Well Its a RTS, and its Halo. Well looking at the briefly short trailer, and then reading this article on the Halo Wars site (www.halowars.com) I found out that you can call in Orbital bombardment, and scarabs comming out of holes.

So what do you guys think? Its E3 until Friday is over.

It has a lot of potential. I'm hardly a Halo lover, as the games (especially Halo 2) are fairly mediocre and don't play particularly well.

However the setting does allow for a particularly good RTS. Let's hope it isn't just another brainless buildathon clone :p

compared to PC shooters, yes the games dont play well. Compared to other console shooters, they are very well done.

as long as the story is good, i will likely get it

I'll admit that it looks cool and has my interest.

Soul 2.4

Background process. Has something to do with some activity going on somewhere. Sorting junkmail, I think. No value or interest. Doesn't do much except hog resource.

Is your dad a game journalist? Are you? Because if both of you are not, you cant get into E3. :p

In any case, Halo Wars looks alright... the creators have alot of experience in the genre.

Didn't it start out as a mod?

You can't say that i cant, as it shows im quite capable of shifting the blame to Microsoft. The people part of the conversion spent alot of time on the mod, it is really part of their intellectual property, even though microsoft owns Halo.

they called it Halo. Meaning they are taking Bungie and Microsoft's intellectual property. It's Slipstream's fault it happened. If they would have called it something else, they would have been find. Look at Battlefield: 2552. They didn't call it Halo, but it had many Halo similarities. Microsoft can't do much of anything to them.

Their time, effort and work, but not their intellectual property. It doesn't matter how much time or effort they put into it, at the end of the day, they still technically broke the law - and were penalised for it in a fairly minor manner. Hell, if it had been Fox who owned Halo, they could be up shit creek right now :xd:
