Headshot. Underneath bigger letters saying KILLING SPREE.

Then you get bonus points for the KS which leads to a level up , fireworks go off, and the monks start chantiing "You're so fucking good at Halo"

And you wonder why the BR is silenced?

I want a big long bar underneath the HUD telling me when my rank up is coming too.

Thanks in advance.

Fuck I'm going to destroy kids in this game. Fuck Fedex I quit. Going pro.
You can actually make the cadence work in time with the chant, lol

If its VR simulation why cant the bodies just like smoke or phase out after death. Shit'd be awesome. Like OK yes they can still have a death animation and stay for a second but then instead of dissapearing (which is stupid and breaks logic) they just phase out.

The environments are "VR" but the participants are "real" - anyway, it's not an issue.

Damn Gears dropped again!

I understand.

It's also a deal with it moment.
I disagree, that's hardly a "deal with it" issue if in fact the bodies will block shots.

A curious response.

So the participants (spartans) are shooting real guns at each other in a VR environment? They are 'actually' killing each other?

You'd think Margaret would be upset by such a waste of resources.
They are playin' dead dawg!

I don't get it.

They environment they are fighting on is created how?

So the people are actually fighting in a real room, but on different environments?

What ground and walls are they fighting on and around if its all VR yet they are real?

FUCK ME!! Holy shit man. Yo wtf this game looks like no other Halo game. Wow. Can't wait to play. I can't wait to play on that Forerunner map, I feel like I'm going to discover so many jumps on it. 8=====================D

Also, 100% getting the limited edition. I think they really knocked it out of the park. The packaging looks awesome but the 3 map packs included in the limited edition is GENIUS. Especially for us hardcore who are going to get all the map packs anyway. So good. Can't wait, gonna pre-order next week son!

PARTAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also cyren, it's HaloGAF not Halogaf. My OCD kicks in so hard whenever I go to THC. lol

Maybe something like the Star Trek holodeck where you're actually moving around?

edit; LOL Juices. I'll slurp that 30fps and no dedi D all day. Also, I don't pull host every other game, I wish lol.

That Limited edition D is sooooooo gooooooooooooooood. lol
<3
Thats weird, in 4v4 mode I pull host every game or every other game. I think I had host every MLG game we played.

and YES, I'll be sitting on the limited edition D all night. Steel case will sit perfectly next to my H2 steel case

Those death Animations are awesome

Lighting here is incredible.

Scrimshaw Wraparound The map formally known as Wraparound is seriously gorgeous

Something i picked up on in that last video, seems like frank loves to talk about halo, must be nice to have a job that you can be that interested in.
I get the feeling when he speaks he is just on the edge of blurting something awesome out but he knows he cant.

Lucky. When I first got FiOs I was pulling host all the fucking time. Past 8 months though I pull it like once every 40-50 games. Weird. I either want it all the time or never. I hate re-adjusting to it.

lol @ second paragraph.

edit: Yo someone measure shield recharge rate from the video!!!

1.3 seconds from start to finish on half shield 2.6 for full shield

You have no idea. Actually one of the hardest things is being diplomatic about how fun it is. Right now, the game is so smooth and playable and enjoyable that it's hard to not just say, ZOMG IT'S SO AWESOME or something worse and more arrogant sounding, but I genuinely love playing the thing. Like. I LOVE it. And you can't really say that in interviews because it sounds hokey.


Also, somebody asked if the LE case is a Steelbook - yes. It is a Steelbook.

Holodeck with safeties off and real death; I think we're missing something.

Obviously they aren't REALLY killing each other, because that is crazy.

SO MUCH BETTER THAN REACH

Steelbook? Sold.

Also, the way bodies hit the floor is awesome, animations feel so real and smooth.

My only concern is weapons popping out of nowhere (like in 3), I don't recall this happening in Reach (atleast for primary weapons).

Frankie, this is important for us international people: Will Halo 4 be multilingual? (as in, international versions having the original English voicetrack on disc)

The only reason why I own both Halo 2 and 3 twice is because I couldn't stand the German voice-acting and thus had to import the English versions from the UK. From ODST onward I simply did that right away. Curiously, Halo is basically the only series that has this issue. Most other games have numerous language tracks on disc.

However, if I remember correctly, Anniversary was in fact multilingual... So, can we expect the same sort of treatment with Halo 4? Would save me the hassle (and longer wait) to get the UK version to Germany...

Would be much appreciated, at any rate!

It would be nice but audio takes up alot of space and adding multiple voice acting would limit the room for other stuff and it seems like halo 4 will push every boundary the 360 has so i wouldnt get your hopes up

The strafe seems nice, but the BF3 text is beneath contempt. 5SK, spread-having BR looks like trash. Grey map looks like an escape fest.

A video from a player with a modicum of skill would be appreciated.
