Bungie Releases Halo 2 Preview Video

First Person Shooters (Games) 14

jaywhy writes "Bungie have just unleashed a high resolution, Dolby 5.1 video of actual gameplay in Halo 2. This isn't the shaky cam-filmed version you saw at E3 - all I have to say is 'wow'! O1 Communications also has BitTorrent links to the videos." Apparently, this may be similar to the earlier leaked in-game footage, but officially approved and at a much higher quality.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Red vs. Blue (4, Informative)

Universal Nerd (579391) | more than 11 years ago | (#6193116)

As there are no Quickies anymore here on Slashdot, let me just point out that Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles [redvsblue.com] is already at episode 9.

For those that don't know, Red vs. Blue is a comedy series made in-game in Halo.

Still waiting for Halo PC

You don't have to wait much longer for the PC version of Halo. Check out Halo PC FAQ [bungie.net] on Bungie's web site.

Bungie should be enjoined against releasing Halo 2 (-1, Flamebait)

Quixotic Raindrop (443129) | more than 11 years ago | (#6193347)

until they release Halo 1 for the Macintosh. Since that was the ONE freaking thing they promised us when that jackass sellout Alex Seropian announced that Microsoft would never tell Bungie what software to make (that sure lasted long, didn't it, you arrogant dickweed? Assimilation is always complete).

More BitTorrent Links (4, Informative)

GameTab also have BitTorrent links to the WMV and MOV versions on their BitTorrent Files page [gametab.com] - useful to know if the other mirrors get clogged up.

Identical to E3 demo video (3, Informative)

mh_tang (307188) | more than 11 years ago | (#6194217)

It's a direct source, so it's much higher quality than the shaky-cam version that was on /. earlier, but still the same demo video from 2003 E3.

It's the one where the Master Chief flies down, snipes some aliens, mans the stationary chaingun, then goes dual uzi akimbo through some wreckage. Hops into the back of a Warthog, and blasts Convenant ships while the AI controls driving. Then hops out, hijacks a Banshee GTA3-style, and rides away from big capital ships chasing MC. Then it rains down pods, and the MC primes a plasma grenade, etc.

I finally was able to understand what Cortana said at the end when MC pulls out his plasma grenade! It was muddled in the 'cam' version I watched before. "Bet you can't stick it". "You're on."

Definitely worth downloading to watch if you haven't seen it before.

I wonder why they didn't include the HUD in the demo though. The Masterchief takes so many covenant attacks that it almost seems like they might have put on infinite health/shield for the demo... Guess it makes for a better show.

Is that the same video that is on the XBox magazine demo disk? Some of that sounds familiar but at this point I can't remember where I saw it.

Of course they put on Invincibility and Inf Ammo... how embarrassing would it be if the press guy DIED? He never reloaded once either. But Halo 2 in one word: Orgasmic.

Actualy, he reloads the scoped assault rifle after running down the stairs beside where he naded some grunts and tables. But aside from that, yeah, must have been infinite ammo.

It's really not as good... (1)

Weeb (69841) | more than 11 years ago | (#6194667)

without the mad cheering of a hundred dozen Bungie fanboys.

You could just feel them sitting up and grinning when the Chief commandeered that Ghost. :D
