New screenshot from Halo Wars.
yea i know i don't play halo
looks intresting i love halo but i will only buy halo wars if it come out on pc pc is best for rts
Its not always about whats the best, its about whats fun and how to reach a great audience.
I remember when playing the original Halo there was an area in the game (can't remember which exactly; it's been so long since I played it) where it was at night and there were LOADS of different types of enemies, on multiple levels and several vehicles and at first I tried to sneak up on them on ground.
But then I found myself a Banshee, went up to a really high bridge with the idea of doing some sneaky sniping BUT instead I just found myself looking down for 15-20 minutes and zooming around at all the cool stuff that was happening below. And every now and then I'd just take out an unsuspecting enemy, he he.
But while up there it really did feel like this could so easily be an RTS. Imagine being able to play on either side and call in a Scorpion or two to pre-secure the area before sending the Spartans in. Then after a bit of fighting send in some Pelicans to drop off some health, weapons and more Spartans while ordering in some rocket launcher equipped fighters to sort out the incoming Covenant Dropships.
How about some optional voice recognition?
That'll be super sweet baby. Let's hope Ensemble Studios can make my dreams a reality!
...that Halo was originally conceived as an RTS, back when it was going to be a Mac exclusive title. ;)
You're right, I didn't know that!
Wow, imagine how different things could have turned out if Halo had never come out on the Xbox or been a console exclusive for it.
The Xbox might have failed and we wouldn't be playing on our 360's today - thank god for Halo!
I own and played/passed halo 1 and 2,and im wondering if halo 3 and halo wars will be in the same game or will be two different separate games,can somebody help me?
I'm pretty sure they'll be two separate games.
Halo 3 will be developed by Bungie and Halo Wars by Ensemble Studios. Although Ensemble did make the Age of Empires series so they should go a good job.
They are in fact two seperate games. Halo 3 is an FPS game while Halo Wars will be an RTS game. Halo Wars is also set to be released definately after Halo 3. I also heard that it will be exclusive to the 360 at least for a while.
I personally think that anyone who even likes halo should just go out and get all four books and the 2 games. Then you will see how epic Halo is. Plus, you can see how they can really expand Halo to many many many directions.
So, to learn to love halo, do the following.
1. Look at tons and tons of halo pictures to get a feel for the visual style to apply to the books.
2. Read Halo: The Fall of Reach
3. Play Halo: Combat Evolved
4. Read Halo: The Flood
5. Read Halo: First Strike
6. Play Halo 2
7. Read Halo: Ghosts of Onyx
8. Play Halo 3
9. Read any new books.
10. Play Halo Wars (time period is supposedly before the events of Halo:CE)
Halo Wars will be exclusive to 360 console-wise, i think its coming to PC though
At the moment Halo Wars is only on the Xbox 360 but i would expect it to come in 2 years time on the PC. I'm gonna get it for the Xbox 360, does it come out this year or next year?
Its clearly an image from a cut scene so who cares? lets see some gameplay footage or images. This artical is just a waste of time.
Anyone else really disappointed with the lack of really good Xbox 360 news of late? The PS3 seems to be getting all the headlines at the moment with some pretty good announcements. I had been hoping for some pretty meaty announcements from GDC07...
MS always vanishes before they drop the bomb it's also because theres more Sony die hards posting news it almost seems like the 360 fans have left the site plus there isn't any 360 fans tring to over hype news. 360 fans would not be talking about average news two to five days after being posted. Sony fans have tooken over this site and it turns people off.
If you haven't noticed the only people posting news on this site are PS3 fans that clearly hate MS and supposed well rounded gamers that are actually wolf/Sony-die hards in sheeps/gamers clothing. All they basiclly do is post good PS3 news and not so good 360 news. Whatever news they post it will have something to do with making the PS3 look better.
I mean come on no one even posted the Too Human being delayed untill 2008 was false story", it's one of the biggest titles for the 360 this year kind of a glimps on how much 360 fans seem to be envoled on this site and how much it has been turned into a PS3 site.
Mate, I've noticed that you've submitted a lot of News Tips. Why don't you take the Contributor Test, then you can post some Xbox 360 stories.
I like both consoles, but you're right there has been a lot of PS3 stories posted recently.
More of us need to become contributors so we can make the site more balanced. I failed the test last time I took it, this time I'll look at the guidelines rather than just try and fluke it!
There will be good news for the Xbox 360 just wait ok.
But is it artwork or in-game?
Turned into a PS3 site, NEVER! Keep the faith my 360 brethren. 8~)
