I'm pretty sure HBO has pretty much always had a no leaks policy, but I'm not sure if that ever changed in recent years.

Well, the lack of context on the cinematic teaser can lead people like myself to jump to conclusions!

For example, if the final cinematic of the game cuts to Lord Hood and then maybe back to the Chief, well, I think it does a lot to ruin the feel for the final cinematic of H2. Showing Lord Hood really serves no purpose, you know? In the original, we see the ship enter Earth's atmosphere as chaos ensues all around. There's static and conversations all over. We're hearing this from Master Chief's perspective and from his helmet. The focus is on him. Why? He's on board. He's back at Earth. We're finishing this fight (sort of). Showing off flashy CGI while detracting from the subtext and writing of the scene just to show off flashy CGI is, in my opinion, pointless.

Then again, it may just be a teaser designed to excite and entice! Maybe it won't make it into the final version of H2A! Who knows! Not me. Not anyone, really. We aren't supposed to have seen this yet. But hey, I would have said it in the future, so why not now? Now I don't have to care about it again, and I won't be surprised when they go screwing (in my opinion) with the cutscenes (if that's what they do).

     I really liked how fast it switches graphics *NM*ZackDark6/16/14 2:06 am
           Same. Way better than H1A if it holds true *NM*Avateur6/16/14 2:07 am
