Btw opening vid, you have been warned!
Quoted for new thread.

I have to say I'm getting mixed feelings seeing CEA in action. On the one hand, it looks great, but on the other hand, once you put it into motion, the animations are just so clunky.

Yeah I'm glad to see the thread could still be put up. I like the "part II" feel of the thread title.
Thanks Dax!

Oh yeah. Devo. We miss ya. Hypertrooper is the biggest asshole in this list. I fuckin' hate him.

Now I saw the Anniversary Opening. It looks like that Sgt. Johnson has a much better Mo-Cap than Cpt. Keyes. lol.

Edit.: Hey Slightly Live, according to the HaloGAF gamertag list a douchbag called Dani has your nickname as a gamertag.

Really hope folks don't get carried away with post count numbers again, it's happened a few times. Nothing ever good comes from fluffing a thread.
Does anyone do that? I think some people just really like to participate a lot in every discussion and can't help but post a lot. I personally am always trying (and failing) to post as little as possible to keep my number down.

New home?
Thread title should be "You're Not Ghaleon."

Oh god, so much to catch up to. Some much purtyness that is. Game is looking great, I really like what they have done so far. Glad that Cortana is her Halo 3 self, and I hope they only slightly modify that model in future games. Hard call with the flood though, are they new models or their Halo 3 models. Im hoping the former, as Halo 3 left a little to be desired.

Ok, now to watch all the MP sexy stuff.

So those maps looked excellent, but goddamn couldn't they get anyone who's ever played an FPS before to play it?

It was supposed to be taken as a joke :(

It's like some natural law of game videos done by journalism outlets: a bunch of people that write about videogames and apparently none of them actually know how to play said games

how long do you have to be removed from videogames though when you don't know that Halo has a melee?

Gamespot has some nice videos online. But IGN's videos are embarrassing. Really... How is that even possible to release that?
