    Podtacular 747: How Nostalgia Hurts A Franchise (feat. SacredIconHalo)

    Podtacular 747: How Nostalgia Hurts A Franchise (feat. SacredIconHalo)

    There’s something that hooks us into a franchise and with one such as Halo, there’s many different facets of the game that get fans to dedicate hours to playing the game or investing time in other areas like the lore. While our nostalgia for a franchise can keep us coming back to it time and time again, it can also turn against us as our innate desire to resist change kicks in and any alteration can come across as encroaching on our experiences. In this episode, we discuss how nostalgia hurts a franchise in this two-part series in collaboration with SacredIconHalo. We are pleased to have their hosts Bryansbane and Jovialjoshy on to share their thoughts and contribute to the discussion. Over on there podcast, you’ll find a discussion on how nostalgia can help a franchise, where our very own Dust Storm joins SacredIconHalo for their latest episode.

    Podtacular 745: The Chuck and Craig Show

    Podtacular 745: The Chuck and Craig Show

    The dust has settled on the influx of Halo news from the last week and there’s so many new tidbits of info that came out after the campaign demo, like confirmed split-screen, co-op up to 4 players, and even after the podcast was done, multiplayer was confirmed to be free-to-play! Of course, the community has it’s fair share of complaints and concerns, some more reasonable than others. We discuss the latest community concerns and 343 responses to the overwhelming questions and criticisms. We highly recommend everyone head over to Halo Waypoint and read up on the Infinite Inquiries blog post. Also, joining the repertoire of DJ’s ever growing list of characters, we are happy to have Craig and the aptly-named Chuck (the grunt launched by the brute) as guests on the show.

    Podtacular 744: Halo Infinite Campaign Demo Reveal Discussion

    The Xbox Games Showcase featured the latest information regarding Halo Infinite including the marketing teaser Become – Step Inside, a campaign demo and a campaign trailer. With the campaign demo, there is a lot to break down including new game play mechanics, weapons, Banished War Chief Escherum, new lore mentions, and an open world concept. Of course, everything we see is subject to change, but it gives us a pretty good idea of what we’ll see come November. It’s awesome to finally start seeing glimpses of what the next Master Chief story will entail.

An Oldie and Still Goodie

This was the first Halo Podcast I listened to, starting back in 2011 leading up to Halo 4. I've dipped in and out of listening throughout the years through no fault of the podcast itself, (mainly due to 343's stewardship of the video-game franchise but that's a separate issue), and the rapport Dust Storm and GodzillaT have never missed a beat. Covering everything Halo-related, it's awesome to hear about the updates I want to know about in a more distilled, less self-congratulatory manner than the 343 Community Updates, as well as learn about community/fan projects I know nothing about or Forge updates which I am equally as ignorant. Thanks for the great pod throughout the years and keep up the awesome work!
