  1. Awesome blog man! This is my new daily Halo news source, instead of the Waypoint forums! I love Halo and Transformers! If you're interested, you can check out my Transformers blog!

  2. I really don't like the heavily Japanese influenced art style they are using for some of these new armor permutations. Looks more like Metal Gear than Halo.... like a bunch of rediculous space ninjas...

    1. I've gotta admit that I'm also struggling with the aesthetic of the armour.

      To me this looks like a saggy bottom with a bum-bag on the back :

  4. SO i Have a theory about the armor if there all unlock-able maybe the "exclusives" just mean Early access to seeing as you have to unlock them maybe you just get to have them at the beginning just a theory

    1. This is a possibility, I suspect they won't be though. Hopefully there'll be so many choices of armour skin that missing out on a few won't be so bad.

      It's all speculation and theory, but I reckon the actual armour will be unlockable in game, but the skin/paintjob will be exclusive. The wording with each retailer is slightly different so it's hard to be 100% sure.

  5. Love your blog Cowboy. I check here everyday. I've also linked you on my blog roll.

    Keep up the great work.

  6. as soon as you unlock the armor, the skin should be accessible
    i think this is where spartan points come into play, the points are like the currency where you 'buy' weapon skins, armor permutations/skins, similar to crysis and their 'token' system, this is just my theory

  7. Grrr.. Once again, I do not like all of these exclusive retail and location exclusives. At least I know that I am getting the Limited Edition of Halo 4, and there will be some sweet things in there! Just want to know that the digital(Avatar and in-game) things look like! If there is a skin or something that is a pre-bonus but is also in the Limited Edition, then I know where not to pre-order it!

  8. i hope they dont over do the armour skins and make it difficult to see what team (colour) someone is
    the last armour skin hazop/forest would be terrible if you could customize the colour the white pattern which i assume you can. you could change the colour of the armour detail since halo2.
    (they may force you if you are on red tem to make your armour detail orange or brown and if your on blue to make it green or electric blue)
    regardless i love customizability and having my personal unique murderious super soldier in matchmaking and the new firefight.

  9. I would be glad if you could link my Halo forum thread where I have compiled all pre-ordering info.

  10. I'm still debating if these are included in the Limited Edition or not. We haven't had any images of what's inside the LE. In my opinion if these are in the LE, it will most likely give 343i big bucks.

    1. They're not in the LE. If they were different retailers wouldn't have different skins, and they wouldn't advertise it alongside the LE as you'd already be getting it. The LE will have an exclusive skin, but the skins listed above will be extra to that, like the recon armour with Reach pre-orders.

    2. Yeah but still, don't you think it's strange that we haven't seen images of the stuff in the LE? Don't you think we would have known by now? I may be wrong but it does seem strange to me.

    3. Why would you want to spoil what's in the LE anyway?
      For the LE they will most likly stick to Bungie's tradition of having an exclusive armour piece that no one will be able to unlock unless they have baught the LE. Much like the flaming helmet but obviously not as cool as this game has taken a new art style.
