    Tentatively optimistic, except for needing an XBL account.

    Yeah, it's really nice we don't have to rely on that mess of a digital-storefront and can just buy it from the Microsoft Store.

    If it's anything like the old GFWL games you can make an offline profile for singleplayer. I haven't bought a Windows Store game though so I don't know if they changed that.

    So $55 for the set? That's a little disappointing. Sure, they weren't on PC until now, but still. Maybe there'll be some lump-sum discount to bump it down. Not bloody likely but I can dream.

    It's a lot I guess if you're used to seeing the Xbox disc at Gamestop with a coffee stain on the cover and a faded $20 price-tag, but as a PC only guy I think $10 each sounds fair. Especially since they're remasters, and previews for Reach make it sound like a solid port with a lot of effort put in.

    First wave of betas for Halo Insider out today. Some new footage as well (it's the same mission as the stream but at least in better quality overall)

    I'm happy they're giving you the option to buy individually. I doubt I'll be getting Reach, and I definitely won't be getting Halo 4. Saves me 20 bucks and I get every game I'd consider worth bothering with.

    Is there really that wide a quality gap? Genuine question, I only played the first two.

    Halo 4 was made by 343 Studios, who weren't aware that Master Chief was the main character of Halo... when they were working on Halo 5.

    But isn't Halo 4 the one with the hottest version of Cortana? I thought she was the whole reason Halo exists. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Halo series consist of AAA desktop stripper applications?

    Halo was good. Nice music and visuals, and the fact you could drive any vehicle was very cool. Furthermore the different enemies have different tactics which is p cool.

    My cousin had an Xbox, and we played the campaign. It was boring as hell. Then I played it again at my brother's friend's house, and we played 1 v 1's. It was actually quite fun. Seems the multiplayer is the real gem when talking about this game. It's simple and pretty fun. A bit like Goldeneye back in the day.

    Anyways, I was fresh off of Resistance: Fall of Man, which is definitely inspired by Halo, so I was beastly at it. My brother's friend was so pissed that he actually called his stupid nephew who won some city tournament to come and play me. I had to remind his ass that I didn't give two fucks about the game or his nephew. Guy was some fat IT, faggot that thought he was good at video games.

    Man, I was killing it in MP back when R:FoM was big on the PS3. Anyways, just my experience with Halo. Never played anything else in the series, and after R:FoM, I've not touched a FPS multiplayer. Oh, I also used to play the shit out of Blackhawk Down on MP back in the day.
