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.

    Doctor Strange 2 Writer Teases a ‘Very Sam Raimi’ MCU Sequel

    Ahead of Loki’s highly-anticipated premiere on Disney+, showrunner Michael Waldron has opened up about the process of rewriting Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through the pandemic. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Waldron confirmed that following Scott Derrickson’s exit, he and director Sam Raimi had to start the sequel “from scratch.”“I knew I wanted to stay in the family,” Waldron said being enlisted onto the Doctor Strange sequel, while Loki was about to start shooting. “I felt like Loki was in a great place and I was eager for what the next challenge would be.”He continued, “How do we just make a movie in two months? [He recalls thinking]. But COVID quickly descended upon us. We’re not shooting now until November. So I got to spend my 2020 on Zooms with Sam Raimi. Not too bad.”Waldron went on to share that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was inspired by a number of films including Indiana Jones, who he thinks is somewhat similar to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange. He also continued to tease that the sequel is going to be something that fans haven’t seen before in the MCU, describing it as “very Sam Raimi,” and an “incredibly visually thrilling,” film.“He’s Indiana Jones in a cloak to me,” He said. “He’s a hero who can take a punch. That’s what made those Harrison Ford heroes so great. Those guys get their asses kicked. Look at Stephen Strange in the first movie. He’s really getting beat up but he’s very capable and everything. I can tell you that it’s a ride…very Sam Raimi. The film is incredibly visually thrilling. John Mathieson, our D.P., who shot Gladiator and Logan—I think the look of it is going to be unlike anything you’ve seen in the MCU before.”RELATED: Kevin Feige Teases Multiple Versions of Loki in the Disney+ SeriesDescribed as the first MCU horror film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as he reprises his role as Dr. Stephen Strange.
