It’s here!  What do you think?

 

I haven’t played any campaign yet but I’m willing to bet it’s awesome.

 

Unfortunately, I could not get into a MM game last night.  I’m reading that MM is essentially broken at the moment, but assuming it will be functional sooner than later.  Disappointing, for sure.

 

Played 2 v 2 customs for ~ 3 hours last night and played at least one match from every game.

CE – honestly impressed with the netcode.  definitely need to get used to not playing split-screen mulitplayer.

H2 Classic – it’s h2 at 60 fps.  looked and felt great

H2A – It’s pretty, and it feels good, but I’m old and prefer the classic version.  Don’t care for the H4 sounds and announcer.  I love Warlock, but it’s tough to see people on Warlord.  So much GREEN.

H3 – I think H3 is going to be the real gem of the collection.  Only played a single 2 v 2 game on Guardian, but it was awesome.  The netcode has to have been improved because H3 has never felt so good before.  Hopefully it holds up with higher player count games and across longer distances.

H4 – Played a single game on Skyline.  It’s H4, but the X1 makes it look like a next-gen game.  Dat scattershot effects!

 

I’m excited to be playing again and impressed with the collection so far.  I’m eager to see MM fixed soon, but am hoping that Custom Games is going to be my primary home this time around.  Even if H5 turns out to be a game not for me, I’m happy to have a back-up.

Hope everyone is having fun so far.  See you on the battlefield soon!

Halo 2 …..all versions felt the best to me. (I like the Anniv the best…wish I could play it on other maps…. dont know about all of that limitations yet, not what I thought !!)

Followed by Halo CE

Halo 3 the worst… 

 

Did not play Halo4 anything…  It’s above Halo 3 in my eyes !

I was extremely disappointed in how broken this game seems to be at the moment. What, did we take 343 by surprise by wanting to actually search for games and play?

We did have a group of 8 playing customs – mainly on anniversary maps – and it was fun. We did not try any CE maps, but H2 classic and H3 maps were amazing. I was surprised how good the H2 classic maps looked and played.

Oh and no H4. H4 should never be played again…brain-slug-smiley_gif

It is disappointing that so many features are broken or missing, like the ability to change a party leader.  How do you forget that?

Definitely a shame that MM was essentially missing for day one.  It didn’t affect me outside of trying to get a game one time, but it should at least be functional.

The UI is a chore to navigate.  Getting to a basic game mode, campaign/MM/customs, is easy enough but diving further into the menus gets hairy.  The games in MCC are fantastic, it’s getting to them which is the problem.

H2A campaign is straight DOPE!  Yes, there are stutters, judders and frame rate drops (I’m looking at you Metropolis tank over bridge section) with the new shiny coat of paint, but it runs quite well overall.  If you haven’t started yet, you’re in for a treat.  However, I need to run through the first five missions again because the mission achievements weren’t popping.  The only one I have the cheevo for is Oracle (mission 6).

I agree Darth, #nomoreH4

I have not been able to make it into one matchmaking game yet. So stupid. Custom games are not hosted on servers, only matchmaking. I’m sick of laggy peer-hosted lobbies. Servers are one of the reasons I bought a One.

Well played, Microsoft, well played.

Halo 2: Anniversary blows my mind. I have absolutely no complaints. They did everything I asked for when trying to play Halo:CE Anniversary; they stuck to the original artistry so everything looks the same just beefed up graphically, and there doesn’t appear to be any lagz. I haven’t tried playing it co-op, though, just played it when MCC released and minutes later my internet crashed.

But Halo 2: Anniversary is not enough. It’s bullshit that the norm nowadays is to release broke-ass shit. I’m playing Destiny until MCC is fixed.

Last night was the roughest MCC has been for me so far.  I was having trouble getting into a lobby, lobby getting kicked after every game, then trouble getting back into the lobby.  Changing team colors doesn’t always work, and the lobby doesn’t always represent what you’re actually playing or display the correct teams.  Once you get into a game, it’s awesome, but getting there is proving difficult.

Haven’t tried MM since night one.  Seems like some are having more luck than others.

Had my first campaign mishap.  The game froze during the last 5-10 seconds of Delta Halo.  Then my Xbox rebooted itself.  Probably not a good thing.

@CHa0s The p2p connections are actually really good.  CE has a noticeable host advantage, but it’s been that way since forever.  Otherwise, it’s been great connection-wise.

Played a good junk of the H3 campaign.  GLORIOUS!  Based 60 fps.

My Xbox rebooted itself last night also. I thought maybe they were updating or fixing something.
