It would be hard to make a Reach game for only one day anyway.

Yes, I'm aware of this hierarchy. Still doesn't change the fact that they disregarded the first released Halo canon. The book that officially established the Halo universe. There is a difference between retcons and just being ignorant. I don't mind them retconning the series, I do mind them claiming to have made a game that follows established canon and it not being so


Well... That would be Halo, the game :)

Theres a few claims that the Fal of Reach novel was supposed to be released after the game hit... Kinda like the third book in the forerunner trilogy as it will reveal some in-game spoilers. (The AI is already known though >.> ) hopefully will see one of the mega size halos from the forerunner civil war.

Don't know about you guys, but Halo 4 made me want to replay the original, again (for probably over 50th time all the way through with my brother) though now we get achievements!

I actually like how they've released all parts of canon from the Halo trilogy (aka games+novels) in chronological order. It wasn't till Contact Harvest they broke that chain. Although won't say that the book was bad merely because they decided to make books that talked about prior to the events of Reach. I don't know what changed but someone somewhere stopped caring.

New Halo TV ad airing at half-time in the England/France match. Mostly E3 trailer stuff, but also new live action footage of Master Chief

I've never really been a Halo fan to be honest, but I have to say when I saw the Halo 4 trailer at E3 I was impressed. I played Halo 3 and Halo Reach and enjoyed those, but I'm really intrigued by the story of Cortana in Halo 4.

This week's Halo bulletin includes details on achievements and samples of the OST.

Spoilers in achievements, be warned.

it will undoubtedly be at least OK to good, even Reach was fine, though i didn't like it that much. Wish it would be on the 720, but i'll pick it up anyway and enjoy it. but it's weird that it's a Nov release, Halos usually come out Sept/Oct.

Its been kinda split between September and November. Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo: Anniversary were released in November while Halo 3, ODST and Reach were released in September.

It's the first game in a new trilogy so we can expect to see Halo 5 and 6 on the next-gen Xbox. It looks like the SP campaign is going to be even better than Halo: Reach.

At least the video gives me confidence that they are trying to come up with something good, even if the line "taking chief out of his comfort zone" is directly contradicted by the fact they are bring Marines and Covenant back in this game.
