    Halo: The Master Chief Collection

    Halo Reach is available on Steam and Windows 10. Halo 1-4, ODST will be released piecemeal as they're ported over in timeline chronological order, not release order. You can rent it for $1-5 right now through Xbox Game Pass.

    Finished replaying the Halo Reach campaign this morning. It's truly glorious to experience on PC with all the platform's perks. No shitty motion blur; high + consistent framerates; missions I struggled with back in the day on 360 I streamrolled with KB+M.

    343 Industries and Splash Damage doing God's work out here. MS gave us a beautiful early Xmas present.

    No achievements unlocking for me with the UWP Game Pass version. I filled a support ticket but it's not a deal breaker for me.

    MCC is discounted by 20% on Steam until April 7th. Halo 1 is out BTW.

    Achievements are actually popping for me in the Steam version. The UWP Win10 version (on Game Pass) was such junk! It's been 8 years but it's still Win32 > UWP.

    Speaking of achievements, I got one for completing the Halo campaign after I finished the first level. I then got achievements for every level that wasn't the level I was playing at the time for the rest of my playthrough. They sure do pop.

    I hope their recent progress on fixing Reach's sound isn't halted. The game's playable but a mess in the audio department, which is sad given Halo as a series has always had great sound.

    The audio fixes are being tested now.

    Halo 2 out May 12th! Worst of the classic series, but still much better than most recent games, including Destiny 2.

    I was used to playing Reach and Halo 1 where you've got percentage health + a recharging shield. It took me a little while to readjust to only having shields.

    Jesus, they beat Miranda with the ugly stick in the remaster. They made her look middle-aged too.

    Halo 2 Anniversary is a terrific graphical upgrade! (IMO)


    As with H1A, I'm still not a fan of the sound rework. Is there an option to have a mix and match of the new graphics with the old sounds with H2A? 🤔

    Apparently Halo 2 MCC has had broken dual-wielding for Elite enemies since launch... modders fixed it within a week of it being on PC. Oh wow, LOL!


    343 Industries deserves their reputation within the community.

    I got into the Halo 3 beta test. It looks and runs great IMO. They'll probably drop H3 in July.

    The other Halos had some problems, but was in Halo 3 beta and everything feels perfect rn. I got good feelings bout this one's launch.
