    I dunno, maybe I'm too cynical but watching that trailer and it just seems like a re-skinned Halo. Big enemy aliens with swords, energy grenades.... Was I expecting too much from Bungie? Something new and fresh?
     
    JC713 and ghasmanjr like this.
  3. They have a similar art style. Thats about the only similarities I see besides the fact that they are both shooters based in the future. Halo 1-2 were in fact works of art. You wouldnt say picassos paintings look too similar would you? I say give this game a chance.
     
  4. There's also halo odst and halo reach which were also made by bungie. Those were NOT works of art. In fact reach, the lastest halo made by bungie, was completely terrible overall (Ill admit it does STILL have the best forge but that useless if the game plain sucks anyways).

    For the record Bungie didnt particularly WANT to make halo reach, it was just part of that contract.

    I think even mentioning halo in the article was an erroneous thing to do. Its clear to me at least that bungie was and had been tired of making halo games for a while. Im excited to play this game, and to see if bungie actually does live up to the potential it has.

    I wonder if they will port this to the PC in the future.

    There is artistic style and then the subject/content of the piece of work.
    In this trailer it looks like the style has changed slightly but the content is similar. At least the subject of Picassos paintings isn't always a vase of sunflowers.
     
  8. Cool, so when will this new skin pack for halo be available?
