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.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Gets a New Face For Peter Parker

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Gets a New Face For Peter Parker The graphics aren’t the only thing getting a facelift in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered when it hits Playstation 5 later this year. James Stevenson, Insomniac Games Community Director, revealed via Playstation’s official blog that John Bubniak is no longer the facial model for Peter Parker. Instead, Ben Jordan’s likeness will now appear in the game as Peter. However, Yuri Lowenthal’s vocal performance as Peter remains in the game (via SuperHeroHype). The net effect makes Peter seem much younger in the Remastered Edition. Jordan’s resemblance to MCU Spider-Man Tom Holland is also hard to ignore. You can see for yourself in the clip below. It features an important scene between Peter and his mentor, Otto Octavious. This is also an early glimpse of Otto’s transformation into Doctor Octopus.  Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar issued a statement on Peter’s radically different look in the PS5 remastered update, which you can view below (via SuperHeroHype): A few words from me on today’s news… pic.twitter.com/PpdWVuw4Mm — Bryan Intihar (@bryanintihar) September 30, 2020 Additionally, Stevenson spoke about the upgrades for the city in the game. “The team has done the painstaking work of updating the city’s environment to take advantage of the new console. Beyond improved models and materials, one of the biggest things we have brought to the game is ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. We now have true reflections on the windows of buildings, and it looks stunning with our new skies and weather.” RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Gameplay Footage Revealed! Finally, Stevenson unveiled the first of three new costumes in the remastered edition. Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man suit from the Amazing Spider-Man films. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be a digital release included with the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Deluxe Edition. Both games will hit stores on November 12.
