Apologies if you've seen it already, but I just laid my peepers on this behind the scenes Halo 4 video. It contains a short look at the game and the people who make, which is interesting and all, but I was a bit blown away by just how good the game looks.
Sure that's shallow, but with Halo games I've been used to lowering my expectations with regards to the visuals. That's never been a problem for me -- I love the feel and scope of Halo, and that's always remained -- but it's almost surprising to see a Halo game that is, once again, raising the bar aesthetically.
It really does look amazing.
Watching the previews and videos for Halo 4 has been a little bit of a rollercoaster for me. I'm pretty passionate about the series, and I feel like I'm being yanked between excitement and dread. Hopefully the end result can live up to the name.
