Halo: Infinite

It’s been a long time coming, but we finially have some concrete video for Halo: Infinite – AKA, Halo 6. It looks…good:

I gotta say, the gameplay itself looks like a cross between Halo 5 and something else. What that something else is, I’m not sure. It looks fast paced and very much like H5. I was never a fan of sprint, or clamber and they’re both there, but that’s not the end of the world. The grappling hook is neat, I hope it doesn’t turn into something stupid though.

All in all, I’m excited for it. I will buy it of course, but will I play it again, or will I 100% it and then uninstall it to go back to the good ol’days? That remains to be seen.

Here’s the official trailer:

Halo Trailers

I’m not sure what caused it, but I started watching all these old trailers/advertisements for various Halo Games. There’s something about them that I don’t really remember from any other video game. Call me nostalgic, call me biased, but the marketing of all the Halos was pretty unforgettable. Be it the live action ones, the diorama ones, or the cinematic game rendered ones, everything was high quality. I remember most of these, some better than others, I remember being excited.

Like I said, I don’t know why, but I’ve watched this whole list and it’s really something different that I don’t remember anywhere else.

What is it with the Star Wars posts lately?  Oh, that’s right Episode VIII is going to come out next month.  That’s right.  It better not suck though.  The trailer has me worried, it looks an awful lot like The Empire Strikes Back.  I mean, look at it – Walkers on a snow planet, Jedi training with an old lost Master, dark theme, lost souls.  It looks like eerily similar to ESB.  I hope it’s not.

Ready Player One

I have no idea what this movie is about.  Seriously, even after the trailer, it’s not apparent what the plot of the movie is.  But there are 2 Easter Eggs in the trailer that piqued my interest.

If you want to find them for yourself, then don’t read any more.

Installation 01

Community re-built games have a tendency to look amazing, but never get anywhere.  I’ve never heard of Installation 01, but they just released a trailer for their work, you can watch it here:

It’s a pretty damn good trailer, and it’s amazing at how closely it seems to have followed the source material of primarily Halo 3.  Though, they have no release date planned.  At least not yet.  Maybe when E3 starts next week we’ll get some more info, but I have a feeling this will be it for awhile.

All that being said, I’m not much of a PC gamer anyway, and my Xbox 360, and Xbox One still work, and the community is still somewhat present in those games, so I have plenty to play.  Due to that, I probably won’t be getting this game, or downloading it, or whatever when it inevitability doesn’t come out.

Farewell to Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is one of those castings that just fit perfectly.  His portrayal of the character, his enjoyment of it is something rare in the movie business.  That makes the above trailer all the more sad as it’s his final time playing the pivotal mutant.  The movie, named simply Logan is set in the future, and he is growing old.  There’s a clone of him too apparently.  I don’t know.  I’ve never read the comics, and I’m trying to distance myself following movies too closely before release, it ruins all the suspense.

Jackman’s shoes will be next to impossible to fill, if Fox is smart, they will allow a dozen or so years before they bring back that character into the main stream films.  Unfortunately, for casual fans, Wolverine is the face of X-Men, so that seems unlikely.

Planet Earth II

I never saw the first one, but this looks good.  I’m pretty amazed at some of the footage they were able to capture.  Either they had drones, or super high resolution cameras and then cropped it in very far.  It looks like a good couple of hours to waste when it premiers sometime this year as no date has been announced yet.

Rogue One

My worst fears are coming true.  That is the above trailer for the first spin off of the Star Wars franchise.  Tell me, does it look like a traditional Star Wars film?  Come on, answer that question honestly.  If you removed the obviously Star Wars things, TIE Fighters, and Storm Troopers, what do you have?  A generic space action movie.  There’s no sense of wonder, there’s no sense of adventure.  I get it, this is an off shoot of the main story line, but it bears the Star Wars name, I hate to say it, but that used to mean something back in the day.  Yes, even if you take the prequel series into account, those trailers made you excited.  The final films might not have been up to your (and I say your because plenty of people actually did like them) standards, but the trailers were something else.

This trailer for Rogue One, it doesn’t invoke Star Wars to me.  And that’s a big problem.  It’s already visible in what’s happening to the Marvel films, and it will happen to Star Wars.  The die hard fans (which at one point in my life I was) will spend money on the movies regardless of how good or bad or bland they are, but the general public will be over whelmed, and desensitized to them.

When Episode One was announced it was international news.  When Episode VII was announced, it was international news.  People have waited decades for those two premiers.  Now it will be a yearly occurrence.  Doesn’t that seem to detract from the magic that Star Wars is supposed to convey?

Army of One

https://youtu.be/bf1PRaoJFwk

Nicholas Cage is back in what could be his return to greatness.  He stars in this true story of a guy from Colorado on who was tasked by divine intervention to find and capture Osama Bin Laden.  Seriously, it’s hilarious, you should watch the trailer.  It’s called Army of One.

Unfortunately, it’s not being released in theaters, only On Demand this coming November.  I think you should still watch it.  I might, it looks fantastic!

Return to the Perl

I had heard there was going to be a 5th Pirates of Caribbean film, I just forgot about it.  The above teaser gives us the first glimpse of this movie out next spring.  I must say, it the CGI looks good.  As for the story, no idea, according to IMDb though, Will Turner is returning, so that’s cool.
