    ya! I was surprised EVERYTHING from halo 4 was unlocked but then slightly disappointed I wasn't able to mix and match. ah well, still neat.

    Can you guys explain that a little?

    It sounds like I'd have to make a customized for each halo game? With individual shoulders, etc from that game (eg: a hayabusa shoulders only for Halo 3)? Or... do I have to wear the entire hayabusa or the entire Recon set, etc?

    You have to wear the whole set. It's especially silly when Halo 3 doesn't even have full sets for a lot of the armors. The DLC armors for Halo 4 are also missing. Hopefully 343i sorts it all out in an update sometime.

    It was mostly the same armor with new striping/schemes, though there were about 4 new ones. 1 "inspired" by ODST uniforms, another by the Mark V, and two uniques that were taken from American football and one that's pretty much all Forerunner tech.

    I do miss my mish-mash of all the different specialization I acquired though. Pioneer emblem, operator helm, wet work chest, pathfinder visor, etc...

    So it sounds like online has a bunch of problems?

    I never played the Halo series before Halo 3, so I figured this collection would finally let me start the story proper from 1 to 4.

    So, just stick to the campaigns while they sort things out?

    I made it through the infamous second hangar on Cairo Station without a single death. It didn't seem nearly as hard this time around.

    On the other hand, what monster put these jackal snipers in Outskirts? Sniper alley only took me a handful of deaths, but it's such a long sequence to play through without a checkpoint. So maddening!

    ohh god I have ptsd from that. actually the part I hated most were the stupid buggers that show up halfway through its infuriating on legendary. also it just me or are they a lot more liberal with some of the ranks for the covenant? I hardly ever saw ultras in halo 2 unless I played legendary. now you see them in heroic.

    anybody having an issue with Impulse triggers? I feel them very strongly in Halo 4 and they are great, not getting them in Halo 2 anniversary?

    Update: No impulse triggers in Halo 2 and Halo CE Anniversary... weird. they are there in Halo 3 and 4.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    This list is somewhat more detailed and ranked by severity.

    And this is 343's official list and update roll out. Apparently they have a patch ready that was supposed to go up at 5pm POST but Live issues are preventing them from applying it.

    I wanted to do some legendary solo playthroughs before even touching the multiplayer, so luckily I've been mostly unaffected by the game's numerous issues. I finished up Regret so I'm halfway through Halo 2's missions.

    While I've played a ton of H1 over the years, I don't know if I've even played H2 since Halo 3 came out. Thank goodness for the fresh coat of paint, because otherwise it's just as disappointing as I remembered! It's hard to describe, but the game feels weird in a way that no other Halo game has felt before or since.

    In my opinion you can just outright feel that the game simply ran out of time to be finished. It didn't get the polish pass.

    I got this game for XboxOne. Physical copy. I started installing it at 7:40am. It is 10:40am now, it's about 80% complete. Wow. I have never seen anything like this.

    If your box is online, it tries to install and patch at the same time because it is eager for you to be able to play right away... but is actually not helping you do that.

    Protip: Do not rely on the "Save" portion of the Save/Quit menu option.

    The only thing worse than fighting all of those brutes at the beginning of Gravemind is fighting all of those brutes twice.

    Save/Quit? Wth. You either finish the fight in one sitting or you don't finish the fight at all!

    I'm one of those wimps who insists on playing a singleplayer game experience first (unless it's shit, like in Battlefield I suppose) before tackling multiplayer, so I really just wanted one match on launch day so I could say did--basic H2 team slayer, which I got after a bit of waiting after the installation finally completed.

    I've gotten 2 other MM games since then--but I've been busy, and am just getting through Truth & Reconciliation in Halo first, so I'm honestly pretty satisfied (though MM does definitely need to be fixed). The matchmmaking problems have effected me personally very little, so I'm very happy with my pre-order.

    On the other hand, I'm less pleased finding how much I suck at H2 multiplayer.

    There is no news regarding the PC release of the Master Chief Collection other than there presently are no plans to put the Master Chief Collection on the PC.

    Even if they had plans to port the Master Chief Collection on the PC, why would they risk undermining their sales so people can hold out until then, instead of adopting now? o_O

    There is that line of "Hah, Xbox exclusives, more like Windows exclusives, L-O-L," that is relevant at times, but I really doubt we're going to see this, or any other Halo FPSs, on PC. Spartan Ops literally started out as a touch screen game, and is actually really fun as a $7 touchscreen mini-game, so naturally it came to PC at a time when Windows 8 machines adopted touch-screens almost universally.

    Likewise, I wouldn't count on Sunset Overdrive appearing on Steam either. In the cases of Ryse or Dead Rising 3, I'm not the least surprise they went to PC--just look who developed either games. Crytek is Crytek, and Capcom can't port things to PC fast enough as far as they're concerned.

    If I'm revealed to be wrong on this in the future, feel free to dredge this post back up and remind me.

    343 Industries says that it has "identified the primary... issue" behind Halo: The Master Chief's Collection broken matchmaking, and that it is "working 24/7 to isolate" and fix the bug.

    "Over the past 48 hours, we believe we have identified the primary matchmaking issue, and are working on a solution right now," executive producer Dan Ayoub wrote on Halo Waypoint. "In the meantime, we'll be rolling out additional tweaks over the next days to further improve the experience while we ready this solution. We are monitoring the data and working on tweaks that should continue to improve your matchmaking experience while we prep."

    My god. What a horrible statement. Does 343 have PR?
