    I stopped playing Titanfall after a few weeks. Destiny is keeping my interest for now... but I think that will change once the Halo Remastered hits! Nostalgia ftw!

    I had a solid week of titanfall before destiny came out as it came with the console. I enjoyed it a lot and it wasn't nearly as frustrating as I expected, I think it's one I'll dip in and out of.

    Don't think Destiny will keep me away from Halo but I'm enjoying it a lot.

    Have I missed out on the special edition?!

    Didn't hear anything about this, just googling this morning it seems like they are all sold out.

    Really starting to get excited about this game.

    Getting excited too. :D

    I can see Destiny taking a lengthy back seat when this comes out. Not really in the market for the fancy editions gonna try and grab a US download copy assuming they make one available.

    Gonna be tough deciding what to play!

    Sounds epic.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,825 ✭✭✭ IvoryTower


    doesn't it just!


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 25,535 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Dades


    Just ordered this morning on Xbox.com!

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/halo

    Got the pre-downloadable digital version via the US store for circa €47. I think you need the disc version to play the Halo 5 beta, but getting a disc copy in Ireland ain't gonna be cheap. It's the old stuff that appeals anyway!

    65GB download. You wouldn't want to be doing that on the day off you take to play Halo. :eek:

    I've taken two days off...

    Best get preloading :)


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 25,535 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Dades


    Actually - digital buyers DO get beta access!

    http://www.jbgnews.com/2014/10/dont-panic-halo-5-beta-is-available-with-digital-mcc-purchase/242403.html

    Seems there's just been some misleading text. :)

    Jebus, 65gb, I'll have to pre-order that soon and delete one or two things off the HDD.

    So if there is a maximum of 362Gb available on the X1 HDD with the space taken by the OS (http://ie.ign.com/wikis/xbox-one/Xbox_One_Actual_Hard_Drive_Space )

    Then Halo MCC ALONE takes up around one fifth of available HDD space.

    ONE game.

    That's totally mad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,159 ✭✭✭ maximoose


    TBF, it technically isn't really ONE game :pac:

    Is it the same install size off the disc?

    4 full games to be fair with all their dlc included, not one game.

    It's proving a bitch to download. Hangs on both wifi and Ethernet at max 34%.

    Loads of complaints on the web... Just as well there's time to sort it out. I hope!

    Mine downloaded without any issue though it took several days thank to me rural ireland internet. I think the 20gb day one update is supposed to preload a few days before the 11th too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,159 ✭✭✭ maximoose


    It took me a couple of days too, I think the update has already preloaded for me - there's a little controller with a+ symbol on the game which I think means it has downloaded additional updates

    Making of has gone live. Good watch.

    Managed to get it downloaded last night.
    For anyone else having difficulty I did the following steps to get it to work:
    • Settings >> Disc & Blu ray >> Clear Persitent Storages - three times.
    • Settings >> Network >> Advanced Settings >> Alternate MAC address >> Clear
    • Settings >> Power/Start Up >> Do NOT auto turn off

    AFAIK the 20GB update will still need to come down.

    Watched it lastnight on the 360, it's a decent doc. Serious nostalgia watching it, can't wait for next week.


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 25,535 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Dades


    Found it elsewhere on YouTube this morning.

    Oh crikey, I forgot this is only a week away :D

    Can't wait. Special Edition looks fairly epic. Wonder if it got re-stocked??

    Just wondering something while watching that video where they talk about Halo 2 being exactly the same game - but remastered...

    One thing that I always disliked about earlier Halos was that you had to click the thumb-stick to zoom down sights. I always sucked at the BR and I blame this!

    This was compounded after playing MOH, COD, Battlefield etc where you have the left trigger option. In fact I only bought Halo 4 after confirming that at least one of the controller setups allowed left-trigger zoom.

    Basically I'm hoping that there'll be a choice of controller setups for the earlier Halos that wasn't available when they first shipped. And that finally I can shoot the damned BR straight. :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,159 ✭✭✭ maximoose


    I'd imagine as they had it in 4 they'll have it as an option in this

    Give me click-to-zoom any day :)


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 31,239 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mickeroo


    I always use CoD controller set up too, I think it was called Fish-stick in Halo 4.
