Bungie’s pre-holiday update: responses to vidoc impressions

Oh snap.

People may want to sing the praises to Bungie‘s Halo 3 teaser, but there’s still the vocal minority that felt underwhelmed by the said trailer and the video documentary which was also released. Well, the devs got some words for the naysayers, as well as for the folks who are keeping their faith in Bungie’s ability to make Halo 3 super special.

For the most part, Bungie expected some of the backash of the video documentary since, they mention,  “the tubes that supply the interwebs are lubricated by rage.” When people started complaining about the graphics and how they were unfinished, Bungie expected to hear that because the game is still in development. To the critics and fans, Frank O’Connor writes, they’re simply offering a preview without any filters:

ThereÂ’s no spin, or damage control and weÂ’re absolutely unapologetic. Halo 3 is in development and when weÂ’re ready to show you polished graphics, weÂ’ll do that in our own good time. But weÂ’re still going to continue to bring you peeks behind the curtain.

As for the Brutes, O’Connor stressed their importance in this game as baddies, with their plans for the Brutes to become an equivalent to the previous games’ elite enemies. Worse, still, for the budding Master Chiefs out there, is that you’re not just going to be taking down a pack of Brutes, because you’ll also have to take out the friends that they brought along with them. 

Man, is Halo 3 going to be interesting. We wish they weren’t going on hiatus for the holidays, but we can’t blame them. They have lives and families beyond the fragmented Multiverse“>multiverse of video games. ‘Til the multiplayer beta comes out, we’ll just have to survive with Gears of War or some good old Xbox Halo 2.
