Halo: The Future of Gaming

Postby Paul » 22 Sep 2007, 06:59

Sorry this went up a little later then normal.
So. Much. Post production.

I think it was worth it though. Truly a frightening specter of things to come. Big thanks to Ash for supplying her "Starcraft Voice" for the narration.

That was brilliant. And sort of reminds me of the Animatrix.

I find it disturbing to think there are people out there that believe the Halo series actually having that much affect on the world. Though I'd like to think there was a guerrilla movement of pc gamers playing new releases of Half-life, counterstrike and command & conquer who largely ignored the halo launches.

I enjoyed that quite a bit, especially the description of the tactics displayed after the giant x-box launch. My one complaint would be the flickering of the images throughout started to give me a little bit of a headache.

For those who say it isn't funny, I concede to that point. However, what it lacks in blatent comedic value it makes up for in incredible production value.

Your best comedic video to date? No.

Your best production video to date? It's up there.

BTW, HALOcaust was pure genius.

And Ash needs to get a job doing VO for TV, it really worked well, especially with the soothing voice over the images of war and destruction. Very "2001:A Space Odyssey"-ey.

heehee, visions of doom.

I especially liked the "Halo 5" jokes, and the taglines to all the post-H3 games.

The best part, though, was the first non-Halo game release in over three decades. Returning to our roots!

Also, yes, Ash's voice was perfect for the video.

Wow. I thought that was Kathleen's voice, digitally altered.

Now that I know who it was, I can see that it's Ash. That's very impressive - she really sounds like a computer-generated AI.

"HALO 8 brings both an end and a new beginning as a perfect storm gathers."

I LOVE this line. It's so content-free, cliched, and perfectly evocative of advertising.

Where did all of the stock footage come from? I note that there are virtually no cast appearances, except for Graham and Ash.

Did Ash do the cover art for Halo 5? It looks like her style.

As someone who has never played the games, there was obviously some stuff that went over my head, but it was worth it just for the production. It was obviously not meant to be the most hilarious video ever, but it was certainly impressive!

*sigh* Corax, we get it, you don't like console games. I can respect that, being a hardcore PC gamer myself, but seriously dude, do you have to be such a dick about it?

I mean, you'd think you'd figure it out...
