To clear up any misconceptions with "the kids on Twitter," Spike Video Game Awards host Geoff Keighley took to Major Nelson's podcast this weekend and explained that the Halo: Reach trailer on next week's show will be "actual gameplay." That's right, folks: none of that live-action or CG mumbo jumbo. "You'll get a first glimpse at the world of Reach," Keighley told the Major during this week's show. "I think it's going to be the biggest game next year by far."

When addressing the contents of the trailer -- something Keighley claimed to have not seen just yet -- he noted that he thinks people will be shocked by the direction than Bungie is taking, calling it a "huge leap forward." So, Mr. Keighley, it could be said that the studio is reaching new ground then?

... Hello? Where are you going?!

Halo is reaching the point where I could give less than a shit. I have never liked the games to begin with and the continual use of the franchise outside of the original trilogy just screams "We want more money!"

If there is an actually difference with the whole feel of the game, like a NEW game, not jsut some addon to the story to rip people off, then im interested.

Meh, Halo. The original Xbox game was pretty enjoyable and brought some advancements to the genre, but the other games are awful and not enjoyable at all.

I don't understand why everyone here hates Halo.

If they changed the feel of the game, it might repel away customers.

People hate Halo because it became so insanely popular and pretty much "the killer app" of all time. And it's pretty natural for even those trying to fit in to try to be non-conformist in some aspect. And since no one really knows you on forums such as this, they can feel non-conformist by saying "Boo Halo's bad!"

Well, Halo isn't my favorite game, but it's been such a groundbreaker that you have to appreciate it. It made online gaming what it is today. It made so many things in pop culture. It revolutionized FPS games. You may not like the games, but you can't say it's "hidden shovelware".

Anyway, Halo Reach looks kinda interesting. Mind you, I haven't really seen any of the trailers or stuff, so I'm not very informed about it. I'm mainly looking forward to the Star Wars premiere at the VGA's.

I couldn't give two shits about the awards. At pretty much every award show that isn't the Grammys, Oscars, Golden Globes, etc, prizes aren't based on critics but basically whoever attends. You're not going to give an award to someone who didn't come. Well, I don't know how big the VGA's are. Sure, it's the only real video game award ceremony that comes to mind, but the only real important video game awards are those given by big name reviewers like IGN or Famitsu. Yes, even Famitsu.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
