Abstract360 takes a look at the latest Halo: Reach trailer and predicts what we could possibly expect from Halo: Reach.
Sh!tloads of 360's sold. (SUCCESS) Sh!tloads of copies sold. (SUCCESS) Greatest FPS of the year. (SUCCESS) And the death of the Ps3. (SUCCESS) Overall, expect a success.
I feel sorry for you.
Success yes, but a quality game? No. It will be like any other Halo game: average but because of marketing and hype it will sell millions. I feel bad for 360 users, they are being bought off by Microsoft's awesome marketing and getting railed by the back like cheap whores but loving every minute of it.
That what the bots said about Halo 3 (MW killed it) & RRODST (Flop of the year, bad scores + ignored by 8 million Halo fans)... I expect the same things from the old tired milked franchise with a better paint... that it.
Well F U all! lol I will never forget the 1st 2yrs of the PS3 when you all tried to kill it off. Now, every chance a get to smash your hypocrisy in your face, I will. Halo Reach is yet another thumbed down kiddy shooter with laughable story line fit only for young teens. F* the 360 fanbase, F* the 360 and F* MS. I won't stop pointing and speaking out to show your vile hypocrisy. I won't stop 'till the 360 base and the 360 die off. F U all, halo is rubbish kiddy garbage. :D
Oh how sad Chubear looks like the Halo Reach graphics made you wet yourself, here take this http://www.kleenex.com clean some of that up before it starts to stink... oh to late.
You're an f-n moron, Chubear. Truly a delusional, lost, sad, pathetic, sheep. You're not a gamer, you're just some loser with a keyboard and an unhealthy hate-filled agenda. Vete a la chingada, pendejo. Halo Reach looks great and nothing you can say changes a thing.
Let it all out....jackass.
@r0s3b0wl23 - Sorry, but hype and advertising will only carry a series so far. If Halo was lackluster, it wouldn't sell as much as it does, it wouldn't create as much online traffic as it does, and the games wouldn't get as high of scores as they do, period. LOL at Chubear. Sorry, but words of people on a gaming website won't determine if a console gets killed off. No one tried to "kill off" the PS3. It's a freakin gaming console for crying out loud. Did it get made fun of early on? Yes, but it deserved to. It's originally conceived controller was shaped like a boomerang, it had busts like Lair and Haze, it was extremely overpriced and it had a lack of good games, and the 360 consistently beat it (and still does) when multiconsole games were compared on the two. Now the PS3 has hit its stride and is doing very well. I suggest you go play it instead of worrying about a console that doesn't matter to you anyway.
Chubear, how is any of that related to this article? Don't you have games to play on your PS3? If so, why don't you go play them instead of spewing your nonsense all over N4G?
Man ChuBear is imploding. This is very funny to watch. Especially seeing as he is talking a load of crap/spam that no one cares or wants to listen to. Halo Reach looked good but we don't know enough about it yet to comment in depth yet. Wheres this paranoia come from? Is it cos its Halo? Or cos its on the xbox?
You sir are need to stay the hell out of 360 thread's no one what's to read your complete and utter tripe. Let the Halo fan's enjoy there articles. There all considerate enough to not spread complete crap like that in threads bout Uncharted 2 and other great PS3 titles. So why on earth are you here talking out of your A-hole? I mean dam maybe its insecurity for buying a console that's in last place. But you shouldn't feel that way the PS3 is a great system I love it I use it as a media hub and for PS3 exclusives all the time. Despite what you may think spouting off rubbish like that ain't supporting your beloved Sony, Your giving them a bad name knowing there brand can create completely illogical e-thugs like yourself.
first impression from the trailer where not that good but after closer look of the trailer if everything is in game the game looks pretty damn good. What too expect; -bigger fights, large/huge open battle fields, -finally more realistic vegetation, wind animations -larger versions of pelicans with mounted machine gun and small jetengines, -more character development/hopefully better story, -4 player co-op, no master chief?, no more lone wolf/more teamwork.
I'm willing to bet Reach will have a huge world to explore. Looking forward to seeing game play and hoping it's better than CE . edit above: I would love a cover system kinda like KZ2.
We can expect that badd ass dark and gritty halo game that I've always wanted. We can expect no lame masterchief, and we can also expect some nice graphics. We can also expect the story to be that much better due to the fact that it's being modeled around the Fall of Reach book(yes?)
dont worry, hes just mad that even though uncharted 2 won goty no one seems to give two sh!ts after seeing the reach trailer
@Menech, ah my friend, I wish you could have seen the Killzone 2 articles. Back when Killzone 2 and Gears 2 were going head to head. Oh the mud slinging that came from both sides back then.
I think it is either a glitch or PS3 fans with multiple accounts are running wild with copy and pasting. OT: Why it is all graphics 24/7 a day here on N4G. Game A does not look as good as game B. Please, can we just enjoy games for what they are for once. SO what if Reach only look a little bit better than Halo 3 at the end, as long it has a good co op campaign, new ideas added to the gamplay, and have the legendary Bungie online support and fun factor.. that is all you can ask for. Graphics can only take you so far. KZ2 really is having a rough time online ever since MW2 came out and Halo 3 still have tens of thousands of players to play with online even after 2 years upon its release. I have no doubt Halo Reach can achieve graphics close to the one shown in the trailer. And like Kurt Angle once said, "That my friend, IT'S TRUE"
Addictive gameplay Martin O Donnel music Better graphics Excellent map design Cutomizable characters Covenant Elites More badass Vehicles Masive online community More features Perks Cool characters 4 player co-op Awesome single player exprience Multiplayer Firefight Basically everything
What to expect? I'm hoping we'll seem some big battles during campaign and a more refined multiplayer. Come on Bungie, you can do it!
We have already been through this. Killzone 2 trailer did not match up to the final product. Not that the final product was bad, but the trailer did not match up to the gameplay, nor is it supposed to. A lot of people hyped it as in-game. Trailers never look as good as the real thing and Killzone is no different.
From Halo to Halo 2 to Halo 3, what gamers received was more of the same, and there ain't a damn thing wrong with that. I loved all three Halo games but still feel that the first was my favorite. Since then the games have just continued that same story with the same gameplay with tweaked graphics and gamers loved it. This article is bunk. I can't agree with any of their conclusions based off the video I saw. It's just pure speculation. Gamers have flocked to Halo three times using the current template, and even bought onto a full priced expansion that only offered 2-3 hours new gameplay. Why on earth would Bungie mess with that? They wouldn't. Edit Below: Excuse me? I'm not following. Is there something wrong with the point I brought up? You see, I can't tell considering you didn't actually address what I said, you just attacked me for some reason. Do you have a point? You admit yourself you didn't even read the post. And for the love of god, it's Darkride, like the carnival ride. Learn to read. Gamers are trying to talk here. Run along.
"Darkrider66" and without even reading his post I new it would be a stealth troll post lol. Knock it off dude, you're transparent. Anyway, what can we expect with Halo Reach ? A N4G meltdown, huge tears from haters and massive anti Halo campaigns ;) edit: @darkrider, I read your post, I meant to say without reading your post I knew ALREADY what you woukd say, and after reading well, Im not surprised.
@ Chubear stop chatting S£^%t... yes I have seen the reach video. yes I think it looks great... I am a big halo fan, but NO, i will not pay $100 for live. first of all, lets see if they do try to charge that amount for live anyway.. secondly, you said look at how all the 360 fans are going nutz over reach video and then go and quote me.... find me one comment from myself in any other reach article. take your hate move to the open zone.
I still don't understand what your issue with my post was. Let's try this again. Maybe I can simplify it for you if you're confused. Halo sold lots. Excellent game loved by millions, myself included. Halo 2 came out. Slightly better graphics. But same game pretty much. Nothing wrong with that. Loved and bought by millions. Still played now. Halo 3 came out. Again, better graphics but similar gameplay. Gamers said "No problem with that! These games are awesome." Sold millions. Now Halo reach is coming out. Why would Bungie change a damn thing? I don't want them to change anything! I know all I want are new missions, new maps and maybe a bit longer. Now, that's as simple as I can put it. Perhaps you didn't understand my original post. If you have a reason why you think Bungie would change things up, by all means tell us. These forums are for gamer debate. I'd love to hear why you think they'd mess with so obviously a winning strategy. Unless your whole point on these forums is not to actually talk about games but just to belittle other members. If so, knock yourself out. Open Zone is that way --> Edit: And yet another phantom disagree. Seriously, if you don't speak up, how is anyone to know what you're disagreeing with. Did I miss something? Are my conclusions wrong? Is my reasoning wrong? Why are some of you so afraid to actually talk to other gamers? That's what these forums are for! If anyone actually wants to talk about what they expect from Halo Reach instead of just acting like jr high kids, maybe real gamers should just make the Open Zone our home for debate and maybe these fanboys will leave us the hell alone there.
uuuuum........ ahelluvalot! ;)
old man, I haven't been on n4g for a few months now, but the very first halo thread I read your name just jumped out( like the gfx for REACH) Give it a rest man, all this " I love Halo, but I hate it more" crp was old then and it is still just as old now on tipic: WOW this game is gonna be awesome
What to expect ? I don't expect anything ... i just want bungie to list what changes they've made to the gameplay and story and that's it ... All of you will expect too much and some of you will be disapointed over nothing ... the others will buy it anyway so ....
darkride:"The "G" stands for gamers. That's what it's all about. Leave your ridiculous "console wars" out of this." And that statement comes out of a guys mouth that runs a pro ps3 anti 360 blog-thing...or ran it? You still updating it?
a Halo game where you don't get to play most of the time as Master Chief should not be labelled Halo. besides too many Halo's coming out too quick even though they're not really Halo games (Halo wars anyone? wasn't even developed by Bungie :/).. if any game gets more than 1 game per year, its called miserably milking the game..
I expect it to ge great but I also expect a better game with better graphics and better everything than Halo 3 X odst. Give me that and I'll hop on the Halo Train because I've never been a fan.
one thing i got from the trailer was "this our new No.6?" so i'm thinking 6player co-op?
hopefully Halo doesn't lose its colors because in the trailer I only saw darkish grayish colors. can't wait for the beta though
You're going to be disappointed cause they definitely toned down the rainbow colour scheme significantly.
pfft aww man :( Go go power rangers!
Reach will still have Purple, Green, Blue and Pink armour just not as ..erm, fruity.
Epicness... Looks like Halo Reach is already becoming greatness with all this coverage its getting.. Didnt Uncharted 2 just win GOTY.?
This boring trailer is far from epic. At least show gameplay. I guess GDC will reveal gameplay, but I doubt it. You probably won't see real play until it's in your xbox while wondering why Edge gave it 10/10. lol
In the trailer, all of the Spartans have different armor. It would be pretty damn cool if players could customize their armor (not just different armor permutations) in multiplayer.
That actually would be pretty awesome.
- Exactly like Halo 3 - Slightly improved graphics - Same 8v8 we've been stuck with for 6 years now. - 3 million sales day one - 90+ Metacritic score Yeah...Life sucks. inb4 Agree(5) | Disagree(30)
Not sure on this yet but I heard MP is going to be upped a bit but I've heard conflicting mgs of 10v10 to 16v16 but apparently, halo is finally going to have a leveling perk system... I don't think their base will like that very much but hey, it's halo, they'll suck it up and love it. If Reache's MP is indeed 16v16, watch them lose their minds as if it's revolutionary but completely ignore what they're experiencing in year 5 is still less than what others have been experiencing since DAY ONE on another console. Back then it's was call unnecessary and 8v8 is the sweet spot. I wonder what they'll say with 10v10 or 16v16 now in halo :/ lol
So there actually WILL be a larger multiplayer? That's good, because it's been stuck at 8v8 since Halo 1 on PC. I don't think it will go as high as 16v16, though, at least not without dedicated servers (it lags quite a bit now with 8v8 P2P). >.> Perks: That could work, too. As long as there aren't any ridiculously overpowered ones like Cold-Blooded + Ninja GODDAMN WHY DOES EVERYBODY HAVE TO USE THAT? >.<
NONONOONNONONONONNOONONNO NO PERKS Perks ruined Call of Duty for me completely, I do not want Halo ruined with perks. Maybe if we keep the perks to the gameplay designs somehow, (Active cloaking, advanced shields ect, spawn with a mountable turret perhaps?) But definitely do not want perks in Halo Reach.
Same Crap, In The New Wrap.
jealous much? Have you seen the HD trailer? and you guys said better than Killzone 2 graphics couldn't be done... oh that must be why you're pissed, to much truth.
hmm you think they was killzone graphics?? jelious much?
Who said Killzone 2 graphics couldn't be beaten? Graphics get better as time progresses. Killzone 2 is over a year old now. It will be beaten eventually although in my opinion the reach graphics did look a little bland, but not bad mind you.
I expect more "bu-bu-bu-but teh salez!" comments from the Xbozos after Halo Roach gets released.
Maybe by the time Reach is released the PS3 will have a game break the 4 millon mark. Meanwhile Halo 3 sells over 12 million and Reach sells more than Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, LBP and R&C in a single day. Halo Reach also will have more gamers online than all the biggest PS3 games combined. Reach also shuts droids and PS3 devs up by proving that better than Killzone 2 graphics can in fact be done on the 360... LOL and there is still a year left for polish.
GT5P (Demo) passed 4 million & outsold Flopza 2 but i guess your just stupid to realize that... Here take this http://www.kleenex.com clean some of that up before it starts to stink... oh to late.
carfull with the stupid remark you could get banned happened to me but you're a droid on N4G so you should be just fine.
I expect even more generic shooter action.
Halo Reach Toothbrush Halo Reach Slurpee Halo Reach Toys Halo Reach BK Meal Halo Reach commercials that are better than the actual game Halo Reach Energy Drinks Halo Reach Reviewers falling for the hype Halo Reach selling 2.4 million+ in 24 hours Halo Reach RROD cases Halo Reach pirated copies Halo Reach bans from Xbox LIVE lol
Reach should be a blast to play for Halo and non-halo fans alike. The trailers show some depth to the story, the battles are being proposed as epic, and with so many spartans what else would you expect? Reach might be a better reason to own a 360 than Halo3 is, because Halo 3 is too much like Halo 2, but reach is looking mighty sweet, and if the engine is done right i see greatness in this game. Im not a halo fan, but this game has my attention. 2010 is loaded with AAA games, and i see Halo Reach standing proud and firm alongside GoW3, Heavy Rain, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake All greatly expected games that PS360 owners can rejoice about. Gaming this gen is so awesome :)
360 can't handle 7.1 Dolby surround, so dream on. The video, it's just a video nothing so special and definitely not sick. The video from Mass effect 2 look more sick than this video.
ok buddy, whatever makes you happy
Of course, these all look crap. Keep spewing your damage control nonsense http://i795.photobucket.com... http://i795.photobucket.com... http://i795.photobucket.com... http://i795.photobucket.com... http://i795.photobucket.com... http://i795.photobucket.com...
I expect comments like "gaylo" and "RRODST" and "xbozoxs" and "PSN is better because more mature people play it" and "halo is for 12 year olds". You know, the typical garbage from ps3 only losers because they will never get to play it, while everybody else can`t stop talking about it.
That whole more mature thing is pure BS and N4G comment sections prove it. I mean look at all these completely idiotic comments.. It would take a full day just to respond to each of them.. Halo: Reach looks like it might actually deliver for me. I am very impressed with what I saw in this trailer but need some pure game play because I know how these early trailers/teasers can be deceptive.
Another thing that proves that is bullsh!t is that I play Uncharted 2 online all the time and I can't believe what a-holes many of the players are, especially if you are a higher rank and play against a lot of other higher ranks. People talk so much trash and they seem very immature. A lot of them can't seem to lose with dignity. In summary, I haven't found PSN to be any better in that regard than Xbox LIVE. Not to mention that LIVE gives you more tools to deal with such people.
Kind of sad really, on topic: the one thing I can expect of reach is that it's going to be fun.
Sorry PS3 Fans. It sucks. Being a PS3 Supporter is like being an Oakland Raiders Fan in the NFL. You were once good. You have a history and a mystique about you. You may even have an awesome logo. But the hierarchy in your corporation doesn't know what their doing. And you haven't "won" since the 90's. I know. It hurts. $599.00 is a lot of money for a BluRay Player. And when Halo: Reach releases, we'll be experencing nirvana. And you'll be LISTENING to Nirvana from your PS3 BluRay Player. Have fun with God of War III. (LOL) NO. ONE. CARES.
More like we can expect all 360 fanboys to focus on Reach for the rest of this generation, have fun while I go play Uncharted 2 then some Demon Souls. And btw the most impressive game this gen so far is Uncharted 2 and the nr 1 conteder who can possibly one up it is The Last Guardian.
