GSY Video Xbox One

We have been among the lucky ones to receive an Xbox One X beforehand, something like 4 days ago. it didn't leave us much time to download the games and record some gameplay footage, but we did our best as usual. Inside, you'll find a bunch of videos showing titles that have already been updated with their Xbox One X patch. Most of them are Xbox One games obviously, but we also have 3 iconic 360 titles to show you with a massive bump in resolution. Finally, we have tried the first Project CARS to see what forced v-sync and anisotropic filtering can do to a game that hasn't been patched for Xbox One X. If you want to compare, see the last base Xbox One footage we captured back in 2015.
Note: Some games are yet to receive their Xbox One X update, so we'll try to be thorough and propose more videos later.

GSY Review Xbox One

After completing the campaign of Halo 5: Guardians in heroic mode on our own (despite one co-op mission along the way) and after playing both Arena and Warzone modes in multiplayer, we can now tell you what we think about 343 Industries' new game. Again, we're sorry we haven't had the time and patience to translate the full review for you guys, but we hope the few videos we've added and the usual verdict and +/- section will suffice.

To continue our video spree of Halo 5: Guardians, today we offer you some mutiplayer videos, for now only in Arena mode (4vs4), we couldn't play any Warzone games yet (12vs12). You'll notice on our FPS Analysis videos that the game keeps really well its 60 FPS target.

While the embargo for reviews will only lift on Monday, a good number of people have managed to find a copy of Halo 5: Guardians at their local retailer. Since we're now done with Assassin's Creed, we could find a bit of time to capture Mission 8 to show it to you guys since it was allowed in the NDA. As you'll see, it gets a bit tougher in heroic mode and we'll definitely have to thank the magic of editing to be able to get you some proper videos. Still, we did a pretty good job overall, as proven with the 3 foloowing extracts.

GSY Video Xbox One

Second day of Gamersyde coverage of Halo 5 Guardians with a new batch of 1080p/60fps videos of one of the most anticipated games of this year on Xbox One. After yesterday's footage, we're giving you the highlights of mission 2 and mission 3, but also two new FPS Analysis videos to prove how talented 343 Industries are. As a reminder, all the following videos were captured in heroic mode.

As promised, here is a first batch of direct feed videos of Halo 5: Guardians captured in heroic mode. We haven't been able to replay the two sequences featuring the Hunters yet so it's hard to be sure that the challenge isn't going to rise up, but so far, the game isn't too challenging in this difficulty setting. It is however true that it is only the beginning of the adventure so we won't jump to conclusions. More footage of Mission 2 and 3 will come today or tomorrow, and we'll also have some gameplay videos of Mission 8 as soon as possible in the days to come. Until then, enjoy the following videos, but keep in mind that there are obviously minor SPOILERS.

GSY Live Xbox One

We've just finished downloading our review version of Halo 5: Guardians, sent by Microsoft of course, and it's with great pleasure that we will do a live stream of the game tonight at 10:15 PM (CET). We will try and show the first 3 levels of the campiagn, so come and join us!
Update 2: Contrary to what we thought, we didn't play in heroic mode during the English livestream. The difficulty setting was reinitialized after we resumed our game instead of starting mission 1 again. We then played in normal mode, hence the lack of challenge. The direct feed videos we captured this morning were in heroic mode though, but you'll have to wait a bit to see them, later today.

    jmd749 @MrWhite: I see you're just as excited as me for Half Life Alyx. :) I can't freaking wait for it to release. Valve played this one quite close to the chest. It is indeed going to be revolutionary!!! (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite And those headcrabs in dark rooms are going to be fun. Fuckin hell. (16 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Imagine scrambling to reload the gun, dropping the ammo on the ground, and picking up a brick instead and bashing a combine troop with it, saving your bacon. (16 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, then, if that gameplay is indicative of what its like overall, and if the AI can react to you touching things, thus making noise or becoming visible, then its going to be revolutionary (16 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @MrWhite: ..and ofc it's the perfect opportunity for us to build Dog :) (16 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @MrWhite: they say it's a full length game like HL2 of about 13-15 hours long. And making it VR only they can take proper advantage of having hands. Hope there's many nice gameplay innovations . (16 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite The only thing I'm sort of surprised about is the lack of full body presence. Boneworks has it, and it looks like it's sharing the same kind of mechanics engine too. (17 Hours ago)
