MS Clippy is heading to Halo Infinite Season 2

MS Clippy is heading to Halo Infinite Season 2. Microsoft is quite famous for its windows operating system, but its second-largest and most successful software happens to be the office, especial Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Built to take down WordStar and its fellows, MS office brought the concept of WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) to the masses, letting the mouse do most of the talking.

However, that is “quite ease-of-use” also introduced some complexity, which brought about the birth of the notorious Clippy assistant that Seems to be the butt of a lot of jokes to this day. Strangely, Clippy would be returning, thanks to a passive and silent way.

Clippy came a bit earlier and predated today’s personal smart assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. The helper suggested the next actions that one should take in the office software based on what they were typing or doing, with the hope of saving them from having to navigate through a sea of menus and options. Concerning how bloated Microsoft office was getting at the time, the assistance was arguably necessary.

In practice, however, Clippy turned out to be far more annoying – it became straight-up disruptive. The digital paperclip would just pop up while you are in the middle of something, and just spoil the concentration flow. More importantly, it failed to be smart, suggesting activities that you were already engaged in and making you go through hoops to accomplish tasks that would have otherwise involved only some clicks. It did not hit us as a surprise that Clippy was quite ridiculed out of existence, but it remains a sort of pop culture figure and meme to this very day.

Hello, Halo Clippy Clipster

It seems as if April fools came a bit late for “Halo Infinite” and developer 343 industries. The second season of the game was released on May 3, 2022, bringing a bunch of new content, among other things. The Xbox Senior product manager James shields called attention to one particularly notable addition on Twitter: Clippy. The iconic paperclip is offered both as a nameplate and a legendary gun charm. Even though Xbox probably has rights to the name, the tongue-in-cheek incarnation of Clippy is called “Clipster” in the game instead.

Polygon reports that these two cosmetics items are not part of the battle Pass, and it remains unclear how long the players would be required to wait in other to unlock them. The fun Easter egg aside, “Halo Infinite” Season 2 was launched with two new maps and new multiplayer modes. Also, it comes with that aforementioned battle pass that features unlockable treats. Another cosmetic item would be a tea bag weapon charm, which would probably call to mind a different kind of “teabag” that only gamers know about.
