Halo 4
« on: March 05, 2012, 08:31:38 PM »
Since it has been announced now for quite some time, and the first footage was just released today/last night, I figured it was high time Halo 4 got it's own topic.

First Look:

http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/Universe/detail/making-halo-4-first-look/9a9548bc-a4bf-4112-b4a9-ff935afecb5e

I, personally, am really stoked about this. I am a little worried about what they are going to do with Chief's character, but not terribly so.

"First Platoon wins!""And how do you figure that?""The others cheated.""I say they improvised.""They cheated!""THEY ADAPTED AND OVERCAME!"

It looks... exactly like Reach.

I'm less than impressed but undaunted; the Story mode will be better.

Yup. A little sharper detail, but hardly any difference otherwise.

Meh. I'll probably get the cheap version, if I do get it.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

I think it looks awesome. But just like the last couple Halo Games I probably won't be able to play it. I also am hoping how the Master Chief gets new armour.

Great vid on what the Sound crew has been up to and what we can expect.

Sounds l like they are doing their best to try and live up to the masterpieces that are the Halo Soundtracks.

The Limited Edition version of Halo 4 has just been announced.  Included will be a "War Games Map Pack" plus a voucher for 3 more map packs (with 3 maps in each) releasing post-launch, early access to 6 specialisations which will then be released gradually to all, a booklet with diagrams about various in-game tech, plus other digital goodies like an exclusive in-game emblem, armour and weapon skin, and a 90 minute extended version of the Halo: Forward Unto Dawn live-action webseries coming out around the games release.

And the price?  $100 / £65.  Normally I'd be a bit put off getting an LE at that price, but actually it does seem to really provide great value for your money, so I may have to look into getting this one.

I watched it earlier on and its actually pretty good.  It seemed to set up the characters well and I also understand now why its called "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn".

Its a 5 part series, the first instalment is 25 minutes long and its available online (if you don't want to watch it on your Xbox via Halo: Waypoint, like I did):

Loved it.

Annoyed at the main character and his beef with the 'senseless violence' bit. That just makes him seem like an idiot. I think they could have chose a better place to forge character growth than that.

Otherwise, thought it was awesome. Can't wait for more.

I thought this really kinda tied in why his character thinks the way he does.

Ok, so he doesn't think he can kill another human being. Completely understandable.

But if he calls the Insurrectionists 'innocent civilians', he's just a fool. They're terrorists. They blow up innocent civilians. If you don't want to kill them, that's ok. But don't call them innocent. If they wanted to solve their problems peacefully, they wouldn't be killing civilians. Plain and simple.

I definitely see why they chose this as a place for character development, because the obvious answer to his killing problem is not to join the military. He has the extreme pressure from his family to join and perform accordingly, but he doesn't think he could ever kill anyone, and doesn't want to be there.

Good conflict, I'm just a personality type that gets very grated by willful ignorance and stupidity.

Double post, just because it's completely unrelated to my last one.

Here's a vid showing off some of the Forge for Halo 4:

http://kotaku.com/5950361/making-gorgeous-maps-in-halo-4s-forge-mode?fb_action_ids=10151236422002559&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%7B%2210151236422002559%22%3A540024489357748%7D&action_type_map=%7B%2210151236422002559%22%3A%22og.likes%22%7D&action_ref_map=%5B%5D

I think the 'magnets' feature is waaay overdue, and awesome.

Not as excited about the 'Trait zones', those could either be really cool, or really annoying.

I saw the forge revel footage from RTX earlier in the year.  It is looking really good the new features, and I love the prospect of creating low-gravity zones (Republic Commando Arena A9 remake, anyone? ;) ).

Yesterday there was a blog on the Halo Waypoint site talking about progression in Halo 4, and much more CoD-esque now.  You can make your own loadouts and reaching the max level is no longer the end as you choose 'Specialisations' to go into.  The max basic level is 50, and once you max out each specialisation (with 10 levels in each) you hit level 130.

It looks like unlocks are broken into equipment and cosmetic categories, with all equipment unlocked by level 26 (although its said you won't be able to afford it all until level 50) and armour parts, weapon skins, emblems, etc unlocked through normal ranks and specialisations.

Finally, Forward Unto Dawn part 2 is now available.

While it may be being released as a mini-series online, there will be a 90-minute edition with the Limited Edition of Halo 4 don't forget, and its coming to DVD (and BluRay) later in they year which may have the same extended runtime.

3 weeks on Tuesday to go.  Just finished up my Halo 3 refresher playthrough and as I have a copy of Halo: CE Anniversary on its way to me I'll likely begin a refresher playthrough of that as well.  Starting to get real excited.

I love how they changed the armor that made sense for the timeline.   When MC is getting suited up they are putting Mark 4 armor on him then the new Halo 4 armor at the end.

Yeah I appreciated that attention to detail as well.

Hopefully my Xbox 360 will be fixed tomorrow (has been "dead" since June), so I can play this upon release (or soon after)!

Got my confirmation this morning, my copy of Halo 4 LE is in the post!  Also redeemed the code for my assassination emblem, not that I'm likely to use it (stuck with my emblem from Halo 3 for the past few games and see no need to change it).

And of course, new (and final) episode of Forward Unto Dawn:

Oh, and I've started reading Halo: The Thursday War and it seems to have some build-up to Halo 4 in it, including a little insight into UNSC Infinity and its crew.

TOLD YOU SO.

Sorry, had to go there :P But I did tell you it would be better than you thought.

I'm about halfway through the campaign (just started this afternoon, but only played a few hours cause of election and other commitments) and so far I love it. The graphics are incredible and breathtaking, the gameplay is smooth and still feels very Halo.

I'm not a huge fan of the Promethean enemies for the moment, just because there are so damn many of them all over that you never get to keep your human weapons for very long before you run out of ammo and have to go Forerunner or covenant. Otherwise they are a challenging and fun enemy to blast away at.

I've got more comments, but I'll save those for later. For now, suffice it to say I'm in love with this game.

Lord I hate Metacritic sometimes. Their stupid 'User-rating' system is complete bullcrap, and has ruined their credibility.

I've got a friend who was convinced by the negative reviews of a bunch of complete morons that Halo 4 isn't worth getting. All because they get hundreds of trolls on there who write 'reviews' which are really just several paragraphs of personal preferences, minor complaints, or utter lies. To these retarded imbeciles, one minor little problem with the game (Example: the guns dont sound as good as they should)  and they give it a bad rating. Even a ZERO, in some cases.

What makes it even more annoying is how they will cry NO MATTER WHAT a game developer does. If they make it too much like the Bungie Halos, they complain that there's nothing new or fresh. If they revamp the game and multiplayer, like they have done with H4, they all b**ch that it's 'not Halo anymore', or that it has 'lost its soul'.

I despise people like this. 

Whatever. I'll enjoy the game while they wallow in their pathetic narrow-mindedness.

Just noticed a nice little scheme MS have on their XBL Rewards service.  If by 30th November you play 35+ hours of Halo 4 multiplayer you get 100 free MS Points.  Play 70+ hours and that goes up to 300 MS Points, and 140+ hours raises it to 600 MS Points.

http://rewards.xbox.com/halo-4/

Also, has anyone played Spartan Ops yet?  I just did the first few missions (after finding out you have to install Disk 2 so everything is played from Disk 1) and it was actually pretty good.  The missions seem quite varied, although they seem to all end up with clearing out all the enemies by the end.  I was pleased to see you seem to have unlimited lives as there was one mission where I ended up fighting 3 sword-Elites, which of course meant a fair few deaths trying to stop them getting close enough to one-hit kill me.  Still, the first 3 missions (on normal) got me up to SR-7 and unlocked a few new items for purchase.

I played the first two or three Spartan Ops missions, they were good if a bit short.

Mostly been hitting War Games which is great fun. I power played until i hit SR 10 to unlock Active Camo for my loadout, been enjoying assasinating people left and right.

I just finished the campaign a little while ago and I'm just going to go ahead and say it was the best in the series. I liked pretty much everything about it. It wasn't perfect but I really liked it.

If you like Halo its a must buy.

Last night I decided to watch the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn that came with my copy of Halo 4: Limited Edition.  In case you haven't realised yet, its not an actual copy you download to your console but simply a code to unlock streaming access for it on Halo: Waypoint.

Still, they re-arranged the start to have all the Cortana sequences as one long segment, putting the opening credits over it to make it very cinematic.  I didn't notice any extended scenes within the show itself, however after the end of the credits I saw an extra part with interviews with some of the cadets as well as some outtakes from filming.

And on the ESRB Rating, it is M for only Blood and Violence, so that pretty much confirms no swear words, as it would have Strong Language on there as well.

That is completely incorrect. "Teabagging" is something that a player encounters in online multiplayer, which is not rated, thus the bit that says "Online Interactions Not Rated".  Halo 4 was rated M for mature because of Blood and Violence, no more, no less.

343 Industries added a new feature which lets you're hologram auto-teabag fallen enemies.  I don't know if its usable in single-player, but I would think it being a feature of the game with it wouldn't come under the "Online Interactions" category.

As for the language, the Halo series as a whole has been pretty clean and Halo 4 is no different from previous titles.

Not quite at the end of the campaign; still on the one where I'm in the Broadsword, but I think I'm pretty safe in saying

[spoiler]I'm probably going to miss Cortana, aren't I? :(

It's just so heartbreaking, especially the line where she says that Chief will probably get assigned a new Cortana AI, and she says "You know it won't be me...right?" I just feel so bad for her, and I'm pretty sure I see where it's going. :([/spoiler]

I've played loads of halo and on a personal level I managed to accept Halo 4's storyline as a continuation to Bungie's legacy.. However I still felt more strongly about the first three Halos that came out.

Gameplay wise, as compared to the previous Halo titles, Halo 4 matchmaking is a lot faster paced (no bloom on precision weapons, and not to mention beefed up automatic weapons, instant respawn on certain gametypes, faster reloads) and due to many different variations one can set up a player, there's a lot of angles at which one could tackle the matchmaking experience. Personally I prefered it when things were more simple like in the previous versions. There was a greater window for adaptation and reaction.


But.. all these are just my views =P

(If you ask me, I'd still rather play Reach over Halo 4 anytime. Even though the glory days were pretty much in 2 and 3 xD)

Meh. It's disappointing for me. I love the game,

But literally, every time Halo or COD comes out, I feel like I'm playing the same game.

Campaign = Meh. Best campaign for me was either ODST or Reach.

Multiplayer = Great, not as good as 3 but better than Reach.

Co-Op = I MISS FIREFIGHT!!!

I just finished Spartan Ops season 1 and I can now say that I really love it.  For the first half it ended up feeling like a bit of a gimmick where similar missions were put on the same maps with not much story tying them together.  The second half though, that was really action packed and I'm now quite glad I did it all in one go (or at least over the past 3 nights).  I really felt invested in the story pretty quickly in the second half, and the twists they threw in showed they paid much more attention to story-writing then in the first half.  I can honestly say now that if 343 Industries released Spartan Ops as a standalone, episodic game for a reasonable price I'd happily pay for it to play future seasons that way, especially if it also tied into the multiplayer of the future core games.

Ugh. My Xbox really is shot. It scratched my Halo 4 all up! Also, and this has nothing to do with the disc, I assume, Halo 4 now will not play any sound effects whatsoever. The Dashboard button and other games still make noise but Halo 4...mute. Completely. I hope a new Xbox will solve this.

So the disc is scratched, and the only thing which won't play sound is the game, so you assume the XBOX is at fault? You might want to look at your reasoning.

Older generation xboxes tend to eat discs. If the scratches are geometrical than your xbox probably did it. If not you may have bought a scratched disc.

That still doesn't make sense to me, since that is the only game where the sound won't play; I'd assumed it was the game beforehand. Especially since now it's a pain to get the game to work at all, but we've been having trouble getting any game to work lately, Halo 4 is just an extra pain.

Older generation xboxes tend to eat discs. If the scratches are geometrical than your xbox probably did it. If not you may have bought a scratched disc.

I believe it may be the Xbox. We've had it worked on twice now, and it is three years old. We're probably due for a new one soon, and yes, the scratches are geometrical, so it likely was the Xbox which made the scratch because I know it was pure and unscathed when I bought it, and I'm always very careful putting it in the tray or back in the case.

Moving the console while in operation can cause silmilar results as well. But I would definitely get a new xbox anyway. Older generation xboxes WILL eat your discs. My old xbox ate my Elder Scrolls: Oblivion disc once when I played it for 8 hours straight.

I'm lucky cause I got one of the xbox 360 S's...although, I'm being told it's going to be obsolete when 2014 rolls around and the xbox 720 comes out... which btw, I totally called back in 05. It was something like "Dude, you get that xbox 360 for 399.99, and half a decade later, they're going to make the Xbox 720, and after that the xbox 1080...and they're going to charge you top dollar for it, and make your old console obsolete so you either buy the new one or you don't game."

Two things:

1. I doubt Microsoft will continue with the degrees of rotation motif in naming their consoles.

2. Advancemnt is good, so stop complaining.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Are you kidding me? They've already started calling it the xbox 720.

Also, Advancement? we've been playing the same games over and over and over since Halo, AC, and COD came out. They keep saying how the xbox 360 doesn't have great graphics and the Xbox 720 will or what not, that's all BS. It's all about money, More and more money. And they're just going to make the LIVE on 360 obsolete so you can't play unless you buy the Speculatedly priced $599.99  720.

Are you kidding me? They've already started calling it the xbox 720.
Microsoft has yet to even state that a new Xbox exists yet, so how could they be calling it the 'Xbox 720'?  Only video game media sites/magazines are calling it the 720, and that is only to emphasize that it is the next console along from the Xbox 360.  I actually read one one such site a few weeks back that a supposed 'inside source' at Microsoft stated to them that the new console will drop the numbers and simply go back to being the 'Xbox'.  Besides, I read back at launch in 2005 that the name 'Xbox 360' was intended to represent that the Xbox wasn't just a games console, but a system capable of providing a full range of living room digital entertainment needs (not their exact words, obviously, but its more or less the same).  A name like 'Xbox 720' just wouldn't fit with that line of thinking.

Also, Advancement? we've been playing the same games over and over and over since Halo, AC, and COD came out.
They keep making the same games because people keep buying them, so the developers keep making a profit on them, so they make more, which the consumers then buy, and so on.  However, to say there has been no advancement at all is quite extreme, as there have been quite a few additions to these franchises (Firefight and Spartan Ops in Halo, multiplayer in AC, Spec Ops and Zombies in CoD).

They keep saying how the xbox 360 doesn't have great graphics and the Xbox 720 will or what not, that's all BS.
Graphics isn't everything, but in this case the fact that the Xbox 360 isn't up to par is true.  Look at any modern PC game and say that the Xbox 360 has as sharp textures, or as smooth animation.  I've been getting a few games lately I might have gotten on Xbox 360 for my PC instead and I'm glad because it looks far better oin my PC then it would have on Xbox 360.  One of the things that excited me when they announced the PS4 specs is that it has plenty of power and memory to provide sharp textures, smooth animations, realistic physics and fast load times which all help make games feel that bit more polished.

It's all about money, More and more money. And they're just going to make the LIVE on 360 obsolete so you can't play unless you buy the Speculatedly priced $599.99  720.
It's Microsoft, of course it's all about money.  Having said that, $599.99 sounds way too high to me, especially if they do what they've since done with the Xbox 360 and offered a version you can buy for $99 plus $14.99 a month for 24 months.  I'm also not sure they'll be able to get away with charging for Xbox Live any more, especially with PSN being free and PC gaining ground back (thanks partially to the ridiculously long cycle of current generation consoles).

I totally called back in 05. It was something like "Dude, you get that xbox 360 for 399.99, and half a decade later, they're going to make the Xbox 720, and after that the xbox 1080...and they're going to charge you top dollar for it, and make your old console obsolete so you either buy the new one or you don't game."
You do realise this has been going on since the 1970's?  Games consoles didn't magically start in 2005, and if anything its even harder now to make the old one obsolete.  Look at the PS2.  They've only just stopped production of it, making it the best selling and longest lived console in history.  Along with this '10-year lifecycle' MS have been talking about for the Xbox 360, I doubt we'll see it go away just yet.  I'd say probably 2015 - 2018 we'll see Xbox Live for Xbox 360 shut off, depending on how popular the old hardware and games are, and how backwards compatible they make the old games on the new hardware.



Anyway, this is a topic about Halo 4, not the new Xbox.  Discussion should be in either the XBL clan thread, or its own topic.  So, to get back to Halo 4: I got up to SR-37 last weekend after starting to get into the SWAT playlist.  Probably going to more Spartan Ops for now though so I can complete all the episodes on Legendary and get my commendations up more.

Understood, the discussion had changed.

Anyways, SR-56 Rogue-6. :D I also got the Raider armor...it is my current helmet.

Who is stoked for this 5000 kills in one month challenge?
