    Hey guys, found this over on the TXB forums. Someone has scanned pics from a magazine called Edge with concept art for new covenant bad guys, new human and covenant vehicles, also some text discussing level design, AI improvements, etc. Some of it is pretty cool looking stuff, going to be a long year and a bit waiting for this.

    There's been a press embargo on Halo 2 that ended very recently. I'd expect to see a whole lot more coverage in the next couple of weeks.

    As if waiting for a good on-line update to Halo could possibly be any harder, now they're releasing info about the new vehicles.

    The Troop Hog and the Buggy Bike are going to make Capture the Flag _very_ interesting.

    Thanks, Ryan.

    I never really left, I just haven't been posting very much. I've been very busy with work, so I haven't had much time to post. Unfortunately, that's not likely to change for another couple of months.

    Future Publising (who own Edge) are aware of the situation and have the poster's IP, by the way. Someone at Microsoft is in a rather bad mood, as the press embargo isn't meant to be lifted until tomorrow (17th). Whoever it was that got this copy of the mag was rather lucky, as subscriber copies haven't been sent out early to avoid this very problem.

    But I am rather happy to see this news this morning. Halo is my most played game since Goldeneye, and I am still playing a level a day (alone [​IMG] - any Northern Virginia members interested???) for fun. I await any news and details of the sequel...it should be well worth the wait [​IMG]
    Thanks for the links...
    Take care,
    Chuck

    I think this game is going to suck. I think I will pass on this one. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Ugh, I should know better than to read stuff like this. The waiting was hard enough!! [​IMG]
    Good stuff. I'm particularly curious about those Ape-dudes. Not knowing anything about the backstory other than what was revealed in the first game, I wonder if those Brutes are something like an indigenous race to whatever planet the next game takes place on. Kind of like if they had Wookies instead of Ewoks on Endor, but instead of friendly Wookies, they were nasty, snarling, cranky, well-armored Wookies who didn't take kindly to any sort of invaders, be they Covenant or the Master Chief.
    I'm probably way off, but damn if that wouldn't be cool... [​IMG]

    To be honest, I think I'm most excited about the fact that they're making the AI "better". Hell, I thought it was some of the best I've gone up against yet. Made replaying levels fun since the enemies weren't "run at ya shooting" idiots!
    Can't wait to see how smart they are next time around. [​IMG]
