I never noticed Cortana's arm around the Chief, I always saw it as just the two of them lined up together. Interesting.

I love the Halo 3 lithograph which focuses on the relationship between Cortana and Master Chief.

Questions to Cyren:
1) WHere the fuck is your PM?
2) The e-sport scene of Halo is dying because of missing support by MLG, right? No alternatives?

I know SWAT and Snipers were ranked in Halo 3, but I always felt that they should be social.

12 would be better. We do not need Living Dead, needs special variants, not stock maps. Oh and definetly needs custom game types, not the default shit we were offered in Halo 3 and Reach.

Would Team Hardcore be something with limited lives? Would love such gametype.
EDIT i'd like Social SWAT as well, if Halo 4's SWAT feels more or less like Halo 3's, it'd be fun to play with my friend (guest).

Team Deathmatch (TDM) (12 players)
Mercenary (MERC) (12 players)
Free-for-All (FFA) (8 players, smaller maps)
Domination (DOM) (12 players)
Ground War (GW) (18 players, larger maps)
Demolition (DEMO) (12 players)
Sabotage (SAB) (12 players)
Headquarters (HQ) (12 players)
Capture the Flag (CTF) (12 players)
Search and Destroy (SnD) (12 players)
Team Tactical (TEAM TAC) (12 players)

Barebones:

Pure (No Perks, Killstreaks, Attachments, Equipment, or Contracts) (12 players)
Classic (Killstreaks at 3, 5 and 7) (12 players)
Team Tactical (Pure version with mixed bag of objective modes) (12 players)

Hardcore:

Team Deathmatch (TDM) (12 players)
Search and Destroy (SnD) (12 players)
Headquarters (HQ) (12 players)
Free-for-All (FFA) (8 players)

How about they just bring BTB back to the Halo 3 glory days

Teams of 8 should match other teams of 8. CTF, Assault, Slayer. Defined bases, not undefined play spaces (Spire, Boneyard, etc).

Well I can agree that pre-Heavies H3 BTB was better than Reach BTB, but I would say Halo 2 BTB were the glory days.

Standoff CTF games could go the entire 15 minutes without a single cap. Nail biters. BTB in Reach is now yuks and no one gives a crap.

As i said, i cannot say anything about that.
Making good BTB for Halo 4 shouldn't be hard:
Good large maps, no medium sized maps for BTB (that one map in Reach whose name i don't remember, starts with B?, not Boneyard though it is shit as well)
BR/comparable weapon starts
No Heavies
No unbalanced vehicles
No stupid game modes, just Slayer, CTF (neutral?, two Flag, one Flag?) and Assault (Neutral, two Bomb?, one Bomb?)
