Agreed, but all the better if Bungie decides to throw it in. And it is the Beta, it even says BETA BUILD in the beginning, at the bottom.
I find this somewhat funny (not the vid itself, that's just plain perfection, wrapped up in a solid gold box), but the fact that most leaks so far have been vids captured with a shakeycam, and the quality suggests a cellphone camera. But this, this was caught with a high-quality capture card, professionally edited, covering up all GamerTags (or numbers, or whatever they're using for this), with some music thrown in.
I can only assume, that if this will be in the Beta (Which I pray it is), then this vid was made by one of the Microsoft employees who got in through the Friends and Family program (who evidently weren't very good friends).
And, just for good measure: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:
It's an embeded Flash video, and you technically can't downloaded it, but JediFraz posted a good tutorial in the Halo Movie Forum, in the Thread about Haloid. There's also a few video downloaders out there.
Anyone else notice the really wierd Jumping animation?
Also, note that the Spartan Laser doesn't fire just one beam, but several, all pretty close together.
Also the Blue Grid that flashes across the screen when you respawn, that EGM mentioned very briefly.
i hope the music in the video is actually in halo 3 . i also like the new HUD. reminds me of the civil war. also, was i the only one to notice the *cough* SHIELD BUBBLE*cough* in the game trailers video?
Also there is a new phrase. At around 6:00 in the vid, the guy melees him with a fuel rod canon, and it says YOU WERE SMASHED (not beat down) BY XYZ... But for smaller weapons, it is still beat down. Maybe melees got new power upgrade...
