Blast from the past

What if Halo was an RTS(Real-time strategy)? Or a third-person shooter? Or it had 32 weapons, different vehicles, and you could ride a lizard? Well it used to be all of these things. Check out this look back at early builds of Halo with narration by some Bungie guys. They go through and name the vehicles and weapons too, like the “gravity wrench” (pictured), the speargun, the alien rocket launcher, the “stealth tank,” the “horseshoe crab” and more.

    Awesome vid.

    They should have kept the feature of when you’re driving the Warthog, a second reticle tells you where the gun is pointed.

    And you have to click the picture to view the video.

    I like how for Halo 2 they re-used old ideas…like the SMG, Beam Rifle, Fuel Rod Cannon, Sword, Gauss Warthog, Spectre…they were all in the origonal build but left out of H1 :D.
