Podtacular 263: Reclaimer’s Speculation

Download | Shownotes
We were all dazzled by what we saw from the Halo 4 panel at Halo Fest, but we really haven’t had the chance to speculate here on the show what we might expect to see from the upcoming Halo Reclaimer Trilogy. So we decided to take the Halo Lore master from HBO, GrimBrother One and speculate on what we could possibly see in the new games. We are also joined by Elusive Eagle from Spirits of Fire. If you’re at all interested in discussions that break down what we saw in the Conception Art Trailer, you’ll want to take a listen. Funnyboy and Zant117 from the community also join us. Enjoy
