Those weaponry-trailers are the worst trailers that happened to Halo since Halo. (Especially with whatever music smacked on them)

I am totally not looking forward to the probably upcoming Forerunner-Weaponry trailer, although I can not wait for the game itself.

Can you explain why?

Because we already know the weapons; the editing is terrible and random; that sort of music has NOTHING to with Halo (or better put: had nothing to do with Halo until those trailers).

P.S. I want to hear the weapon sounds not any (no matter what) sort of music.

Check the Xbox site later for the Trailer version with just the weapon sounds, not a fan of the wub wub either. Still it looks fracking awesome :)

Sounds like the old trailers for Starbreeze's game Syndicate.

These weapons trailers have indeed been fail. Dubstep? Really? I mean, it suited the Syndicate trailers, but this is Halo 4. It should have Halo 4 music (which judging from available samples is quite good).

I agree with the music. But the actual gameplay footage, a short demonstration of each weapon, was totally ok IMO.

is the music, don't flame me cos maybe it isn't, from the Halo 4 "official remix" soundtrack.. some bits sound like they could be, although I only heard what they gave samples of on the official site. I agree that it's not Halo campaign style music (which I've always loved) but WubWub music is better than Euro Hardcore BangBangBangBangBangBangBang....imo ;)

Like most of the ideas for the game, 343 borrows ideas for their trailers too.

@Masa: all devs borrow ideas of each other as did Bungie.

Yeah they should have just left the music out. Those sound effects are substantially better than the route they went.
Although I don't know how much I need a narrator describing all my kills to me. Guess I'm glad I don't have to hear a metal guitar riff after every kill though

Choices like this continue to make you question their taste.
Halo is a brand that Bungie carefully crafted and marketed since its inception

PS- new elite symbol looks pretty shite, and purple lines don't make things look any cooler

They really TRON'd this thing up.. but I think neon does make shit look cooler.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not like those people working on this imaginary game aren't working on other real games instead anyway. Nothing is lost. (9 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I don't prefer to have "nothing" because I bother to recognize Valve's actual game development. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX "I don't care who develops it" is a really weird thing for a person who cares about games to say. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I understand that thought process in today's highly branded market. Gotta have that franchise name attached to a product to care about it. (11 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: No, I prefer creators keep their content to themselves instead of farming it out to third parties because it's a terrible way to make video games. (12 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I love games/franchises, as long as the developers do a great job, quite honestly I don't give a flying fuck who develops it. A different team could even do a much better job - rare, but happens. (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Preferring to have nothing to everyone, rather than something potentially great for many people is entitlement alright. And of the most stupid kind even. (45 minutes ago)
