  • Sold my Xbox so I won't be playing, but I am interested into how Halo 4 will shape up. As a huge Halo fan, I hope 343 puts a new edge into the series, but still stays true to what Halo is doing. From what I've seen, it looks remarkably similar to Call of Duty.

    Is it a bad thing? Perhaps not, but I hope 343 makes original changes. Spartan Ops looks wonderful, but killstreaks and exp? Not so much.
  • I go to the last page on the forum and comment on really old articles.

  • i think halo is a pretty cool guy. eh kill aleins and doesnt afraid of anything.
  • My most anticipated game of 2012, (Other Than Transformers Fall of Cybertron) and even greater with the limited edition!
  • Wow. Just wow. Now ive gone into the phase where i will send 343 death threats to get the game out sooner. Im kidding, i think.
  • Can't wait till November 6!
  • I've never touched a Halo game before and I guess it might just be me, but it doesn't look like what people have made it sound like.
  • The wait for November 6 is killing me. I want to play this game now!
  • I still find it odd that this game is coming out Election Day, but I can't wait to get it.
  • I have no doubt that War Games will be great, as usual, but the whole idea of Spartan Ops is brilliant. I can't wait to get my hands on it come November.

  • I WANT IT NOW!!!
  • Ok, I play Halo for Halo, COD for COD, and Battlefield for Battlefield. I do not play Halo/COD/Battlefield to play another game and like The guy who is meh said this is definitely looking like 343 is turning Halo into Halo of Duty. Not very impressed.
  • i need that Keep Calm and Play Halo t-shirt...
  • @The guy who is meh Is it a bad thing Halo is becoming similar to Call of Duty???? PERHAPS YES. If I want to play Call of Duty, I will take the liberty of putting my Call of Duty disc into the tray of my Xbox 360 and PLAY CALL OF DUTY. Halo Reach tried to adapt a few Call of Duty features. Take out the Ranking system, put in a system similar to Call of Duty. Add classes just like Call of Duty. Take out the fans' favorite weapon, replace it with a boring weaker single shot P.O.S. Add Running, Jetpacks, Armor Lock to replace the fair-sided gameplay of Halo with random unpredictable mosh pit anarchy. No, my friend, Halo tried copying Call of Duty once before. And guess what? Halo fans despised it. Halo was best represented in its classic trilogy form. If 343 knows what's best for the series- they will respect the roots and the simplicity of the original Halo and they will REMOVE many or all of the features that were in Reach. Unfortunately, that's not what I'm seeing.
  • I want that guy's shirt at the end of the video!

  • I don't understand the hype for Halo. Maybe it's only good for the people who played it all those years ago but I own Anniversary and have no desire to touch it. Maybe Halo was good in its time but it doesn't really hold up well for me when compared to other shooters.
  • I honestly don't see a thing in that video that looks remotely innovative. You could say Spartan Ops, but we all know that it is just a free version of Spec Ops with a connected story.
  • It might be quite the contest to see what game you could think of that wouldn't be good for multi-player.

  • Really excited for the multiplayer changes. Looks like a lot of fun, and Spartan Ops sounds like a great idea.

  • I get that they're trying to make Halo 4 multiplayer "accessible" for new players, but I really don't like the direction they're taking it. Halo multiplayer was not a "pick-up-and-play" experience. You didn't start doing awesome after 10 games. You had to actually play and learn about the maps, the abilities, weapon spawns. It took time, but you taught yourself how to play better.

    Back when I first got Halo 3, I remember a matchmaking playlist that was only open for players under some low rank. It was a great way for new players to get acquainted with the game, while experienced players could skip it if they wanted. It created accessibility without sacrificing any of the more competitive elements.

    I'm still watching Halo 4 closely, but right now, it looks a lot like a futuristic Call of Duty. That's not necessarily bad, but if I wanted to play Call of Duty, I'd just pull it off my shelf right now.
