Halo 1 is still broken on MCC, so disappointing considering this is definitely the last update.
I can't tell if it's still broken or not. I think my bone's wifi reciever is busted. It gets 5.2mbps dl when every other device in the same room gets like 20+
In my experience the xbone's built-in wifi is trash. All three xbones that I have owned have horrible speeds over wifi when everything else gets significantly better download and upload speeds.
well, i guess i gotta move the bone into my room and suffer the awful pc monitor speakers [editline]14th October 2015[/editline] funny that a device that made such a big deal about connectivity ended up skimping on that particular bit of hardware
I've always found that consoles have really shitty speeds. It's not exclusive to the Xbox One.
To be fair though, all three consoles seem to have really bad built in wifi. I use to have two Xbones, one in the living room and one in my room, but in the living room it came down to having either my PS4 or Xbone plugging into the wall for a direct connection. Oddly enough though my Wii U has managed to keep a pretty steady connection when playing Mario Kart or Splatoon online over wifi, but it's a pain in the butt to download stuff.

Yeah, I mean the shotty and AR have flashlights you can't use (well, the flashlight in Halo 1 was weird as fuck, you sorta could and sorta couldn't) and the Halo Reach AR's ammo counter is a modular attachment that's implied to be replaceable with a sight or something it all kosmetik
Halo 5's shotgun has a flashlight but it isn't really functional. It's functions similar to how the sniper scopes in Battlefield 3/4 work. They give off a light to let you know if some dude with a shotgun is charging at you.
I fucking love that idea btw. It's not just the shotty, it's the scattershot too. Wish it started happening in the series sooner.
Halo 5 Achievements [url]https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/community/blog-posts/halo-5-guardians-achievements-revealed[/url] not all that bad tbh [editline]14th October 2015[/editline] [QUOTE=xalener;48902990]I fucking love that idea btw.

Final achievement is called "Legacy"....
Just got a message from Xbox Live about my Halo 5 preorder. Got a free copy of Spartan Assault. I'm insulted.

ONI wants to use guardians against Elites as it was a failed Forerunner safeguard like the Array; Chief and Halsey kill ONI lady to stop it. Chief finds Cortana in Domain, Chief leaves humanity in pursuit of her a la original Halo 2/3 idea, Locke warns humanity and becomes important at ONI[/sp]

IIRC the XB1 is getting DX12 with the next dashboard update, I wonder if Halo 5 is taking advantage of that [editline]14th October 2015[/editline] Halo 5: Guardians will require a 9GB day one patch I'm guessing that is the multiplayer, like with Halo 4? But that seems awfully big.

obviously [sp]the chief will die only for a legendary post-credits stinger to show his hand twitch with the Cortana chip in hand[/sp]
So like none of my friends have an Xbone, anyone wanna do a Halo 5 four-player campaign run on legendary?
yes GT is Gogmazios [editline]14th October 2015[/editline] and everyone else, feel free to add me. I need more friends on Xbone
Gonna run though it on solo first, but after that, I'm totally up for it. GTs UNSC ODST 3
I'm not much of a campaign person when it comes to Halo so I'll be jumping into the Arena asap.
honestly all i'm praying is that Cortana isn't shoehorned into being some kind of bad guy like she initially was supposed to be in halo 1 give her character a lot more credit than just turning around and making her the villian. Granted i dont think that will happen but nonetheless her character deserves better than that.
Cool stuff, i'll pop you guys a friend request later on. My gamertag is The GrangeRover

Let's move away from spoilers and talk about easter eggs, because I think I have found my favourite Halo EE. It's at the very end of [I]Halo[/I], in Halo 3. [t]http://www.ascendantjustice.com/files/cocop/Halo/Halo%20Large/H3Arch-large.jpg[/t] Does this arch remind you of [URL="http://www.ascendantjustice.com/files/cocop/Halo/SCArch.jpg"]anything?[/URL] Remember that it's a rebuilt (in progress) installation 04, and [URL="http://www.ascendantjustice.com/files/cocop/Halo/IslandCompare.jpg"]features would be similar...[/URL]
Kinda late, but still, was an awesome nod for them to add
