An Interesting First Look. Still excited. (Gaming)

It definitely has a simplified aesthetic. I'm OK with that, but it didn't WOW me like I thought it would.

Chief's armor aesthetic is great! Everything else looks like cheap plastic (is Halo Infinite just a commercial for their Mega Blox toyline?). And the lighting in 343's Halos is just straight up gross.

I've enjoyed Halo 4 and 5 despite their flaws, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this one to some degree as well.

A few of us are having "fun" playing through Halo 5. The game series just delivers on sandbox fun, even when we're just blowing each other up.

Halo doesn't sit on some untouchable pedestal for me, I get why it does for so many people (don't @ me). But just like other forms of media, I'm OK with it evolving and changing.

Aside from being vocal about Halo 4 and 5's absolutely garbage art direction, writing, dialogue, technical issues, and characters, I do like them enough. Halo is ever-changing, and though it adapts to the gaming zeitgeist at a slow (and occasionally sad) pace, I'm all for it pushing itself forward. Sprint? Perfect! Clambering and dodging? Let's go! Grappling hook? Yipee-zippy!

I'll be there day one if anyone wants to co-op or form a fireteam for MP!

Because I don't have to pay for it (Have I mentioned Warframe Gamepass around here yet?), I'll be there Day 1 as well.
