SO anyone play the tech preview?
I did, i liked that sprinting was largely unnecessary. I hate that there are like, four sources of in-game chatter at any given moment. All I want is Jeff Seitzer, nothing more.

Some peeps poked me to download the beta so I did.

All in all it seems really solid with a couple exceptions. I'm still unfamiliar with things, but most weapons seem to be balanced really well with the exception of the hydra.

The bots are actually pretty fucking neat too when you crank the difficulty up to max. I like how they juke and strafe like an actual experienced player would. What I find neat about them is that I don't particularily feel cheated by them if I get gibbed by them, more like I just got juked and missed my aim.

That's a huge step up from how awful the AI was in Halo 5. It makes me wonder, if they can make AI that decent, could they introduce them into firefight or even custom games involving forge mode?

The game itself is pretty solid but the monetization and progression system is ass.

I for one am glad that 343 built in weekly down time for me to not play their game anymore because I finished the challenges on Thursday or Friday and they don't refresh with new ones until Tuesday.

I love you, son.
If it wasn't for the open world Halo Infinite might be in my top 3 Halo campaigns, but the Ubisoft-esque elements and lack of biomes/environments knock it down.

Otherwise, story is decent if a little messy from having to address Halo 5 in some way but they handled it about as well as they could. Also suffers from Marvel-itis where a lot of the game is more concerned with setting up the next one than just telling a self-contained story.

That was something I was thinking of while playing it. I don't think the open world is a bad thing, it'd be fuckin' stellar if it was nailed properly, which they came close I think. (Think of how ODST would've felt if it had the scale and openness of Infinite's engine).

I actually quite like how they addressed the clusterfuck of what five did. Like they did a real good job of making five's plot elements have weight and meaning in terms of repurcussions, but they skipped the likely impossible part of trying to make a game revolving around AI's highjacking forerunner tech and telling everybody to be homies or die.

Spoiler
Fuckin seriously, half the game I was asking why the fuck the brutes were calling a skirmish on the ring a war and then the game fucking drops that Cortana obliterated their homeworld in the last segments. Like yeah, I guess I'd declare war too on the species that made the thing responsible for making my species suddenly endangered.

I think that's the off feeling I got from the game though. Marvel-itis sums it up. It seems like we hit a peak in the story, and then it just gets shut off for next time. (Unless they go take an interesting approach and add more story segments as DLC later on, dunno if I'd be game for that or not though)

It's a real shame there weren't more for biomes or environments though. Every section involving underground forerunner stuff felt like a total fever dream though, where almost every structure is familiar in a deja vu kind of way, but all of it was gorgeously captivating without being an eyesore like 4's and 5's.

They did a ton of stuff really well in a lot of other areas too. I think they really need to be dropped some praise on their new engine in terms of technical feats they pulled off.

Ember used to be cool and funny

Now he's just gay
For me it's not so much only having one biome but the fact that the entire eastern half of the map is locked off from exploration, without any content outside of the one story mission that takes place there. Like I was seriously dumbfounded when I tried flying over there and got the "return to battlefield" message.

I'm thinking (hoping) that since Infinite is supposed to be a 10 year live service game, that they're gonna do regular story expansions (like the same way destiny 2 did it? Idk didnt play destiny) and maybe eventually a full campaign sequel(s) within Infinite, introducing a new biome and everything.

Atriox I'm cooming!
Was surprised though, had no expectation to like this game and only tried to because it was on gamepass, but I'm actually quite enjoying it. It's really fun to play, but definitely suffers from lack of biome diversity and not really any memorable set pieces. I like that enemy & ally AI will pick up better weapons on their own, killing a Jackal sniper and then having an Elite pick up their gun is both cool and irritating in a good way

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Cons:
Bosses are jank
Banished never shut up
One liners are painfully Marvel dialogue
Pulse carbine is lame
Stalker rifle is a fucking trash compromise of the beam rifle and covie carbine
Needlers are still worthless trash
No descope on talking damage is gay and definitively not halo
Escharum... *exhales* won't ever *raaaaaaagh* stop *snort* fucking *grrrrrrrrrrr* doing thiiiiiiiiisssss.
Phantoms are wack
Scorpion controls are only slightly better than in CE
Where the goddamn fuel rod cannon tho
Chak lol is a faggot
Jenga whatever is a bigger faggot
Absolutely zero thought went in to balancing boss fights
Speaking of, Myriad can just fucking kill himself before you do
No level select, restart the whole campaign just to go back for that skull or audio log you missed on one of the non-open world parts.
You have no fucking idea why you're here engaged in this war against the Red Covenant until a half hour from the end of the game

Pros:
Troop hog full of rockets or arcane beams is p fun
Exploring with the grapple is fun
The forest is a good choice if we're going to be stuck in one biome, at least it's not a fucking desert
Weapon is a cinnamon bun
343 made the best Spiderman game since the 2000 Neversoft release for the PlayStation.

8/10 would buy cat ears for my helmet for ten dollars.

I swear "Marvel" is the new "Call of Duty" style Popular thing bad placeholder of a non-critisism. There's guns in this thing that exists? Call of Duty knock off obviously. Person said a sarcastic or witty remark at any point ever? Fucking Marvel!

Pulse carbine is lame
Not true at all. It's a perfectly viable weapon if the enemy is standing perfectly still, not firing back and your melee button is broken. At least it's not the Ravager in multiplayer.
Quote

It's the Halo 5 Lightrifle with an extra zoom for some reason as opposed to those. Id still rather have them back though.

Needlers are still worthless trash
They ignore hunter and boss armor

It's not multiplayer nobody cares. At least they didn't bring back fucking flinch.

Co-op is going to be goofy with this. If Halo Infinite Troop Hogs could fly there would literally be no need for capital ships.

I think all of them are female in infinite, I haven't heard one that sounds male.

Tenrai should have it's own group of challenges separate from the standard list.

Fuck 343 for finally adding my weeb helmet only to put it behind another gate of worthless challenges.

The campaign was meh.  I was pleasantly surprised with the grapple hook function and had a lot of fun.  I didn't see much of a reason for open-world aside from dicking around with the grapple hook, because it suffers from the open world curse of having like....what, 3 chores to do?  Rescue Marines who just want mac n cheese, capture FOB, destroy refinery/weapons depot.  The DPRK propaganda towers are pretty funny, I suppose.

Also, hey let's just completely ignore 5 (aside from dialogue that sounds like 343 apologizing for it) and introduce more new enemies!  What happened to the Guardians?  Fuck 'em!  What happened to the Created and the Prometheans?  Fuck 'em!  Where's Arby, Buck, Halsey, Palmer, and Lasky?  Fuck 'em (maybe we'll add them in story DLC, who knows)!

The core gameplay is really fun, and I've been having a blast on Multiplayer.  The progression and MTX are pure cancer, however.

My new game enthusiasm has worn out.

Aiming isn't as bad as the Tech Tests but still sucks ass.
Melee play is awful and it seems like its like 90% due to the lack of any player collision. You either punch someone from several planets away or you phase through them and get back-smacked.

The radar isn't real. 90% of kills in big team are on people who just walked right past you like Hellen Keller.

The new weapons aren't fun. In particular the Bulldog is an actual Nerf gun and the Ravager may as well be the Cursed Halo Reverse Throwing Pistol.

Or you clearly hear your punch connect, but nothing happens, and you die.

Louder for the people in the back.  Radar is probably my one major gameplay gripe.

The disruptor is the most useless weapon I have ever seen in a Halo title. I’m not counting the Infinite PP cause that does negative damage and is useful for healing your enemies when you shoot at them with it.

i actually like the disruptor, it's pretty useful in widdling down shields, especially if the enemy goes behind cover

you're not gonna go on a rampage with it, but it can definitely be used as a support weapon
