The lights are on
As the co-creator of NBA Street and co-founder of Propaganda Games, Josh Holmes may sound like an odd choice for the creative director of Halo 4. Starting out testing sports games at EA (click here to see this bonus video where he talks about his worst day in the industry), Josh is a 15-year veteran of the gaming industry and he has worshipped Halo for 10 of those years. We asked him to share his first memories of playing Halo: Combat Evolved, what he sees as the pillars of the Halo series, and what changes he would like to make to the formula. Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Knock it out the park
"Reserved Parking: Chief of the Week"
Me: I must have that sign!!! *Runs to the 343 HQ, rips sign off metal post, hangs up in bedroom*
looks good got my magazine today and tore it open
I can't wait for Halo 4 and the return of John-117 and Cortana. They are with out a doubt my favorite two characters in the Halo universe.
That was one of my problems with the Halo games, they lacked any sense of character development for Master Chief. I'm glad 343 is aiming for a more character driven story in Halo 4.
What changes would you like to make to the Halo series, sir?
Well we want to make Halo of Dut--I mean Halo 4 a fun shooter
Well this could go either very right or very wrong.
I'm optimistic. I mean the guy has tribal ink on his bicep for crying out loud!
To me, that says he's extreme, but he means business. XD
Im looking forward to Halo 4. I really hope this re-energizes the series
I am finally starting to come around on this game. I really love Halo, and I think this is looking good.
Forge? Still around? Or has the environment changing UNSC Infinity taken its place?
A nice journalistic piece. I was concerned about Halo 4 but this video has me pretty excited.
So, it looks like they are back in Bungie's original facility in Kirkland, Wa. I hope this game is going to be great. The artists they have working there obviously have a passion for Halo. Beautiful artwork.
Look I agree with a lot of people here who prefer to have everyone start with the same weapon in multiplayer, but do you guys really think that they won't have a game mode that will be exactly that? 343i has a hard job right now: they have to keep the multiplayer fresh while at the same time appealing to a modern audience as well as to the oldschool Halo community. That being said, yes, they will have a game mode that will play with classes (which I suspect won't even be remotely like Call of Duty) but they will more than certainly include a classic mode (no abilites, no classes, etc) that will play EXACTLY like old games. This company isn't stupid people. They'll bring back old modes like SWAT, MLG, etc. And how do I know this? Well its called common sense.
