About time we had one of these. How many of you are getting the remake of Combat Evolved?

I'm not. My eight year old copy of CE still works fine.

If it wasn't just a graphical update I'd have been all over it.

I really need to figure out who borrowed my copy and never gave it back.

I don't even have an Xbox.

I do, however, have the PC copy of the first Halo sitting in my games library, and I see no reason why I should shell out money for a game that's just the same singeplayer as Halo 1 with better graphics and the same multiplayer as Reach with different maps, even if I had a 360.

Looks like you and me are the odd ones out, Kino.

Console-wise? I'm pretty sure that Medicus has a 360.

Nah, I meant in actually getting the remake.

Dude, i'm so not getting it. For me, Halo ended with Halo 3; reach was kind of like icing on the cake.

And maybe it's me, but i'm getting tired of the whole "run around in space shooting lasers" thing; I'll stick with modern weapons.

The remake is a mixed bag for me. I hated Reach's multiplayer and the campaign alone doesn't really justify the purchase. I might just wait until Halo 4 instead.

There's a Halo 4? GTFO.

There is. And it will be shit.

Who gives a fuck about innovation, about new ideas? Just pump some crap out with the Master Chief on the cover.

I am never going to get ODST 2 at this rate.

I know. Mine is clearly better.

It's still the same guy. Why you gotta be like that?

I'm sorry, I've been talking to Kino for too long.

$5 says they "find" 20 other Spartans that were "missing".

Well I walked into that one, didn't I?

The SPARTAN-II numbers are already off, btw.

Like they gave a shot about continuity.

...I'm not changing to Desmond.

A thought occurs: how is Chief going to easily replenish his human weapons wherever he is if all he has is half of a ship that'll probably result in all weapons being in just one loca-

Oh god. Hub-based gameplay. Calling it now.

Also, what's up with the replacement of his crotchplace with a huge bulge?

To contain his massive balls, perhaps? Not like they care about continuity, when did he get that suit-integrated jetpack? Sounds like someone really liked Dead Space 2.

[up][up] There was discussion before in the Halo 4 thread about how he may have always had it, but I'm guessing it was just a cheap retcon for coolness.

[up] Watch the trailer for 4 again. It's really obvious when you see the Chief standing on the exterior of the Forward Unto Dawn and the camera faces him directly.

Sigh.....fuck MC. After Reach, Jorge and Emile are my favorite Spartans. MC is like that mildly-retarded, obsessive kid you knew in school.

What are the odds that the surviving member of Noble Team and Halsey will turn up eventually?

I'd suggest that the remaining Spartan-II Is from Ghosts of Onyx would turn up, but I'm not sure of the canonicity of that novel.
