What is with the art style! Damn, the spartan armour "used" to look logical to a certain extent, now it's just a mess.

What made me happy was reading that the convenient speak ENGLISH again.


IT may not make sense but it's what made halo stick out from all the other generic sc-fi games and added a bit of sillyness to the game, especially with the grunts.

The "in-universe" explanation is that the helmets have translation software. They aren't actually speaking English, it's just being translated so the soldiers can understand.

As far as the art style - I love it. Linda's helmet looks great. It's designed to be something a sniper would wear.

"The convenient" hahahaha omg I'm dying xD
Actually they're very inconvenient man.

But I agree, it adds style and makes the armour look unique. And there are a lot of logical elements to it if you do some research.

That made me happy too. Cant wait to hear the conversations between Elites and Grunts. Funny as ever.

I hope we get to see the campaign demo/teaser at E3.I'm super pumped for Halo 5 now.

It made sense. The humans and covenant have been at war for decades prior to Halo1... That's more than enough time for both cultures to learn each other's languages...

In fact, in Halo1, cortina frequently hacked the Coventant comms to give Master Cheif info... And it is known (from the novels) that the covenant had software that would translate their speech to English for the purpose of interrogating prisoners...

By the time period of Halo2, many unsc troops were equipped with similar translators so they could understand what enemy combatants were saying in real time...

@Spliceika - The art style already was unquie & it was also beliveable that a super soldier would wear it, now, it just looks extremely messy, not to mention how super shiny the armour is & the spike, horns & other ridiculous design choices that plague the armour's beliveablity.

It's more complex looking; the simple armour style of Halo CE -3 would look cartoonish and out of place, when all the other models and objects are high detail and realistic.

Looking forward to the grunts speaking English again even more.

Samsara82918d ago

Kavorklestein918d ago

Looks awesome! Sounds awesome! I can't wait to see more.
Is it just me, or does Greenskull sound like Benjamin fron "hunt the truth" ??? My wife and I think he must have got asked to do it cuz he has a great voice for a snappy Reporter-type of guy lol.

N0TaB0T917d ago

Not at all. Michael Key from Key and Peele voices Benjamin Giraud.

spicelicka917d ago

WOW omg i had no idea Michael is voicing Benjamin Giraud!! That's just so cool!

Kavorklestein917d ago

Oh wow! I didn't know that! Haha well I still think it sounds like Greenskull lol they sound similar sometimes.
