Re: So, about H5, E3, and H2A

In Response To: Re: So, about H5, E3, and H2A (Grizzlei)

: I'm really anticipating the day when simple HD remakes are a trend long
: relegated to the GameStop bargain bin. Anniversary games are SOOOOOOOOOO
: 2011 anyways.

: Instead, use Halo 4 or Halo 2014 as an anniversary celebration. Pick a
: selection of maps that fans really enjoyed in Halo 2 and recreate them. No
: time and money will have been wasted on a high-definition campaign upgrade
: that is unreasonable. Also, how about expanding the Halo 2-era fiction
: between October and November 2552! Graphic novels, novels, and anime
: shorts would be perfect. There's plenty of content that csn be derived
: from this as god knows there's a treasure chest full of plotholes.

Definitely agree about the story side, though I'd be scared that 343i wouldn't respect the art direction of the era and try to inject their own special sauce. But I've got the graphic novel script ready if they want me to make the Halo 'Shadows of the Empire' between 2 and 3. Seeing Johnson reactivate Crow's Nest as Buck uses Vergil to break down a Covenant Spire over the York Megalopolis to let in a convoy of Scorpions and Grizzlies led by Dutch... I wish I had the time for another massive fan-project. :(

In terms of a remake of the Halo 2 campaign, I personally doubt they could do the visuals justice after making me cry during half of Halo: CE A. They'd probably also feel the need to add in an extra note or drum beat here and there to great songs like Peril and Delta Halo. I'd much rather they leave it alone and let my blood pressure rest. I'm glad my original XBox still works and the PC version provides some nice upscaling if I want that.

As for the multiplayer side of things... Remakes of classic maps are always fun, but I don't think you can really capture the magic of the original Halo 2 Live experience without making an exact copy. And even then, people probably wouldn't get the same love out of it. Nostalgia is great until you actually return to the past and find it's not the same as you remember it because a thousand other factors have changed. People have changed, technology has changed, friends have moved on...

Some things should just be left to sleep in our memories, awoken every once in a while at a LAN for a few rounds of fun.

343i should just focus on making Halo 5 the best it can be and that's it.
