Hopefully it wont have as many problems as MCC.. 343 always seems to fuck something up.
Online issues are common with many games, though yes... the MCC was particularly bad, not nearly as bad as Sim City though

Just checked out the new animated cover and I love it! I hope that's Blue Team with John! If so I'm curious as to how they're going to bring them into the story since the only way you'd know about them is through the extended universe.

Finale to Hunt The Truth was haunting, terrifying, saddening and thought provoking. The idea that ONI hid in plain sight with the facts actually there but easily tricking Ben into being outcasted and then executed along with Ray, sends chills down my spine.

I do believe ONI have cut too many nerves now. They've cut off the outer colonies which i think has lead to a major incident gone unnoticed in trying to cover their actions. I do believe petra will bring down ONI using ONI's dirty tactics against them. Probably get them to confess on broadcast without them realising with their own records, like the ones on infinity.

Also e3 has revealed that Lockes team includes ODST's Buck as a spartan 4, with voice actress laura bailey as Olympia Vale, another locke team member.

The gameplay not only has both factions of elites aka arbiter and the storm, but the return of prometheons & confirming more forerunners. Not to mention that the domain will play a crucial role to the story. Also chief will have his old team from the novels, blue team, finally on the game screen after all these years.

That last episode of Hunt the Truth was insane! Apparently they're continuing the hunt after E3 with Petra taking over (played by the talented Cobie Smulders) Overall, the first arc of Hunt the Truth was great. I thought that Keegan Michael Key did a fantastic job with his performance as Ben. (which totally came as a shocker to me when I found out that he was the man behind the voice since I'm so used to him playing comedic roles)

The first onscreen appearance of John's Blue Team has got me very excited too! Can't wait to find out who they'll have as the VAs for Kelly, Linda and Fred. I mean Bungie/343 tends to go all when it comes to bringing in the talent.

Couldn't agree more. Considering who they had for the Arbiter, Alpha-nine and the various actors & actresses for Hunt The Truth.

My main question now is what did Chief and possibly Blue Team do to have them being hunted? Especially after the pardon from the incident at the peace conference?

I also looked into the fates of Alpha-nine from ODST which is saddening since i loved the characters but does make an awesome change to the Buck we've come to love from Reach & ODST. 343i are cleverly using characters from various aspects from different parts of the halo media to bring them into the current part of the story. Helps establish the universe is more than just the chief while proving once & for all the other media is canon to the games too.

Apparently there's been a major hint/leak indicating that Hunt The Truth will actually continue as a season 2. Possibly leading up to the actual start of the campaign or even possibly take place during the events of the game. An appearance possibly in the game would be fantastic to see, as events unfold & paths collide.


The trailers and clips so far hint that we'll finally see a glassed world after the attack, possibly a level for blue team. We finally see in game hunters as the worms without armour, the elites homeworld, the arbiter return to the halo games and so many of our favourite weapons. This tells me these are only pieces of what 343i has instore for Halo 5 and that we'll get so much more for the full game.

I will not hold too much judgement until I actually play the game. While I will admit the campaigns have always gotten better, I feel like multiplayer suffers from it. I play campaigns first but I continue to play a game because of the multiplayer. So I will focus more on that.

I won't pre-order or anything but I will pick it up if it functions fine after release. There are a lot of things I liked about the BETA (mainly just game modes) but there is a lot more that I didn't like. I was big on H3 and H5 multiplayer feels like another H4 which pretty much ruined the game for most.

Like some people said above, the abilities kind of kill that Halo feel for me. The floating and ground pound are just plain stupid. Same with the shoulder dash when you melee after sprinting. If they are going to have the sprint feature I do agree to your shields not recharging though. Encourages people to not use it as much (hopefully). Getting special abilities from weapons is also pretty dumb. The sword is easy enough to use as is, I don't need extra speed. The clamber add on could be nice but I know they are going to make maps around that which will kill maps for me. They should make maps with no abilities in mind and let the abilities find there own natural use in the map. It will kill a huge mobility factor in the game because I will be forced to look at the ledges I want to climb instead of jumping backwards and hold crouch. Now I have to turn my back to the enemy in a BR battle just to get somewhere else? No thanks. Breakout gametype looks very promising but I have always favored one life, best takes all kind of gametypes. I won't even get into the weapons right now.... ^_^

Again, who knows. I will still buy and play this game but I will just have to call it Future Warriors with Suits: The Shooter, when I play online.

I watched some stuff from E3, while the campaign is looking good, going for something like Halo 2's split campaign I guess, the multiplayer still doesn't speak to me. For starters, it looks exactly the same as Halo 4. It's like they didn't even bother improving the graphics, it looks like plastic, literally. The multiplayer is still a bit too fast. The movement speed could be slowed. The BR looked like it knocked a player out in 3 bursts instead of 4 or 5, of which looked like single shots from how fast they were. It might as well have been a DMR. The grenades are good, but the spartan abilities are overkill. You don't need a spartan slam or charge. Hovering while ADS is terrible in the fact that you can't jump and shoot, which has always been a crucial tactic in gun fights. the "clamber" (climbing) is cool though.

remove the abilities, or at least make it just a thruster pack, and increase TTK a bit and I'll consider getting an x1. I can at least deal with it looking like halo 4 and tolerate the horrid weapon designs, but TTK is the main deal breaker right now.
