MCC working perfectly for me also, but then again I have been fairly lucky and been able to find games for a while even before the patch. Halo 5 beta was great, felt very good to play. So stoked for Halo 5 at the end of the year!

Some fairly stressful moments with Max earlier, but also lightened by headless Keyes and dancing Elites.

Anyway, the achievements for MCC are so horribly done, they're not in any real order and seem to have been dropped in almost randomly. Not to mention some of them are stupidly annoying and require huge amounts of grinding/multiplayer or are basically impossible for non leet players.

Having just been hit up by a targeted ad that actually worked, I'm moved to ask people who may know about Halo Nightfall. Is it any good? By which I mean do the actors get through it without showing signs off "I know it's got Ridley Scott's name on it but why am I here? God why?" on their faces and does it manage to avoid huge lore boo boos?

I ask because I went from being quite excited (was hoping for an equivalent of Halo Legends but live action) to forgetting about it when work went into overdrive a few months ago now. However, since work looks to be calming down I was hoping to get back into the wider world of gaming a bit rather than just snatching hours here and there and Nightfall seemed like a good place to start.

I enjoyed Nightfall and thought it was very good. Definitely worth a watch. 8/10

And there are two new trailers, featuring taglines such as "there are two sides to every story" and "hunt the truth"

Interesting how of the two new trailers the Master Chief one has a load more views.

Hopefully 343 don't gamble too much on Locke being popular.

Excellent. Once I get paid, I'm there.

Wonder why they went pre-Hallowe'en on the release date though? Worried about MP snags, or have they heard about something else coming that they want to get out in front of?

Also, I'm predicting now that the Halo 2 campaign controversy will pale into insignificance to what happens in 5. There will be a marmite moment so sticky that people will be gummed-up for years. I'm talking speechless grinning people in rocking chairs with prematurely white hair, sandwich board-wearing doom merchants and rampant panic buying of plushies.

Probably CoD 15 or whatever releasing early november, isn't AC Victory out early Nov too? First party wise you've got forza, quantum break and exclusive tomb raider to fit in, don't want cannibalisation.

What controversy of halo 2? The absence of an ending? I thought the arbiter was a great addition - it's not Raiden levels of betrayal.
...and if you tell that to the kids of today, they wont believe you!

also probably got battlefront which will be big, liked the videos though, getting me excited. I did think it would launch earlier though so it was going to be the first big game of the end of year rush
