thought there was a thread for this, but nothing turns up...

anyways, it just popped up on the Windows Store, for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 users who have Verizon.  I wonder how long until 'someone' 'fixes' it to work with other versions of windows.

It's turning out to be the lowest ranked Halo game ever and mediocre with a capitol 'M'.

Disagree. Play with a controller is better than mouse and keyboard. I found the PC version to be best with a 360 controller in-hand. Never wrote it up though - thinking of covering the Xbone/360 version.

I'll just pay out of pocket since I payed for both the WP8 and Win8 versions.

Saw it in the store yesterday though the "Purchase" option said "Unavailable".

That, along with Co-op, is new to the game. Otherwise, I completed the original levels plus the addon level that came out september/october timeframe.

I don't know about you, but the smilie icons aren't loading. I think Naednek may be passive-agressive on smacking down a typical "CeeKay" post.
