Halo The MC Collection Replay

Halo The MC Collection Replay

Since we posted direct feed videos of Halo: The Master Chief Collection a few hours ago, we didn't expect a lot of people to follow our livestream tonight, especially since we always follow the NDA rules, unlike others it seems. That being said, we still wanted to try out our own livestream system at 60 fps to see how it would hold up for you guys. Image quality is quite bad as we had to make compromises because our computer didn't handle it very well when using better quality settings. It shouldn't be an issue for too long as we have plans to buy a new PC dedicated to capture and livestreams. Anyhow, to make it up for the low quality of the replays (French and English), we've added two last videos of the campaign of Halo 2: Anniversary showing the second part of the Gravemind mission.

Is it possible to get that Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Trailer thats going around? Sure, I could download it from YouTube but im looking for the 60fps version.

Even ported to current gen hardware I find those purple environments in the Gameplay 2 and 3 videos still rather dull and uninteresting. The indoor level design in Halo 1 and 2 singleplayer was really atrocious.

I'd love that too. 60fps or not (are the CGI cinematics really 60fps? The one in the other article wasn't:, a version without artifacts and with preserved details would be great. Youtube is even more painful to watch when the content looks so cool.

... aaaand you think so because... ?
Remember that gamersyde encodes 60fps video because the consoles output 60fps signals even though the frame updates might not be 60fps. So the framerate of the video file is no indication. I can clearly see that in the one video I linked to, the CGI animation plays at 30fps, and it is reasonable to assume that the others are no different. If you can't see it with your eyes, go through it with a frame step (pause and press "E" in VLC, for example) and you'll see that every other frame is a duplicate.

Brilliant stuff guys, thanks for all these HQ vids and the streams!!
The wait for this game has become even harder. :)

No the CG videos are not 60 fps.

That beard bastard looks like Kilrathi.

Thanks for clearing that up. Do you know exactly what the rate of the CG is?
Commented on 2014-10-30 20:59:40 In reply to timotim
Nope, sorry. :)

I would assume 24-30fps.

So would you guys say Halo 3 is the worst looking of the bunch?

I see a lot of ugly aliasing in Halo 2. Its too bad they wouldn't give an option to disable the switching feature for another 600 lines of resolution..

    Melmoth @droezelke: i know some people say there's no point in having an xbox if you have windows 10, and at the same time say they would never use windows store. <brainfart> (9 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @aphex187: Of games out now, i'm more interested in some of the Switch exclusives than the PS4 ones. for Xbox,you're covered if you have a good pc, use windows store and don't play in your livingroom. (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: why "exclusives". are you talking about games like gears4 and forza that are on Xbox and windows store, or console exclusives like cuphead that are also on steam? (15 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: sssst, if you say here that the Switch doesn't sell well, you get butchered... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @aphex187: if i was in the market to play MS's "exclusives" at this point i'd definitely build a PC to access them. especially if you're looking for graphical superiority. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @KORNdog: If you are a pc gamer and fancy a console then PS4 is the only real option to take. Absolutely pointless me buying an XBOX when all their exclusives come to pc anyway. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog like, i expected switch especially to be taking way more wins per month than it has done. i thought it was flying off shelves? (3 Hours ago)
