Default Halo 4

I don't know how old this is (I avoid IGN and other game news items) but looks like Halo 4 is slated to come out in about a year.

Halo 4 Trailer (E3 2011) - YouTube

I'm iffy about it. I was a early fan and kinda stopped playing the series after 3. Never played the RTS. Didn't Bungie hand the torch over to some other production company after Reach?

I guess I could google it all, but figured I'd share the vid

If you stopped playing after 3, you aren't really an early fan lol. Halo sucked after the first one. These days, it is full of a bunch of loud-mouthed, obnoxious, and rude kids.

Im a bug halo fan. Pretty much the only game i play lol. Halo Reach and ODST came after 3. Odst wasnt my favorite but I enjoyed it and i loked reach. Reach was bungie's last halo and now 343industries has taken over. Thwy did an original halo remake wich i bought because it was cheap. Its pretty much the same game with altered graphics. I personally think it s awesome and i like the multiplayer maps but you can really tell the difference between gMeplay now and then.


Hey nyc, are you referring to the game or the multiplayer? Lol. I actually have a good multilayer experience, and i hate talking smack online. Usually its civil (as civil as it can get on an online death match anyway )

Yeah, I have to agree, multiplayer got old after all the kids joined in Halo 3. And that's what I meant. ODST was a let down. I thought it was going to be more like Splinter Cell / Solid Snake where you creeped around and silently killed elites and if you got into a firefight, you didn't have much of a chance of survival. Nope...it was a run-and-gun like the others.

Reach was decent enough, but I hate prequels that come after a series. Look at Star Wars Episodes 1-3 for a good example of that.

Although, I'm hoping 4 will tap into the stories in the books a little more. A friend and I, after finishing Halo 3, was thinking the planet that MC and Cortana were heading to was Onyx. The abandoned planet where they trained the Spartans I and IIs. And there are Spartan IIIs, that are badass, but not as badass as the Spartan IIs, but a lot more of them.

Eh...here's to hoping.

Have you read Cryptum & Primordium? The story becomes pretty convoluted in Primordium and that's supposed to tie in with the plot of Halo 4.

I'm looking forward to it, I was/am a MASSIVE fan of the series for years, it's my favourite franchise, but after reading Primordium, I don't know what direction they plan to take it in.

I really only buy halo or modern warfare. I would like to get more into gaming again but have just gotten too busy over the years

I liked halo 1, 2 and 3. I played online a lot on 3. Halo was was kind of a disappointment but reach was amazing and downloadable content on 3 and reach was also amazing. I feel like the series should be left alone though; they're milking a dying cause.

The plot line of the halo's flowed really well. However, this could be good too. It will be either awesome, or a flop.

I am more interested in the online play anyway.

I tend to to go the other way, I'm more interested in Single Player and the story in Halo games. Anything MP wise is just an extra. I'm the same with most games.

Don't get me wrong, I like a bit of Team Slayer and Swat, but for me, SP is where it's at.

Yea, you gotta have a good campaign. Without a good story the game kinda falls apart for me. I tried playing modern warfare once and I had no idea what the story was or why my character died and switched. Unfortunately, I couldn't play it.

Its always fun to finish on legendary too

There are some pretty good fan made movies, Helljumper springs to mind:

Halo: Helljumper: Episode 1 - HD Movie - YouTube

The acting is pretty hammy, but for something fan made & funded, it's excellent.

I had heard the movie was slated for Peter Jackson to direct and the Rock (lol) as Master Chief. But the movie got bogged down with legal crap (rights and royalties) that couldn't be cleared up quickly and that's when it became something no one wanted to touch

I recon halo is really good for Xbox LAN parties. I just connect a bunch of Xboxes to my wifi router(And no need for that Port Forward Crap, Its PnP!), and get some tv's. Next thing you know, you've pulled an all nighter!

Gahhhhh! Frustrating. I had to sneak it in during a bathroom break at work
But it was on a galaxy nexus so it there was a lot of buffering involved

You're gonna $#!+ your pants when you see it lol.

Its pretty much all I cared about at E3.....

Finally got round to watching it!

I have mixed feelings. I LOVE the new HUD and hope it doesn't change much in the final version. The video overlay thing is awesome and exactly what I'd imagine Spartans to be using. The audio sounds awesome too, a lot punchier that previous iterations and it sounds as if the weapons have a bit more oomph to them. Also, was that Steve Downes as Spartan-117? I'd thought he hadn't signed on, but it sounds like he has. If it's not, whoever it is does an excellent job. Musically, they're going to have a MASSIVE task living up to Marty O'Donnell and it's unclear from the trailer if they can. It also looks gorgeous.

I think I like what they're doing with Cortana too, her deterioration into rampancy is one of the key points of the story by all accounts. Her little ballistic bit at the end of the trailer took me aback.

On to the bad, I knew the Covenant were back, I'm slightly disappointed to see Elites working with them again. I'll probably need to read Grasslands to find out what the deal is there, I've just been waiting for the Kindle release.

Also, not sure if I'm keen on the new enemies (the sword/light rifle guy), it would have been ok if it wasn't for the skull thing when his face opened. Although I think I know what the deal is there. Primordium explains that.

More positive than negative though and I'll still be getting the limited edition!

PS - The Didact also sounds exactly as I imagined he would.

any idea what books would be good to read and in what order? i know i cant go through all of them but if theres one or two that would tie in to this id like to get a head start, so i wont be lost and left with questions in the story.

game wise though i have to say im not too keen on forerunner/promethean vision. aside from that it looks like its gonna be halo with a few tweaks... and no BLOODY BLOOM!

Most of the books are pretty good and are all worth a read.

I think my favourite is probably The Fall of Reach though, it gives the back story about how the Spartan program started and explains what happened on Reach before it fell. Then I'd go for First Strike, that bridges the gap between the first 2 games and gives a little info on how MC escaped and got back to Earth. He meets up with other Spartans in that one too.

The 2 Forerunner books can be read at any time, Cryptum & Primodrium, to be read in that order. Cryptum is easily the better of the 2. I'd recommend those because they give the backstory on The Didact & his Prometheans. Also touches on the Human-Forerunner war that happened hundreds of thousands of years ago.

There's Grasslands as well, that's s series of short stories but it takes place between Halo 3 & 4. I can't comment on if it's good or not as I'm still to read it myself.

Nice! I've loved every Halo game, but wasn't a huge fan of Halo Reach no offense.
Halo 4 looks like it's going to be a pretty good halo game.
I can't wait to try out the multiplayer on it also.

None taken!

MP does look ok, not sure I'm a fan of the class system they've implemented, but I'll wait and see. Single Player and Spartan Ops do look good though!

Yeah, I'm not really sure about the whole class system thing and I find some of the armor abilities to be annoying myself. Seeing through walls? I've also heard from one of my friends about these shields you can carry now.

Yep, check that from about 32 seconds in. It's the Blue thing the Spartan is carrying.

Cool trailer. How much you want to bet that blue shield is going to get old?

Yep!

If it does become a pain though, hopefully 343 will step in and nerf it pretty quickly. (Bungie were good like that)

Yeah, hopefully they will. It reminds me of another game that had something like that, but I can't put my finger on it....



It looks like it's going to be a fun game and the MP looks like it's going to be fun along with spartan ops.

Seriously.. why does Mickeysoft still use PnP. It's suuper insecure.

I usually pick it up at the midnight release and then say to myself that I'm just going to take a peek at it. Before I know it, I see the sun creeping through the windows...

Just got Halo 4 but haven't played it because my son is still finishing up his homework. Trying to set a good example by not playing until he's done. Dang it! Haha

The first couple of missions have been the best so far (although I'm only half way through mission 6 at the moment). Pretty impressed, the graphics are immense and whilst it sounds very tinny, the soundtrack is very good.

Not too sure what I make of some of the new weapons, they lack punch and seem underpowered. The Promethean Bolt Shot is probably one of the most pointless guns I've used in a game.

I won't give too much away, but the story is incredible. The Intro is very impressive and there's a cutscene at the end of Mission 5 where you meet someone who's eluded to in the books and previous game, that was jaw dropping (not graphically).

Overall, I'm really enjoying so far and I've not even started Multiplayer or Spartan Ops yet.

Anyone know if there will be a demo to download on the Xbox?

I don't think they do demos for Halo. Maybe check RedBox?

Halo 4 is pretty good. 343 did a really great job.

Diving into the MP now, it is much more CoD like than the previous Halos, but I enjoy it.

I'm undecided on MP, but I think that's because I'm sooo out of practice.

Also just started my Legendary run through and it's no where near as bad as I anticipated it being.

Not bragging or anything, but I got a killimanjaro on my first MP game on Halo 4. Ok maybe bragging a little Never gotten close to one in other games. Pretty much all downhill from there.

Legendary is super easy once you know what to do. My saves got messed up a little and I didn't get credit for completing it. Had to do 3 missions all over again, but at this point I could run through them no sweat.

Pffft, Killimajaro, whatever

In saying that, I've just seen they've added a Swat playlist so I'm slightly happier about MP thing now.

Yeah, if you hang back a bit, pick off grunts/jackals/crawlers with headshots, it makes Elites & Knights a lot easier. Lack of Ammo is annoying, but there's no point in making it too easy.
