The Halo franchise is arguably the biggest right now. It's become part of the American culture; and anything that the Halo brand is slapped on becomes gold. Yes, it's indeed huge.
And as well, the biggest and best looking game of 2010. Halo FTW, Goty 2k10 with ease.
I don't think it will be that easy Foxgod. It has strong competition. Extremely strong competition. Looks great though.
one of the biggest, easily. Best Looking.. it's got alot to prove. The beta is gonna be awesome either way! But this is going to be Bungie's finest work yet!
yeah, it's too early to call GoTY, but it'll surely be a strong competitor. If anything games like God of War III, Heavy Rain and Mass Effect 2 should encourage Bungie to put out their best product.....ever?
wow I hope to get this really soon I can't wait to reach this game
best selling ? yes best looking ? LMAO !
Reach is definitely looking like the best Halo to date. Halo 1 was just amazing and the story mode campaign was just too epic. ODST was a start for Bungie getting back to that greatness in storytelling now just hope they deliver with Reach. Can't wait
not sure about "best-selling"... i highly doubt it.
Halo reach is going to be amazing but it has crysis 2 nipping at it's heals.
Can I have some of that cool-aid?
You're already having it
halo reach will own 2010 simple realy
Very deep response. How does it feel to selectively side with fanboys whenever it pleases you? I thought all you wanted was "serious conversation". BTW, how do you manage to be ignored by more people than I am and yet have so many bubbles? Especially after all the fallacies you spout and all the trash you talk.
What game on console looks as good ad Reach while still in beta? The only games on console this year to top Reach are Alan Wake and Metro 2033 and both are 360.
foxgod needs to put the crack pipe down, its messing up his head. Reach one of the best looking games of the year? LOL

How can you have a problem with Van-essa 'selectively siding with fanboys' when you are one of the most annoying fanboys on this site? I mean look at your pathetic disp pic.. You think that what you constantly spurt out is not trash? Now i can't speak for anyone else but i don't ignore you because your comments are usually so pathetically childish that if they were hidden i wouldn't be able to laugh at your expense..
but best game? most xbox owner already said ME2 is the best xbox360 exclusive GOTY.
Hardly. Best value and long term fun factor? Of course. Halo games are meant to be enjoyed for years after it's release. This may well be the best Halo game ever. But it by no means beats GOW 3 in terms of graphics.
i don't think it will be even best seller if sony release GT5 this year .
Do you really think GT5 will sell that much? How much would you say? 10 mil? Hell no! No way a car game on the PS3 outsells the 360's most popular fps. Sorry. I think a max of 5 mil sold for GT5, which is very good btw.
“The screenshots look unmistakably like the game we’ve all been playing for the past nine years running...the mag said! but bungie is saying its their biggest and most powerful halo on a completely new engine??? enjoy playing halo 3 all over again w/ new maps
they 'never' said it was a 'new' engine...
Yeah because you should definitely expect it to look nothing like a Halo game at all...
they're making a halo game that looks like halo, I'm shocked /s.
I watched a video/making of REACH on bungies website and the designers/director was saying it was a new engine being built from the ground up....look for it and youll find it! I guess you guys never get tired of playing the same game over and over again..and still fork up $60 every time bungie says its a new HALO...haha
It's a stripped down Halo 3 engine with upgrades. Engine has the same base but has been rebuilt almost entirely.
Get your facts straight. There's a difference between an engine being built from the ground up and and engine being gutted a re-worked which is what Bungie did for Reach. Hey and you know God of War 3 runs on the God of War 2 engine which was ported to PS3, right? Developers do these types of things all the time. Bungie did it with Halo 2's engine too so just grow up and enjoy games.
Droids are so jealous of Halo, maybe it's because they don't have a game this big.
Ahh Jason, Gran Turismo.
Enjoy playing Halo 3 all over again xbots...
this game will suck, stupid people will buy like they allays do
Well it'll definitely be the best Halo game Bungie has created and without question one of the best games of 2010. Whether it's GOTY or not is debatable. There are so many games this year I can see the vote being rather close no matter who wins. The beta can't come soon enough! Love me some Halo.
the most powerful heater
Cant wait as long as the story good 9-12 hours and has same amazing gamplay that all halo games have i will buy day one graphics on halo dont bother me that much because halo is all in the gamplay for me.
For 360 standards but frankly pales in comparison to PS3 exclusives.. Im just still waiting on when the 360 will have a exclusive that looks as good as the first Uncharted...
Wrong zone little guy.
In your eyes it doesn't matter how good 360 games look. Even if they looked ten times better you would still claim they didn't. I hope Halo: Reach looks extremely good though, since graphics has always been the reason why Halo is so popular.
The thing is, the first Uncharted isn't as impressive, visually, as Sony Fanboys say it is. It looks really good, but Sony Fanboys overhype it.
i agree, the first uncharted is very nice looking, but not what people make out uncharted 2 however is a different story
Yeah, Uncharted 2 looks amazing. It's very impressive how much Naughty Dog was able to upgrade the game over the first one.
Not the best looking, but honestly I can say that no matter how much I've liked Sony and PlayStation over the years, I've always loved Halo's gameplay. Bungie said they were returning to the roots of Halo:CE, and along with this fancy new game engine that looks to totally get rid of that purple/pink cartoon alien feel and make it mature and gritty and dark like Halo is supposed to be (or at least that's the impressions the novels give you), I'm honestly looking forward to it.
Your opinion doesn't make anything fact. FACT.
Halo has always been a fun game but its the ONLY game that defines the Xbox brand while the PS3 has ton of games that define the PS3 brand.
But is this a PS3 game? Is it in the PS3 section? No, so why are you here then?
what do you call fable, forza, project gotham racing, viva pinata, banjo kazooie, gears of war, crackdown, mass effect, etc?
Ivan just got OWNED!
@ Xi I agree he is wrong but your list is very faulted. As far as defining the "Xbox 360"... fable- PC/360 forza- Fair enough but to sony fans this is the poor mans sim racer... project gotham racing- Same as above for the most part... viva pinata- If you want that to be your mascot then rock on. banjo kazooie- Defined by nintendo firstly. Also it is not a good game to call for the 360... gears of war- PC/360 crackdown- Game was glitchy and sub par graphics... I mean you could be walkin around in a sewer and teh guy over comms would say 'Hey I can see my house from here"... The game had it's moments but in the end... mass effect- PC/360 I guess in the end I think he means nothing on the 360 defines it like God of War or Uncharted or MAG or The Last Guardian or Killzone 2 or GT5 or so many others. Groundbreaking games. Pushing the limits of size, scale, players, graphics, story, interactivity... you name it. If you want banjo kazooie, Viva pinata and Crackdown then by all means bro... Halo is the 360 mascott and kinda the only real defining game. I mean... Heres where it's at ok Ask any Sony Fanboy what game they think of when they hear Playstation. Some will say Metal gear solid. Some will say Final Fantasy. Some will say God of WAr. Some will say blah blah blah... Ask a 360 fan and they will 95% of the time say "Halo"... Thats the point...
the largest known 'playstation' games have been multiplatform, final fantasy, grand theft auto, mgs (excluding 4), hence why sony is trying soooo hard to develop kratos and drake into new icons. Microsoft has it's icons. Viva for children, forza for racing fans, halo for fps, gears for tps, fable for rpg, rareware etc. Sony has kratos and drake. And that's it. Also, i don't see a single game you mentioned as groundbraking as halo and forza. LBP is the most ground breaking thing on the ps3, and even then it's a glorified gmod.
I would also say sack boy, cloud and ratchet are pretty symbolic of the ps brand as well. It's obvious we won't see eye to eye on this so I'll drop it. Game on xi
well i hope this will be the best halo of the series. The previous ones were CRAP to begin with lmao!
"most powerful" Yeah, maybe in storytelling, but the graphics look only marginally better than halo 3. It`s so funny, Xbots were saying this was going to be a killzone 2 killer. Pretty funny how fast that one died out huh?
KZ 2 killed itself a looonng time ago! graphics can only hold a game for so long, you know....
I know why you hate kilzone so much. It's because you wanted to play it so bad cause it was such a mind blowing experience. And when you bought it and brought it home and got online you found out the learning curve was to big and that you sucked at it. And it frustrated you so much that it burned your little black soul. OT reach looks better than 3 but not way better. Maybe now it'll be in high def. And the jet packs look lame.
I really can't wait to get my hands on the Beta and see how thing work out. Needle Rifles, Armor Abilities. Expect hours on hours of Halo Madness. And expect ALOT of people to be playing. I'm not going to go as far to say that Reach will be GOTY, because when it comes to overall GOTY Candidates, GOW3 is going to sit PRETTY high on the totem pole, but I will say that if Bungie delivers the kind of experience they hope to, it could be a serious challenger. GOTY or not though, Reach will be played clean into 2012, and that's what matters most.
Oh please, After all the PS3 games 360 fans have spoiled the endings for, they need to learn to deal with it.
And what does that have to do with anything? Oh and you might want to learn to reply to people. Helps the flow of discussion, no matter how terrible your points are.
Hold on to your dildos, droids!
is that mean you already hold your? :P
Wouldn't touch it. Who knows where it's been? You might have been alone playing Uncharted 2 and felt like getting cosy with Nathan. The jungle scene where he compliments another guy for having a nice ass is pretty intense.
And this has to do what with Halo?
Great year for FPS lovers. Battlefield BC 2, Metro 2033, and later Halo: Reach. What more can you ask for? :)
People seriously need to stop saying 'its not as good looking as this or that game'. Any game can look good if its as linear and as restricted as [*INSERT GAME*] is. Im not saying its bad thing but its the truth. According to Bungie the Halo MP trailer was a placholder http://www.bungie.net/News/...
The people who didn't have their Fanboy goggles on already came to the conclusion that alot of what we saw in the Trailer was placeholders. Alot of textures were missing and the was very little, if any lighting at all. As I said before, BETA then judge. Till then, you just look like an idiot, especially if it turns out to look better than you made it out to be. But of course, the site doesn't have all that many clear thinkers. BUt you and I know that already.
Well of course its the most powerful and content rich game they have ever created. The newest game by any developer is always "their greatest work yet". Kind of a pointless statement. With that said I agree it looks pretty awesome and hopefully the story and refinements make it the best Halo yet.
So prior to Aliens Vs. Predator Rebellion's greatest was Rogue Warrior? Lol. I don't think your theory works very well.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Ps3 fanboys don't take my bubbles pretty please!!!
It doesnt land till late September, theres a ton of more games to look forward to that are easily closer for release.
Haha..I was just saying a developer always comments on how their latest project is the greatest game they have ever put together....whether it is or not ;) I was pretty dissapointed with ODST so I am hoping Bungie delivers on all fronts with this one! I know those rocket packs looked pretty fun =)
going to be great but Halo 3 will remain the best till they get back to making a real Halo game.
