It seems that it is gonna be reality and could be out in less than a year and a half.

Default Re: Halo movie

My stance is, and I'll stick to it, is that Halo is one of the most overrated pieces of junk, archtypical of a new generation of games based off of distribution and profit, not gameplay. It is only fitting that the game find a home in the movie theatres, a medium which has long since languished into the same phase.

All that hollywood fluff kills me!

"Erm, Larry Niven wrote a cool book about a ring world once. Maybe we should copy his idea wholesale."
"Okay."
"Cept, lets make the ring world smaller. They were a bit over-eager back then..."
"Less work for us. Sure."
"What should it be for?"
"I wonder what'd sell... I know! It's some giant space babe's ring of power, forged in the core of the galaxy!"
"Great idea! ... But our lawyers wouldn't like it."
"What do guys like? Babe and... babes and... guns! It'll be a giant gun!"

And so the "greatest FPS evar" was born. I mean, jeez, Master Chief doesn't even have any character design or much development. He's just a space-suit! And what was Halo 2, if not just Halo 1 with a barely noticeable makeover, and gimicky features like dual wielding, which sounds totally awesome for about 20 minutes?

It won't be great I think, but still worth a looksee.

Yawgmoth, as a former MTG junkie I'll refrain from evicerating you with the Sword of Kaldra, but needless to say I disagree on the concept of the game being at all overrated for what you get. I will, however, agree that great games should stay that way: great games. What will the movie be based on, endless firefights and storylines we already found out the hard way, watching the cinematics while wiping Elite blood of out rifle buttstocks?

I should have included that in my origional post, I'll move this into an edit if Hatman prefers. Halo is great, but I agree. Half Life was a revolution. You stopped being the gamer, you became Gordon Freeman. guns were lying where they were left, not hovering and glowing. Considering it changed FPS forever and was at the same time the first game Valve ever created... Halo doesn't scratch. *Grav-guns desk into Civics teachers skull* God, I hate this class.

Though ihave played Halo only once i'm intrigued as to what they will do. I mean doesn't masterchief never show his face or speak his real name? How will they deal with that? I wish they would make a starcraft film instead or Warcraft.

I could see the love of the story going with Jim Raynor and Kerrigan.

The books really help the storyline though.

Agreed.

As for making a movie out of halo. A film company bought the right to make a Deus Ex film a couple of years ago, and it never eventuated.
