Are any of you surprised? Really?

At the general quality of what we saw, no. At the fact that the visuals are on par with Halo 2 Vista, yes.

An animated reticle is annoying because you are supposed to be looking through it, past it.  I don’t need it to dance for my attention.  A literal dot on the screen would work.  

Apparently the sound, bullet and muzzle flash aren't enough indicators of the weapon's cadence. 

Also apparently the bullet hit, the blood, the enemy flinch and the cries of pain aren't enough indicators you hit something. Apparently you need a literal hit indicator on top of that.

It’s mostly for multiplayer that hit markers are necessary

Watched the reveal. I basically have no reaction to it. Gameplay is what I would have expected; some improvement, but only ever marginal and only if treating Halo 4 as a baseline. Weird lack of punch for a gameplay/story reveal, the world feels empty and inconsequential.

The only speculation that still interests me is the premise that maybe the demo mission was actually, genuinely made in Forge and that's the real punchline holding the game together. Everything is super blocky because its forged, Infinite is a "platform" because Forge will let people make their own campaign missions and stuff, the map needs to be huge for the sake of having lots of environments, for Forge.

Yeah, if you're blind and stupid and can't see the giant yellow shield glow opponents have when you hit them.

Yeah I am

Went in with low expectations and left even worse.

Mouth agape at this point in the trailer, honestly. Like my mind couldn't process that this was Halo of all things, showcasing such choppy animation and ugly visuals live in front of millions, so casually. I froze for a moment. Not even Halo 5 did this.

I expected at the very least, decent visuals like 343 always delivered for their trailers.

Honestly, very much yes.

You've got to give it to 343, they are constantly achieving groundbreaking new lows.

At least on the carbine weapon and the commando, I think bloom might be present on that sidekick pistol but that pistol is like the gun fighter which is rapid fire that did have bloom. I only say this because even though the shots were accurate every time he shot with it I just wasn’t completely sure at times like when he shot that jackel but I guess he didn’t aim for the head

I think that campaign trailer should have shown off more weapons. Like, cool, they showed a couple new ones but we could've used more. 

And again there are 2 weapons i truly care about, the BR and the Magnum. Which one do i start with and can i 4 shot with it?

It just dawned on me that Halo 4 is probably going to remain the best game 343 has ever made. (not counting H2A)

Ask yourself this? Has there been a halo game made by 343 where you couldn’t 4 shot(do not dare bring up launch h4 or im hunting you down) ?

It was in the short gameplay reveal trailer.
