Master Chief investigates a large room with pretty lights

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Wednesday to update readers on what I've been playing during the week (this also includes games on my "Pile of Shame"). The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 60%

My wife and I have progressed a bit more in the co-op campaign and Captain Keyes has unleashed some kind of enemy known as the Flood that can affect Humans as well as Covenant alike. One of the levels we played was really poorly designed by today's standards: it basically felt like you were re-entering the same room over and over again. The layout never changed as if Master Chief had become the protagonist of "Groundhog Day". Thankfully we managed to get through it all. I also don’t like the fact that cutscene videos within the game as well as Cortana’s voice seem to be quite a bit softer than the volume for everything else in the game, and there doesn’t appear to be any way to turn on subtitles, at least not in this iteration of Halo.

Okay I just double checked, apparently there is a way of enabling it in Halo: Combat Evolved but apparently not with Halo 2 and 3 which is disappointing. I'm not the only one that has issues in hearing what some of the main characters are saying!
