  1. Halo 2's Multiplayer Is Back And That's Not All!

    The beloved old school Halo 2 ranking system is back, and not just for Halo 2. Microsoft and Studio 343 sat down together at Gamescom and gave us some details about the MCC's multiplayer mode.

  2. No Real Changes Are To Be Made To Destiny After The BETA

    If you were hoping for some changes to be made to the full game after the BETA you may be left disappointed.

Many feel that the game is a combination between Halo and Borderlands and I would have to agree as well. I played this game the entire time it was available for the Xbox One.
