I don't know why, but the armor damage bugs me. We'll never see him except in cutscenes/vehicles, but a damage progression ala Arkham Asylum/City would be pretty cool. Also nice variation for MP models.

Oh, so it's a bullshot.

I was being sarcastic. And higher resolution isn't the only thing it's been output at. Dat SSAA! And you're wrong about the zero whining. They all got it. Uncharted, Forza, Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, Last of Us, Gears, etc... If you don't want your fans whining stop saying a bullshot is not a bullshot.
Multiplatform devs usually sell lion share of units on console, but base their marketing off the (high-end) PC footage and have no problem claiming it's genuine. Console exclusive developers compete in the same space as multiplatform devs, they need to release photo mode screenshots, otherwise they'll look bad compared to Assassin's Creeds and Battlefields. That's the reality of the situation, otherwise a casual fan will look at an undoctored Halo 4/The Last of Us screenshot and a PC screenshot of AC3 and say the first 2 look shit in comparison, even if he ends up playing AC3 on 360/PS3.

At this point GAF should know better than that.

I wish they would have released one screen shot of MC and one of something else entirely instead of just two with MC in it.

I have high hopes for 343 Industries. Their team looks like they're having lots of fun (Vidoc of their team posted days ago).

how do they explain the fact that his armour has changed in deep space?

Midichlorians.

Devs don't even know what a bullshot means, when they see that they probably think we're saying it's all CG and whatnot. Most of the time a "bullshot" just means unrealistic image quality.

Character model looks nice to me
You're back! I was worrying there for a second.

Looks quite nice; better than the toys did.

Toys were not colorfull enough. I'm hopefull from the comments that environments will make a huge difference andwill bring the colors back.

Certainly Reach was an experiment and some choices were made to :
1/ not let the COD success kill Halo completely
2/ give 343i to play with some of the most cheriched aspects of Halo and not let their first game compete in every way with Bungie's latest.

One thing I absolutely hate that's been a trend in everything Halo 4 we've seen so far, Warthog included:



Fucking rivets/circles for NO REASON whatsoever. It looks so stupid.

Why do you have to be so insensitive? It's Braille. He's going to need it when he wants to dress up after he [sploier]goes blind[/sploilrer]. A canonical explanation for the strict art budget cuts for the rest of the trilogy.

Where should I be looking? G4TV website? Or should I just stay on the gaf?

Keep it locked to GAF if you don't wanna go hunting. I would hit the community thread, that will most likely be the first place it gets posted. With a Gaming Side news thread following immediately after.

Overwhelming disappointment.

343i had a task, not an easy task I understand, but an important task nonetheless. They were tasked with carving the future of the Halo franchise, whilst also maintaining and preserving what makes it so incredible.

They have failed.

The pictures are disastrous. The Master Chief is holding the 'br' at the completely wrong angle. Have they even played Halo before? Everybody knows that he holds it at a 37.6 degree angle, this picture has it more at a 39.8.

Disgraceful.

Microsoft have abandoned the hardcore gamer. I am done with the Halo franchise.

But really, the screens are fucking incredible, Master Chief's design is beautiful. I cannot wait to see this in motion and I really hope that the screens are an indicator of colour being returned to the IP

Eugh. That hallway shot is looking less than stellar.

And by less than stellar I mean fucking awful. Let's hope that's the compression.
