Last night we hosted one of our most exciting Twitch streams yet. Hundreds of viewers tuned in to get an early look at Halo: the Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. Yours truly played through one mission each from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 2: Anniversary.
I absolutely didn't remember where to go in either mission, and sometimes I struggled against the Covenant hordes (especially the Hunters in Halo: CE). But we all had a great time, met some new readers and viewers, and maybe even learned a little something about life. See yesterday's post for archive videos of both games.
Tonight's stream focused on Halo 3 and 4. These two games haven't received the same level of enhancement as Halo and Halo 2, but they still look and run better than ever on Xbox One – especially Halo 4. The stream has now ended and prizes have been awarded. Check out our replay videos to see both games in action!

Tonight's Halo: the Master Chief Collection broadcast
Halo: the Master Chief Collection is a collection of all four Halo games that starred the Master Chief, now remastered for Xbox One.
Tonight's event features the following missions (and no others):
- Halo 3 – Sierra 117
- Halo 4 – Infinity
Join us for this stream and you can win some tasty prizes. We'll be giving out three codes for $10 of Xbox Live credit as well as a grand prize code for a 3-month Xbox Live Gold subscription.
How to view the stream and enter the contest
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Annoyingly, you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
Feel free to show up a few minutes before the stream starts to help with testing. We'll be stopping the stream precisely after one hour and 45 minutes tonight, otherwise I'd stick around and chat. Let's make the most of the time we have and meet up again during future streams. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and all of our Xbox One gaming stories!
More streams to come this week and beyond
This Saturday, we'll also stream an indie Xbox One game called Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition. It might not be as flashy as Halo, but smaller games make for great viewing while you chat with your fellow viewers. We'll be giving away Xbox One, Playstation 4, and WiiU codes, and the odds of winning are fantastic.
Join us and see why this classic game is so fondly remembered more than 20 years after its first release!
- Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition – Xbox One – 268 MB – $7.99 – Xbox.com Link
Stay tuned for our November Twitch streaming schedule.
Congratulations to the following lucky viewers. Heck, everybody who watched the stream is a winner in my book!
