Halo 5: Guardians Forbes 6 Part Series

October 11, 2015

The videos are in proprietary format, so they cannot be embedded.  Watch them here.  And to sweeten the pot, below is the 2 day old Fall of Reach Animated Series Launch Trailer.  I loved the novel.

Here’s the official gameplay trailer that was released today (Oct. 12th).

    I’m completely amped for Halo 5; the campaign co-op that is. The actual drop-in & drop-out are finally a reality due to dedicated servers. There’s no need to bounce back to the menu or lobby when someone calls it a night & bounces out. It should be seamless, so there’s no interruption of story. Awesome. According to 343, the campaign clocks in at 8-12 hours on ‘Normal’ difficulty. So, playing on and ‘Heroic’ for the first play through should extend the play time.

    MP versus is another story; I’m just cannon fodder when it comes to versus play, but Warzone seems like a mode that I can contribute to my team. The 12 vs. 12-player capacity in WZ hardens to the Titanfall-inspired gameplay. The AI on Halo 5 won’t be mindless like those experienced on Respawn’s game though, and that is a good thing.

    Halo 5 was a slow burn for me until roughly three weeks ago. I’ve been purposely keeping a media blackout on its development due to the abysmal FUBAR results of MCC. However, the production value of Halo 5 are through the roof. I’ve watched all of the vidocs on The Halo Channel (Halo Waypoint) entitled The Sprint series. You can tell that MS writes the Halo franchise development a blank check. There’s no doubt about it that this IP is their crown jewel perhaps rivaling Minecraft. The amount of people that are employed solely for this franchise is staggering. Anyways, in about two weeks we’ll be able to play out Master Chief and Spartan Locke’s perspectives, respectively. I don’t know what pathway this will wind up at, but I’m sure the ride will be engrossing and enjoyable. Whose gonna be my wingmen?

      I placed the official gameplay trailer on the actual post itself because it deserves to be there instead of buried in the comments.

    Not sure what I would do more in Halo 5. I do want to finish the campaign early as opposed to years later like H4.

    But Halo for me has always been the swiss army knife of pvp.

    Warzone is just adding yet another layer to all of that. If it works I can see myself dividing time between that, Arena and Customs.

    Now if they have a Spartan Ops with a progression system integrated to pvp, then I would be all over that too.

      LOL I thought I would get a PS4 cause they had more that I was looking forward to like Killzone (which is great) GOW (need I say more) and Uncharted………. (plus it’s the main console for Destiny….er what). The Order was good but VERY short like 4 HOURS and Bloodbourne is sex in a game. Kinda think I jumped to early in getting a PS4 but hopefully I shall be getting one in the coming weeks. See I have been good at home and my gf might be getting me one early for xmas WOOHOO
      But all in all I miss Gears and Halo plus playing with you guys……… MAN LOVE!!!

      My PC has been getting a lot of love lately and shall be soon….. REBEL GALAXY is sex in space.
