New screenshots have been released showing off more of the single player campaign for Halo 3, the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive first person shooter from Bungie and Microsoft.
in motion i thought the new trailer was quite poor !
i wonder if it was just a bad edited trailer !
i know they don't want to ruin the game but if it was me i would have shown the first level being played !
maybe stuff like that will come during the week.
i think the way it works now is the big three do a small conference then the publishers show (pay for) the individual stuff during the week.
Nice indeed, it's true that still images are often seen better in detail than an image in motion, unless it's slow, but since these are incredible fast paced motions, it's really hard to stop and admire the detail that can be seen once a picture is locked into place, even harder since video distorts and lessens the visual detail, unless you're looking at it running on your own personal screen, even then it depends on what you're running it on! Isn't life just so complicated! ;)
oh man, it's the loch ness monster
...regardless of what some people have been saying about being a little disappointed I'm still getting Halo 3. It may not be the best looking game (still damn nice though!!!!) but its a franchise I have enjoyed playing up till now and I cant see this one being any different in that regard.
No matter what you say about either format - its great to be a gamer right now!
If not for the online, but just to finally see how the story will end! It's great to know the Arbiter WILL be working beside the MC, but there is still distrust, as in the trailer MC runs up to the Arbiter and holds what appears to be a Magnum to his throat, but there is a short image of them standing together on a rocky cliff overlooking something.
Can anyone verify that they are from actual gameplay?
well, i'm not sure if it's gameplay or not, but bear in mind that the Beta is the unfinished version, and also the multiplayer is always lower graphical quality than the singleplayer to reduce lag.
This is true in game, the Beta had most of the effects turned off (no HDR for example).
It looks pretty damn good I'd say.
The brutes face is hilarious. its good. but scary funny. pics look great though. gonna be alot of fun.
I really like what they've done with the visor effect on the hud. It looks like you inside the helmet.
i hope that's removable, I like to have a full view
Well it doesn't obstruct the view. It's transparent but I suppose it might be annoying to some.
gets better and better every time i see it .
cant wait .
Thats more like it!! very purty!!
Just look at the Killzone 2 screens. ANYTHING can be done, it just takes TIME! Guerilla took they're time on Killzone and Result. Although, i think seeing the stuff from GOW, PGR4 and COD4 the Killzone seems a fair bit less impressive, but impressive nonetheless.
The quality of the trailer is poor.
... of your intelligence and judgement is poor.
No one has mentioned this before:
Halo 3's biggest weakness is the character motions. Visually it's beautiful, but the character movements are stiff and unnatural. They also lack facial expression and body language. Characters in Halo 3 don't move and express like real people.
I agree, except if you're including Halo CE. Halo CE had the best animations for single player, I don't know how they could fck it up in Halo 2. I'll wait 'till I see Halo 3's to know for sure.
all graphics is ok and some times AWESOME.. but Trees is so last gen..
they must fix it in Final version.. anyway Im not a HALO fan .. so dont listen to my words.. :)
Looks fantastic. Love the new marines.
Yeah one of the pics the tree leaves need some work but everything else looks awesome, I like the color and tone, textures and yes this is in-game.
How long will it take to make 4 million + game discs do cover all the pre-orders?
only 2 1/2 months to go until its released.
Man I can't wait for Halo 3 and Killzone 2, both of them games are gonna be awesome. I gotta get a PS3 soon for Killzone 2 and I also need to preorder the Halo 3 Legendary edition.
And so comes out the BEAST that is HALO 3. Come on did anyone think that MS's flagship title would be anything less??? those were some impressive looking screens
i wonder why the full res. pics are 1920X1080
gorgeous man, i really think so. looks miles beyond the beta, which i'm hoping will have a few more layers of polish applied. really though, these campaign pics, the colors are very rich and everything seems very dense. check out the shot of chief with the arbiter- amazing details, lighting, etc. beautiful, and i love the first person shot, seeing the edge of the visor, metroid prime style. immersive. i think it all looks quite lovely. i know it's only stills, but it seems so...fluid, smooth. can't wait for the campaign! i really really hope that it's a looong campaing though, 10 hours or under i'll be disappointed.
Yay! The Arbiter is back.
I did a screen by screen look and i noticed some very interesting stuff
In frame 00:00:49.307 you can see that a brute has a strange gun on his back and he is dropping a red orb piece of equipment.
In frame 00:02:11.723 you can see so far away that the forerunner ship is in view and in the top left of the frame you can see a covenant ship that is moving and it has to be miles away. The environments are huge
To those who say it looks like halo two I suggest going to frame 00:01:00.507 and look at the detail in the buggers. They have WAY more polygons in them than they did in halo 2.
Frame 00:01:13.107, what is the piece of equipment the chief is rocking in the upper left hand corner?
Frame 00:01:15.382, look at the bad arse hologram of the prophet on the left. Also we get to see the 4th grenade emblem in this frame.
Frame 00:01:27.982, what is the strange blue thing with and odd yet symmetrical black triangular top coming out of the planet?
Frame 00:01:39.707, warthog with 4 seats.
Frame 00:01:42.157, is just simply stunning; the lighting on the base to the right is amazing! Move slowly ahead you see that we have a new scarab, 2 banshees, some strange new craft, 3 warthogs and a ton of guys in or on each all fighting at once!
Frame 00:01:44.607, shows the arbiter on top of this same scarab with a new gun laying waste to the troops on top.
Frame 00:01:46.707 we see that to the left of this same battle we also have 3 covy drops ships , 3 banshees and what looks like some kind of human battle ship. Keep in mind this is obviously the same place that
frame 00:01:42.157 was going on at and the angle was different so that would put 5 banshees, 3 drop ships, the new scarab (with a deck full of guys), 3 warthogs (with 2- 3 troops in each) Some kind of battle cruiser, the strange new craft between the 2 banshees from the right, the chief and the arbiter all in one place all fighting with zero frame drop. SCALE is what halo 3 is obviously about.
