Okay, I think I need to clarify.

 

The first time, it was an accident. The second time, I saw a big gun drop in for him and I thought it was an incineration cannon, so I crushed him like a soft biscuit. Sadly, it was a Spartan Laser. The idea I was trying to convey was that the booting system is not too consistent. 

Thank you for clarifying. I would like to amend my statement.

 

The booting system is working better than ever.

Aw, snap. I knew it. Amane was a dirty Innie after all! Look at how she skillfully evades capture; she must've learned that trickery from her rebel scum friends.

In other news, I think the booting system *may* have to do with your current spree - I got splattered or exploded (couldn't tell which) while I was on a running riot only a single time, yet I was given the boot option immediately.

I've made comics. I've watched them rise and crumble. The comic topic isn't doing well and we need to change that.

Lets begin by supporting the authors, old and new. Maybe I'll try my hand at them again.

Halo 2: Anniversary basically confirmed.

 

Steve Downes, Master Chief voice actor, said in an interview that you could expect Halo 5 to be delayed and Anniversary to come this year. 

 

I'll buy an Xbox One just for that.

Unfortunately, Downes later said that he was going off of the rumors he heard, same as the rest of us. Then again, this could be just be damage control from Microsoft. I'm still iffy on all of this. Microsoft hasn't been the most reliable lately when it comes to confirming release dates for their new Halo titles. I remember when they said that Spartan Assault was coming July and then it was basically halfway through the month that they finally said "hey, it's here, guys."

I've just played Halo Wars.

 

 

Turns out sending a bunch of marines against a flood horde isn't the best strategy. Within seconds, half of my 40 unit force was either dead or infected. And I was playing on Easy.

I'm still waiting for Halo Trilogy on Steam. That would be literally the only way I'd ever be able to play all three games: I never will buy a Microsoft console, and I can't stand dual analog control. It's too bad nothing has ever come of that Steam Database leak that started the whole rumor, even though almost everything else on the list has come true.

If that ever happens I would be so happy.

I'd buy it for a full $60 price tag (something I have not done for any game on Steam so far), mainly because I really want to play Halo CE and 2 without pirating them onto my computer.

that is

if my computer could run the games...which it probably could, unless they updated the graphics or something.

It always irritated me how Microsoft made Halo 2 PC Vista exclusive, with the pretty much only reason being that at the time they wanted something to tempt PC gamers into upgrading. I never was able to play it because of that, unlike Halo 1, of which I have played the entire campaign. And Halo 3 never even made it to PC. What worries me is Halo Trilogy on Steam was potentially happening, but was canceled after Valve pretty much declared war on Microsoft.

Well, remember that Halo 1 exists for Mac, as well as the demo (Silent Cartographer + Blood Gulch=free)... if you're willing to shell out $40. Eks and Zarkan, you guys can easily get ahold of Halo CE and Halo 2 for under $20 on eBay and Amazon. Heck, I got my new one on Amazon for $20 shipped, roughly. Also, any computer can run Halo: CE or Halo 2, as they are very old and have completely undemanding engines or graphics.

Um, depending on how busy I am this coming weekend, I might be up for some Legendary Spartan Ops or campaign. I'm a bit rusty though.

 

In other news, Halo 2: Anniversary is basically confirmed - some big wig at Microsoft or 343 (forgot name) has been talking on the interwebs about what would need to be done to make Halo 2 great... suspicious, eh?

 

Finally, Halo: Combat Evolved Gamespy multiplayer servers are shutting down this May, on the 31st - http://www.343indust...rs-shuttin-r937   I'm actually quite distressed about this, considering I'm insanely good at no-shields slayer and also how much fun this game was (the first Halo game I ever owned).

Hmmm. I haven't played Halo in over a month on my Xbox. I'd do Anniversary campaign (though I've never done it on Legendary before, I've got some achievements to clean up, like Breaking Quarantine and This One's For Jenkins!) or Halo 4 Spartan Ops.

 

Has anyone here read Mortal Dictata, or know someone who has? If so, I'm really curious as to what Noble Six's helmet means on the cover: http://halo.wikia.co..._Mortal_Dictata

 

That helmet is most clearly the one that Spartan B-312 left on Reach. In addition, 343 even confirmed that it got a costume prop of the same helmet from Mortal Dictata, which they referred to as belonging formerly to Noble Six.

 

TL:DR, What's Noble Six's helmet doing in Mortal Dictata, storywise?

 

Lastly, has anyone bought Spartan Assault on PC on Steam yet? I'm thinking about it, but there's no co-op, which is sad. I could buy it for Xbox 360, but there's no couch co-op...

Please let us know, Makaru!

 

Today I got my Halo UNSC Grey Woven button-down shirt in the mail. I know you'll say, "Halo clothing? Ya, right, nerd."

 

Yes, I'm a nerd, but there is some reasoning - it's on sale for 50% off @ $19.99, which is a steal for a button-down shirt. In addition, I wear some kind of button-down shirt every single day, so it's not like I'm buying some useless fashion accoutrement. Lastly, the logo that identifies it as being nerdy is relatively small and unobtrusive compared to many other nerdy shirts, so I can actually wear it in public without fear of the shame being poured upon my head. 

 

It's also comfy.

 

I turned on my Xbox for the first time in over a month and a half to play a couple rounds of Ninja Assassins. Increased my Energy Sword commendation a fair bit. The gametype is really fun and fast paced, but as I only got to play on the same map (Abandon - which I love), it got a little repetitive in terms of the gameplay. It's definitely challenging, given the lack of radar and the difficulty of fighting people with Ninja Level 3, but I was hoping that we would get active camo in some way to make us invisible, but it's still great fun and I highly recommend it to any of you guys who are still playing Halo 4.
