And mine. But given they way it radically changed from 07 to 10 I expected there was a lot of good ideas buried in the past.

Must you opended up old wounds Rasq? Another reminder of what could have been.

Man, what the hell happened over at ES? This is basically the perfect example of that picture where it shows all the guys saying "yeah lets make this and that and make it amazing!" Then the head guy just says "no!"

Those covie vehicles were damn pretty.

I'd be pissed at Ensemble... if they didn't make a lot of other good games.

I think towards the end Ensemble realized it was going to die so they decided to fuck halo up in protest.

ruining something in protest only hurts yourself in the end in the entertainment industry... as our past work is the only thing that helps us get future work... nobody would intentionally ruin a project and make their job troubles even worse

most people get let go at the end of a project anyways

Given that they dropped placeable buildings for socket bases because the former wasn't working well with the Xbox 360 controller, I would guess that a lot of this stuff was dropped for the same reason.

So, the moral of the story is, if you're not making an offbeat RTS like Pikmin, keep it on the PC.

I dunno. I guess I'd have to see the Chimera in action to render final judgment, but the Hydra... I prefer the Vampire, to be honest. The Hydra looks like Don Gagen realized halfway through development that Halo /isn't/ one of those franchises where the aliens influenced ancient Egyptian architecture.

"So, this is going to be our swan song. But we have to ask ourselves this: Do we want our final game to be a Halo game, or an Ensemble Studios game?"

I guess that's true, but I personaly don't believe that to be the case 100% of the time. Yes, RTS will ALWAYS be better on PC. But, I do belive it can be done on console as well. And whether you disagree with me or not, to me those games were the recent CnC games.

Well, I thought they looked cool at least. But I can see your points too. Little tweeks here and there to'em would've made all the difference. But yeah, what we got in turn (vampire & locust) I still like.

From reading that stuff, it seems a lot like it would make an amazing Company of Heroes mod/ripoff.

People have. The mod tools are workable, but far from being easy to use.

I rather have a full fledged game then a mod honestly.

But i dunno who i'd want to develop the game. I would love Relic to make the game, but i dont know if they'd make it.

Regardless the developer, there are just some changes to be made for the next game..

As long as HW2 has....

-No socket base crap
-actual turret placement
-THE FLOOD as a third race
-varied maps
-good custom games like halo
-a party system like.....halo
-a editor even if its simple like.....halo >.>
-actual balance! the rock paper scissors layout is cool... if it actually works
-a mining system like starcraft, man i would love to destroy my opponent economically... it can be like airdrop areas instead of the SC minerals...
-some more abilities like the ones listed
-have all the leaders be varied not UNSC -> Tanks or Covie -> Leader and SPAM
-have the game itself look good! If im going to be staring at this game for hours each match, at least make it nice to look at.
-Make all strategies viable. in HW all you need to do is BOOM to win. Rushing is fun and all, but not when the buildings are hard as fuck to destroy. Thats why there should be a mining based eco system >.>
-Make the team colors editable! Just have an option for a preferred color and a second preferred color. Green and Purple gets old.... FAST.
-have the game constantly updated... if you want a game to last you have to make sure its constantly balanced.

All the above is in no specific order, just what popped into my head at the time...

So yeah that stuff and HW2 should be significantly better. =D

Two words.

PATH FINDING.

Fix that and the rest you've brought and maybe we'll talk about a Halo Wars 2.

I don't really remember the game everyone wanted , just the community it spawned and a few notable events from HWF's brief existence.
