Games Are Evil writes: We sat down with Halo Wars' lead producer Jason Pace in an attempt to understand just what it takes to bring one of the most beloved FPS' of all time to a new genre, and a possible new audience.
This game looks awesome. It should be interesting to see what the developers have to say!
I wonder if they mention Starcraft. Seems like a connection might be made there.
That's awesome! I can't wait for this game
im still not too sure about this, halo is a shooter not a real time strategy game, do you really think they can make this work?
more goodness form the halo universe inbound! it's been too long!
That it is... not to see if ensemble last project can revolutionize RTS on consoles like they did for PC.
so long as it's half-decent then i'll be happy. pretty much all console based RTS game are a chore to play - they just haven't tought out the controls well enough.
it has been a while since weve seen some halo goodness
...is what, I'm guessing, about half the game-playing population will be saying after getting a taste. Based on my game retail experience with this title thus far, it could be even a higher percentage! Still, I've personally got faith in this development team and can't WAIT to read it.
Too bad that the dev team got canned as soon as the project went out the door! damn you economy!
Dude, that's not a bad thing. More of the same? ick.
I'm gonna have to agree with Rob.. This is a great thing.. RTS with our favorite franchise.. =)
i dont want more of the same, but when franchises do things like this it usually marks their downfall
How is Halo Wars more of the same?
Wow, it's really cool to see something like this. Looks like my beloved Starcraft!
Doesn't it? =D
What's the next step for halo? Puzzle games?
wouldnt put it past them, it would be like streetfighter
it looks alright, but i still say halo has no place on something like this
We'll see Neco - I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised.
This looks awesome and i hope they got the controls down. They said they remade the controls from scratch, its their own control scheme so it would make sense that it would fit the game like a glove. (Lets Hope). What would also be a cool thing if Blizzard had a hand in this then it would truely be remarkable game. All their games have been AAA titles....well least the big ones everyone knows about.
While I agree the Blizzard touch is near-magical, I think the development team is going for broke here. I'd wager this will be absolutely top-shelf RTS gaming, whether you're a fan of the genre or not.
