If you haven’t yet, I’d love a deep dive into what you want Halo Infinite to be and what you think Infinite will be
You know, since we haven't got many requests for the show we will make sure to work that in. I'll jot it down. Tonight a new 2 hour plus episode on a retrospective of the Master Chief Collection will go up. Have you gotten a chance to listen to any of the podcast yet?

Thanks for your support! You know what's crazy? I read this right before we went on air and the podcast we had planned didn't work out so we did your idea instead and talked about Halo Infinite!

It's our most recent episode and it's live now! Episode 04: No, We Need To Fight.

343i: It'll be out when it's ready
Numerous problems including general delay and hit registration on PC
343: ....LEROOOOOOY JENNNNNNKINS.

The controller advantage is huge in this game and quite the problem, hopefully the changes to M&KB will help but if it doesn't add KB&M to Xbox and do input based crossplay.

I just bought MCC for PC on the microsft store because it was £8 cheaper, im guessing all servers between steam and the microsft store will be shared?

Remember cod had this dumb proble, just want to avoid future issues.

I played some Halo last night for the first time in at least a year. Jumped into MCC, played Halo 3 Team Slayer and absolutely went off. Felt really good.

I seriously need some Halo Infinite goodness.

Seeing that new Half-Life game is just reaffirming my thoughts that Halo may have a pretty good future in VR. I feel like a good Halo game on consoles is still possible, but I think Valve would be a better competitor for 343 than the overcrowded FPS market that has kind of moved on beyond the simple combat loop of Halo.

Don't think so at launch, probably an option down the road like the H2 skulls

Also speaking of H2, been doing this all week thanks to the Quest Link beta, I now NEED a Halo VR game

I can tell you from first hand experience that it works great in VR. Pavlov has pretty much all of the Halo maps and even using modern non-Halo weapons it is really awesome.

I''m currently sitting at 9.8 million XP until SR 151 in H5.

I'm going to try playing every night to acquire 100K XP. If I do this every night that means I'll get SR 152 on July 21, 2020.

100K is the minimum. If I'm up to it maybe more on given nights but 100K is the minimum goal.

It's been quite a while since I played Halo 5, what kind of XP do you get per game? (how much for arena, warzone, etc?)

It depends if you're playing a featured playlist (star next to it, basically double XP) and what XP boost you have running.

With a Legendary XP boost and a featured Arena playlist you can usually get somewhere from like 12K-15K per game. Warzone about 20K-25K but the games last twice as long.

Unfortunately I just ran out of Legendary Arena boosts so I might have to stick with Warzone for now because Arena XP without a good boost gives pretty crap XP at around 3K-5K per game.

Halo: Reach achievements are in for MCC and they look okay:

Campaign
Multiplayer

It has the LASO and the speedrun achievements. Some fun looking easter egg achievements, as well. As far as multiplayer goes. It looks like everything can be done in Custom Games, aside from the Invasion 1st round win and Skullamanjaro.

I'm going to enjoy this! :D
