Sweet. I've never been a huge multiplayer guy, but I've played every halo campaign. Looking forward to this at some point :)

I've been suckered 3 other times so far so I guess I'm definitely a fan now. Looking good. Friend will need new panties.

All I have to say is thank fucking god the BR is back. The DMR is complete shit compared to the BR.

I do wish they would reconsider abilities though. No need to CODify Halo any more. Make it the anti-COD please 343.

- BR is back
- Reticule bloom is gone

Now if they can just fix the melee system, I'll be hyped.

Someone needs to get those glorious gifs in the OP, stat. I have to leave for work in a few mins. :(

And fatman, edit the title! "Halo 4" is too ambiguous, lol.

I'm already sick of hearing about the BR. And I thought the HUD was supposed to look different. The bloom helps hides Halo's simple geometry and lack of post-processing effects (still not jaw-dropping since Halo 2's graphics) - got to compromise somewhere to get 4 player split-screen I suppose.

Looks awesome, probably looking forward to this game the most this year.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

haha...i give credit to ppl who can utilize certain wpns with great skill and efficiency but i have to laugh a bit when they complain when it's taken away from them. (and not just them but everyone who plays the same game w/the same tools)

It'll be nice to hear some fresh MC dialogue and see how their perk system turns out.

Halo 4 Beta coming with Crackdown 3 this time around? ;)

More like Crackdown 3 comes free with the purchase of the Halo 4 beta.

If you watch the video on the Xbox Dashboard, they specifically state that they're building multiplayer levels from scratch, and not copying them from campaign sections like how Halo: Reach did it for both multiplayer and firefight. That was definitely uninspired in Halo: Reach.

Although they didn't mention it, I hope they'll bring back firefight, maybe with a more classic approach to it online where you play as long as you can survive. And allow players to join in-progress games, like Horde Mode.

Pretty excited! Am a bigger fan of the series' campaign than multiplayer, but it's good to hear they're creating original multiplayer levels. As controversial as Halo is, it's by far my second favorite shooter right behind the Half-Life series.

One of the most important things at least to me that I hope they bring back is a 1-50 ranking system. I know Reach had Arena, but I want a rank system for ALL gametypes like they had it for Halo 2 and 3. It should reduce quitters and make the game much more enjoyable when you are playing for something every game.

I'm for that if they have a decent match making system and a way to prevent de-leveling. I was never an ace at the game, but hovered around a 26-30 and there's nothing more frustrating than playing people 20 levels over you who spent a day quitting matches so they can own a match against lower ranked opponents.

looking forward to this...hopefully the MP will hold my interest more than Reach did and that it has more of a Halo 1 feel.

if you look at the top gif animation, the spartans are getting 10 pts per kill. kills and objectives probably vary in scoring.

My advice, stay away from it until reviews come out. 343i butchered Reach and Combat Evolved Anniversary has horrible co-op lag.
