Good News for me and CAPAC. Assuming its not one of those weird things that doesn't happen in Australia

Funny you should say that. No sign we are getting the reduction here. I have found the cheapest I can get it is $478 with AC: Black Flag, AC Unity and Forza Horizon 2. I could even get 10% off if I buy it this weekend.. but I don't have enough cash to buy it outright until I get paid next week...

Do they have an Australian version of Amazon Warehouse deals? Great listings up here for XB1, basically you're getting used merch with a very generous return policy if it doesn't work.

So whats the plan for this? Do we want to start playing through at midnight, or are we gonna be sensible adults and wait till evening the next day? Or what...

After two weeks of saying backordered, the MCC from Microsoft's store finally shipped… so I guess I've got to buy it digitally now and hope the servers aren't getting slammed when I get home.

I'll be jumping in and playing a little late this evening whenever I get my copy downloaded. Unlike some of you guys I don't get veterans day off :) I'll be on regularly this week though for a few hours every night (can't spend my whole time on it because we do have to keep working on that book we owe you :P)

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
I've got tomorrow off and am likely to be powering through most of the campaigns on easy for terminal content unlocks and new cutscenes. I think I'm going to be going it solo until I've beaten the campaign on legendary though. After that, multiplayer with everybody! :) Probably won't be until later in this week though for me, unfortunately.

People have been complaining about all manners of issues and glitches, but I haven't found any (except one of the supplemental Nightfall videos was entirely in Italian. Which for a while I thought was part of the style, and was digging.)

Really enjoying the unified control schemes, although while it's going to be incredibly comfortable not worrying about the shoulders for Halo 3, it's really messing me up in Halo 2. I might just use the "Reclaimer" option for Halo 3 and 4 and just stick with the OG defaults for 1 and 2.

Did you end up fixing this? I really want to watch those secondary stories. My Italian is a little rusty.

I will check tonight. But yeah, even with you complaining about it in Skype it took me probably two minutes to realize it wasn't intentional. :)

I couldn't even access the 'second stories'. My connection is bad enough that it kept dropping to low res, the Halo Channel keeps randomly hanging, freezing the display but still taking controller input.

On the plus side the game was 97% installed when I woke up this morning so it should be finished when I get home.

It seems like some/many of my problems are because the xbone fails at memory management, and doesn't flush the ram on power down unless you physically cut the power.

Microsoft Won't let me buy it;

"That payment option won't work for this one, try another one"

Even through I just bought live with it no problem
