    if your a halo fan alot of people have been waiting to know what happened after halo wars looking at the xbox and halo twitter and youtube after the announcement people were loving the announcement
    also halo wars came out a long time before ryse so thats why

    if you look up halo wars alot of critics held it up as a RTS that showed you could actually make good RTS games on console.

    Halo wars was less a huge selling system mover like halo and more of a treat for halo fans

    I definitely get what Nolan North is saying about not wanting to hear the previous performance. This is a bit of a unique situation for a voice actor, in replacing another performance, not even for a localization dub. With Nolan North also being good with impressions for some of his ADR performances for actors, it's especially easy to find the existing performance dictating your interpretation of the material and having it influence your performance. He's pretty experienced, so I'd imagine he has his own comfort levels and knows his limits, how to get the best of his performance.

    And as far as worrying that he'll just sound like Drake, he's admitted that it's become a problem since Uncharted with people casting him and then only wanting him to use the "Drake voice" despite it being mostly his normal voice. Assassin's Creed, and Dark Void are examples of this. But don't forget he also did the Space Core and Adventure Core for Portal 2, as well as Sigmund in Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, just to name a few examples of AI/robots he's portrayed in games before. Not to mention a lot of his other roles that are much more varied and almost entirely devoid of Nathan Drake. Either way, I'm curious to see what he'll sound like as the Ghost, and I hope it eventually leads to the Ghost being a more memorable character for a game that really needs some memorable characters.

    The reason for the retcon of Dinklebot, well that Bungie gave, is that they've gone back and 'questified' the Vanilla portions of Destiny and worked House of Wolves and Dark Below into the story better, so for example you unlock the Vestian Outpost after you visit the Reef in the story.

    Also, there is going to be more play between Ghost and the other NPCs like Zavala and such; and mode where you can bring him up to give you lore on things throughout the story and stuff....so it was pointless keeping Dinklage and then having North all of a sudden start talking.

    My guess is Peter Dinklage wasn't up for the committment that Destiny is going to be, in that you're looking at a prospective 10 year cycle voicing all sorts of expansions and he is a busy busy man with GoT and other projects he wants to do....so I dont think he was the right fit in the role going forward.

    Plus....he didn't come across as a stellar voice actor in the game...whether that was Bungie's fault or his, I dunno; but having Nolan North as the voice should elevate Ghost to a proper supporting character/companion since he is able to commit to the amount of work that will be needed going forward.

    As for Bond....Timothy Dalton was the Daniel Craig style Bond before Daniel Craig was. License to Kill is just Brutal, and Living Daylights was just my favourite one ever.

    Aston Martin has always been Bond's signature car since the DB5 in Goldfinger, but there have been others. Lotus in the Roger Moore era, BMW in the Pierce Brosnan era are the notable ones. Until it came back to AM in Die Another Day, and probably will remain that way forever. Aston Martin will forever be linked to Bond.

    Don't steam games need to be approved. How would that game get approved since it was a scam

      A few games have gotten though because of irresponsibility of those that validate them. things can always slip by.

      Unless I've heard wrong, Ryse was originally going to be a 360 kinect title and they reworked the whole game. It could've gotten a small reveal that far back. I'm going on what I've heard though.

      Halo Wars was released a year and half(Feb 2009) before Ryse was even announced(E3 2010) as Codename: Kingdoms. So yeah, I have no idea what she was talking about. Plus, they all don't seem to be in the know(ha) with the hardcore Halo community because Halo Wars 2 has long been wanted. This wasn't a huge surprise either. The Spirit of Fire reappeared not too long ago in Halo: Escalation.

    The Halo 4 360 was mostly worth the $...except that the case is made of cheap plastic that came cracked in the mail...I'll wait to get a limited edition Xbox One (since i already have an xbox one) until there's a slim :P

    Companies give refunds for all sorts of products, it doesn't mean you routinely use these things once and return them. Ryan's right - 2hrs is what you need to determine whether you enjoy the games or not. Let's wait to see what the developers of 2-4hr well rated games actually say, not what a guy suspected of a scam says.

    in regards to Lara Croft killing people, i would say it absolutely depends on the player in control of her. it may be completely optional to take people out with her.
