    [align=center]- Halo 4 - [/align]

    Please explain to me, what the fudge this is.

    Since when did Halo become a series on YouTube? I'm not complaining or anything, this is amazing and very well done. I couldn't begin to imagine how much this would have cost to put all of this together.

    What I understand so far that yes Halo 4 is a game, and the gameplay looks amazing! I can't wait to play it for myself :3

    I'm just curious as to what this Halo 4 YouTube series is about? Is it relative to the storyline of the game? Or is it a side story? What's the purpose? Promo? Profit? Would have cost a pretty penny to make.

    Military question:

    After watching this I'm curious to know why do soldiers refer to their female higher ranking officers as 'sir'? I would have thought they would have said 'mam' instead.

    Shooters like Halo are a double edged sword.

    On one hand you're glad twitch shooters exist in some form in the current generation, on the other you're frustrated it isn't on the godly-games pedestal along with Tribes and Quake.

    As for the youtube vid, it's only a miniseries leading up to the release of Halo 4, IIRC. They've been testing the waters with the live-action stuff for a while now, since Halo 3 released I think. No doubt gearing up for the feature film.

    Since I am a big Halo fan, (reason why I usually say Spartans Never Die, Their just missing in action). Basically forward unto Dawn is a live action web series of the Halo universe and it will release once every week until the release of Halo 4 this year.

    Its basically promo material but it isn't based on the actual Spartan Super Soldiers (The Guys/Girls that wear the Armor like the Master Chief) that Halo is known for. Instead its based on the UNSC next generation of Soldiers, so yes its kind of a side story and I'm not too sure myself if this will be somehow tied into the story of Halo 4.

    Never the less, its done really well and was quite a large investment project.

    Yeah it's pretty much purely promotional. Very well made, and it's pretty badass so far. Judging by the name, it clearly, to some degree, is about The Dawn frigate, which was split in half if I remember right. Apparently it's Microsoft's biggest and most expensive promotion of a game, being live action and all.

    It's pretty awesome so far, and Halo 4 looks just as awesome. :)

    Oh, and about your military question, I don't think they actually refer to female soldiers as "sir", it's just a movie/video game thing and all that. In our current military, female superior officers are referred to as ma'am, or mam or whatever.

    Only female officers of the Halo universe are referred to as "Sir".

    Also, my dick has never been so hard, my wife B jelly.

    What Carter says at 1:21 is already enough to describe my service record.
