Feb delay isn't bad. Season pass, huh. Hm


I don't know if I care about the Beta though, I don't like play RTS's competitively. I hope there are bots in the beta.

Holy shit, 400'000 people are watching the BF1 gameplay stream...
Looks insane. Hoping some more Titanfall 2 gameplay tomorrow. Much more my cup of tea

The trailer i saw said Feb 21 2017 at the end so 99% it's true.

Also there are 2 different editions + season pass

Deluxe includes season pass and if i remember correctly costs $80~
That doesn't seem too bad, i hope there is some physical component to the Deluxe edition.

A season pass...

Sigh

Is this confirmed? Doesn't really make sense to have a beta this far out from launch. I know H5 did it, but that was am entirely separate beast.
At least I'll have Skyrim Remastered to tide me over. :p
The beta tomorrow should be for actual balance and core mechanic feedback.

Halo wars delay makes sense. Since it looks like dead rising is gonna launch in the holiday slot it needed to get some space.

Anyone see the new "leak" of Halo 3: Anniversary? Some dude booting it up from the One dash entitled "SIERRA"

Edit: Here's the link for anyone interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgOOzYTlHu4
So the same menu, with added boot up from dashboard and extra message of the day pop up. If it's a fake, the original creator really added to his work. The pelican flying by the Covenant ships is still weird as hell.

wut @ the perfect

BTW, here's what happened to me when I mysteriously disconnected.

Haha - servers straight up said fuck you Blue lol.

well it probably proc'd off of not missing an AR shot and then not missing a BR burst.

still weird.
That's what I figured, still a strange glitch considering the supposed event for triggering the medal is

Perfect Kill

Kill a player in four shots with the Battle Rifle without missing.

I'm not gonna get like, banned for posting that, am I?

I hope it's real. Halo 3 was pretty great
Nah, if you're the one making a claim and it turns out to be false you can be banned, however posting a video like that won't get you banned.


Although I hope it's not real, H3A would be completely pointless. I guess we'll find out in a few hours though. E3 hype!

Not in this year. In 2017.
343i tends to announce and show their games in the same year. Don't think they would show H3A now and release it in 2017. Besides that, we also had the same video just from an other perspective and the guy who posted the 1st one is a known person, who makes these fake mockups.

We will know in 5:30 hours anyways.

The remakes. If it is a new sequel, they announce it way too early.

Even sequels try to be

1. CGI Trailer 1 year earlier
2. Gameplay Trailer year of release
3. Release

But with longer dev times Halo 5 and Halo Wars 2 fall outside of this. Both, however, did/are get/getting betas during their second showcase year which make the time to release fine.

Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer just reminded me how much I want hostile wildlife and exploration in my Halo games.

These ring and shield worlds were essentially wildlife conservations, but it never quite felt like it.

10 game losing streak going on in wz assault. yay... the thing is I don't even like it that much but it's the fastest way to get req points. So I'm playing a shitty version of wz becuase reasons. Does that seem backwards to anyone? Maybe 343 should just give req points to all the playlists so people can play what they want.

And holy hell I've played on Pegasus 5 times this morning. 343 get that shit out of here!

What you taking about, Wilis? WZA is superior to WZ. All the fat's gone, so there's no BS (like stolen boss kills, kill farming, dry spells etc). It's just pure action.

Is it reasonable to expect them to reveal the new update today? I'm really anxious to see some new maps.
