Haven't seen any other posts about this soo...

On November 15th this year, the 10th anniversary of the release of halo combat evolvedd<3, 343 industries will be releasing a graphical update for the game on the 360, yes i know, the 360:'''(. No need to argue over weather backing up and running it over again is just another way to make money, because all top of the line fps(besides halo custom) are about money regardless. I just want your thoughts on the game itself and not the intentions behind making it.

http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/intel/titles/haloanniversary

One of the buttons on the controller will be selected to humiliate all of the old bungie/gearbox employees by switching from the reach(rather boxy looking)graphics, to the top of line majestical, beautious, and original halo pc graphics<333. I myself, am not one to care about graphics, im the kind that would rather play minecraft then crysis..none the less, this is my main reason for buying.

There will be 2 person co-op availible and the multiplayer will be halo reach, with seven original maps selected to be carried over into this new game.

Thoughts? rants?
Anyone?

who knows what happened to the link posting?

My thoughts:
We should have done this ourselves, but hey, we tried with campaign mods.
Rants:
Too many HCEA topics.

I know we've had at least two others in the past. They're kind of old now. Perhaps it's just because I've seen them come and go that this HCEA stuff is kind of getting old to me.
Continue, I guess...

opinions: It looks cool, if I get a job i'll buy it, graphics are amazing.

rants: this is the 4th or 5th topic i've seen on this game.

I just wish they did more with it. Retaining the original feel makes no sense when you can buy the original game for less money. I want Halo: CE with vehicle boarding, improved AI, physics and all the other goodies added in later versions. They should have used a next-gen engine instead of the original. (Obviously this is my opinion. I thought it was redundant to add, but people get touchy when you don't explicitly say so.)

Yeah I thought same about this..but then again things like hijack could ruin the make of the original campaign maps where maybe in a30 you could hijack the banshee and then they would have to add more detail to the top of the map, changing the plot itself possibly..

Defeats the purpose of a remake that they said is supposed to feel and play like the original halo 1 controls.

In my own opinion the game should be more along the lines of $30 or $25.

What I'm saying is I disagree with their decision to make it feel and play exactly like the original game. Making more than cosmetic changes doesn't defeat the purpose of a remake.

But THEY WANT IT FOR THE HALO VETERANS! THEY WANT THE SAME GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE, BUT WITH A NEW FEEL! They are making it, so ti doesn't lose anything from the original game, except MAYBE a few maps, but MAYBE those maps can be made in Forge World anyway, so MAYBE thats why they wqon't add them.

Plus, its what they're doign with it. If you've seen their vids, they want it to play EXACTLY the same.

I am looking foward to all of those new textures. Gawd, the flood will be awesome. So will 343 Spark.

I'm looking foward to all aspects of the Anniversary.

Personally, I want them to scratch the project and focus on Halo 4. We are already capable of what they're doing now and CMT is already doing it. Honestly, why would you want to pay money for something that CMT will release for free? Besides, they aren't touching the gameplay at all with sucks, CMT however is adding custom BSP's, hijacking, and actually putting brutes in as their own character and not just stocky upgrades to the elites.

Well, that would be a great idea, but the only thing is, it's too late.

Since when are we capable of producing the graphics of the Anniversary?

Okay guys look, I'm not sucking up to CMT whatsoever. I'm stating the truth. CMT has some of the BEST halo modders we've known and with OS we can now reach similar graphics to CEA. The hatred to me? I honestly don't care what you guys think of me. To me, listening to someone and believing their lies means I am becoming worse at what I am. That is why I never give up. If someone thinks I can't do something, I set out to prove them wrong or correct myself trying.

I am not perfect, nobody is, so don't give me crap about not be able to model to your "polished" expectations.

Oh and Hydrogen, next time you try to convince me to give up modelling, it isn't going to work. Don't attack me through PM's either. I am here to prove that anyone can do ANYTHING if they have enough willpower. If you want to know a little bit about my country's war history then I'll tell you.

In the Vietnam war, only 521 Australians died compared to the 58,196 names that have been listed on the Vietnam wall.

In the current Korean war, Australia has only lost 26 men, compared to the 1000+ lost from America.

Now, I want you guys to ask yourselves this.
Can you honestly just start fresh with me? Look at things differently to how I do them?

I used to hate hunter, now he is the one I aspire to be.
I used to hate Hydrogen, but he has decent help for me, occasionally.
I used to hate XlzQwerty1, yet I was able to get over it.

You guys can choose to do whatever you want, I honestly do not care, but I ask you can you just start from a fresh perspective of my work?


even with open sauce CMT will not be able to reach the level cea has with detail in models.

CMT can't remove all tag limits and I doubt they're going to bother remodelling everything. There's no way SPV3's graphics are gonna match Anniversary. Then again though, why should we care? SPV3's going to be more fun than Anniversary. Stop saying it'll have as good graphics, and mention the fact it's not the original campaign. -.-

Personally I find that no remake could beat Halo CE's golden experience. But since anniversary is the same thing but with upped graphics, I find that it's improved. Also the terminals reveal the background plot of the new Halo trilogy coming out later.

I like the idea of keeping all the game-play mechanics from the original with a graphics engine over it. TBO, I would be afraid of them ruining the game if they re-made everything.

Considering that a non-professional team with few members(CMT) can remake the campaign fairly well, I don't think you should worry about a team as well funded as 343 ruining the game.

The well funded part is what scares me. When I said ruining, I meant changing gameplay mechanics, such as adding features from Reach.
