Stick Skills: "It appears as if the video which is too be featured in next week’s Halo Bulletin has leaked early."
Did they just reveal Master Chief's face??!
where? I watched the vid, but didn't catch it.
No that was a real actor in a spartan suit. Probably for promotion. Look at the arm. It's the halo 3 armor.
"too be featured"? How did this article get passed? Still on topic: Looks great! I can't wait! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D Also (an odd reference) if you watch the episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where Odo was on a ship when they attacked the Changeling's homeworld and the Romulan was a changeling, Chief looks like that Romulan guy.
no that's Thomas laskey a new character
*Watches video*... I think you might be right.
dang that video was pretty. it'll definitely be a goty contender but we'll have to wait and see how it is when it comes out.
That game looks good! *grins blissfully* I can't believe I'm actually saying this but... ...I'm glad Bungie isn't working on this.
Should be revealed right at the end of halo 6, I think the cheif should die right at the end, but just before, he should take of his helmet
@HaMM4R, You sound ridiculous! Superheros dont die! They'd better not ever kill The Chief!
That would be kind of awesome like how Darth Vader revealed his face to Luke.
It would be cool if it uses Kinect to map your own face onto Masterchief .
yeah, maybe saying that he should be was a bit OTT. I do think that he should reveal his face right at the end, maybe he could be a really old man, then go into retirement?
Best fps yes!
meh, pass. just like cod, doesnt feel like its earned my money. Same shitty engine too, lol.
Do you trolls even try anymore?
Well actually it is the same engine. watch the video here its from IGN news http://forums.majorleaguega... Halo 4 runs on a modded reach engine, it does look much better tho I agree!
I thought all trolls were members of the One Bubble Alliance, so he/she must be slacking.
Skyrim runs on modified Oblivion engine. You'd be shockjed how much devs claim modified engines are new ones.
Yes some older code still exists but they've totally gutted most of the systems and overhauled them. So on a technicality you can say it's the same engine, but in a totally different context than say CoD/Madden/insert any other yearly franchise that looks the same as its predecessor.
I cried a manly tear...welcome back chief! You have been M.I.A for too long. Time to sit on the throne again...thats if the G Man does not make an appearance this year : ) looking at you Gabe. Lol...I just realized that studio name 343 comes from there mail box @ 10 sec into the vid.
I thought 343 comes from 343 guilty spark, the mailbox is named after the office.. could be wrong but thats where I always thought the 343 came from.
It does come from the character 343 Guilty Spark. Either the guy above only plays MP or he doesn't play halo at all because it's a very important and prominent character in the entire first trilogy. Halo 4 is looking like an excellent and worthy sequel, and the music is beautiful.
343 comes from the AI character 343 Guilty Spark from Halo:CE, who was the monitor of the first Halo game
No it's not come on don't be a fool
Whats with all the Live Action ads Don't get me wrong I can't wait for Halo 4 but I want to see more that amazing gameplay not live action stuff. It's like E3...they showed a 2 minute live action trailer then had 30 seconds at the end showing a montage of some cutscenes. I man we had a level shown but I want to see an epic Halo 4 story trailer.
I think we'll get one more closer to launch, but I think 343i want to avoid what Bungie did to Reach and recreate the same experience we had from Halo CE. They don't want to spoil the story too much for us, so they're just giving us tidbits and small gameplay footage of the campaign.
Look's amazing no doubt
Riding Giant Mechs? Hope I seen that right! A mission on that giant truck while it's moving would be epic. Love the darker yet still halo art style. Looks like Halo Wars art direction which is the best look of all halo's. Yummm even Wolfkill's hair is hot.
This was on the dashboard this morning.
Yeah, this was actually released a few days ago.
I really wouldn't want to be someone who doesn't own a 360 when this releases.
This is going to be my first Halo game, going to see what the fuss is all about.
as a Halo fan, I say...Welcome Chaos :D
You wont be dissapointed - my brother was never a Halo fan only because he thought it was too mainstream like the same reason people here hate on COD but when he played Halo 3 he was hooked and went back and played the other 2 Halo plus read all the books. I recommend you give Halo 3 a shot if you already have a 360, you can pick it up used for about 15 bucks and the amount of content that H3 holds is worth way more than 15 bucks. Also if you end up liking 3 and cant wait till Nov for your Halo fix pick the Halo CE Anniversary game....madnessss!
Halo music always gives me chills.
That is one thing that sets it apart from other titles. The music is just breathtaking.
Please don't take this as a fanboy remark because I'm not taking shots at halo. I feel that killzone has great music too (IM NOT SAYING ONE IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER) seeing as the composer for the killzone games in none other than Hanns Zimmer, the same genius behind the dark knight, inception, etc. Halo and killzone both to me have GREAT music!
Angels was it really necessary to bring up Killzone in a Halo article? I understand that KZ has great music but why bring the game up.
not hating, its just not relevant
This is going to be so good, this is my most anticipated game of the year. The music, the art direction, its all looking so utterly fantastic! 343 has really pulled out all the stops and I cant wait to open my LE game and pop it in.
Just the blood, sweat, tears and effort they're putting into this is unreal. 343i isn't playing around people, this is serious. Nov 6, Halo 4 has my support come launch.
Saw this trailer at the theaters a while ago, great music and cinematics.
I once told a friend, "With Microsoft exclusives, it's more quality over quantity". This trailer just reassured me of that.
Dont mean to sound fanboyish, but what sony/wii exclusives are BAD? ID say all the console makers push out quality exclusives, some just release more than others. Even if this game reviews with perfect 10s it would be on the same level as games like mario galaxy, uncharted, zelda, MGS4. No better no worse. Its just that microsoft releases less exclusives annually. so it many be about quality, but other release quality AND quality.
I'm not saying anything bad about Sony or Nintendo. They make marvelous games(especially exclusives). I'm just speaking about Microsoft. They seem to try to go all in when it comes to the few exclusives that they have.
Calm down there sparky.
I've never seen a Xbox 360 game thats up to Uncharted 2 standards...sorry but thats just me
@ mikecosgrove Gears of war 2 and 3 IMO surpass uncharted 2 standards since it has a solid 4 player drop in and out campaign in each as well as great graphics and solid online play. As great as uncharted 2 is, it's multiplayer pales in comparison to gears of wars multiplayer.....standard wise. Sorry but that's just me
Gears of War 2 maching up to Uncharted 2...I don't think so.
@ MikeCosgrove You are talking "standards" not graphics. Standard wise Gears 2 does stand up to Uncharted 2 and IMO surpasses it. There is much more do to in Gears aside from just looking at graphics. There is just so much more content in Gears 2 than there is in Uncharted 2. Uncharted 2 has a great cinematic gaming experience in it's single player campaign. It's multiplayer aspect is horrible as well as the overall AI. If you are talking "standards" then Yes, I think so. If you are talking just "graphics" as your single means of "standards" then I would agree with you.
Giggidy...Giggidy! can't wait.
After the recent FPSs like Call of Duty I can appreciate Halo more. Why ? 1) Large levels- you can take different approaches in dealing with enemies. COD is linear. 2) Drivable vehicles- while in COD the most you are limited to is on rail segments ( hope this will change) 3)Amazing music 4) Genuine sci-fi- eg. the Superintendent from HAlo ODST, COrtana.
Its looking damn good, and the graphics are surprising me for a halo game!
Halo has always loOked good due to its art style but this is incredible for a 360 game. It looks phenomenal. Everyone should give it a try!
Halo actually takes skill to be good at it online as well. Thats one thing that sets Halo apart from the majority of online fps out there..
Awesome! Limited edition on day 1.
Best Campaign of the year
Halo really is in a class by itself. Truly the definition of masterpiece. The imagination, the creativity, the music, the story, and the gameplay is second to none. The most skillful FPS on the market just got better folks. And it's also amazing to see a game with huge battlefields and still have top notch graphics with great textures. Something that most FPS lack with their box battlefields.
I love how excited I am. It feels like the Halo 2 release all over again. Man that was awesome :-)
Until we played Halo 2's campaign... And then got it rubbed in our face how horrible it was after watching the LE dvd where Bungie admits the game was shit, scrapped it, and rebuilt the campaign in 9 months. Overall solid game, but huge disappointment.
The story and dialogue in Halo 2 was probably some of the best in the series though imo. Campaign was a let down I guess, especially the ending, but learning about the Covenant was really cool. Music was amazing as well.
Halo 2 is one of my favorite games. Period. I don't pay attention to the people that complain about it.
Already seen some mp, looks very close to reach graphics. I don't like the live action ads. Kinda cheating. Like selling a plastic plane aimed at children and have some amazing sound and camera angles. Kid gets toy and he's like wtf. Wasn't like this on the tv. But i'm guessing americans love the fake shit, Transformers over the top sillyness says hi. Call me a troll, whatever. Same old thing. You'll be finishing the fight for along time, because MS has nothing else. Forza, halo fable gears. Rinse and repeat.
lol. your mad. :)
If you own uncharted 3 or golden abyss your a hypocrite If you own killzone 3 your a hypocrite If you own gran turismo 5 your a hypocrite If you own god of war (especialy considering there are 6 not counting the HD rereleases) your a hypocrite If you own the total war series your a hypocrite If you own battlefield your a hypocrite If you own COD your a hypocrite If you own Mario or Zelda your a hypocrite I can go on for hours. Notice multiple platforms? Btw you can't use spinoffs. Halo wars was a different genre set in the halo universe. Halo CE Ann was a remake. Odst was an expansion. Halo 4 is only the 4 th official halo sequel. Point is M$ isn't the only company that relies of top notch games to sell. Notice how all the games I mentioned are awesome rather than bashing one like you fanboys do?
I'll agree with Microsoft recycling their exclusive franchises these past 3 years, but this game looks way better than Reach on a graphical level (though I am curious why they've removed motion blur even though it was in Reach. Seems like a step back.) And it just sounds like you don't like sci-fi. You're probably into bland military shooters with color palettes composed of gray, brown, and sand colors with half-baked forgettable stories in a game universe not worth caring about.
There's no reason to downplay games that others enjoy. In a way I agree with your arg
