That halo 3 teaser is one I play on a regular basis, even still. I'm really hoping infinite stands for open world.

I know Halo's backbone is heavily multiplayer.

But I'm still hoping for a knockout story like Halo 2 and 3.

I loved 4's campaign story. 343 put a ton of effort into that story and the quality shows in all of the dialogue and especially the cut-scenes.

And actually, as a side note. What an improvement in graphics.

The Halo 3 announcement was mostly pre-rendered stuff.

And this one is in-engine footage, and it look pretty damned incredible.

That looked super cg. I don't belie that was in game at all.

Is Master Chief even still alive?

This looks good, but, the Halo games got repetitive and kind of boring after a while. Still love the original Halo games with Master chief and the story.

Multiplayer was always a clusterfuck for me and everyone was a marksman in the game.

The story has gone stale since 3. And they've taken no real chances with the campaign other than make the AI unfairly difficult and dull. The multi is always great but they need to take some chances with it.

I hated 5. The campaign was such horseshit and the bad guys were brutally hard for no reason...I mean halo 2 was crazy hard but I never felt cheated.

Back when I actually played on my 360, I had 5. I couldn't be fucked to remember what that game was about other than everything was overly orange.

The promethian fucksticks. Everything about them was orange. The whole campaign of Halo 4 was nothing but an orange screen because every fucking mob was orange and every gun shot orange and the levels were orange.

I haven't been following Halo news in a while. I never bothered to beat 5 either even after getting it for my brother on release day. Is this a sequel? The helmet and armor on his thigh look like old school Halo 2/3 armor. Then it cuts to the current armor from 4/5.

Proof that Stevie Vai did play the Halo 2 theme.


Skip to about 8:50 to hear him play.

Infinite will show up at E3...expected to be a next gen launch title BUT there are rumors it will show up on the current gen...I cant imagine the base Xbox can run the new engine...One X probably....be curious to see what they show.

Also been reading alot of 343 interview and they acknowledge that 4 and 5 were letdowns...they were rushed and no one liked working on the old graphics engine as it was old as fuck and difficult to work with. MS gave them all the time they needed / wanted to get this right. Sounds like they are all very excited about whats to come.

Also, MS toyed with Halo 3 being the last game after Bungie left...glad that wasnt the case.

Came across this last night. Fan made menu for the game....even fake, it got my hella hyped.

Hmmm. Buy xbox.

Or buy Windows 10 and play it on badass Gaming PC. Decisions, Decisions.

Depends on if they optimize it right and it actually runs okay.
