Thread Bungie announces Destiny 2 Showcase for Aug 22: “Witness what’s next”
Yes, but WQ was also announced in August and was originally due to be released the same year. So it's strange that now they are showing the new DLC in August again. Maybe they're so far ahead with Lightfall development that we'll get it this year? Of course it's probably coming in early 2023, it's just weird.

Thread Discord Voice Chat coming to Xbox consoles
"Once your Discord account is linked to Xbox, you can hop in a channel you'd like to talk in using Discord just as you normally would. On the Discord mobile app, you'll see a new option to Join on Xbox. At this point, you'll need the Xbox app to transfer voice chat from your Discord account to your Xbox. If you have it installed, the Xbox app will launch and let you connect the Discord Voice chat to your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One console." So it needs the mobile app at startup. That's not the Discord integration I'm looking for...

Thread Destiny 2: Season of the Haunted |OT| You reap what you Crow
Basically my main platform is Xbox Series X, but I also have PVE friends on PC and on PlayStation 5 (crossplay \o/) I also use Discord on PC, but I have problems with English (my native language is hungarian). I'd be happy to play Trials as a team if things work out, solo really isn't the best many times.

Thread Destiny 2: Season of the Haunted |OT| You reap what you Crow
I think I was the unluckiest Trials player last weekend. I'm not a good PVP player at all, but for some reason I still love playing Destiny 2. Mostly Control goes with friends or alone, but I also check out Trials of Osiris almost every weekend. I play solo most of the time because friends are not interested in that mode, and LFG is not a long term solution for me (Hard to speak in English. Yeah, i know...stupid thing...). Bungie told me earlier that Trials is problematic this weekend, plus I saw that there is no Freelance mode, still I thought I'd give it a try. I've had the hardest matches in months, but finally managed to solo my way to 6 wins before reset yesterday (Mercy done...). I finally got up the nerve to look for two players on LFG who would volunteer to help me win a match without a MIC, so I could finally get my first flawless in this season. I managed to find two great guys, got the win, was happy, thanked them, said good night and headed to the Lighthouse. After spawn, I took a picture of myself standing there alone and then I made my way to the chest. Then the game kicked me into the main menu, because maintenance had started. No loot, no emblem, no glowing effect, nothing... :) 39 wins - 94 losses - 0 true flawless

With the exception of the reputation bug, I had no problems with this mode, but the fact is that the Rift will not be my favorite. It was good for practice anyway, I'm much better at playing in regular Control.

Thread CoD Infinite Warfare's campaign is absolutely amazing
Btw, has YOLO mode (permadeath) appeared in any new COD since then? "Helmets are your only protection from headshots. They take permanent damage and need to be replaced. And if you get shot in the legs, your movement is impacted. If you get shot in either arm, your ability to use equipment or aim down sights is impacted. Oh yeah, and your weapon can be shot out of your arm."

I made two gameplay videos from Classic and Modern modes. I don't know why, but the game is very strange to me. Although it supports 120FPS mode (there is an FPS counter), sometimes the opponents seem to appear in 30FPS mode. (Strange wording I know, but maybe you get the point)

Thread CrossfireX |OT| Wartime Remedy (Campaign Chapter 1 free on Xbox Gamepass - MP F2P)
Catalyst after 1,5 hours: It's not that bad, it tries a little bit to be Call of Duty (not with much success), but otherwise not that bad in my opinion. I don't have a problem with direction, I like shooting, so it basically feels like a longer action movie for now. (Graphics: In some parts it looks good, in others it looks like it was about 10 years ago.)

Artifact VII: "My makers...the Forerunner's greatest fear was understood to be the Great Parasite. The Flood. A scourge that almost wiped out everything. I now believe this hypothesis to be incorrect. Their greatest fear is...was...losing their power. The fear of a master who would become a slave. Enemy within. That is the meaning of the runes carved into this monument. This runes predate me. Older then even the Forerunners. Time moves forward, and back again. As I say their name I feel...foolish. Uninformed. Misled. And i am afraid." I wonder if this will make sense in the future.

Thread Unreal Engine 5 vs. All other next gen engines
Unity. I would say CryEngine, but I seem to recall that there's a problem with it at the code level, which might make it problematic to use in larger multiplayer games. There was also a game where they replaced CE with Unreal Engine. But I don't know anything about it, I just thought I heard it somewhere. If I say something stupid, I'm sorry. :)

Thread Halo Infinite | Story and Lore (Spoilers)
I saw a conversation in 2019 after the E3 trailer with Chris Lee. He talked about the scene where the hologram shows the pilot's family. "He's watching the hologram, saying goodbye to his family, probably thinking that he's breathing his last breath." Of course, I know that was a long time ago. Maybe it was just a cover-up to hide the man's true identity. Maybe you're right, but I thought from the beginning that they were his family, just killed in one of the attacks.

This was explained back then: "From the High Prophet of Tolerance: "Hear now that 500 teams are to be formed to study the language of the Unclean. Each team to consist of the most clever and most educated Unggoy and Sangheili. These teams to speak only the Unclean language among themselves.

It was about 14 hours, after about 13 hours I got tired of FOB/Outpost cleaning and finished the campaign in an hour. I'll continue with the side missions this weekend, luckily the game will bring me back to the surface after the credit. Anyway, yes, I started playing it yesterday, but I don't sleep when Halo games come out :D

I'm done with the campaign, now the credits are rolling. That wasn't bad. I watched the legendary ending on Youtube: well lore fans will be happy I think, although that just gives us a lot more questions (Offensive Bias? Time Travel? Whaaat?? o.O) . We need a story dlc. Anyway, it was a really screwed up idea to have a video after the credits in normal mode, Legendary is the same, but with a separate conversation.

Thread Halo Infinite's XP boost promo seems....awful?
Wait. I'm confused. Normal level and battle pass level are two separate things in the game, right? You can increase your battle pass level by completing challenges, but your normal level increases in the normal way (kills, completed matches, etc). So 2XP is not useless if you want to reach max level faster.

Thread Splitgate: Open Beta |OT| Halo/Portal multiplayer mashup [Season 0]
I've been playing it daily since the first day of open beta (Xbox Series X) It's a Halo rip-off with portal gun and all the known weapons. (AR, BR, etc.) The only problem I have with it is the menu and the obtainable skins, which are very similar to Fortnite style, but I like the core game. Instagib, Swat and Team Shotty Snipers modes are the best. :D

Thread Halo Infinite | Multiplayer E3 2021 Overview
I am a QA tester, we started the closed beta at the end of August. Since then we have got the Insider program, so presumably the first test flight will come at the end of the summer instead of QA testing. I know what you mean by the way, it's just that the normal test for Halo 5 started much earlier, but we did a special test at the end of the summer before the launch.
