That was lame in comparison to Spartan Locke and red team trailer. I expected better. Looks like someone is downplaying MC.

Really?

Reminded me off that kick ass scenr from the first Star Trek reboot when Kirk, Spock, and Sulu space jumped on Vulcan.

Looked pretty bad ass to me.

Honestly the Locke scene is pretty over the top. I don't mind if the MC is a bit more grounded

I like the contrast of both teams. While Locke Squad is over the top, Chief Squad is precision based.

Though...

I don't know how much precision can be done from that distance with a Shotgun, Fred.

Look pretty damn good 343! Music, tone, graphics was all impressive.

Oh hell! Why did I just watch that? Okay NO-MORE after this!

Once again it looks like "adults" are not Halo's target audience if you know what I mean...

Btw: Halo looks like Destiny with different models..just saying

After all there's nothing to hype here -___-

The Team Osiris trailer, comes off a lot like kids getting to play with new toys on Christmas morning - they try out all the features, all the bells, and all the whistles.

Where the Blue Team trailer practically screams, "we've been doing this shit for more than 30 fucking years. We're experts at killin', and don't waste time with flashy moves and all that jumping around nonsense, if we don't have to."


And that is something else to think about. Master Chief and the members of Blue Team were fighting the Covenant, before anyone on Team Osiris was even born.

Please, don't call this movie "Star Trek." I beg you.

This actually looked like it was running in real-time. I enjoyed this one much more.

I think She (Kelly has the shotgun) is just having it ready. I don't think I saw his actually firing it when the others do. If true, that's a nice attention to detail.

found out what the shaking was-

"What you're actually seeing there is a rendering problem due to lack of precision.

It's certainly not something intended by the developers.

The way you can tell that it's an error and not by design is because different parts of his hand are shaking in completely different ways. It's not like his whole thumb is shaking as a single digit, but the surface of the thumb is vibrating chaotically.

This kind of error is seen when the game attempts to render objects too small, or at too great a distance.

Numbers used in computer programming have a fixed amount of precision. Even when they have a huge range of possible values. An easy way to think about it is to try to describe something's position using a 5 digit number. You can say something's position is 4,134 or 502 or 74,302. But if something is in the middle of two of those numbers, you have to round to the nearest number you have. You might choose 16,728 or 16,729 because you don't have enough digits to say 16,728.5.

So when the game hits the limits of it's rendering precision, pieces of the game (Chief's hand's vertices) might jump chaotically between the two closest numbers they can be represented by.

This only happens when the game's spatial resolution is pushed to its limits, which happens with very small or very large objects."

Definitely in-game. i would have liked to see some metal shine on the Spartans, oh well. Lighting looks good no doubt and the detail too! Oh, and i think i was correct, the cut-scenes will be 1080p 30fps, to match the CGI. this trailer is definitely 30fps.

Yeah dude, wtf was that. It was kind of childish.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (50 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (51 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Trust me though, the phone camera photos are pretty representatitve of how they look here. (5 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yeah my bad. But i fixed it: [url] (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: That's not a fair comparison. You show an absolute in-game compared to a photo of a TV screen. If I take a picture of my tv... (7 Hours ago)
