E3: Halo 3 presentation... sound only

E3: Halo 3 presentation... sound only

As you may know, most of the Microsoft presentations were unable to shoot. Halo 3 was no exception, which explains why the only thing we can offer you is this weird experience: live the Halo 3 presentation with your ears, and stare at Frankie "sexy beast" O'Connor, litteraly hypnotized by his own game. The demo starts as Master Chief and his squad progress in a tropical forest, and arrive at a sleepy Grunt camp...

LOL...anyway, where is gamersyde preview on Halo 3 campaign?

Wow that was.. interesting.

Bungie concentrates on finishing the product with style, not creating overly polished demos for some snot nosed brats to whine about.

Snoopers are you kidding? LOL!

Oh well, we Halo fans have to take what we're given. Here's to hoping that the Earth will spin quickly for the next 10 weeks.

It's hilarious listening to Grunts make such a fuss over getting killed.

It sounds incredible, everyone watching seems to be in awe.

So what do you think they're showing off in the video exactly?
Commented on 2007-07-15 02:10:30
i think they showed a campaign video not to show anything off, but because if they hadnt, people would be very worried at this stage

Private john you are the man I loved that gears of war video, wow amazing job..

and yeah what gives on not showing nothing from the halo 3, listening without seeing is like Taking a Porsche for a test drive and not driving but instead watching the dealer drive it. Come on that was brutal!

Well they obviously played a demo. They played a trailer during the conference and showed a demo behind closed doors, just like that game which the supposed snot nosed brats are getting excited about. :P

But I digress! It's Halo and I'll buy it in a heartbeat even if we got to see way less of it that I would've liked this E3. Would've been nice to get right pumped up for it, which I thought the last E3 trailer did a better job of doing. "This is the way the world ends" and so forth.

Halo 1 revisited
Amen! You saying that made me realise how much I want that to be the case with this entire game. Not in a deja vu way but in a joyful, surprises, awe and charm way.

Marty wasn't kidding when he said they were saving his job for last in the Documentary vid after E3 :)

Give em hell marty lol.

I think Frankie blinked 8 times in 9 minutes. Someone counted more? ^^

Sounds great but I'm more interested in the soundtrack rather than cool mg fire.
Commented on 2007-07-15 04:48:24
Yeah I hope he does. The one thing that dissapointed me most about the E3 trailer was the music. The music for last years trailer was phenomenal. Those first chords gave me goosebumps.
Commented on 2007-07-15 07:22:37
I wish they show the demo, cant wait still 73 days to go until Halo 3 release.
Commented on 2007-07-15 08:40:28
awesome! even this excites me hahaha!!
Commented on 2007-07-15 09:07:58
Only sound but I don't give a damn. You guys did your best and I respect that. Great job guys.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (21 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (22 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (24 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (25 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (27 minutes ago)
