It was a really good film, I actually found some parts difficult to watch though.

I've been trying to play more, if you ever see me online send me a party invite. My days off are Monday/Tuesday so those are the best times. I should also note that I don't really initiate party invites myself.

When are you gonna play with me and Boomdeyadah? We next an extra guy to help out clean the filth of MCC BTB.

correct, as halo is one of the dullest franchises in the history of FPS franchises. Seriously each episode following the space marine and his pals from the UNSC as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the slow gameplay, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of mechanics, all to make movement molasses, to make bullets seem magnetic.

Perhaps the die was cast when Bungie vetoed the idea of Apple funding the series; they made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for directx. The Halo series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-Perfect Dark series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to with 343i.

>a-at least the single player was good though
The level design is dreadful; the single player was terrible. As I played, I noticed that every time I went for a walk, the designer instead put an un-involved corridor in my path.

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time a corridor was encountered. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Bungie's mind is so governed by cliches and flat topography that they have no other style of gameplay. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Halo by the same Jason West. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are playing Halo at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to play Call of Duty." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you play "Halo” you are, in fact, trained to play Call of Duty.

Now you got me thinking about Optimatch Playlist forum and my old views of Halo 3 MM. It certainly has changed over the years. I'd gladly veto Team Slayer on The Pit (God I love The Pit) if it meant getting Team BRs on fucking Isolation.

Shoutout to all those retards in back in Social Slayer that wouldn't veto Team Slayer on Valhalla

You got the basic gist of it. Blizzard banned a pro-Hearthstone player from competing next year for supporting the Hong Kong protests. This causes a huge amount of backlash from fans and they decide to boycott their games/burn their collections/chargeback their payments. To make matters worse, users are finding it a little hard to delete their Blizzard accounts and preventing payments from being canceled, creating an even bigger PR nightmare for Blizzard.

Who’s advocating for it? Feinstein has been DESPERATE to reinstate her ban for literal decades, even before there was a hysteria on shootings. News reports are saying even Democrats aren’t really supporting it, if Feinstein is in charge I can see why.

OwO what's this, a new assault weapons ban in Congress? Probably won't amount to anything though.

Yugioh GX is the greatest anime ever and I will fight anyone who disagrees to the death.

I forgot what step we're at, so I'm calling this step 6:

Don't give your anime a bad title. If the title has something like a . or / or ZERO or GX or @ or & or random French words or words just stitched togher or whatever, just ditch it. Same goes for titles with just too many buzzwords or words altogether. This applies to all anime things, including manga and video games or other spinoffs.

You’re entitled to think that Chally, yet as far as everyone except you and MAYBE her is concerned that has any credibility you’re wrong. You yourself said she had red flags and that should avoid even being friends with her. Either A. You were correct that she’s fucking crazy and I’m more innocent than you want to believe, or B. You think I’m a creep and you were wrong about her being batshit insane.

I mean, the situation is clearly A despite how much you want it to be B but you’re still wrong.

You go through the trouble of writing all this nonsense but you leave out the important details of you being a total creep to this poor girl.

Per Maverick and Das, I'm updating you all on the situation with that one girl that caused quite a bit of grief for me last year and what ultimately ended up happening since I haven't updated anyone on the matter since April of last year.

TL;DR: Bitch left our location and tried to get me fired on a lie. It fucking fails and she loses her dream job/location to me and now has to work around me every day knowing she lost.

EDIT: Never mind, it appears I was mistaken in thinking some people would have gotten over the fact that I failed to heed their advice and refuse to accept me admitting my mistake in ignoring them. You can't please everybody.

Because they're anime cards. I know that's a real shitty explanation but that legitimately is Konami's reasoning. They had a situation just like this recently with a card called Firewall Dragon. The card was OP as shit and was used for multiple infinite-loop OTKs but instead of just simply banning Firewall Dragon they would ban literally every other card around it for a while before they did finally outright ban it.

We never did get an explanation as to why because Konami never mentions cards when they get hit and added to the list, but it was pretty obvious they didn't want to ban Firewall because it was an iconic card from the VRAINS anime. Kids are just as welcome into locals/tournaments as any other age group and Konami stresses that a lot so they didn't want to (but ultimately ended up having to) ban a card a kid saw from the anime and wanted to use it when going to their first locals/tournaments/whatever.

The same logic for Firewall Dragon could be used on making banned OP God cards.

i wonder why they don't just make them super OP for casual play only, since they're in charge of banning stuff anyway

If you’re talking about garbage bag girl then there is t anything to really update you on. She graduated college, left the company and I never saw her again. I’ll be making a thread on the rotten wrench that went batshit insane that caused me grief both this year and last year as I never updated anybody since April of last year.

Damn son we need a big ol update then

Oh my God I remember that, damn that was so long ago. No lol she was long gone eons ago dude.

the girl who you were trying to get with a while back who seen you wearing a garbage bag as a rain pancho cause you needed to take the trash out or something and it was raining

I can make one if there is a demand for story time. It definitely would warrant its own thread because it was one wild ride and that bitch tried to do some insane shit to me (and failed fantastically).

is there a thread for this?

I understand that and it’s definitely not something I intend to do forever. I’m only doing it now cause I have no intention of creating an already volatile situation worse with two roommates fighting over dishes. Some of my own utensils and supplies have already vanished and I learned the only winning move is to not play.

Speaking from experience, I'm just gonna say you might end up wishing that getting fat was the worst thing that happened to your health if you keep eating unhealthy all the time.
