A place for me to self-advertise, talk about games/films/animé and keep a diary of how the comedian thing works out.
the fact that you can’t highlight words that you accidentally caps locked and hit Caps Lock to get them lowercase is the reason i can’t sleep at night
except that you can do that
then press shift + F3
WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS
April 22, 2013: the day my life changed forever
THANK YOU JEBUS
I want to love this game, but I’m struggling to even like it. That 343 went for graphics above everything else pisses me off. Weapons despawn too quickly, corpses turn to dust, enemy encounters aren’t fun. Did someone forget to put in a Promethean animation for when they take damage? They just ignore you, until they die! And not just the knights, all of them!
Tonight I was playing Spartan Ops with my wee cousin. After being killed for the 22nd time, I respawn to see him assassinate a Knight. Half way through the assassination animation, the knight just teleports out of it, behind me and then delivers a OHKO. Why is this possible? Who thought it would be fun?!
Then there’s the MP. Ordnance is a great idea! You shouldn’t get perks like damage and speed boosts though. Grenades are pointless. Plasma grenades are useless. Why is picking up replacements a perk? Who thought weapon loadouts were a good idea? Perks such as Mobility, and armour abilities are fine. Starting weapons should be standardised. Instant respawns are stupid. Kill cams useless.
My biggest problem: THE FUCKING MAPS. Mainly big maps, whereas what was needed was 4 v 4 maps. Out of 3 map packs, only one has small maps. Not good enough, given the game shipped with 2 small maps and the rest were giant.
How can anyone working on Halo not design a good radar? It’s this simple: Red dot = bad guy. If bad guy is above you, have a line come out the top of the dot. The length of the line determines the distance between you and the target. If it is below you, the line comes out the bottom of the dot. That way a player can quickly and accurately tell where the opponent is, and what floor of a building they are on, or if the foe is jet packing. SIMPLE.
The single daftest thing, though? WHAT MILITARY ORGANISATION WOULD MAKE IT’S TARGETING HUD THE SAME COLOUR AS THE FUCKING SKY?! Dark blue would work! Green, amber, anything except almost the exact same shae of blue as the GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKING SKY.
Thanks for reading.
Think you need an eye test, sir…
