They sold me an Xbox using a Halo game before. It was MCC.


Never again.

#394042 Site Poll 105: Will Halo: Infinite reignite the 343ICF?

Posted by I_Make_Big_Boom on 17 October 2019 - 02:35 PM

I think it would depend more on MCC on Steam if it releases before Halo: Infinite. We already know what the MCC games are all about, but they're gonna have to sell us hard with Halo: Infinite because it's an unknown quantity. I don't think anyone here is ready to fork over the cash for yet another false promise, or at least not in the beginning.


Anyway, regarding PC. I think the problem with ElDewrito was because of its hard to obtain status, despite being the best Halo game to have ever been on PC. Though if you give people an actual, legit Halo game on PC, then they will come in droves. I mean, they literally spammed the 343i office with pizza because of the Reach on PC announcement. People really care about this.


Will that affect 343iCF? Obviously yes, because we're in the top of the searches. If Halo gets another boom then there will be a load of people looking up 343i. People will come here thinking we're someone we're not, which I've always thought was wrong. If we were called anything else nobody would care as much.


Though regardless of a name change, I think the community would grow enough to actually be bolstered again. However, it'd have to depend on the series being strong on its own without this community. If it's not then I guess we're just gonna be like this for good.


#393739 Site Poll 104: Obligatory E3 Poll

Posted by I_Make_Big_Boom on 10 June 2019 - 12:44 AM

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.

When's the last time you used actual Forge instead of that Halo 2 editor you've always used? Just curious.

#393617 Site Poll 102: What Devices Will Halo Infinite Be On?

Posted by I_Make_Big_Boom on 24 January 2019 - 12:55 PM

I have a feeling even after all this time Msoft will still be wishy-washy about having Halo on PC, and they'll probably delay the Windows 10 release or something.

I want all my guns to have PIZZA DECALS our I'm out. Your move Micro****.


In all seriousness, big Halo theme is the guns. You ain't got the guns, you ain't got me OR the fans. Nobody gonna sit here and say to themselves "Wow, the Sniper Rifle is pretty cool!", no THEY SAY "THE SNIPER RIFLE FIRE DEATH, AND PUNCH HOLE THROUGH TANK."

#393538 Site Poll 101: Which Armor Variant Do You Want Chief To Wear in Infinite?

Posted by I_Make_Big_Boom on 19 December 2018 - 07:10 AM

I really like the new design. They managed to strike a perfect balance between old and new, but it's still a departure: especially when you contrast it with both the original Halo 3 and Halo 5 versions. The Infinite version is what the Halo 3 version looked like in my head whenever I remember it, but looking at the both of them separately is really weird... The Halo 3 version looks bug-eyed in comparison.


Anyway, I'm not holding out hope that the game's gonna be good simply because the helmet looks good. It's a step in the right direction, but we're still gonna need a major leap here people.
