Thread: Halo Infinite

  1. My gaming plate is so damned full now, that I had to skip on this. I'm currently running through FH5 and Far Cry 6, along with trying to finish up Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PC. I haven't even began to widdle away on the PS+ games I have on the PS4.

  2. Oh boy do I have more thoughts than people want to read, but I wanna say it all so here we go:

    Single Player:

    I enjoyed it, a lot. Played through the first time getting all FOBs, Targets, Banished Bases and rescued all squads. Did that run on Heroic because the first boss on Legendary was bullshit and I didn't want that headache on a first play through. Then blasted through an easy run in three and a half hours to collect all story skulls I missed on my first play through. Then yesterday I did a full Legendary run with Bandana on and used the tank gun, pretty fun and took just shy of 5 hours. Won't ever do a LASO run because fuck that.

    You can tell there's TONS of a cut content and based on the stories that have come out about internal issues, that a focus campaign materialized at all, and is as good as it is, is nothing short of a miracle. Now that they have a base game in their new engine done, my expectation for expansion of DLC is that it'll be awesome. Infinite 2 isn't an option for decade, but massive add ons are, and they could be amazing. I'm excited to see the entire Zeta Halo saga unfold.

    Multiplayer:

    What a cluster fuck. Because I wanted to get the whole battle pass, and because bot battles are FUN, and because the mechanics are so solid, I've played like 600 matches and maxed out the battle pass.

    But holy shit did they fuck so many things up. Marketing department put items on materials for free events that are cash only from the shop. Launched with no slayer, no fiesta, no SWAT, no FFA. 10 maps only, no legacy maps. Battle pass was dropped from 120 levels with more tangible items to 100 levels with more swaps/boosts but the fucking achievement card still shows 120 levels on it (can't even make this shit up), BTB broke at full launch and has not been fixed weeks later, and the desync in everything but bot matches is bananas.

    For that last note, I feel some justification that the "why isn't that hitting him it doesn't make sense" I talked about earlier in the thread wasn't just me, it's a very real issue related to terrible client-server communication. It makes me want to not mess with anything ranked or full PVP because the experience can be so frustrating.



    Good game with great gameplay. Overall package has the potential to be the best Halo ever if they keep fixing/expanding like they claim they will.

  3. I can see why the 1st boss would kick your ass, but it's not as hard as you think. I'm playing on Heroic though, so I don't know if he acts different at that setting. There's a scoped rifle that you can use to shoot him in the head, while he's at the command desk.

    I finally got to play this on my PC this morning. The game is beautiful, with tons of lighting and particle effects all around you during battle and the escape in the opening story. I couldn't believe that it almost took me an hour to complete that opening level, though I did die about a half dozen times. There was one moment though, where the game froze up for about 3 seconds. I'd thought that maybe the game had crashed, but I guess it was just loading in 4 grunts and had a hiccup. Other than that, the game has run as smooth as melted butter.

    Top is what the server saw, bottom is the players screen in real time. The desync is BANANAS right now.

  6. Oh man though, the times when there isnt desync and you can also get into a real BTB are just fantastic.
