    Anything Halo related is gold in my book. :D

    Maybe they'll use the Master Chief as the hero but have a new set of villains, a different batch of alien invaders?

    *Yawn*

    I'll never understand the appeal of these games.

    Being able to shoot impossibly massive amounts of ordnance at alien creatures? What more could you want out of life?

    Halo specifically, or FPSes in general?

    Still have to get to Halo 2, myself......

    Shooting things. It's not just for inbred Hillbillies anymore.

    And is Halo Wars even out yet? Seems a bit odd to be announcing yet another project so soon.

    Edit: I see. This is just H3 with a few new nick nacks. And a cryptic commercial. That makes no sense.

    Halo Wars isn't being made by the original Bungie team, though. It's more of a side project. And besides, its just an RTS, not a shooter.

    And that's when my interest plummeted, your honor. Thanks for the info.

    This is a rather nonsensical post. I'd be much less interested in Halo Wars if it had the FPS-oriented Bungie team producing it, rather than Ensemble Studios (responsible for some AAA-quality RTS titles over the years).

    Please don't use reason against ignorant fanboys. You know it won't work.

    Helluva good question - where is

    Halo Wars is ostensibly - and finally - being released on Jan 30th.

    It's apparently Ensemble's last project - not sure what that is all about. I'm still a bit skeptical as I absolutely hate RTS games on a console - I really miss a mouse and keyboard when I'm playing an RTS.

    Actually, from the plot preview of the trailer, it looks more like Halo 2.5. Which is fine by me. There are a lot of holes about what happened on Earth while the Chief was assing around on Delta Halo and the Forerunner ship (I still want to know how Keys, Johnson, and the Arbiter got back to Earth in the first place). Why, the mere fact that New Mombassa was merely devastated and not completely wiped off the map (as it was by Halo 3) when Regret's ship jumped out on top of it is pretty intriguing. My guess would be the player character is the lucky person in the last drop pod, who wasn't blown to pieces by the backwash from the jump.

    I don't get any of that. What does Halo 3 have to do with anything?

    I don't mind FPSs. I just never got the appeal of Halo. It seems everybody who bought an XBox bought one for the Halo games, and I never got why you'd buy a system just for Halo, when the multiplayer seemed to be the only reason to play it. And I thought GoldenEye did it much better.

    (I did try single player Halo 2 and hated it, but I think the games were just overhyped. Over hyping REALLY turns me off on products)
