Halo 5

What that headline above me said!

Yes sir, the next Halo game will indeed be out in the spooky month of October. Revealed during an episode of The Walking Dead, you can catch the trailer for it below, which is all live-action and no gameplay at all. Plenty of dramatic music and plot teases however:

Spartan-IVs hunting down the Mater Chief? Colour me intrigued. Whatever has happened between the events of Halo 4 and the Halo 5, has obviously had a massive effect on the Master Chief and the universe around him. Now far more than human after his DNA was rewritten and evolved by the Composer, Master Chief is the only human in the universe who happens to have an immunity to the weapons of the Didact. Or as the official game synopsis describes:

War breaks out when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 goes missing as a rogue officer, and Spartan Locke is tasked with hunting down the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.

Weapons which, I suspect, have made their way into the wrong hands with disastrous effects of course. Still, I like the idea of facing foes that arenโ€™t Covenant or Promethean for once. Thereโ€™s something cool about the idea of being hunted. And hopefully, this will be a Halo game that has learnt a lesson or two after the disastrous launch of The Master Chief Collection.

Because that beta was a solid step in the right direction. October 27 then!

    I wonder if this game will turn everything around for MS? Who knows, maybe they will own the festive season this year?

    Prepare for the hunt??? Now they already got me worried about the story. I wonder what agenda Microsoft is going to promote with this game.

    Witcher 3 The Wild Hunt. Prepare for the hunt??? Hunt the trust??? No wonder Microsoft’s fascination with CD Projekt Red’s game. I liked Halo and all but I knew without Bungie they would fuck it up. And look they fucked it up. But Microsoft is going to go all out with this one. I hope it doesn’t work. Microsoft needs a wake up call. Didn’t E3 wake them up. Didn’t Sony’s 20 million sold wake them up. Going around trying to buy the word exclusive. At least their shit didn’t work on CDPR, cards and a clothed map.

    Don’t Support DRM. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming.

          Would you say Halo 4 was bad? as apparently you believe 343 is messing it up

          What is Microsofts “apparent” agenda?

            I know I troll you a bit but I have never tuned you for your written language (I can tell you’re afrikaans so I don’t give you a hard time). This, however, is gold. No offence intended.

        Oh I see what you do. You troll the PS4 games and features and now you troll me in order to promote the Xbox One. That in itself is very typical of what Xbox fanbois are made of.

        Ah let’s see. I didn’t mention anything about glitches. Oh. Witcher 3 is not perfect. But I didn’t say it was. Well it will be better at story telling and will you will end up playing it for much longer than Halo 5.
        Oh it’s on the Xbox One too.

            Stick to promoting the console or games. I don’t care. This Xbox One attack mode is not helping Xbox one nor the games.

            nasty??? have I insulted you or your console or game preference?

            I think you need to relook at what you type dude, seriously

            March 30, 2015 at 10:50

            How many comments did you make to promote the Xbox One and Halo 5? one? two? 3 maybe? or has it been zero.

            replying to all my shit. mmmm. I guess I said something…

            March 30, 2015 at 10:53

            im not promoting anything, just showing you where your comments continue to not make sense

            the only one with a agenda here is you, as you admit above that you continue to troll MS Xbox one posts

            seriously I think you cant see what you are typing or dont fully comprehend your own crap

            March 30, 2015 at 10:56

            I can’t see what I am typing. I don’t fully comprehend my own crap. What were you saying about insults. And I must say you fall straight into the Xbox fanboi camp with that. You the clever ONE. I’m the stupid one. See small letters. I am small. lol

            March 30, 2015 at 10:59

            yeh continue to talk crap

            and then put a “feel sorry” for yourself post later

            I still fail to see how I am the fanboi, all Im doing is showing where you continue to “troll badly” and push your agenda <– which continues to make no sense

            I havent even been pro anything, so no clue why you saying im being the "fanboi"

            have i said witcher is crap? have I said anything about Playstation or pc, being the opposite to what you think I play on?

            please tell me what my side is that im pushing???

          • Ryanza

            March 30, 2015 at 11:08

            You can say it. I’m not stopping you. Make a comment that stands on it’s own and say whatever you want to say. You replying to my bullshit. I’m not replying to yours. But the Xbox One fanbois will jump onto my comments.

            Or did you not want me to say that from what I saw in that video made me worry about the story. Did you only want me to say nice things about the sweet corporate man, I mean Halo man.

            I say what I want to say. And it should come as no surprise that I wont say nice things about the Xbox one. See small letters.
            You should do the same. I mean write your own comments and not reply to people’s opinions and thoughts with your own opinions and thoughts acting like it’s better. Just a thought. lol.

          • SojournZA

            March 30, 2015 at 11:14

            you admit you are a troll, you admit to talking bullshit.

            the issue is almost everything you talk about is not real, you the one with a agenda on the forums who cant actually answer when called out on your opinions. you should be able to at least do this, especially without resorting to childish attacks, calling people fanbois etc when clearly the person is you and you openly admit it

            if you wish to have an opinion, please be man enough to not resort to stupid remarks and actually share your idea and take into account other peoples opinions.

            Im still dying to find out about how many DRM items you actually have

          • Ryanza

            March 30, 2015 at 11:31

            Why you on my case for this comment I made. Is it because you didn’t accept my answer last time. Weird.

            I never said I am a troll. Just the perception I get. When I have to reply to peoples bullshit under my comments.
            Everything I talk is not real. Again with that perception I get.

            I do talk bullshit. I like bullshit. But most of my bullshit…
            Hey I will say this. If I feel Halo is going to be a good game, I will say so. I was saying nice things about Destiny because of Bungie before I saw how shit that turned out.

          • SojournZA

            March 30, 2015 at 11:37

            Why am I on your case?

            I have continued to ask you questions which you ignore. Ill try highlight them for you

            1. what platform do you play on?
            2. do you have anything installed that has DRM?
            3. is the majority DRM, enabled?
            4. Can you agree Halo mp should in all essence outlast the SP of the Witcher?
            5. What is MS agenda you say that they are pushing here?
            6. Did you play Halo 4?
            7. with the above in mind, do you still believe without Bungie, Halo 5 will be a mess?

          • Ryanza

            March 30, 2015 at 11:56

            See. You assume that I will stop playing the witcher after I have finished the story. Play Halo campaign start to finish and then play each mp mode on each map. Then stop playing.
            So yes the witcher 3 will be longer. But you think that you playing the mp over and over again out weights me playing the sp over and over again. But you didn’t grasp at what i was saying or you just didn’t care.

            Last time I told you it’s not about me. But just look how you trying so hard to make it about me. Sad when you take millions of people and condense them into one. See small letters.

          • SojournZA

            March 30, 2015 at 12:03

            im not condensing anything again you trying to get your way out of this by mixing your own words

            we were comparing game length for the general masses and not about you

            you talk yourself in circles

            your particular statement is below:

            “Well it will be better at story telling and will YOU will end up playing it for much longer than Halo 5. ”

            if you going to say we werent talking about the general public (then you admit partially that the mp (halo) will most likely outlast the sp (witcher) then we can take the word I made case sensitive. how do you know what I will be doing in the future?

            “Last time I told you it’s not about me” <– I didnt start the comment section with anything, you did about YOUR opinion, so yes you made it about you, and all I have done is question you on it, which you still evade, evade, evade.

          • Ryanza

            March 30, 2015 at 12:06

            Then I will ask you again. When is the next Halo coming out? lol. Oh these Halo and Xbox fanboys.

          • SojournZA

            March 30, 2015 at 12:11

            thats as stupid as asking, when is the next witcher coming out?

            you are trying to turn this into a “Witcher is better then Halo, debate” of some sort.

            If you need a answer I am “guessing” this will depend on market sales and general consensus, this should directly be in proportion to the Witcher series. Unless they wish to tie up either one of the above series now. but we all know, money at the end is the deciding factor

            and again you calling fanboi

            I think it’s a safe bet to say that Pokemon has been ‘replayed’ more then either of these games. It’s of cultic proportions. Pokemon never gets any sort of updates and was only available on one device.

            Lots of people think Pokemon is shit, lots with think W3 is shit, lots will think Halo is shit. I think you’re all shits!

            in regards to:

            and no you never answered me just evaded as you doing here:

            http://www.lazygamer.net/general-news/twitch-boss-predicts-the-end-of-consoles-as-we-know-them/

            so i just wanna clear this up, you do support DRM through your own purchases.

            but for the common man (no interwebz) you vocally cry support for there needs, not your own? for neutrality etc?

            hmm seeing halo 1 – 4 mp still be played alot, I dont see why you cant understand this. A new halo doesnt mean the previous mp value gets put away

            Your instructions clearly point to “length” as being the primary factor but then you use “biggest” in the last sentence. I would suggest that girth also be taken into consideration for this?

        I’m hoping there’s a huge bug which requires a day one patch.

        I don’t like Destiny as much anymore, but it provided me with lots and lots of fun.

          Yeah boat loads of fun while it lasted , and I think it released at the perfect time , no real competition when it released.

        Activision is my guess to that Destiny hollowed out mess. How much did that season pass cost?

    But will it have matchmaking? Actually this is one of the games that will help me decide if I really want an XBOX One.

      No you don’t want one. If you have a PS4 you have no need for one. If you have planed one Halo you have played them all. If you played 1 Gears then you played them all. If you played one Forza then you played them all.

        Yeah the trick with Halo and Gears is Friends just like destiny , the game campaign is average , but add some cool friends and the game comes alive.

    Cant wait for halo 5, Story looks interesting. I will be the first to admit not liking Halo 4 all that much but Im hoping 343 can turn it around. As for Bungie, Destiny is shite.
