I was watching my little sister playing Viva Pianta from Rare Replay. Rare did a really good job with this game. Although it is a game from 2006, it looks gorgeous even today! It is in Nintendo level when it comes to how good it looks. You can play this game 20 years from now and it will still be lovely, and fun to play.
Microsoft should revive this franchise this generation. Maybe 2017!

 

Talking about Rare, there lineup on Xbox 360 early years was really good. 

2005: Kameo

2006: Viva Pianta

2007: Viva Pianta: Trouble in Paradise

2008: Banjo-Kazoiee: Nuts and Bolts

This lineup is a lot better than what gamers give them credit for.

Halo 5: Guardians Limited Editions And Hardware Detailed

Available on:

Ready to dive in to Halo 5: Guardians but don’t know where to start? Fear not Spartan, because 343 Industries’ Josh Holmes and I have joined together to talk about all the latest Halo 5 goodness releasing this year.


View on YouTube

 

For starters, the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition comes with a physical copy of the game packaged in a beautiful SteelBook that looks like it dropped straight out of the Halo universe. Also included are Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders as well as dossiers for both Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris, a Metal Earth model of a Guardian, the Warzone REQ Bundle which includes 14 Premium REQ Packs, and Halo: The Fall of Reach – Animated Series. If you don’t know what REQ Packs are or how the REQ System works in Halo 5: Guardians, then head over to the School of REQ for a crash course with Mister Chief.

The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition comes with everything listed in the Limited Edition, but with a digital copy of the game so you can pre-download starting on October 20. It also includes a commemorative statue of the Master Chief and Spartan Locke, which actually splits in two and can be reconfigured.

For fans who are ready to dive in to Halo 5: Guardians but don’t have an Xbox One yet, you’ll want to check out the Limited Edition Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Bundle available on October 20. Inside the bundle is a 1TB, custom designed Xbox One with looks and sound inspired by Halo 5: Guardians – that includes the limited edition Halo 5: Guardians wireless controller inspired by Spartan Locke and UNSC technology. The bundle also includes a digital copy of Halo 5: Guardians along with all of the collectible items included with the Limited Edition plus access to the FOTUS-class armor, a fan favorite, and Vanguard multiplayer emblem.

 

We mentioned the Spartan Locke controller that’s packaged in the Halo 5: Guardians Xbox One bundle, but what about fans of the Master Chief? Fret not, because there’s also a limited edition Master Chief controller and both controllers are available separately – each coming with a unique visor to customize your Spartan in Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer modes. For those who demand better audio, look (or hear) no further than Astro’s Halo 5: Guardians­-inspired A40’s, which have a custom finish that matches the Halo 5: Guardians wireless controller and Xbox One bundle.

Halo 5: Guardians launches on Oct. 27, 2015.

I still don't understand the "here's a steelbook without the physical game" thing.

Anyone want to try to take on my time from " time to shine" ?

I would if I had a wheel. F1 car is far too twitchy playing with a controller. Very nice lap though!



Post your impressions on racing wheels, I pretend to get back to racing games and I'm really interested in investing on a wheel.

I want opinions from you racing fans. I'd appreciate if others chime in as well.

Don't buy the Madcatz racing wheel. It's pretty much junk and I'm returning mine and will get the Thrust master TX to replace it. Which from What I read is the best budget wheel out for the Xbox one right now. And it's got plenty of upgrade options. If you really want to invest then I'd look a Fanatec. That's if you got about 1200 to blow. 

 

I Improved my time some more. I'm sitting at #12 in the U.S. I didn't realize that wasn't the world wide board that I posted. So I got about 20 more spots to go to make it in the top 20 WW.

Thanks for the tips



One month to go for those who pre-ordered the Halo 5 Xbox One Edition and the Collectors Edition.



Proud to be a Californian.

I'm so glad Halo 5 is switching to 4 person squad command gameplay. It's a big change for the franchise but mixing it up seems like the smart thing to do.



Just bought Rare Replay digitaly but I didn't know you had to download each games separately... do you have to download the games if you bought the disc?



Oh wow iceland wasn't exaggerating about this thread being slow at times.

 

Here's some news for you guys.
