Are you Froyton on Xbox live?

I'm definitely still up for playing through the Halo series with you. I don't get a lot of time between work and school, but I can find some time.

I know i'm not Jo Nathan, but if I ever could find some time I would be down for some co-op. I still need to beat Halo 5 co-op legendary.

Do you have MCC? It's a lot of fun to run through on co-op. There are a lot of things to collect, and a lot of achievements.

But we could do Halo 5 too. For achievement purposes you only have to go through co-op on Heroic FYI. Not sure if that matters to you. But it makes getting a lot of the level-specific achievements easier along the way.

Does 5 have 4-player co-op? I don't think I ever bothered playing through it again after my first run. Wouldn't mind playing it sometime.

Yes it does. Story aside, the gameplay itself is still a lot of fun in the campaign. They've also added some score / time achievements.

We could try to set a date. How does this Friday or Saturday night work for you guys? Most likely I wouldn't be able to play until later in evening, around 9 or 10 pm Central.

"Do you have MCC?"

Yup, got it on launch and suffered through the brokeness until they finally fixed it. Got the ODST DLC for free because of it so i can't complain.

"But we could do Halo 5 too. For achievement purposes you only have to go through co-op on Heroic FYI. Not sure if that matters to you."

There is no Co-op legendary achievement? I should have looked that up. Heroic would be alot easier during the damn warden fights. Fighting 3 of them, plus all the soldiers on legendary was not fun lol.

" How does this Friday or Saturday night work for you guys? Most likely I wouldn't be able to play until later in evening, around 9 or 10 pm Central."

I'll see what I can do and let you guys know.

I noticed a strange "1" in the upper-right corner of the page and I clicked on it and it brought me here so I think it sorta worked but maybe not the way it's supposed to?

Sorry, I didn't see this thread until just now. I am Froyton on Xbox Live but my wife is the one with the gold subscription so I think I'd show up under her name. I'll find out what it is and send it to you on Skype.

So I learned that you can have multiple screen names on one account so she's going to set it up for me tomorrow. She's not keen on me using her screen name.

@Johan-Sensei:

If you already have an XBOX Live account already, you can import it to the X1 with your wife's gold account. Log into your wife's account and go to family and sharing and add your account to that. Then when you log into your account you will be able to play online and be able to share her games with gold games.

That k/d is precious man!

Like Q said, as long as your accounts are all on the same Xbox you should all have access to the same content.

Did you find out if you can play tomorrow night or saturday?

@Vandy:

I'm going to try. it really just depends on how fast I can get a 6 page Server Deployment Proposal written for my Installing and Configuring Windows Server class. I have barely started it and it's due Sunday night. So I'll try for tonight but most likely it will be tomorrow night that I will be able to get on.

Installing and Configuring Windows Server class.

Is this MCSA related, or does it just have a similar name?

@Vandy: I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to join you guys in Halo 5 since I'm still working on finishing Halo 3. I'm also curious to see how nice the first two games look remastered... Would you want to jump into the older games with me sometime or do you want to wait for me to catch up to Halo 5?

@Jo Nathan:
Oh no man I love finding an excuse to play through the old Halo games! CE and 2 look really nice in their anniversary touch-ups.

I've got school work to do most of today and I told Dooku I would play with him tonight and maybe Q if he's available but we can plan for some time next week. I have about an hour of time to play most week nights and a bit more time on weekend nights. When can you play?

Posted February 25th by Vandy
Vandy

I can set aside time just about any week night after 7 EST, and weekends are usually fine too. How do you feel about Monday or Tuesday?

Posted February 25th by Johan-Sensei
Johan-Sensei

That works but the problem is I'm in Central time and I have to play later around 9 to 11. Which would be pretty late for you I'm guessing.

Posted February 25th by Vandy
Vandy

It's actually not too bad, but I'd have to cut off at around 10:30 (11:30 for me).

Posted February 25th by Johan-Sensei
Johan-Sensei

Alright, I'll shoot for 9pm Central on Monday. Starting with CE. Are you able to play on Legendary? Asking because a lot of the skulls to find only appear on Legendary. It's fine if you can't though. :p

"Is this MCSA related, or does it just have a similar name? "

It's for my networking and cyber security degree.

I'll be on tonight. Got my schoolwork done for the week.

I've actually gotten through about half the missions in CE on Legendary but I could never finish. I should at least be able to handle Pillar of Autumn so we could start out with Legendary and see how things go after that, but I have to be upfront- I may end up sucking pretty bad.

That sucks. Hopefully it comes back on its own. If it doesn't, I'll use tonight to de-rust and we can reschedule.

Who's your ISP Vandy? I use Verizon, and never really had any problems.

Spectrum / TWC

This is maybe the second or third time it's ever happened so it's not a common issue. I think it may be related to some storms we had last night and earlier today. The modem can't get a signal from them even after unplugging, resetting, and all that wonderful stuff.

Awful timing since I've been trying to play with Jo Nathan for about a year now!

Posted March 5th by Johan-Sensei

Okay. I've got some work to do especially since this is the last week of class and this week ends early on Friday. But I may have an hour or two before bed. I'll let you know.

Posted March 5th by Vandy

Hay Vandy, would you have time/be up for some Halo this weekend?

Posted March 16th by Johan-Sensei
Johan-Sensei

Yeah I've got a lot more time for the next few weeks before my class starts up again. Friday night and saturday are both open for me.

Posted March 16th by Vandy

Sweet. Any time in particular work best for you? Because I can play just about any time those days.

Posted March 16th by Johan-Sensei

Tonight I'm watching a movie with my wife after work but that should be done around 9pm. I think I'll be available after that.

@Vandy:

Sure can. Let me know when and I'll be there.

Posted April 2nd by Johan-Sensei
Johan-Sensei

That was a fun level. One of my favorite things about the Halo remasters is that they added in the extra content like skulls and speedruns to alter the way you would normally play. Like squeezing a warthog into all of the narrow corridors via grenade explosions and strange physics.

Posted April 3rd by Vandy
Vandy

Yeah, that was really neat. And those grenade jumps.... There can't be too many developers who realize after the fact that players are doing all these neat tricks, and then not only do they keep in the tricks for the remasters, but they reward players for doing them.

It makes me wonder, was there a particular way Bungie expected players to get the scarab gun at the top of that building in Halo 2? Or was that just put in for lulz and they didn't expect anyone to get to it?

Also I'm still game for tonight if you are.

Posted April 4th by Johan-Sensei
Johan-Sensei

Actually, I'm sorry but I'll have to bail tonight. I'm starting to not feel well and am going to head to bed a bit early. Let me know if there's another night this week that works for you.

Hey, I'm really sorry, I feel foolish for not seeing your message until now. It's inexcusable. I'm going to put Skype on my phone so that will be a reliable way of reaching me going forward.

No worries, I was worried you had suffered a terrible fate. I actually stopped using Skype because I thought everyone was going to start using Discord but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Posted May 1st by Vandy

No terrible fate for me, just turned into a shut-in for the past couple weeks. If you don't use skype much anymore, feel free to email me any time and I'll see it on my phone.

@Vandy:



Sorry for not being online. Let me know if you'd like to pick it up tomorrow, Friday or over the weekend. Given how long the last mission took, if we play on a night where I have to work the next day (I work M-F), I think we'd have to start at around 8-ish my time, and I'm not sure whether that works for you. My long commute forces me to get to bed earlier than I'd like.

Posted May 24th by Jo Nathan
Jo Nathan

Totally understand. I wouldn't want to start playing at 10pm either. I can do Friday night if you're available.

Posted May 24th by Vandy
Vandy

Friday works for me!

Posted May 24th by Jo Nathan

@Vandy:

If you're around Sunday and feel up to wrapping up the campaign once and for all, I'm game. Might also be available Saturday night... it depends on how long I'm stuck at a wedding reception.

Posted June 21st by Jo Nathan
Jo Nathan

I can definitely do saturday night and probably most of sunday.

Posted June 21st by Vandy
Vandy

Ah, cool. I'm sure I can do Saturday, but the time is a big unknown. Could be a normal hour, or it could be really late. We could play it by ear, unless it's easier to just plan for Sunday instead. I guess the wedding is an evening wedding (ugh) so... Saturday's probably out for me.

Edited June 21st by Jo Nathan

I knew I should have sent out my RSVPs ahead of time.
