Halo: MCC Update 12/22/2014 What a mess!

By: IBachI Dec 24, 2014 | 1 Comments

How does 343 fail miserably when designing the matchmaking system for Halo: MCC crafted specifically for next-gen hardware when Bungie created a legitimate source for matching players' games 10+ years ago on limited legacy consoles? Such a disappointment!

Initially, I was excited to get my hands on Halo: MCC, but after experiencing the agonizing torture of trying to get into a game, I was overwhelmingly frustrated.  I shouldn't have to wait 20+ minutes to play on a map for 5.  Even when in an even number party, it was difficult to join any game.  I fell in love with the idea of playing all the old content such as Halo: CE/2 etc., but if this is what I have to go through, Ill pass.  Campaign and the pre-designed playlist mix are ok i guess, if thats what your into.  However, the real meat of this game, everyone knows, is the multiplayer and 343 let a lot of players down in this aspect.  As far as I can tell, the recent update didnt really do much.  Players are still having difficulty joining games when in a party and matchmaking is inconsistent at best.  I only hope they turn it around because I am a real fan of the franchise, I enjoy playing when im playing, and shootin' nuabs in the face.  Comment if you feel my pain!

It's finally time for a next-gen Halo

Microsoft today announced that a next-generation Halo game is on the way, but  not this year.

I’m happy to reveal that “Halo 5: Guardians,” the next installment in the legendary saga of the Master Chief, will launch on Xbox One in fall of 2015.  In the tradition of every “Halo” game since its debut in 2001, it is a massive and exciting project.

There will be some news coming at E3 regarding what will happen this year in the Halo universe. We're still betting on a Halo 2 anniverserary HD remake super special edition.

Spoilers for Halo 4 Story

    When Master Chief awakes, the Forward Unto Dawn is boarded by a bunch of Covenant - they are looking for something, not the Chief. The Covenant, a particularly religious remnant led by the Elites, have come in search of Requiem to find and look for a Forerunner weapon cache. The Covenant also believe Requiem to be the place where a living god is being kept - they wish to find and wake him up to enlist his aid in fighting humanity. Main antagonist is called Didact, an ancient Forerunner. He is the being the religious Covenant believe to be a living god. Dr Halsey, who made a cameo in Reach, makes an appearance as the Chief wants her help to find a solution to Cortana's "problem" Cortana is able to project multiple versions of herself at once - multiple Cortanas A climatic battle involving the Chief, Didact and Cortana takes place A character has, or appears to have, telekinesis
Mo-Cap Script for Actors

Quote:

"In that case, you won't mind..." Cortana appears behind the Didact.

at all of the Cortanas emerging from the Bridge

"Compassion for mankind is misplaced." - Didact

"I'm not doing this for mankind." Chief then charges thet Didact.

rushes towards Didact and jumps all over him (legs, arms, chest, back)

Several takes of "Cortana" tackling and climbing on random objects at full speed.

Didact is attacked by Cortana. He attempts to swat at Cortana as a means of self defence.

Didact unclenches his fist and drops Chief.

Cortana begins restraining Didact by constraining his limbs to the Bridge.

-Several takes of "Cortana" climbing on "Didact" actor and then...

a specific body part (head, back, waist, knees, ebows, shoulders)

-Didact struggle idle.

Chief is released

-Chief immobilised pose

-Chief falls, lands on edge

-Chief hanging idle

Plus here's some more info about the Didact, quoted from Halo: The Thursday War.

“Don’t you see it? Requiem. That’s where the Didact was hidden. That’s where they say he waits.” He tried to fight the flood. He tried to destroy the humans. That, he said, is the symbol for the holy warrior who will come to the aid of the faithful in their hour of need. Didact sleeps and must never be woken. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a jimmy.

343 Industries provides a look at the work going into the new Halo 4 in this latest behind-the-scenes video.

 

I'm not the hypest person for the newest Halo game since I lost interest after 2. What are your thoughts on the game?
