Halo 3 E3 trailer

so in case there is a Halo fan on the planet who hasn't seen the Halo 3 E3 trailer, check it out.

I got a kick out of the fact that they chose "Finish the Fight" as the tag line for Halo 3. my second Halo book was called Halo 2 Hacks: Tips and Tricks for Finishing the Fight.

as for the my general feeling about the trailer, it lacked any substance whatsoever. this is fine, but the goal of a teaser is to tease and this one didn't give me anything to get excited about.

the only minor point of interest was that the assault rifle was prominently featured. I didn't mention the assault rifle in my short Halo 3 wish list, but it was something that bugged me. why remove a perfectly reasonable weapon? I believe the rationale was that it was too much like the SMG and changing it to a real rifle would make it too much like the battle rifle. well, the assault rifle showed up in the trailer which strongly suggests that bungie found a way to make it work.

i am impressed though that they used the game engine itself to render that videoclip proving they have stepped well ahead in the graphics department. I am glad to see the assult rifle back and hopefully this means we have a more "halo 1" selection of Weapons.
