I am curious if anyone in the Bungie community is holding out on Halo4

I mean, when it was first announced I was actually angry, I remember talking to Bungie staff members, and actually telling them that I though Reach should have been the last Halo game, worrying that this was the point where Microsoft would start just pumping out Halo games that did not live up to the care the Bungie put into them. However, my envisioning of Halo 4 was also a lot lower than what it looks like we are actually getting, after awhile I turned around on it, I am happy that it looks like people who care about Halo made Halo 4, and Microsoft wrote them a blank cheque. So I ask, are any of you guys saying no thanks to Halo 4? [Edited on 11.03.2012 4:01 PM PDT]

  • I'm looking forward to the game very much. Although Bungie aren't the developers, my love still remains for the franchise.

  • Since the release of Halo 2 the franchise has been a mixed bag for me. While I dislike more then a few of the choices they made, like putting the game into a more "earthier" setting and decreasing the field of vision amoung doing other things. I still sutck around because the core gameplay was still a hell of a good time. And I adapted and learned to overlook the things I found annoying which is common for me. If I have an affinity for something or the people involved I will let them get away with more, it's just plain bias. But this game, from what I've seen looks like a return to make good on some of those promises that CE made, at least in the design of the campiagn. So I'm going to rent. Because I am a skeptic and a bit of a loyalist. If it's really good and has replayability I'll buy, maybe. But to be honest I don't like being milked on DLC and I don't really care for the Multiplayer. It became outdated back in 2007 when COD 4 came out and maybe even earlier than that. TL;DR I will rent the game with an option to buy. And is it me or does Requiem look like Marathon more than Halo.

  • Bungie is getting Halo 4, and we still want to see the franchise do well. Don't abstain on our account.

  • After all the reviews and what's its lookin so far, of Course I'm getting it. Bungie put their trust 343i to deliver Halo andI believe in that trust too. ;)

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Quantam [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Deus_Ex_Machina Nope, because of the following: 1. Halo was supposed to be a trilogy (as in, ending at Halo 3), [/quote] Halo was supposed to be an RTS game on the Mac, then a 3rd person shooter, finally an FPS on the Xbox. A trilogy was never planned as far as I am aware. And Halo 3 left way too many plot points open for there [i]not[/i] to be a Halo 4. And that doesn't include the Legendary Ending. [/quote] Loose endings don't necessitate explanation. Gamers, people in general, really, seem uncomfortable basking in untold curiosities. I can't attest to the trilogy bit, but my fuzzy memories tell me its existence was implicated on many a ViDoc. Oh, and CrazzySnipe: Thanks, babe. [Edited on 11.03.2012 11:54 PM PDT]

  • I decided to pre-order Halo 4. I need a good multiplayer game for my Xbox 360 and it fits what I want.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Master Chef [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achilles1108 OHMAHGAWD!!! I miss you. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Master Chef I won't be buying it. The storyline seems interesting enough, despite my disagreements over 343's character design; however matchmaking is being turned into something that I just do not want. My gaming resources (scarce as they are nowadays) are being pooled into zombie games, Steam, and soon enough, Bungie. [/quote][/quote] :'( I hide away in my ivory tower, studying, with few pickles, but more beer. The ratio is lopsided; it is a breakfast of 3rd place finishers. Keep your inbox posted come December. Classes are out then. You bring the lasers.[/quote]I'm glad that you're mythic now; the name 'Master Chef' just evokes the very idea of mythicality. °°°

  • I want to get it because I'm really excited to find out what happens next, and I originally had high hopes for 343. But after they announced a few gameplay changes, I decided to boycott. I still have problems with Reach, and even though I really love ODST, I think Halo should have stopped at 3.

  • There are somethings I dislike about H4 but I hope I won't mind them too much. It's kind of hard to judge without playing it. No bloom and the BR coming back gets me excited for H4. I haven't been really following up with H4, which is kind of weird since I've been so crazy for every Halo game. I bought the LE and I regret it, MS is so damn shady with their marketing. I tried to cancel it but the only way I can get my money back is if I wait for the game to get here and then send it back. Since the game was shipped yesterday I'm guessing it will get here on monday and there is no way in Hell I'll send it back then. [quote]Cool Story Bro[/quote] [Edited on 11.03.2012 8:41 PM PDT]

  • Nope, because of the following: 1. Halo was supposed to be a trilogy (as in, ending at Halo 3), and, as vicerally exciting as milking a series for the same proven-to-be-enjoyable formula can be (down there, with the same desires that make people drink, do drugs, and vote Republican), it's always at the back of your mind that the series has gotten stale. Think Bleach and DBZ. 2. Watching playthroughs on Youtube is fun and, more importantly, free. 3. I have successfully sold my 360 in favor of money, free time, and membership in the PC gaming master race. [Edited on 11.03.2012 8:21 PM PDT]

  • Here is my complicated chain of thought behind the problematic relationship between Bungie, Microsoft, 343i and Bungie's baby 'Halo'. I like Halo - There is a new Halo - I will buy the new Halo. It keeps me up at night, but I think I made the right decision

  • I might, but not immediately. Once the hype wears off you can usually tell how good the game really is.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] EvilTaffyapple [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achilles1108 I am one of the people who will not be getting it.[/quote] You're not alone. I can't bring myself to buy another Halo game. Not through some dumb sense of loyalty to Bungie, but because I persoanlly feel the series should have ended with Halo 3. Good luck to 343 and Halo 4, but I can't look forward to a game I never wanted to see.[/quote] Personally, I agree with this. However, I have to get it because I have to review it. I don't intend to play much multiplayer, especially with the complete oversaturation of gimmicks they are throwing into it.

  • I won't be getting it. Graphically, it looks amazing. Unfortunately, that's all it has going for it in my eyes. The proposed story doesn't interest me, a lot of other changes make it sound like they're trying to copy CoD to me and that makes me physically ill, and then the announcement that firefight is no more in favor of Spartan Ops. SOPs sounds okay, but I really enjoyed firefight; I probably spent more time doing firefight than anything else in Reach and ODST, and now it's being removed. No thank you, 343.

  • Since I am not remotely interested in the multiplayer, I will probably wait for the last of this trilogy (or whatever it will be) to come out, drop in price, then play all three for the story. tbh, I was always a co-op campaigner first and foremost with Halo. (except Halo 2 that -blam!- was madness!)
