    It is indeed a godly weapon.

    Talking of godly weapons, has the pro pipe made it into regular matchmaking?

    No, but it's abundant in super fiesta, which I've been playing quite a lot of recently.

    Pretty sure it is on some maps, possibly in Social rather than Ranked.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, I heart Super Fiesta.

    Also, STOP! Hammertime.

    So do you think MS is putting Halo on the backburner for now?

    We've had a mainline Halo game every 2-3 years since forever, but now we haven't heard anything in a long time. I know they were busy with Halo Wars 2, but if Halo 6 were coming out within the year, they'd have probably announced it already.

    If so I'm screwed because I made it one of my new year resolutions to buy at least one full priced game at launch this year (gotta put something in that GOTY 2018 list), but unless a new Halo or Project Zero is released, I can't think of anything else that I would want badly enough.

    I still think Halo 6 will be 2018. Every mainline game has been three years, with the exception of Reach - 4, but there was a dev team handover then.

    Phil Spencer has said that he wants shorter announcement-to-release cycles, so I could see them announce Halo 6 sometime before E3 (remember that 5 was actually announced in a blog post before E3 2014) . Plus, if Halo gets pushed back a year, then so does Gears 5.

    I also think Halo 6 will be this year. If not in 2018 (or early 2019), then I think that would be bad news! Spencer did indeed say they wouldnt announce so far in advance (having been burned by cancellations and long delays).

    I do wonder what Halo 6 will be. I would be happy with a strong narrative driven Master Chief campaign, with a season pass campaign following other characters (like the recent Wolfenstein 2) or ODST 2 (still the best halo!!!)

    Great games earlier.

    That Firefight on Temple was a ballet. Everything I did was a headshot, every move I pulled was a glorious mess of explosions and agility. At one point I ran around the central temple from bottom to top, unloading BR and switching to Gunfighter when empty, pow pow pow, then a sticky on a grunt, panics into his chums, and then a groundpound back down to finish. The combination of agility, grenades and hip fire never, ever, ever gets old, and you can shove any ADS bullshit all day long.

    Yeah that was 3 great games, really enjoyed it tonight. The BTB matches were also great fun, especially the first one.

    I still think Halo will be this year. If Halo gets pushed back, so does Gears.

    Maybe he was thinking of asking you to play Chris, did you ever think of that??

    The 3 year gap is perfect. I'm actually starting to really look forward to a new one in the series.

    Let's have a broader focus on pvp other than strictly pro though yeah? Arena is fabulous but infantry/vehicle maps always felt off and their refusal to make proper BTB maps was rather telling.

    Also, bring back proper Breakout!

    I might actually get round to playing the Halo Wars 2 campaign in preparation.

    I was in a Zelda fugue state at the time. Nothing else really got a look in.

    It's one of the games I've left on my hard drive in my big wipe so I definitely intend to return to it. I want to do a Gears 4 run and get back into Xcom 2 so they're being reinstalled at some point too.

    Well I feel silly.

    Well, it frees up one of my 10 games at least. But still, BOOOO

    4 years would be a big chunk o'dev time. Conceivably not Autumn 2019 but earlier, but that'd be a first.

    I am absolutely fine with 5 for a while yet, but I hope 6 is having the kitchen sink thrown into it. 5 has had so much extra stuff put in since release, I hope that's 6's minimum!*

    *as ever

    Also, yes, everyone play HW2. It's a good game, and the DLC is really good - albeit a bit pricey at full RRP.
