Halo 3: The beta, now in motion.
I can hardly wait.
wow, this is torture
looks so good
Valhalla get! IMO, the best looking map in the Beta.
just makes me even more anxious.
The bubble shield looks alot better now since you can hardly see it from far away , can't wait , 4 days .
This looks really good and fun!
I havn't got Crackdown yet but how do you get the invite , do you just put the disk in and download the Beta on the 15th or do you have to type in a code??
I'll be getting no sleep.
Good ol' halo fun!!!
looks same as halo 2 tbh but cleaned up and new maps
The game looks great. This game makes me want my old 360.
Edit: why do people in these videos always suck.
Edit two: Kill Joy? lol that's awesome.
it's called a sequel genius, were you expecting a different game?
and this is the first build of the game
I've been playing this all damn day long and I will never get sick of it.
It's good to be a moderator on B.net.
And yes I'm bragging and acting like a child... That's How Good It Is.
And @ IrishAssassin - If you have a Friends and Family invite, you punch in the code. If you go the Crackdown route, you wait for the 16th and put in the disc, and download directly from the downloads section of the main menu. You will need the (Crackdown) disc to play.
hmmm what can keep my entertained til then? ..... C&C3? Forza Motorsport 2 demo? Gears of War (with new maps)? Crackdown (with the new update)? =D and then theres my other games i havnt touched for a while! =D ooo i am not going to be bored for a long time lol!
P.S. cant wait to try this out! =D
I just wish I was better.
looks a$$ boring...yawnnn
Not to be a partypooper, but Halo 3 in its current state looks better than Halo 2, but not Leagues and Bounds. Is this supposed to be next-gen? Gears looks a lot better. A lot of games coming for 360 and PS3 look better. Lost Odyssey, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Too Human Trilogy, The Getaway, Lair, Heavenly Sword, War Devil, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, look significantly better than this, for what we've seen.
By the way: Beta means it's near final or debugging phase, so don't get your hopes high up into thinking that it'll get better.
14.1 First, to your (relatively) relevant point:
What you say would make sense if what I'm actually criticizing (the graphics) required myself to play the game to have a valid point. Since graphics are in no way related to the interaction between man and man or man and AI on a game, but simply to visuals, clearly one just needs to see the game. Which is what this thread is all about. So, -1 for you. And as I said, I know it's a beta, so it might get better; I just don't have my hopes up for it.
To your irrelevant point:
You have a problem with me defending kevin? So you say he is a raving lunatic fanboy, maybe that is true. But if he makes a point, regardless of how stupid, idiotic, mind-retarding he sounds, and you or anyone simply reply with "ignore him lol" or "your an idiot lol", what's the point of even posting a reply? So, if you're gonna do something pointless, why are you criticizing my pointless defense? Isn't that invalid and hypocritical criticism?
Who is making fun? Fanboy? If I was a fanboy, why would I be mentioning games for both consoles?
As I said, it does look better. Not what I expected though. Same thing with Forza 2. Same thing with all initial 360 and PS3 games.
I wouldn't expect much better from the likes of you, who would defend a raving fanboy lunatic like "kevin" but absolutely refuse to look at what's right in front of their face (I.E. Specs from the manufacturers in the same thread)
On my 10th game or so now. It's bloody amazing. Completely blows away anything I have played to date, INCLUDING Gears of War. Sure, the models aren't as detailed, but with the sheer amount of data on the screen at once, there's just no comparison from Gears or anything else. 8 person vs. 16 person, 3 unit HUD display compared to what, 15?
Don't make dumb comparisons. I hope as a die hard Sony fan you can learn to just what is instead of what could be.
How about that "Just Wait" argument?
The Beta is sweet, and already looks amazing. Add a few new textures here and there and you're done.
Besides, what do you have to compare it to, Resistance? Looks good, but it don't look as good as this.
why is it the best fanboys can do is make fun of the graphics in a beta build?
also, these vids made me wet myself...
Though most of your points are valid, your reply to 14.1 is wrong. The fact that GameJunkieJim was making was that the amount of things that are going on in Halo in comparison to a title like Gears, means that the graphics cannot be as good. Running Gears graphics etc on a game on the scale of something like Halo is impossible atm. Everything links into one, thats why Gears has little going on at once, but Halo has so much more.
Have you seen Lair? It's of the scale of halo (or even bigger), it has way more detail going on than Gears of War , and it runs at [email protected]
as a gamer, but PS3 being my console of choice, I was impress with the videos, specially the explosions in the snow...
Since i first saw HALO i was never impressed until now...
I gotta say "for now" It looks like it's going to be PURE ONLINE FUN, but I have my doubts on the single player campaign.
Pretty nice footage though overall it looks nice and fun.. cheers for 360 owners.
PS: haha whoever is playing in the third video sucks HARD.
It looks a lot better now then it did previously. But if you have never played Halo before then go pick up a cheap origional Xbox, or get Halo on the PC. You won't be dissappointed.. it sits high up amongst the greatest games of all time.
I knew I saw you from the Bungie website gamejunkiejim. So how is Halo 3 ?
Have you got a chance to even play some of the single lpayer campigan or are you only allowed to play the mutiplayer part of the game.
The video look excellent and IBLEEDBLU and THC PRITCHARD, you guys are Sony fanboys who would say that Halo is boring, well if you think it looks like crap then don't come into this thread and bother commenting.
