Play Sea of Thieves and Halo: Reach for pennies Game Pass is only 1 right now

I ve been spending the past few weeks playing co-op games with my BFF. I wanted to try Sea of Thieves, because when I m not dreaming of being an astronaut, I m dreaming of being a pirate. Being Scottish, I suggested we use Game Pass, Microsoft s games subscription service, and was surprised to see that it was only 1. Then I was surprised to see that the next renewal date for my sub is April. Score! It s a holiday discount, so you ll probably need to be super quick, and though it claims…

How does Halo Reach on PC improve over Xbox 360?

It's been a long wait but Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally coming to PC. At X019 last week, Microsoft confirmed that the planned episodic roll-out of the collection is set to kick off on December 3rd with the arrival of Halo: Reach. We went hands-on with the port at the event, grabbed a bunch of capture and dug deep into the settings menus. We also spotted the intriguing addition of an 'enhanced mode' that uses the extra power of modern hardware to further upgrade the Reach experience…

Halo: Reach will let you bypass anti-cheat so you can use mods

One of the most exciting things about Halo: The Master Chief Collection's imminent arrival on PC, starting with Reach today, is that the modders will be able to get their hands on it. While 343 Industries confirmed mod support earlier in the year, it won't be ready for launch, but in the meantime there's a solution that will allow you to muck around in the campaign and custom modes. In the Halo subreddit's recent Weekly Discussion (cheers ResetEra), a 343 employee clarified that, while official mod…

Halo: Reach brings the series back to PC with a mostly fantastic port

Five years ago, Microsoft released Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One, uniting nearly the entire Halo series in one mammoth game. It was a disaster. The collection was so buggy and broken, Halo developer 343 Industries has spent the past few years fixing its many, many issues. Today that apology tour finally arrives on PC with Halo: Reach, the 2019 release of a 2010 Xbox 360 game. I played it on Steam alongside 140,000 other people who are, clearly, excited to play a Halo game on PC…

5 reasons why Reach is the best Halo game

I can t help but love Halo. It s one of the few things that lodged firmly enough in my teenage heart to build itself a permanent nest there, and it still comes and goes freely, even though the iron gate of age has barred so much else from getting in. Ever since 2001, when I saved to buy an OG Xbox purely for the sake of playing Combat Evolved, I ve gotten needlessly excited about playing each new release on launch day. I was also the guy Nate wrote this article about. Over the last eighteen…

Wot I Think: Halo: Reach

I’m bad at liking old shooters, because I struggle to see through the ways they’ve been surpassed. Modern games look better. They feel better. They have bumslides. They are generally obliged to develop their protagonists into something more than a number and a helmet. These are all problems for the nine-year-old Halo: Reach, but I’ve ultimately…
