343 confirms Halo 4 is native 720p

KevvyMetal79

6 years ago

Halo 3 was a few lines of resolution lower than 720 in order to do all this crazy AI / Theatre stuff on the fly while maintaining a perfect 30 frames per second.
Halo Reach is 720p, has all the same features but now the frame rate shits itself periodically. Lower framerate is a far more unsightly an impactful issue that slightly lower resolution. Well down the internet in making such a big deal of this.

The should start doing this with TV series, something like The Wire.

Eurogamer Reader Survey: Thank You!

KevvyMetal79

6 years ago

Back in the day, when Edge magazine reviewed OOT I think I remember reading that they had the completed code long before the game was on the shelf. Loads of time for the press to thoroughly review the game and give it the score that it deserves.
Publishers want the moon on a stick, they want game x released on date y with no exception. It must hit retailed at a certain time and they will do anything to ensure that the game is out the door, on time. This includes releasing it in a completely unfinished broken state and delivering reviews just days before the embargo is lifted. Sites like EG must hit their review dead line to get as much traffic to the sight as possible, review embargo is up, all the review appear at once. This is completely in the publishers interest as reviewers simply can't get a full view of the product before it's released on time.
The game is out, reviewers give a general impression and all these issues go unnoticed until the punters discover that the promised features are broken. The testing phase is move more and more into our own hands after we have paid our money.

Why not just make it super short range, like a one-inch punch of blue firey energy. Re-interoperate the Street Fighter characters with the Tekken system in mind. Oh yeah, the fanboy knee-jerk reaction would be monumental.

Channel 4 news report shows Halo 5

KevvyMetal79

7 years ago

It would make sense if the new Halo game was internally referred to as "Halo 5" with Reach considered the 4th full instalment. Every game starts with a working title, Black ops DLC refers to it as "COD7".

If 343 are making a new Halo, which they probably are...it will almost certainly be for current gen platforms.
This console generation is for life yo!
