Now's as good a time to ask: what is the practical point of those divots in the visors?

Well I meant the etched design on the face (the one you can see in the Halo 3 HUD), but now that you mention it there are random holes we haven't seen before.

Make sure you guys hang out in the chat room during the conference. Should be wild with the campaign kicking off the first 10 minutes.

If you ain't visiting Forward Unto Dawn this E3 you're missing out.


Three Sleeps.

Could the giant smoking orb MC is looking at be some sort of Forerunner prison apparatus?

Or maybe new enemies are giant orange orbs ;P

Considering the Chief "unleashes an ancient evil" you might be on to something, lol.

Don't look like a Cryptum though.

Hopefully Chief isn't too clumsy with his releasing of ancient evil, don't want it to be goofy.  Maybe him simply arriving starts a countdown of sorts to thaw whatever is in the prison; since it sees him as a reclaimer.

As for not looking like a Cryptum, do we really know what they look like?  I don't remember any vast descriptions of the Diadact's in the book.

There's a description. I don't recall it offhand, but it sure wasn't an orb.

Well, perhaps it was an orb; but buried in the ground.

Doesn't the whole cryptum like take off and turn into a ship?

Perhaps its not a cryptum and just more of a forerunner prison; a VERY ELABORATE prison, that is also orange and floating (I'm saying that is also some sick art).

I got the sense the Cryptum was sort of more along the lines of a sarcophagus... The resulting ship seemed to be a separate object on the Cryptum's island.

I agree Daed that it'd be bad for the Chief to do some boneheaded horror movie thing and read from the Necronomicon or something. I do hope it's more a passive activation.
