    So is that like an expansion or a real game? The title kinda throws me off. "Halo 3 : Recon"

    Its set between 2 and 3 with wat i can only guess is a lone shock trooper hopefully it will be more tactical or at leaast not as silly as the master chief and his silly green suit !

    It has a new character and an entirely new story line. The only reason it`s not going to be Halo 4 is because they said they`d make a trilogy.

    But clearly there`s still money to be made, so make it they will. Still, should be good to play.

    How about Halo Wars? That`s coming out first.

    the trailer was reminiscent of cloverfield, without a monster

    and the score sounded really cool :)

    I except it to be disappointing, just from what I`ve heard about Halo 3.

    Eventually the Halo wells will dry up, but not on this one, millions of these games will sell.

    They just seem to be milking 1 more pint out of the halo cow... I wish game developers would think of original stuff ¬¬.

    It doesn`t really matter if the game is good or not, fan-boys will still praise it and worship it like a god!

    Hopefully its not a jump fest like the other halos. Let`s run around and the only tactical thing I can do is squat or jump! Halo 2 > Halo 3 so I`m not gonna be too thrilled that this is coming out. Halo Wars looks cool though. RTS FTW

    I love you too, davy. To everyone else, we play Halo together, and even though he loves talking to (read: insulting) me, he still talks bad about the game.
    http:[email protected]/2979381998/
    Just to prove he`s talking about me.

    And on the video, the soldier you see is an ODST, and he`s in New Mombasa after the UNSC ships and the Covenant ships Slipspace`d to the Delta Halo.

    I say bring it!

    On a side note, I would love it if Halo became more of an RPG or perhaps and MMO... maybe a hybrid of both capture the flag style and an RPG. Maybe that`s to much or too difficult, but I think it would be epic.

    Kind of like Shadowrun: The original Sega game was a great RPG, but then the terds went and made it a straight up capture the flag game and ruined the entire premise of Shadowrun all together.

    It`s a expansion with enough content to be a stand alone. kind of like kanes wrath.

    it`s also bungies "gift" to the major fans of the story, for the people who want to know more. and also for the people who wanted more halo on earth

    the story is what makes it big.

    if you think its not a big story with a lot of major fans, explain to me the 7 odd novels and the comic series and the graphic novel and the many spin offs coming out.

    I think this game will be a bit like putting your dick in a bowl of pudding. (Halo Recon will being the dick in the pudding that is the Halo series.) It`s probably still perfectly good pudding and you can spend all night explaining it, but no one`s going to eat any of it because you put your dick in it.

    Thank you, zero punctuation for that metaphor.

    Hehe ``colon``, Lionheart. ^__^ (Circumflex accent underscore underscore circumflex accent).

    Thought it was semicolons which were followed by lower case, and colons were followed by uppercase.

    iruga: I understand it`s (technically) an "expansion" and uses the engine, but if it`s a spin-off of the story of Halo 2, title-wise, I can`t agree with the "3." Don`t take this as an argument though. I simply think they should have reconsidered the name.

    Defenite yay.
    -Play as an ODST. (No master chief as we kow of)
    -Release date is fall 2009
    -This is taking place off of Halo 2, when the covenant cruiser shoots off from New Mombasa. You know, the city gets blasted or whatever...
    -When I first saw the forum to this video, people thought it was a reference to 9/11. WRONG.

    I kinda like the Halo franchise. So, this looks sorta neat.

    Especially since it`s the first game ever to feature characters that aren`t really special, as in, you get to play a character that is "disposable" to the grand scheme of things.

    Hopefully this will be as good as it looks. I`m sorta disappointed with Bungie right now for what they`re doing to matchmaking.

    Team Shotty Snipes and Team Snipers no longer is social or ranked? WTF of my life.

    Mantistador, they are still making millions off of Star Wars. They come out with a new movie or game or toy every two years. And you are complaining about Halo? Which is only coming up on its fourth game? What about Need for Speed? How many games do they have? Bungie and Microsoft will keep making Halo as long as people will buy Halo.

    Alas the Halo series is but a glimmering light in the distance, too far from my reach. As I`m a Station owner. LBP was f*cking delayed and Fable 2 is coming out! I gotta admit Sony really dropped the ball on this one, even going so far as losing their most sacred of exclusives, Final fantasy, to the 360.

    never bought halo 3, but I`m pretty sure stealth sequences wasn`t it`s strong point.

    And Ryan, the difference between this and the star wars/NFS franchises is that they actually came out with something new every now and then.

    playing an ODST will be so badass. although he will probably die really really really fast and not be able to do as much as master chief (ie - flip tanks over)
