    Quite gruesome when the Elite cut the Brutes legs off then stabs him in the chest and the Brute pulling the marines arms right out their sockets, Chewie!

    Wonder if that will make it into the final game. Would be sweet.

    Sean on Neogaf pointed out that if you pause the video at mark 1:53, you can see the new HUD, complete with faint visor outline and a suspicious 4th grenade icon (top-left) that looks like something I've seen before...'X' button usage confirmed? It's either that, or we'll be cycling through 4 types of grenades.

    It seems the health/overshield indicator is now centered at the top of the screen (and is much longer), weapons and ammo gauge are on the top-right, and a slightly angled radar on the bottom-left.

    The shield thing from the TV ad?

    7 minute Halo 3 documentary about Brutes.

    Youtube link for those that can't wait

    Animation looks to be top notch. Funny Bungie rightfully slating themselves at the start. Good on them.
    Animation looks to be top notch? I wasn't impressed. Especially after playing Gears of War and seeing Heavenly Sword. Though I guess I can just about forgive it as the Halo 3 game mechanics will be much more frantic and faster paced than Gears, so realistically timed and weighted animation may not be possible.

    Think that it looks brilliant for place holder material.

    Xboxyde video

    I think it looks pretty good for being alpha. The no texture scenes look like very high quality. When they put final textures etc.. on that it should look fantastic.

    Just watched the vid. My thoughts? If all the enemies had of been Elites, I would've been cacking it right now. A seriously impressive video in most regards, and the potential of the graphics looks infinite. But I don't know, I just can't bring myself to care as much about fighting Brutes. I just can't.

    :(
    CACKING IT.

    Its perhaps because the Elites are far more alien than the Brutes... squid jaw, weird arms and legs. Whilst brutes are basically gorillas with pachydermic legs.

    If they have character though in the new one, and are INTERESTING to fight, then they should be good. Which it looks like they are making. In white textures.

    No, the reason why people like elites over brutes is because they make funny comments, use team tactics that make sense and do lot's of clever stuff. Brutes just charge you.

    Having just seen the video, I am equal parts excited and concerned. Right at the start of the video they seem to understand why brutes were not much fun in Halo 2 and seem to be earnestly trying to rectify that. Yet every time I see a brute in that video its either

    a) Standing in the open shooting at you and "absorbing" all your hits.

    b) Charging you to melee.

    I know its relatively early build and that we did not see a lot of what the final game would be like, still like I said worry and excitement in mixed in equal parts for me.

    And it was nice to see the grunts.

    Bang Bang!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

  • Deleted user 20 December 2006 20:33:36
    So then...they're making the brutes better by basically making them like elites, right? I mean, from looking at that video it really did look like they were basically acting like elites now. Which is at least a definite improvement.

    Pretty underwhelmed by the game footage, but they'd hardly go and show their very best stuff in such a small documentary. It's hard to shake the feeling that it just looks like a higher-res Halo 2 though.

    "2. Four grenades in the HUD! Is that fourth one the Shield Grenade from the TV ad?

    No. And like anything you see in the Vidoc, itís based on early dev work, often months-old. I can tell you that the HUD shown in the Vidoc isnít like the one in the current build. There may be more or less items in that ďgrenadeĒ bar now. It may be gone entirely. Iím not saying this to simply distract you from the question, but rather truthfully point out that things can, do and will change. Donít get too attached to, or too upset by anything you see here. Itís likely that almost every single element shown will look entirely different by the time the game ships."

    Damn it, Bungie. You're in my forum, denying my claims!

    Place me in the "underwhelmed" group.

    That wasn't much cop at all.

    Well yes, they would say that, wouldn't they?

    S'fair enough though, I mean, I'd do exactly the same, mainly because it's almost always true. And let's be honest, stating it's all WIP covers all bases; those who like it say "OMG! Just think what it'll look like by release!" and those who don't say "Well, they've got plenty of time yet to make it look amazing".

    Yeah they say the graphics are 'moths' old. Whether we choose you believe them is another thing!

    I do of course: blindly. :)

    Ah, the ancient time period of a 'moth'. Commonly thought to be around 30 of our modern 'days' long.

    Thing is, as I think I said in the previous Halo 3 thread, it looks like they're going for scale over graphical swish, so while the details might be limited, as an overall spectacle it should still be pretty special.

    The animation still sucks, though. :p

    I was amazed at how they're going on about animation so much and then they showed the same terrible movement from the previous games.

    If anyone wonders why the brutes move like slightly overweight American developers though, at least we'll know why. :D
