damn, 20 years!? happy b-day HBO!
I didnt really glance at it until now but these news topics are funny, Halo 4 prototype McFarlane, HCEA Kinect Library, Shield & Sword from Levi (Gamefreak better look out for his lawyers), GrimBrotherOne posting on HBO
This time of year is the best. E3, WWDC, summer (save for the brutal city heat), and then The International in August.
Cross your fingers that sooner rather than later HBO will be getting a screen-responsive front page and maybe a more usable skin over the forums (anything beyond the main page, though, LOL.) Claude's got a lot of stuff on his plate though.I want to post,
but I forgot my "preferences" :(
edit: I finally guessed correctly! :)
random thought, back when I was in college, for fun I did an all CSS makeover of HBO as a tuneup in my spare time, Wu didnt want to switch but appreciated it and I had alot of fun making a few different versions
also, holy shit at that date, wow
for the uninitiated this is what it normally looks like (on a 1024 x 720 monitor lol)
I remember a friend saying he installed Windows 3.1 on an old computer as a joke. The only website he could successfully navigate to was HBO.
Oh yeaaah i remember that now. It was the new BR design too, right? Imo that proved to be a really strong direction for it. Obvs gonna go more classic in this new one, which im also ok with
Im going to avoid making a joke at the halo 3 ending's expense here
I agree. Leaks that arent like a plot synopsis or whatever, instead just something out of context that won't make sense by itself
I'm holding out that evil Cortana is a Cortana fragment infected by Forerunner AI, becoming a different Cortana.
Nice idea there, I'd go for that. I'm sure they want to keep Jen Taylor and Cortana in the campaign as much as possible.I'm holding out that evil Cortana is a Cortana fragment infected by Forerunner AI, becoming a different Cortana.
And then real Cortana is chilling somewhere, surviving due to advanced Forerunner tech, and she'll come back into play. Maybe some living Forerunners also - let's explore that Didact/Librarian stuff.
I expect the beginning to establish a status quo where she and chief have to work together against a larger threat, and their dynamic through the game is about re-establishing trust and referencing the whole conflict we weren't there for. I highly doubt we'll still be in the heat of what we saw set up for any time in the game.
They were all rampant fragments by the end of it which is why Cortana is the way she is in Halo 5. As far as we know the original Cortana is gone.
I think it's simply misunderstood by players, Cortana was never fully cured of rampancy as she is not only clearly insane at this point, but she is in essence incomplete.
I think they clarified the misconception that Halo 5's Cortana was a rampant fragment, so unless I'm pulling that out of my arse, you're right.
I guess. I mean I really don't know how to interpret it. Only the rampant fragments of her survived?
There are no rampant fragments, in that Cortana was rampant and every piece of her is going to exhibit the same problems as rampancy is depicted. There was no "good" and "evil" Cortana at the end of H4.I guess. I mean I really don't know how to interpret it. Only the rampant fragments of her survived?
There's never any sort of conformation that the fragments that reach the domain were all normal or rampant. Just that there was a bunch of them working together to gain access to the domain.
I think a lot of people took the "I'm just a fragment" line to mean the Cortana we see in H5 is just a rampant fragment. But she isn't.
Yeah.This is my take as well, but if course they could choose to take things in a different way of they want to...There are no rampant fragments, in that Cortana was rampant and every piece of her is going to exhibit the same problems as rampancy is depicted. There was no "good" and "evil" Cortana at the end of H4.
People clinging to the fragment line are people who just refuse to believe Cortana could be an antagonist and are looking for reasons to explain how it's not "their" Cortana. 343 has unfortunately indulged them.
It's a greatest hits album with a bad rep. They're probably going extremely granular into specific improvements in order to show how serious they are about making it a quality product.I find it kind of amazing they have 12 pages worth of things to talk about, considering MCC is essentially a greatest hits album of Halo polished up.
And that's not me being snarky or anything, it's just weird because I don't think we ever had that much info from developers working on totally original content.
That's definitely true, they have a bit of a redemption arc to make happen, don't they?
how is the TTK and weapon balance?Been playing Splitgate Arena Warfare since it's officially released. I have to say it's a good time. It reminds me a lot of H5 and not in a bad way either. I don't know how well it'll do ( it peaked at like 11k players on release). However, it's F2P and it definitely scratches that Halo itch until it comes to PC.
