"the new assault rifle has a little bit of a longer range than in Halo, and it's a little more accurate."|
"Think of the times when you've been in a game and you see a team-mate up ahead and you yell, 'Hey, you over there with the spiky blue head logo - oh, you're dead.' We're implementing Service Numbers as they're more legible. Now you just yell, 'Hey, t44 get that Warthog!'"
Sounds like someone's been playing Chromehounds (and probably a dozen other games that did it before)
"Jaime Griesemer: Well, we're doing what we're calling Saved Films. You can pause the action and see what's going on, so if there's a crucial moment in your game you can check it out in slow-mo. If you just want to get to the action, you can fast forward. If there's a scene that you really want to check out and get a bird's-eye view of, you can fly the camera around and start the action again and watch it from a different angle. If there's a moment that you've missed - you can rewind! You'll also be able to watch the fight in third-person, and you can do all of the same things from that perspective.
Brian Jarrard: One of the things that's exciting is being able to watch your Saved Films with your party over the network. Imagine what the community will do with that! It's a great way to review your game and work on your strategies and find out what worked and what didn't."
Wow. Sounds like a ridiculously good idea, exactly the sort of thing people would have been dying to have in Halo 2.
