The Halo 3 & Halo 3: ODST Thread

Yup...it's officially confirmed for a 2007 release. There's a trailer up at Bungie's web site under the article titled "Halo 3". I have to say I'm pretty escited by this, looks like the MA5B assault rifle is back as well.

I'm inclined to agree. I wish there had been some gameplay but those graphics looks ******' sick.

I can't wait until this game comes out.

Halo is about the only video game I play (and I'm not very good live,) however, I doubt I'll be getting the 360 just to play 3. :-X

The trailer didn't do much for me, but--then again--neither did Halo 2, so I guess that's to be expected. 

Hopefully they'll get rid of all that "play as some weird alien that's not Master Chief for half the game!" bull**** for the new one.  Then I might be interested.

I just saw the trailer. If anything, the imagery is gorgeous.

I saw the trailer again last night, but on a friend's 50" HDTV.

Looks pretty, has a nice score, and that's about it.  Nothing much happens.  I'd like to see some gameplay--some action--but, assuming this doesn't come out until late 2007--still a year and a half away--they probably don't have a lot of gameplay footage ready to go right now.

So, I'd consider this trailer more a teaser than anything at this point.

Me too. I'm really digging the score as well, I just love the trumpets doining the Halo theme...but, then, again, I am a trumpet player, so that's to be expected.

Anyone catch the new trailer last night on MNF? I thought it was kinda cool seeing MC a a kid, but wondered why they felt it was neccesary to put that in there. Now I'm even more pysched for Halo 3 to be released, in hopefully less than a year from now.

BTW, if you missed it, here's a YouTube of the trailer.

Aww ****, totally forgot last night about the trailer. :(

Right now I'm loading the trailer off of Xbox.com, for some reason it's taking forever...

EDIT- Just watched it. Hmm...not sure if it was MC as a kid, or just two kids wondering what's up in space...

I loved the transition from past to present during the battle, but a little confused what that thing he was he used...looked like a grenade of some sort, but didn't really make sense.

But how he lept of the ridge into the group of Elites was just amazing. I really can't wait for this game.

Upon closer examination, it looked like Brutes.

One of them looked like they had they had the Fist Of Rukt, which I so hope is not true, as it took me forever to finally kill Tartarus in that level.

Of course it was Chief as a kid - and the idea, was that as a kid he was wondering about beings from other planets, wishing he could meet them - but now he probably wishes he never had.


It was obvious right???
