If I had a system to play it. Looking through this concept art collection, I see some stuff that would make for a rad RTS. Aliens with little glowy sword things that can jab a man to death? Awesome. Err.. guys in armour.. Okay, I admit that little stabber dooby is all I know about Halo, but I know that aliens generally make for killer RTS games.
I haven’t previously taken much notice to Halo Wars, but the concept art xbox360fanboy unearthed really pulled the right strings with me.
xbox360fanboy do a good summary of who I’ve come to know as apehalodude.png…
Brutes, for the three of you unfamiliar with Halo, are huge, muscular, gorilla-like soldiers with the kind of grim determination usually reserved for freight trains. The Brute uniform in Halo Wars — which takes place before the firstHalo — looks decidedly different than the uniforms in any of theHalo games. Our heads are filled with all of the nerdy reasons for — and implications of — the differences. We won’t jump down that rabbit hole just now (though we hope Ensemble gives us a few hints).
Cool, understand most of that. Maybe I’ll be surprised and find there is actually a story behind Halo.
