Gaming History You Should Know – Halo…Years Later March 19, 2017

I absolutely love watching independently created video game retrospectives, and recently I have been addicted to watching the …Years After video series produced by Raycevick.  The series was originally released on the COGconnected YouTube Channel, but it has now become a staple of Raycevick’s personal YouTube Channel, and new episodes are being released on a regular basis.

In this unique series, Raycevick looks at every single part of a game, and talks about what worked and what doesn’t work. Whenever he can, he will shed some light on the history behind the game’s development to try to figure out why a game has turned out the way it has, and if it still holds up so many years later.

So without further ado, here is his analysis of the first Halo game, Halo: Combat Evolved.

Here’s his analysis of its sequel and my personal favorite game in the franchise, Halo 2.

Here’s his video about Halo 3.

After he concluded his look at the original Halo trilogy, he talked about the other two Halo games produced by Bungie, and the first was Halo 3: ODST.

The final game produced by Bungie Studios, Halo Reach.

Now we are going to get into the work done by 343 Industries, here’s his look at Halo 4.

And most recently, here’s his in-depth analysis of Halo 5: Guardians.

If you’re a fan of Raycevick’s videos, I recommend checking out his official YouTube Channel to watch his new analysis on the Mass Effect Trilogy!  With the imminent release of the new Mass Effect game, Mass Effect Andromeda, this is the best time to give those videos a watch.

We are back and resuming our Let’s Play of the PS2 classic Final Fantasy X.  In Part 14, we take a peek at Maniac’s Final Fantasy collection as we catch butterflies, and later battle through the snow.

Apologies in advance for this next part, it took me five attempts to defeat the boss.

Now with that out of the way, let’s make our way out of the mountains to find ourselves crossing the desert in a way that would make Frank Herbert happy.

Patch 1.12 is a small update, weighing in at only 132MB on the PS4.  Currently, no patch notes are available for the update, so we can only assume it comes with minor bug fixes.
