Every July 7th, I always see it as Bungie day! Bungie what the fuck have you done to me?

It made sense 10 years ago, it doesn't make any sense now.
This December I'm going to let my gold run out and I'm not going to renew. Xbox no longer has anything to offer me that's worth paying for gold yearly anymore. Online gaming honestly should be free like how it is on PCs, we're already paying for the internet, XBL costing extra money just to game online sucks, the only thing I see gold being used for is the free games for gold stuff, but even then I don't find many games appealing anymore on there, that's what those services should be used for, you wanna get free games for a limited time? Get gold, that's how it should be advertised, but no, you wanna play online you gotta pay $60 a year.
Its just not worth it anymore, considering I can play online for free on PC or hell, I'll even go back to this meme
LiNK on my RGH console with other RGH console users!
I'm not kidding, even that's a better alternative to Xbox Live, its just not populated enough because people don't know about it.
Oh, and lag on system link tunneling, and Xbox Live are pretty much on the same level. You no longer have far more lag on system link tunneling. Ping patches that run in the background improve that.
Now that Bungie gave its old community the ultimate middle finger, I went ahead and decided to save this before the forums went bye bye.
They still have the link to this banner active in their assets when I refresh, but who knows how long that's going to be up, and they're very likely going to erase it.
So here you go guys, the last of Flood history

I've hit a new low. I'm a point where not only do I not give a shit, but its getting to the point that I don't even care about living let alone wanting to be alive anymore.
I can no longer stand myself and its currently taking a massive toll on my overall mood.
I hate everyone equally, but I hate myself the most. I honestly wish I could be someone else entirely with a complete blank slate with a revised personality, and not be tied down to my current ethic background, gender, or mental disability.
"Kill yourself then Deci"
Yeah that doesn't give me what I want, that would only give what others on here want, at least a sick few who would actually encourage suicide.
If life itself had a nice reset button, where I could be someone else entirely and have the chance to make completely different decisions and have the option to be a blank slate let alone wiping away any mental disability I have, I would be doing a lot better on a social level.
Instead I'm socially impaired and am nothing more but a pessimistic pathetic loser thinking I'm able to find some form of reassurance that I'm wrong on a backwater internet forum
But nope, I know I'm right.
Its not the community and its not even for my rank or post count or title.
Its the fucking layout. As far as I know, this is the only website that is a usable B.old throwback. I haven't found any other B.old clone that looks anywhere close to B.old.
This website is it right here. That's the only good thing about Sep7agon.net
Say what you will, I'm just really depressed right now and I feel nostalgic. That's the only reason why I'm here. Nostalgia of something that's no longer tangible.
Cheat, thank you for creating this place, you're not a bad creator, but you are a bad community manager. We had the potential to have everyone from B.old be here, that's what we should have done, we should have started off as a B.old only website, and then slowly let in new people who were never apart of B.old. At least I think that way we would have had a semi decent community and not a backwater forum.
I'm all for shitposting, where as the old site was so strict with that, that you could only do it in private groups. There could have been a balance where it could have worked instead of lack of control to the point where a wasted trash board was made to move all the really bad stuff.
The toxicity even drains my energy at this point, that's why I'm on here a lot less than usual. Again, say what you will, I posted my 2 cents.
We're even at a point as a website where we don't even need moderators anymore. They're just for decoration now.

You can't even have something without someone going "oh that offends me, how dare you talk about it this way, that's racist/sexist" or like "That's not a very feminist thing to do" or like "That's politically incorrect, you're offensive!"
Like how much of a fucking pussy can people be? What's even worse is the kind of shit they're doing to Miss America for example, why because Trump is in charge?
Oh how fucking misogynistic Miss America is cuz Trump apparently started that shit before he was president, and as a result they are reducing the show to have it be a measure of intelligence instead of judging sexy women. Why couldn't that be its own separate thing? Why remove it? I mean I don't even watch Miss America but fuck that is so fucking stupid.
You know, I do all I can to stay out of politics and not even bother with it, because honestly that's how much I dislike politics as a whole, but when the current political climate starts affecting shit like this let alone other mediums including games and movies or even shit on YouTube, its problematic as fuck.
So many fucking pussy whipped people in this generation and its beyond fucking pathetic. I can't believe I'm saying this but everything 10-20 years ago was actually better compared to shit now.
20 years ago people wouldn't put up with this kind of crap, but now that its a standard and its been accepted as the norm, its a fucking disgrace to the entire human race.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent, something that everyone especially SJW's should keep in mind but don't.
So under gaming in a thread I made, Chally invites me to a Discord server he's an admin of, I join said server after I accept to 1v1 him in Halo Online this Saturday
Fast forward to this weekend, I'm apparently either booted or banned from the Discord server he invited me in and he edited the link to Discord's main download page.
What the actual fuck? I thought we were going to 1v1 Chally, why the ban? You're afraid I'm gonna beat you?
Original Trilogy Enthusiast: You like the original 3 Halo games produced by Bungie, you enjoy the story and gameplay and consider it to be Halo's absolute best and full potential. You consider ODST to be more of an add-on than a separate game.
ODST Enthusiast: You played ODST as your first Halo game and its the only old Halo game you like
Reach Enthusiast: You played Reach as your first Halo game and its the only old Halo game you like, you believe sprint belongs in Halo.
Reclaimer Trilogy Enthusiast: You enjoy the campaigns that 343 Industries has produced, you enjoy the fastpaced gameplay alongside with Spartan Ops, Warzone and plenty of other mordern game modes, you believe microtransations and ordnance drops belong in Halo.
Total Halo Fanboy: You love everything about the Halo franchise, you live, eat sleep, drink, piss and shit anything that has the Halo brand on it.
Multiplayer Enthusiast: You only play a Halo game for its multiplayer, nothing more nothing less.
Other Category: A combination of one or many of these categories or neither.
So which Category do you see yourself in? I personally find myself under the Original Trilogy Enthusiast category.

Because I did, signed up for it. Had to go through a survey.
Did anyone else get one?
To be more clear, the survey is from Xbox Research and it gave me the chance to sign up for the MCC Insider Program.
I was one of the last kids in my generation to grow up with Mr. Rogers on PBS. I don't think there will ever be anyone like Fred Rogers on this earth. A man with good morals who had a lot of compassion and wisdom and really was a true neighbor to all of us who watched him growing up.
I'm looking forward to seeing this documentary and I'm glad he's still relevant long after his death.

Talk about holy shit. Like I know Destiny 2 was bad but.... wow.

Thanks to Nuka for telling me it got released to the public.
Halo 2 Alpha: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IkUTJjtES19f4IKIFgtIaE7X-qxxJ7Kt/view

Requires softmodding your Original Xbox (easy to do, just YouTube it)
I got my 500GB Western Digital Hard Drive in the mail today. Made sure its compatible and can be locked.
I'm gonna follow this video closely and carefully. As soon as my Original Xbox has this hard drive installed with the old one removed, its going to make the official debug and developmental units look like toys.
I have all the tools I need to do this as well, including the wire splitter.
Wish me good luck.
Edit: Here's another guide with the exact hard drive I have
That's right, I played the original on its original hardware. None of that remastered shit or MCC. Just looking at the title screen, I couldn't help but think "How the fuck did such a franchise with a simple premise become such a massive clusterfuck?"
Halo CE was simple but fun with its first game, with good gameplay, great story telling, and an excellent soundtrack, granted the multiplayer wasn't huge in the first game, but believe it or not, there was a time where people didn't buy a game for its multiplayer only, this game was purely bought for the campaign, and multiplayer in this was suppose to be like a party game with friends, and that's what it was before MLG was even a thing.
Just looking back at this game and even trying to compare it to Halo 5 is almost fucking impossible, Halo now has an identity crisis and its very nature has really dropped a new low.
People are right. The Halo Franchise is dead. There will never be another game like Halo CE again, or Halo 2, or Halo 3 even. Which is why I'm glad that they happened and we still have the games to enjoy.
And to anyone who's never really played through the original trilogy and has an interest in the story, if you want a pure unaltered experience, I strongly recommend getting and playing each game on its native hardware, but if you want it all on one system, MCC is a great way to play through the entire original trilogy.
R.I.P Halo. I just have a feeling Halo 6 is going to be nothing more but a late abortion of a Halo game.
So for the sake of discussion, when was the first time you played Halo 1?
Personally, I was 10 years old, played the demo on my OG Xbox back in 2002/2003, but I didn't get the game until I was 12.
I'm not talking about aimbot cheating. I'm talking about content creation in an existing game, or simple mods that allow you to access in game content that is normally unobtainable, or a new way to play or explore an existing game.
I actually wish to post more threads discussing mods in games including but not limited to the Halo series, but with the amount of negative feedback that spikes from it, its rather discouraging to even try.
Why is this? Why is it wrong to mod anything? Unless the sole intent of a mod is to destroy or damage a profitable service or hardware, its not illegal. Yes it breaks the TOS with services like Xbox Live and PSN, but again, its not against the law.
I understand why Bungie will remove and/or ban you for threads regarding ANY modding with the Halo IP or even access to ANY beta they worked on unlocked, let alone modding discussion in general being a big no no, but I don't understand why Sep7agon is against this.
So, what gives? What's the deal?
Here is the premise. A flash on your screen happens, this flash only applies to Sep7agon. Its 2014 again, at least on Sep7agon. Its starting out new. Nobody remembers or knows of you, you make an account and join for the first time. Nobody is banned yet, and no drama has yet to unfold.
You alone are the only person who remembers what when on at Sep7agon for the last 4 years, if you have said or done anything stupid, this would be your real second chance to not do it again. If you haven't done anything and have achieved dank status, continue on with 2014 Sep7aogn exactly as you did 4 years ago. If you want to get out of 2014, hit F5 to refresh and go back to present day Sep7agon.
What do you do?
I guess that sears policy must really be working for them. Well it isn't working for me. If there's one thing I actually love about Sep7agon is that you won't get banned over something stupid.
I'm just gonna make this shit clear, people from Sapphire. Unless you're going stay here and accept Sep7agon's culture, I honestly don't need to see any advertising of Sapphire around Sep7agon. If the sears policy is still a thing, nobody here wants to be apart of it unless they are already a member there or a member before they were a member here.
I'm willing to think that people will change over time and past shit will remain past shit, but I don't think this applies to them.
I can almost guarantee you that a thread on Sapphire will be made on this thread here at Sep7agon, implying I'm still a popular subject on that website, and if I still am, that's incredibly fucking pathetic.
Its also rather surreal how much forums use to be a large part of my life and now they're hardly a thing. Having a full time job making good money and working on other projects has really got me detached from forums in general. I'm not here everyday anymore like I used to be.
I pretty much have a life, people here can think all kinds of things about me, but honestly, it doesn't personally affect me. I'm still working for over a year now doing office work and making bank, I've saved up money I thought I'd never have and continue to save. I even went to Las Vegas last month for the first time with my hard earn cash.
Anyway, if people there still have no lives and I'm still a relevant topic, they need to get a new hobby, and in all honesty, who really knows what people are like outside of the internet, outside of forums.
Forums warp us, and excessive use of them is unhealthy as fuck.
Take what you will from this thread, I felt like writing a blog.
Say what you will about BDobbins, but he isn't wrong. I'm glad I didn't buy this fucking game. I still refuse to.
Heh, wow. I honestly believe Bungie is probably going end up closing its doors by the time Destiny 3 is out, assuming the tards don't give them more money.

Most of us oldschool Halo players don't really like Halo 4 and 5, well, Halo 5 mainly. Though personally I'm not a fan of Halo 4, and I maybe the only person who would originally buy a Halo game to continue the story, multiplayer was always an added bonus for me. I didn't start buying a Halo game for multiplayer until Halo 4.
Will I buy Halo 6? That depends. Since 343 really fucked up with Halo 5's story, here's a small idea on how they can redeem themselves or the series, otherwise Xbox and Halo are done.
First things first, Cortana. Instead of her being the main villain of the game now, The Chief ends up capturing her via the chip and taking her back to Halsey, having her fixed to be freed from her corruption Or, if Cortana is really gone since Halo 4, then that wouldn't be Cortana but a rampancy clone of Cortana. That would make a fuck of a lot more sense than saying that's Cortana. I don't like how an intelligent AI character in the story has been reduced to nothing more but a total nuance. Even Bungie made this mistake in Halo 3 with Cortana appearing in your HUD. Like, I can understand having it happen once on the first mission, but to have it happen again and again and again. Its just unfortunate.
2nd: We've been to all these locations in Halo 4 and 5, and have had the Halo ring only mentioned a few times. Why not actually go back to oh gee I don't know:
An actual fucking Halo ring?
I'd love to explore Installation 05 again, or what about the other Installations? 343 has so many Installations to work with. Going back on The Ark in Halo 3, when on the level on the covenant, if I counted correctly there are at least 9 Halo rings that exist. Any one those 9 could easily be used in the story. Maybe you go to Installation 03 or 01 or hell even 07 to pay an homage to old Bungie with their obsession with 7. The possibilities are endless.
Just with these alone could potentially setup the foundation for a decent story to salvage the franchise one last time. The Flood could make a comeback and be released from an Installation no one has set foot on yet. It isn't too late.
Sadly, they will never do this. Chances are Halo 6 is only going to be dumbed down ever further than Halo 5 already is, and I'm sure Microsoft doesn't want Halo to go back to be an M rated title.
Halo's 1-Reach are worth playing along with the anniversary editions of Halo CE and 2 compared to the shit known as 4, 5, and presumably 6.
Unless anyone has a better idea (believe me I'd love to hear it) that would salvage the franchise, this is really the only building blocks I can offer to 343 for a decent story.
Another thing I will never understand is why the actual fuck would 343 hire people who hate Halo? That's like hiring people into your pizza place who hate pizza, its gonna suck!
Anyway, so what do you think? Can Halo 6 possibly redeem itself and the franchise if done right? Or is it too late? Oh and going back to the art style Bungie used would also be a huge plus with the decent story at best.
I heard about people from Bungie.net joining here and I though that this would give me a fresh chance to revive myself accordingly and rather be more of a professional than take shit too far like in the past.
How's everyone doing?
I've been busy like hell and yes I have requested my ban and took nearly 3 months off. Kinda missed you guys.
I won't be partaking in any gamedays if those still go on, I've been too busy to play anything as of late.
So how's it going?

Here's the deal. You are forced to see one or the other against your will. You will have backstage passes to see the musical artist you voted for in this thread. You can't kill them but you can ask them questions if you wish.
No you cannot have an alternative.
Who do you choose to see? Justin Bieber or Rammstein?
