Is More Halo A Bad Thing? OXCGN Confronts This Hallowed Topic

OXCGN:

"Halo is a franchise synonymous with gaming, and the Xbox brand in particular.

"When you think of revolutionary First Person Shooters, you more than likely think of Halo.

"When you think of sci-fi gaming, you think of course of Halo.

"When you think of innovative console multiplayer gaming, you think naturally of Halo.

"The franchise becomes a decade old this year, having concluded a dramatic trilogy, including the underrated Halo Wars strategy title, an excellent Halo 3: ODST and of course the final touch which came in the form of Halo: Reach… but the final nail is not even within eyesight of the coffin."

Some interesting points are raised, such as the fact that Halo 4 is looking to redefine an industry like how the original did.

It would have to be something flat-out ridiculously impressive in order to achieve such an effect in the modern game industry.

No its not...Im a huge ps3 gamer but halo is one of the very few reasons why i play my 360.

At this point, all we can do is wait. But I read a theory on Youtube whilst listening to Halo Wars OSTs that absolutely BLEW my mind. If 343 really is heading in that direction then we're in for a treat storywise.

what was the theory?

Proeliator2375d ago (Edited 2375d ago )

Chief is actually a robot. BAH DUM TISH!

But in reality, hearing the theory would be great.

Convas2374d ago

At the end of Halo Wars, there is a secret message from Serina, the AI, says "Captain, wake up, something has happened". If you'll remember, everybody on the Spirit of Fire went into cryo, because of being with out a jump engine, which they sacrificed to blow up the Forerunner fleet.

In the trailer for Halo 4, Cortana says, "Chief, wake up, I need you!".

The theory is, they are both being pulled into the same planet, and Halo 4 will see Master Chief and Red Team duking it out against the new threat.

And since it's rumored that they are using canon from Halo: Cryptum, it's likely that Dr. Halsey and the Spartan IIs and IIIs in the Dyson Sphere could tie into the new trilogy from Ghosts of Onyx.

Anyways, the real kicker is the fact that 343 could be looking to tie together Halo Wars and Halo 4. Hopefully, the badassness of the Spartans of Red Team remain if they show up in reality.

M$ is just plain lazy and cheap. There should be a lego/mega blocks Halo universe as the Halo toys are popular and fantastic looking. Get them young, get them forever.

Where is the Halo movie??? Peter Jackson had everything ready to go and nothing. Instead he used the tech from the Halo movie for ( even in AFREAKA!!! ) District 9 and has never been heard from again. I say hire Zach Snyder and all will be forgiven.

Where is the TPS version of Halo. That style of gaming would work great. remember when everyone thought Halo ODST was going to be Halo recon as they even hired a guy from that famous series...squad based tactics in the halo universe...me like...Make it happen.

Nobel team 7...Rainbow Six style. Yes...bring it. Infiltrate the enemy strong hold using the latest swat team tactics and weapons.

Where is my Grunt spin off...PLEASE!!!...Make a grunt spin off in the same way they have Lego Star wars...those games have sold well and offer a great opportunity for the disrespected Grunt nation...move on it.

Halo wars RTS??? What happened. It sold in the millions then they close the dev and nothing??? Lets go...make another one and make it FAST.

Forgot to mention RPG a la Oblivion or Fallout. The Halo universe has room for them all.

@Nasty...Dead series like a heart attack. The haters need not like it. Sony is the biggest franchise milking pub out there with their handhelds, phones and console games. As soon as someone mentions Halo it's, please no.

There are a lot of great devs out there that need work. Bizarre creations could of made a Halo inspired racer using all the vehicles from the game and universe...Why not??? I would bet they would all sell GREAT as long as different devs were allowed some freedom to make the games.

I don't know...I'm kind of over Halo now...

gaminoz2375d ago (Edited 2375d ago )

Yeah me too. But if the new game is fresh and not just to exploit the franchise, I may be interested.

I'm not interested at all in the HD remake.

Belgavion2375d ago

I'll be satiated after the anniversary release
