so what is the best pizza to you? any particular style? im always open to try other styles/combinations etc.
It's gotta be thin

It's gotta have some tomato based sauce and cheese. After that you can fuck it up however you'd like. Spicy Pie (Jalopenos, pepperoni, red pepper flakes baked in) and Supreme are my favorites.

I like some thicker crust stuff on occasion but to be thick crust equates to Pizza Hut/Dominos/Digiornos.

nice nice. the only place, so far, that i've enjoyed a thicker crust is from old chicago. it's kind of "light" and isnt too bready if that makes sense.so i feel ike there is a good amount of everything in each bite. also, their ale crust is good too. but it has to be baked a little longer so its not soggy on the bottem when having a lot of toppings on it.
italian grinder from old Chicago.

the worst pizza i've tasted is from "REAL GOOD" frozen pizzas. lol tried the califlower crust with pepperoni .. what a mistake

Please explain the baffling decision to not have Seattle or Eastside as a destination.



LOL

I dunno what it was but social matchmaking in Reach was AMAZING for the wrong reasons. A group of us from here would go into Squad Slayer/Objective matches and just STEAM roll. Consistently win by 10-15 or more points. That's the whole reason the Oddball Swordbase meme came about. We were matched with such idiots that we could purposely drop the oddball into the middle of sword base while we had maybe like 20 seconds of advantage on it and the enemy team would just blindly rush the objective while we stood above them on the catwalks and balconies and just tossed grenades and DMR fire on them.

The best part was how the stats were organized on bungie.net at the time.

Peep those win streaks and spreads http://halo.bungie.net/stats/reach/playergamehistory.aspx?vc=3&player=Tawpgun&page=25
Someone sure loved abusing broken spawn points...

I like my pizza the same way I like Halo-- simple and classic. Throw in vehicles too. Delivery or pick-up it doesn't matter to me.

I like customized pizzas too, but after you nail the fundamentals first.

I spent alot of Reach saying to my friends in the post game lobby

"... did we just make these people quit Halo?"

We never would delay victory to killfarm, because we didn't want to be jerks, but what are you supposed to do if a team is just THROWING BODIES at you.

Like, I love Halo and I want other people to love it, but I'm not gonna throw a game either..

Houston has some absolutely fantastic food. I'm also looking forward to a real Cheese Steak in Philly and some neapolitan style thin pizza in Chicago and one of their famous hot dogs - slathered in ketchup just like a local!
Just don't go to Geno's or Pat's. Plenty of non-tourist-slammed great cheesesteak places.

Go give this person upvotes



Had a blast, definitely a few minor critical points of feedback, but overall super good.

What the best avenue for me to give feedback that will get to the right eyes and ears?

I didn't mind beta testing, btw hope you got to catch some of the Jen & Steve panel, they were great
Pm me feedback directly if you like! I'll update with a more scaleable solution when I get back to Seattle.
Now's your chance to tell Stinkles that Mk. V (helmet and armor) needs to be in Infinite day 1, nilla.

Don't let him distract you with H5 SWAT CE Pistol clips.

Just realized how much of a missed opportunity it was to not do a Guardian remake in Halo 5 set on Genesis, I could totally see that location working. Would also have been cool if they were able to slap some Guardians in the background. Not sure how Spartan Abilities would have jived with it, but it's a fun map nonetheless.

It took a long while to convince buddies into not committing Halo war crimes on nubbies. It's for the greater good of the population retention.

Also WTF Nilla at not having sauce? I used to like your forge creations, I'm not so sure now mate. You're in the sin bin for 3 minutes with that call.

I think its time for Campaign Forge guys. Infinite Halo. That's the only thing the title could mean.
...
Omg imagine just Halo Maker. All the assets from every Halo.
This is a feature that would, if implemented correctly, make it without question the best Halo campaign of all time. Because anything disappointing in it could just be fixed. Especially if they REALLY go the extra mile and include everything from past games, so even art styles wouldn't be an issue.

If they could do all that my mind would actually die, I'd go into a coma. If we get anything like this it would be a dream come true.

Its honestly more of a sign of (being way better) that we can end a game as quickly as possible rather than just spawn trap a team with a 2-0 lead for 12 minutes.

and dude, Im just saying, a nice thick cheese disc with some 'penos on it, ohhhhh boy.

You wouldnt put ketchp on a steak right? So why do it on a weird flat piece of bread with cheese sprinkled on it ?!
(.. Ill admit that analogy went out from under me)

The bigger issue here is you saying you USED to like my forge stuff :'(

will this 3 year old sparkling testimonial from jogabonita420 change your mind?

Even if they don't, campaign Forge is definitely something that the modding community will explore again, if 343i doesn't do it before them. People tend to forget that Forge in campaign missions was already a thing for every Xbox 360-era Halo game that had Forge (only on modded consoles obviously), so there is no doubt that we'll see the same happening again, especially on PC. If you really want to get into these kind of things, you should probably have a capable PC ready, when Halo: Infinite or even Halo: MCC launches on PC, because it's more likely to happen on PC than on console.

Either way, I'm very much looking forward to what people will be able to do. I think we are in for a good time.

Played some MCC at the weekend with various different setups (4v4 slayer/snipers/action sack/griffball, big team slayer/action sack etc) and found matches really quickly. Glad to see it's still working well with Reach on the way! Every match was on the "US East 2" or whatever it's called server though which was disappointing, are there no Euro folk playing on a Sunday night or is everyone chucked into US servers for quick matchmaking now?

Now there is someone with solid taste, goofball eats Halsey's proverbial dick. Speaking of the game weapons and online latency I mean.

I also put 'penos on everything.

Yep, just upgraded to a 2700x, NVMe and RTX2070 rig for my somewhat return to PC gaming. Halo and Star Citizen on public release that is.

I really hope 343/xbox embrace Halo like minecraft and PC modding. Share the content, crossplay and watch the community sell the game for you.

For what purpose? SP or MP? Both?

If for SP... the gameplay is pretty solid outside of Promethean enemies and especially the Warden Eternal. The story isn't solid at all, though, so if you have questions then feel free to ask and I'm sure some of us will try to answer them for you.

If for MP... well... I don't know what you want in your MP games. If you are more the classic type of person, they are having CE, 2 and 3 Throwback Playlists from time to time, with Halo 3 being the current one in rotation and it's actually pretty okay. If you are more the "modern" type of MP person, then Quick Play is the way to start. By far the best maps in that playlist with easy enough rules. Depending on when you play, it can actually take a while to find matches, though.

Either way. Have fun.
If you haven't played a Halo before and want to learn how weapons and vehicles work, including alternate fire modes - Big Team Super Fiesta. If you want to lock in the headshot meta, Slayer and SWAT will teach you how to think about stick control and mobility. If you want to play Campaign first it'll teach you a lot of that stuff too, but I think people want the Warden Eternal fight to be harder and more repetitive so I'm thinking maybe we make you fight him six times.
I'm playing a little bit of everything everyday, but once the campaign is done I probably won't revisit it unless I find someone to co-op it. There's a weird issue with the dialogue audio during cutscenes that I'm not sure about how to resolve. I haven't played Halo since Reach, so everything still feels weird since there's been some fairly drastic changes to the mechanics. Not sure where I'll settle in for multiplayer, but I've mostly been a 4v4 Slayer kind of person in the past.

I tried to use Forge for a bit, but the sheer breadth of options put me off after struggling with the new controls for about an hour. I'll have to dedicate a day to just that at some point.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooot! SPV3.2 looks awesome! Been playen since SPV1 awwww yeah XD Going to give this a playthrough when I get the chance and hopefully that chance is today. I actually had no idea there was anotha version coming out until literally yesterday haha. So yeah...hoooooooray! :D
Man you've been at it for like 14 years since the hayday of gearbox forums' modding community. Can't believe how much you guys have managed to dig around and upgrade this old game's guts. Huge amounts of work. I'll give it a shot for sure.
First off, thank you both for following my and the teams work for so many years. It's literally been half my life I been tinkering with this stuff and the ambition behind each projects only grows in scale. You gusy will recognize some things from SPV1 that actually make a return in this version, specifically in the Lumoria missions.
i recall seeing updates for SPV from a long time ago that looked like an entirely new game - new models, new engine, etc. this looks like a mixture of remix/mod of prior halo games + new content very much based on old assets. am i right? looks really cool regardless
We take a lot of inspiration from across the halo univese, let it be games, books, comics, toys, and in some cases, cut content. The cut content and ideas are always the most fascinating stuff to me, as you can get an idea of "what could have been".
That looks crazy! In a good way
Hopefully this time you can download it and tell us how bad or not badly we implimented sprint ;)

Are you talking Joy Love burger in Katy/Houston???

Best burgers in town hands down! They are the ultimate underrated gem.
Yep, we had one open up near willowbrook when I lived in the area.

Gotta go eat there with one other person so you can split the fries. One of those burgers and an order of fries is enough food for 2 weeks.

In Halo related news, this is likely a hot take but I LOVED Rift or whatever it was called. The throwing/scoring ball game in Halo 4.

Bring that back.

Ricochet, and yes it's an absolute travesty they didn't bring it back. Because you cannot designate a specific zone to exclusively accept throws/running goals it makes it a hassle.

Oddly enough there is scoring based on throwing versus running (which is why my basketball game works) but it would be nice to have the ability for separate goals again like in 4.

sprint in SP probably won't bother me much. I do hope to get my hands on it soon. :)

Wait, does Halo 5 have a throwing mechanic?

I just want to see a half time one in a million Spartan-worthy throwing competition to win a Warthog. Maybe some ironman-esque bikini dancing on the side, perhaps that H3 trio of Johnson to throw people off.

We're already tinkering with ways to make lines shorter and add little content and experience adjustments and tweaks for the remaining venues, so it will continually evolve into a "sweet spot" - and frankly the fan feedback this weekend was extraordinarily helpful - those guys are directly improving the experience for Philly and Houston etc.
Awesome! I'll be at the Houston event!

GG Henery. That was a slick comeback.
Late to this but here's the video


75-90 comeback! The ending is something to behold, think the other side might have been a wee bit mad.
