Diehards Strat o Cast Ep 2 – Seeing Our Destiny
In episode 2 of Halo Diehards’ Strat o Cast, CHa0s, KogesKoges, BigBadMike and EdieKaye explore gamers’ destiny – – specifically the Destiny on the Xbox One. We launch into first impressions of Destiny, from story mode and Strikes to matchmaking in Crucible, discussing details including whether or not Destiny truly reflects it’s promise to deliver a social game. Switching over to the Xbox One, HD co-hosts share trials and tribulations in new ownership of the next-gen console, and share how it’s standing up to the Xbox 360. Catch it all here in “Seeing our Destiny”
Since recording this episode of Strat o Cast, we’ve learned that you don’t have to go all the way back to the Xbox One dashboard to invite friends to your Destiny Fire Team. You can go to their gamercard from your Roster, and invite them from there. It’s still more steps, takes more time, and is less intuitive than what we’re used to.

Xbox One Presents Challenges for 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.
