Halo wars wallpaper by PD-Black-Dragon Halo wars wallpaper by PD-Black-Dragon
Haven't done a wallpaper in a while so decided to do one for one of the games I'm eagerly anticipating, Halo wars. My only regret with this one is that I feel the quality could've been better. This is despite taking screen shots from HD versions of the trailers. To make this less noticeable I flattened the image, duplicated it, colorized the top layer, used a Gaussian Blur on Soft Light (on the same layer) and then re-flattened it. It's a lot less complicated than it sounds, trust me :P

My goodness, I love the way everything looks in this game, Marines, Elites, Spartans, Arbiter, Chieftan, GOODNESS GRACIOUS IT MAKE MY EYES ORGASM. I was really disappointed in Reach's Elites and brutes and a little in the marines.

I actually thought the Elites in Reach strongly resembled the ones in Halo Wars, but that's just me. I was however, disappointed with the Brutes as well. To me they looked too much like Gears of War's Locusts. They should've just kept their overall design from Halo 3, but with different armor. I also wish Bungie had given the Brutes a few more ranks to mix things up a little. I would've kept the Major, Captain Minor, Captain Ultra and the Ultra.

Love the trailer. They should make it a movie instead of a game ^^.
Nice wallpaper. Love the Arbiter in the background.

I know right. I have a feeling it's going to be epic. To bad this is Ensembles last game though.

I know. I should've known one would be included but it was still a surprise to me. I'm still trying to figure out why he was there in the first place since his role is primarily for suicidal missions. Clearly what was in the trailer was just the excavation of a Forerunner object where there was already a Zealot (Elite Commander) present.

The Zealot did mention something about an infection, so maybe the Flood was concern enough to deploy an Arbiter.

Looks awesome. And I love that there's an Arbiter in this game, albeit not the same one we're used to. :)
