Re: HBO Throwback Thursday - "Alien Knights"

In Response To: HBO Throwback Thursday - "Alien Knights" (MacGyver10)

: As I was reading back through the old HBO archive, I ran across the initial
: reveal of the Hunters. Thought you all might like to relive the
: excitement of the Lekgelo showing up with all the hubbub around the
: Hunters coming to Halo Wars 2!

: New alien in Computer Games Magazine 117 August 2000
: Another new alien? Kudos to Davin for spotting what's looks like a new Halo
: alien in Computer Games Magazine. We'll let Davin tell it: I just got a
: copy of Computer Games Magazine No#117 August 2000 . There
: is a good 5 page spread in there about HALO. The most interesting thing
: however is that page 39 shows a totally new alien I haven't seen in any of
: the videos or pictures. He almost looks like an alien knight. He has 5
: large tapered spires rising up from his back pointing upward at an angle
: (2 on each side with outter most 2 being a little shorter with one in the
: center). He is very stout looking and has a solid looking redish orange
: shield mounted on his upper left shoulder, and another large oblong shield
: in his left hand which covers a good portion of his body and is somewhat
: rectangular with the edges cut off. The alien looks very cool. Almost has
: and anime look to him. Hope this helps! You gotta get a screen of it.

: We'll try to bring you this ASAP. If anyone can grab a scan in the mean time
: please send it into us. Thanks.

A alien knight you can 1SK :)

Man, that mostly just highlights how weird and alien games press was back then compared to now. More and more reveals are direct-from-the-dev and the days of waiting and secondhand information from magazines is long dead.
