With the Halo Infinite Technical Preview still on-going, it seems people are checking it out for more than what the
We all know its coming.
Kinda fed up of BR at this point, but MP is F2P so it should be good regardless.
I've never liked BR and I just can't get into it, tried Apex, tried Fortnite, tried other games that have had it, I just dislike that mode.
Let us hope it's surprisingly good!
Not the least bit interested in BR, but basically everyone I know plays Fortnite or Warzone, so I understand why publishers are chasing after it.
I hope so. Would be pretty neat to at least try. Halo will always be an arena game to me first and foremost though even I love battle royale
Honestly the game feels so much like cod now what’s the difference? It has this heavy realistic vibe, plus sprint, and more human assault weapons. Playing the infinite test it feels like we’re never going back to the awesome cartoony graphics and physics of 1-3. RIP og Halo vibes.
Cartoony Graphics would get bashed too hard for it to be seen as anything even close to the realm of competing with Sony. Halo 1-3+ Reach and ODST have been immortalized for PC and Xbox already. Don't beg for crappy gfx for nostalgia's sake. This looks more futuristic and realistic than Halo has Ever looked. Please don't complain about that.
Wow really surprised at the value system here. Halo was never about stark realism. Spartans used to feel light and agile and the physics used to allow you to sort of ‘float’ a little and nade jump and offered TONS of unpredictable physics related moments that made the game constantly unique. I love that the games have been immortalized but even 3 is like 15 years old, I would have loved a true to form new Halo. Also ‘cartoonish’ doesn’t mean crappy graphics wtf are you on about? Have you played borderlands 3? Which btw is not what I mean, but there used to be a certain art style to halo that was magically sci fi and full of wonder. 5 and now Infinite just feel like all that wonder is gone. I play a heavy soldier covered in heavy armor, doesn’t move like a super soldier so much any more, everything has heft to it. There are a million shooters like that already. It just doesn’t stand out as much any more. It’s still fun, don’t get me wrong, but it’s eons away from any of the signature things that made the franchise so special in the past.
I guess I saw what you were saying the wrong way. I would love Halo regardless of gfx, and I love borderlands and all kinds of cel shaded and cartoony games, but I think the choice here was to make it look as good as graphically possible, While still looking like Halo.
Halo 1 and 2 only seem cartoony in hindsight (and sure, with the rag doll physics). At the time the games were released it was considered very realistic.
Yes and no. I agree graphics were more limited then, but 1-3 always had an air of not taking themselves too seriously, they had funny enemies, sometimes funny and unpredictable physics, and 3 in particular has this sort of pseudo realism that’s a little bit cartoonish and less gritty, the lack of grit I think is part of what made Halo stand out from cod and battlefield and all these realistic trudging through mud games. Halo you used to glide over the mud, now you trudge through it. I’m not saying it’s not fun, always great to get a new shooter that handles well, but it’s certainly far from what made Halo 1-3 multiplayer feel so special and unique.
I’m cool with them adding it in as long as they have equal focus on ranked and BtB.
It honestly, just makes sense. BR games are the most popular shooters out there. I know some of you don't like it and I get it. It is what it is though.
At this point it's just another game mode added to most games, as long as it isn't the focus of future updates I don't mind it
