Data Drop 97: Into the Sunset

It’s not good-bye, it’s so long…for now.


Data Drop 96: MCC Relaunch!

This week I had to drag myself and my multiple old man issues into the caster chair for the podcast. The Master Chief Collection Relaunched this past week to mixed reviews. From the 8/27 73GB patch to the release to everyone on GamePass on 9/1, we’ll talk about all the changes that were made. I also put some people to task on their need for patience and understanding into the scope of this ONGOING PROCESS to fix this massive endeavor. We also take a look at some of the changes to Halo 5’s...

Data Drop 94: Are Button Combos Cheating

Very very very slow week of news. But there was quite the debate on Twitter about button combo glitches in Halo. Are they cheating or are they not? I weigh in on what I think. That’s the majority of the discussion in what I believe to be the shortest podcast to date! Don’t forget the Go Fight Covenant Challenge and you can sign up on the Bad At Halo Show discord. Twitter @BadHaloShow & @TazzmanLive Discord:...


Data Drop 93: Where Have All The Spartans Gone?

After a week off, I’m back in the hot seat talking all sorts of different Halo goings on! Including the TeaBag Tazzman Tournament, announcement of hte next tournament, MS Store tournaments now a year old, and why I don’t care about the HCS anymore. The Halo TV show news has split the community…again. Yet another new Halo novel was announced, and we have a LOT of homework to complete before Halo Infinite. The MCC Insider program opened up to EVERYBODY…and they’re having population...


Data Drop 92: Is That A Tumbleweed?

Not a lot going on in the world of Halo news. Thankfully I still have the Halo Legendary Loot Crate review that I missed from last week to hold us over.

Also take a look at some of the playlist shake ups this past week and why they aren’t good, but were needed. Somehow we get a regular length show out of that Follow on: Twitter: @BadHaloShow &...
