Halo 3 Video Documentary released

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The documentary is entitled Et Tu Brute? Which I'm about 90% certain is a reference to a Shakespeare play but it's been a while since I was in a hardcore AP English class lol, at this point it may as well be a Borat play and I wouldn't be able to tell.

Anyways it's 7 minutes long and focuses mainly on the Brutes in Halo 3.

Bungie is making a big deal of this so I will reiterate here, the graphics you see are placeholder and are many months old, the current build looks much nicer and the final Halo 3 release will break your jaw with prettiness.

Read about it here: http://www.bungie.net/News/TopStory.aspx?cid=9340

See it in HD here: http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?fs=1&id=2606

EDIT: I just watched it and I have to say it's looking good so far, Bungie talks a lot about how they are working to make Halo 3 a ton more fun to play than Halo 2 and there is plenty of footage with the final lighting in place to make it really worth it to watch but as I said, most of it is non-final and a lot of the textures and lighting are borrowed from Halo 2 for now.

Yea, I watched it yesterday.

And It looks.... The same, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but with nexgen out and Halo 3 being for XBOX 360, I don't see how they couldn't make the graphics better. Looks like all they did was add HDR.

But its the first video so I gotta be patient.

lol lightsource, I said it and Bungie has said it numerous times, it looks the same because it is the same, for now they are finishing all the gameplay before they implement their sexy new graphics so just you wait and see. Just think, Gears of War has been out for a month or two already, Halo 3 won't be out for another year, Halo 3 will look a ton better than Gears of War which is already a stunning game.

Yeah, you're right. "Et Tu Brute" means "You too, Brutus" which is from Shakespeare.

I'm downloading the video right now so can't comment yet.

Edit: Looks pretty good.

Double Edit:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Et_tu,_Brute%3F

Quote:
"Et tu, Brute?" were, according to legend, the last words of Julius Caesar. In English, the sentence means "You too, Brutus?" or "Even you, Brutus?". It is sometimes translated word-for-word as "And you, Brutus?", but this translation is best avoided, as it can be misleading. The word Brute is pronounced in two syllables, approximately (IPA) [ˈbruːte]; it is sometimes spelled Brutè or Brutë to clarify this. The quotation is widely used in Western culture as the epitome of betrayal.

Yeah I knew what it meant but wasn't sure if it was from Shakespeare, not that it's relevant to the topic .
