Re: About Halo 4 ...

In Response To: About Halo 4 ... (Kermit)

: I played the first few minutes of Halo 4. I’ve got my problems with the game,
: but man, it was beautiful and silky smooth. Already it seems better than I
: remember.

: I started downloading the game yesterday and it was very slow (I think I was
: at 29% when I left this morning—it went from 17 to only 29% overnight),
: but it did let me start accessing parts.

: I played a bit of Assault on the Control Room this morning. Also silky smooth
: and pretty. Loaded a few of unique maps that shipped only with the PC
: version. Very cool. Old and new graphics look great. You know how the
: screenshots always looked better than the game? Now everything looks as
: good as the best screenshots. Impressive.

As soon as I started up CE, I got giddy. I was a doubter of 60fps, but the graphics are smooth and silky, and at 1080p 60fps, even CE is beautiful (to my eyes at least).
Like you said, so pretty :)

Unfortunate you had to wait so long for the download... my tv crapped out again, JUST as I was going to start playing, and it was good all weekend. argh!

I upgraded my old monitor to a 27" with HDMI so I could at least enjoy it - and the upgrade wasn't JUST for MCC; it's actually a good upgrade I intended to do, and could only afford because of trade-ins for my One and MCC. :P

Yesterday was a good day. Even though I didn't spend the whole day on my couch playing Halo, heh.
