Getting excited for Halo 4 now...

Really looking forward to the 'Dawn' episodes. Its a great tactic to build up to the release of the game (provided they are good of course!)

UPDATE:

Available to watch now

What are your thoughts on Forward Unto Dawn? The first two eps haven't exactly blown me away, I don't really like any of the characters! Especially that black lady squad leader. She just doesn't fit that role at all. Hopefully it'll pick up when the Covenant and the Chief show up. I haven't watched that trailer yet, will get it on Waypoint when I'm home.

Anyone ordered the LE? Bothered that the specialisations aren't that exclusive any more? Seems to have caused a shit storm over at the Halo forums but then that place is always full of teen rage.

The trailer is excellent Chief - well worth a watch.

I actually really like the slow build up of the first 2 episodes - they are really well done although the main character annoyed me a few times. 343 industries are releasing an episode weekly and I have read that the full 90 minute 'compilation' will be released towards the end of the year. I like it although I think like you say - it all depends if all hell breaks loose once Chief and Covenant show up AND its done well...

I have ordered the LE from Shopto.net (65 I think) and have cancelled a few other pre-orders as this is the one I am most excited for!

Yeah, I've got the LE on order, but this was mainly for the season pass/map packs. Not all that fussed about the specialisations: I'm going to get killed by everyone regardless...

Yeah I'll join up for that too.

Ordered the LE from HMV mainly for the season pass and sweet box set. Specialisations don't come into play until you get to max rank anyway so its not such of big issue for me, with my play hours it's gonna take me an age to get there anyway. Booked the 7th, 8th and 9th off work so i can smash the campaign on legendary with some super late nights.

Looking forward to next weeks ep, looks like John is gonna make an appearance.

That was a decent episode and the Scanned trailer was good too.

I'm off the 5th, 6th & 7th so hopefully it gets here a day early.

Saw the first three eps of Forward Unto Dawn last night, and they're pretty good. For some reason I thought the main kid was Anton Yelchin for some reason That gameplay trailer is awesome also.

The four years of stasis have brought more than just the decline of Master Chief's only friend. Modern Warfare's influence has somehow seeped into Halo's feel and aesthetic. It's in the beginning, as you haul yourself up an elevator shaft on the crumbling Forward Unto Dawn ship, dodging incoming projectiles with QTE-lite inputs. It's in Master Chief's iconic suit, now Teflon-coated like Sam Fisher ready for a night on the tiles. It's in his weight, still unmistakeably floaty when you jump but heavy-footed when you run. It's in the tactical packages dropped into multiplayer when you score the requisite kill streak, and in the perks and customisable dog-tags: all the borrowed trappings of Infinity Ward's success added to the Halo recipe. It is, most obviously, in the control scheme, which for the first time allows you to discard your Halo muscle memory in favour of Modern Warfare's, aiming down the iron sights with a squeeze of the left trigger.

I suppose they've got to move with the times though. I don't mind most of the changes, the one thing that does bother me a tad is the unlocking of weapons. This works well in COD or Battlefield where there's a wealth of weapons, several types of each category (sniper, shotgun SMG etc.) but Halo doesn't have that. It's going to have 3 in each category at most.

It makes it kind of pointless and feels tacked on to please the ADD crowd with a new virtual gold star every 5 minutes.

Apart from that, bring it on. Really looking forward to the campaign.
