I keep thinking: what is an old game going to look like in uber-high def? Wouldn’t that be like blowing up a pixelated image too large to appreciate the quality at it’s intended size? I’m having a difficult time imagining that it won’t make seams and flat textures more obvious, that is unless there are details in the coding that we simply just couldn’t see on the original Xbox due to lack of tech on the user side. Anybody hear/know anything about this that could shed some light?

It’s going to look glorious.  Pop in your CEA disc, load up campaign in Classic mode.  It’s beautiful.  It’s better looking than the updated version.   I’m sure MCC is  going to be upscaled properly and have anti-aliasing (getting rid of jaggies) applied to it.

Plus, we’re finally moving up to 60fps from the shitty ass <=30 frames per second (yeah Halo 3, I’m talking about you).

Whether or not they actually achieve these benchmarks, we’ll know closer to November.

 

I’m very excite.  I’d probably buy the game and console if it was just CE multiplayer on Live.

I just realized something… we’re going to get to game with w0rm again! :-)

Ok, well, it’s good to have those reassurances about the visuals, even if I still don’t understand how it could possibly work. But after watching that video in the 2o2p thread that discusses Forge being available in the Halo 2 maps that are redone from the ground up, I can see how it’s possible that my one theory might be true, and that the graphics that are coded into the game are ahead of their time and will show detail that the Xbox and even the 360 were just not capable of displaying. In the vid they go into how they show the artists Halo 4 side by side on the 360 and Xbone and the artists are all like “THAT is how we wanted it to look!” in reference to the Xbone. However, I still haven’t heard anyone come out and say it looks better on the Xbone, so that might just be hype.

I can’t give more science based answers than upscaling, anti-aliasing and 1920×1080 wizardry.  A better explanation may be in the Tabasco.

 

Yukon, what do you think of this collection since you have previously mentioned a preference for not playing the older Halo games?

How do I feel ? I feel greeeaaaatt !

 

I just did not like the “way” the games played now….  trust me, it was not because I did not like “those” older games.

 

I logged 100x more hours playing Halo 2 and 3 than I did or will ever do in Reach or H4…

I just hope it all comes together like I wish it does in my mind…. but I will be buying it and playing it in some capacity come 11-11-14 !!!!!!!!!

Worm is spot-on. I can’t really add much other than to say that each game’s engine will be running depending on the map selected. Meaning, if we are in the MM lobby and vote for The Pit, Halo 3 – then Halo 3’s engine will load and we’ll play the game.

I’m hoping with the power of the XB1 and running on dedicated servers at 60fps, we’ll get to see how Halo was really meant to be played.

343 better be careful though, if they make it too good, we may not be interested in Halo 5… :wacko:

I hope it’s too good. If CE, 2 and 3 play as good as I imagine them… :yes: :yes: :yes:

I’m with Edie… I’m looking forward to MCC more than Destiny.

Have you guys seen this Xbox 360 vs Xbox One Halo 3 side-by-side comparison? I think the Xbox One looks like they just put on a blur filter to take the edges off bored-smiley_gifThe original looks better. Of course we’re viewing it on a video, but still…

Can’t really compare the two when the MCC version of H3 can’t be seen at 60 fps in that vid.

Exactly. And after watching that video you recommended, I’m even more convinced that video really can’t tell us much. Guess we gotta just get back to waiting ;D

I am so anticipating this game… I do not even want to play anything else !!!!

 

My Tuesday 11/11/14 plans….  (I am off all day)

I will be online all day Tuesday….until like 8-9pm pst.

I would really prefer to have a good group of maybe 8-10 players, to play some Stock “private” games on every map we can.

I myself do not really want to do Match Making day 1, nor do I wanna start playing the campaigns…yet.

That is my Day 1 plans/hopes…. we will see what happens.

 

I am out-of-town Wed/Thurs-day, then my NFL team is on Thursday Night Football.

So my next gaming wont be until Friday….  and I still hope to have/host a Friday Night MMHC gaming group. I will play mucho later than usual too…

Then I am open to do whatever Saturday / Saturday Night…and Sunday.
