[Yahoo] Halo 4 First Look

Don't shoot me for it being Yahoo News

Ok go ahead and shoot me I can't get the hyperlink to work for some reason. I'll post it below but you'll have to post the link in your browser. Sorry folks!

He's back. Or will be, shortly.
We last saw the 1,000-pound star of Microsoft's Halo franchise, the iconic Master Chief, hurtling through space after finishing the fight (kind of) in 2007's Halo 3. A fourth game was revealed to be in the works last year, but the specifics have been under tight wraps.
Those loosened up a bit on Monday thanks to the release of a behind-the-scenes trailer created by 343 Industries, the Microsoft developer tasked with handling the franchise. And we're guessing you're interested, as "Halo 4" almost immediately vaulted into the Top 10 Twitter trending topics within hours of the video's premiere.

They modeled Cortana after a girl I know from High School, so if anyone finds shots of her, please post!

As much as i don't like seeing games that people say are being milked i feel like Halo has such a massive back-story that would be just absolutely amazing to play and explore in a game and there are still tons of mystery's the series has to give to fans. Games like COD are just so old now as far as story goes the characters get killed off and you never really feel like you know the person your playing or what they have been though. Halo is just a much more cinematic game and the art style is still one of my favorites. And ya bungie is going to move on to there next masterpiece but Halo will always have that place in my heart for being one of my first and most played FPS games.

it looks better than i expected but once it's running with all the works, it won't look any better than reach. the problem i have here is brand fatigue. it would had been better to have created a fresh trilogy on new hardware and really dazzle us. cause microsoft can't go a year without a halo, 343 could had just made an expansion based on the lore using ce anniversary. makes sense. bungie did this with odst and it worked.

also, master chief had a great ambiguous ending that fit perfectly with the lore's take on how spartans are remembered in battle. digging him out is a lam move that just ruins things. 343 as a new studio should had done what other great sci fi's do and do it's own thing. i'm sure they could had written a spin off, a splinter story to make a new trilogy on. new ip's arent so bad. star trek did this and we got picard wink.gif stargate did this and we got atlantis wink.gif i don't see the need to cling on to these things when a story is put to bed. for me reach will always be the goodbye to halo.

I think you're confused. 343 was created solely to focus on the Halo properties. They will never work anything but Halo

As for the game, I see nothing wrong with it coming out so "soon". We got Anniversary last year, but that was more of a fan service, and not at all anything new. By the time Halo 4 comes out, it'll have been 2 years since the last new Halo mythology game, Reach, came out, and 5 years since you got to play as the Master Chief in Halo 3, which is what excites a lot of people, myself included

343 has some mighty big shoes to fill. They never filled them with Halo Wars, and heck, Bungie didn't even filled them with Reach IMO.

You do know that 343 is headed by the guy who was the main content manager of halo, halo 2, and halo 3 right? And that his sole reason for leaving Bungie was to become the director of the new studio (343 Industries) microsoft put together SPECIFICALLY to carry on the Halo franchise? I don't exactly see it as coincidence that the two games bungie released after he left (ODST & Reach) weren't as good as 2 or 3. I'm sure it's in good hands.

I for one can't wait. I speant literally thousands of hours of my life on halo 3 and can't wait to see if Halo 4 can redeem the series for me. I love me some CoD too but damn did they drop the ball hard as hell with MW3.
