I do not think the gameplay of Halo Online, given all the f2p shenanigans, sprint, and bloom, will be very good. But if people extract the data and make a halo 3-like game out of it, that would be cool. That is the extent of my excitement beyond the usual technical interest in a game.
Argh, Why can't 343 just port Halo 3 to PC.

It would be a good cash grab for them.

I don't think bloom is going to adversely affect the gameplay any one way or the other.

Man the thirst for Halo on PC is strong. I always knew this was gonna make it over to the states via the underground, but this is fast.

Hopefully MS takes 2 things away from this.

1) PC gaming is a world market, you cant segregate/control it via regions.
2) There is still a lot of desire for the halo FPS franchise.

They really should just port the MCC to PC right around the launch of Halo 5. Halo overload from every angle, get all of the Christmas monies.

Halo 3s internal gamebalance (albeit, with some changes) with Halo4s sound and, models, and production values would be nice. It is kinda like that right now... but with too much stuff being F2p friendly or coming from halo 4 (sprint feels really really fast).

On PC bloom isn't the worst thing on earth. True.

I would love be to a fly on the wall in the meeting when they tell the MCC team that they are now going to port the whole mess to PC.

I played around the leaked alpha. Not gunna lie. I kinda like the sprint feature on the Halo 3 maps. Makes the game feel like a better version of Destiny. But hopefully the hit detection is on par with the console Halo games. Also, I hope that the FOV can go further than 90. It hurts my eyes..

Just had a quick go, the graphics are really hold up well! Ah cant wait for this to be somewhat playable, would kill for 4player split screen, my 360 just died for the 6th time =(

Anyone know what forums this is being modded at? PM if you have info so i can follow the developments.

It ruins the maps though. Makes it too easy to get to one side to the other in seconds. It fucks with flow and will mess with spawning too.

It we get all the maps before it shuts down would it really matter? It's not like Microsoft would release a Windows update to render illegitimate copies useless.

Edit: watch them release a Windows update
LOL MS changed the filesize of 1 level in Halo 2 to make it 1 mb too big for Windows XP to run it. Just so they could make it Vista exclusive. There is nothing too shitty for MS to try.

As someone who only really played Halo 3 and didn't like Reach or 4 multiplayer ( great campaign), I cannot wait until this leak is online playable. Looks pretty great graphically so far. It would also be interesting if over time someone is able to recreate or port the campaign over as well. I also like the idea of optioning out the sprint and abilities to stay more true in mechanics.

It is using graphical effects that are above most of what the mainline halo games did last gen. It also helps quite a bit that the Halo 4 assets scale rather nicely.

I'm waiting on online play with bated breath. Was there any chatter on the IRC about progress on that front?

I am so excited for this. If it works out and gets a player base I will drop some time out of Dota to get back into Halo. The only source for updates I have found was a new forum that I was linked to from reddit. If 4chan is the main source for these short updates where is my best bet to look on there? V or vg? I don't hang there much these days.

It's happening? If they strip the F2P P2W aura weapons out, 343 will have given us the Halo 3 multiplayer PC version that people have wanted accidentally?
They literally just made it so that you could type in textboxes that have always been there. The modders already said it is nowhere near ready for multiplayer support.

Cool to see the progress on it already. Makes me wonder how far along modding for Halo 3 PC would have been if he released when we first started seeing it pop up on Steam.
