I just managed to corrupt my save on PC because I changed my controller from wired to bluetooth and that's not mid session, wired last week bluetooth today. Seems it detects it as a new input and asks you to sign in with it, but this means you're signed in twice which causes an issue.

 

Looking around the message seems to be if the game asks you to sign in again don't, close and restart.

 

I was a few hours in so could be worse but it's still bloody annoying.

I think I'm approaching the end now - and overall it's getting the thumbs up from me.  The last section really isn't anywhere near as bad I was expecting, although I MUCH prefer the open world to the umpteen corridors and tight corners.

 

Hoping to finish it tonight.

My campaign saves just disappeared :( seems to be some manner of known bug. It's still showing as completed on Heroic on some profile page in the game, but all the skulls are gone.

Hard to know if it's exactly what happened as my son was playing at the time (or at least loaded it up to play). 40 hours on my save, I think about 15 on his. I'm not all that fussed about it as i've finished it, but I can't load it up and go to a fully loaded FOB until we play it all again. Might just do an normal or easy run with the scorpion gun.

Really worries me that MS are taking on way too much with their new acquisitions. If they can't even get Halo right after this amount of time and money and Forza Horizon is crippled with bugs, the outlook for their other studios is fairly depressing. I just don't see any of those franchises they just bought being nurtured or developed in a meaningful way.

And.... finished! 

 

Very good overall, but it really should have been spectacular. Hoping for extra content further down the line.

 

What it gets right it absolutely nails and there's a fuckload of fun to be had with it.

LOL these guys are useless, multiplayer modes still broken after two months and a permanent save corruption bug in the game since launch.

A bit out of character for you to be slagging 343 off ;)

I’m mostly loving this but the boss battles are fucking tedious. Just getting repeatedly smooshed by

that twat elite when trying to rescue the pilot. fuck off with your invisible self. It’s like they’ve gone out of their way to make the most annoying boss fight. Confined space, invisible opponent, one hit kill. Fuck. Off.

Are you using the Threat Sensor?

Yep.

But they get taken out too quickly, or he appears out of nowhere anyway. I’ve entered the battle with my preferred mooching around combo of a battle rifle and shotty, so I need to swap the BR out for a plasma or something for the shields. I fucking left a rocket launcher in the last room too. Which was dumb move. 


They're such a jarring change of pace to the rest of the game, like halo has always been about approaching the battle how you want to, snipe from miles away or pile in, mix it up. Then you just get forced into a massive difficulty spike of a restricted boss fight. It’s like a different game. Don’t like them one bit.

Fucks sake. Beat that guy then on to 

Spoiler

The brute leader. Got to the third stage of the battle where he just twats you to death with a hammer and the game glitched out and embedded me in the floor. Reload and I’m back to square one. Fuuuuuuuckkkkk oooooffffffff

Worst Cortana model yet! Also, they’ve gone with the same VA as the game, but changed the Chief. Reasonable if you want to bring in famous talent, but I’ve not heard of the guy playing him before.

As long as you're relatively "levelled-up" you can beat this guy with absolute ease. There's so many weapons lying about and - as always - the rule of Plasma weapons on shields, Kinetic weapons on flesh you need to stick to. Also keeping your distance is the most important thing, always shooting him from a good distance.

Also, this guy. If you take down his shields you can headshot him in one. 
The bosses are not hard.

It’s more a case of one mistake and you are dead. Especially in the third phase. 
Getting stuck on a crate or bit of scenery. Death. 

Missing the grapple shot. Death. 
Mis-time the dodge. Death. 
I just hate those bosses that just run up on you and one punch man you to death. It’s tedious and just not what I find enjoyable. 


Didn’t help that I had to do the first sections a couple of times after the game grapple-shotted me under the floor.

Yes, but as I’d explained I was carrying 2x kinetic guns and getting punched to bits trying to find some plasma. In the end I hit him with shock cores then grapple punched him to death. In one.
Anyway, thanks for the patronising tone, I found quite a few of them hard, just telling me they’re easy doesn’t help.  The rest of game was easy enough, but I’m only playing on heroic.

the red hunters you encounter towards the end.  Hated that pair of twats - took me ages to beat them!!

 

 

Spoiler

I beat them by hiding behind a pillar, and using the quick dash ability all the time. Then just kept shooting them in the knees. Then hammer.

Oh I was far more cowardly.  Hid behind the barrier, snuck out of it to throw sticky grenades then ran around the room as quickly as I could when they got too close.
