http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOh0fM-75Ew Video of the new maps. I seriously doubt this will be here when I wake up tomorrow. If it still is, you're slacking Microsoft. :P

The only bad thing on the vid is that the one who made it is a lazy hacker... but the maps are great.

Would have been awesome if some of the concepts made by this guy would have been done for the game: http://www.isaachannaford.com/

On the topic of Halo Combat Evolved being remade, while this is a little off-topic from the rest of the discussion as well as only a rumor, apparently Halo 2 is being remastered as well. I hope so, cuz I've honestly only played about 10 minutes of Halo 2's singleplayer and have never even touched the MP.

The campaign was for Halo 2 was pretty good and I thought the graphics were good for its time but I'm glad to see that its getting remade. That was a fun game.

I'm not so sure about the Halo 2 rumor (yet - but I'm sure at some point they'll work on it). I just hope they're using some sort of Bungie tech for the engine of Halo HD, otherwise it just won't play the same.

If they ever do remake Halo 2, I hope they look into a lot of the cut content for the game and restore it. Forerunner Tank needs to see the light of day and so does the Flood Juggernaut even though it was only supposed to show up twice in the vehicular Arbiter levels. Heck, maybe even restore the last three levels that got put into Halo 3 and change Halo 3 so there's more time on the Ark (Guardian Forest)

I guess I'm one of the few people who plays Halo for everything, not just Campaign or Matchmaking.

I also happen to love finding beta objects in games so that's why I know about this stuff.
Hidden/Spoiler:
Like in the original script Miranda hated Chief because she felt that he was responsible for the death of her father, and that hatred eventually led to her having a talk with the prophets that resulted in Chief having a nuke welded on his back.
The Mongoose was in Halo 2 and had guns. It was supposed to be used on Burial Mounds but they couldn't balance it with the Warthog and Ghost.
The Covenant Bomb (aka Covenant Space Pickle) was never intended to be in the game, Chief was just supposed to leave the Cairo (similar to Noble 6 falling through space in Reach) and then fall into the Cruiser, which was a level like Truth and Reconciliation, and then eventually blowing up that engine room seen in the final game.
Two cut races, the Drinol and the Stalker, eventually came back in Halo 3 as the Flood Pure Form Tank and Stalker, respectively.
The cut levels at the end of the game were going to be like the beginning of Halo 3, Chief lands on Earth and eventually finds the Ark Portal. That would have been the real cliffhanger ending.
Cut Flood forms include the Flood Juggernaut (only intended to be fought with vehicles, for some reason it ended up in the Gravemind files) and the Shielded Carrier Form (Jackal shield on the front of a Carrier). The way the SCF looks implies that it was just a working idea and was never intended to be used.
The Pulse Beam was supposed to be a usable weapon, but may have been replaced with the Sentinel Major Beam. The Pulse Beam is still used by Enforcers ("Red Needler" rounds) and there is still one Sentinel Minor who actually fires and drops a Covenant Needler in the game.
Due to real world events, some aspects of the Covenant had to be changed. The Arbiter's original name was the Dervish and a scene where brutes were about to execute a marine had to be cut.
Not much is known about the level Forerunner Tank, but Jason Jones has stated that "Awesomeness would ensue," and that the Tank itself would have the same geometry of the Gondola in the Arbiter level and would have featured Gravemind's tentacles rushing around like freight trains in the background.
The Heretic plot was very different through most of the game's development. Originally, it was set on Basis (moon near Alpha Halo) instead of Threshold (Gas Giant near Alpha Halo). The Arbiter level on Delta Halo with the snow/ash borrowed much from this level. Also, at another point, all of the Heretics were Hunters. I really hope they were like the Halo 1 Hunters at that point, or somebody went crazy. :P

Some things i have found on Reach...

Hidden/Spoiler:
Reference to George Lucas´s THX on Halo: Reach:

1138

To find it, play Lone Wolf on Easy with all skulls except Iron, and kill more than 20 enemies, and kill an Ultra by any type of close combat.

Reference to Jhon 117 and Independence day on Costa Rica on Reach:

117 & 1821

To get that, play Lone Wolf, on Easy with all skulls except iron, kill more than 50 enemies, kill a general with close combat, and you get 1704, kill more than 100 and kill a general with close combat, and you get 1821, 1821-1704=117

Bungie´s Seven on Ranks:

Currently, i know of three ranks that will award you certain number of credits for the game bonus.

Mythic: 340, 3+4=7
Noble: 374, 3+7+4=14
Eclipse: 412, 4+1+2=7


EDIT: the weekly update today at Bungie wanst something great, just epic pics of elites.
