Halo: Reach will be formally unveiled to the world on Satuday during the VGA ceremony. Bungie will debut in-game footage of the hot title and share some information with everyone on this major Xbox 360 exclusive.
Buck was cool i guess
Romeo was cool i guess
i dont understand how these developers claims 1 thing, then you get the same shi7 in a different package, and call it new...im willing to bet no serious changes will be made in reach, but they will tell you so just to make it another reason for consumers to buy it...good game or not, i assure you theres gonna be nothing new about reach other then another tacked on expansion of the halo universe, with a side mission made into a main story...but just like ODST, they figure anything with halo can sell at full price so reach will be the same...why the hell would they work hard for something that sells without any reason or logic on consumers part...that kind of state of mind will keep giving you half decent titles at full price over and over again
I don't think Buck and the rest of the ODST gang were alive when the Battle of Reach occurred. They are talkin' bout other ODST's maybe?
@ SasanovaS1987 So what is it that you want a Halo game with Kratos in it, perhaps Solid Snake. its obvious the game will have similarities with the other, because its set in the same universe. You people just like to [email protected] about everything.
@SasanovaS1987 - so your wondering why they are bringing in the same characters when its in a specific universe (halo universe)? thats like saying why do they keep using kratos in a GoW game, always spitting out the same thing @kigmal - actually, before odst came out, there was this little live action teaser thingy online where you could see an interviewing of the 3 of the odst characters (real unknown actors) and bios of the characters...buck and romeo (i think it was romeo) were in fact survivors of the battle of reach edit: this was the "thingy" i was talking about, but i guess i got the "being survivors of the battle of reach" from somewhere else...ill try to remember http://cdn.haloodst.xbox.co... edit 2: i guess it was just buck that was at the battle of reach...straight from b.net http://www.bungie.net/News/...
man why do Metal Gear games all Feature characters from the universe and Snake?
I have a friend that's going to lend it to me on our break between semesters. I'm looking forward to giving this a play through.
Or is the disagree because I want to play it? Do I really not want to play it and I'm just fooling myself? Really, if you disagree, how about an explanation as to why every now and then. I'm a little confused by the disagree my last statement got me. I'm probably not the first person to notice this but people really don't hesitate to jam the disagree button, and probably the bubble down button, without the slightest provocation, do they?
You know the fall of Reach only happened like two to three months before Halo 3, right?
Great! A reunion of the most generic video game characters ever created. Bots will surely love this. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That show till this day looks better than any Halo game ...and Reach!
>Generic Characters >Nathan Drake = Indiana Jones >Killzone / Resistance = Every Call of Duty character ever Oh what? That's all the exclusive main characters anyone cares about? LOL
Lol Nathan drake has more personality than every video game character combined. The 360 only has two franchises and both main characters are space marines.... boooooooring.
master chief can never live up to his father
lol the 360 exclusives don't have any character that have more personality than Nate.
Shepherd, all the L4D1 and 2 characters, and Master Chief would all like to respectfully decline. They all have more interesting stories and personalities than Nathan Drake.
It is not really a shock to hear there would be ODSTs in Halo Reach. Because if you read the book Fall of Reach ODSTs were talked about in the book. So to me ODSTs are cool and think it is great that ODSTs will be in Halo Reach.
I need to get those damn books. I just never have time to read books ... too much gaming :P
If it has a better game engine and does not look like every other Halo that came before it. All this talk about the Xengine is making me wonder how it is going to look when it comes out. I am also not going to go by some video that they claim is in-game because they did that with Forza 3 and it does not look the same. I played every Halo game and enjoyed the story so far but ODST in my opinion was not worth 60 dollars because for one, I already had all the maps for Halo 3 and two new ones did not work for me and two, The campaign was too short for the price. The story was good but that game was a 30 dollar game easy.
I think ODST was an awesome game, but like you, I also think it should have cost $30.
im getting confused now...are they using the xengine or not? what "I" thought was that xengine was built by microsoft to fully utilize xbox 360's power, but that bungie had their own newly built engine (different from xengine) for halo reach...again im not saying my stuff is fact, just that this is what I always thought does someone know what they actual deal is with the new engine?
The X-engine isnt actually a game engine (like the unreal engine) which you would use to create a game. Its an Xbox 360 development kit which has extra memory for testing, so its a piece of hardware not software. The idea is that the x-engines extra testing memory will allow the game developers to tweak code to make a better game, but the actual game code is still completely dependant on the skill of the developer. So to summarise X-engine is a tool to make better games, not an instant fix for a better game.
Yeah the new sdk for 360 has 1 gig of ram. The first sdk only had 512mb of ram so devs need to run the game code plus the debug code on 512mb of ram so the lost like 20~100mb of ram just for testing there games. With the new sdk they can run the debug code and the game code on the box without sacrificing 20~100mb of ram microsoft should have done it at the start putting out those 1 gig sdk.
That's probably something that should be done with any sdk, for 360 or otherwise. Interesting info though, cheers for that. That also goes for Nicaragua.
Sorry, but its a FPS. What can you actually change in it that makes it a full on game changer while still being a FPS?
destructable environments better ai cover system new wepons for once next gen graphics for once New gameplay for once an actual good sp for once wich they failed at this gen. lareger 32 player games online like every ps3 shooter has. less powerangers. less mini alien chatter. they annoying like tellitubies Physics

Should turn out to be a Spartan. That would be badass.
Spartans are selected as children and anyhow, Reach is set before ODST.
The Rookie could've been a Spartan who was thought dead but escaped Reach, later joining the ODST secretly, thus making him such a silent badass in ODST.
As soon as The NDA is off my head I am going to blow the internet away, with over 16 months worth of information, email from other devs, Big web sight's, behind closed doors stuff. and what is to come, I have decide that it is all most time to lift the Vail off as my NDA comes close to expire. MS will not be issuing anther Gage order., And I will not be the only dev to come forward, There will be Meany. The x-engine is the biggest step towards the next generation development environment, and the engine will scale to all hardware changes in the for see able future, It is software code of a general purpose nature, but based on GPGPU A/b branching it has not been done on a console in this time period or cycle, but next generation pc graphics card will be heavily based on GPGPU engines, over time, By using this software with the new 1 gig sdk it has proven to other major engine designing company's "epic" "Capcom" "ubisoft" "EA" "Squire" "Tecmo" "Naughty dog" "Insomniac" just to name a few, That the X-engine is the future design, While some of these company's are porting or incorporating the Logic in to there engines to gain more performance then previous thought possible from aging hard ware, This will be the first time ever in the history that a console development evolves within its life cycle from stand ed Cpu c++ GPU .net vs, To full GPGPU stream in .net DirectCompute, And the biggest step forward right now is the fact that Project Phoenix is the code name that inside sources are code naming the evolution of the XBOX360 Xenos GPU, to a full GPGPU stream. to Xbox720 pulse in years to come, and this is why we wont see 720 for awhile, Developers and big studios can not afford to invest millions into development cost of clusters of GPGPU. "Intel" put there GPGPU card project on hold for this very reason. When one GPGPU can out perform a cell based cpu in every margin you can understand why every company involved is investing time into this now. But a GPGPU is nothing with out the ENGINE to support it? These are facts. And yes some Sony and Ms first party teams are sharing information but only to save this industry A lot of time resources and money? "Put your Fanboy Stuff a side for a few seconds"
That is without a doubt the most rambling, nonsensical, meaningless jibberish that i have ever read on this website. The X-engine is a tool for devloping games, the point dosnt need explaining any further than that. Lets not try and overcomplicate the discussion with bizzarre futuristic prophecy mixed with fanboy rantings, its just making you sound like a bit of a tool.
In 4 days from now will see, just remember I was one of the developers who worked close with first party studio and Ms to design these tools and this engine, it took 3 years of hard work from a team of well over 300 people, So I will quote you on your comment, cos you Nicaragua are going to look pretty stupid in 4 day when the fruit of our labor hit the net? If you think for one second that what I have said in my other post is not true, I Can prove it to you in 5 second flat and I will? today
It would be nice if you proved it, Today.
There's so much speculation on the xengine but long before i heard about i heard about a new way that ms was working on to make better use of the cpu something about bouncing processes and what not between them which would increase performance drastically in the future this was a few years ago i dont know anything about all this tech stuff but this might be associated with xengine.
But in all likeliness the x-engine is fake, and that's coming from a developer I know.
so is reach a prequal or what?
I actually like how they told the story in odst they just needed more on the gameplay side of things. It was a good game imo and I hope they build on how they tell stories in game
Love how mods can't even take a joke nowadays.
JS: "I can’t comment on any future plans for our ODSTs. But it would be a shame if we made a game about the planet Reach -- a place where Buck, the ODST’s squad leader, was known to be -- and not have him appear in some way shape or form…" Where in that statement does it imply that Reach will feature ODST characters? It insinuates that Buck will be seen in the game but not that it'll necessarily feature ODST's. Still can't wait for the reveal. I hope it lives up to what people are expecting of it.
