:: Little blurb on IGN about the next gen console and some franchises that

: Seems to me that the way Kinect 2 seems to be living up to the hype, voice

Looking at that article, thinking about a Halo Wars sequel would be such a good idea. I was pretty surprised (and a little upset) to find out that Bungie was so mad about adding their stuff onto the project. Honestly, that was indeed the only reason I checked it out in the first place--the Halo name. Don't get me wrong, the game is great, namesake or not, but I honestly would've been so much more likely to not even know it existed without it. Bungie should actually be grateful--million hits, continuing support, opened the door for console RTS', new types of the Halo name to an otherwise unknown RTS may have been playing it a little too safe, but it majorly paid off. Now people who don't even play RTS games are clamoring for a sequel!

I really hope something like that could happen, with a good chance of bringing people back!

(Just hopefully without a repeat of Running The Show.)

And David, my breath actually caught in an excited shiver over the possibility of voice commands in HW2, if done right. GOD, that would make the game so much cooler--like playing co-op with yourself or something. Multi-tasking!!!
