We’re no strangers to Halo 4 glitches, and War Games continues to surprise. See why 2old2play members Aurora Midnight and McDad were confuzzled playing Capture the Flag in Action Sack, in this post-blackscreen mayhem. It seriously took no small amount of time on my part to figure out what the heck!

Halo 5: Guardians Beta Video

Halo 5: Guardians – Midship

 

A video has been released for Halo 5: Guardians, which starts for gamers this December 29th, 2014 as a beta. The beta will be available through Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

According to the video, included in the Halo 5: Guardians beta are seven maps with three game modes, eleven sandbox weapons and seven armor sets with customizations. Like Halo games of old, Spartans will start off on equal ground with “fair starts”, where everyone has the same loadouts.

Gamers will also be able to unlock and keep elements of the game, bringing them into Guardians when it’s released.

Watch the video, and see some of the Halo 5: Guardians beta maps in all their glory.

Damn you 343 for making me get excited about Halo all over again, damn you.

Xbox One Presents Challenges for eSports

 

Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be used for competitive, eSports

Halo: The Master Chief Collection releases November 11th, 2014. In a few measly months, gamers will have the chance to see what Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Halo 3 was meant to look like by the artists who worked hard to create the visuals, since the original Xbox and Xbox 360 were not equipped to fully display the code that was written for them.

The Master Chief Collection will be released on the Xbox One only, and the buzz is getting louder in the diehard Halo community as people remember what it was like to compete in and watch tourneys of truly well-balanced, competitive shooters.

Leagues are being set up across the globe in anticipation, requiring vast amounts of man hours and resources to accomplish, in order to give the people what they have been craving for so many years: The active return of Halo to eSports.

 

Destiny: Xbox 360 vs One, Side by Side Comparison

So I’m playing the Destiny beta, when one of my gaming buddies, Mace Windex, sends a message asking how I like it. Part of my reply includes how I’m not too impressed with the graphics.

The reason why we’re messaging instead of discussing it in a party, is he’s recently moved from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One. Immediately I began receiving messages about how incredible the graphics were on the Xbone. Yes, I was jealous. Not only had I lost one of the few gaming buddies I had playing Battlefield 4, but now he was gaming in lobbies of 32 (holy cow, I still can’t believe it!) – - 32 people in a game, whilst I was still stuck with the measly 16.

But back to Destiny. When I told Mace how I wasn’t happy with the graphics, his reply was that they were “amazing” on the Xbox One. It’s eaten away at me for a couple days, and finally after bitching about the graphics for two days I had to go find a comparison video.

Fred Wood has done a great job showing exactly what the difference is in this side-by-side comparison. I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting there to be this big of a difference. Like Battlefield 4, it’s like a film is lifted off the screen when the video is played on the Xbone. Tons of detail appears that is fuzzy on the Xbox 360 and the contrast is all that I would hope for it to be (one of my biggest gripes was the lack of contrast). Plants and tarps move more naturally, and things have a much more detailed texture.

I can’t help wondering if they’re doing it on purpose. I mean, if I were a company that wanted people to buy my next product, would I put effort into making the old one look as good as it could? No, no I wouldn’t. Well, not if I was a soul-sucking, money grubbing bastard.

Is it worth the cost of the Xbone to have next-gen graphics? Only you can decide, but this vid makes a convincing argument.

Halo 2: Anniversary Trailer Means One Thing

So, the new Halo 2: Anniversary Cinematic Trailer came out today, and I just watched it. A lot of things went through my mind and emotions as the trailer played.

First, I began to reminisce of my journeys through the campaigns, the awe I had at the Halo story and the artistry and the all-immersive experience of it. I remembered thinking, “Why do the cutscenes look soooo bad, when there are CGA movies out that are so badass?”.

As I watched Chief strangling the Prophet in the trailer (hey, you know that’s what you really wanted, too), I realized one thing: I really, REALLY want to own and play the Master Chief Collection!!

I miss the things that made me love the game and franchise, and I could imagine reliving them… better. But will they really be better? And is it worth a whopping $400-$500 (the purchase of the Xbone) to find out?

These are questions I must work out in my own time, especially as I realize that the same drive that makes me want MCC, that collection of games that I truly loved, only makes sense if that $400-$500 goes towards playing the continuation of the series which I most certainly have not.

All that aside, one thing and one thing alone is crystal clear after I watch the trailer. It is a thought I’ve had before, and it comes to mind fresh and screaming as a newborn babe….

THEY HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO BRING BACK SERGEANT JOHNSON!!!

Missed the trailer? Check it out now.

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Landing on a Comet

    In March of 2004 a robotic spacecraft named Rosetta was launched by the European Space Agency to catch up with and land on a comet. It’s set to meet part one of that goal in less than one month. Rosetta is no stranger to exploration. Equipped with a variety of scientific imaging equipment, Rosetta has followed a 12 year flight-plan,…
