If you post a question regarding the MCC, it may be answered in this week's Bulletin. I'm glad to see several questions about the pre-order skulls. Hopefully we will learn that it is possible to get all 3 pre-order skulls without buying the game 3 times.
There wasn't any mention of the pre-order skulls in this week's Bulletin. However, ShopTo (a UK retailer) is accepting pre-orders for Halo MCC and is bundling a code for a "Bonded Pair" skull. This skull gives you a 100% damage boost for 60 seconds if your co-op partner dies. The site indicates that the skull is only for Halo 2 Annivesary and is exclusive until December 12, 2014. If the other pre-order skulls are timed exclusives like this, zaffy might be a bit happier.

Some highlights from the Bulletin:
- Digital download available and will include access to Halo: Nightfall and Halo 5: Guardians beta
- CEA and Halo 2 Anniversary campaigns will feature 2-player co-op both online and split-screen, while Halo 3 and Halo 4 will still support 4-player online co-op and 2-player split-screen co-op.
- No join-in-progress for matchmaking
- Halo 4 Spartan Ops included
- H2A has new terminals, like CEA
- BXR/other button combos may not work on the H2A remastered maps
- No spectator mode available, but you can always stream using Twitch on XB1

The Bonded Pair skull sounds interesting, but I think I will stick with the Gamestop-exclusive Bandana skull still.  Unlimited ammo and grenades beat out a 60-second damage boost by a long shot. ;)

I'm hoping with all these different pre-order exclusive skulls floating around that 343 puts out a pre-order skulls pack after the game's release so everyone can get the skulls they're missing.  I would buy that.

The bulletin also mentioned that there will be more information dropped at Gamescom (August 13th-17th), so keep an eye out around then! :)

The RTX panel was today, and here are some highlights (I posted this on another forum, so this is just a copy/ paste from there)


When I say Halo 2 Anniversary, I am referring to the 6 remade Halo 2 maps. Halo 2 STAYS THE SAME! Think of Halo 2 anniversary as a director's cut of sorts. With that said, here are the new things they talked about in the stream...


*Coagulation announced as one of the 6 remade Halo 2 anniversary maps
*Addition of a "Gungoose" vehicle, and promise of other new vehicles
*3 shield switch added to the central structure on Halo 2 anniversary's ascension
*ricochet, race, SWAT, infection, and other unannounced gametypes added to Halo 2 anniversary
*assault riffle and silenced SMG added to Halo 2 anniversary
*magnum buffed in Halo 2 anniversary
*343 eluded to spartan armor customization to be added to Halo 1/2/2 anniversary/ 3.

Gungoose? Why does this make me think race modes are going to play like Mario Kart now...

I remember the Gungoose from the Limited Edition behind the scenes stuff in Halo 2. It was bulky.

*3 shield switch added to the central structure on Halo 2 anniversary's ascension



Does this mean there are three curved shield doors around the middle of the map that can be turned on/off by activating one or more switches?

From how it sounded in the stream, there are 3 locations for a switch which all do the same thing, put up a shield around the central dish area. It also seemed like you can only turn the shield on, and then just wait for it to fade away, maybe 20-30 seconds after activating it?

I'm happy to hear all the new a Halo news.  I never played Halo 2 so I know nothing about Coagulation.  What is the map like and how does it play? Small, mid-range, sniper battles?

EDIT: Nobody posted the H2A Terminals Trailer shown off at RTX, so here it is:
