Amazon give you $10 off your preorder if you have Prime.
I didn't get it
The digital only. I don't care about the physical doodads.
I got the normal edition, but physical disc since I have Gamers Club Unlocked from Best Buy. 20% off is worth waiting to go and pick up the disc and download the patches on release day to me.
Just finished Halo 1. Going to try to knock 2/3/4 out before next Tuesday.
1 and 2 came out during my Video Game Dark Ages. 3 was still kind of a thing when I got around to picking up an Xbox 360, but I never played it. I bought 4,but only played enough of the campaign to get a feel for the controls and jumped into multi-player.
Am I still going to have to suck down a giant update if I preordered the digital version and it's preloaded and ready to go?
If you're worried about getting stuck with that massive download when the game drops on October 27, there is good news. If you choose to go the digital download route, you'll actually be able to get started on the patch a full five days early. Just make sure that you either power on your console, or leave it on “Instant On” mode, and it will get started on the patch as early as October 22nd.
My game download is updating right now actually

if you preordered before 9/21 this will be an issue: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/g.../launch-update
MCC was such an abortion i'm going to wait until tomorrow to see how the launch went. would rather delay buying the game for a day then engage in the level of frustration that mcc caused.
So if I bought and preloaded on Saturday I should be okay I assume?
Yall doing the campaign first or diving into multiplayer?
Just had guys go 20-0 and 15-1 against us. I suck ass.
Installing my game now. Oh, and I picked up the Elite Controller....
I think I just went 4-40 on Warzone. Is that bad?
Just did half of the first campaign mission on legendary. I usually do the full legendary campaign before jumping into multiplayer. By then I'm familiar with all the controls/power ups.
how is it guys?
any bugs or crashes? matchmaking not taking too long?
It's weird to have an AI fire team, but they are pretty dumb so you're basically alone. They try to revive you when you're down, but they only succeed 50-ish% of the time.
Not sure you can join someone else's solo game. Might have to start a co-op game together.
Is it worth the purchase? I'm seeing things which are a bit critical of the SP, but praise the MP. Debating if I just want to wait until FO4 comes out to drop money again
I am undecided. I mean I suck at it because I was never really a Halo player. I forgot how different the MP controls and gameplay is (like no ADS).
I also don't know how to figure out what anyone else is doing.
I don't know what all I'm doing besides killing things, but my first game of Warzone was great. 22 kills, 18 assists, 10 deaths, 4 boss takedowns, good fun.
Oh, so that's how you get tanks and better weapons... 30-10 this game, thanks to about 20 scorpion kills. I $#@!ing love vehicles, most people are just cannon fodder when I get in a tank. The wraith is too slow, not my style, need the marine tank to do some damage. Got to run around in a Mantis too, which is pretty badass. The other team kept wasting all their requisition stuff on lasers trying to kill me and another guy in a tank, but we kept wrecking them. War zone is a really fun game type, I like the mix of AI and people to kill, it makes it more interesting. We were down about 600-300 at one point, but our team started getting vehicles and took all 3 points to mount a comeback. When we were up about 950-875, I noticed a few of their guys going for a boss worth 100 points that could win them the game. I drove my tank over there and squashed them and the boss for the victory.
I guess we played against some Halo lifers last night because we got super rekt.
Just started, kind of underwhelmed so far. Weapons and controls feel... mushy? Not sure what else to say, they just feel off.
Yeah I'm gonna try again after dinner but I dunno how much staying power it's gonna have on me.
