Yep.... Had to sit through an hour of ho-hum mostly Kinect BS, for a short teaser video of the only cool announcement in the whole press conference.

This has to be one of the most epic returns, but I have to say when the hell did Master Chief have boosters?

Wait... M$ keeping a dead horse alive after Bungie put a fork in it last year? REALLY!

Honestly, not shocking at all. I missed the conference but read some reports. Was there ANYTHING surprising this year at all? I mean, Halo was just a given right? Assuming it was just a teaser and the game will drop sometime in late 2012... if we're all still here, which we won't be.

whoa thats crazy news, i thought for sure they were done after reach. that was the general census we were getting from everyone at bungie. hopefully this one proves to be a good addition to the series. personally, reach got stale for me after like 2 months.

Great about Halo 4 and AE!

But Microsft press conference as a whole take out the Halo out and you have nothing!! Not one new IP remakes of games that noone really cares about *COUGH* FABLE *COUGH* and droves of Kinect rubbish!!

They really had no option but to bolt halo 4 onto the end of that if they didnt it would have been awful! Even Gears looked well dull!!

GRAW and MW3 EPIC!!

No battlefield whats that about??

Yah haha, the glory of streaming, just scanned forward through all that except the Mass Effect 3, Batman, and Tomb Raider parts. Damn near wet myself when ME3 came on.

That Halo 4 teaser got my blood pumping, and thinking of the Halo CE Anniversary being released what...a week after MW3... hmmmm.... Halo wins.

YouTube video?

Choose the Microsoft Press Conference and scan through to about the 2 hour mark I think. It's now not loading up on my pc, fucking microsoft! :p

To everyone saying Halo lost its interest after 2 etc, although you have your own opinion doesn't mean carrying on the series is a bad thing. Tbh i would love for the Halo series to last for the rest of my gaming days, i mean i know it wont but theres always hope :P.

Must have logged months of time on halo CE and halo 3 haha :uzi: :Bounce:

Halo Reach was the last one made by Bungie.

Nobody expected it to be the last Halo period. Except stupid people who don't know what companies do to good cash cows.

Halo will continue until it's either a) run into the ground or b).......no, just a. Just a.

Also, whoever listed release dates, you forgot Gears3 9/2011

I, for one, am totally psyched for it. Can't friggin wait. Fall 2012 is toooo loonnggg to wait. CE Remake will have to hold me over.

Kind of worried about it not being made by bungie but the trailer was good and it seems like it will probably be good in the end

Will probably be the first Halo I don't get day one. Not to knock 343 since we haven't given them a chance to prove themselves yet, but I don't really care about Halo anymore. And although I loved Halo 1, I'm not really pumped about a remastered version.

It would have surprised me if you had told me two years ago that I'd be saying this, but I'm looking forward to Gears 3 much more.

Agreed.

I'm pumped. I'm very interested to see what new twists 343 incorporates. As long as there's no Kinect.... please God, no Kinect.

He was so awesome, he grew them.

I think Halo 4 is going to be pretty rad. I'm going to buy it for sure and see how it treats me.

ahahaha... Although im pretty sure he always has them. He has always has that big thing on his back and we never really saw what it was for since we never really saw him in space.

No because its not a magnum that he uses, its a grenade launcher. 2 magnums float by and the third is different. Its the same as the launcher used in Reach, i guess they just decided to throw it in there lol

It looks nothing like the one they have in Reach I paused it at 1:05 and the barrel is definably smaller, and he uses it one handed.

Edit: it seems to be a modified version of the magnum you get a better look at 1:11

Well either way, its not a pistol he is using, its an explosive launcher of some kind, which is pretty obvious by the fact that he shoots it, gets rid of the front piece, and then replaces it with another one after locking the gun back down

I will have to agree with you on that

Ok it was inevitable that Microsoft kicks the Halohorse even when Bungie decided to bury it, but seriously. A new trilogy? Just let Halo rest in its grave and try something new or at least show some respect and just make one more cashin and leave.

Really not looking up to this.

So I guess no one bothered to read the articles around Reach. Bungie was done, Microsoft wasn't. Bungie completed their Halo commitment to the franchise and microsoft moved it to another studio (343 I think?) It's been known since Reach came out that 4 was coming.

It was never in Bungies hands if Halo was ever truly 'done,' only if they wanted to continue with the franchise. They clearly left the door open for a Halo 4 with the legendary ending to 3, so nothing was dead and buried.

What I would like to know is at what point MC got a rocket pack, and why wasn't that gun available in H3? >:( Once more there is a plot hole in what equipment is available and where that I doubt will be properly explained.

Never said I hate Halo. I actually like Halo (single player only though). Remove your head from your ass and learn to read please.

I'm just annoyed that they're wasting their energy making another one when it's not needed. They could totally have focused on getting a new IP out that's maybe original (hopefully).

Like CoD, it's just beating a dead horse.

As far as I can tell, I was contributing to the thread. I posted remarks about Halo 4. That is the subject matter at hand is it not?

However negative my opinions on the game are, my post is well within the guidelines of "contributing" to the thread.

Now, am I to assume that, in order to "contribute" to this thread, I can only post positive opinions about Halo 4 so as not to piss off the fanboys?

No, no you can't

Yes, yes you can.

If you noticed, he popped another one on after he gets outside the wrecked cruiser. It looks like an attachment than the actual gun. I'd rather they not incorporate that into the actual game though...

Also, just for the record, Bungie may be the studio that created Halo, but 343i (the studio making Halo 4) still contains many of the people that made the first 3. So new studio doesn't mean entirely new group of people making the game.

Can't wait for this game, 1.5 years is a long way away though :(

For those that missed it, in an interview after the announcement, Microsoft's spokesman said that Halo 4 has been in the works for over a year already, so it could mean a huge awesome game :woop: or possibly just a game of speculative quality (ie we'll have to wait and see) with a new engine :/

The Halo series still has a lot of story left to tell. I could care less about Multiplayer (Personally. I haven't liked the Multiplayer since Halo 2) but that's no reason why they shouldn't keep putting out new Campaigns. Even if it was the same game engine and everything and they just released new levels with new storylines I would be happy personally.

That said, don't look at Halo 4 as another sequel in the series. It's not. Halo 4, as far as anybody can tell, is going in a completely different direction from the original halo's. Naturally it's still going to be an FPS. That's just how Bungie is and since 343i is maintaining Bungie's Halo fanbase now, they don't want to alienate people from the series like Halo Wars did. But this diluted Covenant vs. Human war is over. That storyline was small time compared to the big picture of the series. The big picture is on a galactic scale. The Forerunner acting as the guardians of the the Galaxy to, the Flood coming from another galaxy and threatening to consume and destroy everything, thus leading to the ultimate purpose of Halo's Creation. The back history of the Forerunner and their past history with the Human race (War and eventually the de-evolution of the Human Species.)

Like I said, compared to the Forerunner, Flood, and true purpose of the Halo's, the little aliens attempting to activate the rings for religious purposes is small-time.

And since we're likely to be introducing all new elements into the game (Forerunner and their technology) that means this game is free of it's past restrictions and is allowed to become whatever it wants. It could play just like the last Halos (which is ok with me personally) but it also has the option to be a more story-driven game like Half-Life, Singularity, Breakdown, etc... which is equally welcome in my book. All I'm interested in is the narration. Give me more books and keep pumping out the games with excellent storylines and cutscenes.

Also. I will say Halo is nothing like CoD in that respect. At least with "official" Halo titles we only see one every few years. 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2012. And they all use completely new in-house engines. CoD doesn't even change engines. MW3 is still running on a modified version of the same engine that MW1 and every game from that point on has used. They put out new games so quick they don't have time to develop and learn how to use a new engine to begin with.

I don't think you can really equate Halo with Call of Duty. There's a new Call of Duty game out every year, the world ending wouldn't stop them from making another one.

Halo games come out with a couple years at least between each one.
