New Screenshots

Since I’m very busy with real life I rarely get to take Screenshots anymore. That makes me very sad but hey, that is how it is. As I am typing this at 7 am in the morning (I am awake since 6 am) my daughter is messing with my Halo collection in the back. She is really fascinated by the UNSC bottle opener. If that is telling me something about her future I am scared 🙂

Well here are 4 shots I managed to take lately:

Screenshots old and new – Halo 4 versus Halo: MCC

Being a screenshotter I was very disappointed by the lack of a file share on the MCC. I cannot to this day understand why 343 didn’t give the Halo community the possibility to take screenshots and upload them to your file share. That this feature wasn’t included in the beginning when all went wrong I can forgive. But now? After such a long time? Look at the difference from Halo 4 to MCC below. You have two Halo 4 screenshots and then several Halo MCC shots from Halo 2: Anniversary. There you always have the date/description thingy in the left corner. It sucks! You can crop it out or try to blur it out but honestly you shouldn’t be put in a position where you have to do that.

Of course 343 had already made it so much more difficult to take screenshots in Halo 4, before the MCC came out. I think it was during the phase when the new Halo Waypoint came out, that you suddenly had no recent screenshots in your file share anymore. The only way to find your screenshots was and still is to go to the public file share and look through a ton of screenshots from other people to find yours. If you’re lucky there aren’t a lot of others, but again! why remove something that was working perfectly fine and make it so much harder?

I’m really nervous about all this concerning Halo 5. Will 343 have a proper solution for the Halo photographer out there?
