GC: Halo Reach presentation

GC: Halo Reach presentation

We had the surprise yesterday to get a small semi public presentation of the beginning of Halo Reach at Microsoft's booth. We filmed as best as we would since we didn't prepare for this, so this video quality isn't too good. Still better than nothing :)

Well, it's pretty much the first campaign trailer, so you're not missing much.

Fantastic, the look of the game. I love how you don't start the game by shooting and slice shit up like other mindless space marine shooters.

This is sooo AWSOME !!!

@java4ever btw what do you mean by "mindless space marine shooters " ?
" you better not dare to speak blasphemy against our loved Godemperor "

The first time since Halo Evolved that I'm excited for a new Halo. I hope the campaign will be longer than that of Halo 3.

Isn't that the new trend... bald space marine?

by the way, Halo 3 already had some great looking interior scenes involving "not-human" characters,

but lacked very much in all other scenes, wich they ramped up with the new human models.
What makes it really better are the cutscenes with skyboxes aren't just some rushed matte paintings like this,

and now has some real depth. Very Avatarish.

I hate myself for watching this, but love the fact that it's looking top class

Halo 3, average, but co-op was two thumbs up
Reach, looking epic, co-op potentially three thumbs up ;?)

About the game

What's up?
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog It’s gameplay is objectively worse. As are it’s quests, narrative and lore. Skyrim was shit. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: ones broken, one isn’t. That’s all there really is to it. For all your whining about shit combat in Witcher, i don’t really see how you could possibly give elders scrolls a pass? (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth "The updated GameWorks SDK, coming soon, includes ray-traced area shadows and ray-traced glossy reflections.". and this is what they say will be in a game this year. Not full, pure, 100% raytracer. (3 Hours ago)
