Not going to lie, at first i thought this "Forward Unto Dawn" stuff was nerdy garbage. The first two episodes were pretty slow and uninteresting to me. Part 3 though...WOW. When i saw that Elite slice their statue in half i think i (like AntonfortheHart) may have wet myself a little.

Quick question though...assuming that this Military Academy is on Earth, if the Covenant are attacking it i.e. attacking Earth where does this put "Forward Unto Dawn" in terms of timeline relative to the Halo game story line? In between 2 and 3?

It's not on earth, it's on a distant colony.

Thanks for the advice.

God knows I've played Ce enough not to need a recap.

Honestly do ign reviews really matter to you when you want to play a game? Ive never read a review on a game that states the most obvious problems like frame rate on halo reach and black ops.

Long multiplayer podcast style thing by 343.

Big news for me was the affirmation that there will be no visible skill ranking like there was in Halo 3. I understand their reasoning since boosting and such were problems in Halo 3 which they want to avoid but I'm a bit upset since I found striving for a 50 ranking a lot of fun. The purely time played progression system just isn't as appealing for me.

IGN reviews have gone down the toilet anyway these days. At least some of them. I just read the Forza Horizon review and that was very thoroughly done.

They better put Arena in there. That's all I care about.

IGN's score is much higher than the other major sites as of now.

I've been having a blast playing Reach again. Plus, the campaign looks awesome. Seriously, major props to 343.

It's not easy to make a good game, especially when you're preceded by Bungie...

Funny, though. I don't think it has NEARLY as much hype as 3 or Reach. Dear God, Halo 3 hype was incredible. But I think that was the best Halo so far...

You have to be pretty damn confident to say this is the best Halo... You're looking back at some serious history.

Like i've said since the beginning of this thread, the "Legacy" of Halo 4 lives and dies with its Multiplayer. As blown away as i already am by the Campaign, hearing how Call of Duty-esque the new multiplayer is, as well as getting rid of a visual ranking system will make me less excited about this game.

Picking this game up at midnight release day, I can't freaking wait. I was a bit disappointed in Reach, so its good to see the great reviews, and I like the gameplay I've seen so far. Next 4 days are going to murder me.

I'm not always trusting of IGN but those are some bold claims that are enough to get me really excited for this game.

I'm considering going to a midnight release now...
