    I don't understand; wasn't there already a PC port of Halo? I remember playing Halo on PC, with mouse and keyboard.

    Just a little anecdote about what recently happened to me. I don't care about video game journalism in the slightest and considered the hatred towards it around here towards it to be mostly memes out of control, but I guess I'll have to reconsider now.

    So, I was on tour recently and we played at a smaller club in a medium-sized town. The Bar owner was an older, true rocknroll type of guy who shared lots of 'war stories' of his time in the 70's in great britain, with who he had been on tour and what not, etc... Really entertaining and charismatic guy, fun to listen to. At one point he and a female employee starts going through a list of new video games and do what seems like trading steam codes. Out of curiosity, I ask what it's about.
    Turns out the dude is also a freelance writer and in charge of the video game resort of a national monthly lifestyle magazine. However, he doesn't play games anymore for, like, 10 years or more already. Says he figured out how games work long ago. Instead, he watches youtube footage of games he's about to review while he's at work and later writes down what he saw in the videos, rephrased as if it was from his own experience. Thus, he doesn't redeem the codes he receives from devs and publishers and rather gifts them to coworkers.

    Surely most of you will now think "So what? We knew that all along". But it's really astonishing to have that confirmed from the very mouth of one of those 'gaming journos' without the slightest hint of shame.

    Halo & Halo 2 were ported to PC years ago, great ports by the way, that's how I played them. This new Halo is Halo 1, 2, 3, 4, Reach & ODST. 1 & 2 were completely remade and at the same time allow you to play them in he same way they originally were.

    yeah but since then there were borked ports of japanese games, like Souls (and similar) that had terrible kb+m control, or no mouse support at all (Nioh) that started this meme.

    Turns out Ultima 7 turns into an isometric game if you rotate it.

    With a keyboard. And it was terrible. They patched in mouse support eventually though, dunno how good it is.

    Should also note the Dark Souls ports play mostly fine with kb+m, the first one being the worst by far, but the remaster improves things in this regard.

    And if you slightly tilt it, it becomes a cavalier oblique game.
    But why? Doesn't look better or improved to me at all.

    It's also scaled down vertically. If you just rotate it 45 degrees it looks stretched.
