I'm so excited for this game!!!

It's like Command & Conquer, but set in the Halo universe! What could be more exciting!!!???


I can't believe they actually made this game. What's sad is...people WILL buy it. It's an RTS. How much fun could it be?

EDIT: They do have a following that I won't deny...but we've seen very few improvements over the years as far as RTS's go. The only one I play is Black and White...which isn't really an RTS. It's more of a sim game. I won't say that all RTS's suck...just that millions of people will buy this because it's a Halo game...despite the fact that they have never enjoyed an RTS in their lives.

Panasonic...I do fear Halo. You're entirely right. I fear it because it proves that people like to ride a band wagon instead of buying things they actually like. Go play the first Halo. Then, go play Tribes. Notice a difference? Neither do I. Tribes was out first, but got snubbed because Halo got the timing right and it was on a console. I don't like Halo because it's generic, not innovative in the least bit CRAP! Had you played some FPS's before Halo, you'd know that. Don't tell me I'm an idiot for not riding the hype train here. I choose to like a game because it's good. Gears of War is good. Metal Gear Solid is good. Half-life is good. Halo is mediocrity that got too much attention.

You're going to buy this game, aren't you? *sigh*

meh not my style of game but its not like RTS games have never had a following

panasonic233489d ago

what is sad almost every body that preview this game said this game rocks but what even sadder is hater hatting on halo because they fear it for some reason i don't know.

panasonic233489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

what ever say u [email protected]@[email protected] just go back to ps3 section and worship killzone 2

panasonic233489d ago

i can't wait to see your rant on halo odst

Dread3489d ago

yes i am buying it hater.. go hate in the open zone

tribes lol

caladbolg7773489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Poor Halo Wars is coming out stillborn. And I agree, [email protected] Halo to Tribes. Tribes kicks Halo's ass.

tatotiburon3489d ago

so much hate and fear.

wrong zone----->

r2kcipher3489d ago

red faction was much better than tribes and halo imo. and i have played them all to some extent. maybe i am the minority.

i think the halo universe could be better portrayed in rts form (i am an rts fan) but, on a console no. endwar's gameplay leaves a bad taste in my mouth. once again i may be the minority.

waiting for my keyboard and mouse capable ps3, to get a good rts.

LeonSKennedy4Life3489d ago

Tribes IS much better. I'm sorry, sir.

Halo isn't a terrible game...just a game that doesn't deserve to be where it's at. How can you not agree with that?

You're not excited for Killzone 2 because it's on PS3. We're all excited because it looks really good. (Gameplay and graphics.) I was excited for Gears of War 2 and Fable II also. Are you saying somebody can't enjoy games on every system? I do.

No Way3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Lmao.. You.. Are.. An.. Idiot..
Halo is a good game.. "How can you not agree with that?"

"How much fun could it be?" Well, looking back at Age of Empires, or Rise of Nations, I'm sure it will be rather fun. And, the videos look rather good.. especially for an RTS on a console.

"What's sad is...people WILL buy it."
Just like you will probably buy Metal Gear Solid for the iPhone.. Huh?

JaggedSac3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

You have either never played Tribes or never played Halo because those two games would be the last I would compare to each other. They both are great games, but you would have to be retarded to compare them.

And I seriously doubt anyone on these comments has played Tribes besides me.

The Dude3489d ago

I would rather play anything Halo than shovelware games like Resistance 1 & 2 which I own and can honestly say they both were garbage.

Agent VX3489d ago

Sorry folks, RTS games belong on a PC, or at least a console that supports mouse/keyboard, and that is even a stretch. Sorry, I can't live without my countless Mods on PC.

Maybe if this game makes it to a PC, I might consider it.

The Last Remnants of Xbox 360 Fanboys in this very article. Soon to be dwindled down to bile. Enjoy.

I wonder if this game would ever make it to the pc? Perhaps ported somehow?

If done, it would reach a higher potential then on a console sadly. I don't see much mod support for this in the future :/

lelo3489d ago

Hummm ... It might, but it will take a wile. People are still waiting for Halo 3 at the PC.

LeonSKennedy4Life3489d ago

I don't think they are. Most PC gamers look at Halo and laugh. I dare you to go to a LAN party and ask if you can play Halo. They're kick you out, dude.

Halo's a joke to PC gamers.

No Way3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

I doubt it will be ported cause Ensemble Studios is getting shut down..
And, if they do port it, they better find a good group to do so.

LeonSKennedy4Life - "Halo's a joke to PC gamers."
What a coincidence, you're also a joke to.. Gamers. Hmmph.

Gun_Senshi3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Actually Leon is right.

For PC Gamers and Gamers who been playing FPS since Doom 1, Halo is a joke.

Even Doom 2 had better bosses.

I am going to purchase it. What is your point?

LeonSKennedy4Life3489d ago

But why are you going to purchase it?

My favorite series in the entire world is Lord of the Rings. I didn't buy every Lord of the Rings game because a few of them were terrible! Does that not make sense?

Then again, you could just be an RTS fan. I apologize greatly if that's the case.

Halochampian3489d ago

Does every LOTR game expand the story? I didn't think so.

I will pick this up because I am a Halo fan. I am not afraid to say that. I have always wanted to get into RTS's but never really did due to only being a console gamer.

Halo Wars looks promising.

No Way3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Just because you have no life and like to piss all over everything that is Halo or x360 related, or RTS, too it seems, doesn't mean other people won't want to buy this game.

Geez, get over yourself, bro..

JOLLY13489d ago

I love Age of Empires (all of them) I like rts's and I think Halo is a great game with some great gameplay and some hilarious situations. It is fun and that is the most important thing to me.

I'm exited, it looks good and it seems gameplay is good for the controller... probably be the first RTS i get for a console. The demo will decide if it's a purchase or not.
