Halo |OT| She's Gone, Sir

They really should have waited longer to announce MCC PC.
LOL, I was thinking this just now watching Snipedown play H3 and was about to say the exact same thing.

All the hype feels gone. So fucking dumb to announce it as early as they did.

And to think I thought it was a possibility they were gonna drop a "OUT NOW!" bombshell on us. I just continue to be disappointed by them.

As someone who praised Halo 5 for the first two years I gotta say I hope Infinite just throws everything it introduced in the trash. Done with all this “advanced mobility”

Game is impossible to return to. Can’t believe they made the br unusable with that unnecessary patch.

Y'all, it's been 8 years and 7 months between the release of Reach on 360 and this announcement. Having to wait 2 months for them to get it right is nothing compared to that previous gap.
They shouldn’t have even mentioned that it would possibly be ready end of April. It gets expectations up and every day it isn’t out fans get upset. They need to stop overselling and just say it will be ready when it’s ready.

Just to be clear, are they going to only be flighting the MP portion of Reach? Or will they flight the campaign as well? Because I feel they should do the campaign, since htey'll want to test the netcode for co-op, right?

I believe they've said there will be flighting for all aspects. Though what the first flight will test is unknown.

If they didn't say anything or were super cagey, people would complain about how opaque they are being.

There is no winning with this sort of thing. However, I much prefer disappointing but truthful updates over a brick wall of marketing garbage.

Hey guys, I had someone from a shop tell me that a serial number for one of my products was relevant to Halo. The serial number is BCMS343. I think he said not just BCMS was Halo but 343 was as well. Can someone explain the significance? I don't play Halo but I'm just curious.

Or maybe it was a completely different game he was talking about. I'm pretty sure it was Halo though.

I don't think I'd mind crouch sliding staying in and evolving

otherwise, I still think they should add power weapons that have mobility features, like a grapple hook or something

Hopped on MCC with a friend and started searching btb. It took so long to find a game that it kicked us out due to “idling” and he got temp banned for 5 minutes.


The idling system is awful.

343 Guilty Spark is a character in the Halo universe (an ancient alien AI thing... sort of), and the division of Microsoft in charge of the franchise is named after him/it, 343 Industries.

I don't know about "BCMS," MS could be Microsoft but BC I have no idea. Maybe some lore nerd knows (fuchsdh )

They’re probably just talking about the 343. Unless it’s some super obscure weapon stuff the BCMS stuff isn’t any specific Halo fallout.

Apparently they want us to keep wiggling our thumbsticks while waiting 5+ minutes for a match.
Simulating an intense 1vs1 battle, in order to not get banned. That's definitely a new (and kinda funny) one. lol :D

In all seriousness, though... You should probably send this to someone at 343i. Postums might be your best bet.
