    Halo Online downfall

    343 isn't actually that bad, some poor decisions in terms of making new Halos but they're excellent when it comes to community interaction.

    Halo Online downfall

    FYI That wasn't 343, that was Microsoft. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/eldewrito-community-content "Today we want to let our community know that Microsoft has initiated actions to protect its Halo intellectual property in the wake of the recent “ElDewrito” PC release. Community created content has long been a key pillar in the Halo franchise and something we have continuously sought to support – from the early beginnings of Red vs. Blue to Forge-made maps & modes to the “Halo Custom Edition” to original recent fan creations like “Installation 01.” These projects, and others like them, have one key factor in common – they fit within Microsoft’s established content usage guidelines. Back in 2014, Microsoft, 343 and Sabre Interactive partnered to develop “Halo Online” – a title that was being developed exclusively for the Russian market. The game was subsequently put on indefinite hold but Halo Online ended up in the wild beyond its intended audience and official scope, resulting in DMCA takedown notices being issued by Microsoft. As time went by, Halo Online faded and fell off the radar until the recent exposure of the .6 update shined a new light on the current ElDewrito project. While we are humbled and inspired to see the amount of passion poured into this project, the fact remains that it’s built upon Microsoft-owned assets that were never lawfully released or authorized for this purpose. As this project reverberated across the community, our team took a step back to assess the materials and explore possible avenues, while Microsoft, like any company, has a responsibility to protect its IP, code and trademarks. It’s not optional in other words. We’d like to clear up a few areas of confusion we’ve seen across the community over the past few days regarding ElDewrito and other fan-made projects. In the case of the original Halo Custom Edition, that was as a specific add-on to Halo PC to officially empower the mod and content creation community to essentially go nuts with Halo: Combat Evolved (it even required a valid Halo PC retail key). More recently, Installation 01 has garnered some buzz and even made headlines for receiving a thumbs-up from 343. Installation 01 is an original work, built from the ground up in a separate engine, that abides by Microsoft’s content usage guidelines. With Halo Online, there’s a common misconception that once it was canceled, the assets were either turned over as “open source” or left for the community’s whims as “abandonware” – neither of which is actually true. Not only did Microsoft issue takedown notices at the time of the original leaks, but many elements of that underlying code and content are still actively being used today and will continue to be in the future. As Microsoft’s need to protect its IP spun up, we reached out to members of the ElDewrito team to have an open discussion about the project and the admittedly difficult situation we all find ourselves in. The ElDewrito team is understandably upset at this outcome given the time they’ve each invested in this project, but they understand the legal implications and the need to press pause on this work. One thing remains clear – the community really wants more Halo on PC. As we look ahead, we’re very excited about the prospects of an official classic Halo experience making its way to PC and we hope to be able to partner with the ElDewrito team and broader mod and content creation community to help inform the types of experiences and features our fans desire. While we have nothing to announce today, please know that the PC community is very important to us and top of mind as we work towards the future. We’d like to extend our thanks to the community at large for constantly pouring so much passion into Halo. While it’s unfortunate to find ourselves as the bearers of bad legal news, the outpouring of support and excitement is inspiring and together, in partnership with this community, we believe we can really do great things for the future of Halo. Thank you"

    Anime Suggestions

    Well let me start off with saying Bleach is garbage. Now that that's out of the way, I'm gonna recommend my all time favorite anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. An absolute classic.

    For Honor

    For Honor is a game that just came out where you can play as either a knight, a viking, or a samurai, and duel it out against others in either a 1v1/2v2 brawl, or 4v4 in either elimination, deathmatch, or point capture. As someone who thought this game was gonna be actual dogshit and was actually surprised how much I enjoyed it when I played it, let me lay it down. I have 3 main gripes with the game. First off, there's the P2P connection, which actually isn't TERRIBLE for 1v1, but dedicated servers would have been a MUCH better option for a game like this, especially for the 4v4 modes. Secondly, there's the ability to buy the in game currency with real life money. This wouldn't be a bad thing if the cosmetic armors didn't have stat adjustments added to them in the 4v4 modes, and would be at least a little bit better if the rate that you earned the in game currency was a bit faster. Last thing is something that isn't a problem with MOST people, but can be an issue regardless, is the fact that you HAVE to be online to play the game. For a game that comes with a single player campaign, and people likely picking it up for just the campaign wouldn't be able to if they did not have an internet connection. It's not as bad as the Sim City debacle, but is still worth noting. On to the good things. The gameplay is fantastic, it's simple enough that you can easily pick it up, but has enough depth to it that makes it hard to master it completely. Think of it like a fighting game, where a newer player can pick the game up and do some basic things really easily, but an experienced good player can pull off some amazing combos with relative ease. The animations are on point, attack animations look and feel as if they have weight to them, parries feel incredibly satisfying, the characters movement feels good to how they look, and the various movements in combat seems very spot on to how one would expect a knight, viking, or samurai to move. The game runs EXTREMELY well, and looks very good even on low settings. A GTX 970 can run the game at a solid 60 FPS at 1080p at max settings minus supersampling anti-aliasing with only around 2 of the 3.5 usable VRAM being used. Given that I don't have a rig with a card that can run 4k, I can't say how well it runs on max at 4k. Honestly I do believe this game is a good game, outside of those glaring issues. If you like games with good sword play and enjoyable battles, it's a good pick up. TL;DR Its an actual good game made by Ubisoft, who would've thought Gameplay video on how to properly play:

    For Honor

    Bumping this because of big changes that came through recently, such as dedicated servers, changes to the fight system (that make the game much better), and some reworks/buffs to characters who couldnt stay competitive with the rest of the cast, with more coming later in the year. Lag compensation is also being added relatively soon. Game is in a pretty playable state right now, though I'd still wait on a sale to get it.

    Where are you now in relation to when you joined the forum

    Where are you now in relation to when you joined the forum

    So I joined about 6 years ago, and I can't imagine how different my life actually would be if I hadn't signed up. I wasn't really active until 6 months later and was pretty fucking autistic but I'd like to think I'm slightly better now. As this forum started dying down I actually got invested in League of Legends forums and am heavily involved in their General Discussion community. As cringy as it may sound, that's kinda how I met my current girlfriend, who of which I'd actually want to spend my life with. This forum originally got me interested in programming, but even though that fell through, it helped me find what I wanted to do for a career, which was in servers. I just recently graduated from a tech school for network administration and am just kinda sorta relaxing for a year or two before I go into a serious job for that. I actually have some job opportunities open right now, one with a cable/internet company, and the other with the city I live in, so I may take one of them up. I'm kind of surprised how me joining some forum about some Minecraft griefers would affect my life so much, and in the end made me a happier person.

    For Honor

    Bumping this Game is currently in a free weekend until the 14th I believe, they've fixed a lot of issues the game had at launch. It's not perfect yet, but it's getting there. Season 3 starts the 15th and sometime in during that season we're getting dedicated servers.

    Super Smash Bros. Melee

    I wanted to get into it at one point but considering it's a 16 year old game that's been solved by pro players of the game, watching it is boring at this point. I still can't see it as more than a party game still.

    Bill Nye the Science (((GOY)))

    Bill Nye as propagandist is truly genius, you take an authority figure from people's childhoods and re-purpose them as a regime-in-exile mouthpiece.
