The Cortana I know has two huge crescent moons with a butterfly tramp stamp. I dig that. The flat mom jeans look in that H4 pic has got to go.

I don't agree with kylej much, but when I do, it's about the backside of an imaginary, imaginary person.

Yeah, I agree, the way info has come out has been very awkward and haphazard IMO, things defintely could and should have been more clear. I hope we get more info in the future in a more solid manner, even say if we get something like a MP trailer that kinda lets us see the actions in motion, like the Reach MP beta trailer.

Another nice quote from that article:

343 is already giving Halo 4 the largest levels the series has ever seen, the most feature-intense multiplayer yet, and a new online co-op campaign in Spartan Ops--not to mention richer sound and visuals.

also

"We are still pushing more and more of the graphics. We had one guy at the showcase who thought this was the next-gen preview. I wouldn't go that far, but it does look good. There is still more and more to be squeezed out of the box," said O'Connor

Lol, wasn't that the guy from gaf who posted in the spring showcase thread (citing his reactions from when he saw the game at the showcase)? None the less, the game does look stunning.

I'm not seeing the awesomeness from that screen. Am I missing something? It looks nice and I like the artistic style, but not omg this will be the best game ever, nice. I mean, cortana looks like a piece of plastic. I guess my reaction is more of a result of everyone else freaking out about the screen. I'm not seeing the wow factor, though.

Ugh, these changes for matchmaking are horrendous. Even Reach had me more excited than this, which is really scary. Let me say that again. Reach had me more more excited than this. Sure, I'll wait until we get to see the game for ourselves, but this is just absurd. Devs have taken too many shits on Halo since Combat Evolved, and that's where we're at. Frankie and David can continue to try and do damage control, but there is nothing to control. They're making a different game, which is not really rectifiable, and this what they chose and wanted to do. Now shall we dispense with the bull?

I'm done with my rant, and maybe they'll surprise me in the end, but 343's direction for matchmaking is a straight up train wreck from my current vantage point. please surprise me :(

Not true. Well, kind of. It depends. "Largest" can refer to many different things. Speaking strictly of encounters, Halo 3 is far larger than Halo 1 and Halo 2.

However, leading up to Reach's release, Marcus Lehto said in the ViDoc that Reach would have "bigger battles," but we never got anywhere close to the size of Halo 3.

I'm confused.

What happens after the season ends? And I thought they said a couple month's worth of content? If the content ends after a couple of weeks and they *might* make more for DLC, then... the mode will stay as is until that happens, unaltered? Is each "mission" comparable to a new Firefight map?

I'm expecting mini-missions that will include Firefight-like scenarios. They'll be released on a weekly basis, and once released we can go back and play them any time. I'd be surprised if they lasted only a few weeks, though. I'm expecting at least three months of content.

-Promethean Vision isn't game breaking (very limited use)
-Default controls: Sprint is thumbstick and crouch is B
-Plasma pistol is powerful
-Movement is smooth
-DMR is a good ranged weapon, but is harder to use against a BR user at a closer range.
-New slots that allow for regen/more ammo though no details besides that.

Kind of confused on the whole bloom thing.

I guess the DMR has really predictable bloom and the BR has kickback.
