Itagaki...i expected more from you.

I wish it was futuristic because thats how I prefer my shooters, but another shooter?
Well I cant complain on that considering its not another military war shooter.

The whole Grindhouse-modern realistic-kill bill stuff isnt my type.

But I am willing to wait and see much more, especially if I see more of the hack and slash part, even if its little, Itagaki is a master of doing this.

hmmm. i'm getting some major "wet" vibes. which isnt a good thing AT ALL. i'm not a fan of itagaki in anyway due to the games he's responsible for. seems this new game isnt going to change that much.

Agreed. That clunky faux-Tarantino nonsense is NOT the kind of comparison you want to draw. Like Wet, it'll depend on how good the combat and controls are.

Also, he's no business talking about Dead or Alive and epic masterpieces right next to each other. XD

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (1 minute ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
