@  Buns : (18 June 2019 - 03:45 AM) hot damn
@  Buns : (18 June 2019 - 03:45 AM) Bnus
@  Buns : (18 June 2019 - 03:45 AM) Does my name still have a filter?
@  Buns : (18 June 2019 - 03:45 AM) bleep bloop
@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:06 PM) I liked everything about the trailer, and felt the power of the music watching it as well. But I also like the hunt the truth trailers a lot too and the game was nothing like it.
@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:05 PM) there* I'm hype to game on more than 60 fps on a console hopefully with the new xbox
@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:04 PM) I think it's more about personal opinion and not what the RIGHT way to go with the story is or what YOU may want to see. With a franchise that has been in so many peoples hands over the years their is bound to be something YOU wont like, but obiously its made in a way for someone else to enjoy. Take halo 5 for example, I love it. Not so much story wise but I feel the multiplayer is the best out of all halos.
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:52 PM) Zeta Halo, and I've said this a billion trillion times now, its history. It was once the location that held The Primordial - the last known Precursor along with Mendicant Bias who was the Precursor/Gravemind's overseer
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:51 PM) Location for 1. We're back on a Halo which seems like it should be the obvious destination given the name but is not feasible without a time skip (which is what happened)
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:50 PM) Let's talk about things we actually liked about the trailer
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:25 AM) Especially versus Cortana, who cares about him as more than just a weapon, who's offering him some actual, personal fulfilment
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:25 AM) Have Chief finally start questioning his place in the UNSC, the morality of the UNSC, how far his loyalties go when they treat him as expendable and replaceable
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:24 AM) That should have been the core conflict of Halo 5 - have the Created just be a framing device for it, as the Didact was for Halo 4's real story
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:23 AM) And then in Halo 5 - again, you've got a more literal version of it in Blue vs Osiris. Old Spartans vs New Spartans
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:22 AM) You've got a character in Del Rio who treats them both the same way - 'things have changed while you've been away'
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:22 AM) The whole underlying theme of Halo 4 was obsolescence - Cortana literally points it out to Chief, "they don't care about you, they replaced you!"
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:21 AM) The Spartan-IVs frustrate me in particular because there's so much potential for them to have a strong role in the story
@  Jack Of Harts : (17 June 2019 - 09:27 AM) By the way, what actually happened to the ODSTs? There's no mention of them at all in Halo 4 or 5, especially with Buck now being a Spartan-IV
@  Jack Of Harts : (17 June 2019 - 09:25 AM) I don't see Spartan-IVs as "real Spartans", I see them more as just enhanced ODSTs
@  Azaxx : (17 June 2019 - 09:21 AM) Now without a major overhaul, like ditching the Spartan IV's, high tech domination of Humanity and the lack of emphasis on being the Chief, it's going to be hard for 343i to captivate the core audience who want to be reminded of the glory days of the original trilogy

  1. Activision Facing A 5% Layoff Despite "Reco...

    The cut in staff is alleged to be about 5% of the workforce, which is monumental after such a carefree conference. Activision Publishing is allegedly the only branch applying these layoffs, with Blizzard and MLG notably not affected. Developers Infinity Ward, Beenox, and Treyarch took the brunt of the hit, with around 20 people laid off at Infinity Ward, the developers of the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise, Infinite Warfare.

    This also comes after Activision’s CEO stated that he felt Infinite Warfare did not resonate with fans, and promised a return to form in 2017. Activision reported a “better-than-expected” fourth quarter, citing record sales numbers. Their line-up for 2017 so far looks precariously slim, with only two main titles, Destiny 2 and Call of Duty, gracing the market so far.

  2. Nearly 18,000 Job Layoffs Anticipated at Microsoft

    Microsoft recently announced that unfortunately after the recent acquisition of Nokia, 18,000 employees will be fired and forced into unemployment within the next year, the majority in the Nokia department but some in the Xbox department as well.

    If you hadn't heard, Microsoft recently bought out and adopted the Nokia brand of phones and electronics for 72 Billion USD, and they will be laying off a large amount of employees, though the number wasn't expected to be this large. GameSpot.com reports that Microsoft has revealed that the number is right at 18,000 jobs being affected. About 13,000 of these are in Nokia, but the Xbox Marketing Team will also be affected heavily. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella did say that new jobs would be opened up, not stating how many, and that employees will be offered some basic assistance in finding new employment opportunities. This is the largest layoff event in the history of Microsoft, making about a 14% cut into the total amount of 100,000 or so employees. Investors surprisingly had a positive response in the first hours, however the stock quickly dropped soon after. More details will be made available soon, and I will update the article when we receive news.
