Halo Infinite has always been my favorite early access game

Given what was announced in the pre-show, that statement wound up being a bit amusing.When you think about it, Microsoft trying to get Halo to be more popular in Japan is just like how Square Enix is trying to get Dragon Quest more popular outside of Japan.
Like I said, Square wants the series to be more successful overseas. These ports of 11S will definitely helpIs it wrong for me to feel that I was more interested in Grounded, PSO2 and the latest Psychonauts 2 footage than anything else they had to show?
Also, it feels like some big presentations for this year's Summer Game Mess are like "stay tuned for part 2!". So, why not wait until Fall in that case?

Not sure how old you are, but I'm 26 and I felt pretty underwhelmed by both presentations too. I don't think I'm necessarily getting too old for games, I think I'm just growing somewhat disillusioned with the industry in general and how they develop products these days. Meh. It really didn't help that neither presentation showed very much gameplay. There were more games I'm excited about in Sony's presentation (I seriously need Spider-Man Miles Morales) but I will argue that Microsoft has a far stronger library ready for launch. God forbid Sony launch a console with a strong lineup, amirite? I'm still not really sold on either console, but I will probably pick one of them up early next year. Possibly at launch, if Nintendo's holiday catalogue is as disappointing as it's shaping up to be.The presentation was underwhelming tbh. But so was Sony’s for me. Maybe I’m just losing interest in gaming I guess.
Gaming presentation plans for this year were dropped on the floor like a precious vase, it'd be shocking if they weren't somewhat affected.The presentation was underwhelming tbh. But so was Sony’s for me. Maybe I’m just losing interest in gaming I guess.
Yeah, I think we can agree that if we didn't get hit with this quarantine stuff, then no doubt this would've been better than it was so far. Though, I can understand why it is the way it is.Gaming presentation plans for this year were dropped on the floor like a precious vase, it'd be shocking if they weren't somewhat affected.
I miss E3. As old hat it was getting, it just showed us that June was quite enough to have all presentations. Extended over four months, this Summer event is a bloated mess.
At this stage, it'd be more reasonable to ignore everything until Fall or the holiday season rolls over.
Gonna remain cautiously optimistic on Halo. I really don't think sprinting belongs in the game but who knows maybe it'll be balanced??? It just wasn't the slam dunk reveal I was hoping it would be. Could really go for a beta.— mike (@mike_madethis) July 23, 2020
There were a couple of games besides Halo that looked somewhat interesting but nothing that convinced me to buy them. Microsoft is fortunate to have a system seller like Halo but I can see how people criticize them when companies like Sony and Nintendo have multiple games to that claim. Though, personally none of Sony's games looked like absolute must-haves to the point where I've ever gotten a Playstation..This was a really weak showing from Microsoft when they really needed to Wow people. The games I mentioned above were cool but then there was so much AA filler inbetween. Does anyone actually care about State of Decay or those lame third party games they showed before Fable? Sony brought out Resident Evil 8 & that’s the best third party stuff they could show!?
This sums up how I feel as well. Grappling hook looks like it's a more dynamic tool than just movement, which I think is exciting. Making the fusion coils a more interactive part of the sandbox is a great call; throwable gas canisters was my favourite mechanic in Uncharted. There's definitely forge minigame potential.Eh, I was hyped for it. Definitely hit the "first stepping onto a Halo Ring" feel to me. Went with some story elements. Showed off some new/old/different guns. Confirmed sprint and grapple. Idk, guys. I loved it. But I was also wanting to see some multiplayer gameplay.
Yeah, let's just hope that Zell hasn't been bamboozled by his source...Even if Halo Infinite isn't the best game in the series, the Master Chief Collection still exists and the strong rumors of it coming to the Switch hold promise

Oof if true.

Nothing to see here folks, this is not true.— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) July 24, 2020
Basically, the single player campaign, Halo's lifeblood, not being available until later, which is more damning as opposed to not having a story mode in a game that's meant to be multiplayer-centered to begin with.I missed the tweet - what would have been a disaster if it was true?
I played Halo 1 for the first time today. (my experience with the Halo series mainly consists of Halo 3, 4, and Reach) I enjoyed it (though since I'm used to Doom Eternal, I kept trying to punch enemies at the start when I didn't have a weapon, to no avail), though I definitely preferred the first person sections over the vehicle sections. I don't know if it's just me, but the Warthog feels like all of its wheels were replaced with bars of soap.
As a result, I liked the first mission more than the second, since I found it easier to figure out where to go. (once I got out of the cave, I was fine, but the inside of the cave blended together, and it was hard to tell where I had already been since (as far as I'm aware) the game doesn't have a map, just a radar) I'm enjoying the game so far, though, and it's shorter than I expected (ten missions), which will be nice.
I'd be up for seeing Master Chief in Smash. While I'm not sure what all he can do (it's been a while since I played any Halo games), he'd make a ton of sense, especially now that Microsoft content is in Smash thanks to Banjo-Kazooie.
