Nolan North and Troy Baker in same game, two of the most used male voice actors finally in one game lol

Also, Garry Schyman did very good music in Bioshock games, i wonder how he will pull this one off to do a fantasy theme music.

No, not all...unless they lack imagination to do any real combat movelist, sure they can since all they need is animation variety and not enough move inputs.

I bet it's a deflating feeling being a male voice actor, going to auditions and sees Troy Baker and Nolan North auditioning for the same role you're auditioning for.

    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (1 Hour ago)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: i see he had major impact on halo:ce, halo 2, halo 3odst...good sign (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz There are a couple of videos of him flitting about the 343 offices and talking about Halo memorabilia and while it isn't confirmed, I'd be surprised if he isn't on H6. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: Staten along with Marty O'Donnell was a key figure at Bungie and is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft, he joined too late to influence Halo 5, but just in time to start Halo 6. (1 Hour ago)
