Halo 4 EB Games Expo 2012 Multiplayer Preview | Capsule Computers

"Earlier today at the Microsoft booth at this years EB Games Expo us here at Capsule Computers were incredibly lucky to have received an opportunity to play a small amount of the multiplayer in the upcoming Halo 4 developed by 343 Studios and published by Microsoft. The game is the fourth entry in the main Halo storyline featuring Master Chief, but is actually the seventh entry to the series." - Capsule Computers (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Can't wait! I honestly hope either this or Borderlands 2 wins GOTY!

Hate to burst your bubble but I don't think Borderlands 2 is winning Game of the year.

Contenders for GOTY:

* Black Ops 2 - they are adding so much content and fixes it's amazing.

* Assassins Creed 3 - This is the first step in the next direction of the series. We know the campaign will be epic and multiplayer is always a treat.

* Borderlands 2 - What Bordlerlands 1 was supposed/ promised to be.

* Halo 4 - 343 looks to be making this their own game and not them doing bungies old IP. They seems to have added enough stuff to keep this series going strong.

My Surprise Guess is:

Black Ops 2 for GOTY. They have added enough stuff that can't be overlooked when considering these things.

I have a feeling people will only skim over it and declare it more of the same.

They haven't added anything considerable to Black ops to make it stand out. Call of duty in general has left a bitter taste in people's mouthes, and it's extremely unappealing now, unless they upgrade the engine.

It's gonna be a good game don't get me wrong, but I don't think the additions are that amazing at all.

If you look at halo 4, completely re-done engine, graphics look amazing, 3 sets of guns from each faction and most are brand new, multiplayer is totally revamped, unlocks and rewards system is brand new in halo, spartan ops 4 player episodic campaign on top of regular campaign with 4 player co-op already included, flood mode basically fan service, and then there's the story, a whole new epic saga about to begin with one of the deepest stories out there.

I agree with everything you said except Black Ops 2. Please note I am still buying it and I am not one of those idiots that bash CoD religiously. I just think that Black Ops 2 will be the same as every other CoD in how they hype it, people think it will be different, and then they'll be shocked by how the same it is.

They'll be excited for all the changes only to find out they were all superficial, and the CORE gameplay plays EXACTLY the same. It looks the same, the animations are the same, the controls are the same, when it comes to the gameplay itself, its still the exact same game with different guns and maps.

In addition, Treyarch refuses to even TALK about the things that would REALLY improve gameplay - better spawning and most importantly, better net code. People will quickly find out, just like every CoD before it, there are imbalances and cheap ways to play, tons of spawn deaths, and horrible, game-ruining lag. Why? Because it was like that in every recent CoD game and they haven't changed a thing to fix it or they'd be advertising that.

Anyway, I hope I didn't make you sad or discouraged. In all honesty, it will probably be the best CoD to date - but that doesn't mean any of the issues will be fixed or the core gameplay will be changed.

Ummm... I think we play Halo differently. Remind me to never go over to your house to play "games" ;)

Light years is a measure of distance, not time. Just sayin'

weak preview...

Can't wait for this game... here's some good footage of mp and the campaign for anyone who wants to see it:

You call it a weak preview and then you post footage from E3?

It sounds like they were only given about 10mins with the game. You can't really say much about Halo, considering that they don't really change the franchise too much.
