This weekend is San Diego Comic Con, and 343 is there in force to talk about Halo: Nightfall and the Master Chief Collection. On Thursday, they had the Nightfall panel, where we got our first look at the series, which is the subject of this show. With our guests FinalPOSTMORTEM and TDSpiral, we talk about how Nightfall will incorporate into the current Halo Universe, what we could see in the series, and Locke’s integral part in Halo 5: Guardians. Also, here is the trailer for Halo: CE SPV3 from CMT.
During yesterday’s Master Chief Collection panel at San Diego Comic Con, we got our first cinematic look at what is to come from Blur Studio and their efforts for the remastered Halo 2 Anniversary cinematics. We were shown frames from the upcoming cutscenes at E3 earlier this year. Needless to say, they’re stunning at the least and can we have this already?
