2015 was a very busy year for video games. Both the PS4 and the Xbox One seemed to find their footing, while the Wii U managed to keep its head above water and the PC continued to chug along as it does every year.

But now 2015 is over, and whether you’re ready or not, hundreds of new games are coming down the pike in 2016. This week, Microsoft is celebrating that fact by reminding us of all the exclusive games launching on Xbox One in 2016.

Halo 5: Guardians Review

Halo 5: Guardians review: Combat re-evolved

Halo 5: Guardians review: Combat re-evolved

By on October 26, 2015 at 3:01 AM.

There has never been more pressure on an entry in the Halo series than there is on Halo 5: Guardians. Of course, that won’t factor directly into the review, but the story around the game is nearly as important as the story within the game — Microsoft is looking to catch up with Sony, and Halo 5 is going to be the key to upping Xbox One sales this holiday season.

The biggest console exclusive of the holiday season is almost here. Next week, Halo 5: Guardians will launch on the Xbox One, but I had a chance to play through and record the first three mission early.

If you want a completely fresh Halo 5 experience when you get the game, you might want to skip these videos. If you don’t care so much about story spoilers, enjoy some early footage of one of the biggest releases of 2015.
