@  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
@  Azaxx : (17 June 2019 - 09:20 AM) That's where I hoped 343i were taking H5 Twin, especially after how they portayed the game in those 'Hunt the Truth' lead up series
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 09:02 AM) More Halo is always good but if we're not doing quality control then what are we doing
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 09:00 AM) @RedStarRocket91 Agreement on 100%
@  Zoob : (16 June 2019 - 09:05 PM) I have faith in where the story could be going now. Either way, im happy with MORE Halo.

I really like the scaled back and down to earth approach (relatively speaking).

 

I didn't expect at all for them to focus so much on some regular ass dude, that was out of left field. I've seen other people say the whole family aspect of his didn't hit for them, and honestly it fell flat for me too... at first. 

 

When the timeskip happened I was actually surprised, him being out in space seemingly for a while. That made the family aspect click for me despite still not caring about his family. Simply because of his apparently simple role in relation to the Chief. Whether or not he's actually a real character, and not a nameless NPC remains to be seen, but the narrative potential for Chief to this random guy is pretty immense.

 

The Chief on the other hand is more of the same, sans armor. I like this more broad version of the skinnier "classic" suit he had in the OG trilogy. Gives me Gears vibes which I like a lot, but there's not much else to say about it. Also, on Waypoint they describe the story as "Chief's story" and that it's supposed to be a good starting point for new players. I really hope his character development is similar to the Halo 4 Chief way rather than the "traditional" and EASY way, please and thank you.

 

Anyway, with that out of the way we now head onto corporate bull**** prominent in 343's Halo thus far. I walked in with extremely low expectations, and came out generally approving of Halo: Infinite. But not much else. Actually, I'm only left with telltale signs already.

 

First being the title. Halo: Infinite. It's dumb. Not sorry, because you can't one-up that to me. That's the kind of title you have for a freaking MMO or game with no forseeable sequel, at least within the majority of a decade. If this is a scaled-back Halo yet still called Halo: Infinite, then that's poor decision making. It's just bad vibes to me, here's to hoping the story really calls for it.

 

Second, the nostalgia bait for a game releasing simultaneous with a new console. Halo CE can be forgiven because Xbox was new, and CE is one of the greats. But if Infinite is bad or mediocre, then they knew full well. Kinda like how they knew when they sent the severely nostalgic MCC out to die to sell Xboxes in 2014 after having sold everyone their broken promises at E3. You can call it "traditional" or "classic" art style all you want, but that's only a crutch for a supposed inability to make something new that's iconic and worth caring about, which I refuse to believe is impossible with all their millions. Thankfully, the rhinos, scenery, and focus on some Hispanic guy are good signs to me.

 

Which leads me to my final point. The benefit of the doubt. I gave it for Halo 4. And MCC. Then Halo 5 happened. It might seem like the end of the world happened for a stupid game, but imagine what happened to Star Wars fans when The Phantom Menace happened.

 

I'm honestly though at a point where I just don't care as much as I used to. I know better. Call me when it's good, otherwise I'm just waiting still saying "Told you so" while enjoying better content somewhere else. Not like they need me since I'm clearly not the target audience, and I only seem to be critical of everything they do. But it's because I care.

 

And I certainly care that they finally decided to bring Halo to PC in a big way, MCC for PC. If only we knew when it's freaking releasing...? Why didn't they do it at E3...? Another stupid 343 or Microsoft decision...?

 

Still hyped for it though, the pizza does NOT lie.
