Halo 5

Halo 5 Guardians [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

There are a lot of changes in Guardians, mechanically and otherwise, most of which are for the better. While the campaign's narrative does have some major shortcomings, it still created some amazing Halo moments that I'll remember forever. The multiplayer has also been updated and refined also adding a completely new Warzone mode that is incredibly fun and will be for quite some time.

The Pros: 

+Legendary mode is quite challenging
+Warzone is fantastic and a great addition
+Some memorable set pieces

The Cons: 

-Squad AI is shoddy, at best
-Campaign heavily focuses on Osiris Team
-Short campaign with an unclimactic ending

As a massive Halo fan, I always become increasingly excited the closer the launch of a new Halo game nears. Halo 5: Guardians was no different. It's been 3 years since Halo 4, and we'll finally get to continue on with Master Chief's story and face a new world-ending threat that must be stopped. Being the first Halo on the Xbox One, Guardians has a lot to prove and 343 Industries has taken a lot of measures to ensure that this Halo is different in many ways.

Halo 5 Collector's Edition Disc Upgrade Process

It's no secret that I'm a massive Halo fan. The amount of Halo related toys, games, and other items I have aside from the games is borderline obscene. The long awaited Halo 5: Guardians is a few short weeks from release and with any major AAA release, there's also an accompanying pricey Collector's Edition that nets you a bunch of physical goodies alongside the game for the massive fans like myself.

What I wanted to see at E3 2015

It's no secret that E3 2015 was absolutely fantastic for gamers. The big names had some bombs to drop and the real winners were us the gamers. To say that it's going to be a very expensive Holiday this year is a massive understatement. But there were some things that stood out for me, a few things that I wanted to see at E3 that weren't shown or mentioned.

Xbox @ E3 2015

Bethesda started E3 a day early with their first ever press conference. It had some monumental moments of its own, like the gameplay reveal of Fallout 4 and its crazy crafting system that is sure to have gamers pouring hundreds of hours into the game later this year. Not to mention finally seeing what DOOM is going to look and play like. Now Microsoft finished their press conference for Xbox, and if you know me at all you know how much of an Xbox fan I am. To say I left their conference excited is quite an understatement.

10 Games to Look Forward to in 2015

It’s difficult to not get excited about this year’s game releases when you start to go through the list and see what’s scheduled to come out. It’s going to be a big year for gaming with all of these massive releases, and I actually had to cut quite a few games from this list to cap it at 10. Now granted, things can change, and some of these don’t have set release dates yet, but they are a safe bet that they will release this year barring no substantial delays.

Halo: Nightfall - Impressions

To say I'm a massive Halo fan is putting it lightly. I have a borderline obscene collection of anything Halo related: games, toys, novels, art, you name it. I've already accepted the fact that there's likely not going to be a big budget Halo movie, as that seems to have fallen through the cracks over the years, which is ok. Instead, we've been given Forward Unto Dawn which was a live action short set in the Halo universe, a direct tie in to Halo 4, and now we're able to see the next chapter of the Halo live action films - Halo: Nightfall.

Halo 5 Logo Spotted At A Microsoft Showcase

At a Microsoft presentation given to a Channel 4 Reporter at Microsoft Redmond's Offices concerning the future application of the Microsoft Kinect, a Halo 5 logo was spotted. Seen right next to logos for "Grandma's Room" and Project Gotham Racing, here's the main question about the Halo 5 logo: what happened to Halo 4?
