    Not sure if I'm asking this right, IIRC Halo(s) were never a true (at most hybrid) deferred renderer, did they switch to Forward+ or did they switch to deferred for 5? Any guesses/links?

    No idea about H5 really, they haven't said much.

    ----

    Speaking of dynamic lighting... it's kinda funny there are only human weapons in the beta so far.

    What time does the beta start? I read on reddit that it starts at 5am UK time. I myself am US central time. According to my world clock on my phone it should have started at 11pm central time. It isn't online for me it says "begins on December 29th see you then".

    *!*8 just placed in _Iron_ 3.

    Goodness =( Regrettably it took me several rounds of play to get used to 'halo' again, but I didn't think I was doing too poorly at the end. But the match making seems to be right if you are winning about 50% of your matches you are correctly placed.

    Hmm. By the sound of that preview, 343i is desperately trying to make a Call of Halo game.

    I just hope the game ships with Big Team Battle, Invasion (from Reach), and Firefight. I really don't give a shit about their small map 4v4 team slayer stuff.

    Also, after playing a lot of raids in Destiny, I think more PvE options would work really well in Halo. I wish 343 would explore this idea more.

    Good to know... Wonder what BRDFs they rolled with.

    Just add some glows onto the armour. :p

    Aaron Greenberg creates some serious hype about the upcoming Halo 5:

    Halo 5 is gonna be huge. It should be one of the biggest entertainment releases of the year if we do our job right. I think what we’ve got with Master Chief and Locke is a marketer’s dream. The game is just super-innovative. I think this is a title that 343 has dreamed of making, and they’re innovating in ways that our jaws are dropping.

    So we wanna be able to step up and deliver the type of products quality and marketing to match the quality of the game. That’s a challenge on us. But we have no doubt that the product they’re making is gonna be pretty amazing.

    It’s such a deep story. To me it’s like the closest thing to playing in a real movie, you know. I love campaign. I play multiplayer and I enjoy it, but I just love to get deep in the campaign and co-op you know, and Halo was kind of the birth of that, and also at the same time has innovated the multiplayer, so I’m excited with what they’re doing with Halo 5, and we’ll be revealing more soon"

    I really hope 343 releases some footage of the campaign. I would like to see the direction they are taking the single-player as far as how big the encounters are. That and see how far the graphics have come since the beta. Haven't touched Halo 4 in MONTHS and I rarely play TMCC. So as you can see, my confidence for 343 in delivering a true and playable Halo experience is wearing thin.

    I'm willing to give them a chance with Halo 5, but it won't be a day 1 purchase like other Halos in the past. I'll wait and see what reviewers and other players have to say about it. If it's all good, 343 will have my $60.

    Meh, after all the MCC problems...should we really believe in another 343 PR talk?

    Super innovative? Better would be super polished and working with actual dedicated servers.
