: Bungie to Announce New Halo Game Soon
: SPRTN SnprSlick September 20, 2008, 11:48:42 AM
The New Halo 'Game' Trailer has been released.

It will be a Campaign addon for Halo 3. It will be released on January 6th, 2009.

According to the trailer, you might be taking the standpoint of an ODST 'Helljumper'.

Be sure to check out the trailer on the net or on the XBL marketplace.


With their announcement being canned at the last minute during E3. The SuperIntendant has returned. What does that mean? Well Luke Smith of Bungie put it eloquently.
Earlier this summer, my bipolar, crazy landlord told me, "The night is darkest just before the dawn."
Dawn is about to break.

That message was posted on Thursday, September 18th. The SuperIntendent made his reappearance on Saturday, September 20th.

First off Lukems is a complete jack off, secondly they have already announced their intentions for future halo titles including H4 although it is being made by a different studio, along with a gears of war-esque over the shoulder shooter
No. Bungie is making more Halo games. This announcement is of a Halo game that BUNGIE is developing. Don Mattrick said they canned Bungie's new Halo game announcement at E3.

You are fueling your post via rumors. It has not been officially announced what the gameplay will be. They have announced, however, there are more than 3 games being worked on by several different companies.

No, Halo 3 is actually a very solid game. The only thing wrong with it was that it wasn't the second coming of Jesus.

That's not what the hardcore fans say.


And that's kinda the problem - I've yet to see a game get REALLY big - then that same group be able to be happy with the next version of the game.  They've gotten too used to the way it is, and would want simply new 'map packs' - and not a whole new version.

Also - H3 was too short.  So 2 strikes!  lol

Well then, I was once a 'hardcore' fan. Because when Halo 3 first came out, I had already beaten it 3 days before. I had a rank 40 the day before the game came out. And after that, I thought Halo 3 sucked. Then I cam to realize. It wasn't a complete rennovation to the Halo franchise. I realized oh geez this game is horrible.

Later on, I moved to Call of Duty 4. Loved the game, still do. I started playing Halo again recently, and it isn't half bad. I had realized that I didnt like it because:
A: I didn't know the maps very well.
B. The gameplay was too familiar.
C: It wasn't as groundbreaking as Halo 2.


C is the major point. Halo 2 put XBOX on the MAP with its XBOX Live functionality. I felt like I was playing a lot of the same.

Halo 3's hype got to it. Nobody expected less than the second coming...
Unfortunately, Halo 3 isn't Jesus.....

I'm afraid I have to agree with SPRTN. Halo 3 is definitely not one of the most flawed games of all time. In fact the reason that I believe people hate it so much is because of the fact that the gameplay has now been reduced to the most solid form, making less skilled players able to achieve more success. Halo 3 may not be as amazing as we would all want it to be, but SPRTN is right, just because a game's franchise is as fluential to the market as Halo it does not mean it is instantly going to melt your face with happiness. IF HALO 3 CAME OUT THE SAME AS THE REST OF THE GAMES we would all be crying about how little it has changed and instead of saying the franchise is 'dieing' the rumors would be infecting people's minds of how the halo series is going 'nowhere'. The facts are there, halo definitely isn't dieing as a franchise, obviously seeing as the game sold out more copies than any other game in the first week. Halo 3 was actually so successful that if you do your research you will realize it even impacted the box office sales for the month it came out, even spreading into the next month minutely.
My point is this, I do not feel like im in heaven when I play Halo 3 and probably many others don't either, but that does not change the fact that Halo 2 and Halo 3 both have the best internet playability that I have ever seen.. and trust me I have cycled through A LOT of games.

This is to bigsprtn whatever and gamer whoever you are person



Halo 3 is flawed broken and ultimately a horrible game by competitive standards, anyone who play h2 or h1 competitively knows this and believes it completely. The game was n00bed down to the point that the competitive side of it is lacking to say the least, bungie completely ignored the competitive community and made a game for casual gamers not HxC gamers and thats fine its their game their franchise they have the right to do as the feel pleased. I do not expect either of you to understand this bc neither of you are from that community. you have to realize that the complaints are fromt he competitive community.


Now to keep you from posting some half brained nonsense about how you are apart of the competitive community from past halo titles let me go ahead and make a list of people who i will hear arguments from concerning the competitive nature of previous titles compared to h3.

Wow, what a flame.
You say I am not a competitive gamer? I played on a team that went to MLG Orlando. We went 2-2.
After returning from that, I realized that pro gaming isn't exactly something I was interested in and in my opinion probably one of the stupidest things that people consider a sport.

I went back to my love of baseball and am currently a college and mlb prospect. While gaming may be your life, it isn't mine, and if you chose not to understand that's perfectly fine with me.

But, saying they didn't cater to the Competitive gamer is completely and utterly false. Bungie is constantly attending major MLG tournaments and asking them what they would like to see. They made an MLG playlist because the players requested it. They made a map builder so MLG could build the maps to their liking. They changed weapon balances to make the game feel fresh but retain a retro feel.

However, being as arrogant as you are, and not listening to other's opinions, I can see why you have the opinion you do. You see what you want to see, you understand what you want to understand. So be it.

Never did I say I was a pro. I played with the TW Cyclones at MLG Orlando.

I also never said you didnt have a life. But from my understanding gaming is your life, like baseball is mine. Straight after my Sophmore year was completed I was approached by several D1 colleges. (OU, OSU, Stanford, and Arkansas). As well as some JuCos. (NOC, Rogers, and KCCC). As if college wasn't enough, there were 2 pro teams. (Rangers, and the Rockies). I have two years to go. But enough bragging.

What school did you go to? I'm pretty sure you don't get a contract to go to college.

Hes not saying that youre not a competitive gamer....hes listing the people that were actually "known" during the h2 days; in which would agree that h3 is garbage. You can say that Bungie is doing everything they can for the mlg players but answer these questions for me.

1. Why isnt the br spread still consistent, the game has been out for basically a year and they still havent fixed it.
    this has allowed many of these "08" kids actually be able to "out br" many of the vets around here. While I agree that the "auto aim" is reduced on h3; the br isnt a consistent 4 shot(ever had your reticle on someones head the whole time and yet some of the bullets dont register? Some may say lag or some of you will say lolzwtfucantbrRoflrofl but when this begins to happen on LAN what does one say?)

2. The melee system is still complete utter crap even after a patch

once again they still cater to the "08" kids.....they dont reward the person who melee'd first there solution is "you both pressed the melee, you both die"

3.They continue to make EXTREMELY flawed remakes of the old maps(exclude cold storage) and forgot(or dont want) to make an EXACT replica of midship

this speaks for itself....some of you will say that bungie plans to make it in the future but seriously ask yourself this....DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK THEY WILL MAKE AN EXACT REPLICA OF IT?  No. They will probably add something dumb like man cannons from car 3 to pink 3 or something.

4.yes i do agree with you that halo is alot of these kids lives
yes some people here do choose to play halo all day and have yet to go pro and although pro status is 1-16, you dont get sh.t if youre 9-16, some of you will say"OMGLOLERCOPTERS IM GUNNNA GIT SPONZORED!!11ONEONE" but the truth is many of the pros that make 9-16 still get jack sh.t and some of them have even posted on the mlg forums complaining....all they get is 300 dollars for the plane ticket to get there thats it according to some old pros.

Either way, it doesnt matter to me, i have 2 jobs and go to college and STILL %$%# ON KIDS so if any of you think about saying anything take a deep look at yourself and ask Do i play halo more then i get "play " with girls? some of you are too young to know what getting "play" is but either way if halo has prevented the opposite sex from being attracted to you;(YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) then maybe it isnt in your best interest.

This is a completely legitimate post. I applaud you for making a post without the "I am better than you so your opinion does not matter" attitude. Your points are legitimate and precise. They aren't "What you say is wrong because I've never heard of you".

When it comes down to the BR. Each bullet is actual geometry. Unlike Halo 3 it isn't a scanshot. In other words if your reticle is on it, doesn't mean it will be hit. You have to lead your shots a little bit. If you think like Halo 2, the reticle turns red, you shoot, you kill. It isnt the same way. You have to make each individual projectile hit the individual. This has been explained by Bungie already.

When it comes to Melee. It is a tad bit realistic. Say you have two people punching each other at nearly the same time. the first person strikes. The person is knocked out but the punch goes through. I know it's quite a bit of a stretch. But I doubt the melee system will ever be fixed.

I hate when people try to make this argument. If you REALLY want to play that map so bad, go play Halo 2. Blackout and Avalanche were changed due to balance reasoning. Bungie really has no reason to remake old maps. Be happy for what you have I suppose. The best version of a map is the original.

And point 4.
Haha, well put.

ya you wont see me post that im better then someone cause i quite frankly dont need to....but people that say theyre the best while they havent played everyone coughcoughgodmodecough ough are actually quite funny.

Im sorry but i seriously dont feel that someone close range should require me to lead my shots ON LAN
As much as i out br kids , i still will complain about the netcode of the br

Ya you may continue to hate when kids complain about the maps but THEY CONTINUE TO REMAKE MAPS WITHOUT MIDSHIP.....which was like the best one....

When it comes down to the BR. Each bullet is actual geometry. Unlike Halo 3 it isn't a scanshot. In other words if your reticle is on it, doesn't mean it will be hit. You have to lead your shots a little bit. If you think like Halo 2, the reticle turns red, you shoot, you kill. It isnt the same way. You have to make each individual projectile hit the individual. This has been explained by Bungie already.

Leading your shots... I have no problem with... But your bullets, go nowhere near where your reticle is, and sometimes... they dont even register.   When your playing and shooting the BR, keep an eye on your bullets... you will actually have bullets put back into your clip, because the game just plain doesnt register them.

You were sooooooo good and yet not one person on this forum knows you at all, nor has ever heard of you? Your prob right your def a pro gamer. Or competitive or whatever you want to call it?

Oh and you play baseball and your real good? Awesome man congrats, check yourself before you start talking trash though I was recruited by 27 schools got offered a contract out of high school and played Division 1 baseball. But your probably right i wouldnt have a clue what it is to have a life.

Never did I say I was a pro. I played with the TW Cyclones at MLG Orlando.

I also never said you didnt have a life. But from my understanding gaming is your life, like baseball is mine. Straight after my Sophmore year was completed I was approached by several D1 colleges. (OU, OSU, Stanford, and Arkansas). As well as some JuCos. (NOC, Rogers, and KCCC). As if college wasn't enough, there were 2 pro teams. (Rangers, and the Rockies). I have two years to go. But enough bragging.

What school did you go to? I'm pretty sure you don't get a contract to go to college.

I went to duncan and i got offered a contract to play ball and forego college

Which comes to the conclusion of, Br, And magnum. Sure the br can shoot, But not as direct and Secure as an Magnum. But thats getting off on another topic and should be saved for another time, xD

I played it alot but it was at a friends house. I really love skating games. I was, if I do say so myself, incredible at Tony Hawk. I would play kids online and do score attack or whatever it was called and I would never let the game finish because I would just string moves together for eons.

I actually did play with tech decks when I was in middle school rofl. I had just so many.

First of all I just turned eighteen yesterday so im technically an adult.  :) Second of all I was unaware by how official X A seems just by scanning these forums that such stomping and arrogant flaming was allowed on a family oriented forum? Oh and third of all before you start blurting out more ignorant disses my way, I am getting married June 16, therefore I am not going to even bother with this 2nd grade "im cooler with girls than you are" crap.

It's only an opinion and you didn't even look at the facts. Oh and by the way guess what? Don't mean to upset you but it turns out people have to make money and although I really detest the fact that Halo has turned into a casual gamer atmosphere, it just so happens that there are a lot more casual gamers than proffesional gamers out there. ( I know it's shocking  :o ) Well most of all I could bother to argue with all the points that your replies have made, BUT it turns out there haven't been any points... I came here to see a good intellectual argument and I seriously got
take a deep look at yourself and ask Do i play halo more then i get "play " with girls? some of you are too young to know what getting "play" is but either way if halo has prevented the opposite sex from being attracted to you;(YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) then maybe it isnt in your best interest.
(Oh and by the way my feance loves to watch me play video games.. maybe you should just get over your ignorance..)

All in all, I do not really see myself replying to your insults. Sorry maybe I just joined this forum and haven't had enough time in the past to go play at tournaments THAT I DID NOT EVEN KNOW ABOUT, but once again I apologize for just joining this forum. Your right maybe I shouldn't express the fact that I was born on this earth just like you all, presented with a flyer to join the friendly community of Oklahoma gamers, and I guess I was stupid enough to, in a non-assaulting way, give you my opinion. I feel horrible now. I guess besides the fact I have already been accepted into OSU through an honors program to get my doctorine in three different degrees, I am obviously getting married in less than a year, and I have respectfuly worked for my own money for years in order to pay for the cost of living, your right I have no life and should prevent 'posting some half brained nonsense'.

WHAT DID I DO?!

I like Halo 2 and 3, doesn't that give me a pass [email protected]


When it comes to modding - there are MODS for that.  If you don't feel something is being paid attention to - PLEASE use the channels setup to take care of that.  PM a mod, use the alert adminstration link, etc.

As for this thread - several new members are seemingly causing problems no matter what - the site is open to everyone, and if they keep to an e for everyone language - what can we do? If we are missing guidelines in our Code of Conduct - please post suggestions on what to add so we can review that next meeting and add them.

So - if we aren't doing something right, let us know.  If we need to add something else to follow, let us know.


The problem is - there are REALLY STRONG FEELINGS - wrapped up in self worth, Halo 2 and 3, and online communication.  Let's also be clear - I don't think most of you would be this way to each others faces :) The fact that several will never ever show up to a tournament or gathering of gamers gives them the "freedom" to get away with that.  It's a sad fact of the internet.

As for anything I do - online is the same as off.  R3ligion is much the same lol, fair warning.  He's more invested in Halo talk, and frankly - ALL OF YOU NEED TO SETTLE EGO DISPUTES AT TOURNAMENTS - and not drag things onto forums where it can become unhealthy.

We are all people.  We all have WAY MORE IN COMMON than difference, let's learn to love, and not flame each other -_-

Another note - forums are drama waiting to happen - because people use them.  I know you may thing your good at a game - but forums aren't where to prove that, tournaments are.  If your new and post that your the best or that your 'pro' - your liable to get heckled - because it's the STANDARD of the internet to see that, and deal with it accordingly.  It happened for years on Soul Calibur forums - Oklahoma and Halo or whatever - is just like everywhere else - fair warning in your internet travels :)


And are you saying all I do is scan and stomp? lol.  Moderators have the tough job on the forums.  I'm not as active on the forums - because I meet with business owners, setup events, get volunteering coordinated, actively advertise for OKgamers in person, online, etc.  I'm sorry if you feel I didn't step in and mod something, etc - but really we are a staff of volunteers - and the mods that are in place have my trust on these matters.  R3ligion might get a bit uptight on issues and let off some steam - but usually within guidelines.  And to be frank?  Mods and Staff Leads have pulled through and done WAY MORE for this site and it's efforts than any random forum user that I know of - I guess if I give them credit - it's because they help gamers, even when those gamers are mocking or misjudging them.  If we need change?  The staff is an OPEN community - join us and be that change.

X A I was just making a point and I meant that everything I have seen you do is very clean cut and nicely set up. So completely the opposite from you understood my post as  ;) . I would never insult this forum and the Okgamers community you have created here, but about the stomping and flaming, that was directed not towards constructive critisism. Believe me I can always accept drama and arguements, that was the only point of me reposting  :) . My total overview of this arguement shadows the statement that TH3 R3LIGION made of the only people that can talk about the playability of a game on a community forum. Anything stated would make no difference to me personaly, except for the fact that after reading many of your official statement posts and realizing that R3LIGION is a solid part of this forum it was a little unsettling to see him strike down new members.
AGAIN IF YOU ARE NOT ON THAT LIST YOUR OPINION DOES NOT MATTER IN THIS FORUM AS IT PERTAINS TO THE COMPETITIVE ASPECT OF HALO
See actually just like many others I just found this forum very recently and I was pretty excited. I have been a member for about two weeks and quite frankly the only tournaments I ever attended were from a casual and tournament gaming center that closed down about four or five years ago. So see I seriously had no idea until recently that there even were any kind of events, as an Oklahoman community, held. Im not meaning to criticize at all so don't take my next statement offensively X A, but I just personaly believe it to be a much easier force if members of high stature didn't put any kind of typed or verbal limitations, even if personal, on who's opinion would matter  :-\ .
Actually it has taken the full past two weeks of being a member to completely review all of your official ruling posts for OKGamers and I was soon going to ask you about the aspect of me and my feance gaining volunteer hours for OSU through your community. I know this could be asked in a personal message, but im just adding a little something to jab at the point that I would rather be flamed and stomped by anyone on a forum or in life than to be attemptedly restricted.  ;D
Also, trust me I do greatly realize the fact that I am very new and probably nobody has ever heard of me from Oklahoma, but im just asking for veterans to rather call me a n00b than to try limit my opinion. I even realize that as I am brand new to this community this whole post may have been a waste, but no point in never trying correct?  ;)

The New Halo 'Game' Trailer has been released.

It will be a Campaign addon for Halo 3. It will be released on January 6th, 2009.

According to the trailer, you might be taking the standpoint of an ODST 'Helljumper'.

Be sure to check out the trailer on the net or on the XBL marketplace.

Butl3r - Anyone that first joins a gaming forum and then suddenly announces they are the best - are going to get flamed.  Please don't blame R3ligion for simply being the first in the Halo community to get to this particular one lol.  Although, he is what you called him :)  lool


ItsBig - Ahh, contrasting that - gotcha.

As for R3ligion - he's his own man, and has a tendancy to take Halo comments more seriously.  Much like I was the one to go after this braggard from AZ a few months back, he deals with people talking about his game as seriously.  The problem is - it can come across strong.  Is that bad?  Well, from what I know of the online halo community - the majority seem to speak strongly, and even more bashing of someone that might flex their 'emuscles' and worse, throw around the word pro - quickly becoming a 4 letter word anyway -_-;;

And his competitive statement? It stems from long term experience and exposure to that scene.  Everyone can have an opinion, but stating things about competitive video gaming - can cause serious drama -_-;;  And I can understand - people will slip up and talk about Soul Calibur around me - and I just stare in awe of people who speak without really knowing much beyond what they've heard, or worse casually read.  It can be frustrating to KNOW that only a hand few of people really know ANYTHING about what happened at SC2 nationals, etc...  So when I think about competitive anything in OK - especially Halo that is pretty clear cut on who was good, and a small tight nit community like SC, etc?  I can understand the easy to speak on limiting people who don't know much talking.  Is it "PC"?  No.  It's not.  I'd like to hope people won't be scared off the site, but if they are?  Well - once again.  R3ligion, other lead staff and active staff? I might give credit easily to as they have all helped this community - but always listen to issues, and do try and weigh things out. 


And we are all americans - we much rather fight than be silenced :)

OSU - Tulsa or OKC?  If Tulsa, just review that volunteering thread, and look for the current events on 1800volunteer.org - if you have any questions beyond what that thread says, feel free to PM me.  OKC - same thing, only pm'ing r3ligion.


Unless you hit buttons - your going to be fine in this community, like any other.  I can honestly say NO ONE on here really "goes after new users" - we are all pretty welcoming - because that's what the site is about anyway - networking.  However.  The LONGER you spend online - the MORE 'buttons' seem to matter - because people get tired of braggards and on here - the word "pro" is easily abused imo.

R3ligion - knows Halo pros, and has to deal with alot of kids that don't know what the word 'pro' means, so has a pretty strict and automated response :)

Me - I've been the 'old school pro' - of traveling around and winning tournaments, gaining money.  I'm well aware of the cut off in my SC community of 'pro status' - and give pretty clear responses if someone pushes me as well lol.

And as for the old defintion of pro - there are several gamers in the community for their respective game - that can take that title as well.  SSBB, Halo 2, Halo 3, GH3 - all have had enough tournaments to established a "in the know list" of who is the best in their respective communties, however...

Coolsvilla - is the only ACTUAL "pro" I KNOW of on these forums for sure.  She's paid - a salary - to play games competitively.  To my knowledge, no one else in Oklahoma is 'pro' in the current definition that is full time job pro "pro".  PTD magazine may be changing that in the next few months, but until then, I personally don't know of a current Pro beyond her in what I consider "current pro" definition.


I blame XBL - the second you can click "pro" from a dropdown of status options, it's the second the word becomes too familiar, and easily misused.  Meh.

I'm from the Tulsa area, but yea I already got on that site and branched off on several different urls, all just restating the fact that you can get volunteer hours in tulsa from OKGamers.com. Can't find anything telling that you can get hours that will be accepted at OSU. So is this all basically stating that OKGamers is now a officially accepted form of volunteer hours for any college?
Oh and by the way im really laid back about everything and based on the fact that I have way too much on my shoulers right now I only take personal attacks more seriously. In other words you and TH3 R3LIGION don't have to worry about me in the drama section, I just like a good argument and when it comes to me being judged I just so happen to be someone that never shapes an opinion of somebody until I meet them in person. Even if I never get to see them in person and do recieve any kind of trash talking or critisicm I still just keep them as an unknown and I guess I just mostly expect this back as a form of respect.  :-\
So yea I was about twelve when I used to go to iGames tournaments but ever sense the store closed I have been shut out of the tournament scene and now that I finally have found a tournament community. Although I think I neither have the time on the specific days to attend tournaments nor do I have the resources to get a team together.  :'( 
Though next year  I am really looking forward to all the stillwater tournaments I see postings for. Going to be a great time at OSU.
But all in all my main point still stands. I bought Halo the week it came out. I played it almost every day over LAN with my friends and did attend tournaments. I grew up and bought Halo 2 the night it came out. I played Halo 2 constantly over XBOX Live and had a few local friendly tournaments. I read the Halo books. I bought Halo 3 the night it came out. Although I don't have the time to be constantly fluent with my Halo 3 nowadays im pretty sure my time spent playing the game only furthers what you stated.
I might not be a pro in the tournament section, but im pretty sure I have logged enough of my life into Halo to humbly consider myself a veteran in the overall Halo community.

ItsBig - the answer is in the first 4 paragraphs of the "students" link off the front page -

OKgamers.com partners with 1800Volunteer.org to provide students in the Tulsa and OKC area's a way to help gamers and local businesses, all while getting their community service hours!  That's right - visit 1800Volunteer.org, search for "OKgamers.com" and either Tulsa, or Oklahoma City, and work with OKgamers as we help organize gaming events and tournaments!  You get your hours of serving the community, and we offer more businesss another reason to have more tournaments and events - additional people to help organize and run their gaming!

Currently Supported Colleges:
Tulsa - Tulsa Community College (TCC), OSU-Tulsa
OKC - OU, UCO

From what Volunteer Central has told me - is that OSU-Tulsa works with and acknowledges Volunteer Central / 1800volunteer.org - so you should be good to go by signing up and having your hours tracked through that site.  You can check with a counciler to make sure, but that's what I've been told.  The next event coming up is Oct 5th - and the event is up, but the opportunities haven't been approved yet - should be any day now.

A) What are you talking about X A? I never said anything to Relgi. All i said was that the post were really long and i didnt even want to try to read all of them.

B) SC community? what do you mean by that. I know it sounds dumb, but I need to know.


A - WOOPS - I meant SnprSlick - he and you both posted while I was responding, so I got the posts confused.

B - Soul Calibur

A) ok cool. Making sure.

B) Cool. Wasnt sure if you went that or if you were in a REALLY old clan called SC, before we branched off and formed GgT.
