I much prefer the new Gungnir mix to the original. The guitar sounds less distorted. Sure, there are places where the guitar is too powerful over the orchestra, and solos can be taken out or fixed up. Otherwise, it sounds nice.

The new song IMO is the remastered version of "Follow", like Masterz said, or "Ancient Machine"... I don't know about Blow Me Away, but I'm pretty much sure they're not going to redo it because Breaking Benjamin broke up (sadly).
The remastered version of "Impend" sounds awesome, though

Ben just emerged a few weeks ago with a new bunch of guys and a teaser for their next album, actually. It would've been cool if they could've had Breaking Benjamin and Incubus redo their songs but I guess that isn't the case.

I thought they were just doing tours with the remaining members of the band... I guess I lived under a rock during these weeks. You, sir, made my day, thanks!

Here's H1!

New netcode looks awesome, medals for MP, remastered sound looks like it is there even in original MP, and the Ani HUD is also in classic mode.

Always thought the Anniversary HUD looks unprofessional - something I'd expect from your average CE custom map. Would rather see the original in higher resolution.

^ I agree with BTC. The ani hud thrown into the classic maps looks bad. Also, I simply can't get behind the updated soundtrack when compared to the original. Everything feels more overdone then it needs to be, Halo 2 had one of the best soundtracks in the entire franchise. Don't fix something that's not broken...

All the HUD stuff shown runs in a flash based overlay, the original HUD wouldn't work well since it's so low resolution, and they need to have hooks for all their new things such as XBL support, medals, and campaign scoring. My biggest complaint with the Ani HUD is the weird black flash you can see sometimes, and the revised designs for the shield bar and the sniper reticule.

I prefer the classic H2 soundtrack as well from what we've heard, but I think it was at PAX they talked about how they needed to re-record it so it would use modern audio features like true 5.1 support that is expected in modern games.

You can see upgraded cyborg shiled shaders in the vid. Looks pretty good


Looks broken to me, also it is using the PC teleporter shaders.

Why would they change the sniper reticle like that, it's so...well big.
The revised soundtrack is okay, but I still prefer original. The intro-song goes full derp at 2min in...

H1 in 1080p 60 FPS looks great, so smooth and sharp.

probably to greater represent how it operates in H1, it was weird in H1 Ani but I never missed any shots because of it.

if Kirby can work his magic and make this 30fps, then we can have 60fps anims here too, but it will kill me that we might lose a few online players here and there because of h1 multiplayer

That doesn't make much sense. The netcode in CE is so bad compared to the later games I'd imagine most have left already. I haven't played outside of testing in years despite loving the game to death.

I wish the medals showed up next to the killfeed a little more, they're so randomly placed on the side and the killfeed itself is laughably ignorable and too high up. Sounds are the same as they were, and were always in the game no matter if in classic or remastered. Same with the HUD, it always appeared no matter what as well.

wishful thinking
since 343 had such an easy time getting Halo PC exclusive maps onto the xbox one it would be cool if they selected a few great/popular custom edition maps and dropped them into a forge playlist.

Atleast they didn't add those horrible Mantis things from h4.

A little concerned with the potential lame-ness of the, ugh, EMP blasters in the bases. Disabling all vehicles around the base. Ugh.

The Mantis was the most ridiculously OP thing ever added to Halo's sandbox but god damn was it fun to use. Originally it was only gonna be added to singleplayer, but when it was added to multiplayer people loved and hated it at the same time. This is probably why bungie never added vehicles like pelicans or scarabs to MP because a single player would have absolutely no chance against them.

Well in H3, it's just a matter of knocking out the knee joints and boarding the thing. I think one of the reasons Bungie never added Pelicans or Scarabs to regular MP is because Halo maps generally aren't of the same scale as, say Battlefield maps, probably due to the 16-player limit.

People are such cry babies about the mantis. The thing is weaker and easier to take out than a tank. I really liked it's inclusion to the game.

There was a big thread about Bloodline's appearance on HBO. It's so drab and depressing right now. Someone really needs to slap 343i's environment artists.

I really wish we got something closer to this:

Well that's just like, your opinion, man. It doesn't make everyone else a cry-baby. :C

It's not really my opinion as much as it is a fact. The thing is a heavy piece of artillery, it shouldn't be viewed as overpowered since it is doing exactly what it is meant to. People can dislike the vehicle on a certain map or it's spawn points, those are valid areas for debate and would classify as an opinion. But anyone who dislikes the Mantis because it is "overpowered" would be wrong as it's the weakest of the heavy artillery vehicles. Comparing it to a ghost or hog or banshee is ridiculous.

If you believe the mantis is overpowered, then why isn't the Scorp or Wraith.

So far all I've seen is the hogs, ghost, banshee and carbine. I really like the art style direction they went with for H2 Ani, much more than H1's. I just wish Bloodline was richer in color and Lockdown wasn't so pinkish. But for the most part it looks really nice.
