Really impressed, I like the environments, the enemies are interesting and challenging. The weapons look right, they seem to have their own unique style. I'm very impressed overall with the HUD, I like the cinematic feel, they implemented the way I like it. Master chief is still a boss, he looks good. I really like this game so far. Too bad there's no firefight

I say they should of not added the skull.... Oh, and I thought they made Cortana look pretty in Halo 4.... But know.... She just looks..... uuuhh.... for that part anyway. She might still look pretty in the rest of the game.

No doubt man. That stupid skull, why would a forerunner or any alien species have a human skull underneath it's face plate, i dont get what they are doing with that...

and the other forerunner things, like those sentinel-like things that throw grenades, why the hell so they all have a little head/face on them?! if you look at other pictures of them up close theres a little face. this isn't gundam/transformers where every thing needs a humanoid face! haha Sorry... rant..

I have a question, from the video/ why does it appear that those forerunner creatures bleed yellow while they are not organic as cortana said?

Robots don't look forerunner at all.
Rampant Cortana looks creepy as hell. I hope they handle this part of the storyline well :/
Still don't like MC's shoulder pads.

did u see those ODST's??? OMFG they look like CMT's odst...
also the BR firing sound, sounds uhh how do i put this, bass-y??? xD

why'd u say they're forerunner creatures? are those things somehow being mind-controlled by precursors???

and, there are blue and yellow colors for those things, should i speculate that, blue are still forerunner-controlled and helps defending humans? O_o hope this is not a spoiler alert. just curious

I don't know. Because i'm sure 343 know that most Forerunner lights and their style is blue. So the orange color could indicate out of control AI? Or something like that.. Dunno.

Look at the skull, its humanoid, but not, it has four nostrils, and an abnormally shaped head, it looks human but not.

The flying things dont have faces, just a single round light in the center, and they also take the grenades you throw at them and throw them back at you which is a very innovative gameplay shift, as well as the general movement changes to the enemies.

Ive just noticed Reach banshee. they should have made old style one...


Check the site the other day and it appears it's not 100% Reach Banshee. Though I like the Reach Banshee and the Halo 4 one since they are more aerodynamic looking. Anyway was trying to find the picture to post here but instead found some new weapons!!

FOUND IT

Some info on Infinity War Games and Spartan Ops. The integration actually looks pretty cool. Looks like this actually might have replay value.

I'm still pretty pissed that Elites are your enemy's again. What if we see The Arbiter or the Shipmaster? I hope we'll get a good reason.

Herp Derp, its already pretty much been confirmed that the covenant you fight are pirates or not really affiliated with what we knew as the covenant in the old games. Its also pretty easy to imagine that there could be covenant who didnt get the memo about the war being over xP Considering there are millions of them spread across a galaxy...

Japanese holdouts were being discovered well into the '70s, many of them never realizing (or refusing to believe) the war had ended thirty years prior. Halo 4 takes place only five years after the collapse of an empire that spanned galaxies. I'd imagine there would be quite a few holdouts.

I miss the arbiter and the shipmaster. ESPECIALLY THE FLOOD!!!

Halo 4 doesn't amuse me anymore if they are gone.

Also cortana quoted :
"But you did it. Truth and the Covenant...the Flood. It's finished."
Cortana

The covenant is gone, But why is the covenant still in halo 4? Also in the gameplay MasterChief didn't react when he saw the elites as enemies again.

Also where is lord hood!?

THE FAQ HALO 4 HAVE MANY THINGS TO EXPLAIN RIGHT NOW!!!


Did you read the post right above yours? Also, the entire campaign preview we got takes place a ways into the campaign, I guarantee that the game will explain to you why the covenant are back, and in turn will explain why they don't surprise the chief.

Oh my god, I hate the design of the vehicles from reach. Now they reach-fed the halo 4 banshee...


Exactly what I was thinking...
I remember when Reach came out, and I saw those god awful banshees I asked wtf happened. I was told that they were an earlier variant than the ones in Halo 3, so I thought that was a good enough reason...
But then I see them in Halo anniversary and it kind of pissed me off lol. Now I see these Halo Rea... I mean Halo 4 banshees and I'm all like WTF GUYS!?

Whatever, maybe the pirate covenant only have access to old models?

Think you guys just have a case of "I hate change", new design is much more aerodynamic and stable looking.

Only thing I didn't like was the image I found with the weird arms on the cannons and thrusters.

Not true, I love change, i love what ive been seeing from Halo 4 so far. If anything i think that it's lacking change! haha.
I just never really liked the fat banshee, even though it is a blast to fly. :P
And yes it does look more aerodynamic, i like how the wings bend and all, but i think it would of been cool to see a different banshee model, like a new updated looking one or some sort of hybrid from the reach ideas and halo 3 ideas.
Thats what i was expecting from halo 4, but it seems like they're using alot of things from reach so far

Reach is the art style, the Banshee in Reach seems to have been one of those issues where the internet freaks out about it's looks and assumes it has to do with the story when in Reality it's just the artists getting more to play with.

This is similar to the Halo 3 nonsense when they originally showed the Master Chief and his gloves were different so *gasp* "he had to be in a new suit of armor"! haha

The Halo community is ridiculously diehard and think that Halo was this greatly mapped out adventure, but in reality Bungie had no idea what they were making when they started working on Halo 1. It just happened to be awesome!

I love how all the pictures you posted in your first post, is really the best pics. If you the infinity trailer, in one point in the vidoe, its has unlockable weapons through battling in the "War Games". Which seen really fimilar and wonder where it can from?Hmm.. One of biggest question is why are we fighting the convenants still? We beat their ass in Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3:ODST, and Halo 3. I mean we destryoyed them, killed their leaders, basically destroyed their capital city after the flood that it over. Also, why are we fighting the elites now? We made alliance with them to kill the convenants.

WOW. Thats a lame ass excuse to countine the story line. Pirates really? These are not the convenants, these are pirates, that branch off of the convenants like herectic in Halo 2. 343, way to pull a lame ass reason. I hope they get rid of the unlockable weapons system because, I don't want people spawning with a sniper rifle every match possible.

Are you really that stupid? Or are you trolling. The exact scenario that could easily be used to explain why there are still covenant for the MC to fight, is something that has happened in real life. Soldiers of a certain army who are never told the war is over, it happened with Japanese soldiers in World War 2, as well as Germans, and Koreans as well.

Also, if you will remember correctly, the first contact that any humans had with the covenant was with pirates, Jackal pirates to be exact.

False. The first contact with convenants was a convenant's ship attacking a human's planets. Just clearing that up for you :). In Halo 2, after Regret's death, Mecry and Truth plotted to kill off the elites and their allies(but grunts and hunter end up going with the convenants.) The convenants as whole, not as groups of missing capital ships, is dead. Plus, the group, we see has elites and grunts which, means this happened before the break in Halo 2, which is a lot of years behind Halo 3. If you are going to back yourself fully and explain everything then go ahead. But I was simply stating my opinion in the matter. I don't want to angry the master of this site.
Getting back on topic. Has it been confirmed that it will have firefight, forge and threater yet?
