The multiplayer just came out today in a surprise announcement and the campaign comes out on December 8. Been six years since 5 so we'll see how this plays.

Having it be an open world game is cool, like ODST's streets of New Mombasa in between missions, though this is much more ambitious and even larger but we'll see how they follow through.

Seriously, if you have the balls to call your open world game infinite you better fucking deliver.

I have to agree with the criticism about the battle pass. XP should be given for your game stats and completion like in MCC and 5 rather than only getting XP by completing challenges. Hopefully they'll change that by the 8th.

Yeah I think they'll deliver

The gameplay is growing on me, admittedly, even after my initial issues and criticisms. I do not like the microtransactions and battle pass garbage, especially since people keep fucking defending it as "the most ethical in the industry". No, fuck you. It's garbage.

The battle passes and microtransactions aren't different than other games and it's not like you have to buy them.

I will give them credit for making the battle passes permanent instead of timed and that their seasons aren't monthly unlike Call of Duty Mobile but what I don't like is the fact that your game statistics are not tied to gaining XP and leveling up like it is in MCC and 5. It's bullshit that it's completely tied to completing challenges instead of complementing your game stats like they do in MCC.

Pretty much just feels like Halo. Would've been cool if it had come out in 2001 which is where the gameplay seems to be stuck. All the weapons kinda feel like toys too. Doesn't feel like there's any weight or power behind them. Like it doesn't even feel like I'm shooting sometimes.

Game is alright. It's still just halo. Nothing really new here. At least it's free.

The gameplay is good but I just think some of the new weapons don’t hold up to the weapons from 4 and 5. I miss using weapons like the SAW, Sticky Detonator and Carbine.

Halo's always felt that way, sort of cheap and flimsy. Well-designed but lacking depth or porpoise, as though it's been designed by committee rather than given a deep overarching design.

We still have yet to progress beyond Doom/Doom ][ sound design for weapons. The shotgun from literally almost 30 years ago is still the greatest sounding weapon in gaming history as far as I know. It sounds fucking pitiful by comparison in the shitty modern remakes.

In part this is due to it punctuating driving music that is generally lacking in bass depending on your sound card choice. The best was the Gravis Ultrasound, and despite having a 386DX/40 when much more powerful 486s were out there, I spent the $100+ to get a GUS for music composition, etc.

Even if you ignore the music (and you can), check out all of the sound design of Doom 1. Guns, doors, monsters, ... It's unbeatable. How can we not do this again? What the fuck? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnEvhi6q5Mk

Well it looks like they’ve somewhat fixed the progression system so now you can at least level up once a day just by playing 6 games though they still haven’t tied your game stats to how much XP you earn like in MCC and 5, which they obviously should. The Fiesta playlist is cool and I hope they can keep it on permanent rotation.

man I sure would like to play some Halo Infinite multiplayer, I used to be a Halo 1 ace but skipped all the later titles when they became console-exclusive

idk WHAT is up with this game though, I've got 16GB RAM, installed on SSD, GTX3080 and an i7 and it takes legit 10 minutes to load on boot, then has to "load" again on every options / customization screen

fuck that shit

I can’t believe there’s people (mostly pros of course) that actually think the Mangler is overpowered. It’s an effective weapon especially with a close up shot and a melee but it’s not Halo 1 pistol overpowered or Halo 2 noob combo overpowered.

And Halo 3. All the Halo Xbox 360 online servers got taken offline. Truly an end of an era but at least I can still play those games in the MCC. I'm at least glad I got up to an officer level in Reach and level 20 in 3.

Is the campaign any good?

My impression so far is standard Far Cry open world design, go from point A to the other point A on the map and shoot things, then you get story snippets dripfed once you've done enough.

You sure? I'm super wary with games going open world because it usually means the lazy road where no point in the world is any interesting, just an endless parade of killing things in somewhat different areas where most places has no bearing at all on the story or progression. It's just there to pad out the game.

I miss when you had a linear tailored campaign experience, and Halo used to be one of the giants in that.

The gameplay is super fun and there's enough variation to keep you busy without feeling *too* repetitive. Also it does still have a linear campaign, just with open world breaks between missions. The main thing that's lacking is more environments, but every other Halo game before this besides CE had you travel to different parts of the galaxy and shit whereas in this game you don't really leave that one section of the ring.

It grew on me the more I played it. I thought bosses kinda sucked but then I realized they were making me better at the game as I was forced to learn how to use the abilities I stubbornly ignored and signed off as useless. I went into it with extremely low expectations, only bothering because it was available on Game Pass. It's not perfect, but it's a good game.

I do like the campaign and its open world setting though it's quite an adjustment from the different missions from the previous games.

As for multiplayer, I do like how it's gone back to being like Halo 3 multiplayer but I'll be honest and say that I don't like a lot of the new weapons aside from the Cindershot and Mauler. Also I don't like how they've made leveling up such a chore now with having to complete challenges and complete games instead of just having it be an optional thing in addition to getting XP based on your performance per game like in MCC and 5. But I get why they do it with a battle pass system being a free to play game and all. The other thing I miss from Halo 5 is the different variations of weapons.

Also the customization is a step down armor wise (weapon wise it's an improvement from 5) especially not being able to customize your own colors and instead it's tied to each armor set and you'd either have to unlock or buy the rest.

Campaign is a hard win. They have good loading screens and multiplayer is classic halo. Also free with game pass, you're a tool to think this is a rip off.

>good loading screens

There's literally only one loading screen. At least with MCC and 5, there's different loading screens and stuff that either provide you with info about the game and map or it's cool artwork.

>multiplayer is classic halo

I mean it's a throwback to Halo 3 multiplayer but it's not bad but there's things from 5 that I wish they had retained for Infinite like the different weapon variants and Smartlink.

New season is trash and the update made the game buggier to absolutely no one's surprise. Also they removed the tank gun from campaign. At least we have MCC and mods I guess.

Last Spartan Standing is alright, I do like that they incorporated aspects of Escalation Slayer into it but it should be 24 players instead of 12. Plus the whole "you can quit if you're eliminated and your challenge progress will update after the game ends" doesn't actually work so they need to fix that.
Also changing King of the Hill from the hill moving on a timer to having a team fill a meter before it moves to win a hill instead of it being based on cumulative time controlling the hill is a weird choice but now with that, Strongholds, Total Control and Land Grab, there's like 4 territory style game modes. Would like to see Assault, Regicide, Grifball and Headhunter come back.

I really don't like LSS. The map itself is whatever. The forerunner map, I like the aesthetic, but not the actual layout. But seriously the bugs have been even worse, the most annoying one is when all the sounds start repeating 3-4 times. Desync hasn't been fixed either despite it supposedly being a priority.

Land Grab is out now as part of the Fractures: Entrenched event. It's alright but it's basically Strongholds without having to hold onto the zone.
