Halo: Nightfall Blu-Ray Disc Unboxing March 17, 2015

Late last year, Microsoft wanted to release a live action feature that set up the backstory of a new character that is planned to appear in Halo 5: Guardians and it was called Halo: Nightfall.  Produced by Ridley Scott’s production company, Scott Free, Halo: Nightfall was a five-part miniseries which was offered as an extra bonus feature for anyone who picked up a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One.

However, for some reason that completely escapes me, Microsoft chose not to include the series on Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s game disc, instead requiring viewers to stream it through the newly released Halo Channel.  Now, while that application has a great selection of unique programming, because it is a streaming service it has completely failed to provide a consistent quality since November 2014.  In the times I have tried to use it, I have had experiences where the feature would drop in quality without warning, or the Halo Channel would deny me access to watching the film for no reason at all.  Also, the series’ episodic nature made it really easy to predict what would be happening in later episodes just by watching the “Next Time, On Halo: Nightfall” short at the end of each episode.  It’s a really frustrating experience overall, made worse when up until today, there was no other alternative if you wanted to watch the film.

Halo: Nightfall has now been edited from a five part miniseries into a feature length film and was released today on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc.  Now, we’re going to unbox the Blu-Ray version of Halo: Nightfall, a disc that should have been released with Halo: The Master Chief Collection in the first place, and see if it’s worth picking up.

One of the most anticipated games to be released in 2013 was the multiplatform title Bioshock Infinite.

The third game in the Bioshock franchise, Bioshock Infinite sent players to Columbia, a technologically advanced city in the clouds.  The city itself is run by ideologically driven founders who believed that America was great the way it was founded, and that none of the changes made in the past two hundred years should have ever been changed.  Your mission is to find and rescue a mysterious girl named Elizabeth, who has powers she is only beginning to understand.

If you haven’t given this game a chance yet, you really need to rectify that, and now thanks to Microsoft’s Games With Gold Promotion, Xbox Live Gold Members with an Xbox 360 will be able to purchase and download a digital copy of the game right now completely free of charge if you’re a Gold Member.

As with all games offered through Games with Gold on the Xbox 360, once you download your game, it will remain playable in your download list forever, even if your Xbox Live Gold Subscription expires.
