I was under the same impression. I tried watching that Twitch stream just a little bit ago... But god, Twitch is buggy as hell for me.

The previous in-game cutscenes are being replaced by pre-rendered cutscenes. That's what this is from.

I want to get this digitally but lately MS has been giving credit out if you preorder it from their store, so we'll see.

Just think of it this way: 343 ropes back around to previous titles. We'll probably get an entirely new Halo game in the same vein as ODST (with the original remastered) sometime in the next 3-4 years I imagine!

Oh man, I can't wait to see the vistas on Regret with the new graphics. Especially how they handle the water portions.

Halo 2 Campaign wasn't without its glaring flaws, but seeing it with stunning visuals (without that ugly burn on the 360 to boot) should at least make dying by those jackal snipers as beautiful as it is frustrating.

I'm still blow away by the fact that I'm going to be able to play Halo CE online against other people on the original engine. I've waited over a decade for this.

Theres no way that someone who even remotely considers themselves a fan of Halo could pass on this collection. This is the benchmark for all videogame remasters.

We've heard conflicting things. They've said some PC maps are included. They've said elsewhere they are not. And they've said all PC maps are included.

A tweet said that 93 maps are included.

I'm mostly excited for the missions "Gravemind" and "High Charity".

Running through High Charity while the Covenant tears itself apart... the Flood gains ground... Truth and the Gravemind war with impressive voice acting and dialogue.... very nice vistas...

Very melancholy and, especially because those missions had some of the best tracks in the series. Easily the best part of any Halo campaign, in my humble opinion.



Never forget.

Is there any chance we'll get multiplayer theater for Halo 1 and 2?

Has there been any word on clans from Halo 2?

Does Halo 1 multiplayer include the fuel rod cannon and flamethrower?

Will Halo 1 at 60fps still have the 30fps hand animations?

Yea I've been hearing mixed things on the maps, but if Frankie can clear it up then he ultimately has the final say.

In general I'm just really excited to see the graphical updates. The Spectre, the Forerunner Enforcers, Tartarus, Honor Guards, Councilors. Halo 2 was an incredibly diverse game when it came to graphics and content, and introduced a lot of environments, weapons, and characters that were never seen again. So finally being able to see all that content in HD will be very satisfying.

I, as a Covie-lore geek, am really interested in seeing their graphical decisions (such as Elite and Brute armor) since Covenant armor, weapon, and vehicle designs have legitimate, canonical impact.
