Also the cockpits have no field of view like the D77-TC models and somehow it manages to have worse armament than the TC's functional and effective chin-mounted autocannon and rocket pods.

Halo 4's pelican is awful

yo just want to let you know there's no report button, no mute button, no block button in real life. I want to see your glance as I smash your skull into the fucking concrete, and I strangle the life out of you, pushing my thumbs into their eye sockets until you cry blood lol. well, not before forcing you to watch their beloved ones die in front of you.
Halo 4's pelican has always looked like a bulky unwieldly unaerodynamic piece of shit that for some reason mounts a tank cannon on the top and two machine gun turrets on the sideyou just kind of have to balance yourself on while being blasted by some nice jetwash from the engines

How anyone can like that is beyond me

Hidden Experia
I watched that blowhard's video about how the Bungie artstyle was better and he couldn't stop saying "iconic" and used retarded terms like "stealthy-deadly" to describe the old Elite design. 343's artstyle is dog shit but he talked about stupid vague shit and not why people dislike what Halo looks like now.

I do not disagree with any of this. Granted some of 343is art is good. Chief's 4-5 armor is probably my favorite at this point, same with the Pelican. Requiem was beautiful and Halo Wars 2 looked gorgeous as long as they were not duct taping a million guns to pelicans or grafting fucking Wal-E's corpse onto sniper marines.

Just about everything else though is pretty meh at best and at it's worse it's the fucking Seeker Helmet.
Halo 4's pelican is awful and Halo Wars 2 used new forerunner architecture where it shouldn't have

After BF4 (before LA fixed it it was shit),BF1 and the Battlefront games I'm more or less done with anything DICE makes. Their games have been getting progressively worse for years now, so I don't really have any interest in this one.

Titanfall 2's only paid dlc was weapon skins (not RNG, just buy what one you want), but everything else (maps, weapons, titans etc) were free. I only really mention it because in a Q&A one of the producers said the skins didn't make money and the ones they did in the last few updates were just ones the artists wanted to make.

My favourite thing about Halo Wars 2 is if there's an update there's a chance you might have to reinstall the entire game. It's a lot of fun, more fun than the actual game.
The best part is when they release a 2mb update that the devs didn't know about and no one seems to know why it exists or released or what it does and it causes you to reinstall the entire thing.

I'm scaling back the menu - keeping it local and rustic.
Glad to see it fits with the village's rustic aesthetic.

If you get hit by the Needler in real life, would you die before getting super combined or after?
Even getting hit by one is a death sentence. There's a bit in TFOR where a marine gets hit by one and the needle explodes into millions of pieces of microshrapnel that cut through his body and leave him with mass internal bleeding. Supercombine is just overkill.

Which reminds me; Remember the part in Ghosts of Onyx where one of the Gammas got supercombined and was able to keep fighting with his chest blown open off of sheer adrenaline.
i haven't read onyx for years

so sort-of-but-not-really

my brother got the xbox game pass so i can finally try halo wars 2

do any of you play/played it? i thought the original one was alright (im prolly gonna play the definitive ed too) but im glad i can see whats up with the spirit of fire
The story amounts to "humans and brutes shoot each other on the ark for four hours" - nothing happens at all. Campaign itself is really mediocre as the mission design is incredibly railroad-ey so you don't start getting to do the strategy part of the strategy game until after the halfway mark. The Awakening the Nightmare DLC campaign improves a lot in the design but has a similar problem RE story where nothing happens.

Game itself is pretty fun. I got a lot of enjoyment out of the AI battles. Season pass is worth it as the DLC leaders are pretty fun to play as.

What game are you doing next? I'm looking forward to your New Vegas run if you still intend to do that at some point.
This.

Also I know you dont like to mod but please install the unofficial patch for it. Itll make the experience not infuriating at times.
You don't need the unofficial patch.

t. doesn't use it at all

there's no advice you could give to a 20-something that he hasn't already thought to himself at least once

people like to say teenagers think they know everything, but if you think about it, in a lot of ways, they really do

you get stupider with age starting at age 20
So what you're saying is that I'm at peak intelligence rn

Will people here really go back to MCC after it gets fixed?
It's too late that it will just make the game popular for like a week at most, then it''ll die down to what the population is like now. Unless the game is free when the update comes out, it won't save the game.
Even if nothing changes on that front, at least they're sorting out stuff like emblems displaying, the menu UI, letting you uninstall games (or game components) you don't want to play and stuff.
Last I heard about the emblem changes was they didn't work on player models and wouldn't be in. I'm not in the program so I don't know for sure if this is true
I heard somewhere that they had been fixed - it might just be in scoreboard but I could have sworn it was for the models too.

The only issue he had was that the music he did didn't "feel" like Halo,

I've always felt like this was the dumbest thing people could say, because what "feels" like Halo is arbitrary and impossible to determine. Beyond that, Halo 4 is a very different game narratively to the original 3, and it needed a new sound to establish that.

Davidge's score was incredibly inspired and set the tone perfectly for 343's vision. Keep in mind this was when 343 still had balls and aritistic integrity before trying to appease Original Trilogy faggots. I still maintain that Halo 4 has the best campaign of all Halo games in terms of overall artistic merit.

It was used pretty terribly in-game for sure, but I can't really levy that against him.
For me, the overuse of synths and electronic elements (despite those being some of my favourite songs) did it. Also, only like one song actually had the Halo theme in it.

It doesn't stop 4 from being one of my favourote OSTs but it feels very different to the Marty stuff or even Halo 5.
