I wanted to make a thread about this, but I figured it would get buried under all the E3 news. The people in this thread would certainly benefit though:

Microsoft Stores giving a minimum $10 trade-in credit on any last-generation game when you pre-order an Xbox One game

The key here is $10 minimum on any Wii, WiiU, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and/or Xbox One title. Maximum of 5 games allowed. So if you have a bunch junky old games that Gamestop won't give you $1 for, you can pick up the Master Chief Collection for $10. Offer ends on June 15.

I will make the thread, and try to give it a couple bumps when the E3 hype dies down. It's kinda important to get the word out quick since the offer ends in 4 days.

Halo Combat Evolved looks really weird and janky when running at 60FPS. Are they going back to adjust the animations so it looks more smooth?

ah ok, this never happened to me because Rocks were always contested in the games I played, LAN or XBC.

This could be a problem on XBL though, so ya it is something worth fixing.

So will sword canceling and rocket canceling work in Halo 2?

I understand exactly why people would want them removed, but I'd like to see them stay purely for servicing my own selfish nostalgic desires.

That was never a very practical glitch in a real match of CE. Plus, CE gives all players the ability to compete against all power weapons right off the spawn. Even a player with "infinite" rockets for one life isn't insurmountable.

While it would be nice to have it fixed, it's not going to ruin online if they don't. I really hope if they do fix it they don't also remove backpack reload and double melee, as those were nice additions for the speed of the game. Quick Camo and Powerup doubling also need to be left alone.

I'd be more concerned about the rock geo-glitch on BG and escaping the maps. Those are things that duechebags online are going to use.

Ah, yeah.

Though I will say, while the Elite designs were retconned, I do hope people understand that the armor they wore wasn't (regardless of what Forward Unto Dawn will have you believe)

Maybe hard to see, but in the background you see Elites wearing their Halo 1 - Reach armor.

Edit: And I will not get into any argument here.

The awesome thing about Halo 1 weapons reloading while on the ground is that they were still limited by the amount of spare cartridges, and perpetually attempted to reload until full. So, if you only have one spare cartridge for your AR and you ground-reload it, you can hear the gun repeatedly "reload" itself one shot at a time until the magazine is full.

Offhand, how many of the reload glitches (ground reload, backpack reload, etc) actually worked on Halo PC? Remember, Anniversary is built off that, and so far, an assumption can be made that online will be based off of Halo PC's networking.

Another good question would be if Halo 2 still has handicaps. There's some pretty big exploits you can do with handicaps activated.

You're on the right track, though. Covenant armor, weapon, and vehicle design/functionality varies from fleet to fleet. 343i has confirmed (through the visual guides) that all Covenant design variants, in every Halo game, are canon; that is, with the exception of Halo: CEA retconing the designs of Halo: CE. The armor worn by the Storm-class Sangheili of Halo 4 is specific to the colony of Hesduros (which is where Jul 'Mdama recruited the bulk of his armada), which was likely what FUD was showcasing.
