I couldn’t find a thread with the search function about this, but Frankie has hinted at something in the newest Bungie Weekly Update.
As far as gameplay is concerned, you can make up your own mind early next year, when we give you the chance to play the Multiplayer beta. It won’t contain all of the cool new features from the game, but it will be a nice taste of what to expect. There will be more news about that in the very near future. Anyway, we’ve enjoyed spending another year with you guys – so enjoy the break and share the season’s warmth with your friends and family. Peace (and goodwill)!
So, what are we thinking? Late January Early February? Maybe early March?
I don’t honestly care. I think that whole “Sign-up for the Beta!” thing was a hype-machine attempt, and that the beta will be open for anyone with a Gold Live Membership. Probably a Census for the ‘want’ of Halo 3…
Yep. Just like when nobody wanted Zone of the Enders until they found out that it came with a Metal Gear Solid 2 demo. Then it flew off shelves on launch day and you could find used copies (without the demo disc) pretty much the next day.
Well, one key difference between the endings of Halo 2 and R6: Vegas is that I actually cared about the story in Halo 2. I really didn’t give a shit in Vegas, so I can live with a dumb cliffhanger there.
It wasn’t really a bad ending. Like everyone else I sat there for a minute thinking “What the? That’s it? What the god damn *%&$%” but it was actually a cool ending story wise and did leave me wanting more. While at the moment I was pissed once I got over that I enjoyed it.
W00t. Just saw some Alpha Videos. Gotta say, looking good (From the grainy, pixelated BS that it shows).
Missed posting them by minutes. Sorry folks. They were on Xbox360 Fanboy and Joystiq. Don’t know Joystiq’s situation with then, but Fanboy’s were taken down.
Basically, it was a snipers and shotties match, and when you kill someone, the kill and any medals you get now pop up directly above the minimap in the bottom left. Pretty hard to tell anything else, the level was the snow level. Score screen (Mid-game) is almost exactly the same.
