Podtacular 606: Where in the World is Halo

We’re once again, news-less for this episode as it looks like the Community update was delayed. With not much to talk about in the community either, we’re left to our own devices and decided to talk about some of the upcoming Halo productions, like Halo 6 and the ever elusive Halo TV Show. It sounds like the holidays are going to be a quiet time, so we’re looking to pull some community guests and have another book show soon.

Podtacular 604: Micro-req-actions

The holidays are back, which means we’re facing a lull of Halo news, but the never ending controversy behind micro-transactions has reared its head again after an announcement from EA regarding Star Wars Battlefront II. It’s very evident that within the video game market, a lot of sustainability and longevity of games are coming in the form of micro-transactions and that is true Halo as well. We’ve seen it in Halo: Spartan Assault, Halo: Spartan Strike, and Halo 5: Guardians. While we anticipate the trend to continue, it’s good to analyze what’s out there and what we feel as Halo fans is acceptable and desirable for future Halo titles.
