Gametrailers Offscreen Gameplay of Exile.

Nothing that great, just thought I'd post it here anyway.
Thanks. Every player I've seen wielding the Halo 4 pistol has no idea how to use it. Have none of these guys played Reach?

Anyway, for each video I see, the more I want to play the game. I really, really hope certain AA's or specialisations don't sour the experience too much because the core of this game looks very solid. If the maps are strong enough we'll have a really special Halo game. That Legendary campaign talk is lovely to hear too, I thought Reach's was a little too easy excepting a couple of encounters.

Also Banshee looks to still be a glass cannon. The guy in that video finishes it with a pistol (no idea how much damage it had taken beforehand. However, in Halo 3 the magnum and BR didn't do much against the 'shee. Duel SMG's or an AR were the more effective options).

i dont remember halo 2 being particularly hard. in fact, i'd say the hardest battle on legendary in the entire series is on tsavo highway in halo 3.
Halo 2 in certain sections was unfair, but I never found it a great challenge.

I found Halo CE harder on legendary then I did 2.

Personally, all the rest are pretty easy. Never had a problem with them, just took my time.

i remember 2 being unfair with snipers, but once you died a few times you knew their locations which made it somewhat easy. CE was easy when you used the PP.

why do i struggle so much with tsavo highway? fucking bullet sponge brutes with canons, thats why

Newer justification for the Prom Nom Nom hardlight skull: *Cryptum spoilers*
They fought ancient humans in the past.
I'm sure it would be difficult psychologically having to go up against a nine-foot-tall armored hardlight death knight cyberbeast that not only surpasses you technologically but is constantly wailing and roaring to try and shake you. Plus, if the
humans
weren't significantly armored, it probably could have bitten or even eaten its enemies.

Can't wait for the variant with a white sheet draped over it. Oh, those Forerunners and their famous Halloween antics.

Can you increase Spartan Rank through Spartan Ops?

I don't know how much MP I will play with my internet connection so I might end up playing a ton of Spartan Ops, but it would be disappointing if experience gain is super low in it.

Yes, I believe 343 has stated that SR/progression system is in Spartan Ops and War Games.

Might I say what an incredibly terrible name Battlewagon is?

Hopefully Chief or Cortana never utter that out-loud and it's just a part of the extended fiction...

How am I supposed to be taking the story seriously when people are talking about Battlewagons.
Nothing would make me happier than finding out that the writers over at 343 have somehow managed to work the BATTLEWAGON, a food nipple and maybe some romantically involved space apes into a single sentence.
I like my Halo at its most overtly stupid. I'm now completely on board. The Prom Knights are awesome. Battlewagon. BATTLEWAGON!
