  5. GameRadar sat down with 343's franchise director Frank O'Connor to discuss topics relating to Halo 5: Guardians for a live stream interview. During the interview a question was raised regarding the possibility of Halo 5 being brought over to PC which O'Connor states that "There is plenty of chance Halo 5 could appear on the PC". He went on to say "Nothing to announce at this point, but it’s absolutely within the bounds of reason." Many PC gaming enthusiast Halo fans have asked for PC releases since the announcement of Halo 3 as Halo 2 was the last major title to release on PC Since then the only Halo titles that have released world wide on PC have been Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike. But there is Halo Online, however Halo Online seems it will only available in Russia, but it's unknown if it will stay in Russia. In the interview Frank O'Connor stated "We developed the game on an Intel platform. It wouldn’t be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff. But nothing to announce today." The next title confirmed for PC is Halo Wars 2, which was announced in August and is set for a 2016 release.

  11. Game Rant spoke to Halo 5's creative director, Tom Longo, at Microsoft's X15 event and asked if fans will finally get to see Master Chiefs face in the upcoming Halo game, Halo 5: Guardians. Sadly for some, it won't be happening. Tom Longo confirmed that he will have his helmet on at all times in Halo 5. For now Halo 4's legendary ending will be the closest we will ever get to see what Mr. John 117 will look like. If you remember (and I'm sure you do) players only got to see the Chief's eyes before the screen abruptly goes to black, leaving fans teased and curious. Although we do know what John looked as a kid from other Halo media such as the Halo: Fall of Reach- Boot Camp graphic novel, where a kid John 117 posed on the front cover of the comic. We also seen him as a child in Halo 4's live action trailer . So for now Chief's helmet is going to be firmly on in Halo 5: Guardians and his face will be well hidden for another while. Do you think Master Chief's face will be shown at some point in the future? Would you like to finally see what he looks like once and for all, or do would want him to be kept as a faceless hero? Leave a comment below and tell us what you think.
  12. As you all know Microsoft announced backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One at this years E3 event. Since then the number of 360 titles that have finally became playable has grown, but bear in mind non preview members cannot have access to this feature until the third quarter of the year. Here is the current list of all the Xbox 360 games that are playable on the Xbox One to date: • A Kingdom of Keflings • A World of Keflings • Alien Hominid • Banjo-Kazooie • Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts • Banjo-Tooie • BattleBlock Theater • Defense Grid: The Awakening • Gears of War • Hexic HD • Jetpac Refuelled • Kameo • Mass Effect • N+ • Perfect Dark • Perfect Dark Zero • Shadow Complex • Small Arms • Super Meat Boy • Toy Soldiers • Toy Soldiers Cold War • Viva Pinata • Viva Pinata Trouble in Paradise​ Other titles such as Gears of War 2, 3 and Judgment and Fallout 3 are confirmed to be included later down the line. Also looking at the image above it is safe to assume those other titles will be added to the list. Again backwards compatibility is only accessible for preview members and will made available to everyone this fall. You can let Microsoft know what games you'd like to see on the list by heading over to xbox.uservoice.com. What 360 games would you like to see compatible with the Xbox One? Source: Gamespot

  15. New features for the Xbox on the new Windows 10 OS have been revealed. Earlier this year Microsoft announced their plans to integrate the Xbox One with their new operating system Windows 10. They announced a new experience with both Xbox One and Windows 10 by revealing new content such as streaming games to the PC and Windows 10 devices, cross platform features/gameplay and DVR. But they have just announced more features (focusing more on accessibility and activity) that will be rolling out this month. These features will focus on things such as accessing Xbox accounts, sharing content with friends and accessing games. Here is the official list containing the latest collection of features: My Games – As you install games from the Windows Store, they will appear in your My Games list. Additionally, you can manually add games to your collection by selecting My games > Add a game from your PC. Also, there is now a Featured games section on the home screen, below your Recently played list. Game hubs – You can now launch a local PC game from its game hub, view details about the game in the Windows Store, and find and follow People to Watch for a given game. Additionally, for Xbox One games, you can now choose Play from console to initiate a game streaming session from a game hub page. Share with your friends – You can share your achievements to your Activity feed and Showcase just like you do on Xbox One. You can also share your Xbox One Game clips or Screenshots listed under Game DVR > Shared to your Activity Feed and Showcase. Xbox avatars – We renamed the Avatars app on Windows 10 to Xbox Avatars and the layout and iconography have been updated to final designs. In this month’s preview, there is a “Take a photo” feature so you can pose your avatar and snap a photo. Xbox account – In preview, you can sign in to Xbox on Windows 10 with any account, and create a new Xbox account if you do not already have one. To access all the Xbox features on Windows 10 users will need to install Build 10158 of the operating system when it launches July 29th. Xbox on Windows 10 trailer revealed earlier this year. What's your thoughts of Microsoft's integration of Xbox and Windows 10? Source: majornelson.com
  16. One of the things that got Xbox fans excited was the announcement of backwards compatibility for the Xbox One. Head of Xbox Phil Spenser made the announcement earlier today during Microsoft's E3 briefing. Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra then came on to the stage to announce that Xbox One users can access their digital library of Xbox 360 games, as well as being able to insert their disks into the drive of the Xbox One. But there seems to be some limitations to this, on the Xbox website it states that not all games will work with this feature. “The digital titles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalog will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox One. For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalog, simply insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. After the game has finished downloading, you will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.” Mike announced that there will be around 100 titles available to play at the launch of the new service and more will come later down the line. This looks to be similar to the Xbox 360's backwards compatibility feature with original Xbox games where only selected titles were included and the rest were locked out. Mass Effect was used as an example of an Xbox 360 game that would be compatible on the Xbox One as they showed off a quick demo, so that was the first title to be confirmed that will be playable on the Xbox One. Mike also announced that those who are a member of the preview program will get early access to the feature starting today, and it will then become available to everyone else this holiday. Xbox.com provides the current list of the titles that are compatible with the Xbox One, more will be added at later times. Here is the announcement that was uploaded to YouTube by Kotaku What do you think of this new feature? Leave a comment below.

  18. Tell me about it this is driving me nuts. I'll have a look at that forum and see what people have been saying and hopefully get it sorted once and for all. Thanks a lot Twin I appreciate the help.
  19. I have a Lenovo G500 laptop with windows 8.1, I got the laptop just over a year ago and I have been having problems with the sound ever since. The laptop came with Conexant SmartAudio HD audio driver and around once or twice a day (sometimes more) there would randomly be no sound when I go on youtube or something. For some reason no sound would come from the video. I have tried updating the driver, I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but nothing works. The only way I can get it to work is to disable the driver, re-enable it then restart the laptop. I was thinking it could be a hardware issue but I downloaded another audio driver (Realtek I think it was) to replace the faulty one and I had no problems with it. The reason I went back to the Conexant driver is because it has better sound quality. Is there way I can fix this or even download another driver that has good sound quality?
