After speaking with their inside insiders, CVG is reporting that they believe Microsoft will in fact announce a new Halo game next week that's said to not be a true Halo 4 seeing that Master Chief is said to not be featured in the game.
and they are labeling it halo? Microsoft doesn't miss the opporunity of making money that's for sure.
The halo universe is massive, as all of the games, books, and "halo bible" have shown us. Bungie did a lot more than just set up a story line to follow their trilogy with MC, they created an entire universe that has a ton of potential. Thats why games such as Halo Wars works so well with the backstory. They have set themselves or another studio up to have endless opportunities to create new and interesting games with the halo story.
So we have a Halo universe and a Mass Effect universe. It would be nice to see some new IPs setup with elaborate universes. Heck you don't even need a huge cannon of material to launch a successful and ever lasting franchise. Look at Mario... It'd be nice to see some new strong IPs from Microsoft is all...
I am sure you won't be buying God of War III.
they replaced kratos with someone else?
My comment was directed at the "make money" part. After all the video game is an "industry" where their primary goal is too "make money". IE God of War III. If it works go with it.
Basically, people who do not like Halo are mad that a new Halo game is coming out. That just means they are scared and jealous.
"It doesn't have Master Chief ? and they are labeling it halo?" Yet people on this site adamantly defend the idea of the potential of the next MGS not including snake. A franchise != the same characters...
MGS2...u played as snake for a blink
A prequel where you start out going to war just after graduating bootcamp or Advanced Infantry Training. Make this game as epic as the other Halo games and perhaps have your character attain ranks after each of the battles until finally in the end he becomes Master Chief. Could be really cool. =) They could do many battles on Earth and even perhaps on the moon or Mars against other Earthly militaries.
Does it matter you couldnt tell anyways as they all look the fricken same! nobodys got any characteristics whatsoever the major crappy part about this game is there are no people with characteristics everybody inc master chief looks the fricken same!
What about the Peter Jackson project?
As far as we know this could be it. Next week we should have more answers.
Halo without the Chief = FAIL.
....Bye bye Snake But we'll see. They should def continue Halo, I mean we have COD4 so why not? Plus it has some of the best multi-player features on consoles.
Well MGS can have Snake in a game without having Snake. It is called Big Boss as in MGS3.
Start Another Fight Maybe they can send the space marines to a desert plannet and you fight alien terrorists and you steal there space oil. But if Bungie arent making it (which looks likely) it could be a crock of """" unless they get someone outside of MSGS to make it wait and see
Come on MS, be original, Halo has been done to death! I can't blame you though, because the Halo franchise is a goldmine, no matter how poor the game is, it'll sell HUGE.
They've made 3 Halo games and they've done it to death? I supposed you feel the same about Metal Gear Solid 4 right? or how about Final Fantasy XIII (don't care if they are all different games it's still the FF franchise being milked). New IP's are great and risky and the Halo universe is a proven success for them and it's a big universe if you read any of the books. I can totally see why they are wanting to make more out of it. The one point I do agree with you on is that it will sell huge!
better graphics improved shooting (shooting was a bit boring in the past halos) less hp same features (forge, camera thingy) good physics system and an interesting story would make halo 4 a great game.
It would be cool to play missions as maybe a soldier or a squad. I guess will have to wait and see what they have planned at E3.
Don't forget Halo Wars, i didn't bring Metal Gear Solid or Final Fantasy into the debate, so you are clearly a Microsoft fanboy. I suppose if they make Halo 4 different and not generic to the previous installments, it could deserve the sales that it will make.
how many Halo games are out there??? 3! Halo Wars isn't out yet. Plus.. Halo wars is a total different type of game. I think they really did it because it is kinda like what Halo was suppose to be in the first place: a RTS.
If a series is good, why not make more of it?
Put that bucket over your head chump. Halo's the ish!!!!
Take that bucket off... Halo is the mediocre!
because Halo 3 wasn't good. The only reason Halo is still standing is beause of the brainless gamer audience who buy for the name, not the quality of the game. Everyone will disagree with me, but hey, they know i'm right.
name 5 great games?, I'd like to know what you think.
People who disagree with you will actually think you are not right. Simple logic How about using your brain lol And Halo 3 wasn't a flop. It had a great multiplayer experience which I think was a bit better than COD4 multiplayer. It's single player sucked a little and the graphics were a little Halo 2.5-ish but no game could beat its multiplayer especially online.
Yea currently 211k people playing it across the world are brain dead. /sarcasm I played through the game 3 times, and still play the multiplayer. The story didn't finish out great, but overall the game lived up to my expectations. Yea I agree with the above post your 5 great games.
Chrono Trigger CoD4 (online) FF 6 Doom 2 Myst
Bungie stated at the end of the new podcast that something is gonna happen on July 14th.
HALO 4 - Start Another FIGHT! HALO 5- Halo and Friends In Dream Land! lol I love that video...
Halo isn't Halo without MasterChief. Period. Edit: But then again.. It might be a story about another Spartan soldier. If it's Peter Jackson's Halo Chronicles then that would be interesting.
My 5 great games- Shadow of Rome Shenmue Okami Mass Effect Resident evil 4
but I don't know what Shadow of Rome is (PC) & Okami is some garbage. I asked what are your 5 greatest games because anyone who doesn't give Halo the respect it deserves is a friggin Fanboy. The industry even respects Halo because every shooter is trying to be a " HALO KILLER " nuf said.
Oh come on... let's be honest with ourselves here, Halo 1 was just in the right place at the right time. The Xbox had NO good exclusives, and Halo, admittedly a ground-breaking CONSOLE game for it's time came around and got the recognition it deserved. It did things that PC FPSs had done for YEARS, but it did it correctly for the first time on a console since Goldeneye. That's where it should have stopped. It ceased to be anything special after that.
I apologize about my previous comment. My top five games are! 1)resident evil 2 2)metal gear solid psx 3)halo 1 4)unreal tournament 2004 5)streets of rage 1,2,3
Halo 2 propelled the Xbox Live platform into the stratosphere for the Xbox brand. So I don't think after Halo 1 it stopped doing anything special.
Halo was a launch title. =/ Which is one of the best launch titles to date. How could there be many exclusives for the Xbox if it was just launched? and everything else you said is just opinion. if that is the way you think... A LOT of series should have stopped at 1.
I'm not saying that's where the series should have stopped, but even some of the most popular series in the history of gaming had to go through the paces for a few iterations before they god the kind of rabid fanboyism that Halo had accrued, and in all honesty there are much better games that get overlooked because of hype machines like the Halo franchise.
And get rid of Cortana. Also, more variety of enemies
Common Element x.Cortana is the sh*t.Always loved her character from Halo 1 and still loved her in 3.
"I asked what are your 5 greatest games because anyone who doesn't give Halo the respect it deserves is a friggin Fanboy." But you aren't a fanboy are you? You don't show my 5 great games respect, but i should respect Halo? Shadow of Rome is the greatest gladiator game ever and Okami is just so unique and underrated. I don't dislike Halo, i just think it is gradually going downhill quality wise. Halo 1 and 2 were extremely good, but Halo 3 ( and probably 4) aren't huge improvements and thus don't deserve my repect.
This is interesting, I can't help but wonder where in the story this could come in though, presumably before the Spartans? Or is that what Halo Wars is covering.. if so, where would this story take place?
This is indeed the point.The Halo universe is rich and means a whole manner of games should happen from this. Halo gets sh!t on a daily basis for milking it which is fairly ludicrous and when something like this emerges, people rant about money grabbing MS for wanting to expand what Halo stands for. The idea that MS is milking it because of no chief is completely stupid and sums up the level of intelligence some people have that comment here. I love the books, they point to so much potential within the Halo universe.Bungie created something quite special in that it gets taken very seriously by many devoted fans.The world of Halo is here to stay so get used to it slaggers
don't deny it
Killzone avatar I see, that turned out just brilliant now didn't it? hmmph
i own an xbox too and almost every one on live agrees that halo 3 was a disappointment. and my avatar is for killzone 2 which will kick halo's ass. and it was horrible because it was basically halo 2 with better graphics and new features.
"it was basically [insert title] with better graphics and new features." what sequel isn't? I assume KZ2/Fable2/Crysis Warhead will have better graphics and features too...?
Sounds pretty ironic! Halo 3 was what I wanted it to be, some of the best organised community linked Multiplayer gaming to be had, and wrap up the story one way or another. I would have liked to see some more missions but oh well. So tell me then, Killzone 2 gonna break the trend by having less features, worse graphics?
You probably play as the Arbiter or a different soldier.
probably true. could be cool. I'd expect to see the real Halo 4 as a 720 launch title. I hope. either that or Gears 3.
youd better not control aliens. I hate being friends with the aliens in halo. not cause I hate aliens, but because the reason Halo 1 has the best camaign is because the elites were the coolest enimies to fight. When you fight the elites in halo1, you know they will mess you up. The brutes really are stupid, which makes sense in the story. just because it made sense doesnt mean that it was as fun.
Yet they forget that MGS has 4 games with a 5th coming. Socom has 4 as well with a 5th on the way. God of War 3 is coming. Funny how its only MS and the Halo franchise that gets accused of "milking". Droid hypocrisy, how sad.
MGS is a 20 year old franchise you douche. And MGS4 pwned Gaylo 3. MGS4 = GOTY
LOL halo is what? Like a 5-6 year franchise you dumbass. MGS spans 20 years, what a tool. Thanks for the amusement though.
so then why is kojima working on MGS5 NOW? dumbasses. milking FTL.
The game got milk under 5 years and comparing to the game like MGS which took 20 years, I wonder which one milk the most
So thats the new defense? "bu..bu they span over this many years :(" Get the f**k out, it doesn't matter how long the franchises lifespan is. The fact is you douchebags rag on 1 game for doing what EVERY major franchise does, MAKE MORE. HYPOCRISY, LOOK IT UP.
MG/MGS has a captivating storyline set across 40+ years,with dozens of memorable characters,inovating gameplay,top of the line graphics,great voice acting.And fantastic motion capture. All the while the game's themselves were made througout 20 years. Halo series is f*ckin lame.Im sorry,but it really is. it's Just a typical FPS game. And "MGS5" is just a rumor,if he did make a new game.It would be completly new,since all of the characters had there storyline's wrapped up nicely.
For the most part, games that suck don't get sequels. I don't understand why Sony fanboys are scoffing, saying that Halo is being "milked". Halo is the highest selling exclusive franchise. It's in high demand, and Sony fanboys can't stand it. Milk away. Look at Mario. How many titles is he in? He's in his regular adventures, and he's been in tennis games, Mario Strikers, Mario this, Mario that, Mario Kart, Dr. Mario, the list goes on and on.
"bu..bu.. teh production quality" You can't argue sh*t, accept the fact your a jealous prick like all droids who can't stand to see such a quality franchise succeed.
LOL quality franchise, what a retard. Go buy a brain buddy.
...if Halo's being milked then so is Madden and all the sports games, so is Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, and damn near every video game out there, right? What's wrong with giving someone (Peter Jackson?) a chance on a new Halo story arch without Master Chief (Prequel? Sequel?) with a new perspective, say third person view? To expect MS to just move on after only three games is ridiculous, especially considering how successful the Halo games have been, critically and financially. Just give it a chance....
too right. the halo universe is much bigger than just master chief. whoever thinks this is milking are rediculous, how many games have the mario name on to date? I would quite like to see a story arch follow a group of marines discovering the convenant for the first time, in the style of cameron's aliens 2 with characters like hudson, vasquez, newt.. haha "they mostly come out at night... mostly" :P
I'm definetly hoping its a prequel
But I understand what there doing. Are they supposed to give up on Halo's universe just B/C Master Chief isn't in it? They spent a lot of time making the Halo univese, to use it is not unreasonable. Just like Star Wars and Star Trek they can expand on this and make it something very special. I look forward to what they come up with. Also Master chief is not Halo... He exsists in the Halo universe.
Look at CoD4. They went modern, and it was a hit! Maybe if Bungie goes away from MC, but brings in the other spartans, the storyline could get interesting.
