Where is the gamplay video? Or are cut scenes rendered with the in game engine considered gameplay now? Bunge still might release the game at a much lower resolution than what is shown there, if the game isn't rendered in 720p at a bare minimum that will be pretty lame.

We don't have gameplay yet, but the trailer released is the showcase for the engine. Bungie can do a lot of things but that's why we can compare in one thread. As more information, screenshots and videos come out.

Although I'd love to see the game story in parallel to the book, I am not really sure after that cut scene/engine demo. There are a lot of things that don't fit in the story as I know in the book.

It would be pretty cool if you got to witness like a ship-to-ship battle while Reach is being bombarded, kind of like a tragic scene where you know you're going to lose and the only choice is to flee.

Maybe a couple months before its released it would be better to make one, but not now.

It is a couple of months. We are getting BETA in Spring that we already got the codes for with ODST.

And there, I took out OFFICIAL from the name of the thread.. does that make anything better now? Or should I not talk about Halo Reach at all, up until a month before it's release? :rolleyes:

My two pence: BETA or Official game threads shouldn't be allowed until one month before confirmed release date.

Although, it's quite annoying when people post a new thread just to point out that the vicar who married the sound designer and secretary of X Game Developer has had a cold cup of coffee from Starbucks.

summary: Meh

<<snipped>>

Getting back to the game, in a interview about the video, I forget who, but it was said that what they are showing is pretty much how it'll look at gameplay time, so that's very close to the level of gfx we should expect unless the beta shows us otherwise.

I have my doubts :/ I think the graphics will suck a bit - mostly the AA stuff. Overall I am not very sure of the "look" of the game. It's not very "Halo".

Halo games never looked top notch. I don't really mind though. :)

Well it looks more like MW2 style of graphics but in Halo universe. And if that's the case, I totally approve. It's more gritty, down the earth, soldier/army feel which Reach is about. I just hope they take away all the over-colored mess it was before. It just felt too cartoonish. This one feels more real.

This week's BWU confirmed that the trailer had extra AA applied (if anyone had doubts.)

They also mention that there will be flood of new content including information about many questions raised by the trailer "soon" ~ 2nd week of January when some unnamed magazines hit the stands.

Whew, just uploaded 28 screenshots for the upcoming Reach cover stories. You'll see them in a few weeks!

Well, touching up trailers and screenshots shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone, seems like everyone does it these days.

Though, I am really excited to see some real gameplay or some proper screenshots as I'm really curious about the game but I have so many doubts.

Obviously it will.. maybe not 100% of everything but the fact they advertise it as "Falls 2010" it will be about what happens to Reach planet as described in the book and events that happened there. In Halo 3 ODST they yell in one of the missions "It's Reach all over again". So Reach is definitely going to fall in the game which will show the death of all Spartans but Master Chief who was dispatched to the secret mission leading to Halo 1. My thoughts at least.

Ummm they didn't all die...Kelly is on the Pillar injured, and another squad went underground and survived.

Well, ofc they do but they were pretty clear that the trailer shown was from ingame in the sense that it's not fully prerendered video but the game engine. Having a bit more AA in those is doable without any real hit to performance so why not use it? Either way I think the game will be a good solid improvment over Halo 3 and ODST on the gfx front. ODST being more of a halo3 expansion didn't really change much.

Yah.. but i'm guessing they will make it so.. so it feels super heroic somehow and Master Chief will become the new hope leading to Halo 1.

I think the revamp looks good but it's still a bit generic - hopefully they'll add their own stylistic tweaks to it to make it stand out a bit.

But that is what Halo is... Games shouldn't be so absolutely based in reality because they are supposedly an escape from it. Halo's approach to color and world design is one of my favorites. I don't mind a grittier feel, but MW/COD are in no way at the top of my list of artistic prowess. They look real because they are about real things. Halo isn't.

Hmm Game Informer put 'The new tech' as headline...

Shouldn't that be 'The old tech', as it's set in the past... the future past... :p
