Curses, l was beat on starting the thread. But yes, looks incredible. Can't wait for it. Well l've got to since it's not coming until Holiday 2012. Well, at least we get a CE remake to keep us from getting impatient.
Come on its Halo, they can't mess that up as long as there are decent guns decent online and master chief is back who cares, 343 are just going to make Halo 1 with Halo Reach engine probably what could go wrong ^^ This is probably worst case scenario
I did watch Press Conference. The fact that Microsoft is pushing the Kinect so far down everyone's throats, only leads me to believe that all my favorite franchises will be invaded by Kinect. Starting with Mass Effect 3.
They can add voice recognition to it, where you can control Marines or whatever they will add. That won't be too bad. And even though some of it looked awesome, like Future Soldier, I do hope they don't add it in.
Mass Effect doesn't seem so bad. Everything you can do with Kinect in ME3 isn't something that's impossible without it. You can still choose what to say, where to move your guys, etc. It's more of an option, really.
That said, when I heard Cortana calling out for the Chief--by his NAME--I got goosebumps. Brings a whole new urgency to the trilogy's (clarify: "trilogy" referring to the first three games) last line: "Wake me when you need me."
