The actual shooting (what you spend most time doing) seems to be getting unanimous praise.  complaints about the story I don’t care about - who actually plays halo for the story/lore?

 Looks nice enough and seems to run at a consistent 60 on the series x. 
 Looking forward to launch - even if DF at 400% zoom notice something.

Jeff Gerstmann said at first he thought the playlist complaints were a bit overblown on the Bombcast, then realised that he was quitting CTF matches every time he got one and admitted that this would be having a detrimental effect on the rest of his team.

 

They’ve said that one of the things that stops them easily adding and subtracting playlists is UI considerations which is a bit WTF for a live service game that they’ve stated they plan to use as their platform for a decade.

 

The other reason they’ve given is that slayer always end up being the the most popular playlist and they wanted to increase the population of objective games. Their approach really isn’t the way to do this though. If you force people to play modes they don’t enjoy, while some may grit their teeth and do them a lot a more  are likely to just quit the match types they don’t want or just abandon the game altogether and go play a title that just lets you choose to spend you time doing what you enjoy.

 

Exactly this. As a game designer your job is to provide players with the choice to play a game how the player wants, not to ram down your own preferences down their throats.

Just realised the electrician is coming to spend a day fitting new consumer unit and fix all the issues with the rental house we are in at 0800 on the 8th - FFS

 

Realy good reviews thus far, I hated Halo 5 SP and still haven’t finished it so was cautious about this but seems to be a banger :)

latest DF vid for anyone who is into that sort of thing:

 


i managed 5 mins before deciding I didn’t want to see much more footage/care about resolution scaling etc. 

 

 

I have no idea why DF make these long and very well produced post-mortem tech videos that are released immediately on the review embargo. Who wants to watch this even before the game is out? Obviously they do it to get the biggest hits potential but it's the most spoiler filled thing ever.

 Runs at 120 you mean?

That Eurogamer review reads like the kinda campaign where we all love it for month or two and look past the cracks to core shining game loop underneath, and then 6 months later the thread is entirely about the cracks and how they ruined the game.

 

And frankly, if I'm playing Halo over Xmas, I can live with that, but I'm pretty certain I'll be posting nostalgically for the over the top single player campaign once the dust has settled.

Bit of a disappointing tweet from John Linneman saying that if you've seen the previews, you've basically seen every environment. I was hoping maybe they were holding back some surprises. 

 

343 have been pretty up front about saying what you see is what you're going to get in the full product in terms of biomes.

Ah fair do's. I've been avoiding information where I can but noticed his tweet earlier.

who’s gonna pick 120fps mode over consistent 60 with with all the shiny? It’s nice that they can do it but seems more just something to put on the back of the box

Indeed. "Master Chief brings loads of guns to the job, as is his want"

 

I hate it when people use phrases that they don't understand but use them anyway. Especially journalists.

 

Come on man, that's obviously a typo.
