idk how it works in Ireland but in the UK TV license works by whether you watch live TV or not. If you just have a TV and only use it to watch Netflix or DVDs or play games etc it's fine. When I kept up with the Walking Dead I'd watch it an hour after it aired on NowTV because I didn't have a TV license.

oh also watching BBC content because TV license is what pays for BBC to do stuff as they don't run adverts but also BBC has nothing worth watching anyway so it's not missing out on anything
People here are wishing for the UK BBC model.
The way it works in IE is if a device is capable of getting a TV signal (regardless if you actually watch TV or not) you have to pay it. The kicker is that you cannot watch TV unless you buy an aerial or a decoder box.
holy shit that's awful

I made a playlist on spotify to throw on while I play stuff like Elite Dangerous/ Stellaris, though recently I've just been using it as background music. Full of scifi ambient music - Mass Effect, Halo, Interstellar, Bladerunner, Elite, etc OSTs. Throwing it on shuffle with crossfade on is super nice.

Link if anyone wants it

I've been stubborn about not posting in them since basically they started being a thing, but now it's to the point where I can't really talk about Halo unless I post in it.
Most of the Halo thread is just people sharing clips or complaining about 343 anyway. You're not really missing much.

I get most of my Halo talk in discords like Halopedia now

Do you guys ever actually get to do the course you go there to do?

Finished final project now, here's some pics.


I posted some more pics and a video over on Artstation if anyone is particularly interested. I did a lot of work with flow maps to make the steam particle effects so its an area I'm pretty happy with.
Very strong Foundry and The Storm influences on the environment. Looks good.
Spoiler

I think I actually used Foundry for some of my texture reference yeah, though for the most part I was sticking to the original Titanfall 1 concept art (linked in my Artstation post) and the Titanfall levels Drydock and Airbase. Thanks a lot!
Was gonna say that I was getting Titanfall vibes as well but I figured that was a bit more obvious lol
Yep. The original concept piece has been one of my favourite bits of concept art for anything since I first saw it in The Art of Titanfall in 2014, so I picked it as my final project well over a year before actually starting lmao

Watched Ad Astra and 1917 last week. Loved every second of them both.

My local cinema was gonna be showing Interstellar this week but then my region went back into lockdown so thats on hold now. Hoping it's still gonna play when it reopens because Interstellar is genuinely one of my favourite films and I wish I could have seen it in cinema.

I like that they are adding things and not really trend-chasing. Though you could argue that open-world is a trend. Still, they are trying to keep the franchise fresh.
eh, the grappling hook is just copying off of doom eternal/titanfall 2 to me, and I can't really say I saw anything that seemed trend setting.
tbh a lot seems taken from Titanfall. Grapple/ Sliding, the new rifle looks like a poor man's R101 Carbine and the new pistol looks like the Hammond P2016. Even the insistence on hexagon rocks is something Titanfall did back in 2016.


at least the hexagon rocks in Halo 4 kinda made sense, it seemed based on a real life location in Iceland. At least there it looked believable, but in the Halo Infinite trailer it just looks like a lazy cop out to avoid cliff faces. Just bothers me.

I always assumed it was more based on the Giant's Causeway in Ireland than Iceland.

btw how's OPTRE doing?
Some cool stuff being done. Recently a bunch of Forerunner structures got released on dev build.


I've also seen some of the stuff in the non-OPTRE Arma 3 mod currently being made. There's some pretty amazing work being done there, I can't wait for it to release.

You probably won't need to play HW2 to understand Infinite, given the game ends more or less as it began. The entire game is just "people doing stuff" but nothing really actually happens. They're trying to av
oid doing the super hard EU/ game integration now so its unlikely they'll bring the Spirit of Fire into the main series.

The only thing from HW2 really worth noting is
Spoiler
The Ark builds a third replacement for Installation 04 and Anders sends it to the Soell system to try contact the UNSC, but it gets intercepted by a Guardian

The rest of the games plot can basically just be summed up as Humans shoot Brutes for 8 hours and Atriox gets mad.

i downloaded the game to give it another try, but if thats the case i might not play it lol
Fair tbh, I'd say it's worth for PvE in custom games, but the campaign story and level design are both pretty mediocre. The campaign feels like it both starts and ends in the second act.

The Operation Spearbreaker DLC campaign has some decent level design (only two missions, and a forgettable story) and the Awakening the Nightmare DLC (five missions) has an ok story but some pretty good levels, notable because you play as the Banished fighting Flood.

Overall though I'd just watch a cutscene compilation on YT.

Does anyone else just not care about this game or is it just me
I was kinda interested after BR2049 got me in a Cyberpunk (genre) mood for a while but the way people at my uni wouldn't shut up about it made me lose interest.
