Good Morning, Worm, Your Honor...
I'd meant to post this yesterday, but things got busy... RVideo went to a little trouble to capture a full view of the Gravemind cutscene in Halo 2, using a devcam. (This is considerably more difficult than it sounds, because that particular scene already has scripted camera motion, rotating around the characters; it's a delicate dance to keep your focus in this environment.) The view he provides allows you to see the entire cave Gravemind is sitting in - and, in fact, all of Gravemind. It's a view behind the curtain; it's like a panning shot that shows you how a filmmaker created a shot in a movie. You see the props that don't normally make it onscreen. It's pretty cool, but if you're one of those that loves the magic of the presentation, you might want to give this a miss, because it definitely shows you where the limits are. (I'm putting a spoiler tag on this post, as well, because Gravemind himself is a Halo 2 story spoiler.) You can grab this in WMP9 format (28.6 mb) or QuickTime format (32.6 mb). I say thanks to RVideo for the peek! (Louis Wu 00:57:53 UTC)
