I actually really dig the HUD, and seeing Cortana in the HUD. I don't care if it looks crowded, it finally looks like you are in the helmet. So cool.

For anybody who has not seen this, watch. This may possibly be game of show. Watch first vid then second. My mind is blown, Ubi wins e3.
Absolutely. I just spent 10 minutes explaining the whole video, point by point, to my girlfriend, and then I had her watch it.

There's so much potential here for chaos and open-world shenanigans. Plus, the thematic elements of the game are the things I've been lamenting for a few years now.

The sound design sounds really good on the weapons.

Also, now I remember what the teleporting enemies remind me of: warping in Protoss units from upgraded Gateways IIRC.

I think it sounds good, but not quite right. Seems not quite balanced correctly and somewhat off.

I do not understand how Prometheans are described as "a threat beyong anything the Chief has faced before". There ain't much worse than Halos with their ability to wipe out all life in a galaxy... unless these Prometheans can destroy the whole galaxy.

I think they mean compared with the Covenant, the big previous threat.

The Chief kicked the Flood's ass and the Flood kicked the Forerunner's ass. Chief should win, no contest. :D

This may seem like a weird thing to want, but I would like some dynamic lighting with the Forge objects. In other words, I would like Forge objects to cast proper shadows on the environment and on other objects. It would make things look a lot better.

I consider the Covenant and the Halos as the same threat, considering the Covenant's intention to activate the Halos. But i understand that alone, without the Halos, the Covies ain't as powerful as the Prometheans.

I'm not sure how i'm mean to feel threatened in Halo 4 though, the Chief has already fought of 2/3 big threats, one more is nothing. A bit meta, yes, but we've seen/played the Chief fighting these events and we're (well, some anyway) are very convicted that the Chief can outfight practically anything. 343i needs to do something really big to shake that conviction. Or actually make the Prometheans win, just let the Chief survive but watch the destruction of the humankind.

EDIT dammit, the final post on this page.

Watch Dogs, a likely-next-gen Ubisoft title. The only thing that matched up to Halo graphically so far.
Even if it's not a next gen title, the demo was running from a PC. Far too good looking for current generation consoles; any port wouldn't look near as clean.

Ugh, really hate how they had to use the Reach Banshee model in Halo 4... It is really, really ugly. Same with Halo Anniversary.
EDIT assuming the wings are static they're a bit better. But still want the classic model back.

I feel the exact same way. They're making weird aesthetic choices that don't mesh IMO. Should they be using a newer design of the Banshee [from Halo 2 & 3] just like they're using the latest AR design since it's many years later? And then you have the completely new BR, too. It's odd.

Indeed.
The least they could've done would have been add "pods" to wingtips, like in the classic desing. The lack of that small detail is my biggest gripe in Halo Reach Banshee.
