    The thing they should not do is be all like Look at dem graphics!

    Instead they should bring out a few gameplay features that we can expect in Halo 4
    Halo is still number 1 on my list of favorite FPS and party games.
    Ohoh the night before Halo 3 was released was the longest night ever for me

    Maybe they'll try to explain the difference in armor as some sort of forerunner upgrades or something.

    I just saw the gameplay and I am unfathomably relieved, and also extra excited.

    The singleplayer campaign will be utterly underwhelming as every fucking halo game after CE, with half the content cut and made into DLC.

    Completely ignoring the dumb DLC comment there, I believe both 2 and 3 aswell as ODST and Reach, all had good or decent campaigns. I had fun with them at least. But, multiplayer is usually where it's at.

    Campaigns weren't quite as amazing as CE's but when has DLC ever been singleplayer-related? The only DLC has been multiplayer map packs.

    Hahaha, no. Have you even checked the stuff they, for example, cut off from Reach? Global offensive rings any bells? Or how about the fact you were supposed to be flying fighter plane and taking part in combatting the covenant vessels closing in on earth in Halo 2? It's fucking ridiculous how much they are cutting out.

    When looking at all that you just can't ignore how half-assed the campaigns actually are.

    I'd probably be more impressed if I could actually see anything. It seems like standard AAA shooter fare- hide everything behind a bunch of fancy shaders, throw in some image compression for good measure and hope nobody looks too closely.

    Wait, they cut out content, therefore the campaigns are half assed? Uh what?

    If you base games on that, no game is good. Half Life 2, a game that has received a metric fuck tonne of awards, and is in the top 10 of every 'best games ever made' list out there, had so much stuff cut from it.

    Masterchief, why he never thought of retirement.
    Isn't he only like 30 in the lore? Slipspace travel and cryogenic sleep fucks up with age measurement, so it's probably been a few years since 3 ended.

    I'm actually interested to see what 343 does with this. I hope they explain the armor change, as well as the tech changes well. That's my main concern, in keeping everything reasonable. The story though, well see where they go with that.

    FUCK YES

    it looks pretty good to me, sorry everyone else
    Agreed. I really like the direction they're taking it. Looks very Halo, but polished and...different, somehow. Still has that familiar feel to it, but with a different tone.

    Edited:

    Isn't he only like 30 in the lore? Slipspace travel and cryogenic sleep fucks up with age measurement, so it's probably been a few years since 3 ended.
    He's technically around 50 or so, if I remember my dates right. We're not really sure how long it's been since Halo 3 (I've heard dates up to 2557 and the 2600s, with many more in the mix), but you're right, he is effectively in his 20s to 30s, because of slipspace travel, cryogenics and the fact that his aging means next to nothing because of the genetic augmentation the Spartan IIs received.

    You understand that these are development screenshots right?

    As-in, the game isn't complete.

    I have no idea how you morons survive day-to-day.

    Game engine can only do so much when the hardware itself is almost a decade old

    If 343 decides to show Chiefs face at one point I'll be incredibly pissed.
    He would look like your average clean shaved white marine pumped with steroids

    Edited:

    Only complain I have is that they change the weapon's design way too much
    Halo 1

    Halo: Reach

    They are different weapon variants, that is why - and because it looks better if you update the detail on them.

    The HUD is surprisingly good, it might easily end up as my favourite Halo HUD.
    It's like a Metro style clean Halo 3 HUD.
