Ok I'm sold on Spartan Ops. So many episodes, how are they supporting that?! I've never been more exciting for non MP Halo stuff.

Also, did I see a Spartan in MP disintegrate like from the campaign? Pretty sick shit.

These games are terrible. Not a single game has me interested outside of Halo 4 and ACIII.

They visit 343 and that's the best they could do? Maybe a minute of new footage, some B-roll stuff from earlier in the day, and Frank and co repeating the same points...

They couldn't have Geoff sitting down with someone at 343, load up the game, go through the menu's and explain the mode and show it for 10 minutes and explain things as they came up.

Things like this are the bane of E3. Three whole days of coverage and we end up with "reveals" like that.

Really disappointing. What little was shown was nice though.

The fact that that pistol shoots sticky grenades is a bit disappointing, although it sounds like it could lead to even more hilarious hijinks. Hopefully there's a traditional bouncing pro pipe as well?

i'm a little confused about spartan ops... its a story based co-op mode replacing firefight. is it replacing campaign co-op as well?

With everything going on and going well, it must be such a great time to be working at MS Studios. I've been checking the Vancouver site for jobs daily, but nothing for me.

I think I saw a Brute in there with Halo 3-style armor on, no? Or was I seeing things.
Seeing things. I just watched it in slow mo from start to finish and didn't see a Brute.

Did see a couple diving executions which looked cool. Also noticed that the damage indicator in campaign / spartan ops seems different than the damage indicator in "War Games". In one there's an arrow, in the other there's the orange hex grid.

Also, I'm sure people noticed in the previous videos released that there's a grenade indicator in the HUD to show when there's a grenade about the explode near you.

So I'm confused with the Spartan Ops episodes.

Josh Holmes says that each episode has 5 missions that launch each week. Does he mean 5 all up (i.e. 1 episode/mission per week and 5 weeks of content) or 5 per week?

I'm assuimg it's the former, but it was kinda unclear.

Not that I'm aware of.

Random idea for Campaign Co-op:
Player 1 is Master Chief.
Players 2, 3, & 4 are their respective Spartan IVs from the Infinity modes.

1 episode per week, 5 missions per episode.

all extra, all included with the game. Five missions, one episode per week.
