I was given an early copy of Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One to review. The game is really fun! In this video I give a preview of what to expect when Sunset Overdrive releases on October 28.
It’s been a mad two weeks since the start of Round 5, with The Evil Within, Alien: Isolation and the new Borderlands all coming out… more game time!
The time is drawing VERY close to Halo: TMCC, and with it will come a whole host of challenges, do not doubt it…
Not much change to the leaderboard, so let’s go straight onto the new challenges!

Head to round 1’s post for the rules!
Until next time!
We’re back for the final verdict.
Anticipate the premiere of season two within the next few weeks. Finally, you’ll see just how cynical the staff really are, and just how insane the head staff appear to be.
After seven years of being the friendliest community on the web, it was time for another celebration! Then about a week later it was also time for an encore celebration to go along with the first celebration!
Anyways, we celebrated and this is the aftermath of our actions.
The fine folk at Xbox and 343 Industries have revealed some fantastic news today over on Xbox Wire – let’s get right into it!
First and foremost, the Master Chief Collection has gone Gold! This means that the final ship version is complete and ready to go to production. More importantly, though, the game will be available for pre-purchase and pre-download later today!
Secondly, if you were in despair about having to wait a few days more than everyone else to get your hands on the game, you’ll likely be pleased to hear that (with a few exceptions) the MCC will now have a universal release date of November 11th! The only exceptions are Belgium, releasing on the 12th, France, releasing on the 14th, and Japan, releasing on the 13th.
Now, on a slightly different note, we also have some details on storage space required for the game. It’s no secret that there is a LOT of content in this package, and the amount of storage space you’ll need is highly representative of that. The game itself is set to take up around 45GB of storage space, with a further content update at launch that will be around 20GB. The good news is that we will be able to play campaign and more as the update installs, adding some features and multiplayer content.
Finally, fans of Halo 4’s episodic co-op mode, Spartan Ops, will have to wait until December whilst the team at 343i make some technical enhancements to it, ensuring that the mode is better and smoother than ever before. All ten episodes will be available as soon as Spartan Ops becomes available.
That’s all in today’s Wire post, less than a month until launch now!
What’s the first thing you’re going to do in the MCC?
Let us know in the comments!
343 Industries released a video where Senior Game Designer Max Szlagor walked us through through some of the new Campaign Leaderboard, Rival, and Speedrunning features in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. We also get to see Halo 4 running on the Xbox One at 1080p and 60fps for the first time!
A unified campaign scoring and medal system has been added to every game within the Master Chief Collection. Now with the user interface you will be able to check all 401 achievements, totaling 4000 gamerscore, and launch yourself directly into the appropriate place to unlock the achievement. You will also be able to set other players as your Rival and see how you stack against them in campaign scoring and speed running times for each mission.

Hello Ready Up Live! I’m the one you should always blame (apparently), but I’m also known as Josh (#1, prime, alpha. (Sorry ChiefCanuck:P)), or more commonly online as Rebel (Rouser). I’m known as Ready Up Live’s resident troll, but also, and perhaps more importantly, the Chief Executive Officer. So lets get on with it! Ask me (Almost) anything!
AMAA Rules: Use sound judgment to ask questions that are appropriate.
With less than a month until the release of The Master Chief Collection, you’d think that 343 Industries wouldn’t have many more secrets to keep, well this certainly isn’t the case as they’re still making major moves. Just this morning, through IGN First, Microsoft and 343 have announced Halo: Spartan Strike, the spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault.
Halo: Spartan Strike is set during the events of Halo 2 and will see many gameplay improvements over its predecessor including more precise grenade throwing and weapon swapping. Although, perhaps the biggest improvement to the game is the removal of Microtransactions, meaning you’ll no longer need to pay to beat the game on legendary difficulty!
Halo: Spartan Strike will be available on December 14 for all Windows 8 devices and Steam.
