i doubt it considering they have pretty much shown so much of the game
they even had a beta of the game already

not much left to be blown away by if you ask me

then again there is that phrase again
"blow peoples minds"
i kid you not everyone says this sooo much this generation that phrase has lost all meaning to me

I mean the Beta totally BLEW ME AWAY.. I have never seen such good graphics on a console (and I own both 360 and ps3)

What's your PSN, we could play IN IMAGINARY LAND.

Blaze9292622d ago

honestly, ever since the beta ended I actually forgot all about this game.

Dude4202622d ago

I don't know what you're trying to get at here, I forgot about other games after playing their betas (like BFBC2, COD4 etc...) and that's probably because we have other games to look forward too.

Boody-Bandit2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

and you never responded.
You are just a person that trolls the net seeking attention. You live on this site and possibly others like it with dozens of accounts. There is no way you have enough time left in the day to game for as much as you troll.

Prove me wrong What's your GT information? I honestly wont publically post it if you provide it but I will come on here and say GROL actually isn't full of sh!t and admit I was wrong.

On Topic:
This article was probably taken out of context because Bungie doesn't strike me as one of the usual boasting developers in gaming today. I don't think they are pounding their chest over Reach. If anything they are probably more excited about their next venture and stepping away from Halo.

The Reach beta felt more like Halo Combat Evolved than Halo 3, which is a good thing, but there was nothing mind blowing about it. It plays well but it is a mild upgrade in graphics to 3 with classes to choose from, nothing more.

I think games that might blow peoples minds is Rage, Killzone 3, Castlevannia, Agent (if it's shown), maybe some new Last Guardian footage, GT5, etc, but it wont be Halo Reach. Halo Reach is a monster title when it comes to popularity and sales but it's blowing people minds days ended last generation.

Gears of War 3 stands a much better chance of impressing 360 fans than Reach does.

Nac2622d ago

I love me some Halo, and liked the Reach beat alot, but best graphics on a console? No sir. Best Halo graphics perhaps. In reagrds to best looking console game it looks like Crysis 2 may take that crown.

rezzah2622d ago

LOL, who are you trying to convince?

bakasora2622d ago

It might blow the kids mind, older us have seen it all.
And the halo armor look like some kind of plastic armor, maybe because its too colorful.

OK let me put out these disclaimers,
1. I don't own an Xbox
2. I love my PS3 and I am almost level 13 in trophies as proof.
3. I think that GreenRing is a troll and deserves some grief from the community for his obvious trolling.

OK, now with that out of the way, what on Earth are you talking about? I mean if reading a comment on these forums makes your dick go limp, then I can only assume that normally you have a hard on while your reading these forums, and that is quite disturbing to me. Did you even think about what you typed in before you hit the add reply button?

anticooper2622d ago

you are always full of fanboy bs!

ShadowCK2622d ago

ITT: PS3 Fanboys butthurt because they know they will never play this masterpiece.

Halo Reach has stunning graphics. To argue that is plain ignorant.

Nac2616d ago

Looks like Rage is going to be the best looking console game.

I was disappointed by the beta honestly. too much of a lack of balance and it reminded me too much of mw2.

SixZeroFour2622d ago

lack of balance? so what was your winning combo then?

halojunkie2622d ago

im so sad i just want to cry...

peowpeow2622d ago

Besides bugs, isn't that why they release a beta in the first place? =/

aviator1892622d ago

that's why they call it a BETA...
If you've heard any of their podcasts or read any of their post-beta weekly updates, you'll know that they've already fixed and balanced numerous problems from the beta. It's a beta, so of course they're going to be some balancing issues pretty much in a grand scale.

SixZeroFour2622d ago

i wanna see campaign in action, and ill be a happy man

and you are right about the term "blow ppls minds", its just like the term "epic" and the like, ppl over used the term that it isnt what it originally meant...just like the rating system 10/10 mean what 8-9/10 used to mean...and now ppl are constantly using it that they will have to start resorting to 10+/10 soon (see hiphopgamer for example) which is total ridiculous because there should never be something over 10/10

Inside_out2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

Well I'm looking forward to it...lol...Halo is always amazing but I think Reach will be the best Halo EVER...Nobody needs to be offended...The trailer is around the corner and the game will be released in 14 wks...Can't wait...

Munky2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

They have shown nothing from the campaign, and the beta only had a fraction of the content the full game will have. So if anything they have shown very little of what the final game will be like.

SixZeroFour2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

actually its a good thing he thinks they showed so much of the game, when in fact it was really a small portion...makes you realize how big the game will be...anyone who follows bungie weekly updates know what im talking about :)

EDIT typo

Eamon2622d ago

lol the "Blow you away" or "Blow people's minds" has been overused so much to the point that even HHG uses it to hype shit up.

Arnon2622d ago

I guess you didn't read the article stating that after the beta, the game had basically a complete overhaul in gameplay mechanics and graphics.

Cold 20002622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

The single player blowout is def going to blow us away. Just wait and see.

ActionBastard2622d ago

Your true Halo fan with probably be blown away. Your typical 360 fanboy loves anything "exclusive" and will claim to be blown away, even when they are not. PS3 fanboys will hate on it or compare it to KZ3 with absolutely no reason to do so. PS3 and 360 owners (like myself) will probably rent it as Sony has all my money on lock this year, as last.

And yes, "blown away" has lost all meaning this gen. As has the 10/10 review score.

Kroganwrex2622d ago

Yeeah. Not true at all mate. I own both consoles too and Sony certainly hasnt got a grasp on my money...

In fact there are more games on the 360 I have bought this year so far including multiplats. The ps3 is awesome, but there is so much choice on the xbox now too, no 1 console can have a "lock" on my money.

ActionBastard2622d ago

Bygones? I haven't bought a single 360 game this year and the last one I played to completion was Splinter Cell. Just play my PS3 more.

candystop2622d ago

Why on Gods green earth you would play your PS3 more beats the hell out of me but then again you obviously have different tastes which is fine.

Munky2622d ago

If you didn't buy Mass Effect 2, then I really hope you rented the game.

palaeomerus2622d ago (Edited 2622d ago )

Yeah I've been spending most of my money on multiplat games too this year (like last year and the year before that). So far, Darksiders, Bayonetta, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, Dragon Age:Awakening, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Borderlands Add On Pack, Super Mario Galaxy 2 all made the cut.

Upcoming probable purchases for this year include: Transformers: War for Cybertron, Crackdown 2, Halo:Reach, and Fallout: New Vegas,

Look at all the trolls in here. I think we are gonna need a bigger bridge.

menoyou2622d ago

Didn't Geoff Keighley say Halo:Reach trailer would blow us away last year and everyone kinda just yawned? Sounds like more Microsoft hype. They pretend Halo is awesome because of the sales when in fact they simply spend more than the game development itself to advertise it. Massive fail.
