Podtacular 423: Guardians Unite

Download
Yesterday, thousands of Halo fans were united in celebrating the announcement of Halo 5: Guardians. Master Chief’s journey continues Fall 2015, but people are already excited and speculating on where Chief’s journey is taking him, who is this new Spartan depicted in the teaser image and dissecting every pixel of the concept art posted by Frankie. Even knowing so little about the game, the recent actions of 343 have not gone unnoticed and Bonnie Ross’s statement about embracing the community has given Halo fans a new spark to gleam on. Epic news of epic proportions calls for an epic podcast, so we pulled some of the best minds from the Halo community to talk about this monumental announcement. Joining us is Greenskull (@Greenskull) from Ready Up Live, Mark Turcotte (@MarkTurc) from Guardian Radio, Vanirfreyja  (@Vanirfreyja) from GrifballHub and the former BigTeamBattle.net, Laird (@LairdSVF) from Halo Collector, SaUcEySOARS (@SaUcEySOARS) from Beyond Entertainment, Matty McDee (@MattyMcDee) from /r/Halo, and lastly Chance King (@HaloDispatch) from Halo Dispatch.  Make sure to check out all of our guests and their sites and show your support for the Halo community.
