I'm not owning game console since 98, no halo 4 for me. But I have tried first one in the past, and level design was so bad (lot of copypasta one fragment over and over again) that I never finished it.

Halo was sort of a Tech Demo for the Xbox. It was real purty, but repetitive. I mean, it fits on a single 650MB CD. Halo 2 was immense compared.

Not to mention the library.

I am a very big halo fan, and of course Halo 1, Halo 2, and Halo 3 where the best.

ODST was just not fun, and it didn't fell like a halo game.
Halo reach was pretty good but then again it didn't fell like a halo game.

so for halo 4 i just don't know, Halo was bungies game. but i will play it when it comes out.

I remember spending around 4 hours trying to beat that level on legendary... spent a good chunk of it on the top floor in the last stretch, trying to run past the last 20 or so flood that can kill you instantly. About the hardest damn thing I've ever played.

All those hours wasted gaining corridor by painful corridor on Legendary. Shuddering every time someone whispers, "Plasma Grenade behind you."

And for what? A man and an Elite having a hug? My pain and suffering rewarded with something I coulda found on DeviantArt?

It was Bungie's idea of a humorous hint to the twist in Halo 2-3. Frankly, I actually plotted out almost everything that was coming in Halo's storyline (seriously, I was amazed how spot-on I was about predicting it). My only disappointment is that it seems like the only way Halo can resolve a character arc is with the character dying or being about as good as dead as far as the main plot is concerned...

Halo 4 is being developed by a new company; it might turn out better (or worse) than we expected. I'll wait for more trailers/gameplay demos. I most likely will, though.

Are you in or out?

Feb 14 2012, 9:38pm Anchor

Honestly Halo 4 is going to be the franchise's Episode 1 or ST: Enterprise.

I'll have you know I liked Star Trek: Enterprise. *smacks him with a fedora hat*

I will. Halo has always been a good franchise. And the plot and gameplay have always been fun and have stolen hundreds of hours from my life. Halo 4 might be bad, but its part of a good franchise and looks promising. not to mention it has frank o'connor working on it, so atleast he familiar with the series. it will be atleast worth a try.

I will most likely play it just for the story line and call it quits. I didn't really care too much for the online play on most of the Halo games.

The cooperative Spartan Ops mode also has the option to be played in SP fashion (it will likely have a minor rebalance and one or two pieces of different dialogue as a result but pretty much the same). and they're releasing Spartans Ops for free, and it's going to be going on for about 3-6 months, I think.

Which is basically full of old Bungie employees. Don't worry, I think Halo 4 will come out great.

Some, not all. I do expect good things from 343, though. They've got some serious potential and ambition.

Thoughts?

The new branch of forerunner weapons is exiting. I'm not sure how I feel about them becoming the new enemy, though. And why is he fighting the Covenant? What happened to the alliance?

Graphics looks great. Animation looks a lot more fluid. I wonder if this wasn't rendered on 360 hardware.

I'm still not liking the idea of the story going more in into the Chief's character. He was made to be hollow for a reason. I don't think this will feel anything like Bungie's Halo.

@l0rdx3nu

Why Chief is fighting the Cov -- this is a splinter faction, based on all that's been seen. As a result they are separate from Arbiter. I mean, think about it, there were grunts who both left the Covenant and stayed with it, there might have even been -some- Elites who proved they stood with the Covenant to the bitter end.

The new forerunner opponents -- it's better than the Flood, lets put it that way. These enemies will be a great deal more challenging in a thinking-man's sort of way.

Chief's character -- they've actually already investigated in other materials into Master Chief John's past, including even showing his face as a teenager and as a kid on Reach. That was in comics, and some bits and pieces in novels though. There's also one that pretty m uch shows us what was supposed to be the actual final level in Halo 2 (Chief had pretty much a whole other boss fight and at least one level that got cut).

My biggest concern -- notice how Chief suddenly is sprinting? That, along with the melee combat, looks eerily like Killzone 3 and Resistance 3. I love both of those games, but Halo shouldn't start taking aspects from them that change the fundamentals of the game. If they wanna add a section in a snow tundra like Helghan or 6 new weapons like from Insomniac, fine, but if the game doesn't, at its core, feel the same, I worry a little for its identity.

Also, MP looks -alot- more like Killzone 3 meets Halo 3.

That probe chucking the returning grenades and generating shields is pretty clever. +1 design for 343.

Aye, I know of these. A large section in Halo: The Fall Reach is over Chief's training. My concern is, gameplay wise, that you will not really feel like you are the Chief, which is why Bungie designed him to be silent.

Reqieumthefallen wrote:My biggest concern -- notice how Chief suddenly is sprinting? That, along with the melee combat, looks eerily like Killzone 3 and Resistance 3.

I believe the sprinting is an armor ability like in Reach, only the icon above the motion tracker doesn't change... I haven't played Killzone 3, so I can't make that comparison.

Did a little searching, found a trailer for "War Games"?...

Looks good, kinda all over the place, though, less controlled than Bungie's . Biggest dislike is the new announcer voice. He sounds horrid. Please get the old guy back.

It's the same announcer as in previous installments of the series.

Though I dislike the idea that Halo 4 won't be developed by Bungie, I'm still rather excited for the release.

I agree, these new enemies will, in MO, make the game more exciting and challenging. The Flood were rather mindless and focused mainly on the Horde aspect of fighting. Continious amounts of vile creatures, all sent out at the same time in an attempt to overwhelm you. I'm looking forward to fighting these new opponents though I'm a little curious as to why we are fighting the Forerunners in the first place...?

I haven't played Killzone 3 or Resistance 3, so I can't really compare, but I believe that they're going to develop the idea of "abilities" in the armor such as the sprinting. I wouldn't be suprised if I saw more of this later.

l0rdx3nu wrote:Graphics looks great. Animation looks a lot more fluid. I wonder if this wasn't rendered on 360 hardware.

The animations suprised me a bit. The use of animations mid-combat like that is somewhat unusual for the Halo series I think. The graphics look beautiful but I'm not suprised with all the visual development going on these days. 

l0rdx3nu wrote: Did a little searching, found a trailer for "War Games"?...

I was never a big fan of Halo multiplayer, I was in it more for the story and co-op. "War Games" looks to me like regular multiplayer TDM and FFA. The drop pod idea was interesting, but I feel as though they're trying to take successful aspects from other games and implement them into Halo 4.

Everytime I heard the Halo announcer I wanted to shoot myself. 'Nough said.
