I felt the same, but I sort of figured this was to be expected because season 1 is free. The cutscenes you watch in the SPOPS menu are cool to watch though.

I'm still looking forward to the conclusion, even though someone spoiled the storyline for me. It's a nice way to continue the Halo 4 storyline without slapping on a reskin of Master Chief in cutscenes and gameplay, then proceeding to put all the content in a box and label it Halo 5.

Yeah a bit of a let down that, I was enjoying building my wheelman commendations up on e1c1 with that guass hog. Hope we get more vehicle ones next episode, or they rotate episodes again in the future.

I liked e2, was more of a challenge on solo legendary (which I plan to do for my own entertainment) than the first season. I got that save at least one marine achievement solo so guess its not going to prove much problem for teams.

Theres a neat RvB easter egg this time in e2c5, I didn't know about it and a guy in my group set it off, at first I thought he was playing RvB over his mic. I'm guessing all chapter 5's have easter eggs.

This isn't accurate. The 1.5 GB download is for ALL Episodes (10) of Season 1. Each week, a new Episode is unlocked; you don't have to download it since you, technically, already have them downloaded.

If they decide to do a Season 2, then that would require another download, but, for now, you won't need any additional space since all 10 episodes are included in that initial 1.5 GB download.

What the HELL is that thing? lol. Im expecting the last episode to be some bombshell like "hey Cortana's alive" or The Flood appearing.

Anyone else feel the connection to all this digital to flesh technology and think maybe it could have (was) used in reverse for Cortana? That's what Im hoping at least.

You know, now that you mention it, her "I've waited so long to do that" quote at the end of the game as she touches chief's armor (still don't know what sort of mystical powers she evoked in that plot device) does corroborate your theory... If so, I expect a total mimicry of ME3: make the AI into a physical (playable?) character.

I can't be the only one that thinks it's wrong that you earn more XP in a single round of Spartan Ops than in War Games, right?

I have a couple questions about XP and Spartan Ops.

1. Does difficulty effect how much XP you get?

2. Do you get just as much XP from doing older episodes with a group in a custom party as you do from matchmaking on the current episode?

Looking for some people to go through Episode 1. Preferably on Legendary. If you know where the achievements are that would be great, but whatever. I'm on now so message me.

1) not that I've noticed.
2) matchmaking (find a game) gives you twice what you would get as play a chapter

I was getting 2.2k on e1c2 on my own (play a chapter) and 4.5 under find a game.

It doesn't bother me much either way I make more than I do than I do in war games. And you can target what commendations you go for. I play chapters to take out more enemies, like hunter achievement this week. And if xp is what I'm after and I have a dew or Doritos 2x, I play the best scoring current episode chapter. Making just shy of 6k w/o and 11.5k w/ 2x in "find a game".

Do you think we will be able to find matchmaking games on all Episodes after they are all released?

I wouldn't bet on it, but I suppose it's possible. I'd personally hate to only have Episode 10 for matchmaking until/unless they release a season 2. And since any season 2 of Spartan Ops is likely to be paid DLC they should leave season 1 matchmaking available. Cause not everyone will buy it.

Very interesting. I really like how they have incorporated this into Halo. I'm not very good at War Games and MP; and Spartan Ops, and these episodes really suck me into long term play. I can actually keep up with my son, because of them. Not to mention it was the story that has kept me.

I can't wait to see where it is going.

Agreed. I don't typically get into MP, so S.O. is a great way to keep interested in the game.

I'm just now starting on S.O. as I wanted to get Solo Leg done in campaign first. I think I need to get in high gear so I can get into the current S.O. episodes. Good stuff so far.

Holy Crap! I've never been so overrun with enemies as in Spartan Ops Episode 3. Chapters 3 and 4 on Valhalla are insane! Nothing like a dozen hunters at a time plus many elites and 4 or 5 banshees at a time.

Just when you think you've cleared the area....two more phantoms come in with a whole new barrage of enemies.

I did Legendary Solo and it kicked my ass! Good thing for the infinite spawns.

Still fun though!

Episode 3 reminds a ton loads about firefight.

Al Qaeda joins the Covenant in Episode 3

I must say I love the Spartan Ops but to have to say a terrorist elite that you have to kill was quite comedic.
