For the ones that play Halo:

Finally Forerunners. This was expected. Wonder how it will play out.

And why the hell are the Elites enemies again?

Wait, wut? How the hell can the Covenant be there? I thought you destroyed them along with the Flood in Halo 3?

Keep calm and move along.

Remnants. Basically there aren't any prophets to lead them or something. So they are a huge alien force with no direction or purpose, or something like that.

Doesn't explain the Elites however.

Pretty much this, the races still exist; its just them as a collective that was destroyed. The canonical explanation for righting the remnants the Covenant in halo 4 is that communication hasn't found its way to some groups of "covenant" soldiers telling them what happened with the great Schism, and Earth, and the Arc, and the Human-Elite Cease Fire.

The only thing I don't like in Halo...you can't keep collecting all the shinies. :P

How do we know they're actually Forerunners? They all could be just automated defences, even the space ninja bots.

They are automated defenses......it says it right in the trailer. But they are Forerunner automated defenses.

Yeah I got that from the trailer...just sounded like you were convinced we'd be fighting actual Forerunners.

Oh you PC, generating Snobby Game players.

Its full on Xbox, and a good game for the system its on. Of course it limits who will play it, but that is not a big deal for those of us with Xboxes. :P

Its the first HD Halo Game... and it looks amazing at that. Besides, its a console game which is made to be played on a couch a few feet away. At that point, the pixels would have to be pretty big to tell

Being HD is a good thing, but let's be serious here, it's grossly outdated hardware. The hardware IS being used VERY well, but if the console had the current PC hardware, or if the game were made in the PC, it'd be much better graphically speaking.

Oh believe me, I'm not judging its outdated, but to be honest it is. But for it to be putting out visually stunning graphics as it is, is amazing. Its all about art style, something most games lack now-a-days

Game play and Story first.


Graphics somewhere over here, In fact, this should be the last priority if it makes a better game.

Point still stands. As it is, the console is hobbling what can be done on it. Once we get the next generation, we won`t immediately get a huge leap in quality, but we will see it later on.

Indeed, but he console has limitations in this aspect too. Size of map/levels is one. There's only so much you can fit in the console's current available memory.

IIRC, BF3 was gimped in this aspect, maps are much smaller.

It's not something inherently bad with consoles as a concept, it's just the current hardware specs. They just need to be updated to be brought back up to speed and then we'll be in the clear for a couple more years, if not a decade.

Was referencing the models and lighting capabilities that are so restricted on xbox.

Graphics add to the story considerably, the more real it looks the more real it will feel especially with characters.

IMO the lighting and models looked fine, great even for what it was. Yes it can be better on PC with current tech rather than running on older tech, but they have gotten very good at using the tech they have.
Gotta remember that even if they got the current tech it'd take them at least a year to get accustomed and relearn all their tricks so brand new games won't be a leap in graphical quality. It'll be better but not a huge leap some expect it to be.

And yes Graphics do add to a story. Today especially I get the feel many people who didn't live with older games can't go back to them because of graphics being too bad compared with today's. It all has varying degrees on how much it affects them but newer gamers I think are less inclined to play an older game if it was based on graphics alone.
If a game doesn't look like arse then it'll get a better look and then they'd play it. I am certainly affected by it a lot of the time, mainly as i want a game to look good so I can get immersed a lot better.
Come look at my art.
