Bungie Weekly Update

A light update this week, but with heavy news about stuff that's happening next week, which, coincidentally is the birthday of the original Halo for Xbox. Coincidence? Nothing is a coincidence.

  • I actually joined the Bungie site just to find out what happened to Halo2's Swat, Actionsack, Multi-team and Carnage... and the fact that this thread is a month old and the last comment was weeks ago kinda leads me to believe that this comment won't be read - but here goes anyway.. First and foremost, I really wanted to voice my opinion about the vitoed gametypes... The four that were taken away, were the only four I've played in the last 5 months. Swat only fairly recently became ranked, and to take it away again is very disappointing. Not only was it popular, but it was by far the biggest transition awhen it came to how people played. It is a devistating loss for me, as, without those gametypes... I actually do not find myself with a reason to play online anymore. (Which is even more devistating when you consider that Halo2 is the ONLY reason why I bought an XBOX Live subscription in the first place.) I am thoroughly disappointed, and sad that those game types are now gone. I can only hope that they'll make their return before my Live subscription runs out in April... otherwise, I doubt I'll renew it since it is not likely I'll get an XBOX 360 and Live subscription just for Halo3. Dispite the last statement made above, I think a female voiceover options for the spartans would be awesome in Halo3. So thumbs up to that..

  • Well you know that you don't have to be such a butt about it, people are just concerned. And I DID read Frankie's post.

  • Gosh, it's amazing that so many of you people didn't actually read Frankie's post. The proposal was to include a female voice for Spartans in multi-player mode. Not to give players the option to change Master Chief's voice to a woman's voice. Female voice option for Spartans is for multi-player mode, not campaign mode. How many times should I repeat it for people to understand the proposal by Bungie? The proposed female voice option for Spartans is for multi-player mode, not campaign mode. Your precious Master Chief's voice will remain as is. The proposed female voice option for Spartans is for multi-player mode, not campaign mode. Your precious Master Chief's voice will remain as is.

  • Well first of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY HALO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That aside I guess a female cheif is ok, as long as its on muiltiplayer...... No offense of course to the female halo players but if campign is changed then it would be very irritating it would change the whole game. As I say nothing hotter than a girl with a gun!!!

  • Hmm...In Campaign...There should be NO choice on the voices...Master Chief all the way. But Multiplayer would be fine. The game is about Master Chief, not some female Spartan. I myself being a girl, I really don't mind but the Campaign is the part that should stay the same. [Edited on 11/16/2006]

  • I've got something to say. Scanario: Female voice: Sniper in the- Male voice: Aargh! It's not right. The idea of incorporating a female voice actress is a [i]smart[/i] move. However, I also see the following as a possibility: Male chump: -blam!- you, you ca- Female voice: Gahh! Heh heh heh. win-lose situation. Death throes are great in Halo 2. Not a common topic, but I'm sure there are a number of players who appreciate it. A reasonable option for cluing in teammates that something bad has happened, rather than sudden silence, which could be any random number of things. I find it slightly sexist that females are forced to have a male death cry. But I guess I wasn't asked. But with such a limit, light red armor might as well be removed. (oh no! not that!)

  • I think Bungie needs to create multiplayer maps that are representation of major cities around the world obliterated by the covenant. (Not NYC) possibly Seattle though, wow dissing my own city :( also another idea for multiplayer is to have waves of covenant attack you during the match. have like the offensive team on ctf be attacked by waves, forcing them to keep someone back at their base. it would add a different type of game play element, changing the strategy a lot. not only do you have to capture your flag, but you have to protect your base from being pwned by the convenant. It would make multiplayer seem like we were fighting eachother in a real time battle. But, there should be an option to turn off bots so we can have good ole fashion showdowns.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Frankie So demo he did. The water tech is proprietary, Hao and his boyz created it especially for Halo 3, after looking at the varying ways water is used in other games. In some games, it’s purely eye-candy and in others, it’s fully interactive. In Halo 3, it’s somewhere betwixt the two. Here’s what ours will have, should it be implemented correctly (I always put these , IF caveats in here). It will look like water. If the waves reach a certain height, frequency and turbidity, foam (or other effects) will appear on its surface. It will of course have waves and ripples. But the cool part for me, was the fact that objects passing through it will create their own wake. It’s hardly an invention, since I distinctly remember seeing that in like Baldur’s Gate 2: Dark Alliance, but this looks very real and it’s going to look SWEET in levels like Valhalla when four or five vehicles go tear-assing through the river. The water is both translucent and reflective, so if you look from a distance, you’ll see a realtime reflection of the sky. If you’re up close, you’ll see whatever’s under the water. Right now it looks amazing, but to Hao’s point, it’s just programmer art. When an artist gets to play with it, this will be world-class agua. Can you sense how obsessed I am with video game water yet?[/quote] I <3 U Bungie O_0 *Drool*

  • I could deal with a female spartan in multiplayer, but what relevance would one have in the campaign if the option wasn't offered in the previous halo duo. Why was this whole thing proposed in the first place?

  • I'm actually hoping that we get BOTH female and male grunts and that they procreate in some sort of ritual dance and you've got to tend their garden and keep them happy all day long fa-la-la-la oh wait a second, wrong game. Ass kicking female spartans? Absofreakinglutely. Please finesse the animations though! I mean, honestly. There should be more variation on melees, and reloads. And let the characters lean a little - loosen up their rigging a little, so that there's more variation with posture, etc. - especially when they're in transition. MC needs to loosen up a little. He walks like this guy I know who's such a tightwad. Also, who says there needs to be a 1-1 relationship between player POV animations and how they look to other players? Does the right foot always need to know what the left foot is doing? Is MthdDirector crazy. Haha.

  • Dude, like i said before, if it ISN'T MASTER CHEIF and another spartan that has a non-gender specefic name, then it would be okay to choose. Do you really think bungie would be stupid enough to just change master cheifs voice? Cmon! give them more credit! open your mind to the possibilibilities of HALO.

  • I think the female voice may be cool for the women out there but i think it would kind of ruin the story line. A female voice in multiplayer may be alright but in the story it may ruin it. I think in halo 3 multiplayer u could be more than just the spartan or elite, Being a marine or a brute may be cool. I also think it would be cool if u could use the camoflauge for the elite or the flash light for the spartan. It may add more strategy to the game. For example u could use camo while entering the base to capture the flag and get the flag being undetected. And in halo 3 if there was the ability to be a human or an elite i think it would be cool to also have a specail ability for them. Maybe the brutes could run fast for a certain amount of time and for the marines u could maybe have like night vision or somethin. In campaign i always see them with cool gadgets on their helmets. In halo 2 i was dissapointed that there was no way of driving the shadow fehicle that u carry all those covenant. Another cool feature for halo 3 would be to lie down. I think it might be fun in halo 3 if there was like a transport vehicl that had no gun but could hole like 8 people and u could just dump the people out at the base and capture the flag. A peak or lean feature would be better too, i hate being pinned down, wounded, and hiding with the sniper rifle. While hiding i would always love to be able to peak around the corner to snipe the person shooting me instead of exposing my whole body to try and get them. I think it would also be cool if u could throw boxes or the explosive fusion cores. In halo 2 it always takes me so long to move a small box with the sword, i think it would be more fun to be able to throw the boxes or fusion cores at people. U could also place the fusion core in a certain spot in the base that way when some one comes in u could use it as a trap.

  • In Halo3 I think u should be able to dual weild a ball or a flag or a bomb. I was playing Halo 2 in action sack last night. One of the games were balltackular and i thought it would have been cool if i could dual weild the ball to get double time or have the ball and then dual weild a weapon that way i would have more defense. Just imagine how much funner it would be if u could have an Smg and a flag at the same time. I also think it would add a little bit more strategy to the game. For example if ur spawn weapon was a battle rifle, u could get the flag person to hold a plasma pistol. They could shoot the people with their plasma pistol while the person with the battle rifle shot the other people in the head. It might add a little bit of ease for capturing the flag. The other day i got really angry because i tied 3 flag games in a row. If u had an smg or a dual weilded weapon it might be easier to get the falg back to the base. I also think u should still be able to dual weild while being in a warthog. I hate have the perfect dual combo and then having ot drop it to get a ride. Anyways i can't wait till halo 3 comes out but i have to get my 360 first.

  • Yeah, I agree on most parts, the question seems to reveal something though. Male or female voice? Does this mean we won't be playing as the Master Chief? You just could not change MCs voice 3 games in, but if there was a new charecter, who had a non-gender specefic name , then it would be up to the player to decide and it would open up some interesting game options. I would be totally cool with this, just don't change the MCs voice... that would ruin the story for me, and probably many others too. Remember in the second matrix movie, the oracle was a different actor because the first one had died? That sucked and messed up the story for me (not that I could follow it well anyway). Whatever Bungie decides I will be cool with it. They have really gained my trust and even if the game is different than before, I am sure it will kick a$$.

  • I think a female spartan voice would be awesome, but you guys should totally get a female spartan character model to go with it. Maybe like the model from DOA4??? I have a few chicks on my friends list all decked out in pink and purple armor that I know would sport the female spartan. Cheers!
