Went to the gym, flipped a few tanks and came home to see this...
It's nice seeing some
of the wishlist features people came up with (I'm sure a lot of individuals in-studio personally want them too) being mentioned. It's expected that you all instudio see it (obviously, a post was made asking for requests - by you actually), but just seeing a visual confirmation by post from someone official (again, by you! :O) is nice, as we're not left wondering.
- Custom Game Browser
- UI / Menu refresh
- New XP / Ranking / Progression system
- File share / File Browser (gotta convince them to take notes from H3's, but just bigger... Or Reach's... But 3 visually was so satisfyingly simple)
- “Party Up” system
- Join Session in Progress
(ODST Firefight & Reach (if this ever comes to be, you guys are insane lol. So many games) was nice too, but if people are requesting than any fixes or core features, I personally would like to BXR them)
A friend of mine just recently (within the past couple of months) was saying he'd like to only install select games within the collection (I'm keeping them all, as each had (and most still have) their own place for me - majority more than other... We discussed the possibility of a plan of having the initial MCC install, then adding from there... Which is crazy (I guess how else would you do it though...?) as that's the plan in place (just cool from a consumer perspective who was looking into the future of the game without any official word of knowing).
TL;DR: All in all, good -Blam!- A lot of "I wonder if they'll..." was taken out of the equation, as most was confirmed as being planned or is of concern. I'm trying to maintain the "neutral" mentality, until things are available in-front of me, on my TV, but can't help but get extremely excited as a fan. Still neutral though. Just extremely-excited-neutral.
In honour of the "clean-up" effort to get MCC in tip-top shape, I propose 'Project Beamish' as the code name going forward :P
Also, very encouraging to read Jeremy Cook's comments on visual updates to the game.
Also how can you say no to this? It's pretty much already confirmed at this point. Right? Right. Please? Please.
