Not sure why I'm taking the bait but things pick up before Christmas in multiple ways. You can only compare January and February 2017 to January and February 2016 to see how it's trending and as it's been mentioned multiple times, we are getting more this year.

You could compare to those months, but I don't think they really hit their stride until closer to summer. I think it is more relevant to compare it to more recent months.

This news should make some of you happy.

Halo 6 will include split screen.

This is true I guess.  The news was all FPS going forward. :)

You could compare Trump and Obama's inauguration crowds, but the hype surrounding the first black president makes it more relevant to compare to Bush jr's numbers. It's just a coincidence that such a comparison is more favorable to Trump. :rolleyes: #alternativefacts


In gaming news, pretty bummed about the AoT price hike. I've heard good things but still haven't watched the anime, and there was a little buzz in here that had me ready to watch some gameplay vids to see if it was right for me, but it looks like that ship has sailed. Oh well, it's probably a bad idea to waste $20+ just so I get that $4 reward.

It's nice to see 343 admit mistakes, they usually brush them off pretty hard. I would like to see their numbers for people who do play splitscreen, but even if it's less than 10%, virtually the entire community lost their shit when this was discovered. I think the reaction was made worse because they chose not to say anything about removing splitscreen until the game was actually out. They clearly weren't ready for it. If they'd dial back their graphics a bit I think it'd be feasible, but the overly designed aesthetic of their art style may have trapped them as far as performance at this point. I'm curious if they'll be able to stick to 60 FPS. Halo 5 already had to make a lot of sacrifices to make it work. A dynamic resolution and Forge object mostly looking extremely basic on top of no splitscreen.

 

Irrational/Ghost Story just needs to give some details on what they're actually making. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a walking simulator so my expectations are low.

Is there a way to easily figure out purchases made through the sales and specials app? Pretty sure that's how I bought space invaders even though it is showing up as unpurchased online.

I feel like I remember a method being posted on here ages ago, can't seem to find it now though.

I think it would show up in your download history on 360, though I don't know how you would make it show up on Xbone.

Removing split-sceen co-op from Halo is like removing it from Mario Kart to me, its a game mode that has been there for every entry in the series (portables notwithstanding) and its one of the main reasons I enjoy the series. You can't just remove a feature like that after six entries across two console generations and not expect people to react negatively, especially after the MCC had it too.

Other then what was mentioned, you could also check your emails. MS started sending purchase confirmation emails Jan 2013, I think.

I'll never forget how I somehow missed that it wouldn't have split-screen co-op (Halo 5), I pre-ordered it, and when it arrived my girlfriend and I had found a babysitter, we sat down together on the couch, and then she watched me struggle for an hour trying to get split-screen to work before she eventually googled it and told me it didn't have it, and I still didn't believe her, and kept trying to figure it out. Halo without couch co-op? lol.

 

We then gave up and watched Netflix, but the next day I went back to it and played on my own for probably 3 hours or so, and never went back to it. 

 

I suppose if I had more Xbox Live friends you could find some fun in it still, but I definitely prefer playing with friends/family on the couch in the same room. It's just not the same.

Halo in particular with its health system made it easy for an experienced player to carry a noob and just have fun, an ex of mine was pretty terrible but she still wanted to play since there was less punishment for dying in co-op. I get the shift has been towards online play and that may be the majority of it, but it's just... they might as well remove one of the analog sticks on the controller, it's something you expect to be there.

I did split-screen Halo 4 with a friend of mine and I didn't care for it at all.

I played through all the halos on the master chief collection split screen, (heroic) and because of the respawn system it's not very challenging but was lots of fun as co-op game. played through 5 solo as I had no choice and I enjoyed it because it was much more difficult, that said I'm glad splitscreen is coming back
