The all thing around the campaign being watched/played through the eyes of Halo 5's Agent Locke is nice but not necessary (except for some fancy unified menu) and I can't help but flag it under "343i likes to show off" rather that "343i has great game ideas"...

How is having 1 game better than 4? Not to mention that Halo 3 is already free, CEA is already "polished" so it's not like that was a lot of work to get in there, and Halo 4 is the newest game and requires the least amount of change.

The question is, why wouldn't they do this as opposed a halo 2 rerelease?

FOV in H2/H3 was a bit limited for my tastes, but still fully playable. Most console shooters could suffer to have a bit higher FOV across the board.

Unfortunately if the game wasn't designed for higher FOVs then it might break things if it is changed.

Edit: Wait, are we complaining about there being too much content in our HD remasters? Seriously?

Says the compilation is desperation...
But a standalone Halo 2 is sufficient...

There you have it folks. One game is better than four!

Destiny?, give me a fucking break. I'd take this package over that game and any other game we know about.

This is this generations equivalent to the Orange Box but no...you'd me content with paying the same amount of cash for just one game?? WHAT?? WHY?!

They're putting the entire MC story on one console on one disc - all with original features intact - for the price of one game. On top of new bells and whistles that were also added, they're using the opportunity to prelude future entries in the franchise and fine tune its mechanics. Damage control? Perhaps, but a very convenient one from both business and relations perspectives. This is also the best time to win back old fans, introduce new ones to "classic" Halo, and move units before the next title. That makes it one of the smartest - and most necessary - instances of fanservice I've seen in the industry, and it may just change the way all HD collections are done.

I'd agree that more time with H2A for more remastered maps would be a good thing, but it hardly undermines the value of the package. In fact, Halo 2 alone would diminish it.

Eh, it's possible they could be trolling, but it's also entirely possible that monome doesn't see the point. To some people, "four old games" doesn't exactly scream "system seller", and I don't fault them for that.

The fact that it's so popular and widely received though is a testament to not only how well the package was presented, but also how influential the games were (and still are) in the first place.

In the long run, this is something that will really matter.

Especially for Halo, this is a pretty big deal. There alway was this huge host advantage in Halo - no one can deny that. And Big Team Battles often were pretty much unplayable due to lag. Having everything based on dedicated servers now is just awesome. Just imagine 8vs8 Halo 1 Blood Gulch action on a dedicated server! OMG!

And now just imagine if they really do a good leveling system/ranking. Holy ... I really can't wait ...

fucking dawt.

And really, I'd love to still be playing H3 if there was any sort of population, but there isn't. Now that this is coming out AND I can use my shiny new console - I might be playing H3 pretty regularly again.

it didn't "make it look like" it. It was two versions running on top of each other. This will have the same. Best of both worlds. Your choice.

He doesn't see the point of easily the best value game package ever put on disk?, 4 of the best FPS campaigns ever, all with improved graphics at 1080p/60fps, the Halo 5 beta, 100 multiplayer maps, multiplayer maps that contain some of the most loved maps ever in FPS history. All for $60.
Even if you hated Halo, you would have to be a fool to not admit what a brilliant package this is.

True. Maybe I was just playing devil's advocate. Really though, the part that confused me the most was the comparison to Destiny. My opinion of that game has picked up considerably lately, but I wouldn't compare it to Halo as far as what each game offers. I do think there are universal [balance] queues in Halo and other similar shooters that the industry should see more of, but they're ultimately two completely different experiences and packages.

Yeah this is what's going to get me to buy an Xbox One. The value is incredible and the nostalgia factor is off the charts. Regardless of whether or not this is a Hail Mary by Microsoft I'm sold. They put you and I the gamer ahead of greed and that's something I can get behind.

Seriously? Seriously?

I love Destiny but come the fuck on with that shit. It's not some grand conspiracy. In this case they're doing what the fans want which is giving us all 4 games on one console with their multiplayers intact. It hasn't a damn thing to do with Destiny.

It really is. I mean I've had my issues with how you guys handled Halo 4. Don't get me wrong but damn an accusation like he made is just beyond insane. No company in their right mind would go oh this other company who used to make our series is making a new game. Quick throw out a compilation of all their old games to combat that.

So OXM posted that a Microsoft rep told them that all Halo 1 PC maps would be in the Anniversary pack, Infinity included.

But Frankie has previously said otherwise.

Update - I'm seeing disagreement online about whether maps for the PC versions of Halo 2 and CE will make the cut. 343's Frank O'Connor has told us that they will. "We've actually added a bunch of maps that were never available on the console versions from the PC versions, so they're in there now." We're seeking clarification, though.

Update 2 - A Microsoft spokesperson has told OXM that all maps from the PC versions of Halo 2 and CE are, indeed, included.

You know despite how silly it is, I would think it must be at least a little entertaining to see people make up a dramatic conspiracy behind your every action.

Pretty sure 343 is run by aliens guys.
