I wonder if its a prequel or sequel. Either is possible but I guess a prequel would have tons more action considering what happens.

It's based on a novel, so it's definitely prequel.

The trailer mentioned "Spartans".

These threads are so ****ing pointless. Either give us a link to what the hell you are watching or go into a bit of detail as to what it is you're on about. Seriously, some of you are worse than the 1ST COMMNT111 people on Youtube. Yeah, you posted the news first, great... whether or not you're even interested in the news is another story...

Watch the conference, genius. Go to gamespot or ign, it's not a freaking rocket science to search for the conference video.

Too bad the good parts of the conference are long over. I already tried watching them, all I was getting was this shit about Facebook for 360 or whatever.

I mean, we now have three MGS threads. Checking the forum before you post isn't freaking rocket science.

Gawd.

Antipop: Agreed...unless the OP updates his/her post with pics/info/vids/etc...which the other posters have done. Shame on the OP!!!

Woooooo! I was hoping they'd pick up that part of the story. Should be good.

You guys seem to not understand how much Bungie will screw up the adaption.

My respect for Bungie decreased ever since they made the first Halo (ONI was awesome). The game is overhyped by every definition of the word and their milking of the Halo cow makes me lose respect for them even more. Come up with something new for once mabye?

If it's as awful as ODST looks, I doubt Sony has much to worry about

I rather enjoyed Fall of Reach, although it did astound me how the writer somehow made John even more of personalityless bore than he is the games.

He's just straightforward with fighting. That's sort of the whole thing with the Spartans; the most emotion they show is the finger smiley across the faceplate. The rest is war prep and completing the mission.

Lucky you, on first name terms with this 'John'... Seriously, is that the Master Chief's name? That's remarkably mundane for such a hammy franchise :LOL:

Someone needs to work out an algorithm for when the PC version of each Halo title will arrive. I need to work out how Halo 4 will affect my pension.

This would be Halo 0 more like. Since there won't be a Halo unless they expand with the covenant storyline. And yes, John is MC's name, it was briefly mentioned in Halo 3 as well.

I doubt they'll bother with the development of the Spartan II program that they go into in the book.

I have a feeling this will be a short-ass game like ODST with us playing as a nameless Spartan that is going to kinda be like Fred in the book, defending Reach from whatever new random shit Bungie decides to make up along the way.

I hope I'm wrong though. I hope Bungie dedicated most of their resources to Reach shortly after Halo 3 while leaving a few schmoes behind to develop ODST.

Loving the direction for the story, I fully enjoyed reading Reach.

Didn't Halo 3 blow hard?

Nope. It's the best co-op, story driven campaign game around and the most demanding and perfectly balanced single player fps created. The forge and movie/demo mode are so good every fps should adopt something similar.

Other than that it's terrible ;)

No, post something. Post a link. Post anything.

I'm not going to scour the internet for information on a game you felt was important enough to make a topic about, but not actually post any ****ing information.

He didn't make the thread :p
It wasn't really meant to him. "You" in a general sense.

Like, anybody reading that post right now who wants to make a thread for "XXX ANNOUNCED!!!!1 comments pl0x", just stop. Remove your hands from the keyboard and take control of yourself. Let somebody else who actually feels like informing the other denizens of this board to take up the reins.

Absinthe is right. If you don't accompany your thread with relevant information, it's facing deletion.
