      congratulations

  2. Took a while, but we've got some more news on the TV series. Announced in 2013, it got everyone hyped, however 2018 is the year all the dead hype resurrects. Here's what we have: 2020 premiere, early 2019 production: 2018's coming to an end, believe it or not, and as each day passes we're getting closer to the next year. Spielberg's series will begin production soon, and we'll see the first episode sometime in 2020, if all goes to plan. 10 Episodes for the first Season: I think this is a fair choice, 10 good-length episodes. A lot can be packed in, whilst keeping it all relevant. If the show isn't going so well (which I doubt), they'll be able to end it soon as well. Master Chief will be "a lead character": "a", so he may not be the only primary focus, but it's likely he will be. There were many theories before about what this could be about. Harvest, Reach, post-Human-Covenant War. Now we have a better idea of who will be involved, with John-117 taking centre stage. We'll have a few other big names working on the series, such as writers Rupert Wyatt and Kyle Killen. One of the best parts is that Showtime's CEO David Nevins has said the series is "futuristic, space-based science-fiction, it's not fantasy". I feel that they're working hard to make sure this series sticks to Halo's roots. Are you all looking forward to the Halo TV Series? Share your thoughts down below.

  3. Whilst it's true this community may not return to it's previous activity, or even near, the Halo community in general hasn't been this active for a long time. I wouldn't say many drifted away into other games for good, possibly just temporarily. Many are returning with the good news of Infinite, and especially with MCC + Reach coming to Steam (and simply Reach being added to Xbox One). I know many who are looking forward to that, some still playing Halo regularly and others not. Halo's saved, and more, the fate of this site remains undetermined though.
  4. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 105...yes, I'm really back for it. Please, contain your excitement. Hold your applause. Keep your underwear on. Unfortunately both Yoshi and Maestro failed to uphold my legacy with the Site Polls that I greatly invested in, thanks guys (love ya really ). Honestly wanna thank them both for producing five more polls after I stepped down, it was much appreciated. I can't say for sure whether I'll be doing these weekly like I used to, but you can expect one every now and then. This community had and will always have a special place in my heart, and it's all of you, the people, that make it. Speaking of this awesome community, let's dive into Poll 105. Will Halo: Infinite reignite the 343ICF? I joined in 2013, just over over 6 years ago now. When I joined, the place was starting to buzz with life. It was warming up again after a previous period of inactivity. I can't speak too much for the 2011 to early-2013 state of the site, but from what I made out, 2013/2014 was the peak of this community's activity. Members were like family with each other, I'd come back home everyday to join my new-found friends here. We all had something in common, various things in common in many cases. Remember the days of forum games? Now we can't even get a flowing convo in the shoutbox. I'm guilty of inactivity as well, the already-present growing lack of activity here didn't give me anymore reason to return and stay for long. I always end up coming back though, because there's truly no place like home. Now Infinite is shaping up to be impressive, and we're getting a sick port of Reach to Xbox One and PC soon (hopefully). The Halo community is still very active, and will only get more hyped as time progresses. But what about our community? Waypoint's a nice house, but it's not home. Do any of you think the upcoming Halo content, namely Infinite, will bring the community back to life? Will it potentially bring new members that'll be here to stay, or have older members return for good? A familiar face is always nice, and a fresh one with passion is just as good. Or do you think the community has had it's time, and will begin fossilising soon enough? There's always potential for life to be breathed into this old dog. If Infinite won't do it, Reach and the MCC port to PC may. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. As always, Spartan out.
  5. Nothing amazed me about it, but I liked it. It's good. What I like most, is that we start in the point of view a Pelican pilot, Echo 216's pilot. We get a representation of the average serviceman's struggle in this war. It helps grounds us. Instills the fact that these are just regular people in a war. People who suffer loss. Halo is what it is because of how grounded it's been in the past. The books do some things the games have never (yet) done, and that is put you in the shoes of others. Know what they're thinking, how they're feeling. Spartans. Navy officers. Marines. Civilians. Aliens. Halo Infinite has already had a pretty decent attempt, with just a few minutes of E3 footage. I see a bright future for Infinite. I don't expect, or want the same things we had in the first three games. We need change, it's necessary. But it has to be done right, and I'm confident 343 Industries will be doing it right when Infinite drops next year.
  6. It's been 6 years since I joined here, 2nd October 2013 was a date engraved in my mind, used to love spending my days and nights here with the community. Here's to another 6.

  7. I don't mind if we have to unlock emblems, I kinda like the idea of earning them as Drizzy said. What I don't like is the randomness of REQs, they need to go. Earn them by achievements? Cool. Earn them in random packs? No.
  8. Good news is that Halo Infinite will be available on Windows 10 for those of you on PC. Welcome back!
  9. Most likely just Xbox One and PC. It's been confirmed for Windows 10.
  10. Welcome to the community.
