TVGB: "Hold on to your Spartan helmets, Halo fans. Bungie came *this* close to making a Master Chief-starring Halo 4."
master chiefs story never ended
to be honest it is halo four its just not to hot master chief its like cod 4 mw and then there was mw2 which was cod 6? i believe
nope i see this as more of metal gear raiden (halo reach) and metal gear solid (halo #) is the main franchise...halo [insert number] has to include master cheif as the main charater, just like metal gear solid [insert number] must involve snake (right? i havent played any of the mgs games, but thats what i hear)
Its the fourth halo game and that is the 6th metal gear simple as
reach is actually technically the 6th halo game, or 5th by bungie
@MrAnon I get what you're saying but it's not the best analogy since Solid Snake wasn't really that involved in two MGS games (one followed Naked Snake, the other was more about Raiden). I think the article does Halo a slight disservice because it in a way says, "This is just a knock-off Halo title and not quite up to the quality you'd expect." And as MGS has shown, the main character doesn't really have to be involved to make a quality title with the franchise name.
you guys have no idea what youre talking about. Bungie are saying they almost made Halo 4 as in 'the sequel to Halo 3', ie. it picks up where Halo 3 left off. Reach is a true Halo game, in the Halo 1/2/3 timeline, but its set SHORTLY BEFORE Halo: Combat Evolved (or Halo 1 in other words). so as you can see its a true halo game, but its NOT a sequel to Halo 3 because its set BEFORE Halo 3. its a PREQUEL to Halo 1.
@IHateYouFanboys thats what im saying...dangert12's argument was that halo reach IS halo 4 and i was proving that halo reach ISNT halo 4 cause it doesnt follow the main story of master chief and where halo 3 ended off...and why i said it was like the metal gear raiden of the halo series, cause metal gear raiden itself is a full game as part of the metal gear franchise, but doesnt follow the main story i know halo reach is a full game, odst wasnt really (but still believe it was more than an expansion) and a halo 4 game would... *SPOILER ALERT* ...follow what happened to master chief after he got awaken from the cryochamber once again, this time by cortana and what planet he was headed towards
Oh. That's disappointing. I would have liked to see the ending of Halo 3 resolved earlier.
Dangert12....reading comprehension saves lives. While it technically is the 4th game in the main series (not ODST or Wars), it's story has nothing to do with the story of Halo 3 and instead is a prequel leading up to Halo: CE I'm actually a fan of not having a Halo 4. I think it gives a good place for 343 to take off with the franchise and start molding it how they want to because any game developer that is forced to make something the way a previous developer did will not make a good game
MS's paychecks are going to bring Halo 4... better believe that!
Um... MS has another studio working on Halo, so your comment doesn't make sense.
Either way having a new Halo will be welcoming. I really thought the multiplayer beta was great. And can't wait to play the new campaign with my friends. As for a Halo 4? I hope Bungie down the road decides to do one and not the other companies nipping at the feet of Microsoft to take over. Halo is Bungie's Baby and it only seems fitting for them to continue on.
i would also prefer bungie to do it, cause of how close they work with their community...but 343 is handling halo as far as i know, and frank o connor (made the story of halo, i think) is part of 343
Lets hope down the road indeed, where when they announce it, its an explosion of a game lol. Like Twisted Metal for PS3, they havent seen it or ANY news for years and years, and thought it would never happen but BOOM it did! Of course we all know it will happen sooner or later, just i hope its down the road so it will be well worth it
A Halo with Master Chief would have sold without a doubt. But I'm sure MS is already working on Halo 4 with Master Chief hopefully to be a launch game for the next Xbox in 2012 the latest. I have a feeling Bungie + MS shot themselves in the foot with ODST last year .... It really turned off a lot of people paying full price for a game that I feel wasn't as great as the other Halo's.
I think Reach will do just fine...and by fine I mean one of the best selling games on the console
I know I'm buying it day one .... But I do got friends that are more casual gamers that don't think they are buying it cause how lamenthey thought ODST was. And then there is my 13yr old kid, who used to be the biggest halo fanatic, and him and his friends just want COD black ops. I guess MS is really gonna have to hype Reach the way they did for Halo 3 to get people back on board.
ODST was actually a very good game though, thats the thing most people seem to disregard. it was a breath of fresh air to the halo series as well, making some very good changes to the tried and perfected gameplay. and etownone, if you think that Microsoft have to try and get people 'back on board' for reach, youre very misguided. Reach will sell gangbusters even if microsoft dont spend a cent on advertising. the 11 million people that bought Halo 3 alone will guarantee it outsells EVERY single PS3 exclusive released to date, which it only needs to sell 5 million to do.
Old news. But would have been cool
