Spartan Ops Episode 6 After Show

Spartan Ops After Show

Hello and welcome to the Spartan Ops After Show, where we talk about Spartan Ops after the show is over! It has been six weeks since the Spartan Ops mid-season cliffhanger. Episode 6 is out now; it’s called Scattered, and it’s pretty amazing. We’re here with the main cast of Halo: Infinity. Today, the actors who play Crimson team are going to be sharing their thoughts about this week’s episode. If you haven’t seen it for yourself yet, there might be spoilers!

Note: Since this is the internet, we’re going to spell this out very clearly. We’re not talking to actual actors, or even anyone from 343 Industries. These characters are just literary devices to convey my thoughts on the Episode in what I hope is an entertaining way. The personalities you’ll be reading are all fictitious.

Halo 4: A Recap of Spartan Ops Episode 5

Spartan Ops: Episode 5 Recap

How are you doing? Have you been enjoying our recap series for Spartan Ops? That’s nice; it’s Friday so it’s time for another installment. This week we’re looking at Episode 5, “Memento Mori.” If you’re not familiar with Latin, it translates to ‘remember your mortality.’ Fitting in more ways than one, because this is our last entry of the recap series. However, we’re not done with Spartan Ops yet. Next week, we’ll be covering the new episodes as they come out. It’ll be great!

Since this is the last recap, we’re going to be doing something a little different. This week’s cinematic will be embedded behind the cut, same as always, but we’re not going to be discussing it. In fact, we’re not going to be discussing the episode very much at all this week.

I mentioned in our overview that I didn’t care for Spartan Ops so far. It has its moments, to be sure, but it’s still very lackluster. However, I never really expanded upon that thought because I knew we’d be doing a recap; my intent was that you would have seen me air my grievances with the content each week. I’ve certainly aired some grievances, but not all of them. The past five weeks have been leading up to this point, so I’m going to be driving that nail home.

I Used to Play Super MNC

I Used to Play Super MNC

I really enjoyed playing Monday Night Combat (MNC). I enjoyed playing it on the Xbox Live Arcade, and I enjoyed playing it on Steam. I have very fond memories of the game. When Super MNC was announced, I was excited; when I heard about all of the changes Uber was making, I was wary. I tepidly signed up for the beta anyways.

I didn’t enjoy Super MNC at first. After participating in the beta for 60 hours, everything suddenly clicked. I would later go on to play Super MNC for over 200 hours; I actually played Super MNC more than I played MNC. In fact, Super MNC is my third most-played game of all time, with World of Warcraft and Halo 2 coming in at first and second, respectively. There were typically over 1,500 players online in Super MNC at a time, with peaks of 2,500 players, putting it among the top 50 games played on Steam.

I haven’t touched Super MNC since May, and having 200 players at peak hours is a rarity these days. What happened? I can’t speak for the thousands of players who have moved on, but I can tell you why I stopped.

Halo 4: A Recap of Spartan Ops Episode 4

Spartan Ops Episode 4 Recap

Is it Friday already? I guess that means it’s time for another installment of our Spartan Ops recap. I apologize for the lack of content this past week, but between my cold, the holidays, and Super Secret Stuff™, it’s been kind of difficult to get anything done. There will be non-Spartan Ops content next week. It’ll be sick, unlike me, because I’m kicking this cold’s ass.

This week we’re looking at Episode 4, “Didact’s Hand.” You should know the drill at this point; this review will show you the cinematic, a discussion about the cinematic and the chapters, commentary bashing/praising the episode, and an invitation for you to come back for more next week. That’s all happening below, after the jump. “Didact’s Hand” isn’t going to be nearly as bad as Episode 3 was, but it’s not going to be quite as good as Episode 2 was either.

Halo 4: A Recap of Spartan Ops Episode 3

Spartan Ops: Episode 3 Recap

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for another recap of Halo 4’s Spartan Ops! This week we’re covering Episode 3, “Catherine.” As usual, the episode cinematic is embedded after the jump, and there will be a bit of commentary following it. However, this week we’re doing something a little different.

Our format so far has been to embed the cinematic, talk about it, and then quickly cover the chapters. To mix things up, instead of covering the cinematic beat by beat, I’m just going to discuss two scenes. This episode doesn’t warrant much more discussion than that. Also, spoilers: this episode is bad. Double spoilers: if you haven’t played the campaign, you may be slightly more spoiled.

Halo 4: A Recap of Spartan Ops Episode 2

Spartan Ops Episode 2 Recap

Once again, this is a recap of Halo 4’s Spartan Ops. This week, we’re going to be talking about the cinematics and chapters of Episode 2, “Artifact.” If you missed last week’s recap of Episode 1, here’s a link! There may be spoilers for the Halo 4 campaign from this point forward. Like last week, we’ll try to keep the spoilers restricted to cinematic discussions, since that’s embedded after the cut and we’re still expecting you to watch it before reading the text that follows it. We’re going to be a little bit better about not spoiling the chapters, but there will still be some spoilers.
