when CE launched this morning I just had to download a ~650MB update for MCC on steam and then install another 6.70GB in-game for the CE campaign + multiplayer

steam is saying MCC is using 32066 MB disk space right now but I have Reach and CE both installed

holy wow this campaign is so fucking bad, i feel like im missing an inside joke at microsoft or something.

1. audio is broken. plasma pistol in particular; if you fire multiple shots in a row it'll start making the "full charge" noise for like 3 seconds. several weapons have some variation of this bug. also the audio balancing is terrible, with some lines being almost too quiet to hear, and others being meme-level earrape. also im pretty sure they replaced some sounds? plasma rifle and sniper in particular sound different than i remember, dont really have a kick to them anymore. why would you change these.
2. camera. shake. everywhere. holy god just firing the assault rifle is giving me a headache. even when youre driving the warthog and the braindead ai is firing the gun the camera has a little seizure.
3. audio bad
4. new graphics, while higher poly count, seem like a downgrade. these are parts where the lip syncing is like watching a badly dubbed foreign film. lots of weirdly annoying things too, like the doors in the truth and reconciliation dont flash when they open. also the flashlight bounces everywhere, really useless. super inconsistent framerate, and i dont think it's my pc, it's just something the game does, since it's particularly bad during cutscenes. fps is great during big firefights though lol
5. audio. so. bad.
6. jackal shield hitboxes aren't lined up correctly. this was not a problem in reach. also i could pause during cutscenes in reach, why cant i do so here?
7. im like an hour in and i actually have to quit this game because of the audio, holy shit i have a headache now

why the fuck did i pay $10 for this instead of just replaying my pirated halo ce that works perfectly from like 5 years ago? is this supposed to be a beta version of the game still? they havent done anything whatsoever to fix the issues of the old game, i dont understand what was so complicated about copy/pasting the new coat of paint they gave the game on the xbox years ago over to pc

also i just found a really surreal little cutscene in the truth and reconciliation: get to the bridge and hit e on the flashing red panel and you get this insanely awkward fanfic-tier cutscene of 343 talking to... i think it's a convenant ai? it's totally out of the blue and you can just activate it in the middle of combat, no context, its really really strange

atleast we're one more halo closer to 2 and 3

dishsoapsir... thats a terminal...

Its been like a decade but i remember the terminals from halo 3 being text based and actually making contextual sense, like it was something chief was reading. These cutscenes are totally random and its not clear at all what its supposed to be, or why youre seeing it.

Also its not just jackal hitboxes that are fuck, ive started switching back and forth between new and old graphics a lot, and in a lot of cases the geometry of the new environments dont line up with the old, but the hitboxes are based on the old. So much trying to shoot around cover and just having 0 success. Its like they dont even want you to play with the new graphics. Cant wait to fight wraiths and to see them all have empty turrets because they were too lazy to update the model based on CE and just pasted the one from halo 3. Save your money. Pirate og CE.

also the audio mixing is utter trash, jesus fucking christ microsoft

the mp sound is really bad too I don't remember not being able to hear where I was getting shot from? at a distance the sniper is 100% silent so u can just straight take body shot damage from across the map without any explanation + the hit reg is super fucked I have no clue if it was ping or what but it's impossible to hit a player falling off a ledge.

did the pistol normally having awful spread after your like 5th shot? i think this thing was a monster at all ranges. I remember playing ce on PC ages ago getting destroyed by ppl across the map with magnum. unless they were spread hacking lol

aside from the sound problems at least co-op is really smooth and enjoyable, idk the exact frames I'm getting but it feels like 200+ especially on default graphics (what i prefer) and the animations are a lot smoother than i remembered them being.

something is 100% off with the magnum

noob comboing elites is the goto for legendary campaign playthroughs but even the first shots have wack inaccuracy

Ive got to say im really disappointed, both in the campaign and multiplayer. Its pretty sad that the revamped version isnt anywhere as good as the original pc port. I don't get how they can mess it up this badly.

dont get me wrong, thats shitty too, but that part where you come out and watch them fight while listening to "ONLY THE STRONGEST WILL SURVIIIVE" was seared into my 12 year old brain. i guess its silly, but i was literally playing through the level getting psyched up for that part, even though i dont even listen to that kind of music anymore.

idk man. just another iconic moment ruined by the remaster.

Yeah, this was the first tune I heard whilst playing H2A and actually had to stop and find what it was, because it rocks.

Really hope they add an option for input-based matchmaking soon. h3 is fun, but it can be really frustrating playing against controller players that consistently 4-shot with BR due to aim assist. Aim assist is extremely strong.
