This is not the video released by Bungie. This is not Halo 2.5, the graphics look incredible. Click on the black screen to start the video.

Edit:

Cuse,

The KotH "hill" or "ring" definately looks better in this vid.

Vid shows: -Rockets on Snowbound -Shotty Snipers on Highground (apparently you spawn with snipes and a shotty as secondary) -Team Crazy King on Highground Some of the action is split screen (and still looks awesome)

Agreed, but I'm still not blown away.

USE the freaking Needler. Will one of the retards shooting this footage USE the Needler. Picking it up just to walk around with it until an enemy shows up and then switching to the AR is reeeeally annoying.

It shoots like the old one, except it starts of very slow (like a chain gun would) and then speeds up. Before it reaches full speed, your enemy is usually an explosion. Body still has needle chunks in it too...

Alright for those of you who haven't played the beta yet, you must go to xboxyde and download the HD vids along with the longer complete ones. Here's the link to XBOXYDE. My jaw fell when I saw the brute shot in action. It looks like one of the pms girls is playin the beta, and there's also further evidence of grenade jumping.

Valor already posted that link on the "The seal has been broken" topic. Second page.

Gametrailers just released 6 HD videos. Nice!

So I finally got around to watching a couple of the Xboxyde videos.

• I really don't understand how people say the graphics are only marginally better than Halo 2's. The HDR, soft shadow, weapon models, explosions, everything looks stunning. Maybe not as great as GoW's, but Halo 3's graphic style far, far exceeds Gears.
• The new blue lights on the Ghost are sexay.
• Finally saw grenade jumping with mine own eyes.
• I just now noticed that when playing a game of Rockets in Halo 3 you have infinite ammo.
• Auto-aim has decreased as much as I'd hoped
• Ragdoll physics are greatly improved. I saw a guy get shot off a Mongoose and then smack face first into a slab of concrete on High Ground. Laughter ensued.

I'm still waiting for the Valhalla one to finish downloading.

The more I see the hill in vids, the more it grows on me, and its structure makes sense. Reason being, the way Crazy King works is the map is littered with "equipment-esque" devices at which the hill randomly spawns. When the hill moves, it encircles a different one of these devices. It gives you an idea of some of the areas you might need to control later, even if the hill is elsewhere at the moment (though, honestly, after a few games of Crazy King on the map, most of us would know all of the spawns anyways...). On a somewhat related note, I saw an awesome use of the power drainer in a Snowbound vid, Crazy King. A guy was guarding the hill, so the player snuck up behind him dropped the drainer and finished him off immediately with one shot from the BR. Sick. I guess he could have just assassinated him, but I mean, the power drainer looked cooler.
