    Yeah, you're probably right, sadly.

    Still, excited to see what they do show.

    Wonder if they'll ever remake Reach, or at least bother to update the playlist so I can actually play the DLC maps.

    So I finished ODST again, and followed it up with this (in two sittings!)

    Some of it may seem lazy (reusing areas for SP, MP and Firefight) and some might seem like a none-too-subtle experiment (expect ship piloting in Destiny 2), but damn, if I didn't really enjoy it. I'd forgotten how much fun the campaign is.

    So in (controversial) order of my favourite campaigns, I reckon:

    3
    Reach
    4
    1
    ODST
    2

    Yeah, I loved the Halo 4 campaign. It was varied, interesting and beautiful #dealwithit

    Pretty damn similar to how I'd rate them:

    3 or Reach
    4 or CE
    ODST
    2

    I've also said before on this forum that I really loved 4. I thought it was excellent. I do need to replay ODST though, it's been a while.

    I was a bit disappointed when I played ODST again. It's great, but only as an add-on type game. The Mombassa hub bits just felt a bit like they were getting in the way of the story bits. Which is one of the things that concerns me about Destiny.

    And yeah, Halo 4 is ace. The MP has too many variables, but is still more fun than most FPS multiplayers. But the campaign is fantastic.

    One thing that I did notice in Reach was how utterly bollocks the performance was. Loads of glitchy bits ("oh God, I hope this load freeze isn't a crash") and incredibly variable frame rate - even more so in cut scenes, strangely.

    4 somehow managed to be prettier, higher res and pretty stable FPS. Fucking witchcraft, is what it is!

    Reach
    3
    1
    odst
    4
    2.

    loved odst and the characters but the missions were generally far behind other bungie games.

    4 was very good but the promethean bits were mostly dog shit.

    That's my worry. I did enjoy stalking around New Mombasa and taking down patrols of Brutes and Grunts for a good while, but much of the city is very samey. I can forgive it that, given that it was a smaller-scale effort for Bungie, but I think playing it through again might make me feel that sense of samey-ness a bit more keenly.

    I loved 4's campaign. Replayed it fairly recently (not long before the MCC was announced, in fact) and I'm already keen to go back through it on XBO. Even replaying it after having bought an XBO and PS4, I was astounded at how good it looked, and kept stopping just to look about.

    I also really enjoyed the MP, even given some of the stuff that admittedly does need taking out it was still a lot of fun. As long as 343 can learn from their mistakes, I think 5 could be pretty special.

    I don't remember having too many problems with Reach's performance - the odd hitch here and there, but nothing major. It's definitely easier to notice in cutscenes with that odd framey blurring on some motion.

    It might have been because I didn't bother to install it to the HDD, that probably didn't help. That motion blur was plain odd, though. I kinda see the effect they were going for, but it didn't really work. Really odd focal length blur, too.

    We really need to party up for more Halo!

    Yeah, it's especially weird in that cutscene with Jorge ducking in front of the camera at the start of the game. The DoF effect is overpowering too.

    We do! When the MCC comes out for definite!

    No...?

    Haha, I am planning on doing the whole thing all the way through. Just not in one sitting.

    Well let's try and do some of that co-op.

    Although we're having a baby at the beginning of October, so that might not help.

    I'd never tell my wife, but it's a bit of a toss-up as to which i'm looking forward to more!

    Ok, so if I hear a baby crying over the headset, it's definitely not you after getting stuck in the game, right?

    I've completed all on legendary, solo* including Halo Wars. So that'll be you crying!

    *apart from 2. Because that was unbelievably difficult :-(

    It probably will be, to be fair ;) the amount of times I had to re-do bits on Reach recently was bordering on the absurd. Brutes in the Traxis tower while waiting for the lift... Oh god...

    Yeah that's tough. Especially with the Shades on either side. You need to pick up the plasma cannon from the brute outside the building to stand much of a chance.

    Cannot wait to try the Halo 2 campaign again, it's been eons since I've played it. And in co-op too!

    Are we limited to 2 player co-op in Halo 2 Anniversary?

    Also, I'm assuming there's no change to the pseudo Iron skull on Legendary?

    They're doing an overhaul for the skulls in Halo 2 Anniversary, my money's on an actual iron skull and easier standard mode.

    1 & 2 equal
    3
    ODST
    4
    Reach

    Was playing Reach campaign with my mate the other day...boy do I despise sprint and bloom in Halo.

    Also will dedicated servers for the Master Chief Collection get rid of the delay in co-op?
