with the projector.  The game is an improvement, but not the "miles" you speak of.  There's some new tech like motion blur, AA, ambient occlusion, and running slightly higher res (though still not true 720p), but like I said before, nothing is going to "blow you away".  That's okay though.  I've always loved the look of Halo's clean lines and crisp color.

It's still roughly half a year to release, so I'm sure some more upgrades will come, but claiming Reach is miles away from Halo 3/ODST is stretching it.... for miles.  :)

The guy you were playing was a retard, you can choose which way you're facing when you come out of 'Guard mode'. It also recharges your shields when you come out of it. Hardly useless.

And sprint is by far one of the most useful. It's the most effective way to get to those power weapons quickly.

Yellowish field means low shields I think.

I love it too, but I prefer Invasion Slayer. For some reason on regular invasion, my team never wants to work together. And the one time I came close to winning Invasion as an Elite, my partner team killed me while i was carrying the memory core so that he could get the game winning points. Five feet from the objective marker, Just my luck.

The vehicle controls are actually really good. If you take time to master them, then they work like a charm. I was a CTF menace because I knew how to handle a Warthog nicely.

I liked the Flood levels. It offered a really different play style; one second you're ducking behind cover and having firefights with your enemies, the next second you're desperately mixing movement, grenades, and aiming to take down the hordes charging you. I found to to spice up Halo considerably.

This link shows the new cover for The Fall of Reach.

The novel was official cannon. In came out just around the same time to help premote the game. The Fall of Reach and the events that played out have long been cannological. The first game takes place after Reach, so why are there new weapons and aliens? The re-write is to cover their ass and say "no...this is what it was really like."

But the story is still considered cannon and they're chaning it because their new game says different. They're just covering their butts and making money. The Cole Protocol just talks about Spartan Gray Team and Captain Keyes. Btw, I'm wonder: How the hell is it going to make sense, having brand new Aliens and Weapons in the story?

I don't even see how Halo Reach is going to break The Fall of Reach's canon. One takes place in space, the other on land. Sometimes I really hate Micro$oft.

Still, I don't see it. First Strike is about a completely different group of Spartans holding out under ground. The guys in Halo Reach can either die, fly off the planet, or go into hiding, and First Strike will be fine.

The only thing I think that is milking the franchise is releasing the three old books. I don't want those changed just so Micro$oft gets more money, I mean so canon errors are fixed...

None of the games have milked the series so far. We had an epic TRILOGY (Halo Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3), so one could expect three games from that. We had a spin off (Halo Wars) which was done in a completely different style while staying true to the series we know and love. We had an expansion (Halo 3: ODST), which people should be happy for, but instead complain about. And now we are getting a new game in the series (Halo Reach) which follows the formula of the trilogy, and looks GREAT! so far.

It's a game that has a huge, rabid fan base. The fact that MW2 fans payed $15 for three new maps and two remakes should tell you your chances of preordering Legendary.

Well why bother posting in a Halo thread if you dislike the series? That would be like me posting in a Mario thread to vent my hatred for the series but i don't because there isn't any point in me doing so plus i know there is as many people who love it aswell as those who think its overated but whatever.

You'll have to watch the 40 minute epic, Arby 'n' the Chief: Endgame to find out why.

Which is also where the series should have ended, but now that it's all gone back to the original creator (there was an ill-judged In L.A. season that changed a lot of things) I'm looking forward to the rest of this season.

I don't know if you follow Jon's update blog, but he takes more time now, and lays out what the season will be like before he does anything else now (as what he does with 'One Life Remaining', what some people (including me) call the best Halo 3 machinima yet). So that means no last minute writing. Which really showed in the fast and hilarious back-and-forth Chief and Arbiter had in the last episode!  :D

I've gotta say, my favorite episodes are 'Party' and the Movie.. aside from the LA episodes, I love all of them.

Yeah, I check his blog every now and again. I was surprised at how much faith he lost in 'Hard Justice' (which I thought was excellent and was really enjoying until he pulled the mother of all cop-outs in order to finish it).

And I'm with you on the Movie. A great way to spend 30 minutes.  :D

So, not to start a flame war or anything, but because I'm a bit of a fanboy, I'm curious to see what your feelings on Black Ops in relation to Reach are. As in, which will you buy first, which will you play more, which are you looking forward to more? I didn't think that this needed its own thread, so I posted it here because, overall, I look forward to Reach and don't even plan on getting Black Ops. I've given each CoD game a fair shot to impress me; I've been continuously disappointed. I might give it a rental if enough of my friends bug me to get it so they can play it (I seem to be the only person they know with an Xbox), but that's as far as I'm willing to go with it.

I've given each CoD game a fair shot to impress me; I've been continuously disappointed. I might give it a rental if enough of my friends bug me to get it so they can play it (I seem to be the only person they know with an Xbox), but that's as far as I'm willing to go with it.

I'm going to get both. Both games are very similar in terms of gameplay and story, but one is present day and the other, future.

Halo's balanced.

But my only concern is the Sangheili this go around. They're massive! 1 vs 1; you're going to lose if you panic. You know it.

Spartan: Shit! Dinosaur!
Sangheili: *Energy sword spasm to the face*

Luckily for us, Bungie's spotted this discrepancy and have highly regulated the Elite presence. This somewhat disappoints me; I was hoping that they would be balanced, each having strengths and weaknesses but different play styles, but this current system is still ridiculously awesome.

In answer to your question, I'd get Reach over the new CoD game. I probably will. I love CoD, but after getting three of the games and having each of them pretty much identical, I won't be getting a fourth.

Even though I am more of a Halo fan I might get black ops first.  This depends on what I hear about Black Ops.  BTW is it funny that people(in my town) complain that Halo games(excluding HW) are all the same yet they buy every COD game?

Not really. Halo Wars is the only real standout because it's an RTS game.
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Drago-Morph on Jul 05, 2010, 03:42:43 AM
As far as ludicrously popular shooters go, I'd say Halo changes a fair amount from game to game. The only thing I can think of that changed almost fundamentally was Battlefront (space combat anyone?), but even that left the ground mechanics relatively untouched. However, Reach looks like it's doing even more than usual to break the mold (space combat anyone?).

Still, though, you have to cut Bungie some slack. They can't change much or they loose their fanbase, but they need to change a substantial amount to keep it fresh (something the CoD franchise has utterly failed to do).

Yes, each Halo game, while not exactly different from the last, takes the good points of the previous games and expands upon them to make a more user friendly experience. (Of course, Wars and ODST are exceptions because Wars is a different style game, and ODST is an expansion pack, so it pretty much plays like Halo 3 with a few tweaks). I think maybe the reason why the COD games are all identical is because they come out once a year, whereas the major Halo games come out every 3 years (CE, 2, 3, Reach). But, to keep the fans from getting anxious, some spinoff/expansion games like Wars and ODST are released.

EDIT: This isn't about this, but about Halo Reach, and I didn't want to double post. I just saw that Reach has space combat! I really want to see what its like, but I'm going to wait for the game to come out!!!  >:(
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Drago-Morph on Jul 05, 2010, 03:53:07 PM
Thanks for reading my post. On the subject of ODST, I think that it completes Halo 3. In order to get a full, well-rounded campaign length you need to combine the two, and in order to get an even fuller game you need to add in Firefight to Halo 3. This is one of the reasons I'm so excited for Reach; it feels like the biggest, fullest, most satisfying game yet. It just feels like there will be so much in it, like it won't be lacking in story, or game modes, or multiplayer. It seems like it's just taken everything good about every other game, made them better, and put them on one disc.

Space combat should be awesome, though I didn't read or watch anything about it yet. I didn't even read/watch anything about the new firefight. And I refuse to read about what the story is about. So yeah, I'm not going to be spoiled for this one.

But Space Combat sounds great! I can't wait to see how it works out!

On the topic of space combat, I always thought Space Combat would be fun in Halo Wars.

What about Forge and Theater? Combining those with Custom Games, and you have a completely new section of the game other than standard campaign and multiplayer.

One thing that kinda annoys me about the space combat is that it looks like it automatically levels your ship out with a horizon of sorts. I don't want that; this is a space battle. There is no up or down, no horizon, no direction in which you should orient yourself.

According to Mancannon from Bungie there will be a big ass update tommorrow with tons of new screens and info for Reach.

From Neogaf:

"Hey tomorrow is Friday and Urk is still out of the office tending to diapers! I'm back at the helm (with some help from Luke) and I'm going to go ahead and semi-scoop myself...

Tomorrow's update will have a ridiculously huge Q&A with Chris Opdahl (he answered basically every question that was asked of him), I'm going to acknowledge the RvB video with some insightful tidbits, obligatory latest status of the project and team, show off some new treats coming your way via Reach AND... wait for it... drop exactly 66 new screenshots into the body of the update. Probably even drop another achievement detail or two into the mix as well.

And the Comic-con panel is just a week from today which will yield new info and a plethora of media capture and screens...then a big megaton not too much further out with the fruits of this week's big media preview visit... I can haz hype now?"

Actually, I just found a cheap way to fix mine. A friend was having the same problem (2 Red Rings every time he turned it on) so he sprayed a can of compressed air into the back of the XBox, blowing away all of the dust, and now it works. So I'm going to try that, and if that fails, maybe I'll get a new one around Christmas. After Christmas I'll be able to get Reach for only $40, anyways.

Also, did they ever announce a preorder bonus? Since I've been avoiding all spoilers, I don't know about this. If so, what is it?

Forge world? Sounds cool, but I refuse to watch a video about it! NEED...TO...RESIST!!!!!

And Halo isn't ending, 343 is taking over. So we will have more non-Bungie Halo games, like Halo Wars. I'm hoping for a survival horror game set during CE about the Flood. And maybe some stuff earlier in the War before the Halos were discovered.

-Elites are awesome
-The addition of Sword specific assassinations is awesome.
-The chick screaming in the audience is awesome.

It's because in Halo 3, you would have never been able to delete something like, say the large base on Valhalla. It's all about expanding the options. In Halo 3, to freeze things in mid air, you would need to make a tower, place what you wanted, and then delete the entire tower. Or, hold onto something, Save, and end the game, start the game again, and go back to it. Now, it is a quick option to do so. And the audience went crazy because, like Brian Jarrard said "a very easy crowd".. and why not? Stuff like the color changes are just for the hell of it. Also, deleting things like rocks, is new to Halo, and is working toward more freedom of placeable/deletable objects.

No NPC spawns, ferrex, a Bungie employee, already answered a question regarding the spawning of npc's. Sadly, he said No. Mainly because it's an MP gametypes, while they see Firefight as Co-Op Single-player or something.

QuotePosted by: SnideDeemonator
if there was A.I, i would make a huge battle scene in forge world with the covenent spawning in the gulch and you(the humans) spawning in the indoor place with the humans attacking the empty base by falcons and the covenent fighting back.

thats a sign for I NEED A.I!!!

Hate to burst any bubbles, but Forge is an MP only mode, and that means no AI of any flavor. Sorry!

Same here. Gamestop Recon armor as well day one, it's gonna be sweet. Good job on those achievements. I don't have the drive to get them all, especially the ones in Halo Wars (bleh). I'm not too interested in avatar armor or looks. From day one I had a winner and I've just barely tweaked it ever since. Anyone else getting Legendary? One thing I have to say is that the flaming helmet better stay exclusive for Legendary buyers or I'll be pissed.

Im guessing those were maps done in halo 3? And yes we will finally and easily be able to do alien, predator, predators, and avp maps. At least I know i'll be able to with the tools they're providing. I mean there are endless possibilities, sky bases, armories, strongholds, bases etc.

I am getting the Reach xbox as well with the token for Recon and the Some Elite Armor as well.

And I have a clan known as REACH just for the new Halo as well.
But of course I will forge with any AVPG members that want to or want to join in the clan.

Awesome, I'll accept next time I'm on.

Oh and I made a Predators Gametype and Map, I made the map on Valhalla so that everybody can play whether they have the DLC maps or not.

Here's a 'sneak peak'- The Predators don't regenerate their shields, they have a 50% Vampirism so that they have a kinda 'honor' system, if they're hurt, they need to inflict pain to get their health back.

Humans have the same thing, but they have 50% slower charging shields to make it balanced.

It's an Infection gametype, but the Zombies are the humans, so once a Predator is killed he stays dead. This should encourage stealthy gameplay.

Predators have Energy Sword and Plasma Pistol. I chose the Plasma Pistol as the cannon because it can be charged, and deal a lot of damage, but not kill in one hit.

Since this is a site that has an Alien fanbase, I thought I'd share my Aliens map and gametype with you guys. Try doing a 3 or more player game.. it's pretty intense. I also made it so that there were only guns types that have been seen in the movies. I'm pretty sure every Human starts with an Assault Rifle (Pulse Rifle), and there are two chainguns available (Smart-Gun), and one Flamethrower. It is incredibly intense when you are the last human (I've done it with 10 players), and when you have the Flamethrower, you get an awesome Ripley vibe. I put a lighting filter on that makes the whole map a lot darker, but you are still able to see.. I find that a short burst of the flamethrower helps me..

There is also two cool screenshots, and a map called "Minas Tirith", and one called "Galactica" as well, that I think are pretty cool.

Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Space Sweeper on Jul 30, 2010, 10:34:51 PM
I think Halo 2 had the best campaign in almost every regard.

I changed my avatar to honor my favorite shot from the campaign trailer. It features themes I've always wanted in a Halo game: crushing defeat, and loss.

And Bungie does loss so well- everbody who played Halo 1,2,3 in order, and saw Sergeant Johnson & Miranda Keyes die know what's up. The amazing musical score helps so much too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92Bbw-KHajs

There is a direction in the musical score for a moment in here that I think should be changed; it's hard to explain, but try to bare with me:

At 0:35, the music starts to soar, and then it hits 0:40, and it replays the musical cue we had previously heard at 0:12. What, in my opinion, should have happened was it should have kept going with the strings and lower level sound instead of a breakthrough with the choir raising the level. I think this would have been much more dramatic, and would have fit the scene for effectively.

If you notice even slightly what I'm talking about, your opinion would be appreciated  :)

And this is just a minor critique to Marty's instrument choice, I'm in no way a musical buff, and I'm not claiming to have any sort of extended knowledge of how writing for an orchestra works, just expressing how I felt in the moment.

Agreed. I played 3 first and the deaths didn't mean much, but then I played one and 2, and then replayed 3 and wow! Bigg impact. I have since played every Halo game, read every book (not the comics) and watched Legends. I love all of it! The story is really great! Can't wait for Reach!
Title: Re: Halo
Post by: Space Sweeper on Jul 31, 2010, 06:11:28 AM
My god, I think I just found a few possible character death hints in the Campaign trailer!

Click the spoiler tag for my analysis, but be warned.. it's pretty in-depth and quite shockingly plausible.

Spoiler
Through the latest campaign trailer, I found possible proof of the death of Jorge and/or Kat

Part 1:

The part of Noble Team (Noble Six, Kat, and Jorge) is seen flying into the badly damaged city, to which at some point in a building they are ambushed by a team of Elites.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi26.tinypic.com%2F33xjwb6.jpg&hash=af73f7316fb0322c5cbb23df30b514b95cb02508)

In the picture above, Noble Six is on the left, Jorge is on the ground, without his weapon in his grip (why else, aside from a mortal wound, would a SPARTAN II be unarmed in a combat zone?), and Kat is standing on the right. (Note that they are dropping from a Phantom)


Part 2:

An Elite tackles Noble Six, and you assume the first person perspective as Noble Six puts his hand against Elite's fist that currently has a drawn Energy Gauntlet (as I call them). They wrestle, and the Elite roars right into his face.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi31.tinypic.com%2F34po21h.jpg&hash=411032b7a261caa0c8fdcc000b4b57cfa8c5bb57)

I assume that after this, Noble Six kills the Elite, or it retreats to the Phantom.


Part 3:

Now, Noble Six is firing his Magnum at the passengers of the Phantom, and appears to be crouching beside a set of barely visible light-blue armor in the bottom right-hand corner.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi27.tinypic.com%2F2v803yr.jpg&hash=aa5172a9e443a8d95377620e0f93c9a0b5b16e96)

The only real answer is that it is Kat, seeing as Carter wasn't with them in the fight, until..


Part 4:

Carter, Jun, and Emile are now on the scene, and firing upwards toward the Phantom.. notice the Golden armor in the bottom left-hand corner?

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi30.tinypic.com%2F2rzeycy.jpg&hash=437d3f5e3456f548573933ed8421e6574c764eac)

That is obviously Jorge, nobody else in the squad has that colour, and we have seen him on the ground previously.


Part 5:

We now see (what remains of) Noble team emerging from the same building, and Jun lights a flare for evac.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi27.tinypic.com%2F2iuqs87.jpg&hash=f9f87e37151309262891a1cc812708c495d426c6)

In this picture we have Carter, Jun, and Emile or Noble Six, nobody else. I'm not sure if that is Emile or Noble Six on the left hand side.


Part 6:

Noble Six is seen standing alone looking out at the burning city that he had just left. He is holding a pair of dogtags, indicating that one (or more) of the the squad did infact recently die.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi31.tinypic.com%2F20rwgwj.jpg&hash=68129b6d8a1c603a51cde8b9ad33bd57dbf21628)

There are two possibilities for Noble Six being alone I am exploring:

.1- At the point when Kat and Jorge went down, he somehow lost contact with the rest of the squad (Carter, Jun, Emile), and he later found his way to the outskirts of the city.

.2- He was thought to be dead, but he was only knocked out by something in which case the rest of Noble Team moved on, and when he woke up, he found his way to the outskirts of the city.

Both of these would do fine to explain it possibly being Emile in the previous picture with the rest of Noble Team instead of Noble Six.


Conclusion:

What do I think of this? I love it. The theme of loss and defeat had always seemed absent from the Halo series until Halo 3, with the death of Johnson and Miranda. And this game needs death, it screams for it. I personally hope (and I know this sounds a bit twisted) that the whole team eventually dies, as has been hinted at. It would also seal any loose cracks in the canon.

YES YES! KILL THEM ALL!
But I agree with every point in that analysis.
I do believe that it wnt down like this.
Jorge walks forward and suddenly stops. Looking up he is shot repeatedly by the plasma turret on the phantom and falls over yelling then is shot dead as Kat and six arrive running the elites begin to drop down and as six struggles with the Elite with the sword he/she hears Kat yell and then manages to push the elite off. He/she then turns and sees kat dead and is then knocked out by the elite as the rest of the group arrives. He/she then sees the team fire and leave as his/her vision begins to fade.

In the picture above, Noble Six is on the left, Jorge is on the ground, without his weapon in his grip (why else, aside from a mortal wound, would a SPARTAN II be unarmed in a combat zone?), and Kat is standing on the right. (Note that they are dropping from a Phantom)


Part 2:

An Elite tackles Noble Six, and you assume the first person perspective as Noble Six puts his hand against Elite's fist that currently has a drawn Energy Gauntlet (as I call them). They wrestle, and the Elite roars right into his face.

I assume that after this, Noble Six kills the Elite, or it retreats to the Phantom.


Part 3:

Now, Noble Six is firing his Magnum at the passengers of the Phantom, and appears to be crouching beside a set of barely visible light-blue armor in the bottom right-hand corner.

The only real answer is that it is Kat, seeing as Carter wasn't with them in the fight, until..


Part 4:

Carter, Jun, and Emile are now on the scene, and firing upwards toward the Phantom.. notice the Golden armor in the bottom left-hand corner?

That is obviously Jorge, nobody else in the squad has that colour, and we have seen him on the ground previously.


Part 5:

We now see (what remains of) Noble team emerging from the same building, and Jun lights a flare for evac.

In this picture we have Carter, Jun, and Emile or Noble Six, nobody else. I'm not sure if that is Emile or Noble Six on the left hand side.


Part 6:

Noble Six is seen standing alone looking out at the burning city that he had just left. He is holding a pair of dogtags, indicating that one (or more) of the the squad did infact recently die.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi31.tinypic.com%2F20rwgwj.jpg&hash=68129b6d8a1c603a51cde8b9ad33bd57dbf21628)

There are two possibilities for Noble Six being alone I am exploring:

.1- At the point when Kat and Jorge went down, he somehow lost contact with the rest of the squad (Carter, Jun, Emile), and he later found his way to the outskirts of the city.

.2- He was thought to be dead, but he was only knocked out by something in which case the rest of Noble Team moved on, and when he woke up, he found his way to the outskirts of the city.

Both of these would do fine to explain it possibly being Emile in the previous picture with the rest of Noble Team instead of Noble Six.


Conclusion:

What do I think of this? I love it. The theme of loss and defeat had always seemed absent from the Halo series until Halo 3, with the death of Johnson and Miranda. And this game needs death, it screams for it. I personally hope (and I know this sounds a bit twisted) that the whole team eventually dies, as has been hinted at. It would also seal any loose cracks in the canon.

Apprentice? How about partner in unlocking the secrets of Halo: Reach. Does that work?

I'm still confident that Reach will be my new favourite game ever. EVER. Currently Halo 3 holds that title, but I'm certain Reach will change it.

My god, I think I just found a few possible character death hints in the Campaign trailer!

Click the spoiler tag for my analysis, but be warned.. it's pretty in-depth and quite shockingly plausible.

Spoiler
Through the latest campaign trailer, I found possible proof of the death of Jorge and/or Kat
