Halo Wars is at the party too

Halo Wars is at the party too

No reason why Halo Wars wouldn't be of the 5 years of Halo birthday party, and so here is a brand new image, and a strange one at that. It clearly looks like an artwork, but there is also some aliasing...

hahaha I agree. Most gamers will buy this because it got something to do with the Halo universe and got Halo in the title, and they arent even RTS gamers hahaha, thats why it is funny.

Me I wont buy it. Turn-based, RTS, puzzle, sports, racing....keep them away from me!
hack n slash, shooters, action/adventure...bring it on!

Doesnt the front part of these vehicles look like master chiefs helm? =P

I was thinking the aircraft look kinda (not completely) like Klingon warbirds.

looks awful
Commented on 2006-11-16 03:53:16
For me, its more than just Halo name on it.
Really love the Team behind Age of Empire 3 (and the expansion).
Have been playing that game since it had released. So Iam pretty sure they will do a great job.

Can't wait to see how this turns out. Wonder what the powers are going to be.

looks like a B2
Commented on 2006-11-16 09:35:09

besides the jaggies, there are other elements that suggest the ship is actually rendered.
The distortion effect on the engine exhausts looks very rendered to me...
Commented on 2006-11-16 09:46:41
render whit aliasing?
Commented on 2006-11-16 10:06:41
Looks "okay"?
What do you people expect from a big rts?
You cant have characters like Gears of war in those.

RTS'ses is the BEST genre, im glad more are coming to the 360.
Commented on 2006-11-16 10:47:44
I'd be more excited by the fact it's an RTS made by Ensemble Studios and it's based upon the Halo universe. That's kind of Win Win in my eyes.

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (11 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (14 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (15 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (16 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (17 minutes ago)
