Phil Spencer also confirmed Craig will remain a part of Halo lore
anyone remember n64?? the graphics look just like turok or some n64 game from the 90's.. enjoy your 12tf people.
Im sure they will. And like sonic in the movie... craig wont look the same when its released.
Glad they got a sense of humor, I just hope 343's talent shines brighter than their sense of humor when the game launches.
Haha! Enjoy playing $70 per game. I'll enjoy my 4.99 Gamepass!! N64 was the best!
Lol that's like mocking someone with "enjoy your rib-eye steak for 30 $, i'll enjoy my rat burger for 3 bucks" lol.
@PS-Gamer-1986, Dude that is just savage & hilarious. Have an upvote on me friend 👍 Lol
Things broke people say. (aka pocket watchers) Own > Rent
A game that costs 70 has to prove its quality to sell. For a 4.99 game pass, average is enough. Proving competition's ability and assertion is the main engine for improvement and the need to give your best. That's why Sony has, and will have, better rated games.
Three blind mice. PS,Willy and 501. You play the same game plus hundreds more for $15 as opposed to paying $70 each. That's intelligent. One day you'll wake up and realize you've been in a short skirt and heels in the middle of winter on a corner for marketing all your life.
Dreamcast was the best. N64 was aiiite
Ok we'll enjoy paying one time to own instead of forever to rent. N64 had some greats, still remember those Golden Eye sessions.
@echone1 except you forget that the games are also up for regular sale.... so there goes your essay about competition and bla bla bla Im not sure why people are shitting on gamepass so much, its just an alternative way of paying, its basically just a rental service, just like ps+ does it. Once you stop paying you cant play them anymore. I guess its just hard to accept for some people that MS is having a good service for a change.
I know a good eye doctor, maybe he can fix your eyes
Xbox series X has 12TF of gameplay. Its another generation they have thrown away why can't they just learn..
No matter how much you try to embrace the meme... we're all still laughing at you, not with you on this one. The gameplay demo you approved and showed was an epic embarrassment and it will be remembered for a long time. Sorry, but it's true
If you are still laughing, there might be deeper issues at play. How was the gameplay epic embarrassment?
Well you can figure that out yourself.
Oh geez get a life
Yeah, in order to embrace a meme like this, it has to be something that doesn't remind everyone of your failure.
"Will be remembered a long time" - Dude, you should get out more.
He is here every day posting the same shit.
Well, they embraced the refrigerator meme to the point they made real refrigerators so who knows with this one. Don't take things so seriously about them owning it. It shows they arent just ignoring things like they used to in the past. Owning it and being able to poke fun at themselves is something they needed to do for a really long time. Just go with it brotato
Yeah we are lowkey laughing at ya but good job on you for being mature about it.
i will hold my laughter until release day
No picture of the T-shirt? :-( My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.
T-shirt got delayed .. due to production problems. But don't worry.. "Wait till e3", It will be revealed.
Ok, I lol'd. Well played purple.
I feel sorry for whoever created craig in their art department or dev model person. Probably rough finding more work after that if they were contracted out.
Lol imagine that on your CV! Tbf MS employee's wearing these t-shirts will hopefully act as a constant reminder that this kind of mediocrity is no longer accepted by gamers. Maybe they should also consider Kratos t-shirts that say "Be better!"
Kratos gave sage advice. Also a t-shirt like that would be cool
There's owning, making a joke of, what should obvious mistakes, then there's accepting or realizing that often make obvious mistakes - and trying to stop making obvious mistakes!
I’d say delaying the game a year was their attempt to fix their mistake.
The system needed to be delayed so that there would be games for it.
Put" half a billion spent "underneath then would Ms staff still be giggling?
Good sense of humour. I can't play sense of humour.
Considering this is your flagship game that was supposed to release with your new console and still has no release date, I am not sure it makes much sense to embrace this. Not sure this approach helps with accountability, but 343 and Microsoft are free to create whatever culture within their company that they like.
The beauty of Game Pass is that it makes no difference to them either way unfortunately.
Genuinely intrigued to see the next version of Halo Infinite now. It does seem that MS has for once taken on board criticism. Hopefully 343i work environment has improved now.
Anything like this makes me cringe.
Hopefully they're wearing it as motivation to never pull crap like that ever again. Halo is your crown jewel franchise! Its your "Mario". The fact that you allowed that game to be shown in that state, tells me you're either that incompetent or that tone deaf.
where can I get one???
Spencer is trying too hard to take advantage of the meme culture. Like your old uncle that saw a TV show about it and awkwardly use it during family diner. Keep teams focused and motivated, try to achieve the best game possible, that’s what Spencer should look after and encourage by its position.
This is what happens when you contract out work and don't hire permanent staff for your game. It becomes a messed up craig. This isn't even really funny because Microsoft never came out and said they fixed the issue with their staffing.
As a reminder to do better?
I knew it, I guaranteed people Craig will be an easter egg or a legit character in infinite. I can see a scene where Chief is talking to friendly brutes and they all have some alien like badasss name then they get to 1 and he's like "I'm Craig" lmao I still don't understand the meme, is it because he doesn't look menacing and has a chill look on his face even tho he in a fight?
Because he is low res texture and non-emotive while he is getting smashed by Master Chief. He is taking a fatal beating and by his face it seems he couldn’t care less. Craig even groans in that clip but his face never moves.
Gotcha, I understand
Fascinating when a multi billion company pretends to be in on the joke. It is an embarrassment that after years of hype and bragging, they showed the game looking like that. Wearing t-shirts won't fix Microsoft's broken, empty promises.
I agree. Used to love halo but after 5 years of "wait till e3", teasers clips of halo infinite saying it's " running on a completely new engine". We've had a new xbox one x.... Now xbox series x All that hype & then they wheel out this steaming turd of a game. It's not fair on people
They’re owning it which is nice I guess
What is it that is wrong with you guys? I the same people who complain about SJWs getting offended and triggered by everything is the same people....getting offended and triggered by MS embracing this meme. I mean, why does it matter to you? Also people just want to complain. MS delayed this game to polish it up and make sure the final product is better and yet people still want to bash MS? Do we not complain about developers(Ubisoft) that releases products full of bugs and poor optimization? Did we not bash Bioware for Andromeda (My face is tired). So we have a dev that wants to release a better product, listened to feedback and is addressing the concern......and yet people still want to raise pitchforks against MS for taking the time to make the game better? Damned if you do damned if you dont.
I would be cautious about why it has been delayed and how it will end up. Crackdown 3 example has shown that delayed game does not means good game at the end.
Nothing against them embracing the meme but this is also mocking your own studio and the people who worked on this multi million dollar project.
that's just embarrassing. Xbox continues to make blunders
Become the Meme
It's fun to embrace meme culture, It's unfun when the meme In question is your consoles graphical capability. "World most powerful console presents Craig" :>
I love it!
Only MS, way to keep the bar low.
The graphics are ok nothing spectacular but the gameplay looks fun, definitely looking forward to halo infinite!!
Looks like quake 3 arena from the 90's. That was fun..but things have moved on
I have not stopped laughing since I read this. I googled the meme and theres so much gold.
Chase that paystreak my friend
Sony would never stoop this low. They have high standards and carry themselves professionally. Ms is pathetic.
I respect them for doing this. Almost every other company would be ashamed presenting such a laughable and low effort product to their loyal fans at the beginning of a new console gen. A product which gave birth to a new nickname for their entire fanbase, wasting millions of dollarsand having to delay it shortly before it suppose to release, but they don't give a f about having millions of fingers pointed at them.
and that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you kill a meme
