MGS marketing team is insane in their blockbuster ads. The best in the industry, most likely.

Wow I wish this was a Halo movie.

Yes, a Halo movie really needs to be made, but only if they can get a true blockbuster level budget and the right script. Fall of reach would make an excellent first movie i'd think. Or right after it.

Anyhow, Firefight mode in ODST is simply a fucking blast to play. That mode plus three friends to play with equals serious damn fun.

Haha and everyone thought the Brute was CGI.

They previous to this footage already said the pre-production of this (assets, actor) took 2 weeks without filming. I'd like to know how much this Ad cost to make, b/c something like this (visceral, really confined and well tought without much use of CGI) would be perfect for the movie, but yhea, without the Big open scenes of Halo, planets, space it would ruin the halo image people took from the games.

That should be the goal of the single player in Reach, make the fights and battles as hectic and intense as the one in this live action short.

I'd also like to see a Halo game with a more gritty feel, at least for part of the game. Keep those lovely vistas.

nice. But the brute looks ugly. They should make CGI creatures for the enemies. You can still see this unnatural natural look lol

Impressive. Didnt realize how much went into it. I think practical effects on creatures generally look better, same was true here in my opinion. Only when fast or fluid movement is needed should you jump to CG and even then it should still be a mixture. But yeah, I think ill rewatch the finished trailer a couple times. Never player halo3 before but will have to try it soon as i have the capability. (a 360).

About the game

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (8 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
