@LtSarge Ah thanks. I'll get on it then. Off-topic, but how did you change your avatar? I've been trying, but this site has been giving me trouble.

@Royalblues If you click on your username in the top-right corner of the page and then click on your username again it will bring you to your profile. From there, you should see two buttons to the left of your username in the top-right corner: one for social media and the other to edit your profile (shaped as a pencil in a square). If you press the second one, you should be able to access your account settings and change your avatar. For some reason, that button doesn't show up normally in the menu bar.

@Royalblues yes you can do side content but annoyingly you can’t go back and replay missions and so there are lots of missable collectibles, skulls etc.

@LtSarge I enjoyed reading your review on the other thread. Very different experience to mine above, but plenty of room for different views.

@LtSarge Darn, I don't see those two buttons. Thanks for your help. I don't want to derail this topic further.

@themightyant Whoa, then I need to take my time as I play the campaign. Darn. Why is there only one save file?

@Royalblues actually there are four save files, you can start a new game and some collectibles like audio logs and skulls will carry over from your previous files. Oddly, some collectibles you only unlock once, like the cabinets, do not carry over.

I've been plugging away at Halo Infinite and it's better than I expected it to be. I just got off killing the three AA guns on that isolated island.

I love all the hero moments in the cut scenes. The sidekick is great too. It's a very nice story with nice characters so far. The baddies ham it up a little bit though!

I'm always a bit hot and cold on the Halo series as a whole. It's just a mixed bag for me. There are great moments but then there's also the archives style repitition. I think I am enjoying going for collectibles in this one. I like grapnel gunning my way up the highest cliffs.

Decent game so far, anyway.

@ralphdibny I'm just about to start this section. I've only played the original Halo before this one and that was a few years ago in the Master Chief Collection, so long after original release. I'm loving it. Some of the story is beyond me since I don't have the knowledge of the old games. But I'm still enjoying the cutscenes as well as the setpiece action sequences between them. It's definitely the most fun I've had playing a FPS.

This is also the first time I've delved into the world of online multiplayer for this type of game and it's a blast.

Mayo for Sam. Year TBC.

@blockfight nice one, glad you are enjoying it.

I have played all the FPS Halo games but for the life of me, I just can't remember the ending to Halo 5: Guardians 😅. Seems like something really bad happened at the end of that game considering the state of affairs at the start of Halo Infinite! I have no recollection of it whatsoever lol

I'm on my 4th play through of this and I'm going for the LASO acheivement, which, as you would expect with a Legandary play, is bloody difficult. Currently I'm trying to work my way to the first boss fight to be able to get on to the surface of the ring. Having all the sculls on is making it that much more of a challenge as there's no HUD and to get checkpoints you need to have full health and to get that you need to melee the bad guys! Such fun!
Great game though and an enjoyable entry in the series. I'm looking forward to where they go from here.

I'm still on my first playthrough on Legendary - collect and do 'everything' play through. Whilst its not as hard as the LASO (although don't need to do 'everything'), it can still be brutal at times. I think I'm getting close to the 'end' as I am about to tackle the final part having rescued every squad, destroyed every propaganda tower, collected every spartan core/mjolnir armour etc with just a few outstanding Skulls, Audio logs etc...

I've enjoyed every minute so far....

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

I managed to reach the surface of the ring over the weekend and I've nabbed the secret Scorpion gun so that will make things a whole lot easier going forward. To be honest, the first boss was loads easier than the build up to getting to him. I think I only died about 8-10 times on it. Clearing out the base and then the first FOB was a breeze, so I'm hopefull that the rest will be fairly easy going now.
As for full completion, I've got my first file sitting at 97 or 98%, so I'll got back to that to mop up the Spartan logs and the UNSC ones. I already have all the Banished logs, armour and upgrades.

@JohannVanDerSmut That was pretty much my take too. Seems polarising some people likes the character arcs. Wasn’t a fan of the way they changed chief either but each to their own.

Agree the most important thing, the moment to moment gunplay, was brilliant. But I wasn’t a fan of the far cry style outposts instead of carefully curated set pieces. So few epic, memorable moments compared to previous Halo’s.
