TMC: Here's a full list of Halo Reach info taken from the latest Gameinformer.
So. After that. There really is no point in buying the magazine...
Is there ever these days?
A lot of the time, yes. Gaming magazines have a lot of good interviews and articles in them, and all the interviews can't be found online.
Agree with Gameon information for magazine always leak on the internet so there really is no point in buying them. Anyways sound good seems like its gonna be team based.
Only the big stuff is leaked but if you love the gaming industry and game design, you would buy a gaming magazine
This sounds good: "Fully stealthy gameplay is now possible." It's so annoying having to kill everything because they automatically see you when you go into the perimeter. I used to get a little bit of frameskipping during the battle sequences in Halo 3, so hopefully they've optimized the game further, seen as they said it can handle double the amount of AI.
doesn't follow the book = let down. the book was absolutely fantastic.
I saw the scans, this game looks great! I can't wait to play it.
I'd buy it for some of the images and such, especially those alluded to in the post. They were also the first to have the information (I doubt it was cheap) so I'd support them by buying a copy.
Sounds fantastic. I like how you can drive civilian vehicles. 2010 is going to be expensive.
"Bungie have once again made the Covenant more dangerous and frightening, as they were in Halo 1." Halo 1 with the modes of Halo 3 (obviously firefight mode as well), and some new ones = the best Halo game that will finally deserve the hype the game gets. Halo 1 is by far the best of the games when it comes to single player, so adding a great online to it can only make it better. Halo Reach is the first Halo game I've ever wanted to buy on day 1.
I can't f'ing wait. They should not release Natal and Halo at the same time. That is crazy! They are going to run out of stock for the Holiday, mark my words. Retailer can not just stock 360 stuff. Gamestop for sure is to small to supply a large mob of people. Halo by itself causes kaios. Halo for the hardcore and Natal for the casuals. If the are going to do the price drop like the analyst predict, they should at lease do that early in the year.
I'm still worried about just HOW much different it's going to be. Granted, they're promising a lot of things, but promises don't get you jack. Just ask Peter Molyneux. My main concern is the team aspect of it. There are parts of the previous Halos where you are running around with squad members, but they are largely useless. Is this going to be like that, or is there actually going to be real teamwork involved, like GRAW, RB6, BIA, etc? If it turns out to be the former, and it's just another bigger, prettier Halo... then I'll pass.
I hope they can rectify the lackluster Halo 2/3, and bring back an epic game like the original Halo. From the info given it sounds like they could accomplish it... but only time will tell.
" Larger scale combat will be in Reach. Where only 20 AI at a time could be on screen in Halo 3, now over 40 AI and 20 vehicles can be present at a time." Wow...
http://www.youtube.com/watc... battles happening in the background,but you can't interact with them.hated that about genji 2.but killzone2 and resistance showed it can be done. but sounds good.bunjie is impressing me so far.
"battles happening in the background,but you can't interact with them." What made you say that? What you said has nothing to do with the quote. The info states Bubgie and pals up-ed the action allowing twice as many smart AI's fighting your squad versus what we seen in Halo 3 with chief. Instead of the 3 or 4 vehicles we seen in Halo 3 at any given time, in Halo Reach there could be 20 air or ground vehicles at a time in Reach. I'm not sure why you mentioned or are trying to imply stage prop background visual effects. That's some pretty pro PS3 and not so stealthy damage control. Shady.
Actually, you could battle those people in the backdrops of Genji. Granted not all of them, but after you beat a set you'd go further into the back drop and take on more. The enemies in the backdrop were all real time and it showed as they jumped into action as you went along. That isn't a very convincing argument, man. And Genji 2 was and still is one of the best looking next gen games released. It's stunning to look at. The colors and texture work are really impressive. Resistance 1 and 2 both had well over 50 enemies on screen. Mag has 256 at once, online no less. Killzone had upwards of 30 at times. This is nothing new. Ps3 has proven it's been able to pull this off for sometime. Xbox 360 playing catch up?
i could have been full on negative.but i wasn't.bungie is making a not so cutesy M for mature game and it looks better than expected. microsoft and their devs like to say one thing,but it's really misleading. real A.I dogs and boys,4x the polygons,new paradigm in gaming,etc.then reality hits and you see the truth. but i complimented their push to realize a better halo.M for mature should mean what it says and not giggle sounding midget aliens.
I'm playing through Resistance 1 at the moment and there is no way that game has upwards of 50 enemies on screen. Can't speak for it's sequel or KZ2 as I haven't got round to those yet.
Well he has a point, because thats what EPIC did with gears and the "100's" on screen. Fool me once right? Wake me up when a 360 dev delivers on technical ability statements.
@ Iron, then you're not playing the London levels of the game and certainly not at the reactor level yet. They have 30 and 40 enemies on screen at all times almost. Hell, did you get into the Cathedral? You don't call those enemies? Please, you're not playing the game. There were 100 + huggers in that level all at once and all atacking you.
Gears of War 2 or more specifically the second level (where you're on the trucks) had shown a lot going on, the last levels had hordes of locust especially when you get to ride the Brumack. You could tell there were a lot because your "kill count" for the Seriously 2.0 achievement would be going up when you were walking around, shooting randomly, etc and it would only appear when you reached certain milestones. It also depends on what kind of textures are being displayed, are they 100 flood textures which don't have as much detail? Or 100 high quality marine textures? Also depends on how much is going on in the background. Call of Duty 3 on most platforms was nearing the 30-40 unit count during some battles.
look at heavenly sword man, hundreds of enemies! and M.A.G lol
360 was doing hundreds of fightable on screen with launch games like Kameo and Nintynine knights, and those games looked good too, just stop already, why are you people even here, are there not enough God of War articles for you to read ?
i doubt this.. its lok like halo odst. proof: http://sarcasticgamer.com/w...
I dont understand why the 360 cant handle big online games though...its weird. Whatever though, leave the BIG DOG multiplayer matches and single player campaigns for the PS3's processing power. Funny thing is, they're really trying to show what the 360 is capable of, but they still cant touch the PS3's power. 360's been around a year and a half longer and its trying to catch up with PS3.
How adorable, trying to make fun of Halo when you have nothing nearly as good.
your proof is a blurry cellphone pic from the pre-alpha footage.
Poor droids in denial
Major denial...Halo Reach looks awesome...and they know it.
http://www.e-imagesite.com/... yak...more like oDST 1.1
And LIVE is GREAT....LMAO....I think its great to FACEBOOK , TWIITER AND CHAT WITH LITTLE KIDS Look Bots , all our exclusive can sell 500 k and will still be happy knowing SONY brings out freash Ips and a Variety of games for us all to pick from and ENJOY . Be happy and celebrate your 6 million copies sold of HALO . While we get to enjoy 10 other exclusive to 1 ......
Good details from the campaign.But I want to know if the multiplayer will have more than 32 players. An aerial CTF mode with Hornets and Banshees would rock
Right now it 16 players but it could change.
Not necessarily just 16. All they said was that it would have at least everything Halo 3 had and then they listed some of those things. So it will have at least 16 players. It could be more than 16, we don't know.
We Need High Quality Scans NOW!!! I can't believe i'm still watching those blocky pics taken with a 2mpixels camera!! Internet we have work to do!!
High quality scans/pics will have the same impact as the first Cell phone SD Halo Reach trailer vs the HD trailer from Bungie. Watch, those scans will be nothing compared to the real quality, hell you can tell this from the low quality Mag scans.
Reach will rock.
"Health Bar is back along with energy shield." Spartan III's don't have energy shields. They threw away more than the halo reach novel.
the big guy is a Spartan II
I'd take gameplay over story any day. Especially reading after reading this, it feels like its going to be awesome.
Look closer, they are not wearing SPI armor either, so it's possible that the Spartans we play as have energy shields. One thing is clear is that these SIII's are not at all like the ones written about in the Ghosts of Onyx.
Halo Reach is without doubt the Biggest Game coming out on xbox360 it overshadows every game on ps3 in Multi-Player, Game-play, Graphics, Story I've even gone as far as canceling my order for ps3 after witnessing such awesome beautiful scans.
Sure it is maybe in your flop bot head
why did santa not bring you for christmas
They sertianly look like real grabs from an early build of the game. Place holder environments with detailed guns and characters. "Hud is yellow rather than blue." http://haloreachcentral.web... Shields & health bar. Same art... http://haloreachcentral.web... http://www.e-imagesite.com/... The Mag scan doesn't do the old leaked offscreen screen-grab justice. I suspect the leaked offscreen screen grab of a old build, doesn't/won't do justice to the game now or even more so, 8 months down the road.
but you can really see how old the build is. -The motion tracker is now an ellipse, as if to show perspective. http://www.e-imagesite.com/... (top picture) vs this http://haloreachcentral.web...
Fully stealthy gameplay is now possible. - Assassinations are possible with a knife by holding down the melee button. - Sprinting is now possible through an equipment like mechanic.
the sniper dude looks bada5s
Co-op should be Amazing!
Wow. So they have revamped the game mechanics. So it is more like Halo 1 but with new elements. This is great news. As much as i liked Halo 3, Halo was always my favorite in the franchise with Halo 3 my 2nd choice. Halo Reach looks to do exactly what a lot of fans and customers were asking. Revitalize the game and expand on it, don't make it the same game as Halo 1, 2 and 3. And they did it. Thanks Bungie. Looking forward to this game even more now.
I guess its about time to pre order this...lol
Patience is key. You don't want to pre-order from Best Buy only to realize that Gamestop will have some insane pre-order deal.
I'm really looking forward to this game a day one must...Hell I'll be there for da midnight release!
I might just have to buy a 360 for this. Wait... then I would have to pay for live /sadface Maybe I'll stay with ps3 and bum at my friends.
You guys are such bums...Xbox Live is way worth the 3 or 4 bucks a month I pay for it.
wheres Bungie?? his missing his favorite article
Halo reach coming....ONLY... O N L Y ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY XBOX 360 XBOX 360 XBOX 360 XBOX 360 N N L Y Y O N L ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY XBOX 360 XBOX 360 XBOX 360 XBOX 360 CRY MOAR DROIDS KID
You can have you crap while i wait for GOW 3 and GT5 on the ps3 it only does everything
GOW 3 i will have beat in a weeks time and for gt5 i dont give a crap about racing games. Halo on the other hand i will play for a long time. As for the ps3 doing everything i will have to laugh about that. I think of it as a bluray player with a game addon. I enjoy it every once in a while. Gow3 is really the only reason i can think of for owning a ps3 anyway.
God of War < Bayonetta GT5 < Forza 3 We have better games.
it only does everything...except not as good as Halo. :'(
PS3...it only does mediocre games...with a few gems (uncharted 2) thrown in.
... http://www.e-imagesite.com/... halo 1.2,3 odst all came to x360 no one bought them except bots halo reach lookslike total garbage
Oh dear...whatever shall a gamer do. I guess they can play this on the PC then. Wow, amazing. You're both dumbass fanboys.
You can't play Halo Reach on the PC. You can't play Halo 3 or ODST on the PC either.
Nobody cares about what you think. Millions of people don't care about Halo. Millions of people care about GT5. Every game from the franchise didn't sell nearly 10 million each for no reason. @chrisulloa No actually you don't. What's your highest rated game? Now compare it to the highest rated game(S) for the PS3.
