    Those are just the wings sticking out of the front. They look odd because the ghost's all beaten up.

    I see what you're saying, but I still don't think it's a Ghost. The ghost is a relatively flat craft, whereas this has a bulky bottom section. They don't match up other than the wings. My guess is still that it's either a Phantom (drawn a little oddly), or a new ship we haven't seen yet. Both seem more likely than the artist just knowing nothing about the series.

    Man, you can even see the seat in the back of the thing. I don't see this bulky bottom thing you're talking about, either.

    Are you seeing it as being in the same orientation as the Ghost picture you posted? If so, I can see a little better how you would think it's a Ghost. However, I think given the context of the picture, the ship is moving away from the Chief, towards the structure.

    they're ghosts, the image was made by someone who clearly didn't know what they were, or didn't care because all the image is meant to be is a shitty mock-up for promo art that could be approved and made at a later point

    halo-3-20070622024235849.jpg

    that is also the rocket launcher we all know from halo and halo 2, only held backwards and at the hip for no reason. this art was not made to be an accurate representation of the game.

    That looks to me like he has just fired it from the shoulder and has brought it down to rest on his knee. For whatever reason.

    Yes, why on earth, would a rocket launcher, which fires rockets, which by their standard definition, involve a projectile that is propelled by firing gas through the back end, have a gas coming out the back end?

    Some of these were also mockups for the latest Halo novel cover art.

    Not all are for the game, some aren't Masterchief.

    Probably. Haloez 4 possibly. I dunno, The might NEED to finish this fight and setup for another whole new fight. So we finish one to our satisfaction only to realize it gets even bigger

    (Hopefully not, but this is my prediction)

    If only because Guitar Solo always sounds to me like the Wyld Stalyins riff from Bill and Ted.

    For some reason I thought it was much larger. Lack of anything to give perspective to its size didn't help.

    I really hope they expand the flood line up. I have a funny feeling their going to be the standard enemy in the game, not the brutes unless they really overturn how the brutes fight, because they were pretty boring as enemies.

    Why the fuck would you read a "leaked script" for Halo 3?

    It's like four months away, and if anything in that was real, you'll be disappointed when you actually play it.

    I'm actually just talking about the scenes from the WIRED article a while back, not a full leaked script.

    http://blog.wired.com/geekdad/2007/04/im_in_halo_3.html

    scan0001_2.jpg


    If you look, the scenes in the script match the scenes from the concept art we've just seen. Underground base, pelican landings, Voi, etc.

    I read it like 2 years ago. It had a cliff hanger ending which will not be the case with this game I guarentee (however you speel it) it.

    Yes. Rofl, I knew I was forgetting something, I felt uneasy after posting that, I was thinking "This can only end in shame".
