[QUOTE=VanquishUK;115497396]How does this work, though. Are all the games on a single disk? Or will you need to install four disks and run them all from one.[/QUOTE]

Single disk

Bsigg12 06-09-2014 07:50 PM

[QUOTE=JayEH;115496748]I don't get why they're doing MP for each game. The user base will be split (and no one will play Halo 4).[/QUOTE]

Enters master team slayer playlist, map selected is Haven from Halo 4, game launches into Halo 4.

Sure there will probably be filters to avoid Halo 4 maps but if you just go into a master playlist, you could play any of the 4 games.

stonebeard 06-09-2014 07:50 PM

Holy shit 60 dollars for all that content??! 1080p/60fps?! Ridley scott directed series included?! 60 dollars?! halo 2 multiplayer?!

Damn 343.

Four DVDs can easily fit on a single Blu-ray.

Yes, all on a single disc in a unified UI.

Seriously? They will never get rid of armour abilities so you might as well just accept them.

To be honest I've found them to be a great addition from the start.

Halo 2 06-09-2014 07:51 PM

I am so pumped to play this with y'all!

[QUOTE=Collingwood;115492365]Halo 4 will look fucking gorgeous at 1080/60.

Dat second level, hhhnnnnngggggggg.

Over 100 multiplayer maps using Halo 2's MP engine? Good lord. Battle Creek BRING THAT SHIT ON[/QUOTE]

They aren't using halo 2s engine. Each mp is remade.

How about we break the cycle?

[QUOTE=GavinGT;115496715]I think you're jumping to conclusions. Maybe everyone has these new "Spartan abilities" at all times.[/QUOTE]

It doesn't matter who has what, the very existence of sprint or jetpack breaks the game.

And the trailer quite clearly stated "new spartan abilities" and showed sprinting, jetpacking and a possible cover mechanic. Disgusting.

I'm sorry but you are a small minority in the overall playerbase which is quite clearly evident in the player retention of Halo 4 compared to Halo 3.

Liquid-Swords 06-09-2014 07:52 PM

I would pay $120 if Sony would do the same thing with the SOCOM series. At one time Socom was Sony's flagship multiplayer franchise, much like Halo 2 was for Microsoft. So disappointing they abandoned Socom.

GavinGT 06-09-2014 07:52 PM

[QUOTE=Winterfang;115495776]What's to be skeptical about? I'm trying to think of something that's missing but I can only think is Kinect features.[/QUOTE]

I want to see playlists. Are there rankings? Will the population of players be spread too thin over 4 games making it hard to find games? Thats my biggest worry, I think there will be some Halo 1-3 fans playing but I doubt the cod kids get all excited for Halo 2. It's me being negative really. I like the idea of this collection but my experience with Halo 2 was it was the biggest / best / most popular thing ever and I'm worried I will load this up and have it be find a custom game with 800 people online.

"What you can expect, however – and this is huge news for fellow old-school Xbox gamers – is that Combat Evolved’s multiplayer will be playable, online, in its original form. No more Halo: Reach map packs or excuses about CE multiplayer not “feeling” right online because it never had net code to begin with (let’s leave Gearbox’s Halo PC port out of this).

We quite literally know nothing besides they have new abilities. We have no idea what that means. Until we learn about the gameplay on the basic level, it's a bit early to be taking to the streets.

xBladeM6x 06-09-2014 07:53 PM

For some reason, this makes me think they're killing of Chief in Halo 5.

halo 3 graphically was really damn good--all of its issues were almost completely resolution based--when you throw 60fps on top of it then it wouldn't shock me if it looked on par with H2A and H4

GoofsterStud 06-09-2014 07:53 PM

Halo 1-4 is not remastered. Only Halo 2 is remastered. Halo 1, 3, and 4 use the original engines. They just run 1080p. Which is still a big upgrade in my book.

Armor abilities killed halo and broke it. That is one of the main reasons people have wanted the old school MP.

I can't believe I'll be buying an XB1 and paying for gold again. Holy hell, I'll be able to play two flag on The Pit and one flag on High Ground.

dancrane212 06-09-2014 07:54 PM

Grabbing this for sure, $60 is worth it just to go through Halo 3 again.

I was really surprised how much they are putting in that $60 box. I really thought you were just going to get the online from Halo 2 and that was it.

Halo 1 is remastered. They are just porting the 360 Anniversary edition over.

[QUOTE=VisceralBowl;115469898]360? That is odd.

Well it is running 1080/60 on Xbone, which is a feat considering the resolution/framerate of fps games so far.

No. Fuck that.

Armor abilities were bad in H3, awful in reach and downright trash in H4

If H5 comes with AA, i likely wont play for more than a few matches... and the game won't be taken seriously by anyone.

Finally, we get good Halo again.

None of this Halo 4/5 bullshit.
