5 Reasons Why Halo 4 Demands Your Attention This Holiday Season

GR: After having taken the time to speak with fellow gamers on what titles they're most excited for this year, I'm baffled by how rarely Halo 4 is mentioned. I hear titles like Assassin's Creed III, Borderlands 2, and even Dishonored, but surprisingly enough, 343 Industries' triple-A shooter hardly ever comes up. Does it have to do with the fact that Bungie's no longer at the helm? Are people really that tired of the franchise? Shouldn't that complaint be more appropriate for Call of Duty which has taken over the first-person shooter space? Whatever the reason, Master Chief's upcoming outing simply cannot be ignored. Why, you ask? I've got five compelling reasons to sway you.

All great reasons.im also surprised by the lack of hype anywhere outside the firmly entrenched fanboys. Of course, if I'm trying to speak with anyone outside of that demographic, N4G is the wrong place for it.

Halo 4 looks great, but I wouldn't be willing to rebuy a 360 and pay for XBL just to play it...not this late in the generation.

Irishguy951401d ago

I'm hoping my 360 doesn't break again before it comes out, I'll get a month of live for it

I usually don't disagree with you but you really came in here to tell us you're not gonna buy another xbox just for halo 4?
Is that what the article suggested you do? Nope. I've come to expect rational responses from you and I know you won't disappoint me on this. I just need to know why you came into an xbox 360 only comment section to tell us that you don't have an xbox 360, and you're not gonna buy another one. What conversation where you hoping this revelation would start?
@killerhog, then you've never played halo because everybody knows you can play both online AND local multiplayer with Halo. Heck you can take your local 4 split-screen ONLINE WITH YOU to play against other people on xbox live.
@Outside the box most of the time, (even when he's saying something I disagree with) it makes sense and is relevant. This time just seems so random and trollish. When I said I usually don't disagree, I meant I usually don't click the disagree button because what he says makes alot of sense even when our opinions differ.
There was no sense or reason in this comment.
Seeing as Halo 4 isn't in your interest, why are you here?

***"I usually don't disagree with you but you really came in here to tell us you're not gonna buy another xbox just for halo 4?"***

You don't agree with him now because it isn't in your best interest to do so lol. I'm not surprised at all that you agree with the majority of his comments.

Dms20121401d ago

Then don't buy it, and don't comment.

***"Seeing as Halo 4 isn't in your interest, why are you here?"***

Because the article gained my interest? Not that it actually matters why I'm here or not.

***"I meant I usually don't click the disagree button because what he says makes alot of sense even when our opinions differ."***

How can you not agree with something that makes sense?

"I just need to know why you came into an xbox 360 only comment section to tell us that you don't have an xbox 360, and you're not gonna buy another one. What conversation where you hoping this revelation would start?"

I'm here because I'm a fan of the franchise and I enjoyed playing Halo 3 when I had a 360. Just because I'm a fan of Halo doesn't mean that I'm a fan of Microsoft.

I'd say record pre order sales for the halo series speaks louder than hype.
Halo fans like to leave the talking to their wallets.
Close to 12 million Halo 3 sales speaks volumes in my opinion. Far louder than any hype.

Captain Qwark 91401d ago

halo 3 was a great game. i didnt car for odst or reach. very, very excited for halo 4 though, ill be there at midnight launch

killerhog1401d ago

In a multiconsole owner perspective (especially in the holidays) a local (party) and online multiplayer is a better idea. I would rather get playstation all-star battle royale.

Kalowest1401d ago

"a local (party) and online multiplayer is a better idea."
Halo 4 should be on your list then.

spicelicka1401d ago

halo has the best local and online multiplayer, specially local.

Dms20121401d ago

As an orange lover, I prefer oranges over apples. In fact, I love oranges so very much that if there was an article online specifically about apples, for people that like apples, I would be a total jackass and post about how much I like oranges, and how everyone that likes apples are stupid.

Allsystemgamer1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

So wait.

Making multiplayer maps WITH PEOPLE
2 Full co op campaigns with friends in 4 way split screen or online
Split screen versus/ 4 way splitscreen ONLINE

Doesn't sound like a good multiplayer experience?

Oh btw your trolling sucks because halo has everything an more you mentioned.

Want a brawler? Simple. SWORDS VS GRAVITY HAMMERS VS RAMMING VEHICLES PLUS NO GRAVITY IN A GIANT SPHERE WITH BOOBY TRAPS. How does that not sound fun as a split screen game??

killerhog1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

Trolling? So I should get a game, that only appeals to shooting fans; with characters that can only relate to fans of that series? Let alone in its fourth installment, over a new ip on the ps3? That makes perfect sense, because I only have shooting game (halo specific) fanatic friends, and all my friends are guys as well. Let me not get the game everyone can pick up and play, with characters from their prefer game/genre? Makes perfect sense. I especially love the imbecile, who did the orange and apple comparison, cause he's to slow to think outside the box. He failed to realize what the article was about, and my reason against it (article), as a multiple console owner with friends of different taste.

Yes I know all-star is a fighting game, but the characters are from different games/genres (preference) with different styles (radec shooting for example).

Sony fans lurk around every corner on this site trolling 360/halo articles because they're envious/jealous of the halo franchise...reason 1

halo pisses playstation kids off because it's sales are phenomenal.... reason 2

the series set the bar for first person shooters......reason 3

sony kids are mad because they want play it,but are closed minded and on n4g all day sniveling,buy halo 4 to help remedy that ......reason 4

resistance and killzone failed in every way to be successful like the halo series ....reason 5.

could give many more reasons but i'll stop at 5 like the article reads.

ahhhhh
great to own a 360

oh alright here's a 6th reason
there's nothing quite like the halo series with it's deep story,charaters,lore and classic gameplay that's quite unique from any other series.

I just want my special edition 360.

alexcosborn1401d ago

That thing does look amazing :)

ChunkyLover531401d ago

Could probably list 100 reasons why it demands attention. Cant wait!

knifefight1401d ago

I'll bet I could eat a hundred copies of Halo 4.

FarCryLover1821401d ago

I can give you five reasons as to why I'm sick of lists and reasons.

TheRealHeisenberg1401d ago

Every console is guilty of it. Do you need a list or are you done trolling?

Halo 4 is a day one purchase for me and is the game I have been looking forward to the most since it was announced.

Allsystemgamer1401d ago

I dont know if you've actually taken a look at the game but it offers as a sequel vastly more co tent than anything Sony has thrown at it's audience in terms of sequels. Not that they're bad games but if our talking milking a series halo 4 is definitely what a swirl should be. Not just a new story.

Shadonic1401d ago

How many final fantasys and god of wars or there or maybe ratchet anc clank ? Dosent really matter i mean theres a hundred mario games i dont see anyone saying milk there as long as they let the player have fun then there doing just fine. I mean even in just plain generic character or story design its all kind of milked they tweak things and change up the scenery but its all the same. At least thats what ive learned from my collage storytelling and writing classes.
