"343 Industries’ second major entry in Microsoft’s Halo franchise won’t be out on the Xbox One until late next year. That leaves more than enough time to speculate about what comes next for the series’s expansive science fiction universe. "
I'm excited to see how the locke/chief storyline plays out. It certainly seems darker as well.
Absolutely, so much potential.
Let all creativity come from within 343 , do not let yourself be inspired by the crap out in retail. Look forward to halo 5 MP beta and the game itself.
Don't think I'll read this article. I've only played Halo 1 on the Xbox, and I can't even remember the story. Always meant to play the rest but never got around to it. So pumped for this collection for the single player aspect alone. Gonna play 1-4 back to back.
You'll not likely want 5 straight after then haha, each to their own but I've got a few Zelda's and a few Mario's built up and uncharted 2 and 3 but I wouldn't just nail off one series unless i was back to them for a bit of nostalgia but unless it's the best of the best and even then talk about overkill it's why I've stopped playing call of duty and why I can't bring myself to start assassins creed black flag let alone buy it my mate even offered me a free copy to borrow just can't be bothered there's so much variety out there that it's good to mix it up play one game come back to it go off play something random come back to it, they were released years apart for a reason, it's not like it's the godfather trilogy story wise ;)
I tend to get through my games quite quickly, ill be nearing 4000 Gamerscore in a couple months, but definitely be finished by witcher3. I never play a game, go to something else and come back. If I stop playing its all over, I didn't like it.
Well it will sure as hell be better than Destiny's vague story, what the hell happened to Bungie? lol
They left Microsoft, which was responsible for every major directional decision in the Halo franchise. Bad decision. Bungie wanted to make Halo an RTS originally. Destiny is the result of what happens when mediocre developers are given too much money and left with creative control.
I can't wait for this game
IF's, but's and probably nots.
There's so much lore in Halo. I haven't even played through them except for co-op in 2, and 4. I can't wait for the MCC, and I really want to read the books/comics.
Planting seeds for Precursor saga! (Reapers) Blue Team vs Arbiter/Locke Didact IS alive and has six Composers If Halo 5 has the flood...It could be one of the biggest halos. When Halo 5 hits I'm preparing myself to be blown away, and all the "Milk Doom & Gloom" articles that will follow. Halo has a RICH wealth of lore behind it... It's one of the few games that could have 10 games all connected and still have more stories to tell. Eventually they'll stop telling Chiefs story but they could easily piggy back on the books. Precursor Saga with Halo meets Mass Effect RPG elements would be killer.
And lets not forget Dr. Halseys "kidnapping" in the spartan-ops saga. Master chief on some unknown world (first halo 5 trailer) against some new unknown enemy.And where IS cortana? so many questions!! So many story mechanics at play.. I like where they are going with all this. Its going to be EPIC!
The classic collection sure I'm not a massive halo fan but even I can see the value for money in that collection as they are highly regarded by most and bungie did make some great shooters over the years but this number 5 is not by bungie and will not have the same creative spark just like batman origins and even more so with gears of war epic had the sense to see it had run its course after 3 games and sold it to microsoft now microsoft have 2 massive franchises on their hands with no original Devs on board im sure they won't be awful gsmes but there is no way they will be getting shouted about once they've been and gone, epic were smart in selling gears and going off to do something new. What does it matter tho the games will sell millions on name alone, same with call of duty no matter which of the 3 developers they now have making it each year.
Rose the reason why i disagreed is because alot of Bungie staff is in 343 not to mention other phenomenal developers they pulled from all over the place. I believe they even have leads from Mgs4 and other prominent games also.
Eh, I've been impressed with all the Halo stories so far. I'm more concerned about multiplayer. They need to go look back at what made Halo 2/Halo 3 online better than Reach and Halo 4.
"They need to go look back at what made Halo 2/Halo 3 online better than Reach and Halo 4." I beleive that creating the MCC collection, working closely with hardcore halo players in the community and MLG pros, will have been a very educational experience for them. Halo 5 beta, in december going into january..so far ahead of release. They are clearly confident in what they have been working on. I cant wait to play that beta! until then, we have the MCC and all the gaming goodness that collection will bring. Im going to do a marathon weekend session where I run through it with my bro and two friends.All online. I want my screen to myself!and a tonne of snacks.. Its going to be great!
Keep out everything that involves stuff like the flood or shit. That basically ruined halo 3.
Story wise the flood is ok, but running backwards while bumping into stuff and trying to keep melee enemies away from you is just bs.
