Halo Infinite Campaign Hype

I have been a long time Halo fan since its first release on the OG XBOX. I have played every campaign since on release (except for Halo 5 - Which I don't even remember honestly). So I am pretty excited about the Infinite campaign release. Being 36 now, I doubt ill stay up all night to take a deep dive into it (adult responsibilities 😕), but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like too.  I am excited to see how the openness of Infinite implements into the Halo formula.  I may even review it, maybe... probably not.

Halo Infinite MP is a blast, but it's Battle Pass is @$$!!!

  I have really been enjoying my time with Halo Infinites Multiplayer since its surprise drop to Game Pass.  It still has that Halo feel with upgrades and new features, all stuff you can read elsewhere, and I know this part has been said countless times, but Halo's battle pass, right now, is complete garbage.  Typically, I do not buy the Battle Pass for F2P games, because I just don't see the need and know, personally, that I will never get to that top tier it requires to get everything. But, I love Halo. I enjoy Halo. The few hours I actually spend gaming anymore, I want to spend shooting Spartan's and playing with friends.  So I bought the Battle Pass.  Ugh... Its bad enough that the XP gained right now to level up is worst than that of a snail crawl, but earning items you cant use unless you have a certain gear attached is just dumb. If your going to have a visor color unlock, make it unlockable for all armors.  Also why cant I earn Halo Credits (or whatever its called)

  Its been ages since I have been on here and a totally different life now, so let me dust off these magic fingers and see how this goes! The other day I was looking at my checking account and noticed I had renewed this domain another year. I pondered, should I just let it go? let someone else by the domain and actually do something with it? What exactly do I want this site to be? Maybe you should temper your expectations Shaune! I have tried multiple things with the site. From a deals and freebies, to a giveaway, to a podcast, to, well name it and I have probably tried it. Thumbstick Gamer has always been a playground of sorts for me. But I always manage walking away and it suffers.  The last time I posted here was last August, since then I have been divorced, bought a new place to live and tried to piece my life back together. I didn't post about any of it and kind of went through it all by myself. I lost a job,  quit a job and got a new job since then as well, so really I am a d

It has been absolute ages since a new podcast episode, but myself with plenty of free time and the pandemic keeping us all away from fun, what better time then put a renewed emphasis and vigor on the show and stuffs here? With the XBOX Stream yesterday, there's plenty for us to discuss, rip apart, and breakdown in heavy conversation. New episode soon!
