Halo Infinite Confirmed For Xbox Series X’s July 20/20 Showcase

0

Following Microsoft's surprise announcement that Halo Infinite will be in the July Xbox 20/20 showcase, developer 343 Industries has officially confirmed that the Xbox Series X launch title will be ready in time to show off at the company's online E3 replacement event. Needless to say, Halo fans' hype has gone through the roof at the confirmation, and the long wait until July's virtual presentation has just gotten (figuratively) longer.

It's genuinely impressive that 343 has been able to play its cards so close to its chest for this long, having revealed Halo Infinite all the way back at E3 2019. Aside from a few small toy-related leaks that have become tradition for the franchise at this point, such as the potential reveal of old enemies and new weapons by Mega Construx, the Halo steward's ship has remained surprisingly watertight. Because of this, there's still a massive amount unheard and - most importantly - unseen from the upcoming entry, including its allegedly revolutionary SlipSpace Engine.

The latest Halo Infinite confirmation was cheekily pinned to the bottom of one of 343's long Halo Waypoint community updates. Telling players to "get ready," community manager John "Unyshek" Junyszek shared that the studio is"extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July." He wryly states that players already "may have seen people talking about this lightly before" in what could be a light dig at Microsoft, which may have taken some of the wind out of the Halo Infinite team's sails by tying the initial announcement to the underwhelming May Xbox 20/20 showcase.

This official developer confirmation of what publisher Microsoft has already promised unfortunately doesn't mention anything about gameplay, but it seems like a safe bet at this point that prospective players will at last get at least a small peak at how Halo Infinite will actually play. After all, July is only a handful of months out from the Xbox Series X's launch date, and it would take a major delay from the likes of COVID-19 to push the flagship title out of the next-gen's console launch slot, over which Microsoft nor 343 have thus far not expressed any foreboding concerns.

At the very least, fans can expect to get a better look at the classic Halo-inspired redesign of Master Chief in action, as well as the iconic sci-fi landscapes that will serve as the upcoming game's battlefields. Microsoft's and 343's redundant announcements may not be the exciting bombast that would-be Xbox Series X owners are preparing for, but in a tumultuous time for the games industry, redundancy is a good thing in cases like Halo Infinite's.

90 Day Fiance's Jesse Meester is looking for love again with a new lady, Bianca Rose. In the latest spin-off of the series, 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, viewers were quickly introduced to Jesse’s new girlfriend.

With a new philosophy on love, Jesse appeared on 90 Day Fiance with his new girlfriend. The 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days alum had been dating Darcey Silva through seasons 1 and 2, but they eventually broke up. In an instance of bad news for him and his ex's fans, Jesse revealed that he came back to New York City for a business concern, but some of his friends arranged a date for him. Aside from Jesse's time on the show, the Amsterdam native and personal trainer also owns a custom jewelry store.

Jesse, 26, said in his confessional, “I am now back in New York City. I’m here for meetings, [to] see my friends and tonight I have a blind date, which I’m really looking forward to." He added, “My friends set it up. I’ve never done it before. In that regard, I’m a virgin.” He said that he had virtually no idea what to expect from his date, and he received “very little information” about her from his friends. “But I’m really looking forward to meeting her,” the star added.

The blind date was none other than Bianca Rose. The 33-year-old was born in Israel but has been living in NYC for the past 11 years. In her confessional, the teacher said, "I am searching of love. I want to settle down now." She also talked about how dating in the city has been terrible and she has been repeatedly disappointed. She now wants someone who loves her purely and she is ready for that kind of relationship. Jesse was so happy on his first date that was already planning for their second date. After spending some time together, Jesse and Bianca realized that they have a lot of things in common and are ready to build a bond.

Jesse confessed in front of cameras that he is completely taken by Bianca. She is gorgeous, honest, and very open. She is authentic and pure. Immediately after that, Jesse received many negative reviews from fans, as they want to see Jesse with his ex Darcy, but he is going to appear with Bianca. The fitness trainer and social media sensation, Jesse, lost much of his fan following after Bianca's appearance.

Wolverine & Captain America Fought in WWII Together | Screen Rant

0

Wolverine has lived a long life, and fought many battles. That fact has led many fans to wonder about his role in World War II, and whether or not he crossed paths with Marvel's wartime hero. And the answer is simple: yes, Wolverine met and fought beside Captain America during WWII.

The conflict is obviously Steve Rogers' domain in Marvel history, fighting many adventures, both domestic and overseas, to combat the Nazis and their subdivision Hydra. One such mission was showcased in Uncanny X-Men #268, where Captain America teamed up with a Russian Agent, Ivan Petrovich, to rescue a young girl kidnapped under Ivan's watchful eye. However, Cap. and Ivan encounter trouble early on in the case when they come up against the Hand, an elite group of Ninja who never leave behind a body. When the odds seem stacked against the two, they receive help from an unexpected ally by the name of Logan.

As an enemy of the Hand, Wolverine decides to team up with the two other heroes to continue his fight against the group. But the crossover doesn't stop there: the heroes eventually learn the young girl in question is actually Natasha Romanova, the future Black Widow, and she was abducted on behalf of the Hand because her skills and strength were unmatched at a young age, making her an ideal warrior.

During the rescue, Wolverine is shot and presumed dead by Captain America and Ivan, having used his body to shield Natasha. However, thanks to Wolverine's healing factor, he manages to survive the attack and subsequently fend off both Hydra and the Hand. Cap I understandably impressed with Wolverine's skills and offers a partnership, which Wolverine politely declines, citing his disinterest in "a sidekick."

Many team-ups between heroes often showcase a contrast between heroes personalities, and with two characters like Wolverine and Captain America (one savage and the other noble) it was interesting to see the two collide. However, fight scenes notwithstanding, Wolverine demonstrated more similar characteristics to Cap than one might think. He jumped into a fight to save strangers, he protected a small child he had no obligation to save, and chose to help with a mission that he had no business being involved in. Wolverine went above and beyond simply stopping his own foes in this situation, something that Steve Rogers himself would do. The added context of having occurred during WWII was a nice touch to illustrate how both characters have a long history in the universe, and provides a unique team-up that only these two heroes could participate in.

Recent comics have even shown how Captain America and the super soldier formula influenced programs like Weapon X, further tying the two characters together. While this team-up between Cap and Wolverine may have been their first, it was far from their last. The two heroes have since teamed-up multiple times in the present day, and have solid respect for each other.  Captain America and Wolverine have served on the Avengers together, both the New Avengers as well as the main Avengers team. Wolverine was quick to side with Cap against Tony Stark and his morally dubious agenda during the superhero Civil War, and even served alongside the New Avengers in the aftermath.

It's interesting to think how different the Marvel Universe would have been had Wolverine taken Cap. up on his offer to be his partner in WWII, but for now we can enjoy their present day team-ups just as much as their first team-up.
