    I'm wondering if we're going to get a total throwback to classic Halo in the sense of the controls and stuff. I actually play H5 quite a bit (I'm annoyed at how long the matchmaking takes). But I agree that the older games were "more fun" overall. It seems like 4 and 5 were disappointments to fans of the classics, so I wonder if 343 is just "clearing the table" and trying to make Halo the way Bungie would have in the first place, even if that means seriously messing with some of the design and art style they established with 4 and 5.

    343 could just add the option to switch between old style player movement / controller layout and the new moveset/ abilities. In my opinion sprint is a must, wouldn't play without anymore....controversial....maybe. Would like to see assassination-animations if you frontally Spartan slide into someone. Add weakness like weakened shields during that and overuled by supershield - fine by me.

    Yeah, not having sprint in the older Halos was kind of weird. Sprinting is kind of fundamental to combat. But the simplicity is nice.

    I always thought of no sprinting as logical, why would you not go full speed in war, and the armor is heavy so slightly slower.
    I also really hope they keep ground pound so hope it's not completely changed.

    Yeah, that's true. But Sprinting from cover and stuff like that makes sense. Funny how in Reach sprinting is like a armor mod, but in 4 and 5 the suits are "new and improved" and allow sprinting right off the bat.

    Ground pound is interesting. It's pretty cool, but it seems kind of like a power ranger move:lol:

    Shouldn't it be "Go GO HALO RANGERS"?

    It just doesn't sound as good. I was going to say Go Go Power Spartans but arbiter is in there

    We can make a chant of deterrence for the Halo Non-fanboys.

    "GO GO HALO STRANGERS!"

    I wonder though... will Halo: Infinite be the final Halo? I mean, they aren't calling it Halo 6 so maybe that means something? At least the final one in regards to Chief's storyline? Maybe we will see new spin-offs using the new engine in the form of Reach/ODST remakes??

    I like what I saw it was promising, but I will not set expectations high. And with it being a release title for the Project Scarlet new Gen Xbox that means a new console I rarely play... again

    That's a dirty shame! I had (naively) assumed that Infinite would be an Xbox One title. I was debating if I would buy it at launch or wait (basically a year or two) until the price went down to a reasonable level. Now I would have to buy a whole new console. As far as I know, Infinite is the only release title I'm interested in.Oh well, Infinite is either going to be the redemption of 343i or the final nail in it's fan-pronounced coffin.

    Launch day will still be exciting though.

    im not sure but i think scarlet is a new version of xbox one so it is possible that the launches are only timed together and it handles better on the new xbox but could still run on the original xbox one

    At 343i Community Day there was an hour long presentation by the director of the Infinite trailer and it's only a short one minute thing but they pointed out so many secrets that are hidden in the details. I am super excited for this game.

    They were pretty light on specifics and quite a few things are behind NDA protection so :whistle:

    What can you tell us? C'mon, you can't tease and then say nothing. :p Really banking on the "Quite a few things" part pf that...

    Im sure they will have Infinite run on Xbox one, but it will probably release alongside the new console in 2020 or something. One of those "Runs best on Xbox Two" deals. I'll probably buy a gtx 1070 sometime between now and then instead of upgrading to the new Xbox and save some money. I don't have a 4k tv, and Microsoft is kinda focusing on resolution more so than framerate.

    So you mean, you got on the inside of a secret 343i pow-wow? Part of me wants to interrogate you, but I wouldn't want to encourage anything unethical....:D
