Podtacular 459: Out with the New, In with the Old

January 26th, 2015 by theguardians@podtacular.com (Dust Storm)

Download
Halo 5 has come to a close, which means we’re shifting our focus back to The Master Chief Collection.  A patch was recently released, but still leaves the collection in a broken state.  There is another update on the way with changes so great it’s having it’s own beta!  The update has been delayed from it’s weekend release, but according to a vague statement from Frankie, it may be very soon.  In the same statement, Frankie continues to battle the adverse backlash of fans in response to the current state of the Master Chief Collection.  In another article that continues the recent writings in response to faulty game launches, IGN has a new editorial on how gamers can help put a stop to broken shipped games.  Next week, we will have our Halo 5 beta analysis and looking to have some special guests on.

The power of branding

January 22nd, 2015 by halo@bungie.org
Heh - The Guardian has noticed that Microsoft is playing off the popularity of the Halo franchise in other aspects of their product empire... and jumped in to help. Their suggestion for a Garageband competitor is awesome.(Louis Wu 19:17:23 UTC)

Mid-air turret ramming

January 21st, 2015 by halo@bungie.org
Hmm... that title sounds vaguely pornographic. Don't worry - it's not. Rockslider returned to the Dropship Turret Removal technique he played with a while back (1 | 2 | 3 | 4), discovering that the turret is rammable in mid-air, leading to some interesting fun! Take a look.(Louis Wu 21:30:23 UTC)
