Halo Series Episode 8 Review – Discussing THAT Master Chief Scene

Stop me if you've heard this before, but the Halo series has continuously been a roller coaster ride of good and bad, and few episodes encapsulate that as well as this week's tale in "Allegiance." Join us on The Game Informer Show as we discuss the eighth episode of the series, break down the most significant moments, and discuss the scene everyone is talking about. Your regular hosts of Alex Stadnik, Andrew Reiner, and Brian Shea are back again and definitely have thoughts on the return of Master Chief, Makee, and Dr. Halsey. After a week away on Madrigal with Kwan and Soren, the focus shifts back to Reach and what the UNSC is doing about finding The Covenant and Halo. While the militaristic arm of humanity panics over other planets getting glassed by their alien foes, John and Makee are spending time getting to know each other after their shared vision of the show's namesake. While the universe's greatest Spartan and the Covenant spy fraternize in the park (and other places), Dr. Halsey continues to meddle in order to advance humanity in her image, threatening the people she's trying to save in the process. Will the good doctor's interference and the union between the main characters result in unity between the two warring factions or make the upcoming battle that much harder? You'll just have to listen to this week's show to find out. What do you think about Halo thus far? Be sure to let us know in the comments below. We'd also love your feedback on the extra GI Show episodes. Do you like them? Do you want to see us focus on games or the Marvel shows in the future? Please email us at [email protected] or reach out on Discord as we want to know what you think.

    Valkyrie Elysium descends onto PS5 and PS4 in 2022

    During PlayStation’s latest State of Play, we revealed Valkyrie Elysium – a fresh entry in the acclaimed Valkyrie series.

    The Valkyrie series depicts the end of humanity and their encounters with the gods through a unique world inspired by Norse mythology. 

    This thrilling new action-RPG brings this franchise to PS5 and PS4 in a brand-new standalone adventure. 

    We have a lot to tell you about, but before we introduce about the game, let’s take a look at the announcement trailer:

    Valkyrie Elysium descends onto PS5 and PS4 in 2022

    What is Valkyrie Elysium?

    Valkyrie Elysium is an action-RPG featuring an epic story, beautiful environments, and a new fast-paced combat system that combines strategy, action, and a unique combo system that will test your ability to think and react.

    The game takes place in the distant past, in a world where Ragnarok – the End Times – looms large upon the realms.

    With the last of his strength, the All-Father creates an emissary of redemption – a lone Valkyrie who can become the salvation of this doomed world. As this brave warrior descends into the ruined land, she encounters many challenges… and uncovers the hidden truth behind its impending destruction. 

    What will she think of this irrational world… and what end will she choose for it?

    The gameplay of Valkyrie Elysium

    Valkyrie Elysium also incorporates elements of the Valkyrie series’ classic gameplay, such as the Einherjar – recruitable warriors who will join the hero and fight at her side when summoned. It’s a beautiful game, too, with incredible art design that captures the spirit of the series in an exciting, modern way. On PS5, it’s also running in 4K and 60 FPS, making for an adventure that looks and feels beautifully crisp.

    And, of course, we must mention the music. Series composer Motoi Sakuraba returns and contributes to the game’s stunning score. RPGs are always better when they have a strong soundtrack, and this one is going to be… well, literally music to your ears. 

    Launching later this year

    Valkyrie Elysium releases for PS5 and PS4 in 2022. We’ll have more information to share later on the triumphant return of the Valkyrie this year, so watch out for that!
