My counselor told me time and space would be the best option, and then told me to continue doing what I've been doing and avoid my last heartbreak. Unfortunately one of my managers had other ideas and stuck me in a room with her and told us to resolve this issue or there would be consequences for the both of us.

The point I'm trying to make is always take time and space because you may not always have that option.

So I watched the trailer and my biggest gripe was how much of a crazy Hollywood action movie it looked like.


I had no idea what the Hell was even going on. There was so much shit happening on screen I didn't even have to time to care about the prosthetic limb bullshit because eight different things were happening seconds after seeing it. This is what happens when you let someone with ADHD make a trailer.

To be fair Verb, people will have a fixed view of the tone/intent of comments and posts based solely on text and wont ever change that view, Lord knows a number of people on here suffer greatly from that.

it's not really something you can just explain, you either understand it or you don't

it has a lot to do with knowing who someone is, what they do, what they believe, what their sense of humor is like, among many, many other variables, all of which can help you infer whether something is being said as a joke or what have you

it's very easy to pick up on these things, and you're just part of the unfortunate few who finds it difficult

It's the Halo game fans have been demanding since Halo 3 back on the 360, of course I'm playing it. I just wish that the population wasn't slashed at the knees by MS's bullshit.

I guess most of The Flood still hasn't seen Disney's Pixar's Marvel's Star Wars: Solo: A Star Wars Story, A Disney Production yet. Can anyone give me a verdict on whether or not to see it based on my opinion that The Last Jedi was a fucking dumpster fire?

I'd recommend he just bump up to an i7 instead, Ryzen barely performs on the same level as an i7 when it comes to gaming. I will admit though I don't know about its streaming performance.

Seems pretty good. Might want to consider Ryzen for streaming + gaming though.

What size? Also if I do, we really will need to meet up so I can give it to you.

Also they have several designs. They got a Solo design, Walking Dead design, Daredevil design, and a Jurassic Park design.

Get me a shirt.

Guys give me suggestions on what I should do while I'm here.

So I went with my sister yesterday cause she really really wanted me to go, so I bought a half-day ticket for only yesterday since it opened at like 4pm, and it was only 24 bucks. But when the lady at the ticket booth gave me the wristband, she gave me the four-day deluxe band by accident so I get to go today for free essentially.

Of course I'm gonna buy some swag but let me know what else I should look out for.

Hemorrhage was arguably the only good map with all the other shit maps in that game and I'm sorry you didn't have any friends to play with to help you vote for your favorite map in BTB in Reach.

It was okay at best. There was nothing wrong with either Boneyard or Spire (Boneyard being the best BTB map before the Defiance map pack was released). Regardless of the community's feelings towards a remake of Blood Gulch, it was not the only map in the playlist.
Go play Social Slayer right now in Halo 3, veto the first map that shows up, and tell me if you get a map that's not Last Resort/Narrows/Construct that comes up next. Social Slayer was the most populated playlist back in the day so I'm using that as an example.

I don't know about you but the Social Slayer playlist was varied quite well for me whenever I played. The only issue I had with Social Slayer was BTB maps like Standoff and Valhalla being in there.

The Veto system was flawed. If Team BRs gets vetoed, then the next gametype would always be Team Slayer no matter what. If Team Duals gets vetoed, then the next gametype would always be Team Slayer. There was no variety with the Veto system. Again, using the Social Slayer example.

I've seen more variety in the gamemodes I'm playing right now in the MCC than I ever did with Halo 3, also stretching across all 4 games.

You have to take into account both the map and gametype before you mash X. I'd gladly veto Team Slayer on the Pit if it meant I got BR starts on Isolation even though I hated that God forsaken map. And I've seen poor variety from MCC; I can't remember the last time I played a H2/H2A map, and almost half the BTB playlist is H4 maps. Funny though how Halo 3 still gets voted for the most in BTB, regardless of how much 343i pushes their H4.

Voting between three/four options is flawed because the community tends to only pick one map/gametype. Reach was terrible with this in BTB because it might as well have been renamed the Hemorrhage Playlist. The same situation applies in MCC, you're guaranteed the community will vote fucking Valhalla 9/10 times despite it being such a bland map. Having Veto means you can't just play the same map/gametype every time; not everyone wants to play CTF on Valhalla every single match. With Veto you might get Slayer on Relic, or Dominion on Longbow, or Assault on Last Resort.

How is the veto system any better? You never knew what you were getting once you vetoed a game type.

The only thing they need to change is allow you to change your vote and it will be fine.

Fucking finally, now I can actually get BR Slayer instead of fucking CTF all the time....

They're getting rid of it in the MCC update.

God having several voting options is shit in comparison to Veto. It's garbage in MCC and the only detriment to Halo Online.

Nothing truly abnormal yet everyone I knows tends to tell me my love for potatoes is a bit extreme. They simply don't understand the power of the miracle starch.

I used to hate Asuka, and I mean HATE her. I never understood why people found her so appealing, but as I got older I started to see more and more of myself in her. The second half of February and the entirety of the month of March for me was a straight up IRL version of Episode 22 with me as Asuka. So when I rewatched the series again it was incredibly painful to stomach through that episode in particular because it hit so close to home.

But that's just me, most people just like the fiery abrasive personality.

how the FUCK do people like asuka

and don't say it's because she's sympathetic, every character is sympathetic

What did you think of episodes 25 & 26 in comparison to EoE?

EoE is also full of even more crazy trivia than what was on that site you linked.

You’re not even a little curious about seeing the quality of it for yourself?

I'm dreading my family dragging me to see this one.

650 million at the box office.

Rogue One was also a side film but it still barely hit the billion ball. I expect the failure write off will impact its performance but not by a substantial amount.

I hope the memes make up for the lack of interesting games.

What would you do to a drunk chick?

Got written up at work back when I still worked Lost & Found for not answering calls. I was honest about it to, I didn't need to see the evidence they gathered' I told them straight up I hated that job and answering the calls made me miserable and I wanted out of there.

Despite that getting my act together for the month I remained there before I finally escaped, I wouldn't have done anything differently if I could go back in time.

It's more because it's the only TV I can stream online at any given time. Also I do enjoy Anthony Bourdain's show on Saturdays.

no but really, CNN is up there with Fox News with its sensationalist bullshit, even if one is more more a propaganda network

I don't see why they didn't commit to that considering Robert doesn't want to play the part anymore. That would've been a rare case of committee storytelling fitting perfectly with the narrative. But IIRC, he gave Disney the permission to use his CGI likeness till they get tired of it. I'll try and find a source but if it's true it'll give some insight into the timeline of superhero movies beyond what's already planned.

what they should've done is kill iron man the MOMENT thanos stabbed him, which is what everybody thought was gonna happen anyway, and it felt super earned with the music abruptly stopping the moment it happened, with tony looking defeated as fuck and everything

If it's not human error, can we really call them accidents? I don't think anything major is happening, otherwise big news sources would've picked up the fact; I have CNN playing 24/7 and I never knew about the increase until your thread.

Who or what is to blame for these? Are they all caused by human error, budget cuts, or something else?

Mods will fix it.

That's why I would rather have a real Halo 3 PC.
