Today, I made the decision. I am about to do the hardest thing ever, after seeing the reveal of the game and understanding what Halo 4 will be about- I will shut myself out of the internet, and gaming sites and everything. I failed at Mass Effect 3, but I will not fail here.
Right now, everyone can talk freely and speculate but come February 29 (at the Xbox Showcase), this thread will officially go live. Bookmark this, people, you aren’t going to want to search through the forum for it- titles have ruined things for me countless times before. And at the toughest of times, when we see a Halo 4 trailer icon on our Youtube home pages, we will come to this thread and b**** like we never had before.
I am a weak human being, I can’t do this alone. But the love I have for Halo 3- a game to which I came in knowing nothing about- will keep me going. Join me dark goers, we must unite and survive this terrible experience together!!!
I do expect there to be that one little a** that will come to our thread and post a list of new info just to troll us, but hopefully the mods will be on our side, ready to eliminate those trolls.
Hopefully I’m not alone, I know that Reach’s marketing destroyed the game for me, and that 343i revealed most of Anniversary before release as well. Maybe this is different, but I’m am not about to take that chance.
My spoiler-free plan:
Watch the reveal of the game in order to make sure I want to buy it (it would have to really suck to make me doubt).
If in doubt, watch the next trailer and make a decision.
Only watch Multi-Player videos if I’m absolutely certain that the maps aren’t taken or implemented into campaign. If they are, go COMPLETELY dark.
If I have an important question, and want a vague answer, I will send out a scout* to do this for me. For instance “Is there a good Forge Map with the retail game?” or “Does it seem like the story has potential?”
If I find myself watching a video or reading a bit of news about Halo 4, I must slit my wrist.
What are scouts?
Whenever one of us has a legitimately important question to do with the game, a scout will click the “NEW TOPIC” button and ask, while making it clear he/she wants a vague, non-revealing answer, ask the question to the wider community. This will be a risk, still, considering how many Light Goers are out there that might just spoil everything. After getting an answer, they will return to this thread and report their findings.
Anyone willing to scout, please say so in the comments.
Our current scouts are:
This thread has one rule:
NO SPOILERS WILL BE TOLERATED.
Small update: NO SPOILER TAGGING EITHER.
Good luck to us!
