    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.

    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

    Ive been a GIANT Halo fan since day 1. I hope 343 does a good job.

    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 :D

    They'd a story apparently, but they couldn't find anyone willing to take it on.

    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 :p

    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!

    But it was on a galaxy nexus so it there was a lot of buffering involved :(
