The new Halo game for the X-box 360 was just announced at the Microsoft Press Conference: Halo Reach.

Quincy
Source?

Mandrag Ganon
I was watching the Press Conference on G4. Ran and posted as soon as I saw the trailer.
But incase you don't believe me:

The Halo cow is about to die from overmilking.

SaTsuJiN
No.. the milking.. even at this point.. has just begun! O_O *halo choir music plays*

It was dead around the time Halo 3 came out.

Zack Fair
Doubt its going to die anytime soon.

*CoughSF2/FF7/RE/etcCough*

S_D_J
yeah... but by the time you get HALO pinball... the stench will kind of obvious

Mandrag Ganon
Oh, there are not near as many Halo games as there are Mario, Zelda, Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Ratchet and Clank, and Sonic games.

Not to mention Metroid, which actually has a pinball game.

S_D_J
I'd give you R&C

but the other games are longtime franchise


... and please, if one of those franchise has been well preserved that one is Metroid

Nemesis X
A Halo prequel eh? Might be good. I really don't mind there being another Halo game just as long as its fun. Hopefull this'll be at least better than Halo 3.

Zack Fair
To be honest it all felt uninspired. The gameplay video of Halo:ODST didn't interest me, but then again its been nearly 2 years since Halo 3 came out. Maybe I'm just spoiled by Valve's amazing Episode 2.

SaTsuJiN
heh.. it looks like they didnt bother giving the characters new animation.. everyone animates just like halo 3.. was expecting something more fluid since they are more human and less cybernetic

Ridley_Prime
Wow. That's lazy Bungie for ya right there.

Spartan005
Hopefully this game will be awesome. I don't know if anyone here read the book "fall of reach" but I always talked about how it would make an awesome game/movie.

Halo 3: ODST just looks okay though. bungie seriously is starting to take this franchise a bit too far

That is why it doesn't inspire.

Fall of Reach was a great book. I think the game will be good.

And how do you think they became long time franchises? By continuing to make games.

These comments about Halo Cart and Halo Pinball are just preposterous.

Frankly they see a market that sells, and it'd be stupid not to go for it.

Oh, and everyone knows that recent Sonic games have sucked (Dark Brotherhood excluded), but it continues limp on, and people still buy the games.

this is a truth, a game becomes a franchise by it creator getting greedy and money hungry and exploiting the shit out of its fame.

as for odst, why are people complaining and calling bungie lazy its an expansion not a new game. the graphics should be the same and the gameplay should only have slight modifications. its an extention of a game already out not somthing entirely new.

but they arent spartans.. they shouldnt run exactly the same.. and because they lack the power and ability of said spartans.. the weapons should handle completely different.. i.e. hella recoil on the sniper.. no more bustin off 12 caps of shotgun without your reticle going to the roof, and snipin people with a pistol from half the map away... they should be good yes, but not god-mode good

also bungie, bring back the stun of the plasma rounds ffs.. no point having different weapon sets if they have exactly the same effects as human weapons

and I'd like alternate fire modes as well

Neo Darkhalen
The only reason why Bungie are milking Halo is because they have nothing else to their name, and it seems they can't be bothered to come up with a new series...so I guess they'll keep on churning out Halo titles.

Mandrag Ganon
They could always go back to Marathon. Halo was their big seller, ofcourse they'll stick with it untill it doesn't sell anymore. Why gamble on something that may or may not fail when they have a gold mine out there?

Cliffy B. has already said that that is what he plans for Gears of War, the diference here is that Halo is actually well done...

well for the first part int he games the cheif doesnt run faster the the marines do nor is many times stronger. in fact everything he can do the marines can pretty much do actually they can do them better like aiming.

as for recoil i agree there should be a lot of it since the marines are supposed to be weaker. and were did you see a marine sniping someone with a pistol? that brings me back to the halo 1 days lol. most overpwoered gun ever.



oh god i agree >.<


gears of war bores me personally. i used to like it but i prefer halo so much more. the gameplay is better in halo imo.

thy also talk about how much they love games. you'd atleast think they would try something new

when they said halo 3 was last i was hoping they would stop, but nope all that means is a whole bunch of prequels and spin offs

Mandrag Ganon
Halo is a popular series that sells, of course they will make more. And you know what? I welcome them. I like the games, and I won't think it is rediculus untill they start making as many Halo games as square does Final Fantasy games (Of which there are alot).

SaTsuJiN
I definitely like the story.. but I didnt care for alot of the predictable plot strings.. but I did enjoy the sub-plots

and hell.. 4 player co-op is amazing.. even if you despise the game, you're sure to get some enjoyment with friends

Mandrag Ganon
Yea, well. It's hard to find a shooter that is not predictable.

Tsal Can
Bioshock :P

SaTsuJiN
I consider that more of an Action-RPG with first person viewpoint

Reach will most likely be a pre-qual.

WO Polaski
It has to be.

Halo 1 takes place barely a day after Reach is glassed by the Covenant.

TheGear
Any info on Reach?

Nemesis X
I found a Kotaku page that confirmed that Reach will be on Project Natal.

Spartan005
I hope bungie borrows a bit from the call of duty franchise with this one. Halo has always been a pretty laid back FPS but the battle of Reach needs to be huge and fast paced.

by the way, Master chief wasn't even on reach in the book so maybe we'll be playing more than one character?

whostheking
Any vids of it yet?

Dark Exile

If this is true goes to show what a new engine can do. I am ready to end this where it begins.

Ms.Marvel
*is psyched*

halo+ modern warfare style perks and classes= perfect multiplayer. flawless even. yes

Nemesis X
With Natal support, I wonder if (as a spartan) can grab a brute and twist his neck. That would be awesome.

Zack Fair
Holy Shit...if that is true....

Nemesis X
Originally posted by Zack Fair

If what is true, the Natal support or being able to twist a Brute's neck?

If you're referring to the Natal support then yeah, it's been confirmed that Reach will have Natal support but it won't happen until "it makes sense" Microsoft says.

They weren't exactly what you would call breathtaking to me. Pretty much the same as the graphics of the last Halo games IMO (not saying they're bad or anything, but you know. Not that much of an improvement either, but that's just my opinion).
Then again, they are only leaked shots, so it may not be fair to judge the game fully just yet.

they look pretty damn good

and the guns in particular are almost photo realistic... especially those last two pics

Dark Exile
true that. Look at that Spartan Laser. jawdrop

S_D_J
So are they finally making a new engine, or is it going run off the same one (as ODST did), because if so, they are not very good graphics..not anymore

...not even true HD... ( I mean 720p)

Isn't 720p pretty standard fare for most console games?

S_D_J
Originally posted by ArtificialGlory

for most, but not HALO

it runs at 1152x640 (640p)

I know it's "sacrifice resolution for better framerate", but c'mon, 3 years and there are already better looking games running at least at 720p and with not so much of hiccup

BackFire
It's hard to judge graphical quality off of photos off-screen. Don't get too excited.

Zack Fair
I am pretty sure its a new engine. The detail in the weapons is too much for the old engine. They almost look like Killzone 2's weapons(which is awesome) I especially like how the BR looks and there is a new "needler/luncher type" weapon that looks cool.

It's not that much lower than 1280x720, but maybe Halo runs at 60fps? In that case, it's worth it.

I was talking about the photorealistic comment, which isn't the case with the current engine, and certainly not worth getting all excited like everywhere in the web (not just here)

like I said, there are already games running at a better resolution and steady framerate, like: Killzone 2... or in the case of 360, GoW

Fanboyism.

Its hard to fight the urge tto go nuts over any info regarding a franchise when you're a hardcore fan.

I try to fight the fanboy in me, but its a never-ending battle.

Ms.Marvel
man bungie sucks at continuity and its starting to bug me a bit. the battle for reach started and ended before the events in halo 1 even started. so why are things like the battle rifle the mainstream weaponry for the UNSC in this game? according to First Strike when Fred and his Spartan team found the battle rifle and magnums in the underground Reach lab the weapons were prototypes and not even field tested... so what's up with that? why shit on your own novels?

I was more disappointed (and confused) in the fact that you didn't fight ANY of them in ODST.

General G
Yeah, Bungie's Explanation of that was kinda put together quickly. We see their dead bodies and we see their energy sword hilts, but that's it. If I remember correctly, I think thier explanation was that when the ship jumped into slipspace, it killed most of the original Covenant ground assault, and then the Covenant only sent in Brutes, which killed the remaining Elites.

Zack Fair
Dr. Hasley is hot.

'Nuff Said.

This looks better than wars and ODST. I'm sure this will be a buy and not a rental.

Yea... that explanation makes no sense, considering that the first mission is "Immediately after drop" which was while the ship was jumping into slipspace. Chief saw the fleet before it went to Earth after he killed Regret, and there is NO way Chief made it to Regret that quickly...

I know, but I just viewed it like the cute anime chick in every anime.

Spartan005
It was nice seeing a bunch of spartans together but the trailer itself was kind of a letdown. I mean, how much more uneventfull could it get?

But the engine looks great, and I like the idea of a darker halo game. hopefully bungie stops with the laid back shooter approach and goes for some more fast paced combat like the CoD games... after all this is the fall of reach, which I believe was the biggest battle ever throughout the halo universe

Nemesis X
The trailer was nothing but weak sauce. I see a group of Spartans and OMG, an Elite pops up after the trailer! eek!

...Come on Bungie, you can do better than that erm

I doubt Bungie will change the formula, but hey I hope they do.

SpadeKing
its a team full of spartan IIIs and one spartan II.... has Bungie ever though with the books, new games, and the new shows that they are just complicating this storyline even more?

Zack Fair
Its not really Bungie's fault. They are actually tired of working on Halo after Halo. This is supposed to be their last game and plan to go out with a bang by giving fans what they want. IE: Reach battles, Spartan team, Spartan III etc. etc.

They also came up with Noble team to give themselves breathing room for an all-new story not attached to the strings that come with the novels.

BTW 30 covenant troops vs player, 4 spartans and 8 marines is going to be beast.

ODST wasn't bad. It was just overpriced for an expansion(fkn microsoft) But it was a great expansion.

Halo Reach on the other hand is an entirely new entry with a new engine; new focus on re-capturing the amazement/exploring elements of Halo: Combat Evolved; NO FKN FLOOD what so ever which makes the game WIN IMHO; and finally a team of Spartans. We're bound to get some kickass scenes.

Edit: I'm aware ODST didn't have flood, but alas its part of Halo 3 which had the fricking Cortana level...*Sniff* That level is still painful.

General G

Spartan005
Why does no one seem to like Halo 3? I just don't get it.

Anyway, the beta should be interesting. I'm glad they're not making the multiplayer class based.... that would make the game way too similar to CoD. But I wonder what exactly they're changing around so much that they need a beta in the first place. Unless its just a marketing decision

Zack Fair
I can't wait! I loved Halo 3. I still play Halo 3 multiplayer, and have beaten the campaign multiple times.

zeroking24
halo is the best game made. I have met the creator and he is so cool he seid i gcould get a job there but im only in high school right now so i cant but want to. I have read all the books and comics played all the games on legendary and beat them all and will never get tierd.

FistOfThe North
no. it's called "birth of a spartan". saw it while watching "V". and it's the best video game commercial i've ever seen in a long while.

I played a few games then backed out and now I cant get back in. Damn servers. U would think they had learned with the MW2 map pack. I enjoyed playing Head Hunter (no homo).

Why would Bungie learn from a mistake Infinity Ward made?

Matchmaking is all messed up though, Takes forever to play a game.

Its working just fine for me. Have you checked your search? Maybe you have selected skill or language which makes things slower.

Sneak up behind someone and hold down the Mele attack button for about a second.

Anyone know if there is an assassin spree medal? I was trying to find out and assassinated 4 people in a row, but was betrayed while assassinating the final person.

anyone else getting that servers are down messages

Its been like that for a while now. I saw the 250K + numbers on the beta and I almost choked. Did you get to try any armor abilities? The Elite roll is among the funniest and most useful ones. In fact is very versatile for varying situations.

The DMR is teh r godlyz! So is the new version of the Plasma Rifle. Much much better man. Anyone done any nice things with armor abilities? I am mainly sticking to the sprint because that was a feature I always wanted in Halo, and because I've been playing MW2 a lot the last couple of months so I'm used to sprinting about. I like how no AA is entirely abusable for the moment(exceptt the elite's roll but meh that is the only AA they get in the beta so far so it needs to be up there with the rest of them), but all the jetpacking in powerhouse makes me lol.

Don't try to get close to anyone during the armorlock animation. It will drain your shields and leave you completely vulnerable to a beatdown. Instead just time it so you can stick them as they come out of the animation.

from most favorite to least: stalker, scout, jetpack, armorlock.

scout when use correctly can be reeeally good to confuse the enemy team. i was playing a team slayer match on powerhouse and my three allies all left halfway through so it was 4v1. stalker is really good for situations like that because it allows you to do hit and run types of things. i lost but only by three kills.

Nice!

Ms.Marvel
grenades are really irritating btw >_>

Armorlock for the win against nade spamming.

Ms.Marvel
indeed!

armorlock is also helpful for ambushes because it allows you to peak around walls.
