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.

    MotoGP 22 Delivers the Best Two-wheel Racing Experience


    • Become a MotoGP rider and build your career starting from scratch and winning the title of the premiere class.
    • Live the thrill of Nine – Season 2009, the new game mode that brings you inside the story of the 2009 season through 39 different challenges and more than one hour of movies.
    • MotoGP22 is available today on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

    MotoGP 22 is Milestone’s 10th game in a row dedicated to the most famous motorbikes championship in the world. Somebody could think after all these years it’s hard for me to come out with something new to put in the game… but the truth is MotoGP is a world full of stories to tell, some from the present, some from the past. And the main dish of MotoGP 22 is exactly one of these stories, thanks to the new game mode Nine – Season 2009.

    Nine, as the name suggests, is a historical mode based on the 2009 MotoGP season. But Nine is also the apex of travel I began three years ago when I first start speaking of this game mode with Michele Caletti, my executive producer and one of the greatest MotoGP fans I know. It’s not the first time a game proposes a historical mode, but usually, all you’ve got it’s a selection of 10 famous riders of the past that race together without real meaning. With Nine we wanted to create something more complete, giving the players all the contents of that specific racing season… riders, bikes, circuits: everything is available as it was in 2009. And most of all, we wanted to tell a story. And that’s what Nine is about, telling a story, thanks to a lot of different challenges connected through almost one hour of different movies.

    So, why 2009? Because it’s the story of the ninth and last world title of Valentino Rossi in MotoGP, and after his retirement, we wanted to celebrate his career somehow. Second, because that year the grid was full of riders capable of bringing the competition to a level never seen before. Rossi, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Stoner: all these riders were able to enter the circuit and become poetry in motion.

    We had great protagonists, and we had a great story to tell, but at that point, we need someone capable to tell such an intense story… and that’s when we come out with the idea of contacting Mark Neale. Mr. Neale is a film director that in the past worked on severed acclaimed MotoGP documentaries such as “Faster,” “Fastest,” and “Hitting the Apex,” and it seemed to be just perfect for the job. I just hope people will enjoy playing Nine as we enjoyed creating it!

    As I mentioned before, MotoGP 22 is not only about the past, but also about the present. The game offers all the official contents of the 2022 season, and it’s covered by that passion for details that have always distinguished Milestone people. So don’t be surprised to see the Ride Height Device installed on the MotoGP bikes (we worked a lot to make it fit the handling model!), new starting grid cut scenes, or new pits. Year after year, piece after piece, what we try to do is to create the more realistic MotoGP game ever.

    This year we didn’t forget about newcomers and those not so keen on hard simulation. MotoGP has many rules and sometimes can be difficult to understand, so we worked to create specific tutorials that explain these concepts through quick challenges. And once you have digested them and you feel ready for some adrenaline, you can try the new MotoGP Academy. All the tracks of the championship, split into sectors, analyzed and described by our racing specialist: you will find all the secrets you need to know to choose the perfect trajectory and lower your lap times. Don’t tell anybody, but I use it too.

    Finally, we didn’t forget to prepare something special also for those who like to share some fun on the sofa. This year MotoGP proposes a split-screen mode, perfect to challenge your friends on your favorite circuits. And if what you need is competition, there are also online modes waiting for you, not to mention the MotoGP eSport Champion, who this year returns with his sixth edition. Well, here the level of competition is a little too high for standard players, but hey, it’s always fun to watch a race between pro players on TV!

    This is just a taste of what MotoGP 22 has to offer… with its managerial career mode, advanced graphic editors, and all the new features I mentioned before, I’m sure that everyone will find their way to enjoy the game. Well, I’m playing the game and I like it, I hope you are too! MotoGP 22 is available now on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. See you on the track… if you’re fast enough!
