DEA’s first video: Dust vs Echoes

Guys, if you only watch one Halo video today, make it this one. Woaf and Mr Tomsk duel it out in a 1v1 Neutral flag match, and what results is as awesome as their podcast. Great stuff.



Ch.1 Land Grab and Ch. 2 Sniper Alley Screenshots

Thanks to Dust and Echoes for giving me the heads up on which mission is which in the latest screenshots and video from 343. Some of these pics were in an earlier post, but there are some new ones in there as well.

Here you can watch a short trailer for these two missions as well.


Halo 4 thoughts and Interview with Frank O’Connor from The Little English Halo Blog

Flawless Cowboy got his hands on Halo 4 at the, Euro Gamer Expo in London and shares his thoughts on CTF, Spartan Ops, and the new Infection in his latest post. Read it here.

He also got to interview Frankie (at a bar no less) and the answers he received went a long way to relieving some of my fears for SpOps.

As was said in the first article, if all you do in SpOps is run around pushing buttons and holding positions with no meaningful objective, this mode is doomed to go the way of Firefight and Invasion. Still fun, but really disappointing and repetitive.

What will set Ops apart from anything that has come before, is the story aspect. The water cooler moment that 343 keeps heralding. Flawless Cowboy was honest with Frankie and said that he didn’t feel that at all. I have to think that the moving, engaging story bits are being kept out until release. This way we avoid spoilers, but still get a feel for how the mode will play.

In Frank we trust.

More Halo 4 Renders – Heavy Vehicles and Assasinations

Here are a few more renders from 343, can’t wait to drive the Mantis!!

New Halo 4 Screenshots – Campaign *POSSIBLE SPOILERS*

Some new screenshots from the campaign here. I don’t think there is really anything spoilerish in them, but we all have our own definition of what a spoiler is, so *SPOILERS* may follow!!

I can hardly believe that some of these shots are from actual in game action. they almost look like pre-renderedĀ cinematics! We get a good look at the Chief, Lasky and Palmer all working together, a good pic of Del Rio (so angry) and not a few action shots!

These screenshots show some first-person action aboard the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn, as well as some new areas that await you in Halo 4’s Infinity mission, which fans may remember from the E3 2012 Halo 4 stage demo.
