Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

I loved the first game, and like the second game. The third game with its poor single player story drove me away from this franchise. I am interested in Halo 4. I am hoping that the single player campaign is strong.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Personally, I'm not that much of a fan of MC or the games that feature him. I prefer the more story driven ODST and Halo Reach. I also really liked Halo Wars. I'm interested to see in what direction 343 will take this new MC featured game, if the story will be all over the place and only an after through like the first three games, or if like Reach and ODST it's a more focused and honed story driven experience.

That being said, I've always maintained that I like the Halo universe itself much more than the actual games. The games are fun, but there is still a lot they could do within the universe story wise. FUD goes a long way towards proving that and I'm pleased that it's turned out so well thus far.

Forward Unto Dawn - Part 4: Call Me Master Chief

Another great episode. I was surprised how believable MC was, running around and fighting. It could have easily come off as gimmicky and unrealistic, but they did an excellent job making the Chief look and fight in a believable way. The scenes with the cloaked Elite were also really tense and I like how they conveyed him as more of a terrifying monster than as some sort of skilled soldier.

It was also refreshing to see an alien that wasn't speaking english, simply for our benefit. It was a nice touch to make his speech unintelligible and added to his presence.

EDIT: Reply to the first of your two posts.

I agree with your last paragraph but I gotta admit that I tripped when I finally saw the Chief live, in action in today's installment of FUD!

I ask, once again, why they think a live action Halo movie wouldn't make money.

You would think someone would mention that the last Star Trek movie made a ton of cash, and Halo is more action movieish than that.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

The last attempt at a movie deal - to be co-produced by 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios - fell apart because Microsoft's terms included almost entire creative control and presented far less risk to Microsoft than for the Hollywood studios. If I recall correctly, there was also concern over Neil Blomkamp as a first-time director on a big budget project, even with Peter Jackson attached as producer.

Just because we think a live-action movie would be a sure-fire financial success doesn't mean that the studios that would be involved in producing the project wouldn't think differently, especially since they have plenty of data to look at that we wouldn't have access to. That said, I do think a movie is inevitable and I wouldn't be surprised if Forward Unto Dawn - with its $10 million budget - represents not just promotion for Halo 4 but Microsoft testing the waters for a theatrical film produced outside the studio system by 343 Industries directly.

"We're either the best-funded Web series of all time, a sort of mid-road healthy TV pilot, or a super-low budget movie," director Stewart Hendler said in an interview.

^ I agree, and this web-series is pretty sweet. Microsoft is definitely putting out some feelers to see how it is received.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

The reviews started to drop at midnight today. The folks at 343 Industries must be thrilled with how well the game has been received.

The Metacritic score is currently at 90.

Destructoid: 10
Joystiq: 5 stars
IGN: 9.8
OXM: 9.5
OXM UK: 9.0
CVG: 8.0 (and their review round-up)

I already had a good feeling about the game. Looks like that feeling was spot on.

Some would argue that Halo 4 is the biggest 360 release of the year.
