What happened to the classic Halo theme song?? Do they not own the rights to keep using it? Doesn't feel right without it.

Also I like how that just looks like a giant Samus in ball form

a bit akward, but it seems that it belongs to marty... but why the hell should it? when does a composer have the rights to anything that is done into a production movie/game? And i think that the halo theme doesn't fit that well, and there are themes that were made in the course of the last decade that are as "halo" and don't sound dumb like monks in space.

other that may seem cool in retrospective, was MGS theme... but hearing it now, its a bit outdated.

i dunno, feels like something is missing though, same was the case with MGS. it just isn't the same without it.

Regardless of how you feel about the song Nost it's engrained at this point and symbolizes the franchise. The theme song gets you pumped and excited for each release. It's a big reason why this trailer falls flat

I think this game is going to be good and will sell well, but I don't plan to purchase it. I have grown exceedingly tired of the Halo fanbase that plays online. between halo 2-3 there was a sudden spike of children players with mics and mouths. I'm curious about the story, and will watch the cinematic on youtube when there are online, but I can't purchase this game with confidence in the online community. Halo reach was their last chance for redemption but sadly fell flat.....fell very very flat.

this moronic point sounds so 2007.

And no, it the trailer "feels flat" has nothing to do with the music, no "launch" trailer since H3... even halo 3, is made with or just with the halo theme. The game is going to be The fps goty there is no objections to that going how bad the competition is and how good all the stuff revelead so far, it just had a weak trailer, so? If anyone wants something blood pumping and hype-inducing for release or something... Go see Halo FuD Live Action Episode 3, 4 and 5.

that is the fan jerk(money)fest champ.

doesn't mean it won't be a bad game like all the other CoD. a game made and repeated times and times to sell that perfected formula of carrot on a stick. The worse thing isn't that it sells, its that console gamers have even lesser standards each year, when now the game hasn't a single reason to be excused with the "but its 60 fps game". it's averaga is now in the 40 fps.

Well, atleast in campaign performance, that is. Af If anyone buys it for the mediocre campaign.

Dude don't say that about Halo. They'll lynch you for it.

Halo 4 don't have zombies so Blops 2 wins by default.

:P

Day one!! cant wait! :)

@ Tinks, they do own the rights to all Halo music, but they wanted there own stamp on it, if you listen to the OST there are some fantastic Halo type songs, the one they used for this trailer is not one of them.
Commented on 2012-10-29 23:15:37
I realize they want to own it themselves... but there's also the matter of what you're inheriting and realizing what sells

Brand names sell. Halo 4 will be fine.
Commented on 2012-10-29 23:23:13
Yeah but their trailers still suck ass for the most part haha
Commented on 2012-10-29 23:28:19
this will look and play better then any FPS out there
Commented on 2012-10-30 00:01:02 In reply to Tinks
Sales will be fine trust me... even if the trailer was 1 sec and only had the txt H4 it will sell very well.
