Hot Diggity- Halo 4?

I remember with fondness the end game credits for Halo Reach. "It's been one hell of a ride!" No more Halo (sniff).

But wait, not only is the original being remastered, but a new Halo 4 has been announced for the end of 2012.

You know they could not resist making all that money. I just wonder how good it will be compared to the original trilogy as some new innovation in game play, some new compelling story, or just a grab to suck more money out of Halo fans? It remains to be seen.

I do believe M$ want another Halo related game each year... Though that is reading between the lines...

Bleh, "I gave up the fight" after Halo 2. That ending soured things for me. Tried Halo 3 and it seemed ancient. The pacing, gameplay, graphics, story.
I'll get that Halo 1 remake in a heartbeat. But Halo 4 and the rest of this "new trilogy"? No sir.

After a while, "been there, done that" comes into play. The threshold varies with individuals.

Give me Halo: Anniversary, I have pitched a tent like that over a game in years.

Co-op over Xbox Live? Thank you!

My reaction to Halo 4 was.. "Might be worth picking up"

It's a new Halo game. I'll definitely play it! It's such a long way away though, so right now I'm looking more forward to Halo Anniversary.

Btw anyone who wants to play some Reach or H3, my Gamertag is: Mr_Lotso.

Halo 4 should be worth buying, but I don't know how they can top reach. I'm more excited about the remake. I'll probably buy 4 just to keep up with the multiplayer stuff on live. I hope 4 is better than 3 though. Anything I did with 3 was pretty much a collective meh. 343 has a heck of a legacy to live up to, especially after Reach, so I'm interested to see what comes of it.

With it's great vibes, Halo is rebootable as long as they come up with something different. How many times can you fight the covenant?

The flood in Halo3 is fantastic. It's what has given Halo an edge from the start.
