Austin breaks down the Halo 5 trailer and gives us a look into what we might be seeing in the next Halo by analyzing the trailer from Microsoft's E3 Press Conference.
It was a brilliantly unexpected reveal; at first I was like "Is this Destiny???", Master Chief has a little emotional moment then the airwave pulls the cloak away and reveals the iconic helmet.
I don't think it was unexpected, for me, it was kinda expected, but I was doubting about it because it was going to be very soon to announce another Halo, Halo 4 came out in 2012 7 months ago.
i was like...is this an xbox version of journey and then when you see the familiar forearm and then finally the helmet i was then like....Master chief is on a journey of new discovery. see what i did there? okay that was lame.
That's not what he meant i don't think. We all knew a new halo was likely gonna be announced, but the way the trailer was made was unexpected. I thought it was some rpg game, but then i noticed his arm, and then boom his helmet, and i was like "holy shit". I loved it because it was very different approach for a halo trailer. People complaining about the poncho are idiots because it wasn't an actual game trailer. It was just a teaser to get us hyped for next E3.
Virtual well its not coming out most likely for another 16-18 months.
It reminded me of Halo 3's reveal trailer... a little too much. All CG, super short, no mention of gameplay or features, just a clip that screams "we didn't have enough ready to show you, so here's a 30 second clip we paid some CG animation company to make while we finish the game.". The difference being, however, when halo 3's teaser was shown it was the big climax of the show. MS didn't repeat that mistake this time around, it was just snuck in near the end real quick, then followed by plenty of actual gameplay of an awesome looking title.
Actually I was clueless 'till the arm was shown, but then I went WTF... What's with the cloak over a helmet? The poor guy must be claustrophic in all that sh**! How much protection does your identity really needs anyway? LOL! I guess I just wanted 'em to take the mask off for once.
I'm more interested in what he was doing with a cloak when he was wearing full armor. Doesn't make sense?
he didnt want to get sand scratches on his armor?
Must have a cooling system inside the armor to be in the middle of a desert. Lol.
What was with that rag that he was wearing for anyway? He has a space suit doesn't he?
A generic spaceman in a poncho which wasn't needed because he was covered in armour. But some people like Halo so hope you enjoy.
jUST LIKE SOME PEOPLE LIKE dRAKE NOW WITH ZOMBIES WITH ZOMBIES LAST OF US LOL
I'm sorry, what?
Sooooo TRUE!!! lol Drake with zombies. Im glad im not a blind fanboy.
^^Even though you do sound like one.
I think (or hope?) Blue was being sarcastic... Otherwise... Just wow bro.
Some people love cgi instead of actual gamplay
In terms of character development I would say Master Chief isn't generic anymore, 343 have shown a more human side of him who actually speaks; not just a silent one liner badass.
Its a disguise, he probably has armour on to conceal his identity= from a distance he would just look like a regular joe in the desert.
And, in that case, wouldn't be simplier to get rid of the armor/change it? I mean, no one knows what Chief looks like beyond the green armor with golden visor anyway... So... Yeah, kinda lame as far as concealing goes. If anything, the guy on the desert under a ridiculous heavy, long and hot cloak brings in even more attention.
No, why would a soldier who is always prepared for an unexpected fight get rid of his armour? Change it? He's Master Chief not a fashion model, silly comment really, especially when we have no idea whats going on, its a short teaser trailer, but common sense says he just wants to go un-noticed long enough to move in for the kill or as the trailer shows be ready for anything. A cloak like that does not bring attention from a distance especially he just looks like any other peasant on a journey through the desert, whats so special about those rags, many local people who dare to live or go walking through a desert for a long period of time wear such clothing.
yes a regular joe on a random planet in the middle of nowhere but this story probably has Chief essentially quitting the UNSC or going Awol hoping to find cortana (im gussing she may have either copied herself or made a backup, you saw her make copies of herself in Halo 4) it would be really cool if Master Chief went ahead and made his own PMC made up of Covenant, humans and maybe some protheans.
And this shows how much you know about surviving in the desert... Cover from the sun is not the same as using a bunch of rags like that. But this I'll give you, in such a short tease I have no idea what's really going on there, so yes, he maybe wanted exactly that, to attract some attention without making obvious it was him. So my bad here. Still, the cloak over a mask, which is over an completelly unknown face was kinda overkill, got me to LOL for a while.
Killzone 3 ain't it? lol
It does not look much better than killzone shadowfall, and its not coming for another year, so by then 343 should get the hang of the hardware and we should be seeing this.
Thank you Captain Obvious. Its not like they said it was gameplay. It was just a reveal.
I'm sorry Master Chief... you have entertained me for a long time, but it is time for us to part ways. And why the hell are you wearing a poncho? You have gravity defying, space breathing, bullet ricocheting armour on...
yes but it can still get dirty!
Element of surprise?
Very dissappointed they didn'tshow some in game footage..but they announced 69fps and cloud support.
Still in development with many game play features not finalized, a teaser will do... for now.
Im very very excited about the 60fps and cloud support this Halo 5 is going to kick ass.
Sony fans going to hate. lol
Why's he wearing a poncho if he's wearing a (NOTE:DUST PROTECTED) suit of armor underneath anyway?
Well he probably has armour on to conceal his identity= from a distance he would appear to be a average joe in the desert. Its a disguise.
Yup, because when I see a 7'2" man walking around in the desert in a poncho, he doesn't attract my attention at all. After all, there's so many other things in this sea of sand to grab my attention... /s
Also at the end of the Halo trailer when the Logo appears, did anyone notice the "5" that appears behind it in the clouds?
I don't like Halo anymore as much as I did back in the day. It's turning into COD
Bitch please, it's beyond COD.
Depends on how you look at it, Halo has the upper hand in non-gaming media and merchandising milk but is not even close in the "milking the same game" category, as a not-new COD releases every year. I belive that (not so wrong) impression comes from excessive marketing, maybe they could benefit from tuning it down a litte, it's oviously past the point of aversion to a lot of people. On a side note, although I agree Halo had been better before (specially the first one), Halo 4 is actually a surprisingly good game... At least I didn't expected 343 to make a good job but turned out they went beyond Bungie's last efforts in my opinion (definetelly much better than any other Halo on 360, maybe even with Halo 2).
What was that giant robot? I thoguht it was going to be a Jrpg
This trailer was badass for all Fist of the North Star fans out there you know why i mean that. http://youtu.be/eDewrAQ3T_E
