  1. Lack of shoutbox without any sort of announcement of it being taken out has me a bit peeved and sad honestly.

      I decided to log back on today and WOW lemme tell ya this place got a major makeover. I'm not a fan of Discord but I guess thats the only good replacement

      Yeah the SB was actually taken down a good while back, and I wasn't happy to see that, but it was ultimately redundant with the use of Discord.

  2. I've been a part of this site since August 2011, as a measly 11 year old looking for an official 343 website and unfortunately stumbling upon this place. (Kidding. <3) What I love the most is how easy it was it is to make friends here. Some friendships here have come and gone along the users who had faded away but some still remain strong with many users still active here. Even if the site is borderline dead, I still love that the site introduced to many people here who I've had standing friendships with.
  3. Keeping it straight and simple. Commander Jerome 092. Sure, Locke could take over, but I find Jerome as the next fit "replacement" for the Master Chief. He's a physically-young Spartan II with a new AI Companion. If that doesn't yell >>New franchise lead<< for any future mainstream titles past John 117, I don't know what does.
  4. I'd rather use the Halo 3 Brute Spiker than touch you.
  5. You're not practical. Your body would be a fun weapon to use but you aren't practical.
  6. Honestly the simple answer to this is to include everything. The game is called Halo Infinite, so go big with it. Sure, weapon balancing in the sandbox will be a pain in the hide to do, but it would still beneifit the entire playerbase by giving them such a large and strong selection from every armory from every game. If anything, restrictions would and should be placed in competitive playlists (because they hate fun) in order to keep it fair and to keep Comp balancing small. Just put in everything. EVERYTHING.
  7. 343industries had their panel at Rooster Teeth's RTX 2017 event today, where they discussed future content and support for already released Halo titles from then to now. At E3 2017, the Xbox One X was officially revealed, along with some launch titles that run at 4k 60fps. Unfortunately, Halo did not have a spot at this years E3, and caused many to speculate whether any Halo title was in the works, or if Halo 5 was to get the 4k treatment. Today, 343 confirmed that Halo 5: Guardians will indeed get the 4k 60 fs treatment later this fall when the Xbox One X releases on NOVEMBER 7, 2017. Halo 5 in 4k wasn't the only announcement 343 had today, as they revealed that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 will be coming to backwards compatibility very soon, and all DLC including Halo: Reach's and Halo Wars' DLC will be free going forward. In fact, the DLC's are free now on the Xbox Marketplace website! Halo 3 and ODST on Xbox One are playable at RTX also. (Assuming you're at RTX in the first place.) Halo 3 Addons Halo Reach Addons Halo Wars Addons Halo 4 Addons Halo Wars 2 Season Pass holders are getting two more months worth of content before the launch of the Awakening the Nightmare expansion in the Fall. This month's content drop will feature a returning UNSC leader, Serina! This month will also drop the UNSC Campaign expansions based off of Operation SPEARBREAKER during the events of Halo Wars 2 against Banished forces. In August, we get a taste of Unggoy might as Yapyap the Destroyer comes into the fray. This may mean we'll get a Grunt Goblin mech as a unit! (pls) Halo 5 is getting another playlist update this fall in time for Halo 3's 10 year Anniversary. Though it's not an Anniversary title, Halo 5 will be getting a dedicated Halo 3 classic playlist in the future. It is being built from scratch with the maps being made in Forge and will use "classic" gameplay settings. More info to come soon! New season has started today as well! Jump into arena and get those ranks in! (If you want.) Snipers is back up for the season and fan-favorite modes such as Warzone Turbo, Mythic Shotty Snipers and Double XP Weekend will be returning soon! Source: Halo Summer Celebration
  8. Somewhat. Johnson uses an EMP Mac Blast and Ripa uses a stasis field but that's really it.
  9. If I had to make a guess about Serina, maybe they'll bring back Sparrowhawks and Gremlins? And Yapyap's markings seems to look like other Unggoy are worshipping him. Then again, he is wearing Truth's crown.

  11. Bonnie Ross stated at the D.I.C.E Summit earlier this year that Halo 6 will involve a more "simpler story" that focuses on the Master Chief and no new playable characters. She also stated that future titles will include the splitscreen option due to the backlash of Halo 5's lack of having splitscreen functionality. It was explained that taking it out in Halo 5 was a tough choice due to Halo 5's 'mass scale environments, improved AI behavior and increased visuals and gameplay fidelity.' Regarding the story, she said "while we love our transmedia, sometimes I do think we tell a little too much story in our games." This statement by itself stirred some confusion in the community. Some saw it as bad thing because they feel that the future entries could end up lacking the amount of lore and detail that Halo 4 and Halo 5 Guardians contained. Other saw it as a good thing becasue they feel it would be a lot easier and lighter on the casual players to understand the story. Bonnie Ross later cleared up the statement on Twitter that she also enjoyed the direction Halo 4 went storywise. _______________________________________________________________________________ Halo fans who are looking forward to the sequel to Halo 5 will have to sit back and get comfortable because 343industries stated that the next major title's announcement won't be anytime soon. That means out at Germany's Gamescom or the upcoming PAX 2017 conventions. Back in May, 343's community manager Brian Jarrard (aka Ske7ch) had warned fans that 343 will have no major announcements at E3 2017 for Halo. "I'll slip into my dreamcrusher persona for a minute in the name of realistic expectations. We've said this already but we'll have a little something at E3 but it's not related to the next major entry in the franchise." This 'little something' was revealed to be a paid expansion for Halo Wars 2 which brings the Flood back into the fray on the Ark post-HW2 titled "Awakening the Nightmare". In last week's Halo Community Update, Jeff Easterling (GrimBrotherOne) acknowledged the already predicted disappointment of the community from what E3 did and didn't show. "While there's little to nothing to be said on that front, it's been made clear that we won't be talking about Halo's next major title for quite sometime. And no, that doesn't mean Gamescom. Or PAX. Trust us, when we're ready to pull pack that proverbial curtain, you'll know. It won't be soon." Some members of the community took to the internet to voice their displeasure at this news, but also a good amount took to various forums such as Reddit's r/Halo and Waypoint to explain how this could mean 343 is willing to take their time to make the next entry better than the last, and fix their mistakes to ensure they deliver a game that the community wants. Many speculate that the next entry's reveal may take place at E3 2018 with a release later in 2019, but we won't know until 343 is satisfied and ready for an unveiling.

  12. I think that's the case now. 343i knows that people wanted Halo 3: Anniversary but with the failure of the Master Chief Collection (I'm still triggered) and the massive backlash from Halo 5, I don't think they can afford to pour their resources into something that isn't a major entry. They need to put as much time and work into the next game as they can to ensure it's THE game they want to give to the community.
  13. I've said this through multiple social media applications but congrats! (Even if I am 15 days late to the party forum-wise...) I guess this means I'll be able to see the power hungry side of you.

  15. Halo Combat Evolved: Covenant Dance Anniversary: Suite Fall Halo 2: Earth City Anniversary: GUNGNIR Mix Halo 3: Movement ODST: Skyline Reach: Uphill Both Ways Halo 4: 117 Halo 5: Light is Green
  16. Best Halo comic in my opinion would probably be Helljumper, just because it has Dutch and Romeo as the main characters. Worst comic would be the entire Escalation series. Literally threw away the Janus Key plot and the Didact. Plus the art was horrible. The only good things were the return of Brutes, Jun, Blue Team and the Arbiter.
  17. I've been playing lots of Battlefield 1 lately as well as Halo. Recently I've been doing another playthrough of the Mass Effect series in preparation for Andromeda with a perfect playthrough and so far, it doing well. I'd recommend the series to anyone who's thought about playing it! An idea for next poll? How about what scene in games hit you in the feels hardest? I mean, if we haven't done that yet.
  18. This where you guys would post link to your clips and such for me to use. Feel free to post as much as you want! Original thread: http://www.343industries.org/forum/topic/44701-ardent-presents-343icf-operation-back-smack-announcment/ Members who have submitted: (more will be added when necessary...) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
  19. Hey guys! Over the last couple of days, I thought of an idea that I thought would be really cool to do for the forum and for a lot of us to participate in. With the new assassinations added in with Halo 5's latest 'Monitor's Bounty', I had the idea to put together an Assassination compilation video for everyone who wants to participate in it. http://i.imgur.com/iulpuxb.gifv Here's how it would go: Members who would like to participate would send me clips of their assassinations (any of your choice!) and I'll keep a collection of them for good three weeks. Enough time for everyone to get their clips of epic assassinations or failed assassinations. (I'd like to get a little humor in there.) And considering the next few days with Halo Team Assemble's schedule for Halo 5, it could help! (Thank you Fishy.) You can send me clips from the past, clips you just took or you can openly send me clips you hope on making in the future. I will post a seperate submission thread for those who want to participate! But you don't have to submit there. You can PM or send the clips to my Gamertag on Xbox. If you want to send it to me through email, just ed. Your clips will be credited to you in the video, so don't worry. Hope to see your clips guys! PS: If anyone wants to help make the video, help is most appreciated.

  20. It was around 2003 or 2004? I was 6 or 7 around that time and I had just beat Halo CE on Normal and was screwing around in the 'Extras' tab since I hadn't noticed it before. It caught my eye and I went to it, and what did I see? The Halo 2 Announcement Trailer and Halo 2 E3 2003 Demo. It blew my tiny child brain and from then on, those two trailers/demos have been my favorite of those categories. They still are too. Didn't get to play Halo 2 until 2006 though.
