Hey, if you guys would rather provide a quality version of the same scene where Mr Skullface has ditched his teenage emo-phase helmet for something more professional... would be happy to retire my skillz!


In all seriousness though I understand the need for differentiated character design, but he is pretty ridiculous. Said it before: you'd expect it from something brain-dead like Army of Two, not Halo. :(

He has a skull too. And he's badass

The art looks beautiful apart from Kat's design. Why does she look so blatantly feminised for a Spartan? In The Baby Sitter the audience had no idea the Spartan was a woman until she took her helmet off, which in my opinion, and how the fiction has previously described it is the correct way to portray a female Spartan. So to have Kat with her exaggerated gangly body clutching at the fallic pistol with both hands just looks ridiculous in my eyes.

Everything else looks gorgeous and of course that was only a minor gripe. Jorge could potentially be the coolest character in the entire Halo universe.
oh my god :lol :lol

Got to disagree with Arnie. I think Kat's design is pretty well realised. I liked how Bungie have toed near-immaculately the line between her being excessively feminised and unrealisticly butch.

Each to their own, I personally don't know why she has to look completely different to every other Spartan, just because she's a woman. It's is an over-feminised character model, the same way you think Skully is over the top.

Still doesn't negate the fact Jorge is the shit.

In the cold.
Hmm...Kat does look a bit thinner than she did in the reveal trailer, IIRC.

Granted, it's a different perspective, but to me, the difference seems a bit skewed.

I thought I was a GI subscriber, but I didn't even when realize my subscription ran out over the summer. :p
Wonder if I can extend it and get the issue right away...

... along with a little Halo Reach goodies, it's like nerdtopia in Jan 2010! Great start to the year!


EDIT: ...and I haven't cared for the skull on the helmet since they showed it at the Priemere, but it's a artistic choice I can live with.

So what do we call this new character?

He can be THE Tom Morello!:lol
I protest.
Just like Dare and Mickey, he has his name written on his forehead. Clearly, he's Unsc (Oonsk).
