Halo Wars
this game is going to be great. Covenant of Halo Wars is a good clan for this game.

I would guess that Sensational is referring to the news that the studio making Halo Wars is going to close after completing the game, which does not bode well for support or patches or similar. I guess if the Xbox Live support is good out of the gate, there's not much to worry about, but...

Sadly it's true. Ensemble Studios has given us many good games over the years, not to mention the entire AoE series. It's almost depressing knowing that this will be their last game.

On another note I am eagerly awaiting this game, pre-ordered it way back when I got my copy of Halo 3. I look forward to seeing if they can actually pull off the UI and controls for a RTS on a console. Instead of chopping it up like so many other console games have managed to do with an utter lack of finesse. I have faith though.

Anyone seen the new video for it?

Quite the bad thing to be losing Ensemble Studios.

I wish they would have come out with Halo Wars for the PC as well. They could have marketed it as their Games for Windows Live much like Universe at War: Earth Assault. However, I doubt this will happen or at least anytime soon. Does anyone else remember in the late 90s the videos for Halo back when it was only on the PC and possibly a MMOFPS?

Yes sir, your guess is correct!

That's not at all what he said. But if that's how you wish to interpret it, who am I to stop the forum troll.
