Halo 4, Infinity radio chatter.

In the new xbox Halo 4 portal, there is a soundfile of radio chatter heard. Since the accompanying video shows the same code as the earlier ARG video, I thought it may be worthwhile to write a transcript down of what is being said. Alas, my English is not very good. Perhaps anyone wants to give it a go?

I don’t hear anything.

what xbox halo 4 portal?

what does A.R.G mean? o.O

> what does A.R.G mean? o.O

Alternate reality game. It might give hints to the plot or something. Some other Halo games have had them before, I believe.

Listened to the audio. Didn’t really have anything in it, just some standard ship-chatter “ambience”, I suppose.

This is what I got from that audio, it’s not perfect, but it might help others listen easier and if you can improve on it, feel free.

I’m pretty sure I heard “Spartan Shadow Squad” in there soemwhere.

It appears another ship has come to Requiem looking for Infinity. I wonder how far this is in campaign?
