I thought I was done with halo, I had bought every halo game at launch and played them all like hell. But 4 has just never interested me. This, however, changes everything.

Yeah, not that I really have anything against the genre, but it absolutely does not fit with Halo.

For what it's worth, the music from these trailers are remixed versions of songs from the game's score.

The coolest thing about Valhalla was the water physics, and how they dragged bodies, weapons, and debris downhill.

If this isn't recreated in this, Halo 4 can fuck off.

Haha, not really, but kind of.

Good choice for a remake. Valhalla is a great map.

I'm not sure what to think about the Mantis. I guess it's OK unless it ends up ruining everything. (As in, becoming the central focus of every map in which it's featured.) It looks like a fun vehicle to control, at least, and I love how it can teabag. No doubt we'll see it wreak havoc in plenty of BTB videos.

Hopefully we'll get a bit of (not too much) Mantis-enabled Ghost crushing action in the campaign. I predict it will be most at home in Spartan Ops though.

They screwed up the encoding or something. That video is super framey. Drove me nuts when they were just panning up the structures and the motion was catching ever few seconds.

The Mantis walking animation creeps me out a little. I prefer my mechs stompy. But I do love Valhalla. Probably my favourite map from 3. Hopefully it isn't broken in 4's multiplayer.

I think the new minimum team size in Halo 4 has been bumped up from 4v4 to 5v5, so that may make a difference. I personally think Valhalla is a bit too small for 8v8.

It's back. I saw it in a video of Dominion mode on YouTube. I have no idea how effective it is, except that it's still a one-hit kill on infantry.

Guy in the gameplay vid says it takes two laser shots to take down a Mantis

Would love for this to come to PC.

Hate to miss out on this but I no longer have a gold account and have now fully moved into pc gaming.

Glad to see a good shooter come to consoles this holiday season though.

I realize that it's cheaper to buy copies of Halo 2 for 5 dollars and use the one month cards that come with them than actually pay for three

Well, Halo did die, but then Uncharted found the suit and now he teamed up with Skyrim to fight Vanquish.

That's what Halo 4 is about.
