In Response To: Re: The future of Halo Wars (Morpheus)

: 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!!!

Halo Wars still maintains a pretty good population considering how old it is and that its a console RTS. I to this day have no problems finding UA matches.

I don't think the physical controls can really be improved upon honestly, though IDK what I'm really missing. Perhaps Kornman00 could chime in with what could work for a controller that isn't already there.

Voice commands would be pretty cool I think. Dunno off the top of my head what to add but I bet something could work really well.

Halo Wars reminds me a lot of Invasion. Lots of potential, SO MUCH potential, not enough love :'(
