Forge

YouTube - Halo: Reach - Vidoc 3: Forge World

The architect in me is really excited about the new forge. Forge was really limited and extremely difficult to use in Halo 3, so this looks like a HUGE improvement with endless possibilities.


Reflection, Zealot, Spire previews

YouTube - Halo: Reach - Multiplayer Maps (Ivory Tower, Midship)

Reflection is the Ivory Tower remake and Zealot is a Midship/Heretic inspired map, which looks horrible.

Really looks like a perfect remake of Ivory Tower. I love how bright it is. This video shows how stupid armor lock is though.

I'm not much for making maps and things like that. I would suck really hard at it. I'm not that creative. I'll play on what you make, though!

I came.

Just another reason why Reach will be great. A fantastic ending to a legendary series.

Here's another gameplay vid. This one is on the Ascension (Halo 2) remake called Pinnacle.

I always hated this map in Halo 2, but mostly because of the imbalance of the weapon placements, not to mention the banshee. I have to admit, this one looks pretty sick if it's balanced correctly and there's no banshee.

And this is Zealot, the so-called Midship inspired map.

This map is nothing like Midship except that it's Covenant-themed and circular. The layout seems a lot more like Assembly. Seems like a pretty crappy map. I don't like all the lifts and everything.

Also, I think they went way overboard with the medals and announcer calls. First Strike? Please.

First Strike? Please.
This is an example of Halo and CoD borrowing from each other. CoD borrowed double, triple, and higher kills from Halo. MW2 gives a small points boost for getting the first kill.

Looks super sweet. The thing Im excited for is when everybody starts forging and comes up with awesome new custom games, just like in Halo 3, only better.
