    Good heavens, Master Chief! You're beautiful!!

    I wonder if I can join Mr. Williams and Mr. Disney in cryogenic slumber until the end of next year.

    I hope this time around you get some soldiers who have a little more integration into the game. It was great having a game where the soldiers fought side by side with you - but then died in a hurry or disappeared.

    The graphics look great, can't wait for this one!

    DAMN!!!!! Those graphics look like they're in the Doom III ballpark.
    ...and there's over a year of tweakin' and optimizin' left to go.
    Halo II will, definitely, [​IMG]

    I think I would let Halo 2 violate me in ways no other has.

    2003 is just way too far away.

    It's probably too early to start making wish lists, but I'd sure like to see the fabled flamethrower in this one, and damn what I wouldn't give for one of those one-hit-kill plasma swords that the Gold Elites seemed to enjoy poking me with so often...

    And with the tease of new alien races bandied about, dare I dream of playing with the ultimate alien warrior race...Space Monkeys??? Oh, be still my beating heart...

    Master Chief versus Gold Elite versus Combat Flood versus Space Monkey in an all-out multiplayer frag fest...come on, does it get any better than that???

    Wow. Halo still takes up a good chunk of my gaming time. Playing Halo 2 on XBOX Live as opposed to GameSpy, with more vehicles and weapons...and multiplayer maps...pure gamng bliss. I can't wait.

    Am I the only one who notices the lack of AA in those screens? It looks like a lot of polys and high-res textures, but no anti-aliasing.
    In order to counter my negative comment, GameSpot said this about the hints of the storyline...
    "The teaser trailer shows the Master Chief arming himself in the belly of a spaceship. Shouldering an assault rifle, he makes his way through the dark corridors of the ship toward the hangar...As the Master Chief enters the hangar, it is revealed that his spacecraft is orbiting Earth--and that Earth is under heavy fire from Covenant warships...Therefore, the Master Chief's new mission is clear: defend Earth and save humankind. The Master Chief casts open the airlock of his ship and literally hurls himself into outer space, toward Earth. His suit can apparently withstand the void of space, but won't he be incinerated during atmospheric entry? ...He isn't jumping down to Earth--he lands, hard, on a Covenant ship and prepares his assault.
    Sounds pretty damn cool to me.
