VGArabia: Bungie has released a new video documentary which shows the devs of the game talking about the upcoming open beta for the hotly anticipated FPS Halo: Reach.
Dammit, you beat my to posting this. Ahh well. Every piece of media makes the wait for the beta even more excruciating. But, thankfully, there's not much waiting left to do! Roll on May 3rd! Day One.
Game looks great, but the profanity used in this video is very unprofessional and should be beneath a developer of this caliber.
"There´s that magical step in the process, and, like, it stops being software, and all of a sudden, it´s more like this thing": "I´m playing with my friends, having a beer. It´s awesome!" May 3rd, gotta get some beer cases ready.
Because it really matters
HALO is FUN PERIOD
We're all mature gamers here. it's a teen + Game right? Beeped words never hurted nobody in the past.
Does AW release on the 3rd. Either way between halo beta and AW. May will be a great month for me
I kinda agree with Bubbles Kitty, Im not sure why the need to use profanity. When your one of the most respected devs in the industry, why not behave like it. But yeah I also agree its no big deal, just would be nice for someone under 40 to have even an ounce of class these days, what ever happen to class you know, why do we all have to act like mouth breathing knuckle dragging white trash, raised in the hills with no proper upbringing?
That's makes a lot of sense. Someone using Bubbles for their avatar saying profanity is unprofessional? Ever actually watch Trailer Park Boys? Anyways this game looks damn sweet. You can tell these guys are so pumped to see the reaction of all their hard work. It's a shame we probably won't have more than 16 players but I guess that's not what the game is intended but it would be nice. I do like the closer knit online games but it would be cool to have the option for some truly massive online matches. Love the customization of getting an online match going. With Halo's popularity they can get away with having so many choices. Now we can hopefully have much funner games with familiar styles of play.
There is a time and a place for everything. Swearing like a drunken sailor while promoting one of the most respected video game franchises in history is neither the time nor the place, in my opinion. I realize why they are doing it, but I believe it cheapens them as a developer, and if I were running things it would not be tolerated.
I see were your coming from bubbles especially given the fact many kids will tune into this as well. @vega: No Alan Wake is out on May 18th along with Red Dead.
I agree with Bubbles, this are professionals and it does not look too good that they are cursing in an official video to promote their product, it does not matter if they want to reach a mature audience, they should not use this kind of tactics, it does not look professional. On topic: 9 more days... =)
I agree with bubbles, too. Game looks AWESOME. Lead Engineering guy who keeps swearing all the time and jabbers like someone with ADHD on a crack binge is NOT. Of course they give him the most camera time because people love trashy low-brow crap these days.
They're bleeped. Who cares? Have any of you listened to their podcasts? Plenty of unbleeped cussing. It's really not a big deal. Bungie is known for just telling it like it is around their community. They don't sugar coat things. I'm glad it finally came out in a ViDoc. They're excited, they're adults, and they cuss. Get over it.
David Jaffe says the F word every 5 seconds, you don't see people complaining about that do you? No one really cares if they curse or not. We're not little kids, at least I'm not.
@ Kigmal well David Jaffe needs to learn that there are places and moments where you can curse and use bad language and places and moment that should not. Like i said, is not professional and it makes them look bad, specially when there are so many kids who play video games and see this videos. Us gamers want everyone to respect us, but if we act like uncivilized people, then who's going to give us that respect. @ Incognegro I agree with you, but us as professionals (in this case Bungie), gamers with professions should have bounderies, i mean when i play my games on line i curse with my friends and have fun, but when doing my profession, key word proffesionals, i don't go around cursing with my clients and customers. It's just not right. Each to their own, but for me it looks bad. Just my opinion.
Last I checked, games like these weren't meant for kids regardless. Despite them getting their hands on them, it's understand that the environment that they're going to be put into can't and won't be moderated for language anyway. Most of the kids that get their hands on the game cuss more than most adults I know anyway. Not justifying that in anyway, but it's just the way of the world. And you're going on that gamers need to be respected and hold themselves in a light that others can respect us, honestly...to hell with that. They either respect us for who we are or not. It shouldn't matter what people perceive us and our medium of choice. Especially when you can even turn on the damn television and see profanity and sex damn near any time of the day. Again, not justifying the nature of these activities, but I refuse to be called black from the pot and question my existence as a kettle.
For gamers everywhere... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
May is looking to be a great month for gamers.
Agreed, I may even have to skip LP2 because I won't have the time.
Man the game looks great,amazing...and looks like Halo MP on steroids,amazing job Bungie.
Yeah I like what they are doing with this game. Every Halo refines the experience a little more and this one looks like it's going to combine the best of each previous installment and then add a bunch of great new features.
EPIC. Did I just see the guy pick up a Burning SKull and hit the enemy with it in the head and killed him making him win 2 points in a Row as a double Kill? Niceeeee.
...titled "Ghost Rider's revenge" or something. :D BTW....the shot of the Gold Spartan coming out of stealth camo was f*cking awesome. You couldn't even see him before.
PS3 can't handle this graphics.
EPIC EPIC.....Best shooter game ever made no one cant match Halo dude Only on xbox 360 VVVVV thats mean all Xbox games for GOTY loool PS3 has no games after GOW2.5 Buhahahaahha
im not exactly a fan of halo.but this looks EPIC im pretty sure the word EPIC wasnt around before halo
I never liked Halo because of bad level design..but special effects here make me wanna try..SFX here loooks superb...and that is just MP beta..looking forward to Single player graphics... btw Gears 3 will have even better single player GFX..the last trailer was no CGI.. go 360 = full use of tesselation, GPGPU, 3 cores and unifite memory architecture = what is next GFX leap forward for 360 now.
This is actually the first time i hear someone complain about halo's level design (even here at N4G). anyway, may 3rd, little more than a week away! =)
Some parts of this video were awesome, like the kill with the skulls. But for me this seams like a big clusterf*ck. Well I'm not the best judge here cause I never really played Halo MP. For me this just looks like total chaos but for someone else this is Halo perfection. I'll try to play Reach when it comes out and see if I'm right or wrong. It's actually better for me if I'm wrong :D
I can kinda see your point but don't judge things especially if you've never even played it..... That's like saying sushi tastes horrible....I've never had it but I just know. Bungie is one heck of a developer and they listen to their fans (unlike some people...looking at you IW,etc.) so if it is too chaotic, they'll fix it....I'll let you know on May 3rd and man, I am so freaking excited. I just got into SC2 beta and Reach is coming up. Betas are getting ridiculous these days
"That's like saying sushi tastes horrible....I've never had it but I just know." I've never tasted crap, but I'm certain it doesn't taste good.
^^^^ I HAVE tried it.. and you're right. :)
This looks awesome only thing i dont like is the one hit melee kills from behind but im just gonna have to get used to them.
its basically the same thing as getting an assassination in Halo 3 except theres an animation
One hit kills from behind has been there since Halo 1. Even Counter Strike has it.
Epic stuff here. I noticed how much faster the game feels, not just the elites. I love how the elites can roll in any direction, or at least it seems they can. A youtube commenter said, "Why do you have to see a 3 second assassination kill every time, why not just melee and move on?" It's already been said in the previews by other sites, the assassination is done only if you hold down the melee button for more than a second. So basically it's meant to replace tea bagging.
I dont know about u guys but after watching this video, "Hang Em High" popped into my head but, I think the reason it came to mind was because I loved the first halo so much that I really missed all the carnage me & some of my friends had & this video brings back good fun memories of those times but taking the fun factor to a whole nother level. I really have a feeling that this definately will be bungies best work. The game looks so fun that I think I seen enough to say this is definately on my list of games I must buy.
Alan wake then this.I thought someone said the 360 couldn't handle killzone 2 or ratchet and clank. I feel lied to.
I've never been particularly interested in the Halo franchise, but this game might just be the one to turn me around. It seems this and Alan Wake might just persuade me to get myself a 360. 2010 is turning out to be a great year to be a gamer!
Air Assasinations look epic
Looks so cool
The assassination killz are awesome.
man i think this vidoc will make the die hard sony trolls cry hard ! the graphics,animation,effects for a mp game that is basically a sandbox aka battlefield that u want drive what ever vehicle u wish etc !! blows most games out of the sky grAPHically and wait its not even SINGLEPLAYER FOOTAGE.....MIND BLOWN omw to buy odst right now
Halo : Reach or Gears 3
and will sell 10mil each.
Reach is even bigger than Halo 3, so i dont think Gear 3 can sell more. I expect Gears to sell around 7-8 mil, and Halo reach sells 12-13 mil
one of the better vids I have seen...must buy day one for me
the little shield around your body that looks like the halo 3 bubble but its an armour for your body is bad ass
Did anyone else notice in the vidoc that one of the guys near the end of the trailer was wearing a Marathon t-shirt with a number 2 next to it, couldnt tell if it was a stand alone 2 or the beginning of a year? Maybe this could be bungies next project?
You're thinking too much.
9 more dayzzzz
Actually it is eleven days.
What could be better? Dang I can't wait.
It all looks so chaotic and fun. The guy at the end makes the most ridiculous comments on these vidocs which are quite funny though.
Luke (Froman) Timmins. He's a bit crazy and obviously has some sort of A.D.D. haha. Hilarious though. He's awesome in the Bungie Podcasts (which has bad language. Don't listen little kiddies).
