I just got around to playing some Halo 3 MP. It was several hundred around BC time. Just a hour ago it was several thousands.

It's rather rough going back to Halo 3 BC especially when you factor in Halo MCC. It's hard to go back to 30fps but it was fun. Curious as to what the numbers will be come the weekend.

with og xbox BC anyone think there is any chance of getting more digital xbox originals?

I would hope they do, I'm not sure how much stuff they offered digitally on the 360 from the OG Xbox. I bought Pirates, Psychonauts, and Ninja Gaiden Black off the top of my head, but I don't remember there being a ton of them in the 360 store.

I saw someone say ODST had the best firefight, I thought that was easily the worst of the firefights myself haha

They're different enough that it comes to preference.

ODST: Tough as nails to survive for long, requires constant communication and teamwork. Maps, spawn areas, and weapon spawns are crafted to support this design philosophy. 

 

Reach: Tweaked drastically to make it work for matchmaking. Now you have general loadouts, which generally focused on getting the highest score possible in a time frame or completing one set, rather than the 4 sets generally aimed for in ODST because of Endure. While you could bump the difficulty to be more like ODST in custom games, it functionally became a blow off steam mode. The hardcore mode basically became impossible to play as the low stress Arcade mode became popular.

 

Halo 4: Replaced with Spartan Ops, a failed experiment to give story players something worthwhile in the matchmaking side of the game. The story was bad mostly from virtually all characters being terrible, especially Fireteam Majestic that were the focus of the cutscenes while your own Fireteam Crimson was there to clean up their messes. Overall I'd compare this more to the campaign gameplay than Firefight. Other than having way more enemies it was pretty much the same, with weapon drops and was no round system. Outside of gameplay this is the example I usually go to for 343 clearly wanting to but their own huge stamp on the series, with the heavy focus on how "cool" the Spartan IVs were, something that didn't actually have any merit until Halo 5 with Fireteam Osiris. 

 

Halo 5: Added as an afterthought to try and get Arena only players to use the weapons you can only get from microtransactions. It was ridiculously hard on launch, trign to get you to burn through REQs to have any chance of finishing. Once they added more difficulties it became much better. The easiest mode, Heroic, feels between ODST and Reach, though a lot closer to Reach.

 

When you look back at ODST, and remember that it was made by the core team that then went on to work on early Destiny instead of Reach, it's pretty clear that a lot of Raid ideas were taken from it. Possibly the Nightfall to, with ODST adding the Skulls in as you got farther.

If I'm reading all this halo discussion correctly to complete my full halo line up in XB1 I need:

1) Halo MCC as it has 60 fps.

2) Halo 3 ODST for Xbox 360 as it is now BC. There is an ODST dlc for MCC but it is campaign only. So you sacrifice 60 fps for mutiplayer or vice versa with ODST. Or you get both.

3) Halo Reach. Only available for Xbox 360 and now BC.

4) Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox 1.

RE: Pubg and fortnite

Man, if only they actually released a game they could have capitalized on it. How the heck do you put out early access on mutiple platforms like that, when that development time could have been spent finishing the game.

I would not be suprised if final version doesn't come out. Or if it ends up being crap

LOL.

PvP has been around for decades. I'm sure Epic planned a Battle Royal mode early on. The only dig I see at PUBG is that they're making it free and beating them to market on console. Sorry but that's just good business.

Our big news is the initial version of Squads coming 9/26 with support for DBNO (down but not out), duos (2 players) and squads (1-4 players). Emphasis is on “initial” as we are optimizing for getting the feature out ASAP and will continue to iterate and polish afterwards. The squads playlist will be enabled on 9/26 and we will monitor population numbers to decide when to enable duos.

I have a question about this weekend (4 days?) Forzathon.  Haven't you been able to three star the same speed zone repeatedly and have it count?  You have to do three, 3 star speed Zones in a specific Lambo.   Found a spot that was easy for me to do this.  Did it like 4 times but only counted once.  Went to another spot and missed 3 stars by like 1 MPH.  But it then gave me credit (via achievement tracker) for my second one.  I then did that location legit 3 stars.  Nothing.   Had to go to another location to get the last one.

 

Wonder if they changed that on purpose or if I had some weird glitch going on or what.

 

All I have left is 3 play ground games in a mini.

I'm mainly excited for Fortnight Battle Royale because free and since the others are taking time to get to Xbox lol.

Also Six min whistle, just wanted to say, that I definitely do agree with most of what you said, I said ODST was my least favorite firefight but I still did enjoy it and played a good amount of it, I just liked the later styles a bit more, but it was definitely a lot more challenging at its core without custom modes and such. I enjoyed Reachs a lot, but Reach is my favorite Halo and I just enjoyed everything about that game. H5 Firefight has definitely gotten better.

I'm looking forward to this but I still think they should just throw in random mutant storms that pop up and keep things interesting or say a balance against turtlers. I was watching a guy turtle for at least 5 minutes and it was so satisfying to see him get cut off when the zone shrunk and he got caught in his own fortifications hahaha.

 

Also my internet via hotspot is back to normal! F'n finished downloading Saints Row: The Third and Lifelock. Grabbed the Minecraft update and new Minecraft download as well but that's it. I'm saving myself for Forza lol!

The biggest thing out of this is the supersampling for me because I haven't upgraded to a 4K TV setup yet. Supersampling should improve textures, frame rates and automatically kick in before a supported update tweaks things to really take advantage of the X's hardware.

I disagree. For one, your example has a 20 year gap rather than a few months.

The real issue is that Fortnite was created as a tower defense survival game. PvP was clearly never a focus for development. A more natural fit for a PvP mode would be a ripoff of CastleStorm. Something where two teams build up bases, then lead armies of husks against each other.

Battle Royale, or even Deathmatch, are terrible fits for the gameplay of Fortnite. It's clearly just tacked on and pushed out to feed off the hype of PUBG. It also doesn't help Fortnite, because people will play that lackluster free mode and write the whole rest of the game off, the rest being the systems that the game was actually developed around. Anyone that jumps into Fortnite to wet their appetite while they wait for PUBG are going to jump ship as soon as PUBG launches.

So I repurchased Dying Light and fired it up and my save is gone! I know the game got the “enhanced edition” patch (sans the DLC). Did that blow away original game saves?

Very annoying because I know the game takes a while to get going and didn’t want to go through that whole apartment building stuff again. That was boring enough to turn me off the game the first time around. But I wanted to give the game another shot.

Anyway, has anyone else lost their game save for Dying Light at some point?

Your saves are still there - it's just that they're incompatible with the "GOTY" edition of the game. All the Warner Bros.-published games are like that: Batman, Witcher, etc.

Not an issue in my mind. Games in development can you know, develop into whatever they want, as they're not finalized yet. You can't trademark, copyright or patent a game mode.

Platformers became the-new-next-thing when Mario showed the world how it was done. There were a bunch of Tetris, Doom and GTA clones because that's how the gaming industry works (even more blatant in the mobile gaming industry)...

Somebody should tell him that he doesn't get to have much of a say about making games based on other people's ideas when he got the idea from a 17 year old Japanese movie.

 

Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is pretty good, though it still obviously needs some work since it has no stats, progression, character creator, squad support, and some other things to flesh it out a bit. It'll do until PUBG is out, so Brendan should keep working on that since it'll sell just fine whenever they finally get it on consoles.
