Halo Reach short movie

Halo Reach short movie

It has now become quite trendy to promote a game by proposing a short film related to it. Bungie and Microsoft have understood how effective it can be for the fans and the others, so here is one about Halo Reach entitled Hybrid. The game will launch on September 14 on Xbox 360.
Update: The full video is now on.

Video is corrupted or something. Both stream and download stop at the same point. Also, this's suposed to be two videos I think, and this one shows a mixture of two.... me confused

We removed the video for now, hopefully we'll find a good version of it. Thank Microsoft France for this.

Even Microsoft's videos RROD.

tisk. When will kids learn to keep hold of their balloons? Do they think we're made of money?
Commented on 2010-08-24 21:07:20
Especially since Helium reserves won't be around for long, that's one expensive balloon. Naughty little &^*%

That was boring...

Yeh, I figure after the many Live action vids they are gonna roll out, it will all fall in to place. That said, I found the dialogue cliché.

Wait with anticipation for what they have next.
Commented on 2010-08-24 21:14:21
yea... that was pretty rubbish.

They tried too hard to make it all serious poignant, but it just end up looking amateurish and flat.

And the desaturated colour palate doesn't help.

Perhaps, but I personally don't care for that approach. Give me the whole thing so I can lay back, grab some popcorn and enjoy. This way, it just doesn't make sense. Atleast, not to me.

If this was an actual proper (and good) TV series, I'd definitely be interested. I'm always looking for more semi-grounded sci-fi series to watch...

Year 2552 and they still use radio headsets. Wow this is the future :)))

just saw the ending to the game. and aside from the last bit of gamplay you partake in, it was pretty damn epic. even tho i'm not a fan of the halo franchise it gave me goosebumps. definately need to play it now to see how it all came to be. see, good things can come from spoilers. it's on youtube if anyone's interested.
Commented on 2010-08-24 22:31:18
That was boring and in my head had nothing to do with Halo Reach...I want advertising that makes me want to play the game, not wonder if it's even related to it

I shan't be taking up that offer, but good to hear that the ending is fittingly epic.

Good that you like it, but IMO it was as lame as they come.

Yea, this is possibly the worst live action trailer they've done by a long shot. The whole thing has zero impact and will leave the average consumer baffled rather than intrigued. Even the trailer with the guy gettin all the genetic work done on him was better than this, and at least it said something about the game. All this does is play out like some cheesy soap opera.

Bungie are trying to be too high brow here, they dont achieve it, and it would never work in a commercial for a video game base on blowing shit up.

Pretty good stuff, I have to see how it unfolds.
Commented on 2010-08-25 00:21:55
Reminds me a bit of flashbacks in BSG. This can't touch those, though.
I didn't like this video and just like the other guys here it didn't make me wanna play the game either. :/

maybe your confunding some other idiotic space marine shooters with Halo, who has a long detailed story to begin with, fancypants.

I am not sure why there's so much hate towards this video. I actually liked it, a LOT. I think it's a nice way of building hype.
Commented on 2010-08-25 10:41:17
well, it definitely not began on Reach :P
