Halo MCC multiplayer patch is out! Our verdict? It’s still broken!

56416083

Yep 343 Industries just announced a couple hours ago that the Halo Masterchief Collection is out. This update along with other things is supposed to fix the multiplayer issues that have plagued the game since launch. The update comes in at approximately 1.5GB. However, as I have found the multiplayer experience is still littered with errors.

In the video below you will see it took about 8 minutes to get into a match. This is quite depressing for Halo fans. It’s not like this is 343’s first Rodeo. They did an amazing job of taking over reach (which literally needed to be moved from Bungie’s server’s to 343’s own servers. Heck Halo 4 launched with almost no hiccups. However, we are almost two weeks into this game’s launch and one of the most exciting features of the game is still broken. I’m of the firm belief the game was rush and didn’t get the proper testing to fix these items before launch.

PlayStation TV unboxing video with Danthol

I rarely pickup consoles at launch, but I was intrigued by the PlayStation Vita getting turned into something you can hook up to the television.

I’m having a good time with it so far, loving that I can play some Persona Golden 4 and Patapon 2!

Destiny critic reviews dominating on the PS4

I noticed this disparity in reviews at Metacritic this morning and found it interesting how many more critics are reviewing only the PS4 version.

Bungie is most well known for it’s Halo series (now managed by 343 Studios), which was huge on the XBOX and XBOX 360, and it would stand to reason that fans would flock to the XBOX One version of the game as well, but if reviews are any indication, the PS4 is the definitive version of the game.

At the time of this post, there are only 6 XBOX One reviews compared to 46 PS4 reviews, with half of all user reviews on both systems being negative (I’ll never understand why anyone would ever give a game like this a zero).

I made a keychain of myself!

6 years ago, I was co-host on this little videogame podcast called Game Zone Radio. After a long break, we recorded our 57th episode (warning some NSFW language). I had a really good time; it made me feel 6 years younger.

My other website HardcorePerler.com is a project I have been working on in some of the time beteween, and part of what I do is make DIY Keychains and other beadsprite art. Check it out, there’s some really cool things there.

I’ll be making Ken and Mitchell keychains in the coming days, and I will be sure to post the results here. =)
