#393602 Site Poll 101: Which Armor Variant Do You Want Chief To Wear in Infinite?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 02 January 2019 - 09:31 AM

The new design is the ideal armor image. Some may not like it but it is what peak performance looks like. 


A combination of old and new is the best of both worlds. How can it get better?

#393442 Story

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 14 November 2018 - 06:29 PM

I would really like it to be reminiscent of Halo: CE where we are exploring Zeta Halo and we encounter the Flood. I wouldn't mind not having Covenant enemies so long as they aren't Promethean. I think Zeta Halo has a lot of story-telling potential and, if done properly, could tie in a lot of story threads relating to Mendicant Bias, Guilty Spark, and the Primordial.

#393380 Site Poll 98: What's your favourite Halo novel/comic?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 30 October 2018 - 10:54 AM

Man there’s a lot of good stuff to choose from and so much that I own and haven’t read!

Love Melody’s choice it’s up there for me.

I gotta go with Halo: First Strike. The action and storytelling is all there. It’s Blue Team being Blue Team. So imagine how awesome their introduction was in Halo 5 and then imagine a whole novel written about how they handle a mission much bigger than that (awesomeness to scale). We would have been long done for had it not been for Operation First Strike :salute:

#393369 Site Poll 97: Which Alpha-Nine member do you like most?

@UNSC Spartan-II ah indeed. I did mean New Blood not the new novel lol thank you good sir.

#393367 Site Poll 97: Which Alpha-Nine member do you like most?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 23 October 2018 - 04:55 PM

My favorite used to be Mickey for his sense of humor and awesome attitude. I was so super disappointed when they made him betray Buck in Bad Blood (fantastic novella). 


It is too hard for me to go against Gunny on this one. Buck has transcended past being an "ordinary" human ODST undergone modifications to become a Spartan IV as we all know. His most recent star appearance in Halo 5 just solidifies this decision for me because of his witty one-liners.




Twitter is coming up with some great answers for this. Another good week Spartan, nice. :thumbup:


By the way, where is the art from?

#393354 Site Poll 96: Who would replace John-117?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 16 October 2018 - 11:31 AM

I don't think anyone can replace John as the main protagonist of the series. I personally think Halo should take the approach of different view points each time and have their potential novel ideas be full length video games instead.


However, to answer this week's great poll, I think I would have to go with Locke. That may sound cliche but being Locke felt pretty cool in Halo 5 and he has a great team to work with already on top of having a small amount of backstory to really develop. I don't think he will ever be as famous as Master Chief but Locke taking over the role of the main protagonist could be written in as Chief ages out or something.

#393337 Site Poll 95: The future of the Reclaimer Saga?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 11 October 2018 - 10:40 AM

When it comes to discussing how many games or episodes or how long we'll be in the Reclaimer Saga, Grim had this to say: "Probably the safest thing is to not really be thinking of it in any '__ Saga' terms anymore. Just more Halo :-)" on Twitter.


So it seems plans have changed and we aren't looking at different story arcs but rather one long story and universe that is Halo :D

#393324 Site Poll 95: The future of the Reclaimer Saga?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 08 October 2018 - 03:27 PM

So much to cover in this poll, it's almost daunting. 


Firstly, the Reclaimer Saga being changed is an indicator that we will be going beyond a 6th game. Will it always be Chief? It doesn't have to be but it would be hard to appeal to the masses with anyone else. Remember when everyone thought Locke was being brought in to take over as the main character and that 343 wanted to do away with Chief? It didn't go so well even with Locke being a pretty good character. 


I would love to explore more locations and I'm sure we're heading in that direction since it seems Halo Infinite is giving hints that it could be open to exploration of a certain part of Zeta Halo. We can't be choosing between a good multiplayer and a good campaign anymore. Video games are difficult to make and I get that, but it's time to deliver. People are saying what they want, it's just time to make it happen.

#393310 Site Poll 94: Which Spartan-IV do you like most?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 01 October 2018 - 10:35 AM

This is really tough because they've introduced some fantastic characters in the extended universe. It's hard not to go with one of the studs on Fireteam Osiris but my favorite Spartan IV is a clear fan favorite - Gabriel Thorne. We saw so much development of his character through Spartan Ops and Escalation it's hard to not feel stronger for him than the other Spartans. He's every characteristic of a good soldier which is a wonderful setup for him to possibly make some questionable decisions against ONI in the future (he's already questioning some of the things they've done). 


I'd love to see some more Fireteam Majestic in the future.



#393304 343 Trying To Pull Players Back in With New Magnum Skins in Halo 5

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 27 September 2018 - 09:01 AM

Ashamed to admit, but I actually haven't! I just ran the numbers myself from what you linked in the OP, lol.


343's attempts to get people back into the game have always struck me as a bit... odd. I remember a while back (might have been HCS?) there was something where they publicly gave out a code for some special goodies during the stream. But I tried to redeem it about a half hour after the stream was over, and it had already expired. Just, why would you even put a time limit on something like that, let alone one so short? They should be doing everything they can to get people back onto Halo 5 given its dwindling population, especially for things like skins that they're giving away for free anyway. And yet they insist on hiding their incentives away behind a grind wall or ridiculous time constraints. Makes me wonder what the overall strategy is, you know?




And yea they actually still give out Platinum REQ Packs and Gold REQ Packs during HCS streams that expire after 10 minutes. It's more of a way to get viewers than to actually allow players to get the REQs lol. Their timing... I mean they just got MLG back January this year. THIS year. When everyone is all but done with Halo 5.

#393296 Weapons in Halo Infinite

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 25 September 2018 - 08:08 AM

If 343 wanted to make a good move, they'd include every weapon from previous Halo titles in multiplayer and Forge at least. If they don't make sense in the Campaign then that's totally understandable but give me back the Sticky Detonator!

#393285 343 Trying To Pull Players Back in With New Magnum Skins in Halo 5

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 21 September 2018 - 09:40 AM

Just when you thought you were done with Halo 5: Guardians forever, 343 puts out some very nice Magnum skins to lure you right back in. While some players have lost the resolve to play the game, I personally will be trying to get these just because I'm a hardo. 



The Magnum Skins are obtainable by winning games in Halo 5:




As you can see, the skins have wins attached to them which is a good sign for the future of earning cosmetics and commendations. These M6H-2 Skins are part of the new Targetmaster Commendation in Halo 5. Everyone starts at 0/75 from the first tier so no one is grandfathered into these.



And as a bonus, 343 Industries has also given us something far more appealing in a game that is much more popular right now: the Master Chief Collection! These special nameplates are seen on the player's GamerTag in the lobby of MCC and the way to obtain each has been conveniently listed under each of them.










So what do you guys think, should we have had theses Magnum skins a year ago when Halo 5 was thriving competitively? How are you liking the looks of these skins and nameplates? Discuss below!
