Sounds awesome... except for the lack of firefight. Oh well, I'll have ODST and Reach for that still. Maybe Spartan Ops will be a suitable replacement.

I dont know if you caught this, but it seems like they also have moddable weapons in the mix. On the second to last page, the guy is using a rifle that looks like the BR, but has a completely different styled scope


Also, Perks sound EXACTLY like CoD. So im worried.

I like the Spec Ops mission thing too.... Cause like, Ive always felt jipped that Halo never has story based DLC... Which is the impression im getting from these spec ops buisness

There are no weapons mods. That's the new look DMR or Assault Carbine.

  • There has been much talk. And i have listened...
Ok, i got yah. Also, jackals are in one of the pictures, so they are there too.

Also, what the heck? Assault combine? Why? We have tooooooo  maaaaannnny rifles in this game already

Also, there is more than just one new weapon. The new race has an entire sandbox apparently

Damn it Dani... now I'm even getting spoilers for my magazines. :P I'm avoiding this just because I want there to still be a point in reading it.

I'm going downstairs to check if it's arrived right now.

Eh, magazine's not here. Now it's the fault of delivery. I'm reading your post.

Spartan Ops gets me very excited. Usually I don't like games forcing me to come back to play them on their time or I miss story. But for Halo, an exception can be made. This time around, it'll be nice to have a better reason to play Halo consistently. And that's that if I don't, I'll miss cool story stuff.

I know it's a cheap marketing ploy and all... but... well yeah, it works.

Bummed they've been dodging around 'shield world' this whole time just to finally come out and say 'shield world'. But eh, that's more marketing for you.

Not sure how I feel about new players being able to jump into the middle of a game. Halo is so much about teamwork and relying on your team, and if your team is constantly dropping in and out, there will be no way to do that without getting a party together. :( And then there's the whole fairness thing. No real way to compare yourself to everyone else who you're playing with and against, because you have no way of knowing at what point they entered the match.

^ Biggest complaint right there. Was kinda iffy about no Firefight, but I think Spartan Ops is going to more than make up for it if it actually has story stuff as well.

Right now, players are constantly dropping. All the time. In every playlist. You know, it might be nice to have the teams fill up again instead of BTB games emptying but for three or four players.

Quitting has been a plaque in Halo, especially over the past few years. I fully support any effort to mitigate it.

I always kinda liked that. Probably just me. It sometimes makes you form more of an alliance with your own teammates, either because you have to to survive or because you know the other team is weaker and you want to take advantage of that. I dunno. Even that was always a part of Halo for me. I genuinely think the game got more fun when players dropped, because you'd have to change up your game. Nothing was every the same. Monotony is bad. Blah blah.

Anyways, another thing I'm wondering... it's sounding like the Infinity is using virtual reality? If so... are they technically kinda shoehorning all of Halo's multiplayer into this explanation? Like all of it is throughout every Halo game has been simulated on the Infinity, with different armor setups and whatnot? I think no, but it's an interesting thought nonetheless.

I doubt they will retroactively add in fiction like that.

I have to say that I am very impressed with the fictional ties of the entire Infinity platform. That alone is jaw-dropping.

Calling it now. McFarlane launching scale models of Halo spaceships, using Infinity as the launching point for the series. Do want.

Seriously, the Infinity is already one of the coolest ships ever.

I might actually purchase one of those dreadful toys if that happens.  :D

Also, because everyone is talking about the new Elite, I had to look that image up.

I do think that it looks 100% BA.

I'm real tempted to post something about this up on the site. I can't decide which area to talk about though.
